Track Name: Spokane
Boarded up windows, the old bridge sags a little more
My uncle still lives past the quiet river on the left

You want to be the master of your own aching plan
Crossing the ocean of existence inside your head
Indulge and skip to the garden of whatever pleasure
In Spokane, WA you live your life your own way

Remember be here now

Moments come and flee time don't wait for you and me
Each milestone that you see is a mountain I have climbed slowly
I think I'll do my lines it's up to you how you live your life
I think I'll take my time, my heart is beating with your mind

Remember be here now

Move to an abandoned life with rivers and hills and a fishing knife
Bring the one who treats you right, but only you can make your life

Remember be here now
Track Name: Le Moyne & Hoyne
Miles and miles I rode these tree-lined roads to a dead end
Train tracks on my left and a cold one in my lap
Take me to the days where there was nothing to hold us back but the roads

Lives keep getting pushed in my way why can't I push them past
Summer whistling Least Sandpiper holding my mind intact
Muddy leaves and grass stained jeans acquired on the way back from the bar

But the night is running away again
Wild hearts can't be broken
We don't have to resolve anything tonight

Midnight walks and liquored-talks of everything way back when
Every word gallops to her like the first time out of the pen
I wish I had more to show with all my time and money spent but this is all

Leave me standing freely under the stars in my own head
It's the only time I can't control myself when I'm the only one left
We're all tortured souls it's just that some can't hold it back and here we are

But the night is running away again
Wild hearts can't be broken
We don't have to resolve anything tonight

Carry me out the backdoor when it's time to go
You'll know I'm ready to leave when I'm lying on the floor
You're the only one I think about when I am in despair
Now I'm gonna fold my hand, can't win with a pair

Carry me out the backdoor when it's time to go
You'll know I'm ready to leave when I'm lying on the floor
You're the only one I think about when I am in despair
Now I'm gonna fold my hand, can't win with a pair

Carry me out the backdoor when it's time to go
You'll know I'm ready to leave when I'm lying on the floor
You're the only one I think about when I am in despair
Now I've lost everything in me, no reason to care
Track Name: Downtown
Let's all go downtown
And find someone we can hold on to for a couple hours
You don't know what you're looking for
Till it stabs you in the eye or passes you by

You dream of a perfect night
Where you are so warm and held so tight

We are who we want to be
Whether that is tired or free
We get lost inside our heads
We get so lost

We had come so far before we fell apart
We lost track of everything that we had
So let's all go downtown
And find someone we can hold on to for a couple hours

We are who we want to be
Whether that is tired or free
We get lost inside our heads
We get so lost

We are who we want to be
We're lonely and free
We're all on our way out
So let's all go downtown

And find someone we can hold on to
Track Name: Ghouls & Ghosts
Pour the red wine so I can revel in my grave
And let the demons in us run for their escape
I'm coming home once the moon is looking full
I'm coming home and breaking bottles on the floor
Cause I'm a ghost

We're just ghouls and ghosts
With no remorse
We're just ghouls and ghosts
And you're home alone
And you're home alone

Board the doors and windows lock the stairs and the fireplace
Hide behind the curtains use the sheets to cover your face
The booze is hitting the bones and you should run for your escape
The booze is hitting the bones and now a haunting is taking place
Cause I'm a ghost

We're just ghouls and ghosts
With no remorse
We're just ghouls and ghosts
And you're home alone
And you're home alone

Cause I'm a ghost

We're just ghouls and ghosts
With no remorse
We're just ghouls and ghosts
And you're home alone
And you're home alone
Track Name: See You Today
Took a trip while unfolding chapters
Can't get away for the day
You are all that I got
And I wouldn't want it any other way

Hold the phone, I'm almost home
If I don't look both ways while I'm on the way
You know I won't make it home to see you today
Hey, Yeah, ooh ooh, ooh ooh

Looking for a sense of calm center
Where here and now is always right
You are all that I need
To help me through the night

Hold the phone, I'm almost home
If I don't look both ways while I'm on the way
You know I won't make it home to see you today
Hey, Yeah, ooh ooh, ooh ooh
