Track Name: Into Blue
Well I found you in place inside my head
You call me Sweet Thing as we lie around in your bed
Well I never knew what a good man really was
He calls me beautiful and he says Babe you know it’s just because

Well I found you in a river stream running through
We melted like sand and we faded into blue
Into blue yeah Baby that’s where I found you

Well I can’t help but to really see
The way you look the way you speak the way you move towards me
Well someone tell me how I feel
I look into those eyes and I see everything that’s ever really been real

Well I found you in a river stream running through
We melted like sand and we faded into blue
Into blue yeah Baby that’s where I found you

Well I can tell you our souls they are free
Waking up singing out
The middle of you yeah in the middle of me

Well I found you in a river stream running through
We melted like sand and we faded into blue
Into blue yeah Baby that’s where I found you
Track Name: Speed of Your Love
I am falling I am falling can’t stop spinning
In my mind I find a place with you
He dreams colors and textures
Silk and sheens and satin greens
Well you make me dizzy
With the speed of your love

Well here I am all alone again
Here I am with wood in my hands because I am lost
Well you look at me like you look at the others
And if you looked at me well you might discover
That I am yours
I am yours

Inside my mind I try to find
Inside I go
With a red dress she goes

Well here I am trying to recover
All I want to do is discover the speed of your love
Speed of your love
Of your love
Track Name: Winter White
Winter White is on the rise
Roads and paths fall from the sky in flight
She wipes her heart slate from white
And he falls down down down...

Steady beating is the calm
Presence towering in a room
Fate
He wipes her eyes with her tears
And she sings la la la...

And we all fall down
Swiftly beating comes around
He inscribes her heart with white
And we all divide
Ripened winter on the rise
Well we all fall down sometimes
Sometimes

Spirits awaken sweet summertime
And I inhale your breath with mine
Thrust taste sweetly devouring
Your sound

And we all fall down
Swiftly beating comes around
He inscribes her heart with white
And we all divide
Ripened winter on the rise
Well we all fall down
We all fall

And we all fall down
Swiftly beating comes around
He inscribes our hearts with white
And we all divide
Ripened winter on the rise
Well we all fall down sometimes
Sometimes
Track Name: Sweet Boy
I can’t right any more wrongs tonight
And I can’t put you in a song to make it feel right
The days and hours turn the moon
But you’re still the brightest star shining through

Every morning I wake up with love
Side to side from head to toe and above
You told me I might need to find someone new
But all the white in the world it couldn’t add up to be you

Hey Sweet Boy
Won’t you let me be with you
Hey my sweet boy
Just let me be with you

Oh the white falls down
On this sleepless girl’s town
Oh and without you
Is a world without light
A sky with no flight
My life without white

Hey Sweet Boy
Won’t you let me stay with you
Hey my sweet boy
I just want to be with you

I can’t fight any more wrongs tonight
Wrapped up in your love and turned white
Track Name: Dixie Down
Virgil Caine well it is my name
And I worked on that Danville train
‘til Stoneman’s cavalry came and tore up the tracks again
In the winter of ‘65
We were hungry just barely alive
By May the tenth Richmond fell
It was a time I remember ah so well

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went na na na...

Back with my wife in Tennessee
When one day she called to me
Virgil quick come out and see
That can’t be the Robert E. Lee
Now I don’t mind chopping wood
And I don’t care that the money’s no good
Take what you need and leave the rest
They should have never taken the very best

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went na na na...

Like my father before me
I am a working man
And like my brother before me
I take a rebel stand
Eighteen proud and brave
A Yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the mud below my feet
You can’t raise a Caine when he’s in defeat

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went na na na...
Track Name: The Hurt
If your hands could be like anything
They’d be like a burning flame
And if you think that you know me Boy
Well you better believe we’re not the same
Because I know who you are
And I know how little boys work
They can’t wash you in the river Boy
But they can’t wash away the hurt
They can’t wash away the hurt

And if I could just taste you Boy
I bet you taste like the sweetest cane
And if they follow you down into the trails
I’ll bet they’ll see your dust trail floating in the rain

Well he came walking down a moonlight trail
With the water by the road
And he just smiled at me as I unbuttoned down his coat
Say you got to be like me
Well then you’ll understand where they all went wrong
And he just smiled and he sang me a song
Said I know who you are and I know how little girls work
They can wash you in the river Girl but they can’t wash away the hurt
You can’t wash away the hurt

Well he came walking down the moonlight trail
With the water by the road
And he just grinned and I unbuttoned down his coat
Say you got to be like me
Well then you’ll understand where they all went wrong
And he just smiled and he sang me a song
Said I know who you are and you know I love your work
They can wash us in the river Boy but they can’t wash away the hurt
You can’t wash away the hurt

You can’t wash it away
Track Name: Pieris
Crack in the door
Blue on the walls
Let the light shine through
The green surrounds me
And reminds me
That the white is you

The blue inside me can untie
But the heart stays true
The dent surrounds me
And reminds me
That the vein is fused

Oh the white is you
Oh the white light surrounds you

Break in the night
Creeping down
But black is few
Shadows surround me
And remind me
That none is you

Pounding recedes with broken sleeves
And I have created what I can believe

The green surrounds me
And reminds me
That the white is you
Track Name: Ballou
Paint me a picture of where you are
And I’ll be there with you
Shine me a light that comes from your eyes
And I’ll find a way back to you

But the colors are misleading
Faces are being lost
Shoulder to shoulder we march
Just to be ghosts

Give me a sign that you’ll understand
If spirits have to let go
Sing me a song from the light of the land
And I’ll fly back to you

When the warmth of the sun hits your skin
It will be me it will be me and I will be there
Oh when the breeze hits your face
It will be me I will be there I will be there

But the colors they are misleading
Faces are being lost
Shoulder to shoulder we march
Just to be ghosts
To be ghosts
Track Name: The Mound
Why would you lead me here
Just to put me on the mound
Why would you lead me here
Just to throw me on the mound

Well I am used to this sort of thing
In the end it all feels the same
Well this old heart will keep on beating
Even when you’re sound in the mound
Oh the mound

Why would you lead me here
When you’re feeling pretty strange
If your colors are changing
And the dead rearrange

Just let me know
You know you could just let me go
Well I choose to look the other way it seems
But I can hear you know
You know well I can still hear
You know well I can hear
I can hear your sound in the mound
Oh the mound

This old heart will keep on beating
We will all lay sound in the mound
Oh the mound

Why would you lead me here
Just to throw me on the mound
Track Name: Leander
Leander
Won’t you come and visit the South
Leander
Father Abraham needs you now

Surrender
Mr. Cobb make us aware
Redeemer
The South shall prevail

Oh where red birds fly
We wait for the storm
In a sheet of red flame
Heroes are born

Fire at will fire at will
The demons of destruction are here
Fire at will fire at will
Stillwell get your gun in the air
Fire at will fire at will
Corinth is burning
Fire at will fire at will
The demons of destruction are here
Track Name: One Kiss
Feelings start to emerge again
It’s so hard to suppress them
My body it aches from within
For your love I would wait again

I know who you are and claim to be
No need to hide away
My love grows each day
For you I was meant to stay

Please don’t let me go
I want to feel you let me feel you
In my soul
Close your eyes let me taste
And for your love I would wait

Anticipation grows
And it grows at the back of me
Your lips waiting to see
For you I was meant to be

Please don’t let me go
I want to feel you let me feel you
In my soul
Close your eyes let me taste
And for your love I would wait

My dreams are real
I wake up to see
Your scent lingers on me
For eternity

Don’t leave me like this
All I want is just one more kiss
Track Name: Trench Duty (feat. Tim Zimmermann)
Why would you lead me here
Just to put me on the mound
Why would you lead me here
Just to throw me on the mound

Well I am used to this sort of thing
In the end it all feels the same
Well this old heart will keep on beating
Even when you’re sound in the mound
Oh the mound

They killed us not for character
Or some egregious sins
But for these badges on the outside
Of the shells we came here in

It was you who knew the strategy
You know I would have followed you ‘til dawn
And now we’re here beside this mound
Where longing spirits linger on

But I know you’re weary
Your heart combat-bound
You came here for a victory
But as for me I’m just a ghost within your memory
At the mound
Oh the mound

Why would you lead me here
When you’re feeling pretty strange
If your colors are changing
And the dead rearrange

Just let me know
You know you could let me go
Well I choose to look the other way it seems
But I can hear you know
You know well I can still hear
You know well I can hear
I can hear your sound in the mound
Oh the mound

I fell in a valley
Face down in blood and rain
Turn around retreat was sounded
But did you ever learn my name

Human flesh will die away
Mortal wounds will not be healed
But the tragedy today
You lost your faith upon this field

But I hope
Your heart will reconcile
Every hour becomes a year
Every inch becomes a mile
But you could swear right there
A hand reached up from underneath the pile

Oh I said
This old heart will keep on beating
It was you who knew the plans
This old heart will keep on beating
It was you who knew the way
This old heart will keep on beating
I said this heart will keep on beating
Beating
We will all lay sound in the mound
Oh the mound

Why would you lead me here
Just to throw me on the mound
Track Name: Father Abraham
Well the day has finally come
We weathered through the dark storm and the night
And we held the lucky ones

Please tell my mother
That I’m coming home
Dear brother John
You can put down your gun

Because the day has finally come

Marching
For hours and hours and hours
We marched through the fields
And through the fire
And were with the ones who fell

Oh Mr. Lincoln
We wish you were here
To see the devil’s army surrender
And your souls freed

Well I hear they call you Father Abraham
Father Abraham

We see your light
Keep shining your light
We followed your light
Father Abraham

Well the day has finally come
We weathered through the dark storm and the night
And we held the lucky ones
Oh lucky ones
The day has come
