Track Name: This Is It
Last year I lost half my friends due to the split
So I bought a van and packed up most my shit
And left the town where I was born but had grown sick
This is it, this is it, man I hope that this is it
This is it, this is it, man I hope that this is it

The angels of the South are where dreams go to die
A month’s enough to know which way I want to drive
I miss the trees and want to see the Northern Lights
This is it, this is it, man I hope that this is it
This is it, this is it, man I hope that this is it

I traced a line North where the sand cradles the sea
And got as far as I could from the GNP
I want your love but only if your heart is free
This is it, this is it, man I hope that this is it
This is it, this is it, man I hope that this is it
Track Name: If The Tide Swings
Some things in life just ain’t worth a damn
But we chase them down anyway
I wish I never had that one night stand and
Threw our good love away
Yeah I threw our good love away
And I still regret it today

If the tide swings and my ship separates from the sand
My hearts unwinding and I don’t want to go drifting again

And I don’t comprehend how people think
This is the pinnacle of belief
One day soon the world will look back and say
It’s crazy how life used to be
Man it’s crazy how life used to be
And it still seems crazy to me

If the tide swings and my ship separates from the sand
My hearts unwinding and I don’t want to go drifting again
Track Name: Winding Roads
Winding roads
I’ve been sleeping in my cloths
Trying to find a place to park along the sea
Read a book with a bottle of wine
Stowed away from the life I left behind

Sirens plea
Silhouettes gently pulling at my sleeve
But I don’t let much these days hold onto me

Sailed across
Plains so big my heart was lost
Chasing dreams of currents clawing at the shore
Without doubt I’ll be swept from my feet
Once the tide of the storm catches me

Sirens plea
Silhouettes gently pulling at my sleeve
But I don’t let much these days hold onto me
Track Name: Lake Missouri
(Well) I watched my neighbor’s daughter
Run her bare feet through the water
Though at the time we were no more than friends
I pressed my soft lips on hers
And joked that we’re all goners
And held here close in case the comet comes


And the moon’s reflection shivered
From the bite the cold delivered
But it would take more to chase us indoors
That shooting star’s a whisper
Like fish in that big river
She held me close in hopes I’d keep her warm
Track Name: In the Grass
I’m down
Rolling around in the grass
Watching time pass
You’ve been alone
But I’m coming home again

Well you slipped into your excuse
Because it is your favorite suit
And you wore it well
As you tied yourself
To the rails that carry the train

I’m down
Rolling around in the grass
Watching time pass
You’ve been alone
But I’m coming home again

When that whistle blew
You were consumed
By the mistakes you had made
But it was too late
These ropes won’t break
‘Till the rails and the steel run them through

I’m down
Rolling around in the grass
Watching time pass
You’ve been alone
But I’m coming home again
Track Name: Hippie Chicks
I like hippie chicks with flowers in their hair
I like hippie chicks with flowers in their hair
I like spinning ‘till my legs give out
I like thinking what life is about

I like karaoke in my underwear
I like karaoke in my underwear
I like hardwood floors with clean tube socks
I like dancing to Herbie Hancock
Track Name: Cactus Garden
There’s thistles blowin’ in the wind
The cactus garden’s catchin’ them
And I don’t know what I’m gonna do
‘Cause every time I pull a weed
A big ol’ thorn is poking me
And we’ll be dead before the work is through

Why did I plant a cactus garden?
Of all the foolish things I do
Why did I plant a cactus garden?
I guess I love to watch it bloom

Once that cactus garden’s clean
The boss we’ve got plenty things
I can do to occupy my time
First let’s move that pile of rocks
Then build some stairs up to the top
I swear some times I’ve lost my weary mind

Why did I plant a cactus garden?
Of all the foolish things I do
Why did I plant a cactus garden?
I guess I love to watch it bloom

Why did I plant a cactus garden?
Of all the foolish things I do
Why did I plant a cactus garden?
I guess I love to watch it bloom
Track Name: Keep My Bags Packed
I prefer to keep my bags packed
Long before the whistle blows
I’m always jumping on the train
Without regard to where it goes
And I’m sure life is for learning and
Not much else is true
I hope one day I find something
I can come home to

I can come home to
I can come home to
I can come home to


And if the past becomes the eyepiece
We end up looking through
I close my eyes on those long rides
And sleep away those traveling blues
Cause I’m sure life is for loving and
Not much else is true
I hope one day I find someone
I can come home to

I can come home to
I can come home to
I can come home to
Track Name: Space Vacuums
The vacuums are humming
My heartbeat is drumming from fright
I’ll sleep behind curtains
‘Cause nothing is certain tonight

I hope they
Don’t find me
With my dreams intact
They’ll take them
Erase them
I can’t go back
To living like that

The carpets need mowing
But my face likes the growing caress
My eyelids are heavy
But my mind isn’t ready to rest

I hope they
Don’t find me
With my dreams intact
They’ll take them
Erase them
I can’t go back
To living like that
Track Name: Sleepless Nights In Bed
I was torn by the stem from the weeds
The soft skin of her hand caressed me
Like a bloom filled with plans
I’d be buried again
And nothing else was set in certainty

And if I’m pulling at the threads
‘Till I’m tangled up again
We’ve all spent
Sleepless nights in bed
Filling up our heads
With how we’ll end up dead
In the end

With a wish and a gust I broke free
Set adrift on the boundless blue sea
Unlike the boats caught in port
Dreaming of fading shores
I’d prefer the ocean swallows me

And if I’m pulling at the threads
‘Till I’m tangled up again
We’ve all spent
Sleepless nights in bed
Filling up our heads
With how we’ll end up dead
Track Name: Splinters in the Evening
Where’d you spend the winter love?
We could hide out in a cabin
Make a fire with chopped wood and
Nurse our splinters in the evening

There’s a chance they’ll close the roads
If the snow continues falling
We can call it off for good or
Take our chances in the morning
