Track Name: Book of Fate
Book of Fate

it never ceases to amaze me
just how sad this life can be
sometimes it even scares me
just how sad and beautiful life can be

it never ceases to amaze me
all the crazy things we do
terrifying news stories
sad and beautiful

a gypsy on the boardwalk
her cards the book of fate
passed down through a mystery
sad and beautiful

Track Name: You Are
You Are
words and music by Tamra Hayden

Look around you... you may not be what you meant to be
But you are, you are perfect
Look around you... you may not like just what you see,
But, accept it, it is perfect
And you are, you are, you are perfect
Go on, accept it, you are, you are perfect

You've been running 'round the treadmill, head hangin' down
Picking up crumbs when you could've had a meal
Slow it down and look around, though you're not where you thought you'd be
You're here with me and it is perfect
And you are, you are, you are perfect
Go on, accept it, you are, you are perfect

Day in, day out, chaos and take out,
The clock ticks faster while I seem to tick slower
It has an unfair advantage, but still somehow we manage to have it all
And it is perfect. Yeah!

Hey! Life is a puzzle missing pieces
So many now, I can't even find
I may not understand how it all fits together, but it does!
And it's perfect

And you are, you are, you are perfect
Go on, accept it, you are, you are perfect

You are, you are, you are more than enough,
More than your eyes can see! More, so much more!
You are perfect, yes you are what you are
Accept yourself....


(instrumental)


Look around you... you are more than you thought you'd ever be
And you are perfect
Look around you... Look around you
You are, you are, you are perfect
You are, you are, you are, you are, you are, you are, you are perfect
You are perfect, yes you are what you are
Accept yourself....
Track Name: Life At A Discount
Life At A Discount
words and music by Tamra Hayden

Strap me to the tread mill, flip the switch to high
Strap me to the tread mill - watch me fly

EvenTrail mix comes in tight packages,
News stories have theme songs
My life, once miraculous,
has taken a mundane turn
So, somebody flip the switch
Somebody flip the switch - turn me on
(My battery has run down)

Is this just a dream or is this the test drive
Or is this game over
I've got all my moving parts
still working and in place
but at a standstill, stalled out at a cross road

Have I lost my turn or am I the floor model waiting to be sold
Life at a discount
My life is at a discount
Used up and run down before my expiration date
Hurry up K Mart shoppers there's a blue light special -
we got a sale going, going, going gone
Life at a discount

instrumental

Strap me to the roof and haul my carcass home
Plug me into the socket and get my batteries going
I'm like a tinsel tree with psychidelic lights that change hues
A soprano that learns her lines and picks up her cues
Strap me to the railings and fly me to the rafters
I believe in big finishes and happy ever afters
(But is this all there is?)

I thought there would be one more Act for this side show freak
My personality may be electric but my outlook, bleak
Those who confine me nickel and dime me
Put me through my paces and send me off to the races
Life at a discount

So, strap me to the treadmill and set that sucker to high,
Strap me to the treadmill and watch me fly
So, strap me to the treadmill
Strap me to the treadmill
watch us try to keep up - me, myself and I
Track Name: God Is A Dream
GOD IS A DREAM

a tree of life it's traces
dawn brings another call to prayer
prophets through the ages
broken steps like scriptures lost in sand

our lonely planets history
betrays a painful mystery to me
a preacher on a distant radio
creeping through a crack in your mind again

what is it that you pray for
who is it that you work for
in your crazy world?


we dream God and God dreams us
like anyone who dreams of love
you will pray and prey and also be preyed upon
we will pray and prey and also be prayed upon


what is it that you fear most
has your love become a ghost
in this crazy world?


I think that God is a dream
but it would take me years to tell you what I mean
things are rarely ever as they seem
God is a dream


to hear the songs of angels
sung in wooden chapels long ago
a child of God in the mind of God
is the only God you may ever know

what is it you're searching for
what is it you kneeled before
with an open heart?

I think that God is a dream
but it would take a life to tell you what I mean
things are rarely ever as they seem God is a dream

Is God a dream?

Track Name: Eden Will Bloom
EDEN WILL BLOOM
words and music by Tamra Hayden


Here I am on the far side of Eden.

There you are on the dark side of the moon.

I reach for you but my arms won't go the distance.

I reach out, but I can't reach you. I can't reach you.

La da da......


'Cause there you are, a mirage in the desert.

Here am I, lost without a clue.

What to say, what to do...

I've lost the words I want to say to you.

Standing here with feet of stone,

I'm left to mourn you all alone. All alone.

La da da......


I reach for you but my arms won't go the distance.

I reach out, but I can't reach you. I can't reach you. No!

SOLO

There you are on the far side of Heaven.

Here I am in our dark and lonely room.

I want to bring you home, no more hesitation!

I want to bring you home, once again Eden will bloom.

Eden will bloom!

La da da......

I want to bring you home!!!

No more mass destruction!

I want to bring you home, once again Eden will bloom.

Eden will bloom!
