Track Name: Borrowed Time
She waits long days veiled in white cotton
Dressed for all those faces she’s forgotten
Forgotten
She ain’t gonna go

Met a man dressed in robes of gold satin
He’s blessed her for all things that she let happen
Climbing high to heaven’s gate
To knock firm on the door
She asks him for more borrowed time
Like which he gave before
Before, she ain’t gonna go

Sweet babe
can’t cross to the other side yet
Ain’t seen nothin’ at all

gonna ride on a dragon
Fire under your head
Before you’re finally called

Tiptoe from the man in the clouds
Until you finally fall
Track Name: Hourglass
Oh it seems that you’ve been here too long
You watch the sand fall down in your hourglass

clock is ticking and you're running out of time
the shorthand and the longhand racing by
Your hourglass

And the others how they point and stare
Their faces pressed up cold against your hourglass
But you’re tired, you’re chasing them all away
You’d rather dance with the shadows of the dying day
in your hourglass

in your hourglass
in your hourglass
in your hourglass
in your hourglass
in your hourglass
in your hourglass
Track Name: Jokes Like These
Well now she lift me up
She do me well
Took out a wand
Cast a magic spell

kissed my lips
she set me free
Put a cold heart warm
My lady majesty
Oh she told jokes like these

Well I ran to the master
Got down on my knees
I asked for her hand now
Oh I beg and plead

He sent me on my way
With nothing but a steed
He said only jesters
Make jokes like these

Through the winds I walked the fields of longing
The half moon wanes as my riders find their way
When two tall trees they got up and started walking
Chased me down that windy road again

Through the winds I walked fields of longing
The half moon wanes as my riders find their way
When two tall trees they got up and started walking
Chased me down that windy road again
Track Name: The Gardens
Across the land of whimsy
A reverie has passed
To the gardens where dreamers grow
The love I've found at last

Gripped with regret
and I'm seized with a song
For I gave you my heart
Oh you've been away for too long
Been away for too long

Come forth my darlin'
My sweet little bird
All I wanted to give to you
Was my undying word
Now your story it lies unspoken
It would have called for surprise
But your message lives on
Through the old and the wise
Old and the wise

Seasons are changing
Green grasses grow
And colors of red and gold
Stream down paths I've known

And with each travelled road
Is a tired, latent sun
And the skies fill with sadness
For the heart I never won
Track Name: Thieves
hunger, it’s a creepin' ghost
And a stealthy hand, it will rarely boast
I’ve been away
but I've come back to see
The haloes of holy little thieves
been there too long
got to get movin' along
to the places that'll do me no wrong

watch the children
break others' bread
rags to riches are
a favored friend
I’ve been away
but I've come back to see
The haloes of holy little thieves

same today
as is tomorrow
for those that beg, steal, loot & borrow

I been away
But I've come back to see
The haloes of holy little thieves
Been there too long
Got to get movin’ on
To places that'll do me no wrong

Thievin' men, travel coast to coast
they are the vagabonds
ain't got nowhere to go

I been away
but I've come back to see
the haloes of holy little thieves
been there too long
got to get movin' on
to the places that'll do me no wrong

Watch the children break
Others' bread
Rags to riches are
A favored friend for
Holy little thieves
Holy little thieves
Holy little thieves I am
A holy little thief
Oh holy little thieves
Track Name: Hurtin' Man
I gave my love out like a lonely child
to far out reaches of the land
I watched the devil cradle sunshine
fanned its flames beneath my hand

no rest for those in the wintertime
they're burnin' oil till the morn’
tellin’ tales of glory
only to be reborn
to be reborn

the moon it comes out a shinin’
to tell its brother to obey
but the sun keeps howlin’ more
to make a workin’ man pay

they build up strawmen in the daytime
then light a match beneath the hay
from dusk to dawn oh
it keeps on burnin’ now
burnin’ away
oh burnin’ away

in a dimly lit castle
hallways made up of stone
they'll send statues out to get you
cast you out of your home

be careful with every goblet
vials laced with cyanide
for vengeance is a virtue that a hurtin’ man
he will justify
