Apart 04:08
There's blue above and brown below Be still my heart and after glow Time will tell, it just won’t show The chilling pace at which we’ve grown…. Like broken bones and rusted lines A voice that’s shot and traffic fines The rage that’s age, the great decline The gift of birth, a crooked spine Wander here, wander there Wonder why, disappear Into the fog, kiss the clear Dry your lips, burn your tears What's blue above is rot below What beats in time will cease in flow Stories fold and no one knows How those so close could ever grow…. Apart...

Christine 05:05
Like the fate of a flower Or the oceans pounding roar We’re wandering foot soldiers Here in life trying to score Me, I’m too late for the railroad Babe I don’t dig machines I’m just a lonely folk singer Caught up in you, Christine Be it the heat of suggestion Or the fear on my brow I’m told time waits for no one I say our time is now ‘Cuz I've walked through the valley Babe I’ve trudged along the shores I’ve been rolled in some alleys When I lost count of the pours But for all that is certain.... See, I’m far, far from green It’s when the light hits your eyes And I melt, Christine Be it the heat of suggestion Or the fear on my brow I’m told time waits for no one I say our time is now So lay me down slowly For I’m new to this scene All I have are my wants And I tend not to dream

Through times so bright and so dark Over letters from the heart Through songs, our bond, it thrived Through jokes, through tears In remembrance of the years We swore that we’d drink the well dry Now our time has reached the end I’ll turn my back to your wind I won’t drink with you again Baby, goodbye There’s pain, there’s doubt I fear time’s running out Some say our worlds did collide But I’ve got my life, got my dream Time to bow out of this scene For I’ve stared down your storm with just one eye Now our time has reached the end I’ll turn my back to your wind I won’t drink with you again Baby, goodbye All the good times they will last They’ll just live in the past Fare-thee-well it’s been a blast Baby, goodbye For our time has reached the end I’ll turn my back to your wind I won’t drink to you again Baby, goodbye

Sunk In Deep 03:56
She told me she thought I was funny She told me I was kind She didn’t care I had no money She said she really dug my mind She told me once I left her speechless One time even gazing at the stars She said she loved our conversations While her top-forty shit teared through the car Well it’s time I see, she sunk deep into me She sunk deep into me every time She opened her mouth, or kicked me off her couch So I’m taking you, taking your love, it’s taking time She hinted I’m in, then came on slowly Well I played my part, and I threw it all to chance She’d charm the devil unto holy Then she'd rob the bastard of all his evil plans. Well it’s time I see, she sunk deep into me She sunk deep into me every time That she opened up her mouth, or kicked me off her couch So I’m taking you, taking your love, it’s taking time

I had a dream about candied bridges, Soup kitchens, and Marlboro Reds And I was friends with Sam Houston, Dave and Goliath, and Johnny Bench You had drinks with Pete Seeger In Rosarito as the sun went down And there we'd sing songs by John Lennon, Bob Dylan, and Bozo the Clown Strange how we find out, it’s love that’s what matters No point in goin’ it alone Some say they’ve realized it’s chains and mad hatters And sweet talkin’ rhymes between the deaf and the blind ‘round a hole I painted this town with no companion On a wild stallion wearin’ a thorny crown You’d been to the top of the highest mountain, Drank from a whiskey fountain, and you ain’t never looked down We saw the fall of the greatest hero Who was labeled a zero in the aftermath And we saw the rise of Joe criminal And his ceremonial spreading of ash Strange how we find out, it’s love that’s what matters No point in goin’ it alone Some say they’ve realized it’s chains and mad hatters And sweet talkin’ rhymes between the deaf and the blind ‘round a hole So damn long, I wanted you so damn long Wanted you so damn long, I wanted you so So damn long, I wanted you so damn long Wanted you so damn long, I wanted you so

Save A Place 04:29
I picked you up from off the mantle And I could feel you from down the hall Introduced among the candles We wept and curled up in a ball Save, save a place Save a place for us to fill I spent my days walking backwards And all that time I’m thinking I’m right But you came along and soaked up my sadness You made damn sure my eyes were wide Save, save a place Save a place for us to fill Save, save a place Save a place among this thrill I’ll show you in a light that’s bright and famous Famous for faith and being true You sussed me out while I was aimless Now I pledge myself to you Save, save a place Save a place for us to fill Save, save a place Save a place among this thrill Save, save a place (saving it up sometime) Save a place, I hope you will

Dying Day 05:55
Some roadside pride took twenty-five lives That's when it all began The dust you could chew while the shrapnel flew Blowin' arms from their trusty hands The innocents screamed for civilian means While the armor made its stand Planes would fly by poking holes in the sky Leaking prayer on the dead and damned This is an ode.... To their dying day The sun went down in a Jersey town 'round the time the cameras rolled A hard working man was beat from his tan His body laid bloodied and cold It was 7:17 at the hospital scene When the actress got too bold She clipped several hundred clams from the soul of his pants Robbed of dignity, life, and gold This is an ode... To his dying day A sky roaming plane shot through the rain Crashed in the Karachi hills Survivors were few from one-fifty-two The rescuers braved the chill The trip had been grand, the plane was to land It was only minutes away But the weather turned mean, the clouds lost their sheen The airbus and faithful lay slain Who's to blame?... For their Dying Day Ain't it a shame.... A Massachusetts man took his wife in his hands You can guess what happened from there Their child looked on sensing something was wrong Mom's blood trickled down the stairs This childhood friends' in a concrete pen His family ain't no more Yet the scriptures all say if you kill you must pay No matter angel, sinner, or whore This is an ode... To their dying day The story's been told... Some roadside pride took twenty-five lives That's when it all began...

Annie 03:09
Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise Don’t blind your eyes again Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise To criticize and cringe The no holding all scolding is starting to wane Loves absence is wearing me thin Seems I lent out my heart to a bag full of veins Tapped dry by a deep thirst for sin Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise Don’t blind your eyes again Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise To criticize and cringe Amongst the gadgets and gizmos, bad feet and truckloads Of fearless, faithless clowns Who told the tipsy and the merry to steer clear of your ferry 'cuz the anchor was too light to drown Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise Don’t blind your eyes again Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise To criticize and cringe Annie, I’d never hurt you I want you to call out my name Annie, I swear I love you, girl I forget that you're partially insane I’m charred, you’re chiseled, you’re fried, I’ve fizzled Sanctity lies in the ground I beg, you borrow. Can I see you tomorrow? Annie, please stick around Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise Don’t blind your eyes again Wake up sweet Annie, it’s time to rise To criticize and cringe Don't criticize me!

Fools Parade 04:34
Alone with the shadows, they’re giving me the eye Sawin’ my nerves with the dullest blade Trapped behind a window where the lead distorts the light And the ghost of rumor screams down the alley way In the fools parade the marchers cry They cry out “have you no shame?” They’re a violent wonder, but you’re poison to the eye And this slate’s been beat to hell where the truth resides Fearless is desire despite the venom in the air And the heat it brings would singe the heart of all For the devil lurks in passion, your sheets they are his skin Your moan the twisted ring of his evil call In the fools parade the marchers cry They cry out “have you no shame?” They’re a violent wonder, but you’re poison to the eye, And this slate’s been beat to hell where the truth resides Afraid to look behind me at the carnage on my trail All I hoped to reach was higher ground And the ghosts that stand before me, cast your shadow no more For the rumor fell like the truth amidst a wounded wail In the fools parade the marchers cry They cry out “have you no shame?” They're a violent wonder, but you're poison to the eye, And this slate’s been beat to hell, where the truth resides You're the violent wonder, you're the poison to my eye And this slate's been blown to hell Hell...

Her river flows on, it’ll carry me ‘till dawn Daylight hits, and it’s my turn to walk away I got the sun in my eyes, south wind steering me right I’ll take a page from the small town way, steal me somebody’s wife ...and damned I’ll be...all the way Whiskey still on my brain, I hop the last train And pray to God I end up in a place I can stay So won’t you come home with me, and let me do as I please Again come the daybreak, and I’m already out on the street Damned I’ll be Damned I’ll be Damned I’ll be All the way Pray for the afternoon pour, if it would only rain more The puddle in which I’m standing in, is way too clean for me to taste The reflection at my feet, well I’m told it’s me A cheap hotel and a bar stool in hell, might make this whole mess complete Damned I’ll be Damned I’ll be Damned I’ll be All the way
