Track Name: The Speakers are Bleeding
Ohhhhhhh
Never let me go

Woke up from a dream where the moon fell to the ground
Inside a hotel room that was burning down

There's a man walking north to a town he came from
Down a highway, flooded from the burning sun

Twenty million churches, their arms waving in the air
And a seething prostitute who said she once had a care

And all the little children they all dance in the grass
Inside the nation that would be the last

There ain't gonna be no kings, no wine to sit and sip
When the heroes run like rats from a ship

Woke up this morning and I wished
For the sight of your eyes and a kiss

Don't know how you feel but with the moon falling down
I'd like to spend the rest of my life in your room

Eat your pumpkin pie
It's Halloween outside and you got something in your eye

Pretty girl across the room
Look at me and ignore all my wounds

In a bathroom stall
You were the prettiest of them all
Talked about romance movies
And the ones I might like

I lied about all the words
That I told your friend
You're still on my mind
That train never left

And everything I needed
Is gonna go away
And everything I wanted
Will never stay
It's like a Halloween costume
It's just pretend
Every good thing must come to an end
Track Name: In The Morning
I once heard it said
Love is the last thing in your head, when you wake up
Or the first thing you greet before you go to bed

Well it's been two years since we last really talked
I had to take it out of myself
With some pliers

In the morning
Do you think of me
Cause I think of you

And all those frozen pines outside
Remind me of a time when I first saw you
All those many years ago

And all those years ago, when I first saw your face
I studied every line and place
Where the rain seeped out

I was a fool for you, you know I left tracks in the snow
For you to follow
But you never followed

Now I look in your eyes, I see a face that I've never seen.
You look at me like someone to keep you warm by the fire
When it's freezing outside
Track Name: Songbird
Oh my songbird
I hang on every word
And the years go by so fast, when you know you'll always be last

Oh my blackbird
Have you heard
All them words you said
And is your love really dead

I waited for you ten year long
Now I'm waiting again as the years roll on
The hour glass has split and cracked
And the sand pours out and there's no going back
Track Name: The Contender
The luckiest thing you could do
Is find someone as crazy as you
To cook you soup when you're feeling ill

Could of been Napoleon in Russia
With no one to love you
But I put my guns in the ground

Could of been somebody, could of been a contender
Rather stay in your arms and be pretender

I could of climbed a mountain, could of swam the seven seas
Rather stick around than have you give up on me

Could of been a legend, could of broken a million hearts
The only heart I want lies inside your parts

Could of been like Julius Caesar
I could of came saw and conquered
But an empire left too little time

Could rode out with Jesse
Just to shoot him in the back
But I recall a wife crying over his corpse

Could of died out in Eden
Could of been friends with Christopher McCandless
But I had Eden in your eyes

Could of sail of to new lands
But the only true lands
Were the ones where you're waiting up for me
Track Name: Love Shyness
Someone's got a secret to tell to you
Don't worry baby ain't nothing brand new
Ain't gonna wait around for you

Laid my heart out on a plate to serve to you
But it got ignored baby ain't nothin' brand new
Can you keep me quiet
(From staying up all night)

Got a bad disease inside my bones
Gonna keep me baby, all alone
Got it from eyes like yours
(And they walked away)

Looking for a pair of brown eyes
To wrap my heart around
It looks now that there is no place
To call my home with a pretty face

Can't let you in on a winter night
Cause it was you who set me on this plight
Can't find a place to set my feet
Cause every place ends up in defeat

Every curling smile is a trap
Every present waiting to unwrap
Filled up with things that need and want
Things like a tomb you know will haunt

And what is this weakness in my heart
Why does it feel like the biggest part
My weak kindness from men who have none
And with this kindness I feel like the weakest one

Know this my little dear
That sound that's ringing in your ear
Is it hammering in your mind
That gift you gave away
(To be kind)

Walk away from yourself
Go and take your refuge
Hide in under the covers
Of all your would be lovers

Seeing you and me
It always seemed like destiny
Don't let it go
Go bury it under the snow
Track Name: March 21, 1990
The yellow school bus
Disappearing before
The pain would be coming
The pain would be gone

A piece of bailing twine
And a stool to stand on
Left you there in that cold room
At the top of the barn

There brother would find you
Blue lips and blue face
Tried to see in you then
All of your lost grace

Oh we try to get by
But sometimes we just can't

Oh the sound how it rung out
Down the school corridors
Oh the sound how it stung me
In my heart so impure

I watched them carry her like a baby
From the funeral home
And her legs how they buckled
As her baby grew cold

And he once was my father
Although not by blood
And he poured down the liquor
To drown out all the pain

And he once was my best friend
And he looked me in the face
He said he loved you so much
I said nothing in return
Track Name: I-75
I see all the cars
Passing like diamonds
Ones red, ones white

Down I-75
From Northern Ohio
Just to see your face

Pillow in the back seat
Broken and tired
Long time till I see you again

You live down I-75
Two hours away from me
I'd drive every day to you

Roadsigns like stars
Off in the distance
Night falls over my eyes

But off in that distance
The gem city
Shines just like Heaven's gate

Take me now
I scream out to it
God I hope one day it keeps me warm

Like your arms...
Track Name: Details of the War
All the broke down cars and stars of Avalon
Or was it Babylon

And submarines stuck at the bottom of the sea
Forever eating tangerines

A thousand baby photos flying through my door
Land on my panel floor

She was born again with that apple pie
In her eye

I asked her her name and then she said goodbye
Said we all will die

Fires the sprung out from the sides of navy fleets
Come out into the streets

And bombs exploding just outside my window
I think it's time to go

And giant turtles living in some foreign lake
Dying in our wake

A soldier sits outside my windowsill
Do they come to kill

A radio broadcasting on my kitchen floor
Told us of the war

Planes that fall to earth just like fallen Gods
Do we ever have the odds

And dreams I had when I was awake
Wither and escape
Track Name: Living at the Same Time
Whoa! She's been abused
And her hearts been used
Not by the words that she says
But by a lack thereof

And she's got nothing on you
And everything that you do
But is it all in my head
And is this love really dead

I wish that I knew
Why we do the things we do
And is it all for you
Or is it all for her

You can look at a map for days kid it ain't gonna take you anywhere
Shine your shoes on Monday, on Tuesday you comb your hair
Might as well stick your finger in the air
Walk down the highway, like you haven't got a care

And kings and philosophers we're putting you up on trial
For all the words that you said and all the promises you tossed on the pile
We're putting you down in the pile
Where you won't be able to hide for quite awhile

And you pull your Kerouac routine
For all the pretty girls in the scene
Hoping they'd give up all they'd ever been
Like you're nothing they'd ever seen

Step inside of your childhood home
In through the doorway who's dreams won't leave you alone
Underneath the tables that have given away to rust
Look at the family portraits whose lines have turned away to dust

Down aching halls shivering with cold
Of memories long past that have given away to mold
Monsters in the basement and the trolls you saw out in the trees
The color of the lawn, covered in falls leaves

The house now empty stands like a barren shell
Of all the memories and moments it could tell
If only it opened its vast and empty self
Of all the treasures it had and we held up upon its shelf

Now it moves away like a warm summer breeze
Moving into winter with an Indian Summer tease
Such small and precious things hang there in my mind
Like the apple on the tree, hanging there in time

And pass away as distant lights in dark
To the far off sound of a buried dogs bark
So we move now from our childhood home
Down a long wide trail that we now must roam alone

I, I don't believe in fairy tales
But I believe in kindness
And the power of words
And the sharpness of knives
I don't know how I feel
Or if I believe in Jesus Christ
But I, I believe in people
Yeah everyone, yeah everyone

Hold it down
I see them lights went out
Over that dark one
And all we got is dumber

Bring in the love
Oh fuck it, bring in the guns
Sang that when I was 15
Though I must admit
Seems more important now
Now that I know what it means
Track Name: Earth's Only Satellite
You ever seen the moon so round and fat
Sitting on your windowsill like a cat
I'd love to see the moon from your room

And if life is but to die
Then why even try
The cynics walking out the back door

Earth's only satellite
Is lonely tonight

And if she should ever leave
Like the leaves on a tree
I know that spring would bring her back again

And just like the sun
That falls down at ten
It's bound to come on back again
