Track Name: Home Again
There’s a hole in my heart
That the rivers run through
Worlds away from the wicked I came
To the edge in the dark

Where my worries are real
I can stand to face the fear
I can take it to the end where a healing hand
Guides me home again

Diamonds never seem to gleam brightly
Once the light is low they glow faintly

I’ll be alright
Just been working too much
Saturday soon I’ll be sleeping till noon
When I’m home again

I’ve been thinking of you
It can carry through the day
Guess there’s something to say, that I am lost this way
Far from home again

Diamonds never seem to gleam brightly
Once the light is low they glow faintly

There’s a hole in my heart
That the rivers run through
Miles away, for a moment I pray
Bring me home again, Father, bring me home again

Track Name: So The Story Goes
Everything’s changing here
I used to know my neighbors well
All of this came apart when…

The war began and the signs came out
Bitter and afraid, under darkening cloud
Pastor in the pew where the faithful kneel
They’re standing in the back far across the street

Everything’s changing here
I used to know my neighbors well
All of this came apart when…

The factory closed and the jobs moved on
Farmers in the field but the crops are gone

Say it isn’t so but don’t be patronizing
Give us the courtesy to speak
You see, you want yours to be the end all
But they’re dying in the streets

Everything’s changing here
I used to know my neighbors well
All of this came apart when…

The river ran dry, the factory closed
The war began, so the story goes

Track Name: Only Dreaming
See you later
But it’s not meant to be
Things we say to each other
Are coated carefully

All of this, bits and pieces
She lines up where she needs
Everything as it should be
Coated carefully

I’m only dreaming you

It starts when we were young
Vague but as it is
Pulling on strings that were tucked away
Through many years

I’m only dreaming you
You may be dreaming too

Did you see beyond what you were meant to see
Just a smudge, a stitch upon the circuitry
Coated carefully

Stay with me a while
And let the evening go
Count with me the stars and we
Can feel we’re both alive

I’m only dreaming you
You may be dreaming too

Track Name: Fair Weather North
Sunny on the lane, spring for now with chance of rain
Just another day, carries me back I’m swept away
I’ve been thinking of you forever, and now
Such is our draw, take it and run for answers

Do you sense it, a ripple in time
A strong emotion I can’t identify
I’m pulling hard, I have to hold this life we built together
If only fair weather north

Something on my mind, there, but I just can’t remember
A face, a name, a word, a nagging sense of some importance
Where have I lost my mind this time
Closing my eyes I’m back on the lane

Do you sense it, a ripple in time
A strong emotion I can’t identify
I’m pulling hard, I have to hold this life we built together
If only fair weather north

Lost somewhere in…I don’t know

Track Name: At The End
Here at the end of the world
The choices are harder to make
I look for the clues in the spin of the news
What are they saying

I hear but I can't believe
There's fear in the message
Smiling at serious points in the program
Anchors are edgy

I've been praying save us from ourselves

Here at the end of the world
Tension is building
So many lives but there's not enough time
Coffers are empty

I've been praying save us from ourselves
Save us from the world that turned away

Here at the end of the world...
