Track Name: Time for Me
HERO:
My baby ran down her mortal clock
Maybe she’ll come back for Ragnarok
Maybe I’ll wait here until the day
I’m good at standing still anyway

Maybe I’m just having one bad year
Maybe it’s time to move on from here
I could have sworn I was twenty yesterday
How did all that time get away?

I put on my wristband at the gate,
What have I got to lose now anyway?

I’ll take some time for me, can you blame me?
Take some time for me today
I’ll take some time for me, can you blame me?
Gotta shake this blues away

I haven’t been this drunk in years,
So hand me the cheap wine and cheaper beers
The band is blasting out my ears,
But you and I don’t need to hear

I think I’m falling back in love
In one thousand pickup trucks
I got forty years of pain
I think I saved it all for today

I take off my anger in the sun,
As I take these pills down one by one

I’ll take some time for me, can you blame me?
Take some time for me today
I’ll take some time for me, can you blame me?
Gotta shake this blues away
Track Name: The Weight of Things
THE QUEEN OF BROKEN DREAMS:
Won’t you just forget about her?
Come and join us here in the blur
We’ll have ourselves a loving blast
Forget the future and the past
The sky’s about to open up
Down to overflow my cup
Let it wash over your head
Over the living and the dead, oh yeah

And if you need some help, I’m just a breath away
If you got a broken heart, upon my breast you’ll stay

I’m the queen of broken dreams,
I think I know the weight of things
Tell me what is solid gold,
In all your memories of old?
I can sing and I can scream,
The strangest thing you’ve ever seen,
What’s the sense in holding on
To every long forgotten song, oh yeah

All your memories can’t keep you warm at night
I’ll not suffer you to suffer in the light.
And if you need some help, I’m just a breath away
If you got a broken heart, upon my breast you’ll stay

QUEEN & HERO:
All your memories can’t keep you warm at night
I’ll not suffer you to suffer in the light.
And if you need some help, I’m just a breath away
If you got a broken heart, upon my breast you’ll stay
Track Name: Chaos Perfection
HERO:
Out of the dark night I wander into your glow
Where this encampment is squandered, I don’t know
How did these stars lend direction to men of old?
Into your chaos perfection I will fold
Into your chaos perfection I will fold

HERO & QUEEN:
What was your name, won’t you tell me, I don’t recall
Maybe it’s best if we don’t use names at all
Out in this eternal desert, it’s so cold
So into your chaos perfection, I will fold
Into your chaos perfection, I will fold
Track Name: Darling of Mine
VOICE ON THE WIND:
Darling of mine, where have you wandered?
Wake from your sleep and follow me yonder
Quick through the woods, old love of mine
I’ll have you back by morning time

Down in the vale, you are sinking
But that’s what you get with all of your drinking
My new apartment is in the heath,
You can’t erase me with lotus leaf
Track Name: Rock Bottom
MOURNING:
Hello, welcome to rock bottom
It ain’t so bad here, so smoke if you got ‘em
Down here you keep what you’re sure you’ve lost
What is the cost?
Don’t worry ‘bout the cost.

THE LOST LOVE:
Did you think that I’d forget your name?
Since I left, do you still know my face?
You can stay here with me

MOURNING:
Hey, stay here at rock bottom
They told you not to take the easy way, but boy you fought ‘em
Sure it hurts, but you’ll get used to that
Isn’t this where it’s at?
You wanna be where it’s at

THE LOST LOVE:
If you leave would you forget my name?
Who knows what the world would have you face
If you’re not down here with me?
Track Name: My Ghost
HERO:
And I could not bear the look upon her face
How was I supposed to stay?
So I turned around and left that place
And I put the past away.

And I drove out to this hotel bar
And I’m too high now to operate my car
And a sadder and a wiser man that I know you now are
With your sympathetic heart

Good riddance
I don’t need you
I don’t need anyone
I got my ghost

It was all so long ago
I hardly now can recollect that road
That brought me back to you now all those ages ago
No matter all the woods that I roam.

Good riddance
I don’t need you
I don’t need anyone
I got my ghost

And I’m haunted now

Well, good riddance
I don’t need you
I don’t need anyone
I don’t need anyone

Do you remember how it went?
The many ways my heart was bent?
The end of days has come and gone, and I will not repent
For the anger that I’ve caused,
For the liquor that I drank,
For the agony I spent.
