Track Name: The Road Ahead
Must I write this song again?
I thought for sure that we'd be better friends
but I cant sit here and pretend,
I know just what you mean
Cause I have seen the shadow cast
behind your teeth
Girl, when you smile that way at me
Your heart is out of reach

The future is never clear when the road ahead, is lonely dear.
But you can always share with me my skin.

Said it's so demanding
the way in which I'd planned it
See, I thought for sure maybe we'd grow old
and learn to let love in
but the tie that binds your heart to mine
I feel it wearing thin
it's a matter of time before you vanish
Just like the wind
Track Name: Without A Sound
I felt the earth quake
without a sound
Theres a fever burning
its way through the underground
all the sage brush of our hearts
is far to cold to start
and i cant light the match
if my arms are bound

Just close your eyes
We will be fine

To live this dream-out loud
our waking lives have no use for us now
Their skeletons all dance below the clouds
Wasted angels

I drank the prairie dew
So sovereign and mild
As she lay sleeping beside me
as peaceful as a child
A voice crawled like a leper from my tongue
and bathed her in the blanket of this song

Just close your eyes
We will be fine...
Track Name: The Long Way Around
Baby, pass me that honey bear
my tea is getting cold
I'd try to make a move on ya
but I ain't feeling bold
The light from the TV screen
makes shadows of us all
You're singing "Chandelier"
from half way down the hall
This is how we fall

How we fall victim to the wind
even before the storm begins

Let's take the long way around the hurt this time
The scenery right here, well it looks just fine

A sunflower's withering
in a Crystal vase
I can smell the disappointment
all over it's face
Now, thats the same look you gave me
when you walked away
While I stumbled all over
the words I couldn't say
Man, this is the worst way

To fall victim to the wind
even before the storm begins...
Track Name: You Animal!
Well, she had too much to drink
baby tumbled down the stairs
She was howling like a hound
with her heels in the air

nobody cared to notice
I guess it caught you unaware
when that pigeon built a nest
in the tangle of your hair

Ive found it hard to retrieve
your memory from my dreams
to wash your heart from my sleeve
so wet and warm

You wake-up every morning
with that devil in your bed
there's a heron in your heart
with it's wings forged of lead

Baby, I still can not shake-it
all thos silly things you said
as you slithered like a snake
through the voices in my head

Then you swallowed everything
you swallowed everything
you swallowed everything
that meant a damn to me
You Animal

Ive found it hard to retrieve
your memory from my dreams
to wash your heart from my sleeve
so wet and warm

I still can not believe
that you chose to perceive
our love as something you had no
patience for

You Animal!
Track Name: Make Believe
Now how did you know
that I couldnt tell
Heaven from the earth
the earth from hell
I ain't been feeling so well
I was drinking from the well
Just shaking the curse
layed down on me
by that freckly witch
at the apple tree
she's been tearing at the seams
of the fabric of my dreams

And I need you to make believe in me

For I cant believe myself
I dont see the light
I need a little help

It's a worrisome thing
that happens to a man
left alone too long
with his heart in his hands
with them voices in his head
on a pillow, in the bed
Urging him to break free
from the prison stall
of his fleshy form
of his bony walls
They've been holding him too long
in a place he knows is wrong

And I need you to make believe in me

For I cant believe myself
I dont see the light
I need a little help

Somewhere in Central Park their is a tree
where I buried your every memory
But I need you to make believe in me

For I cant believe myself
I dont see the light
I need a little help
Track Name: Oh, Philadelphia
Said the damage has been done
but boy did we have fun
Now I stand alone, just a king without a throne
throwing matches at the sun

Oh, Philadelphia
your son is tired and cold
His house is not a home, it's a body without bones
with its bedrooms full of gold

I've never known where to begin
Sure i gave up, but baby you gave in
Now I wander like the wind in search of something true
I've never known a home since I knew you

With this verse I should begin
Confession of my sins
with my hand upon my chest, I swear I've done my best
with what I've been given

Oh, Philadelphia
what have you done to me
My throat is full of sand, my heart is in your hand
Unrighteous rhapsody

I've never known where to begin
Sure i gave up, but baby you gave in
Now I wander like the wind in search of something true
I've never known a home since I knew you

So I'll run to you

Cause I haven't known a home since I knew you
Track Name: Dirty Soles
You've got some delicate Soles
Them pretty dirty feet
I'm on a thought process
thats like a one way street
I wanna give you time
dont wanna be discreet
cause im a broken man
completely incomplete

I wanna spread you like a fire, baby

Im shattered, through and through
Hung up on, hung up on you

Now I can see your face
in the eye of the storm
your eyes, they look the same
but your smile is worn
So, dont you be ashamed
just cause your stockings are torn
For Im a broken man
Foremost forelorn

I wanna roll you like a tumbleweed

Im shattered, through and through
Hung up on, hung up on you

You got me buzzin' like a bumble bee
Baby be my king I'll be your queen
I woke up and it was all a dream
This time...
Track Name: Made Love
After I am gone
You best make no mistake
for I made all the love
that one man could make
I rode the desert raw
Skinned that rattle-snake
and left a better world
somewhere in my wake

But i've been limping around in circles
with my good foot in the grave

When the sun finally sets
somewhere way out west
please let my daughter know
That I always did my best
to be a better man
live life without regrets
Remind her of the light
that burns beneath her chest

Cause i've been limping around in circles
with my good foot in the grave

A mans life cant be measured by amount
I ain't lookin' for no easy way out
but when the Lord calls me back to his house
I just want my last check to bounce

Cause I've been limping around in circles
with my good foot in the grave
Track Name: Brighter Man
If you listen close you'll hear your blood as it screams
Through the narrow laberynth of your veins
There's a memory in every single thing!
There's a miracle in every memory

So may the light shine down always
May it shine on everything we'll ever see
I've been digging with tired, trembling hands
Trying to free your spirit from the sand

There's a secret that I have never told
It keeps me warm whenever she grows cold
See I was never really altogether sold
On her ever-loving heart of gold

But may the light shine down always
May it shine on everything we'll ever see
We're all alone-from where I stand
As just the shadow of some brighter man

I no longer expect more than the worst
This tragedy so well rehearsed

May the light shine down always...
