Track Name: Long Road
Pools of light in the alley
Light the way back to warmth

A woman laughs, it's the echo
that you need at this moment

You'll remember crazy rain
Spinning circles in dark suburbs

Screaming out the window
"Wake up! Wake up you stupid bastards!"

Take a seat near the exit
Just pray to God know one sees you
Watch the mots trapped like flies
Angels in stained glass windows

You'll remember Father Down
looking right through you
clasping your sweaty palm
and saying, "Don't be a stranger."

When the bells call your name
turn and face the whole family

Say the words
Move in place
Fly away to Bermuda

When the weight of the mortgage
Raking leaves, just be grateful

Bad reports from the school
Yes, of course, I still love you.

Face the judge
Speak your truth
Be absolved in some manner

Drive away to an apartment
TV glow TV dinners

You'll remember
Nothing much
Who's to know
Who's to care

Empty evenings
Restless nights
with a book in the kitchen

You never believed
You have to believe
You never
You never believed
Track Name: Trade
That's what you wanted to say,

...but you know you didn't need to.

I heard he said, "No more."

Excitement rolled through his system.

"You've nothing to be afraid of."

He stared him down,

...and ruined the whole party.
Track Name: The Last Leg (Riding High I)
...And you sat back as an old, old, man,
And you smoked your pipe,
and you crossed your legs,
and you said, "Where is it? Did you decided to be a clown?"
Track Name: Crawl (Riding High III)
cold, colder than death
cold as the curtain of night

cold as the mountaintop
you gaze away

shuddering from pit to pit

you turned from the fire
it singed your hair

smothering blankets
that muffled your voice
before ever you spoke

the cruelest joke

icy hands on your spine

the only peace you can find
hangs in the air like a broken kite

caught in telephone wires

look down, look down
look at this ramshackle town

look at your feet on the ground
sneakers in the snow
and no place to go

stop dreaming of release
or we'll call the police

you can't get away
from the breaking day

think of maps
think of lines
think of things you left behind

innocent, innocent
except for the murder of hope
but can you kill what you can't see?

god knows you can't hear me
or anyone, anyone

when they find you
will you stare at the sky
like a wall?

will you scream?

will you cry?

will you crawl?
will you crawl?
will you crawl?

back to it all

when they find you
will you stare
at the sky
like a wall?

will you scream?
will you cry?

will you crawl
back to it all?

will you crawl
back to it all?

you can crawl

come on and crawl

let's see you crawl

you can crawl

you can crawl
back to it all
