Track Name: Road Trip
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
Track Name: In a Station of the Metro
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
Track Name: Autumn Wind
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
Track Name: wandering song
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
