Track Name: A Ray Away
when fog covers trees there's a place to call home only your eyes can see woven through stuck in a dream I'm in a chair 300 feet in the air from a cliff you laugh at me 'cause I'm scared to climb down but I think I'm gonna dive straight down into the sea my great escape watch me swim away eventually I'll find a way to swim with the fish and the shark and the ray I'll find a way to swim with the fish and the shark and the ray now that I've grown some gills I'm doing fine deep under the sea why don't you change your mind visit me and if you can't swim we'll find a place among the rocks you wave your arms anemone eventually you'll find a way to swim with the fish and the shark and the ray
Track Name: Roam
heading east on the interstate
radio against my ear
kids drive by they point and laugh
they don't know what I'm about
sunshine on the windshield keeping me warm
hum of wheels on the pavement
hypnotize me
isn't this a fine thing thing?
isn't it fine
isn't this a fine thing?
isn't it fine
isn't this a fine thing
to behold?
I was feeling good, maybe better than I should
considering the circumstance
your father died two weeks ago
that is why I'm traveling
I learned something about myself
underneath the wide sky
I know I'm late in telling this
but I thought you'd like to know
I like the road I like to roam
alone
isn't this a fine thing?
isn't it fine
isn't this a fine dream?
yeah, isn't it fine
isn't this a fine thing
to behold?
I like the road I like to roam
alone
Track Name: Ice Melting All Around
here winter groan
the ice is falling on the snow
sleigh bound downhill I go
days long ice water now
break the fields sweat on my brow
hold fast tied to the bough
ice melting all around
this branch remains

spring coming in
take the reins through thick and thin
shake the chill that winter sprung
with the birds come soaring home
to your shore I offer soul
from the hawk down to the lowly vole
in pieces or a single whole
my heart sings true
Track Name: Land in 3
we drove out from the bay and through tall trees
snow on top
down the other side the eastern slope
promise it held
sand in your shoes dust in your hair
down your shirt
take what you please of it I will too
and the dust that covers me covers you

I came to see land come in three
and I came to believe all the truth I'd seen
I thought I knew I could split in two
I learned to see

there's one side to give shade the other keeps cool
first hands then tears
give back what it gave to you
life and strength
Track Name: I Can't Wait
I can't wait to pack the car and leave this town choose our route by pointing fingers all around spend the night in the cheapest place that we can find swaybacked beds a brightly colored neon sign I can't wait to see your eyes in the light of that sign stick by my side I'll do my best to stick by yours its the best place I ever found across the plains up the sides of mountains high spend the night in a tiny campground in the pines I can't wait to see your eyes in the light of those pines through the sage across the desert far and wide choose your spot in a shady place among the hills I can't wait see your eyes in the light of those hills in the light of those pines in the light of that sign I can't wait I cannot wait.
