Track Name: Bones
oh it flows and it flows. covers up the carpet.
and you know and you know, just where it started.
and you stumble and stumble, through the darkness.
but don't you forget me then.

made a face, that could scare anyone off.
no you're not, not you're not, you're not mad enough
but if you feel it just for one day, shout across the water and the snow
to get you where you wanna go.

and i won't take my time. to get you off my mind.
and it don't, no it don't work as well as it should.
as well as i thought it would,
just yesterday.

oh get in my bones. get in my bones. hey
i caught your cold. caught your cold, take it take it back.
oh on your own, you wouldn't be caught dead.
but then,
whoa but then.
oh on your own. on your own.
you wouldn't be caught. you wouldn't be caught.
dead, dead, dead, dead.

and i won't take my time. to get you off my mind.
and it don't, no it don't work as well as it should.
get me to hollywood, get me to wait.
the flames lick the burning wood,
and we're covered away.

and i won't take my time. to get you off my mind.
and it don't, no it don't work as well as it should.
as well as i thought it would,
just yesterday.
if we had bones we could. meet again.
Track Name: Smokestacks
smokestacks on horizons like cigarettes
lines that dot the street, this emptiness
looking into a lion's mouth i forgot to take a breath.

let's build a tree-fort and hide away,
will you come? i'll wait.
super lovin' can't ignore,
whistling straights of insecure.

flying in the field just like when we were young,
burning up, the ashes falling on my tongue,
reminds me of a movie but I've already forgotten which one.

sounds that light your life,
caress the soul like a knife,
feel them darling. feel them touch your body,
and kill your strife.

with a muffled mind, as it's blasted apart.
with wings of steel as destruction starts.
the night is so nice right before it,
really really really gets dark.

sounds that light your life,
caress the soul like a knife.
feel them darling. feel them touch your body,
and kill your strife.

let's build a tree-fort and hide away,
will you come? i'll wait.
super lovin' can't ignore,
whistling straights of insecure.
Track Name: Those Were the Days
back along the road again. i swear, we've been here before.
on the side at the truckstop getting gas, you said,
"i'm not so sure."
in the back, where the firewood is. that's where you stole my heart.
no matter how much you say that you can't.
you could carry me far.

we had such little hands and such little legs.
oh how, those were the days.
you wash em' off and you wash em' again.
oh how, those were the days.
Track Name: Hop This Train
got up today she's a featherweight,
a couple drinks and a headache,
oh, if you wanna hop this train with me.

if hoppin' trains gonna get you there,
my arms and legs sure are shakin',
but your eyes they sure ain't faking it.

just up on past where the road bends,
we'll hop all on and off again,
take care just don't be careless.

and if you want to take my hand,
i'll show you where the highway ends,
and you'll wanna hop this train again.

oh I walk on by, oh I walk on by oh, I walk on by oh,
i walk on and this train is a comin' around.

splintery wood where you rest your head,
impossible lakes where the heron lands,
a thousand hours in the baking sand.

oh how they're speckled and they're spotted,
we'll bust ourselves 'till we've caught it,
shake well babe, and hop this.

oh I walk on by, oh I walk on by oh, I walk on by oh,
i walk on and this train is a comin' around.
