Track Name: Siren Song
Tie me up, tie me up tightly
but don't, don't, don't stop my ears
dreams of you thrill me nightly
whadda ya say we make them real?
I can't stop you
if you want to
come to me
oh come to me

Oh siren, sing your song
sing it loud, sing it all night long
Oh siren, sing your song
I'm strong enough, I'm strong enough

Tie me up, tie me up tightly
and we'll see if I survive
oh your touch strikes like lightning
and I've never been so alive
I'm powerless
to resist
oh sing for me
oh ecstasy

Oh siren, sing your song
sing it loud, sing it all night long
Oh siren, sing your song
I'm strong enough, I'm strong enough
Track Name: Cartographer
I could be your cartographer
I could sail into your endless seas
I could go through uncharted waters
You could be my greatest discovery

I could be your cartographer
I could climb anything in my way
I will find your furthest reaches
and make them mine by the light of the day

I have been known and I know
that you're a new world

I will be your cartographer
through the nights the stars be my guide
and lead me home with tales of wonder
I'll whisper when we're laying side by side

I will be your cartographer
through the unknown unseen unheard
as we go along together
unfolding to the last spoken word

I have been known and I know
that you're a new world
Track Name: Glittering Lights
A thousand glittering lights
pointing in every direction
beaming through the night
if I could find just one that rang out true
I'd set sail right into that star

and I'd go further and further
and further and further
and further and further
and further up

A billion beckoning hearts
give me the one discontented in the dark
no, we'll not be anchored forever
no, we'll transcend all we are

and we'll go further and further
and further and further
and further and further
and further up
Track Name: I Know You Feel
I know you feel trapped
in the mouse wheel
in the ant hill
the menial
I know that you're tired
of the red tape
of the suitcase
that we can never seems to get unpacked

but keep one thing in mind
you and I are going to die
and that stuff won't have mattered at all

so dance every chance you get
and see the sun before it sets
and when it does
look up at the stars
count them if you can
there may not be a second chance

I know that you're down
on the world
and on love
and God and everything in between
but you're beautiful
and life's meaningful
if you'll just decide what it means

but keep one thing in mind
you and I are going to die
and that stuff won't have mattered at all

so dance every chance you get
and see the sun before it sets
and when it does
look up at the stars
count them if you can
there may not be a second chance
so dance
so dance

oh we rise, and oh we set
oh we rise, and oh we set
Track Name: Stay Tonight
Draw my fingers on your spine
press my lips against your moonlit side
just say that I can stay tonight

Hold you here
dizzy on form and line
soft lights
skin diffused
speak peace over night

Drag your nails across my skull
bodies tremble in the ebb and flow
light plays through the window shade
where long lines lay

Hold me here
Dizzy on form and line
soft lights
skin diffused
speak peace over night

just say that I can stay tonight
Track Name: Everything Is Beautiful
Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts

What is it to be alive?
What is it to pass in the night?
A stranger, stranger story than I could have ever told
What is it to believe?
What is it to cease to be?
Therein lies the mystery of it all

Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts
