    Take You Down

    She’s gonna take you down
    She wants to make you her lover tonight
    She’ll sing a blue-eyed song so softly

    And you’re thinking everything is alright
    Wondering why you put up a fight
    But all she wants to do is

    Take you down
    Take you down
    “It’s really hurting no one”

    She knows her way around
    Plant a thought push a button right here
    And you become ready willing and able

    And you’re thinking everything is alright
    Wondering why you put up a fight
    But all she wants to do is

    Take you down (I’m feeling older)
    Take you down (but I’m getting better
    Take you down (at knowing who I am)

    You’re living a life of no regret
    Just doing the act without a net
    Someday when the deal goes down
    You’ll wish that you had seen

    Just what was happening
    While the wild ones were stealing your soul
    And yet you still believed that you still had it under control

    And everything’s not alright
    Wondering how you got in this fight
    When all she wants to do is

    Take you down (I am forgiven)
    Take you down (if I’m not mistaken)
    Take you down (you will not let me go)

    Take you down (I’m feeling older)
    Take you down (but I’m getting better)
    Take you down (you will not bury me)

    Other Plans

    I want to live by the lake
    I want to drift upon the sea
    I want to sail into the sunset of my dreams
    But there are other plans for me

    I want my space left alone
    I’d like to work out a deal
    I want to crawl inside the way things used to be
    But there are other plans for me
    There are other plans for me

    I want to keep to myself
    I cannot set the people free
    I want convenience and a life that’s hassle free
    But there are other plans for me
    God’s got some other plan for me

  • 02:37 Story Lyrics
    Listen To Your Fears

    The silly things we tell ourselves
    Just gentle poison pushin’ through
    Only time is gonna tell if they’re from heaven or from hell
    And if they’re telling you the truth

    Why do you listen to your fears
    Those evil friends you know so well
    They’re hanging ‘round and tying you down you can’t be found
    You’re hiding from yourself

    In your head you’ll find a story left untold
    Identified with a gallery of things to come
    There’s been a changing of the guard
    And a healing sound inside my soul
    And all this time I thought the sun won’t shine on me
    and having hope was just like singing harmony alone

    Don’t say a word just close your eyes
    Decide which way your mind will go
    Is it some exotic dream or is it just a silent scream
    And will you ever really know

    Now don’t you listen to your fears
    Those evil friends you know so well
    They’re hanging ‘round and tying you down you can’t be found
    You’re hiding from yourself

    Below The Surface

    Is your vertical love in line
    Or is your mindset horizontal
    Do you have to tilt your head to understand?
    Set your charm on radiate and
    Pile your goodies on my plate
    But I don’t want to look below the surface
    I can’t bear to look below the surface

    Sending signals out to space
    It’s a shame no one receives them
    While those shallow minded thoughts surround your head
    Take a stab at what is real
    And maybe then you’ll start to feel
    A kind of pulmonary twitch inside you
    An illusion standing right beside you

    Get the truth and never sell it
    Love the truth and always tell it
    It’s gaining on you now

    When you’re ready to arrive
    I’ll be glad to come and get you
    Just be sure that you’re not wasting all my time
    If what’s missing is the point
    Then you’re just stinking up the joint
    And I don’t want to look below the surface
    I’m not killing time below the surface
    I can’t bear to look below the surface

    Below the surface
