Track Name: All The World Is Groaning
Every one’s wounded
No one escapes
Not the rich or the poor,
Each and every heart aches
Loved ones dying,
Friends passing on,
More doors closing
Because youth is gone

You and me and all the world is mourning
In our misery, we cry for our restoring,
Made whole and free,
Spectacularly
Dressed up in tails and the gowns of Easter morning
For now, you and me
And all the world is constantly
Groaning

Everyone suffers
In different ways
Everyone’s rushing
To the end of their days
Wealth can’t stop it
Fame is fleeting
Everyone’s broken
We can’t stop the bleeding

You and me and all the world is mourning
In our misery, we cry for our restoring,
Made whole and free
Spectacularly
Dressed up in tails and the gowns of Easter morning
For now, you and me
And all the world is constantly
Groaning

Everyone needs love
We don’t always get
We’ve all made choices
That we may regret
Money can’t save us,
And power corrupts
We’re here for a moment,
Then we return to dust

You and me and all the the world is mourning
In our misery, we cry for our restoring
Made whole and free,
Spectacularly
Dressed in tails and the gowns of Easter morning
Here’s a mystery:
Our delivery
From our bodies decay to the day
Of its new adorning
For now, you and me
And all the world is constantly
Groaning
Groaning
Groaning
Groaning..
Track Name: Guilty- 2019
Well I'm in a mess
What can I do?
yeah, I've second-guessed
so have you
but I've been all wrong baby
Ad nauseum baby
I'm gonna break the circuit,
put aside all my disguises
Don't run away screaming out
or worse, start laughing now that I'm

(chorus)
Guilty (take me back)
Guilty (take me back)
Guilty (take me back)
Take me back now
that's all I ask now
Take me back 'cause I'm guilty

Couldn't face the wrong
in myself
So I condemned
somebody else
You were in reach baby
I've been impeached baby
I'll plead for your acceptance
so I can walk the straight line again
What a big grim process this is
but I can't hide any longer cause I'm

(chorus)

Absolve me from the wrong I've done
Lay your hands on me and I will overcome
heal me now
and seal me now
in your gracious love
your fathomless love
'cause I'm

Guilty, Guilty

Well I'm on my knees again
and I got my heart in hand
Girl I pray you understand
I'm a tired and broken man

Guilty, Guilty

I'll make it simple as I can
to say exactly what I am
I'm guilty baby, I'm guilty baby,
I'm guilty, guilty, guilty

Guilty, Guilty

I'm not the man I used to be
and it's so easy girl to see
I caused you misery
so let the judgment fall on me
and I'll tell you honestly
for the record here's my plea
I'm guilty baby, I'm guilty baby
I'm guilty, guilty, guilty...
Track Name: Devil's Elbow- 2019
There by the sumac and the thicket of the evergreens,
Carved our names next to the others in Pacific City beams
We passed the faded billboards and all those tumbleweed dreams,
Now it’s on to Devil’s Elbow

Had a sizzlin’ t-bone, vegetable, and fries,
And a roquefort side-salad for a buck twenty-five
We can fill our bellies, watch the river rise
Down at Devil’s Elbow

And Dolly the waitress says “When we quit,
We’ll put a lock on the door and that’ll be it,
No more Chicken-In-A-Basket, Chili Supper benefits,
Gettin’ out of Devil’s Elbow”

The lumberjacks gave it its infamous name,
The Big Piney River has the bend to blame;
The log-jams bein’ its claim to fame,
Trapped in Devil’s Elbow

And it’s a threat to the old folks,
And it’s death to youth,
Jammed up so badly, you can’t get loose
And the only escape is in knowing this truth:
You’re lost in Devil’s Elbow

God knows I love you baby,
And I loved you well
But the water kept risin’,
And the timber fell
You left to find heaven,
I got squeezed in hell,
All alone in Devil’s Elbow

There by the sumac and the thicket of the evergreens,
Carved our names next to the others in Pacific City beams
We passed the faded billboards and all the tumbleweed dreams,
Now it’s on to Devil’s Elbow
Track Name: Colored By- 2019
You might not recognize, the truth gets colored by
Wrong things, bad things do disguise
Afraid you might despise the real thing
The real thing whoa-oh (3X)
Down in Southern Cal we don't wear shoes
We lay it way back
When someone with charisma tells me "Don't wear shoes"
I tell them "Go back, where did you get that?"
You might not recognize, the truth gets colored by
Wrong things, bad things do disguise
Afraid you might despise the real thing
The real thing whoa-oh (3X)
Down in Africa they beat the drum
They like the big beat
White man through the P.A. says "Don't beat that drum"
They tell him "Go back, where does it say that?"
The real thing whoa-oh (3X)
Down at the little church, they all wear hats
They feel they're doing right
Over at the big church, they hate those hats
It get's them uptight, now is that right?
You might not recognize, the truth gets colored by
Wrong things, bad things do disguise
Afraid you might despise the real thing
The real thing whoa-oh (6X)
Track Name: And They Turned Water Into Wine
Dark stars are falling from her eyes
Now dust, they’re scattered ‘cross the table
Where by his open trembling hands
There lies a hammer and a nail
He say’s “Do what you’ve got to do”
Her hand is moving near the handle
She’s writing something in the dust
Too dark to see,
He lights a candle

They went off script, threw out their lines
They saw through eyes that once were blind,
Then drank a cup of the divine,
And they turned water into wine

She watched him crawl along the ground,
His wounded skin as dark as ebony
She found the devil’s book clutched in
The bleeding hands of her sworn enemy
He begs “Be merciful, be swift,”
So with steady hands and an aim not faltered,
She carries him ‘cross the desert floor
To The House of Rest and Healing Waters

They went off script, threw out their lines
They saw through eyes that once were blind,
Then drank a cup of the divine
And they turned water into wine
And they turned water into wine
