Track Name: Waiting
Windows down, radio low
With the weight of tired eyes

Spring hours here, moving slow
Like one long waking sigh

One more client... Four more to go
I'll be working all night

Through the rear view window
shining white light

I'm just waiting for...
working...
never making ends...

See you standing, in yellow fields
see your house on that hill
I know these dreams were always built to spill

You're so many miles away
You live in another time
I'm working to have these measures align

I'm just waiting for...
working...
never making ends...

I'm just waiting for...
(What do these hours have to show?)
working...
(Running through sunlit groves?)
never making ends...
(Shadows reaching from the groves?)

A listless climb for endless labor
You bend your knees for their favor
One gold star for good behavior
And you'll condemn to your good savior


I'm just waiting for...
(What do these hours have to show?)
working...
(Running through sunlit groves?)
never making ends...
(Shadows reaching from the groves?)
Track Name: Isis and Osiris
When it comes to this
I'd rather sleep out in the rain
I'd rather drown myself in words
From someone else who's half insane

So when it comes to this
How could i be so caught off gaurd
No signal for the fade out
So little disregard

And you alone can't save us from this
When it's broken to pieces
We're as helpless as Isis

And I alone got room for this
Fractured on the floor
We're as broke as Osiris

When it's come to this
Empty words of reverie
A suitcase in the car
Full of clothes and debris

When that's become this
Might as well begin the wake
Parade it down main street
Like clouds on a summer's day

And you alone can't save us from this
When it's broken to pieces
We're as helpless as Isis

And I alone got no room in this
Fractured on the floor
We're as broke as Osiris
Track Name: Strange
Did I see you down the hall?
Right where the moonlight falls?
Windblown curtains wear you like a shawl
As if you never changed at all

Lean into a cliffside wind
Playing me like a violin
Yeah, just take it on the chin
I'm gonna bear it and grin

You know it's gonna break your heart
That someone's gonna change
So why you feel compelled to start
Love is wild, love is strange

Weaving in and out of time
Driving down that same white line
These country roads, nowhere in mind
Hope one day to realign

There is that photograph of you
A boat graveyard, an icy hue
Somewhere in there's a clue
I still pray to that headland pew

You know it's gonna break your heart
That someone's gonna change
So why you feel compelled to start
Love is wild, love is strange

Did I see you down the hall?
Right where the moonlight falls?
Windblown curtains wear you like a shawl
As if you never changed at all
Track Name: Easter Sky
Lay neath that Easter sky laughing
You're twirling like a child, shining
let's take it easy, darlin
it's the time of the mild minding

send your heart out like a kite, soaring
let your whole light expand, pouring
radiate across the sky
all the pain as it stands foreign

let the whole world pull you into me
let the high roads lead you to me
let the warm breeze lean you into me
let all those words say you're into me

lead you through groves, vanish
to a moonlight glade, vanish
ribboned in the riverbed, vanish
California stars cascade, vanish

let the whole world pull you into me
let the high roads lead you to me
let the warm breeze lean you into me
let all those words say you're into me

Hear the front door unlock, someday
hear your footprints down the hall, someday
see you leaning on the door frame, someday
our baby sounding on the wall, oneday

let the whole world pull you into me
let the high roads lead you to me
let the warm breeze lean you into me
let all those words say you're into me
Track Name: A Deserved Blues
I'm a snowflake, special snowflake
my rhymes are even-handed
got rhymes, dangerous rhymes
you know they're even-handed
you think i don't know what i'm talking about
look at my library and you'll have no doubt
i''m a snowflake, special snowflake
my arms are even-handed

i drop names, epic names
some are over-rated
i got cheese, so much cheese
you know i'm sophisticated
you think i don't know what i'm talking about
look at my library and you'll have no doubt
i got cheese, so much cheese
yeah, im that sophisticated

you think i don't know what i'm talking about
look at my library and you'll have no doubt
snow flake, special snow flake
it's just that complicated
