Track Name: Hundred-Year Woods
Ten up, ten down
No one makes a sound
Take me to where
Bird traps veil the ground

Well I've lived my life
As the crow does fly
Been here for years
Still be once I die

Let me sleep
Let me be
Let me know
Let me go

Rest my bones
In the hundred-year woods
Plant the dog and cross
Just underfoot

Well owls don't migrate
So neither do I
Been here for years
Still be once I die

Let me sleep
Let me be
Let me know
Let me go

Ten up, ten down
No one makes a sound
Track Name: In The Cut
Faded picket fence
Little yard, two cars with a matching dent
Is it heaven sent or a divers debt?

What did Arthur say
He would buy some day for you and yours?
Did that offer pay off at all?

Hold that line if you want it
Get you mind right
Hold that line if you want it
Don't give up the fight

Hold that line if you want it
Get you mind right
Hold that line if you want it
Don't give up the fight

Were we lulled to sleep
By the yarns we spun our selves to keep
The ones we gave the leash at an arms reach?

What is done is done
it ain't no good for anyone to run
You know the face they fear is the mask they wear

Hold that line if you want it
Get your mind right
Hold that line if you want it
Don't give up the fight

Hold that line if you want it
Get your mind right
Hold that line if you want it
Don't give up the fight
Or dare turn a blind eye
There's worse things than scraping by

In the cut I'll play
In the cut I'll lay and lick my wounds
Gonna make my way where the heartache blooms
Track Name: St. Joe's Spitting Image
On the shore line
Of a lake that cradles my love
Stands a dam to hold back
The bleeding waters that no longer run

At the northeastern banks
Sit a dozen old shanty's or so
Each filled to the brim
With the dreams and trials I can't out grow

In the morning
It feels like they're comin' for me
At noon time
It feels like they're comin' for me

Still they'll never catch up
If you stay by my side
And if they call to you often
Just open yours eyes

In the mirror
A reflection, all but in name
The eyes, the ears, the thoughts, the fears
All the same

Three decades behind
What mountains to climb await you?
Will you do as I say?
Or will you do as I do?

In the morning
It feels like they're comin' for me
At noon time
It feels like they're comin' for me
In the twilight
It feels like they're comin' for me
When the moon's high
It feels like they're comin' for me

Still they'll never catch up
If you stay by my side
And if they call to you often
Just open your eyes
