Track Name: When We Are Young
when we are young
we clothe ourselves
and go walking in the rain

when we are young
we will try to hide
the mistakes we have made

when we are old,
the young will come from behind
and push us in our graves

when we are old
we will leave behind
everything that we gained

i don't wanna find myself
i don't wanna find myself
cause they treat you
and they beat you
and they eat you
yea yea yea yea
Track Name: If the Sun is Real
Everything lasts until it leaves my mind
This ain't no place for a young man
And as we tumble through the years gone by
It's still too strange to understand
Strange to understand

Wise is the man who can let it go
Let it flow and roll and run downstream
But when the man comes knocking at my door
Well then I'll know it's time to leave

And if the sun is real, I'm gonna make it happen
And if the sky is real, I'm gonna make it happen
And if the sun is real, I'm gonna make it happen
And if the sky is real, I'm gonna make it happen

And after we've been here ten hundred years
And can't agree what it's all for
I think I'll string up my guitar again
I will not worry anymore

And if the sun is real, I'm gonna make it happen
And if the sky is real, I'm gonna make it happen
And if the sun is real, I'm gonna make it happen
And if the sky is real, I'm gonna make it happen
Track Name: Exodus
Oxygen, may I use you today again
I know it's a waste, 'til I find my place
Or I make my Exodus

Gravity, hold me fast to the Earth again
Teach me I'm real, show me how to feel
Bind me to the land again

Promises lie and wind me back wrong again
Cover me with your talk, I'd just as soon walk
I don't need no more promises

Oh and vanity, you can't rest your old yoke on me
You are all that I hate, your wealth and your weight
Your pull in society
Track Name: You Don't Know What Its Like
I built the mountains, I drank the lake dream
I rule the day glow from my sleep
I fought the pavement, I made the dry land
I hold the clouds up, I am the preacher

And I'm shakin' now
And I'm shakin' now
And I'm shakin' now
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like

High-five the god hand, I smoke from the river and I-
I made the map world and I, I form dividers and I-
I raze the skyline, I taste the embers
I salt the dead Earth, so I won't remember

And I'm shakin' now
And I'm shakin' now
And I'm shakin' now
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
Track Name: Christine
Christine will your voice ever show
How you are in your soul?
Christine, hormones and dreams, Christine
Christine will we ever find out
What your shit is about?
Christine, peaches and cream, Christine

Shake the dust from your feet
This whole life is a dream, Christine
Hormones and dreams, Christine
Peaches and cream, Christine

Christine you left nature to die
Can you teach us to hide?
Christine, hormones and dreams, Christine
And Christine, you keep god up at night
Or maybe he's sleeping just fine
Christine, peaches and cream, Christine

Shake the dust from your feet
This whole life is a dream, Christine
Hormones and dreams, Christine
Most folks talk, they can't see, Christine
This damn world is so mean, Christine
If it lives it can bleed, Christine
Track Name: When We Die
Your life, you lead it bleakly
Spreads through days and nights and days
It meanders down it's path until
Your senses start to fade
And the lies we're told when we were young
Break down and blow again
Until nothing more is black and white
In fact, it's very grey

And then we remember being young
How did it get undone?
You're sprawling, searching for the answers
Life can be lost, but it can't be won
It can't be won

And if it's peace we find it dying
Spirit, let the time be near
I'm not scared of myths and legends
If heaven's calling I can't hear
But all things are truly weary and it pains to even say
Nothing new beneath the sky
All things just die and pass away

All is strange- it's too much for the mind
We'll keep spinning in the sky
Fill your senses, live it hard now
Like you're running out of time
Running out of time

All is strange- it's too much for the mind
Wheel keep spinning in the sky
Fill your senses, live it hard now
Like you're running out of time
Running out of time
Track Name: River Valley Leper Colony
I know you plan to take me over
And I fear as though you've won your game
Just don't fall in love with me
Don't even let your friends know my name

And I'll put my arms up around you
When you're bleedin' and you've come unglued
You said that you've been here before
And I didn't mean to take you there

And if we could brush ourselves off
Would we like what all was underneath
Would we find a way to cover up crown of thorns
Wear it like a wreath

And I can't count up all the kids
Hung up on crosses that they didn't make
Was it you and I
Or did they climb up and say, 'I'm here to stay'

Can I be understood playin' my songs
Or am I too damn strange
You landed plastered on my porch
And I was telling you you've got to change

And you can pillage what I am if it helps you get the things you need
Could call it all how it is
You said, 'rape me'
I say, 'if it lives it bleeds.'

And I wish I drowned in the river
When I stumbled in
I reckon just a part of me did
Now it's missing I can't get it back

I've been grinding my teeth in my sleep
And you've been wide awake
Let's get up smoke a cigarette
It's six AM- tell the sun to come up

And when the sun is comin' up
I leave my number and I walk away
Give it time and I'll get well
I just need a few more sober days

I saw myself last night in a dream
And it's not that great
I really wanna die sometimes
Don't understand the force that's stopping me

And I'd like to take back all the shit I've done
But it's too damn late
Sit and drink my jar of fire
Feel my consciousness dissipate
