The Same Moon You’ve been away for way too long You left Alabama all to her own As you roll in you see the same signs The same blinking light that cuts through the night You stop by the bridge that crosses the water That took your father and you show your daughter Sleepy and sullen head to the window Hair all entangled she gazes below Everyone says you’re still the same Everyone says you haven’t changed But you know that you’re somebody new Your mother is waiting smoking and fretting Out on the porch with her cigarettes You’re past the point of pointing your finger She reaches to hold you and you just let her The place is a mess like when you left You take it all in and pull at your dress Around every corner you worry he’s waiting Your face falls so flush you’re feeling crazy Everyone says you’re still the same Everyone says you haven’t changed But you know that you’re somebody new You pick up your daughter go for a walk Remember these woods even in the dark The moon through the trees the light in the branches All of the things you took for granted She’s gone to sleep a sack in your arms Back at the house you hand her to mom You want to say something break through the silence The overwrought history deafening sadness Lying in bed with the moon in the window The same vacant hole you once wished to fall through You hold your hand up to block out the light Finally realize you’re home tonight

Blackened Air I was in trouble I was a mess Convinced that it was something I had said You and your brother waking me up Shaking me out of bed getting rough Woke up tied to a maple tree You were asking if I believed I could use a glass of water Or something just a little bit stronger A history of bad decisions All of which I swear with good reason Keep that flashlight from my eyes There’s a full moon on the rise I was a liar I was untrue Convinced that what I did I did for you Perfect is a trap the enemy of good I will do my best just pull me from these woods Cut my ropes free these hands I’m sure that I can make you understand In this air this blackened air I will scream my name for you lord I swear Here below the stars above As I feel this coursing blood Claire my love call your brother Tell that him that your troubles are all over I won’t speak of this dark night Promise that from here we’ll be all right Take me in your arms like I’m a child I can’t bear to be reviled

Skin and Teeth Running through the trees Sparklers in your hand Everything you are Laid out like a fan Call up to the stars Pretend that they’re your friends Wishing to yourself This night will never end x2 Distance makes it better Though it’s not forever Breathe this night inside you Maybe you’ll decide to stay Lying in the leaves Ear to the ground Listening for a signal The sign is all around All of your intention All of your desire Bundle it like kindling Set it all on fire x2 Distance makes it better Though it’s not forever Breathe this night inside you Maybe you’ll decide to stay Everything you are Muscle and scar Skin and teeth Yours to keep Tonight you’re gonna see What I mean

Left 02:12
Left Is this really all that’s left for me A set of ugly plates and a Ficus tree You were the opposite Of everything I needed When I said I didn’t have regrets I guess that it hadn’t hit me yet I’m watching the weather channel Sorting through cassettes I never go outside I’m not sure why I’m painting these floors But I’m pretty sure I’ll end up in a corner Do you remember The bird that sat outside Watching us through the window The one with the missing eye I swear he’s back again Sitting on the neighbor’s fence Singing that silly song for you Looking kind of thin I never go outside I’m not sure why I’m painting these floors But I’m pretty sure I’ll end up in a corner
5.
Conversion 03:14
Conversion I always wondered how long it would take Before you got your head out of his ass You compromised and reconsidered everything But everything you were was in the past Guess that you were somehow unfulfilled You said the light had hit you in the eye I don’t know a thing about you now Never even got to say goodbye The way you kissed my mouth I knew what you were about When you touched my head I knew I’d be in your bed Growing up in the bible belt You never took to heeding the call Somewhere in your brain there was a seed You said that never caring was my flaw I watched you through the window of the church Pining so god damned hard that it hurt I watched you as you stepped into his car Somehow it seemed more than it was worth The way you kissed my mouth I knew what you were about When you touched my head I knew I’d be in your bed
6.
Scars 02:35
Scars Counted and compared our scars in the light of fire Underneath the brilliant distant stars I had more of them but you the longest Running from your belly to your breast Everyone had gone to sleep But we had barely shifted in our seats You told me about your friend back in Michigan Didn’t want to hear about him I was wishing for a secret magic watch That somehow made time stop Everyone had gone to sleep But we had barely shifted in our seats As the sun crept through the trees I traced a line foot to knee And all the way back up again We haven’t spoken since Still I sit transfixed Amidst those lofty pungent pines
7.
Deer 02:42
Deer There were deer in the trees By the road as you neared Riding your bicycle Held their ground as you drew close And as though you’d seen a ghost You stood rapt as a rock Seemed to you they knew a secret And were determined to keep it Everything you once believed Scattered far like the leaves You’re on shaky ground Call the deer with your eyes Whisper please apologize Beckon them to reveal They turn quietly and walk All their secrets still intact
8.
Glitch 02:35
Glitch There’s a light in the sky That shines in your eye Takes me a moment to recognize You’re aware of a switch But you can’t control it It’s crash a hiccup a glitch All the things different types That wander through your life You can’t control them tonight Please don’t be this way… with me Walking through these woods in the rain Thoughts and feelings cluttering your brain Try and find the quiet again Let it all seep into your skin
9.
Packing 03:44
Packing Brown rotary phone answering machine Some sea glass from Newport beach Box of medals from the Vietnam war Dusty plants on an orange carpet floor Things that used to comfort you Now make you uncomfortable Deciding what to toss and what to sell But there’s nothing here you would keep yourself Pull a photo from the bedroom wall Your mother on a pile of straw And your dad on a blurry mare And the wind like a fire through Texas air You hardly remember it’s been so long You wanna call someone but everybody’s gone So you buy a bottle and sit on the porch Watch the cars slide heading to church You forgot about the winter snow Haven’t ever seen it in Arizona Everything that you ever were Growing moldy in this arcane world Pull a photo from the bedroom wall Your mother on a pile of straw And your dad on a blurry mare The wind like a fire through Texas air You’re a codger like father you don’t listen Everybody says you’re quiet and distant Still you wish you had been here at the end You’ll never have another chance again

Everything Falls I wake you up I know you’re scared It’s the third night in a row Bad dreams sweaty hands Let’s just sit and watch the snow falling all around When it’s light I’ll call in sick I’ll make some soup we’ll watch tv Maybe we can take a walk When we get home we’ll share some tea I’m not tired of caring for you I’m not tired of being with you Everything falls everything burns We’ll see it through Everyone leaves everyone dies I want to die with you
11.
Tired of Wishing You saved your beer as you fell off the stool In Red Bill’s bar across from your house Your so called friends only want you around When you’ve cashed your disability check And there’s nothing that you do that you don’t regret Falling asleep as you’re watching TV Eating frozen food from the fridge You haven’t seen your daughter Jolene Since she turned twenty-two You used to send cards but they never got through Your mom’s in a home You never even phone You wrote that check long ago You mull it over when you are sober The choices that landed you here But if time was fluid I think you’d still do it Despite all the toil and strife These revelations will be lost tonight Surly and soured drunker each hour You try and recall what’s gone wrong Each passing scene ripped from a magazine Flashing around in your brain You vow that you’ll never come back again Back in your apartment you pull out a Polaroid One of the few that you haven’t destroyed Run a wrinkled finger across her young face You’re tired of wishing all these long days away Tired of wishing your last days away

On a Wire 03:32
On a Wire If I have this right You belong on a wire With everyone that you have ever known Staring spellbound below If I get what you mean You’re above everything You hold that pole so tightly when you walk Or else you’re outlined in chalk I know it’s wrong I see my mistake I didn’t mean to leave you in my wake
