Track Name: Skipjack
I wish that I
Had something to hide
Then maybe you
Would feel more satisfied

Time feels too long
There’s a man on his way down
And you’re an empty song
Shakin through that town

Like an early dawn
They sell it pound for a pound
Won’t be no surprise
When I’m on the ground

It came to me
If I turned along the way
Then maybe we
Could learn from yesterday

Someday we’ll try
To stop begging for change
Learn to ask why
Nothing seems too strange

Time feels too long
You're a man on his way down
And he's an empty song
Shakin through that town

Every dollar gone
Stretched out on the sand
Looking like a hell
Of a man
Track Name: The Alameda
Well who gonna tell this story
Without saying you’re sorry
Don’t bother

Here come the great tomorrow
Who's left to see the sorrow
It’s just another day

So we’re standing on the rail and
And we're trying not to fail
Just to fake it

And you see the slide coming
Don’t even think of running
Can't see another way

When you’re feeling down and lonely
You think that you’re the only
One to see it coming

And you cross the Alameda
You say you'll never need her
You run, run, you’re running

Well, you say that life’s behind
And you play it like it blind
Till you taste it

You won't get a second chance
You gotta take a stance
Can't see another way

It's like the longest train
You go straight down to your Fait
To the station

As your life washes away
Better look another way
Can't see another day

When you’re feeling down and lonely
You think that you’re the only
One to see it coming

Then you cross the Alameda
You say you'll never need her
You run, run, you’re running
