Track Name: Just a Game
A statue stands tall
down by the pool-
I'll be there soon
Roots curl around
Armor we stole
And all of those we left
down below
I left a little soon
my back turned to home
and you
On my way to
Lucky 7 star cavern
A statue stands tall
down by the pool-
I spoke too soon.

Toss it down the wishing well
Toss it down the wishing well
Toss it down the wishing well
If I had a wishing well

They wouldn't have told you that love was just a game
I could still see the silence and know just what to say
He wouldn't just ignore you, get up and walk away
You would still tell me when-
oh don't tell me.
oh please tell me-
Track Name: Never Know
On the rooftop till the dawn broke
Never would have thought of this
At least you didn't say to me
"I am lost for good"

Don't be so afraid of it
Oh, don't be so afraid of it
And I thought of all the reasons why this is worth the risk
Oh, don't be so afraid of it

And out by the lake
skipping stones at night
Thinking of all the ways to say
"The miles are now fine to me-
I am lost for good"

Don't be so afraid of it
Oh, don't be so afraid of it
And I thought of all the reasons why this is worth the risk
Oh, don't be so afraid of it
Track Name: Go Forth Alone
Go forth alone
Go forth from home
here I stand with trembling hands
Go forth alone

These cedar walls
Paint chips and falls
sand it down and paint again
Go forth alone

I'll never get to see you
as you might have been
our brightest warmest season
will all be spent
I'll never get to see you
as you might have been
but don't get so low-

Go forth alone
Go forth from home
sand it down and paint again
Go forth alone

I'll never get to see you
as you might have been
our brightest warmest season
will all be spent
I'll never get to see you
as you might have been
I get so low

Whenever I've got to look so far away
I wish to god this weren't the only way
I'm sure I'll feel so far behind
fighting from the other side
Whenever I got to look so

Go forth alone.
Track Name: Letting Go
I'm a little shaky
from the tunes I've been humming to myself all down the line
well I guess I'll have another
please don't say I look thin
I hope the time's been keeping you alive and well

I'm a little lonely
from the road sounds
the trees they look like coral reefs
scraping against the clouds
well I've tried to hold together
but my head just starts to spin
this is me just letting go of it
this is me just letting go of it

and though I can't forget this town
can't forget the years we ran around
scared to let you go
scared to let you know

Now run- back to the restless spaces
a temporary fortress on a headland
and if it should fall, remember-
November 5th at 10pm.
This is me just letting go of it
This is me just letting go of it
Track Name: (Empty Roads pt.1)
Always used to come here in springtime
looked like you'd never believe
Now ashes to ashes, that lonely old foe
holds you closer than time

She said- I don't know what's got you this way
Was it that empty road, oh what did you see

Glancing up, I heard them howling
Can't be too soon
Wind up staggered through obsidian hills by the tombs
And I can't stand every sunless face I endure
as your eyes become clock hands, twist,
and you're gone

She said- I don't know what's got you this way
Was it that empty road, oh what did you see
What we lost, we'll never regain
We weathered so many long nights
Just waiting for day

you'll say
I'm awake- lost and unafraid

you'll say
I'm awake- lost and gone
lost and gone
Track Name: The Escapist
Dont' tell them our disease
Might mend without a seam
Scraps of paper covered up
The war is make believe

All the signs now silent, back to sleep
come tomorrow I'll be free
Businessmen and cartoon tricks
The war is make believe

Oh breathe
Just breathe in the air
the city sleeps at our feet tonight
The war is make believe

With a deal lost, and the enemy on its way
Oh but it might mend without a seam
Track Name: The Smoke and Low
Half past noon
Corner of waterloo
I will run into you
je ne sais pa por quois

to this subtle rush
I can say "soon enough"
see you at fourth and mark
outside the smoke and low

the broken string
corrupted all the chords
we heard the song as ne'er before

Half past two
grinning from something new
pilots with poison darts
outside the smoke and low

in the stop and start
beat of insurgent hearts
guarding the careful spark
beyond the smoke and low

and despite the racket
oh let it ring
that long forgotten song

damn the odds and run the gauntlet
far past all decay
or be another story someone tells

and despite the racket
oh let it ring
that long forgotten song
Track Name: So Long
Who knows where I'll be when this is through
But darlin, I hope that I'll be with you

Oh, and I get so tired
Like I never did
by those eastern mountains

I am just an ordinary man
who did what I could
What more could I do?

Oh, I was on fire
down endless roads
locking eyes with strangers

They were all just ordinary
And we did what we could
The secret light we kept so careful
Spread it where we could
What more could we do?

Like so many times before
I'm walking out that open door
So long
Though I've done all I can do
I cannot say I won't miss you but
So long

I'm just scared I won't get through
They'll say so cold-
"I think he knew"
But for the first time in my life
I'm coming home
Track Name: God Damn My American Heart
They'll never stop at nothing
Till we're at the end
Wake up. Turn out. Fall in.

Blessed are the nameless
Us ordinary souls
Will all pass through unchecked.

Rewind the machinations with a steady, simple hold.
Unbreak. Grow old.

And if we tear it down they'll just
Just build it up again
Someday when we tear it down, we'll build
Build a different end

Scatter all the seeds
The shit they spread will only make the harvest more complete

And if we tear it down they'll just
Just build it up again
Someday when we tear it down, we'll build
Build a different end

The spider's in the cradle and he's ready to strike
It's already happened, but might be alright
And as our fever breaks we'll change our skin for bark
Oh don't you worry sir
It won't get too dark
-too dark too soon.
Our roots will spread and crack the pavement oh-

Scatter all the seeds.
Smile and wait for spring.
Track Name: Gone Away
oh and I can't shake
those younger days
when we all sang with one voice
and one voice led the way

gone away
gone away
what becomes of me and you

and though it's been years now since i talked to you
used to feel you by my side in all i'd do
though confusion in the words so much
I still miss it quite enough
but what do I miss there if it was true

gone away
gone away
what becomes of me and you
Track Name: (Empty Roads pt 2)
Remember our yard and the light
the snow still falling
staring up at the sky
and you were inside
looking out from your room

Held back tears
and the pride from so many years
now I'm gone
each moment passed
I'll begin (?) (andy??)

And I'll light a candle for you
as you light one for me

All the stars in the night
our back on the lawn
I was too little to climb
down the hill, you took my hand

And I'll light a candle for you

As I walk along this empty cold road
blinded by the sleet and snow
I wonder if I'll ever go home
back to what I used to know
