Track Name: My Lovely Lady
my lovely lady, take a bow
'cause you can't fight it anyhow
now you're just another person standing all alone
you ain't so special anymore
shaken wall and broken doors
but there's something about you that makes me feel so home

i see them laughing in your face
fingers glaring pure disgrace
but they don't know you like i know so many do
you're so pretty and so smart
so why d'you pull yourself apart?
come inside, sing a different song or two

wake up now, 'cause you ain't flawless, baby
your hair's a mess, your dress has come undone
but i think that your heart is sweet
so call it off and sound retreat
and be a little wiser with your gun

my lovely lady, if they knew
all the loving you could do
or if they turned to face the dirt upon your heels
your abandonment has marred
oh how cruel your disregard
but they might find your love to be so real

wake up now, you've got to reach out, baby
even though ain't no one reaching back
'cause i know that your heart is good
and baby, you're misunderstood
your smiling eyes will make up where you lack

my lovely lady, take a bow
'cause i still love you anyhow
i stand beside you even if i stand alone
you ain't so perfect anymore
shaken wall and blown out doors
but there's something about you that makes me feel so home
Track Name: About-Face
raise a voice, spill a drink
should've walked right out the door
soaking down, a slow blink
and things ain't the same no more
whistle yelps, all aboard
where the tracks point toward the woods
fend 'em off, swing a sword
like the chicken train that could

so if you're seeking a sculpture's cold embrace
archaic smile upon her face
don't be surprised if she loves you
then leaves a dusty about-face

write a book, lay a law
and then dance around that tune
tell your ma', tell your pa'
that he's a hundred years too soon

so if you discover some prints pressed in the paste
you hoped would hold a friend in place
don't be surprised if they lead you
from a muddy about-face

paint a town, run amok
could've broke right down the door
should've stayed, should've stuck
'cause that wood ain't weak no more
read a book, train a jaw
and then dance around that rhyme
tell your ma', tell your pa'
that it's dawning right on time

so if you're craving a spur to light your face
to chisel a scene upon a vase
don't be surprised if you wake up
don't be surprised if you wake up
don't be surprised if you wake up
to a brilliant about-face
Track Name: Pray For Rain
young man, dig your hole
further down you roll
there's no way out of here
and it'll do you no good to complain
young man, you had better pray for rain

young man heed my word
or you'll end up interred
i've told you a thousand times
it brings nothing but pain
young man, you had better pray for rain

i can read through your lies when you try and act tough
you've had ten thousand highs but that's not good enough
face down in the sand, spaced out in the sun
you pray for the rain, but the rain won't come

young man, won't you learn
play and you get burned
don't try and mask it again
you're just smearing the stain
young man, you had better pray for rain

i can see your demise, yet you try and act tough
you've had ten thousand highs but that's not good enough
face down in the sand, spaced out in the sun
you pray for the rain, but the rain won't come

young man, it's too late
you've walked right through that gate
and if somehow i knew that
you'd just wash down the drain
young man, i wouldn't pray for rain
Track Name: Already Free
drinking from a blazing sun, blazing sun
looks like someone's on the run, on the run
well i don't know about this dream
but i sure can fake it
and baby, you've got what i need
but i'm already free

loving light and flooded cries, flooded cries
splash upon my closing eyes, closing eyes
well i know about my love
but i just can't wake it
and baby, you've got what i need
but i'm already free

i've got to find some sky to breathe, sky to breathe
there's still a lot of world to weave, world to weave
well i don't know about this dream
but i sure can't shake it
and baby, baby, baby, you've got what i need
but i'm already free
