Preface 01:29
Mostly the same as Track 2, only not so many of them.
Dark Fields 04:10
There is no word for the blackness hanging on this place Fool friends have searched among the old forgotten names There are no stars shining down in their silver grace We're lost to the dark fields now The tall grass can hide anything It will swallow you whole Like a bottomless well The longer that you last here The farther down you'll fall Blood from a stone, tight fist as white as moon-blanched bone A people pulled back in on themselves Silent and forgotten and alone The ditches run deep, the roots here tangle everything We're caught in the clutch of shame Once you come you cannot leave again
Sunflower 02:29
When I wake up I see the sun shining down for you Shining down for you And as it warms up your flowers and petals shake off the dew Shake off the dew Sunflower so yellow Against the so blue I'll take the road out to the fields where you grow Fields where you grow And every step brings me closer to see the seeds that you sow The seeds that you sow I'll take you with me wherever I may go I'll take you with me wherever I may go When I wake up I see the sun shining down for you Shining down for you Sunflower so yellow Against the sky so blue
Broken Wheel 04:52
There are rules for broken wheels I guess I'd better buy The bible of flat tires I've been a little low For a great big while And you have bourn the burden Of this saggin' sigh There are ghosts Up and down these roads They're haunting burned out diners And drinking black coffee The signs up on their walls Though painted in many colors They don't say a thing They don't say anything at all Engine, it struggles just to make it here alive Honey, I'd just be another ghost if you didn't help me drive There are whispers The sagebrush and the sun The thistle and the lark They sing to one another And we could learn to listen If we only had the time, The ears and inclination The reason and the rhyme
