Track Name: Dear John
Dear John I'm leaving you today
if it were up to me you know I'd stay
you know I've had my fill
so why'd you do it still
Dear John I'm leavin you today

All your lived in rooms, your bright machines
I love them and I hate them all the same
the kids I'll miss them all
but half of them are gone
Dear John I'm leavin you today

of this life together, I want out...

but I don't know just where I'm gonna go
this place, it all still feels like home
I don't know just where I'm gonna go

these burns upon my arms, they just won't fade
oh John oh John I must get far away
pictures on the wall, they stay too short or long
Dear John I'm leavin you today
Track Name: Envious Turn
all is uncertain and half a step off
it's up to the court of appeals
i've left all these boxes and cases around
waiting for something to change
let must or if be damned
with whomever's afraid
in rooms in between in time
callin' out "we've had enough"

left to forget a face and phrase
temporary in between
can't you see we've had enough

we'll win, win our own place in an envious turn
and face these green times, oh
take leave and drop out of a race without end
it's all the company spinning words round
can't you see we've had enough, oh...

all is uncertain and half a step off
it's up to the court of appeals
with this paralysis comes fatigue
set me free

spinnin' words round
shakin the letters and forming rhymes
we'll learn to leave right
and win our own place in the heartache

we'll win, win our own place in an envious turn
and face these green times, oh
take leave and drop out of a place without end
it's all the company spinnin' words round
i can see you've had enough, oh...

so come on, show me a smile tonight
Track Name: Marchers
all the marchers follow you today
in hope for getting back
without losing peace and solitude
here's one for johnny gray

who fell among these island towns
one by one they all went down
down to where the children watching
down they fell oh one by one

oh sullen fields
oh mountains holding all your secrets
watch our trials
i just want to sit and watch my plants grow
and watch my children grow old
but mountains harbor parasites
when they sweep down on by

kings and thieves in island towns
one by one they all went down
down to where the children watching
down they fell oh one by one

we are fine without you here
bring down our daily dues
and what we find
fall out of line to break the progress
we may not regain
reverse the miles
of defeat

kings and thieves in island towns
one by one they all went down
down to where the children watching
down they fell oh one by one

down they fell oh one by one
Track Name: Into The World
I'll let you in
pursued together
the bright and dim
cracks in our pavement
living structure deep within
and i say oh-

if I had a quarter feeling
of what i used to feel
I would sing for days
wondering how my life
had been confiscated

they've never seen it there
we're confiscated
but could we start this moving

I'm pushing the wheels now
this bright new machine
has come from mists and shadows

why now would i walk away from it?
this bright new machine, tires and steam
gets us goin'- hear it
might hide my face, you know i'm asking to go
dodgin' around the question, baby, let it out-

what are homes without a fire?
second without guessing falling apart
just let it go
let it be stronger
just this once, set it off, flint to tinder
I'm all in

into the world
nature's rotation
into the world
gets me free again
into the world
too free for caution
Track Name: Fools
all the pictures in the room
show different sides of you
riddle me to dust and pass on through

we were many states away
with colas on a summer day
pedals raising dust away we flew

trip to the corner store
pay with the change-
we knew you before

within stained shirts
we skinned our knees
the self-conscious new england boys
we'd grow to be
don't let this child's heart become obscene

in towns as black as cloth
the match was struck at dawn
and moved us towards all that was to follow
all we'd find
the way you look today
the way you looked back then
makes me wonder what it was that followed
in those times
in towns as black as cloth

something pushes on
I'm closer to the edge, covering my eyes
la la la we're gone

the match was struck at dawn
and moved us towards all that was to follow
all we'd find
the way you look today
the way you looked back then
makes me wonder what it was that followed
in those times
in towns as black as-

speak to the day we sail away
moving on, it's ok
as our unstrung words fly in the air
moving to declare what we have seen
I can't attest, try to be sure
we'll undo this dark ruse

the match was struck at dawn
and moved us towards all that was to follow
all we'd find
the way you look today
the way you looked back then
makes me wonder
times that I knew you before
we fled to the streets and absorbed
this dark ruse
