Track Name: Fell on Down
Well the wind it flew in like a raven
as I stood on the edge of the night
And the stars were all hauled from their wagons
with the moon on the edge of their knives
And I fell on down

I found nothing in methods worth taking
all these totems they push me away
I found a secret in the sand that's worth living
may the flesh and the bone fall away
when I fall on down

So I clung like a fool to that darkness
like it's gold or some rain in my hands
And the hammer did fall like the lightning
in it's mortal and raggedy strands
And I fell on down

Now the winter will come with its malice
in a guillotine fog for the fall
So may springtime dismantle these wastelands
And the summer relinquish us all
When we fall on down
Track Name: When I Go
I'll take the lift from a feather in the low Missouri sky
I'll use the love of another like a crutch to get me by
I'll take the summit from the mountains and I'll bring em' down to me
I'll take the lightning and the thunder and I'll hide em' underneath

When I go, on my own
like some high and lonesome song
you'll know I'm the one
when the fall is dead and gone

I'll take the mirror to the meadow and I'll hold these empty lands
I'll take God from the meadow and his tears to everyman
I'll take my solace to the desert and I'll lay my weary head
I'll take my longing to the desert and I'll leave it there for dead

And you'll see me steal away, like the ghosts that went before
to the gardens of the lost, through the seasons on these roads
I'm a shadow of your life, with your dreams upon my back
there is no room left for mine

I'm a lonely little feather in the low Missouri sky
Track Name: Elegy
Across the broken great divide
we went searching side by side
for our brothers in the ash
with immortal thieves of time

On those broken homeless roads
we held our hopes and troubled souls
in our lanterns and our dreams
in open arms so scarred and free

Against an endless meadow dawn
our voices echoed all along
these walls assembled for our Gods
and wild idols for the lost

And while our justice it was blind
to jailed poets spoken crimes
we simply feasted on the flesh
of everyman and orphaned child

Now the locusts lay in wait
for salvations bitter fate
while they strip us to the bone
we'll scream in darkness and ask why

Our lives were never ours to live
we stoked the fire in our cribs
and we shattered every star
and every light before our eyes
Track Name: Banks of Ohio
I was combing the morning for a piece of my heart
while the ruins were burning we drifted apart
like the sun and sky in a kettle of dreams
on the banks of Ohio
all the world was given to me

I alone lit those torches for the corpses of night
for the fuel and the fossil, my pillage and plight
while the sky hid the sun behind stitches and seams
on the banks of Ohio
all the world was given to me

On the banks of Ohio
all the world was given to me

So I chipped and I chiseled those stones for my head
and I sewed on this quiver of thorns for my head.
while the sky held the stars on the hemisphere breeze
on the banks of Ohio
all the world was given to me

On the banks all the world is stepping glass
on the banks, no wall is built to last
on the banks, I cower on hallowed ground
on the banks, I'll ever be found.

Now I'll rise like the silence, like rivers in time
and I'll flood every meadow with my echo and cry
while the sun holds the sun in that hammock of gold
on the banks of Ohio
all the world is given and sold

On the banks of Ohio
all the world is given and sold

On the banks of Ohio
all the world is given to me.
Track Name: World Will Turn
I was never giving to the ocean
I was always taken by the land
under endless skies, in my fish bowl
It's the dawn that falls the hardest when I rise

I long to see my feet wander those prairies
and touch those royal stones given thorny crowns
with empty handed heart I live among you
you who never dream alone to live apart

And the world will turn and I will stay
among these falling paper leaves
and the world will turn without me now
as I sing while leaving you behind somehow
