Track Name: Treading Water
We are a cluster of combination
The rude and weak rule this world
To put it softly, we need salvation
or at least a miracle unfurled

For now, I'll go along with this crazy scheme
Let it be known

Battered and bruised, why doesn't that bother you?
Consciously cruel, why doesn't that bother you?
The drone over the phone won't keep me awake at night
Where is that tech that'll resurrect me, baby

For now, I'll go along with this crazy scheme
Let it be known
I'm treading water in a dream.
Track Name: Cut & Run
Toss a quarter at the station
Killing time, hardly waiting
You sold your clothes,
but you still ain't chose the wine or the holy one
we could sort it out, I do wish that you'd cover up

It's the same old talk in this town
Tell me another one
about how you're going for good again
Always the same talk

I traced my steps around the kitchen
How did one postcard go missing?
If I heard it true, that you fell right thru, that ladder to the clouds
the one we swore we could climb above and kick it out

It's the same old talk in this town
Tell me another one
about how you're going for good again
Always the same talk
Track Name: Surface World
Own the fact that you won't see her smiling face again
Own the harsh reality of permanence
Own the space between the lines as rhythmic lies move me
As a cool collected citizen of the surface world comes to sooth me

And she said, "How could you be so cruel?"
"after all the things you've seen and what it does to me and you"
And she said, "How could you be so cruel?"
Can't you see. You're words so often leaving me.

Own the fact that you won't see her smiling face again
Own the harsh reality of permanence
Tell me lover what does it mean
when i'd rather be living in my dreams
of the worlds end
sorry I didn't mean to offend

And she said, "How could you be so cruel?"
"after all the things you've seen and what it does to me and you"
And she said, "How could you be so cruel?"
Can't you see. You're words so often leaving me.

Angel gives you love
You throw it all away
I'm speaking for myself now
I'm an old soul

And she said, "How could you be so cruel?"
This and that doesn't ever approve and you know it's so true
And she said...yeah she said...she said
Track Name: Power Smoke
Shadows approaching.
You won't notice but
I am old enough to know
that you're going off

Power Smokin'
You're all broken,
you are holding something golden.

Hours to open
just south of Spokane.
Forget what you wanted
and what you've stolen

You're Power Smokin'
You're all broke
and you are holding
Something golden
Track Name: Cold Front
It feels so much like I lost my way
Now I roam around in a cage
This is now a war we made
for so many days

Now it seems the cold front stays
and you ask me if I'm ok
Can't you see that I lost it?
Can't you see I lost my way?

Move me off to a silent stage
with my head still in a daze
moving out of phase
cold front stays
Track Name: Gratitude
Grateful for the sunday after it snows
Grateful Florida and summertime clothes
Grateful for the way you look when you say,
"I want to wake up with you, naked, everyday"

Ain't nobody that can kiss how they spray
that slick talkin' about nothin' everyday
Give me your love in health, keep some for yourself and i'll be grateful
