Track Name: Restless Lady
She'd never left Oklahoma
never gone much farther than a pair of shoes could go
Now she found herself by the side of the road
climbing into a dusty rustbucket

Take me daddy to another place
I've had myself a little fall from grace
If you'd be so kind as to keep your hands to yourself
I think you could get me where I need to go

Thought she'd stay in New Mexico
but it wasn't her kind of place it seemed
Her thumb hooked a pair of shiny new fins
She charmed her way into that classy ride

Take me momma to another place
I've had myself a little fall from grace
If you'd be so kind as to keep your eyes to yourself
I think you could get me where I need to go

Sunny California at last
it was the place made of salt and sand and light
There was no jingle jangle in her pocket
but she was home she was home

she said-
I think that I have found the place
to break my little fall from grace
Fortune she has smiled on me
and she has got me where I needed to go
Track Name: Witch
There’s no line I cannot cross
By simply erasing it
I take up magic implements
And lock you in this body to make you free

Can you count the gold
Can you count the jewels to trade
For the face that cures forgetting
Without it you’ll be painting pictures night and day
To convince them you’re not already dead
Track Name: Door #1
Always moving
Blooming bruises
Don’t stop
shadows are showing through
Don’t let the quiet find you
Something is breaking audibly

There’s only one door
There’s only one key to make it move
Behind it there’s only you

Frozen branches
Inside your chest

There’s only one door
There’s only one key to make it move
Behind it there’s only you
Track Name: Apologetic
I find it hardest now to say
the things I most need to tell you
They’re eating at the walls
like acid like time

There isn’t much to know
just the giant question mark
that’s fallen through the ceiling
-maybe you didn’t notice?

I’m sorry
always sorry

I can only hide the mess so long
under the bed I failed to make today
There’s only so much room to spare
for this kind of elephant

I’m sorry
always sorry
Track Name: Curtain Call
Is this it
Is this it
Is this the
way the way
that you saw it happening

Is this what
they told you
life would be
only dust
is this what it
looked like

Take a bow, you’ve done it--
we’ve done it now
Hear the thunder clap
the curtain’s almost down
Take a bow, you’ve done it--
we’ve done it now
Hear the thunder clap
the curtain’s coming down

Close your eyes
try to re-
member all
their faces
what their faces
looked like

Family
has new mea-
ning for those
of us still
left, left
behind

Take a bow, you’ve done it--
we’ve done it now
Hear the thunder clap
the curtain’s almost down
Take a bow, you’ve done it--
we’ve done it now
Hear the thunder clap
the curtain’s coming down
Track Name: The End
I’ve been looking in the mirror again
Trying to figure how I’ve changed
But there’s not one thing I can define
Don’t know but something’s not the same
My face looks different than before

If only I could forget
The feeling- three times over- tightness in my chest
Did you think I wasn’t trying?
Or did you just believe you really did know best?
My face looks different than before
Something is different from before

The distance now is short but deep
Not far to swim but if I fall in I might sink
And I don’t know anymore
Who’s to keep me from drowning

And this is the end you see
We were never very good at in-betweens
This is the last line I will write
Because this is the end of you and me
