Track Name: MY SISTER
won't you come on back
come home now
my sister

we don't need to fight no more
my sister

we could just let go
just let go

so wont you come on back
come home now
my sister

you're gonna be dead before too long
my sister
we're all gonna be dead before too long

we could just let go
just let go

you don't need to cry no more

we don't need to fight no more
my sister

we could just let go

won't you come on back
come home now
my sister

why did you go?
Track Name: OUR HEARTS
it began to rain
the moment we took shelter
and the western sun
was fighting for the sky

our bodies weren't big enough
our bodies weren't big enough
for all the hope that we had

our hearts were on fire

there was nothing in my head
no history
no waiting
no memory
no fate

there was only one moment
only one moment
that we'd ever know

our hearts were on fire

and it burned in our bones

our hearts were on fire
Track Name: YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE
When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

You'll never walk alone
Track Name: UKE SONG
JIB
thank you Gary
for the ukulele
wrapped up all pretty 
and brought over unexpectedly
yesterday

GARY
You’re welcome
baby

JIB
I’ve only picked it up
a couple of times
But you can see already
how expertly I plaaaaaaay
It

you've only taught me
these two chords
and as far as I can tell
they don’t work with any
other songs

Except for this one
that I’m just making up
but hey I think it’s pretty good
Considering it didn’t exist
30 seconds ago
and realistically
I can’t play it wrong

GARY
that's true

JIB
making up a song
isn’t totally unlike unwrapping a present
you don’t know what you’ll find
you’ve just got to cut a few strings
rip through the paper
open it up
and take a look inside

of the song, I mean
Not the present
or well technically I guess it’s both
cuz it's a metaphor and that's what songwriting is

Now we rock the chorus…

JIB MARRIS
What’s inside the song? Goodnight
Inside the song? My girl
What’s in there?
What’s inside the song? Let your dreams take you
All over the world
Now you harmonize, Gar

JIB & GARY MARRIS (con’t)
What’s inside the song? Fly anywhere you
Inside the song? Want to go
What’s in there?
What’s inside the song? I love you so

What if I’m afraid to Goodnight
open it my girl
It might turn out wrong Let your dreams take you
All over the world
What’s inside the song? Fly anywhere you
Inside the song? Want to go
Inside the song?
Inside the song? I love you so
Track Name: NAKED CASH RODEO
It’s getting cold, I’m underdressed / / /
I’m still not sold, on this whole mess / / /
You told me - give it all away — Just trust, it will come back someday

I gave my voice, I gave my time / / /
Was there a choice, and was it mine? / / /
I gave up every stitch I had — I gave you everything you asked....

Now nothing left except this faith — This old idea it’s gonna rain....

Do you think that the stars
Are going to spend their light on you?
do you think that the stars
give a shit what you might do?

Everybody’s naked in the woods
and everybody’s trying to be good
You say you have nothing left to lose
that’s just a story......

and I still wanna give it all away.....
I just wanna give it all away........
I still wanna give it all away.........

and if the the stars
won’t shed their light on you
then maybe the world
will give a shit what you’ve been through

and if the world
isn’t spinning for you
i will give up myself
for a little piece of [you].

billions of us all looking for love
billions of eyes all fixed on the stars above
anxious for the fiery finale
something on which we can agree
there are some things
on which we can agree
Track Name: THE CHILD WHO WENT FORTH TO LEARN FEAR
I don’t want to scare you but we need to talk.
It’s only fair that you know a few things about me, before we start
And if you determine after learning of this little issue of mine
That you need to go
I won’t be surprised.

You strike me as someone who’s seen quite a lot.
But in my honest opinion I doubt this’ll work — like you thought.
There’s something specific I need you to do — if you’re up to the task (which you don’t seem to be from the way that you’re still staring back with no change of expression)
But hey — you can give it a shot.

I wish I was, I wish I was
I wish I wish i wish i was
I wish I was, I wish I was, i wish i was afraid because...

I’ve seen how people work
I’ve watched them all these years
They are not driven by ambition
All their motors run on fear

Everyone afraid of aging, dying
Being lonely, missing out
Terrified of moving on
but scared of staying here

I bared my neck to the teeth of a knife
The’ve held my head under the water for minutes. I didn’t mind
I’ve been blind, bound and tied at the mercy of strangers, they beat me,
whatever
My heart didn’t race. I was fine.

I got them to hang me from terrible heights
They took me to places of poverty, malice, unspeakable war,
I have seen people die.
They’ve left me at night in the heart of the forest, the air full of noises, the
creatures that eat us
just feet from my face , I did not bat an eye.

I wish I was, I wish I was
I wish I was afraid because
I wish I was, I wish I was, afraid, afraid, I wish because....
I wish I was, I wish I was
I wish I was afraid because
I wish I was I wish because
if you’re not scared, you’re not in love

I’ve seen how people work
I’ve watched them all these years
They are not driven by ambition
All their motors run on fear
Everyone afraid of aging, dying
Being lonely, missing out
Terrified of moving on
Scared of staying here

Help me understand
Fear.

Will you
teach me
to fear?
Track Name: WOLF SONG
Who’s that? Who’s there?
Outside? What’s that sound?
Who’s there? Hello? Is that you?
Who’s that? You came back!

I hear something ... at the window
I hear breathing ... through the keyhole
is that you dad? ... have you fin'ly
come on back home ... to your fam'ly
it's been so long ... since you left us
all alone here ... do you expect us
to remember ... what you look like
I remember ... what you looked like....

you said you'd be back when that old clock
struck six -- you said keep all them doors locked
but that was twelve years and 9 months ago

and now I'm not sure I should open the door
now I'm not sure I should open the door

you look a little bit ... like my father did
he had hair like yours ... I remember it
yours it dirty though ... for good reason
you've been out there for 64 seasons

you said you were out fetching dinner
and though I want nothing more than to let you in
there's something... in the tambour
of your breathing... unfamiliar
but look a little bit, like my father did
you look a little bit like my father didn’t

now I will devour you whole
I am crunching your bones
I have no conscience
no remorse ... or soul
just greed
so feed
just feed me...

Who’s that? Smashing glass?
Scratching - thrashing - screaming my name
Twitching threatening and shaking the latch
Dad is that you, are you back?

you said you'd be back when that old clock
struck six -- you said keep all them doors locked
but that was twelve years and 9 months ago
and now I'm not sure I should open the door
now I'm not sure I should open the door
now I'm not sure I should open the door
Track Name: THE FISHERMAN'S WIFE
My baby doll
Could you just go
Down to the sushi bar and get me what I want

You know I want a car 
I want a dress
I want a bag that’s big enough to fit My seven hundred friends

We’re gonna need a miracle
We’re gonna need a plan
We’re gonna HAVE to find
Someplace to go

We’re out here in the water with our pockets full of sand
And the sinking souls around us yelling 
No… no… no!

We’re gonna need a bigger
Boat
For all this
Shit
We can’t just go around pretending everyone is gonna fit

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I have always been a liar
Sorry, life’s a fucking bitch

I want a castle
In the country
I want a loft downtown
I wanna call you 
When I want you
But I don’t want you hanging around

And while you’re out dear
Get me a church dear
Not some strip mall shit 
I’m talking real stained glass

And my believers
People with class
I’m gonna hang out on my alter in my golden robe and crown professing All my propaganda while they kiss my ass

We’re gonna need a miracle
We’re gonna need a plan
We’re gonna have to find someplace to go

We’re stuck here in a lifeboat with our amputated hands
And our automated captain yelling
Row… row… row!

We’re gonna need a bigger
Boat
For all this
Shit

We can’t just go around pretending 
Everyone is gonna fit

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I have always been a liar
Sorry, life’s a fucking bitch

What’s with the storm over-
Head? All those white caps? I’m
Feeling my wishes sink
Back under water. My
Dreamboat is crumbling
All ‘round my bed and I
Think I just watched all my
Treasure chests floating
Away with the circus you
Made from the bones of my
Husband and children and
Now that the water is
Up to my petticoat
I am beginning to
Wonder how likely it
Is that I’ll float with my
Wrists bound with jewelry
Body of corsetry
Shining brass livery
From my head to my feet......

We’re gonna need a bigger
Boat
For all this
Shit

We can’t just go around pretending 
Everyone is gonna fit

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I have always been a liar
Sorry, life’s a bitch

A bigger
Boat
For all this
Fish

We’re gonna murder all the oceans
With a fucked up wish

I know I
Told you
I promised
It

But I was lying when I promised
And I’ve always been a liar
you’re not getting on this boat
So fucking
Live
With
It
Track Name: OLD SULTAN
Oh, I’m so sorry
today Is the day

Please don’t look at me
That way

You can put all of your body’s
weight onto me

You've been
A loyal friend
But everything
comes to an end

Now you won’t eat
and your eyes are blind
but you’ll still be with us
on the other…

Side. . .
On the other
Side. . .
On the other
Side. . .

We’ll still dance with you
your body of vapor and light

We’ll always remember you
In our prayers
At the end of the night

This just can’t be the end
I believe we’ll meet again
And I pray you’re leaping
Into the sky
And howling at the shadows

On the other
Side. . .
On the other
Side. . .
On the other
Side. . .
On the other
Side. . .

On the other
Side. . .
On the other
Side. . .

You can let go
You can go
Why won’t you leave me alone?

You can let go
You can go
Why won’t you leave me alone?
Track Name: BOX SONG
Box on a desk
Next to a castle of glass
They bought from the airport
The price on the back
Shelves overflow
With photographs and bones
A museum of someone
Who will never be known

Pennies for thoughts
That cost a mountain of debt
Rusting in bottles
They’ll never come to collect
They’ll never come to collect

And you were sure that you could keep it all
Off in a tower where there’d always be space
And you were sure that if you read it all
You would eventually come across your own name

Daffodils hanging off a rearview of lies
You keep your foot on the pedal
And you can’t see outside

Boxes of novels
Fill all the seats and the trunk
There’s barely room for a driver
In this treasure chest of junk

And the tower is crumbling
And you are thinking of running
From all these years of commitment
To keep this dead garden growing
To keep this dead garden growing

And you were sure that you could learn it all
And if you did than you would always be safe
And you were sure that you could use it all
To build a fortress they could never take

It’s got to be around here somewhere
Maybe you’re really going mad
Maybe it’s buried in the old school
Maybe you never really-

And now you’re starting look 
Like someone in a book
You’ve tucked yourself inside 
Your body pressed and dried

Fairies and princes
And the story doesn’t change
He keeps slaying the dragon
She’s still chained to the cage

And it’s time to retire 
But you can’t give up the title
As the head of collections
For these dead letter files
For these dead letter files

And you were sure that you could keep it all locked
And all the dark things would never get lit
And you were sure that you could keep them out
And you were sure that you could keep yourself hid

It’s got to be around here somewhere
Maybe it’s under mom and dad
Maybe you wrote it in your diary
Maybe you never really-
It’s got to be around here somewhere
Maybe you Gave it to your son
Maybe it’s time you just admit that
Maybe the only choice you have

Is passing it on...

Everything you have
And everything you’ve done
Is being passed on
Track Name: DEATH IS NOT THE END
Death is not the end
For I'll see you again
Maybe not the way we intend
But know this is not the end

Death is not the end
For we will feel each other again
Though I can’t say where or when
I know this is not the end

Now go and do your
Sleepless dreaming
Sign your contracts
Do your healing
And everything
That might have been
If there is desire
Can be again
‘Cause death is not the end

Death is not the end
My loving friend
There are ways we might love again
Perhaps not in the very same way it's always been

And I know this is not what i’ve always been told
‘Cause I still feel you above
All around and below
And I’d trade all the knowledge
In my damn eternal soul
For one more touch

But today this is enough
My friend

That I know death is not the end
I know death is not the end
Yes I know death is not the end
