Track Name: An Anonymous Inheritance
Oh the tide rushed up the shore
washed away all the things we did before
oh the tide rushed up the shore
footprints from where we walked before
oh mother take me home
i'm in a place i've never been before
oh mother take me home
i'm in a place i've never

been before
and it's a long long way to the curry fair
where i've been workin' 9-5 operating rides
watching kids come in and get drunk
off the wine that their father made
passed down by mouth from a former day
and the taste is a thought in the child's head
planted there by a man that's long since dead

you don't know me, nor i you
faded with time and so will you
drink in your cup, the only think
oh, that survived all this
death
and the birth
and the fall
and the spring
everything

Oh the tide rushed up the shore
washed away all the things we did before
oh the tide rushed up the shore
footprints from where we walked before
oh mother take me home
i'm in a place i've never been before
oh mother take me home
i'm in a place i've never

been before
it's a long long way from Dahlenburg
and i've been working 9-9
in the gravel mine
all the roads were said to be gold
but i sold my name for a smile
pull the grape from the vine and ferment a while
and the taste is a thought in the child's head
planted there by a man that's long since dead

you don't know me, nor i you
faded with time and so will you, it's true
drink in your cup, the only think
oh, that survived all this
death
and the birth
and the fall
and the spring
everything
everything
everything
Track Name: The Arrival
I think we reached it
Can't believe it
We found the best thing ever
I think we reached it
Hiked a hill a hill so high, the sun lit up our hands
Lift up our hands

To the whisperer said she
Two pairs of hands is all we've got to lift each other up

My baby, she's so good to me
I pick her up just like a flower
And lately it gets me in the knees
She knocks me out
She's super-powered

I think we reached it
Can't believe it
We found the best thing ever
I think we reached it
Hiked a hill a hill so high, the sun lit up our hands
Lift up our hands

To the whisperer said she
Two pairs of hands is all we've got to lift each other up
Track Name: The Orchard
All the leaves are singing now
With last years shells upon the ground

These trees can be a lovely place I know
The clouds peek through treetops and say

Can't have the sun without the rains
With so much love a little pain
It's not much of a price to pay
Track Name: Two Road-Trips to Ohio
Seemed like just a week ago
We were driving up from New Mexico
We hadn't met for four years
I was eighteen with so much left to know

If you could just hold on for me
I'll hold hand
If you could hold on for me
Hold your hand
If you could hold on for me

It's late in the day the piper has played
All of the songs that we requested of him
I beg him to stay play just one more
But he packs up his pipe and walks out the door

Hope that the last thing you heard wasn't us crying

Lie down now, you tried enough
Falling apart bones and the skin
So caught up don't know where it all went
Track Name: Long Distance, From Shangri-La(remix)
Babies grow up and grow old and fly away

Lost in the atmosphere
Floating up, floating up to nowhere
That's why we kind of act delusional

Looking up for something
On my knees and nothing evers come
And then I'm lying at night when a phone rings in my head

It's says
Don't waste no time
Thinking about dying
You just float up when it's time
You float up when it's time
I'll try not to cry

Lost in the atmostphere
Floating up I see the end it's near
I look down and it's so beautiful
I can see my children, all the things they're building
It'll all be gone one day, but that's OK

Don't waste no time
Thinking about dying
You just float up when it's time
You float up when it's time
I'll try not to cry
Track Name: The Fears
I wake up with anxiety
pop some pills and turn on the tv

Some faces talking to me
Surrounded from all sides the chatter's high

So I hop in the car for my daily trip
It's the risky bit, but I just deal with it

And traffic's bad - 2 dead on the road
Where did they go, where did they go

Now tension's high and the budget's low
last one in is the first one out the do(or)

Now he's laid off, but what did he do?
They sent him home and they won't tell you, Uh huh.

It's a messy game of politics
filled with slick and dirty tricks

See the messy game of politics
yes my friend you'll play a bit

I got the fears
so many fears...

Time to make dinner, what do I eat?
It looks like food and it tastes so sweet

You gotta keep up with your heath these days
There's a 1000 ways and you're gonna pay

It's getting hard for me to breathe
Who else is having thoughts like these?

And who do you trust these days
They're profit taking - you're the one that pays
Track Name: Short Days
Hold me hold me in your arms
The smell of home I forgot
But I can see it
I'm laying on the floor
A lazy Sunday I'd trade for a year right now

One more breath one less that I'll take

As I get older it seems I understand less
Things used make sense
Rain used to dance in my hand
But I can see it
I'm laying on the floor
A lazy Sunday I'd trade for a year right now

So kids you listen when they say
It's a short day
It's a short day
You should listen when they say
It's a short day
It's a short day
Track Name: Holy Ghost World Tour
Some years ago
They wrote down words in an ancient tome
Now they don't make sense to me
Do the words make sense to you

Praise to his name
But a name needs a face so we can conversate
But he hasn't come to our town
And it's left us all feeling down

I think what we need is a holy ghost world tour
Lights music and much more
We'll give those sceptics 'what for'

It's a show that'll teach you the secrets
Song and dance and his clever rhymes
It's all revealed with his mighty theatrics
About damn time

Well I'd like to see
And pump my fist when he drops the beat
Word up God
That was profound

They'll take proceeds
End world hunger and start world peace
Yeah I know it
Yeah He'll do it

I think what we need is a holy ghost world tour
Lights music and much more
We'll give those sceptics 'what for'

It's a show that'll teach you the secrets
Song and dance and his clever rhymes
It's all revealed with his mighty theatrics
About damn time

It's about time
It's long overdue
Coming to you
Holy Ghost World Tour!
Track Name: The Importance Of Being Practical Pt I
Looking back would I change things
Functions and logic just aren't that exciting
Your advice I sought
Gut my bubble burst and now i've dropped
105 chances to make your own life wiil you?

There's a horse in the field right there
He can't buck his rider up in the air
See the ox in the field with the plow
He will pull till he falls in the ground

Oh this life it's not what i thought it'd be
But it still amazes me

It's confused surreal and serene here
Bring the bacon home and fry it up (mmmm mmmm)
If i had a better view, sunny days and a nice pair of shoes
To shuffle along, shuffle board and a big house
And a nice big death bed.

Here we go!

Lay an egg for the farmer man in a cage on a farm you'll stay
Would a pig ever leave it's sty?
Lots of food and the mess it's made, it's made, it's made, it's made
I made this mess
Now clean it up, time to clean it up now...
Track Name: The Importance Of Being Practical Pt II
I waste my time
Thinking of better ways
To spend my time
Monday through friday

I waste my time
Thinking of better ways
To spend my life
Monday through friday

All I need is a way to take it back

Stick it out and follow through
It's been said to you

Your family's important too
Now hit those books and do

The rote and mind-numbing
Focus on this one thing

You'll be a cog within
A clockwork contraption

Spit out as they please
Replacements come easily

Spit out as they please
Replacements come easily
