Track Name: Demands
Hello my friend seems you've lost your head
you've got no words to write
you try and sing over broken strings just to
let loose the burdens of your mind (and thats alright)
But have no fear you've yet to use up your years why
spend them wrought with fright just
try to forget what you've learned good
bye to the world that promised you gold but then stripped it from your outstretched hands
it didn't work with their plans but you'll
bend to their demands
no more no more you'll
bend to their demands...
Hello my dear you've been gone for years at least thats
how it felt that night when i
heard your laugh at the laundromat and then
searched the room in fright i
tried to hide though my clothes were half-dry and i
turned my face from the light and ran
away 'cause i did not know what to
say to the girl that promised me gold but then
stripped it from my outstretched hands
it didn't work with her plans but i'll
bend to her demands
no more no more i'll
bend to her demands...
Track Name: Diving For Quarters
The ship is lost the cabin's flushed the boatsmen turn blue in their faces. We're nothing more than accidents, find your way or drown in this. Paddle faster if you still want to go home. This story's old but I have learned that faith in men could never redeem us. The captain's crushed, his mind's a bust, he's scared but he knows where his place is. Complacent in the captain's chair, we drift away we're diving for quarters. You'll sleep beneath the waves and dream to be freed. Anchors round our ankles bound, we're up to our necks in it. Paddle faster if you still want to go home. This story's old but I have learned that faith in men could never redeem us. Paddle faster if you still want to go home. This story's old but I have learned that faith in men could never redeem us. We're up to our necks in it.
We're up to our necks in it.
We're up to our necks in it.
Paddle faster if you still want to go home.
I waited 'till the end to call out to my friends now i contemplate the means that brought about this sordid end now facing my sins my loves my limbs giving way to the waves and whats left of this ship. You'll find us asleep at the bottom, asleep at the bottom of the sea.
Track Name: Garden Of Weeds
When you're gone i'll turn around and i'll walk back in
to the garden you left me with
see how tall the grass is, how long its been
it starts to wear on the soul, but still the heart persists
when your path of breadcrumbs gets lost in the wind
you'll need my help to find your way back home
but i only know the way to the road
so sorry darlin but from there you're on your own
i'll help you gain your bearings, make sure you don't die in the cold
but the safest route for the both of us is to let go of what we've known
even if the freedom kills us both
When I'm gone you'll turn around and you'll blow me a kiss
i'll accept it but i'll still shake my fists
and i'll crawl into whatever hole will bear my burdens
and hope the cold months don't come too quick
and all the strangest creatures that surround me when i sleep
they remind of the man i'm supposed to be
and we'll see the world as a different place
for better or worse you'll forget my face
and i'll be the first to admit we're better off
facing different directions
on the road to find our places
And I believe in findin out for yourself
