Track Name: Carry Me Home Once Again
Eucalyptus Hills and morning rain
Frosted blades of grass in sun and shade

Pepper corns that fall upon the pave
Swept away but always come back in spring

My two dogs
Everything I’ve lost
And colored trees that’ll carry me home once again

Mom and Dad
Paintings on the walls
And empty songs that’ll carry me home once again
Will they carry me home

Palace Way and Union after dark
Endless walls of windows watch us walk
Narrow streets that tread into the park
a single block of strangers arm to arm

All my wealth
Every stone I’ve won
an empty room that’ll carry me home once again

Sores and welts
A living hell I wrote
And empty songs that’ll carry me home once again
I will carry me home once again
I will carry me home
Track Name: Saplings
I regret what I am
Just a bootleg man

Living on plains greater than I
With a hook I’ll try
To stab at the light
That I dream is in me

Oak trees and saplings float free
Through the morning breeze
But my fingers were not clean
Cause I picked them anxiously
Till they tired of me

I let the gin burn in my eyes
Blinding the moments left to dry

Couldn’t tell you virtue from sin
Can’t find the wound to mend
In the mountain’s grin
Where I reach with phantom limb
To relieve my screams
To release my dreams
Track Name: Sand Trees
Sand Trees in the wake
of a beautiful new ocean I had made
water whispered through the rocks
as the sunset hit the docks

my love never came
and I couldn’t lift myself up out of bed
so the water dried away
and left a desert in its place

stillness of the house where I was born and raised
maybe I could make it if I start all over again
and the water would replenish all the sand
and I’d hold another’s hand
and I’d find myself again

broken skin and mange
that infected every body i had seen
left me lonely and afraid
i’d never touch another thing

stillness of the house where I was born and raised
maybe I could make it if I start again
I want to forget
I want to forget
