Track Name: The Calendar Lies
the calendar lies
feel like i'm getting younger
tomorrow is gone
i can't wait any longer
the future goes up in flames
couldn't burn any stronger
i can hardly breathe
too close to the sun
feed the fire
nothin' wrong with me
too close to the sun
feel the fire
opportunity knocks
and the door opens wider
tried to sell my good name
never did find a buyer
you say my future's in flames
i say it's all lookin' brighter
i can hardly breathe
too close to the sun
feed the fire
nothin' wrong with me
too close to the sun
feel the fire
Track Name: Under My Door
the man in the room has flowers
shades of yellow - skin and bones
waitin’ for son and daughter
usin' words like sticks and stones
the man in the room is movin’
dancin' darkness on the wall
growin' the longest colors
wheels and shadows in the hall
and sometimes i wonder if he sees the light under my door
the girl with the book has powers
turnin' pages - big ideas
keys to another corridor
lookin' to sell her panacea
the girl with the book is smilin'
all calm and cool and collected
happy to serve somebody
runnin' along - disconnected
and sometimes I wonder if she sees the light under my door
come to - come to life
Track Name: Odd Man Out
i've been sort of wonderin'
not enough to matter
just sort of wonderin'
somewhere in between thinking and not
somewhere in between getting and got
odd - man - out
choosin' sides, choosin' sides
odd - man - out
you decide, you decide
i've been sort of tryin'
not enough to matter
just sort of tryin'
somewhere in between honest and not
somewhere in between
the shooting and shot
odd - man - out
choosin' sides, choosin' sides
odd - man - out
you decide, you decide
Track Name: Bridges
sailors travel the harbor
exiles, patriots
terror shakin' on buses
prisoners, immigrants
crossin' back and forth
headin' south and north
runnin' over me
runnin' under me
runnin' over me
runnin' under me
trailers haulin' small houses
jumpers, life savers
children pedalin' daydreams
lovers, flag wavers
ridin' back and forth
goin' south and north
runnin' over me
runnin' under me
runnin' over me
runnin' under me
a bridge to the future
a bridge to the past
too many secrets
i'm sorry i asked
Track Name: Killers in the Closet
call me petty
call me anytime
finally
the perfect urban crime
fight me
bite me
maybe i'll fight back
who cares
as long as we react
runnin' water
mornin' sun
bloody mary
you're no fun
i'm hidin' you
in my bedroom
i don't like wonderin' where you've been with killers in the closet
say i'm pretty
say it like you mean it
sell me a little self esteem
pick my pocket
leave an IOU
all good
as long as i'm with you and you
holy water
holy son
mother mary
have some fun
get off your knees
come dance with me
you keep my secret i keep your sin with killers in the closet
take my chances
take my time
got no answers to deny
shallow water
wayward son
sister mary
no more fun
I'll follow you
I always do
under the guilt of a white man's skin
with killers in the closet
Track Name: Pretend It
my father's only gun
scared off his only son
bear hugs and tremblin' hands
trigger the shiftin' sands
i can (i can still remember)
pretend it never happened
no one has to know
we often end up goin'
where we shouldn't go
pretend it never happened
make yourself a deal
pretend until - till it's real
my girl is too far gone
and she keeps movin' on
i'll miss her when it rains
excuses can't explain
i can (i can still remember)
pretend it never happened
say it isn't so
we often end up goin'
where we shouldn't go
pretend it never happened
only you know how to feel
pretend until - till it's real
Track Name: Be My Jury
try - i don't remember the loaded questions
try - there's nothin' here to find
love - is silent to the end
listen - listen to the peaceful, hollow sound
hear the guilty hit the ground
if i'm to blame - i have no shame
i won't confess to anyone
who's gonna be my jury now?
why - i took the fall for you
that you took from me
why - we brought this on ourselves
love - is blind when it begins
listen - listen to the mystery and the doubt
can we figure any of it out?
i'll raise my hand - up on the stand
i won't confess to anyone
lost innocence is never found
if i'm to blame - i have no shame
i won't confess to anyone
who's gonna be my jury now?
Track Name: Throw the Rest Away (Hold On)
all those words
all those books
all those wasted words
in all those good books
how could he?
why would she?
god would not have all that much to say
god would not have all that much to say
hold on to the golden rule
hold on to the golden rule
throw the rest away
throw the rest away
Track Name: All Give No Take
wall around this city
keepin' all the crazy in
load your weapons, hide your fear
hopin' that the guys win
better hope the good guys win
and if you'd only search your conscience
oh what a difference it could make
rewrite the moral of your story
all give, no take
ring around the halo
keepin' all the crazy out
lock your mind up, find a key
sing it from the roof so loud
singin' what you know about
and if you'd only wait a lifetime
oh what a habit you could break
there is a hand for every basket
all give, no take
and if you'd only search your conscience
oh what a habit you could break
and if you'd only wait a lifetime
oh what a difference it could make
and if you'd only had more chances
how would you live those yesterdays?
there is a door outside your window
all give, no take
Track Name: Money in the Meter
don't make me count backwards
or walk a straight line
here's not the place and now's not the time
parked cars frame the strip
rollin' off the film's edge
the moon's out of focus and i'm off my meds
arguments and accusations spill out over the lot
reckonings and retributions
is that all you've got?
put some money in the meter
compensate and reconcile
put more money in the meter
we'll be stayin' for a while
don't make me crawl forward
or talk a straight line
here is the place and now is the time
cold songs fill the air from a summer flat tire
the stars are for sale and i found a buyer
arguments and accusations
gather under the light
reckonings and retributions
take a wrong and make it right
put some money in the meter
compensate and reconcile
put more money in the meter
we'll be stayin' for a while
arguments and accusations
rise above power lines
reckonings and retributions
find your high road, i'll find mine
put some money in the meter
compensate and reconcile
put more money in the meter
we'll be stayin' for a while
put some money in the meter
compensate and reconcile
put your money in the meter
we'll be stayin' for a while
