Track Name: Magistrate
WROTE A LETTER TO THE MAGISTRATE,
BARGAIN FOR YOUR SUPPLE LEATHER EH
SOFT WHITE PAINT AND LEMONADE
GENTLE RAINS AND BERRY STAINS
GROWING FROM THE DRIPS FALLING ON MY NOTE

A DRY CRACKED EARTH WILL BE RELIEVED
THE FIRST COOL BREATH THE FATHER BREATHES
THE WHITE ABYSS THE SKY THE CONCEIVES
A BACKDROP FIT FOR DYING LEAVES
DONT REGRET WHAT YOU BELIEVE HERE AFTER

CHURCH BELLS PIERCE AT DUSK AND EVE
CREATURES CROON FROM BALCONIES
GRAY SKIES CLOAK THE BARREN TREES
WOOLEN COATS HANG TO THERE KNEES
TENANTS SHAKE THE WEATHER FROM THEIR FEET

LILY DONS YOUR MELODY
IN SALTED AIR ROSE MEMORIES
SCENT LADDEN LETTER ADDRESSED TO ME
A PAGE TO KEEP MY MIND AT EASE
FRAGRANT WORDS THEY PAINT THE MILES BETWEEN US

BARTER FOR A CHARTER TO THE SEA
FARTHER FOR THE MARTYR THAN FOR ME
Track Name: Abel Cried Out
YOU DO IT ALL FOR NOTHING, JUST TO LOOK LIKE SOMETHING, HIDE THE HOLES IN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD
IT'S CATACLYSMIC, BUT YOU'RE OH SO REALISTIC, IT'S ALRIGHT IT'S ALRIGHT

FROM ATOP OUR TOWERS WE LOOKED ON WITH GLOWER AS THE RABBLE WAS MADE KNOWN BELOW
ALL THE FRUIT AND SPOILS, BOTH THE GRAINS AND THE OIL WITHERED UP BY THE BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS

ABEL CRIED OUT FROM A PUDDLE OF BLOOD, LOVE LOOKED DOWN AND SAW WHAT HAD BECOME OF ONE MAN A SON, ONE MAN A BROTHER, ONE MAN JUST LIKE ME

ON THE BANKS OF KNOWING NOT A LANTERN GLOWING AND YOUR EYES YOU'LL FIND ARE GROWING DIM
NOT A LIGHTHOUSE SHOWING CARVE YOUR WAY THROUGH THE OCEAN, THROW A STONE TO REMEMBER YOU WAKE

ABEL CRIED OUT FROM A PUDDLE OF BLOOD, LOVE LOOKED DOWN AND SAW WHAT HAD BECOME OF ONE MAN A SON, ONE MAN A BROTHER, ONE MAN JUST LIKE ME

I SWORE I WOULDN'T MISS IT, BUT THE RODE GOT TWISTED, AND THE DEVIL RAN IN FRONT OF MY EYES
NOW I LAY HERE NAKED WITH MY BACK TO THE PAVEMENT THANKING GOD FOR THE TIMES THAT CRIED

BUILT A MONUMENT ONLY TO CRUMBLE
VOICED MY SENTIMENT ONLY TO STUMBLE
BUILT A MONUMENT ONLY TO CRUMBLE
VOICED MY SENTIMENT ONLY TO STUMBLE
STONE MADE FOR TO CRUMBLE

STONE CRIED OUT FROM A PUDDLE OF BLOOD, LOVE LOOKED DOWN AND SAW WHAT HAD BECOME OF ONE MAN A SON, ONE MAN A BROTHER, ONE MAN JUST LIKE ME
ABEL CRIED OUT FROM A PUDDLE OF BLOOD, LOVE LOOKED DOWN AND SAW WHAT HAD BECOME OF ONE MAN A SON, ONE MAN A BROTHER, ONE MAN JUST LIKE ME
Track Name: So Far
So far
weve got a ways to go
So far
weve got a ways to go

She captured
a face shed seen only in her dreams
Perfectly vague
blurred beneath the copper’s tarnishing

He captured
a figure long forgotten, cold and shrouded in the blue
empty chairs empty tables and nothing left to lose

Perfectly plain
he said I need a place to rest and mending to my shoes
Perfectly pained
she whispered to window and said I need you too

How many miles?
How many miles?
How many miles?
How many miles?
How many miles do your tracks span in the snow?

So long
the winters in my memories never seemed so cold
and I remember down on henry we were dancing on the floor

So long
old familiar footsteps although slower still the same
whether in the snow ten years ago or fresh in from the rain

So strange
how silent sparks of wonder end as all consuming flames
yet like words on printed pages our hands remain the same

So far
weve got a way to go

How many miles?
How many miles?
How many miles?
How many miles?
How many miles?
How many miles?
Track Name: Can't See Through You
I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU
I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU
I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU, THROUGH YOU, THROUGH YOU
I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU

YOU DO IT ALL FOR NOTHING
JUST TO LOOK LIKE SOMETHING
JUST TO LOOK LIKE SOMETHING
WHAT HAVE WE LEFT TO HIDE

EVEN I REMEMBER
SEEING FOG ON THE WINDOW
WHATS IT LIKE IN THE WINDOW
WHATS IT LIKE ON THE OTHER SIDE

AND BY THE BREAK OF MORNING
YOU MAY SEE ME COMING
YOU MAY SEE ME COMING
THERES SOMETHING IVE LEFT BEHIND

AND BY THE BREAK OF MORNING
YOU MAY SEE ME COMING
YOU MAY SEE ME COMING
THERES SOMETHING IVE LEFT BEHIND

I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU
I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU, THROUGH YOU, THROUGH YOU

I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU
I CANT SEE THROUGH YOU, THROUGH YOU, THROUGH YOU


AND FOR THE WAY YOU LEFT ME
ON THE BANKS OF KNOWING
WHEN SAW THIS GROWING
SAW THE COLORS YOU SEE WHEN YOURE BLIND

I MIGHT HAVE SEARCHED FOREVER
NEVER KNOWN YOU BETTER
NEVER KNOW YOU BETTER
TELL ME WHAT DID YOU HAVE IN MIND

I CAN SEE YOU BLUFFING
I CANT WAIT FOR NOTHING
I WONT WAIT FOR NOTHING
THANKS FOR THE TIME


FOR THE LIFE OF ME I CANT SEE,
I CANT SEE
WHATS GOING ON
Track Name: Little Glass Jars
Little glass jars from foot-hilled farms,
not so far from home

Dust lay still on the window sill,
the air is still as stone

The daughters dove
perched above
the ivory crested hollow

The amber glow
from old panes show,
their garden sanctuary

Afternoon tea on a black moonless night
his failing eyes gray and pine for the light
Perhaps in the morning he’ll regain our sight


The ground here is marred by the heel of your boot
The path growing in on the spring blossoms bloom

Your honey hair puddles on your shoulders so fair
The window’s lonely with two empty chairs

We'll hold like the oak that freckles this land
Token of gold that embraces your hand.
Track Name: Halloween Song
HERE TAKE THIS FUR AND WEAR IT
I'LL BE THE SPOOKY PARROT
YOU CAN BE THE BEAR
LET'S GO OUT A SEE WHAT THIS NIGHT CAN BE

COME, LOOK AT ALL THE CREATURES
HERDS, JUNGLE CATS, AND CREEPERS
LOOK WE'RE JUST LIKE THEM
WITH CANDY OFFERINGS FOR THE JUNGLE KING

YOU SAY THIS ISN'T YOUR AVERAGE PARTY BUT YOU SWEAR YOU'RE INTO IT CAUSE ALL THE ANIMALS ARE HAVING FUN
YOU SAY THIS ISN'T YOUR AVERAGE PARTY BUT YOU SWEAR YOU'RE INTO IT CAUSE ALL THE ANIMALS ARE HAVING FUN

COME ON, LETS GET OUT OF HERE
DOOM NEVER SEEMED SO NEAR
WE'RE RUNNING THROUGH THE TREES
WON'T STOP TIL WE REACH
OUR HOUSE, OUR TRICK OR TREAT

YOU SAY THIS ISN'T YOUR AVERAGE PARTY BUT YOU SWEAR YOU'RE INTO IT CAUSE ALL THE ANIMALS ARE HAVING FUN
YOU SAY THIS ISN'T YOUR AVERAGE PARTY BUT YOU SWEAR YOU'RE INTO IT CAUSE ALL THE ANIMALS ARE HAVING FUN
Track Name: Running
come on my bonny
come on my girl
wev’e got miles to run, lets not wait on the world
in a wild winded frenzy
we lead the parade
with our collars to the sun, and our boot heels toward yesterday

so we keep
running, running, running, running, running, running, running
ah ah ah

east from virginia
he rode into to town
dolling out cash to the crooks and the clowns
he knelt down to greet me
he offered his hand
but his oath is as fleeting as words in the sand


so we keep
running, running, running, running, running, running, running
ah ah ah
so we keep
running, running, running, running, running, running, running
ah ah ah

Maybe
If we just lay here
Lately
the messenger bids to come
Stay near
loneliness plagues here
Stay dear
hold, the canopy keeps out the cold, from our home, the wind blows, ooohh

i paint you a picture
you sing me a tune
while surveying your skin from under in the moon

watching the stars
as they fall into place
each one a story quilted in space

I smell your hair
our fingers embrace
and you feel my shoulder
pressed into your face

so we keep
running, running, running, running, running, running, running
ah ah ah
so we keep
running, running, running, running, running, running, running
ah ah ah
Track Name: Widows
WHEN THE WIDOW DIED YOU SAID, "I AM SURPRISED",
BUT I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT YOU DESPISED HER LIFE

AND IN THE END OF TIME WE ALL STOOD IN LINE,
WE LAUGHED AND CRACKED ABOUT OUR FORMER LIVES

THESE SPIT UP SONGS OF MINE, ANOTHER WORTHLESS RHYME
ARE TIGHTLY SEALED AND SOAKING IN THE BRINE

YOU CURSED THE FAMILY LINE WITH YOUR UNFORGIVING SMILE
THE BLIND GOTTA LEAD THE BLIND EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE

AE BEE CEA DEE BAMBOO
AE BEE CEA DEE BAMBOO
AE BEE CEA DEE BAMBOO

DUST WILL STILL GO ON, I CAN SEE FOR MILES AROUND
DUST WILL STILL GO ON, I CAN SEE FOR MILES
AROUND, AROUND, AROUND, AROUND....

AND IF I'M STILL ALIVE, AND IF YOU'RE DOWN TO JIVE
HERE IT IS THE LAST OF THE GOODBOY CRIES

AND IF I'M STILL ALIVE, AND IF YOU'RE DOWN TO JIVE
HERE IT IS THE LAST OF THE GOODBOY CRIES

LIKE A MORNING BRIDE, RISING WITH THE TIDE
SIDE BY SIDE WE TRIED AND TRIED AND TRIED
Track Name: Everybody Knows I Love You
Stay here, you don't have to be alone with me now
Whisper, you don't have to hold your breath in this house
Tread near, we've all grown up and look at us talking now

I will stop at nothing til everybody knows I love

Feel me move closer and I'll tell you of gold inside
Sit here, close your eyes resign and I'll show you how
Paint me the colors that you see when you rest your eyes

I will stop at nothing til everybody knows I love you
I will stop at nothing til everybody knows I love you
I will stop at nothing til everybody knows I love you
I will stop at nothing til everybody knows I love you
