Track Name: Pilot
We've got each other
We've got everything
As friends and neighbors
We'll never grow apart

In times of trouble
You've got a shoulder to lean on
In the laughter and love we share
Track Name: Born To Follow
No sunshine for a long time
Jet black on a dead man’s hog
Gonna bleed my working knuckles
While she sleeps I’m moving on
One day I’ll do some turning
Turn back into myself
Until then I’m breathing empty dry dust into my lungs

Las Cruces
With a fist full of ones
Broke down that train
And I’m riding a one track mind
For a long time going to nowhere

Six days my dog’s been itching
Red spots and got no claws
Just read the Constitution
And found it’s full of flaws
Black straps and silver buckles
Chrome cap to fry my brain
Two shots and a side of bacon on the stove with a hard boiled egg

Fort Stockton
Two pennies to none
Broke down that train
And I’m riding a one track mind
For a long time going to nowhere

You’re sifting through the wreckage
In the swamps of New Orleans
That lady woke up drinking
Killed the bugs on her windowpane
One day I’ll do some learning
And learn to trust myself
Hitch a ride for a western sunset where they told me all was well

A cloudless sky
Drops of acid rain
Broke down that train
And I’m riding a one track mind
To the end of the line where I’m born to follow
Track Name: Never Miss
Spread that dead ring can of worms
Over yellow eyes
Watch them struggle writhe and turn
Without winning odds

Butterflies and roses on the prairie go round
Daisies and hypnosis send us spinning down

Prime time on demand
Line up salivating
Their world is your tongue
The taste captivating

Take a hit of gasoline
Back wall photograph
Red light market value queen
You will never miss

Dig the truth from under solid ground is ocean
Turn the dial and here the empty silent motion

Prime time on demand
Line up salivating
Their world is your tongue
The taste intoxicating

There's a little painting of you on the wall
There's a little piece of it's art in us all
There's a little price that no buyer will find
The recurring condensation of time

Time

Waiting
Track Name: Salt & Rust
Another winding road across the rolling hills
And I'm the turning wheels
An argument over words red light of caution turns
Another dead end reel
A waterfall in your eyes is waiting to surprise
Evading compromise
Protest the stoner witch and spin the greatest hits
Indulge a final supply

Backing Verse:
Old age does rot away the bones
Telling us not to die alone
Blue is when I take a day to mend
Stuttering living on again

When I feel it cutting through
Never seen this side of you
Bleeding lost and sent off blind
Waste of time

The black and white turn grey the forty five replays
And I'm your hall of fame
The fortress of wonder blocks brought down by chicken pox
The slow invasion of games
The salt and rust revised a June bug in July
A fingerprint in the sky
A shopping cart full of dreams on a computer screen
The ones and zeros reply

Backing Verse:
All I say is habits ground in stone
One more dose not to die alone
Reason why wishing to an end
Shuddering waking up again

When I feel a life less true
Is when I'm looking straight at you
Bleeding lost and sent off blind
Waste of time

And the stairs will take us all the way
We'll be leaving another day
Where my time is my time
And your time is my time
And all time is mine all mine all mine
Track Name: Isobel
In a forest pitch dark
Glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into flame
Like me
Like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

In a heart full of dust
Lives a creature called lust
It surprises and scares
Like me
Like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse

nana na nana
nana na nana

In a tower of steel
Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Like me
Like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
Track Name: Survey The Remains
Survey the remains

Lost far beneath distant sands passing time
Take the last stones of the land from their hands
And let the edge winds lie
Pure water soul is the slow kiss of death
Wide wake enough to clear the dust from my throat
And catch a silent breath

Cleanse and clear away
The history of misspelled age
A suit of nails to fake
Your creed cost only everything
Drip down the vine
Of what defines the pseudo story of mankind
"They who enter this sacred tomb shall swiftly be visited by wings of death.”

Strange white and cold living old in the know
Calm break of stroll rotting soul just below
The tongue that spits it out

Cleanse and clear away
The history of misspelled age
A suit of tales to take
Your scrolls our wisdom to impeach
Drip down the vine
Of who decides a last man standing left to die
“They who enter this sacred tomb shall swiftly be visited by wings of death.”

Buried short and thin over bite infected
Murder at nineteen cryptic heeding
Blemish on the face of time
Alter the fast forward and rewind

“It is I who hinder the sand from choking the secret I am for the protection of the deceased.”
Track Name: Stop Scratching
Wake up (I’ve got to find it)
Walk on (it’s out of reach)
Waiting (to gain the upper hand)
Taking (what’s calling me)
To an end

Red Sun (The ancient theft)
Bare Face (and blistered hands)
Scratching (for life and limb)
Fleeting (so far away)
Till the end

Broke my real put it out of time
Wrist cut watch back turning water to wine
A current feeling piss off the side
Guest of honor all our feelings denied

Fur Coat (the odor of age)
Left Turn (the falling stock)
Waiting (progress a middle name)
Taking (what’s calling me)
To an end

Red Sun (the falling sky)
Bare Face (and knuckles white)
Scratching (the swollen tongue)
Bleeding (all that’s left)
In the end

Broke my real put it out of time
Wrist cut watch back turning water to wine
It's so revealing piss off the side
Guest of honor all our feelings denied

Waste away waste away
With the part time
Plans you make
