When I was a good boy young a with my conscience Run around holdin hands a sellin lemonade Flippin coins and watch reflected sunsets On old Abraham or Georgie When I was a good boy young I had it all down Smile and tell em your name. When I was a good boy young It was so simple Tie your shoes and run in the rain Shoes and run in the rain. Now I’m older, yeah I’m older All the lines seem to be gray and faded/shaded Just a tryin to get through the day- forget her Oh well anyways that’s over When I was a good boy young I had it all down Smile and tell em your name. When I was a good boy young It was so simple Tie your shoes and run in the rain Shoes and run in the rain.

Pawl - Motel 02:55
We moved into a motel We didn't know We moved into a motel On our own It changed our family We had more to do It changed so many things And became part of you Names flowed into our motel Like twists of fate They fought and made love Then drew the shades It changed our Saturdays We had jobs to do It changed so many things And became part of you And before you run And tell our Mom and Dad what I've done Just know we're one With love and hate for the business-son We grew up fast For those they called white and middle class We learned it young What happens to the people on the lowest rung

You want a line? Safe back in Colorado You want a line? You should be kind And be a gracious lover Colorado, too yeah You want a line? You want a line say? Dynamite, I been runnin all my life But my fuse won’t catch a light So I’ll wait for the bowl and shockwave Try as might, it’s been always on my mind How she cut aeortal vine and just Just sat and watched it bleedin Dynamite, Swift please do not sink tonight How I want it all to right But I can’t tell the ocean from the Sky at night How your moon it is so bright How I want you in starlight How I want you on the mountains You want a line? Safe back in Colorado You want a line? You should be kind and be a gracious lover Colorado, too yeah

Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh You left your boot print on our door Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh Then your fist came back for more We found you bleeding on the floor and that’s for sure. Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh We got calls from your girlfriend Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh She’d been wondering where you’d been Said check the papers and the pen and there’s your man It’s such a small town Everybody found out And we recognized your face It’s such a small town Had to throw your ass out Cause we recognized your face Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh It wasn’t always like that night Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh Before you got too ripe Many times we chewed the fat and that’s for sure Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh the last time you checked in Ohhhh ohhhh ohhh you were gunning for a binge and you were stopped short by a hinge-- it did you in On day I was driving I saw your sign I pulled on over and gave you a ride You said it “Hey it’s time man” And sung me a rhyme Your gaze was a thousand miles wide It’s such a small town Everybody found out That I’d recognized your face It’s such a small town Everybody found out That you’d finally found your That you’d finally found your That you’d finally found your place

It's been a long long time since the tide brought me more Of those dreams where your eyes could see all through my pores It's been a longer time still since I knocked on your door and you answered, smile wide, 'come and knock me over' And it's the law man And there'll be no more comin on the one shore Oh man Since we lit that fire and the brush caught under And your brother got mad and he drew his thunder And the cops caught bad found him drunk asunder And they beat him down on the shore And I remember how you looked with the bees buzzin round you Suited up, laughin loud, high as a ball And then you threw the hive up and it landed and sounded Like a gunshot in your brother's truck aw And we were gone, yeah And he was bein bit up like chemical warfare Aw man He was allergic as could be but we were too high too care Ran into the hills, sunlight, and your hair Made love all night like chemical warfare And the cops woke us up at dawn Oh the things in your life that you do when you're runnin From the waves beatin on, on the one shore And I blamed everything that we did that summer on you, under lights, And I made up some more I was lyin man And they locked you up tight for the crimes that we blundered Oh man I never meant to hurt a soul, but I'm a stumbler And I keep lovin you like I'm dyin of hunger As I sit up and night and I sometimes wonder If you'll ever take me back at all Oh won't you ever take me back at all? Oh won't you take me back? Oh won't you take me back? My darlin girl

Coming from the hall Now I hear ya Gone noise between us Egos man they grow ya to fall You’re my brother, Paul Begs to wonder All the years between us Man, whatever took us so long? I can see you there Sitting on a stool like chair Laughing at the sound Of the colosseum Line that hook up Knock it out of the park You’re my brother, Paul Longer than our hearts hold a pulse Catch it and don’t fall Love the world you breath in One more time now Knock it out of the park You’re my brother…

Pawl - Home 03:50
You walked in the other day And all the time we spent away And on a rainy day Your southwest ticket came And honestly, you were whispering my name It don't matter what they say Well counting yesterdays And honestly, they keep whispering my name It’s always An option But you'd been Forgotten I picture you dancing in the sun I thought about it, carried it awhile We can’t go back to it And on a sunny holiday We break ourselves before the day begins Back to the start. Time Is a friend and a gift For awhile And smile at the rift And on a rainy day Your southwest ticket came And honestly, you were whispering my name It don't matter what they say Well counting yesterdays And honestly, they keep whispering my name It’s always An option But you'd been Forgotten I picture you dancing in the sun I thought about it, carried it awhile We can’t go back to it And on a sunny holiday

You did it right Captured light Put it into their Open eyed arms Preach with style Step to side Joke around Tell em 'loves in the cards' Then a man from the wings Asks some things Which to answer are hard Critical light Undeceived them Thought you had 'em wrapped up in your charms Then the audience Did not receive you Left you all alone with telephone cards What’s the truth anyways? Cause facts can be opaque Superstition overlays Most of every all our days Crystal light Burns the night As your tears Wave the getaway cars Friends and life Say goodbye Oh and why? Cause you lied about stars Then that man from the wings Says some things Which to swallow are hard Critical light Can redeem you If you listen to the reason with heart Don't let charlatans So deceive you They'll rob blind cause lyins an art Oh what's the truth today? That myths outdated anyway You'll find another one some day A lie to make your get away Critical light Can redeem you If you listen to the reason with heart So don't counterfeit Truth or you will Trap yourself inside the lies that you start

I was killed by jealousy A thousand mile long spear shaft through me She took my heart and she left me a note saying 'Oh we had such fun, casual affair you weren't the one' Well, you're an animal just with two brains You're an animal, unnameable, Unpreventable playing those mind games She was far from right for me I stuck around cause I couldn't see How I could fall so down in love with a paper doll that pouts And doesn't want to talk about You're an animal just with two brains You're an animal, unnameable, Undetectable playing those mind games Tried to fill your heart but I was alone Up on the hill singing songs in the cold With the trees and the light untold Please let not arm and put your wrongs to side Please let not arm and everybody wipe your eyes [minds] It takes a long, long time Oh to unblind your eyes From spoke or silent lies But it'll be alright But wait we- Please let not arm and everybody run and hide I laid it on so thick Her smile was a disguise Never apologizing Spun my head- gas light - I loved her- Please let not arm, Please let not arm Please let not arm and put your wrongs aside Please let not arm and take apart your rifle sights When we expatriate Sometimes a bit too late Please try forgiveness now Please don't hold on to hate- but wait she This was the harm, balled up in charm Please let not arm and put your wrongs aside Call the alarm, but keep yourself warm Please let not arm and go and take another bite Oh it's tonight tonight Oh it's alright alright I have eleven said How in you I delight, oh me oh Please let not arm and put your wrongs aside With pride  undone, the damage it comes, And love over-runs all up inside my eyes

Couldn't believe that I had to go You wanted me but you would not Building a life I couldn't let you alone Yip yip yip yip yip I plant some trees down into the grove You pick the leaves and you burn them Building a lie It was the wrong season grown Yip yip yip yip yip You don't tell me to go I know when I do know I don't know when you lie I don't know when you right at all, at all How life is full of clowns With their smiles upside down We won but lost the fight Now violence is alright downtown What now? We climb with ease up the red brick row To see the sky like a curtain Liftin a glow And spit at people below Yip yip yip yip yip yip I had a reason, a firework show Love has no season it Bursts into life Gives you no choice to be sold Yip yip yip yip yip yip Well you better believe that I had to go You don't tell me to go I know when I do know I don't know when you lied I don't know when you right at all At all Cause love is not a game To later on explain I loved you til I died I loved you til my bones were smoke We hope you choice And if you didn't believe that I had to go Well you better believe that I took it slow To decide

I’ve been scrambling—yeah Up all night, left-handed, Trying to write these briefs for days So I ramble on now Tied up in litigation Telephone wires line my cage …and I can’t stand it. Give me a little more time. My defense is wearing thin… I know it, but I can’t leave now Living at the Inn, we begin to grow again Watching rainbows from the Ottoman Dense green shrubbery and some apple trees I have always loved you, will you remember me? ……will you remember me? They say “it’s over” And you want to sing along They say “it’s over” And you wake up! Ever since I left Hanoi, boy Part of me was stranded-- Feeling napalm day and night No one will ever find me In these newspaper mountains There are too many enemies …and I can’t stand it Give me a little more time. My defense is wearing thin… I know it, but I can’t leave now They say “it’s over” And you want to sing along They say “it’s over” And you wake up! Living at the Inn, we begin to grow again Watching rainbows from the Ottoman Dense green shrubbery and some apple trees I have always loved you, will you remember me? ……will you remember me?

Sky men, sky men Where do you come from? Where are you going to? Sky men, sky men. When I walked out into the field, Me and my darling. We saw a bright light it was standin there still She grabbed my arm then. Bright colored lights and the sound danced before us While out above there sounded a chorus. And I reached to cover the pores and the holes in my mind as they called us “Oh brothers the times near” I see a space light comin, it’s comin for me. I see a space light comin, it’s comin for me. Sky men, sky men Where do you come from? Where are you going to? Sky men, sky men. When I walked out into the field Me and my darling We saw us a light It was standin there til We started runnin Taken at night when the silence of dreams Can obscure and enlighten the words riddles slip. “I am The Drighlist” he caught up our figures in lies and endurahs to call back his space ship. I see a space light comin, it’s comin for me. I see a space light comin, it’s comin for me. I see a, I see a, I see a space light comin.

The fall rain on my brain, window pane. And I remember that umbrella with a you perched below And a smile. And a laugh. And a car. As the puddle tide up on us like a wave and we soaked And inside. And then warm. And then off. And then warmer than we'd ever been together before And then out. And away. I said hey. And then I never saw you again no anymore Bringin all the songs back from 1924 Don your sequined hats and amble on the dance floor Knock your knees together like you're far from the shore Clap your hands together like they're ending the war The fall rain. Hits my brain. Window pane. And I remember how your freckles all above me like stars And the lines. That you cross. When you're near. Are the ones that we should burn and put the ashes in jars Then I think. That a drink. Would be fine. But it's twelve o'clock and that's too long to get me enough And then up. And search box. After box. For a glimpse of light that once upon a time your skin touched. Bringin all the songs back from 1924 Knock your knees together spin around the dance floor Standin on a sand bank skippin; dollars and chores Clap your hands together like they're endin the wars
14.
I said “it’s vacant” And do you remember me? I said “what’s shakin?” And do you remember me? Ahhhhh isn’t it right? Ahhhh Ahhhh Ahhh Isn’t it right… As we sail through the air and sing in the square with you Understand what you’re given for free As you run and you play and you live for today For tomorrow, we die. It’s a gift in the hand that you can’t understand A moment in time Don’t sleep the day away, open the shades, and say “Thank you” for life. Will you forever run up the hill for me. Will for me Will for me Will for me Will for me The darker the night The brighter the stars The deeper the grief The closer to god—we are Will for me Will for me Will for me will for me
