Track Name: Zero
ZERO

I'm best friends with zero
For being nothing at all
I hear all my heroes
Laughing when I fall

Think I'm in love with zero
Cause it feels like nothing at all
A thought that scares the people
That's what turns them off

Come undone
When the sun
Light grows dim
And fear makes fun proud

I have no pride
I have nothing

Feeling far away
Growing sick inside my mind
Feeling far away
Counting days and killing time
Growing sick inside my mind

Oh holy lonely zero
Your seeds I reap to sow
Speak in tongues of the harrow
Whisper thru my bones

Walk beside me, guide me
My shadow and my ghost
Darkness follows blindly
We dream between it's jaws

A broken soul on a winding road
Where death blooms for rows and rows
Well I lost god in a stranger's hand
And sold my blood to the promised land
Amen

Lay me down beneath your feet
You can walk all over me
I'm happy to become nothing
Divided by my very own zero
Track Name: A Mile Beneath
A MILE BENEATH

Tonight I am gambling
With my life on the line
Cause I'm sick of losing
Half my mind

The future unwinding
Past highway signs
Feels fucking crazy
And the changing tides
Can drag you down

A mile beneath
The furthest reach
Of the sun
And everyone

We had our fair warning
From blood red moon to ashen morning
Now the night is gone and I'm grieving
If I find a way, I'll be leaving

My friend you are distant
As horizon lines
I feel you fading
Into desert sky

Will the veil be lifted
When the daylight dies
And the world is burning
Down inside your shining eyes?

A mile beneath
The furthest reach
Track Name: The Barn Burning
THE BARN BURNING

Sometimes I don't wanna be here
Sometimes I don't wanna be
Anywhere at all

Heard some ghost
From the barn
Cried for them
All night long
Lock the door
Strike the match
What was here before
Is now gone at last

Set it all on fire

Ashes fallen
Down to the ground tonight

Mourning black bird
Circling smoke signal

The lonesome unknown
Widows every desert road
Ever known
Track Name: Distance
DISTANCE

Anxious lovers in confusion lie
Cosmic serpents bound their eyes
To the sweet desert where flowers bloom
For need of rain and a dark monsoon

Well I miss some friends
And a love so true
The speeding freight train
Leaves too soon

But I won't give up
Though it feels so lost
The stars keep turning
Nothing stops

So I take what medicine
Will cure this mood
Of highway memories
Of endless blues
Of all your clothing
And the way you moved
And made your tinctures
And grew your food

You opened up my boxed-in heart
You swung the axe
You hit the mark
My mind was empty
But I still cared
So I'll be waiting
For you out there

Distance will not defeat us
Time may still repeat us
