1 Sleeping Ute

Dreamed the long day just wandering free, though I’m far gone you sleep nearer to me, If i could find peace, if this night leaves, but I can’t help myself. So i’ll walk out these wandering dreams, up the north road dressed gold and green, If i could lie still as that great hill, but I can’t help myself. Well it’s calm and it’s clear, collapsed here on the stone, Delivered to this place, a vision dark and cloaked, and those figures through the leaves, and that light through the smoke, and those countless empty days made me dizzy when I woke, and I live to see your face, and I hate to see you go, but I know no other way than straight on out the door, and I can’t help myself.

  2 Speak in Rounds

If I draw you upside down I can let go, leaves my mind at ease gives me something to focus on, could I be alone? Could i be alone? If I speak in rounds for a while letting my tongue swell, I’ll be sure to try and explain myself to dispel, blame it on the day, blame it on the day. Step down just once learn how to be alone, come get what’s lost what’s left before it’s gone. But what makes each step worth the time and regret still shows, in the cradle of my unruly jest you belong, take it as it is. Make another fist. Step down just once learn how to be alone, come get what’s lost what’s left before it’s gone.

4 Yet Again

Yet again we’re the only ones, no surprise this is often how it’s done. Lately it’s about all I can take, I will move and mend and mold this break. Shell with another crack, I’m small but I can keep track. Too soon everyone just step away, I’m sure this isn’t the last play. Take it all in stride, speak don’t confide, we barely had a case. it’s done before we try, stop and end by night, a desert in your face. Take score even playing fields this game, I know when all’s said we’re the same. If I could I would leave it all be, no chance to move backwards and see. Take it all in stride, speak don’t confide, we barely had a case. It’s done before we try, stop and end by night, a desert in your face.

  5 The Hunt

Prove it all to me, check again to see. Leave me with no words, if you call again it’s absurd, and I know I’ve made it all a lie, shuffled back and forth it’s only in my eyes, and I always want to rescind everything I bought into there’s no name. Fool me once it’s fair. The floodgates need repair. I count on you and why, there’s nothing there besides, and I want to hide it all away, taking back all of the silly things I used to say, and I’ll give you all of my time, because I’m foolish and never know how to resign. Another back and forth turn around, one that makes no sense but it feels good anyhow, and I’ll leave it all as it should be, where you are you and I stay me.

  6 A Simple Answer

Those saints in lockstep, all crossed the wasteland, forever gone, they’ll hum and walk along, plod ever onward, across some tundra, the light is long, but it’s not long before it’s gone, well fine. And it calls you back to mind. at once, at last, oh goodness mercy mine, soldier on, but please not so long this time. Too young and thoughtless, to calm your memories, I know it’s wrong, just give until it’s gone. Some tired mantra, calls ever onward, shout it loud, just make it up somehow, well alright. And it’ll call you back to mind, at once, at last, oh goodness mercy mine, soldier on, but please not so long, this time. Move on let’s face, that all you trust is a cynical phrase, no time no place, when all you hope is that everything breaks, no wrong or right, just do whatever you like, no wrong or right, just do whatever you like, no bliss no light, tell me it’s all just a lie, you can’t scare me none, I’m still the lucky one.

  7 What’s Wrong

Talk to yourself, please make your mind up, is there anything left at all? Everything all at once, and I might, leave you two times, so dark my eyes. I never leave the light on, please make your mind up, weary when I do us wrong, but we try, everything all at once, and I might, leave you two times, so dark my eyes. cloistered from yourself, you never even try, best just lie down, and close your eyes for once, before your will just goes. Surrounded by the throng, a mounting wave of sound, the clamor breaks me down, the ground beneath me gone, the sky might open up.

  8 gun-shy

The sky keeps staring at me, frozen in my tracks, nothing else to see, and when I move my face left, you’re always standing there, a shadow I can’t see, and even then I can’t trace, you’re walking away. I put my ears to the ground, always pushing down, nothing I can hear, I found the worst half in me, I’m cut off at the knees, can’t even take a stand, against your words and beliefs, we didn’t want to freeze.

{All of the years, leaving me here, gun-shy, the pain, losing my aim, and why, haven’t we changed? Story to blame? Recite, all of my wrongs, you know it’s wrong, you smile.} I don’t want to say it all again, I never seem to see, and why? Do I always feel it all the same, the blisters in my eyes, recite, a guide that has only led me stray, and even as I limp, you smile. The cold keeps tearing at me, slowing down my blood, unable to speak, I left my mind long ago, choosing something false, always letting go, and when I try to face you, you’re walking away.

  9 Half Gate

Past the roaring shore, I have nothing left to hear. I’m chasing all the words, but everything you say I only see. But honestly it’s fine, when I mention how I love you, it’s all I do, even as I stray. We have the cold to keep, I’m not sure I still believe. My most is nothing more, than a place we’ve been before. We’ll draw and drag it on. I’m telling you I’m trying to hear this out, I want nothing more to doubt, a little bit of shame. Which of yourselves is truly gone? And checked out so long, unhinged unwound, come help me on, to let lie what’s done, in some great beyond, you’re still there still as you were. At the end of the line, it’s as if there’s no time at all. Nothing to left to win, every pleasure burned to the wick, content to be alone. A quiet picture drawn each day before it ends, to remind me once again, why I’m even here. Which of yourselves is truly gone? Checked out so long, unhinged unwound, come help me on, to let lie what’s done, in some great beyond, you’re still there still as you were.

  10 Sun in Your Eyes

You’ve fallen once you’ll fall again, and lean on, your tired hands that crawl and grasp, the soft ground, by the look on your face, you set out on a path, never to arrive, by the look on your face, the burden’s on your back, and the sun is in your eyes. Stretched out far and wide, the light that scorched the sand, so bright so long, I’m never coming back. And every stone and every step, I won’t recall, emptied out of every thought, just soft ground, by the look on your face, the burden’s on your back, and the sun is in your eyes. Gone at last, stretched out, far and wide, the light that scorched the sand, so bright so long, I’m never coming back. It overflows, it overflows, it always runs, it overflows, it overflows, it always runs, silver and silent, endless abundance overflows. Silver and silent rushing on , endless abundance overflows, always surrounds you always glows. Look on your face, burden’s on your back, sun is in your eyes. Stretched out, far and wide, the light that scorched the sand, so bright so long, I’m never coming back.
