Track Name: Sugar
Oh, oh, long river flow, take some cane way my ol' mind
Oh, oh, long river flow, take your time and I'll take mine

I can't believe that we forgot to blame ourselves
For putting all that sugar in your veins

Brothers, sister, mama, we're all the same
We're all just fight'n' to keep the sugar from our veins

We drown the difference, burn it, that's our name
Nothing's changed

Ooo

We broke your skin to rake the past away
Too many roots for us to bend and change

Uranium and crude to say it straight
On land where brothers used to graze

Sixty thousand working hands to blame
And damned to tame the way she ebbs and wanes

I can't see you from
All the heights that we have claimed
Pulpits, podiums and pills
With walls and falls and rules
And rules for making change
We all raged
Like the fire 'neath a falling winter's rain

That came to drown the sounding of our names
In tainted tales and seeds for shady change

Alone at night, the whispers keep you sane
Histories like symphonies in a presently deranged

Wet and wine and burn in holy names
'Til we all look the same
Track Name: Vagabond
Train go wahoo, train go wahoo
Train go wahoo, train go wahoo
Out of this town, out of this town
She's gotta get outta this town

Twenty-four years old with nothing on her back
She's got nowhere to go, she's not coming back
She longs to be a vagabond, she longs to be a vagabond

Train go wahoo, train go wahoo
Train go wahoo, train go wahoo
Out of this town, out of this town
She's gotta get outta this town
Track Name: Hymn of Our Minds
You were bound to a man who was bound to his bed
With a mouth full of hands and regrets made of lead
A litany of thoughts, not a leak of my lips
'Cause I buried your mum and I buried your pops
But I buried you first like the source of all crops
Rang a fast, rendered poem

You should hear the low godless growl
You should hear the low godless growl

The year you were born the year that you died
Relief on the face of stone when it shown
That dash is all we have known
When it shown, when it shown
Like the hymn of our minds
Let it shine let it shine

Our feet in the sand and the emerald tide
Some things you swallow them whole

The hymn of our minds
Let us shine let us shine
The miners they mine with the
Gem of a soul
But this here’s a mine for coal
So I’m told

Some things they’ll swallow you whole
Some things you swallow them whole
Track Name: Walking Cane
Hand me down my walking cane
Hand me down my walking cane
Hand me down my walking cane
I'm going to leave on the midnight train
'Cause all my sins are taken away

I got drunk and I got in jail
I got drunk and I got in jail
I got drunk and I got in jail
But I had no one to pay my bail
'Cause all my sins are taken away

Beans was tough and the meat was fat
Beans was tough and the meat was fat
Beans was tough and the meat was fat
Oh my Lord I couldn't eat that
'Cause all my sins are taken away

If I'd listened to what my mamma said
If I'd listened to what my mamma said
Oh if I'd listened to what my mamma said
I'd be sleeping on a feathered bed
'Cause all my sins are taken away
Track Name: Scatter the Rain
Scatter the rain, water the dark
It's easy for us to be apart
Glow in the day, roast in the night
All I know is all that's in sight

Baby on time, young hope expires
Bending over a bed of coals
Linen the train, cripple the cane
Break your candy trails home

Frosting the flower, restless for hours
Fall on the boat, and float away
Sad in the day, warm in the night
You know I'll never grow old

You had it all before
You let it fall, let it fall
We're a smear through time
Poignant when we shine
Track Name: Patrick Swayze
This is the day Patrick Swazy died
Oh this is the day, Patrick Swazy died
Low to your mama, by and by
Oh this is the day that Patrick Swazy died

Go tell your sister, dry your eyes
No more lifting baby in the sky
Swazy and Jackson catching fire flies
Cause these are days of Patrick Swazy’s eyes
Track Name: Hopeful Future
First sight of you when I awake in the morn', could not be better
Touch on my skin never wanting it to end, feeling the comfort

Morning to midnight whether here or there always on my mind

Looking in your eyes not a black hole but a sea, calming and wondrous
Silence we embrace true testament of us, comfort we share

Morning to midnight whether here or there always on my mind

Never a goodbye always see you later, hopeful future

Only a dream hauntingly realistic to be forgotten
Track Name: Path Turning Woe
Some broken, stay broken
Some shocks come real slow

What’s there to really do for you,
If it ain’t sharing, one can’t take no giving to
On a path turning woe

Sleeping in arcades with unholy ghosts,
Should have’s and gone
Combing molasses with a babies breath,
On a path turning woe

Just a shadow, if’n we push through
Looks like hell when you can’t move
We can name all the children, call-in the clouds
Never knew how much or for who.
Tuck in forever, tussle playful hair

And that’s the deal breaker

Oh, how I couldn’t bare
I can make you quit this
God I know how

A monument to labor and we ain’t working
And that’s a deal breaker
Track Name: Great Captain
To the wards of past time I implore
A request from captain's chair
The final Inquiry

As to the space ship of my desire
For this I have sought your council
I am the great captain famed of cape
And laser pistol

My hour, a thousand hours
My utterance a volume
Like all good captain's I bare the alms of a storied life
My song a cadence like mud and lightening

Not the first, but the first for each
More mud than lightning
Great gravity calls
Requesting captain's chair

My hour, a thousand hours
My utterance a volume
Like all, good captains
I bare the alms of a storied life
My song a cadence
Like mud and lighting
Track Name: No Sympathy
Mamma doesn't need our sympathy
Mamma doesn't need our sympathy

She sweeps she sweeps she cleans
She drifts she drifts she dreams
Her children all asleep
She cleans she cleans she cleans

Mamma doesn't need our sympathy
Mamma doesn't need our sympathy

She grows she grows she feeds
Her children are all pleased
She's taking none to eat
She feeds she feeds she feeds

Mamma doesn't need our sympathy
Mamma doesn't need our sympathy

Everything we throw in the river floats down stream
Straight into our mamma's mouth
And through her liver and spleen

She's filtering filtering
She cleans she clean she cleans

Mamma doesn't need our sympathy
Mamma doesn't need our sympathy
Track Name: Oh My Darling
Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How the hell will love find us here?
Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How will we make another year?

Tossing away all the old mystery
Collecting and keeping all the things we can see
Everything is real
The magic’s worn thin
You taught me to fight
But I learned how to win

Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How the hell will love find us here?
Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How will we make another year?

There’s a million gone heroes just a waving at me
Like the wind-licken grass in the soft summer’s breeze
We pushed till it broke, she’d laid us right down
Like the words in your head when there’s no one around

Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How the hell will love find us here?
Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How will we make another year?

Labor of love our muscles sure heave
I’d swear there were rocks in the hem of our dreams
I’d swear there were stones in the hem of our years

Singing oh my darling oh my dear
Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How the hell will love find us here?
Singing oh my darling, oh my dear
How will we make another year?

There’s a million gone heroes just a look’n and wave’n at me
Like a land locked pirate forced to sail without the sea
