Come Back 04:50
Come Back Come Back come back to me Come back Come back come back to me I’ll wait I’ll wait I’ll wait for you
2.
Said & Done 03:35
Every one of you I know has knelt before the code Every one of you I know has feared to be alone It’s not that you can’t see the hole or have a key to turn But you’re staying stuck inside a house that’s set to burn And when all is said and done We’ll wash it away Or sweep it underneath the rug Every part of you is thrashing to become unbound Every bar that holds you in is rooted underground It’s not that you can’t see your face reflected in the pond But that your just standing naked in a forest on fire And when all is said and done We’ll wash it away Or sweep it underneath the rug

Atop the world train I see the whole green thing From up here I see straight down to the river And it’s running like I am I always am… I know what I want to give you I know that it’s hard for you To see me as a man now To trust in all the “strength and wisdom” I thought i had gained Fall into my hands I came here With my grandfather When I was your boy’s age We stopped for a small moment At the roots of the oldest tree We looked above to the geese Flying in Vees They always fly in Vees I know what I want to give you I know that it’s hard for you To see me as a man now To trust in all the “strength and wisdom” I thought i had gained Fall into my hands My little man hands I’m just a little man Just a little human Going on the day Not knowing the way Going on the day Not knowing the way

After the rains made A beach of suburban pavements They breeched our brain waves And left a song of dreams It makes a worm smell It makes a worm smell It makes a worm smell It makes a worm smell After the walls fell And left a pile of colored felts They breeched our brain waves And left a song of dreams It makes a worm smell It makes a worm smell It makes a worm smell It makes a worm smell

Darkness 04:53
I’ve gotten used to the darkness in you And, I’ve gotten used to the darkness in me too I’ve gotten used to the darkness in the sky And, I’ve gotten used to the darkness in your eyes I’ve gotten used to the darkness in your heart Oh, and I’ve gotten used to putting darkness in my art I’ve gotten used to the darkness coming along And I’ve gotten used to putting darkness in my songs I’ve gotten used to the darkness in you And, I’ve gotten used to the darkness in me too So when it comes to consume I’ll sit there and let it do Because I’ve gotten used to the darkness is you You, you’ve got a light You’ve got a light in you Oh, and I I’ve got a light I’ve got a light In me too

When it goes down Cuz it may go down soon When I’m old Too old to move We’ll still have these days Days of floating in the waves Take these to my grave These perfect days You can call me insane And the way I’ve lived It aint tame But lord I’m not ashamed My soul remains engraved On these rocks On this plane Call it astral Call it framed I AINT NO SUCKER IN THE SHADE!
8.
Learning 05:29
I’m learning how to take things slowly So I don’t break down early And leave in my wake A lip of pain No one’s deserving I’ve been counting all my blessings And loving the grace that’s keeping them blessed I’ve been earning trust from people So i can be good people my self We’ll fight off the fear With love-light in our eyes And walk through the dark I’ve been learning how to take things lightly So I can be light We’ll fight off the fear With love-light in our eyes And walk through the dark And walk through the dark

Work It Out 08:00
Oh you don’t have to take a piece of everything that comes your way Sometimes you gotta take your time Oh you don’t have to take advice From everyone that comes your way Sometimes you gotta rest your mind Oh you don’t have To take a bite of everything that comes your way Sometimes you gotta take your time Oh you don’t have to take advice From everyone that comes your way Sometimes you gotta rest your mind I can understand how the word got out Just understand You gotta work it out Work it out Work it out Work it out now Work it out I don’t think selfish is the word Maybe you’re just self assured You don’t have to take a piece of everything that comes your way Sometimes you gotta take your time Oh you don’t have to take advice From everyone that comes your way Sometimes you gotta rest your mind I can understand how the word got out Just understand You gotta work it out Work it out Work it out Work it out now Work it out

Choose Love 05:38
I return From day of working To find you In the sound And through the window I see you play Your moves are sharp And all you are Is all you are I need to know All there is To know about you I fear nothing I’m never afraid Because I’ve been To “the darkest place that there is” Never again I choose LOVE I’ve chosen LOVE It’s all there is All there is All there is
12.
You saved me from my own hell To this day I don’t know how Singing with those ancient tones Plain to see I was all alone with my lonesome howl Lonesome Howl Howl Howl How? All along the river’s edge I was trapped up in my head Singing with those broken bones Plain to say i was all alone But i was saved somehow Saved somehow How? How? How? Give now praise to ancient beasts Of Love and light and rest and peace Finding food out in the sand Now you eat right from my hand You’ll still hear me in the pack Now i know there’s no going back To my lonesome howl My lonesome howl Lonesome howl Lonesome Howl Howl Howl Howl Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
