"The Rooster Moans"

"The Rooster Moans"


Crack of dawn the rooster moans
Wake up boy you're far from home
Serpentine the tracks in flames
Longest path the devil laid
Led you straight aboard this rusty train
Lift your head cuz you can't sleep
Bite your lip cuz you can't eat
Darkest den the devil made
Jesus weeps but he's been paid
Not to ride inside this rusty train
Buzzard's breath the rooster moans
Stow it boy you're far from home
Stow your sorrows stow your fear
What'd you do to end up here
End up on the devil's rusty train

"The Sea And The Rhythm"

"The Sea And The Rhythm"


Tonight we're the sea and the salty breeze
The milk from your breast is on my lips
And lovelier words from your mouth to me
When salty my sweat and fingertips
Our hands they seek the end of afternoons
My hands believe and move over you
Tonight, we're the sea and the rhythm there
The waves and the wind and night is black
Tonight we're the scent of your long black hair
Spread out like your breath across my back
Your hands they move like waves over me
Beneath the moon, tonight, we're the sea

"The Straight And Narrow"
(originally by Spiritualized)

"The Straight And Narrow"
(originally by Spiritualized)



The trouble with the straight and the narrow
Is its so thin, I keep sliding off to the side
And the devil makes good use of these hands of mine
And if Jesus is the straight path that saves
Then I'm condemned to live my whole life on the curb
On the crossroad with the devil, I'll dwell and I'll count my years
You know that I got a little something I should say
I guess that I'm just so easily led astray
It's alright because I know my own way back home from here
And I don't fall of the wagon you know
I take a dive and go as deep as I can go
Don't hold your breath cause I'm coming up slow, this time.
And the trouble with the straight and the narrow
Is its so thin, I keep sliding off to the side
And the devil makes good use of these hands of mine
You know a little problem or two
I guess that I keep on taking a few
I've been told its not the best thing that I can do, right now
And I don't go looking for my sins you know
They come out waiting, and I just get on and go
Don't hold your breath cause I'm coming up slow this time
And the trouble with the straight and the narrow
Is its so thin, I keep sliding off to the side
And the devil makes good use of these hands of mine
And if Jesus is the straight path that saves
Then I'm condemned to live my whole life on the curb
On the crossroad with the devil, I'll dwell and I'll count my years
And the devil makes, the devil makes, the devil makes, good use of these hands of mine
And the devil makes, the devil makes, the devil makes, good use of these hands of mine

"The Trapeze Swinger"

"The Trapeze Swinger"


Please remember me, happily
By the rosebush laughing
With bruises on my chin, the time when
We counted every black car passing

Your house beneath the hill and up until
Someone caught us in the kitchen
With maps, a mountain range, a piggy bank
A vision too removed to mention

But please remember me, fondly
I heard from someone you're still pretty
And then they went on to say that the Pearly Gates
Had some eloquent graffiti

Like 'We'll meet again' and 'Fuck the man'
And 'Tell my mother not to worry'
And angels with their great handshakes
But always done in such a hurry

And please remember me, at Halloween
Making fools of all the neighbors
Our faces painted white, by midnight
We'd forgotten one another

And when the morning came I was ashamed
Only now it seems so silly
That season left the world and then returned
And now you're lit up by the city

So please remember me, mistakenly
In the window of the tallest tower
Call, then pass us by but much too high
To see the empty road at happy hour

Gleam and resonate just like the gates
Around the Holy Kingdom
With words like, 'Lost and found' and 'Don't look down'
And 'Someone save temptation'

And please remember me as in the dream
We had as rug burned babies
Among the fallen trees and fast asleep
Beside the lions and the ladies

That called you what you like and even might
Give a gift for your behavior
A fleeting chance to see a trapeze
Swinger high as any savior

But please remember me, my misery
And how it lost me all I wanted
Those dogs that love the rain and chasing trains
The colored birds above there running

In circles round the well and where it spells
On the wall behind St. Peter
So bright on cinder gray in spray paint
'Who the hell can see forever?'

And please remember me, seldomly
In the car behind the carnival
My hand between your knees, you turn from me
And said the trapeze act was wonderful

But never meant to last, the clowns that passed
Saw me just come up with anger
When it filled with circus dogs, the parking lot
Had an element of danger

So please remember me, finally
And all my uphill clawing
My dear, but if I make the Pearly Gates
I'll do my best to make a drawing

Of God and Lucifer, a boy and girl
An angel kissin' on a sinner
A monkey and a man, a marching band
All around the frightened trapeze swinger

Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah

"The Truest Stars We Know"

"The Truest Stars We Know"


Someone gets to be the river, someone is the sea
Someone gets to be the fire, someone is the leaves
And someone's walking in the morning light and calling to it cold
Everybody moves beneath the truest stars they know
Jesus and his trophy wives are praying for the suicides and the orphans
Save us all from what we want, beautiful and beaten back to life
Someone has the door to heaven, someone has the lock
Someone has to be the dog when someone has to walk
And someone's talking to the miles around and hearing them for good
Everybody's branch is falling harder than they should
And I know Jesus and his trophy wives are praying for the broken to be noticed
Save us all from what we want, beautiful and beaten back to life
Back to life
Back to life

"The Waves Of Galveston"

"The Waves Of Galveston"


Leave the waves of Galveston but only if you can
Cause you’ve been hit behind the seawall, gently folded in the sand
Papa left you for Heaven after your Mama lost her song
And though your baby left you for Houston, no one stays there very long

There’s a graveyard by the pizza parlor, a gate that only closes
Snowbirds fly away like secrets sn one really wants to know
The climbing moon’s always shining on the kind of shells you keep
The broken horse tied to the water tower’s running in his sleep

It’s too bad that you ain’t got a soft place to fall
It’s too bad Texas leans to the least of us all
And says, “If you can make the music then you can have the dance
If you can shoot the pistol then you can wear the pants”

So leave the waves of Galveston but only if you can
Cause it’s the only place the Lone Star kind have offered you a hand
Your baby left you nothing and a dog was left for dead
You never knew you were a burden til it hit you on the head

It’s too bad that you ain’t got a soft place to fall
It’s too bad Texas leans on the least in us all
And says, “If you can make the music then you can have the dance
If you can shoot the pistol then you can wear the pants”

"The Wind Is Low"

"The Wind Is Low"


You, strong as a virgin birth
Me, keepin' your every word
Two dots where a single was
Three countin' the little one

We sail in the smallest boat
Sleep just when the wind is low

You see from the sparrow's height
Me, seeking you every night
Two sailin' towards the sun
Three countin' the little one

We sail in the smallest boat
Sleep just when the wind is low

We sail in the smallest boat
Sleep just when the wind is low

"This Must Be The Place"
(originally by Talking Heads)

"This Must Be The Place"
(originally by Talking Heads)



Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and then turn me round
I feel numb, born with a weak heart
I guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's ok I know nothing's wrong, nothing

Hi, I got plenty of time
Hi, you got light in your eyes
And you're standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money, always for love
Cover up and say goodnight, say goodnight

Home, is where I want to be
But I guess I'm already there
I come home she lifted up her wings
Guess that this must be the place
I can't tell one from the other
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time, before we were born
If someone asks, this where I'll be, where I'll be

Hi, we drift in and out
Hi, sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head
Ah ooh

"Thomas County Law"

"Thomas County Law"


Thomas County Law's got a crooked tooth
Every traffic light is red when it tells the truth
The church bell isn't kidding when it cries for you
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
Thomas County Road takes you where it will
Someone's singing on the far side of other hills
There's nowhere safe to bury all the time I've killed
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
There's a couple ways to cross Thomas County Line
You can't see beyond the trees, they're too tall and wide
And I never seem to see around my brother's wife
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down

There are castles for kings, there are birds without wings
I could whine 'bout it all, but I won't

Thomas County Law's got a crooked tooth
There ain't a mother with a heart less than black and blue
When they hold 'em to the light, you can see right through
Every dreamer falls asleep in their dancing shoes
I may say I don't belong here, but I know I do

Nobody looks away when the sun goes down
Nobody looks away when the sun goes down

"Tree By The River"

"Tree By The River"


Mary Anne, do you remember
the tree by the river
when we were seventeen?
Dark canyon wall, the call and the answer
and the mare in the pasture
pitch black and baring its teeth.
I recall the sun in our faces,
stuck and leaning on braces,
and being strangers to change.
Radio and the bones we found frozen,
and all the thorns and the roses
beneath your window pane.
Now I'm asleep in a car, I mean the world
to a potty-mouth girl,
a pretty pair of blue-eyed birds.
Time isn't kind or unkind, you liked to say.
But I wonder to who
what it is you're saying today.
Now I'm asleep in a car, I mean the world

But I wonder to who

Mary Anne, do you remember
the tree by the river
when we were seventeen?
Dark canyon road, I was coy in the half-moon;
happy just to be with you,
and you were happy for me.
