Track Name: Goodbye Settlers
we have a board
we have friends
we number 2 to 4
we are age 10 or more
get set clear the floor

we’ll play the game
place our peices where the resources are made
and if we don’t we’ll have to trade
and when we’ve won we’ll rearrange

we’ll rearragned where the hexigons are laid
and then we’ll start again but before we do we’ll say


we make a home out of a house
we make a child with a spouse
we return we move away
we loose a job we get a raise
we rearrange despite the best plans we’ve laid


we have a board we have friennds
we number 2 to 4
get set clear the floor
Track Name: Simple Things
geting coffee in the morning with you
probably the best part of my day
share a buffelo wing pizza baby
wouldn’t want it any other way

simple things
they mean everything to me now

you flash a smile at the hospital
i see you walking down the hall
i feel a really big thing for you
in the ordinary and the small

simple things
you mean everything to me now

winter’s coming darling
we’ll be hugging all the time

and here’s the thing
you mean everything to me now

“andrea will you be my girlfriend?”
Track Name: Go Coco
coco is a girl just a tiny lass
curls the color of a lobster back
she don't stop when she's made up her mind so don't even ask
just say go coco go coco go coco

she's like the fly walking up the wall
composite eye seeing all
we won't know that she's made up her mind till she tells us so
but then it's go coco go coco go coco

in a hurry since the day she was born
racing mom to the hospital ward
racing mom to the hospital ward
coco put the pedal down to the floor

her parentals are her constant support
coco puts the pedal down to the floor
i said it once, i said it once and i'll say it once more
i'll say go coco go coco go coco

i'll say go coco go coco go coco
Track Name: I'll Make A Mess With You
kitchen unkept
our floors are unswept
we have a lot to do

dishes undone
washer unrun
i'll make a mess with you

some people seem
to think love is squeaky clean
that isn't even remotely true

lets get undressed
call this a beautiful mess
i'll make a mess with you
Track Name: Blessed Are The Builders
oh i know that you were made
because you have a belly button
and if it's true your made
well then you must be made for something

for the games that you play
for your paints and the brushes
for the music that you make
and everyone it touches

but your bodies weren't made to last forever
your hearts are not perpetual machines
but you choose to love each day
because it's how we're made
and love is what survives us when we leave


and first the match was made
and then the band of silver
and now the vows exchanged
oh blessed are the builders

for their bodies weren't made to last forever
and their hearts are not perpetual machines
but they choose to love each day because that's how they're made
and love is what survives us when we leave

oh let's choose to love each day
because that's how we're made
and love is what survives us when we leave
Track Name: Song For The Cuyahoga River As Sung By The Columbus Road Lift Bridge In The Flats
i contain you
as you once contained
this nation of makers
by whom i was made
and you always new
reflect i changed
i contian you and you remain

i contain you
i’ve measured your span
with wires with tires
over water and fire
and you always new
reflect how i’ve aged
i contain you and you remain

but it’s come to this
it is what it is

i contain you
but won’t explain
to these kids
they don’t know where we’ve been
did you know ants build bridges from the bodies of friends
i contain you and i will till the end
i contain you you are my friend
Track Name: Jonah And The Deep Blue Sea
tell me baby what do you dream when you're asleep and you're smiling at me now that's a lovely little mystery between jonah and the deep blue sea

tell me baby how will you grow who will you love where will you go now that's a lovely little mystery to know jonah and the deep blue sea

forgive me if i pry into what goes on behind those baby eyes

tell me baby what do you mean when you babble bo bo bo dee dee dee such a lovely little mystery to me jonah and the deep blue sea
Track Name: You And You And All Of Us
all the fish in the stream
all the seeds in the meadow
they'd be nameless without these
patient academics
and the ecology of which we are fragments
you and you and all of us

all the families you see
all the friends you have gathered
we would never know each other
without you two lovers
as you join at the point you join us together
you and you and all of us

none of us is a island
no we all need connections to survive
karen and hernan thank you for connecting us tonight

all the trouble you meet
all the laughter and crying
all the adversity
all the struggle and triumph
whatever will be from this moment of courage
we're with you all of us

none of us is an island
no we all need connections to survive
karen and hernan we stand with you
we are standing by

all the fish in the stream
all the seeds in the meadow
all the families you meet
all the friends that you gather
all the adversity
all the crying and laughter
we're with you all of us
it's you and you and all of us
Track Name: Body Mine
we were climbing in trees with our tiny skinned knees
we were riding bicycles all day
we were learning how to play
we were turning cartwheels we were learning how getting hurt feels
and our hips they loved to sway
when we heard the music play

we were growing older with the world at our shoulder
we lost track of all the ways we changed
my dear we’re still the same

and we fall down and we get right back up
and then we fall again
it's time to wise up
because the needle stuck
and there's a pattern here
oh hello my dear
this is your oldest friend
it's time to learn again
it's time to lose again
it's time to hurt again
it's time to live
body mine
body mine
Track Name: The Future
this year we'll cook for each other
and lower the lights of our glowing computers
and write our lives like a story
and string our hearts for a beautiful melody
and next year we'll be slightly more resolute
and the words that we sing will ring slightly more true
our earth it turns in a circle
and our bodies they drink in the cloudy water
the clouds precess in their orbit
and the dress you'll wear
for now it's a secret
Track Name: Brand New Page
hello my dog eared friend
hello my journal hello my pen
hello my brand new page
my fresh coat of snow on new years day
let your moonlight all pour down
and pool upon the ground
let the clouds all blow away
and let everyday be a new year's day

hello my brand new page
my fresh coat of snow on new years day
i put the milk out for the cat
it spilled on the piano's sharps and flats
i walk backwards through the snow
and i watch for the holes where my foot prints go
i saw the moonlight all pour down
and pool upon the ground
i saw the clouds all blow away

i saw everyday everyday is a new year's day

hello my dog eared friend
hello the beginning hello the end
hello my brand new page
you hold the words i'm about to say
so let your moonlight all pour down and pool upon the ground
let the clouds all blow away
and see every day is a new year's day

and everyday is a page
and everyday is a page
and everyday is a page
and every page is a new year's day
