Track Name: Meddle
I feel like I am floating away
Fading across your back
It's miles out of my head but I'm alright now
I let it go, I breathed it out

And it felt like gold, molten in my throat
The day the bluff gave 'way eroded all I wrote
Once upon the sands buried by my hands
Will not see them again

And I ain't never one to meddle, no
I never get into the middle of it
And now it's heavier than metal
You're leaning on my levers
Putting pressure on my pedals 'til it goes and I fold
I oughta let it go, I oughta let it go

And it felt like ghosts
And echoed down the hall
I was breathing in your dust when the rain began to fall
It was rolling on my skin, rapping on the tin
Telling me everything
Track Name: Tides
Breaze off the bluff
Seas been gettin' pretty rough
Come within my reach
Your touch only retreats
And each time it takes a bit more out of me
Each time it takes a bit more out of me

Nothing but blue for miles
Sirens and St. Elmo's fire
Oh, the undertow
How it erodes you so
And you'll let it have all that's left of you
You let it have all that's left of you

When that tide rolls in let it wash over this continent
Be unstoppable and unforetold
When it all ends its gonna start again
All the miles we walked have not been seen in years
All the miles we walked have not been seen in years

As a desert here I lay
Smiling in the sun all day
There's a man up in the moon
He's comin' home real soon
And I don't know what he's gonn' make of me
I don't know what that man's gonn' make of me

When that tide rolls in let it wash over this continent
Be unstoppable and unforetold
When it all ends its gonna start again
All the miles we walked have not been seen in years
All the miles we walked have not been seen in years
Track Name: Burn The Witch
You've been waitin' for something
I couldn't really be sure
Tryin'a find a place to live
Making sure that everything fits just right

I don't wanna make a name
Get off my ass and take the reins
Mamma said it would be good for me
Moving on to something new

Your friends running ahead of you
They're trimming their suits and cutting their ties
More of kin and less of kind
I can't leave you

Burn the witch oh so old
Burn the winter and the cold
Take the stake a tie her down
Don't let my people leave this town
Home, home, home is where I wanna be

I don't know what it's not easy to tell you
The reason why I have to stay
Ask the witch she knows it well
She wrote the words inside my name

Burn the witch oh so old
Burn the winter and the cold
Take the stake a tie her down
Don't let my people leave this town
Home, home, home is where I wanna be
Track Name: Indigo Silk
Pile on the coals
Keep your eyes peeled, uncertainties before us
That wild something inside that tries to feel throughout the night
Until you know you'll take care what you become
Grease upon old Jacob's Ladder rungs
It's hard to hold, those calloused hands reach out for kingdom come
All idle devils split their bitter tongues

Bed of decadence
You lay me down in smooth indigo silks
You draw the line that caged me in
Roll up those sleeves let's see the dirt under those nails

So now you know you take care of what you become
Grease upon old Jacob's Ladder rung
It's hard to hold, those calloused hands reach out for kingdom come
All idle devils split their bitter tongues

And a light will come to shine
To show you nothing here was cast in black and white
So, hold on, it's a long way down
Hold your head, we spin 'round and 'round
Track Name: The Weather
Right now I would give up a fortune
And not understand why you're stepping out
I guess you know that door's always open
If you get back at some hour when I can't be found
You'll be fine, you got a knack for coping
Mama once told me it couldn't hurt to have faith
But will I drown, or can I keep on floating
In all the bullshit and blood that you spilt in this place

Lay it on down, lay it on thick
Spread it around in the wounds that I lick
Say it out loud, 'til my very last breath
I gave you my best, I could've cared less

And I swear you won't get satisfaction
Not when I give you my two goddamn sense
You're on the prowl for your cheap piece of action
Virgin pairs of ears who will bend to the faces you invent
Can't be found, packed up and left town
Boarded those windows, well prepared for the storm
But hammer in hand, you'll tear it all down
Burn every last bit of their homes, keep your selfish heart warm

Lay it on down, lay it on thick
Spread it around in the wounds that I lick
Say it out loud, 'til my very last breath
I gave you my best, I could've cared less

Lay it on down, lay it on thick
Spread it around in the wounds that I lick
Say it out loud, 'til my very last breath
I gave you my best, I could've cared less

Say it out loud, 'til my very last breath
I gave you my best, I could've cared less
