Track Name: One At A Time
I’m sick and tired of sun going down without seeing it fall
And I keep getting fired when I work for myself
Higher standards than anyone else
Mama I’m asleep but my eyes they won’t shut
Mama can’t you see I ain’t awake enough

So I have resolved
To be in one place
Fuck all of the noise
Hang out with boys
Keep to myself
Read those books on my shelf
Take the people I love
One at a time

And I can’t find the time to cut off my hair
Trim my face change the clothes that I wear
But I’m doing just fine yeah I’ll watch where I step
I keep turning right cause I got nothing left
And mama in a week I’ll be right in the head
It always turns out mama just like you said
So I have resolved
To call you up
But till I’m around
You’ll be talking me down
I’ll stay light on my feet
Make plans I can keep
Walk the streets of this town
One at a time

So I have resolved
To be in one place
Fuck all of the noise
Hang out with boys
Keep to myself
Read those books on my shelf
Take the people I love
One at a time
Track Name: All I Had
Went out in the darkness
Went out in the rain
Don't know where I was goin, but I was goin insane
Went out in the garden
Went out to the woods
Didn't have all the roadmaps, like a grown man should
all I had was you

Got caught in a landslide
Got tossed by a wave
Didn't know what I was missin', but I misbehaved
Got stuck in a pickle
Laid low by the curve
I don't get much, but I get what I deserve
Cause all I got is you
Yeah all I got is you

But take my words with a grain
And salt my wounds when it rains
I ain't in love with the pain

Got found in the rushes
Floated out on the tide
Now I know what is sad is, and I'm satisfied
Got lost in the desert
Sunk down in the sand
Now that I've gone under, I can understand
That all I want is you
Yeah all I want is you
Oh all I want is you
Track Name: Cassiopeia
Orion Orion what's going on
I saw you were hanging with Cygnus the Swan
Up at the summer triangle
Where you don't belong

Oh hey now Orion I've started to see
As Cassiopeia rises up from the trees
And you seem to cast a glance in her direction

The Old King has fallen asleep in his chair
And Cassiopeia has let down her hair
And the Milky Way shimmers against the dark of the night

And we sing...
Cassiopeia
I know you can't see us
But Cassiopeia
Can you hear us

Orion is cut like a river guide
And she is as pretty as a boatman's bride
And across the night they catch each others attention

Well she just bats her pretty brown eyes
And he goes racing across the sky
Impetuously towards her dazzling perfection

He runs with his faithful dog at his heals
Exuding a wild and a primal appeal
His sword at his belt
His wits and senses alive

The queen gives a sigh
Rises up from her chair
And her skin feels alive in the cold night air
As her gown falls away sending a gasp across the galaxy

And we sing...
Cassiopeia
I know you can't see us
But Cassiopeia
Can you hear us

In a blanket of stars we tuck ourselves in
We're humble and silly as mortal men
All we get is the constellation prize

Orion Orion what's going on
I saw you were hanging
With Cygnus the Swan
Up at the summer triangle
Where you don't belong

Orion Orion what's going on
I saw you were hanging
Where you don't belong
And that you fell in love
By the banks of the river

And we sing...
Cassiopeia
I know you can't see us
But Cassiopeia
Can you hear us

Cassiopeia
We're light years beneath ya
But Cassiopeia
Can you hear us
Can you hear us
Track Name: Waiting Game
Take the time and I’ll take your name
Though I’m not one for the waiting game
So I’ll write it down
Though the songs they all sound the same

And I find myself waiting at a station
I find myself waiting on you
I find myself waiting on tables of poets
Writing verses but none of them new
I find myself

Jackie’s hands were black and blue
The Brooklyn fans were screaming too
So he caught the wind
And gave hope to those who sinned
And played a fool
Now he’d be screaming too

And I find myself waiting for a change up
I find myself waiting for a sign
I find myself turning that corner ahead, going home but I know it’s not mine
I find myself, yeah I find myself

(instrumental)

And I wander, wander, wonder what I’m saying
I wander, wander, wanna lend a hand
Though the blind may lead the blind
I know a good man’s hard to find in this great land

Sarah’s arms were full of dirt
She was digging holes to hide the hurt
If she dug em well
She’d send those bastards down to hell
Where they would learn
It was Jackie’s turn

And I find myself waiting for justice
I find myself hoping for peace
I find myself caught in a nation of battlegrounds, where no one will call the police
I find myself, yeah I find myself

And I wander, wander, wonder what I’m saying
I wander, wander, wanna lend a hand
Yeah I wander, wander, wonder what I’m saying
Oh and I wander, wander, wanna lend a hand
Though the blind may lead the blind
I know a good man’s hard to find
So I find myself
Track Name: Peter's Song
‘Cause answers go by so fast
Why do answers go by so fast
That's a damn good question
I thought you'd never ask
Thought you'd never think to ask

I've forgotten what I don't remember
Don't remember what I forgot

Though I ponder my days go sleepless through my nights
I prefer to go to the walking in the hills
When they're warm in the evening light

And the journey is in the asking
As a car goes roaring past
We glimpse a face in a window
That never came to pass

I walk among the oaks
Cross shadows to the light
As the distant valley
Prepares for night
Cars with their headlights
Sweeping through the trees
Lighting patches of branches
What we can't see recedes

Ahead there lies a silence
Voices from the stone
If we choose to listen
On days we walk alone
We're left with questions
A trembling of song
An hour is lifetime
It's here and then it's gone

Evening shadows grow long
The old man's walk alone
In the blurring of light he'll be gone
Gone

Throw our questions in the water
Watch the ripples grow
Press a cheek to the dirt
See the mountain from below
If it's answers we're looking for
If it's answer we're looking for
If it's answers we're looking for
Feel the the earth against our skin
Face down down and take it in

It's a damn good question
And the moon is in the trees
It's a damn good question
So let's drink to you and me
Let's drink a toast to the asking
To questions everlasting
Cause the moon is in the trees

So here's to you and me
So here's to you and me
We're here

Cause answers go by so fast
Why do answers go by so fast
That's a damn good question
I thought you'd never ask
Thought you'd never think to ask
