Road Trip 04:34
Come with me My cold blooded baby Let’s just leave The road is calling Will you come with me And see What we could be Ooh I’m ready to let go, I Know there’s something out there in the pines Let’s find a beach Watch the sun set And the stars gleam Hotels and highway lights Motels and moonshine The American dream could be alive With you by my side It’s alright It’d be alright I don’t need all the things I think I need I think some ink and endless roads On which to sink, on which to grow And you with me, that’s really all I’d sing my sad songs in roadside bars We'd read scripture in the passing cars It’d be so beautiful and sweet to see We'd be so free  Ooh I’m ready to let go, I Know there’s something out there in the pines Let’s find a beach Watch the sun set As the world bleeds Hotels and highway lights Motels and gunfights The American dream has died But it's alright We'll be alright Cause we can fly We can fly

bloodred motel signs soiled and divine light my silent drive reflecting my design blood in the bathroom sink i've been killing everything i don't wanna go to sleep i don't wanna see the morning it's always autumn it's always twilight here and the scream of the subways keeps ringing, keeps ringing in my ear have no mercy leave me blind take a gun to my wanted mind i tried so hard to keep control hide my body hide my soul burn the undergrowth you don't wanna know living in the velvet underground i kinda wanna go out tonight take the subway to the end of the line all the way to that tunnel of light pass through the autumns all the twilights gone and the bodies tangled between the subway lines will be angels, will be angels by the dawn at least the city knows me right as i fall through the black ice freezing in the underworld dreaming, dreaming away my life wish i could be grateful wish i could be satisfied or make these endless dreams come to life but i just hold them till they all unwind and i keep pushing you away i keep missing every train throwing my shots away watching them slide down the drain at least the city knows my mind with all its dreams that have died it's a graveyard made of lights and together we drive

Autumn Wind 05:12
The autumn wind Comes rolling in like an old friend Old friend How is it I’ve lost you again? They say I should let go But everything comes back I know Will you come rolling in again Like the autumn wind? Nothing is created or destroyed But I know you’re here in some form If I can’t hold you in flesh and bone I’ll hold you in a song They say I should let go But everything comes back I know When will you come rolling in again Like the autumn wind? The autumn wind The autumn wind Another summer ends Say goodbye this time Just say goodbye this time Don’t leave me in the middle of the night Don’t leave me asking why Say goodbye this time This silence is like a knife Say goodbye Before the ice says goodbye to the light Maybe I’ll let go But everything comes back I know I know we will meet again Perhaps not as ourselves Maybe as the wind

I left home one evening Walked into the light I was looking for answers In the days and nights I had a body and face I was told were mine Painted sparkles on my eyes Spent too long asking if I looked alright And I think I’ll travel a great many roads Before I go back home And I think I’ll wander a long long way Fore I know what I’ve always known I tried looking in the flowers That grew by the ocean floor Saw ragged cliffs and apocalypse wars Made me ask what it’s all for And many said love was the answer With that far-off look in their eyes But what does that mean in this lonely hotel When the one I want is nowhere nearby I think I’ll travel a great many roads Before I get back home And I think I’ll wander a long long way To know what I’ve always known I thought I’d try out religion Cast my eyes to the sky But all of it seemed like constellations Connecting disparate worlds as they fly And I've spent many nights drenched in sorrow A blues that don’t seem to ever quit Sure seems like some of us are cursed With endless longing for things that don’t exist Yeah I think I’ll travel a great many roads Before I get back home Yeah I think I’ll wander a long long way To know what I’ve always known Yeah I've got a long way to travel In these rented bones Lot of songs to be sang, lot of laughs to be had But lord one day I'm coming home And I’ll stand looking out at the kingdom And I’ll see your holy reasons And I’ll thank you for all of the bleeding And the seasons I will keep believing
