Remixed, remastered and reissued, February, 2016.

Our goal when we started work on this, our fifth album together, was to wrap up everything sometime in mid-2013. Well, we made it...with time to spare.

Not bad for a couple of digitally itinerant musicians who remain separated by that not-insignificant body of water called the Atlantic Ocean.

Someday, the two of us will meet...in person. Until then, our music continues to draw us together in a way that transcends distance.

With the release of "Middle of Nowhere", more of that music is now ready to flow from our minds to your ears...and is available for free download, to boot! (If we were in it for the money, we'd be brain surgeons...or hedge-fund managers! lol)

Enjoy...

Track Name: World Will Turn
World will turn – time will tell
Lady Luck will cast her spell
Make the most of here and now
The world will keep on turning anyhow

It matters now more than life itself
Deep in love that burns and hurts like hell
But what’ll it matter a million years from now
We’ll all be burned to stardust anyhow

You have to try and change your point of view
Stand outside and take a look at you
What’ll it matter when seen from over there
You’ll look at you and do you think you’ll care

And what’ll it matter that you feel so sad
And all of your dreams have turned sour and gone bad anyhow
And what’ll it matter ‘bout me, about you
Or anything that we may say or may do anyhow

World will turn – time will tell
Lady Luck will cast her spell
Make the most of here and now
The world will keep on turning anyhow

We’re all caught up in time inside our heads
Counting coffee spoons until we’re dead
So why not just enjoy the here and now
The world will keep on turning anyhow
Track Name: Take Your Time
Take your time now
Floating by yourself will do you fine
Take it slow now
Stepping lightly nothing on your mind
And nothing and nobody can touch you
Nothing and nobody can hurt you
If you only take your time

Drift along now
Anywhere you want to you can go
Keep it slow now
Time is right that’s all you need to know
And nothing and nobody can hold you
Nothing and nobody controls you
If you only take your time

Time is there to make sure
Everything just doesn’t happen all at once
Space is where you take the time
To make the most of each experience
And learn to shine

Let it flow now
Feel the future shaping in your mind
Keep it slow now
Everything will come to you in time
And nothing and nobody can reach you
Nothing and nobody can beat you
If you only take your time
Only take your time
Track Name: Scars on the Land
Scars on the land…lines in the sand…

There’s a shadow on our soul
In the shape of Black Gold
Between the mountains and the sky
Where we spit in God’s eye

Scars on the land…lines in the sand…

And there’s a battle for the night
Between the dark and the light
We rape the desert and the green
To chase industrial dreams

Between denial and the lies
We feel the temperatures rise
Can we acknowledge what we know
Or will we reap what we sow?

It doesn’t matter if you lean to the left or the right
It doesn’t matter where you say you stand
We share only one world, one chance to get it right
And heal the scars on the land

Scars on the land...lines in the sand...
Track Name: Middle of Nowhere
I’m in the middle of nowhere
I’m in the middle of nowhere
I’m in the middle of nowhere
So far from you

I’m in the middle of nowhere
I’m in a place out of time
I’m lost in a cloud
I can’t see my way out

I’m in a state of confusion
Feel like I’m an illusion
I’m all in a haze
I’ve seen better days

I used to be fine
With you by my side
Now I feel way off the mark
Where did you go
Who turned out the lights
Now it’s a dance in the dark

Between a rock and a hard place
Don’t know which way to turn
I’m frozen in flight
I got nowhere to run

I used to be fine
With you by my side
Now I feel way off the mark
Where did you go
Who turned out the lights
Now it’s a dance in the dark

I’m in the middle of nowhere
I’m in the middle of nowhere
I’m in the middle of nowhere
So far from you
Track Name: Beautiful Sound
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY
FOR SINGING A SONG
WITH A BEAUTIFUL MELODY
BUT IT'S NO FUN AT ALL
TO SING IT ALONE
COME SING IT ALONG WITH ME
LET'S LIVE IN A SONG
AND PLAY ON A RHYME
WITH A BEAUTIFUL HARMONY
WHEN THE PROBLEMS YOU FACE
TEAR YOU APART
LET THE MUSIC SET YOU FREE

ALL THE PEOPLE WALKING DOWN
THAT CROWDED AVENUE
THEY'D HEAR A HAPPY SONG
AND THEY'D CHASE AWAY THE BLUES
A MOMENT OF WORDS
LIKE A SCULPTURE OF CLAY
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SOUND
FOR A BEAUTIFUL DAY

WITH BEAUTIFUL SMILES
COME STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
AND THE SOUND OF A SYMPHONY
WE'LL PLAY IN THE SUN
WHILE UNDER THE SHADE
AND DRIFT AWAY TO DREAM

ALL THE CHILDREN PASSING BY
WOULD LOVE THE SONG WE SING
LIKE A MOTHER'S LULLABYE
IT ECHOES IN THE SPRING
FORGET AND FORGIVE
LET TROUBLE FADE AWAY
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SOUND
FOR A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL SOUND
LET ME SHOW YOU THE WAY
TO A BEAUTIFUL DAY
Track Name: Listen to Your Heart
Don’t hide your dreams – they’ll wither in the dark
Hold tight your dreams and keep them in your heart
It’ll be alright, it’ll be alright, it’ll be alright
Listen to your heart

Take all your dreams and fly them to the sun
Don’t listen if they say you’ll crash and burn
It’ll be alright, it’ll be alright, it’ll be alright
Take your dreams and run

Don’t listen if they say that you’re a fool
The ugly duckling turned out pretty cool
Listen to your heart
Take aim for the stars
Be yourself and you’ll be wonderful

Don’t listen when they say be like the rest
Go your own way – set out on your quest
It’ll be alright, it’ll be alright, it’ll be alright
Just try to be the best

Don’t listen when they lecture golden rules
A rebel with a cause is no-one’s fool
Listen to your heart
Take aim for the stars
Be yourself and you’ll be wonderful

Don’t hide your dreams – they’ll wither in the dark
Hold tight your dreams and keep them in your heart
It’ll be alright, it’ll be alright, it’ll be alright
Just listen to your heart
Track Name: Greasepaint Teardrops
We all know the song about the tears of a clown
Behind the painted smile he’s really wearing a frown
Hides a broken heart behind a greasepaint mask
The show must tumble on no matter he’s downcast

Oh-ho, it’s a hard knock life
Oh-ho, it’s trouble and it’s strife
Oh-ho, it cuts you like a knife
You gotta toughen up boy and face up to life

Rip that heart from offa your sleeve
Smile that smile as if you believe
Play the clown and dance to deceive
You gotta toughen up boy - life is such a wheeze, oh-ho

We all got the shining and the Nicholson smile
Life is a circus artiste dripping with guile
We all want the limelight and the ringmaster’s hat
But Hotel California’s where the party’s at

Oh-ho, it’s a hard knock life
Oh-ho, it’s trouble and it’s strife
Oh-ho, it cuts you like a knife
You gotta toughen up boy and face up to life, oh-ho

Rip that heart from offa your sleeve
Smile that smile as if you believe
Play the clown and dance to deceive
You can check out any time
But you can never leave

Oh-ho, it’s a hard knock life
Oh-ho, it’s trouble and it’s strife
Oh-ho, it cuts you like a knife
You gotta toughen up boy and face up to life, oh-ho
Track Name: A Day Without Your Love
Through the times we had together
I seldom let it show
I thought that you would know I loved you
And now it seems you’re gone forever
And I’m here on my own
A lonely man without a plan
To make it through a day without your love

And all the time that we were lovers
You never ran away
You knew just what to say to make me strong
And when I’d try to run for cover
Your smile would make me stay
But now I need to find a way
To make it through a day without your love

Now I must face the morning Sun
Knowing I’ll be waking up alone
Without the joy that used to come
When I’d awake and find you there
The morning soft upon your hair
And visions of a life I’d share with you

So if it seems at times I miss you
I hope you’ll understand
It’s not because I planned to tie you down
But I would give the world to kiss you
Or even touch your hand
But as it is I only live
To make it through a day without your love
Track Name: The Voice Inside
How many times you said if only I’d tried
How many times you felt if only I’d cried
How many times you thought I should not have lied
Oh, it pays for you to listen to the angel inside

You don’t need Ten Commandments to know wrong from right
You sure don’t need no burning bush to tell dark from light
You’re born with a conscience – an angel inside
Oh, it pays for you to listen to the voice in your mind

And any time you feel alone
Listen to the voice inside and know
You’re part of something whole
We’re all connected all the time
Oh, it pays for you to listen to the voice in your mind

It’s like – Go down Moses, take your people home
Too long in the desert you left them to roam
Gather the children before storm clouds come
Hear the voice and make the choice and don’t be alone

And any time you feel all by yourself
Listen to the voice inside and know
You’re part of something else
We’re six degrees apart at most
You’ve only got to listen and you’ll never get lost

Listen to the voice inside
And you will always get it right
There’s an angel in your mind
Listen to the voice inside
Then take someone’s hand
Walk to the Promised Land
And together we’ll make a stand
Listen to the voice inside
There’s an angel in your mind
Listen to the voice inside
Be like Moses, take your people home
Be like Moses, take your people home
Be like Moses, take your people home
Track Name: All the Friends I've Known
All the friends that I have known
They’ve been around for oh so long
To help me through
When the night is lonely
And filled with only a song

And when the Sun refused to shine
Casting shadows ‘cross my mind
With thoughts of leaving it
All behind me
They tried to help me get by

And all the friends that I have found
They’ve always been around when I need them
The greatest treasure a man can own
Is all the friends I’ve known
