Track Name: The Jewel of the Northwest
Fall has opened up its book a little early this year
Pipes are frozen stove won’t cook
Light seems dirty unclear
all we’ve left still there
shining so bright always shining
Should have shown you to the door
Wearing my bathrobe and beard
Taxi’s high beams set on stun
Won't you take her to the edge and sleep on it
all we’ve left still there
shining so bright so why don’t you ever come around?
I remember when we stood
Watching the last leaf fall that year
It’d jump back up if it could
was my thinking my dear
all we’ve left still there
shining so bright shining so bright always shining

why don’t you ever come around?
Track Name: Blondes to Blue-Haired Ladies
She
She exploded in my face
Shattering who I’d been
I never realized I’d been wandering
The world
The world was black and white around her
All around
Where i’d found her
Turning blondes to blue haired ladies
Casting goddesses as extras
thinking something simple, y’know
after the last one
timed out, spaced out and broken
My eyes
My eyes can’t take the light
“Let’s go”, she said
But her car was red
“I’m really not a red car person”
And I silently applaud her
thinking something simple, y’know
after the last one
timed out, spaced out and broken
what you do to see me through
I use lasers
She said,“how primitive, try love!”
Come on, come on
a little winning won’t hurt you
She exploded in my face
Shattering who I’d been
Turning blondes to blue haired ladies
thinking something simple, y’know
after the last one
timed out, spaced out and broken
what you do to see me through
I use lasers
She said,“how primitive, try love!”
Come on, come on
a little winning won’t hurt you
She put me out of my misery
Track Name: The Light
I can write sad, sad songs till the cows come home
Ahh no it ain’t right
You can win for losing if you let it out
Self-righteous and blind
I have lied and cheated my way home to you
Bite my own tail now
Bite my tongue I love you!
This snake’s in paradise
Keep pushing me through into the light
Oh what to say?
Words just won’t withstand the light of day
It’s work without pay
You can win for losing if you let it out
Bite my own tail now
Bite my tongue I love you!
This snake’s in paradise
Keep pushing me through into the light
All those things I said I would do
I promised to you
I swear that I will
Oh won’t you believe
This time i’ll come through
I’ll do it for you
I can write sad sad songs till the cows come home
Keep pushing me through into the light
Track Name: Silver & Goldman
Silver and Goldman were friends
And they did shine
They disagreed somewhere on the line
They skipped a beat and then one fell behind

In the trenches and in the camps
Side by side
Silver, he cheated and Goldman lied
To save each other, each other’s lives

On the train ride home
The whistle blew
Silver, he saw red and Goldman blue
They drew their lines upon each other’s shoes
(oh friends they fell away)

yellow turns gold, gray turns silver
why don’t you turn to me?

Silver and Goldman were friends
And they did shine
Just like twin brothers, of like mind
Now every word they speak must have two sides

"Ah, jealousy and envy!” Goldman cried
“You’ve shown your true face and it’s gorgon-eyed!
Hearts turn to stone and I am petrified!"
(oh friends they fell away)

yellow turns gold, gray turns silver
why don’t you turn to me?
