Track Name: Break Up Breakdown
Break Up Breakdown

Batson May 2010



I have to have a reason

Please give me the reason

I can’t see the reason

Nor hear the rhyme

All this time / blind minded trying / trying trying minds

Remember when we talked so free

Time blew by like a breeze

When do you mean what you say?

Do you say what you mean?

I am you are / break up breakdown / we are we were

The lucky ones... we are the lucky ones...

We were the lucky ones...


I do love to get you off

Yeah let me get you off

I want to get you off

Off of my mind

So unkind / a fine timed line / timing / lying times

Remember when we talked so free

Not so much recently

When do you mean what you say?

Do you say what you mean?

I am you are / break up breakdown / we are we were

The lucky ones... we are the lucky ones...

We were the lucky ones...


I’m going to get you back

I’d like to get you back

I won’t take you back

And you’re not mine

Too confined / long driving kind / driving / driving kind

Remember when we talked so free

You were you I was me

When do you mean what you say?

Do you say what you mean?

I am you are / break up breakdown / we are we were

The lucky ones… the lucky ones… the lucky ones,,,

We are the lucky ones… we were the lucky ones
Track Name: Left at the Light
Left at the Light

Batson October 2008


I guess by now you were hoping

We could point to where we’re going

I trust for sure it’s disappointing

Sorry how I’ve ‘come disjointed

You halfway smile ‘Our world is round’

How would I know?

How would I know the shape it’s in?

How would I know how would I?

YOU SAID I SAID I SAID YOU SAID

I SAID YOU SAID YOU SAID I SAID

Left at the light... Turned all around...

Three lefts make a right...

Round, round and around… Round, all turned around


Back to where we got going

Drive the night just to hold you

Making time lines unfolding

Sorry how I ‘came disjointed

Another day the world’s stopped turning

How would I know?

How would I know my head is spinning?

How would I know how would I?

YOU SAID I SAID I SAID YOU SAID

I SAID YOU SAID YOU SAID I SAID

Left at the light... Turned all around...

Three lefts make a right...

Round, round and around… Round, all turned around


< Instrumental >

How would I know?

How would I know the shape it’s in?

How would I know how would I?

YOU SAID I SAID I SAID YOU SAID

I SAID YOU SAID YOU SAID I SAID

Left at the light... Turned all around...

Three lefts make a right...

Round, round and around… Round, our world is round
Track Name: Minutes in Tears
Minutes in Tears

Batson April 2009


Remember the first time … very first time …

Remember the first time I heard you play

‘11:59’ came alive

Twelve ‘o’ two I wonder about you

Three minutes in tears old waves we knew

We knew … 3 minutes in tears … 3 minutes …



Hear the stars’ echo … echo echo echo …

Can you feel the night’s stumbling ghost

Hear the stars’ echo oh so soulful

Guess your world is tumbling slowly

As I sing you over and over to me

Over & over … over to me … to me …

<<In tears>>


Neither rockets nor oceans... no rockets...

Now it’s already one thirteen

Neither rockets nor oceans bring me peace

When it strikes five I toss ‘til nine

These minutes in tears new waves in mind

In mind … 3 minutes in tears … 3 minutes …



Hear the stars’ echo … echo echo echo …

Can you feel the night’s stumbling ghost

Hear the stars’ echo oh so soulful

Guess your world is tumbling slowly

As I sing you over and over to me

Over & over … over to me … to me …

<< In tears>>
Track Name: Room on the Moon
Room on the Moon

Batson September 2007



Room on the Moon...

You say you pray for better days

Room on the Moon …

Cool cozy post-Earth getaway

Can you believe it’s so senseless

Can you believe it’s so senseless

Can you believe how we ruined things?

One day they’ll call us The Senseless Human Beings

Is what we do now what we do, what we do now is

Is what we do now what we do, what we do now is



Room on the Moon …

Radio-quiet airing free a breath to breathe

Room on the Moon …

Liquid mirrors spill the Sea Tranquility

Can you believe it’s so senseless

Can you believe it’s so senseless

Can you believe how we ruined things?

One day they’ll call us The Senseless Human Beings

Is what we do now what we do, what we do now is

Is what we do now what we do, what we do now is

Track Name: Spent
Spent

Batson September 20008


Quiet aisles last minute things

Lost in thoughts of the coming

Not time well spent not time well spent

Or is it now or is it all it is it seems?


You’ll be here within an hour

Closely watched the simmering

Not time well spent not time well spent

Or is it now or is it all it is it seems?


<< Instrumental >>


Lively taste big table talk

So sure how we’ll change the world

Not time well spent... no difference

Or is it now or is it all it is it seems?


Breathe before you leave again

I watch the news begin to drift

Not time well spent... no difference

Or is it now or is it all it is a dream?


<< Instrumental >>


All I’ve known a peopled field

Someone’s crying ‘We’re all here'

Crying ‘We’re’ all here’ / crying ‘We’re all here’

Or is it now we’re all crying / crying ‘We’re all here'
