Track Name: Phantom Ride
By a rusty iron tank
Where the maiden hair hangs
And all of the wind up in the trees
Is all that you hear
Come on down
Feel the heat
All around you timbers crack
There’s a storm rising
All dusty and blue
And the one that you love is in a void
Of black

Let go of the world
And ride this train
To the other side
Phantom ride

Chained to the grill of a moving train
Time and space collide
The eagle eye is on the ground
The rodent at the sky
Earth will quake
And wheels will shake
Tracks will buckle and crack
A carpet bagger in a mohair suit
Stops to tip his hat

Let go of the world
But always beware
Of your pride
Phantom ride

From the gulf and down to desert sands
Over mountains and divide
When life is coming at you
It’s like a phantom ride

Let go of the world
And ride this train
To the other side
Phantom ride

Let go of the world
But always beware
Of your pride
Phantom ride
Track Name: Self Made Man
I’m a self-made man
I made myself do
All of those things
That I ought not do

I’m a selfish man
I thought you knew
It’s shouted in halls
And whispered in the pews

I got my pick and spade
I’m digging my own grave
One foot in the gates
And the other on the blade

I’ve been torn down
I’ve been humbled
And the roads that I paved
Have all washed away
I have torn out
All of your lessons
These are confessions
Of a self-made man

I’m a fire brand
All cinder and spark
On the open sea
Atop a burning ark

It was the devils plan
For a gambling man
When the ace is marked
And the dice are bad

I’ve been torn down
I’ve been humbled
And the roads that I paved
Have all washed away
I have torn out
All of your lessons
These are confessions
Of a self-made man

These are confessions
Of a self-made man
Track Name: Open Window
Stand near an open window
Lean a little closer
Come to me
Won’t you hear my whisper?

Like a drunken waltz
Or a promise made
Like a shining light
Or the smell of rain

I…I am the wind
When you can’t find the truth
I take truth away
If you just say my name

Stand near an open window
Lean a little closer
Come to me
Won’t you hear my whisper?

I…I am the wind
When you can’t find the truth
I take truth away
If you just say my name
Track Name: Back To The Bone
All I want’s a melody
To ride with me tonight
The skies the limit for this fricasee
And the lights are shining bright
All aboard the scene is set
For this journey to begin
This life that Ive been in
Is starting to wear pretty thin
Cos all I really wanna do
Is walk on the open road
To walk a mile in your shoes
To end where all the rivers flow
The open road has called my name
And I will soon be free
Leave behind these empty dreams
Kick this misery

Some people say that there’s nothing to find}
But I don’t wanna hear that at all
Some people say that Im walking away
But sometimes you got to walk to feel the fall.
Cos all I really wanna do
Is walk on the open road
To walk a mile in your shoes
To float to where the rivers flow
Im travlin out to where the quiet is loud
l jump from stone to stone
Living life out of this ol bag
Its stripped me back to the bone
Livin life out of this ol bag
Has stripped me back to the bone
Track Name: Hold On
You stood by the alter
A ring in your hand
Watching the seconds role by
You’re thinking and dreaming
About the days of your life
Wondering how times go by

You stood by the flame tree
With a fire in your heart
Praying that good times might come
But there’s still some darkness
Left in this night
There’s still some darkness to come

Hold on
Hold on…

That fire is burning
Your life to the ground
But fuel is all you have for the flame
When it is over, only ashes remain
And you can put a price to the pain
Then you can buy back in the game

Hold on
Hold on…

This life can spin you round
It’ll chew you up
Then spit you out
And no one can understand
What you’re talking about

You stand with your family
With love in your heart
Times that you could not foresee
You’re thinking and dreaming about those times in your life
Wondering how times go by
And you know it going to be alright

Hold on
Hold on…
Track Name: Johanna
Get it over with
Speak your mind
And all memories
Will be revealed in time
It seems I didn’t understand
Well I thought I did
But I was wrong

You say it feels
So good to leave
To become someone unknown
They never see you coming
How were they to know?

Johanna…

I’m just a stranger
Left inside a dream
A burning cloud lights my day
I’m alone but for your name
So let me sing it one time
Again

Johanna…

I’m alone but for your name
So let me sing it one time
Again

Johanna…
Track Name: Final Call
I cant stand that look on your face
Your posing like you own the place
When you know
It aint like that

Put yourself in regular shoes
Your so scared cos you think that you’ll lose
All you have
But it aint like that

Can you it see it coming to you
Gonna feel it shoot through you
Right now

Walkin over hallowed ground
Those crushing bones is the only sound
That you hear
And it aint so bad to you

You’ve never found what you’re looking for
Your standing outside beyond the bolted door
And the cold
Its eating you alive

Can you see it coming for you
Its gonna shoot through you
You know

The final chip is falling
Soon enough you’ll be calling
Again
Track Name: Lost Lover Blues
Going down a lonesome road
The wind begins to howl
The stars have all gone to bed
Ain’t no friend around

You came from another world
Just out of view
When I set out I always wanted
To find a place like that too

But no two hearts can be the same
It’s just a chance you choose
When you play the wheel of love
You may find that you wake up
One day with the lost lover blues

Here upon my sorrow
Beneath the sky
I lost my love gambling
It’s just like the roll of the dice

But no two hearts can be the same
It’s just a chance you choose
When you play the wheel of love
You may find that you wake up
One day with the lost lover blues
