Track Name: Long Ago (No Goodbye)
Do you remember that day?
I say it’s lonely in a way
I miss the times that we would play

And now you’re so far away
If I could see you I’d say
If you were here I would want you to stay

Long ago
How could I know?
I didn’t want my feelings to show
But since you’re gone, it’s all wrong
That’s why I’ll never say goodbye
No goodbye
Track Name: Table Girl
She goes wherever she wants to go
Out on the town, I know
Angel of rock and roll

I been missing the black and white
Yeah, somethin’ ain’t feelin’ right
I get stuck between high and low

Make up my mind, I’m in a bind, baby, uh-oh
Give me just one look and let me know

She fakes, I don’t have to wait
The cool she generates
Has got me in disarray

Give me the time, I’ll make you mine, time only knows
I can’t go, I can’t go on alone

Oh the light is shining all around me now
And the fear of flying has been cured somehow
And I don’t know if I’m ever gonna come back down

Well the sidewalk snakes
Shady eyes cuz they can’t crack wise
Just crawl away
They don’t ask to come
Prowl
Get you somewhere safe tonight
And I might stay
Nowhere else to run
One last seat in the back room now...

I went out over the sea
She was way outside of me
Guess it just wasn’t meant to be

Throw me a line, you might find I’m the one
Go your way, I’ll go mine when it’s done

Oh the light is shining all around me now
And the fear of flying has been cured somehow
Yeah the light is shining all around me now
And the fear of flying has been cured somehow
And I don’t know if I’m ever gonna come back down
Come back down
Come back down
Come back down...
Track Name: Bored And Blue
Some days back we found ourselves alone
Nights we once shared we now call our own

I’m not feelin’ like you
I’m too bored and blue
To play this old sad song through

Here and there I cared but that’s all gone
Now and then is when I know I’m wrong

I’m not feelin’ like you
I’m too bored and blue
To fall down and play your fool

There’s light in the room
It’s darkening soon
The shadows will trick and disguise
Yeah I might get weak
At moments like these
If it weren’t for the sun in my eyes

No hard feelings, no more broken hearts
No more patchin’ up what’s torn apart

I’m not feelin’ like you
I’m too bored and blue
To harbor ill will towards you
Track Name: The City Is Filled With A Sound
One eye on the windowed wall, it’s a murderous season
Children sighing in the hall at the man with the reason
To live his days beneath the haze of thinking he’ll never get out

Too much time, we’re on the run, does the road lead anywhere?
Sitting sleepy in the sun, there’s a spider in your hair
It tumbles down onto the ground, a wind blows in from the south

The summer air is thick
The streets are full of crowds
The bomb begins to tick
The city is filled with a sound

Three times charmed, I guess it’s luck, or the way things are goin’
When it breaks the other way I have no way of knowin’
Meantime, chase the rats and race, I care not what they’re about

The winter here is king
The faces all look down
The note is hard to sing
The city is filled with a sound

The spring may never come
The people move around
The lonely voices hum
The city is filled with a sound

For you a word to live by, oh it’s love, pure and easy
I can’t help but plagiarize what’s been used all to pieces
If it’s not late I’ll touch your face, let a smile come to your mouth

One eye on the windowed wall
Too much time, we’re on the run
Three times charmed, I guess it’s luck
For you a word to live by, oh it’s love...
Track Name: Grackles
Hellos to swell old faces in the country
Goodbyes to pies in the sky
End of the rope he hopes
He’s seen enough to know now that the well’s run dry

Cuz some dreams in the end are just dreams
And they fade away

Yeah he’s comin’ back today
Been a long time away
Don’t let him go
The bad just takes its toll

And never ever let him feed the grackles again

Props to pops and hurrah to ma
The golden boy returns
Not much to show he knows
So the story goes, had a pile and watched it burn

Cuz some dreams are not all that they seem
And they just don’t pay

But he’s comin’ back today
And this time he’ll stay
Keep him close to home
And love him as your own

And promise not to leave him with the grackles okay?

It’s a long fall from the high, been a strange ride
Wild-eyed and full of pride, can’t deny the sickness that’s inside
In a corner of your mind we’re the same, people never change
I’m sorry but not ashamed, can’t explain the way the plague came
From right out of the sky, like a black rain
You know only the strong remain...until it’s time for them to feed again

Oh he’s comin’ back today
And for his troubled soul we pray
If you think he’s feelin’ low
And your fear and paranoia grow

Just try to nevermind the grackles outside
Just try to nevermind the grackles outside
Just try to nevermind the grackles outside
Just try to nevermind the grackles outside
Track Name: Madrona
Death in bloom
Heavy sky
Lesser trail
Love in a fading light
Act like you don’t know the time
Sleepwalk past the stars at night

Leaving soon
Teary-eyed
Never fail
Go on with all your might
Look the devil in the eye
Do your best, it’s hard, but try
Go down by your heart and know it’s alright

Take what I know
Improve on it as you go
Restrain, refrain, rewind, refine
Rain walks and alley rides around your old hometown
Moonrise, sundown now

And when I’m gone
Don’t cry, nothing’s wrong
You’re where you belong

Act like you don’t know the time
Sleepwalk past the stars at night
Look the devil in the eye
Do your best, it’s hard, but try
Go down by your heart and know it’s alright
Go down by your heart and know it’s alright...
...that it’s alright
Yeah it’s alright sweet baby
Yeah it’s alright little girl
Yeah it’s alright my darling
Yeah it’s alright in the world
Yeah it’s alright in the world
Yeah it’s alright...
Track Name: Daddy Was A Deadbeat
Our old dog quit breathin’
Mama won’t stop grievin’
Pa left home and Ma ain’t got a job to pay the rent
Lately I been thinkin’
Mostly up late drinkin’
Time to check out, make it up and dream, time to pretend

Ain’t got the guts or guns to live like this just to put it down
Don’t pass away, nobody’d hear, you’d go without a sound
Man comes this far, he owes it to his bones just to hang around

Sirens out on Main Street
Singin’ ‘Daddy was a deadbeat’
Times I wonder why it is and was it meant to be?

Ain’t got the wish or will to end up on this side of town
Don’t tell a soul, nobody’d know, no better time than now
There’s things in life I can’t control but I can do without

Maybe I just, maybe I just don’t know what’s real
Maybe I think too much to feel
If losing’s taught me anything, it’s find the silver line
a la the whisper in the pines
The dirty dimes, the petty crimes
Guilty or not, we do our time

Sirens out on Main Street
Singin’ ‘Daddy was a deadbeat’
Times I wonder why it is and was it meant to be?

Ain’t got the wish or will to end up on this side of town
Don’t tell a soul, nobody’d know, no better time than now
There’s things in life I can’t control but I can do without
Do without
Do without
Do without...
Track Name: No Words
No words could say what I could not relate
When you were dying miles away
In need of rescue, hey
No birds had flown outside your window that day
Pretty blue eyes fade to gray

A love inside denied
Oh you had to self-crucify
To survive
No surprise

No smile could do any justice to
The sad-eyed dog they tied you to
When you drew your straw, hey
No style could fool, yeah well I think I knew you
Flew your colors loud and true

A love inside denied
Oh you had to self-crucify
To get by
Stay alive

All the good ones go away
Track Name: Once In A Little While
I can’t tell
Up is down is because why
I think I fell
For a jade like you

On the sly
So it’s not obvious to you
Once in a little while
I might get better

Tough to sell
Easy buy when I get knocked down
Heaven knows it's hell
But I can, so I do

Reasons why
They’re not gonna mean much to you
Once in a little while
I can do some good harm

And I can see straight and kill like a poison arrow
Oh it just feels great, what a thrill, I’ll prob’ly do it again
Well no one beats fate until they come back from the reaper’s door

There’s nothing out there, no fear, I’m here
Time’s just a mask that God wears, who cares
Track Name: Leave June Alone
Right by the rule
Don’t talk to strangers when they want to talk to you
Left after school
The victimizers, well they just want to be cool
Cool...
Self-centered girl, her words betray what her voice can mean only

Leave June alone, she can’t hurt you if she stays home
Don’t call her name, nevermind her when she wants to play her game
Keep walking, keep talking to the rain
Don’t let her change you
Change you...

...into somebody you can’t trust
Don’t wanna be like one of us
When things don’t go your way
Is it enough to make you wanna freak out?

Wrong to rely
On any friends you thought you had in junior high
Hard to deny
She hypnotizes with a face that seems to cry
Cry...
Mad little world, your choice betrays what your heart must want only

Leave June alone, she can’t hurt you if she stays home
Don’t call her name, nevermind her when she wants to play her game
Keep walking, keep talking to the rain
Don’t let her change you
Change you...
Track Name: What's In Store And What's Left Behind
You made your way across this country all on your own
A slow rollin’ stone
Lookin’ for home

You found her in a bar and she was all that you’d missed
A smile and a kiss
And everything fit
Your mind

What’s in store and what’s left behind

You made your livin’ diggin’ ditches all over town
Hardly put that shovel down
Kept your both feet on the ground

You won a few and you lost some too and the days turned to years
Your buddies and your beers
Eased all of your tears
When she died

What’s in store and what’s left behind

Now you’re livin’ lonesome in a home that’s not your own
It might be time to roam
To pick things up and go
And find a sign

What’s in store and what’s left behind
Life’s in vain and love’s on the line
What’s in store and what’s left behind...
Track Name: Laid & Buried
Minding the mood
Killing the time or I’d be the one dead
Hiding the keys
To all the doors to the rooms in my head

I’ve got places, I won’t linger there

Knuckle it down
Struggle to follow the map I made up
Hustle along
Jealous suspicious pride and distrust

One lost soul with visions of despair

Love runs cold and rivers run dry
Built to last and born to die
Laid in stone and buried alive

Road leads beyond
Over the fields but I’m not going back
Beautiful wreck
Stranded somewhere off a half-beaten track

Keep it to yourself, it’s not my prayer

Love runs cold and rivers run dry
Built to last and born to die
Laid in stone and buried alive
Track Name: Hills Of Home
You gotta write it in blood red
Spring green
The blue hills of home
I think I heard what the wind said
Come clean
Your free will is gone

My love for you grows and my spirit it knows, and severs
All I can sing of my soul is the word ‘forever’

You gotta pay it in heartache
Nine lives
The bird on the floor
I tend to stick to my old ways
But this time
It means somethin’ more

As long as the sun shines, no rain will bring bitter feelings
So long as you’re mine, I won’t waste time disbelieving
And miss the bigger meaning

Too many times I’ve been broke, beat, and blind
A lot of my days unwind
With that old fear
Baby promise that you’ll stay here...

Don’t try to tell me it’s too late
No time
I don’t wanna hear
All of the things you’d never say
But don’t hide
You can’t disappear

I’ll always remember the good times, we should, it’s better
Than hanging onto the sad lines we sang together

You gotta write it in blood red
Spring green
The blue hills of home
The blue hills of home
The blue hills of home...
Track Name: Lyin'
Lyin’, stealin’
Chasin’ that taste of sin
With a cheap drink on me
And a sad joke for free
Hey baby don’t you recognize your old boy?
I’m asleep out in the yard again
Dead days and black highways and freezin’ nights
And a moon so bright
That’s you, when I see through

Fallin’, cheatin’
Wastin’ what I have been
Workin’ hard to be tired
Get paid or get fired
Hey there baby won’t you put on your best smile?
It’s the one you used to use on me
Oh jeez, oh please pretty please, I see the light
Make a wrong go right
Like you do

But mean it
Gotta feel it
No bullshit
I’ll call it
If you’re lyin’
If you’re lyin’
If you’re lyin’
