Blackwing 05:06
Blackwing Blinding lightening as the thunder cracks Rumble from a graphite sky Half the pressure, twice the speed Drawing down a dark grey line Palomino Blackwing 602 Looking for a place to land There ain't much call for all that lead If you're only writing on the back of your hand Steep dolerite, sleek barrel Hold the sharpest point Cinder and arrow Shading down in a shady grove Acicular cedar grace Fat rain falling on flat bedrock Smudge the sketches of your face
2.
The Rushing Dark Benchseat ride six miles to town Sky blazing over then night rolled down Take the corners wide Your own blue nile Burlap sacks, blood and bone Clay straw sticks and stone Three hounds raised fat Just like that When the rushing dark meets the swarming lights Cut like card through a blue-black night It’s the dirt and damn, and the tear apart Ripped like card through a blue-black heart Gravel shoulder on a hairpin bend Tearing it down with your new found friend Through the blare and shout We’re gonna drown it out Milkweed stench and a crooked smile Wind rattled that place all through the night Looking right at you With his one good eye Hear it in your mother tongue Rumble down down below, ringing up up above When the rushing dark meets the swarming lights Cut like card through the blue-black night It’s the dirt and damn, and the tear apart Ripped like card through a blue-black heart

Room to Burn 04:37
Room To Burn So much trouble, so much chance All that strife, all this wide expanse If we're all playing shouldn't we be taking turns If it’s room you’re needing, brother we’ve got room to burn Roaring water, ever-shifting plates Under all that poison behind some concrete and some gates Luck don't hold, the poison weeps For a sweet old world we're playing for keeps Is it afflicted vision, or is it maybe you can't hear the sound From that magic bubble running on dirty big holes in the ground Down there somewhere don't it cause at least mild concern The climb gets steeper, brother we've got a lot to learn Is your heart beating, or is it maybe you can't hear the sound, The climb gets steeper, brother it's such a long way down
4.
Darlin If We Could I shouldn’t take the turn off I should use the new bypass But sometimes I’m drawn to take the road That leads me through our past The streets we walked together Steep streets of your seaside town The park, the hall, the hardware store Sometimes I slow right down To see if I can see you But I also hope I don’t Maybe this time I’ll keep from crying Then again I know I won’t Oh darlin if we could would you wind back to the start Even if it all turned out the same, left you with a broken heart Oh darlin if we could, would you turn it all around Could you live those years again with me back here in your seaside town The wharf is like a lookout The ocean rolls below Little shacks clinging on to the cliffs You know it never quite felt like home Never quite shook the make-believe But how I tried to play the part Tried to make the pieces fit But those pieces pulled me all apart
5.
Everything Sings Kids playing on the street below Laughter spills through open windows Suspended in a golden light You and I are gonna make believe tonight Let's pretend I can stay Make believe for one more day Here where the ivy climbs You're the one I walk beside To shore against the ruin Shaking hearts in a darkening room Raise a border to the rift Continental drift One moment seals a sweet lament On the precipice of your bed Whisper what the thunder said Let’s pretend I can stay Make believe for one more day Suspended in a golden light Everything sings tonight
6.
Lasseter’s Gold Quarter to four and you're almost there Blue pen twisted up in your hair Pull the roller, bolt it to the ground When you get out of there you just wanna get down Can get pretty cold in a hot food van We take chips and change brother yeah you can Graveyard shift sees you to the light When you get out of there you just wanna get high Chasing down your rum and lines Come on baby take me some place quiet And sing me a song I’ve been singing all night Gonna shake it up good for another round When you get out of there you really wanna get out So much wrapped in golden fleece So many of them looking for Lasseter’s Reef Gonna take their chances on another try When you get out of there you just wanna get high Chasing down your rum and lines
7.
Not Waiting Now Whole maze of prints down a narrow track Wet road rushes above, pylon at my back Street light drips smudge the stars All the lights are flicking on down where the houses start From that ledge I could see straight down I was waiting then, but I’m not waiting now When the weather comes in from the west Feel the rush upon your skin, the pounding in your chest Defiant nights stand up to the dawn Suspended in between the letting go and the holding on From that ledge I could see straight down I was waiting then, but I’m not waiting now
8.
Moving Colours From over here, without my glasses It’s such a pretty smudge of moving colours You know from over here it doesn’t seem So like a raging tide, as a broken boat On its broken way, from a broken start Young fisher boys and the broken hearted We curse the callousness of your petty counting The fear you love to feed with your poisoned spouting Shall we keep rattling round like a box of jaffas Filled up on room to spare in a flimsy package I’m just over here, can’t find my glasses It’s such a pretty smudge of moving colours
9.
Up All Night 04:54
Up All Night I wasn’t ready to leave Walked through the dawn, down to the sea Watching the sky turn in to blue I’ve been up all night daydreaming of you Through this sweet mist for more I’m wending my way down to the shore Watching that boat hove in to view I’ve been up all night daydreaming of you So as the swell grows calm I’ll magic myself into your arms Just close my eyes, it’s all I can do Were you up all night daydreaming too
10.
Green & Blue 03:41
Green & Blue Sweet breeze come in my window Hope hanging round my door I've got this forward leaning feeling Like I never had before Shook the shadows from the blankets Chased the ghosts out of my bed I got a carefreeness singing in my chest And a ringing in my head I got the threads of that old story I got this ache that's hard to place Got these little sparks hinting in the dark And a smile upon my face The sun against my backbone Got this feeling in my blood I've got the shifting sands and re-shaped lands Of a valley after flood Night birds calling near and far Blue-blush shimmer of an evening star I've got these songs that keep on whispering I've got this wide open ground and I've been listening to what's ringing true and I got wired to the sound Crackling steady like a tracking fuse Little seeds of wonder green and blue Heartsease blooming right by your door Feed what you've been looking for
