Track Name: I, Said The Sparrow
Skipping Robin calmly playing
Blind or unaware
On the grass without a care

Softly swaying willow; Bending
down he grabs his feast
The softest prize between his beaks
Why’s it wrong? How could he know?
But it’s still too much to let him go

Now the wind is falling,
From the branches calling
As an only warning
Cutting through the morning
Up above him leering
Though he still can’t hear him
It’s no surprise when
The arrow strikes him in the eye
Resounding with a muted cry

His body falls down crashing
The scene before him flashing
Still he can’t imagine
How they let this happen
And as he comes down near him
Sparrow can see him bleeding
There will be no arrest
He drops his knee onto his chest
His blood the color of his breast
His dying song: What have you done?
Your arrow took another one
Track Name: Fallen
Sitting around in quiet bliss
Unweathered and without a sound
The pitter-patter and passing trains
Of seasons going ‘round

Summer days now fade away
And I’m behind them crawling
Is it the end when all the leaves are falling?

Mexican Train and Pick-Up Sticks
Helping the hours by
A broken branch in front of my door
The victim of Autumn’s cry

Summer days now fade away
And I’m behind them crawling
Is it the end when all the leaves are falling?

Walking around this desert town
The soles of my feet now frozen and weak
As the ice from the sky caresses my eye
The cold from within now cracking my skin
Fingers and hands feeling battered and bruised
The new season starts feeling old and used

Summer days now fade away
And I’m behind them crawling
Is it the end when all the leaves are falling?
Track Name: Hold Me Down
I’ve never been frightened of aging
‘Cause aging never meant growing old
But now that daylight is rapidly fading
And the night seems dark and cold

Though the mind is a thing of wonder
It’s the body that keeps it at bay
Now as my body gets weaker and weaker
I feel my mind slowly going astray

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore

Young hearts are accustomed to breaking
They mend with water and time
Now the hours in my glass, they are tumbling
The well is dry and the sand is too fine

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore

These hands, they were made for building
They built the dam and the well
That kept us alive and helped us to thrive
‘Till the sound of the tolling bell

Now the mortar is cracked and failing
The stones, they are weakened and frayed
Soon the trickle will turn to flowing
And the river will dance me away

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore

From this bed I hear all of you crying
And though it hurts, I don’t want you to stay
Because the truth is I’m frightened of dying
And I don’t want to be lifted away

Hold, hold me down
‘Cause I can’t hold on anymore
Track Name: Us
Hey babe, give it a rest
It’s starting to weigh both of us down
Hey babe, don’t obsess
Let’s pack up and get out of town

Hey babe, just let it go
I said that I’m here ‘till the end
Hey babe, we’ll go with the flow
Believe me it’s not us, it’s them

There’s no need to determine direction
Just as long as we’re sure of the path
A path that can lead to reflection
That can make us laugh

Hey babe, you know it’s absurd
We can’t sort things out using words
Hey babe, what’s the fuss?
You know it’s just us being us

Sometimes it may feel like defection
But we’re really just finding some space
A space for our own resurrection
For our saving grace

Walking in this hall of mirrors shows me what we’ve become
As the pulse of each step shakes the past like the beat of the drum
And I know that it’s because I’m alone that I feel so confused
But that’s when, behind the glass, I catch a glimpse of you

Sometimes it may feel like defection
But we’re really just finding some space
A space for our own resurrection
For our saving grace
Track Name: Thank You And Good Night
Thank you and goodnight
It’s time to shut the lights
Even though we must go
There is always tomorrow

Play a song
Say a word
Sing along
Raise a hand
Make a vow
Bite your lip
Take a bow

Thank you and goodnight
It’s time to shut the lights
Even though we must go
There is always tomorrow

Fake a smile
Keep things light
For a while
If that’s ok
At least for now
Sell your shit
And take a bow

Thank you and goodnight
It’s time to shut the lights
Even though we must go
There is always tomorrow

All the bitterness rotting my head
I don’t mean to pester, but I don’t want to beg
If this is my winter the snow is my bed
Say, is something wrong?

Thank you and goodnight
It’s time to shut the lights
Even though we must go
There is always tomorrow
Track Name: A Way Away
A wish is as good as a prayer
And a glance, as good as a stare
If words fall on deaf ears
And eyes no longer care

Why is it so that I can’t let you go?
It gets harder the harder I try
All signs of resolve just seem to dissolve
With each part of you I descry

Why can’t I find a way away from your arms?
Why can’t I stay away from your harm?
Why can’t I find a way away from your arms?
Why can’t I stay away?

When you were a rose all I touched was your thorns
When you were a beast all I felt was your horn
I needed it cool, you needed to yearn
I needed your breath, you needed to burn

The toxic perfumes of our passion consumed
Leave me breathless and gasping for air
The more I push away, the more you want to stay
To cradle me in my despair

To feel your kiss is to feel your scorn
To hear your voice is to hear your roar
The loss of your touch is a loss that I mourn
But I wanted this and you wanted more

Now I don’t know why, with each passage I try
I just end up closer to you
And as I string along this here chaplet of songs
It draws you into me to
Track Name: Weeping Mary
Turn around and look at me
I’ve been yours for all these years
Take my hand to cover your ears
As I walk away you won’t hear me leave

For you, for me, for a love that couldn’t be
For the eyes of my weeping Mary

Through these eyes I see

Through all your layers I tried to tear
But I don’t have it in me to tear anymore
With your Cyprian ways I no longer care
And I’d better stop tearing before I reach your core

For the fallen Lord in the arms of his whore
In the arms of his weeping Mary

In these arms I hold

Twenty miles west of Rusk in Southern Cherokee
Is a shrine to those who have found and lost
For all those years they wished to be free
See they never measured what freedom would cost

For those, it is true, who still carry the cross
For the poor souls of Weeping Mary

To each a cross to bear
Track Name: Rest Of My Life
It’s one thing being happy or feeling complete
But where’s all the passion we were feeling last week
I know we just met, but I’m walking away
‘Cause if love ain’t perfection, then why should I stay?

I know what I’ve seen; it seems so obscene
Lovers holding hands in the park
For now it seems rough but I know I’m better off
Crying alone in the dark

I might regret you
But I’ll probably forget you
If not today, then tomorrow, and for the rest of my life
Track Name: From The Start
If you plant a seed,
Then stand and watch it grow
Nothing changes
As the roots take hold below

So before it’s too late
Set yourself up for a different fate
Put your knee on the ground
Hold it close. Turn it around

You gotta love from the start
It’s the most important part
Eye to eye, heart to heart,
If you don’t, things fall apart

You gotta love from the start
Keep the horse before the cart
Eye to eye, heart to heart,
You gotta love from the start

You start to walk
And everything feels too slow
But you don’t start running
‘Cause you’re too caught up in the flow

So before it’s too late
Set yourself up for a different fate
Put your foot on the ground
Find your stride. Turn it around

You gotta love from the start
It’s the most important part
Eye to eye, heart to heart,
If you don’t, things fall apart

You gotta love from the start
Keep the horse before the cart
Eye to eye, heart to heart,
You gotta love from the start

You touch her hand
And your whole heart starts to glow
You keep it cool
‘Cause you don’t want to let it show

So before it’s too late
Set yourself up for a different fate
Put your knee on the ground
Hold her close. Turn it around

You gotta love from the start
It’s the most important part
Eye to eye, heart to heart,
If you don’t, things fall apart

You gotta love from the start
Keep the horse before the cart
Eye to eye, heart to heart,
You gotta love from the start
