Track Name: Wounded bird
Blown to the ground
Like a wounded bird
I'm blinking at the moon
And tears well in my eyes.
Peering through the darkness
Filled with molten stars
I'm trying to get in peace
With my troubled mind.

Blown to the ground
Like a wounded bird
A tangle of broken feathers
A mess of bones & twisted guts.
Does the waning light
Know about me
When every night
Turns into another day.

Blown to the ground
Like a wounded bird
I face the unknown
In the shifting of the season.
Fear has a scent
Like love does
May all my troubles
Soon be over.
Track Name: Stolen Horse (in my quiet way)
I feel like I ride a stolen horse
& I don’t even know its name
I Keep my distance from the herd
Free of shame free of pain

I don’t own much of anything
I make the most from what I have
It is all kind of making sense
Sort of falling into place

I’ll go on in my quiet way
Till death finds me

I feel like I walk in a dead man’s shoes
& I don’t even know his face
I can see with my eyes closed

I see clearly down the road
I see a day the dead will rise
To say Jesus ain’t coming back

I’ll go on in my quiet way
Till death finds me
Track Name: Westbound train
Arriving from an iron horse journey
Of a westbound train
My eyes & ears are my mouth
My hunger unrestrained.
My head last night
Hung out the window
While all behind me died.

The cool night air
Whipped my face
While all sleep left my eyes.
Emotion coming on to me
Like a Leonard Cohen song.

My bags lie solemn
Crushed & crumpled
Piled in the corner
Anxious to be free again
While I roam the quarter.

Arriving from an iron horse journey
Of a westbound train
I'm nowhere yet but I feel
I'm back where I belong.
Emotion coming on to me
Like a Leonard Cohen song.
Track Name: Leave me where I fall
I'm strolling along the river
Throwing stones in the still water
Colors have come to the leaves
Apples are gone in the orchards
There I stand on shaking legs
I don’t trust my balance
Shadows are long upon the fields
The birds they're growing quiet

Will you shoot me where I stand
& leave me where I fall

There I stand beyond belief
Looking in vain for solid ground
Humming songs of an old dead time
Words feel bad in my mouth

Will you shoot me where I stand
& leave me where I fall
