Track Name: The Great Gulf
keep the earth you shining sun
and all that lives in it
across the sky the ball of fire
barreling to the sea

by the light that's growing dim
i see the day going down
the heady eve is coming in
to wash away our daytime lives

yet the night is young
when you let that setting sun
sink into the sea

cold comes the evening air
as you seem to disappear
dark into that night
Track Name: At the Fading of Late Autumn
alight gently off and fall
from high lower to the ground

in my memory i can see you growing older
at the fading of late autumn
Track Name: Wayward Notion
last night i finally saw his face emerge
out of the darkness into the sight of the moonlight

he was smiling at me chanting and laughing
with coals in his eyes

dancing in the open waltzing and spinning
with a girl in his arms soundly sleeping
to the words he sang her of some kind of spell
Track Name: Transmitter
("i'll lead you all in the dance" said he,
"i am the lord of the dance" said he)

belated kids could sound so smooth
dying in a waiting room

looking at the mirror with
the power of a steam liner

father harvest in the grain
female comes outside the door to kill kill kill
Track Name: Our Young Hearts Go Wild
today we ought to settle down
built a house raise a farm
we'll work all through the day
laugh the time away
our young hearts go wild

tonight i'd like to take a stroll
all the way across town
we'll head on to the park
walking through the dark
our soft eyes grow wide
for what's in the sky
chasing fireflies
our young hearts go wild
