Track Name: push theriver
they broke your heart into pieces
more pieces then a heart can be made from
Leviathan the whale, circumspect in jail
just like the seed that you came from

Don't push the river
don't tear at the seams
don't stand at the canyon
the edge of perilous dreams
when we rebuild we build anew
that means we start from nothing
Don't push the river
it can flow by itself
you question existence
like any book on your shelf
when we rebuild we build anew
we start again from nothing

the days run away, as the pendulum sways
every bone in your body was put there to break
time's just a trap, a slap on the back
a curious abstraction, innocent distraction
don't twist your spine, don't hunch your back
don't wait for answers, learn how to react
don't furrow your brow, don't grimace and sigh
a daily reminder of the beast buried inside

Don't push the river
don't tear at the seams
don't stand at the canyon
the edge of perilous dreams
when we rebuild we build anew
that means we start from nothing
Don't push the river
it can flow by itself
you question existence
like any book on your shelf
when we rebuild we build anew
we start again from nothing
Track Name: wind still blows over savannah
I've been strumming these chords for my whole life
finding a sonnet in each sunrise
while still singing you praise for the darkness
it's tiresome, if I can be honest

I have been living too long your doorstep
trying to break into your fortress
longing for simple words of conviction
but you always trail off at the end of each sentence

surely, there's a cure for this madness
I could join the mystic revival in the mountains
or travel the world in one of your spaceships
lay down my fortunes like Bukowski at the races

when living is just a series of disappointments
and love is just an idea that we poisoned
Maybe I will find you after I conquer this cancer
when I speak to the void and it answers

the wind still blows over Savannah
and I still don't know what I'm after
like a sturgeon is unaware of the river
I think you were sent here to break down my filters

(hold on... these days don't betray what's still to come...)

I've been singing these songs for my whole life
born from the shadow and the dim lights
it's not a muse or Euterpe that I search for
my resolve is not a relic of your cold war

I make my way through the trails and the cliff-falls
across the country divided by great walls
beneath every monument erected to malfunction
it seems we're all here searching for something...

but the wind still blows over Savannah
the heart still beats faster and faster
like any rose that's unaware of it's beauty
I think you were sent here to cure me

(hold on... these days don't betray what's still to come...)
Track Name: there will be days we know surrender
if the wind could lift me from this body
raise me up as the clouds are parting
and the sun was breaking for me

i would sing your song so clearly
every corner of the earth they'd hear me
and in my song I name you my queen

one day when the oceans rise up
and each of us becomes an island
I would swim the globe to find you

there will be days that are against us
there will be times when we can't stand up
there will be miles that lead us nowhere
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender

if my voice could rise forever
reaching up to touch the heavens
i would call your name out on high

but when the sky erupts in lightning
and all the world around is frightening
i will look to find strength in your eyes

and when the night surrounds us finally
we all walk into the darkness blindly
i can always count on your light t

here will be days that are against us
there will be times when we can't stand up
there will be miles that lead us nowhere
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender
Track Name: a lesser known paradise
when day breaks the sun escapes
clutches of lesser known worlds
and light comes to us unfurled
the birds here of this lesser known paradise
greet the newfound world as a newborn child might

the sun kisses your face as we make our way up the hill, and the trees create a frame for the sea as the horizon opens up and we confront our deepest desires and our fears are forgotten for the moment

if it's a dream may we never wake die or retire or sink below the waves may we never feel sorrow, may we never know grief
if it's a dream may we never leave

rain at the window as the storm moves in
under the eaves of the house the swallows shelter in
like any other creature of this earth we all prepare for the worst
take comfort in each other as the thunder clouds burst
the sun makes it way like a slowly departing guest
under cover of clouds inching further west
there is more to discover then an explosion of colors
obscures our goodbyes as a parting gift

if it's a dream may we never wake die or retire or sink below the waves may we never feel sorrow, may we never know grief
if it's a dream may we never leave
if it's a dream may we never wake die or retire or sink below the waves may we never feel sorrow, may we never know grief
if it's a dream may we never leave
Track Name: devil's tower
the devil's tower in Wyoming
parking lot full of coyotes
never bled so red
might as well have painted the floor
and the chorus sounds
just for your pious soul

a yellow sundress and her hair in braids
freckles on her cheeks and our plans were made
got in the car and aimed for the setting sun
reborn again as two lovers on the run

well the cops got called and the paramedics came
the sheriff got my plates from a bystanders claim
saw our first set of cherries outside Sheridan
not proud of what i done but we needed a new gun

made it to Billings before the sun rose
Livingston, Bozeman, Butte just up the road
found an old dry creek to lay low and wait
counted 13 patrol cars on the interstate

Now, Angie was scared and she started to cry
told her it'd all be ok, we weren't gonna die
from a dingy little motel with walls all painted pink
rust stains in the shower and a cockroach in the sink

stole another lil cruiser and drove to Spokane
now we're heading up north up Canada way
Angie hasn't spoke a word to me all day
she wants to call her mom but I told her that wouldn't be safe

sped up on a roadblock just before Colville
came outta nowhere just over a hill
shotguns drawn over a concrete barricade
slammed the car in reverse as Angie - she just prayed

the devil's tower in Wyoming
parking lot full of coyotes
never bled so red might as well have painted the floor
and the chorus sounds
just for your pious soul
Track Name: broken bottles and promises
daylight breaks without barely a wink
like the body in the alley there's still blood in the sink
it's been a long night we ran this city dry

i've been living like a fugitive, hiding out from friends
packing my belongings, think the feds are closing in
i've done a bad thing you've always been a bad thing

and tonight we drive like we're on the run
broken arrows and a stolen gun
escape to some far off coast
with your ghost...

your dreams are unlikely and your fantasies are cheap
burnt out on chances, the well only goes so deep
the past will catch up things are always so messed
up broken bottles and promises,
broken bones and long nights
sad little speeches from sad little eyes
think we've got a problem we come here too often

and tonight we drive like we're on the run
broken arrows and a stolen gun
escape to some far off coast
with your ghost...

daylight breaks without barely a wink
staring at ceiling i've been trying to sleep
you've always been a bad thing just another bad dream...
think i've done a bad thing
Track Name: quiet mansion
midnight, I hardly know you
the hour of things to come
the stars here all are frozen
in praise of the coming dawn

you barely noticed
when the last light died out
and the colors seeped in from the gray
we all pay our dues
in the dark so deep
and wait for these things to change
our bodies awake...

this home here is a quiet mansion
a fortress for the things you own
one day all that you value
will rise to take their toll

you barely noticed
when the last light died out
and the colors seeped in from the gray
we all pay our dues
in the dark so deep
and wait for these things to change
our bodies awake...

in the forest there's a chorus and it's rising
singing naked in the dirt and dead leaves
the fire pulls the dark from it's hiding
but it's secrets never speak and it's silence never leaves

you barely noticed
when the last light died out
and the colors seeped in from the gray
we all pay our dues
in the dark so deep
and wait for these things to change
our bodies awake...
Track Name: undiscovered problems
I saw they’re loading your boxes
Guess the markets ran dry
Time’s not a conscience decision
It’ll pass you by

Lately I’m just cutting my losses
Watching the waters rise
Missouri or maybe Wisconsin
We could set up a new life

But the sun will break through those branches
And the light will lift your eyes
We’ll get the money straight someday
Give it time

Spent all our wishes
Used up our resistance
But we’re still getting by
Hold on to convictions
As dear as addictions
We can only give it time
The light breaks in your eyes

Traffic outside is a constant
Backed up heading west
Everyone runs from the problems
We haven’t discovered yet

Silence settles in the apartment
Like a dust it hangs in the air
It may be the only thing honest
Left in here

I’ve said some things I regret
And I’ve done much worse
I’m still hedging my bets
Who will come back first

Spent all our wishes
Used up our resistance
But we’re still getting by
Hold on to convictions
As dear as addictions
We can only give it time
The light breaks in your eyes
Track Name: wolves
the wolves they follow me
in the dark they stalk my wounded heart
the wolves they follow me
in the dark they stalk my wounded heart

I don't want to go home tonight
I want to sleep outside
Leave a trail of blood to my bed
breadcrumbs scattered in the night

I don't want to rest my bones
until I can meet their eyes
see my fear reflecting there
see that dark, in the dead of night

the wolves they follow me
in the dark they stalk my wounded heart
the wolves they follow me
in the dark they stalk my wounded heart

it's been so long since I've been home
don't even know where that might be
it's been so long since I've felt so strong
lately I'm walking with the beast

now the sky it opens for me
and the night may never end
the plains roll out before me
like a kind prayer from a friend

the wolves they follow me
in the dark they stalk my wounded heart
the wolves they follow me
in the dark they stalk my wounded heart
