Track Name: You Who
"You Who"
Luke Dick
9/10/12

Who's that knocking on my back door?
Is it you? Is it you? (Repeat)

Yoo-hoo, is there anybody in there?
Yoo-hoo, is there anybody home?
Yoo-hoo, is there anybody in there?
You-hoo, please take your pants and go home.

Who's that passing out on my floor?
Is that you? Is that you?

Yoo-hoo, is there anybody in there?
Yoo-hoo, is there anybody home?
Yoo-hoo, is there anybody in there?
Yoo-hoo, you and your three-legged dog.

Who woke me up at 4 in the morning?
Was it you? Was that you? (Repeat)

Yoo-hoo, is there anybody in there?
Yoo-hoo, is there anybody home?
Yoo-hoo, is there anybody in there?
You, who gave you the number to my phone?
Track Name: Everywhere
"Everywhere"
Luke Dick / Jonathan Byrd

In the blood, in the bread, inside your head
I was there on the morn, the day you were born
In your Oklahoma brogue, in the way your cowlick grows, I will be there everywhere you go

In the tales that you tell, I can see myself
In the old photographs, in the way you laugh
Now that you have grown, you're still my flesh and bone
And I will be there everywhere you go

When you ain't got a single penny, don't know what you're gonna do
I've been there too, and I made it through
When you're lonely in the city, staring at the moon
I'll be there, too, I'll be there, too

When I'm old, when I'm gone, and you carry on
In the air, in a song, in the way you walk
The wrinkles in your nose, in the way you curl your toes,
I will be there everywhere you go

When you ain't got a single penny, don't know what you're gonna do
I've been there too, and I made it through
When you're lonely in the city, staring at the moon
I'll be there, too, I'll be there, too

When you ain't got a single penny, don't know what you're gonna do
I've been there too, and I made it through
When you're lonely in the city, staring at the moon
I'll be there, too, I'll be there, too

Track Name: Walking in the Night
"Walking in the Night"
Luke Dick
10/15/12

I watched a single promise loosen through the years,
I wonder who it was who made it,
And just who is standing here

The porch swing and the gable,
The fence line and the deed,
What once was then a perfect world, now, don't mean anything

I try to find a rock,
To which I'll cling,
But then the rain'll wash it away until it's sand beneath the sea

So, I make the moon my only guide,
Until the stars go out like always,
And I go walking in the night

I can wave my flag in anger,
Until it's soaked in pride and blood,
But you know that every flag unravels, if it's ever seen the sun

I try to find a rock,
To which I'll cling,
But then the rain'll wash it away until it's sand beneath the sea

So, I make the moon my only guide,
Until the stars go out like always,
And I go walking in the night

I'm just walking,
I just keep walking,
I'm just walking in the night
Track Name: Heaven Knows
Heaven Knows
Luke Dick
10/31/10

I see the water, I see the drain, drain, drain
Reflections going underground, and coming round again
So many circles, where do they end, what, why, and how?

So, I rode the rivers, I search (sailed?) the sea, sea, se-as
Jumped off all the waterfalls, rowed gently down the stream
In all the mirrors and salty dreams
and almost drowned:

When I die, then what will I see
When I lose my body, what will I be
Will the earth take back my last heartbeat and my bones

Will I lay there, stuck in the ground
Will a worm then take me into her mouth (Wanda)
Will I turn into a perfect seed for a rose…oh, heaven knows.

I found the flowers in the spring, spring, spring
Tried all the things that poets dream and singers seem to sing
Lived through the summer, feeling free, but leaves turn brown

When I die, then what will I see
When I lose my body, what will I be
Will the earth take back my last heartbeat and my bones

Will I lay there, stuck in the ground
Will a worm then take me into her mouth (Wanda)
Will I turn into a perfect seed for a rose…oh, heaven knows.

I made a baby, taught her to breathe, breathe, breathe
Read her every book I had, jumped on trampolines
Until we laid there, wondering into the clouds

She sang:

When I die, then what will I see
When I'm gone, daddy, what will I be
Will the earth take back my last heartbeat and my bones

Will I lay without a sound
Will a worm then take me into her mouth (Wanda)
Will a bird then pluck us out of the ground
Take me for a ride in the clouds
Drop me where the winding river flows…oh, heaven knows.
Track Name: Whatever
"Whatever" 
Allensworth / Dick
8/17/12

Whatever can get you out of bed
Whatever can help you go to sleep
Whatever, you can use to clear your head
Whatever will make your heart beat
Pitter patter
Whatever's all that matters

Whatever will make you wanna act
Whatever will put you in the scene
Whatever's gonna help you to relax
"Whatever," the song you're gonna  sing
La-di-da-da
Whatever's all that matters

Just,  
Feel the real emotion of the ocean
Hear so clear the rhythm of the tide
See the be the whistle of the robin
All is all alright

Whatever, the meaning of your life
Whatever, the reason that you're here
Whatever's gonna happen when you die
Whatever, the thing you're gonna fear
It's just the rattle, reminding you whatever's all that matters

So, 
Feel the real emotion of the ocean
Hear so clear the rhythm of the tide
See the be the whistle of the robin
All is all alright
    

It's not what you thought that it would be
When you drew all the places on the map
Even though you think you have the key
Whatever is all you've ever had

So, there you have it        
Whatever's all that matters
So, now you have it
Whatever's all that ever matters
Track Name: The Last Leaf
"The Last Leaf"
Jonathan Byrd / Luke Dick
12/21/12

Bobwhite sings
Seeds have wings
Flying from the maple trees

Axe to wood
It's understood
The end beginning all that's good

Winter's coming,
Feels like something
Slowly baring all
Build the nests
Await what's next
When February thaws
Just waiting...for the last leaf to fall.

It's time to go.
How can I go?
as long as one warm coal still glows.

Winter's coming,
Feels like something
Slowly baring all
Build the nests
Await what's next
When February thaws
Just waiting...for the last leaf to fall.
Track Name: Esqueleta's Bones
“Esqueleta’s Bones”
2/23/09
Luke Dick

She don’t cook, She don’t clean,
All she ever wants to do is lay with me
Always waits, a sober face,
Yawns until I give her what she needs

Then she smiles,
Because she knows
I’m just a slave to Esqueleta’s lazy bones

She ignores, she demands,
The purrs so she can be beneath my hands
She’ll turn and bite, drain me dry,
Then ask me if I’m proud to be her man

I just smile,
Kiss her nose,
A happy slave to Esqueleta’s crazy bones

She knows that I’ve had many senoritas
She even acts like she don’t care at all
So the past will never come between us,
She sneaks and shreds their pictures with her claws

I just laugh, ‘cause she’s in my lap,
Latches on with everything she’s got
She plays mean, but I believe,
She just pretends so that I won’t think she’s soft

She’ll scratch me deep,
Blood will flow,
Diggin’ in ‘til Esqueleta’s in my bones
Oh, I’m so glad that Esqueleta’s in my bones
Track Name: No Hurry
"No Hurry"
Luke Dick / Jonathan Byrd
10/1/12

I've got nowhere to be,
Yes, you can go with me, 
No hurry, no worry

I've only got one pace, 
I'm fighting for last place,
No hurry, no worry

If you move to fast, then you might pass a corner worth exploring,
No hurry, no worry

When you're fighting every line,
Just to save a minute's time,
No hurry, no worry

No matter what you're after, 
Still the world just keeps on turning,
no hurry, no worry

Life is short and you can't be sure of much,
I'm just getting good at learning what it means to love,
No, there ain't no destination, only places in the journey,
No hurry, no worry,
No don't you hurry.
Track Name: I Want Everything
"I Want Everything"
Luke Dick / Theresa Coulter


I wanna wallow in the gutters, I wanna galavant with kings,
I want everything

I wanny cry beneath the covers, I wanna fight till the death toll rings,
I want everything


I don't ever wanna die, I wanna hear the angels sing,
I wanna give every dime I own, and I want all the gold for me
I want everything, I want everything, I want everything

I want you and you alone, I want every pretty little thing I see,
I want everything

I don't ever wanna die, I wanna hear the angels sing,
I wanna give every dime I own, I want all the gold for me
I want everything, I want everything, I want everything

I wanna speak in holy tongues, I wanna cuss and run the streets ,
I wanna doubt what I can't hold, then tell God that I believe...

I wanna forgive and forget, and poison all my enemies
Beat the savage drums of war all night, and in the morning pray for peace,
Baby, I don't ever wanna die, And I wanna hear the angels sing,
I wanna give every dime I own, I want all the gold for me
I want everything, hmm I want everything
Track Name: Connected
"Connected"
Luke Dick
9/16/12

While I turn the pages of my book
Across the world the author cooks
She pours the wine, while I break the bread,
Because we're connected

Roots beneath my family tree,
Deeper than the eyes can see,
All tangled up like spiderwebs,
Connected

Drums in the darkness
You can feel the pulse
First there was star dust
And now there's us
All I ever was,
All I'll ever be,
Connected

Can you still hear that cosmic spark,
Cannons blasting in the dark,
When we blew out like grains of sand,
Connected

Drums in the darkness
You can feel the pulse
First there was star dust
And now there's us
All I ever was,
All I'll ever be,
Connected

So, pour the wine, I'll break the bread,
We're all tangled up like spiderwebs,
And here we are, still grains of sand,
Connected.
