  • 1. Still Looking For Something
  • 2. My Cleveland Heart
    I'm going to make a few changes right away
    The way I leap and the way I fall
    The way I need somebody else's eyes to see me
    The way I need anyone at all
    But I expect the real changes to start
    When I finally get my Cleveland Heart
    They're made to take a bashin'
    And never lose their passion

    They never break
    They don't even beat
    And they don't ache
    They just plug in and shine
    Don't make mistakes
    And they don't know defeat
    Like my heart makes
    Like this broken heart of mine

    I've been walkin' that broken line between
    The way life is and the way it seems
    I've been stranded on that endless straightaway
    Between the truth and my wildest dreams
    But I will no longer need to tell them apart
    When I've finally got my Cleveland Heart
    They just keep on hopin'
    And stay so big and open

    They never break
    They don't even beat
    And they don't ache
    They just plug in and shine
    Don't make mistakes
    And they don't know defeat
    Like my heart makes
    Like this broken heart of mine

  • 6. Downhill From Everywhere
    Downhill from the prison, downhill from the mall
    Downhill from the factory farm and the hospital Downhill from the border wall
    Downhill from the high school, downhill from the gym
    Downhill from the church and the stadium Downhill from the baby's room
    Downhill from the office, downhill from the bar
    Downhill from the theme park and the family car Downhill from happy hour

    Downhill from everywhere, downhill from all you see
    The ocean is downhill from gravity
    Downhill from here, downhill from everywhere
    Downhill from all of humanity

    Downhill from the silver screen
    Downhill from the Anthropocene
    Downhill from the vineyard, downhill from the mine
    Downhill from the fruited plain and the bottom line Downhill from Columbine
    Downhill from the racetrack, downhill from the news
    Downhill from the sponsors and the camera crews Downhill from the born to lose
    Downhill from God's golden shore
    Downhill from the grocery store
    Downhill from the Senate floor
    K street, and the never ending war

    Downhill from everywhere, downhill from all you see
    The ocean is the last stop for gravity
    Downhill from here, downhill from everywhere
    And all mankind's ambition and vanity

    Do you think of the ocean as yours?
    Because you need the ocean to breathe
    Every second breath you take is coming from the sea
    And we don't really know, because we don't really see
    Do you think of the ocean as yours?
    Do you think about it at all?

    Downhill from the campus, downhill from the loan Downhill from the funeral home
    Downhill from the laptop, downhill from the trolls Downhill from the Russian doll
    Downhill from the NRA
    Downhill from the GOP
    Downhill from the ICE,
    And your huddled masses yearning to be free

  • 7. The Dreamer
  • 8. Until Justice Is Real
  • 9. A Little Soon To Say
    I came for inspiration, I came looking for Grace
    And found my reflection in every passing face
    And everyone who gathered, standing on that shore
    Searching the horizon, not knowing what exactly for
    Searching the horizon for what we can't quite see
    When all we've ever needed
    Has been there all along inside of you and me

    I want to see you holding out your light
    I want to see you light the way
    But whether everything will be alright -
    It's just a little soon to say

    I didn't find much wisdom when time was on my side
    Too little information, too much time to decide
    I took a couple wrong turns - it only takes you one
    To send you down a lifetime
    Of wondering what you might have done
    Searching for a lifetime for what you want to see
    When all we've ever needed has been there all along
    Inside of you and me

    I want to see you holding out your light
    I want to see you find your way
    Beyond the sirens and the broken night
    Beyond the sickness of our day
    And after what we've come to live with
    I want to know if you're ok
    I've got to think it's going to be alright
    It's just a little soon to say

    I came for inspiration, I came looking for truth
    And joined in celebration, the passing of my youth
    We're here but for a moment and none of us can see
    Beyond the horizon - what kind of world this world will be
    Searching the horizon for what we hope to see
    When all we've ever needed has been there all along
    Inside of you and me

    I want to see you holding out your light
    I want to see you light the way
    Beyond the sirens and the broken night
    Beyond the sickness of our day
    And after all we've come to live with
    I want to know if you're ok
    I want to think it's going to be alright
    It's just a little soon to say
