Lyrics

Had a dream about 8-track tapes / The catechism and Moby Grape / We got lost in another time / Where there’s no fast forward and you can’t rewind / Spun the bottle just to see / And chart the course of history / But it’s all gone / It’s all gone / So line up and wait your turn / For the things we never learn / ‘Cause it all falls out here tonight

Tail lights on a Pontiac / Cigarettes on a railroad track / I had a dream about 8-track tapes / Heard the gospel of Moby Grape / Dropped the needle just to see / What Omaha still means to me / ‘Cause it’s all gone / Yes it’s all gone / So line up and wait your turn / For the things we never learn / As it all falls down here / Forgive me father for I have sinned / I let the ghosts come back again tonight / But it’s all right / It’s all gone / It’s all gone / It’s all gone…

Lyrics

If I wrote you a love song in disappearing ink / Could you sing the words by heart / Or would you not know what to think? / I wish I could say everything to you without a sound / ‘Cause sometimes I get tired of running round

I knew a girl so sure that all that glitters is gold / She ran around until she found / That all the doors were closed / And with a word that no one heard / She stopped and sat back down / ‘Cause sometimes she gets tired of running round / Sometimes we get tired of running round  

If I every underestimate the wonder that you are / Please slap me like a drunk / Take my keys and call a car / Let’s build a house of things we didn’t mean / Then burn it down / ‘Cause sometimes we get tired of running round / Sometimes we get tired of running round / Sometimes we get tired of running…

Lyrics

Tone deaf, you got a smile / Turn it up, see me coming for a mile / It’s nice to see you, on the town / I’ll pick up you, when you put me down / In the corner of my mind / We got lost in double times / We got hours to kill you don’t need to spend another dime /  Sister soundcheck we’re playing tonight / Out of the shadows and into the light / Come away with me

Six inch twos and nowhere to fuse / Tell you sure, playing the blues / It’s nice to see you, on the town / You pick us up you, and we’ll put you down / In the corner of my mind it’s you and suddenly I’m fine / We got hours to kill don’t need to spend another dime / Sister soundcheck we’re playing tonight / Out of the shadows and into the light / Come away with me / Sister soundcheck your ears all right / Sister soundcheck we’re rocking tonight / Come away with me…

Sister soundcheck we’re playing tonight / Out of the shadows and into the light / Come away with me / Sister soundcheck your ears all right / Sister soundcheck we’re rocking tonight / Come away with me…

Lyrics

There was a time before it all went wrong / All eyes were dry / Sweet Musconetcong

Fallin’ down on these one ways and afterthoughts / Potholes filled with haloed ground / I still rely on the things that you never said / Please take me back Hackettstown

Lackawanna rain stone cold and overdrawn / The train derailed / Too many souls were gone

Bearing down on these one ways and afterthoughts / Potholes filled with haloed ground / I still rely on the things that you never said / Please take me back Hackettstown

Fallin’ down on these one ways and afterthoughts / Potholes filled with haloed ground / Still rely on the things that you never said / Please take me back Hackettstown...

Lyrics

I want everything / You want everything too / And in the end everything turns to dust between us

In between us there is a mountain with my name / There is a freeway wide and slow / There is a town called Patience / We missed the exit there

I want all of you / You want all of me too / And in the end all we do is build a wall around us

In between us there is a mountain with my name / There is a freeway wide and slow / There is a town called Patience / We missed the exit there

I want everything / And you want everything too... 

In between us there is a mountain with my name / There is a freeway wide and slow / There is a town called Patience / We missed the exit there

We missed the exit there...

Lyrics

I go for Palms / You go for majesty / We come for songs / You go for tragedy / What would you do, it could happen to you? / On the last day of your life

I go for Palms / You go for blasphemy / I do the wrongs / You make them right for me / What would you say, when it happens that way? / On the last day of your life mastery and beams of light / On the last day of your life

I go for Palms / Right where you're s'posed to be / Righting the wrongs / Be what you dare to be / What if she said, you'd be better off dead? / On the last day of your life mastery and beams of light / On the last day of your life

We'll go for Palms / You go for imagery / You'll go for anything, right where you're s'posed to be / And what if we said, we'd be better off dead? / On the last day of our lives / On the last day / You'd be better off dead / On the last day...

Lyrics

long haul roads and open arms / keep this country safe from harm / lift your hearts and buy american

shining towers, deep disguise / sell em short and feign surprise / hallelujah / buy american

we are marching on quicksand skyways / what kind of blood is in your heart / wait in lines of discontentment / all cigarettes and falling stars / pass the bottle round / and buy american

long haul roads and open arms / clouds of indecision here / foreclosing on ours

we are marching on quicksand skyways / what kind of blood is in your heart / wait in lines of discontentment / all cigarettes and falling stars / pass the bottle round / pass the bottle round / we hold these truths self-evident / and buy american

from the 2013 album Ghosts & Compromise

Lyrics

say a prayer for bankers, lies and cadillacs / and all the good years in the rearview that are never comin’ back / get in line on Sunday morning to wash away the pain / this river rises without warning / here comes the rain

here comes the rain / here comes the rain / we’re all drowning in salvation as the sky falls down again

say a prayer for the devil and the raritan / muddy water's in the basement singin’ ‘here we go again’ / get in line on Sunday morning / 'cuz it always ends the same / Jesus reckons without warning / here comes the rain

here comes the rain / here comes the rain / we’re all drowning in salvation as the sky falls down again

fallin’ down on this life / roll me over in the grave of this life / lay me down, lay me down in this life / fallin’ down

here comes the rain / here comes the rain / God bless this broken nation as the sky falls down again

Lyrics

i wish you the moon / if you get there soon / i wish you the moon

is it too much to ask you / could you stay right here and be all mine / my friends here they all know you / and when you come around you blows their minds

 

but I know where you’re coming from / yeah I know where you’re coming from

i wish you the moon / if you get there soon / i wish you the moon / i wish you the moon

is it too much to ask you / could you stay right here and be all mine / my friends here they all know you / and when you come around you blows their minds

i know where you’re coming from / leave yourself some room to run

i wish you the moon / if you get there soon / i wish you the moon / i wish you the moon
