Track Name: Middle Of The Night
Takes a toll
To be free
Take a carry-all and
Pack it up with no more than you need

Up in the middle of the night
I am waiting for the light
We could make a little fire
From this fallen cedar tree

Pick up soles
Chicken feet
Underneath the truck I'm
Hanging on and hell am I beat

Up in the middle of the night
I am waiting for a sign
I could take a little lie down
A hundred feet beneath the sea

Dig a hole
Dig it deep
Do be good enough
To let a brother get a good night's sleep

Up in the middle of the night
I am witnessing a crime
And these lunatics and liars
Are calling out to let it be
Track Name: Green Fire
I don't need any proof
I can feel it in my gut
This old woman bears an evil omen
Bring a black horse out the front

Take her to the bridge, throw her in the water
If she don't sink like she ought to
Take her to the town, put her on the pyre
And when she burns we all get burnt
By waves of green fire

I'm an ordinary man
I've got a right to be heard
These ashes bear an incantation
Scrape them up from the dirt

Take them to the bridge, throw them in the water
If they don't sink like they ought to
Take them to the town, put them on the pyre
And when they burn we all get burnt
By waves of green fire
Track Name: Up Above My Head
Up above my head I hear music in the air
Up above my head I hear music in the air
Up above my head I hear music in the air
And I really do believe, really do believe
In the Lord somewhere

All in my home I hear music in the air
All in my home I hear music in the air
Up above my head I hear music in the air
And I really do believe, really do believe
In the Lord somewhere
Track Name: Working Hard
All you hard working people
Will be delivered
And you lazy boys
Can sit there and shiver in the cold
Try not to get sick or old

Working hard and getting nowhere
Coming in on a wing and a prayer
Don't even know if I want to go there
If at the end of the road
There's a penniless soul like you to meet me

Just a tumbler of vodka
And a pillow of feathers
Is all I need to be ready to weather the storm
I feel like I've been here before

Working hard and getting nowhere
Coming in on a wing and a prayer
Don't even know if I want to go there
If at the end of the road
There's a penniless soul
There's a penniless soul
There's a penniless soul
Track Name: Don't Want To Be Loved
You never listen when I sing
Or let me shelter beneath your wings

Dear Lord above
I just don't want to be loved by you

We don't talk much anymore
I'm sick of fighting and I'm tired of war

Dear Lord above
I just don't want to be loved by you

It's just a game that you played
It's time to abandon any plans we made

Dear Lord above
I just don't want to be loved
I just don't want to be loved
I just don't want to be loved
I just don't want to be loved
Track Name: Everything's Broke
Thought I'd been saved
Crest of a wave
I fell and hit the shore
Lost some friends
Ne'er do wells
I ain't even going to show these people
Out the door

Everything's broke
Why can't it be just like it used to be
There's still some hope
That you're the person that's going to
Fix it all up for me

Thought I could choose
What to keep and what to lose
These useless things I've accrued
They become scars
They'll break your heart
If you can mend them don't
Throw them away
Track Name: Blue Bear
You know there’s nothing in the woods
But what’s that sound?
Maybe better turn back now
Maybe better turn back now
Feeling like I’ve been here before
In my déjà vu
Maybe better turn back now
Maybe better turn back now

There may be troubles on the way
But that blue bear is more afraid of you

I wish I could call
And you’d appear
To calm me down
You gotta calm me down
I wish I could feel
Right again
You gotta calm me down
You gotta calm me down

Wait until the blue bear’s gone
And hear the bluebird sing
You got to get right up
And you got to brush yourself down
There’s no shame in feeling down down down
You got to get right up
And you got to brush yourself down
Track Name: Old Timers
Here's some old timers
And they're going to have a party
And we're all invited
There's some cherry tobacco
'Cause I stole it from your packet
And there's coal on the fire

Old age waits for no man
I can't wait for dreamland

Here's a warm blanket
And when someone sings a song you start to
Gaze at the night sky
And it all seems so pretty that you know that you are blessed
Just be here and see this
Track Name: See Green
Lover, you don't need to suffer
Troubles, buried in the rubble
Nor should you feel
Like a spoke in the wheel
'Cause I see green

You get blue and yell oh you must hate me
You see red but I know you you'll see green
See green

Summer's written in the colours
One shade looks just like the other
You can feel free
To disagree
'Cause I see green

Brother you're just like a lover
Six of one and half a dozen
Laughing at me
Beautifully
'Cause I see green
Track Name: Wait Til The Last Bullet Falls
There's intruders in the store
Shouting 'everybody get down'
So we hit the floor
I don't feel safe
Behind the wall
I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls
I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls

And it's the summertime
I smell your sweet perfume
It lingers on my clothes and in my hair
And if you cover me with lime
Under a strawberry moon
Lay me down in the clothes that I'm wearing

And if I ran
I could reach the door
But there are so very few things worth dying for
And if my time's up
I'll heed the call
I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls
I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls

And my final thought
Is I don't even blame these fools
If I were in their shoes I might do the same
Yeah I could have fought
But I didn't want to lose you
Everything we have done has been in vain
I'm going to wait, I'm going to wait
I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls
I'm going to wait, I'm going to wait
I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls
I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls
