Pick Up the Bricks you’ve got nothing to say you’ve got nothing to do do you? cuz you don’t care you keep staring at me you’ve got things you’re scared to death to say and all my blank pages make you think again all my blank pages make you think again you don’t have to drive me far just tell me where you are confidence is like the morning sun warms you up, blinds you, then she’s gone confidence is like the evening sun… you don’t have to be set free just tell me who you wanna be pick up the bricks and throw them far show them who you are

The Smallest Earthquake i’ll hold you like the sun’s going down i’ll hold you like the sun’s going down i’ll hold you like our train’s coming round i’ll hold you like the lost can be found tell me what you didn’t want to say tell me that there’s gonna be the greatest earthquake cuz we’re going down yeah we’re going down a last dance for magic i’m climbing up your walls do you feel the same? or is it the smallest earthquake? tell me where you think you wanna go tell me if we’re ever gonna go sing it like you can, sing it to a man sing it if you want me to know a last wish for magic i’m climbing up your walls do you feel the same? or is it the smallest earthquake? tell me that the tide’s turning round tell me what I’m gonna find is what it’s always found are we wiser now? or just beaten down? i’ll hold you like the sun’s going down i’ll hold you when the sun’s going down i’ll hold you if our train’s coming round i’ll hold you if our love’s in the ground if you know there’s nothing deep inside your walls in the end despite the pain the force will always remain of the smallest earthquake

Blue Shadows 04:23
Blue Shadows no matter how no matter how hard i try it’s another cloud floated into the sky car wrecks scattered everywhere the more i cruise, the less i care taking cracks at a liberty bell and buying when i ought to sell crawling into blue shadows and close my heavy eyes why do i stay in blue shadows i thought i loved the light it’s not right i’m sending up a storm today so i don’t have to make a change wildflowers are free pushing through the desert in harmony crawling into blue shadows it’s the easy way you know i love the blue shadows you know it’s just today every day how do i write with blue shadows? or do i write a lie? do the wildflowers lie?

The Kite 03:29
The Kite historic preservation if a kite could choose where it blew i would attach myself to you what am i to do? what am i to do? holding your hand hanging on to what we can if the kite could choose one key you’re the one i want for electricity what am i to do? what am i to do? cracking open everything sitting still and listening i love who you are I love that you comprehend and take a stand, oh the gravity the way that we push and pull, the balancing, oh is this all about polarity? forever is coming soon, let’s sing to the moon historic what am i to do? what am i to do? holding your hand hanging on to what we can

Walk of Fire 05:31
Walk of Fire kate, kate, kate do you wanna dance? let’s step out of our wounded skin and give ourselves a chance look at your heart—it’s a cinder block and i’m a frozen lake i never learned to do the shake but i’ve gotta start someday you did the walk of fire something new you did the walk of fire you needed to you did the walk of fire there’s no flame like the spark that can start you up kate was in pain, and so was i with her was it desperation, or was it in the stars? or was my saving grace listening to ZZ Top? you did the walk of fire something new you did the walk of fire needed to you did the walk of fire now there’s nothing to wait for if change is here then you know it’s here to stay if change is here then burn it all away we did the walk we did the walk of fire now there’s nothing to wait for (and hey—you will be strong)

Goner 03:11
Goner we’re gone yeah we’re gone yes we’re gone we’re gone petrified in amber is how i know i’m free wash embalming fluid down with a fifth of harmony desperation is understated going home is overrated when you’re gone you’re gone like transylvanian prospectors desperate for a name we might find what we’re looking for but we’ll never be the same cuz we’re wild yeah we’re wild inside you, the high you won’t listen to inside you, this time, you’ve got nothing to listen to the desperation is understated going home is overrated when you’re gone you’re gone if you’re gone then you’re gone well we’re gone yes we’re gone
