Track Name: Sludge and Sunlight
dust to dust, they say to me
and all we have's the in-between.
you walk this ground and then you sink
it's not as bad as what you think
So grab a hand, take in the view
of sun and what we're slogging through
tumbling, tumbling, tumbling down
in sludge and sunlight scattered all around

at 23, emptied my pockets
on racetrack bets and bottle rockets
my last true love said take my hand
of course I couldn't understand
and walked away in spite of self
to lose my pride, my home, my health
adrift on waves of sound and years
until the tide rolls back from here

what becomes of memories
those are dying out it seems
slippery and fading quick
sludge and sunlight's all it is
and I can barely follow through
much less fight a war for you
beneath a bright but silent sky
this piece of ground is where I'll die

at 23, emptied my pockets
on racetrack bets and bottle rockets
my last true love said take my hand
but i won’t ever understand
and now she lives around the bend
with all her stupid hippie friends
all of them equally adrift
she'll be horrified when she hears this

at 23, emptied my pockets
on racetrack bets and bottle rockets
my last true love said take my hand
but no more treading that quicksand
I'll carry on, knowing my time
to make room for the next in line
adrift on waves of sound and years
unless the tide rolls back from here
Track Name: Dearest Jolene
dearest Jolene
those Minnesota blues
swirling in
grenadine and booze
it's the taste of you
ever what is easier than what is true
down past the spires of St. Andrews

dearest Jolene
those old bells peal for you
blaring out
that unforgiving tune
you'll always choose
ever what is easier than what is true
lost in the dark of St. Andrews

the streets run down it
we all go on about it
but never less without it than you
go on resound it
we turn circles around it
Jolene it's obvious to you

believe, believe
those church bells sing
a wasp without it's sting
for Jolene

the streets run down it
we all go on about it
but never less without it than you
go on resound it
we turn circles around it
Jolene it's obvious to you
Track Name: Ocean Liner
could’ve been your dog and all of that you know I would’ve tried
to light the darkened corners of the ugly places you reside
but had i known that all i’d ever do post-25
is live alone, regret and think of you at night i might say

you’ve got a lot to answer for honey
when this lost weekend’s over
you’ll have so much to answer for

so point this ocean liner north to somewhere godless cold and white
the mainland’s dark and who knows what i’ll be when i shrink out of sight
a paragon of stoic face and stony heart
i'll sober up, and find myself a place to start, then write you

you've got a lot to answer for, honey
when this lost weekend's over
you'll have so much to answer for

conventional wisdom wont give me much credit
on whether or not its considered pathetic
to live out a cliche
but seems to me its just the part i've gotta play, its tragic

you've got a lot to answer for, honey
you've got a lot to answer for
when this lost weekend's over
you'll have so much to answer for
