Track Name: Lady Ann
When I was younger, younger than you
I’d say lots of stupid shit that I knew I’d never do
Like running up the charts like the seat of my pants
Was a ball of burning flames
I’d have so many goddamned women
I’d have to give them numbers instead of names

I’m gonna to write a book, you’re gonna read it
It’s gonna change your life
I’m gonna write a song there, too
That’ll put an end to strife
I’m gonna find me the smartest woman
I’m gonna make her my wife
We’re gonna live in a goddamned mansion
And roam the hills at night

Lady Ann, where are you now?
Cause I’ve seen some things
I could live without
But there’s people, good people
Who are here tonight
I call them my family
And I call you my wife

Back to the salt mines and my chewed up hands
And I drag my tired bones to go and meet the band
Then something takes hold like a shot in the vein
And my eyes, they come alive
I’m forever being born again
When I plug in and play it live

Lady Ann, where are you now?
Cause I’ve seen some things
I could live without
But there’s people, good people
Who are here tonight
I call them my family
And I call you my wife
Track Name: Gunnin' Thru The Nite
Gunnin’ thru the night
Scaring all the glowing eyes from the cold roadside
Do you delight?
Knowing that the path ahead has never been read

In years before, in woodsman’s lore
There stood a mare, in white, declared

This isn’t right
I see that all deployed will be destroyed
There’ll be a fight
To which all employed will be cast to the void

In infinite and silent space
We will come together to form a place

Where human kind will be no more
Our earthly bodies held closed the doors
We’ll form as one as the beads are strung
The energies of a million years
Of life and death and countless fears

Do you comply?
With this prophecy of our reality
It is a lie
Our human path is not to last
It is to die
To be free from hate and earthly constraints
We will unite
As a celestial soul out of our control

And the feelings of this genesis
Like born again to forever exist

Where human kind will be no more
Our earthly bodies held closed the doors
Well form as one as the beads are strung
The energies of a million years
Of life and death and countless fears
Track Name: House In The Sky
I threw out my needles
Just when I needed them most
I’ve got these records I want to listen to
Now it’s just silence and ghosts

We may be getting older
We may be coming through
The weeks of March are a killer
And I’m a casualty, too

From this house in the sky
I thought of all the ways to die
And all the ways to do me in
It’s a long way to the bottom
But I think that I’m going to win

Like the birds in the sky
Who go to sea when they die
It’s not to be understood
It’s less like rivers
And more like sap from wood

I taste the earth and ocean
Heavy in my mouth
It’s coming down through the tunnels
And going out through the south

Days in a haze
Repeat, repeat, one after one
No ICU
I’m the living dead I feared I’d become

From this house in the sky
I thought of all the ways to die
And all the ways to do me in
It’s a long way to the bottom
But I think that I’m going to win

Like the birds in the sky
Who go to sea when they die
It’s not to be understood
It’s less like rivers
And more like sap from wood

Hands are clenched so tight on the wheel
See the strain on my skin as it cracks and peels

But the blood doesn’t flow
Like the Lord knows it should
No, it’s less like rivers
And more like sap from wood

Emancipation is coming
For those that I love
They’ll think they’ve failed
Until time heals what I’ve done

I’ve made a list
I’ve checked it twice
I’m checking out and not in
Such a clever device

From this house in the sky
I thought of all the ways to die
And all the ways to do me in
It’s a long way to the bottom
But I think that I’m going to win

Like the birds in the sky
Who go to sea when they die
It’s not to be understood
It’s less like rivers
And more like sap from wood
Track Name: Laura in C Major (A Minor)
Laura, Laura
Looking for a
Heart to hold a hand

Now I know
I’ve seen something
That I know I shouldn’t have

And now her heart is broken
Like the car parts in the street
And now my heart is broken
To see a phase of life complete

Laura, Laura
Years before a
Mother and a wife

Independent
And sufficient
To lead her own life

And now her heart is broken
Like the car parts in the street
And now my heart is broken
To see a phase of life complete

Mother takes a phone call
She’s been training herself to hear
While the son plays with the phone cord
Miles away from a mother’s fears

Laura, Laura
How ignore a
Light that wasn’t green

The car before
You lost the war
May very well have been me

It comes to this
As all things lose
Their right to live at home

I saw the beginning
To your end
But we all must die alone

And now her heart is broken
Like the car parts in the street
And now my heart is broken
To see a phase of life complete
Track Name: The Major
If by sea she called to me,
“I’ll be around when your ship runs aground
All our youth we gave to love
And now I need a little something more”

Cause she’s trapped when she ought to be free
And she’s looking at me as though I held the key
I play dumb, cause she knows that I’m young
But when she turns to the sun and asks if I wanna come
I say yeah

Feel the light and the humming breeze
Soothing your mind and curing disease
Man alive who came down from the trees
Has still got a long way to go

When all that you’ve lost blurs all that you’ve gained
And the creaking of doors are calling your name
Pull you forward where you know you should be,
But when she whispers, “A baby born has got to be free”
I say yeah

A dedication to the labor of the heart
Friends and neighbors and bitter families torn apart
Oh, holy nature, you’re the one to whom I serve

You’re the major
You’re the savior
Save me
