1.
This is just a story of the kind of glory That can belong to a free man Of the road less travelled Where every day’s a battle And any way takes all that he can No one knows his secrets Not one would believe it If they could see or just understand A man without a purpose except for what his worth is And music is a voice to his hands He travels the land, a traveling man With dirt on his hands, this traveling man

I came out here to get paid And I want minimum wage The street corner is my stage Concrete blocks are the page And I’m the pen I salt and pepper my days Hoping that I don’t waste time Working hard to replace A 9 to 5 with a 5 to 9 I gotta come out into the light It’s such a beautiful thing When you give all that you bring up for A life of love and you sing The beauty of your own human being You got to come out into the light I tuck the future away Inside a pocket of faith Take my wisdom as pay I know that I’ll find a way To survive If I can come out into the light…

Caught Up 03:56
(you’ll never know the answer, until you know the question) I’m sitting watching reasons Why we’re living Why the birds and bees And why there’s no beginning to it all When man came from a crawl Today I relive everything we’re given From other halves to strangers Caught up in the rhythm of it all But aren’t we all so small After all… Why are we caught up in mysteries Why are we caught up in love Why are we living in history Why are we looking above It’s something within us So why do we get caught up at all I wish that I could see this every moment That this love affair would be there In the morning with the dawn To stop me when I yawn So as I feel this vision slowly slipping I try to write it down From the beginning of it all But I cannot recall, after all… Why are we caught up in mysteries Why are we caught up in love Why are we living in history Why are we looking above It’s something within us So why do we get caught up at all Sad it’s the love Why are we caught up in mysteries Why are we caught up in love Why are we living in history Why are we looking above It’s something within us So why do we get caught up at all (everybody wants to know about happiness, but they’ve got it right in the middle of their heart and they don’t know it)
4.
Don’t you sweat what happens down the line The past is gone away It’s lessons are in you babe And here right now you know What is upon you Don’t you sweat what happens down the line Don’t think of all the money you’ll make Or the hearts you’ll have to break It’s your choice to mistake What are you proud of Don’t you sweat what happens down the line Please listen Where have you been I know you want to start From the beginning again It’s in every moment Please listen…
The future is a whim Your decisions are making it And here right now it is The only answer What are you waiting for? Please listen… (what about the future? to hell with it, it’s nothing to worry about)
5.
Mirage 01:09
(so you’re stuck with me Forever Period There’s no way around it ‘Cause I don’t care how much it hurts Or how much pain I go through I’m still gonna survive this ‘Cause I ain’t gonna leave this planet without my friend And I’m not gonna leave him without me So there it is I love you)
6.
Never There 06:12
On the roads of life there are setbacks When the feeling’s right you forget that And I know that you’re so tired and alone (me too) But just look at how much you’ve grown Soon you’re gonna be back on the top again And having it your way Up in the air And everything you thought you knew Is gonna start fading away ‘Cause you’re never there… In the middle life there is no living It’s the pain we fight that is the beginning Of so much joy Soon you’re gonna be back on the top again And having it your way Up in the air And everything you thought you knew Is gonna start fading away ‘Cause you’re never there… It’s in this moment that we rise In this moment that we are alive In this moment that you find Everything and nothing At the same time Soon you’ll fall to your knees again Then rise up higher than you’ve ever been To the flow of life I will listen For gravity when it is given to me And I know if I just let go I will live it ‘Cause you’re never there Until you forget it Forget it now… (If you’ve got any brains at all you’ll live, you’ll learn Do you know what you’re talking about? Just day by day you’ll learn wisdom Damn right Getting the job done Yes…)
7.
Eventually 05:02
Yes it is the season Where the leaves do have a reason To be falling down Gravity will seize them And convince them to believe in A common ground Oh I fantasize About the changing of the tides And all the possibilities The leaves are butterflies Floating on the windy skies And they all are free Eventually there’s no better way around it You’ve got to let go and be brave Roll on up your sleeves And be one with the leaves For a day Yes it is the season to be all that you believe in ‘Cause you’re better off that way Let go of the past Take the future off your back And go where you may Eventually there’s no better way around it You’ve got to let go and be brave Roll on up your sleeves And fall onto your knees And pray Eventually there’s no better way You’ve got to leave before you come home to stay Oh eventually there’s no better way To move on You’re going away…

Every day he sleeps in Eats what he can eat and Hits the streets For dollars and sense Posted on the corner Folks think he’s a goner But he ain’t runnin’ short On no rent All the time he’s playing Everything is changing ‘Cause he can’t keep his mind In no pen Sings the songs of joy and Smiles just like a boy when His music’s makin’ All of his ends He wanders the streets With a traveler’s peace
He wonders in sleep How the river runs deep
9.
(Hahaha I really like you’re shoes It’s fingerlicious) The lone finger long in hand Living off the fruit of the land Asking Buddha to gank a chicken For the soul Met him years ago and ever since We’ve become the best of friends Sharing coffee or a cigarette On the porch A hard headed, clever man At the heart of the situation Staring starward from the river bed As he floats down At the helm on the boat with the band That’s why they call him the captain Pointing forward to the road again ‘Cause he knows where it goes Headed out to sea alone On his last legs, in his last home Smoking tobacco that he rolled Or a new pack of Old Gold Pointing forward, looking on Mister lone finger man Captain man (Finger loves you)
10.
Out To Sea 02:39
They won't find me in the water (Christopher The music has moved outside I’m getting furious I’m coming over there if this doesn’t stop The party is over)
11.
Temptation 05:31
Dancing with the devil In the sky at nine Wanting to experience All the pleasures Of desire The colors of the sunset Lead me into regret Temptation is all I see Around me Dancing with the devil In the sky at 9 Wanting to escape All of God’s design The fire burns so bright On the inside Temptation is all I see Around me Temptation is all I see In misery Dancing with the devil In disguise as a girl Wanting to undress her Let her hair unfurl Creamy buttery skin I want to kiss it And own her with my love Give her all that I got Don’t think it over Help me Temptation is all I see Around me Temptation is all I see In misery (Be careful, be careful with temptation ‘Cause it can mislead you)
12.
(I think that was me dying)
13.
No Right 04:50
I’ve started losing faith In the modern man All that he sees is all He understands Or even worse yet He’s completely blind And what he calls faith Is his weakness in disguise Always on the look out For what he got, got, got Never give a lick About those who have not Living for the vow Of a better now But he’s coming of age And he’s looking around Bring back all my light That you took without no right Grew up as a young child With a smile Learned about love Learned about hate Learned through his trials Set his sights so far he could se The gold tower lines At the end of the sea But he’s been lost in the middle Singing… Bring back all my light That you took without no right No right… Saw him downtown in a suit Just yesterday He rocks that pinstripe Causin’ all of this hype At an office in LA Got himself an entourage Of the people that don’t have no cause They’re just a mirage A mirage… Singing…. Bring back all my light That you took without no right (You got to make a change)
14.
Twilight 01:12
(Hello And I thought to myself It’s a strange thing to have given ones life over And to find Life given right back Worth is life)
15.
No one left to call on Nowhere left to call home His strength of will is fading away But even when he doubts it He feels that he’s surrounded By signs that say that this is the way All his clothes are tattered But that don’t really matter His dignity will always be deep And even though he shouts it He’s always been about it This man will never part with the street He lives for today With no debt to pay He’s sees his own way In the journeys that say
16.
The fog rolled in Over the hills And into sin Through the veil I can hear them crying The valley bends Follows the river Deep within To the heart of the city Where everything is dying Save my soul And carry me home Take me down To the water Crowds running Buildings are crumbling To the pavement Dance and turn to dust An old man sits Clenching both his fists In the one he holds The seeds of my destruction In the other My only saving grace Save my soul And carry me home Take me down To the water Patience… The water drips through the stone Save my soul And carry me home Take me down Save my soul And carry me home Take me down To the water

Broken City 01:29
(From a long line of men Sacrifice Conviction Character Worth means destiny, courage, and bravery to me It is the name of my ancestor Who died saving a downed whaler ship In Nantucket island in the late 18th century)
18.
Such as the river Such is life Flowing down the hill Into the sky Out to sea Travelling wherever This world takes me How now I am a cloud Soon to Be coming down To the river Back to life Following the gravity To light Oh moon I’m coming home soon Back to The warmth of your womb Through the river The current holds me close So I can’t fight Daylight Sun shining bright Bringing Me back to life To the river
Through the river Flowing down the hill into the sky (rebirth…)
19.
Rain Cover 05:24
Boy I came on out To see the show Showed up late Played the part of the song That I did not know So I could relate What I need and I got After all this time of my life Is to sit down and rest Without falling Falling behind Boy I came on out to catch a ride Showed up late All the rest of my classmates Got to go inside I had to wait At the gate in the front With the teller Talking ‘bout life All the patterns we see And the purpose Of being so blind Need a rain cover in my mind Boy I came on out To set it right Save tonight Turned my back on the path That I knew was right Denied my insight What I feel is a maze And I’m crazy Most all of the time Rushing in, falling back Am I lazy Or am I living my life Need a rain cover in my mind And the rain pouring down in my mind Fills me up inside Drowning out all the pain All the lies Killing off my pride If I just follow the feelings Let them be wrong Let them be right I will know in time If I just follow the feeling Inside Need a rain cover in my mind

Space Bar 03:51
(As long as you have created a situation in your life That causes sadness You deserve it Damn it, shit You deserve it like hell And you know it Sadness Healthy Sadness is healthy? Absolutely Sorrow and regret within your heart It’s making me blue, really blue Let it be until it comes upon you And then face the mustard Yes, yes, yes, shhh… What drives you to defy all odds What makes you jump off of that cliff Into that infinite abyss That scares the life out of you What the hell’s going on? Worth is dead You’re growing up Let me tell you something you already know The world today just doesn’t understand The modern man taking a stand For something he can no longer comprehend So I invite you all to think about your lives Unobstructed by the lies And filter the poison they are spooning While the masses contribute by mindlessly consuming Take self eulogy, it’s proof you see Proof of simple living Simplicity in a complex serendipity Informing us to conform us But we’re all born to be broken Journeys and pathways of self worth unspoken So take solitude and sit with it For there is no one else who can accomplish this This is it: you and you alone Just a few parts that make up the whole Self worth is measured by your six foot soul It survives you… When I’ve given up all that doesn’t matter All the rest is gone What remains What still has value Continually giving yourself to the world and those around you So much so that when you are spent The universe will fill you up again In the solitary caverns Of a clear and focused mind Lies the power of transformation I don’t think it’s a secret at all Just enjoy it Be here now Don’t lose faith You’re destiny is greater than you think it is At the end there’s nothing but you)

Mirrors 01:49
(Worth You’re worth Integrity Every being on the planet Has intrinsic worth Every generation Makes the universe turn Deserves our respect Worth is my choice Action, value To invest myself My relationships with people How much soul, essence You allow yourself to grow Worth speaks my priorities honestly Who I am matters Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Worth is who I am beyond the mirror Sacrifice In this moment Sanity Endurance Spirit It’s not easy Perfect And ultimate dignity Triumph What you are And lasting memory Value What I project on every single person Worth is power Immortal It is where I am going All the best for you It is the hardships that I have struggled And overcome What, honestly, worth means to us Whatever it is Pulls in a deeper question inside of us Worth is us Evolving every day towards something greater What you do for other people Being good for something The end of a long road and why you started in the first place It’s how I affect the people around me in a positive way We get sucked into patterns of defining our worth Money By our possessions The real measure of one’s worth comes from within Making room in my heart Character For the colors of the universe It’s something that you’re working for Waking up every single morning What’s it worth And doing the one thing What’s it worth That genuinely makes you happy Worth every minute, worth every second It’s what you believe Living to the fullest extent Believe in ourselves Something special, rare Our own self worth Self worth makes this life worthwhile Is art worth something? Is music worth something? So worth the attention To be worth is art Make an impact What you depend on The love A family that I can trust and rely on Brothers and sisters Every person Love for those people - that’s worth And love for myself The community Compassion Worth so much The heart It’s disappearing Worth is the ripple we send into the world Love The culmination of my life It’s worth it I want to give you some love I love you Lots of love A lot I wanted you to know We are able to change the world You are worth That’s it There you have it You are wonderful Thank you worth Keep doing what you’re doing See you in the future Ciao Goodbye)

Music 05:48
I remember days kickin’ it on the street Had a bit of soul so I was rockin’ a beat Just for my people Or some old hip hop was on A little bit of one of my favorite songs It was so good to be to Scratch that and I’m coming back Hit the beat like a heart attack On the redo Tell my mom and dad step back Watch me kick this music act Like I do They say son You never know When you get old Your regrets are gonna grow I got music on my own Does it mean I’m alone Weekdays from twelve to six Catch me on Broadway or fifth Got a red box right there With a cardboard sign That says Now Is All You Have With my man Phil Bondy Kickin’ on the buckets And he’s next to me Hit the block for an hour straight Hop two down to Pioneer Place Stack another forty bucks Push it on the weekend So we pay the rent up Playin’ on the street to get paid Each and every week of the day This man walks up And says boy You never know When you get old Your regrets are gonna grow I got music on my own Does it mean I’m alone I’m alone… 
I got friends, folks Life’s no joke I make it as I follow my heart I got these people looking at me While I’m playing on the street So freely I got music on my own Does it mean I’m alone
23.
Now 02:26
(You’re not going to find out what the mystery of life is Life is not a mystery To love people To love each other Be good to each other I don’t even know the question Let alone the answer I’d like to see our family be put back together Something positive towards saving the world You ever thought that through Christopher What the hell’s going on next door? It’s midnight, it’s 11:44 And I’ll the sudden I’m hearing drumming And if I can hear it I know the Johnsons can hear it I don’t know what you’re negotiating with people on But this is just not gonna happen I mean it’s not gonna work for me)
24.
Silence 01:54
(there is nothing so profound as the silence that surrounds my words did you catch the silence? now... now... wait not now now... no just before now where's the silence? now... where's the silence? always apply the notion gently, gently, gently la mente te trata de confundir pero tu corazon siempre te dice la verdad)
