Track Name: Firing Line
Well don't it seem like everything's ending
don't it seem like nothing's new
in the morning light I see you standing
with your bare feet turning blue
and don't it seem like everyone's watching
they're watching every little thing you do
in the morning light I hear you knocking
trying to break that window through

God don't need your money child
Man don't need your time
They'll take you down to the edge of town
and put you in the firing line
they'll put you in the firing line

Well don't it seem like everything's sinking
and the sun won't show her face
and that water you been drinking
is bitter to the taste
and the women in the alley
and the man with the suitcase
they're taking stands and they're making plans
and they're rotting all over the place

God don't need your money child
Man don't need your time
They'll take you down to the edge of town
and put you in the firing line
they'll put you in the firing line

Well there's wisdom in the garden
and there's truth inside the rain
and there's fire in the building
and the devil's in the flame (x2)

God don't need your money child
Man don't need your time
They'll take you down to the edge of town
and put you in the firing line
they'll put you in the firing line
they'll put you in the firing line
they'll put you in the firing line
Track Name: Without a View
Guided by feeling
I burn my face in the wind
I have tried to see it my way
Wound around this lonely highway
now I'm stuck here in a room without a view
I still believe in you

Shake off all the rust
Watch me turn to dust
I have tried to see it your way
My reflection in the doorway
All I see is red and black and blue
I still believe in you

I'll tell you something tragic
They all believe in magic
They tried to tell me that we're through
I still believe in you

Talking heads spin around
See them breaking new ground
I have tried to see it their way
Up and down a spiral staircase
and I wonder why I'm so confused
I still believe in you
Track Name: The Thread
Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
The pipes are leaking underneath the house
and the clock on the wall forgot about
the hand that's shaking behind my back
and I hear something in the chimney

Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
There's smoke in the kitchen and there's blood on the wall
and it ain't no wonder he forgot us
All the way to the river crushed grass moans
and cries to the tune of a gospel song

Oh Lord oh Lord
the thread the thread
that's weaving in and out my head
all through my skin
and into them
the day is coming like you said

Oh Lord what do I do
My thoughts are dripping like the bar room blues
the cat in the alley got the old dog's bone
never mind she's sleeping in the old dog's home
away from the water with her old last name
and her new age children ain't got no shame

Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
they're step step stepping and it's right on time
and they're picking me up, they throw me in the line
the center of the circle now I can't see
and it's taking all the life and all the breath from me

Oh Lord oh Lord
the thread the thread
that's weaving in and out my head
all through my skin
and into them
the day is coming like you said

Oh Lord what do I do
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
I want to teach 'em all a thing or two
Track Name: Drift Away
Hey, how long must I wait
I see you standing inside the city gate
All wrapped up in song
Right where you belong
I drift away

Hey, did you orchestrate
the line between here and a handful of fate?
The first sign of spring
when you start to sing
I drift away

Hey, a house full of hate
It ain't what I begged for but it shoots me straight
The heart of the sky
The heart wonders why
I drift away

Hey, well I hope I'm not late
What choices did I have? Devote or debate
I need you more
than some sandy shore
I drift away
Track Name: The Season
I can see you sleeping
I can see you deep in a dream
Wandering
I can hear you weeping
I can hear you creep in between
Wandering

Oh the season
You've been under
There's no reason
I should wonder
All your skies feel
Rolling thunder
And the water is washing over the bridge

I can feel you breathing
I can feel you, oh you're leaving me
Wandering
I can't see the light through the shadow you cast
I can't see the light through the dark of your past tragedy
Wandering

Oh the season
You've been under
There's no reason
I should wonder
All your skies feel
Rolling thunder
And the water is washing over the bridge
over the bridge
over the bridge
over the bridge
Track Name: Fools
I have killed a red bird
I have read the red words
I have messed around
Fools trying to take me down

I have been a thief in the night
I have broken out all the light
You'll find me in the lost and found
Fools trying to take me down

My head caught a hint of it
My heart caught the scent of it
My mind put a spin on it
Fools trying to take me down (2x)

Fools trying to take me down
Track Name: What You Gave
I didn't have time to see
what you gave to me
you put it in my right hand and I ran
I didn't have time to figure out
what it was all about
you put it in my right hand and I ran

Now they're hunting me down
Whatever you gave to me
They all want it now
Whatever you gave to me
They're seeking me out
Whatever you gave to me
They all want it now
Whatever you gave to me

Everybody else stone cold
while the secrets all unfold
I want to know what you know but I don't
Wound up in a cave with the king
and a mystery thing
I want to know what you know but I don't

Now they're hunting me down
Whatever you gave to me
They all want it now
Whatever you gave to me
They're seeking me out
Whatever you gave to me
They all want it now
Whatever you gave to me
Track Name: What You Said
Why do I do this to myself
I know there's no one else to blame
I see the roughness of my hand
I feel a broken window pane
When all the cold comes rushing in
Now let me suffer in my shame
Why do I do this to myself
I know there's no one else to blame

Come drink the wine
Come taste the bread
Come hear the noises in my head
To stop believing what you said
I might be better left for dead

And when the dark train whistle blows
I feel it trembling in my knees
The time starts beating underground
Here come the voices on the breeze
What will the day create us now
When all the wind has left the seas
To consecrate us all somehow
A shadow waiting to appease

Come drink the wine
Come taste the bread
Come hear the noises in my head
To stop believing what you said
I might be better left for dead

Come drink the wine
Come taste the bread
Come hear the noises in my head
To stop believing what you said
I might be better left for dead
Track Name: What You Need
Everybody
Hanging around
They dressed us up like paper dolls
Then they put us down
We were only playing
But the records wouldn't spin
So we went down to the corner store
To start again

The words that hung
The words that hung
The words that hung
What you need

Cigarettes on the pavement
But nobody knew a thing
And the moon went dancing to the other side
When the wind would sing
Your hand was brusied
It made you real
To feel that way
Was a losing deal

I'll bite my tongue
I'll bite my tongue
I'll bite my tongue
'Til it bleeds
Track Name: There is a Light
Darkness rides again
I wander without a friend
Slaves, slaves to their sin
I am one
Let my mind distill
Charge me not with my will
Bars, bars on the doorway
in the window sill

Will you beg my pardon?
Will you not indict?
In this desperate garden
There is a light

All the blood in my veins
All the blood that remains
Lines, lines in the dirt now
From dragging these chains

Will you beg my pardon?
Will you not indict?
In this desperate garden
There is a light

Some heart
Some stone
Some bound
To roam
I'm riding the coat tails of daybreak alone
Darkness rides again
