Track Name: cheater
cheater

all you love is coming down
you have gone to ground
there's nothing left but the sound
of the tears in your heart
and the night comes apart
around you

if love is what you leave
then this hell that you believe
there's nothing left but to grieve
over holes burned of sin
in your perforated skin
too tight for you

if love is what you lost
then the lives you have crossed
celebrate the cost
of the nights that you burn
with each succeeding turn
of your screw

your love has gone to seed
it got twisted by the speed
that little taste became the need
for each secret greedy thrust
the little death of trust
inside of you

here's a penny for your pain
baby, let's not meet again
i'm done with you
your cheatings through
Track Name: all too tight
all too tight

i got this feeling but it's quarter to two
i got that feeling when i first met you
you know that feeling with a trembling knee
next thing your feeling is the deep of the need

you go pushin' it and pullin' it
and taking it over
gonna love it, gonna fight it
until you recover
'cause you want it and you need it
and it's never enough
it's a crazy mother sudden sweet taste
for that stuff

i got this feeling that we might get close
i dig the feeling of disposable clothes
you know that feeling when it's all too tight
and all your feeling is the crush of the night

you go pushin' it and pullin' it
and taking it over
gonna love it, gonna fight it
until you recover
'cause you want it and you need it
and it's never enough
it's a crazy mother sudden sweet taste
for that stuff

you go in and out and in and out of love
you go in and out and in and out of love

you go pushin' it and pullin' it
and taking it over
gonna love it, gonna fight it
until you recover
'cause you want it and you need it
and it's never enough
it's a crazy mother sudden sweet taste
for that stuff
Track Name: cried for love
cried for love

i cried for love but not for you
poor boys singing
i cried for love but not for you
poor boys singing

six guns to the wind, skies of fire

i cried for love but not for me
claxons ringing
i cried for love but not for me
the claxons ringing

six guns to the wind, skies of fire

i cried for love but not for peace
the black rain bringing
i cried for love but not for peace
the black rain bringing

six guns to the wind, skies of fire
Track Name: tea & sympathy
tea and sympathy

give it up girl don't live in a bottle
gotta learn to steer before you go full throttle
or you'll hit the wall, too close to call

take another sip just fall through the cracks
another road ahead puts the wind at your back
if you last that long, if you just stay strong

you're about as a big as a celery stalk
taking off the dial of your favourite clock
'cause you want to save time, well it's half past nine
somewhere

maybe i'm mad and maybe i'd dare
to take the time that it takes to care
if you missed last call, jumped that wall

from whiskey nights to heartsick days
running up a tab that your spirt pays
in sticks and stones, in broken homes

now i'm no saint, not one to talk
there's a great big life if you only stop
and maybe see, what else could be
right there
Track Name: empty walls
empty walls

i clutch the captive memory as i crawl across your sands
we're just a half from empty that's a feeling you can't stand
over all the hands we double when we treble cross the land
we're the pins for pretty bubbles, we're the capsule left unmanned

four empty walls
come falling down
four empty walls
come falling down

i trade the wind for embers from the third last cigarette
and i trace the anxious shadows as you leave in silhouette
i'm cut and running quarters, my two bits of blood to let
just following disorders, every sucker needs a bet

four empty walls
come falling down
four empty walls
come falling down

and all the things you've said and done
the likely tales, the kingdom come
the crashing rain, the beating drum
that sounds the toll of moon and sun
surpassing light or darkness runs
the threads of hope that could be spun
take heart, behold, you've just begun
find love in life my lonely one

four empty walls
come falling down
four empty walls
come falling down
Track Name: changes unmade
changes unmade

isn't that a funny thing
to try to call love
raise a hand
misunderstand
before belief becomes
a sharp embrace
the rouge, the race
rabbits will run
nothing here is ever near
a backhanded

look, at decisions you took
like incisions
we won't breathe a word about
your dirty little lies

isn't it a funny trip
that we try to hide
the bitter end
of let's pretend
disguised with a smile
the last escape
forget forsake
morning that comes
the monster kind is running blind
and we won't even

look, at the changes unmade
at the walls we engrave
with the tales of how
we never even tried
Track Name: screw top wine
screw top wine

here from what i don't remember
penny drops her thoughts for dimes
baby laughs and both look over
top to the belly with screw top wine

they sing all the songs about
the things they talk about
in rings they cannot move without
the sting of penny tasting doubt

there you see a book of lovers
touching pages, tales entwine
baby laughs and both look over
made with a belly full of screw top wine

they sing all the songs about
the things they thought about
the strings they cannot live without
the ring of penny bells

i don't believe in all of me i'm meeting
i don't believe in all the food we're eating
it's easy then, to hope for more tomorrow
it's easy then, but hope is time we borrow

i need to learn, in peace, in kind and keeping
i need to learn, yadda yadda yadda
buying in to names not who's behind them
buying in by faith in love and nothing less

here from there i lost december
penny drops her name and signs
baby laughs for crying out christmas
up to his belly in the screw top wine

they sang a little song about
the things they would have talked about
which brings us all back without
her wings when penny fell
Track Name: the tide
the tide

there's a dirty steel gray sky closing in
and i can't move for love and not for sin
if the ends are just the means may just begin
to take a fallow heart and grow again

no more lovers waiting by the phone
no more preacher dust upon the stone
all the things we wish away and hide
return amid the fullness of the tide

when the sky you fear comes crashing down
will the center hold before the fearful sound
did you take good care to keep the ground
or salt the earth and let it come unbound

no more lovers waiting by the phone
no more preacher dust upon the stone
all the things we wish away and hide
return amid the fullness of the tide

now, i don't have an answer in a song
we'll find our faith or not before too long
and on the wings of hope we'll carry on
deliverance or doom comes right or wrong

no more lovers waiting by the phone
no more preacher dust upon the stone
all the things we wish away and hide
return amid the fullness of the tide
Track Name: note to self
note to self

it's not in the words that you say to keep
all of your wishing well
it's all of the world when you try to sleep
caught up in whispers that tell

you've got pretty little fingers
you savour what lingers
on tear kissed pillows
at dawn

it's not in the night that you keep for days
tucked in and wishing well
it's all in the name that your choose to speak
lost in the moments that fell

through your pretty little fingers
you're left to what lingers
on tear kissed pillows
at dawn

it's not in the fears that you hope to bend
to will your wishing well
it's all of the years that you took to spend
counting up wishes to sell

on your pretty little fingers
'til the last of what lingers
on tear dust pillows
is gone
Track Name: another damn song
another damn song

another damn song about playing in a band
power up the amps, make your one night stand
test your courage and kind

open up your breast with each touch upon a string
give away a breath of life with every word you sing
that goes unheard

this is for the lovers of the singers and the songs
celebrate the hope that peace could make you strong
if you try
or should you try

looking for the faces in the flashing of the light
try to find the words in the echo of the night
before it fades too soon

walk another mile, take your posture and choose
between the belly for the dollars and the love of the blues
where it all began

this is for the lovers of the singers and the songs
celebrate the hope that peace could make you strong
if you try
or should you try

should you try to find the way
to take your love today
or try to find the way
to take you home
Track Name: sometime (song for matthew john)
sometime

well you know we all got to go sometime
and it's a crime when sometime comes too soon
so when you go, won't you blaze that path to glory
and when it's time we can follow you through

sometimes never more is what we question
sometimes ones we love are passing through
sometimes never more is all the reason
sometimes nothing more is left to do

when you look back down from where your going
sing a song and let your voice ring true
raise the wind for a duet with the thunder
and the rain will wash the tears we sing for you

sometimes never more is what we question
sometimes ones we love are passing through
sometimes never more is all the reason
sometimes nothing more is left to do

when the piper sounds the call for saints and sinners
and the hounds address the moon with doggie blues
then your song will echo on into the night time
and we'll all still sing along, along with you

sometimes never more is what we question
sometimes ones we love are passing through
sometimes never more is all the reason
sometimes nothing more is left to do
Track Name: revealed
revealed

if you could tell me the way
that i need to love you
if you could give me your hand
i swear i'd try

pick up something sad
you're really over
cool kiss, breath of the night
upon my mind

the way you look
the way you feel
the strangest sense
i am revealed

if i could just find the words
i need to tell you
damned if you do it
but damned times two if you don't

look up something sad
to keep you lonely
lost kiss thrown to the night
we never mind

the way you look
the way you feel
the strangest sense
i am revealed

caught looking back
i never knew
caught looking back
and i miss

the way you look
the way you feel
the strangest sense
i am revealed
Track Name: for all we know
for all we know

falling down stone cold dead in the market
looking for love on a line, in a pocket
coming up crosses, broken on the surface
one in the hand means two is on purpose

and all we know is
no one's home
for all we know
it's true

pushing up roses 'cause you never did like daisies
acting bloody fools, with nothing left but maybe
kissing for courage, catalogues and coffee
dry as down stage tears, cracks in time, you lost me

and all we know is
no one's home
for all we know
it's true

kicking in the windows on your last forbidden secret
praying in the rain, off the chance you'll need it
pursing pretty lips, bombardiers and brooms
tumble weather skies in lonely sitting rooms

and all we know is
no one's home
for all we know
it's true
Track Name: jimmy went digging
jimmy went digging

jimmy went digging and damned if he didn't
damned if he didn't strike dirt

by the shovel of night 'til you call

jimmy kept running and damned by the finger
damned by the palm full of dirt

a field stone fortune, the sparkle of quartz
won't keep your breakfast on legs, keep shaking
oh, legs go around

and it smells like a summer ago
and it feels like it feels on ice
and the moon in a bandage of clouds
occlude, your station is scrambled

jimmy fell apart at the dreams
and jimmy took just what it seems
to be true, here's looking at you

jimmy died singing, redeemed and relaxing
deep in his dark beloved dirt

a headstone memory, with charms of quartz
won't keep the rest of the world from shaking
the world keeps going round

and it smells like a summer ago
and it feels like it feels on ice
with the moon in a bandage of clouds
occlude, your station is losing, losing, losing
