Track Name: The Bow Wave
If you think that you already know
Everything about the tide
Just swimming in the ports of call
And taking the freest ride

You’d launch another heart attack
Just to see the fire and feed the flames
You’re not getting your time back
Hanging from a wire, walking through the rain

BOW WAVES
CUT THROUGH THE SOUND
ALL MY LIFE I FELT THE PULL AND IT TOOK ME DOWN
SOME WOUNDS
THEY NEVER HEAL
THREE SHEETS TO THE WIND AND STILL THEY PUT YOU BEHIND THE WHEEL

If you feel like a waste of space
You remember what used to be
Just a memory you couldn’t face
But you flash the signal across the sea

You don’t need another open door
For the flood to flow into your life
You can fall straight to the floor
Just to let it go if it feels right
Track Name: The Breakers
Unhinge your jaw and kiss me soft
I know you think you’re better off
Get ready ‘cause I am here
And no one else is at the top
What were we thinking? We’re in the death zone
Should have stayed aboard alone
It suddenly became so clear
And now the ocean is my home

I’M THROWING CAUTION TO THE WIND
LET’S SEE IF ANY WAVE’S WORTH RIDING
I’M SETTING FIRE TO THE SEA
LET’S SEE WHAT YOU’RE REALLY HIDING
YOU’VE NEVER TALKED THIS WAY BEFORE
I GUESS WE’LL HAVE TO MEET YOUR MAKER
WE’LL NEVER MAKE IT TO THE SHORE
I GUESS WE’RE GONNA HIT THE BREAKERS

Untie your shoes and take them off
Wade into something blue, it’s getting hot
Get ready, ‘cause I am here
And will you please forget me not
What was I thinking? We’re in the riptide
Should have stayed at home this time
It suddenly became so clear
And now the water feels just fine
Track Name: The Undertow
One day it’s easy to get behind
That’s one way to see it - but never mind
Did you feel it? I’ve got no bearings and no tongue
Did you feel it? We kissed the ocean floor as one

I CAN TELL YOU FEEL THE SAME
I CAN FEEL THE UNDERTOW
DID YOU THINK THIS WAS A GAME
IF IT IS I’D LIKE TO KNOW

YOU CAN SELL ME ANYTHING
WHEN YOU WHISPER IN MY EAR
WHO KNOWS WHAT THE NIGHT WILL BRING
AS WE GENTLY DISAPPEAR
Track Name: Cape Disappointment

Track Name: Shock Wave
Get in - the water’s warm
And I know you’re still strong
Swim down and find your reason
Find out where you belong
I know the river’s flooding
I’m up on current events
It’s been a while since I was able
To make these words and still make some sense

I THINK YOU WOULD REMEMBER
THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION
ROCKED BY THE SHOCK WAVE
AND OPEN TO SUGGESTION
THE BEAUTIFUL PRETENDER
THE LETTER ON THE TABLE
ROCKED BY THE SHOCK WAVE
BUT WILLING AND ABLE

Be true - and I’ll be patient
And I know you’re still you
What side would you prefer
‘Cause we have a lot to do
I know the clock is ticking
This is the life and times
It’s been a while since I was able
To make ends meet - or draw the line
Track Name: Rogue Wave
Swim into the fountain of youth and drift along forever
But the rogue wave hits and we’re on the rocks together

TAKE ME OR LEAVE ME, I’M NOT READY TO DIE
TAKE TWO WILL BREAK YOU WHEN THE WATER’S TOO HIGH
Track Name: Thrillwave
We are breaking through the brick
All atop the endless river
We are cutting to the quick
All about to be delivered

Are we almost to the shore
Is there someone there to meet us
Are we sinking into nothing
Will the rising tide defeat us

CAUGHT IN YOUR BOW WAVE
DROWNING IN THE THRILLWAVE
