Track Name: House to the Hill
from the house to the hill where i ran the dogs around
before i picked up dirty slang from the town
then i left my mom and dad and i spent all that i had
now they know i'm not near the man i was before.

when i found a love for the lost souls on the earth
i said i'd lead them on the road to mexico
there we'd start a land for the unkept and the banned
and for a hundred years or more we stayed our course

oh ba da ba da da da da!
Track Name: Dying World
i won't fall apart, no, i won't dig through hearts for gold
like you want me to
i don't tolerate no man or girl whose minds been sold
to a dying world

but i'm moving awfully slow

i don't criticize no one just so long as they don't show
me any kinda hate
they're the only ones who make our minds so they don't grow
like we want them to

but we're moving awfully slow
yeah, we're moving awfully slow
Track Name: Some Still Believe
i don't recall that dusty old page
a book that my mama said filled her with rage
so i burned all my records and sold all my games
a task that would later make me run away

but i don't recall

i am amazed what the world's done to me
i take what i want and leave bums on the street
told a girl in a wheelchair she would fall on her feet
then she stood and made me change the words that i speak

to some still believe

kings and kingdoms will all pass away
worlds below will turn into a blaze
pass the line and surely you will pay
livin' is here but it won't stay

but some still believe
Track Name: Apparently, 911
waited on the wrong side of your door
'cause when you said to stay i listened
'til then the music faded and i left
and you got mad for that apparent reason
you said, "go, go, don't come back. go, go, don't come back
don't come here no more."

i wasn't there
for you've been failing me too
i haven't been there
for you've been failing me too

drinking all the dogfish, wanting more
and we agreed storms would blow over
'til then the sunlight faded and you left
and i got drunk for that apparent reason
i said, "go, go, don't come back. go, go, don't come back.
don't come here no more."

i wasn't there
for you've been failing me too
i haven't been there
for you've been failing me too

traded all the anger that we had
for one last chance at retribution
but then a demon rose up from the dead
and we got loud for that apparent reason

we said:
GO GO DON'T COME BACK
GO GO DON'T COME BACK
DON'T COME HERE NO MORE!
Track Name: Sundowning
you've been fading over time
wrestling to stay in my mind
when i left you i should have said
"i'll forget...

everything from now on 'cause i am dying"
Sundowner's set my brain to fryin'
but tomorrow i'll be fine
under the Texas sun where I've been for all my life

ran away into the night
jumping trains as they went by
when i met you i didn't know
i'd forget...

everything from then on 'cause i'd be dying
Sundowner's set my brain to fryin'
but tomorrow i'll be fine
under the Texas sun where I've been for all my life

well there's just one and i'll make her my wife
she's an ex beauty queen and we met on the fly
i was looking for sunshine
didn't know that she'd make me go blind
when i was eighteen i was full of the sky
that was five years before i got shit in my eye
now i'm waking up thirsty wondering,
"where did my baby go?"
well then on comes road where our voids collide
i was feeling kinda down in a path divide
then she spit on her fingers and said,
"baby, you can have your sight."

and today we feel just fine
under the Texas sun where I'll stay for all my life
Track Name: Calling Quits
well i'm calling quits
i can't take another broken heart
oh it's not something that you would understand

i'm calling bullshit
everything you ever said was a lie
oh and it's not something that i can forgive

don't keep walking
don't keep moving forward
put life aside and on hold
i know i can be a little cruel
but i don't deserve the shit i've been through

well i'm feeling sick
i need you to nurse me back to health
oh 'cause i'm too scared to go to a doctor

i'm feeling pretty tricked
i just wish you would have told me the truth
oh that you could never love me sober

don't keep walking
don't keep moving forward
put life aside and on hold
i know i can be a little cruel
but i don't deserve the shit i've been through
i know i can be a little cruel
but i don't deserve the shit you put me through
Track Name: We Could Hold
i was only being warned this time
if i do you wrong again you'll take flight
over mountains, basins, and the like
i'll just stay home and think about what i've done

"you just be quiet"
speak i wouldn't try it
things- they came undone
we couldn't hold

seems you were my only flaw from the start
dirt i wouldn't rinse away from my heart
even when i'm clean i'm torn apart
press your fingers to my lips we won't talk

we'll just be quiet
speak i wouldn't try it
if things they come together
we could hold
Track Name: Golden Feathers
the ink was spilled, red and black
a dotted line that we could follow
the water stains, a weathered page
the pouring rain, our feet are drowning
and through the fog i let you stray
and we got lost miles away
from lizard ears and make-believe
the life we lived in our dreams

my thought train came apart
my body laid near my heart
we were looking for golden feathers

he folded up his chart
leaving room in his bag for treasure
he knows where to start
and soon he'll be thrilled when he reaches turning points
the ink was spilled, red and black
a dotted line that he could follow
his family prayed, "return safe"
but he got lost when he sailed away

the oak frame came apart
his body laid near his heart
he'd been looking for golden feathers

i wasn't so afraid
then i could feel your hand fall on my neck
and i woke suddenly
to see my woman slowly drift away
i closed my eyes again
said, "if you're going to kill me do it right."
yeah, do it right

your name is written on my tongue
with every word i speak i'm cursed
and with a soft blow to my head
i lose my mind
that's all i had
that's all that i had
Track Name: My Only Season
you said no, you wouldn't stop on your way home
to pick up a bottle of wine
a paper bag holds the alternate answer
you said it's just more your style

that's how i know you're my only season
i'm gonna grow old for that reason

the anger caused by an instant heartache
of learning that your brother's been fleeced
an excerpt from conversation,
strangers can make you laugh till you bleed

that's how i know you're my only season
i'm gonna grow old for that reason
