COOL WATER

*VELLEITY
vɛˈliːɪti/
nounformal
noun: velleity; plural noun: velleities

- a wish or inclination not strong enough to lead to action.*

Does it matter where we're going?
Does it matter where we've been?
There's a reason we're all happy,
It's the season of the will.

But it matters where we're going,
there's the matter of where we've been.
Is there a reason we were sleeping,
dreaming dreams we thought were real?

Velleity, back to hell with thee.
Velleity, don't bother me.

I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.
I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.

Does it matter we were empty?
Does it matter all was false?
There is no freedom in a kingdom
with a king of hollow and a queen of gloss.
It doesn't matter that we're empty,
all that matters is we dream,
our stagnant wishes to be happy,
are the million pennies that you reap from fountains.

Velleity, back to hell with thee.
Velleity, don't bother me.

I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.
I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life.

Velleity, no more....no more...

I've been down with the dead,
millions of bones,
millions of souls singing
live your life......

Track Name: Decisions Decisions
DECISIONS DECISIONS

"Time is no illusion,
time is going to take you away".

So there's no confusion
my mind is at a crossroads everyday.

Procrastination is the thief of time,

But if I come undone,
I'll be broken like everyone.

There's a million pieces to fall over,
There's a million dreams just laid bare,
There's a million lightbulbs going on and off and on.

There's a million reasons not to care.

Oh, this ship is rudderless,
Oh, this ship may yet go down.
Do we get into the lifeboats,
Bail into the lifeboats before we drown,
The captain in his lifevest,
He weighs it patiently,
He's thinking "how many empty lifeboats
at the bottom of the sea?"

Every hour of every day,
every minute of every of hour,
Every hour of every day,
every minute of every hour...

There's a million pieces to fall over,
There's a million dreams just laid bare,
There's a million lightbulbs going on and off and on.

There's a million reasons not to care.

My mind is at a crossroads every hour,
My mind is at a crossroads every day,
Every hour of every day,
every minute of every hour...

There's a million pieces to fall over,
There's a million dreams just laid bare,
There's a million lightbulbs going on and off and on.

There's a million reasons not to care.

There's a million pieces to fall over,
There's a million dreams just laid bare,
There's a million lightbulbs going on and off and on.

There's a million reasons not to care.......

Track Name: Stealing Stars
STEALING STARS

Now that the monsters are known,
and the river's as dry as a bone,
We gotta steal away the stars,
pack them in our cars and drive away.
Over the oceans,
we take our devotions
we know that we gotta go.
Over the oceans,
alive with emotions,
we know that we do not owe them
for a century of lies and greed,
an easy chair made of deceit.
It's easy when you start,
it's easy when you start
to lie and cheat.

And they think that when they close their eyes
that no one else can see...

That ghosts glide from the grave
The Sleepless souls of the brave.
"Look alive, look what we gave."

Oh, how the monster has grown,
yet devoured by one of its own.
They get to steal away the land,
to build on shifting sands,
and hide away.

And they think that when they close their eyes
that no one else can see...

But without our devotion,
adrift on the ocean
they'll have no place to go.
With no stars to guide them,
they'll rip and divid,
they'll turn on their very own...

As ghosts glide from the grave
The sleepless Souls of the Brave.
"Look alive, look what we gave."
Yeah, ghosts glide from the grave
The restless Souls of the Brave.
"Look alive, look what we gave."

You do a bitter wrong,
you do a bitter wrong,
you do a bitter wrong,
you do a bitter wrong.

...and when it all goes dark,
and none of them can see,
we'll know it in our hearts,
that it was you and me who stole the stars.

Track Name: Poor Boy
POOR BOY

Are you held back by some people who just don't understand?
Out at sea and sinking, and hoping for dry land?
Crying over milk you spilt, and trying to blame the cow?
Trying hard to make it work, but just can't out how?

Poor Boy with no ability
to see your own responsibility.
Poor boy without the reason
not to see it all as an act of treason.

Are you waiting on the reaperbird to come and cut you down?
Waiting on the anti-christ to come and steal your soul?
Hoping on some holyjoe to open up your eyes?
Waiting on your politics to get caught telling lies?

Oh how your head is spinning around,
just when you though you were winning a round
The wool's pulled over, the rug's pulled from under,
It's everybody else fault that your world falls asunder.

Poor Boy with no ability
to see your own responsibility.
Poor boy without the reason
not to see it all as an act of treason.

Poor Boy, Poor Boy, Poor Boy, Poor Boy......

Track Name: Spinning Wheels
SPINNING WHEELS

One day some rats made a puppet,
a puppet on a string,
and the puppet it made a monster,
to ease control of everything.
So stay in your box,
'cause the monster is running.
Stay in your box,
'cause the monster might come.
Stay in your box,
'cause the monster is building,
a box for your daughter and a box for your son.

You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're standing still,
as your wheel is spinning.
You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're laughing still,
'cause your wheel is still spinning.

Now the monster made a puppet,
a puppet to pay the rat,
and the rats they made a monster,
to pay the puppet back.
So stay at your wheel,
'though the monster is driving.
Stay at your wheel,
'cause there is work to be done.
Stay at the wheel,
keep your nose to the grindstone,
a wheel for your daughter and a wheel for your son.

You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're standing still,
as your wheel is spinning.
You are racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're laughing still,
'cause your wheel is still spinning.

Corrupt political will
hangs like a noose round this neck of the woods,
Bankrupt and cynical shills
claim that it's all for the common good.
As they fill our pockets up with debt,
and we hang our heads under further threats,
unjust political will
tightens the noose round this neck of the woods.

You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're standing still,
as your wheel is spinning.
You are racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're laughing still,
'cause your wheel is still spinning.

And they don't hear a voice when you demonstrate,
'cause their money don't talk, it dictates...

Track Name: A Seam of Gold
A SEAM OF GOLD

Digging in the dirt
for a treasure long turned to dust.
You've forgotten how to feel,
but you dream, you dream, you must
I know there's a seam of gold in your heart
Although it's rock, although it's cold, a seam of gold.

Now, I know that feel let down by everyone
But I know that you dream of love...

Love's where the sunshine comes through.
Those days when the earth falls from you.
Up from those valleys you'll come,
Your search over, life has begun.

Diggin in the dirt,
Why would you ever bury it?
Oh! the hurt, Oh, the hurt.
Yeah, I know that feel let down by everyone
But I know that you dream of love.

Love's where the sunshine comes through.
Those days when the earth falls from you.
Up from those valleys you'll come,
Your search over, life has begun.
Your search over, life has begun.
Your search over, life has begun.
Your search over, life has begun.

Track Name: Save Me with Love
SAVE ME WITH LOVE

The life of lies that I strived to attain,
while adrift on a ship named Calamity.
The grand illusions that I'd entertain,
as the lies of life dug their claws in me.

My love,
I never had a reason to be,
or ever had the means to deal
with every other treason of my will
I can't deny.

Without a paddle I was tossed into the creek,
no tools for life and no techniques.
Low in stature and of no physique,
I'd never courage,
but had some cheek.

My love,
I never had a reason to be,
or ever had the means to deal
with every other treason of my will
I can't deny.

BREAK

My love,
I never had a reason to be,
or ever had the means to deal
with every other treason of my will
I can't deny.
My love,
I never had a reason to be,
or ever had the means to deal
For every other season of my will
it's you and I.

I've found you now,
I'm never gonna let go.
I've found you now,
I'm never gonna let go.
Save me with love,
Save me with love,
You save me with Love
Save me with Love...

Track Name: Good Red Road
GOOD RED ROAD

I' m numb since the coming of the winters wind.
Numb since the fallin of the autumn leaves.
The mind, so easily decieved
But the soul is strong enough to believe.

And a thousand miles an hour, babe,
as far as we can go,
Yeah, we're following the moon signs
to the Good Red Road.

Sometimes you need a shaking,
sometimes you need a break from your life.
The mind so easily decieved,
but the soul is strong enough to believe.

And a thousand miles an hour, babe,
as far as we can go,
and we're following the moon signs
to the Good Red Road....
And a thousand miles an hour babe
as far as we can go,
Yeah, we're following the moon signs
to the good red road.

Oh ha, oh ha, oh ha,
oh ha, oh, how long...
Oh ha, oh ha, oh ha,
Oh how, oh now, home...

Track Name: Muddy Water
MUDDY WATER

All these lives with nothing in them,
All these lines that we draw,
All these lies with nothing to them,
This is not a life no more
That's the thing with muddied water,
you never know how deep it goes

I saw you,
singing among the stars,
being the way you are,
Singing among the stars,
Now, I have found my heart.

All these days that we're given,
All these ways to know we're born,
All,these ways we're forgiven,
All these things that we scorn

I saw you,
singing among the stars,
being the way you are,
Singing among the stars,
Now, I have found my heart.

That's the thing with muddied water,
You never know how deep it goes,
Lucky me, I heard you singing
and I, I grabbed my heart before it froze

I saw you,
singing among the stars,
being the way you are,
Singing among the stars,
Now, I have found my heart
Now I have found my heart,
Now I have found my heart
singing among the stars
singing among the stars
singing among the stars

That's the thing with muddy water,
You never know how deep it goes,
That's the thing with muddy water,
You never know how deep it is.

Track Name: The Wood Beyond the River
THE WOOD BEYOND THE RIVER

And the old men say
Don't ever go down
to the wood beyond the river,
to the wood beyond the river.

They say your soul gets hollow,
And there ain't no one to follow you down,
to the wood beyond the river.
The wood beyond the river.

They say your heart gets weak,
as your blood begins to reek,
and your eyes begin to seek the light of morning
in the wood beyond the river,
in the wood beyond the river.

And darkness surrounds,
as your faint heart pounds,
'cause any sense of courage has left you,
Yeah, any sense of courage has left you
in the wood beyond the river,
in the wood beyond the river.

And you'll gamble for your soul,
but you won't have the cards to hold,
You'll be standing at the gates with the devil,
Yeah, standing at the gates with the devil.
In the wood beyond the river,
In the wood beyond the river,
In the wood beyond the river.....
The wood beyond the river.
