Track Name: Little Chunks Of(f) This Heart
Wild as a wave,
The weight of the moon on the tide tells me we can’t stay.

The poor inhabitant below,
Is quick to learn but wise to know.

Keenly felt the friendly glow as follies laid him low.
And would you accept a compliment,
Expressed desire is their only intent.

And I’m tired of trying to impress you,
You can take little chunks off my heart if you want to.
And I’m tired of trying to find little tricks to impress you,
You can take little chunks of this heart if you want to.
And I’m tired to trying to find the words to impress you,
Just take little chunks of this heart if you want to.

And I’m tired of trying to impress you,
You can take little chunks off my heart if you want to.
And I’m tired of trying to find little tricks to impress you,
You can take little chunks of this heart if you want to.
And I’m tired to trying to find the words to impress you,
Just take little chunks of this heart if you want to.

And I’m tired of trying to chase this action,
It never really leads to any kind of satisfaction.
Track Name: The Ballad Of Hollis Brown
Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
With his wife and five children
And his cabin broken down

You looked for work and money
And you walked a ragged mile
You looked for work and money
And you walked a ragged mile
Your children are so hungry
That they don't know how to smile

Your baby's eyes look crazy
They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve
Your baby's eyes look crazy
They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve
You walk the floor and wonder why
With every breath you breathe

You prayed to the Lord above
Oh, please send you a friend
You prayed to the Lord above
Oh, please send you a friend
Your empty pockets tell ya
That you ain't a-got no friend

Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That's hangin' on the wall

Your babies are crying louder
It's pounding on your brain
Your babies are crying louder
It's pounding on your brain
Your wife's screams are stabbin' you
Like the dirty drivin' rain

Your brain is a-bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your brain is a-bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That you're holdin' in your hand

There's seven breezes a-blowin'
All around the cabin door
There's seven breezes a-blowin'
All around the cabin door
Seven shots ring out
Like the ocean's pounding roar

Seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
Somewheres in the distance
Seven new people born
Track Name: Worlds Apart
As I went outside one morning,
To breathe the air and bring the dawn in.
The sunlight shone upon my moment and in that very instant you could do me no harm.

They built these walls made out of stone to last,
But with open heart you know I have no past anymore.

Now it seems like we are worlds apart.
Now it just seems like we are worlds apart.

They built these walls made out of stone to last,
But with open heart you know I have no past anymore.

Now it seems like we are worlds apart.
Now it just seems like we are worlds apart.
Now it seems like we are worlds apart.
Now it just seems like we are worlds apart.
Track Name: Where Will It Go
You make me want to build a pretty little fire for you.
Down by the seaside,
Honey when I’m around you,
Felt like I could make something better than just dreams come true.

Oh where, where, where, where, will it go, nobody knows.
Oh where, where, where, where, will it go, nobody knows.

You make me want to build a pretty little fire for you.
Down by the seaside,
Honey when I’m around you,
Felt like I could make something better than just dreams come true.

Oh where, where, where, where, will it go, nobody knows.
Oh where, where, where, where, will it go, nobody knows.

Oh now, time is running out I don’t think I’m gonna make it.
Oh now, why does it have to be this way?
Oh now, time is running out I don’t think I’m gonna make it.
Oh now, why does it have to be this way?
Track Name: Who I Am
[I wonder what you mean when you use the word ‘I’
I’ve been very interested in this problem for a long long time]

You are not prepared for what’s coming.
You’re not prepared at all,
For this world.

[As is well known we are now in the process of destroying our environment,
As a result to conquer it and master it.
A stranger and afraid in a world I never made.
A stranger and afraid in a world I never made.
An ego inside a bag of skin located mostly in the skull halfway between the ears and a little way between the eyes]

And does free will even exist?
Or is the key to be free of our resistance.

You look scared and worried got some trouble getting go,
I was trying to lend a hand but I don’t really know who I am.

You look scared and worried got some trouble getting go,
I was trying to lend a hand but I don’t really know who I am.

You look scared and worried got some trouble getting go,
I was trying to lend a hand but I don’t really know who I am.

And it’s so hard to know what’s right,
And it’s so hard to know when to run and when to fight.
But I can’t give up,
I can’t give up on you,
No matter what I do.
