Track Name: As Tall As Cliffs
I tell tales tall as cliffs
You've got a lisp
Kid, those things are hard to miss

Like my cripple cough
All your weekends lost by the lake
Well you said I needn't be afraid
Of all those devils on the wall
That make a fella small
When he's feelin' brave
They take his wine away
There were posters on the wall
I swear my mother saw
And I've been up all night
Up all night

And you came well equipped
With a gun on your hip
And some poison on your lips
But when we wake up in our make-up
We'll be clean
And we won't have nowhere to be

Oh, but I can't talk to you
The way I've wanted to
I've been tellin' lies
But I'll tell you the truth

No I can't talk to you
The way I've wanted to
I've been tellin' lies
But I'll tell you the truth

Darlin', I'm tired
And I should be leavin', leavin'
You know I'm tired
And I should be leavin'
Leavin' tonight

Darlin', I'm tired
And I should be leavin', leavin'
You know I'm tired
And I should be leavin'

And you'll hang like the rest
We'll leave a noose on
The attorney's desk
Take to the streets
Chant like an army
And doctor up this disease
Track Name: July 25, 2007
I woke up at seven
Rode the bus until eleven
Called ex-lovers, and my brother
Hoping someone was awake
Circled around the campus
In a t-shirt and pajamas
As I stared out the window
And my heart began to break

But it's all good,
'Cause I'm no good
And believe me,
You don't need me.
It's a big world,
And I'm old news to you.

I started healing
Soon as I regained the feeling
In my fingers pressed so hard
Against that steel the night before
I wrote another love song
But my heart, it wouldn't sing along
My head agreed, I didn't need
To try and right the wrongs

But it's all good,
'Cause I'm no good
And believe me,
You don't need me.
It's a big world,
And I'm old news to you.

I woke up at seven
Rode the bust until eleven
Called ex-lovers, and my brother,
Hoping someone was awake
Track Name: Doo Right
I want to hold you
Till the mountains turn into sand.
Oh my god what happened to all those days?
Before we were bruised
Before we were cut loose
To drown in your waves.

I can’t breathe
Underwater like I used to,
Before I met you.

I just can’t remember
January straight through December.
My collective memory are in shambles,
And so are my scruples.
I’m outside your window
Throwing bricks at the moon.

I can’t breathe
Underwater like I used to
Before I met you.
Track Name: Piazza, New York Catcher
Elope with me, Miss Private, and we’ll sail around the world
I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl
How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?
How many nights of limping around on pagan holidays?
Oh, elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze
A trail for the devil to erase

San Francisco’s calling us, the Giants and Mets will play
Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?
We hung about the stadium, we’ve got no place to stay
We hung about the Tenderloin and tenderly you tell
About the saddest book you ever read, it always makes you cry
The statue’s crying too and well he may

I love you, I’ve a drowning grip on your adoring face
I love you, my responsibility has found a place beside you
And strong warnings in the guise of gentle words
Come wave upon me from the wider family net absurd
“You’ll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job”
Maybe, but not what she deserves

Elope with me, Miss Private, and we’ll drink ourselves awake
We’ll taste the coffee houses and award certificates
A privy seal to keep the feel of 1960 style
We’ll comment on the decor and we’ll help the passer by
And at dusk when work is over we’ll continue the debate
In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare

The catcher hits for .318 and catches every day
The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays
He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor
He knows the drink affects his speed, he’s praying for
a doorway
Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench
Life outside the diamond is a wrench

I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend
I know it wouldn’t come to love, my heroine pretend
A lady stepping from the songs we love until this day
You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk Away, Renee”
The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like
a flower
Meet you at the statue in an hour
Meet you at the statue in an hour
Track Name: Big Jet Plane
She said "hello mister, please to meet ya"
I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her
She smelled of daisies, smelled of daisies
She drive me crazy, drive me crazy

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey hey
Hey hey

Be my lover, my lady river
Can I take ya, take ya higher

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey hey
Hey hey

Gonna hold ya, gonna kiss ya in my arms
Gonna take ya away from harm
Gonna hold ya, gonna kiss ya in my arms
Gonna take ya away from harm

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey hey
Hey hey
Track Name: The Boy with the Arab Strap
A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time
The odour of old prison food takes a long time to pass you by

Day upon day of this wandering gets you down
Nobody gives you a chance or a dollar in this old town

Hovering silence from you is a giveaway
Squalor and smoke's not your style
"I don't like this place"
We better go
Then I compare notes with your older sister
I am a lazy gett, she is as pure as the cold driven snow


What did you learn from your time in the solitary
Cell of your mind?
There was noises, distractions from anything good
And the old prison food
Colour my life with the chaos of trouble
Cause anything's better than posh isolation
I missed the bus
You were laid on your back
With the boy with the arab strap
With the boy from the arab strap

It's something to speak of the way you are feeling
To crowds there assembled
Do you ever feel you have gone too far?
Everyone suffers in silence a burden
The man who drives minicabs down in Old Compton
The Asian man
With his love hate affair
With his racist clientele

A central location for you is a must
As you stagger about making free with your lewd and lascivious boasts
We all know you are soft cause we've all seen you dancing
We all know you are hard cause we all saw you drinking from noon
Until noon again
You're the boy with the filthy laugh
You're the boy with the arab strap

Strapped to the table with suits from the shelter shop
Comic celebrity takes a back seat as the cigarette catches
And sets off the smoke alarm
What do you make of the cool set in London?
You're constantly updating your hit parade of your ten biggest wanks
She's a waitress and she's got style
Sunday bathtime could take a while
Track Name: Tree Hugger
The flower said, "I wish I was a tree,"
The tree said, "I wish I could be
A different kind of tree,
The cat wished that it was a bee,
The turtle wished that it could fly
Really high into the sky,
Over rooftops and then dive
Deep into the sea.

And in the sea there is a fish,
A fish that has a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a pink flower on it.
And in the sea there is a fish,
A fish that has a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a pink flower on it.

And the flower
Would be its offering
Of love to the desert.
And the desert,
So dry and lonely,
That the creatures all
Appreciate the effort.

Et le jackalope a dit
"Je voudrais Étre un yÈti
Pour voler dans la nuit
Et m'en aller loin d'ici"
Mais le yÈti a dit
"Je voudrais Étre un monstre marin
Pour pouvoir rentrer dans la mer
De tous les requins."


And the rattlesnake said,
"I wish I had hands so
I could hug you like a man."
And then the cactus said,
"Don't you understand,
My skin is covered with sharp spikes
That'll stab you like a thousand knives.
A hug would be nice,
But hug my flower with your eyes."

The flower said, "I wish I was a tree,"
The tree said, "I wish I could be
A different kind of tree,
The cat wished that it was a bee,
The turtle wished that it could fly
Really high into the sky,
Over rooftops and then dive
Deep into the sea.

And in the sea there is a fish,
A fish that has a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a pink flower on it.
And in the sea there is a fish,
A fish that has a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a pink flower on it.

And the flower
Would be its offering
Of love to the desert.
And the desert,
So dry and lonely,
That the creatures all
Appreciate the effort.
Track Name: I Will
Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime?
If you want me to I will

For if I ever saw you
I didn't catch your name
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
Oh, you know I will, I will
Track Name: Wagon Wheel
Headed down south to the land of the pines
And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
Starin' up the road
Pray to God I see headlights

I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh
I can see my baby tonight

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me

Runnin' from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time stringband
My baby plays the guitar
I pick a banjo now

Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin' me now
Lost my money playin' poker so I had to up and leave
But I ain't a turnin' back
To livin' that old life no more

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me

Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly
Had a nice long toke
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee

And I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby callin' my name
And I know that she's the only one
And if I die in Raleigh
At least I will die free

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me
Track Name: I Will Follow You Into The Dark
Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark
If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
"Son fear is the heart of love"
So I never went back

If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
'cause we'll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms

If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the No's on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Track Name: Watch Me Fall Apart
You said once you were sad
but I don't believe you
you're too simple in the head
for pain to please you
there are days when you feel good
and days when you feel nothing at all

But there is no inbetween
and is that, that kills you
cause you don't know what to do
which page to thumb through
on all of my failures I've leaned
but with God as my witness I fall

Oh one by one they watch me fall apart
oh one by one they watch me fall apart

Forgive me I'm empty
and I want you to need me
your assurance is a game
and I'm always bluffing
like suburban nature
I've separated myself

But I'll kindly grip my teeth
swallow and bury it
unsettled and anxious
and now I'm careless
and I'm swearing in my sleep
cursing as the day, as it goes by

Oh one by one they watch me fall apart
oh one by one they watch me fall apart
Track Name: 5 Years Time
Oh well in 5 years time, we could be walking round a zoo,
With the sun shining down over me and you,
And there'll be love in the bodies of the elephants too,
I'll put my hands over your eyes, but you'll peek through.

And there'll be sun, sun, sun- all over our bodies,
And sun, sun, sun- all down our necks,
And there'll be sun, sun, sun- all over our faces,
And sun, sun, sun- so what the heck.

'Cos I'll be laughing at all your silly little jokes,
And we'll be laughing about how we used to smoke,
All of those stupid little cigarettes and drink stupid wine,
'Cos it's what we needed to have a good time.

But it was fun, fun, fun- when we were drinking,
It was fun, fun, fun- when we were drunk,
And it was fun, fun, fun- when we were laughing,
It was fun, fun, fun- Oh it was fun.

Oh well, I'll look at you and say:
It's the happiest that I've ever been.
And I'll say: I no longer feel I have to be James Dean.
And she'll say: Yeah well, I feel all pretty happy too, and I'm always pretty happy, when I'm just kicking back with you.

And it'll be love, love, love- all through our bodies,
And love, love, love- all through our minds,
And it'll be love, love, love- all over her face,
And love, love, love- all over mine.

And though nearly all these moments are just in my head,
I'll be thinking about them, as I'm lying in bed,
And I know that really it might not even come true,
But in my mind, I'm having a pretty good time with you.

Oh, in 5 years time- I might not know you,
In 5 years time- we might not speak,
In 5 years time- we might not get along,
In 5 years time- you might just prove me wrong.

Oh there'll be love, love, love- wherever you go
Track Name: That's Some Dream
There's a time in our lives
we start again on writing our part
as the story goes on it's the rule that we remember our lines

I know everyone would want me to say
that I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai
I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai

There's a place in my head
it must be called the super motel
I can stay the whole night
and think about the girl in her shell

I know everyone would want me to say
that I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai
I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai

I know everyone would want me to say
that I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai
I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay

That's some dream
