Same Mistake 02:38
Strain has taken its toll playing all the usual roles time on the road, all alone rain is expected tonight wait for the river to rise and wipe all the stones off the road no signs no lights but old lines don't lie time on the road is causing the same mistake as before stay true to the root of the cure wipe all the stones of the road no signs no lights but old lines don't lie time on the road is going to let you know no signs no lights old times old lines time on the road is causing the same mistake as before
If you take some time slow into a crawl everything delays around you and the same tired eyes passing through it all never have a way to find you every day some kind of invisible barrier grows and I know that you'll walk and find fastened to the door all your worldly weights have found you and followed it's a long day's ride half a moon or more all around the sound of oceans and you know by now how to choose a course where to move without commotion and it's only right if you're already waiting to go but I know if I change my mind how could you be sore? every path is always open to follow if you take some time if you take some time and you change my mind and you wait...
Mystery doctor what have you done? Blessing me feet first? I know when to run slyly arranging calling to say listen to me and I'll do what you say no more watching birds no more open hands I'm left floating my feet in lonely oceans la la la la la la la la la calling to see you hoping to draw attention to me well, I know what you saw lay out your right hand hmmm, I don't know trace all your lines and well, I don't know name all your vices still I don't know take off your lining well... no more spoken words no more holding out I let go of my dreams and holy notions la la la la la la la la la
You don't have to leave this town to find a place apart all around the names align count them as they change their minds no friends allowed and leave your conscience well behind climb aboard and say goodbye promise on the way to write well, you don't have to call in or to know your reasons why 'cause there's solace in the lie there's solace in the lie you don't have to talk it out to find a common ground all the oldest faces lie fashion doesn't reason why all drunk and buying something precious, something nice sweet and soft to woo you right only long enough to bite well, you don't have to quarrel if it's sung a bit too bright 'cause there's solace in the lie there's solace in the lie and I remember the city broke your heart long ago well now remember the way you hoped to prove a fit it you don't have to fall in love to know what's on your mind 'cause there's solace in the lie there's solace in the lie maybe now while the street's on fire down below tell the children the coast is calling
If you would be queen of the rioting then I could be king by decree oh yeah we would be home now we would be home now there by the roadside nobody knows nobody knows them all don't worry--why should we? impatience is just a sign of need no further time to lose-- accept the results I choose all lowly cards will soon embrace with disgust the final clues out on our widest wing we'll let the insults fly free even the queen's eye can see why the evidence grows by the day oh yeah you should be home now you should be home now
Are you sleeping? open your eyes I stopped a while to wait for the sun to rise moonlight shining low hanging clouds it won't be long before this painted town loses priceless ground you were right all along continue come on, blindness turn me around no longer hoping for a bit of ground feels like teasing sells like a smile but I walk along you now for a patient mile in a single file you were right all along continue you were right all along continue underneath the twilight this moment seems too finite it only drags you down all around us hollow desires to chase tomorrow they only drag you down walk into the weeds and I may believe your reasons but they only dragged you down
Run Away 03:04
Lazy waiting upon your arrival summer's promised to stay true but I know it won't warming thoughts dissolve in a daydream frozen slowly by sleeping in the evening cold if I say to run away will you? send a letter home when you're leaving talk of what you've been dreaming all the things I don't while I wait and mope like a smart child stoic, hoping to freeze time long enough to grow did I say to run away? did you?
Lost Son 04:36
lost son of the south don't cross my name out we've grown apart but don't doubt where you are now lie with your own our lines cross somewhere that's way off but too close to drive come out break the line now part with your own there all alone
Only a Ghost 05:03
Allow this broken rhyme to ease your woes of all these wasted lines, believe this one that I saw in a headline it's too foolish to quote dissolving in the air I followed it tonight listened on the celing and talk into the light but as I wander home I know it's only a ghost it's only a ghost wearing the right eyes unhand this stolen heart and lay it down it haunted all my dreams until we found it still, I thought you would stay mine but you couldn't be sold the fall of millionaires has taught it to you right so pick another reason that's causing you to fight 'cause as I often don't I know it's only a ghost it's only a ghost wearing the right eyes
