Track Name: Hardened Heart
Hardened Heart

Wasting away
You’re a waiting room
Painful to say
But you dug that tomb
You’re feeling weak, but that’s the way things are

Trying to make love with a hardened heart
Trying to make love with a hardened heart

Eyes scan the room
Skin you long to touch
No other man
Has ever carded so much
You stop to speak, but that’s the hardest part

Trying to make love with a hardened heart
Trying to make love with a hardened heart

One day you’ll find
You can’t run, you can’t hide,
You can’t keep your wits about it
Too scared to die —
So sigh…
Track Name: State of Things Today
State Of Things Today

Each night I’ve been singing songs about myself
I — I always thought that this might end some pain
No — I’ve come to find that some things never change
But I feel all right

Each night I’ve been drinking more than I should tell
I — I hate to see me pinned against myself
So — long to the reeling of my brain
But I feel all right

Each night, I’ve been dreaming ‘bout the woman with the silver cup
Sweet, I know it’s water but it’s her that makes the flavor change
So, She grabs another when I get the strength to stand back up
And I feel all right

Down for a good time and if she’s got it
Take me as you need me, any way you want it
Somewhere the stars shine a flash of comet
Honey can you blame me for just trying to get up on it?

(woah)
Track Name: Neon
Neon

Young thing knocks me over
Where’d she come from? Who’s her lover?
No time to mull it over
Keep my head on
I need to know her

Scream if you want it
Lust could lead to ecstasy
Howl if you got it
Girl crawl up on next to me

Well I’ll take her, good gracious,
I’d make her

Got no reservations
What’s the sense in hesitation?
I’m at the railroad station
Two lights burning, red conversation

Chorus

She’s like a neon sign
Watch her shining as the beat goes on
It goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on—

She’s like a neon sign
Hook and line you feel it coming on
It goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on—

She thinks she’s so rock ‘n roll
She thinks she’s so full of soul
She thinks she’s got it
Well I don’t want to talk about it

She’s got me swallowed up whole
She’s got me scared for my soul
I know she’s got it,

And I don’t want to talk about it.
Track Name: Sewanee
Sewanee

When looking back at Lady Rosaline
I wonder now and then
Where she has gone?
A Mother Goose with all her goslin’
Bolero settles in Ma mère l'oye

Musing over a young corporal’s dreams
Famous far-faded Egyptian queen
The rose of youth is such a fickle thing
It changes its name and it’s gone

La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da da da da La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da di da di da —

Left Lilthe with another nymph in mind
A treasure hard to find
Black as a swan

I once was lost, but back then I was blind
Her eyes were soft and kind
Cool and withdrawn

Lost my head to that sweet Salome
Femme fatale lead Siegfried astray
Ophelia I won’t let you just wash away
All of this madness is done

La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da da da da
La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da di da di da —
La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da da da da
La di da di da da La di da di da da La di da di da di da —
Track Name: So Sweet, So Subtle
So Sweet, So Subtle

Something sweet, something subtle
That you wear on your breast
Something that gives you trouble
And it keeps you from your rest

Well I don’t need your name
To know what
God calls you

I’ve seen it all of the time
I’ve seen it often I do
I’ve seen it all of the time
And it leads you to run around
This loneliness in you

I’ve heard wise men call you fools
You who can’t stand on your own
They don’t follow their own rules
No they couldn’t time has shown

O but I’m coming down
From this mountain
Just for you

I’ve seen it all of the time
I’ve seen it often I do
I’ve seen it all of the time
And it leads you to run around
This loneliness in you
Track Name: Annie
Annie

You should’ve been named Annie
Married and torn away from me
Like a film I saw with you
Instead of a woman that weren’t you

Bound to remain in the past,
Pillar of salt that couldn’t last
When the rains came down on you
And looking back oh how I loved you

But you’re gone, Annie gone, Annie gone
But you’re gone, Annie gone, Annie gone
But you’re gone, Annie gone, Annie gone
Away

And so it goes, c’est la vie
Bring a new Annie Home to me
Please don’t you ever get me wrong
I’ve always loved you.

But you’re gone, Annie gone, Annie gone
But you’re gone, Annie gone, Annie gone
But you’re gone, Annie gone, Annie gone
Away
Track Name: Hit the Town
Hit The Town

Hit the town or burn one down?
I’m ready to go (but so full of soul)
I might just lay down
Hit the floor and watch the ceiling
Got nothing to do but muse over you

Tear it up and get torn down
It’s all in your head (least that’s what they said)
And you’re coming around
Everybody gets those feelings
Got nothing to say, but live for today

If it’s too much for you
You’re just gonna have to
Learn to be let down

If it’s too much to bear
Not being anywhere
Make a bigger sound

What’ll time take of me? What’ll time make of me? What’ll time break of me?
Where will I go?

What’ll time give to me? What’ll I live to be? And will I ever see
Myself grow old?

What’ll time take of me? What’ll time make of me? What’ll time break of me?
Where will I go?

What’ll time give to me? What’ll I live to be? And will I ever see
Myself grow old?

Hit the town and burn one down
Track Name: Old, Low, and Lonesome
Old, Low, and Lonesome


I’ve been thrown, laid down left alone,
Bound to be rejected by the seeds I’ve sown.

And my home, like a barren bone,
On the day my youngest left it saw how old I’d grown.

Wake up in the morning listing to the streets
Most days I long to join them, but I’m stuck here to the sheets.
Someday I’ll die here in these sheets.

Old, low, and lonesome
Old, low, and lonesome

And my ways, damn this old man’s ways.
In the still they were perfected sent my mind ablaze.

Wake up in the morning listening to the streets.
Most days I long to join them, but I’m stuck here to the sheets.
Someday I’ll die here in these sheets.

Old, low, and lonesome
Old, low, and lonesome
Track Name: You Set Me
You Set Me

Oh, it was a sight to see when she set him down
And set her sights on me
Never thought the world could be
A place where getting down was just a luxury

You used to send me
Baa baa ba da ba Baa baa ba da ba
But now you set me
Baa baa ba da ba Baa baa da

Loose
Loose
Loose

Lost hope is something good for you
When you forget the loss and look towards something new
Well they say that nothing lasts
But tell me “what is love?”
And tell me, what’s the past?

You used to send me
Baa baa ba da ba Baa baa ba da ba
But now you set me
Baa baa ba da ba Baa baa da

Loose
Loose
Loose
Track Name: War be over
War Be Over

Two stars in the sky
Both so certain of the by and by
Well if they’d come down and give love a try
War’d be over

Strange land, foreign lips
For a second soldier’s guard it slips
If every moment ended up like this
War’d be over

You will find as you’re wandering outside your mind
That in time you will turn into somebody else
If you look in then maybe, just maybe, you’ll find
That to love you must first fall in love with yourself
Oh Selfishly, selflessly

Bulldog in the pound
Cause he couldn’t find no common ground
Well if you didn’t have to put him down
War’d be over
Track Name: High Time
High Time

She bites me once, I bark back too
I’ve got a hunch and she knows I do
Juliet you’re the East
And to the West is a war
Why the hell are we still even fighting it for?
Deep down we’re hoping we’re the other’s cure

Too long I’ve hurt on my own
And this pain’s only grown
Guess it’s high time
I left it behind me

Cause I ain’t the same man no more
And for once I feel sure
That it’s high time
I left him behind me

Where’s the medicine man?
He was drinking and he slipped out last night
With a curse for the world
Started swimming ‘til the shores left his sight
Back here on the coast we’re alone and we’re scared
Just blaming each other for what isn’t there
And who hurts worse?
Well, who really cares?

Too Long I’ve hurt on my own
And this pain’s only grown
Guess it’s high time
I left it behind me

Cause I ain’t the same man no more
And for once I feel sure
That it’s high time
I left him behind me
Track Name: Thank You
Thank You

I’d like to thank you
People I barely knew
I couldn’t lay me down, but you shined some light
On wanting to

I’d like to thank you
Folks who’ve said, “Give ‘em Hell!”
When it’s too dark to see, oh your simple words
Yeah they do me well

Though I still don’t know which way to go —
I got good friends all around me
Though I’m alone
They surround me

And I’d like to thank you
Face on a silver screen
Life from a bygone day, but you taught me some
Of what living means

And I’d like to thank you
Ghosts hanging round this town
Talking to those same walls and they’re telling me
Not to get so down

Though I still don’t know which way to go —
I got good friends all around me
Though I’m alone
They surround me

Well it’s just so nice having you to talk to
Well it’s just so nice having you to talk to
Well it’s just so nice…
