Track Name: Algonquin
Algonquin

Got to the top of old Algonquin
Above the trees it’s only rocks and snow
It never goes the way I thought it was going to go
O Destiny I love you so

I lost my heart on old Algonquin
She fell in love with the streets of Buffalo
Let herself go into a cloud of dandelion snow
O Destiny I love you so
Track Name: I Can't Shake You
I Can’t Shake You


Spent that last summer drunk on a mystery
Having no idea
Going on a feeling

Trying to lift right off of a country road
Ready to explode
Into the future

Girl
You got into me
And you’re holding on
I can’t shake you

I got into a school two states away
So there I would go
And here you would stay

Four long years I tried and tried
To let you go
But you held me so tightly
While I said no no no no no

I never met someone like you
I kept on saying that we were through
You didn't say nothing
How could you
You didn't even know me

I was a fool I never did
Introduce myself
I just ran and hid
And now you'll never even know
That I exist
Track Name: Concrete Age
Concrete Age


Stone and bronze and
Iron and gypsum
We’re are falling off
The edge of a Concrete Age
A skeleton makes a man
As solid as a mountain
But what's left when we go
Piles and piles of broken bones

Stone and bronze and
Iron and gypsum
We're all falling off
The edge of a Concrete Age
Dune upon dune of white
Follow me to the light
May be strong, may be sound
But the wind will push you around
Track Name: Spring Day
Spring Day


Now the gloves are off, the clouds are thinning away
And the melt is sinking
It’s time to get things done
Open up your eyes, It’s morning time
Time to cease this hibernating
And let in a little sun

The world out there, it seems to be tilting
And I don’t remember it being so bright
Sunshine fires my imagination

When I looked out the window, the first thing that came to my mind is
The time has come
To get things done
Let’s go down to the kitchen, I’ll make the coffee
While you put the radio on
To our favorite song

The world out there, it seems to be tilting
And I don’t remember it being so bright
Sunshine fires my imagination
Track Name: Tracks in the Mud
Tracks in the Mud


Tracks in the mud wandering away
I must of been asleep when you snuck away
Now I’m all alone sitting on a stone
Trying to stoke the fire
Getting it together

Got to keep moving along
The nights get cold round here
Stop moving and it won't be long

The best days are ahead of me
I’m getting kind of old and
And I got no money but
The best, best days are ahead of me
At least that's what
I tell myself
My self don't listen
Better start moving

What was it you said just the other night
If loving me is wrong then you'll never be right
I'm not sure I took it the way that you meant it
Now I’m picking up the pieces
That fell into the creases
Track Name: Castle Bravo
Castle Bravo


This is my world
The hammer’s been hurled
The retro-wound clock has begun a revolution
In the Castle Bravo the sand is turning to glass

I look at my watch
Each tiny notch
Is filled up with un-dark to glow, didn’t you know?
In the Castle Bravo the sand is turning to glass

In the Castle the radium girls are carefully painting their nails
Bikinis are still just a nightmare, not real
Just a dream, just a feeling

This is my world
My tiny pearl
The coyote brought back the sun a celebration
In the castle bravo the sand is turning to glass
Track Name: Apollo is Coming Up Big
Apollo is Coming Up Big


Tomorrow is the first day of spring
What is a day out here there’s no such thing
The fruit is simply bursting into flames
Beneath his radiant gaze
Apollo is coming up big these days

The sun has always been our friend
But even good friends can be bitter in the end
Now the lake is beginning to boil
The steam’s rising up through the soil
Apollo is coming up big these days

When you get on the chariot
Take the reigns and drive it higher
You never think that you ever could
Set the world on fire
And now even the days they go down in flames
And nothing is all that remains
Apollo is coming up big these days
Track Name: The Saint of Blasphemy
The Saint of Blasphemy


I am the saint of blasphemy
I am the worst thing you can call me
I am the end of the old law
I am the beginning of the new law

When I say I, I mean God
It’s no pretense it’s no facade
He came into me through the talons of an eagle
I’ve died before and I’ll die again

With the ax here beside me
I’m going to rip down everything I see
I’ll wave my hand and kingdoms will crumble
I am the saint of blasphemy
Track Name: Butterfest
Butterfest


Come with me
We're going to the Cook's Meadow
The naked tree
Is throwing down a blue shadow
My heart's aflame I wonder if you feel the same
Will you come with me
My butter honey

Whoa
The band is about to play
And the Coyote
Is stealing all the light from the day
Rest your head in the arms of a melody
Love so sweet
Oh butter honey

Whoa
The flames are starting to rise
They're touching the trees
They're shooting out of all of our eyes
My heart's on fire I might be a little too high
I need a place to sleep
Oh butter honey
Will you come with me
My butter honey
Track Name: War of Words
War of Words


We’re never going to win this
War of words
We’re way to caught up in this
War of words

Do you remember we went walking in the moonlight
I said do you want to go steady and you said yes
In that moment it was me and you against the world
And now we're all torn apart
Love
Can we get back to the way it was?

Do you remember the thunder catching up to us
You came in close and I put one knee right in the mud
I swore I'd love you with my last drop of blood
And now we're all torn apart
Love
Can we get back to the way it was?
Track Name: Flesh Melt Away
Flesh Melt Away


Flesh I no longer need you
Melt away, melt away
You just want to hold on
It’s okay you can melt away

Fall from this place to another
I know you can let yourself let go

You’re afraid that you might miss
A warm embrace, a loved one's face
A stolen moment, a kiss
It's okay, let it melt away

I know it's so hard for you to say
Goodbye to today, goodbye to tomorrow
Someday we all have to
Get out of the way, the world is coming through
And there’s no place for you
There’s no place for you

There’s only so much we can bear
The space we made, well it’s heavy now
But so much lighter than the air
We will be when you melt from me
Track Name: Devil Keeps Knocking
Devil Keeps Knocking


Devil something
Kept me coming
Back to you
Then I thought I
Had run it
Clear through
But I didn't kill it
Only made it
Get stronger
Now I don't think
I can take it
Any longer

Felt forgiveness
Raining down
From above
Felt adversity
Cut it open
There was love
But then time
Andi its tenacity
Overtook me
Now I'm lost
In the streets
In the city

Devil keep walking on
Devil stop knocking on my door
