Track Name: Changes in the Scenery (feat. Kishi Bashi)
I'm not made of stone
graphite'll do, please use me to write down,
Changes in the Scenery

Then leave me the note,
I'll have an idea, what's on your mind about
Changes in the Scenery

Don't you think there comes a time when
all the world is bleak and no one stops to speak
for fear they'll run out of the things to say
(Maybe we will find our voice)
"The weather's clear, it's fine out today."

I'm not made of stone
graphite'll do, please use me to write down,
Changes in the Scenery
Track Name: On and On and On
He was raised to be religious
Oh no
But he could not find his call.
It took 20 years.
Slapped on the head, but couldn't speak in tongues,
Could name the prophets, not believe in one,
and it goes On and On and On knew that
when the world would end he'd be in hell.

He was stolen by his father
oh no.
And his mother hated dad
So she stole him back
Went back and forth between them
and for no other reason
than to go on and on and on and on
and show the other one that they had won.

He was driven off the deep end
oh no.
Joined a cult in Tennessee.
Brought his wife there too
And they had a new family
manufactured houses and a guarantee
which went on and on so when he met with God
he'd sign a lease so we'd have room.

It was later in the evening
oh no
When his sister called his name.
She said, "Brother dear,
there is no use in whining
But our grandfather is dying."
And he'll go on and on and on and on and on and on and on
until he's dead.

Soaked myself in a river
oh no
'Cause they cannot find me here.
Oh I killed a man,
and they will never find him
though his legacy presides him
and he'll go on and on and on and on and
they will never find him 'cause he's drowned.
And he'll go on and on and on and on and
they will never find him 'cause he's drowned.
And he'll go on and on and on and on and
they will never find him 'cause he's dead.
Track Name: Run Away (feat. Kyshona Armstrong)
You got to crawl before you walk,
You got to crawl before you walk
You got to crawl before you walk yourself away
You got to crawl before you walk
And there ain't never time to talk
You got to crawl before you run yourself away.

You got to walk before you run
You got to walk before you run
You got to walk before you run yourself away
You got to walk before you run
Whether in the rain or in the sun
You got to walk before you run yourself away

I didn't want to
Run run run run the wrong way

Did you ever see the man up in the clouds
she's looking down from the sky
he will tear you all to pieces in a matter of a blink of an eye

Did you ever see the girl she's walking down the street
and lookin' so fine.
You ain't never gonna see me cry
You ain't never gonna see me die.

You got to run be for you fly
You got to run be for you fly
You got to run be for you fly yourself sky high
You got to run be for you fly
and please don't ever ask me why
you got to run before you run
You got to run be for you fly yourself away.
Track Name: Good God
Oh, good god gracious
Oh, you carry often
Oh, you carry often
Good great god

Beg darlin' please til the break of dawn
Beg darling please, til the work is done.
Beg darlin please, til the dead are gone,
and then rise up and carry on home.

Oh, good god gracious
Oh, you carry often
Oh, you carry often
Good great god
Track Name: the Ums - Sleepy Time
I hope that Sleepy Time goes well for you...
Track Name: Big Trees (Rough Demo)
BIG TREES
There were big men, in silhouette, they moved fast beyond the marshes, just before the boats.
They moved so fast they never moved, the world beyond a moat.
One day they said they would uproot, a taste for bigger things.
They grew too large and moved too slow to keep up with coming spring.
They settled onto solid ground, as their feet dug into soil.
The boats had passed, along with spring, the fall, then winter spoil.
One lonely ship sailed by, years past,
picked up those left behind.
And saw some trees, in silhouette, never moved beyond the marshes,
their barked stripped bare, yet swore the world was kind.
Track Name: Rock n Roll (Rough Demo)
It's the gum under my sneakers
It's the ghost under my bed
It's the bones inside my closet
And the birds inside my head
There are bloodstains on my T-shirt
And band-aids on my knee
Daddy Long Legs on the ceiling
And they're staring back at me

SOME KIND OF CHORUS
SOME KIND OF ANTHEM TO SAVE THE DAY
SOME KIND OF GOD DAMN ANSWER
TO MAKE THE NIGHTMARES GO AWAY!

The TV is set on reruns
And we're always watching Cops
It's freezing here in Michigan
But I’m too far gone to stop
Joseph Conrad told me
Hank Williams told me too
There is darkness on the road ahead
But there’s a light inside of you

SOME KIND OF CHORUS
SOME KIND OF ANTHEM TO SAVE THE DAY
SOME KIND OF GOD DAMN ANSWER
TO MAKE THE NIGHTMARES GO AWAY!

You see nothing in this world is perfect
Except maybe the women on TV
And when you finally get you one
They'll leave you with the DVD
So don't take it all for granted
And don’t you take it on too fast
If rock and roll don't kill you
It’s going to levitate your ass

SOME KIND OF CHORUS
SOME KIND OF ANTHEM TO SAVE THE DAY
SOME KIND OF GOD DAMN ANSWER
TO MAKE THE NIGHTMARES GO AWAY!
Track Name: All in Good Time (Rough w/ Dave Daniels Lyrics)
With the chain around your heart
Watch upon your wrist
And diamonds on your ear
That I bought for your birthday wish
You’ll stay with me right now -
Though your body is far away
I cannot seem to let you go
And space cannot separate

Chorus 1
Baby can you see me now?
I’m not waiting for the light
The doors will open once again
All in good time (good time)

Won’t you please me
With the windows open wide?
The glass might shatter across the floor
All in good time (good time)

Verse 2
We get cabin fever when the winter comes
We start fighting about the mail
You try and leave me for a week
When the house starts to feel like Guitar Jail
You come back home like a drunken dervish
I wish I was singing to you
We try to hold each other like we know we can
But I can’t dance around with a guitar in hand

Chorus 2
Baby can you see me
I can finally see the light
The frost is breaking now
All in good time
And I know it’s not easy
Always putting up a fight
But the door is open now
All in good time

Bridge:
Leave for the coast: straight for LA
Back to your mother’s, the place you were raised…
But wherever you go that’s where you are…
If it’s back home in bed, or down at the bar

CHORUS 1
Baby can you see me now?
I’m not waiting for the light
The doors will open once again
All in good time (good time)
Won’t you please me
With the windows open wide?
The glass might shatter across the floor
All in good time (good time
