Track Name: Heaven's Name
Believe me, I cannot bare it
When you tease, tease, tease, tease, tease me
You’re just so careless
I can’t conceive how you can stand there
And demand it
When you don’t even know my name

Jeez man, there’s no good reason
You just want please, please, please, please, pleasin’
You hit the ceiling
When you don’t get what you’re wantin’
Well, it is dauntin’
And you call me every kind of name

This summer I’m feeling haunted
You made me leave, leave, leave, leave, leave you
But you were gone too
The days are hot, the nights are longer
And so I wonder
Would you have liked me to’ve taken your name?

It’s not the first time that I have fallen
Down on my knees, knees, knees, knees, knees, babe
But I ain’t crawling
It’s all a wreck but no one’s fault yet
It’s still appalling
So I holler, what in heaven’s name?

So I holler, what in heaven’s name?
Yeah, I holler, what in heaven’s name?
Yeah, I holler, what in heaven’s name?
Track Name: Return to Spawn
We’ll keep on swimming upstream
We’ll go till we die from passing our genes
Bright red, my fangs coming in
I’m driven by something buried deep within

Yeah, I’m running upstream to settle a deal
I pause to catch my breath
Exposed to it all and flirting with death
Come lie down by my side
This life is short but the water is wide

My heart is beating still
My heart is beating still
My heart is beating still
Yeah, I’m running upstream to settle a deal

It’s time to take me to bed
Amidst the gravel and the reeds I’ll lay my head
As I close my eyes
I dream up a vision where you come alive

My heart is beating still
My heart is beating still
My heart...
Track Name: Tumbleweed
The wind blows strong here on the ranch
I can almost see the grasses dance
The raven fights against the wind
The ancient oak tree settles in

And you, you capture the wind In the strands of your hair
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Tiny cyclones are born then die
Tree limbs fall to where they lie
Foxtails cling to every thread
The dust keeps swirling overhead

And you, you capture the wind In the strands of your hair
Oh yeah, oh yeah

And we, we fall to our knees
And our bodies
Roll around like tumbleweed

The winds of change lash out tonight
This gust, just us, outrunning fright
Boughs, they bend, they creak and sway
They hold up the sky another day

But you, you capture the wind In the strands of your hair
Oh yeah, oh yeah
And we, we fall to our knees And our bodies
Roll around like tumbleweed
Track Name: Old Ravine
I threw your heart away
Flung it deep into the woods
Went looking for it today
Like an addict for his goods

Found Mother Mary
No child in her arms
And bottles that used to carry
All those promises and charms

Take me down
That old ravine
Where I threw away your love
Trying to get clean

I scoured the forest floor
Hoping to get back
Your love, my mind and more
Before the nights turned black

Footprints and broken branches
They’re coming in real close
To that man in the trenches
Chasing his own ghost

Take me down
That old ravine
Where I threw away your love
Trying to get clean

When the rains come down hard
And the earth drinks it all
I wonder if your heart
Will weather the fall

This little darkness of mine
That won’t leave me be
No matter how many times
I throw it down the old ravine

Take me down
That old ravine
Where I threw away your love
Trying to get clean
