Track Name: Ohio
set my mind onto bluer skies
far away from these city lights
red carnations and a field of gold
beside the green, green grass of home

summer turned to autumn
so your golden hair has turned to brown
try loosening your grip
if you intend on holding on to what you found

swing low, sweet ohio
i will see you in my dreams
i don't mind if this road is long
so long as it leads me home eventually

oh my love you've been a long time gone
gone away from where you first come from
follow the lines in this ancient map
they'll take you back to where you once belonged

counted up our blessings
hoping they'd add up to something more
we mined these hills for more than gold
but we never found what we were looking for

swing low, sweet ohio
i will see you in my dreams
i don't mind if this road is long
so long as it leads me home eventually
Track Name: Ashes
peel back the dead skin
try to take a look within
oh my god these lies are wearing thin

the pieces fell from your hand
so we'll play 'em where they land
on this shaky ground we'll try to take a stand

and the dance floor sways
as the dead roll over in their graves
ashes, ashes we all fall
and these dreams don't end
i set 'em up to watch 'em fall again
ashes to ashes one and all

replay these memories
for something that alluded me
something i missed that was all too plain to see

draw your lines in the sand
till the tide comes in again
as your plans float away try to catch 'em if you can

and the dance floor sways
as the dead roll over in their graves
ashes, ashes we all fall
and these dreams don't end
i set 'em up to watch 'em fall again
ashes to ashes one and all
Track Name: Faded Leaves
all your friends are faded leaves
falling from your dying tree
till they crumble in between
the pages of your history

none of them make a sound
when they hit your dirty ground
and like the love you thought you’d found
they're all gone now

shattered dreams like scattered seeds
floating on the fickle breeze
till they fall among the weeds
of your bitter memories

and the sun is sinking low
and it's a colder wind that blows
may god have mercy on the flowers
that grow in your shadow

and can i tell you that i'm sorry
for the love you had in mind
is not the love that i could give to you
and maybe i just ain't the loving kind

curse this luck
and fill this cup
but you could never drink enough
for to drown the shadow of
a man you have become

now your days have grown so long
now that everyone is gone
so sing another lonely song
for moving on
Track Name: By Your Side
with a ghost by your side
and one at your back not far behind
wipe the smile from your teeth
brush the heart now from your sleeve

trying not to repeat
all the sins of the past
as i follow your footsteps
down the same worn path

with a book in your hand
you carry around but don't understand
keep a song in your head
cause we only find words for what's already dead

trying not to repeat
all the sins of the past
as i follow your footsteps
down the same worn path

trying not to repeat
all the sins of the past
as i wait in your shadow
for the sun to rise at last
Track Name: No Need
with a nose for trouble
and a mind for the truth
sad eyes and a shit-eating smile
all the trappings of youth

turn your back to this city
but keep an ear to the floor
one foot in and one foot out
and your hand on the door

come back where you belong
you've been outside in this world for too long
if you're tired and lonely or drifting away
there's no need to be alone

but if you need understanding
there's no reason to hide
at best you'll find maybe one friend who'll try
to cross that great divide

come back where you belong
you've been outside in this world for too long
if you're tired and lonely or drifting away
there's no need to be alone
