Track Name: "More Light"
Light, more light
The still life is contradicting the living nature
Let's go outside
You bring the canvas
I'll bring the nomenclature
4 hours on
Starting at daybreak
Hours wore on
What have we captured?

Tone, in two
The light and the shadow fighting for influence
Let's go inside
I got your canvas
You got the game you shot
8 hours on
Back home by nightfall
Cold and worn
And what have we captured?

The flooding light
The drifting light
The pouring light
The glinting light
The dividing light

More light, more light
Track Name: "Blue & Green"
Deep in the future where the silence started
Move toward the light and then the science parted Now
Looking back out your eyes

Time is a river with no banks or beaches
A wave from the distance is a wave to the destined now
The future's never gone nowhere

Oh look fast!
The ground moves past
The blue and green


Deep in a valley in a deep depression
Behind the summit has the sun's florescence grown
The shadows push against the stones

A wreath round the temples and on the heads of honor
A ring round the finger on the hand of fortune, gold
that time would never make you old

Oh look fast!
The ground moves past
The blue and green

Home is where you turn from it
Go home
Track Name: "Saturday"
I waited for you on a hill
When will you come around
On a saturday

Lay the vines out wild
Lay the vines out child
In the morning, in the night

On a saturday

I waited for you on a hill
When will you be around
On a saturday
Track Name: Reelin' in the Years
Your everlasting summer
You can see it fading fast
So you grab a piece of something
That you think is gonna last
But you wouldn't know a diamond
If you held it in your hand
The things you think are precious
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

You been tellin' me you're a genius
Since you were seventeen
In all the time I've known you
I still don't know what you mean
The weekend at the college
Didn't turn out like you planned
The things that pass for knowledge
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

I spend a lot of money
And I spent a lot of time
The trip we made in Hollywood
Is etched upon my mind
After all the things we've done and seen
You find another man
The things you think are useless
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine

Are you reelin' in the years
Stowin' away the time
Are you gatherin' up the tears
Have you had enough of mine
