Track Name: Cannon Fires
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Falling back within the time, listening all the while
The improv is gone now, oh Lord you did allow

Now the tide is moving in, and the air sent shivers down
Ascending up the side, until till we all arise

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

We picked you up at ten, but we held for five more hours
Grounds rippled from the copter, a roof for us to further

A sitting after hours, you turned yourself to tears
A problem to contend, farewell with lips, what an end

Like cannon fires with open tires, we'll drift astray
With open roads, to where who knows, we'll find our way

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Like cannon fires with open tires, we'll drift ’n stray
With open roads, to where who knows, we'll find our way

Wait one more
To stroll on down
This is not what you thought
It'd be

Like cannon fires with open tires, we'll find our way along
Track Name: You Are My Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
When I awoke dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head, and I cried

I'll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me to love another
You'll regret it all one day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
Please don't take my sunshine away
Track Name: Fleeting
There are signs of fleeting times
Stumble to the passing tides
The grounds so bare
For the moment, I've turned too frail

Oh skies are buried now
I'm just waiting to turn around
Rest your eyes, it will all work out

Stared on through before
Heavy hearts much more
The air's so sweet
Rumbling through the backseat

Oh skies are buried now
I'm just waiting to turn around
Rest your eyes dear, it all works out
Track Name: The Roots Grow Twice As Deep
Chasing yarn through corrupted lines
Two thousand miles through floating confines
Another hammer to tear down my pride
My heart begins to fall, but where to confide

Promises are promised you see
Are your words who you once claimed you’d be
Sit in silence till fate begins to wake
Stumble to a bitter sweet glimmer that waits

Have you lost your way
Rummage for escape

The roots have grown far too deep in this ground
Mocking my words, this heart begins to pound

Well now, what’s left to be
Will you wait, so patiently
Now you’re home

The roots have grown far too deep in this ground
Mocking my words, this heart begins to pound

Well now, what’s left to be
Will you wait, so patiently
Now you're home
Track Name: Runaway
Hold my hand and don't look back
Don't let your head fall off the tracks
Until it's over
I know that doubts crawling in the back of your mind

Runaway oh friend
Lord knows whats got you tied up in the end
Counting signs to get through these times
Hold your head through the rumble of the tread
Until it's over
Striding to the rhythm of the wind

Filtering the cold winds lies
The smell of smoke 'n howling cries
Not sure where to go
Don't let your steam overflow

Another foreknown broken night
Hold your head, you’ll be alright
Pray to God relieve this sorrow

A uniform to break the dawn
Held firm cruel until you were gone
Stand one more to be so brave
Find a breath before you cave
Until it's over
I know that doubts crawling in the back of your mind

Filtering the cold winds lies
The smell of smoke 'n howling cries
Not sure where to go
Don't let your steam overflow

Another foreknown broken night
Hold your head you’ll be alright
Pray to God relieve this sorrow

Oh Lord, I know
Just not ready, to come back home
Track Name: A Maze
I see you running
Farther away
Take off your shoes
And let me wash your feet

Cause I know
Your pain
And I know your shame

Won’t you stay
In this house that I built for you
Please don’t go
This is your home

You have your dreams
They aren’t coming true
You have your words
Just let, just let them go

Cause I know
What you mean
And you are heard

Won’t you stay
In this house that I built for you
Please don’t go
This is your home

Won’t you stay
In this house that I built for you
Please don’t go
This is your home

Won’t you stay
In this house that I built for you
Please don’t go
Cause I am your home
Track Name: Wolves
Through the silence of the night, you whispered again
Wind caught up in the lips of dissolving men
For your familiar frame once made me sing
Now I’m all lost in the sweetness of a voice that would sway and swing

Are you passing through, Oh beloved avalanche
This succession of straining restless ignorance

How the mind builds a wild border tied with truth
But the soul is a wanderer fixed on the unveiling moon

Are you passing through, Oh beloved avalanche
This succession of straining restless ignorance

God how I feel it despite the noise ‘neath my chest
I feel the wolves biting off this thief’s innocence
God how I feel it despite the noise ‘neath my chest
I feel the wolves biting off this thief’s innocence

Well I stand on what you have shown to me
And I smile at the moon ‘neath the Oregon trees
Well I’ve had just a few, will you wake me
And I open my eyes to the history of a family

God how I feel it despite the noise ‘neath my chest
God how I feel it despite the noise ‘neath my chest
God how I feel it despite the noise ‘neath my chest
I feel the wolves biting off this thief’s innocence
Track Name: Samson (The River)
Lead me to the water, to where we first met
Oh how you captured me with regret
Now I'm standing here alone
Waiting for you to come back home

Lead me to the water, to where you fell in
I never wanted to lose my friend
Now I'm left here in my fear
I just want you to be near

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Cause I want you back
But I know you're not coming back
Cause I want you back
But I know you're not coming back

Lead me to the place where you told me you loved me
Under the stars we lay
I wish I could go back and save your soul

Cause I want you back
But I know you're not coming back
Cause I want you back
But I know you're not coming back

Cause I want you back
Cause I want you back
But I know you're not coming back

Lead me to the water that has turned into a river
The river that stole you from my hands
Cause I want you back
But I know you're not coming back
Cause I want you back
But I know you're not coming back
Track Name: Moving On
You're goin’ away for now
You're runnin’ to the beat out loud
Oh this time ahead will soon become free
So cast your sails and head off to sea

Oh once these days turn to leave
You'll all be headed off to sea
The sun will shine just one more time
Till you come along, before time moves on

Come on, lets just ride all night
Strummin’ till it sounds just right
Lets head out, lets meet the folk
Draggin’ on, for just one last smoke

Oh once these days turn to leave
You'll all be headed off to sea
The sun will shine just one more time
Till you come along, before time moves on

Lets go, through the morning row
Almost, a month till you go
I see them walk, run down the line
You feel fine, for just one more time

Oh once these days turn to leave
You'll all be headed off to sea
The sun will shine just one more time
Till you come along, before time moves on

Moving on
Time moves on
Moving on
Moving on
