Track Name: Cardboard Cutouts (Acoustic)
I got scissors. I got glue. Cut out cardboard, the shape is you.
And I'll make one just for me the same and I'll give it a brand new,
Name so it well presents me, with your chin rested in your palm.
I will pull on strings and mouth the words bop Bop BOP.

And our cardboard will be best friends and if we fight then we'll make amends.
And if you find something wrong with me, I can depend you'll fix it.
Please I am at your service, entertainment and escape.
You can burden me with every problem, my cardboard will bear the weight.
It's strong and sturdy, has no feelings, but it doesn't feel for you.
It's an empty mouth you're sticking your tongue through.
Track Name: An old vaudeville number written by Ada Jones, Billy Murray, Evelyn Nesbit and Buster Keaton
Before the sky was blue, I knew that you loved me too,
But then there always comes a day I should have known you wouldn't stay and...

Lost in the breeze, no anchors keep me down,
When you're with me, I somehow stay on ground.

So here I float along, out of control just following following following
Hoping you'll take me back, this life of shame without you leaves me...

Lost in the breeze, no anchors keep me down,
When you're with me, I somehow stay on ground.
Track Name: White Hand Religion (Acoustic)
Demon Demon Demon, oh this passion in my chest, following your dreams you'll only fall.
I've questioned all my motivation being here right now,
Chasing six colors won't get you gold.
Chasing six colors won't get you gold.

Compliments don't pay the bills in my mouth,
But it's so enjoyable to thrash about,
Searching for Lincoln through vibrating strings,
And hallowing my art, by how the trail has broken me.

Angel Angel Angel, balancing upon my neck, the weight of all the love that I've received.
With all this kindness crushing me because it's unreturned,
A debt so heavy it's suffocating me.
A debt so heavy it's suffocating me.

Blinded by the hands I'm trying to lead,
And giving the advice that I mostly need,
If all art reflects our love then we're as ugly as we feel,
But immature poets imitate, mature poets steal.

If you wanted your own song, you wouldn't ask you'd sing along.
Track Name: Preparing for Alaska, Chiasmus or John Steinbeck (Alternate)
Well I used to be a lover up until the day I lost my love,
Now she is gone, scattered upon, a wind whipped dawn.
And I used to be a sailor up until the day that she did drown,
Her body found, debris around, entwined and crowned.

Oh my darling memory, is there any way that you'll return to me?
Cause this fallen man is staring at pine boxes as if they're destiny.

Well I used to be a statesman up until the day I found that I,
Was more inclined, to simple life, and to my wife.
And I used to be a miser up until the day I did surmise,
There was no prize, or joy inclined, by what you buy.

There's more to life than everything you see and a wedding ring won't make a bride to be.
But you can bet the love you give will just come back around as the love you receive.

And I'm sitting here lost everything I've loved,
Oh my darling dear please wait for me above,
And if anyone can share a reason why I should keep living please speak up...
Track Name: JP Haynie
I've got a new song I've been singing
and everytime it leaves my lips it's bringing me back home to you
but you haven't got a clue, that I'd put you in a song you wouldn't dare assume.

And I've lost interest listening to anyone else
and likewise see no point in having anybody listening to me,
displaying my amenities, I guess I just need time to believe.

And nobody can reach me like the ones I've pushed away,
hoping they'll follow their hearts and somehow I'll find just one to stay,
A thespian from the stage, keep me believing in this play and that my part won't be replaced.
Track Name: The Parting Song for those who are returning
Can you please send my darling a note saying I love you?
Cause I tried to tell her a million times I just can't seem to get through.
I'm hoping now that I'm a million miles away,
She will remember me and my lips and miss my face she once kissed dear.

I've tried so hard to tell her I'm hoping this might work,
Maybe this could change forever I know I've been an idiot.
But I'm sick of this stale friendship aging more,
When all I've ever wanted was her to adore and I swear I would.

I think of you everywhere I go, I dream you're with me when alone,
Could you surprise me one day? Could you kiss these eyes one day?

Don't park your car let's drive so you're close to me, stay close to me, please.
Track Name: You aim for stars but can't touch clouds aka They never found D.B. Cooper
I was living in a dream, hopeful idealism was blinding me,
A throng of strangers at my feet, so busy lighting candles and forcing me with helium to breathe.

I worked so hard and for so long, to watch so many others get just what I want,
I'll choke to death on swallowed pride, I married failure and can't run far enough from my bride.

I want to leave this room, I want to feel like new,
I want to see what others see in me, I want to feel like life is worth living.

You aim for stars but can't touch clouds.
Track Name: Like, Listen To
I was hoping you might be, be right here forever,
I was hoping you might stay, stay right here for now.

Oh Death, I see a reflection I don't recognize
Oh Death, I see a darkness take root in my eyes
Track Name: Jimmy Carter, who gets blamed when it's all our fault. (Alternate Version)
There's a blockade of pressing pawns,
I doubt my passion can make up the lack thereof.
Throwing words meanwhile their withers are unwrung,
Self righteous spinsters crash and clatter all for naught.

The baby boomers fought one battle then left us with war,
Became a silk stocking brigade without candor.
A throng of carpet knights whose chivalry is only proof to me,
Not much has changed throughout centuries.

They're selling discontent for a cheap price,
You'll pay top dollar getting scraped and getting stained.
Carrying accoutrements like paper bags,
Depending on them to hold strong despite the rain.

I've been carving hieroglyphics deep into my knees,
You've been throwing your friends corpses out to sea.
Though we'll never see our actions measured we'll carry the weight,
Of our decisions, sometimes soon, sometimes late.
Track Name: Life is dearer than all the schemes in which we seek to know it.
This animosity and how we disagree about belief,
Fingers pointing, voices screaming, till we're hoarse.
But oh couldn't we just find, some sort of compromise?

With faces making claims, not knowing where they aim or how they hit,
Faith flung facts and harpoon hands, self righteous is picking a side and bigotry is hatred in your mind.
But oh couldn't we just find, some sort of compromise?
Track Name: An old vaudeville number written by Ada Jones,Billy Murray, Evelyn Nesbit and Buster Keaton (Demo)
Before the sky was blue, I knew that you loved me too,
But then there always comes a day I should have known you wouldn't stay and...

Lost in the breeze, no anchors keep me down,
When you're with me, I somehow stay on ground.

So here I float along, out of control just following following following
Hoping you'll take me back, this life of shame without you leaves me...

Lost in the breeze, no anchors keep me down,
When you're with me, I somehow stay on ground.
