Track Name: Invocation
Gather the believers,
And all the truth seekers,
We are all lost,
In this dry and thirsty land.

In the midst of a storm
A heart still warm,
Cried out to you

A song transcends on,
The breath of the wind,
It's a lonesome tune

Takers more than givers,
Everyone a sinner,
A face to meet the face,
That you pretend to be

And grow us this hour,
So that we might flower,
And reach toward the sun

Darkness to light,
A gradient of bright,
Slides into another day

But what happens next...
Track Name: Lukewarm Skywalker
My ten year-old self,
Looking in the mirror and
Imagining his youth coming undone

And in an unlit bathroom,
Save for the afternoon sun he searched
The shadows for the man he'd become

Come on give it up,
Worrying for your future son,
Cause time will take its time any way

You can mourn every minute,
And never get lost in one, and you just
Give your tomorrows away

I'm wasting time
With you
We're lifeless on leisure
There's no radiation
I'm sifting through the fog

Come on give it up,
Worrying for your future son,
Cause time will take its time any way

You can mourn every minute,
And never get lost in one, and you just
Give your tomorrows away

When, when you were young,
You caught some teacher's eye,
They put a tag behind your ear,
And sent you back out into the wild

They dressed you in superlatives
And look at you, look at you now
You were the one to save us all
And look at you, look at you now
Track Name: To Whom It May Concern
I can't get you off of my mind,
I tried to burn you down like a forest fire,
I held you under in a lake of red wine
And I couldn't get you off of my mind

And I can't get you out from under my skin,
Like those burrowed fangs and the numbing poison,
Like a six inch splinter in the palm of your hand
It's gonna hurt to get you out from under my skin

And I can't get you off of my brain,
No my mind is running like it's being chased
Not a passing sight from the window of a train
Could get you off of my brain

And I can't get you out of my head,
No you're trapped in my labyrinth
You're a prisoner at my last line of defense
And I'll never let you out of my head

And I can't get you off of my mind,
I tried to burn you down like a forest fire
And I held you under in a lake of red wine
And I couldn't get you off of my mind
Track Name: Dust Jacket
I remember the echoes of hearing supper called
Climbing branch to branch without a fear that I might fall

I had sap on my hands, pine needles in my hair,
If there was dirt on my shirt, Momma never seemed to care
And I love her for that

(But now) This isn't what I wanted
This isn't who I thought I'd be
I used to live in my clothes
Now they do all the living for me
Cause it costs more than money
To look good
Anywhere you may be seen

I remember rolling over the belly of a hill
With my equilibrium struggling to hold itself still

And you are too old now to get grass stains,
Maturity is the right side of the window pane

(But now) This isn't what I wanted
This isn't who I thought I'd be
I used to speak in my clothes
Now they do all the talking for me
I had to work sixteen hours for these jeans
The stitching is fine and the labor was cheap
And it costs more than money
To look good
Anywhere you may be seen

So welcome to the fashion show,
We speak in thread, more than you know
So welcome to the fashion show,
We wear our souls, more than you know
Track Name: Light for You
I'll bet you know it's hard to find,
Keep smiling and saying, "Hold the line"
I hope you know the story's true
Long as you know who's telling who
Out in the night, a light for you
Summer's a demon, Winter's a blade
It's getting hard to tell if we're waving or drowning
I wanna know

I'll bet you hold a lot inside,
I carry twice my weight to see you shine,
But everything seems like something else
And who's to say what's good today

I wanna know
Track Name: Two Dreams
I dreamt of you last night,
In a cabin, in a forest.
A house that felt so familiar,
Friends and kin were, all together
And I couldn’t even sit still
Every room was filled,
With warm faces until.
A sound caused a silent break,
You drove the car in the lake,
And the children were saved.

Open to a revelation
A formulation of devastation
Congregate on the coastline
To see smiles, while there’s time to,
So sad not to be in love
As we circle the sun's
Last revolution
I didn’t think this was how it would end
You cry with your friends,
While the end closes in.

Where have you been Jonathan,
Never there when, it makes a difference,
Always dreaming of failure,
You never wonder, about the thunder
That you hear while you’re asleep,
Placing bets against me,
Subconsciously.
Oh when will you learn to dream,
Of victory,
Just to make you believe
Track Name: Cassius
Painted in blood
With your cheek on the canvas
And a mind's eye ink blot test
Left when you got up

The jaws of life
They will try to consume you
But tell me baby
What's this stain look like to you?

Hold on little girl
Get well soon
Cause this world's got enough
Bad news
Every honest heart
Is pulling for you
What a tragedy
Tears on a face as pretty as you

And you danced with your shadow
While the rung bell hung on the air
From a distant church's chime
The sound waved to you

You'd drown yourself
Beneath the crash of the light waves
But your skin and your life babe
Need some darkness too

Keep your chin up
Just think of Cassius
Cause the King of the World
Was not a killer of kings
Life leaves a path
Trailing behind us
You gotta look back to know
Where you won't go again
You've gotta look back to know
How far you've been
Track Name: Ballad of the Distanced Lovers
Last night I
Slept by myself
And I felt how far you've gone
It's so funny how the things
You're always saying sorry for
Are what I miss most when you are not around

And even if I could
No I wouldn't change a thing
If I had God's hands
No I wouldn't change a thing

And I wait for your call
And I worry for
Your shy eyes and your delicate arms
Oh we all got flaws
And still healing scars
Bleary eyes that greet the dawn

Just live with the best you can
And I'll meet you at the end
Don't keep it in and tie a knot
Every day just pulls it more taught

And even if I could
No I wouldn't change a thing
If I could stop time's hands
No I wouldn't change a thing

And I wouldn't change,
No I wouldn't change a thing.
Track Name: The Importance of Being Earnest Major
If I was a man of the cloth
I would bless every puddle and drop I saw
When the cloud's did form
And the rains begin
Only holy water would
Fall on your skin

And you left town
Like you were coming up for air
Put some sunshine on your face
And let the breeze comb your hair
And you didn't want to prune
In the bath water of home
Headed off toward the ocean where you thought
You might like to roam

If I, if I gave in to you,
Would you have fallen for me
You're on a blanket of blue
In the arms of the sea
Nothing will ever happen, nothing will ever change
If you keep all your love in the hands of fate
And you slipped from my grip like fists full of sand
Like time in a glass falling between my hands

If I was a holy man,
I'd forgive myself for my silent sins,
For my slothful words,
And all those smiles I stole from you
Call this my confession love,
Forgive me too

Heard he put a ring on that finger,
Pulled a promise from those lips,
Took a weight off of your heart,
And put a little swagger in those hips,
And the ones wearing your name
Only remind me of you,
It is the cowards and the gluttons
Who play love's fools

If I, if I gave in to you,
Would you have fallen for me
You're on a blanket of blue
In the arms of the sea
Nothing will ever happen, nothing will ever change
If you keep all your love in the hands of fate
And you slipped from my grip like fists full of sand
Like time in a glass falling between my hands

I hope that you
Know what you do to me
When I call your name
I swear I couldn't see
Track Name: Widow's Walk
Lover each night that comes
I can hardly sleep
Every day on the widow's walk
With my eyes on the sea
The ocean is cruel
And my heart beats achingly
Waiting for my Odysseus to come back home to me
Waiting for my Odysseus to come back home to me

The suitors sing a siren's song
To make me believe
To doubt your return and crash on
The rocks of adultery
My love I have been true
And I can foresee
Your head upon my chest we rest on a bed built from a tree
Your head upon my chest we rest on a bed built from a tree

Each day is a weight on my heart
It beats for no one else
As dust collects around your portrait
Framed upon the shelf
Sediment traces your body
On the north Atlantic shelf
I'll wait as long as waiting takes so take care of yourself
I'll wait as long as waiting takes so take care of yourself
I'll wait as long as waiting takes so take care of yourself
I'll wait as long as waiting takes so take care of yourself
