Track Name: liberty street
there I sat on the last night of the world, and ofcourse I ran into her on the last night of my life, and ofcourse I ran into my first friend on the last night of my life, I even ran into a gremlin I used to see when I was fifteen years old, I was on my way out, still stopped and said hello, and hello
Track Name: golden ticket
some nights are here to remember, some nights you won't remember at all, there's so many ways to get high, the thing you have to remember about time, it's passing differently in everybody's minds, there's so many ways to get high, we were young and it was fun, it was passing right by, sure dragged at the end of the line, you buy the ticket you take the ride, there's so many ways to get high
Track Name: song for sj
i had a dream and it was me and the heron, and we sat alone staring at the beaver who was chewing on the timber, i awoke and started to shiver, i had a dream and it was me and the apple outside the sunday chapel, and mother cried to the heavens in the sky and i awoke in the middle of the night, i had a dream and now its you and me and everyone ive ever known or seen, and how it felt like it was my last dream, i had a dream and it was me and the rabbit and we made some bad habits and i was young and i was talking on the phone, well now im old and im dying all alone, i had a dream i was a cyprus tree, and another i was large and empty oh as i could be and i awoke at the end of my dream, i had a dream and now its you and me now, oh this is more than just a dream now, and i wake up in the middle of december and i cry as i start to remember, and on the day that her mother passed away, she left the restaurant and headed my way, climbs up my ladder and she looks me in the eye, she starts to cry says her mother just died, and oh my god this is my last dream, and its nothing but its everything, and its nothing but its everything ive ever seen
