Track Name: Hey, to Clear the Air
Daughters of nowhere, half the time
"It's been a good long while, had a home of mine"
Pay em in dinner and rye, and lies sometimes
I've lived life once or twice, once or twice

Gonna head out west, for weeks too long
Tryin' to find the love you knew all along
Running from the one you thought brought you down
Girl, the sun rises east if you turn around, turn around

Heartbreaker was right, bout that wind tonight

Georgia's right, I gotta say
What's a fleet worth, when the water ain't
Woke this morning, a left of shame
Wish this town had caused the blame

Heartbreaker was right, bout that wind tonight.
Track Name: Fall Back
Fall back
You in your new dress
Curse that,
it's gonna be a big mess

Go find yourself a devil
Knee-deep in the details
Still waxing on your theory: "We're all the same"

Fall back
Where'd you get that silly little notion we're all the same?
Track Name: Break Your Heart
I'm still two weeks from everywhere
You fly a flag, says you don't care

I'll break your heart just for the taste
You right my wrongs when I see your face

You're not here when you're with your trouble
You're not here and who's to blame?

I'm still two weeks from everywhere
You fly your flag, says you don't care

I'll break your heart just for the taste
You right my wrongs when I see your face

You're not here when you're with your trouble
You're not here and who's to blame?

You're out pointing fingers
And I'm stuck out in space
Track Name: Waves (Revisited)
Well, it's as simple as a secret to the setting sun
About as calm as the finger on your loaded gun
Thirsty as a devil or a cactus bud
She comes down to raid the town
Watch the night run

I could use a wave to wash me out

Watch me from your tower in the pale blue sky
You're posted like a raven without wings to fly
The face in the mountain's got nothing to say
He keeps his eyes on the prize of another day

I could use a wave to wash me out
Track Name: Plains (Revisited)
You can hold a barrel to my back
And I'll walk thirty paces towards
Any given sunset

You can take the fire from my lungs
But you'll only spit it back out

We're hungry
We're tired
Tired eyes under cover of the moonlight

We're hurting
Lord, that's for certain
Ousted from the flatlands
Soaking up the moonlight
Track Name: Such a Rush
Tortured is the soul who waits to long
Blessed is the one who bears the burden
I was urged to write a bit of this down

Point your pins near my personality
Waste your water on the fire I keep lit inside of me
How am I suppose to keep it all down?

I'm in such a rush
My mind is catching up to me
I'm in such a rush to take my time

The sun was going down
I've never seen the clouds burn so bright
Well something's going down

Take a ride, ease the clutter
Take a ride, come on and make sense of it all
Take the ride

I'm in such a rush
My mind is catching up to me
I'm in such a rush to take my time

Setting out, rolling heavy on the highway
Getting lost, taking any chance we can find
Tomorrow, we'll all be so fine

These roads we take ain't sacred
Their lines are mapped out all so square
These skies are all we have to share

I'm in such a rush
My mind is catching up to me
I'm in such a rush to take my time
Track Name: Waiting Around to Die
Sometimes I don't know where this dirty road is taking me
Sometimes I don't even see the reason why
I guess I keep on gamblin', lots of booze and lots of ramblin'
It's easier than just a-waitin' 'round to die

One-time friends I had a ma, I even had a pa
He beat her with a belt once 'cause she cried
She told him to take care of me, she headed down to Tennessee
Oh where I'm waitin' 'round to die

Now I'm out of prison, I got me a friend at last
He don't drink, cheat or smoke or lie
His name's Codeine, he's the nicest thing I've seen
Together we're gonna wait around and die
Track Name: Evils
Is it the mild-mannered medicine that's getting you down?
Or the sorry simple subjects trashing their hometown?

Your morals never mattered till you through em out loud
My hands won't stop from shaking, all these evils around

Modern maps don't chart em like the triangle found
or walls they built to keep out all them animal sounds

Save us from our saviors, their batons raining down
My head just keeps on spinning, all these evils around

But how you let us in when most wouldn't offer?
How you kept us honest when most wouldn't bother?
How you let us in when most wouldn't offer?
How you kept us honest when them evils never bothered?
Track Name: Nightfall
Hey there Nightfall, pour me some wine
I heard you laughing through the hill and the pine

You come on soft and make your way
Down the river with yesterday

Hey there Nightfall, pour me some wine
I'm so sick of fighting this old head of mine

Well I could fill you with stories till rise & shine
So hey now Nightfall, won't you spend some time?
Hey there Nightfall, pour that wine
