Track Name: I Dreamt Blues
I go to work in the morning
I go to work every day
though the boss gave me a warnin’
I get run down by the foreman
I dream through my mornings
I dream through my days

You know I come home
by the sight of cigarette circles glowin'
to go blind was fine when we were young
but now dear, your disguise is fallin'
so I'm up again the next morning
an' you and I, we keep it that way

The dull in the television dream
distracts me
after work what do I got left to believe?
my soul's replaced by machines
I am static in the evening
and back at it by morning

No I don’t catch the politics
the sport of the presidents
none of these days, news do stick
I’ll admit I'm apathetic
does my word matter anyway?
war or not, work’s enough each day

Well those days I spoke out my choice
most days I try to avoid it
now I can hardly hear that voice
it's driven outta me each day
I dreamt away my mornings
I dreamt away my days
Track Name: Carry Me, Home
Drag my body down from the mountain peak
take a breath before I'm seen
I rig a rope somewhere no one knows
like the lonely climb
up a scaffold

Close my eyes thinkin' of my childhood dream
easy when mama's your one and only stream
washin' away any sorrow you have seen
hold on tight, don't lose sight
of the beam

Take me, home
Take me, home
Take me, home

Scold the boys up the rope
scream inside from down up through my throat
the golden light hides the evening moan
eaten my pride through my spine
and bone

Carry me, home
Carry me, home
Carry me, home

Drag my body where the mountain meets the blue
take a breath before you're through
I rigged a rope somewhere no one knew
