Track Name: My Backyard
Rumours of a soul vibrate through my bones and down out through my sleeves,
And outside it’s always greener when it’s my backyard,
Elegant and bold, she slips under the finer sheets of satin,
And outside it’s always raining in my backyard,
It happened once, happened twice,

Windy like she blows, the elements might bruise by battered bones,
When the clouds have gone a hunting, the laundry’s being threatened on the line,
In my backyard, in my backyard,
It happened once, happened twice,

And like my father told me, “Find a rose that covers up its thorns,”
When the hornets try to sting me in my backyard,
It happened once, it happened twice,
In my backyard, in my backyard,
It happened twice.
Track Name: Places
I go places in the morning, places I regret,
Walk in through the front door, sneak out through the back of these places,
Not going back to see the faces I left in the past, off to see the faces I haven’t yet met, the faces,
Not going back.

Wake up in the morning, go to bed at night, and never see the sunrise sneak up on your eyes
In your basement, not going back up into the attic, turning on the light, sorting through the pictures, left hand to the right to see the spaces,
Not going back.

I go places in the morning, places I regret,
Walk in through the front door and sneak out through the back of these places,
Not going back to see the spaces I left in the past, off to see the faces I haven’t yet met, the faces,
Not going back.
Track Name: Rest Assured
I’ve said before, you call my name,
And I’ve sworn before and on my grave,
Rest assured, you’ve got it,
Rest assured, you’ve got it good.

I was a child with paint on my face,
Dressed up like a bee on Halloween day,
My heart was heavy, my breath was short,
Rest assured, you’ve got it,
Rest assured, you’ve got it good.

Home on the range with birds in the sky,
My heart full of tears and my throat dry,
The sun in the west, the stars up high,
I held my breath and wondered why,
Rest assured, you’ve got it,
Rest assured, you got it good.
Track Name: Songbird
Obscurity, necessity, come colliding at a point, colliding at a point,
Believe in me my darling, and colliding at a point, colliding at a point,
There’s another word for, there’s another word for “living,”
There’s another songbird, there’s another songbird singing,
And the tune, the tune is trapped in my head while the faucet drips a bit.

Every night I find my way through the same old steps in the same old way,
Believe in me my darling and I can change my ways, I can change my ways,
There’s another word for, there’s another word for “living,”
There’s another songbird, there’s another songbird singing,
And the tune, the tune is trapped in my head,
And the tune, the tune is trapped in my head.
Track Name: Who's Not Loving Who
Her long black hair blends into the background of the song,
The cold thin air, where you’ll be seen talking with my ghost,
As soon as you appeared the daylight had already seen a few,
Offers cross the table over who’s not loving who.

And some might stay while others get lost in the fog,
And call your name just in hope that you might respond.
As soon as you appeared the daylight had already seen a few
Offers cross the table over who’s not loving who.

As soon as you appeared the daylight had already seen a few
Offers on the table over who’s not loving who.
Track Name: You Just Ain't That Buddy
If I were a rock star I’d tell it all to you,
If I was someone who always told all of the truth in my story,
I know that’s the kind of game you play with open doors,
That’s the kind of way you make a warm place cold,
And you just ain’t that, buddy.
And you just ain’t that, buddy.

If I were a trucker trudging down the line,
Backing in deliveries all over the divide,
I would tune into your channel just to hear your voice,
Wonder who you are and wonder where you’re going,
Where you going buddy?
Where you going buddy?

Where did I leave my jacket and where did I put my keys?
I’m on my way from here to all those bigger brighter things.
I’ll write you a long letter when I find something to say,
About all of those other times I should have walked away.
And I know that’s the kind of game you play with open doors,
That’s the kind of way you make a warm place cold,
And you just ain’t that, buddy.
And you just ain’t that, buddy.
And you just ain’t that, buddy.
And you just ain’t that, buddy.
Track Name: Dirty Town
The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer,
I’m stuck here in this traffic, I’ll be home in an hour,
And my dad walked to school uphill and I just roll from the top down into the field.

Trying to move forward, trying’ to move around them,
Sitting on the freeway at five miles per hour,
Then I walk to school uphill, the school doors close to test my breaking will.

Cause I can’t work without a job and I won’t go back to the field, to risk another night up on that dirty rig, and I’ve worked all the dirty jobs, the ones that no one wants to do, the ones that tear that gaping hole inside your soul.

So trying to move forward, trying to make things better,
Holding on for dear life and dinner home on Sunday,
The city’s growing meaner, the country’s growing older,
Just lay down on a mattress and waste away the hours.

And rest up for that walk back up the hill,
To test my breaking heart and dying will,
Cause I can’ work without a job and I’ve got more bills on the way,
I can’t help but feel stuck in this dirty town,
When I’ve got all my life to live, but they only want the rent,
I can’t help but feel stuck in this dirty town.
Track Name: Fairy-Tale
When you were left to your own device, how did it feel to re-institutionalize?
When I was seventeen I came alive,
And she wants me to see her love is no fairy-tale,
And she wants me to be in love like a fairy-tale.

When you were left to your own device, how did it feel to re-institutionalize?
When I was seventeen I came alive.
And she wants me to be in love like it’s a fairy-tale,
And she wants me to see life is no fairy-tale.
Track Name: Help You Fall Asleep
If I pray for you, you’d never know,
If I sing to you it only goes to show that everything is never black and white,
It’s never what you need, but it’ll get you through the night.

Are there memories that hug your fears?
From when you were young before the years,
Spun you all around, like you were hanging on a string,
Until it all unwound, to bring you back where you began, back where you began.

Another time, another way, that won’t mean peanuts at the punch, saying everything at once,
Another dream that’s sailed away, upstream to a dried up bay, hiding deep beneath the clay.

You won’t say anything without a voice,
You won’t be anything, only a ghost,
Until you run head on into the rocks and streets,
Full of speeding cars that help you fall asleep, help you fall asleep.
Track Name: If You Only Knew Me
I wanna see all the colors light up like a tree seven stories high,
If you can’t be sitting with me tonight, I’ll sit alone, sit in the after-light,
If you only knew me.

I wanna see all the colors light up like a tree seven stories high,
If you can’t be sitting with me tonight, I’ll sit alone, sit in the after-light.
If you only knew me.
Track Name: Like Water Races
Hold onto your hat by the side of the road as the wind blows off the bus,
I was looking for love and when I least expected it hit me by surprise,
And I saw runners coming in the corner of my eye,
The seconds turned into minutes,
The days they did diminish,
Before my eyes and to my surprise,
I longed for your assistance,
Struggled with the distance,
I saw your dress, and laid it on the line,
Years they fall, like water races,
Tears they fall, like water does.

Years they fall, like water races,
Tears they fall, like water does.

So hold onto your hat by the side of the road when the wind blows off the bus,
When you’re looking for love and then you least expected it hits you by surprise,
And I saw runners coming in the corner of my eye.
The seconds turned into minutes,
The days they did diminish,
Before my eyes and to my surprise,
I long for your assistance,
And struggle with the distance,
I saw your dress, and laid it on the line,
Years they fall, like water races,
Tears they fall, like water does.
