Track Name: Don't Know Where It Started
Harmless lies, sympathize
See it in your eyes.
Truth disguised, paralyzed
Will this ever die?

Who wants to know,
What you thought of me?
It's time to let this be

Howling at the moon,
Because I don't know where it started.

Can't deny, galvanized
See it in your eyes.
Final try, eulogized
Is this the last goodbye?

Who wants to know,
What you thought of me?
It's time we set this free

Howling at the moon,
Because I don't know where it started.
Track Name: Gold Country
Her first green was gold,
South Fork River sold.
Cresting the Siskiyou,
Destiny's pass through.
The 'Niners built towers,
Vanished with the hours.

He writes a letter home,
He found an open road.

In Rail Road, a flower,
Only for the hour
Then dawn ran into day,
Nothing gold would stay.

He writes a letter home,
He found an open road.
She's speaking through the radio.

He writes a letter home,
He found an open road.
She's speaking through the radio.
It's time to go for broke.
Track Name: Detroit
A hollow silence fills the room
The shadow darker, as it looms
The sun is rising while the city's coming to

An empty promise made for two,
A sinking feeling to subdue
The final flicker as the light burns out too soon
The smoke that's rising through the flue

Somewhere over the ocean,
Caught up in the notion
That you're fading away.

The flower torn out from the root
A single point left to refute
The moon is rising while the city's coming to
A wizened flower past it's bloom.

Somewhere over the ocean,
Caught up in the notion
That you're fading away.
Track Name: Honest Man
With the blink of an eye,
Never thought to say goodbye.
Still he struggles to the shore,
Things aren't changing anymore.
Never one to seek the light,
Left instead to face the night.
The final judgment misconstrued,
Solace gained in what they knew.

He won't say, what he's waiting for.
He won't stray, from what he came here for.

The dream allowed him to pretend,
This wasn't how he'd meet his end.
But soon the legend came to light,
The fiction hidden in plain sight.
As he learned to live without,
Those who knew him had no doubt
This had always been the plan,
Set to leave, an honest man.

He won't say, what he's waiting for.
He won't stray, from what he came here for.
Track Name: Undone
This won't be the last time, can't stop,
Next in line for the wage of sin.
No one knows when it's going to begin,
Passing time in his father's skin.

He came undone.
They'll say, some day -
He's his father's son.

Seven pictures on the wall,
Hidden voices start to call.
Number eight is still a thought,
Filling needs that can't be bought.

He came undone.
They'll say, some day -
He's his father's son.

He always knew that he's the one,
When he thinks about the next, it's done.
Before they knew it, he struck again.
His mind confused, his only friend.
Track Name: California
Innocence lost, wouldn't you agree?
Telephone calls, floating in the breeze.
Quietly long; city by the sea.
Deafening thoughts telling me to breathe.

I'm going back to California,
(And) leaving everything behind.
No more time for hesitation,
No more time to change my mind.

Confident talk, blinded by the trees.
Never in doubt, following your lead.
Time to move on, learn to set it free.
Deafening thoughts, telling me to leave.

I'm going back to California,
(And) leaving everything behind.
No more time for hesitation,
No more time to change my mind.
