Goetz I had the luck to see Morgan last fall and he turned out to be an incredibly powerful entertainer, positive and inspiring as few people I know or have witnessed in concert. I love this album because of the heavier approach in comparison to much of his different, more acoustic oriented material. Also recommend the other albums of him , intelligent and versatile singer/songwriter tunes really (as on in/security) but the rock feeling featured here gets me everytime! Thank you for the music Morgan. Favorite track: Sound of Industry.

(in)Security 03:22
across a bridge, along a shore the skies born some years ago steel fence that holds the cliffs at bay unlocks the point I’d put away security, a bolder aim the roads I run never the same I’m not sure I’ll get what I paid for let down my guard to touch her face gave up my heart to keep my place I cupped my hands, shielded my eyes but no big love for me, but no big surprise security, I’ll be ok you and my love out of the way I’m not sure I’ll get what I paid for a dot in space, a satellite watch down over me on through the night longer the train, further apart know where I am… know where to start security, you wretched scheme you’ll break my heart before my dream I’m not sure I’ll get what I paid for I’m not sure I’ll get what I paid for

Merge 03:18
Walk up alone, push open the door Send the taxi on its way Leave the bits of glass across the floor Empty predictions Have I got it in me to merge Will I find a way to wait These exits go on forever Time to consolidate Got no time to take it in Pictures tilted, and out of frame Don’t sit down, don’t take a stand Don’t take your coat off Have I got it in me to merge Will I find a way to wait These exits go on forever Time to consolidate Well I’ve had it with keeping pieces of another life ‘Cause none of what’s left is right It’s time to come clean, till empty fits no more Skies afire, freezing wind Bring my mind back to today The open road, the shape I’m in No time for pictures Have I got it in me to merge Will I find a way to wait These exits go on forever Time to consolidate

the Monet looks back at me from walls that cannot see gonna stay here when I lock the door cross the lobby and return the key smoke streams smell like change in which way I don’t really know maybe checkout will make a difference anything to take me home shifting through the breakers white skies pure as snow the sheets my father packed me flap quietly where I go when I grow old and tired of t-shirts in some ways, I already have maybe I’ll belong to Jesus anything to take me home anything anything yeah

Ran down from the mountain Suey to the sea Swim with sharks and angels… they all, they all know me Pushing with my left hand Leaves my knife hand free do you think you know me… well, we’ll see Killing time… killing me Digging for melody in the empty sound of industry Whatever I trust… to set me free Still couldn’t hold a flame to the paper soul of industry Out on the street Tied up in the old town Harboured up in me Distant flights of fancy, I took to make me clean Behind the glass of Gate 10 A big plane starts to roar Covered by the jetstream… a cold dream Killing time… killing me Digging for melody in the empty sound of industry Whatever I trust… to set me free Still couldn’t hold a flame to the paper soul of industry I’ll be just a matchstick I’m a drop of grease Killing time… killing me Digging for melody in the empty sound of industry Whatever I trust… to set me free Still couldn’t hold a flame to the paper soul of industry

I get some time to myself Handfuls of moments in a day You’ve faded somehow out of what now holds in store And I wonder if you think I got away? I got the pictures that you sent A random email that I meant to get you back on yesterday Do I remember... could I forget? Did fallen leaves not cover our feet Did waves at Jericho not crash the whole way down Have I ever told you what that means Here on the edge I’m looking out Almost as much as I’ve been looking in This little island shines across the ice That covers the St. Laurence like a skin I think I missed you coming round Saw your footprints on the ground, before the wind washed them away Do I remember... could I forget? Did fallen leaves not cover our feet Did waves at Jericho not crash the whole way down Have I ever told you what that means… to me? I trusted time to make it all ok Stuck in stop-motion I don’t feel the same ‘cause I meant to get you back Do I remember... could I forget? Did fallen leaves not cover our feet Did waves at Jericho not crash the whole way down Have I ever told you what that means… to me?

d’ici demain, plan de suivi dirigera l’homme que je suis par la fenêtre, brûlant des yeux illuminera… chemins, parcours, du mieux changer de pays trouver ses yeux à cent mille lieux que m’attendra, importe qui ne me connaîtrait mourir d’envie d’ici matin, perte de sommeil neuvement forme, l’homme que je suis et disparaître toute cette ennui figé à place, courant dans la pluie changer de vie de toucher Dieu… un nouveau milieu que m’attendra, importe qui ne me connaîtrait mourir d’envie mourir d’envie …ne me connaîtrait

Samson’s ride slowed down Pulled up to the lonely beat-up curb Outside things were only getting wetter As he reached for the door He dug deep for some change that he did not have Emptied but for one last weary thank you Another fine man breaking Something take the edge off… losing Stands there looking around Watching all the people stress on by Winter sends a chill that drives him upstairs And all the way across the floor Down a darkened hallway to his bedroom door Fumbling for the means to take him upstairs Another fine man breaking Something take the edge off… losing Pull yourself together Don’t you want to live forever? Ain’t we all in this together? Have you bought those lines before… Pull yourself together Don’t you want to live forever? Ain’t we all in this together? Have you bought those lines before… Are you ready for one more? Five new years pass by Samson tells a caller in a smoky voice How little we know, until we’ve been there Another fine man breaking Something take the edge off… losing

Mescaline 04:17
the door you found unlocked... I'd asked you to come right in you found your way just fine, to the suite where I was talking on the phone, to someone who'd always cared I let you be alone... to wonder of my plans if what you say is true, then I can stop excusing you making you look good if dreaming has to end, then I can stop this blaming you for what I put me through my mescaline we looked across Berlin... and thought about LA I kissed your private skin, and pushed my thoughts away your shiny heart of steel... a polished glass within you gave me back your key, and left me with my fix if what you say is true, then I can stop excusing you making you look good if dreaming has to end, then I can stop this blaming you for what I put me through my mescaline if what you say is true, then I can stop excusing you making you look good if dreaming has to end, then I can stop this blaming you for what I put me through

winter chill, late in the day lonely horse comes without a sound little whispers clear the way follow the dust trails into town come to lay his tired head down the blessing of time… the burning of youth… blessed by things that only come and go, burned by the truth… blessed be the dream… burned into you… from the steppes of these fields of gold, to the fires by the river on the ridge, roll the wheels out of the valley, on the edge of her seat little schoolgirl looks around at the 1870s so many things in store the blessing of time… the burning of youth… blessed by things that only come and go, burned by the truth… blessed be the dream… burned into you… from the steppes of these fields of gold, to the fires by the river from waterfalls through canyon walls, an echo smoke signals never seen, never far behind the blessing of time… the burning of youth… blessed by things that only come and go, burned by the truth… blessed be the dream… burned into you… from the steppes of these fields of gold, to the fires by the river
