(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) Somebody tell me A story of how it feels To find inspiration of a lifetime Remind me what is real Words long unspoken Cast in new light Staged inside my brain Trust my heart to get it right A backdrop of beauty A stage of sky and stone Hammer home the love Keep me grounded to the bone Paint a picture of truth Within the nonsense of the scene Crazy actions cue Mindful reactions in me I've been watching a play for years Walked a million miles of intention Round a little town of fear Now the new direction is clear In this live production Be myself or nothing Make the roles all disappear Somebody show me What I already know Could be an extra in a silent movie Or write and direct the show About a hard working man Finding love in the world Improvising lines on how The boy gets the girl Drama, comedy, music, movement With the pain I’ve been watching a play for years Content to play the victim The misunderstood hero Now the new direction is clear In this live production Be myself or nothing Make the roles all disappear Now the lights shine and Dance on the stage Supporting cast of teachers Every stripe every age A breakout role as I find love within me Now I knew that old play for years Spoke a million lines of intention On a stage set in the mirror Now the new direction is clear In this live production Be myself or nothing Make the roles all disappear Life in production No script only change Find ourselves in roles We don't expect to play And pray we have the range And when the credits roll To be understood and recognized With love from the critic Behind our own eyes Perry Nunn: Vocal, Guitars Peter Engisch: Piano Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass Matt Reinhardt: Backing Vocal Linda Pervier: Backing Vocal

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) With the courage to create A whole and imperfect life Follow me down Thru crashing waves and shadow night I may never reach the moon But I can still hold it in my hand The silver softness whispers I understand In the misty darkness With the critic and the crazy dreaming man I remember to stop and I begin again Calling out to all loyal soldiers At war for my security Follow me down Throw your arms into the sea From the rocky shores Of longing and uncertainty Follow me down The battle for the sun Is overcome and never won Morning signs of victory In the evening new lines are drawn Swords and broken shields Drift like flotsam with the breeze Riding tides of rhythm and harmony In the dusky darkness Soldiers cry out take my hand I stop and I begin again Calling out to all loyal soldiers At war for my security Follow me down Throw your arms into the sea From the rocky shores Of longing and uncertainty Follow me down In the fading darkness My voice rises above the wind I stop and I begin again Calling out to all loyal soldiers At war for my security Follow me down Throw your arms into the sea From the rocky shores Of longing and uncertainty Follow me down Perry Nunn: Vocals, Guitars Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass Wendy Maquera: Tambourine

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) I quit the bottle slowed down the car Tempered the tendency to go too far Suit up nice shine my shoes Laid down the law that I will never lose I do what’s right just to have you I know you know just what to do If I know what’s true So I don’t see why you don’t belong to me I don’t see why you don’t belong to me The first to know with the biggest laugh I promise you I’ll be the better half Take what’s mine won’t hesitate Keep each piece in each proper place All in control just for you Think I deserve a little follow thru It’s only right that I have you I expect the world to know what to do If I know what’s true So I don’t see why you don’t belong to me I don’t see why you don’t belong to me If we all have to follow rules Why do I feel such a desperate fool Aren’t we all just in this to win Recalculate and figure Just what I’m missing I don’t understand why you don’t want me I play the rules yet feel a fool Oh you taunt me I press so hard have so many things I feel so small why won’t you save me I don’t see why you won’t belong to me I don’t see why you don’t belong to me Perry Nunn: Vocal, Rhythm Guitar Andre Maquera: Lead Guitar, Organ Peter Engisch: Piano Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn & Sean Zigmund) There’s every reason to stay home Keep up with laundry answer the phone Manage solutions for all I’m not doing Keep a crazy pace to save me from ruin This town has left me alone and bare My heart is aching running scared On the road I’ll wander Off to where I’m bound And I’ll stay lost until I’m found Take it all with me in my pocket I’ve lived too long inside my head Walk into a labyrinth At peace but not at rest Color my days in mystery Instincts guiding me as friends And this road may never end I’m a long way away As good as gone each passing day Just let the wind blow me around Keep me lost until I’m found Keep me lost until I’m found Take it all with me in my pocket I’ve lived too long inside my head Walk into a labyrinth At peace but not at rest Color my days in mystery Instincts guiding me as friends And this road will never end All my searching may not Lead me anywhere Only know that certain change Will lead me there Walk my days in these old shoes Worn into the ground And I’ll stay lost until I’m found Perry Nunn: Vocal, Acoustic Guitar Nobby Reed: Electric & Lead Guitars Peter Engisch: Piano & Organ Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass Matt Reinhardt: Backing Vocal Linda Pervier: Backing Vocal

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) Open spaces A moment in time Somewhere someone Has made up his mind The sky as witness He lays down his defenses Draws a circle Around the horizon Walks the distance In the blink of an eye He’s just a point of view Living thru his senses Mystery is all there is When you’re mystified You got to know what’s in Before you get what’s outside At last no place to be In a world with no place to hide And in all he’ll ever need He sees there’s everything left to find Darkest valley Deepest sea Between two points Is a mountain of dreams Runoff and resistance He considers the potential He says, Take me river Flow me away Make my whole life Happen every day And he tries so hard To live on what’s essential Mystery is all there is When you’re mystified You got to know what’s in Before you get what’s outside At last no place to be In a world with no place to hide And in all he’ll ever need He sees there’s everything left to find Perry Nunn: Vocal, Acoustic & Electric Guitars Andre Maquera: Lead Guitar Peter Engisch: Piano Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) What have we done Where will we be I see that worried look in your eye A reflection of my question looking back at me Is our love strong enough to survive I’ve been good to you And I’ve been bad You’ve brought me many tears And made me oh so glad Time we thought it might be over And time when there was Nothing in our way But no hopes or fears today For the future No longing for the past No time for regrets Just let me hold you Make this moment last There’ll be time left over tomorrow Lord knows there was time left over yesterday To count all the many things we haven’t done And the obstacles in our way Still we go on and we complain Resisting every change that comes our way Time keeps racing on and on Stopping and waiting for no one But no hopes or fears today For the future No longing for the past No time for regrets Just let me hold you Make this moment last I remember looking forward to the day We’d have memories to look Back upon and smile Neglecting all the while What was clear to see Forever looking past What was near to me We go on and we complain Resisting every change that comes our way Time keeps racing on and on Stopping and waiting for no one But no hopes or fears today For the future No longing for the past No time for regrets Just let me hold you Make this moment last Perry Nunn: Vocal, Rhythm Guitar, Shaker Nobby Reed: Lead Guitars, Lead Fills Andre Maquera: Rhythm Guitar, Organ Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) So tired of wading In the tide so deep and blue Guiding you in the rhythm As waves roll over you I’ll dry off your body I’ll warm your blood and bones I’ll do all I can do But you’ve gotta Dance in the water And you know you gotta swim Or you’ll sink to the bottom Oh it’s a sad place to be Hounded to submission By the demons in your dreams Hiding in the shadows Of excess and extreme Chased on down the highway By a pack of bad memories Run all you want to But you gotta Dance in the water And you know you gotta swim Or you’ll sink to the bottom Oh that’s a sad place to be I can’t stop forever The flood with its heavy load Rising up and over You know the dam will explode We’re all taken by the river Caught up in the current and the flow We do all we can do But we gotta Dance in the water And you know you gotta swim Or you’ll sink to the bottom Oh that’s a sad place to be Perry Nunn: Vocal, Rhythm Guitar, Harmonica Nobby Reed: Lead Guitar, Lead Fills Peter Engisch: Organ Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass Matt Reinhardt: Backing Vocals

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) I know it’s easy To break apart To lose the love And find the dark Put in remission Unlighted dreams Disintegrate Swallow the screams And so it happens Thru all the haze A voice deep down and quiet Whispers in my brain Tells me Come to the circle Hold the center Sing the silence Forge connection Walk the spiral Dance eternal light and love To stumble’s easy On a road so hard A thousand alleyways Along the boulevard Step into a prison With mind-numbing ease Sample gourmet illusions Pretend it’s all free Channel distractions Pixel-perfect games Then a low steady voice Whispers my name Tells me Come to the circle Hold the center Sing the Silence Forge connection Walk the spiral Dance eternal light and love With your brothers and sisters Create a vision of action Bring the mission from the mountain Dance eternal light and love And peace And so we listen Or we turn away Either way, voices are crying Calling our names, singing Come to the circle Hold the center Sing the silence Forge connection Walk the spiral Dance eternal light and love And Peace Perry Nunn: Vocal, Guitars, Harmonica Peter Engisch: Piano Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass Matt Reinhardt: Backing Vocal

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) Late at night I lie awake and I dream Whisper her name And tuck it under my pillow Again and again Hope flows downstream Waters quench the thirst Of the weeping willow Flowers smile and flirt And give me their names She walks beside me Laughing in their glory Tho trees recall The solitude of that day Petals pressed in pages Tell a different story And all the loneliness I’m paying for I’m saving up to spend with you And if all begins to fade with the light I’ll lie awake and dream some more Evening hangs On the red rays of the sun It fades and flashes Bright on her face In the twilight Sparks, thunder, laughter Electric abandon A clap mocks my heart And echoes into the night And all the loneliness I’m paying for I’m saving up to spend with you And if all begins to fade with the light I’ll lie awake and dream some more Ribbons and waves Shimmer and drape from the stars The moon watches The aurora dance with a stranger A twisted tale A path of light through the dark A celestial trail That winds up deep in her heart And if all begins to fade with the light I’ll lie awake and dream some more Perry Nunn: Vocal, Guitars, Shaker Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) Standing in the center of a circle Directions intersect The golden space inside In silence my reflection is mirrored By trees and wind and birds And Earth and Sky Woman walks thru the fire Of the setting sun Whispering a dark picture Of desire and longing In a red desert chill My heart grows still She calls my name In a haunting shadow song I say to myself I’m tired of dying As I drink in a vision Of what’s left of me A child takes my hand and says “This really is all that is seems You know it’s never only a dream” Wandering in a crowd of people Each soul a face I almost recognize A message from a man With a mission takes my hand Leads me to a mountain I begin to climb Voices drift on the promise Of the rising sun Lifting my heart from fear To love and longing In a blanket of spring Green mountains sing I reach out and embrace This radiant song And I say to myself I’m no longer hiding As the source opens Lucid and wide The old crone says to me “You know that you know what we need And you know it’s never only a dream” Perry Nunn: Vocal, Guitar Matt Reinhardt: Guitar & Lead Guitar Peter Engisch: Pianos Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass

(Words & Music by Perry Nunn) Time I used to wander Down streets lost and lonely as a gypsy Aimless and determined To find a ghost of reason to walk with me Explained away the magic Complexified the parts Unraveled threads of mystery Sewed and binded up my heart And it’s hard not to turn the wrong way You found me With your spirit and your smile Grounding me where I’m meant to be I can hardly believe it’s all so simple I love you You love me Now I’m home Back when I would lift off from fields Bold and blissful to the stars Stride among the heavens Reaching for the edges of how far Couldn’t believe in guiding angels Too much mystical design The paths that led to heaven Wound thru mazes in my mind And I can’t forget those visions Astound me With your laughter and your light Reflect back the universe to me I can hardly believe it’s all this simple I love you You love me Now I’m home Times I still wander Into a maze of shiny mystery Ghosts and gypsies shadow Crazy angels out in front The more I think I feel I know I turn and then I miss it And it’s hard to turn the wrong way If I keep leaning toward the sun Surround me With your radiance and wonder Shine your grace for all to see I can hardly believe it’s all so simple I love you You love me Now I’m home Perry Nunn: Vocal, Acoustic Guitar, Shaker Peter Engisch: Piano Russ Lawton: Drums Aram Bedrosian: Bass
