Track Name: vacation
On a bus from Market Station
Seat way in the back
Flight takes off at 9 o'clock
Not sure when I'll be back

Woke up early could not get
The sleep out from my eyes
Dreamt the plane had lost an engine
Fallen from the sky

Put me in a jar
Toss me in the air
I'm lighter than a feather now
Lighter than the air
I know your love is around me
I can feel it everywhere
And when I fall it all will disappear

All along the beaches
They were cleaning up the spill
You said the view was best at dawn
From the bench upon the hill

We sat in silence
Never felt the need to say a word
The city speaks but far away
And barely can be heard
Track Name: sweet rose
Goodbye Sweet Rose
You've gotta die all alone
But before we go our separate ways
There's a couple of things I gotta say:
It's been a long and beautiful day
Since we hit the road
Track Name: meet me in the middle
Meet me in the middle
No ones gonna find you there
I drop upon your tongue
It's a little bitter
No ones gonna find you there

This is not my battle
Some lunatics are waging a war
We circle round the streetlight
Laughing and spinning
No ones gonna find you there
No ones gonna find you there

We're swimming to the island
Digging for the diamond
Flying on a spaceship

I draw the line there

Your gonna be an old man
Whisper to the world map
Secrets of the house cat

Meet me in the middle
No ones gonna find you there
And if your gonna come
The sooner the better
No ones gonna find you there
No ones gonna find you there

Your gonna be an old woman
Whisper to the house cat
Secrets of the world map
Track Name: up in the attic
No source, no name
I landed on your planet there
And dragged my days away

The grass grew tall
Driving by you couldn't see the
Worn down clapboard walls

And we broke too slow
I watched us from a distance
Like some television show

Oh, but now that house is gone
And I walk the streets the whole night long
But I never get lonely, I'm feeling good
Never had much use for the rest of the world

The days are short
The trees have lost their color
See the geese down from the North

No sense of weight
I'll land somewhere with someone else
Some undiscovered place

And if she lets me stay
I know just what I'm gonna say
You can't break my heart
It won't do no good
I put it up in the attic
With the rest of the world
