Track Name: Like A Drum
Want if I want if I want you any more
like a drum burst a drum
I would burst just like a drum

Lead can you down can you lead me down the road
place me to take me to take me to a quiet place

Lost am I lost among the crowd
face the crowd among like a black shroud
Track Name: Steam
Like steam upon the glass
in spite of all that's passed
what haunts us now is a
haunts us now is a

I hear the undertow
that pulls from what we know
and falls upon the shore
of what we can endure

Looking out your backseat window
taking everything in sight
looking out your backseat window
moving faster than you'd like

Like simple moments can
slip through unnoticed hands
and jealousy unwinds
to fall among the pines

Not another

I think I've lost my depth
and now all I've got left
is stupid honesty
'bout things that matter to me
Like heavy paychecks cashed
and rolling hills far back
as any eye can see
though you know
it's just me
And where are all my friends
way back from summerland
we used to hold up the night
on our sun tanned backs
but one by one we go
to solemn futures bold
our mother's holding their breath
I miss my dog to death

Gone the empty room
Ever more a tomb
And we are are fast asleep
we are fast asleep

Like when the evening fell,
us under summer's spell
and how we turned to stone
we were looking out upon-

Haven't we given up
Track Name: Burn Me Down
You
you burn me down
like that old house
you burn me down
to the ground

I
I tumble slow
like all the cards
that ever stacked
I fall apart

You can't run away it seems
from what goes flying through your dreams
and memories you long neglected
come upon you unexpected
and tired I search for the hand
to have and hold at my demand
but she is nowhere to be seen and I'm lost

You
you ran me down
as on a plain
were I the prey
you ran me down

We
We fade light like
into the evening
we fade like light
tonight

I can't follow you my dear
into that void that we both fear
where silence is the balance held
and though you cry you make no sound
oh I'll go first while fast asleep,
tow away with all the years
and find a place to wait for you to come
Track Name: Please Don't
Why do you run from me
where do you go all day
why don't you stay

You got me crazy now
down on my hands and knees
I'm begging please

Oh all the places I've laid my head down
now I recall so few
of all the guys (who) tried to hold me back
no one's as bad as you

Please don't touch me there

I lose my head sometimes
forget what's wrong or right
don't leave tonight

You got me crazy now
down on my hands and knees
I'm begging please
Track Name: In the Morning
Sorry piano that's never been played
sits alone in a room by the stairs
oh would we go in there and give it a chance
if the walls hadn't been made of glass

who will hold you
in the morning I'll call you
who will stay with you
in the morning I'll want you

then it's curtains
Track Name: Hole In My Heart
I know
that i've been callous
foolish
Cold
but now I can see it
feel it

Me with a hole in my heart
but it wasn't there from the start
I'd trade it for yours in a downbeat
and shuffle away to sleep

No one
leaves with their hands clean
unseen
try as you may
some things don't fade away
though we pray

Me with a hole in my heart
but it wasn't there from the start
I'd trade it for yours in a downbeat
and shuffle away to sleep
Track Name: What You Said
When it gets like this
don't hesitate
I'm calling all the cards

And when it falls apart
we'll be awake

Hold you tongue
Take me on

I know what you said

When it gets like this
your demon's on
your back
And you're blinded by
the light

Hold your tongue
take me on

I know what you said

We were looking round for
anything you asked for
couldn't get around in the city
Track Name: Everclearer
Maybe I will make a million
and with it buy a home alone
I'll surround myself with dogs
and brahms

all the things I thought I knew
they fly away day by day
and all the things I fear know just
where to find me

I don't want to have to drink
but with this bottle at my side
I can see you
everclearer

all the shadows that i've cast
they run right behind me
and all the ghosts of moments past they
haunt me to the last

But I can see you
see you
I can see you
ever clearer
Track Name: Water's Edge
She said hush your mouth
you're making too much noise
and she led me by the hand
through darkness into thorns

There's a man by a ferryboat
he stands holding oar in hand
he's waiting for me

I asked, "Sir, will you take a dime?"
he turned to me and said,
"No I've seen too much change
in my time alone."

She said what do you think
can change a man
I said given enough time
all things are laid bare

but I knew regret's
the only thing that ever changed me
and I lied and there we laid
breathing quiet in

And thread bare
and needle worn I
walked to the water's edge and
had myself a drink
and watched my reflection think
alone
Track Name: We Can See
You can see
very easily
You can see
I'm a sad eyed fool

I can see
In the way you move
I can see
You're a wounded bird

We'll take it day by day

I want you to speak to me
Don't say a word
Just speak to me

Speak to me

Let the light bare me down home
Sifting silent back to one

Stay with me
Track Name: Lever
To run like a curse down a blood line
through the night lit streets is the crux
and I am the lever tonight
Track Name: Dream
Down here it's just rags or riches
so I'm bound south
to a place where a man can be warm

Sweep me off my feet
Take me off these rolling wheels
Sweep me off my feet
Show me how fire feels

Dream a dream
a little dream
come with me on painted wings

Fly, we'll fly
we'll fly through the night
sailing over ocean tides

Been frozen
For far too long
(but I) hear a train a howling'
and I am low
Track Name: The Ox
If I could burn thoughts away
with my butane lighter
I would be covered now in ash
though your voice would still be ringing

Thought I could sleep you away
lose you in corridors of dreaming
but in the morning I see clear
all of the places you'd be waiting

There's a world under the earth
don't it call when it all starts to hurt

There's a deep sky above all our eyes
though we may try we can't realize

Maybe it's like cold steel or ice that shoots through my head
As I turn the key and drive away into night
Screaming and pushing myself
Passing all the places I want to be
Is anything better than where I am

And If I the ox cannot go on
what of the load I've borne since the dawn
And if I the crow am lame
what of my flight
should I scratch across town until I'm gone?

You can't just sleep on a night like that or any night unique
without diving in to the depth of the moment
But all the same it adheres to you
and the song I sung rails across me

and I don't remember you at all
Track Name: When I Go
There's a knocking at my door
getting harder to ignore
and a grand black dog
who sits where my grave will be

And when he dies
upon my side
I'll bear his likeness
in black ink

But who will
bear me
when I go

I the man
With calloused hands
and you my queen
no more eighteen
our daughter's grown
a blushing bride
our son's a ghost
gone with the tide

And who can
bear it
when they go
