Track Name: Grassfire by the Henhouse
In the young morning was born a young man Into the fog he fearlessly ran Past the cool graveyard we walked hand in hand Instead of just smiling he forced out a laugh There’s a grassfire by the henhouse Apart from the man nobody stands On top of the candle a flame does its dance In case of a fire just break the glass Next to my baby who is that man? There’s a grassfire by the henhouse (piano break) Instead of just smiling I forced out a laugh In spite of the smell he drank the whole glass There’s a grassfire by the henhouse There’s a grassfire by the henhouse
Track Name: Dowdy for Me
Beyond the horizon lies the unknown Near the tracks he spins out of control Outside these doors it’s twenty below Over my head you spewed out your jokes Now you know Here’s your chance to be Dowdy for me Prior to Sunday I’d never seen snow Because of your woolgathering I’m alone Inside the cushion I’ve hidden a phone Off the ledge he dove Now you know Here’s your chance to be Dowdy for me
Track Name: I've Had Nothing to Drink
Along with my nightmares I’ve had some good dreams Following my prayers I drift off to sleep Unlike my father I’m helpless and weak Unlike his father I take time to think Under the stars I’m not worth a thing Other than vodka I’ve had nothing to drink Behind the bushes she planted a tree To her delight he knelt at her feet Unlike my father I’m helpless and weak Unlike his father I take time to think Up north they do things differently Other than vodka I’ve had nothing to drink
Track Name: Imbed the Winning Tippler
About this I’m not so sure Throughout the day I smile at her Except for the girls we’re all getting worms Imbed the winning tippler Imbed the winning tippler Among us there’s a liar Down the hill you’ll find all the girls Upon further review the call is reversed Imbed the winning tippler Imbed the winning tippler (break) In between breaths I listened for her Imbed the winning tippler Imbed the winning tippler
Track Name: The Whittlings of Nitro
From the fog came a welcome sight Including interest she owes me her life Goodnight, turn on the lights After death we’ll reunite Getting buried alone Getting buried with the whittlings of nitro alone Bury bottles alone Getting little with the whittlings of nitro alone From the fog came a welcome sight At the bottom there’s nothing to do but fight Without speaking a word we kissed goodnight After death we’ll reunite Bury bottles alone Getting little with the whittlings of nitro alone Getting buried alone Getting buried with the whittlings of nitro alone Getting buried alone Getting little with the whittlings of nitro alone Bury bottles alone Getting buried with the whittlings of nitro alone
Track Name: Clot Serenade
Before I begin let me plan out the day Visualize the parade Underneath blankets I’m warm and I’m safe from the clot serenade Despite her reputation he asked her out on a date to the sun or to the moon Beside his date I sit and wait I’ll make my move very soon (break) Like all the great poets I save it all for the page and I never seem to age
Track Name: Dull Earthlight
Above the clouds a mystery hides Through ups and downs you’re here by my side For your love I take it in stride Circa 1720 we had arrived About it all, he lied Of cancer, he died By dull earthlight I see his face Tighten my eyes but he’s stuck in place An image I can-not erase Circa 1810 we left no trace About it all, he lied Of cancer, he died
Track Name: We Save All
Didn’t offend me hardly a start Given the hour we should part Close to the finish I let down my guard remaining religious is hard Heaven and earth and Summer and fall We save all We save all Along the curb is a line of cars In front of us is ours Heaven and earth and Summer and fall We save all We save all
Track Name: Here at Griper
Here at griper there’s ways to come and there’s always a ways to go Here at griper it’s obvious that we’re often putting on a show Below zero I see my breath Within minutes I’m up out of bed Around nine it’s off with their heads Onto the next we move onto the next… Here at griper I speak my piece whenever I am called upon Here at griper hold your peace forever as the rivers run
Track Name: Caterpillar Tracks (We’re All Here Now)
Live by the axe Caterpillar tracks Shocked and amused by love Desert a friend Relive the end Nothing like you dream of Beneath the house lies a burial ground Thanks to our parents we’re all here now I’ve got to win Throw away all sin Steer my ship right toward the light Straighten up my slacks Caterpillar tracks Do every day what is right Besides my breathing I don’t make a sound Thanks to our parents we’re all here now (break) I smile and fade Give what I gave I give and give til I got no more Last thing to give I’ll show you to live Show you what this is all for Beneath the house lies a burial ground Thanks to our parents we’re all here now Besides my breathing I don’t make a sound Thanks to our parents we’re all here now we’re all here now
Track Name: She Won’t Ever Be Lonely
Across the table we see whom we trust With that on my mind I rose with the sun And she won’t ever be lonely She’ll know just what to do Yeah she won’t ever be lonely without you Against his wishes she told her mom According to scripture they were created by god And she won’t ever be lonely She’ll know just what to do Yeah she won’t ever be lonely without you And she won’t ever be lonely She’ll know just what to do Yeah she won’t ever be lonely without you Across the table she sees whom not to trust As a rule she tries not to think too much And she won’t ever be lonely She’ll know just what to do Yeah she won’t ever be lonely without you And she won’t ever be lonely She’ll know just what to do Yeah she won’t ever be lonely without you
Track Name: Four in the Room
On the counter was a pile of pills During the day we work to pay all the bills By foot we arrived not a moment too soon Counting the victim there were four in the room
