Track Name: Wilderness
Two days gone
And your face is wrong
It's twisted and it's smeared in my head
A Friday drive and a night so long
In my dreams, all there is is dead

Come one come all
Come big and small
Hurry up and don't miss the train
Cause tides and smiles and silver turnstiles
They teach us that we, we're all the same

Cracks of laughs and photographs
Only serve to keep the flame
But twice a week when you look at me
You send me down that road again

So go alone, sit by coffin-stones
Get your act down the road and run
Go sit by the lake, go and lie in wait
For the knife that's never going to come

Make me as frozen as a backlit northern dawn
Put me to bed, but leave my boots on
I am tired, so tired
In the mind.

As I wait for the medicine to make its way
I can feel every single bone that's in my face
Cracked and battered, bruised and shattered
Just trying to see if they were real or they were fake

In hazy nights I stand 'neath shower lights
For an hour, and then, an hour more
My legs gets weak, wooden bones start to creak
If you stay in long enough and you let the water get warm
Well I swear, I swear, I swear, I swear
It can almost feel like, again, you're being born.
Track Name: Jump Too
You're afraid of a dog so you curse when he's just trying to talk
So he bites your leg and now you're suing to get him shot
A month goes by your leg's healed, the dog is dead
But you're still feeling wronged; at least the dog had someone to share his bed

And so you're walking home got your best anger face on
You say the world's the king and the moon's his queen, and I'm a pawn
But if you only knew how I truly feel for you
I bet you would have held my hand and jumped too

Don't have to push me all that hard 'cause I can fall of that ledge on my own
Talked to the sidewalk below and he promised to make a better home
And as a boy I'd always thought it'd be so cool if I could fly
You keep talking to me like that you might just talk me into trying

Skipping home, got my best dancing shoes on
And there's a hole in the heel where I kicked your door in
And if you only knew how I truly feel for you, I bet you would have held my hand and jumped too.
Track Name: Good Person
I've had enough of this sovereignty
I want you back here with me
I've had my day, I've made my play
I want to give up independence

I see the sight, and for a while
I see the glint of your eye
And in the forest air, I feel you there
I see the wisp of your long brown hair

I'll be fine, here, on my own.
I can start to count all my coins.

Let me sip until I die
Let me sleep until I'm weak
Leave me out in the rain
I want to fall down the drain

Out to the West, that I know the best,
I want to see the top of the hills
I want the watershed to be my bed
I want to flow down into the sea

Well, it's hard to be a good person
It's hard to be a good person.
Track Name: See You Tonight
I’ll see you tonight my dear, my love

Wherever you may go
I'll be waiting for you
Rain, cold, sleet, or snow, my love
I'll be waiting there for you
Yes, I'll be waiting for you
Yes, I'll be waiting for to come

You will see
That you and I will be
In arm and arm in arm and arm
Arm and arm in arm and arm
You'll see
And on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on
We'll be
Track Name: Hash Browns
Your friend plays music on her CD player
But you're afraid to sing along.
You fear you voice might not fit the track,
And you don't want to get a word wrong.

You say you're looking for a quiet night
To rent a movie and sit around.
Maybe a dinner party with a few good friends,
But if he asks you'll go out and see the town.

Fall asleep in the lost and found,
Wake with both feet on the ground,
Find a diner with hash browns,
You've always got tomorrow to sit around

It's a middle week in November,
Nodding at people as they pass
By my window, and I remember
questions when with you I was to afraid to ask.
But I must have left them behind
As I packed things into my mind,
Because I can't seem to find them anywhere.
Track Name: Grow Your Hair Out
You're walking, you're talking to me
And we're talking, we're walking to see
What you want, all we want is to be free

In my pocket, my eye sockets bleed
In your locket, got Davey Crockett and he screams
"What we want, all we want is to be free."

So grow your hair out my little child
You've got yours still 'till they say they care
and when you're older you're gonna cut it down
'Cause if that's what they want, then that's what you want
If that's what they want, then that's what you want

The court jester, the queen's impressor cry rot
The encyclopedic compressor's jaw drops
What we want, all we want is to stop our thoughts

So tell your parents, tell your professors, and tell the cops
No need to teach us or police us into rocks
What we want, all we want is to stop our thoughts
Track Name: Lakesigns
I never want to leave the places that I'm leaving
I never asked to see the things that I'm seeing

Take a load for mother there, who's busy with her things
Rocking baby's gurgling cry and clipping daddy's wings

A body not there, but you'll see it's in the air
Take my lake signs and you'll find that you're divine

Heaven smells a rotten mess and hell of roses reeks
Can you wait a while more before the big man speaks?

Shake a toad and say a prayer and out comes a shining prince
Kick a mare just standing there and she won't even wince

A body not there, but you'll see it's in the air
Take my lake signs and you'll find that you're divine
Track Name: Moonrise
Blue skin and you are looking on
Blue skin and you are
Blue skin and you hold my throat
Blue skin and I start to choke

Clocks keep moving on and Dali smiles
Clouds are liquid in the eyes of a child
Push me forward and I'll roll back a mile
Sphinx and pyramids sink into the Nile

Catch your picture you're a full grown swan
Paint your picture gonna last 'til dawn

Full moon rising and the stars burn on
Track Name: Sunset Limited
I know how it works
And how they fit in your scheme
The weight of the backpack
And the empty canteen
But I know something else
And that’s the sound of the scream
When they found her body lying
By the edge of the stream

You’re just armchair, homeschool retirees
Saturday, Sunday
You’re vigilantes
If you ever saw a real face
And let it breeze
You’d cower in the corner
Of your RV

Hiding in the dark
With a code of his own
It’s Omar Little, of the desert zone
Stand back, hold up
And aim at the brain
He’s taking bales and scales
From players of the game

You can hear it over there
But you can’t see it anywhere
The sky is dim and the clouds are gone
You think you see the break of another dawn

But it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone

It’s the Sunset Limited
It’s the Sunset Limited
It’s the Sunset Limited

And it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone

If you want evidence that things have gone too far
Take a look at the soldier from the National Guard
Who went down to Arizona with her gear all stowed
To die in the heat building the border road

And the mess don’t stop with just human affairs
Please take a look at the lions and the bears
Or the men who caught the jaguar they’re sworn to protect
To find it dead weeks later, their collar round its neck

The guard asks the woman for I.D. with a stare
So she can take her kids and get over there
To the place where she was born and her family resides
Can’t be from two places with the world split into sides

You can hear it over there
But you can’t see it anywhere
The sky is dim and the clouds are gone
You’ll never see the break of another dawn

Cause it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone

It’s the Sunset Limited
It’s the Sunset Limited
It’s the Sunset Limited

And it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone
Track Name: Downtown
I was eighteen, you were one year younger
We came uptown, no one could steal our thunder
We went downtown

Remember that time waiting for the bus?
Please think hard, you surely must:
We had to wait forever in the sun
While we were standing there
The people walking by would stare
But you, you didn't care
You'd only look at me
Instead of waiting for that bus to come
We could have struck out on the run
Left all our clothes and gone downtown

You laughed and smiled and pulled the sheets
The lines and dips, your shape beneath
Your beauty and your grace, kept me whole
Midnight drives with the windows down
You're fast asleep, without a sound
All roads, they lead downtown

Two years down the line
I still wish you were mine
I'd love to wait forever in the sun
But now you are long gone
And I don't even see the dawn.
Instead I walk the streets of downtown

The one last favor I'll ask of you
Is: meet me on the avenue
And treat me as the man that you knew.
Treat me as the man that you knew
As the man that I was,
As the man that is gone.
Track Name: What You Don't Know
What you don't know won't hurt you
You hear a voice under your bed and see a monster staring back
You let him be
You hear a voice in your head but instead of screaming back
Say it's just me
What you don't know won't hurt you

You've got your game face on now pull your gym shorts on
Pick up the recess ball and chuck it at his head
And you dream you've got the strength of Superman
As your ball falls through his hand

What you don't know won't hurt you
You break your word like a rubber band and dodge the truth by twisting facts that you believe
So write your name out in the sand
Invite the tide to put it back
And you can't breathe
What you don't know won't hurt you

So turn your stereo on and dance with ghosts 'til dawn
And when the sun comes up you spoon the monsters in your bed
And when you land from that flight with Peter Pan
I hope you'll still hold my hand
