Track Name: Burning Man
age ain't nothing but a state of mind
but it's the state I'm in this time
pain ain't nothing but a waste of time
but I'll be wasted tonight

and I'm thinking of sleeping it off
and I'm dreaming of breaking the law
and I know I'm old, Nicole
I know I'm old

time ain't nothing but a point of view
and the view from here's just fine
white ain't nothing but another hue
your tears a sparkling wine

and you're thinking of sleeping with me
and you're dreaming of what you wanna be
and you're not too old, Nicole
you're not too old

sane ain't nothing but a point of view
and the view from here's just fine
pain ain't nothing but a waste of time
and I'll be wasted tonight

and I'm thinking of breaking the truth
I've been dreaming of sleeping with you
and I'm not too old, Nicole
I'm not too old
Track Name: But Anyway
say goodbye to living your life in the side view
waiting up nights for the breakthrough
spreading your love around
and it's a shame to remember all the faces you once knew
forgetting all the places you've been to
sober with nothing to say
but anyway

I still love you
standing on the corner in your suede boots
speaking like I wasn't standing near you
soft without making a sound
so say goodbye to thinking that I wasn't there for you
acting like I never had a faint clue
foggy at the end of the day
but anyway

we could try to erase each others names from the rear view
say the last few months were laced with voodoo
burning in a tin roof hut
so say goodbye to leaving your number in the bathroom
drinking champagne from a glass shoe
because this season love songs don't pay
but anyway
Track Name: Chapel Hill Waltz
you haven't been yourself for some time
you've been locked up inside
sometimes I hear you cry
but I can smell Fall in the air
and I can see snow crown your hair
darling I'll take you anywhere

oh sweet Carolina
I'm hell bent on climbing your Chapel Hill tonight
sweet Carolina
I'll follow the white lines

I haven't been myself for some days
I've been dropping hints around
like Easter eggs
but I can smell Spring in the air
and I can see rain crown your hair
darling I'll have you anywhere

oh sweet Carolina
I'm hell bent on climbing your Chapel Hill tonight
sweet Carolina
I'll follow the white lines

I haven't been myself for seven days
I blame it on Summer rain
you blame it on cocaine

oh sweet Carolina
I'm hell bent on climbing your Chapel Hill tonight
sweet Carolina
I'll follow the white lines
Track Name: Thereziene
I have sown my dreams on land, sea and sky
but I reap nothing without you
put your precious feet on the passenger side
and we'll drive until we find a brighter view

all the leaves are falling
the harvest season calls us home
as Autumn takes her leisure
will death give way to pleasure?
will we be buried in the snow?

and I forgot to tell you
I don't need you to feel alone
and I don't have to follow
to feel lost on this endless road

I have shown my need and my fearful side
but I fear nothing like regret
put your hands in mine and we'll drive through the night
wake up where the seasons never set

the ocean breeze is calling
the redwood trees are taller than all
our fears far behind us
no one will ever find us
if we just forget to call

and I forgot to tell you
I don't need you to feel alone
and I don't have to follow
to feel lost on this endless road

I have sown my dreams on land, sea and sky
but I reap nothing but regret
put your hand in mine and we'll drive through the night
wake up where the seasons never set
Track Name: April is the Cruellest Girl
there's flies in the kitchen
snakes in the weeds
I lie like a dog
but I sleep like a sheep shorn new
here next to you
you know I wanna sink
in your eyes so blue

I walk like a monkey
but I talk like a man
I ain't the best
but I'll do the best I can for you
the best that I can do
you know I wanna swim
in your eyes so blue

I'll sleep in on Sunday
and I'll work through the dawn
I'll trim all your bushes
and I'll cover your lawn with a new
red rose tattoo
and then I'll water it
with your eyes so blue

I swallowed the water
but I choked on the pill
I sent for the doctor
and he said "April can be cruel"
so I sent for you
you know I wanna drink
from your eyes so blue

I'll sing for my supper
and I'll steal for my beer
I'll build you an ark
you know it might take a year or two
but we could start a zoo
and then we'll drift away
on your eyes so blue
Track Name: Monday Morning
go to work
go to bed
find a place to lay my head
church on Sunday wash away my sins
Monday morning do it all again

wash the dishes
mow the lawn
find a girl to call my own
church on Sunday wash away our sins
Monday morning do it all again

go to work
go to bed
pay the mouths and feed the debt
someone pulled the plug on Uncle Sam
Monday morning do it all again

plant a seed
plant a stone
water each, see which one grows
someone pulled a gun on IH-310
Monday morning do it all again

go to work
go to bed
find a girl to hold my hand
spend our sunsets lying on the sand
Monday morning do it all again
