Track Name: Possibilities
I've closed my windows and locked my doors
my soul may be broken, but my body endures
maybe it's just a rut
or maybe I'll never live to see you
maybe the answer's hidden in history
maybe I won't get far
or maybe I'll die the first day on my own
all I see are possibilities
possibilities
my gearshift's locked in drive, and both my brakes are broken
the sun will rise in the east, but I'll be gone before you're awoken
you haunt me like a lonely ghost
but soon you'll be just one more ugly scar
I'll run until I fall upon my knees
maybe I won't get far
or maybe I'll die the first day on my own
all I see are possibilities
maybe I won't get far
or maybe I'll die the first day on my own
all I see are possibilities
possibilities
Track Name: The Ending
My God has a plan for me
said the girl with the heartless sleeve
he'll fill my daughter's bellies
and save a little but for me
what I'm not understanding
is why it seems to be so hard
to balance expectations
and keep my self-identity
I know I should be thankful
for the bills I pay each month
and it's the ones that got no shit
yeah, they're the unlucky ones
still, I can't shake this feeling
that I'm doing something wrong
maybe I'll take a vacation, or maybe I'll just move on
I'm moving on
I'm moving on
my mirrors must be broken, and my fever must be lifted
you don't have to be lost to be found
the ending to the story meets the sad reality
the more problems I think I solve
the more I want to run away
Track Name: Socrates
I walked down the road to the mouth of the river
and every leaf that fell grazed the corner of my eye
of my eye
Socrates, oh Socrates, tell me anything that I'll believe
what's up above, or underneath?
if you don't know, then what hope is there for me?
for me
that black moon in the sky
it is dark and on the rise
and I guess it goes to show
that the fingers in the sky
will lift us up
they'll lift us up
Track Name: A City Full of Lights
Just last week I left Tuscan
I hitched a ride on back a big old contractor van
and it's a good thing that I knew the Spanish word for "west"
the next day, I got off at a diner
it was the worst night of sleep
I think I've ever had in my life
but I thanked him
and threw a few ones his way
and the waitress, she was a real dime
she talked about her kids, I talked about the road
and she told me
"hey kid, I'll buy your book someday"
and at that point I knew
the time I had to spend with you was through
I knew what I had to do
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
a few more days and a few more nights
I found myself deep in a city full of lights
and despite them you can disappear pretty easily
at an old brick bar down on west and 23
there's an old friend of mine who I always stop and see
and it's no stretch to say that he's seen better days
he said, "listen to me, I know you don't watch too much T.V., but from all the way out here to Washington D.C., they don't care if you or I get sick"
and at that point I knew
the time I had to spend with you was through
I knew what I had to do
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
I'll see you on the other side of the moon
Track Name: Luna
Luna
luna
luna
luna
I wish I was your type
the band starts marching forward
people swallow the parade
I tried my best to reach you
through that entropic haze
but I could see you in the distance
you'd already taken flight
so I set off into the night time
my footsteps linger in your light
oh, luna
luna
luna
luna
I won't see you tonight
no I won't see you
Track Name: Angels
Around here, words are misleading
they find their way into the corners of our hearts
around here the wolves are so hungry
they lick what is left of their prey, and they clean off their teeth
come take my hand, and we'll jump and abandon
the things that don't make us happy
don't wait a minute, let's do it this instant
I'll meet you down under the falls
meet me down under the falls
around here reporters are thirsty
they worm their way into the center of our lives
this is the city of angels
you won't find anything that deep, so just keep off the streets
come take my hand, and we'll jump and abandon
the things that don't make us happy
don't wait a minute, let's do it this instant
I'll meet you down under the falls
meet me down under the falls
Track Name: To the Grave
I used to think
I could find the answer to the things I'm wondering
if I just write and sing a song to keep me company
but now I know
I was only playing games like a child
your fingers brush upon my guitar calluses
we are hand in hand
here we are
the starving artist dies last night alone
in his sleep
and all that's left are the poems and paintings taken to his grave
to his grave
I watch you sleep
hear the frogs all croaking in the rain
they celebrate
'cause they all have found the secret that they'll take
to their graves
Track Name: Crane Games
Driving home
is like going to jail
and these walls are high
and I've never been a boy for climbing
I'm seeing things
it's like I'm losing my mind
I'm alone all the time
It's like I'm the last stuffed dog in the crane game
reach for me, silver claw of grace
why don't you take me to your place?
we can stay up and play cards or something
please don't let me escape
I don't want to go, I don't want to go, I don't
no, no, no, I don't want to go
oh no, oh no,
no, no, no, no
Yesterday, the city swelled up with life
we were sweating away
you hate when I smoke,
I said, "I hate when you spit"
and you did in my face
people were laughing, hands covering their mouths
please don't let me escape
I don't want to go, I don't want to go, I don't
no, no, no, I don't want to go
oh no, oh no,
no, no, no, no
Track Name: Possibilities (Reprise)
I've closed my windows and locked my doors
my soul may be broken, but my body endures
maybe it's just a rut
or maybe I'll never live to see you
maybe the answer's hidden in history
maybe I won't get far
or maybe I'll die the first day on my own
all I see are possibilities
possibilities
my gearshift's locked in drive, and both my brakes are broken
the sun may rise in the east, but I'll be gone before you're awoke
you haunt me like a lonely ghost
but soon you'll be just one more ugly scar
I'll run until I fall upon my knees
maybe I won't get far
or maybe I'll die the first day on my own
all I see are possibilities
maybe I won't get far
or maybe I'll die the first day on my own
all I see are possibilities
possibilities
