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

Witch 03:14
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

Door #1 04:21
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

Apologetic 04:44
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

Curtain Call 03:45
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

The End 03:22
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
