Fiery Crash 05:00
Fiery Crash You, look if you want to - i've got nothing here to hide from you inside you is the whole world though you may not understand it's true. And if there was a fiery crash helplessly watching it all burn it will all be gone in a flash nothing survives but these words these words. See all that you make me and all the wreckage you will find in me inside me is a future and if it ever does arrive, we’ll see Take what you have to whatever money just can’t buy for you Outside there is a whole world I can feel it when we speak it’s true And if there was a fiery crash helplessly watching it all burn it will all be gone in a flash nothing survives but these words these words. See all that you make me…

Prentiss’ Song You’re in my sun you’re in my moon You’re in my coffee in my spoon You’re in my walk in my fog in my afternoon jog. You are in my car and in the far reaches the farthest star My telephone, this microphone You’re in everything I own. You’re in my arms and legs in the daze and haze of the crazy flights of alcohol fueled Friday nights You are in all my Georgian days you’re in all of my Southern ways. You give me sight I give you sound a left and right foot we are bound I’ll never mind the pain or the rain or a pound or two that I might gain. I’ll never mind the cold or the heat or the noise of the street In the middle of that New York City night. I’ll never mind the time I spent waiting in line. Or the fine for speeding or time I cheated and I’ll never mind a broken heart again. So, never mind my selfish heart or my vain restart like a map of New Orleans under water under fire in the Quarter of your dreams and desires and in The young fresh eyes you designed that will carry you Carry you through your days and your nights I’ll carry you too in my fight to make things right. To make it alright. I’ll make it alright. We’ll make it alright. You’re in my dreams and in the seams and all the In betweens the photo files in all the miles And years that we’ve crossed and we lost and found again.

Trouble 04:50
TROUBLE I first met trouble - When you showed me the light I came out of the cold darkness - You shined so bright I saw tomorrow glowing The words you said were knowing All your pretty teeth were showing Yeah, you did it just right… That was when – all this trouble began Mistakes are made and that’s living - I leave mine far behind You gotta open your eyes – he said you’ve been walking around blind I stepped with trepidation And I broke my hesitation And soon I felt those good vibrations That led me down the darker road… This was when – I got in trouble once again CHORUS: Now I’m doing my time It’s so plain to see Paying for this crime I’ll pay for eternity Doesn’t matter how I plea Cuz this trouble’s not you - This trouble is me I follow this trouble - I watch it watching me I think “the more I know about this trouble - The better prepared I’ll be” Your sweetness did deceive me I’m guilty please believe me You gotta know this aint easy Suddenly it all came clear… This was when – I knew it would never end. Trouble. Trouble.

I Faded Out 03:32
I faded out The glass was painted so thin And the fortunes fill the hands of only the special blowing in the wind. Leaving us to fend. An image on my wall frozen there in fear A light may shine but not seen now It’s pretty dark in here It’s pretty dark in here. No glorious thunderous fire. Or waving victorious flags No bbq’s or stories passed down for our children’s muse for our children’s children’s muse There’s no real defeat in a languid century lie Where the envious kill and curl their watering mouths and turn into a smile though empty and hollow disguised. No glorious thunderous fire. Or waving victorious flags No bbq’s or stories passed down for our children’s muse for our children’s children’s muse

Wantings for Sinners it's not for me to say how the stars align in birth how long we get to stay here standing on the earth. wanting is only a foolish desire that ends most unhappily take what your given without any fuss and you're free It's not a lot to ask but asking is a sin of it's own a darkness from my past i buried a long time ago. nothings forever the tables do turn you're just out of reach tell me when will i learn wanting’s for sinners and sinning i do but all that i long for is wrapped up in… I prayed for it - i lied for it - i payed for it - and i cried for it i carried it - i savored it - i buried it. i did. It's not for me to see how the road ahead will wind how much i will receive is a measurement not well defined Begging or pleading will get you nowhere but break your heart in two to love and to lose is a saying from only a fool the time that falls away is a love forever lost A price so small to pay and we pay the ultimate cost. nothings forever the tables do turn you're just out of reach tell me when will i learn wanting’s for sinners and sinning i do but all that i long for is wrapped up in… you I prayed for it - i lied for it - i payed for it - and i died for it i carried it - i favored it - i buried it. i did.

Throwing sticks into the waves they disappear into the White, turning water carried down to where my biggest fears abound Lay waiting Quiet, Still On the rocky beach of Avalon. To come down, down, down till I can’t feel the ground Float among the garibaldi basking in the sun At least I’m safe up here for now On the rocky beach of Avalon. The question’s never answered the truth is never told will my angel follow me down to the sonic wells of water sounds and giant swells of waves that crash along the rocky beach of Avalon Waves of sound follow me down Waves of sound follow me around It’s the end of the world My eyes are on the little girl who puts her toe into the shallow surf and then goes in And there’s her friend And there are no tears, as they disappear below the rocky beach of Avalon. Waves of sound follow me down Waves of sound follow me around down down down till I cannot see or reach the ground your arms around me like a woven rope I’m swingin’ on The waves of sound Scatter all around as we throw the rocks into the sea……… of Avalon

Meet me on the wall – don’t say words or write letters to the others We’ll walk into the falls and watch the fire burn Watch the fire burn Sirens fill the distance and skipping our stones all breaking the silence that only deep water knows, we watch the fire burn watch the fire burn Shadows fall underneath the water – catch the flashing lights falling from the sky If the rapture comes tonight – you and I will dance through the fire We’ll burn up the night I’ll wear your favorite shoes and the dress from your mother Red of silk and fire – wait for lightning strikes - we’ll burn up the night. We’ll decorate the moon with candles and a song with cigarettes we’ll lie beneath our covered eyes we’ll feel the fire burn we’ll feel the fire Shadows fall underneath the water – catch the flashing lights falling from the sky If the rapture comes tonight – you and I will dance into the fire We’ll burn up the night
