Track Name: Still in Love
I've been on your rain porch
For a while

Well I'm still in love with you
I'm still in love

I ain't seen your face now
For a while

Well I'm still in love with you
I'm still in love
Track Name: I'm Sure Hank Didn't Done It This Way
Well I'm not gonna play the harmonica
There will be no pedal steel on this song
I will live alone, I'll live on this pond
I'll sing this song out and I'll steal what he sung

I will listen close for the wind chimes
It's my picture now, I see it every day
You took the rest but you forgot the best one
I hope that last line rhymes in some way

I throw my bottle in the back yard river
I hope the water understands my love for it
I'll play the flute but I will not on this song
I hope my daughter understands when the time comes
I throw the pillow and the blanket follows
I pray for rain, I pray for rain, I pray for rain
I'm cutting now into my left arm wristwatch
'Cause my arm is fragile, and I don't want to bleed
Take from the inside what you lack in progress
I'll bake a cake so you can hold your candle
I will press play but I will not play this song
I need an army that can hold my hand all day
Track Name: Action
Action
I'm asking
I allow myself to go
Passion
I'm breaking
I allow myself to go

Who cast me?
How come we stare at the unknown?
Who took his life?
Who came inside and called it home?
Partly
I'm hardly
Thinking of the times we had before

Around the survivors
A parameter create
So I can go

Who cast me?
How come we stare at the unknown?
Who took his life?
Who came inside and called it home?
Track Name: Song For Rory
Here's my song for Rory and
I hope that he enjoys it and
I hope we get together
On the weekend or whenever and
I hope my bond will grow
With this girl I used to know and
I know know know know know
That she knows knows knows knows
I, I don't have a soul and
I was maybe thinking that
I could borrow yours
'Cause I don't like the cold
Yeah I was maybe thinking
I was maybe thinking
I could borrow your coat
Here's another letter that
We add into our paper basket
I've not seen to figure out yet
That you aren't the safest bet
But I don't really care
Because my love for you is never ending
If we had a puppy we would name him after Schindler's listings
I, I don't have a soul and
I was maybe thinking that
I could borrow yours
'Cause I don't like the cold
Yeah I was maybe thinking
I was maybe thinking
I could borrow your coat
Track Name: Phantasmagoria
Ariel, I don't know
How or why or when or who

I will grow all I can
I will sew all I can
I'll Bailo all I can
En la case I can
I will fake all I can
I will take all I can
I will break all I can
That you make if I can
I'll save face all I can
If brown masks are what's in
I will give up my hair
If you grow somewhere near
I will sit all I can
If you want me to stand
I will vote for the horse
If you support the man

Ariel, I don't know
How or why or when or who

I will sell all I can
I will sell all I can
I will sell all I can
I will sell all I can
I'll save face all I can
No pro bono, I can
I will vote for the horse
If you support the man

Take this love if you can
You're enough if you stand
Shed your gloves if you can't
Hide your head in the sand
You can fake all you can
You can take all you can
I will break all I can
That you make if I can
Track Name: Amused
You are so amused
the planet waves won't cut or bruise you

If you had to choose
You would be the one to pull the trigger, wouldn't you?

When I begged for truth
Common knowledge was provided courtesy of you

You are so amused
the planet waves won't cut or bruise you
Track Name: Ballad of the Cattle Farmer
These days are getting so bad
These animal rights activists
Are bringing me down
To the ground
I'll shave whatever I please
I will behave if I feel the need
It's bringing me down
To the ground
I hear that Alaska can get cold
I hear that those who don't die young grow old
It's bringing me down
To the ground
Track Name: My Dead Soldiers
Nobody knows what we've been through
Nobody knows except for me and you and
My dead soldiers
My dead soldiers
We've seen it all my love
And then some more my love
We walked the beach my love
Back when you had feet my love

To Hollywood my love
Movie star my love
And all my dead soldiers
My dead soldiers
My dead soldiers
Track Name: Pick Up Your Own
Pick up your own
You'll never be
You'll never be
Waiting for me

You tell me I'm cold
You tell me I bleed
You tell me I bleed
Out in the street
And the Calvary will come
To rescue everyone
Until these days are gone
Until this war is won
You tell me I know
Know where to be
Know where to be
When you're waiting for me

Baby I don't
Know what to see
Know what to see
When you're waiting for me

And the Calvary will come
To rescue everyone
Until these days are gone
Until this war is won
Because I'm in You
And I don't know where I'm going to

Where are my handcuffs
Where is my raincoat
I'll give you nothing if you stay alive
Where are my bodyguards
Where are my candy hearts
I'll give you nothing
That you stay alive
I'll give you nothing
If you stay alive
Track Name: Song About Swords
It's not as easy as you think
It's not like we just sit and drink alone
We hog the while we heil we hog
The things that always make our smiles know
We crashed our swords before
We drove fords that we can't afford anymore
We crashed our words before
We played chords so the ground would shake to the lord
We crashed our words before
It was so beautiful to think
The speakers made the noise that I wanted them to
But it is easier to sing
Than think about what music means to you
We crashed our swords before
We drove fords that we can't afford anymore
We crashed our words before
We played chords so the ground would shake to the lord
We crashed our words before
