Track Name: Town and the City
The fog was thick like syrup
I was squinting to see the lines
hoping like hell the road would be kind in front of me
In the city you never need to turn on your high beams
to turn on your high beams
I get lost in thinking just how long it's been

It really don't mean nothing
I just wonder about the change
You can go from Town to City
but they say you can't go the other way.

My folks they sold their place
I got no reason to come around
my Pa never liked the city
and the city was gaining ground
it's not like you can blame him
it's a far cry from what it was
I get lost in thinking we just don't know when to stop

It really don't mean nothing
I just worry about the change
You can go from Town to Country
will it all turn out the same
Track Name: Remember the Lightning
The young and wild are sure they'll never change
but time has it's way
what you love today is not what mattered then
and the game is played with higher stakes

The sound you hear when you're quiet
is the bark of a dog in fear
the animal inside is still taming
and its last defense is to bite again

Recall for me all those girls you left behind
and all those long nights
you'd wake up in the morning without a dollar to your name
still you'd be alright
you know know that, that sort of pace cannot be sustained
if it could you'd know exactly where you'd be
Remember the lighting

The sound you hear when you're quiet
is the sound of a mouse on a wheel
the animal inside is still programmed
for a time when no urge was denied
Track Name: Curse Your Weatherman
10 in the morning and the fog ain't lifting
I guess I'll never learn a thing
You live in this place you're gonna curse your weatherman
water never flows upstream

10 in the morning and the fog ain't lifting
I guess I'll never learn a thing
Momma always said that you would meet your maker
but He always had some place to be

The baby stopped crying and momma's in heaven
and you try to think of that would be
Three square meals and the scent of a woman
and a purpose and a place to be

10 in the morning and the fog ain't lifting
I guess I'll never learn a thing
Momma always said that you were far too social man
the girls they would never leave

Some problems they ain't worth solving
I know men would kill for her
long red hair and a spark like a meteor
leaving light across the room

The baby stopped crying and momma's in heaven
and you try to think of that would be
Three square meals and the scent of a woman
and a purpose and a place to be

10 in the morning and the fog ain't lifting
I guess I'll never learn a thing
You live in this place you're gonna curse your weatherman
then again it's always green
Track Name: She Studies Evil
The lights blew out and you cursed the dark
as if prayers like these could draw a crowd
you got soft, yeah it's easy to do
and I called to you for help

The spark it came in the form of pain
in your youth you craved but you could not attain
you tried and tried to call them out
Your voice is still on the machine

The lights came on and your eyes adjust
It's your daddy saying, "You can sleep when you're dead"
you got lost, yeah it's easy to do
she seemed willing to help

The spark it came in the form of pain
in your youth you craved but you could not attain
you tried and tried to call them out
Your voice is still on the machine
Track Name: Skeptic
Hard work can keep a man sane
a good woman will make you change
not in the ways you fought all those years
Your stubborn ways they will remain

A skeptic is born again, and he has good reason
In the shelter of her arms, You hold your tongue for now

You can't change what a man believes
He must do that on his own
With momma gone, it will change the way you see it
That god is hard-wired to a woman's soul

A skeptic is born again, and he has good reason
In the shelter of her arms, You hold your tongue for now
Track Name: Hummingbird
There's a hummingbird in the honeysuckle
and a new baby on the way
flowers bloom where her ashes were laid
and the dog is on the chase

maybe a day will come
when we will use what we've been given
force yourself to try again
and remember a mother's love

I don't need much to see this life through
no scars to prove that it's true
I don't want much
I just want you
Track Name: Looking for Doves
There is more in common here than we care to name
with all these lives that we've drawn in the sand
which one do you blame
Does your confinement give you freedom
then it may be love
where was shelter when you needed her most
Out looking for doves

This is not the beginning
this is not the end
This may be beyond us
not for us to comprehend
and so I put my faith into you
and you as always in the lord above
This was never my way
we are looking for doves

What brought you here
is not for me to know
that is beyond us know
this is a place of growth
Track Name: Born of a Different Age
These things hold memories of when this was a one church town and you could make it just by working with your hands.

These things that we pass on, like how to set the hook, how to walk in the woods and how to treat a lady kind.

55' Chevy Bel Air, She had the top down, her hair was streaming. I knew right then she would be your momma, I knew right then.

I never should have sold that car, yeah but live demands, and so the occasion comes and you must let go.

Our boys scattered to the wind, I hope their not alone, and they pick up the phone, in a young man's haste I sure can relate.

This is my last request, live an honest life, with hard work and sacrifice, love is the gift we pass on.
