Taking Flight (Pop Rock Haiku) You say you don’t think you can And so you believe Now let’s just give it a look 
 Well I can help start you off We’ve all used a hand This is how we move along 
 So come on and sing it out Song’s now in motion, Don’t leave it there just hangin’  
Graylands fade to forever We can run them all Or some day take to the air    
 I smile in recognition Have to shake my head At all the things we could do

Jumping Walls Got a billion times more than everything I need Now let’s get those palisades up on the street A 1000 feet tall, made of iron, brass and clay We’ll set the new foundation, and none of us will ever have to pay Got our sights set on Asia, casinos in the Mideast Third world luxury condos, the corner of Easy Street Shiny sweet deals, greased pockets out of reach Hi-rise sand castles and the world’s first waterless beach Woah, climbing walls it’s time to go Takin’ ‘em down for some light to see Woah, jumping walls so high you know Breakin’ ‘em down to set the future free   There’s truth to carry the day, truth to carry the day
 Thinkin’ about startin’ my own religion Just the other day had a wonderful vision An angel in a circle with a sword of fire Said “Have no fear, you can’t go wrong Just keep preachin’ to the choir
 Woah, climbing walls it’s time to go Takin’ ‘em down for some light to see… Woah, jumping walls so high you know Breakin’ ‘em down to set the future free   There’s truth to carry the day, love to strengthen the heart   Light to water the seed, Some light to water the seed
 So you need to raise arms, you can take the next level Go out and find yourself some poor, sorry devil If they don’t want your cure, try and sell a new disease Let the Masters of Smoke Artistry, do their sure fire thing”
 Woah, climbing walls it’s time to go Tearin’ ‘em down for some sky to see Woah, jumping walls somehow you know Cracking ‘em down to let the future breathe There’s truth to carry the day, truth to carry the day  Woah, climbing walls it’s time to go Tearin’ ‘em down for some sun to see Woah, jumping walls somehow you know Crackin’ em down to let the future breathe There’s truth to carry the day, Love to strengthen the heart  Light to water the seed, Some light to water the seed Woah, climbing walls it’s time to go Takin’ ‘em down for sunlight to see Woah, jumping walls somehow you know Breakin’ em down to set the future free

Love Stands (Standing Wins) There is no end to the innocence, the light runs through your hair And it’s just what we’re here for -- shadows mean nothing here And if we live in a wilderness, we’ll catch glimpses here and there Of a day in soul this love keeps shining, and for all that we can bare. We’ll drink it up, and take it home We’ll pass it on, and watch it grow It’s something real we’ll keep inside It’s just the thing to warm the night And it’s all right, you’ve got a smile that lights your way Anyone can hold you tight, though I was thinking you’d like to stay Or we can keep pushing on through Like all those times we used to do But darlin’ don’t we know now, love don’t fight—Love stands And it looks like today we’re in for something new -- Standing wins. Could you care for a summer breeze, some buried treasure Or bamboo trees? So long in tending And childish it would seem Making believe and pretending long before anyone else could see It’s something real we’ll keep inside Those sheltering wings, that open sky If it seems unclear, it’s all you’d think Given a simple understanding— Like it’s such a easy thing Well it’s all right, you’ve got a smile that lights your way… And it looks like today we’re in for something new -- Standing wins

Pastor Needs a New Jet
 We don’t set our riches In a house the devil owns You know wide is the gate, narrow the road There’s places to go, souls we haven’t saved just yet  We need to bow our heads, Pastor needs a new jet
 The lord loves a giver, one that everyone can see And folks who remind us, practice what you preach Serve your politicians, but church is still your best bet We need a rally, Pastor needs a new jet He’s ready to break out some inspiring… tailored suits And the new bust of his wife looks great with those sapphire shoes Driving that Bentley, to the lakefront summer home There’s just one thing of many, that they haven’t yet flown 
 You know it’s ashes to ashes and dust to dust   If you don’t have cash, borrow if you must It’s been a long time coming, working to pay your debt We need to make that step — Pastor needs a new jet Well we’ve launched a great campaign You can toss a little something extra in the plate We’ve nearly reached the mark for that high prize Of our calling… in this quarter So stand back, yeah you can stand on by For that miracle to fly, right into our hands  Don’t envy your neighbor the fine things they own If you hear God calling, you answer the phone  We don’t have room for a shuttle to the moon, just yet We need to walk the faith, Pastor needs a new jet So stand back, stand by For that miracle to fly Pastor needs a new jet Stand back, stand by For that favor from on high Pastor needs a new jet Stand back, stand by For that big white dove in the sky Pastor needs a new jet Stand back, stand by For that blessing to arrive We’ve all been waiting for a sign Pastor needs a new jet

Cat in a Bag 04:26
Cat in a Bag There’s a cat in the bag It can’t get out Maybe a shade less fun Than what they’re talking about Can’t even tell you myself It’s not like I have to I bet you know  That there’s something cooking  Something humming Something purring  Something swarming  Something warm and fuzzy Clawing and scratching Something jumping Ready to race out, wanting to climb  Perch itself up high, at the very top  And cry out There’s a cat in the bag

Because Your Love When I awake maybe a thousand miles Can stretch on out before me From where I am and where I want to be The way is waiting for me And baby, because your love is mine, life/the day is sweet and new Baby, because you love me so, I bring my best for you Yes I’m free, I believe with time and the sky that’s clear above me I’ll make it home to all the best in life And your light that shines around me Now baby, because your love is mine And as beautiful as you Baby, because you love me so I believe in angels, too By the evening I’ve seen a thousand ways You’ve shown me that you love me No need for feelin’ a need for giving more Cause you know, you’re truly something When I come home, yeah I see all the ways You tell me that you love me Yeah baby, because you’re love is mine And you know you help me, too Baby, because you love me so I do my best for you Baby, because you’re love is mine You're a miracle, it's true Baby, because you love me so I give it all for you

Not so Wild 03:58
Not so Wild I can see you there sighin’ you washed your hair in the misty rain I hear you singin’ out, laughin’ as we play Steppin’ out of your brand new shoes Winding ‘round past through the gate You got your notes in hand, a fine new bag A whole lot bigger than we planned It's not so wild a dream You're still the one that sets me flying
 Well if you’re not sure, I think we can be 
 No it's not so wild a dream I saw the mountains breaking blue 
White sailboat Picassos on the smooth glass crown, mirror gold lake 
A rebel playring of goslings whispering to me and you They turned into a family of swans on the shore It's not so wild a dream... Now you keep your eyes out watching
 We’ll catch the music in the breeze
 Bicycle wheels and summer shade, prime tide radio The watchmakers’ jewels -- who said they were ours 
 To hold and keep for a while It's not so wild a dream...

All Those Lighted Roads Sure can see a lot farther now Since the world's parted open  And hey, a lot more ways to go Turnin’ easier down all those lighted roads
 Level, neat, fine and trim Steady as she goes Yes all around the world, not quite so grim Sailin’ easier down all those lighted roads Long traveled ways and next generations Say goodbye to the ghosts we’ve left behind Whole new space for ol' creeping time Blazed in the forge, never even dreamed before Now you can stand in the rain Like it’s your home again Cry your spirit out, pour your spirit out Burning bridges, and mad laments have always been easier Sure can run a lot farther now That the world sits in your hands  And hey, a lot more ways to go Rollin’ easier down all those lighted roads Flyin’ easier down all those lighted roads
11.
Rise 05:06
Rise You can believe something happened that hasn't happened since A shooting star falling, a proud son walking straight into the mist You can believe something happened, that caused the waves to storm To bring to light the course of days, turn them around again While still there is much to doubt in the things we believe in Still there is much to question in the stories we’re told
 But I can see you Rise, turn around and comes the dawn again  We wake and we rise, see it all stand true again With your words that move my spirit And your touch that stirs my soul   Yeah we rise, see the daylight star again       Wake and we rise, see your light come shinin' through again 
 Let the night insist... Something’s bound to happen, like we know before’s occurred  Heroes lie fallen some come along, some struggle with what they’ve heard Yeah something’s sure to happen, if just a glimmer through all the rain As the morning sky breaks at the discovery of a friend 
 Yeah, I can see you Rise…
 We’ve learned all things must pass, that haven’t been proved Go on and let it fall, if it’s not true But I can see you Rise…
