Track Name: Loveless Traveler / Belles On The Tye
LOVELESS TRAVELER
Rain was pounding on my windshield wipers…ice was forming on my Heart and my hands…rain come down on Loveless Traveler…death walks beside me.

And it’s a long, long road…I know.
Yeah it’s a long, long road…roll on.
God it’s a long, long road…I know. I know…

Lights grow dim on the road less traveled…buried secrets are now calling out my name…just like any bad luck story…the writer’s in me.

And it’s a long, long road…I know.
Gone down the long, long road…roll on.
Yeah, it’s a long, long road…I know.
God it’s a long, long road…I know. I know.

Rain was pounding on my windshield wiper...a howling wind underneath my wheels…
And the morning sun…it drops from my eyes…
In shadows…

I slowed down and I pulled over…to see the Loveless Traveler there, in the sand…Sun bleached bones and vultures leering…his song was in me.

And it’s a long, long road…
Goddamn the long, long road….
Yeah it’s a long, long road…I know.
Goddamn the long, long road…roll on.
And it’s a long, long road…I know... I know.


THE BELLES ON THE TYE
Oh, the Belles along the Tye make you hang your head and sigh…another day in Hungry Valley…creeping in.
This ghost has haunted me for so long…And the morning belle is singing…swimming in the dress she wore so long ago.

Oh, the Belles out on the Tye make you hang your head and cry……Another day in Hungry Valley slowly dies…
This girl has haunted me for so long…and the morning belles are reigning…living in the dust and ringing in the dawn…

Track Name: Suffering Maid
SUFFERING MAID
Ooh,Suffering Maid…
Ooh, Suffering Maid…
Ooh, Suffering Maid…
Ooh yeah, what a tumbling maid.

Cars, for miles along the Gulf Coast Highway…
Bedrooms thunder in blue.
Hymns and hate in high definition…Cain and Able still make news.
Poor Proud Mary, how they’ve sold you down the river…

And while the radio played When The Levee Breaks…
Their livin’ lovin’ maids…they were dancing on the tables, and…

Ooh,Suffering Maid…
Ooh, Suffering Maid…
You’re a tumbling maid…Ooh, stumbling maid…you’re a tumbling maid.

Fixing a hole at the bottom of the ocean…praying hard for a new daybreak.
Serpents, lies…facts and fables…what a noise they make.
Let’s talk about my frown…when you’re hiding underground?

With your children staying up late, waiting for the End of Days…
Such a model of behavior…we’re gonna need a loving savior…

Ooh, Suffering Maid…
Ooh Suffering Maid…
Ooh, Suffering Maid…Ooh yeah, what a stumbling maid

Track Name: Sunlight
SUNLIGHT
Sunlight came burning through my window…
Burn on, burn on…another day.
Like some unholy order…running warm through my veins.
I thought I found my way back home…but I was just Missouri bound.
As she held out her arms to her Kingdom…
Then one morning, no warning…ran away with my Crown…

And mmm… yeah, the sunlight was coming through my window…Didn’t know what to do with the sunlight…coming through my….
Sunlight…sunlight…sunlight…

Sweet Baby James is singing…for one more night I close my eyes.
Lord don’t it feel so low…to be someone’s temporary high.
The Story County moon was full and bright…
Mars now hangs and waits for war.
Now she just closes her shutters…
Now, I just look better in the dark.

Didn’t know what to do with the sunlight … coming through my window.
( …the Story County moon was full and bright…)
Yeah, I didn’t know what to do…with the sunlight…coming through my window.

Ooh, Sunlight….Ooh, sunlight…Ooh…
Mmm… the sunlight is coming through my window…
Mmm..the sunlight is still coming through my window…
Didn’t know what to do…with the sunlight,…coming through my window…
Betrayed by the moon…and the sunlight’s still coming through my window…
Yeah, I didn’t know what to do with the sunlight.

Track Name: Towed Into Twilight
TOWED INTO TWILIGHT
Oh how she breaks you down…makes you cry…
Oh how she wanders in…leads you to a door, and then…

Ooh…I was… towed into twilight.
Ooh…I was…towed into twilight…with the night closing in.

Oh how…the morning sun can make you blind.
In she comes, in great disguise…what a sight for sullen eyes.

Oh, could it be that I’ve been…
( towed into twilight)…
All through the night, well I’ve been…
( towed into twilight)…
Into the morning, still…
( towed into twilight)…
Yeah, could it be that I’ve been…

Ooh…I was…towed into twilight.
Ooh…I was…towed into twilight…with the night closing in.

Track Name: Wheels
WHEELS
Near death on a Greyhound…I heard a late night lonesome song…feeling like a Lineman, rolling down some Wichita road.
So wide eyed and willing…feeling invisible in the crowd…
Alone in Union Station, late night…sometimes it never seems…

It never seems, it never seems, it never seems…
Wheels, they are turning…
Wheels, they are turning…
Wheels, they are turning…ooh yeah…my wheels.

I’m boarding a morning train…dive under the wake of the World, and her restless dreams…
Her restless dreams…
Mainline to a midnight star…oh, Maid of Olympia…
She never sleeps…she never sleeps…she never sleeps…she never sleeps.

Staring into the hours, sometimes the Mysteries are harder to hold.
But I’m hoping by morning, I’ll understand just how it all grows…

I know it never seems…it never seems…it never seems…
Wheels, they are turning…
Wheels, they are turning…
Wheels, they are turning…
Wheels, they are turning…ooh, yeah…my wheels.

Track Name: Possible Places
POSSIBLE PLACES
So much to do…so much to say…
Night and day we’re down on the floor…
Praying you will open up the door…so much to say…

Imagining possible places…let’s run away from the neon glow…
Imagining possible places…I drown in impossible spaces.

So, what to do…with so much faith ?
And so much thirst I find I wasted all that water, waiting on the wine…so much to faith.

Imagining possible places…too much daytime, too little light.
Imagining possible places…I drown in impossible spaces…
Imagining possible places…
Imagining possible places…
I drown in impossible spaces.

Track Name: Long Days
LONG DAYS
On better days I would wander down…
To the water’s edge, by a dead end road…
The wrought iron rails and white horses roamed…
Shutters closed on summer fields, so overgrown…
And a lonely house on a hill…
Broken and silent, and still…

Long days…All the dances so familiar…so hard to retrace…
With a light in every room...a song in every space…
We chased the darkness…god knows how long.

Since longer days I wander down…through the halls and through the walls, with a heart of stone.
In shuttered rooms, earthly borders, I’ve…
Stayed too long in this unwelcomed summer home.
A lonely house by the sea…It’s broken and silent like me.

Long days…all the dances so familiar…so hard to retrace…
With a light in every room…a song in every space…
We chased the darkness…god knows how long.

Track Name: Gone
GONE
Early in the morning…climbing the stairs…
Outside a cold, blue moon…inside an empty chair.
I struggle for the reasons…stumble in the dark...

...Oh, my friend…you know I miss you when you’re gone.

Came a storm between us…that we could have outrun.
But the drum beating on the shore…whispered death into our bones.
But when it comes to leaving…I’m the worst of all.

...Oh, my friend…I really miss you when I’m gone.
I really miss you when I’m gone…

Stars are all visible…but the signal’s still lost…
And all the day I’m holding on…to the one who never phones.
Cause when it came to leaving…I was the worst of all…

...Oh, my Love…I really miss you when you’re gone.
...I miss you when you’re gone.
..I really miss you when you’re gone.
