Track Name: Ribbons of Light
Ribbons of light in the southern sky
Illuminate the great divide
You were always by my side

We felt the weight of the great divorce
The bayonet, the foaming horse
You were my shelter in the storm

The cricket's legs, the summer's teeth
A new decade, a new belief
You were always there by me

You were my strength throughout the course
You were my peace in times of war
You were my shelter in the storm
Track Name: Let Me Know You're Mine
I try to sleep
But my dreams shake me awake
The whole night through
I try to sleep
But I dream about you

Night is all around us
Bottle up the moonshine
Take a pull and then pass
Let me know you're mine

I been helpless on the high seas
Lost and lonesome for a long time
A man can't control his own dreams

Love is just a strong breeze
Blowin' down the coastline
Take it and return
Feel the summer grind

Rollin' in the green grass
Wasted in the sunshine
Goddamn it goes too fast
Let me know you're mine

I been helpless out on high street
lost and lonesome for a long time
go on and wrap your arms around me
Track Name: Changin' Nothin'
Disenchanted demoralizer
You packed yourself a poison pistol
Bend the barrel backwards blindly
Isolate your indiscretion

Keep your cuts and crosses sacred
Visible to all who notice

I feel like I'm light and lifted
I feel freedom from a great weight

I see blindness in your black eyes
A picture of a burnin' building
Waste your chance to change the chalkboard
Scratch your nails down changin' nothin'

Keep your cuts and crosses sacred
Visible to all who notice

I feel like I'm light and lifted
I feel freedom from a great weight
Track Name: Once You Go
Don't you worry yourself at all about where you're goin'
Don't you worry yourself a bit about passin' on
'Cause once you go
You'll never know
You'll never know that you're gone
Track Name: Nothin's Ever As It Seems
A laser beam
A blast of light
A fireball into the night
Up against the wall
Hey it's alright
Nothin's ever as it seems

In Chinatown
On acid
Come out and dance with the masses
We're all in the same casket
And nothin's ever as it seems
Track Name: Dark Creature
You never could fire the ignition
You have laid fallow under snow
You got caught up in the wrong vision
Beware the thief of your hearts rhythms

Inside of you there's a great ladder
There is a seed that you can sow
Inside of me there's a destroyer
Inside of me there's a burnt structure
A thief of time is a dark creature
Track Name: Worried Weather
You serenaded the street September
Put me into a hurried hell
I saw a light but I can't remember
The way you broke that secret spell
Seems like you've opened up some doors that
You never should have

Sunshine
Have I been orphaned by your taste?
Sometimes
I get to feelin' out of place
Can I hide in the shadow of your space and time
Machine of mistakes?

You fall apart into worried weather
And let the lightning curse and crack
I get caught up in the now and never
Bring the time of my blindness back
Seems like you've opened up some doors that
You never should have

Sunshine
Have I been orphaned by your taste?
I can't rely on the sweetness of your face
Can I lie in the shadow of your space and time
Machine of mistakes?
Track Name: Grey On the Horizon
Our ghosts sit in the silos
Forced out and forgotten
We hide where the dust grows
Grey on the horizon

I fell into a black hole
I'll stay for a season
Don't sell me your rainbows

All is dissolution

Strays drift down the dirt road
And scream into the red glare
I never could let go
I always have been there
Tall shade cover still grows
Up in the brooked highlands
Ancient as the wind blows
No one will disturb them
Washed down from the summit
The ingrates and the swaddled
Bring ruin to all sons
Of high times forgotten

I fell into a black hole
I'll stay for a season
Don't sell me your rainbows

All is dissolution
Track Name: Tangled Touch
Archaic and elegant
Light up my cigarette
I need me a pick me up
I'm uptight and outta luck
Oh, absolute evidence
Won't you help me get over it?
Like a rollin' irrelevant
I got some things I'd like to forget

Tongue tied on slippery fang
Tear me back down again
I build myself up too much
Temptin' your tangled touch
Stack up the evidence
To question my relevance
Sever my self control
And let me float on your alcohol

I don't feel the need
To secede from your sympathy
You make me believe
And concede my chemistry
Intimidate me when you bleed that honesty
Burn me down, baby
Gut and filet me
