It all started with a stumble
And I get old and I get humble
The sky cracked a million ways
Making me blind

And as the trees grew higher and higher
And the fish began to fly
I went and stole some wings
And thought why can't I ...

Get in the sunrise
I want to get in the sunrise

Put the world upon your shoulder
I'll stay young while I watch everyone getting older
You can take a million years
Out of my head

But I'm starting to lose my place
In the circles that I trace
And if I let go only then
Will my face ...

Get in the sunrise
I want to get in the sunrise (x3)

(scat singing outro)

(Do you hear me now
Oh won't you hear me now)

. . .


Life is easier when one of us is dead
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey
I will wait a year
No one starts to hear an accidental fall
And they won't suspect a thing at all

Wait for the summer
We'll sleep when we wanna
Don't tell your mother
We'll leave when we
We'll leave when we wanna

And I have dreamed about it
Now I read about it
And I can't grieve about it
And I can't heeeeeeeeeey

Someone help me
Someone help me
Someone help me please
Someone help me
Someone help me
Someone help me please

It's an accidental fall
And they won't suspect a thing at all

Wait for the summer
We'll leave when we wanna
Look at your mother
Is that who ya
Is that who ya wanna?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Ooooooh Oooooh
Ooooooh Oooooh

Tell my lady here what I was drinking
And in not too long, won't she start screaming?
What a proud old man, what was she thinking?
I hear her voice sometimes, when I've been dreaming

Tell my lady here what I was dreaming
And in not too long, what was I thinking?
What a proud old man, won't she start screaming?
I hear voice sometimes, when I've been…
When I've been drinking

Rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down

I'll kill my baby with a .45
One last shot right into her head
And I'm falling falling falling down

SINK INTO THE RIVER!
SINK INTO THE RIVER!

Tell my lady here what I was drinking
I'll kill my baby with a .45
One last shot right into her head
And I'm falling falling falling down

SINK INTO THE RIVER!
SINK INTO THE RIVER!

I hear her voice sometimes
When I've been
When I've been drinking

Rising rising falling down
I'm rising fising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down
I'm rising rising falling down

. . .


I can't sleep when I think about the times we're living in
I can't sleep when I think about the future I was born into
Outsiders dressed up like Sunday morning
With no Berlin wall what the hell you gonna do

It's a new year, I'm glad to be here
It's a fresh spring, so let's sing
In 2080 I'll surely be dead
So don't look ahead, ever look ahead
It's a new year, I'm glad to be here
It's a fresh spring, so let's sing
And the moon shines bright on the water tonight
So we won't drown in the summer sound

If you find me I'll be sitting by the water fountain
Picket signs, letdowns, meltdown on Monday morning
But it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright
Cause in no time, they'll be gone, I guess I'll still be standing here

It's a new year, I'm glad to be here
It's a fresh spring, so let's sing
In 2080 I'll surely be dead
So don't look ahead, ever look ahead
It's a new year, I'm glad to be here
It's a fresh spring, so let's sing
And the moon shines bright on the water tonight
So we won't drown in the summer sound

Yeah, yeah, we can all grab at the chance to be handsome farmers
Yeah you can have twenty-one sons and be blood when they marry my daughters
And the pain that we left at the station will stay in a jar behind us
We can pickle the pain into blue ribbon winners at county contests

It's a new year, I'm glad to be here
It's a fresh spring, so let's sing
In 2080 I'll surely be dead
So don't look ahead, ever look ahead
It's a new year, I'm glad to be here
It's a fresh spring, so let's sing
And the moon shines bright on the water tonight
So we won't drown in the summer sound

Yeah, yeah, we can all grab at the chance to be handsome farmers
Yeah you can have twenty-one sons and be blood when they marry my daughters
And the pain that we left at the station will stay in a jar behind us
We can pickle the pain into blue ribbon winners at county contests

. . .


my ears are ringing
there's a tingling in the back of my throat

can't stop all the pressure building up in my head
in my head

everybody wants me
everybody needs me
everybody needs me

what's hurting me when i breath?
perhaps it's just mold on the ceiling?

everybody's coming down with the same thing
everybody's coming down with the same thing

germs!
they'll get you when you're not careful
germs
they'll get you when you're not careful
germs!
they'll get you when you're not careful

germs!
they'll get you when you're not careful
germs
they'll get you when you're not careful
germs!
they'll get you when you're not careful

Better get some medicine if you know what's good for you

. . .

Ah, Weir

[No lyrics]

. . .


Sister won't you rise with me?
Run 'way from your grave
Father set our house to flame
Please his new family

Brother won't you steal away?
Dreams of night a play
Father set our house ablaze

Blackened stones, I beg you speak
of the murderous hand
Words will never sound again
on this shadowland

Blackened sky, I beg you weep
What the day has lost
No one left to weep for us

No need to worry
We'll get some jewelry for your momma

. . .


Let me run

I've come to beg for forgiveness
So forgive me
And I'll take all that I'm given
All that I'm given
And I dream to live by your reason
I am a reason
But I read all of my speeches
All of my speeches

My workstation of the dawn
Doesn't mean that much

And I've come to beg for forgiveness
So forgive me
And I'll take all that I'm given
All that I'm given
And I try to teach by my doing
Your undoing
But my time will be your ruin
Will be your ruin

My workstation of the dawn
Doesn't mean that much

. . .


On a cold day, nothing's gunna stop us
On a cold day, you can see forever
On a cold day, nothings gunna stop us
On a cold day, you can run through metal

In a graveyard, we'll be making babies
In a graveyard, it's raining up in heaven

Silent cold, nothing's gunna stop us
Silent cold now, silent cold, silent cold

A man can be happy with the weather
As long as it doesn't snow

???
to run and hide
Wintertime is a razor blade the devil made
it's the price we pay for the summertime

. . .

Many Waves

Worms

I went out past the willow and the well
Caught my breath upon the hill
At the edge of the domain

And I went down
And further
And when I got up,
I'm at the red cave

And with that sound
As if I had been put under a spell
She led me to her whirlpool
Warm despite a winter's day

Mary's house
In the hollow of the white hazel
Rapid whirlpool
And the church of the red cave

I'm so blessed to pass the good time
With my family and the friends I love
In my short life I have met
So many people I deeply care for
