Ripcord 02:45
Ripcord the chute blossomed well, he missed the mark 'cause you know the wind caught him light the fuse launch the rocket when the park closed we were hiding by the docks and when the night comes (you were) wearing sandals (I was) running barefoot (you were) lighting candles hold the punk launch the rocket 'cause you know next year we'll be tryin' to top it I was calling it back was calling you I was hoping here to remind you I was calling it back was calling you I was hoping I could still find you Hold tight you're the lookout when we saw his face he was casting dirty looks out quick trip to the storefront tie the loose ends you were eyeing for the hookup at the riverside checkin' my bluff when you jumped the cliff I said one life is never enough Ripcord I'm the fuse when we got together we had nothing left to lose

Out on Lone Elm road, at the end of my rope, when the trigger man was coming on through. He said, "I'll give you a hand if you think you can stand to pay me when the course is through. If you're the type who believes in much more than he sees, well then, fella, I'm the man for you. But at the end of the line I will get what is mine, yeah, 'cause Papa don't suffer no fools." You know what they say, every dog has his day, I believed mine might be coming too Though one look in his eyes and I knew well that I might be damned if I don't or I do They say that in life every man has his price and the devil must get his due He said, "You look like a gambler, so don't play it dumb, man, 'cause Papa don't suffer no fools." A falcon screams on Lone Elm Road, tears placid thoughts from mind. Spreading wings so taughtly straight, he dove - a sweeping cry. A grackle in the dead of night, a raven in the moon. Their words are spoken in the dark; they tell me death comes soon. He gave me a light and tho try as I might, I didn't once see the whites of his eyes. He said, "Men give and men take, but I play games with fate, boy, you think you might give it a try?" He promised me riches, no more diggin' ditches by the side of that Lone Elm Road. And all that he asked was when my life was past that I pay him much more than I owed. Well, the summers came fine, he hadn't once crossed my mind since that night so many years before 'til there came a concussion of anger come rushin' to beat down against the front door. The trigger man said, with his gun to my head, "Boy, your time's come and I'm come for you." So out back I was digging my grave, he was singing 'bout how Papa don't suffer no fools. A falcon screams on Lone Elm Road for your end and for mine. We’re naught but prey within the grass his claws will shear in time. A grackle in the dead of night, a raven in the moon. The trigger man carved up a stone just for me, said, "The Devil must get his due." The devil must get his due. The devil must get his due. And Papa don't suffer no fools.

Winter Child 04:00
My Heart, is there left to save A product of our changing ways The dreamsong that you gave to me Was only new love's memory The tide, it comes, to shape me down to sand And time, she comes, to cup me in her hands And wrap me as a winter child beneath the blankets of the land My deeds and prayers across the earth in brightly colored strands To the home of one who taught me what it meant to be a man When I was on your mind The heirloom that you left behind A product of our changing mind Your smile on another's face Your heartbeat in my lover's place The tide, it comes, to shape me down to sand And time, she comes, to cup me in her hands And wrap me as a winter child beneath the blankets of the land My wants and needs across the earth in tattered, shredded strands To the home of one who taught me what it meant to be a man When I was on your mind The photograph you tried to take The only thing that was at stake A product of our shifting tone A bed can't save our broken home The tide, it comes, to shape me down to sand And time, she comes, to cup me in her hands And wrap me as a winter child beneath the blankets of the land My love a song I sang to try to help you understand To the home of one who taught me what it meant to be a man When I was on your mind

I said, Sophie it's not that easy living out on the coast when most of the people here are so insulated and they walk with their hands in their pockets like talking to someone new would just be too much for them I said, Sophie it's not been easy since you haven't been around I've been writing you some days I'm still fighting you tempus fuget in the Puget Sound And I wouldn't say I'll always feel this way it takes time to forge a new home and I knew too well that you never would stay some lives must live on on their own I said Sophie you kept me busy when autumn came crashing down when the lights on the signs of the buildings outside called to the crowd: come one, come all, come inside, come and bare your soul where they sat with rapt faces, or eyes to the floor when I was done they said "Son, we've not heard that before" it was you in the rain, it was me in the spring there's half truth and half lie in the songs that I sing And I wouldn't say I'll always feel this way it takes time to forge a new home and I knew too well that you never would stay some lives must live on on their own I said Sophie it's not that easy livin' out on the coast

Rain Song 03:27
As the rain came down one English morning Sarah waited for the train wondering where she was last night wondering why she never came home As the rain came down one English morning sitting by the oceanside wondering why she was doing wrong Kate would watch the ins and outs of the tide As the rain came down one English morning Joel, you know, was sleeping in as his kids were running through the flat he said, "My God, I'm blessed to live like this." As the rain came down one English morning smoking by the side of the road Jon was thinking about his dad as he was buttoning his overcoat As the rain came down on you and me it was washing out the blue from my eyes some days I wish we could both live here some days I think I'll give it a try As the rain came down on me and you your saltwater face shone in the light some days I wish we could both stay here some days I think that we still might

Wanderers 03:17
All the reasons I've been clinging to I'm throwing out All the stories that I heard Living one life isn't all that you're entitled to All the lessons I had learned When I'd ask what am I doing I'd prevaricate I didn't know that it was true But now I see with eyes wide open and a fuller heart Every day we live anew Oh we aren't landlocked, we're the wanderers There's a fire burning in our mind we can't ignore We're the ones who cross with confidence and longer strides Into the long forgotten shores I was afraid to dream 'cause dreamers often wake to find The harsh reality that pulls no punches passing time But leaving passion lying parched beside a river wild Oh, I just couldn't live with that All the reasons I've been clinging to I'm throwing out All the stories that I heard Living one life isn't all that you're entitled to All the lessons I had learned Oh we aren't landlocked, we're the wanderers There's a fire burning in our mind we can't ignore Oh we're the ones who cross with confidence and longer strides Into the long forgotten shores Oh we're the ones who cross with confidence and longer strides Into the long forgotten shores

Beside a hole in your down coat pocket Is the note where you straightened your thoughts On the paint cracking dry that had once matched your eyes Lies the weight of my rusted post box Keep your head on your heart Keep your heart from the cold When the last of the tears have fallen We will unfold The ice on the grass is sounding Each footstep into the wood In the light of the whippoorwill winter I understood Keep your head on your heart Keep your heart from the cold When the last of the years have fallen We will unfold Oh, sweet summer sun You were my only one At dawn and dusk 'Til kingdom come The seasons change What's done is done Keep your head on your heart Keep your heart from the cold In the light of the whippoorwill winter We will unfold

The Wolves 03:09
There's a calm in the air and a storm in my head there's a one act of you playing over my bed There's a path in the woods freshly laden in snow when the wolves came to call I could feel my blood flow You can't see them, but you hear them, they're cunning You can't see them, but you hear them, they're running There's a ghost by the lighthouse unburdened by clothes who watches in silence for someone she knows While the wolves, they come sniffing their dark eyes aglow to pace at the doorstep and claw the windows You can't see them, but you hear them, they're cunning You can't see them, but you hear them, they're running Come Come Comala, Comala Come Come There are Wolves in the Calla, That we can't outrun In the light of the fire I wait for the sun to give birth to a morning that may never come While the wolves form a circle that trails back in time I see into their hearts as they stare into mine You can't see them, but you hear them, they're cunning You can't see them, but you hear them, they're running

Out Of Love 03:58
Your mind was changing faster than my mouth could move and I could not find the words it took to get through to you to stay, and you walked away It's one thing to have to tell you the word goodbye and a whole 'nother game to get on with my life without you Why's it easy for you? And I don't know if I can see you again They say friends can turn into lovers but not back to friends woah oh oh, woah oh oh, woah oh oh I never meant to keep adding fuel to the fire Oh how quickly the flames grew too high to tame Guess I'm to blame And who would have thought it'd be the both of us taking the burn Ain't it just like the both of us to live and not learn woah oh oh, woah oh oh, woah oh oh I'd still be holding you if only I had my way Maybe I'll be the one, oh that you want someday We'll see At least I can breathe Tell me what did you use to get me out of your head? And where the hell can I get some of it? Cause I've been screaming and no one asks what for Guess I'm out of love and nothing more woah oh oh, woah oh oh, woah oh oh

Home 06:35
Calm blue sky on the edge of the horizon Calm blue waves at the edge of the sea They're no match for the storm that is rising There's a hurt in my core that is gnawing at me Carolina is oh such a light year away And the phone is no way to tell them I care You were out in Salina living for today With the sun at your back and the wind in your hair I left for the work More I left for the pay But the coast gets so cold at night And often wish I had stayed For nights on the prairie Were swimming in stars And the tall grass beneath me Grew into my heart Walk away from a life that is chosen for you We each take our own breath, we find our own peace Left a part of my soul in each town that I pass through Gave the most to my family but kept some for me You were growing on me, we were growing apart Gathering our rosebuds, but from different fields Why's it always appear that our words are so sharp When the cuts come most easy, take the long road to heal? I left for the work More I left for the pay But the coast gets so cold at night And often wish I had stayed For nights on the prairie Were swimming in stars And the tall grass beneath me Grew into my heart I'm coming home There's a light in the darkness that's burning for you I'm coming home Where the sun dries the wheat shocks and the warm air blows through
