Track Name: Window Watcher
window watcher see you looking
hid behind your hair
cable cutter you never stutter on
leaving him the fair

ya never need a friend
plenty paths and trends

a bee stings
oh honey sweet
he's on repeat
girl gonna be

the streets they always talking
how he has your back
it's your beauty it's not your duty to be
certain of your facts

so lead him on again
secret songs for him

a bee stings
oh honey sweet
he's on repeat
girl gonna be

even all the raindrops in the clouds
will fall some day

a bee stings
oh honey sweet
he's on repeat
girl gonna be
Track Name: I Don't Know Why
here i am again
painting pictures in the sand
underneath the stars
wondering if they're too far and i
take a rocket ship
to the moon away from it and i
make the most of this
i am slow i must admit

i don't know why
i don't know why i do it again
every now and then i feel my heart will
take a turn makes me wonder why

the light in my eyes
blinding me from all it's lies
up before a crowd
of silhouettes they seem to proud
the stage is taking me
across the plains out to the sea but
have i missed my time
to know whats yours or truly mine

i don't know why
i don't know why i do it again
every now and then feel my heart will
take a turn makes me wonder why

where did the pain go
when you said I'm leaving
i am grateful
all my life i been living in a
hotel room a battered bus
a foreign flight knees full of rust
it's how i get by

where did the pain go

Track Name: Audubon
down in kentucky
he drew a bird
then took a picture
and sent it to her

on the mississippi
headed down south
didn't earn much money
living hand to mouth

an ocean filled with blue
an army trained to fight
he pursued
just for you

raised by his step mom
in western france
learned to play a few songs
and how to dance

sailed to pennsylvania
and hunted in the wild
an eye for avifauna
became his style

an ocean filled with blue
an army trained to fight
he pursued
just for you

he died a rich man
at age 65
way up in new york city
he's here to stay
he's here to stay
here to stay
Track Name: Haunted Herds
i'm all out of fight
i don't got a light
i'm all out of fight

i'm all out of fight
i don't got light

rifles on the range
crazy and deranged
i've seen a lot of folks go mad
for something else than a take down plan

i'm high as a kite
no more sleepless nights
i'm all out of fight
mining for lost gold down in a hole

i'm all out of fight
i don't got a light
i'm all out of fight

i'm all out of fight
i don't got light

light a cigarette
and let me help forget
and blow the smoke out your eyes
cause you can't hide
behind your own disguise

i'm high as a kite
no more sleepless nights
i'm all out of fight
mining for lost gold down in a hole

you should see
where i've been
a cymbal crasher marching band back then
in a field of failing wheat
in the town we sold the streets
back then back then

i'm high as a kite
no more sleepless nights
i'm all out of fight
mining for lost gold down in a hole

i'm all out of fight
i don't got a light
i'm all out of fight

i'm all out of fight
i don't got light
Track Name: She's My Rome
horizon hair
her lips and cheeks
i wait a moment
for her to speak

a dose of flames
a broken tooth
we know the meaning
we know the truth

she's my rome
she's my rome

a place to visit
a home to live
out by the mountains
so we can give

a voice a promise
i give to you
i'll always listen
i'll always prove

she's my rome
she's my rome
she's my rome
she's my rome
