This Other World

Close your eyes, toss a coin, let it dance until it falls
Place the cards upon a table, let them sing it to us all
Fame and fortune’s counting raindrops
When you don’t have (no) shoes on
Stranger days I have had just sleeping with the TV on
Here lays the ghost of what could have been
So I’ll carve you out of this other world
I’ll carve you out of this other world
All the roads that bleed you empty
Under stars that always burn
Twist and turn these worn out tires
Making sure you can’t return
Spinning wheels past the barn stars
That leads you to the end
Hoping luck can somehow find you
In the words of a good friend
Here lays the ghost of what could have been
I’ll carve you out of this other world
I’ll carve you out of this other world
I’ll carve you out of this other world
Blue Skies (The End)
I can’t wait ‘till it’s over
All blue skies and green fields baby
I’d push it off for a cool breeze
I’ll take my chances on my own
Here’s where it ends
Just make it quick ‘coz I can’t stand blood nor pain
If this is a blue sky
I drink to stop thinking
I think that it’s time to stop
If I could change you
Take you and break you and make into something your not
Here’s where it ends
Just make it quick ‘coz I can’t stand blood nor pain
Here’s where it ends
Here’s where it ends
Here’s where it ends
Just make it quick ‘coz I can’t stand blood nor pain.
Goodbye Old Friend
Goodbye old friend and ghosts of good times past
You faded through the years and disappeared at last
Now you’re a stranger I know everything about
Looking for a reason and finding shadows of the past
Everything is changing
Everything but you
(but) When darkness falls inside my heart
I’ll go walking back to you
You’re better as a memory
less now as a friend
I look to where you used to be
These phantom pains won’t end
Then you go and lose yourself to a safer side of life
Like a pleasant dream that leaves you
In the darkest part of night.
Everything is changing
Everything but you
(but) When darkness falls inside my heart
I’ll go walking back to you
What we had was a house of cards
That we built in bars around this town
Mother’s ruin, long afternoons
Hearts confessed, times I won’t forget
No I won’t forget at all. 
Everywhere
You’re a star
And you’re the air
You’re all I breath
You’re everywhere
You’re everywhere
I see you
The things you do for me
I smoke you up
You come to me
You’re everywhere
You’re everywhere
Wherever We Are 
A cool cold embrace
Stars strangled high
A cobblestone road
Can drive you wild
Shaking your bones
‘Till your warm inside
The sharp taste of home
From a whiskey sigh
Love is a high, love is a low
Blind to misfortune and wide as is long
Sometimes a stray dog that follows you home
From here, or wherever we are
Break like the morning
Melt like the sun
Night working sleeper
Holds your stars above
Words are a stranger
In your disco head
But I’m harbored from danger
In your granite bed
Love is a high, love is a low
Blind to misfortune and wide as is long
Sometimes a stray dog that follows you home
From here, or wherever we are
Love is a high, love is a low
Blind to misfortune and wide as is long
Sometimes a stray dog that follows you home
Love is a high, love is a low
Blind to misfortune and wide as is long
Sometimes a stray dog that follows you home
From here, or wherever we are.
This Grenade Will Love You
I have to hide, have to crawl
Deep inside your heart
After everything you’ve done
I travel wide, can’t escape
Those words like butcher’s knives
The past, a rising tide
Conversations playing ‘round
My empty head, both soft and loud
This grenade will love you
You say, this grenade will love you
Each and every time
Echoes in the night, and you lose your mind
And you drown yourself in light
Then watch all sorrows taking flight
Leaving you here, a ship without a wheel
And you’re anchored to the vine
Oh grenade tell me that you’re mine
Conversations playing round
My empty head, both soft and loud
This grenade will love you
You say, this grenade will love you
Each and every time
It’s a shame you’re going nowhere
You can’t move forward, can’t remember
A troubled heart sleeps, a troubled heart sleeps
and it floats in cheap wine
Conversations playing round
My empty head, both soft and loud
In libation’s wake we sail
Try deny it, I’ll see you in hell
This grenade will love you
You say, this grenade will love you
Each and every time
Haunted House
I see your face at the window
I feel your touch when the wind blows
I hear your voice in the blackbirds
There is a ghost in this house
It doesn’t feel the same
Fear is the game that you play
and as night turns to day
A spirit in the shadow waits me
You slam a door, I close a window
You turn off a light, I light a candle
I talk to myself so I can’t hear you
I close my eyes and you’re there
It doesn’t feel the same
Fear is the game that you play
and as night turns to day
A spirit in the shadows waits me
Some twisted evil what could I expect?
A house that’s built of elder and blackthorn
Deep in the dark, I hear you laughing
So I take a match, and light up the night sky
It doesn’t feel the same
Fear is the game that you play
and as night turns to day
A spirit in the shadows waits me
It doesn’t feel the same
Fear is the game that you play
and as night turns to day
A spirit in the shadows waits me
