Track Name: Slow Meta
Oh when it came around
A shell shock memory
At a time when I was feelin' low
It caved in all around me
I thought it would be so good
Then I understood
A forest for my foot down
A cabin with my head blown

When I turned around
You had disappeared
Never saw her again
So I waved goodbye

It's already gone
We've already won
Catching all their attention

If I was listening
Setting you free
I was counting blocks of time
For a simple crime

When I turned around
You were gone not there
Never saw them again
So I waved goodbye

For one thing beautiful
To wash over me

The words
Track Name: Red Flags
I had a feeling you'd be calling
To come in for a one week stay
Set aside and got some time off
Drawin' on my old back pay
Sunshine was all around us
An a feeling of light
Freedom with no consequences
Free love but with no grace

I had a dream you had followed
Then I was mean a broke your halo
You had a scheme you had borrowed
And then to leave us with zero
Red flags fly, red flags fly

You won't go away
Even though I am running the other way
If all is broken a symptom made out of waste

Get a ticket one way out
I see right through your artful pout
See the wrangle, see the rig
I fill in all the holes you dig
Sometime with no one around
You can count your regrets
Frio y sin sentimientos
Frio con no anglais

I had a dream you had followed
Then I was mean and broke your arrow
You had a scheme you had borrowed
And then to leave us with zero
Red flags fly, red flags fly

You won't go away
Even though I am running the other way
And I won't be kind the folder you replace
No I won't be kind through the bitter after taste

If all is broken a symptom made out of waste
If all is broken that which is made can always be erased
Track Name: Ojai Bonfires
Promissory note goodbye for my crooked look
A tertiary good luck charm without any luck
Somethin' true there's something' about you
I wanna see if it's real
But all fucked up over nothin'
I turn my wheels towards home

All year long we wait for a sign to point north bound
And all year long she waited for a ship that sailed
She said it sailed
But I'll just sit right here in the heat of this Ojai bonfire
Yeah I'll just sit right here in the heat of my Ojai bonfire

In good times all my pieces fall right into place
Then I'm ruling, I rule, I'm ruling on every day
A single thought in my mind to control when love will break
But I fall again unfortunate, sorry my mistake and my fate

All year long we wait for a sign to point north bound
And all year long she waited for a ship that sailed
She said it sailed
But I'll just sit right here in the heat of my Ojai bonfire
Yeah I'll just sit right here in the heat of my Ojai bonfire

X-eyed running in circles just to carve my way
Balled up twisting and turning for something I cannot betray
The bad girls, the bad boy, in the summer of love
Track Name: Would Be Kings
Break away from what you said you take everything back
Break away from the living dead so they know
Take a line on a south beach break and get back to something real
Spite the crimes of those who've caved in their moments of weakness

And the times you would be king we're stolen
And all eyes point to an actor out of a line to sing
Oh make amends with hallowed saints still searching
Oh ghost the edge and blur the line that threatens fidelity

Make a list of the things you hate adding to history
Count the hours of Wednesday's waste and see it all separated
Sinking ships as the light turns grey grey meat is humanity
C'mon man no need to live in this way

And the times you would be king we're stolen
And all eyes point to an actor out of a line to sing
Oh make amends with hallowed saints still searching
Oh ghost the edge and blur the line that threatens fidelity

We sing into a light of an invisible shade
The last sin with an eye without vision
Track Name: Headstones
Lizzy cut us away as I rolled inside
And we let the past decide it chose to stay behind
Under the clouded haze a bold escape it's meant to anesthetize
For one frozen flower you tie me to the rails
In care of anything as long as we don't fail
Indivisible with liberty and just us
A bold escape into the darkest blue

We are one high above the sun
And we carry away, we're tearing away
And under headstones all around
If I had a witness

It's ideal if you feel it's real
You can show what's on your mind
Anyway you shape your thoughts
This gravity has an appeal
It's pulling us downward
Track Name: Clean As Snow
I lost a year in traffic and one long day in hell
To get of the wicked highway trust in trust again
This road leads to nothing and comfort so hard to kill
To get back, back to something it's easy, it's clean as snow
And I wanna go to the place I know

These wheels that roll all night until the morning light

Raising up our arms
And loaded up with stones
Do we fire love at will
Or hate at everything

These wheels that roll all night until the morning light

I lost a year in traffic and one long day in hell
Track Name: On A Cold Night
She's all around and under my shoulder
I calm myself for what's ahead
Lime for days in four leaf clover
Don't wake me now I wanna dream

Feel the rain on a cold night
Scratch the bruise black and blue on my side

Slip around dark city corner flirting with the fantasy
She is mine to do just as I please
Black curls and honey sweet
Track Name: Grand Total
The columns end can't bear to read it
Try to assess my grand total
I wanna spend on the trends
I wanna look my best for my best friends
I'm makin' plans I got demands requires money sweet honey
My markets crashed there's not enough
I need to raise my own debt ceiling

I'd be done if I believed it
Done if I believed

What a waste an endless chase
But the good life so appealing
Lock down a rate my wife is itchin'
Took out a loan on a brand new kitchen
I'm on the run look for a haven
Ditch my taxes in Grand Caymen
I need to save time to behave
Don't wanna die without a penny

I'd be done if I believed
Yeah if I believed
Track Name: In The Rut
Elk can live within the structure
Breed in freeze in the night
Male horns bend towards destruction
For them live once or never die
Piss on the legs roll in a hole
Before the thaw there is one theme
Just one thing to control

Stink and strut in the rut
On the edge he awaits
Stink and strut in the rut
We beget and never know

Cows look up through the fog
Twelve point buck on the run
Mud stained blood stained alpha
The herd will heed
Piss on the legs roll in a hole
Before the thaw there is one theme
Just one thing to control

Stink and strut in the rut
On the edge he awaits
Stink and strut in the rut
We beget and never know
Track Name: Strawberry Peak
I set a path up before the sun
My head in the clouds
Strawberry Peak I'm coming up
High on the trail I ride the edges
Look down to dream my death
A fiction in chaparral

If we can write a law for the lost
Uncomplicated words of a tyrant
Save us all from our soft spoken complaints
We can wall it off I'll be throwin' rocks
Off a silent wall

Some take the air and float out of sight
While some fall off and die without a fight
But I build a bridge, I'll build a bridge
For all my loves, the lives of friends I'm grateful for
