Track Name: Desert
Dressed inside & consequence
Fatal truths & monuments
Believers see in doubt
Within and Without

Ch:
Sit & waste our time away
Sit & waste our time here…

Opaque veil on the day
Nothing’s clear anyway
Dirty ground is cold
Blowin’ wind is growin’ old…

Chorus

Plaster signs of what we were
Remnants of what we became
Shadows of fragments left behind
We give it all up in time…

Chorus – Repeat x 2
Track Name: Burned Down
Thinking bad of time away,
Listen to the words and what they say

Reeling in the moments, fleeting gap
Taking time and going back…

Brass back favor reveals the trace,
Remote control guilt taking shape…

Chorus

And I feel like I’m burning down,
Embers smolder on the ground,
Light go down, day drops away,
The veil of night takes its place…

Peeling paint & memories
Lost episodes & reveries

Ceilings shadow, night’s silent dark
When can salvation really start?

Coffee fuel feeds the mind,
Body’s burned down, one more time…

Chorus
And I feel like I’m burning down,
Embers smolder on the ground,
Light go down, day drops away,
The veil of night takes its place…
Track Name: Come Back to Me
Come, come back to me, I’ve been waiting for eternity (x2)

Verse 1
Hold it to myself, thinking of the precious time and the future, the future holding you.
Looking at myself, thinking of someone else, staring at a silhouette of you.
There’s a thread of truth you see in all mythology not a sparkle or a glimmer.

Chorus (x2)

Verse 2
The shore is alone, as the wave has finally broke, there’s me, you and tomorrow.
Caught up in-between, and it’s not just what it seems, the meeting and the allusive you.
Looking at the lake, having what it takes, there’s now and there’s surrender.
Track Name: Shoes
Verse 1

Can’t bring down that which holds you up.
To break it in is half the fun.
Through the motions, out the other side.
To build your shelter is to affirm life.

Chorus:
I can’t make you ride a bike.
I can’t make you tie your shoes.
I can’t make your friends for you, and I can’t make you choose.

Verse 2

While I’m here, I’ll be your guide,
But ultimately, you’ll have to decide.
The journey’s begun, ready or not.
I’ll be your counsel, but you’ll call the shots.

Chorus

Verse 3

I’ll be with you, as I’ve said before.
But you’ll be the one to open that door.
Always something different, always something more.
The key is indifference, of that much I’m sure.
Track Name: Will Be Tomorrow
Verse 1
I’m so frustrated with the waiting, and I welcome the coming...
Relief it will be mind, in good time, you just wait and...
See me, I’m right here, I want to hold you and I want to touch your...
Face it, seems like all we have is each other and the mystery

Chorus 1
I know you had big plans, and this won’t change that, I hope you understand.

Verse 2
Seeing is believing, I hold that to my heart, and that is where I’ll...
Start today, making sense and sorting through the mysteries of...
Time lost here and there, why do I care, I can’t...
Name it, call it what you will, what’s here is there still and will be tomorrow...

Chorus 2
I know you had big plans, and this won’t change that, I hope you understand.
Life will still be the way it always seemed, and maybe a little brighter.
Track Name: Inland Sea
Looking out on the inland sea
the first snow of winter beginning to fall.
forlorn gray clouds of darker months
set themselves on the day.
Coming in from the north northeast
the sun getting dim.
Knowing when to stop and turn around
that's the place where things begin.

I had been there many times before, the wind biting at my face.
Knowing when to get going was one thing, but knowing when to turn around, thats something else...

try to breathe as wind push down on me.
Looking in the face of God, everything and nothing.
The weather didn't stop me, seas didn't neither.
on deck or in the wheelhouse, sure we'd pull through.
Fear didn't exist, it couldn't.
fearless and maybe a little naive,
but with death at every turn
drunk our minds with love and whiskey

The lakes were still rich with traffic
captains and businessmen betting on the wind
willing to try and push the season
bet on the weather but respect the sea
an extra few dollars the difference
between ham & potted meat
we took that bet and lost it
in the fall of nineteen hundred thirteen
Track Name: Wanted Heart
Verse 1
When I was young, the road seemed so open, rode fast and hard to leave behind my past.
A lifetime sneaks up on you in minutes, and once it’s gone you can’t get it back
Pictures on the wall, years gone by, time isn’t on my side, but it’s lost for good
Realized too late this is a one shot deal, now I too painfully understood

Chorus:
I only wanted to be wanted.
But now I run with the hunted.
My mistakes are scars, lessons learned.
I gave it all, touched the flames and got burned


Verse 2
Rage builds as I look in the mirror, how could I have been so blind.
Now, it couldn’t be any clearer, sometimes what ya seek, you don’t find.
Now I know I could’ve got off easy, I could have turned around any time.
But that devil got the best of me, and now I’ve reached the end of the line.


Chorus:
I only wanted to be wanted.
But now I run with the hunted.
My mistakes are scars, lessons learned.
I gave it all, touched the flames and got burned
Track Name: Deep Side
Silence deepened gulf, river breaks free
Horizon’s fire sunset, edges burn brightly
Pickin scabs, making scars, blood runs freely

Chorus

Separate the old times, from tomorrow
Eyes bloodshot, red, close down the moment
Clock ticks slowly, seconds are open, open…

Chorus

TV plays distant to the background
Night sky overhead, star-veiled solace
Losing air, shallowed, makes a full circle

Chorus

Ain’t no truth in what I’ve found – wash away,
Wash away,
Wasy away…
Track Name: This Year
The song - the story - the one I try to tell
Different than the one I’ve always held
Untold - Clearly - the mystery unfolds
The plot thickens - Greatest story never told

Candle light vigil - I hold my breath
I count the flickers - Sure I’m set
Eager to swing it, been down so long
Can’t give up - the answers - Got it all wrong

This year could be different, but I ain’t gonna hold my breath; got pain on the brain obsessing insane and it’s really anyone’s guess.

The blight - the fracture - Takes me away
Like a Calgon trip, soothing, but never the same
I hold dear my family - I know I can’t fail
There’s a faith in tomorrow that always prevails.

How long? Not long, as I gather my strength
There’s gold in them hills, if I just make a break
The light is green and it takes me away
Slave to salvation - stasis remains.

This year could be different, but I ain’t gonna hold my breath; got pain on the brain obsessing insane and it’s really anyone’s guess.
