Track Name: Cross the World
we had no idea what we were in for
3 boys trying to grow up strong
but we all found great comfort in music
and the journey that carried us along

we bought an old van, borrowed a drum set (Wimpy!)
got a $40 dollar bass from the farm next door
met a French Canadian in Rhode Island
who told us to keep our sticks down, keep our heads up, and get a lil something for (11!)

and we were trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world for what we had found

dropped the tranny in Effingham, Illinois
stealing gasoline in the freezing cold
once teenage friends now struggling with the place where the sidewalk ends
so we said goodbye in Boston, (by the banks of the) with that dirty water rolling on (BLUE MOON)

we were trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world for what we'd found

we were trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world (down and wait)
we were trying to cross the world for what we'd found

but then you all came out in New York
for a country that was so far away
I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you, there’s an Elias in Zimbabwe
who is smiling to know that his message did not fade away

and now
we’re trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world for what we'd found

we were trying to cross the world
we were trying to cross the world (down and wait)
we were trying to cross the world for what we'd found

we’re trying, we’re trying
Track Name: Daft Alchemist
heard of the mountain side, but I’d rather stay in here
gave me the 9 months, but I wish it was a year
things were going fine, I liked ‘em just they they were
but now I’m running of time, got to march upon the world

what a way to wake up in the world one day
what a way to wake up in the world I dare say
what a way to wake up in the world one day
what a way to wake up in the world and now I’m

I’m not going with you, I got half a crown
I’m not going with you, gonna melt it down

I’m not going, I’m just staying the same

oh me oh my my, why’s it always have to burn
bye and bye bye always someone got to learn
everything I thought I knew was blown to smithereens
and I don’t what to do now that everything has changed

what a way to wake up in the world one day
what a way to wake up in the world I dare say
what a way to wake up in the world one day
what a way to wake up in the world and now I’m

I’m not going with you, I got half a crown
I’m not going with you, gonna melt it down

what a way to wake up in the world one day
what a way to wake up in the world i dare say
what a way to wake up in the world one day
what a way to wake up in the world and now i’m

I’m not going with you, I got half a crown
I’m not going with you, gonna melt it down

mine all mine

I’m not going, I’m just staying the same
Track Name: London Daughters
Come all you London Daughters
And sons of the looking glass
Walking through the sullied water
Na na na you can’t go back
Feeding on the lost and fallen
Its all we’ve ever done
Can you hear their voices calling
Go now and put down your guns
And as the old wind blows
we’re going down then up

Come all you Dublin fathers
And your next of kin
Walking through the bloodied water
The cancer upon your skin
When we were hit will hit back harder
That’s our refrain
And we’ll make the war go longer
Just so they can know our pain
And as the cadence calls
We’re going down, down then up

Can you see a light burning up ahead
Or feel the wisdom in the ground
Can you hear the story carried in the wind
And see the bird flying up

Come all you wailing mothers
those who have lost so much
Show us how we begin to regain your touch
With your children everywhere
tracing family names
You’re walking miles and miles
To show them the way
And like the air in her lungs
We’re going down then, down then up
Track Name: So Good
staring at the pen and ink drawings
there’s a crow who’s starting to bleed
I go to the bookshelf, myself and a picture of a girl in a bikini
jumping off a dock falls out of page 43
I think it’s my brother’s old girlfriend who’s married to a woman now

my father walks like he’s run out of oil
he lurches and jerks his way around the farm
my mother walks towards him the same way she led her last horse away from the barn
we’d just built a fire to soften up the ground
you could see her saying through her tears it's okay boy, come follow me one last time

maybe, don’t know, can’t tell, if it’s so good
so good, so good, to be living right now

my kids are still young, barely weigh anything
I can carry them easy on each arm,
but I told them I wouldn’t be able to do that forever
and sometimes when I’m carrying them both
the older one says, hey look dad, you can still carry me

maybe, don’t know, can’t tell
yeah but it’s so good, so good to be living right now

so good, so good, it’s so good to be living right now

maybe, don’t know, can’t tell
yeah but it’s so good, so good to be living right now
yeah but it's so good, so good, it’s so good to be living right now
Track Name: Black Land Prairie
what a son to say father let them go
must’ve been a cappawock

gone to black land prairie
to a safe house to lay low

and I’ll ride again…

packed our bags for the Army of the James
gone to find the last medicine take place

gone to one way circus
save a bullet for yourself

then I’ll ride again..

still run, the caravan, the caravan, the caravan
Track Name: Came for the Fire
came for the fire
left before it was done
I’m yours till your heart’s desire
till you tell yourself there’s another one

I am frightened, you are silent
you’re my religion, I was your science
is this the war of our alliance, have I lost my part in your dream
and I am standing at attention
there is no science or religion
your eyes in perfect cold defiance, and I have never seen that look before

you poor the water
I would haul the stones
all the iron and the mortar
and all the other dreams that we left alone

I am frightened, you are silent
you’re my religion, I was your science
is this the war of our alliance, have I lost my part in your dream
and I am standing at attention
there is no science or religion
your eyes in perfect cold defiance, and I have never seen that look before
Track Name: Letter to Lady J
my dear old friend, it’s you we need
there’s blood in the gutters, and fear in the street
how long can we fight for a change that never comes

in some ways it’s the same, but tonight the crowd they came
fists in the air, candles and vigils, cracked dreams held together with curses and wishes

but how long’s it been since you been outside
how long’s it been since you open your eyes
cuz I've been to the line, and it’s all right there
and I cannot wait to get on from here

arms bent back and black jack welt
involuntary tears and the tears we felt
does it always have to get worse before it gets better

Virgil Caine where are you now
did they bury the hate when they buried the south
you got to tell the spirits mystics of tomorrow
Track Name: Don Juan Tango
oh daddy no, don’t you know there’s a hole
oh seven stories down – kind of like a hidden town
there they all wait for your words, for your hate
oh to tell them what’s to be done, kind of like a loaded gun

last dance tango
sure as the fox let the ginger man ride on his back
Don Juan tango
who’s gunna stop the playground bully and the atom attack

grabbing OPP in bed with the G.O.P
the pale moth, NRA, NFL, we won’t tell
all of this we feared, the politician and the mirror
new shock and awe, Johnny Law sign your name right here

last dance tango
sure as the fox let ginger man ride on his back
Don Juan tango
we live in a land where all you need is money and not to be black

little boy, fat man, bock’s car, over the foreign land
all is not fine
dark days, black haze, there he goes, bombs away
not once but twice
can you see all their eyes
after all these years since 8/6 and 9

and in this country we are armed to the teeth
with automatic rifles with clip a hundred rounds deep
and it’s a screwed up world, when her mistake was being a girl
and we watch the rising sea and we sing and take a knee

last dance tango
sure as the fox let the ginger man ride on his back
Don Juan tango,
we live in a land where god is money, it’s the rocket man and the maniac
last dance tango
sure as the fox let the ginger man ride on his back
stay tuned in your cocoon cuz this system will not last
Track Name: Follow I the River
leaves are falling, soon we’ll be able to see the river
from this road we are traveling for the winter
the land she takes us under her feathered wing

and fire light, go up and tell the night, that on my word

It’s not far away now, things are going to change now
if we only have today than follow I the river
stay right on your shoulder I

we’ll fade brighter and trust the water keeper
do you mind standing guard for the locust eaters
for they have brought us this far, let the white face stone their own

and fire light, go up and tell the night, that on my word

it’s not far away now, things are going to change now
if we only have today than follow I the river
stay right on your shoulder I

sweet delight of mine, won’t be long to we are gone,
the only way to go is towards the sun, my love, and give ‘em what they want,
may they love before they fear and hope is not undone

and fire light, go up and tell the night, that on my word

It’s not far away now, things are going to change now
if we only have today than follow I the river
stay right on your shoulder I
Track Name: Prisoner's Visitor
Billy was a live wire
makin hay while the sun shine
makin friends in the coal mine

Daisy and her new self
just come up from the deep south
to say goodbye one more time

What a lovely day for the prisoner to pray for his visitor to sing so loud
What a lovely day for the prisoner to pray for his visitor to turn back around

the heart inside the rib cage
looking out on the warm days
young sparks in the low light

one day he gonna go free
like 79 in the AD
he can open his ears but not his eyes

What a lovely day for the prisoner to pray for his visitor to sing so loud
What a lovely day for the prisoner to pray for his visitor to turn back around

gonna train it out of KC
if I don’t I’m gonna lose my mind
thank you for the groceries and the kiss long ago
you now I never tasted anything that I could say was just as fine

What a lovely day for the prisoner to pray for his visitor to sing so loud
What a lovely day for the prisoner to pray for his visitor to stay
