Coming to see you through the window Hands are bleeding from the thorns in the vine Got a backpack full of sweet snacks Car is parked by the willow around the back You’re in bed sleeping with an open bible And I’ve been waiting for this moment for quite a while Too afraid to imagine The world beyond these walls Your head is filled with stories Of stumbles and falls I wanna wake you and see your eyes glow Watch you curl and stretch out like a cat With the moonlight shining so bright In my mind I flash a picture of this night Your parents say I infect you with my dreams Would leaving here be the worst catastrophe Too tangled in your own thoughts To have a true perspective Everyone around you Takes more than they give Stepping forward I kiss your forehead Brush your hair away and out of your mouth Envision strange roads longing shadows Passing landscapes we’ve only seen in books I can’t bear to wake you from the dream you’re in It’s just a future I’ll continue to imagine Just a fantasy I let myself get caught in

You saw the heavenly host on a Friday night It was more than you could ever conceive But if you want to get a view of eternity You'll have to roll up your sleeves 17,000 miles 12 long years Joy lies undiscovered But for now just tears Moon send down the sails Lost where the other ones roam Moon send down the sails And the last ones roam The last thing we saw when we left L.A. Was a woman falling off of the pier Right about then you turned to say "I sure hope you know how to steer" If we ever make it home, well I hope we'll say I ain't ever been proud of nothing That just came my way Moon send down the sails Lost where the other ones roam Moon send down the sails And the last ones roam Off the front porch and down to the sea Roam off the front porch and down to the sea Roam off the front porch and down to the sea Moon send down the sails Moon send down the sails Moon send down the sails Lost where the other ones roam Moon send down the sails And the last ones roam

Dislocated 02:34
Wrestling through the back yard Tearing up the gardenias Mom at her window Weakened with Leukemia Tugging my arm away You pulled it from the socket Mom ran to me Ice cubes in a bucket This used to happen to your father When he worked out in the harbor Looking into my eyes Her eyes soft and powdery Taking my hand She said that she was proud of me Laying in the flower bed Looking up at the clouds Mom yanked my arm I screamed her name aloud Now when a storm is coming closer I think back about my mother As everything tightens and strains And I walk in the rain

Deserting 02:12
Turn your head and walk away Down in San Francisco Bay You'll come again but not today The meeting's been adjourned On the way home suit yourself A couple glasses to your health Those goddamn monks don't spread the wealth So now you'll take your turn Every ounce of you exhausted by The things that used to get you high Waking up to hear the morning bell How you hate it you would never tell You came across a microfilm A vision you could not condemn Six hundred workers following A woman dressed in white You've been cooped up way too long So move your feet and hum that song Ocean air can't do you wrong Deserting starts tonight All the others on their ego trips In the race to reach enlightenment Dinner's dishes are all left undone Wake up in the morning: you'll be gone

Already Gone 04:32
Cold hearted in California Somehow I missed it when it was warmer Slow motion wallowing in my head Drawing all the things I might forget I’ll play my stupid songs Enjoy the drugs I’m on If you hadn’t noticed yet I’m already gone Hold steady is what they always tell me Weathering the storm until I’m ready (like a pine tree) Grow wild I’m always halfway there Waiting for my chance to disappear I’ll play my stupid songs Enjoy the drugs I’m on If you hadn’t noticed yet I’m already gone Harboring these secrets that you left me When all I see is setting these things free Cold blooded you let the light come in Now I see the words that I’ve been writing Show nothing obscure the real intent No one ever speaks in my defense I’ll play my stupid songs Enjoy the drugs I’m on If you hadn’t noticed yet I’m already gone

Green River 04:42
Green River, Green River, lend me your ear You're an impartial judge of this condition, I hear I've been wigging right out now for the third time this year The seasons are changing but I'm not I fear Green River, Green River, nothing was clear I raised the alarm like I was Paul Revere The neighbors were angry, "Hey, what's the big idear?" I felt sheepish; I came down with this bottle of beer And you said: Nothing will be ruined And nothing will be lost You're holding on so tightly To something no one even wants So let go And be free Green River, Green River, I found you last night With a head full of worry and a heart full of spite I shouted "where's the goddamn map, I mean where's the promised light?" Green River, you laughed and you called me uptight And you said: Nothing will be ruined And nothing will be lost You're holding on so tightly To something no one even wants So let go And be free Be at peace And be free

Now Or Never 03:22
Ripping up floorboards pulling down lath Watch for the neighbor that sociopath Wearing your goggles breathing mask I would have helped you but you never asked Seems every molecule has been rearranged You are becoming someone new again You need a new way to cover up this old pain There was a fresh coat a hard cleansing rain There’s never been a better time For you to remember Everything is fluttering I guess it’s now or never

If we have to give it a name With you splayed out on the floor My stomach full With something that we found In that health food store There's a never-ending expanse of white Outside our window And I don't know What we'd call that either Round here I think they call it Maine I was thinking about calling it a day Checking out Biting the bullet Throwing in the towel You said there's a place for people like that Some folks call it the synagogue I was relieved I thought you mentioned God Are we running out of time? Is this the last night the sun will set After four o'clock? Is this the last night We'll spend all evening Antagonizing the cat and the dog?

Hollow Rooms 03:19
The bump on your shoulder the nape of your neck Those tiny toenails The scar on your finger the curve of your hips Hairs on your ear lobe the bones in your wrist All of the parts I’ll forget to remember The way that your hands curl inside your sweater I’m walking hollow rooms It’s all that I can do Painting over these walls Forgetting it all I look in the mirror study the image Assessing the defects The city is empty except for us dogs All left or leaving the highways are clogged You’re on your bike now you’re in a plane A rocket ship hurtling so far away I’m walking hollow rooms It’s all that I can do Painting over these walls Forgetting it all I’ve forgotten the feeling of falling in love All I can hope for is never enough Sensing a tremor pulsing in time I look out the window the sun and the river and how they align
10.
Blue Heart 03:34
With that much blood on the snow I know you've thought it might be time To turn around, to turn around Those fallen trees might not be What they seem to be and you're unsure Of the source, unsure of the source Of those sounds Blue heart meet my metal heart Show me a true heart Wise heart, the warm heart You've known it for ten thousand years And there is someone Protecting you, protecting you And you will meet them again And you will meet them again Clear as crystal Bright as birdsong Warm as windows in the sun You will meet them again You will meet them again
