Track Name: Four No Mi
Mercury's in retrograde, what does that mean?
Saturn's return, when did it leave?
Whether they is, or whether they ain't
we'll clean up this mess, we'll seal our fate.

Coastguard patrols the offshore swells.
The fog rolls in from the banks to the hills.
I don't know what's coming over the horizon.
I'm too old to run, and I'm ripe for the dying.

You got to part ways with your fear.
You spend more time with worry
than you do loving what you hold dear.
You got to get up and fight when they mess
in your mind, tell you it's curtains.
They'll make more every day
cause we all go away
so start living and giving
and do a little sinning.
It's okay to let go.

Not one clock in this house says the same thing
and there's no one belief that will set your mind at ease
the plain old truth: you got to take your lumps,
pick yourself up, and dust yourself off.
Track Name: The Nature of Things
Long ago, there was someone
who had the same dream as you.
There was a darkness,
there was a fondness,
and there's no such thing as me
and there's no such thing as you.

Long ago, there was a place
all too familiar to this
there was nothing left to hold on to
don't you hold it over me
I won't hold it over you.

We come and we go,
we disappear into the unknown.
Well, it's the nature of things.
No unbeliever's misery,
the mystery my heart knows.
Well, it's the nature of things.

In the trees there is a place
where the sun shines through.
All is science,
all is stillness,
and there's no such thing as me,
and there's no such thing as you.

We come and we go,
we disappear into the unknown.
Well, it's the nature of things.
No unbeliever's misery,
the mystery my heart knows.
Well, it's the nature of things.
Track Name: Covered Bridge Tour
You and me
we rode the Oldsmobile
out past the farms and trees
a strange fascination
and is this all we'll ever be?
Dive bars and empty trends
and does it ever end?
And does it ever get any better?

You and me
three thousand miles away
and it's so strange to see
all the covered bridges of our past.
Don't be lonely.
I'm right behind you
and don't you ever say forever
and I ask you.

And does it get any better?

You and me
a million miles away
and it's so sad for me.
I don't know what to say
and I know we'll always be
a strange fascination
in the covered bridges.
Track Name: Spirals and Ringlets
You say you miss me
but you're just bored and high.
You used to kiss me
each one just a long goodbye.

You've caged your angels
now their calling from deep inside.

I sail the coast, love you so.
My armies at the ready
to march onto your shores.
Even if I conquer your body
and your thoughts
if your heart will not hold me
then what I have I got?

All round, the ashes they cover the ground.
All round, lovers they burn straight down.

You got spirals and ringlets
across your eyes.
And diamonds for daggers
they're precious at times.
Ain't looking for investors
you will do what you do
if your heart will not hold me
then what's my next move?
If your heart will not hold me
than what shall I...
Track Name: Motion Pictures
Motion pictures,
I've seen them all.
I watched you rise.
I watched you fall.
Sun in your spotlight
burns the day.
Your shadow lingers
and fades away.

Motion pictures
in black and white,
no sweeter lover
holds the night.
A thousand eyes do overflow
when they watch you go.

They said that you had
gone away,
no hearts to break,
no words to say:
so smile at me one more time
while I press play.
Motion pictures.
Track Name: Candle
Pick out a candle, baby.
Trim the wick.
Let's say a blessing, sister,
before we set fire to it.
We are starless.

Let's watch the shadows, mother,
that flicker on the wall.
Let's drink from the morning, lover,
don't bother to answer that call.
We are starless.

The story always changes
but the ending stays the same.
Change the plot and the players
but the ending...

Here come the angels, brother,
through the portals in time.
Don't trust their motives, children.
Don't stare at their light.
We are scarlett.
We are starless.

Don't know that it matters, baby,
there isn't much time.
That's some wishful thinking there, Mary.
It's the end of the line.
We are scarlett.
We are starless.

The story always changes
but the ending stays the same.
Change the plot and the players but the ending stays.
The story always changes but the ending never will.
Track Name: Cathedral
Let me get a good look at you,
me oh my one and only.
Any old story won't do.
I wanna be.

Sweet as the wolf in the wool
cathedral, your eyes fall upon me.
Your sacrifice is so cool,
I wanna be

as dark as your heart
in the back of your car,
and the strangers light up
and it isn't enough
and I say to myself is there
someone.

Back to the floor and it's true:
the ones who you trusted were crazy.
The owl lines up with the moon
I wanna be

as dark as the skies,
and the holes in your eyes,
and the stars in your bones,
don't it feel so alone?
And I say to myself is there
someone.

Now what are you gonna do?
They're fat and they're
stupid and lazy.
They want you, they want you
it's true:
they wanna be you.
Track Name: Show Baby Tell
Baby tell the morning what you can be.
Baby show the struggle you will be free.
Drive your pick up truck out to the sea
and tell the water, it will listen for free.

Oh fer chrisakes baby why you come to me?
You have more troubles than an orchard has trees.
You hang em high for everyone to see.
If you aint gonna fix it don’t come crying to me.

It's all there before you, just do and don’t always undo.

I heard you like to drive the interstate at night
with you headlamps off, the full moon in your eyes.
It don’t surprise me none you live inside the lyrics
to the songs you’ve sung.
If there's no crash and burn
will there be a lesson here to be learned?
I said baby...baby baby.

Well it's cold out
it's cold outside again
when I’m standing next to you
and the sun is shinning in.

Track Name: Out of Somewhere
You better go back down that road, he said,
and don't you come back soon.
So he followed where the train tracks lead
and burned a silver spoon.

And it's alright
when I'm driving at night
and out of somewhere he calls.
I'm alright
when the night falls.

You better look around yourself, she said,
the streets ain't paved of gold.
She buried herself in conversation.
Easily sold.

And I'm not lying
when I'm driving at night
and out of somewhere he calls.
I'm alright
when the night falls.
