Track Name: no light from the moon
no light from the moon
decided to spend its night on the other side
where you don't have to work
it's like a nap all day
doing what you want to
don't even have to pay

no light from the moon makes it easy
for us to reach on the other side
try to cross the void
i think i'll college try

all you need is holy water
sprinkled on your door
bit of blood from rooster beak
just three drops on the floor

gonna reach out to the other side
gonna reach out to find you

no light from the moon makes it easy
Track Name: the snitch
yes i will live
before the tide
before the waters rose
before your eyes

yes i will wait for you inside the light
you'll never wait for me, i swear it's right

before the round up
before you knew
before the lies had all their fingers in your face

yes i would wait for you inside the light
yes i would wait for you inside the fire

if i'd have known
before you'd gone
and told me all the shit that's coming on the morn
i'd start a movement
and hail your call
yes i would wait for you inside the fire

but i won't wait for you inside the light
without knowing's like i never tried
but i will wait for you beside the fire
yes i will wait for you beside the light
Track Name: river city river
river city river had a funny taste to it
as it flowed like a vein through the streets
all the building owners had a claim to it
you could see it in the blood on their cheeks

everyone's talking 'bout dawn
i like to think it will come

bible beating needles stitched up their side
both saw him over the wall
maybe if they just prayed for him
laid down for him all of their thoughts

everyone's talking 'bout dawn
someday we'll all feel the sun
everyone's talking 'bout dawn
i like to think it will come
how about you
Track Name: down the road
pack your bag and head on down the road
oh the road

don't look back just move on toward the sunset
oh the sunset

fix your eyes and move despite the rainfall
oh the rainfall

there's a girl the next town up with kisses
oh warm kisses
Track Name: give it all
i'm broken but you know that
every step i fail to climb was put there by your hand
and i'm hung over crawling through the day
and i can't feel you

you made me the way i am
coming every time i call but leaving just as fast
oh sure that's my fault

i try to give it all to you

i'm failing and i'm tired
when sleeping i like swimming in the mire
but then i wake up
and hate it because i have to start all over

i try to give it all to you
if i remember i give it all
i try to give it all to you
i swear i try to try
Track Name: tired friend
tired friend there's no quitting when you're at the end
now's the time when he will promise you
there's a point to all this
haven't you paid attention to it

tired friend lay your hair down awhile
mind will mend then it's back into the coal mine
spread from here to there and i do swear
that we'll own one someday

oh someday
Track Name: paging anna
standing at the station calmly waiting for the train
everyone is guaranteed a ride
listen for the whistle as it comes around the bend
ask yourself is it for you this time

engine is drawing nearer
every sunrise
and it shuts you down
ponder as it goes

and it goes with someone close
sooner or later you will feel the full weight of it
whether not you fear to face the wind as it rolls by
whether not you plug ears and tightly shut your eyes

the line is paging anna wise to board
paging anna
anna time to board
welcome anna
anna welcome home
Track Name: mission gate
drew me down on your page
on an evening when the sun won't hang so low
gather wood to start a fire
we'll be feasting 'neath the stars before too long

father hold me down
before i get my bow
and climb the mission gate
set foot into god's world

it comes on top of the morning
quick without warning over the air
you wait down by the river
it's hard not to shiver without telling the air

i see you
do you see me
coming through
the mission gate

father hold me down
before i get my bow
and climb the mission gate
set foot into god's world

gather wood to start a fire
on an evening when the sun won't hang so low
smoke the herd to draw a crowd
giving us a chance to get around and out
Track Name: no angels
pulled you from a crash
bruised and broken
dust and ash
held your hand for weeks on end
prayed to see you on the mend

you're the only one i've seen since the fires went out
thought i'd die alone
suppose i still might
wonder where you've been
did you flee the city
did you see the ships descending from the sky

there're those who thought them angels
of course they were the first to die
this world ain't got no angels

pulled you from a crash
bruised and broken
dust and ash
held your hand for weeks on end
prayed to see you convalesce

you're the only one i've seen since the fires went out
thought i'd die alone
suppose i still might
wonder where you've been
did you flee the city
did you see the ships descending from the sky

there're those who thought them angels
of course they were the first to die
this world ain't got no angels
but you

and i love you more than i can find words for
Track Name: levity has passed
the time for levity's passed
and the nightmare's come full circle
most hearts freeze and begin to crackle
when the crippling breezes blow

duty served is the worst
handcuffed to your day job
if you don't want to grovel
then go pick up that shovel
and dig yourself in a hole

shift change horn never blew
man this reeks of double
artist thing never flew
man that bird straight smacked the window

wiping tears is a gas
with broken callused fingers
if you find some peace in this
then time it as it dwindles
i say time it as it dwindles!

the time for levity's passed
and the nightmare's come full circle
most hearts freeze and begin to crackle
when the crippling breezes blow

duty served is the worst
handcuffed to your day job
if you don't want to grovel
then go pick up that shovel
and dig yourself in a hole
Track Name: dorian
thought it nice to paint my portrait
down with blood and bits of oil
masterpiece is what you called it
masterpiece of shit on oil

picture made me ponder youth now
made me want to keep it all
if youth is wasted on the young
then wisdom's wasted on the old
