Track Name: Lonely Man
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing

these days I set high to the sun
I'll leave my heart for the cage
I walked these hands to the dead
marred my cross for your favor
no, you don't know how to live

lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your god to start showing

I gave my heart to the sun
so please leave me here
you can't be forgotten when you're dead
not if your heart isn't here
no, you don't know how to live

lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your god to start showing
Track Name: Let The Sail Be Your Guide
everytime i leave
im back where i began
my feet are moving slow
hell i can barely stand

so I'll just stop right here
i figured it would help
with every step i took
it worsened how i felt

let that sail be your guide
just go along for the ride
you'll find happiness inside these winds
its an offering
its an offering

now i just cant help
thinking awful thoughts
with all these people 'round me
oh lord the gossip never stops

let that ocean be your guide
just go along for the ride
you'll find happiness inside these tides
its an offering
its an offering
Track Name: All Of Your Demons
so tell what used to
mean something to you
before you let it die
you saw that letter
and you hid it well
for someone here to justify

it makes no difference
does it dear
when you've got nothing in your skies
and as hard as you tried
to leave it alone
it certainly came back to your eyes

so now your father
has left his chair
for reasons you cant seem to disclose
and its starting to show
in the strands of grey
that seem to hang so
listless in your face

and all of your demons
with shorter names
but they remain here just the same
and it must be simple
now to refrain
as long as its done in someone else's name
Track Name: Gravel Rattle
the gravel rattles in my shoes
says I've been gone too long
they said I've got nothing to lose
and pay your way with a song
but i sold it for a dime
a penny a rhyme

yes i stole
but only a little
just what i need
to put the wind at my feet
at least the blame was free
and deserving of me
but now i just cant seem to stop

this old guitar will creak and moan
it barely stays in tune
i works these fingers string to bone
under a clear white moon
and i thank the stars its gotten me this far
a penny in my jar

yes i stole
but only a little
just what i need
to put the wind at my feet
at least the blame was free
and deserving of me
but now i just cant seem to stop
Track Name: The Sun Will Burn Our Eyes
head on held high
with tired eyes
shadows circle
a raven cries

and the sun will burn our eyes
said I
said I
and the sun will burn our eyes
said I
said I

willow whisper
to me
shadows and sand
cool and clean

and the moon will calm you down
said I
said I
and the moon will calm you down
said I
said I

willow firmly rooted
in your leaves i will weave a home
I'm home
yes I'm home
and they'll never shake us
blow and blow as the wind
may
and it may
yes it may
Track Name: Flame
I'm drawn to the flame
what we love
leaves us insane
my shadow was ashamed
so much he left
and changed his name

tear out my heart
you thief
tear out my heart
you thief

your weathered skin remains
cracked and filled
with dust and rain
now your eyes opaque and plain
and all your skies
have turned the same

tear out my heart
you thief
tear out my heart
you thief
Track Name: All You Had To Do
all you had to do is put up a fight
all you had to do is put up a fight
you really don't need to be so polite
all you had to do is put up a fight

one more kiss before we say goodnight
one more kiss before we say goodnight
before I close my eyes tell me everything alright
just one more kiss before we say goodnight

the clouds came down
something shook beneath the ground
I heard a voice saying everything will be just fine
the mountain swayed
it was a biblical masquerade
and again I heard that voice

Mary singing

all you had to do is put up a fight
all you had to do is put up a fight
and incoming blow can be quite a fright
all you had to do is put up a fight

so please don't leave me where I lay
please don't leave me where I lay
this evening left my heart in quite disarray
so please don't leave me where I lay

the clouds came down
something shook beneath the ground
I heard a voice saying everything will be just fine
the mountain swayed
it was a biblical masquerade
and again I heard that voice

Mary singing
Track Name: Maybe You Got All You Need
the circumstances full
like the waves around your feet
and you stood in the tide froze
seaweed around your toes
and in this you could believe
in the motion manifested by the sea
crying out with sweet relief
in these waters i shall remain free

singing om vajra sattva om
singing om vajra sattva om

maybe you got all you need to fight this war
maybe you got all you need
maybe you got all you need to fight this war
maybe you got all you need... to fight this war

singing om vajra sattva om
singing om vajra sattva om
Track Name: Lonely Man (reprise)
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing

these days I set high to the sun
I'll leave my heart for the cage
I walked these hands to the dead
marred my cross for your favor
no, you don't know how to live

lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your god to start showing

I gave my heart to the sun
so please leave me here
you can't be forgotten when you're dead
not if your heart isn't here
no, you don't know how to live

lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your love to start showing
lonely man where you going
are you waiting for your god to start showing
