silent still
sun beats down
on my window sill
the sun hits the street
the pavement cracks
and the firestair creaks
the hair of the dog
kept me up all night
gonna make the day long
i gas up the car
i feel my toes burn
as they sink in the tar

waiting on the rain

a golden fish
throw a dime
and make a wish
hold me in your arms
until i get thrown back
to cujo’s yard
‘till i get thrown back
to cujo’s yard
silent still
sparrow on my window sill
calling out
a song rings from his tiny mouth
i waited on the rain
it fell from the sky
when the evening came
i was swallowing the town
i could not breathe
until the rain came down

waiting on a change

garden won’t you grow a tree
and wrap the pavement with your leaves
river current carry me
from the land and out to sea
dragon wake up from your rest
and burn it up with fire breath
breath of wind come turn the page
and usher in another age
when the storm comes
over the sea
when the storm comes
over the fields
when the storm comes
over the trees
when the storm comes
where will you be?
where will you be?

silent still
rain tap taps
on my window sill
caught an overnight train
and my eyelids fell
just like the rain
a hundred, thousand feet of flight
i was dancing with
the northern lights
i was dancing with
the northern lights

waiting on the sun
when’s he gonna come?
i’m waiting on the sun
to show his face
and tell me that i’m done

release me from your arms
it's time to get thrown back
to cujo’s yard
won’t you throw me back
to cujo’s yard
time to throw me back
throw me back to the dogs
