Track Name: Shaking Like A Fist
flies a buzzing in my vision today

must be that rotted lime

bottles spilled, faith unhealed

still in splints n wires


I got a cross to bear, they got a cross to burn

have I passed state lines,

If i make it back, strike a match

then we’ll head in side

floorboard stings, mattress springs, pokin in my side


Oh, I’m just shaken like a fist

If I knew the road, I’d know where to ditch

Please top it off, Miss …. Oh my head, go flip the switch
Track Name: Where's The Moment
Today the heat come bustlin, windows doors and walls

no escape it’s insisting, climbing down the hole

Gotta make a connection, handshake, pen, or call

Gotta feed the notion.

That’s the plot after all



Mess I left, paved over

Pulled the rope, is all

Send the package straight downstream, raging sea n all

To this I speak, pure nonsense

Back’s there to break

Lock no eyes, keep your pace, don’t run

They’ll fish you out anyhow



Where’s the moment?

I ask ya

How do you know


Where’s the moment

I tell ya, man, it was here but now it’s gone…


Highway lines mean nothing,
just blurs in your dreams
Sounds of traffic, white noise for sleep

movie on the ceiling, dated and old

Gotta get out into something

running neither hot or cold

CHORUS

solo


funk on the mirror disappearing
BRIDGE: one less history you’re smearing
clearing, appearing, fighting through the fog …..

CHORUS (instrumental)
Track Name: The Night Isn't Right
with you in heart not my arms
the moonlight loses it’s charm
adrift down the river so long
I’ll let sleep send me on

We stepped up the hillside at dawn
enthralled as the hours wore on
But with you, plain out of sight
oh, the night isn’t right

I witness the length dull and long
Minutes into hours into song
A wish that expands grey and drawn
waking dreams fading off


crippled by a sadness too real
pain equals touch, equals feel
the morning sun, will it reveal,
what the shadows can’t steal

solo

With you in my heart, not my arms
the moonlight loses it’s charm
with you plain out of sight
oh, the night isn’t right.
oh, the night isn’t right
Track Name: Cruel Sister (trad)
There lived a lady by the North Sea shore
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
Two daughters were the babes she bore
Fa la la la la la la la la la

As one grew bright as is the sun
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
So coal black grew the elder one
Fa la la la la la la la la la

A knight came riding to the lady's door
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
He'd traveled far to be their wooer
Fa la la la la la la la la la

He courted one with gloves and rings
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
But he loved the other above all things
Fa la la la la la la la la la

Oh, sister will you go with me
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
To watch the ships sail on the sea?
Fa la la la la la la la la la

She took her sister by the hand
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
And led her down to the North Sea strand
Fa la la la la la la la la la

And as they stood on the windy shore
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
The dark girl threw her sister over
Fa la la la la la la la la la

Sometimes she sank, sometimes she swam
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
Crying, "Sister, reach to me your hand"
Fa la la la la la la la la la

Oh sister, sister, let me live
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
And all that's mine I'll surely give
Fa la la la la la la la la la

Your own true love that I'll have and more
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
But thou shalt never come ashore
Fa la la la la la la la la la

And there she floated like a swan
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
The salt sea bore her body on
Fa la la la la la la la la la

Two minstrels walked along the strand
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
And saw the maiden float to land
Fa la la la la la la la la la

They made a harp of her breastbone
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
Whose sound would melt a heart of stone
Fa la la la la la la la la la

They took three locks of her yellow hair
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
And with them strung the harp so rare
Fa la la la la la la la la la

They went into her father's hall
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
To play the harp before them all
Fa la la la la la la la la la

But when they laid it on a stone
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
The harp began to play alone
Fa la la la la la la la la la

The first string sang a doleful sound
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
The bride her younger sister drowned
Fa la la la la la la la la la

The second string as that they tried
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
In terror sits the black-haired bride
Fa la la la la la la la la la

The third string sang beneath their bow
Lay the bent to the bonnie broom
And surely now her tears will flow
Fa la la la la la la la la la
Track Name: Snow
Thick of the winter, after the dead of the fall

Shadows are moving, in spite of the snow

There’s an engine to wire, under the bridge by the creek

more snow inside, we’re hoping to keep

He says if she moves, he’s gonna cut her to pieces

by the weight of her eyes, you don’t think she believes him


Dead finks don’t talk but, nor do wards when they’re covered in sleep

Hear the faint rapping down the hole, embraces you deep


Fence drags the engine cross past ice, rain and sleet

Boot, it stays locked, kicks along with the beat

If they last through the dawn, it’s a long night’s sleep

Why even bother, it’s all yours to keep

In comes the spring, golden hair, fair to the touch
All those panicked calls, I hope you don’t miss me too much


Thick of the winter, after the dead of the fall

Shadows are moving, in spite of the snow

There’s an engine to wire, under the bridge by the creek

more snow inside, we’re hoping to keep


Dead finks don’t talk but, nor do wards when they’re covered in sleep

Hear the faint rapping down the hole, embraces you deep
Track Name: Cross Of Iron
I held the pages tightly in my lap

Anything yet I hadn’t said, over and over again

Oh that ghost reappears whenever you ignore it’s name

Went up the stairs, buckets boom and mop

No bell but the door’s ajar, swinging in the chill


Sure, I’ll sit on that floor thumb through your grooves

No compression, analog perfection

A hint of bright in broad stokes of blue

Watch those moves

A slight up-hand

Your lips reach the bottle before the fingers can reach it

Another spell, in another shell

Oh, if you’d call my name
I’d dig the bones free, lay another grave ………


solo



Dead roses and a cross of iron
Track Name: Just Get Me Through The Night
Just get me through the night, and I'll brace myself for tomorrow

Not a footstep laid to heavy on that unturned soil

Let it lay, let it play, let it ease you into daylight

Just pass me through this single day, as I shudder under sunlight

Every smile, every frown, every "yes, thank you much" may the concrete rest easy

Under foot, under chain, and in every crossed eyeline

The ones who lift you up, and the ones who hold you down

At the top - adrift or not, you might just need those anchors

Through the ebb and the tide, should fear or anger arise

Yes, it's enough to just get through the night
