Track Name: Shifting Ground
I've been staring at the sun
licking at the beans
in the light they tell me what I want
oh deceitful dreams

Well you say you got a job
a job shifting ground
you wrote home to your mamma and your papa kid, well
to me you're just a clown

did you ever know? did you sell your soul?

So said someone to the one he held
between finger and a thumb
"I bought you now I own you kid
from me you cannot run"

Well you say you got a job
a job shifting ground
you wrote home to your mamma and your papa kid, well
to me you're just a clown

did you ever know? did you sell your soul?

Soul.
Track Name: Caught Again
And you're caught again in your expectations
of what should be pure and simply
well you look around, and everybody is just so damn loud
they think the stage that they walk on was meant to be walked on
by nobody else
except themselves

Its been news to you, news that you can hardly believe
that someone out there can explain away your dreams
well you ain't alone
just come on back home
forget the stage that you walk on and go ahead and walk on an open road
let loose your soul

and you're wasted and settled down
and you're lost in a single parking lot town
and your statue is buried deep beneath what you thought was already found
and you listen to that country sound
its calling you out
left no doubt

And you're caught again in your expectations
of what should be pure and simply
so you look around
everybody's just so damn proud
of that stage they walk on
identical to talk on
and nothing's left except yourself
Track Name: The Deeper Home
There's a man, there's a ghost, there's a big black monster
wants to put us in our graves, wants to make us all pay
for what we've done
take away all that we have won
there's a hole in the earth, there's a big dark chasm
and we're all falling in and the light is getting dim
so bring your torches children, come on and light your candles children

Cause I need you to see the way this could be
and I need you to be closer to me

There's a light in your heart that shines through your eyes
keeps the monsters away, keeps our fears at bay
so we can sleep at night inside the canyon deep and quiet
nothing can touch us now where we've landed
at the bottom of the world, in the city of gold
where rivers flow like blood, and nobody knows a thing about 'not enough'

They came from the sky to the distant shore
lived up in the mountains twenty years or more
then down to the river from the mountain tops
and up to the sky where the current stops
Track Name: Catalina
Oh wanton traveler, help me break free of this town
the world is your dance floor
lift me up when I'm sittin' around

So get up and go
follow your nose
a little red engine told me so
when I was young

Oh Catalina, its in you I wish to hide
Gothic towers approach me
they don't know I'm still a child
and through my window you can see my tent of sheets
warm lights waltz upon the page
this city's turned into an anthill
is it time I moved away?

So I made love to the city
broke my heart on hot white lights
got a job in the dust bowl
a chest of coal almost took my life
Oh wanton traveler, let me know of what you find
Oh Catalina, make me yours and I'll make you mine

Get up and go, follow your nose
a little red engine told me so
Track Name: Flickering Glass
I awoke and felt your presence near me
what a joke, did I really think you could hear me?
I'm moving past the fake sunshine that they thought would last
And I'm moving home, but they tell me
that age has already past.

Taking a walk to try and remember my fate
looking back, it seems I notice things a little too late
Either way I know you'll have to fade away
After the deluge I know I have to stay far away

The company passed into the west
the flickering glass reminding us that nothing can last.

Taking a ride inside a spaceship in the sky
God only knows, I've been wanting to die
Either way I die each time I hear you say
We just fade away beneath the ocean, the ocean waves

The company passed into the west
The Flickering Glass reminding us that nothing can last
Track Name: Fall Company Drag
Was it just the other day banging heads on my phone?
Ignored some calls, felt like being alone
I wish I'd known I'd be this way
wanna get back to the start before I changed

Was driving my car, drove it right off the road
the edge of a cliff, I thought I'd like to unload
I wish I'd known I'd be this way
wanna get back to the start before I changed
Track Name: Coming Home To Newt
I faded away like a setting sun
don't bring up my cancer as you have your fun
I wish I was younger
younger than you

Still I'm coming home. Coming home to you
no matter what you do
you search for someone new

you raised your glass at the beach
the cat's wine cover the porch's creek
I wish you would tell me something that is true

Still I'm coming home. Coming home to you
no matter what you do
you search for someone new

I wish I was pretty like all those pearls you gave to younger girls
and I was happy when you were serene
and I promise not to make a scene
at the party

You slept as the preachers preached
your heart is hard as the core of a peach
no one will be there to hear your breath stop in your sleep

Still I'm coming home. Coming home to you
no matter what I do
I'm still in love with you
