Track Name: Round The Dust
Burning out around the world sending thoughts to a newborn girl
Falling down from ageless clouds with words that shine like pearls
Filtered through the smog and gloom to dance upon your ears
Crystal clean and full of dreams for only her to hear

Touching down on ancient ground too slowly to be real
Mind is lost to an albatross breathless above the keel
And I call to her in foreign words laid out upon the air
She holds the parts, she knows the charts and how to find me there

Cause it’s all for her though she can not see all the stones I’ve cleared for our journey
It’s done for love, if it’s truly real, to be given life you must help to heal
Track Name: Highway
I’m going to crash my car right into a lake
I’m going to stop my heart for Jesus’ sake
Going to give my energy back to the world
You need a jumpstart from a young heart

There’s a drop of blood at the end of the day
A pinprick of light a million miles away
Some call it hope and some call it faith
My Lord’s a lady

She’s the light bulb in your basement when the spider’s got you scared
And she’ll open all your wounds so they will properly be repaired
And when you’re making all your smoke signals, she’ll be there to fan the flames
And if you ever do her wrong, she’s going to race you to your grave

Well, I thought she was the Devil
But she was as sweet as summer sun
But she’ll break every one of your fingers
If she thinks that you are making fun

Now the hounds in my head are starting to bark
And they’re growing in number as the city grows dark
And I’m breaking down while she’s building up
My Lord will save me, come on baby

Now them highways are a bloodbath
They are as a dark as they are long
With every charred and burning animal
Only moistens the serpent’s tongue

Their innocence and instinct
Are only getting in the way
Maybe if they could speak their minds
Then we would listen to what they have to say
Track Name: Baby Rock Me
Shadowed words of warning, too foreign to understand
Echo down the deepest well, “Won’t you hear me as I am?”
My eyes well-up at the silence, faltered dreams and rain
Toss and turn in the violence, I call out in pain

Baby rock me, all night long

Running down to the basement, veins are full of flames
Hiding from the Devil’s words that call me by name
And I always loved the garden and the power to be saved
I never thought these hands of mine would dig my own grave

So baby rock me, all night long

The fall through the trees is endless, it seems
And I call to the sky to apologize
For this love has passed me by

Now I sit in an empty room, a broken man at best
If she could love me inspite of this I think that I could rest
But I messed it up, haven’t I, messed it up again
And I don’t think that I’ll make it out of this and if I do I’ll be damned

So baby rock me
Track Name: Millions Of People
She’s a sailor’s dream
Asleep in her jeans
Laying down love
So clean and obscene

With the space in her teeth
And the dirt in her hair

Take it all in
We’re gonna do it again
Cause I think I’m in love

With millions of people moving along

We got bottles of wine
Empty and dried
And those hot street signs
Pulse in from outside

With your keys in the door
And the clothes on the floor

Take it all in
We’re gonna do it again
Cause I think I’m in love

With millions of people moving along
Track Name: Sandy
Sometimes I wish I never met you,
I wish I looked the other way
Then I wouldn’t be so turned around
In the mess I’m in today

I’m so helpless,
Like a baby in your arms
One glance form a distance
And I’m forever in your charms

Hey, Sandy, don’t believe what I say
Let’s forget that we ain’t working out
And hit the road today

Let’s go out driving
Down them dusty roads
Sandy, you gotta take the wheel
Cause my heart is about to explode

Night after night it was fight after fight

Hey, Sandy, the sun sinks so low
Let’s swim past those breakers
To the spot that only you and I know
Oh, Sandy, my hands and heart are for you
But there ain’t a damn thing I can do
Track Name: Jesus
Jesus gonna save me now
Cause I gotta go, I gotta go

Everybody jump and shout
We’re all gonna go, yeah all gonna go
Where everyone goes?
Nobody knows

Everybody come get down
Cause we’re all gonna go, yeah all gonna go
Where everybody goes?
Nobody knows

We’re sinking down to the bottom

And I can hear the thunder
And I can see the rain
I can taste the acid
And I can feel the pain
And I go…
To feel so helpless comes as no surprises

Jesus can’t save me now
No one’s gonna save me now
Cause no one here quite knows how

But I gotta go, yeah I gotta go
Where everyone goes?
Nobody knows

We’re sinking down to the bottom

There’s no heartbeat
Track Name: Home
She’s the mother of evil, the harvester of healers and she will come
She’s the driver and dealer, the jailer and freer and she will come
She’s the magic one’s daughter, who then taught her how to hurt most everyone
And when eyes focus clear she’ll be near to bring smoke where there was none

So hold on when you’re right near the end
She’ll shine on when the darkness descends
And you will ride on and bring the news to your friends
You’re coming home again

When the trees start to bend and the floodwalls give in, she will come
When your pockets hold none and the clouds steal the sun, she will come
In the grips of despair she’ll be there to hold your hair while you cry
But in the back of your mind you will find, over time, where she resides

When you stumble and slow from the path that she showed, then you will know
She’ll pick you up form the grave and clean the wounds that she gave and you will know
When you struggle for air she’ll be there to breath life back into your eyes
But in the lips that revived you will find were the dealers of the crime

So hold on when you’re right near the end
She’ll shine on when the darkness descends
And you will ride on and bring the news to your friends
You’re coming home again

Love will lead us home
Track Name: Big Bad
I’m looking for leaf, man
I’m looking for a white line
I’m looking for brown sunshine

Cause I’m missing your red head
And I’m burning up blue
I’m running down road signs
Cause I’m coming after you

I’m losing my head now
My teeth are all dulled down
My claws are all but broken

Cause I’m so in love with you
And I’ve got it so bad
I never meant to scare you
But I’m coming after you

It’s my fantasy
The cops are coming after me
I drive a hundred and three
And angle that rearview mirror down
So I can see

Well, you ain’t so big
And you ain’t so bad
And I got what you want
And that makes you mad

So come hunt me down
Like I knew you would
Cause you’re the big, bad wolf
But I’m little red riding hood
Track Name: Crawl Back
Lyrics by C. Tanton

On my way down to Carolina
Found me a loud stereo
Trash trucks holler in the morning
Needle down on Oleo

Three days must have been the morning
Girl would giggle and smile
Blue pill falling from her soft hands
Down the hatch, I’m yours for awhile

Crawl back, into the sea
Crawl back, just a few leagues
Crawl back, into the sea
With me

Earned my way chopping up the ink well
Talk to them soft and nice
Try to steer clear of the short man
Dishing out his advice

Three days must have been the morning
Girl would giggle and smile
Blue pill falling from her soft hands
Down the hatch, I’m yours for awhile

On my way out of Carolina
Walked and found a field of gold
Old man waiting with a shotgun
“Boys, do as your told”

Headed up north, landed upstate
Time to recuperate
Just now opened up the letter
Southern belle a little late
Track Name: Boo Hoo
I’ve been dead inside for most of my life
I get stuck in the bottom of the bucket
My eyes get wide and I take a look inside
Bad luck hits, I’m stuck in the bucket

I push all night just to try and tip it right
I lose my breath and I fall to my knees
I can see that sky and the clouds pass on by
And I wonder what’s becoming of me
Yeah, I wonder what’s becoming of me

If there’s a God above won’t you rain me down some love
Cause I’m bottom of the barrel
I been stuck down here for a week and a year
And I’m losing my mettle
If you fill me up I will raise my cup
I’ll float to the top and I’ll fly
But if your eyes are dry, well I ain’t that surprised
I’ll sit in the dark till I die

Now I’m an old, old man, I’ve got two broken hands
From punching the bottom of this bucket
Some day a flood’s going to come, it’s going to take everyone
And my loneliness won’t feel so bad

If there’s a God above won’t you rain me down some love
Cause I’m bottom of the barrel
I been stuck down here for a week and a year
And I’m losing my mettle
If you fill me up I will raise my cup
I’ll float to the top and I’ll fly
But if your eyes are dry, well I ain’t that surprised
I’ll sit in the dark till I die

I’m so filled with spite, I think I’m gonna survive
Track Name: With You All Along
I want you to be here

(I am) with you all along
