Track Name: Sassafras Ode
“sassafras ode”

this water where i played as a child
in your arms you would toss me and smile
these waters rise and recede
your heart beats in the chesapeake
river bends wide and deep to the sea
here you rest in her calm sovereignty
winds whispering on the grass
your heart beats for the sassafras
Track Name: Boomfront Town
"Boomfront Town"

tossed cigarette
on a sage brush stretch
this truck it groans passed boarded homes
yes i might be free
from such captivity
these unlucky ones
restless forgotten sons
a two lane street
a boom-front town
the sky is grey
let’s go on down
gas station lights
offer tourist sights
we just move along
dial in a country song
he sings for the everyday
trials that may come our way
not this time not us
the lucky ones the prosperous
a two lane street
a boom-front town
the sky is grey
let’s go on down (2x)
Track Name: Diamonds
“Diamonds”

garage door is open, smoke from cigarettes
billow toward the moon to the claps of castanets
a chorus of voices fill these junkyard walls
guitars and congas echo in the hall
lost all the feeling in our fingers
diamonds in frozen air linger
winter is upon us, now we're the singers in the band
warm below the ground, clapping our hands
Track Name: Second Born
“Second Born”

did you think that i was listenin’
as the forrest wind came whistlin’
a story someone shares
peels back removes the layers
tell of ghosts inside your home
speaking softly as you’ve grown
why her, why not me?
born second, luckily
leaves fall twirling from their vines
caught in pavement trapped in time
you feel just like them
breaking from their fragile stem
taking care of baby brother
both a sister and a mother
he has you to thank
stayed afloat while all else sank
young but, grown too fast
second born
nurtured from the past
like blooms from the ash
Track Name: Big Green Door
“Big Green Door”

got a big green door
but not a lot o money
honey honey ain't life so funny
paint peeling from the
yellow siding
dilapidated porch
is so inviting
got a large plot
but we use just a little
we sing along with
the girl on the fiddle
got two stories
and half a house (2x)
narrow living
in our cozy nest
sparrows singing
ain't we so blessed
got a large plot
but we use just a little
we sing along with
the girl on the fiddle
got two stories
and half a house (2x)
Track Name: Snowy Grave
“Snowy Grave”

nature spells
overrule
our little lives
our feeble tools
i went down, caught in a tidal wave
just wanna get out, out from this snowy grave
when we climb
on her throne
providence
remains unknown
shifting ground
underneath
swallows swift
with snarling teeth
i went down, caught in a tidal wave
just wanna get out, out from this snowy grave
mother i can see your face
lift me up
from this place
mother cast me from your womb
It shall be-come my tomb
