Track Name: Tonight is a New Moon
tonight is a new moon
(boyd)

writing you a letter
put it in your bag
for you to read whenever
if you ever unpack
i wish i could write better
but there's a rabbit in my wrist
there are worms in my words
that keep my tongue in a twist

the power's out at home
the radiator's cold
the lamp fell on the floor
and busted the light bulb
i wish i could see better
but tonight's a new moon
there are storms in the sky
so the stars can't poke through

every time i practice scratching
i couldn't sit still
been running to keep young
been running in a rat wheel
write a novel with a body
capture it on film
running though an old home haunting
listen to the wind wail

writing you a letter
stuff it in your bag
for you to read whenever
if you ever unpack
i wish i could write better
but there's a rabbit in my wrist
there are worms in my words
that keep my tongue in a twist
Track Name: Three Girls Sitting Across the Bar
three girls sitting across the bar
(boyd)

walk around dark halls
of this aquarium
head swimming
like a fish i had when i was young
got a chest full of spare breath
i know it doesn't matter
no mermaid in this tank
to hope the glass would shatter

space stationed in a sterile place
miles off the street
bed bigger than distance
teasing me to reach
morning comes
but there's no sun
so i strap on my scanner
enclosed in a glassy dome
i know i'll soon be landing

three girls sitting across bar
in some oasis
no trace my old sweethearts
any of their faces
recently kicked in the teeth
i might forget my manners
no home i wanna go to
so it doesn't matter
Track Name: Wintertime Mountaintop Rock
wintertime mountaintop rock
(boyd)

up before the sun
little rooms aglow
driving north to meet you
don't let your head
get beat by the snow
or the elements freeze you
once we start loving
don't you ever stop
please don't you ever stop
i've been so dead on the riverbed
meet me on the mountaintop

started off alone
don't know where I drove
but I jumped a little stream
never told anyone
that I was gone
but no one looked for me
once we collide
stay by my side
please don't you, honey
think I'd want an ocean to
keep me from your company

boulders and birds are silent
you call me mountain lion

oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh ohhhh

i know a panther
with black hair
but she's only half there
and a snail on a stone
but that got old
her home was a black hole
once we start rocking
don't you ever stop
please don't you ever stop
come on and meet me on the mountaintop
mountaintop rock!
once we start loving
don't you ever stop
don't you ever stop
once we start loving
don't you ever stop
don't you ever stop!
Track Name: Big Wolf
big wolf
(boyd/mcelhaney)

last night I heard you howling in the woods
i thought you're voice sounded good
pretty soon we embraced
through the foggy night we raced
i'm not going anywhere
no hurry to get here
one lone wolf hunting under the moon
for someone like you

you found me lurking in the dark
yook notice of my beating heart
i was told about a beast
never cared for what they preach
i'm not going anywhere, no hurry to get there
just a child crying to the moon
for someone like you.

just a shot in the dark
that you might
that you'd have the same spark in your heart
running craz
and when i close my close my eyes
i can feel you coming for me

last night i heard you howling in the woods
i thought your voice was sounding good
at first the thirst was only mine
now we're running side by side
i'm not going anywhere
unless you're heading there
one lone wolf wanting to become two
with someone like you
Track Name: The Temple
the temple
(boyd)

you walk in my temple
hammer in your hand
so many things
you don't understand
maybe you do
and your designs are grand
uncoil the serpents
that strike at command
you vandalize and chisel
at walls made of stone
just 'cause they'll weather
just 'cause they'll erode
don't mean you have the right
to worsen their load
all this from some spook
some uncool dead
though its fun how they crumble
like stale slices of bread
when they come tumbling down
who holds the roof for your head
when they come tumbling down
who holds the roof for your head

you stand in my garden
pissing on my plants
saying god is alive
and he lives in your pants
but today was a good day
we talked about dirt
and stomachs designed
to chew grass off the earth
when you step with your right foot
your left one soon swings
and trips over tongues
and all the precious things
so you bury your eyebrows
like a burrowing mole
and you chew up the roots
that sleep in the soil
and it just carries on
till its out of control
when the crops are all chopped
who will fill up your bowl
when the crops are all chopped
who will fill up your bowl

sacred drums pounding
down by river beds
are just hollers to you
just highways into heads
but they're hunting this easter
for whats under my teeth
if i crack a shell
they'll come after me
this christmas they're wishing
for ways to stay heated
from what my steps have swallowed
they hope i don't breath it
this christmas they're wishing
for ways to stay heated
but from what my steps have swallowed
they hope i don't breath it
Track Name: The Heartless Archer
heartless archer
(boyd)

all you feather-headed kids
oh where did you get to
squirrels on phone wires
walk more curvey lines than you
but i know how he beats
creeps in your sleep
wakes us as soon as the sun
bears its teeth.

He's the heartless archer, oh
Someone you'll all know

a red-hooded head
lures wolves into bed
then once he's eaten
his body is stashed
filled up with stones
slowed as he go
till he's dead in his tracks
and his body is taxed

by the heartless archer, oh
someone you'll all know

though I know I can't miss the point
my body is the target
but's some fools gold
he's come to collect
your time was why its shone and sparkled

all you feather headed kids
still buried in rags
get fast to the sun
or else like me you'll drag
i know how it sneaks
lures you to sleep
then blinds us as soon
as our eyes start to peak

he's the heartless archer, oh
someone you all know
Track Name: It Wasn't a Dream
it wasn't a dream
(boyd)

well it wasn't a dream
though it seemed that way
when we swam out to sand bars
and were battered by waves
back home stealing wood from
the neighbors for fire
they're just home for one weekend a year
so you know they won't mind
mapping constellations
through the tunnels you spy
i paint myths of great twins so
i fit in your sky

we're never too far gone
we're just taking the long way home

you know it isn't a dream but
it seems that way
when we wake to the frost
and its dark all day
in electric blankets
the chimneys are block
and right when you fall into dream
there are knocks at the wall
and joined at the hip
joined at the hand
we're gone on a trip
we'll come back when we can

we're never too far gone
we're just taking the long way home
Track Name: Evergreen
evergreen
(boyd)

though you've come to be
somebody else's baby
well you know to me
you're always my first love, oh
and though time it tore
and distance slammed the door
you always will stay
the one I'm thinking of, oh
though my mind it lies
and tells me that I'm fine
and I'm better off
without you in this place
and resigned that someone new
is wrapped up in your chains
none of it can change
that the fact remains
that you've come to be
somebody else's baby
but you know to me
you're always my first love, oh
oh
