Track Name: Travelin' On
Travelin; On
(written by Geof Land)

Never been to Machu Pichu
Never been to Katmandu
So if you're goin to the mountaintop
I wanna go there with you

Are you rolling Chichen Itza
Are you rolling to Ougadougou
Cause if you're rollin to Islamabad
I wanna roll there with you

Whoa, we're travelin on
We gotta sing that travelin song
I gotta feelin that it won't be long
'fore were travelin on

Are you bound for Barcelona
Are you bound for Timbuktu
Cause if you're bound for Zimbabwe baby
I'm bound to bind myself to you

Are you floatin' down that Ganges
Are you floatin down that Congo
Cause if you're floatin down that old man river
I wanna float on down with you
Repeat Chorus

And if you're doin' nothing
I want to do the same thing too
And if you're goin nowhere
I want to go there with you

If you want to cross the desert
If you want to cross the sea
And if you want to go up in the air
Then put your arms around me
Repeat Chorus
Track Name: That Tea
That Tea

Well gimme, some of that chamomile tea
Well gimme, some of that chamomile tea
I'm moving so fast like some kind of clown
My thoughts rushing round, and babe, I need to slow down
So gimme, some of that chamomile tea
Well gimme, some of that chamomile tea

Well gimme, some of that yerba buena tea
Well gimme, some of that yerba buena tea
My nose is so stuffed, my knees are so weak
This cold's got me down and I'm so dead on my feet
So gimme, some of that yerba buena tea
Well gimme, some of that yerba buena tea


Well gimme some of your honey in my tea
Well gimme some of your honey in my tea
Your love is so sweet, it's driving me wild
I cry out for more just like a small hungry child
Well gimme some of your honey in my tea
So gimme some of your hospitality

Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea
Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea
Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea
Oh me, oh my, oh me, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme that tea
Track Name: March of Progress
The March of Progress

Twas back in the 18th century when the country was still young
Whitney with his cotton gin never dreamed what he had done
An automated miracle to replace the work of man
You can't compete with a cold machine, that was how it all began
Then the factories they grew like trees in every citie's heart
An industry for you and me that would tear our world apart
Technology to set us free and always save the day
The march of progress still goes on, get the hell out of the way

The revolution swept the land and it changed the human race
The automated motor car carried us from place to place
Assembly lines in these changing times, and machines for this and that
And the money flowed everywhere you'd go as America grew fat
Then the factories they grew like trees in every citie's heart
An industry for you and me that would tear our world apart
Technology to set us free and always save the day
The march of progress still goes on, get the hell out of the way

In the name of world development we just keep pressin' on
A televised society that wonders what went wrong
Now we consume more than we produce as we drown our dream with booze
We're all hostages to our war machine that protects what we're scared to lose
Then the factories they die like trees in every citie's heart
An industry for you and me that would tear our world apart
Technology to set us free and always save the day
The march of progress still goes on, get the hell out of the way
Track Name: Love is back
Love is Back

Just when I thought that life would leave me lonely
Into my heart this feeling came so right
Brown eyes that shine
A tender touch so kind
I see that love is back
I see that love is back and growing
I see that love is back again tonight

Why is it what we have we just keep losing
Why does the world always seem to fuss and fight
Now that you're here
Running fingers through my hair
I see that love is back
I see that love is back and growing
I see that love is back again tonight

Breaking through all the ivory towers
Now is the time to let these hours flow
All that we need is right here for us
Living the moment now before it go-o-o-oes

It's funny how things we have, they just keep changing
Day into night and darkness back to light
Smooth feeling skin
Against mine once again
I see that love is back
I see that love is back and growing
I see that love is back again tonight
Track Name: The Classic
The Classic

She's tired of being traded for a newer model
For one who's shinier and firmer on the throttle
Something to be said about a fine old classic
She's utterly and totally real......She's utterly and totally real

You have to stand in line but when you finally see her
Reminds you of a time when you were so much freer
On her side the sign it reads "Just once in a lifetime"
She's something that is sweet and so real,Something that is sweet and so real

CHORUS Tailfins and chrome, a very soft recline
You can see the fine detail
Every curve is smooth and polished to it's finest
For sure her beauty's not,for sure her beauty's not for sale

No longer sits outside and gets left unattended
Never to be left alone or be neglected
No longer taken out upon the open highway
Tired of the toll that she's paid..So tired of the toll that she's paid

Lessons in our life, not always of our choosing
Some are gifts, while others,painful and confusing
Guarding all her travels and her destinations
Power in the way that she's made.Such power in the way that she's made
REPEAT CHORUS

Next time that you think it's time to make a trade in
Think of the old classic that is on display and
Maybe what you're searchin' for is here before you
Some treasures cannot be replaced..Some treasures cannot be replaced
REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Across the Rolling Sky
Across the Rollin’ Sky

When you were just........ a little child..... upon your daddy’s knee
You filled our house......with love and smiles.....and curiousity
With each new day.....you found a way.....to change and learn and grow
Into the one..... that you’ve become.....on journeys that you go
You wonder where the time it goes...the blinking of an eye
You’re on your own...... you’re leaving home.....across the rolling sky

Now it reminds.....me of the time.....of when I did the same
My father sighed.....my mother cried....’twas time that was to blame
You can’t forget.....it never lets..........you hold to things for keeps
But when you ache......to make a break......it’s with your faith you leap
You wonder where the time it goes...from egg to butterfly
You’re on your own...... you’re leaving home.....across the rolling sky

The plane it lifts.....you wonder if.....the clouds will make you cry
And through the tears.....and through the years......you bid the past goodbye
As lives will move.....in different ways.....the thoughts play in your mind
You choose instead.....to look ahead.....and cross the rolling sky
You wonder where the time it goes...and places you or I
You’re on your own...... you’re leaving home.....across the rolling sky
Track Name: Somethin' That's About You
Somethin’ That’s About You

First time I saw you standing... tall in the door
I knew I’d have to try to get to know you more
Get to know you more
I wonder what’s in store
Because there’s something that’s about you
Makes me feel a way I’ve never felt before

My eyes stay on you as you walk ‘cross the floor
Such strong anticipation cuts me to the core
Cuts me to the core
I don’t know what for
Because there’s something that’s about you
Makes me feel a way I’ve never felt before

My heart is beating, my blood is heating, I hear my breathing
As you are getting near
A voice so soothing, a presence moving
We start to talk and then we go from there
Who knows where?

Her hair’s the color of a tropic ocean shore
The strongness of this feeling that we should explore
That we should explore
I want to find out more
Because there’s something that’s about you
Makes me feel a way I’ve never felt before
Track Name: Keepin' Some Hope
Keepin’ Some Hope

When chaos of war surrounds you
You wonder how you’ll survive
The light of the dawn astounds you
When any new day arrives
Just keepin’ some hope............ Just keepin’ some hope
Just keepin’ some hope alive
Just keepin’ some hope.............Just keepin’ some hope
Just keepin’ some hope alive

So why did they send you out here
Where blood’s flowing just like wine
The reasons were not made veryc lear
For putting our lives on the line
Just keepin’ some hope............ Just keepin’ some hope
Just keepin’ some hope alive
Just keepin’ some hope.............Just keepin’ some hope
Just keepin’ some hope alive

Right from the first, got caught in the worst of it........playing the game to stay alive
Realities show... mortalitie’s grow, ......while sanity’s trying to survive

You do what you do to make it through
And wonder what’s truth and lies
Your enemies sight has shakin’ you
When you see yourself in his eyes
Just keepin’ some hope............ Just keepin’ some hope
Just keepin’ some hope alive
Just keepin’ some hope.............Just keepin’ some hope
Just keepin’ some hope alive
Track Name: So Much to Me
So Much to Me
(for Sheila)

You mean so much to me...... like sun to the light
You mean so much to me..... like stars to the night
Growing with love’s a pleasure
I’ve found a lasting treasure now
I don’t know how
You mean so much to me, right now

You mean so much to me..... like water to Spring
You mean so much to me........ my everything
Feels like you’re always near me
A guiding light to steer me through
Right back to you
You mean so much to me, it’s true


You mean so much to me.....like words to a rhyme
You mean so much to me..... like numbers to time
Counting each passing minute
Knowing that love is in it, true
From me to you
You mean so much to me, you do
