Wrong idea I believe it had to be Feel it coming over me Looking for the words I’d have to say To get away with it somehow See it so much clearer now Might just be a hold-up on the way Nowhere I could turn to then All there was – means without end Tried to move along against the day Push the boulder up a hill Like I had some time to kill All the while it kept slipping away Not knowing where to start With a wrong idea in mind Gotta set it right this time Gotta override I believe it really must be For once some sincerity Let the devil in the detail work for me Put my finger on it now Things are so much clearer now ‘Sorry’ never got me anywhere near To knowing where to start With a wrong idea in mind Gotta set it right this time Gotta override

Revelations When I was a child I used to run Couldn’t hold my head up high Never wanted to complain Never asked the reason why If I had a reason Growing up they say You’ll make your way Always trying to succeed But driven to a cause I failed At what the world demands of me I never felt so incomplete Now the season’s ‘bout to change To a new beginning And the revenue of hope ‘s to what I’m clinging Take a leap of faith and know That the word once spoken Fills the hollow, lifts the ground, leads into the open When I was a child I used to hide away The ordinary me All false hearts and broken vows Made up the world that I would flee If I had a reason Now the season’s ‘bout to change To a new beginning And the revenue of hope ‘s to what I’m clinging Take a leap of faith and know That the word once spoken Fills the hollow, lifts the ground, leads into the open

Common Ground Rolling in and out of town Waiting for the crucial hour Things ‘been heating up around me Sure now that I won’t forget What you did to me instead I’ll be craving to redeem What could’ve been Though we reel on common ground Just can’t wrap my head around How to give up on this dream Stolen years that barely count Time stained wasted in the round And still the truth remains unseen I believe it's a common thing Well, the hour’s getting late Night flies by, I hesitate Ain’t no sense in losing sleep Call it quits and let it rest Winner’s always second best If the guilt is running deep I believe it's a common thing Strolling back through sullen town Seeping air and bleeding ground All it’s ever meant to be Though I know I won’t forget What you did to me instead I’ll keep on bargaining this dream

Rolling In The Roundabout Roll, roll, hear them roll Down the river, down below So tired Rolling in the roundabout Don’t wanna be left out Rolling in the roundabout I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired Oh sweet lonesome song Telling me to come on home So tired Rolling in the roundabout Don’t wanna be left out Rolling in the roundabout I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired Catch that train down south Given that much doubt I grow tired, so tired Catch that train down south Don’t wanna be left out I grow tired, so tired Come frail fortune’s hand Carry me across the land So tired Rolling in the roundabout Don’t wanna be left out Rolling in the roundabout I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired Oh soul, set yourself free From your sweet captivity So tired Rolling in the roundabout Don’t wanna be left out Rolling in the roundabout I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired Catch that train down south Given that much doubt I grow tired, so tired Catch that train down south Don’t wanna be left out I grow tired, so tired

Waste Your Life Coming up on the hillside I saw Weary angels applauding Me waging a war For I fled all the places to feel Seeming all too surreal Get away from it all today Planned my great escape To the very end With each morning a friend Being lost to the bend Don’t wanna waste your life Don’t wanna waste your life Around me

Morning Sun I’m not scared Of being moved With nothing left to say And nothing more to prove Like an ancient rite Upcoming dawn With nothing to pretend And nothing to be done In the morning sun And it hits me just As I’m trying to look away Maybe lying to keep things safe When the tide has already turned So I bite my tongue Gotta wait it out Let it cleanse the air Of all the memories and doubts In the morning sun

The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore When I was a curly headed baby My daddy set me down on his knee Saying, "Son you go to school you learn your letters Don't you be no dusty miner, boy, like me" I was born and raised at the mouth of the Hazard Holler Where the coal cars rolled and rumbled past my door But now they stand in a rusty row of all empties Because the L&N don't stop here anymore I used to think my daddy was a black man With script enough to buy the company store But now he goes to town with empty pockets And, Lord, his face is white as the February snow (chorus) Never thought I'd live to learn to love that coal dust Never thought I'd pray to hear those tipples roar But, God, I wish the grass would turn to money And them greenbacks would fill my pockets once more (chorus) Last night I dreamt I went down to the office To get my payday like I done before But them old kudzu vines was covering the doorway And there was leaves and grass growing right up through the floor (chorus)

Oh Sweet Sanity Sanity oh sweet sanity Tell me what’s been waiting there for me A song to whisper in my ear Of a heart in woe so dear Tell me what’s been waiting there for me Of a spark that lit our tears As the fall of man drew near Sweet sanity Forlorn isle across the sea Saint Mary oh sweet Saint Mary Tell me what the future holds for me I prayed for to know and still waiting for thee To tell me what the future’s meant to be To dwell with my true heart in o sweet reveries Leaving me to be Oh Saint Mary Remedy oh sweet remedy tell me What’s been burgeoning in me A sweet ole melody of a tale that was to be Of mornings bright and merry I shall see A sweet ole melody of a tale that was to be Of mornings bright and merry I shall see Of mornings bright and merry I shall see Of mornings bright and merry Farewell thee
