Track Name: What To Do
Maybe if I knew what to do I would do it
Why you tryna bring me down?

Maybe if I knew the truth I could prove it
Why you tryna bring me down?

Look outside
The heavy rain is falling
Who gonna see your tears?

Where do you go when you get away, darling?
I only wanna calm your tears

All your tears...

Maybe if I knew what to do I would prove it
Maybe if I knew what to prove I would do it
Track Name: Fodder for Heaven
I can't give all the joy
I can't give you all the love
I can't spare you all the pain
I ain't watching from above
Baby, I'm just like you
Fodder for Heaven

Madrona trees in the splitting sun
Salt air along the rocky shores back home
I want to know if Heaven is a place of innocence does it exist in our memories of youth?
I'm just a boy grown tall, that's all...

I can't give all the joy
I can't give you all the love
I can't spare you all the pain
I just watching from above
Baby, I'm just like you
Fodder for Heaven

Flipping through the novel of my days
Everything fell right into place
Got no cares, got no haste
When I look back in my mind
A foggy lens and slowed-down time...
(Pretty music playing) gracefully

I can't give all the joy
I can't give you all the love
I can't spare you all the pain
I ain't watching from above
Baby, I'm just like you now
Fodder for Heaven
Track Name: End of the Road
Baby girl grew up and had her own
He got word and he hit the road
Three days out he got wise
Turn the car around with tears in his eyes

Prayers on his breath
More than wishes and hopes
Every dream became a theft
Either stolen or broke
Age will come
Just as time will go
But won't you meet me, baby
At the end of the road

As the crimes pile up they disappear
Like walking 'cross a bed of nails
She said, "I never thought I'd find you here."
It's a tale I didn't want to tell

Prayers on his breath
More than wishes and hopes
Every dream became a theft
Either stolen or broke
Age will come
Just as time will go
But won't you meet me, baby
At the end of the road
Track Name: Again and Again
May you not acquire all your objects of desire
Be a dirty little tragedy to satiate the journey
Coming from a land where birds sing a pretty song
Ya learn the worth of a dollar and how to catch a cannonball

There was blood on the will
When the imposter came around
You said, "That's the kind of trouble I been looking for..."
The coin of the realm can be earned or found

And with a grand variety of suffering
I think I'll love you for your virtues
You're leading a life you wanna live
Now live it again, live it again
Would you wanna live it again?
Again and again and again...
Track Name: Death
You're so bored and so what
You've already given up
"What's the point if nothing matters anyway?"
What's the value of your life when you're on the The Price is Right?
We got hemlock milkshakes from the girl in the roller skates

Tell me do you love the living when you feel like you're dying?

Problems come and find ya like they always will
You ain't unlucky that's just the deal
I made it, too
We're both still here
Sand running through our hands
Degraded souls and hardened hearts
Whatcha looking forward to in the dark?
Please don't believe all the shit that you heard them say about you

Tell me do you love the living when you feel like you're dying?
Track Name: Big Mama
Don't waste your time chasing shadows in the dark
They follow you like friends in the sunshine
Don't waste your time getting cold at night
All your shivers won't convert anyone
Don't waste your time begging the Earth to meet your feet when you're walking
She'll be there in the morning
Ya, it's you that will leave her

She ain't scared of changing
She knows it better than you do
Look at the places that she's taken you to
And it's nothing to her
No, no, no--she's a rock
Oh, the mess that we've made ain't lost on me, baby
Oh no
Cast before us is the truth as we seek it
May it be found in new ways when we hear others speak it
There's a Spirit in the word
And the Spirit roams free
I heard it singing from the pipes and shaking through the trees
Sometimes is rumbles down the tracks
In between two lover's grasps
And cracks the wood amidst the flame
And bends the giant 'long the grain
May we all delight the Gods before the end of time

She ain't scared of changing
She knows it better than you do
Look at the places that she's taken you to
And it's nothing to her
No, no, no--she's a rock
Oh, the mess that we've made ain't lost on me, baby
Oh no
