Track Name: Covered In Dust
Spin my tires
Start my fires
I will wade on through.
Castle red
I'll be dead
Long before you.
I will die a poor man
Covered in dust,
Dreaming of you.

Tip toes
Plain clothes
I am a closed hand.
Chipped brow
I hope you understand.
Track Name: In Painted Chambers
does it rain inside your head
do you still take your skateboard out for a ride
when it snows
in the wintertime
and the day fades into blues and grays
i woke up
there were strangers standing in my room
and I fell asleep again
just a consequence of time I guess

slim rider talks so sweet
but make it happen and make us see
you talk so proud and I know you mean it

i will find a way
to make this our own
build us a home
while love lies there sleeping

i will follow through
with our plans for tomorrow
yeah, our love is asleep
in painted chambers

grace, beauty and kindness are
wasted on the young
and the old
i guess that means everyone

days are long when you
let them pass you by
i once wasted a morning
yeah, I waved it goodbye

mother spirit spoke
and I cried
mother spirit spoke
yeah, I cried like hell

still runs the river
that takes you through your day
you were singing song of love and joy
don’t forget them

i will see us through
even when day breaks
even when love ends
yeah, there`s room for us all
Track Name: Moon River
Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Track Name: Rev Wilson
from down here yeah i smell the grass
lying dead on the ground with my broken hands
i was a clown following everywhere
said we`ll see how it goes when i`m there

i was the reason
now we`re sittin here broke and chained
when i write my will i`ll add one thing
please throw my ass in the sea

when the sunlight gets in my eyes
i`ll put live/dead hoping i`ll be safe inside
i went up like a rocket
came full force down like a brick
i`ll be the last one standing on this sinking ship

on two feet baby it`s hard to walk
with my face turned down i kiss the dirt when i talk
i sweat in the sun i died at sea
said i`ll see ya when we meet

i can`t stand it
you`re so hard to please
i can`t stand it
they say it`s easy to breathe
Track Name: No Place To Fall
If I had no place to fall
And I needed to
Could I count on you
To lay me down?

I'd never tell you no lies
I don't believe it's wise
You got pretty eyes
Won't you spin me 'round

I ain't much of a lover it's true
I'm here then I'm gone
And I'm forever blue
But I'm sure wanting you

Skies full of silver and gold
Try to hide the sun
But it can't be done
Least not for long

And if we help each other grow
While the light of day
Smiles down our way
Then we can't go wrong

Time, she's a fast old train
She's here then she's gone
And she won't come again
Won't you take my hand

If I had no place to fall
And I needed to
Could I count on you
To lay me down?
