Track Name: Lost
Just across the way
Where the train goes
Late night
It carries dreams
Into the steam
And then they take flight
An iron horse, her iron ores'll lay the cars low
The embers bright, they echo flies behind the jars glow
I had a sense I'd been misplaced
Set adrift, led astray
I didn't know which way to go

I was lost when you found me
Lost when you found me
Runnin' through the wild
All the while in a sound sleep
But just then I heard a whisper in the wood
I cannot lie I would've kissed her if I could
I gotta be smart
Cut my loss and restart
Keep guard
I heard you had a weak heart
I heard you had a weak heart

Out beyond the break
Beneath the waves
In the deep blue
Down below
The indigo begins to bleed through
I heard a voice beyond the noise that poisons dry land
There in the fold the dark and cold were holding my hand
I had the sense I'd been embraced
Taken home, shown the way
Oh, what a sight for weary eyes
Track Name: Sirens
Once you hear the siren's song
It'll haunt you all night long
Go that way you're bound to pay your toll
It's the devil in disguise
And every time you tell your lies
It takes a few more pieces of your soul

I'm not a sinner
As it goes, I'm no saint
I sleep through the winter
Lie in wait until the rain dries
The fatal flaw
Within us all
We try to tame fire
Light me up and let me go
The way they tell it
You'd forget it's never all bad
Just don't expect for them to catch you
When you fall back
It's awful late
You think you'll make it through the tall grass?
Set me up and let me go

Might be a dreamer
As it goes, I'm not alone so
I know recourse
Is never more
Than just a stones throw
You want enlightenment
Start lightenin' your own load
Pull the pin and let me go
When dogs are sleepin'
You'd do best to let 'em lie now
Don't be compelled
To delve in wells
Already dried out
You want direction
Start by gettin' off of my cloud
Cut me loose and let me go

It's all a prison
As it goes, I'm on the outside
The crystal walls
I long to leap
They keep me bound tight
You bate your breath
Or better yet
I'll take it outright
I paid my debt so let me go
Your footing's weak
You put your teeth
Before your tongue now
They gave you rope enough
They'd hoped you'd never come down
The hours east
As shadows creep
Across the sundial
Steal a kiss and let me go

The sirens sing a song that'll put you to a true test
Can't you see it's just the devil in a blue dress
Wolf comin' with her sheep clothes on
But she don't mean to keep those on
Track Name: Whatever You Please
Call me when you come thru town
Maybe we could pick things up
I got a lot of thoughts to drown
Maybe I could push my luck
I see you in my dreams sometimes
But I could never tell you why
I could never take you there
Maybe I could get you by

Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Whenever you call
Whatever you please
If you move a little closer
I wouldn’t think twice
How could I say no to those
Bedroom eyes

Call me when you come thru town
Maybe we could make things right
Tell me how I let you down
Maybe you could stay the night
I find you on my mind sometimes
But I don’t ever tell you when
Maybe I could let you go
Maybe you could let me in

Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Whenever you call
Whatever you please
I couldn’t tell you no
If you came around tonight
When the lights begin to dim
I’m in your bedroom eyes

Call me when you come thru town
Maybe you could hear my song
Tell me how I broke your heart
Tell me how it made you strong
Tell me what you’re up to now
Tell me why it’s been so long
Maybe I could turn back time
And you could say those days are gone

Out in the dark
Against the ropes
I felt her lovin’ overcome me
Then the levy broke
She pulled me close
And whispered something low
“I don’t mind walkin’ the coals
Lightnin’ strikes
Once or twice
You and I should know
I don’t mind walkin’ the coals”
Track Name: Come Back Down
Do you really wanna walk that wire
You'll hit your stride but
Everybody tires, I know
And every time you toe that line
You move a little closer
Any minute over now
Do you really wanna break my fall
Could be the last one
First of many, all I know
But every time I touch your sky
It's something like the sunrise
I gotta come back down

So when I'm up
Or stuck in my rut
Trust that all I really need's your love
And it's enough
Feelin' your touch
I gotta come back down

Do you really wanna go that road
You'll find it winding
In and out of sight, I know
And every curve is serpentine
Tryna work your weakness
Quick to leave you bleedin' out
Do you really wanna feed that fire
I'm on a slow burn
We could turn the lights down low
But every time you get me high
It's something like the sunrise
I gotta come back down

Hypnotized by the moonlit sky
And the sound of the waves on the sand
Her shoulders bare
Salt wind in her hair
I was hypnotized by the moonlit sky
And the sound of the waves on the sand
Her shoulders bare
Salt wind in her hair
Hypnotized by every strand
Track Name: Love
Everyone you love
Everyone you love
Gave you all they had
But even that was not enough
You turned and walked away
You turned and walked away
You knew that you'd be back
You'd have to think on what to say
I never left
I never said goodbye
I'll only say goodnight
And in the morning when you rise
You'll open up your eyes
And I'll be right here by your side
Makin' sure you feel love

Every time you hurt
Every time you hurt
People see you're down
And come to kick you in the dirt
And every single time
You think that shit could not get worse
The hypocrites'll kick a verse
Like they're preachin' in the church
I'll never curse
I'll never lie
Be the one to hold her
Give a shoulder when she cries
Make you smile 'til I die
Be the sun to light your sky
Makin' sure you feel love

Every lie you tell
Every lie you tell
You're putin' up your trust for sale
When the boy cried wolf
And ain't nobody wanna help
If you lose a little pride
It might be just as well, yea
I got a bridge that could never burn
I'll be your tether
When the weather wanna turn
If you ever feel alone
I'll be there to guide you home
Makin' sure you feel love

Everywhere you go
Everywhere you go
Bones been soaked
From the pillar to the post
All the reelin' from the road
And now you're feelin' like a ghost
'Cause ya damn near broke
Everything you hold close now
I do believe you could use a break
In the middle of the day
I'll deliver your shade
And if you ever feel afraid
I'll be there to keep you safe
Makin' sure you feel love
Track Name: Hookie
Thought she was goodie-goodie
Then she say she playin’ hookie

I been hookie too
I been to the graveyard
I been to the loop
Spray-paintin’ on the freight cars
I been to the lime pit
Down around the way
But it don’t matter where I go
When I get home my momma say
She say “Hey!
Boy, move the coop, yea
Bird need to root
See the water’s gone dry
And there ain’t no food”
Tell ‘em “Tote it on along
There, under the shade tree
Don’t wanna tan yer hide
So don’t make me”

I been hookie too
I been to the road blocks
I been to the roof
Of the inn out at the boat docks
I been to the power lines
Up around the bend
But it down matter where I go
When I get home my ma lament
She say “Hey!
Boy, move the coop, yea
Bird need to roost
See the water’s gone dry
And there ain’t no food”
Tell ‘em “Tote it on along
There, under the shade tree
Don’t wanna tan yer hide
So don’t make me”
Track Name: Rider
I’m a rider on a wave
The never meets shore
I’m sailin’ through the straights
But I’ll never reach my port
It’s important you know that I
Truly do
Love you when I can
I surely know that it doesn’t always show
But our love is more the lion than the lamb

I’m a rider on a wave
That never meets shore
I’m comin’ ‘round the cay
But I’ll tether never more
It’s important you know that I
Truly do
Love you when I can
I surely know as though it’s written into stone
That our love is more the lion than the lamb
A lion and a rider on a wave

Oh, away they go
A sinking in the soul
You’re losing all control
Forgotten in the cold
Away they go

I’m a rider at the gate
But I’m only passing through
Then I’m off to meet my fate
In the shadow of the moon
It’s important you know that I
Always will
Love you when I can
It only blooms when I let it spread it roots
But it spoils if the soils made of sand
She toils for her rider at the gate
Track Name: Made for Song
I’m living in my head
Living in my head
I’m burning up alone
And a million miles away
A million miles away
I’m tryna make in home
I hear the echoes sing
I hear the echoes sing
It’s darkest near the dawn
But even in this dark
Even in this dark
A bird is made for song

I’m tilting at the mills
Tilting at the mills
I’m dropping out of phase
I’ve come to wake the dead
Come to wake the dead
Before the spirits fade
I feel the earthen pull
I feel the earthen pull
But it’s not where I belong
The sun is made to shine
The sun is made to shine
And a bird is made for song

I’ve hit my clip
On a trip
As the crow flies
Heaven knows
I’m alone
But I don’t mind
I’ll be home
To atone
For the long days
Soon enough my love
While I’m gone
Sing a song
To the night sky
Mind the thieves
When you sleep
Keep your eyes wide
I’ll be home
To atone
For shortfall
Any day my love

When I was younger I’d sit underneath the thunderclouds
Feel the water hit my skin and then I’d wonder how
They dropped their proffer but it offers little comfort now
I’ve checked my heading I am destine for the underground
Now that I’m older I’ve been shouldered with an albatross
For auld lang syne, I knew in time our paths were bound to cross
Nobody makes it to the end of life without a loss
You’ve gotta keep an even keel or you’ll be found awash
Track Name: Spider
Why would the wicked
Wanna break my stride
I could forgive
But not a day goes by
That I don’t think about it
I’ve come to never doubt it
Runnin’ off at your mouth
It’s kin to livin’ in a powder keg
So get me lit
I’m tryna ease my mind
I curse the burdens that I leave behind
In a world of violence and hate
Where cruel indifference pervades
I show compassion
Imagine

Tell me what you come for
Spider at the front door
What kind of pain
Would you visit on me now
Another swan song
You’re never gone long
You build your prison
Then you wish it to the ground

The idle mind’s the vice that I find
Hard to kick
My heart’ll skip
And then I start to slip
The sense of melancholy
It creeps
And slowly crawling
It seeps
Into the innermost
Something’s always interposed
The fear of failure perhaps
The air of purpose I lack
My disposition is a ruinous affliction
I am inconsequential, I know
My very nature is rote
The fallibility
Futility
Track Name: Line to Die
Don’t you wanna feel like all the other people
When they’re swallowing their pills
And they all go fall asleep ‘til in the morning when they rise
And they all get back in line
And they all get back in line to die
Don’t you wanna love like all the other people
When they surface in their lust
And they sink into the deep ‘til there is nowhere left to hide
And they all get back in line
And they all get back in line to die

I am the one
The scum
The everlasting ill
I know the clouds are shrouds
Without a lining but still
I got a whole in my heart
That I’ve been dyin’ to fill
Ain’t nothin’ worked for me yet
Won’t stop me tryin’
Fuck it

Don’t you wanna live like all the other people
With the filth that they forgive
And the secrets that they keep, still they could never tell a lie
And they all get back in line
And they all get back in line to die
Don’t you wanna cry like all the other people
When they’re swallowing their pride
And they’re hungry so they eat ‘til there is nothing left inside
And they all get back in line
And they all get back in line to die

I am the one
The scum
The everlasting ill
I know that heaven’s a farce
Born of fatuity still
The fools among us believe
They’ll be relieved of their guilt
Ain’t nothin’ worked for them yet
Don’t stop ‘em tryin’ does it?

Don’t you wanna bleed like all the other people
For the freedom of your greed
It’s the beast that you will feed ‘til there is nothing left to buy
And they all get back in line
And they all get back in line to die

They were waiting in line to die
Waiting in line
Track Name: Weigh My Soul
Fire and ice
Fire and ice
These are the gods that made me
Pray if you like
Pray if you like
But nobody’s comin’ to save me

Are you gonna weigh my soul
Hold it there in your hands
Are you gonna let me fall
Through your fingers like sand

I was on the outside
Bottle full of bad news
Must’ve took a wrong turn
It doesn’t matter
Saw you in the stardust
You were lookin’ hard up
Talkin’ to the straw man
Torn and tattered

Are you gonna weigh my soul
Hold it there in your hands
Gild all the lilies with your fool’s gold
I’ll believe when I can

Heaven devoid
Heaven devoid
Who can I trust to forsake me
The devils are coiled
The devils are coiled
The snakes lie in wait in the cane reed

Are you gonna save my soul
Faults and all that I am
Are you gonna carry me home
Strike me down where I stand

Weighed and found wanting
Searching for something
Weighed and found wanting

I was on the backslide
Falling down the same hole
Bought myself a big gun
You can have it
Saw you on the frontlines
Shoutin’ at the sunrise
Talkin’ in your code tongue
I couldn’t crack it
Track Name: Monsters
I tend to run dry
Coming untied
I do the best that I can
Not to lie to my friends
I like the sunshine
Try to be positive
I say some dark things
But I’m not tryna be grim
Been spendin’ all day
Wishin’ you were around
Fuck your call back
You should’ve picked up
I’m goin’ blind here
I’m on overload
I’m under-impressed
I think I’ve run out of luck
I run my own game
Lose my own game
I pay the bills
So what if I’m a little behind
It’s not a contest
I make my own art
Nobody wants it but hey
I’ve got a lot on my mind

I was a young boy
Out in New Orleans
I met a girl I could love
I should’ve gave her a kiss
Out in the streetlight
I took my pass
I saw that look in her eye
The kind of look that you miss

I’m not a mean guy
But I’ve had them green eyes
When I look into the abyss
I feel my gaze is returned
I fight my monsters
I wonder what I’ve become
Perhaps a monster to some
Count it among my concerns
Don’t wanna get high
I just wanna be high
Throw on my dress shoes
And cut up a rug
I’ll be your workhorse
But I’m sleepin’ real late
I gave all my money up
To these leaches suckin’ my blood

I was a young boy
Hiding in a ravine
The fairest face I had seen
Was swimming deep in my mind
It’s childish stuff
But just to look was enough
I wrote your name down
At least a thousand times
