Track Name: Meet Me There
well i caught a train, didn't know where it was going, but i didn't really care
as long as it was far from here
well you caught me railing dope through a $5 bill, and a churchman told me i was going to hell, will you meet me there?
will you meet me where no good man goes, will you drink with me to wretchedness & woe, will you meet me there?
i sold my satisfaction for a sweet sounding song and since i was born i been moving on
homeward bound, but you know i'm headed down
will you meet me where no good man goes, will you drink with me to wretchedness & woe, will you meet me there?
will you save me a seat at the devil's right hand will we talk of how we once were respectable men, oh will you meet me there?
Track Name: I Am Always Coming Home
i've been riding trains that have no station, and i've been leaving everything i know behind
i have known a life of meager rations and i have known the desperate fear of losing my mind
but i am always coming home, it's just a place that i have not yet know
and i hope i remember it when i get there
well i have abused my only body, and i have little faith left in my soul
and all my hope lies in tomorrow, when all my time will be spent making this world a better world
but i am always coming home, it's just a place that i have not yet know
but i hope i remember it when i get there
Track Name: Bury Me
oh bury me, i want to die
with a ring on my finger and the sun in my eyes
i swear i ain't sad, oh lord i'm just tired
of dragging 'round this suitcase full of hard times and fire
i don't trust myself & i don't trust you,
we're just lying to each other & that just won't do
there's something wrong, i must be cursed,
'cause i'm trying to get better, but i only get worse
when the cold nights come, full of whiskey & somebody trying to take me home
so fill up my cup & i'll try not to cry,
oh fill up my cup & maybe i'll get by
when the cold nights come i'm over and done with going out, i'm staying home
Track Name: We Will Do Great Things
you've been having dreams of isolation and lord knows, we've all ben changing fast but i still love you forever, and we will do great things together or apart, though i know it feels like we are wild animals, born with broken bones and i don't know what to do any more than you, oh i don't know what to do
and it is important to get drunk, fuck everything up and it is important to let everyone down sometimes so that you can realize just how much they mean to you, & it is important to know
that we will do great things, together or apart, though i know it feels like we weren't made for this world, like we should never have been born
but i am glad that we were born
Track Name: Feel Better
well isn't it nice, today we get to decide who we're going to be for the rest of our lives, or at least for a little while. well i'm trading this bag of gold for sticks and stones, something with which i can build myself a home
'cause my time is worth more than money could afford & my spirit is pure & i am honest & i am sure that the comfort of someone's love is all you need
and i want to take you by the hand and show you that the world really ain't that bad and i am so sorry that you are so sad
and i know that you've been hurt, but i also know that it is worth it & i know i need to keep you around
so if i promise to love you forever, will you promise that you will feel better? will you promise me? i just want you to be okay.
Track Name: Cut The Thread
cut the thread at the frayed end
drink from the river be born again
and though i try i can't remember what i said
or how i came to be here

i don't want to die
i just want to sleep for a thousand nights more
and we are asleep in the back of my car
but i'm sure i'll wake by tomorrow

My mind has been softened
poison sold as medicine
the untimely death of everything
the sedative of love

i can't feel
anything now
i felt too much once and it all leaked out
and i wish i could cry
but i got nothing to cry about

time is creeping up on me
i can't be afraid
to sing it loud be it the truth or a lie
i can't be afraid to die

we might all die before day ends
so tell everybody you know that you love them
i just hope i live to know another morning
Track Name: What It Is
man this place is fucked
seems like everyone i know and loved is dead by rope, or dying from junk. as if we're not all dying fast enough
well i'm not quite sure what the problem is but i don't think it's us, i think it's the system and i hope, i hope that in the end i had a reason to keep breathing, no, to keep fighting for air
well i'm not quite sure what the problem is but i don't think it's us, i think it's the system and i know, i know that we ain't seen the worst of it yet but if any one of us just forgives or forgets what they done to us then they've won, they've won
well i'm not quite sure what the problem is...
