Track Name: Buck
Nix
Zilch
Nil
Zero
None
Zip
Just nothing

No thoughts of our own
No clothes on the bone
No prejudice, nor hate
No color wars
Irate

It's a world we can't recall
Those first moments of our days
Just a spacious open canvas
Tainted by our poppa's ways

(Chorus)
Nix
Zilch
Nil
Zero
None
Zip
Just nothing
Just buck

Stained present by the past
Strained shaping of tomorrow
Perceptions that will last

(Chorus)

Our ways become our luggage
That we carry our whole life
We pass it to our children
It becomes their future strife

Stained present by the past
Strained shaping of tomorrow
Perceptions that will last
It's their futuristic sorrow…
Track Name: Stay in the Light
You met me in the darkness
You met me in the night
To bring me to the light
My shadow was resistant to give me back my sight

Come to our land
The butterflies
Dart through my hands
Reach out and touch the light

You met me in the darkness
You saw me in my night
You met me in the darkness
You met me in the night
Met me there so I could see the light

Bring me to the day
Bring me to the light
Bring me to the day
Keep me in the light
Track Name: The Humbling Hum
Do they hear it up in Humboldt?
Darker than a thunderbolt
Or down in New Orleans
Slicker than a holy ghost...

This thing's inside my head
Is aching
Memories stirred
Confidence shaking
Will I die young?
(The Humbling Hum)
Where does it come from?
(The Humbling Hum)
Track Name: Broken
Yeah, my dad was the king of the backroads
Still is
So many trees passing us by
So much silence
What is there to say when you're alone?
Sometimes you are alone
And there is a person sitting right there
Next to you
She came into my life
Like a light
She could walk the fine lines of the cracks in my heart
Her naked feet stepped through the halls of my cavernous soul
There are roads that lead to goddess
And there are windows waiting to be broken open…

They try to break the rind
Believing they might find
A bite of fruit so kind
It could dissolve their insecurity
But at the generous core
A liquid spirit roars
So fierce, and true, and sweet
It tears the bag
And rots their teeth

Remember that old stretch of road we would speed down
Flying over the railroad tracks
Having the cops chase us down
Throwing us in the back of their cars

Blood grows quicker through veins
You pull me closer, lover
Pull me out of my shame
You lift the light, sugar
You break open the frame
You lift the light, sugar
You break open the frame

La la, la la la la, la la
La la, la la la la, la la
Track Name: The Wind Came Up
The wind came up
The other day
On a planet not like ours
Lake alkali
lightning strikes
Ashes rise

Looking
I've been looking for you

The wind came up
It blew your name
(I've been listening)
So far away
And on that shore
Where gods reside
There, you will find me waiting...
