Track Name: Pictures
I was afraid of coming and going,
caught at the gate, or up in the air.
a little washed out
another wooden boat she said
sailed across the ocean bed
sailed across the water.

they weren't saved
forever floating
caught in a bay,
I don't know where.

she found their picture
it was a little washed out
a little washed out
a little washed out.

don't burn all the coals
I'm coming home early
gonna dry all my clothes
up on a string

and i've got your picture
in a little wooden box up there
I can still smell that air
through all the rivers and the lakes
through all the road's forgotten names.

I wrote a letter and it came back the same
I sent it back in a different way
I drew a picture that I cannot erase
it's a shame.
Track Name: Sasquatch
maybe they walked hand in hand
to bury their truth in the sand,
all of them lovers but none of them hosts
we search for their bones.

I hope they don't find them
cause they'll put them in a prison
ohhh.
in glass and formaldehyde
their children caged by their side
ohh, ohh, ohh.

up in the pacific northwest
they keep fooling the scientists
but one man went further
and he caused a big scene
when he caught her down by the stream.

I hope they don't find them
cause they'll put them in a museum
ohhh.
in glass and formaldehyde
their children froze by their side
ohh, ohh, ohh.

when will these wild men cover their tracks?
their large eyes and big heads
their bellowing laughs.
Track Name: Houses Shake
if you will kill me I will haunt you for very long.
you'll feel something different,
count your money before it's gone.
the houses shake, it's a storm outside
it's a wonder how our friends survive
through these windy times and cold cold days.

the fireflies, hide when the summer dies
their beady eyes, cried.

the power lines kept the folks around
while the snow blows straight across this town
a heavy drift sent us straight to sleep.
the mattress sinks, I begin to think
you did it to get close
in this room with your child hood dreams
your punk band screams.

the owl's life is finding their prey at night
their beady eyes hide.
Track Name: Tell me something brave
wash your clothes today, clean the dirty wall
tell me something brave, you can tell me something brave
but get out of your houses, out of your houses.

make a pot of soup
you can share it with us too
you can carve a wooden spoon, you can carve a wooden spoon.
but get out of your houses, out of your houses
you know that it's not fair to be reminded, oooooh.

stay out of your houses, your confidence shaken
money lies to you while you sleep.
the prayers in his books and the fruit on your table..
Track Name: Tractor and Crane
sales man, I can't afford
all this time, in your store
ooooh, oooooh.

the ghosts will play alone tonight
they are building our new sky
oooooh.

with bullet holes, weapons and knifes
that factory man must clean his eyes
his towers rise and multiply
if they build them up we'll take them down.

a tractor and a crane is all we need,
it's all we need
a tractor and a crane, it's so easy
it's so easy
Track Name: New and Old
the phone will ring one thousand times before it screams
the window pain gathers dust and rain.
the mattress is, much too big for my room.

the lamp light shade, i almost burnt it to the ground
the lamp light shade, slowly turning brown.
I'm glad I saved another day in this house.

can you tell me where I'm going,
as I lay down my head.
waiting for a reaction that i'm sure to get.
this man this body, well it creeps by my bed
familiar voice, familiar rhymes
I think that he is dead.
Track Name: Caroline
you always waste my time
always bring to mind how I could do better.
thats fine.
your shiver shakes my heart
when the ending starts i wont call forgiveness
that's mine.

come into the cold caroline
x3

you wont find me now I'm better than that
you wont find me now I'm better than that
I can't un light the stars for you
I can't un light the stars for you
you wont find me now, these times are fast
you wont find me now, these times are fast
I can't un light the stars for you
I can't un light the stars for you

come into the cold caroline
x3
Track Name: Evil all around
the clouds look like they're going to poor
I think they lost it in the war.
the sun's got something against the breeze
i hear it every time they need to get their anger out.

we tore up all our money on the floor
went to work to make some more
so we could buy some beer.
the graveyard was filling up with leaves
the wind had blown them off the trees,
a blanket for their sleep.

the clouds look like they're going to pour
they built a cover for the door
to block us from the streets.
there's one thing they made real clear
they said that evil's in the air
evil all around.

rain world
help the plants grow tall and strong
so that I can go and travel along those sunlit highways
where the animals died from drivers rage.
Track Name: A love song
a fish got pulled in with the tide
appeared by my feet with one eye,
and the saints would say
send it back,
but the mothers prayed
to keep it's life.

a feather feel out of your head,
fluttering down to the bottom of the stairs.
one day we'll build up those walls,
where the kids shout songs through the halls,
in a fire lit lodge or a barn on some man's farm,
oh in a fire lit lodge or a barn on some man's farm.
Track Name: Coyotes in the commons
forget me now
forget me now
it's just the harsh howl of their calling
surround it till their heart stops beating
just the harsh howling of their calling.

this is not how my life goes
I was not dressed in these clothes
this is not how my life goes
I know I know.

it's dark.
Track Name: Continental drag
continental drag
and nobody cares
but I like to sing

it's a continental drag
and nobody cares
but I like to sing

it's a continental drag
and I like to sing
but nobody cares

It's a continental drag
and I like to sing
but nobody cares
