Track Name: 1975
I can't believe what you said to me as I send my self off
to climb the white sands of New Mexico
you know I seek solace out there

I wish I could get to know you but I can't get that close
you know the bond is often staged to fail
because someone else's self doubt

all my horses all my stables
I'm not sure if I am able to
can't say that I found my somber's source
or a post to tie my horse to

and I guess it's not 1975
though the politics can still be so cruel
and I know I ain't tangled up in truth
just like I ain't tangled up in you

and I guess it's not 1963
cause I can't catch the wind that I breathe
and I guess it's not 1975
though the politics can still be so cruel
and I know I ain't tangled up in truth
just like I ain't tangled up in you
Track Name: Croatan National Forest
Theres a gold rush now and I'm leaving the city
chewing pine listening to regards from chuck pink
washing the mud in my sink oh how I love Geology

Chicago is fine
the budget is tight

I'm not drinking my wine
sticking to whisky and rye

I wonder why
I want to see the blue ridge mountains

out east I'd be fine
even in the Croatan National Forest

they're two separate things
but I'd be closer to being bearable

it's like a south eastern pheromone
Track Name: Wolves
Sisters upset, so I'm upset too
oh what a mess our house has come to

We've never spoken about her
now I've shaken my beer
yes see reminds me of wolves
I hope to god I don't have hooves

Boyhood lies to troop 88 from 1989
It took me that long to realize
your love for me felt like getting kicked in the side
and the sweat off my eyes as I fell to me feet in the summer fire
the fire flies I saw in the night sky as the fire died

and I can not believe it's all that I need
is some good company

Boyhood lies to troop 88 from 1989
I walk south of town with friend and a girl he'd never see in a gown
as I pictured my bride before I realized I never make the ties
and the knots that I grew up were nothing more than tangled fishing line

and I can not believe it's all that I need
is some good company
Track Name: Wasp
He likes the beach place
she likes summer days
doesn't matter that they're almost the same
his cold flightless bones will never know her home

wondering if we're like silver and bronze
or if we're like each others gold
