Track Name: Des Moines River Conference
Everybody knows... Head to your toes... your part of the memory.
It seemed so easy to believe, so easy to see... what was ahead of me.
I'm coming home.
1989 weighs on my mind... part of the chemistry.
We learned computerized command. I can’t understand.
What are you feeding me?
I'm coming home.
Everybody knows someone who can't escape from yesterday. Their hallways lined with better times... repeat the story and you'll find that everybody knows someone who can't escape from yesterday. Their hallways lined with better times repeat the story and you'll find...
Images will grow... pictures will show... pages of history.
So here's to you DMRC, and all that you mean... now just a memory.
I'm coming home.
Track Name: The Trigger Cut
Open-ended promises
Dressed to let her go
Searching for the trigger cut
Just to let her know
On a night like this...only one thing I will miss.
On a night like this...on a night like this.
Dressed in vinyl, 33
Needle on the round
Ties her to the trigger cut
Once her favorite sound
On a night like this...only one thing she will miss.
On a night like this...on a night like this.
Track Name: Gutters & Graves
Some dreams are as real as they seem
In the morning he knows when he wakes up and goes
It's another waste of time.
And he's not going to change his mind.
Gutters and graves
And soon he believes he's as real as the trees
But the leaves down below scatter dead on the snow
It's another waste of time
And he's not going to change his mind.
I've seen the markers planted...straight-line memories
I've seen the people on the street believe in defeat
and it brings them to their knees.
Some dreams are as real as machines
When the engine lets go...it was all just a show
And another waste of time
And he's not going to change his mind.
Track Name: Hope You Know
Will we hear the chimes
When the clock hand lands on nine?
Rewind...back in the day we'd smile.
Tell me you'll pull through
There's so much left we could do
I'm not ready to let you go
But I love you...hope you know
And she said...
Work can wait my child
But you go that extra mile
Rewind...back in the day we'd smile.
Time takes hold my dear
Even though I'm leaving here
Don't you carry a heavy load
Was a good life...hope you know
And he said...
Track Name: Gray
We go up and down and around
One-way ticket...talk of the town
Skywalks...political talks...these insurance games are all the same
Blue bridges...235 in a picture frame.
It snows...that's ok and it shows.
Some say "watered down," but it grows
The Travelers light in the night on an empty skyline
I don't mind
A walk through Waterworks Park...just to find the time.
We go up and down and around
You say "look at all that we've found."
A two-tone chemical glaze observation raises questions here
Our lake is grayer than gray but the coast is clear.
Track Name: Lampshade Parade
Setbacks are scheduled for tomorrow
But it's getting better every day
No lampshade parades in this house
We've thrown the light bulbs all away
Under setting sun...no time to think about what went wrong...oh oh
What's done is done...when vinyl vindication plays ‘til dawn...oh oh
80 proof visions of the future
Vacancies in the ice cube tray
No street side silhouettes in this town
We've thrown the light bulbs all away
Under setting sun...no time to think about what went wrong...oh oh
What's done is done...when vinyl vindication plays ‘til dawn...oh oh
When will you come back around?
You know it's been a long, long while
You say...you say you've seen a difference
I say you've always made me smile
Setbacks are scheduled for tomorrow
But it's getting better every day
No lampshade parades in this house
We've thrown the light bulbs all away
Under setting sun...no time to think about what went wrong...oh oh
What's done is done...when vinyl vindication plays ‘til dawn...oh oh
Track Name: Waiting
I'm waiting... it's so frustrating
I hope you someday will come true
Blonde Comet pick me up and take me away...take me away
Oh my
Some say it's so overrated
Outdated...and power-faded
But when it picks me up it takes me away...takes me away
Oh my
This is a new beginning
With second chances thinning
Blonde Comet pick me up and take me away...take me away
Oh my
Track Name: Rain Fade
It's always lonely when it's cold outside
It's getting colder everyday
He only calls her when it's cold outside
She only answers when it rains
"It's always lonely at the top," she'd say
I'll never make it anyway
"Your smiling face should stay downstairs," she'd say
That's where I take it everyday
It's cold outside
That's where I hide
And what she'd say
It's rain fade
