Track Name: Smoke Screens
Lost eyes admire the embodied dream
The winds, they whispered the quiet in my ears
So it goes, so it goes down the drain
Off it rolls, the sweat that I can’t contain
If you could stumble my way
Drop the smoke screen let’s make it you and me
Time moves and slips into the grey
The evening it steals the light from your face
I’m dancing down this old road that’s calling me home
You can swim tonight if you like but you can’t fight the flow
If you could stumble my way
Drop the smoke screen let’s make it you and me
If you could stumble my way
Conquering those steep grades
Tying tongues all the same
Drop the smoke screen let’s make it you and me
Track Name: Pasadena
Meet me on the ground
We’ll fall out again
And just like the frogs that rain down
We’ll cover the earth when we land
When you started livin’
High on the hill
You learned to fake it and make it all work
Now you’re weary from grinning I heard
So lose me in the trees of Pasadena
Oh I’ll haunt the forests till you return
So lose me in the trees I want to see ya
When the oceans rise we’ll dive in headfirst
Calling it even now
But the details we’re leavin' out
A hole full of holes leave the best parts untold
Just the lines but you don’t color in
When you moved your livin’
High up in the mountain
You made a killin’ preaching those words
Looking down on my neck of the woods
So lose me in the trees of Pasadena
Oh I’ll haunt the forests till you return
So lose me in the trees I want to see ya
When the oceans rise we’ll dive in head first
Track Name: Creole Belle
My creole belle I love her well
My darling baby my creole belle
When the stars all shine I’ll call her mine
My darling baby my creole belle
My creole belle I love her well
I love her more than anyone can tell
Since you drifted down to Vacherie
These tears of mine are all I see
You left some love but I used it up
If you come on home I’ll be singin' hallelujah
When she’s on my mind I’m feelin' fine
My darling baby my creole belle
Gonna put down roots like we’re supposed to do
My darling baby my creole belle
Track Name: Darken Your Door
On the day I roamed I was a soggy beast
From the river I tracked mud into your house
You just offered me a meal I didn’t know it
Would be my last
Had some bright ideas in a murky state
Of mind while we just shared another cigarette
Burned a face into our shoulders just to prove a point
What we’ve seen ain’t nobody else gonna see
Where we’ve been ain’t nobody else gonna be
Will I meet a ferocious animal if I darken your door?
Came home to roost like it always does
When you’re out whistling past the graveyard
Oh honey you don’t seem to notice that you’re wakin’ the dead
You can shoot me down, that’s fine by me
But forgiveness ain’t running in the family
Those souls been beating at my brain like cold thunder
Since the day I was born
Track Name: Virtue's Daughter
Virtue’s daughter won’t you help me to keep
my troubles from going nowhere
I’m just another man who’s traveled all the way
here to find some things ain’t never changing
old preachers rambling bout the gold upstairs
ya gotta make a livin’ down here too
but you won’t get too far with a gun in your hand
jesus, mary, and joseph please be patient
everything you called the promised land
was just a bit of dirt that got washed up
this river’s gonna rise and this boat is bound to sink
think I’ll just head back to where I’m from
discord my brother you seldom take a break
you’ve been on the job much too long
a thousand days and just as many nights
it’s a shame you’ve only just begun
wandering across this land a blue eyed babe
a moonlit vision on the move
even with the racket and the howling of the riots
I swear you can hear those footsteps coming
I don’t fear the chills of washing in the lake
The Indian summer warmed it up
But if swimming next to you is still against the law
Think I’ll just head back to where I’m from
Between you and me, the bedpost, and the night
I’m never quite sure what to say
With chaos in the headlines let’s turn it all around
And head right on back the way we came
