Track Name: The Depression
The Depression
It ruined us
It ruined us
It ruined us

The Depression
It ruined us
It ruined us
It ruined us

Oh Marilyn

Everything
When the market crashed
Our hopes were dashed
We lost everything

Everything
When the winter came
We lost everything
Couldn't afford to stay

Oh Marilyn
We’d really like to keep you in
Oh Marilyn
We’d really like to keep you in

Memories
Disparate memories
Of New York
In the 1930s

Memories
Of the frozen lake
And the way we tried
To keep her safe

Oh Marilyn
There was no one left at home to let you in
Oh Marilyn
There was no one left at home to let you in
Track Name: Every Time I Try / Before It All Went Wrong
I want to hold you
But every time I try
Something keeps you
Out of reach

I want to love you
But every time I try
Something keeps
Love away
And I can feel it

So love me right now
Though it won't last
Girl don't make me try
'Cause I'll lose you forever
Every time
Every time

But every time I try
To put our love out
Like a fire
You keep me in your reach

And every time I try
To throw away my desire
You hold me
So close
And I can feel it

So love me right now
Though it won't last
Girl don't make me try
'Cause I'll lose you forever
Every time
Every time

There must be a way

To feel like I used to feel before

Before it all went wrong

There must be a way

To feel like I used to feel before

Before it all went wrong

Before I thought that love

Could never be

Before I felt your body

Next to me

There must be a way

To get back to where we were before

Before it all went wrong

There must be a way

To get back to where we were before

Before it all went wrong

Before I thought that love

Could never be

Before I felt your body

Next to me
Track Name: Ten Nights
Storybook fable is ending
As ten angels are descending
I forget that you
Are my only friend

Love is my only devotion
Ten little steps to the ocean
Ten nights to decide
Whether I can live alone

Ten nights all alone
Praying you haven’t gone
I can’t stop love
I can’t erase
What’s been written down

Storybook fable is ending
As ten angels are descending
I forget that you
Are my only friend
Track Name: Tangerine
I see
The lie through the seal
Lie through the seal
Tonight

Through the seal
I’ll make the lie my own
Mary won’t know
This time

White fields
Of rain over me
Rain over me
In time

White seas
This claim distills me
Mary won’t drink
This wine
Track Name: Lorelei
I don't want to fight your war tonight
Put away all your guns and knives

I am waiting
Lorelei

I don't want to see the streets tonight
I am so weary and so tired

I am waiting
Lorelei

Violence holds
The scene below

People act out their paces
Go through their places
Burn all the traces

We alone
Carry forth

We are two so despite what you do
Despite what you see
Don't give up
We're gonna be free
Lorelei
Track Name: Untitled No. 1
Walked away
Released from all my crimes
Walked away
Released from all my crimes

But I could never hide
What I kept inside

Walked away
Released from all my sins
Walked away
Released from all my sins

But the cruelest thing
Was all my suffering
When I held you that night
I knew it felt so right
I knew it felt so right

Walked away
Released from all my crimes
Walked away
Released from all my crimes

But I could never hide
What I kept inside
Track Name: Ray Of Light
Ray of light
I never see
Through the passing clouds
Or through the trees

When you left
Into the pouring rain
I knew I’d never
See you again

Ray of light
Won’t shine through
When love is through
When love is through

Late one night
I heard you at my door
But I pretended like
I wasn’t home

Please forgive
Me for what I’ve done
But you know I would’ve done it
Like I did before

Ray of light
Won’t shine through
What can I do
What can I do

Ray of light
I never see
Through the passing clouds
Or through the trees

When you left
Into the pouring rain
I knew I’d never
See you again

Ray of light
Won’t shine through
When love is through
When love is through
Track Name: Battle Of Saratoga
Three o’clock in the morning
Snowing and I can’t go home

Coming down in Kingston
Christmas Eve the roads are closed

Just like Walter Gibson
Knowing what the Shadow knows

And on their way
From Saratoga
They burned our fields
They burned our homes

Candy shop quartet
Free coffee and chocolate

Dreaming of the pine needles
Waiting for my next set

Hallucinating wonders
Drying out like Benedict

And on their way
From Saratoga
They burned our fields
They burned our homes

They burned our homes
They burned our homes

Commander of the troops
I tried to capture Bemis Heights

Talking in tongues
They couldn’t get to me on time

Forced to retreat
I turned and ran to safety in the pines

And on their way
From Saratoga
They burned our fields
They burned our homes
Track Name: From The Dust / Blue Line
From the dust
I come
To the the dust
I return

From the dust
I come
To the the dust
I return

From the roofs
I cry
From the roofs
I cry

From the roofs
I cry
From the roofs
I cry

From the dust
I come
To the the dust
I return

From the dust
I come
To the the dust
I return

--

Take me to the blue line
Take me to the blue line

Lift me up
Drop me down
Into the middle
Of the cold, cold ground

She was born
In a diamond shack
Three wise men
Said she's coming back

Take me to the blue line
Take me to the blue line

Through purple skies
And seas of red
Silver raindrops
Fill with dread

She’s so lean
From a golden hue
Bursting forth
Coming back to you

Take me to the blue line
Take me to the blue line
Track Name: Spiritual
Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
My love wasn’t true
Now all I have is you
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone

Jesus
If you hear my last breath
Don't leave me here
Left to die a lonely death
I know I have sinned
But lord I’m suffering
Jesus, oh Jesus
If you hear my last breath

Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone
My love wasn’t true
Now all I have is you
Jesus, oh Jesus
I don’t want to die alone

All my troubles
All my pain
Will leave me once again
