Track Name: Mess Of Blue
Bow down you wretched sailor if salvation's what you want
It will cost you what you think you know and everything you got
It seems you've cried a thousand times and ain't got much to lose
Just dry your eyes for me tonight and make a mess of blue

Now all around the valley where the ragged people dwell
I strangle from the balcony as they cursed me down to hell
I stand before my maker hoping for to start a new
Just looking for some answers in this crazy mess of blue

Moondog in the cool night free flight in the snow
Separation clings to untied shadows lined with gold
Mangled from the morning in majestic masks of doom
Steel eyed and pining in this empty mess of blue

The futile phantom follows me into the raging storm
I turn myself beside his face where sin itself was born
I crossed the endless gallery and met the bitter muse
I offered her my honesty she made a mess of blue

Secure the sails forward march into the sinking sun
Take what you are given and be mindful as you run
The streets are filling up with heat and you alone must choose
To keep the ground beneath your feet or make a mess of blue

King of disillusion president of peace
Swing in great confusion from their dark deserted dreams
The last breath is the deepest and rightfully misused
They ride into the distance on a wild mess of blue

There's comfort in the darkness and there's fantasy in fact
A thousand tears now fall before the teenage diplomat
Abstract in the kingdom and by candle light pursued
Just hold onto your freedom and go shake this mess of blue

Hard up in the alley twisted in the dirt
Pulled down by insanity and this time it's gonna hurt
Constellations scattered down the youthful avenues
Where nothing really matters except a simple mess of blue

Words of wasted wonder desolation hymns
Knee deep in the thunder and decaying with the wind
A fool I am to ponder but how could I refuse
A wild touch of fire set me in a mess of blue

Now she is my religion yes she's only everything
She walks the crooked edge and makes that silver silence sing
You know I've cried a million times for love I never knew
I'll shine a light for her so bright from my lovely mess of blue
Track Name: Searchin'
They fight to the death and they'll die all alone
With their money all spent on their handguns and bones
And they'll drive me to tears like they did with the rest
So I buried my eyes in a medicine chest
They say the world is on fire and that death is a dream
And when you see that white light you'll know just what they mean
And I've come to the end of my searchin'

Now when I was a child I would reach for the stars
And take to the streets like a light in the dark
But after 21 years I don't know what to say
I'll just pack up my bags and I'll be on my way
For the city's in ruins and I'm under attack
And I swear unto god that I ain't going back
For I've come to the end of my searchin'

Now those spirits will fly as the poets all fall
And Jesus and Mary are drunk in the hall
And the holiest woman I ever did see
Was in a photograph taken in 1903
But I knew nothing of her and I know nothing still
But when I look in her eyes it just brings me a chill
And I've come to the end of my searchin'

So I'll drink to my death and I'll die all alone
And I'm halfways content to be all on my own
I'll sing to the earth maybe then I'll be saved
As I lay down to rest in my dark lonesome grave
And I've come to the end of my searchin'
Yes I've come to the end of my searchin'
Track Name: He Won't Be Back
Now we float on the ceiling as we mock the face of time
And it's a rose we'll be throwing in the gutter
Now a cold empty feeling just a stranger in your mind
I am falling forever down

From the eyes that you dream in to the roar of the train
This whole world ain't got nothing for me babe
And old Satan was howling but it's all in the game
You are falling forever down

Let's begin baby
Come on give in
He won't be back till the morning

Now the buildings were burning and our thoughts turned to smoke
And the candles were dancing and swaying
And the moonlight was laughing as the darkness awoke
We are falling forever down

Let's begin baby
Come on give in
He won't be back till the morning

Now we cry on the ceiling as we hold the hands of time
And it's a rose we'll be growing in the gutter
Just a cold empty feeling now a stranger in our minds
We are falling forever down

Let's begin baby
Come on give in
He won't be back till the morning
Track Name: It's Only The Weather
Some kind of answer is buried in light
So let's get together tonight
It's only the weather baby I won't do you no wrong

You walk much faster when I'm at your side
So I'll build a highway and ride
It's only the weather baby I won't do you no wrong

You block your doorway all day and hide
While I'm begging for you outside
It's only the weather baby I won't do you no wrong

Write me a letter drop me a line
And let's get together sometime
It's only the weather baby I won't do you no wrong

You're at the station waving goodbye
So I'll find a skyway and fly
It's only the weather baby I won't do you no wrong

I miss you darling too much to cry
I'll start me a fire and die
It's only the weather baby I won't do you no wrong
It's only the weather baby I won't do you no wrong
Track Name: A Shade Of Her
Rest easy now
I'll be going now
To take the darkness down
From where you search

And then I met a girl
And she was beautiful
And I wrapped my soul
In shades of her

And I looked at you
You looked at me too
It's all that we could do
As Eden burned

And I'm awake at dawn
And everything is gone
And I reflect upon
A shade of her

A book of poetry
A lonesome history
An ancient melody
A poison cure

A foreign fantasy
Of electricity
The ghost of everything
A shade of her

And every now and then
I remember when
I was tangled in
A shade of her
Track Name: Come On And Bury Me
Come on and bury me
Come on and bury me
I'm down but I ain't beat
Come on and bury me

The moon is overhead
The moon is overhead
By love I will be led
The moon is overhead

I'm not afraid to die
I'm not afraid to die
I live a lonely life
I'm not afraid to die

Oh baby don't you go
Oh baby don't you go
You know I need you so
Oh baby please don't go

True love it has no end
True love it has no end
Come on and take my hand
True love it has no end
Track Name: Difference
It makes no difference if you go or if you stay
It don't matter either way I don't mind
It makes no difference if you go or if you stay
It don't matter either way I'll be fine

It makes no difference if you're right or if you're wrong
Or if you're gone for far too long I don't mind
It makes no difference if you're right or if you're wrong
Or if you're gone for far too long I'll be fine

It makes no difference if you're here or if you're there
No I really do not care I don't mind
It makes no difference if you're here or if you're there
No I really do not care I'll be fine

It makes no difference if you go or if you stay
It don't matter either way i don't mind
It makes no difference if you go or if you stay
It don't matter either way I'll be fine
Track Name: Men Of Weary Kind
I was on my merry way when I was mistaken
So I grabbed a little faith and I started praying
Oh I jumped into the sea just to think it over
You're my pistol baby you're the waking slumber

And in my mind you'll be tonight
I'm a man of weary kind

I fell frozen in the park that's when I let go yeah
I was stranded in the dark and I just let go yeah
I'm the poor boy on the street I'm the last pretender
I'm the one you'll never meet I am yours forever

And in my mind you'll be tonight
I'm a man of weary kind

What's become of you dear child have you marked your passing
Till your strength and heart of wild become everlasting
We shall sing and we shall roam we shall shake the rafters
We shall toil upon the stone we will die of laughter

But in our minds you'll be tonight
We are men of weary kind
Yes in our minds you'll be tonight
We are men of weary kind
Track Name: Into The Deep
Full moon
Shining righteous through this dark room
And if perhaps I do let go too soon
I shall dive into the deep

Go out
Don't forsake them take them all out
The emptiness you've left has run out
And it's closing in on me

Bells chime
In the clockwork rapping code rhymes
I received you somewhat ghost like
When I once belonged to you

Breath sings
Pouring out among the evening
Through the church and up the ceiling
As my unworthiness protrudes

Don't cry
Just pretend that you are alright
Hide the madness in the those soft eyes
Save it for another day

Land ho
slipping steady up the meadow
Where the lovers shoot the arrows
As the wise men dig their graves
Track Name: World Away
Back in time a world away
Another life another day
I have come to recognize your face
A world away

Free your mind of fear at last
may your sadness come to pass
give it all a second chance
A world away

And I will glide into the air
And though it seems nobody cares
I will sing my songs so fair
A world away

And you know I get so tired
Don't you know I get so tired
Oh you know I get so tired

Back in time a world away
Another life another day
I have come to recognize my face
A world away

And you know I get so tired
Don't you know I get so tired
Oh you know I get so tired
Track Name: Westward Wing
Thinking back on your hometown now
Getting lost in the morning
Taking off on the one sweet kiss you abandoned

Precious stars of the northern sky
Could not hold back forever
Nor the warmth of a true embrace in the summer

All has gone with her heart so fair
Sailing low to the shoreline
It was then you remembered where you were headed

You arrived on a westward wing
And you failed to mistake her
For to pass up tomorrows spark for another

Thinking back on your hometown now
Getting lost in the morning
Taking off on the one sweet kiss you abandoned
