Track Name: The Years Go Down
I was lying on the inside
All snuggled safe and warm
Now I'm crying on the outside 'cuz all my keys won't fit the door
I'd survive in sunny weather
A little rainfall now and then
But I can't abide this endless desert storm of dry bones, sand, and wind

And so I say, I don't know why, I don't know why
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And now it's comin' down it's comin' down again
Was I ever on the inside?

Time was on my side for so long
'Til it said so long to me
Then it fled and left for dead this dying body on some dead man's property
Did I fall down on the first round?
Will I get up for the last?
Too many choices wrong and oh so long forgotten buried deep inside my little shallow past

What can I say?
I don't know why, I don't know why
(deep water stranded high and dry)
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And now it's comin' down it's comin' 'round again
I looked happy on the outside
To the world, to the world, say it again
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And now it's comin' down it's comin' down again
I was happy on the outside
To the world, to the world, to the world

I realize I'm outside
Every day, every night
Will I ever get it right?
I realize You're inside
You and me, could it be
I'm set free

I realize I'm outside
Clinging to the past
My world is dying and I keep on crying watching every precious day go
right on past
And so I say
I don't know why, I don't know why
Everybody has to die

The years go down, the years turn 'round
And it's comin' down, comin' down 'til everybody's in the ground
Are you happy on the inside?
To the world, to the world, say it again
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And it's comin' down, comin' down 'til everybody's in the ground
Are you happy on the inside?
Track Name: Sevens
Did you know my eyes were blue?
The day we met my heart was too
Now you say the color's changed
You're staring down a darker shade
of the man you knew

He painted on your shoulder blade
A love declared, a cheap display
scarred for life, your choice is always made
A paradise is what you throw away, throw away...

Seven come eleven, roll me baby
Blind faith in the call you'll make
If I play pokerface and walk away
You'll throw sevens

Underneath the sea of love
We always set our sails above
You knew not to push until I shoved
Hard enough to feel the tidal wave

I was there to see that you were safe
From every little storm that ever raged
Now we're drowning and there's nothing left to save
Can you see me? Tossing my love overboard and I'm blown away...

REPEAT CHORUS

Here's your lucky day, you got all you wanted from me
Roll another bone for your history

You don't know what you're doing
You don't know at all
Burning down your love like a cigarette
You burn it down 'til there's nothing left.
You don't know what you'll ruin
You don't know at all
You can't bet on your love like a winning hand
Suck it up 'til the money's all gone.
You don't know what your running
Your game is gonna fall
Throwing down your love 'til there's nothing left... There's nothing left....
Track Name: Unbalanced
I come with lines, you talk in circles
I own the blues, you rent the color purple
I scream for ice cream, you whisper for wine
You do your life, baby I do my time

I've got time, you've got none
You know all and I know some
I fall short, you stand tall
You conceal and I show it all

I like playgrounds, you love games
I nail things down and you rearrange
You loved early and I love late
You throw the dishes, babe I just clean my plate

repeat chorus

You plant a family, I dig a space
I watch my back while you wash your face
You work for money and I play for fun
Babe you're so inviting but I still can't come

When I think of getting deeper with it baby
You throw on something deep and purple baby
Unlike me diggin' Donnie Lee and the Children of Truth babe
Sit down! Shut up! listen to me go crazy...

repeat chorus twice, substitute last line with:
you conceive and I abort all

repeat chorus

hey, yeah, I show it
yeah, show it- don't blow it
hey- hey- owwwww!
too much baby, alright
Track Name: Blue Sky
Moline
Saying what she didn't mean
Making like a Dairy Queen
Milking me when I was never gonna be the king

Well, I swear
She feathered up her little nest
to treat me like a little guest
She got the best and I swallowed all the rest

All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
To keep the rain from coming down

I fell
Ran off half cocked pell mell
Got caught smoking in her little hell
Devil or angel, I could never tell

I jumped fence
Now I'm living in the present tense
No more little accidents
No more sideshow me the main event

All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
To keep the rain from coming down
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
I need to know, I need to go
No rain
No rain
I got caught in the rain before
Telling you baby, won't get caught no more

All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
All she needed was a blue train leaving town
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
I need to know, I need to go
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
All she needed was a blue train leaving town
All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round
All she needed
All she needed
All she needed
Track Name: The Best I Have
Look in my eyes again
As blue as they've ever been
but so far down is not the end

I got a little crazy
Left you out in a purple haze
Now and then, I wonder
How you've been, babe?

Will you want it
Will you believe it
Knowing you'll live for ever and ever
never alone
in a life going home
is the best I have...
is the best I have...

I had a dream, I saw you
Left me in tears and swollen eyes
Come back baby while there's still time
Please let me hold you and tell you
that all that I have in hope for you
One more time together
I'd think about that if you wanted

CHORUS

Come to me, I want you to come back and see
Take the lovin' when you come to me, you come to me

It's possible to feel little lost 'til your heart unwinds
Give it time
