Track Name: Adelaide
I give you the gift of my only true heart
Do with it what you will.
Tear it asunder or keep it with your own just
Do with it what you will.
For you my body's aching, my foundation's shaking
Good Lord, save my soul.
For I fear I may be swallowed whole.
Light a candle for me under this darkened sky
Under this pale moon
The blood in my veins whispers your name
What a sinister tune
I'll hide in the shadows and wait for your call
Wait forever if need be
Oh, hurry, love, come for me.
Just love me, love me
Say you will be mine
Say it's destined in the stars.
Love me, love me
Say you will be mine
The world has never seen a love like ours.

In a dream I saw us walking in a wide open field
Along a river of blood
You held my hand so sweetly, under my spell completely
Our names written in the mud
You promised to me truly, every word spoken truly "In life
There is only you."
My heart began to swell, poison teardrops fell
Clouds burst and rain set in.
I felt a chill creep across my skin.
With every passing minute of every passing day,
I'm more sure of our fate.
But my beauty is fading and my bones are growing weak.
Tell me how long must I wait?
For soon we will be wed, yes.
I'll be your bonnie bride, oh yes.
Forever together we will be
I promise my only heart to thee.
Just love me, love me
Say you will be mine
Say it's destined in the stars.
Love me, love me
Say you will be mine
The world has never seen a love like ours.
Track Name: What of Dreams
I heard it in the wind last night
Just like Joni said.
It nearly shook the pictures off the wall.
And I dream of angry oceans and lovers long dead
And none of it matters at all.
What of dreams, anyway?
I fight demons every day in broad daylight.
I rage against the living dead,
Keep the teeth inside my head
And maintain everything's alright.

And I almost believe it
On a clear day I can see it
The view from up here blurs and then clears
The waking world disappears

I never think of falling
I never see my face
And I appreciate that, that's what I call Grace
Even when my voice is gone,
Soon comes the dawn
And a reason.
There's always a reason.

And I almost believe it
On a clear day I can see it
The view from up here blurs and then clears
The waking world disappears
Track Name: Hey, Man
Is that my head or the telephone screaming?
Am I just drunk or are the walls breathing?
It feels like summer
Like being held underwater
And I think I might be dead.

You ever wonder about the sound
Of an entire city as its infrastructure falls down?
It's like the ocean
But you don't know, man.
You should try looking up.

Here I am at the right place, at the right time
With a busted heart and a broken mind.
Here's a hearty salute to the soles of my boots.
Here's a wink, a drink, and a goodbye.

Weren't you the one who once said
You can only lead those that wish to be lead?
It's disgusting how much I want this thing
How much I've only ever wanted you.

Here I am at the right place, at the right time
With a busted heart and a broken mind.
Here's a hearty salute to the soles of my boots.
Here's a wink, a drink, and a goodbye.
Track Name: Mad Max
Oh my darling, don't you cry
All the world is dark tonight.
The stars are falling
There is a silence thick and cold.
If you're quiet, if you're still
If it is God's Will
Tomorrow will find us.

Hold to me
Believe
Wrap your fingers around mine
Fold yourself against my breast.
Release.
Find yourself in the solace of sleep
After all, it's only the world that's burning.

And I swear I remember as sky so blue it was nearly clear
And the Burlington Northern's song ghost-like and sad
The sun shone like diamonds on the river, I remember
Now memories are all I have.
In this sorrowful place, the air feels rotten
Those golden days, nearly forgotten.

I promise we won't be the last
Sanctuary's coming
I can feel the earth humming.
My love what you really fear is the unknown rushing near
So I will stand with you.

And I swear I remember as sky so blue it was nearly clear
And the Burlington Northern's song ghost-like and sad
The sun shone like diamonds on the river, I remember
Now memories are all I have.
In this sorrowful place, the air tastes rotten
Those golden days, nearly forgotten.
Track Name: The 13th Apostle
Oh, I miss my mother
Oh, I miss my home.
I was tempted by another
Tempted to roam.
Now I'm a rounder and a rambler,
Heart moving like a river.

A flower from December
A moon in Capricorn
A father's only daughter
Taking only what I'm owed.
I don't mind the rain coming in,
I stay ahead of the storm.
I don't mind this life of sin.
When I die, I know where I'm going.

Once I dreamt of a meadow
A lark's song in the air
A lightness to my footsteps
And perfume in my hair.
Then I woke to find a bottle,
An empty glass sitting there
The 13th Apostle
Without a prayer.

So girls, mind your mammas
And keep your heart your own.
Read the Good Book
Leave those travelin' men alone.
There's no future for a rounder,
Just a little light at most.
Ramblin' down the highway
A tumbleweed or a ghost.
Track Name: Queen City of the Plains
Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you shelter me?
Lift my soul.
Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you cradle me?
Sing me home.
I have claimed you as my own.

What the fuck am I doing here holding on to a warm beer
Staring holes into the floor?
You were my saving Truth,
You're just a folly of my youth
But I believed in the infinity of your view
When the Flatlands were all I knew.

And if I miss the riverside, it's just an attempt to hide
Only a tribute to my vanity.
You were my first and last
A simple product of my past
But I swear alligence, in sincerity
You are the very blood flowing through me.

You have made me
You tested and saved me
Carved your name into my bones.
If I ever curse your name, know I love you all the same
Queen City, you will always be
Beautiful to me.

Guess you'd say I'm doing well
Hovering just outside of hell
Thinking hard on the state of things.
You could say I'm doing fine
I'm making good use of God's good time
And who know what tomorrow brings?
Who knows anything?

You have made me
You tested and saved me
Carved your name into my bones.
If I ever curse your name, know I love you all the same
Queen City, you will always be
Beautiful to me.

Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you shelter me?
Lift my soul.
Oh, my city!
My Queen City!
Won't you cradle me?
Sing me home.
I have claimed you as my own.
