Track Name: Huck Finn
will i find you
in the cold
biting winter
all alone

all is naked
but the pines
they may tell me
where you hide

and somedays i come to find
that the answers to my mind
drift away with the snow
so it goes

will i find you
in the heat
on the pavement
in bare feet

as the pleasure
turns to pain
i look for remnants
of the rain

and one day i'll come to find
that the thing i call my mind
will float away like a steam
as if a dream

will i find you in the dark of night
will i find you in that white hot light
will i find you in the cold blue smoke
will i find you at the butt of a joke

will i find you
in the haze
of a memory
far away

as i reach out
to touch your face
i go right through you
and awake

and one day i'll come to find
that the one who's gone to hide
always has and never will
that is until
until
Track Name: Stasis
a celebration
or conflagration
the light i can't seem to see

to riends and relations
my reputation:
good luck making sense of me

i wish i knew what
i knew what to wish for

how 'bout a reason
to peel myself off the floor

i curse the sun the stars the moon and the sea
woe is me

my mind moves fast
it never lasts
i exist in brevity

i want what's real
that's how i feel
and now i'm busting at the seams

and on a good day
you know i brag i beat i boast

and i believe that
i am a greater man than most

i curse the sun the stars the moon and the sea
woe is me

i'll get along
write a song
and now i'm on my merry way

but you can bet
my sun will set
and i'll repeat this mystery

all i am doing
is doing it again

over and over
on the never ending bend

i curse the sun the stars the moon and the sea
woe is me
Track Name: Solitude
if i didn't have to work in this place
well i wouldn't have to that smiling face

i see it's a lie, i see it's no good
the game i don't play but know i should

you keep it locked up and you keep it away
confront it when wiser on some later day

solitude
there is no other lover
you'll carry me out of this world

you toil you wait and waste all your time
while the eyes in the mirror say you're losing your mind

they give you an answer you give them a nod
then leave to go worship bottle or god

tell me the words tell me again
that i'm doing exactly what i should my man

solitude
there is no other lover
you'll carry me out of this world

here comes my angel, my savior, my muse
to whisper the words of my desperate tune

i like when you smile but i love when you laugh
won't you walk a bit longer down this path

but soon i'll awake and meet morning again
the last of my steady companionable friends

solitude
there is no other lover
you'll carry me out of this world
Track Name: No Good Thief
hey baby have you heard the news
i'm in love you
it's true

i feel so good
good god
i'm starting to shake

i will kiss your hand
and you will laugh
and then you'll know

how truly low low low
i can go

ooo wee
how about i take you to the movies
or a show
i don't beg
i don't borrow
i just steal

now here's a joke
i'm broke
i'm afraid i don't have any dough

the truth is always funniest
you know

but i do respect
your intellect
as you keep me on my toes

and they're gonna tap tap tap
till you shake your hips

ooo wee
how about i take you to the movies or a show
i don't beg
i don't borrow
i just steal

i will love you until i love you no more
it's true
i'm sorry but that's the way it's gotta be

one day i won't
feel for you as strongly
as i do now

but you're lucky
cause that's the day
that i die

ooo wee
how about i take you to the movies or a show
i don't beg
i don't borrow
i just steal
Track Name: Faith
i have wondered out
and wandered in
these rabbit holes

deep through the pin
i'm looking in
it unfolds

i just close my eyes
and keep on through
all is true

shake all the hands
of all the men
i used to be

they whisper on
oh carry on
tired son

faith

now i have kept my life
on the edge
of reason

close to all thought
yet i could not
receive it

known but not revealed
and not until
you hear it

so i have washed my feet
and gone complete
in the river

faith

i have reached the end
oh the end
the glorious end

and i
will touch the face of god

faith
faith
