Track Name: Crickets & Frogs
crickets & frogs

on the first day we came
down to the lake it rained
and on the second day it cleared
so we all sang these old songs
to an orchestra of crickets & frogs

on the september day
down at the wake we laid
with all the wheel and bones
the wheels and bones
when we all prayed for your loss
the fallen ones the fallen one
god.

my intentions are strong
but my ambition is quite low
on the way on the way home
my intentions are wrong
but i'll build you a new home
on the way on the way
home.
Track Name: The Odyssey
the odyssey

i'd spit out my mouth if i could
i'd run my lips into the woods
make them a home out of sticks and stones
lock the latch so they can never come home

turn around turn around and face me
or you'll never see the next day
turn around look away, look away

turn around turn around and face me
or you'll never see the next day
turn around and look away from
the blue sirens eyes

she'll have her crazy days
"let me out, let me go"
i have myself to blame
"let her out, let her go"
Track Name: Anna Mae (The Civil War)
anna mae (the civil war)

dear anna mae
we are on the front lines
dear anna mae

said
"i'm going to beat them,
then i'm going to see you"
said
"we're going to kill them,
for our freedom"

freedom

dear anna mae
we are on the good side
dear anna mae
please don't worry about me

Track Name: The Wisher
the wisher

i wish i was oblivious
to everything i know
maybe then i would go outside

i wish you were not oblivious
to all around you
maybe then you would stay inside

but i know that's not right
and i know you'll be ok, fine, alright
i just have trouble letting go

i wish we would lie
i wish would fight
i wish we had time
i wish we could spend all night
i wish we could be
i wish we could be all of these things
truthfully

but i know that's not right
and i know you'll be alright
trouble letting go
Track Name: Cabin In The Woods
cabin in the woods

i'll never build that
cabin in the woods
i'll never kill a deer
and i'll never leave here

picture me off the rail
picture me off the rail
'cause i can't face today
picture me off the rails
slowly chugging away

i'll never be
a trapper in the woods
and i'll never feel the cold
like i know i should

no more warnings
no foreboding
the way that i wanted to
the way that i wanted to
the way that i the way that i
the way that i the way that i want

the fish always the fish always
come the way i come today
i know you fade, i know you well, i know
but i know i can't stay

ragazza
i love the way you are

save it for a bad bad day
show me the way
show me the way
show me today

i can feel the coldness in your face
i can feel two birds drenched in the rain
