Track Name: Acorn
Hey little reaper, gathering nuts in your bed
Hey little sleeper, they're knockin' around in your head

I'm comin now, from a long sleep
I've got my rocket and my submarine
I've got a pocket full of acorns
I picked with a friend in the place we were born

Hey down South, I'm sending my birds to your roof
And this first of November is just the same as all the ones of our youth

I'm comin now, from a long sleep
I've got my rocket and my submarine
I've got a pocket full of acorns
I picked with a friend in the place we were born

There's nothing as real as the woods where we walked silently
And I still feel our summer dream
and endless autumn leaves
November mysteries
So please, wait up for me
cause I'm comin now.

Hey down South, you picked up an acorn today
No need to open your mouth, I still hear every word you say
Track Name: Fire
Don't touch me like that, I'm water
Don't touch me like that, you'll burn your hands
You need to know where I came from
You need to know
Don't touch me like that I'm water
Don't touch me like that, you'll burn your hands
You need to know where I came from

I'm the queen of rock and sand and stone
I'm the queen of dirt and blood and flesh and bone

I have been to countries, I can't remember which you're from
but I could sit with you for hours and still be having fun
yes I could fall in love with you just because you're kind
to old ladies and babies
yeah I could make you mine

I'll meet your fire with fire
and we can build a bigger flame
douse it out tomorrow and then we'll light it up again

and I should tell you that I am giving you a chance
I should tell you I am giving you a chance
and I never give anyone a chance

Don't touch me like I am water
Don't touch me like that, you'll burn your hands
You need to know where you came from
You need to know
Don't touch me like I am water
Don't touch me like that, you'll burn your hands
You need to know where you came from

You're the king of rock and sand and stone
You're the king of dirt and blood and flesh and bone

I'll meet your fire with fire
and we can build a bigger flame
douse it out tomorrow and then we'll light it up again

I should tell you I could fall in love with you (3X)
Track Name: Bones
Bones

Verse 1

The bottle smashed, the bowl is cashed
I'm lucid dreaming but I'm awake
I like my logic when it's like this,
totally trashed


There's not an insect to be found
My head is touching stars and my feet are underground
In the ground, where we all become the same
And there are storms, but there's no rain

Chorus

Bones bones bones
Creatures that are tucked away, burning in the desert clay
Bones, bones

Verse 2

I've got a secret in my hat
And I will trade it for a kiss
In the desert there is wind but there's no rain and it
moves me like this
I've got two hundred and a few
I'm asking questions through my hands and my hands are touching you
and it moves me, it moves me, it moves me
like this
like this


Chorus

Bones bones bones
Turn beneath the stars, Venus shows herself to Mars
Bones, bones

Verse 3

So lay me down in the dust
Hold my skin that holds my bones, surfaces that will become a
home to you
five hundred bones between us, rolling over the bones beneath us, I'll be home to you

Chorus

Bones bones bones
Turn beneath the stars, Venus shows herself to Mars
Bones, bones, bones
I don't wanna cover up these
bones, bones
I don't wanna cover up these bones, bones
Track Name: Ride (Feat. Ayumi Perry)
I'm gonna see the mind of the maker,
gonna touch the hands of the damned
I'm gonna ride this tidal wave til it meets the land
follow the people under the bridge where the candles burn creekside
step up the riverbank into your truck and let you take me for another ride


I wanna lean my head out the window
feel the wind and jump in the water
and I only wanna lie in the arms of a man who can love me harder
(2X)
Track Name: Haunt
you oughta know that I can read the smoke in your shadow
and I could stay tonight, I could leave my dust on your pillow

I will haunt you like I'd haunt my own killer
I will find you without a name
I will haunt you like I'd haunt my own killer
you better watch your black heart cause we're all the same

your protection don't mean much if it's only against other men
and my affection won't touch you nohow, as long as you're touching my skin

I will haunt you like I'd haunt my own killer
I will find you without a name
I will haunt you like I'd haunt my own killer
you better watch your black heart cause we're all the same
Track Name: Stay in the Dark
Glass is shattered around the park
a broken window in every car
let's stay in the dark
I'd rather stay in the dark

Old lady asks to take
a bite of somethin off our plate
I couldn't say
why you turned away

We need a space
for all these lonely faces
I couldn't say
why you turned away

The tambourine man
he shakes a shaker shaker from a can
keeps him warm
where he stands

We need a space
for all these lonely graces
I couldn't say
why you turned away

shadows in the dark
circle their chosen parts
charcoal turns to cold grey
shoes that shuffle away

Sirens in the night
and the sound of another street fight
anything to get high
while we're still alive
while we're still alive

while we're still alive
while we're still alive
while we're still alive
Track Name: Color of Everything
Been thinkin about these things, things I've said
learned 'em from other people
Let's not worry about these things, better left for dead
only words we said

The tone of your arms is printed on my sheets
I can't give it up easily
and the color of your skin is beautiful brown
hope I see you around

I can't believe that words so quick
can tear apart the things we thought would stick
cause they're not what you mean to me
what you mean to me
what you mean to me
what you mean to me

The poet in my heart is lying on the ground
litter all around
she's reaching for the bottle, then putting it away
no words left to say

I can't believe that words so quick
can tear apart the things we thought would stick
cause they're not what you mean to me
what you mean to me
what you mean to me
what you mean to me

I know our skins are both the color of everything
and that's what you mean to me
that's what you mean to me
what you mean to me
what you mean to me
what you mean to me
what you mean to me
Track Name: My Friend
My friend, I am so tired
won't you come to me and talk for a while?
And you said she had you inspired
but who's the girl who listens to you at the end of the day?

I don't mind,
leave the credit behind,
my friend

you make me feel like a little sitting Buddha

My friend, please keep me close by
like a little lucky charm that you hold tight in your fist
And you always ask me why
did you get what you asked for, why did you ask for this?

I say it's a necessary death
and you say wait.
and let me get my pen

and I smile because it's true,
cause it's the best gift that I can give to you

My friend, my friend, my friend
Track Name: Lover
River tide, talk to me
Nothing here to decide
only to breathe

and carry, carry, carry
carry, carry, carry
carry, carry carry our melodies

I need a minute
don't talk, don't talk

I'll release my fingers
let it drop

comfort, comfort, comfort
comfort, comfort, comfort
comfort, comfort, comfort
you comfort me

my next bold move is to sit
to watch and listen and wait

lover, lover, lover
lover, lover, lover
lover, lover, lover
you comfort me

dust like a river and snakes on our tongues
leave us here to wait
open your eyes
see what you see
swim in this river that's carrying me

lover, lover, lover
lover, lover, lover
lover, lover, lover
you comfort me
you comfort me
Track Name: Maple
I hope you'll forgive my fumbling
I'll stand by the maple tree and sing to you, such pretty things
I hope you'll be patient with me
Cause there are parts of you I'd like to see

Roll, Daddy, roll
I keep my money and I lose my soul (2X)

I'm gonna jump
But these are baby wings
So stand by that maple stump
I'm ready

Roll, Daddy, roll
I keep my money and I lose my soul (4X)

Someday, I'll call you in for dinner and you'll stay
Track Name: Mama (Feat. Aaron Jurgens and Ayumi Perry)
Mama, keep it away
keep the rain away
Oh Mama, I'll follow behind you
Take your umbrella, and your best advice

Oh Mama,
all the children, they don't have a mother like you
all the children, they don't have a mother like you

Oh Papa, you're teaching me well
you give me something to live by, something I can sell
Oh Papa, you're always looking out for me
even when I fight you, you stand behind me

Oh Papa
all the children, they don't have a father like you
all the children, they don't have a father like you
all the children, they don't have a father like you
all the children, they don't have a father like you
Track Name: Mandolin
Verse 1
I'd like to hear your saddest song
take it away
play it for me once
play it over again
If you would let me hear your music
I'd listen for myself
then tell the world about your songs
sweep them off the shelf

Chorus
So play your mandolin, play it just for me
And I'll be far away, but I'll be listening
I'll play my guitar, I'll play it just for you
You can run from love, but you can't run from the blues

Verse 2
I'd like to hear your saddest song
take it away
play it for me once
play it over again
If you would let me hear your music
I'd listen for hours
All your love and all your madness
It gives me

Chorus

Bridge (Instrumental)
