Lyrics

Baker

Written By: Music and lyrics by Casey Keele

Every morning I wake up about five minutes too soon
And I look outside hoping for a change of view
But every day it looks the same
it’s like staring through a picture frame
And every night I pray that something out there will change

But the worst part is not feeling any different than I did the day before
Oh I just can’t stand not seeing anything different than I looked at the day before
And we all know what’s in store
Here in Baker

Cause all we’ve got is an oversized thermometer
And all we’ve got is overpriced goods
And all we’ve got are memories of how we wished it was
And all we need new is a reason to live
Here in Baker

A sea of brown, a sky of blue, a jet black freeway running through
I am jealous of its purpose and direction
This town has been around since Nineteen Thirty-Two
And there’s till nothing to do

But the worst part is not feeling any different than I did the day before
Oh I just can’t stand not seeing any different than I looked at the day before

And I thought that love was more than just
Tourists driving through on a Friday afternoon
and I wish they wouldn’t leave so soon
‘cause we’ve got our oasis of fast food and gas stations
And they don’t really need much
But I’ve been wanting so much
Though I’ve never really known much else
But something inside me tells me I need something else
Then what I’ve found in Baker
Here in Baker

Ships of Sand

Written By: Music and Lyrics by Steven Keele


1-It’s been a long time since I’ve seen her,
It’s been a long time since I’ve cared.
I would like to come and see you,
In galaxies where none have dared.

Chorus:
Sailing away, on ships of sand,
Sailing to the starlight sun.
Coming back from distant lands,
Going to the Land of None.

2- Packed up the ship and started that day,
Off through the endless shores.
We came down through the milky way,
To where we never, ever been before
Chorus:

3- Finally came to the Land of None,
Came through the endless shores.
I found you there and we went away,
To the Land of Nevermore.
