Track Name: Alleluh
And bathed as in the sound of waking
Mother, father child and womb
Rest our mouthes to wade the river
Some day glory called
I won't contest its providence
I question if it calls
Oh Alleluh!

All bridges blinded
The rain falling on everything
And it all comes back to earth
If heaven don't fall down
It'll be a simple time that glory called
Oh Alleluh!

Now you give me that old time religion....
Track Name: Sunset
I went down to Reno
To find a girl with long black hair
I walked down to Tahoe
to find she was not there
The sun came down on those desert street
I was feeling sad and low
reeds of New Orleans was calling out
And lord I had to go

Ch:
Singing Hey
That red lights shining in
Singing Hey
I curse your city
And lord I'm moving on again

Broken Hearts, broken stones
They left me by the dcks
I was stranded with my useless words
Love wailed out in the wind
Well the sun came down on those Souhern streets
I was feeling sad and low
New York town was calling
And lord I had to go

Chorus
Track Name: Quiet Faith
Emma Mae with quiet faith
in your grey dress by the sea
Its you that I dream of
Its you when I awake
So when you say that you're leaving
How could you my love?

There'll be a rifle on my knee
When I beg for you to stay
So when you say that your leaving
How could you my love?

Emma Mae with quiet faith
In your grey dress by the sea
Ain't I the luck one
to bear your heart in name
And to know where you lay?

Come go with me and we'll lay your grey dress down by the sea
Track Name: Stay the night
Would you stay the night?
The cool and lonesome night
The moon is full, but I hear talk of rain
When it comes, you'll have nowhere to lay
So would you stay the night?

Ain't a star in the sky
The fields lay long and dark
Cool wind is blowing
Birds ain't singing
but they'll be singing
in the morning sun
Why don't you?
Oh would you stay the night?
Track Name: Oh Theodore
Losing breath's not like sleep
Ill walk the kids when I wake
Though none of these are ones
I have made
Sleep where you'd find me
I'll do it for days
And I'll leave some bitter too

If not for sorrow

Now that mama's gone
I've never see you all look so cruel
But I'll never wake
Now that I'm dead and gone
I've never seen you all look so cruel
And I'll leave some bitter too

If not for sorrow
Track Name: About You
Laughing with your teeth out
You're wailing through the glass
What I would do
Would I not do?

Now you're dancing across his lonesome plain
with the word across your breast
And I'm thinking about you

Ch:
I'm thinking about you
And what I would do
Would I not do...

I saw them lift her from the ground
For they could not ever live alone
You say we'll be wed by Sunday morning
But you've been known to lie before
Out on the roof
The sun's still wet
Our shadows drink up the boulevard
And I'm thinking about you


Chorus
Track Name: Tomcat
Ooh that baby, she needs a martyr
She needs a body of her own
And I. . .

She says "tom cat, tear that skin back
I have nothing to show"
And its shedding fear
The Lily's all cry no
And there ain't no shame in going home
No there ain't no shame in that

Speaking in the hall
I swore to give her my all
But she needs a body of her own

She says "tom cat, tear that skin back
I've nothing show"
Track Name: Arlene
Arlene, you know our love don't mean a thing
It'll surely wither down to bone
wishing too all lies undone
They're still falling, where love your breath was once a kiss

Ch:
If I'd have known
I would've said we were wasting time

Arlene, why do you always push when you mean for me to stay?
That's alright mama
I'm sure I'l go in a day or too
Sweet, sweet mama, I know you've been lonely
That's alright I've been lonely too

Chorus
Track Name: The Visitor
Nowhere in the sky
Black with birds
Nowhere in the sand
The mouthes flood grief
With reason my love:
there's not a prayer in the world

And I heard mother cry
"where is my lord?"
Well, he's nowhere in this world
The burdens of sorrow, I'd sooner forget
Still I truck 'em down

The mouthes flood grief with reason my love:
there's not a prayer in this world
The burdens of sorrow, I'd sooner forget
Still I truck them down
Track Name: When the Bed
When the bed lifts
The faith we required will be none at all
The whore will be standing
im deep fields of blue
still I'll be mumbling on about what's left and what's gone
who made the banquet and who stood in the hall
Well you know my hands
everyplace that they've been to, they've returned again

Now the shoulders cannot carry
What the back has brough
eyelids threaded,
the surgeon stalks down the block
Once was a man of comfort and ease
Now the lips swollen, the lamb burns in the field
Smoke smothers the prayer

Pick it up
the bed will not break

In deep fields of blue
Track Name: The Best is Yet to Come
Set a table
Set a footstool before me
You can tell all my loves, I'll meet them there
All that's passed between us
Cannot ever be undone
So I'll fix my mind to go
Where my fathers wept before
And there I'll drink to still my beating heart

Chorus:
Tried to tell her but I fell apart
Cool and easy's how to break her heart
Though our love was never near, now it's gone

My love was al flesh and tender,
Words could never mend her

Chorus
