Track Name: Inner Circle
BlackElk came to the stream
Devour river flower
White jeweled snake of the weeds

When you got to be free
Live off the land
BlackElk came in my sleep

BlackElk came to the stream
Devour river flower
When you got to be free
Track Name: Horology
I don't care much for beginning
but somehow my heart turns to pickup
Just to survive means the last one to die

I was in my bed I was singing when you came in
Let the light within come and shine through open door
Now Olan, outside is mistaken for whitetail deer in the fire of the dawn

Why would you believe?
You began your decent and I ceased to rise for thee
Then the shadow came to be
Before man marked time by heavenly body

Where do you fit in the hollow of my heart?
Do you fill most men like a carriage or a car?
Outside the ruins are forsaken
No one sold me the floating bowl of the Brahms

Why would you believe?
You began your decent and I cased to rise for thee
Then the shadow came to be
Before man marked time by heavenly body
Track Name: W.C. Fields
I prefer the misery of W.C. Fields
Open up my suitcase, honey I'm real
Never have I found love so grateful and true
I woke up no thinking like a star

So, far away, don't lead me to her
Rows and Rows of maze, don't lead me to her
There are no chains
but what will happen when we all go strange?

Dreadnought on the bounty, spotlight of the bay
Stay with me or I'm leaving like a star

So, far away, don't lead me to her
The ground was black with blood, don't lead me to her
There are no chains
No levee I can't break

Something outside, not worth keeping
someone I love to leave me the fuck alone
Every new day, every hour
never go astray or fall apart

So, far away, don't lead me to her
Track Name: Midnight River
Tonight I wade down blonde bear river
Don't know it yet but I want me a new start
The rowan seed is a saintly green on MIdnight River

Now I'm leaving got no one to consider
My old my man says the plymouth wont start
The rowan seed is a saintly green on Midnight River
and I said I'm a lucky one, amen

Remember when it ran like a dream?
When it first came out and the engine was fast a clean?
Now it just sits in the weeds

Never have I gone and closed the door
Never have I seen there sunny faces

Iron maiden but soft in the middle
My old my ma says we wont go far
The rownan seed is a saintly green on Midnight river
and I said I'm a lucky one, amen
Track Name: Bushman's Bridge
Follow her down to the water
On wet stone we'd walk in the evening's last hour
Stay with my love baby got that power
I believe in this journey through the past

Angel of the river bottom bend my heart
back before it began
And grace us with the bull's mark to mend
like a star

Wash my feet in the dirty water
If theres time for god then there's time for a shower
Stay with the ghost he got the dead man's power
On wet stone we'd walk through the past

Angel of the river bottom bend my heart
back before it began
And grace us with the bull's mark to mend
like a star

Brothers again

Hey son, are you bound for glory?
I believe in the wicked games of Christ before me

Angel of the river bottom bend my heart
back before it began
And grace us with the bull's mark to mend
like a star

Brothers again
Track Name: Hardbody
Someday down the road
she takes me in my robe
spinning tires like barbed wires
in my clothes

Jesus, she don't know
the difference in my love
or how I stood just to look
out of her window

First, it was dark then you came in
A darkness like nothing I could be
To get up now and leave me

Hardbody, it don't grow
on vitamins or healthy homes
fertility of a new breed
baby just let it go

First, it was dark then you came in
A darkness like nothing I could be
To get up now and leave me

I think i was born
born with the power
to recognize your face
and in the silence
in the early napping hour
I climbed upon a new stage

First, it was dark then you came in
A darkness like nothing I could be
To get up now and leave me
Track Name: Ditchlore
Don't let anyone fool you,
when you die theres no one to cling to
The whole world will rise with an answer,
one black brood mare and one steel harrow

First came the kids, then the empire was split
and theres no way Im gonna chain
all I have to say

The fire we built was hard work
but it came up lame
I just want to be a part of the flame

Now I rise with the sunset,
what will we be? What's come upon us?
Haunted by Marianella,
one glass of wine will surely show us

First came the kids, then the empire was split
and there's no way I'm gonna chain
all I have to say

The fire we built was hard work
but it came up lame
I just want to be a part of the flame
Track Name: Lord of Haiti
Gold is just a stone I suppose
I feel it in my belly in my bones
and care about all the nights we have to spend alone
Gold is just a stone I suppose

And being Lord of Haiti is just the same
as waking up in Dallas voodoo rain
and not to even have a dollar to your name
being Lord of Haiti is just the same

What else can I do?
I'm lost and tired of you
left shattered blue, empty handed for you

It's where my home could be
where one can drive without his shirt on
but unlucky for me the generals been drinking

The sculptress makes her way
she's tall and dark and got nothing to say
and everyone was there to touch her long black hair

So I wait for it and I take from it what I will
And the name of it as I lay above it
I can't tell
Is there a map for me there?
A promise for every need?
Going down the wire I'm burning
Track Name: The Coopersmiths
Tangled knots of branch left floating downstream
General I want my mornings back
I must admit this is all suddenly new to me
Using the ferry to try and get back

Battle scars are seen in western Tennessee
no easy place to call home
On all the rocks they painted don't tread on me
but I've got nowhere else to go

Who decides the order
of marching men across the frozen lake?
I burn burn burn but that body wont return to me

Wilderness of grace and swampy twilight
I'm taking survey in the dark
I went out looking for my love in the night
but the rivers cross like snakes in the tar

Who decides the order
of marching men across the frozen lake
because I burn burn burn but that body wont return to me

There's something about the past I've yet to see
Like a hundred barrels taken from one tree
Behind the sunrise the shadows often flee
With your hands on me
The belt of time wrapped loosely around your shoulders
Blowing free
