Track Name: Demolisher
Demolisher
Don’t back out, baby
Don’t battle down
Don’t let the fire hit you

Cuz I keep talking like my rhythm’s off anyway
And the boots that I’m walking in, they don’t mean I’m gonna stay

Demolisher
Don’t get dizzy
Don’t get loaded
Don’t you breathe too easy

Cuz I keep talking like my rhythm’s off anyway
And the mountain that I’m breathing in doesn’t mean I went astray

The bar’s too muggy for a song
My head’s too heavy
Move along

Demolisher
Whatcha gonna do now
Load up on everything
Get dizzy on nothing
Drink your drinks with sadness
Go home and sleep it off
Wake up the next day moaning and crying that you didn’t know what to do

Cuz I keep talking like my rhythm’s all out of view
My diction is fiction but my words are tried and true
I keep talking like my rhythm’s all out of view
I keep holding out dreaming about you
Track Name: On The Wing
We’re on the wing tonight
Picking fruit from the vine
Starved to death
Cuz we don’t know where the fruit came from
I couldn’t see straight
For two years and three months
I couldn’t see fit for myself
But it’s coming like it always does

So put on your big lights
And walk to the big ones
And don’t get stuck in a rut

The town looked alright
A weekend in the wind
A flock made of stone
Sinks to the bottom and rises again
The lake is on fire
Freezing over gates of hell underneath
The bars multiply and decline
Leaving very little room for me

People are pushing
Through all the people that are in their way
Show me I’m gone
I still love the old things
That brought me to where I am today
My life is greater
Than I thought it ever would be, babe

We're on the wing tonight
Track Name: Folded Over
Folded over like a cop car in the rain
And the lightning blurs my sight for days
Am I awakened by the chill of my ceiling fan
Or does it come back to haunt me once again

I am almost dead this morning
Some will die without no warning
When the comfort of life is gone
Just bring to absolution
All the love I had inside
Of my body when it went tonight

No, I won’t stop you if you get up to go
But now I’m seeing double and I’m frozen in the snow
I heard a shot from the avenue and I’m gonna be home soon
Could I really know how far it went or where you’re going to

I am almost dead this morning
Some may die without no warning
When the comfort of life is gone
Bring to absolution
All the love I had in mind
I don’t think I have the time
Track Name: Carry On
Were you left away stranded, away as a child
Left for dead in the wild abyss without being kissed
Were you wakened by werewolves or carpets of ghosts
Filling your glass with abandoned hopes all around
They took off your crown
Was the moon hanging lower in the sky last night
Or was your face brighter than the rest of your life ever was
You’re like that just because

And you break down in the blink of an eye
Your gray tone matter would see me comply
The roots get uprooted and you won’t deny that it’s gone
Carry on

Were you cheapskate-ed lonesome in a feigned despair
Awakened by nothing, the beyond of beware has become
Sad and dumb
Were you wrapped in a blanket and thrown into bed
By the hands of disciples, they often misled you to believe
You are what you need
Are the times that you’re living not worth any of your time
Abandoned by slaves in a cold brick of white that you died in
Your heart is an island

And I get off of nothing but time
Pass through my hands like a cheap red wine
It won’t get all of the love I’ve inclined
But it’s gonna be alright
I’ll carry on

And I get on my two good feet
On all fours I will make it down the street
I get all I would know and you are soaring on
Carry on
Track Name: Best Year
She was the queen, she had it all
A peacock feather in her hair
Sometimes she got nothing at all
Most times that was fine by her

I think I loved her once
I think I gave a little piece
Took the first words that I could remember
And saved them up my sleeve

Could’ve been the best year ever
Instead I gave it all away
Could’ve been the best year ever now
Instead I’m praying for today

She stole the light from the moon
Grabbed my arm and pulled me in
Took me down into her deeper being
Showed me where I could not roam

I couldn’t go to bed last night
The sound of the trains kept me awake
The night falls hard on all things reinvented
Abandons all of my mistakes

Could’ve been the best year ever
Instead I threw it all away
Could’ve been the best year ever now
Instead I’m praying for today
Instead I gave a year away
Track Name: If I Had Some
If I had some
I would give you none
Cuz you turned your back too soon
You don’t deserve this
What I could give you
I had to move everything around in my schedule
Just so I could know the real you

Call me a mummy
Call me a sleepwalker
I don’t do my best in getting back to people
But if you want some
Probably give you none
Gotta get more time than that
To understand my words and where they’re at
Track Name: Girl With A Guitar
Bathing beauties by the lake
Taking swigs from a bottle
Growing older, growing up
Getting further from everything they want

Exxon Mobil cigarettes
Behind the counter you thought you left
You’re just a girl with a guitar
Playing your songs for anyone who wants to hear them

All your friends are still on tour
You’d do the same but what’s it all for
Through the fortune, all the wine
A room with a view, you drink and dream all night

Take a walk through the present tense
Feel all your walls falling
I could save you from all that shit
Work in the goldmine when you know when to quit

You’re not growing up
You’re not growing up
You might think you are
But you’re not growing up

You’re just a girl with a guitar
Playing your songs for anyone
You’re just a girl with a guitar
Playing your songs for anyone who wants to hear them
Track Name: Got A Spine
If you got a spine
Won’t you tell me what you already know
Baby’s bored of this
Give her a coastline on the West and let her go
We had too much to drink
You couldn’t hold me like a lamb anymore
Your smile turned to sand
It went right back to what it was before

If you got the time
Let me know

The grass was greener there
Your arms were open to the air in the morning
I was a child then
I wanted everything laid out on the floor
In an unfamiliar town
The girls wore matching gowns, a line was forming
It was beautiful
I never saw you smile like this before

If you got a spine
If you got some time
Let me know

If you got the time
Let me know

Let me go
Track Name: Cold Like Christ
Pick up the phone, how’d you get so smart
Okay I do, I won’t break your heart
Your prayers are answered, they are so nice
I’d talk to you but you’re cold like Christ

Open the door, let your gold light in
My shoes are worn and getting thin
Tonight the ring’s so sullen, you won’t do
I’d hang around but I’d stick like glue

I can’t go on like this anymore
I won’t go on forever

My stars and stripes wave like leaves that fall
Wade through the times without your call
Tonight you’ll ring your bell hard, it’ll be so nice
I’d talk to you but you’re cold like Christ
Track Name: Coyote
Sing a song about a house
Make the love grow out
Hold the moonlight now with what you know

Don’t go there pleading
It don’t suit you
Coyote going nowhere
I liked you too

Run away from the light
Run away from the dark
Stay alone inside
Curl up tight

Don’t go there walking
You ain’t got no shoes
Coyote going nowhere
I can’t hold you

Hold on my hand
Come into my heart
Sew me up inside
Come a time

You won’t see eye to eye
You block my view
Coyote going nowhere
What’s the deal with you?

Coyote going nowhere
I can’t hold you
