Track Name: Great White Lawn
I went down to the meadow
I went down to the sea
I went down to the great white lawn
I went down just to see
If you would come back to me

I floated down like a feather
I floated out to the sea
I fell down into the great wide arms
(Of) my big strange family
and they just rescued me
Track Name: Fall
this fall / brought out the colors / in my heart / or was it only dying when the wind / shook my home / i lost my grip / on everything i thought i’d known

like my heart / like its color / i thought i knew what love was and i / thought i’d never be alone
but i am / and i don’t know what winter brings or if i’ll ever find my way

and now / i’m floating down / into your arms / i’m cracked and i am brittle
but i know / if you take me home / and keep me warm / that you could be everything

that i wanted / that i needed / you can save me / you can feed me
the wind is blowing / it just gets colder / i’ll bring the tears if you bring the shoulder
please / i’m on my knees / and i feel weak / and i will just keep asking you again
again / and again / and again and again and...

this fall / brought out the colors / in my heart
Track Name: Don't Wake Me Up
Don't wake me up darling
Just let me be
Don't let me wake darling
Just let me dream

I can't face another day
Knowing that you're gone
Don't want to face another day
Here in the light of the dawn

Don't wake me up darling
Just let me be
Don't let me wake darling
Just let me dream

I can't face another day
Knowing that you're gone
Why can't I stay right here in my dreams
Forever right here in your arms
Track Name: Fog
it’s coming round the mountain
it’s rolling off the sea
it’s flowing through the meadow
heading straight for me
i see it in my daydreams
i taste it in my sleep
but this ain’t no fantasy
lapping at my feet

oh my darling / oh my love

i see the faces of my mother
my sisters and my dad
all my lovin’ family
everything i had
it’s no use a-runnin’
or cryin’ to your friends
this old black fog will
get you in the end

oh my darling / oh my love
Track Name: Where the Brushes Grow
1, 2, buckle my show
3, 4, we're out the door
5, 6, pick up sticks
7, 8, don't be late

take me up to the mountain
take me down to the sea
take me down to where the brushes grow
take me down and set me free
Track Name: Crashing Down
Sometimes it seems that we are not enough
Sometimes my dreams end before we touch
So while we scream with voices getting rough
From hands we bleed cause they have got so tough

But I’d like to be around when it all comes crashing down
With you by my side we will stand our ground
Someday when the future calls will we hear the sound?
And I’d like to be around when it all come crashing down

So while we steal a life from underground
We scratch a meal from the sidewalks when we’re down
A style they squeal but we’re gunning for the crown
So fine a deal but we will own this town

But I’d like to be around when it all comes crashing down
With you by my side we will stand our ground
Someday when the future calls will we hear the sound?
And I’d like to be around when it all come crashing down

No we won’t go
No we won’t go silently or violently
And will it show
Your decaying society so why don’t we

But I’d like to be around when it all comes crashing down
With you by my side we will stand our ground
Someday when the future calls will we hear the sound?
And I’d like to be around when it all come crashing down
Track Name: A Long Way From Home
I am a long way from home

I’m gonna find a place to call my own
I need a place where I can be alone

and it’s a long way I roam

I’m gonna find a place to call my own
I need a place where I can be alone

I am a long way from home

I’m gonna find a place to call my own
I need a place where I can be alone
Track Name: Prayer of Resurrection
She doesn’t want you to call
She doesn’t need you to stay
You’re not her angel of redemption
No matter what you have to stay

and you’ve known / and you’ve known it all along
she’s the only one who can sing this song
and they’ve got pills / and they’ve got shocks / and they’ve got power / and they’ve got locks
and they’ve got fear / and they’ve got drugs / and they’ve got doctors / and they’ve got love
but they’ve got nothing / nothing at all

and you want her to run / but she can barely walk
and you want her to find the way / but the path is long
and you want her to open up / but she can barely talk
and you want her to stay stay stay / but she’s already gone

and you’ve known / and you’ve known it all along
she’s the only one who can sing this song
and they’ve got pills/and they’ve got shocks/and they’ve got power/and they’ve got locks
and they’ve got fear/and they’ve got drugs/and they’ve got doctors/and they’ve got love
but they’ve got nothing / nothing at all

we say this prayer of resurrection
but there’s no one to take requests
we all fall short of their perfection
and has this temple been condemned?

we say this prayer of resurrection

where there is hatred / give us love
where there's despair / give us hope
where there is weakness / give us might
and from the valley / bring us heights
where there is doubt / give us faith
where there is hardship / give us grace
where there is sadness / give us joy
where there is loss / let us console
where there is darkness / give us light
where there is dying / give us life

where there is darkness / give us light
where there is dying / give us life
where there is darkness / give us light
where there is dying / give us life
