Track Name: This World
THIS WORLD OFFERS YOU - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
You might think that this world doesn’t offer you much
You might live in a narrow void, may lose touch

You may be on the edge it may be overhung
Yes you may be on the very edge, a nervous one
Or you may see, you may see what you want to be

This world offers you this world offers you so much

You may trip on what you like, go ahead
You may slip in spite of that I’ve said
You may see, you may see what you want to be

This world offers you this world offers you so much
Track Name: Southern Land
SOUTHERN LAND - Lyrics Pete Pascoe/Paul Dredge ©
Gum trees and possums in my memory
When I was a kid mind wandering free
Parents followed the trend, got a divorce
Before they went round the bend, pass the tomato sauce

Been living in this southern land busy trying to build this man
Trying hard to understand what drives us on

Numbed and painless in my childhood busy being careful and busy being good
Then I threw it away back when I turned 17
Things went astray, where they've always been

Long time dreaming in this southern land busy trying to build this man
Trying hard to understand what drives you on
And this happy bar’s reminding me
About travelling in this hippy van
Yeh, these happy hours finding me still dreaming in this southern land

Heard it called a convicts island,
Vast ancient land full of roos and red sand
Think what you’ve been back when you were 17
Living in a strange strange town
Think what you’ve been
Track Name: Second Story
SECOND STORY - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©

The piano leads me to the invisible stairs
Those gathered round show me to where
The second story lives softly awake
Answering every question, landing in another dimension
Uncluttered space where silence awaits

Takes me beyond where thoughts have gone
Love lies shrouded in ever lasting memory
A child awaits in peace, holds out a hand
Others there are waiting for me to understand
An ancient story to come clear, I feel a softly spoken sphere

Lead me on through the pastel painted picture, now it’s gone
There’s a view and the porthole shaped window shares it too.

The essence of this tale floats on a tune
Water softly cascading falls from the moon
And rises in the air lifts us to where
Lives another story, it lives here
World of love above, within so we can start again….

Lead me on through the pastel painted picture now it’s gone
There’s a view from the sacred second story
Track Name: Lonely Dragon
LONELY DRAGON - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
In this apartment for rock stars with energy and panache
Could be the department of last art the recipe some lemon - just a dash
Reshuffling the deck, the last hand I don’t know
A little sour, a little circumspect should’ve stuck with my piano

Ill face this lonely dragon so close I could almost floss its teeth
The wheels are still on the wagon passing by the world beneath

Shooting on the blind yet again, fool me
News of this kind is penned - so sue me
I left this city behind and I’m never coming back again
Took the first train out of town, no I’ll never feel this weight again

Gonna turn around out of this cul-de-sac
Of salt mines and humourless lands
Gonna learn how when I turn my back
On the very mouth that bit my hand
Track Name: Innocent
INNOCENT - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
Never slept at all last night
I was running with the animals across the stars
Lady says you should be in bed
Now what do you suppose she meant by that?
She seemed to me innocent, innocent as a new born.
Honest, loving I wish her peace

Never dreamt I’d be showing my heart
And I never thought I’d play my hand this way
Music is a river drifting by
Now when was the last time you watched that?
Innocent, innocent as a new born
Honest loving, I wish you peace.
Track Name: Cathedral
CATHEDRAL - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
I saw the pigeons flying as in my mind’s eye
When I was a child of 7 watching them fly by
The bluest sky you can imagine was shining all around
The warmest sun was warming my feet on the ground
My mind is my cathedral I’m standing there again
Once more a quiet moment in the middle of the day
I can go anywhere, anywhere in my past
I can think anything and anything will last
My mind is my escape I’m flying away again
To pictures created way away from today
And you think you know me I say you know what you see
I’m often tucked away inside but to can talk to me
Track Name: In My Own Time
IN MY OWN TIME - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
Frame me picture me paint me finish me
Trap me catch me post me deliver me
From your hands to another land from my mind

Trust me speak to me hear me love me
Rush me push me use me love me
In my own time in my own way in my own time

I’ll risk and I’ll burn and I’ll die and I’ll turn
I’ll seek and I’ll grow and I’ll live and I’ll learn

Like a river to the sea to the sky to the mountain
Track Name: Everyone Falls
EVERYONE FALLS - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
Everyone falls resets their sights heaven it calls to set things right
We envision messengers deemed to wash our senses
Like a tide toward the good, not tied to must and should

Everyone falls
While you pick yourself up don’t worry cos there’s help inside
Turn on the light, rub the bump on your head
Be thankful you’re still here and nurse your wounds

Everyone falls
Everyday’s a constant start again of different ways, how and when
And who, don’t worry
Like a tide toward the light not tied to must and right.

Everyone falls
Track Name: Photograph
PHOTOGRAPH - Lyrics P Pascoe©
I have a photograph time captured in technology
And since that photograph course of events have followed logically
A moment frozen from the past

Pin point an instant when you recall a real memory
Timeline is constant falling together forming destiny
All those little bits and pieces form

A jigsaw puzzle where you imagine it complete
A vivid picture there can be no retreat
Perhaps you’d never want it if you knew what lay in store
Pain and sorrow you know there must be more...

I have certain friends who’ve long lain silent
And in the end their thoughts still valid sent
Speaking in my memory

And it all ties together like a peaceful growing tree
In all kinds of weather going on into infinity
Seasons always changing....

A jigsaw puzzle where you imagine it complete
A vivid picture there can be no retreat
Perhaps you’d never want it if you knew what lay in store
Pain and sorrow you know there must be more...
Track Name: Low Tide
LOW TIDE - _ Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
Woke up somewhere things not feeling right
A left turn took me right on down to the other side
The cloud was hanging low tho the day was dawning bright
It was upon me before I could tell
Next time it happens ill be sure to let you know right away
Guess I never wanted to turn your colours grey
It was like a car crash or a crime from another day
Trouble brewing, that I could smell

This I can tell you I was seeing things from the other side
Best I could do was buckle up hang in there for the ride
I don’t really know, I think it came from deep inside
It was a lonely sad ol tide

Well a high tide’s followed by a low tide, any fool knows that
But when a leaning ladder is followed by the walk of a lone black cat
I’ll keep my eyes on the sun, on the blue of day as a matter of fact
I can tell you cos it’s true.

It was upon me before I could tell
Trouble burning, that I could smell
Now I need someone to hold
I turned this black rock into gold.
Track Name: St Kilda
ST KILDA - Lyrics Pete Pascoe©
The umbrella keeps me dry a few beers pass the time
The bar outside is quiet after all its 11pm on a rainy night

The lady with the shiny gear tries it out, the water she tests
My path is clear, I’m out of here, I’ll catch the tram on home

Got time to fill may as well kill it in a bar somewhere I’m outside here
You’re fast asleep in our cosy nest not so far away watching

A rainy sky covers a full moon over St Kilda
A weary sigh covers a four leaf clover: St Kilda
