Track Name: Taming the Kraken
Ships are safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.
You won't find your true love, til you walk out that door
Set sail for the new world
Hoist the jib and weigh anchor
Think about sea-going metaphors
And leave harbor

Lately I've been occupied
By some mental octopi
Truth be told, I'm at sea
Channeling the beast in me

Can't be what I need to be
Being what I used to be
Can't learn secret mysteries
Til I learn to set it free

Waves, crashing down, crashing down over me
Taming the Kraken, let the Kraken carry me

Will not let it drag me under
Know that I will bring the thunder
The ocean will not be my death
The beast and I will share a breath

Chorus twice
Track Name: It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time
We decided to leave the planet
It seemed like a good idea at the time
We left right after breakfast
We wanted to be first in line

Away we flew beyond the blue
Across the starry sea
At full horses, we set our courses
For Kepler 22-B
