Track Name: Laura Rose
Strange signals the morning leaves, oh I see the birds up in the trees
Does reality seem to glow to those who don't understand or know?
Don't let me down for you're the one thing I believe in

Disappear 'tween clouds of stone, not here where the old men sit and groan
And palsy shakes the last few hairs, on the fossils of what once was there
Don't let me down, for you're the one thing I believe in

Need declare but am so weak, and my lungs won't pull the air to speak
I feel my muscles atrophy, the time has come my friends I must leave
Don't let me down, for you're the one thing I believe in

And life, life, seems so right
Wake me up, wake me up in the middle of the night
And oh, to think
Oh, to think,
oh, to think,
oh, to think
No...
Track Name: Words
Find the time find the remains
88 years review the game
Fight the hype, fight the shame
Fight to be called by your rightful name

Look up to the hills tattooed by master men
Their names on your lips as the journey begins
Been chasin' ghosts and lost rhythms
And you'll know one day, you'll know

In the sun in the snow
Hidden under cathedrals you've never known
On the hills on the land
Truth lost in the water or buried in the sands
Buried in the sands.

Look up to the hills tattooed by master men
Their names on your lips as the journey begins
Been chasin' ghosts and lost rhythms
And you'll know one day, you'll know

Look up to the hills tattooed by master men
Their names on your lips as the journey begins
Been chasin' ghosts and lost rhythms
And you'll know one day, you'll know
Track Name: I'm All Night
Step out the bone house to find yourself amongst the animals tonight
Everybody's looking for that chance that last minute rush to get high

But it's all right
When the vultures come to feast I'll be the first to bite
Cause I'm all night
Prometheus' fire I'll wash the dark in light

Pick up the Krypton stumble Sampson, you let someone in too close
'Cause you know the dope's always down at the watering hole down at 2nd and Coles

But it's all right
When the vultures come to feast I'll be the first to bite
Cause I'm all night
Prometheus' fire I'll wash the dark in light
How they ignite
Dynamite the stars and snuff out the light
What closed sight
Can break the confines of the anti socialite?

But it's all right
When the vultures come to feast I'll be the first to bite
Cause I'm all night
Prometheus' fire I'll wash the dark in light
How they ignite
Dynamite the stars and snuff out the light
What closed sight
Can break the confines of the anti socialite?

Alright...
Track Name: My Brother's '66
In that morning I wake up and try to make the best
Of all these books and things that spark my interests
Never could I be stuck behind the desk
Wondering why I never took the risk

Oh these motors won't fix themselves
Can't start a block that wasn't built
Well somethings just seem so obvious
Funny how all things new deny that one day
One day they'll rust

Winter's day I was in my brother's '66
We were listening to Darkness (on the Edge of Town)
The retired fields all seemed to sag with age
Halted diesel engines on a December day

Oh these motors won't fix themselves
Can't start a block that wasn't built
Well somethings just seem so obvious
Funny how all things new deny that one day
One day they'll...

These lights, these lights warmingly bright
I'm out on the highway
The poison blinding my sight
I see the city, the factory lights
the foreman says, "You're done for life."
I don't know, oh, I don't know where to go.
Track Name: No More Apologies
Machiavelli's round table has their chain mail on tonight
In the streets of New York turning that East Village upright
In the high rise castle walls princesses overdose on that sweet kiss
And lost in New Jersey is that unfortunate young prince
And those

Baptismal waters flow
Bells of Rhymney chime all alone
Time flickers, fade away slow
All weathering the cornerstone
Weathering the cornerstone

Dressed up so cocky, Ichabod unknowingly goes out tonight
And winds up in Connecticut where the last of the Mohicans lies
Even the lowliest servant knows that nothing is how it seems
That American justice is the gallows or the guillotine

Baptismal waters flow
Bells of Rhymney chime all alone
Time flickers, fade away slow
All weathering the cornerstone
Weathering the cornerstone

There watching from the balcony sits Draco and his team
Watching princes and paupers losing the New American Dream
From the bay to the church walls Paul Revere's still beating that bad horse down
And the Piper disappears into the woods without a sound

Baptismal waters flow
Bells of Rhymney chime all alone
Time flickers, fade away slow
All weathering the cornerstone
Weathering the cornerstone

And on a night like tonight, I'm Song of Myself collecting dust on the shelf
You're a book of fairy tales, oh stories we all know so well
Remember to light candles if you ever bring me out again
And I promise to be all of those fairy tales
