To the trees along the highway Do you long for peace and quiet? Are you strong enough to keep on standing by? Would you halt the blurry features of a billion passing travelers? Fall across a solid yellow line Here's to the trees along the highway To the trees beneath the street lamps I'd appreciate some feedback Do you feel like you can never realign? While you're ever reaching skyward, are your branches growing tired? Fall across a silent power line Here's to the trees beneath the street lamps

Why's this word here? I don't know But I don't need your worn out paper I can get a witness on the world wide I mean it World wide web Where's this word from? I don't know But I don't need your worn out paper I can get a witness on the world wide I mean it World wide web Can I get a witness on the world wide web? I mean it World wide What's this word mean? I don't know But I don't need your worn out paper I can get a witness on the world wide I mean it World wide web Can I get a witness on the world wide web? I mean it World wide

Layers 04:16
In the north woods there's a lumberjack In a lumber camp with a sharpened ax And when the weather turns With a union suit and prayer He works through the winter Adding layer after layer Shantyman, shantyman Shiver no more Add another long john to your core Shantyman, shantyman Sweating inside Peel another long john from your hide In the north woods there's a lumberjack In a lumber camp with a sharpened ax And when the river thaws With a union suit and prayer He heats a tub of water And removes the final layer

Sawyerwood 02:14
I woke up with a pounding head Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Downside up in a water bed Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Message in a bottle bobbing on a wave Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Will it be delivered or a watery grave Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Down in the wildwood leaning on a stick Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Finger on the trigger and an eye on a pig Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Pulled the trigger and the gun said "bam!" Born in a shipwreck painted on a log All natural organic honey baked ham Born in a shipwreck painted on a log The Talking Blues ain't blues per se Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Talkin' and rappin' till you're blue in the face Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Woodrow Wilson is a hip-hop pioneer Born in a shipwreck painted on a log Talkin' and rappin' till the blues disappear Born in a shipwreck painted on a log

Straw Union 01:31
Unions weren't around So the straw boss told us lies They burned us to the ground And then we organized We got our union Union has arrived Now the union's here And everything is fair The straw boss walks in fear The unions have a care We have our union Union's everywhere Straw boss has moved on Now the company is spent The union's going strong We've got retirement We need our union Union pays the rent Union took a seat And I guess we'll never learn Unless we can compete The market won't return We lost our union Union's on the curb

Finished 03:17
It's always "I'll do that when I finish this" It's always "I'll do that when I finish this" "When I finish this I will do that one then" Then another "this" comes and I still don't know when Lets go to a show when we finish our chores Lets go to a show when we finish our chores When we finish our chores we will go see a show Then it's "Now I'm too tired and I'd rather stay home" It's always . . . I'll eat one more cookie then go for a run I'll eat one more cookie then go for a run I will go for run when I finish this snack Then it's "Still on the couch and I think I've lost track" It's always . . . I could pay this bill or else pay down the debt I could pay this bill or else pay down the debt Should I pay down this debt or pay that bill instead? 'Cause it's "unplanned expense" and we're back in the red It's always . . . It's always . . .
