Album Lyrics:

Where Do You Go At Night

Bright lights, the city calls, tearing your eyes from my sight

Another fight, don’t make me stay home, pulling my heart like a kite,

The knife and rose, I was wounded once, now a scar like a flower it grows

A microphone, you whisper so loud but I won’t be loved like a stone

Where do you go at night, where do you go at night, I don’t see you there, in the space next to mine

City explodes, the stars ablaze though the rocks like me wait below

Don’t’ you know, once this river’s ablaze, the whole damn things gonna blow

Where do you go at night, where do you go at night, I don’t see you there, in the space next to mine

Be Free, Be Free, Be Free…once this river’s ablaze, the whole damn things gonna blow

Where do you go at night, where do you go at night, I don’t see you there, in the space next to mine

Witness

I’ll be the lover too blind to discover the stone

You’re holding it heavy always ready to be thrown

I’m going home a place I’ve never known

I’ll be the witness to the distance you’ve flown

Love is like weather sometimes it’s better alone

I’m going home a place I’ve never known

I’ll be the stranger who kisses your hand from its throne

Peeling the layers with tears that’ll tear to the bone

I’m going home a place I’ve never known

Oh My Heart

By the time that you hear this song I’ll be on a train I will be gone

You’ll be all alone by some telephone but I won’t call my fingers have gone numb

Oh my heart, strange thing, runs faster when breaking

Oh my heart, strange thing, beats faster when breaking

By the time that you realize what you’ve done I’ll be on a plane I will be gone

You’ll be all alone, you with your regret, I’ll be in the air over your head

Oh my heart, strange thing, runs faster, when breaking

Oh my heart, strange thing, beats faster when breaking

Ohhhhhhhhh….my heart…runs fast…falls apart…

Ohhhhhhh…my heart….beats fast….falls apart….

By the time my heart slows down I’ll be on my knees in some new town

You’ll be all alone with your same sad self, I’ll be somewhere new I will be fresh

The Bar

The Bar looks like a jail, the girl looks like a warden

The world’s a black hole at 2 in the morning,

Oh no, It’s friendly tonight, Oh no, the only mortals alive

Save a wife, in some other town, the one with the brown eyes, the one you let down

The Bar looks like a jial, the girl looks like a warden

The bottle is a way to keep from exploding,

Oh no, It’s friendly tonight, Oh no, the only mortals alive

Save a child, now almost grown, the one with the stoney eyes, that you’ve hardly known

I’m gonna write, I’m gonna call, maybe this coming spring, or maybe next fall

I’m gonna change, I’m gonna grow, gonna leave all this behind, hop a train and just go

The Bar looks like a jail, the girl looks like a warden

The world’s a black hole at 2 in the morning, Oh no

There’s a Shadow

There’s a shadow to your right, when you sleep at night

There’s a memory in your eyes when you smile

There’s a rib in your side that once was mine

Haven’t seen that part for a while

I won’t move, I won’t breathe, please, please, please, come look for me

Build your towers tall and make your funeral

We dig our holes so deep, then we drown

There’s no escape from earth, from pants and shoes and work

Only tiny places to get lost

I won’t move, I won’t breathe, please, please, please, come look for me

In the fall when the leaves spring from their trees

In the winter in the flakes of the snow

In the spring, in the meadow, in the flowers in their petals

In the summer’s long broad fields of gold

I won’t move, I won’t breathe, please, please, please, come look for me

Don’t Go Slow

His eyes are red, his cough is full, of bars and years that go too slow.

Her nails are sharp and quick to pull out each heart that goes too slow.

Don’t say goodbye, don’t say hello, just promise me, you won’t go slow

He made her life impossible; she used a knife that goes too slow.

The scars still there from ear to nose reminding them it goes too slow.

Don’t say goodbye, don’t say hello, just promise me, you won’t go slow.

Cause heaven’s hard and hell is full, and inbetween, it goes too slow.

Their prays now tears like rivers flow through the years that go too slow.

Only Stars

Couple hundred years ago man filled a box with coal made the first engine go

Things happened fast from there from cars to planes in the air chasing us everywhere  oh oh

I don’t know what’s wrong or right, I’m just laying by your side tonight

Dreaming of a time when the light was only stars, only stars

We left the land for the store, we left the battle for the war, we built a world of towers oh oh oh

And we’re living longer way up high, but still so fast  the years go by, chasing the wind oh oh

I don’t know what’s wrong or right, I’m just laying by your side tonight

Dreaming of a time when the light was only stars, only stars

So many years and so much change but still one thing stays the same, it’s the only true thing that I know

that’s the feeling in your arms, the blinding light, the thunderstorms,  just like centuries ago

Took a Bus

He took a bus to Minneapolis to see a girl he met on the internet

A trail of crumbs and coffee cups from very single diner since South Carolina

All our hopes are stored…in a world that’s waiting for…

I got on in Chicago, my heart’s enthrall was waiting in St. Paul

Within a year she’d marry me, within a few—a family

All our hopes are stored…in a world that’s waiting for…

And every night I look out of my window with hope

Every night I lay down on my pillow with hope

Most of us don’t move fast enough to beat the devil’s pet, Cruel Regret

Ambition-less, life is passing us, we’re on the bus but were just passengers

All our hopes are stored…in a world that’s waiting for…

And every night I look out of my window with hope

Every night I lay down on my pillow with hope

Every song says I love you, I love you, yes I do

Everyone says I love, I love you, yes I do

He took a bus to Minneapolis to see a girl he met on the internet

Found Religion

Found my lover on the banks of a river I fell in

Married her in church now she’s growing from the dirt of my skin

You can pray or you can play, you can grow or decay, either way it’s the same, I’ll remain in the gray by the banks of the river in the dirt with my lover I call home

Found my religion based on indecision not on bones

Found salvation in the tired faces of old homes

You can pray or you can play, you can grow or decay, either way it’s the same, I’ll remain in the gray by the banks of the river in the dirt with my lover I call home

Found my passion in the wet eyelashes of a child

I mean the screaming for desert and laughing till it hurts kind of wild

You can pray or you can play, you can grow or decay, either way it’s the same, I’ll remain in the gray by the banks of the river in the dirt with my lover I call home

Leave Milwaukee Early

Leave Milwaukee early, through Chicago, you can drive first shift while I pay the tolls

We’ll camp somewhere near a trucker’s hole, then on tomorrow New York, Boston, Baltimore

I don’t mind, let the trains go by, you and I, we can take our time, there’s places I long to be

But the best part’s the road with miles to go, you and me

Finally leave DC for St. Louis arches, within a week, we might be in Texas

We’ll get lost sometime in New Mexico, probably drink too much, you’ll wear women’s clothes

I don’t mind, let the trains go by you and I, we can take our time, and there’s places I long to be…but the best parts the road, miles to go, you and me….

Finally leave for Vegas, California sun, San Francisco Bay, where we’ll see the Funks

From there it’s up to the great Northeast then across the plains and back to the Twin Cities, I don’t mind…let the trains go by, you and I, we can take our time and there’s places I long to be but the best part’s the road, miles to go, you and me

Maybe years from now, we’ll have a house, maybe some kids, we’ll be settled down

That’s a different journey on a different road, different kind miles, a long way to go

I don’t mind, let the trains go by you and I, we can take our time and there’s places I long to be, but the best part’s the road miles to go you and me…miles and miles, miles and miles…

Leave Milwaukee early…through Chicago, you can drive first shift

We Know Things

We know things we’re never told, We love things we can never hold

Minute by minute, you’re crazy you’re in it,

you think it’s all strangeness where to begin it

When the wind stops blowing, the sounds erased is

In the space where knowing has all been wasted and

Wrapped around the quiet we’ve all chased It

Mile by mile, climbing the pile, the crumbling relics, years of denial

When the wind stops blowing, the sounds erased is

In the space where knowing has all been wasted and

Wrapped around the quiet we’ve all chased It

You no longer know, the things that you were told, your love’s the strongest hold, begins in your hands, begins in your hands.

Breath by breath we take what’s left

of the only thing were perfect with

When the wind stops blowing, the sounds erased is

In the space where knowing has all been wasted and

Wrapped around the quiet we’ve all chased It
