Track Name: The Same Moon
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
Track Name: Blackened Air
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
Track Name: Skin and Teeth
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
Track Name: Left
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
Track Name: Conversion
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
Track Name: Scars
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
Track Name: Deer
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
Track Name: Glitch
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
Track Name: Packing
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
Track Name: Everything Falls
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
Track Name: Tired of Wishing
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
Track Name: On a Wire
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
