Mine are tighter than yours but you still treat me like a man Even though they’re on tour they’re still our favorite band Show me something love and I’ll take you by the hand Tell me one thing you hate and we can make a forever plan Because you know that you’re my hero. Would you like me to act on your excitement ? Would you like me to act on your behalf ? I could Feathers in her hair and fireworks in the pan We’d better get out of here just as fast as we possibly can I’ll show you how to steer and we’ll point this sinking ship back to land We can hide behind our fear that no one will ever understand But you know that you’re my hero My hero waits inside My hero loves his mind

I see it there and it’s already gone I see it there and it’s already gone, oh How you still can see the light Even when you close your eyes How you still can see the light, oh I always thought that when I got old I’d get everything that I was told Live in peace and happiness With never an occasion to miss But I was wrong

I’m here in more than bits, though mine’s a tired voice I’m here in more than bits ...and if I’m tired when I’m tired then I’m tired by choice because I’m infinite Don’t wear that mask around here I see right through your cavalier cheer The paint dries and the tears fall I’ve finally got you where I always wanted you I’ve come to take you home I’m here to see you off I’ve come because I can’t tell if you’d rather be alone I’m here because I can’t seem to turn it off because I’m infinite I’m coming Rome for all you know for all you grow I’m going to burn it all down

I cleaned up the carpet And I made up the bed I did all the dishes And I stretched before bed Thinking that if you Ever visit my home You’d like that things are in order No garden overgrown Cause I thought for a while That maybe you’d come over I thought for a while At least you’d stop by I knew that you had someone Else in your life That I shouldn’t get hopeful Imagine you in my life Talking came easy I never wanted to stop Walking with you I was flying But when you left then I dropped Well I thought for a while That maybe you’d love me I thought for a while At least you might try

Who knows how long I’ve needed you Who knows how long I’ve tried Who knows how long this luck will do Who knows how long I’ve died Oh, I’m the sadmaker... I know my mind And I’m learning yours And I’m killing time Who knows how down and out you get beneath the crescent moon Who sees how brown and wet the snow that crowds outside your room Who pulls the string on a gilded bow to pierce the red balloon Who plants the seed in a forest fire and promises it’s still too soon Oh, I’m the sadmaker... Who knows the cost of being true Who gives the lost a guide Who sees across this ocean view And believes the frost, well it won’t lie Oh, I’m the sadmaker...

I’ll be your husk if you’ll be my meal My clementine, I’m the perfect peel Tear me off in a spiral and cut off the mold I’ll do whatever to avoid what I’m told I’ll be your crust if you can teach me to feel Blind and bold behind the wheel I’m stuck in my ways and growing old I’ll trust in forever to avoid what I’m told We lost our path and we screwed up the math We broke the rules and blunted tools to disguise the fact that we are April fools who’d give an hour for a laugh Well I know I don’t carry any weight So I hold my breath

I guess, in retrospect, it didn’t make a difference I guess, in retrospect, it didn’t make a difference Echoes of you and me, spider webs in southern trees Echoes of you and me, spider webs in southern trees And so to love again, but not to love each other And so to love again, but not to love each other She said, “Green grows from ashes Green grows from ashes, oh” I see you lying there I see the footsteps in the air

I'm sure I know a quicker pace but I don't need it First to the other end (of this island) then east I'm sure I know a quicker pace but I don't need it...

Open doors in land locked states, Windy City, squeaking brakes, a picket fence and broken gates, don’t knock if its too late. We met folks up in Portland with peace on their minds and hearts for the Eastern spirit. If you go that far north, words lose their minds and there’s truth for those who hear it. Long ghost talks and conscience stops Rain come pouring in; rain come quench my soul. Sun come shining in; sun come dry out my soul. I saw signs in a car tire covered with leaves by a naked tree. Savage drunk and happy, it was savage drunk and happy.

I see your ghost Yes, I’ve seen your lovely ghost Go on back now, to the porch Past the trees to the old dirt patch The bourbon bottle and the glamour shots Even the fence, it makes a certain kind of sense Don’t hang your art from no picture frame Cause two by two they both look the same You fix it up and then you pay the rent Then move on, it makes a certain kind of sense Another job, in another town You’re moving up now don’t look down After all these years the world’s made amends-- Your recompense, it makes a certain kind of sense Fast to live, you’ll be slow to go The dirt hides a while beneath the snow A life fulfilled by prescribed events Oh my God, it made a certain kind of sense No, no I don’t believe them No, no I don’t care what they say I see your ghost Yes, I’ve seen your lovely ghost

Darlin, darlin, gone Once in a while I think of your smile Then it is gone Never returned I see that you lied And in the dark I see that you spark Open the door Light on the floor Always want more And so again How will we spend Days all alone Living in stone Darlin, darlin, gone Wait for return Until then, burn Burn for the dark Burn for your spark Singe me again Twist time again Like it will bend But it will not Never again I see that you lied Darlin, darlin, gone
