Track Name: Quake
Better tell the story you don't wanna say
Rather keep, rather keep rather keep the peace
And be on your way
Gonna burn your heart out
Why you talk that way?

We all saw it coming, didn't know its name
Scattered birds and shattered nerves and twisted frames
And the moon low rising on the wreck of the bay
And the sun comes shining on another day
You're gonna burn your heart out
Gonna burn your heart out
Why you talk talk that way?

Tell me who pulled the trigger?
Yeah, tell me who stole the gun?
Who's got that matchstick lit under your tongue?
Who came a'knockin', who came to stay?
Who's got your words all laid out, baked and on display
You're gonna burn your heart out
Gonna burn your heart out
You're gonna burn your heart out
Why you talk talk that way?

You better tell the story you don't wanna say
Rather keep, rather keep rather keep the peace
And be on your way
Track Name: Walk Away
Devil, oh devil, what is it you've been dying to say
You've got a line a mile long outside your door
Of folks who'd rather lock their troubles away
You got an angel with an arrow and an alibi
On the roof ready to make his stand
I hope I made it plenty clear to you late last night
That you're never gonna get my hand

Help me Jesus to walk
Oh lord, I gotta walk away
I know love is gonna come for me one of these nights
'Til then I better walk away

Angel, my angel, was there something you was meaning to say
I've seen you sitting in the shadows all night long
Playing cards while the drunks play keep away
I hope you know that nothing good ever comes of nothing
In a place like this on this side of town
Still I appreciate you comin', tryin' to bend my ear
Get me up so I can get back down

Help me Jesus to walk
Oh lord, I gotta walk away
I know love is gonna come for me one of these nights
'Til then I better walk away

Mary, oh my Mary, you tried to wait up for the judgment day
But your TV turned to static and all that emphatic talking
Just scared the lord away
Now you sit here with a bottle almost every night
Making prayers and taking pains
To catch the man behind the bar with eyes like a star
He seems familiar, but you just can't place him

Help me Jesus to walk
Oh lord, I gotta walk away
I know love is gonna come for me one of these nights
'Til then I better walk away, help me Jesus
'Til then I better walk away, help me Jesus
'Til then...I better walk away
Track Name: White Moon
Board your house, here comes a big one.
Board your house, here comes a big one.
Thought you saw it coming, now it's too late to run.

Wooden nickels and a white flag.
Wooden nickels and a white flag.
Who's gonna save you know, who's gonna dig you out?

Bury your heart.
Bury to keep it from getting hurt.
You bury your heart.

Little sliver of a white moon.
Little sliver of a white moon.
Clear now but it's coming, it's coming soon.

Bury your heart.
Bury to keep it from getting hurt.
You bury your heart.
Track Name: Bigger than Darkness
You come to my window with a riddle and a kiss
Say you got something for me that I can't resist
You got something for me I can't resist, shouldn't bother trying
You come to my window and you rattle like the wind
Say you got something for me, you're gonna come in
You got something for me, you're gonna come in tonight

I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
I've got a love that's bigger than you
I've got a love that's bigger than anything you'll ever do
I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
I've got a love that's bigger than this
I've got a love that's bigger than darkness

The birds by the window hatch one by one
Til the little ones fall and the big ones run
And the wind gets its hands on the nest,
Scatters the shells like seeds
You come to me sometimes on days like today
When the words lose their grip and the leaves fall away
And there's nothing but a cold gray sky to pick you up, take you away

I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
I've got a love that's bigger than you
I've got a love that's bigger than anything you'll ever do
I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
I've got a love that's bigger than this
I've got a love that's bigger than darkness

Ooh...

Sometimes there aren't enough mirrors to break
Enough stories to fall, enough mountains to make
Of the kindness I crumple up 'cause I can't look it in the eye
But sometimes the end is just the means to the endless
And sometimes my heart gets so full I can barely breath
For all the love that I get without hardly trying

I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
I've got a love that's bigger than you
I've got a love that's bigger than anything you'll ever do
I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
I've got a love that's bigger than this
I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
Yeah, I've got a love that's bigger than darkness
Track Name: Last to Know
Go slow you only hurt yourself.
Run fast, you'll hurt someone else.
Don't show the world your problems,
'Til you know how to solve 'em.

I'm the last to know
I'm the last to know
I'm the last to know
I'm the last to know

Lean hard on a friend, you'll break his back.
Not hard enough, he'll find someone else.
Don't lose your grip, don't let it fall.
Lean hard on the sound, and see what holds.

I'm the last to know
I'm the last to know
I'm the last to know
I'm the last to know
