1See That My Grave Is Kept Clean

Lyrics

There's just one kind favor I'll ask of you (3X)
you see that my grave is kept clean

there's two white horses following me (3X)
and they're waiting on my dying ground

did you ever hear that coughing sound (3)
means another poor boy is underground

and did you ever hear that churchbell toll (3X)
means another poor boy is dead and gone

when my heart stop beating, my hands turn cold (3X)
turn cold, cold, cold
my heart stop beating, my hands turn cold (3X)
now I believe what the bible told

There's just one last favor I'll ask of you (3X)
you see that my grave is kept clean (repeat x times)

2Still Holding On To You

Lyrics

Yeah
it's been written in stone
you're gone and you're not coming home
but I know that it's true
and there's really not a lot I can do
but baby
I'm still holding on to you
I'm still holding on to you

Wow yeah
you know what people say
they say the man gives a little
and then he takes it away
but I know that it's true
and there's really not a lot I can do
but baby
I'm still holding on to you
I'm still holding on to you
yeah I'm still holding on
(guitar)

I said last night
I dreamed they came for my soul
yeah the room was hot
and her skin was cold
Oh no no no
and I heard them called my name

I'll still be waiting for you
still holding on to you
oh carry me down that row
still holding on to you
down where the angels won't go
still holding on to you
I'll still be waiting for you
still holding on to you
oh carry me down that row
still holding on to you
down where the angels won't go
still holding on to you

3Forest For The Trees

Lyrics

Let me tell you about a place that I've been before
it lies behind that old locked door
it looks like a page out of paradise
but only half as good at twice the price

And I laugh at what we've become
and I smile at the way things have gone
trying to lift the man up from his knees
trying to find the forest for the trees
the forest for the trees

Let me tell you about a friend that I once knew
I believe he lived next door to you
he held it tight inside his shell
and then one day the axe just fell

Let me tell you about another time
about the sweetest spot in its early prime
if the memory is all you lack
just open your eyes cause you can never go back.

4Until Lately

Lyrics

In my area there is a chain of being
and the most of the attentions is paid to lower things
Around here the rule is good faith
you choose your friends carefully and you're safe.
Well it's just goes to show
how wrong you can be
They say he was in a good position
a man of pride and ambition.
In this world there is one equation
the harder you work, the better is your station
Well tonight on the news I heard them say:
the man in the plaza had a resume.

5Thats What You Always Say

Lyrics

I'd tell you that we've been through this
I know I've told you that before
I'd try to find out where we miss
but it gets to be such a chore
Ever since that time I told you it's so
Something gets my mind and I don't let go
and then the stories and words
they're here and gone
cause that's what you always say
I'd try to sit and talk with you
but you know moods change all the time
I'd try to wait a week or two
but by then I'd probably changed my mind.

6When You Smile

Lyrics

I dreamed last night I was born a hundred years ago
But when I woke up I was lost with only one place to go
When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two

It's not fair to put you against all of the years behind me
But history kind of pales when you and you are aligned

When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two
And it seems like the end of the world
When you smile

Well there's never been a man who's been anymore than bones in sack
But it doesn't take much to hold the possibilities back

When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two
And it seems like the end of the world
When you smile

When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two
And it seems like the end of the world
Yes, it seems like the end of the world
Yes, it seems like the end of the world
When you smile
When you smile
When you smile
When you smile

7Burn

Lyrics

Someone set fire to the field last night
Turned himself in this morning
No, I don't think you knew him
But that's not the point

The cops asked why he'd done it
As they fastened up the cuffs.
He looked at what he'd done and said,
"Guess I just don't know.
I just don't know."

But you can feel it in your heart
Feel it in your soul
Feel it go around until you lose control
And there's just a few things
That can't be told
Don't you feel it burn?

There was this friend that you and I had
There were a few things that he believed in
And then one by one he found some flaws
And now he's not so sure
No, he's not that sure.

I woke up alone this morning
And I looked around the room
And some day there's gonna be hell to pay
I know.
Yeah. I know

1Merrittville

Lyrics

Matthew with the pug nose
Caught me with his sister in the wheatfield
Got a couple buddies
Tied me up and threw me in his Oldsmobile
I said "Matthew are you crazy?"
As he started closing in for the kill
Matthew slowed the Olds to 10
Left me here to die in Merrittville

There's a game they play in the summertime
There's a game they play when it's hot outside
And I wonder why
They left me here in Merrittville

Sally with the narrow hips
Cut the rope and said that she could clear my head
She led me to the dirt path
All the way back to her daddy's shed
I said, "Sally who'd believe
That we'd have to come so far for a thrill."
Sally let me go that night
Weak, tired and spent in Merrittville

William with the holy book
Stopped me as I stumbled down the road today
He said "Get on your knees, boy.
It's time you learned the right way to pray"
I said "William, I had no idea
That the lord had such a will
William drove his point across
And left me here to burn in Merrittville

2The Days Of Wine And Roses

Lyrics

The word from outside
and she is on the ledge again
drawing a card
and threatening everything
I'm here wandering
where I got in
Everybody says I don't care
but I'm just trying to remember
the days of wine and roses
The priest from the parish
is looking for persuasion
the man with the notepad
wants verification
somebody says this was my creation
Her mother says it's your fault
you never looked after her
Her father arranging to
get back the furniture
I'm here wandering
what the reasons were.

3The Medicine Show

Lyrics

I've got a Page One story buried in my yard
I've got a troubled mind
I'm going down to the medicine show

If I've got to choose between doing trouble
And doing time
I'm going down to the medicine show

I've got a one way ticket on the 8:06
To the outskirts of town
I'm going down to the medicine show

And I'll say, "hey conductor
Now dontcha stop until you hear that gypsy sound
I'm going down to the medicine show

But I know that it's hard to be a decent man
When you stop finding reasons for everything
But tonight I'll find some answers
Down at the medicine show

I'm gonna find me that gypsy girl
That likes to dance and cry
When I go down to the medicine show

And we're gonna lay that burden down
Beneath that lonesome gypsy sky
When I go down to the medicine show

4Halloween

Lyrics

There is a place you might wanna go
it's right up my street
you might look and see the light shining
someone you might like to meet
He said "let's go for a ride"
says it all the time
you know you got a lot to live for
and you're gonna be mine
You shouldn't believe the things you reed in papers
they can't come true
I don't believe the things that you see on TV
they'll never happen to you
2 steps forward
don't say I didn't warn you
2 steps forward
I didn't warn you.

5Boston

Lyrics

Come back to Boston as soon as you can
The whole thing ain't gone down according to the plan
Morning when I wake up I don't like what I see
And late at night my dreams are terrifying me

Well, I was walking by the river in the early morning dew
Singing out lines from "Cypress Avenue"
I wonder where he stood when it all came down
Come back to Boston before I hit the ground

And the winners stand confused
They don't want to be misused
And the losers that came before
Say "I don't want to be here anymore."

Well, I was standing on the back porch
Looking at the books: poets, politicians, beauty queens and crooks
I wonder where they stood when the inspiration came
Come back to Boston before I jump the train

Come back to Boston or I'll meet you halfway
Somewhere by the middle of the interstate
We can take it on down to some cold, deserted lake
And come back to Boston before we make the same mistake

6John Coltrane Stereo Blues

Lyrics

Oh keep your hands on the shades baby
no one gonna care
when the moon goes dead
oh I might have said something sometime
but I don't care what I might have said
we're gonna take it
move it
sand it down
we're gonna send it back from where it came
oh yeah yeah
gonna be all right
it's gonna be all right
I feel it, want it, know it
yeah I say yeah yeah yeah
it's gonna be all right
(guitar)

I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I got some fine wine in the freezer mama
I know what you like
I gonna take it, turn it, set it loose
we gonna learn about love on a three ply rug
hah
Gonna be all right
It's gonna be all right
I feel it
gonna be all right
(guitars,guitars,guitars)

Don't tell me anymore bout the
civilized world baby
it's just you and me
Oh what do I gotta do to show you
the way that it's gonna be
Gonna take it, move it, [sand] it down
gonna send it back to burn in flame
gonna be all right
it's gonna be all right
yeah
shhh it's gonna be all right
oh yeah yeah yeah all right

I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I got some fine wine in the freezer mama
I know what you like
I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I got some fine wine in the freezer mama
I know what you like
I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I said a man works hard all day
he can do what he wants to
At night
come on, come on...
(hopefully crowd goes wild here)

she said Hold me tight
I don't think that's what you want
I don't think that's what you want
She said Hold me tight
I don't think that's what you want
Don't think that's what you want
Hold me tight, hold me tight
hold me tight, hold me tight
Gonna be all right
