Infinity 06:04
Infinity written by John Beccia Infinity is..........all around you You’ve got to stretch out..........see what you can do The patterns breakdown..........and we just pass through The circles spin round.........and reveal nothing new All beliefs are falling Outer voices calling Death is just a door in front of you Infinity is..........in front of your face And we surround it..........with our inner space Our sanity is..........held in it’s place By inner voices..........we just can’t erase Eyes no longer blinking Into dream we’re sinking Death is just another day we face REFRAIN You need someone to love you, you need someone to hold so tight You need someone to love you at the edge of the sky tonight Reach on down below you What can the future show you, tonight Infinity is.......... a river that flows Imagination...........and all that it shows Our destination..........is out of control A figmentation..........of what we think we know Heart let go of mind Different worlds you find Death is just another way to grow REPEAT REFRAIN

Hot Times The temperature is rising in the atmosphere Tho everybody knows, does anybody care? We're in for hot times on the planet tonight The ozone layer steadily is breaking down There's not much time for a solution to be found We're in for hot times on the planet tonight CHORUS We're in for hot times on the planet Hot times on the planet Hot times on the planet tonight Filling up the oxygen with CO2, With CFC's, and with exhaust emissions too We're in for hot times on the planet tonight But still we drive our cars and burn our fossil fuel As chances of survival grow more miniscule We're in for hot times on the planet tonight REPEAT CHORUS Will we face the harsh reality? Will we act or let the future be? Global warth is climbing by degrees. Climatic changes happen gradually, Leading to the dying of the trees. Food producing lands, they will decrease, Polar ice caps melt into the seas. Only time will show us Only time will show us. Only time will show us what will be Producing and consuming so much energy We're digging up the earth and cuttin' down the trees We're in for hot times on the planet tonight Will we go the same way as the dinosaur Blinded by our greediness of wanting more We're in for hot times on the planet tonight REPEAT CHORUS

Beyond the Bird written by John Beccia Babe, don't you know Survival's what the world is livin' for Somehow it seems there should be so much more Spread your wings and start to fly Pass on thru the lonely sky Flyin' on and on........beyond the bird Babe, don't you know Every brand new day should be a thrill Things have changed, and change they always will Everything must live and die Everyone must laugh and cry Flyin' on and on........beyond the bird instrumental break Babe, don't you know If you ever really knew me well Everything outside is just a shell You can see right thru these eyes Rivers run and then go dry Flyin' on and on........beyond the bird Babe, don't you know Time moves on and on, no matter what Don't get caught in someone elses rut It should come as no suprise The truth today's tomorrows' lies Flyin' on and on........beyond the bird Beyond the bird.........beyond the bird

BALLAD FOR THE BAR written by John Beccia Chorus-Pour another whiskey and another glass of wine Lately I'm so damned depressed, I need to drink her off my mind Never is a reason and there never is a rhyme Pour another whiskey and another glass of wine First time that I loved a girl I had so much to learn Flipped my head above my heels until love made a turn When she left me high and dry I didn't quite know what to do So pour another whiskey 'cause this glass is almost thru Repeat chorus Second woman that I loved, I loved more than myself Found that wasn't quite enough and that she needed something else Finally had to leave her when she stepped out all night long So pour another whiskey 'cause this glass is almost gone Repeat chorus Instrumental break - Now I know there's other girls and some will treat me right I will love and honor them and stay with them all night But everyone know how love ends, and how we walk the line So pour another whiskey and another glass of wine Repeat chorus twice Pour another whiskey and another glass of wine Pour another whiskey and another glass of wi-i-ine

Diablo Down written by John Beccia Thousands of people marchin'... marchin' along the beach We've got to raise our voices for the things that we believe We can't accept the risk of nuclear madness here in our town Marchin' into the canyon.....got to tear Diablo down Marchin' into the canyon..... got to tear Diablo down Shoutin' the words of protest.....Singin' the songs of love Hopin' to change this to somethin' that we're dreamin' of We can't accept the danger of nuclear waste forever around Marchin' into the canyon.....got to tear Diablo down Marchin' into the canyon..... got to tear Diablo down The greediness of the corporation Killin' our earth and sellin' our souls Two hundred-fifty-thousand years of radiation Will take it's toll-oh-oh Take it upon your shoulders.....Take it into your hands We've got to take responsibility while we can We can't accept the fate of radioactive poison around Marchin' into the canyon.....got to tear Diablo down Marchin' into the canyon..... got to tear Diablo down

Hear No Lies 03:54
Hear No Lies written by John Beccia Sister, sister is that you? Tell me what you're goin' thru Love has left you once again Now you've come back, long lost friend CHORUS Why do we try hangin' on Face to face now, gone is gone But you'll ask no questions, hear no lies See no evil, close your eyes Brother, brother where you been? Such a sad state our world is in Sick and ravaged, close to death Gasping for a final breath Repeat Chorus Lover, lover, it's so new Layin' here so close to you Will tomorrow ever come? Love me now while love's still young Repeat Chorus twice

Never So Nice written by John Beccia Wild is the rover Who rolls in the clover with love But he cannot hold oh so closely what he's thinking of Memory's nice But never so nice as the real thing They make you think twice They're never so nice as real thing For years he'll be thinking Sitting and sinking in dream And he can remember so many things he's never seen Memory's nice But never so nice as the real thing So take my advice They're never so nice as the real thing Wild is the rover Who's traveled all over the land Only to find that in time castles crumble to sand Memory's nice But never so nice as the real thing They're frozen like ice But never so nice as the real thing They make you think twice But never so nice as the real thing Memory's nice But never so nice as the real thing

Take Me Away 04:29
Take Me Away written by John Beccia See it shinin' in the light of your eyes Feel your heartbeat with your chest against mine Now you're flowin' like a river through me Time is showin' what comes eventually REFRAIN - Love has returned once more to me Opened a brand new door to me Take me away We'll be reaching for the sky and the stars New worlds open as the time becomes ours Ours for touching just momentarily Seize the moment that's shared by you and me Repeat refrain The more that I find out what's deep in your soul The more that I learn, the more that I want to know Thoughts coming constantly all about you and me Take me away Now you're near me laying here by my side Secret sharing, you and me we confide Walls are crumbling, and you're comin' on through Someone special who makes me feel special too Repeat refrain

Between the Eyes (free) 02:16
Between the Eyes written by John Beccia They're dying in the east, they're dying in the west We sell our bombs to either side and disregard what's best Can't you see what's happenin' to us Our government's a threat to all our lives If they think they'd make a profit Then they'd shoot you right between the eyes This craziness is reigning, it's ruling every land Our lives are disregarded by their power's greedy hand Can't you see what's happenin' to us Our government is feeding us their lies If they think they'd make a profit Then they'd shoot you right between the eyes INSTRUMENTAL BREAK Afghanistan, El Salvador were only power's pawns Anesthetized by T.V.'s lies, we don't know right from wrong Can't you see what's happenin' to us Our government is dressed in death's disguise If they think they'd make a profit Then they'd shoot you right between the eyes Now man is killing man, and man is killing beast And man is killing future time, somehow it's got to cease Can't you see what's happenin' to us Our government just gives it's stock replies If they think they'd make a profit Then they'd shoot you right between the eyes Right between the eyes Right between the eyes Between the Eyes
