Track Name: Break You Down
WITH MY BLADE I WILL CUT
AGAINST THE GRAIN THAT YOU RUN

YOU'LL SEE
HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE

TO BREAK YOU DOWN

NOW BE CAREFUL WHO YOU TRUST
SOME ALLEGIANCES MAY RUST

YOU'LL SEE
WHATEVER IT MAY TAKE
FOR YOU I'LL BE THERE

TO BREAK YOU DOWN

I'LL BREAK YOU DOWN...

WITHIN THE FRAY YOU MUST LISTEN
JUST BE AWAKE AND I WILL COME

YOU'LL SEE
HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE

WHATEVER IT MAY TAKE
FOR YOU I'LL BE THERE

THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE
YOUR GOOD FORTUNE'S WAITING

TO BREAK YOU DOWN...
Track Name: Easy Street
IF YOU'RE MISSING IT
HOPE JUST BLEW AWAY
GO OUT AND GET HER FOR ME

NO USE FIDGETING
TRYING TO HOLD BACK THIS DAY
STAND UP AND SHOW YOUR FACE

WAY BACK
DOWN ON EASY STREET
WE DIDN'T HAVE TO TRY

THE WAY BACK
IS PAVED IN MISERY
IT'S NO USE WAITING AROUND
IF DIGGING IN MY ROAD
IT'S TOO LATE
STEP OUT FROM MY WAY

WHAT IS PERMANENT
ALL INVOLVES PAIN
NOW YOU'RE LISTENING
WAY BACK
DOWN ON EASY STREET
WE DIDN'T HAVE TO TRY

LAY BACK
ENJOY THE SCENERY
THE WAR IS RAGING

RAGING...

WAY BACK
DOWN ON EASY STREET
WE DIDN'T HAVE TO TRY

THE WAY BACK
IS PAVED IN MISERY
IT'S NO USE WAITING AROUND

WAY BACK
DOWN ON EASY STREET
WE DIDN'T HAVE TO TRY

LAY BACK
ENJOY THE SCENERY
THE WAR IS RAGING...

RAGING...
RAGING...

ON SWEET EASY STREET...
SWEET EASY STREET...
Track Name: Oh, By The Way...
Hey you
What you been up to?
Some conversations don't change

It's true
Been miles since I've seen you
In you're school bus yellow brocade

Hey you
Where you going to?
Some people never change

It's true
The times I had with you
Left me with all the blame

All the blame...

Oh by the way it's just a little strange that you call
And I guess it's a little late to hear the phone
You tell me that you're back in fine form
But I know you're still the same

Look at you
Your life is all brand new
You can't hide your pain

The best view
A fancy zip code too
It's all the same

All the same...

Oh by the way it's just a little strange that you call
And I guess it's a little late to hear the phone
You tell me that you're back in fine form
But I know you're still the same

You're still the same....
Track Name: Low Soft Refrain (For Kate McGarrigle)
With a lie the past is undone
I can't find a truth in all that I've learned
As fever finds it's way into your blood
The circle it turns.

Cities rise from pastures we turned
The streets are wide, but the path lays obscured
As the fallen braids of the life we cut
Line the way in our hour of rush
The circle it burns.

All I see is killing me
All the days recede
All the walls come crumbling down at a wicked speed
The low soft refrain draws near
The low soft refrain draws near

The low soft refrain....
