Dare to Dream    words and music by Bill Pere

If you spend each day stuck in one theme
Open up your eyes so you can dream
If your life's a river to the sea
But that not the place you want to be
When you don't know which way to go

Swim upstream
Eyes that gleam dare to dream

If it seems you're swept up in the tide
But you see a way that's not yet tried
If you don't want to go along with the crowd
Cause you see a way out of their cloud
When you don't know which way to go

Swim upstream
Eyes that gleam dare to dream

If the river banks seem to have you locked
Cut your own canyon through the rocks...

If you feel the current pull you down
You can always find a way around
If you can't hear your own heart call
Cause you're too close to the waterfall
When you don't know which way to go

Swim upstream
Eyes that gleam dare to dream
..............................................................................................

The Dream that Came True
words and music by Bill Pere
(from the musical "Pegasus" )

There are dreams that tomorrow will never come
There are dreams that there is someone to care
But when the hand reaches out to touch these things
It closes on empty air

There are dreams of unending symphonies
There are dreams that life will be as you've planned
I dream these things just like everyone
But when I reached out my hand...

There you were, I touched your face
You touched my heart and now you grace my life
With the gentleness of lace-embroidered love
that sets the pace For my living every day
And no matter what the words I choose
To use to say 'I love you' in some new and different way
It only means one thing, you are my everything
You're the dream that came true...

There are visions of castles that float on clouds
With princes and maidens so fair
But when the eyes look to see these things
They see that nothing is there...

There are visions of riding on comet tails
There are visions of rainbows in the skies
I see these things just like everyone
But when I opened my eyes...

There you were, I touched your face
You touched my heart and now you grace my life
With the gentleness of lace-embroidered love
that sets the pace For my living every day
And no matter what the words I choose
To use to say 'I love you' in some new and different way
It only means one thing, you are my everything
You're the dream that came true...

There are dreams of soft petals that never wilt
There are dreams of peace through all the land
And I dream these dreams just like everyone
But when I reached out my hand...

There you were, I touched your face
You touched my heart and now you grace my life
With the gentleness of lace-embroidered love
that sets the pace For my living every day
And no matter what the words I choose
To use to say 'I love you' in some new and different way
It only means one thing, you are my everything
You're the dream that came true...

Amanda's Garden
words and music by Bill Pere

In Amanda's garden is a solitary rose
She tends it tenderly with nurture as it grows.
She feels the sun
The only warmth she knows

In Amanda's garden is a solitary tear
Lost amid the rainfall, the cry no one will hear
Drifts upon the wind
Only to disappear

In Amanda's garden
With the winter, earth will harden
With the gentle touch of springtime
Flowers flourish and can grow

In Amanda's garden is a solitary stone
Stoic silent memory of a life lived all alone
People see the thorns
But never see the rose
...............................................................................................
 
The Meadow Song
words and music by Bill Pere

Now I'm staring at the one I love
Afraid to blink so I don't miss a moment of
How you're smiling in the setting sun
You make each moment feel like a new love's begun
And we're standing on this meadow hill
Listening to the distant call of whippoorwills

There's a new moon peeking out from the horizon there
The smell of new-mown meadow grass fills the air tonight

Now I'm lying with the one I love
Afraid to let you go and miss a moment of
How my heart feels when you're next to me
Watching fireflies in phosphorescent symphony

There's a new moon peeking out from the horizon there
The smell of new-mown meadow grass fills the air tonight

Now I'm dreaming of the one I love
Afraid to wake so I don't a moment of
How the starlight lingers in your eye
Making halos in your hair as shooting stars go by

There's a new moon peeking out from the horizon there
The smell of new-mown meadow grass fills the air tonight
...............................................................................................

In All of My Dreams
words and music by Bill Pere

It's just a house, until you come home
It's only you who's ever known my heart
Because I've shared what I think, how I feel, how I care

You're always there, when I'm sleeping
You're there when I stare at the stars
In my heart, in my soul
Always seems you're in all of my dreams...

It's just a place, till you're beside me
Only your eyes can see inside my heart
Because you care every day, every night ,everywhere

You're always there, when I'm sleeping
You're there when I stare at the stars
In my heart, in my soul
Always seems you're in all of my dreams...

It's empty space until you hold me
When your embrace will just enfold my heart
And I'm aware It's a love, it's a life so rare

You're always there, when I'm sleeping
You're there when I stare at the stars
In my heart, in my soul
Always seems you're in all of my dreams...

Alizarin Crimson
words and music by Bill Pere
(In loving memory, William L. Pere, 1902-1969)

My father made a painting
It hangs inside my mirror
I see it every morning, and there inside the frame
I am just a child of two
Captured in a subtle hue
Colored by the vision of a complicated man I never knew

And now the Alizarin Crimson and the Cobalt Blue
Have dried upon the wooden palette long unused...

The images he rendered
Were the glimpses he surrendered
Through the frosted window pane that kept his soul secure
Until sienna eyes, once so sure
Wavered toward abstract allure
Devoid of any cynosure in a world that had no name, that had no cure

And now the Alizarin Crimson and the Cobalt Blue
Have dried upon the wooden palette long unused...

Dusty canvas, bare and white
First casualty of that final fight
That made his smile a glimmer of a flickering, failing light
So now I paint with sonic stroke
To keep alive the words he spoke
Until the sound is silenced, drifting off, dissolving in the night

And now the Alizarin Crimson and the Cobalt Blue
Have dried upon the wooden palette long unused...

Flickers
words and music by Bill Pere

The ghosts of younger days dance behind my eyes
Shadowed silhouettes of seasons past slowly sail on by
The currents of these current days
Swirl and splash in misty sprays
Hidden in the hanging haze, a lighthouse on the shore.

You're my candle in a corridor
Where dimly lit upon the door
Crooked mirror where I stare
Seeking desperately to find
The flickers of what used to be my mind...

An old familiar face, the comfort of a laugh
Now a distant half-heard song, a faded photograph
The words that always found their way
Now like ghost ships drift astray
You hold my hand, I hear you pray, above the oceans roar

You're my candle in a corridor
Where dimly lit upon the door
Crooked mirror where I stare
Seeking desperately to find
The flickers of what used to be my mind...

Sometimes I need you just to hold my hand
Sometimes I need you to tell me who I am...

The currents of these current days
Swirl and splash in misty sprays
Hidden in the hanging haze, a lighthouse on the shore.

You're my candle in a corridor
Where dimly lit upon the door
Crooked mirror where I stare
Seeking desperately to find
The flickers of what used to be my mind...

Dawn Moment
words and music by Bill Pere
featured vocal: Nicole Foley

And in that moment it's gone, and what do I feel?
I try to hang on, I keep telling myself that it's all real...

I lie there knowing the pictures are going
Watch the colors fade...
The faces, the feelings, the images reeling
Watch it all cascade

September snow, was I really there?
It's all so clear I hear the sounds but I don't know where

I lie there knowing the pictures are going
Watch the colors fade...
The faces, the feelings, the images reeling
Watch it all cascade

Every night, Pristine light
Pictures flow, Don't let go
Don't go... (Now help me hold on.
Don't go... (Now help me hold on...)
Don't go... (Now help me hold on...)
Don't go...

And with the dawn you're gone, and I'm the only one
I can't find your hand, but I understand,
Now the day's begun....
Now the day's begun.....
Now the day's begun...

I Will Never Be Lost Again
words and music by Bill Pere

Drifting in the dark of outer space
I close my eyes and visualize your face
The stark and silent beauty of the skies
Cannot console me like the world within your eyes
Now I know I had everything I need

I will never be lost again
Point the bow of my ship to the light of your star
I'm home when I'm where you are...
I felt that there was something more to see
But now I know the universe was you and me
Vermillion flares, a million shining suns
Amid galactic pyrotechnics there's just one...
Now I know I had everything I need...

I will never be lost again
Point the bow of my ship to the light of your star
I'm home when I'm where you are...
In the time that I have lived at heaven's rim
These celestial canvas colors seem to dim
When I think of how the fire in your smile
Is the sustenance to see me through each mile...
Now I know I had everything I need...

I will never be lost again
Point the bow of my ship to the light of your star
I'm home when I'm where you are...

Footsteps
words and music by Bill Pere

I see the road signs pointing south and north
East and west, directions are not clear
My mind keeps weighing, wondering,  Swaying back and forth
How to know which way to go from here

Always there at my side
My heart hears the sound of your footsteps
Calm the fear, make it clear
when the road is a pathway untried
Each day a chance to decide
To walk in the light or the darkness
Find what's right, find the spark,
set the sight and set out on the ride
Two ways to go, you are my guide

I see the canyon and I see the sky
Shadows change with every night and day
My eyes keep seeking, searching, peeking, asking why
It's hard to find a sign to point the way

Always there at my side
My heart hears the sound of your footsteps
Calm the fear, make it clear
when the road is a pathway untried
Each day a chance to decide
To walk in the light or the darkness
Find what's right, find the spark,
set the sight and set out on the ride
Two ways to go, you are my guide

I hear two voices calling me inside
With choices, and I wonder what to do
I stand before two doors that I can open wide
Which one should I open and step through

Always there at my side
My heart hears the sound of your footsteps
Calm the fear, make it clear
when the road is a pathway untried
Each day a chance to decide
To walk in the light or the darkness
Find what's right, find the spark,
set the sight and set out on the ride
Two ways to go, you are my guide

Blind Man
words and music by Bill Pere
(from the rock musical "Of Time to Come")

I am the blind man, you are my guide
You gently touch all the feelings I confide
I am the blind man, you are the sun,
Your love gives life to a body that has none...

I am a cold and lonely stray dog in the night
You are the shelter, protection from the fight
In a world of circuits where emotions have been banned
You know how to give and love and smile and understand

So who needs the world ?
We've got each other
You and I girl
We'll sing of love

You gave me a reason to go on....
When I thought life was empty, I see that I was wrong...

So who needs the world ?
We've got each other
You and I girl
We'll sing of love
...............................................................................................
The Wish
words and music by Bill Pere
 

Just beyond a star, slightly west of the moon,
In the fanciful dream of a child's afternoon
On a mountain top meadow, in a field full of phlox
He sees an old scroll and a strange wooden box

He opens up the box, sees a fine silver dish,
Says the script on the scroll, "This Will Grant You One Wish"
He smiles a great smile, his eye brightly gleams
With visions of things he'd done just in his dreams...

A thousand shining knights, and he'd be their king
With a castle and a wizard and a minstrel to sing
Dreaming of battles, it gave him a thrill
Then, a dark shadow passes over the hill...

High upon the hill as he looks down at the town
The dragon of poverty comes swooping down
With a creature of callousness, its mouth open wide,
And a beast of indifference there at its side

The children in the town give a cry of despair
They search for what would save them, but find it's not there
These children are chased by these creatures above
Searching in vain for a shield forged of love

He saw the creatures getting closer, then it all became clear,
He held the dish and said "from this world, disappear..."
The Earth breathed a sigh, the dark thunder clouds broke,
The wind whispered "Thank you"...then, he awoke.

He jumped up out of bed, it was so real it seemed,
He said "Dad, let me tell you 'bout the story I dreamed"
He told the tale to his father, his mother, his friends,
They said "It's just a dream, so forget it! A dream always ends..."

He ran into the fields in the bright summer sun
His dream faded behind him, it was time to have fun...
As he played in the meadow, there behind some large rocks,
He saw an old scroll, and a strange wooden box

When I Sing (The Sound in the Space)
words and music by Bill Pere
featured vocal: Kay Pere

I've got a song inside,
It can't sleep, it can't hide
It's got to wake up and light up the sky
Dispelling the dark, an upwelling of sparks that will fly...

When I sing
The sound in the space
Fills up my soul
With a touch of God's grace

It's been so long
Since I've sung my song
I forgot what it feels like to feel...
Though the muse is elusive the music's effusive, it's real...

When I sing
The sound in the space
Fills up my soul
With a touch of God's grace

Forgotten Cries  (Birth and Death)
words and music by Bill Pere
(from the rock musical "Of Time to Come")
Duet: Bill Pere and Melody Pere

I once knew the light of tomorrow
   I have never seen the day
I once knew the warmth of the sunrise
   I live in darkness
I feel a darkness surrounding my body
   I'm floating endlessly
The feeling of loneliness deep inside me grows...
Am I alone - I'm alone ---

Somewhere I think I've lost (I think I'm about to be)
All the things I've dreamed
Remembering all the paths ( There's a threshold to be )
Crossed, I think it seems
As though I'm not a part of the way things should be
I'm trembling with uncertainty, what's happening to me.....

Life
   I don't know what I feel
Seems to be only a vision to me
   But it seems real to me
All I once knew is not here anymore
   And I can see a light up ahead so bright
Enveloping void of intangible pictures flow
   That I'm drawn to it
That I can see....
So much evanescence pervading the essence
   Drawing me near
Of what made my world and gave acquiescence
   I can see, I can hear
To all of my senses, I have no defenses....
   Everything is strange Everything's changing
Everything's changing
   Everything's strange, Everything's strange....

   I feel myself uprooted, Movement fluid
   But not knowing where I'm going
   Getting closer all the time

I can't move or make a sound
There are no colors, all is silence
Voices in my memory cry of tranquility and violence
Fleeting recollections of the lights, the sounds the screams
Now a realization of what this nothing means...
 

I look to the heavens above hoping to find the love
In celestial gardens of light
that we see in the smile of the night
I've heard that the lights of that land
are the forces that guide our hand
Do the feelings this world has destroyed
lie in that nebulous void ?

Athena bring me wisdom
Aphrodi-te bring me love
Scorpio, Pisces bring good fortune
Gemini, Virgo where is life

If compassion lies in belief,
why can I find no relief ?
I have so many feelings to give
to the world in which I must now live

Will pity find envy Will sight find the blind
Will truth find injustice Will the soul find the mind
Where is life, Where is life, Where .... ?

A veil of tears from the mourning light
caresses the ground above
Time has no compassion, no sympathy or love

I stand alone before the door, not knowing what to find
It opens wide, I'm pulled inside, my world is left behind

I stand unclothed for all to see, the hour is at hand
My essence feels so hollow, but I think I understand...
Am I alone --- I'm alone Am I alone --- I'm alone

The green moss curtains that drape the trees
of the forest where I played
Now reach out to touch this ground
where I have just been laid to rest

Am I alone --- I'm alone Am I alone --- I'm alone
Am I left alone to face this world ? I'm labeled Capricorn
In those stars perhaps there'll be some love
for this child who's just been born..
Am I alone --- I'm alone Am I alone --- I'm alone
Am I alone I'm alone Am I alone. I'm alone

Mark on the Wall
words and music by Bill Pere

In the hall, there is a pencil line
On the wall, been there since I was nine
Though the years have brought so many tears
Still I find

When I fly to the stars on the wings of a dream
And look back on the scars of my life, they all seem
So small, they seem so small,
Like that mark on the wall.....

In despair I turned and saw your face
You were there, you showed me a better place
Like a friend, you taught me to feel again
Side by side,

When I fly to the stars on the wings of a dream
And look back on the scars of my life, they all seem
So small, they seem so small,
Like that mark on the wall.....

You showed me what I could find
When I face forward and leave behind
All the fears as each new day nears
On the stone there is a little line

Between the dates of the life that I called mine
Though I'm gone
I hope this thought lives on
Through the years

When we fly to the stars on the wings of a dream
And look back on the scars of our life, they all seem
So small, they seem so small,
Like that mark on the wall

Hourglass
words and music by Bill Pere
(From the musical "Pegasus", prelude to "She Made It All Worthwhile" )

Little boy, put down your toy
Open your eyes, the world has changed
Your friends are gone, they've grown up now
And even you are not the same somehow

People you've met,
Some you've liked, some you've left, and yet
Still time crept on, your friends look the same
Except the games they play are not much fun
It seems they care too much about who has won..

You can sit in your sandbox and build your castles
But can't you see
That the sand's running out, and it won't be long
Before you will be
On your own in a cold world,
And you'll need someone to love

Who will it be ?
You'll need a friend or two, maybe a girl
Maybe the one next door
Or the one you've always been looking for but can never find...

Oh, you say you'll be fine?
Well I know that since I found her
There's nothing more I could ask
And every star that shines is mine...
=========================================

 
She Made It All Worthwhile
words and music by Bill Pere

Once I had a dream I'd set this whole world right
But dreams have a way of fading with each morning light
I thought I'd wave a magic wand and let the whole world see
But the only one who ever seemed to look was me
No I wasn't an earth-mover, I didn't change the world
But somewhere amidst the failures I met a soft lost girl
I tried to make her happy and each time I made her smile
I knew my life meant something,  She made it all worthwhile...

Now I tiptoe through the memories
of the people that I knew
They blink, make me vanish and think
"I've got no time for you"
A transparent apparition
in both my life and death,
A dizzy dime-store dreamer
whose words were wasted breath

But it's strange,
it seemed at times I could do most anything
Always roll that seven,
checkmate any king
But now my footsteps are just echoes
in the places that I'd been
The verdict is that
life's the only game I couldn't win...

Once I had a dream I'd set this whole world right
But dreams have a way of fading with each morning light
I thought I'd wave a magic wand and let the whole world see
But the only one who ever seemed to look was me
No I wasn't an earth-mover, I didn't change the world
But somewhere amidst the failures I met a soft lost girl
I tried to make her happy and each time I made her smile
I knew my life meant something,  She made it all worthwhile...

At the funeral
they properly were all dressed up in tears
But behind the dampened handkerchiefs
hid the cynics' sneers
I wonder what they'd think
if they took time out from their race
Of dollar signs and status
and the corporate ladder race

To look at this man and see that things
are not just what they seem
He had a loving wife and family
and an ever-present dream
Yes this stranger from a strange land,
from some far-off time and place
May have died a friendless failure,
but he had a smile upon his face....

Once I had a dream I'd set this whole world right
But dreams have a way of fading with each morning light
I thought I'd wave a magic wand and let the whole world see
But the only one who ever seemed to look was me
No I wasn't an earth-mover, I didn't change the world
But somewhere amidst the failures I met a soft lost girl
I tried to make her happy and each time I made her smile
I knew my life meant something,  She made it all worthwhile...

Daydream (The Levees of New Orleans)
words by Rena Johnson,  music by Rena Johnson and Bill Pere
featured vocal: Denise Levasseur

Walking the levees of New Orleans, and as far as you can see
Is the basin of the mighty Mississippi, They call it delta country

Then you get out on highway ninety,  Cross the bridge to Pass Christian
And from Gulfport to Biloxi is a beach of clear white sand

It's the place of my upbringing,
Holds all my childhood memories
I can see it in my mind whenever I daydream...

Spanish moss hangs from the oak trees,  Huge magnolias in full bloom
Tall pines swaying in the evening breeze  Underneath the Southern moon

Loaded shrimp boats come in chugging,  Slowly to the pier they mate
And the phosphor sparkles on the water  Like lighted candles in their wake

It's the place of my upbringing,
Holds all my childhood memories
I can see it in my mind whenever I daydream...

I don't ever seem to get back there,  Things keep getting in my way
But all I have to do is close my eyes  And I can see it every day

It's the place of my upbringing,
Holds all my childhood memories
I can see it in my mind whenever I daydream...
..............................................................................................
 

Time Flies
words and music by Bill Pere

Time flies, my children's eyes
Take in every day that rushes past
Time flies, they grow wise
Finding answers for questions never asked
I hope in time they'll come to find
A life where love's not a sham
Time flies, my children's eyes
Are the mirror of all that I am.
..............................................................................................


Gasoline Cat
words and music by Bill Pere


What good is a voice
if you say what no one will hear
What good is a choice if you're running, hiding from fear
You're trying this and that but you can tell
You're just a gasoline cat wearing kerosene pants in hell

What good is applause
if they can't tell a right or wrong chord....
What good is a cause if no one's coming on board
You're trying this and that but you can tell
You're just a gasoline cat wearing kerosene pants in hell

What good is a dream
if you strive but there's nothing to reach
How good does it seem if no one learns what you teach
You're trying this and that but you can tell
You're just a gasoline cat wearing kerosene pants in hell

Sleep Little One (Orphan's Lullaby)
words and Music by bill Pere
(from the musical "Pegasus")

Go to sleep my little one
Slip away through your fairyland door
When tomorrow's sunrise calls to you
Everything will be the same as before

So enjoy your vacation,
Play your games, play hard, fast and wild
Be whatever you please, but be thankful
For the time you can spend as a child

For when you open your eyes and your fantasies fade
You'll find that despite the new sun
It's the same old room, the same old bed to be made
The same old chores to be done
But remember this well, the one real dream you can keep
Is the love I give you,
But right now, go to sleep...

Weaving winding webs of time
The passing years come and go
They take our dreams from us
And leave us things we don't wish to know

Though we can't change the pages
Of the stories in which we are cast
We find that whatever our age is
It's the dreams of the child that will last

When you open your eyes and your fantasies fade
You'll find though a new day has come
All the seas you have sailed, all the roads you have run
Have lead you right back where you started from
But remember this well, the one real dream you can keep
Is the love I give you,
But right now, go to sleep...

The Dream Held In Your Eyes (Caregiver)
words and music by Bill Pere
(from the musical "Pegasus")
featured vocal: Jaclyn Sabogal

You ask me when I look at you , what do I see ?
You ask me why I give you all the love I give for free
If I could reach beyond the fears that shadow my replies
You'd see I'm trying to be the answer
To the dream held in your eyes...

When I see that dream held in your eyes
Wishing your life was just a play you could revise
Looking for some who could love you, with a life to share
Hoping when you need a friend, someone would be there
And as you're asking all those questions,
All life's how's and why's
You look for answers laced with love instead of lies
I see that dream held in your eyes....

You ask me if I still love you in the times we disagree
Even then, I'd give you all the world,
but all I've got to give is me...
If you could see behind the smile I use as my disguise
You'd see I'm trying to be the answer
To the dream held in your eyes...

When I see that dream held in your eyes
Wishing your life was just a play you could revise
Looking for some who could love you, with a life to share
Hoping when you need a friend, someone would be there
And as you're asking all those questions,
All life's how's and why's
You look for answers laced with love instead of lies
I see that dream held in your eyes....

You ask me to remember you if the years split us apart
But it's me who really hopes that I'll live ever in your heart
If you knew the things I wish for you, you'd realize
I'm just trying to be the answer
To the dream held in your eyes...

When I see that dream held in your eyes
Wishing your life was just a play you could revise
Looking for some who could love you, with a life to share
Hoping when you need a friend, someone would be there
And as you're asking all those questions,
All life's how's and why's
You look for answers laced with love instead of lies
I see that dream held in your eyes....

Jump Start (All of Your Dreams)
words and music by Bill Pere
featured vocal: Kayla Bogan

Jump start the part sleeping there inside you
Reach up , Reach out, You can touch all of your dreams
Don't stand there and stare and let the world go by you
Reach up , Reach out, You can touch all of your dreams
Nothing's as far as it seems...
 

Feel the wind blow through the window
A whisper of words you feel deep in your soul
Let His love flow, then you'll know
You can reach out, you can touch all of your dreams...

I stood at the base of the hill
Thought I never could climb
Something inside said "You will..."
I did it one step at a time...

Jump start the part sleeping there inside you
Reach up, Reach out, You can touch all of your dreams
Unwind your mind, don't let the world go by you
Reach up , Reach out, You can touch all of your dreams
Nothing's as far as it seems...

Feel the wind blow through the window
A whisper of words you feel deep in your soul
Let His love flow, then you'll know
You can reach out, you can touch all of your dreams...

I looked at the lock on the door
Thought I'd never get through
Something said "Try just once more..."
I'm amazed at the things I can do...

Jump start the part sleeping there inside you
Reach up , Reach out, You can touch all of your dreams
Wake up , Break out don't let the world go by you
Shake up, Shake out, You can touch all of your dreams

Nothing's as far as it seems...
Feel the wind blow through the window
A whisper of words you feel deep in your soul
Let His love flow, then you'll know

You can reach out, you can touch all of your dreams....
I stood at the edge of the cliff
Couldn't cross it unless I could fly
Something inside said "what if..."

Now I can soar through the sky...
Jump start.....Jump start......
Jump start the part sleeping there inside you
Reach up , Reach out, You can touch all of your dreams

Nothing's as far as it seems...
You can reach out, you can touch all of your dreams...
All of your dreams...
All of your dreams...

i-Soul 3000 A.D.
words and music by Bill Pere  (special thanks to E.A. Murray)
(from the rock musical "Of Time to Come" )

Have you been outside ?
Are the colors clear and bright like I've heard ?
Just thought I'd ask..
Have you seen those lucky people
who live outside this dome ?
I know you've been out there
bringing things to their homes...

Insufficient information
Cannot make evaluation
Cannot accept, cannot refute
Not enough data to compute
What is color ?

You mean to say
You've been out there every day
and you don't know what it's like ?
Well how's the weather
That's not a hard one to answer now, is it ?
Is it raining or is the sun bright in the sky?
Do the clouds roll by driven gently by an invisible wind ?

Insufficient information
Cannot make evaluation
Cannot accept, cannot refute
Not enough data to compute
What is invisible ?

I don't believe it ! It's utterly unreal !
Can't you even see or hear or think or touch or feel ?
What can you do ?
They say we're not as good as you..
Well prove it, I insist
Don't just stand there like none of you exist !

Insufficient information
Cannot make evaluation
Cannot accept, cannot refute
Not enough data to compute
What is existence ?
Well it's certainly not this...

Such a Short Step
words and music by Bill Pere

She comes in from the cold, sits down by the fire,
and dries her eyes
Quiet, alone, the crackle asks her why she cries
But her tale remains untold
She fears she'll find the glowing fire dies

He sits in the park, under a tree,
a lonely stray
Autumn's leaves ask him what he has to say
But his tale remains untold
He fears all the leaves will blow away

But how're they gonna know how smooth is the landing
How warm is the water unless they put a hand in
Maybe they will find the distance they have spanned in
Such a short step is more than they thought...

They climb the hill
but never reach for the sky
The rippling water trickles by and asks them why
But their tale remains untold
They fear the stream will soon run dry

But how're they gonna know how smooth is the landing
How warm is the water unless they put a hand in
Maybe they will find the distance they have spanned in
Such a short step is more than they thought...

You're So Jejune
words and music by Bill Pere
featured vocal: Rachelle Seney and Diggy Tawka

(blah blah blah....)
You're so jejune it's out of tune
You ruin my life
When you walk into the room
It gets so morose when you get verbose
And you attack me with syntactical alacrity
It makes me lacrimose
You could be sweet as galactose but
Your voice is stentorian,
It's full of midichlorians
My heart's marooned, you're so jejune

(blah blah blah....)
With your spectacular vernacular
Your mouth is full of words I never heard
I can't get no osculation
Your pharyngeal vibration
Has your buccal parts all movin'
And you set yourself to provin'
You're a lexical sensation
Cause you want a reputation that no one can impugn
But I learned real soon, you're so jejune

(blah blah blah....)
I see you're just a theurgist
It's all smoke and illusion
Your confusing fusillade is a tirade,
A facade you made
I can't speak my mind, the words bind behind
Your misperception .
Your misconception of my vilification
is floccinaucinihilipilification
I never meant us to be so jumentous
This love is just a cartoon, you're so jejune...

The Game
words and music by Bill Pere

Wonder
Feel the Thunder
When you understand... its name
You can win the Game

Effervescent (Come on out, come and play)
Intumescent (Don't let life get away)
Evanescent light...hold the flame
You can win the Game

Reflection
Intersection
New direction now...new frame
You can win the Game

Frenetic (Every day, always there)
Empathetic (When you show that you care)
Copacetic now...no blame
You can win the Game

Swing the Carousel
words and music by Bill Pere

Swing the carousel
And sing the chorus well
You just can't tell
Where in the song the ride will end ---
A phrase unfinished, a note you'll never sing
Don't know if you'll reach that brass ring...

You don't get a chance to repeat
If your circle of life's not complete...

Swing the carousel
And sing the chorus well
You just can't tell
Where in the song the ride will end ---
Changing horses as you spin around
Don't know if you'll end up or down...

You don't get a chance to repeat
If your circle of life's not complete...

Swing the carousel
And sing the chorus well
You just can't tell
Where in the song the ride will end ---
Calliope is playing, kaleidoscope of sound
Will you make it one last time around?

You don't get a chance to repeat
If your circle of life's not com....
