Track Name: Goldmines
Like an old man you don't choose to wait
and stay the same like motion on an old park swing.
Trouble's got me by the throat today
well it's still boring like last weeks unforgiving face.
Seems like you hold me down
to watch me drown.
Still I think you're coming around
so I will wait for you.
If all you've got is pictures into space
I don't want a thing to do with goldmines in the sea.
And this issue with crime across the plains
you should point that same light on your self destructing face.
Seems like you hold me down to watch me drown.
Still I think you're coming around, so I will wait.
So like a young man, I'll tempt the devil's game
and sleep all day and hope someone remembers me.
Seems like you hold me down to watch me drown.
Still I think you're coming around, so I will wait for you.
Track Name: Redwoods
Found myself in a Redwood's arms
for all I know it's where I from
With skin as bark and bark that's old
I'm getting down its been so long
I saw you float out through a storm
For all I know it's where you're from
with hair so long it sweeps the floor
Its been so long since we've been young
I beg and plead to wave myself goodbye
Can't wait to see what I say to her this time
I'm in a burning tree spreading embers through the sky
all night
Found myself in a Redwood's arms
I gripped so hard I'll never fall
I'll be a boy till the earth falls apart
and I'll never never lay bare my heart
You'll never make it through the storm
and drift away without a course
I can't forget the time we were apart
it's been working for me so far
So I beg and plead to wave myself goodbye
Can't wait to see what I say to her this time
I'm in a burning tree spreading embers through the sky
all night
Track Name: Madeline
Bring on the Rain
I'll say it again
I need you to come home
so I can rest my bones
I've tried my best alone
I know you've been harmed
He grabbed you too hard
and let you slip away
You cried for him to change
and be a Man again.
My arms are dying to hold you close and hard
Madeline.
My throat is drying from calling for you to come
Madeline.
I sat on a train
waiting for Maine
to take me in its arms
so you could stay unharmed
I'm hoping you will call.
I met her before
your girl under four
Your baby's been crying all day
You need to catch a break
and let me be your Man.
My arms are dying to hold you close and hard
Madeline.
My throat is drying from calling for you to come
Madeline.
Oh to prove I would stay
I'd lay in the rain
just to catch a cold
Because I know you would hold me,
Madeline.
My arms are dying to hold you close and hard
Madeline.
My throat is drying from calling for you to come
Madeline.
Track Name: Past Tense
He left for London
said to clear his head.
Went early morning to try and beat the dread.
She asks will you come back, she won't ask again.
The panes shudder
the sky looks gray ahead.
He dreams of a lover,
cast shadows on his plans.
They say he's lonely and best of luck in the end.
Call him out will you please,
he's gotten lost overseas.
Now he hopes and he hopes and he looks for those
weak in the knees.
Send him home for a change
he needs a reason to stay.
A thin man now reads the news of the world.
Said he'll head back soon,
maybe look up the girl.
Maybe she's lonely
a little lost like him.
Oh the smile comes back
but he's far too late to touch.
She's a grown woman,
with a Man and her Boy and their Love.
Oh he'll try the Island,
they say his pride's more a crutch.
Call him out will you please,
he's gotten lost overseas.
Now he looks and he looks and he hopes for those
weak in the knees.
Send him home for a change
He needs a reason to stay.
Track Name: Rich Man
Where would I be with a rich man's walk,
I'd have lay of the land but no time to talk.
So don't be so sad,
I can use my hands
to bring warmth to home.
that no fortune could own.
You say there will be trouble in the months ahead
You say there will be no grain to make the bread
That we should leave the farm,
oh no.
You think you'll be happy in those tenements
You think you'll be happy when I'm late again
and I tend to drink
and leave you untouched
so please stop to think
oh the hurt it could cause.
Where I would I be with a rich man's walk
doesn't matter to me with you my love.
So don't be so sad
I can use my hands
to bring warmth to home,
that no fortune can own.
Track Name: Useless
Here comes the fallen son waiting for reprimand.
Why bother with strong words, it's useless with soft hands.
He sits in the back seat hoping the sun blinds a tired man.
cause why bother with living when life's about devouring.
Her head is held up by my hands
It's not fair
She cries out pain's too hard to bare
Its not fair.
In walks another face, this one won't run
She smiles with ignorance blissful intentions
He hopes for another day to renew attraction
But he's blinded by false hopes and worn out connections.

(Chorus)

Here comes the fallen son tripping on cracks too wide
He missed all the shadows and holes where he could hide.
Track Name: It's Over Now
We watch lovers stare
in crowded park
and dream away.
Her tongue becomes faint
still we wander to pass the day
Baby is on the way
shouldn't we slow down,
it's not too late.
She steals the crowd
and I beg too loud
we said we'd never say
It's over now.
The park becomes bare
and those lovers hide away.
I think of the gin
that will warm me
while you play dead.
This old love affair
thought we'd stay young
by holding our breath.
She steals the crowd
but I beg too loud
we said we'd never say
It's over now.
She fakes her falls
but I'll always call
we said we'd never say,
It's over now.
We watch lovers stare
they seem to gaze on
and hope for the best.
I whisper come back
still she moves on
and seems content.
