Track Name: Dream Catcher
I don't wanna dream bad dreams,
I just wanna dream about you, girl,
but you give me nightmares,
so what can I do?

The catcher in the room hangs low,
but you pass right through, girl,
I know you do.

My hands are shakin',
I'm so tired, I need a rest, yes,
I know I do.

Just one touch, just one kiss,
I'll dream about you sweetly,
I know I will.

What is wrong with you,
What is wrong with me,
We are stuck like this for eternity.
Track Name: Art Talk
Hey, I'm sorry I'm an artist.
Hey, I'm sorry Ty's an artist.
FOR YOU

Hey, I know that I got it.
Yeah, he knows that he's got it.
But you don't know that you got it, do you?

I put a locket in my pocket,
I put my hand in my pocket,
I put the locket around you.
Track Name: Pine Tree Farm
I wanna go some place where I can be alone,
In my pine tree forrest in the cadillac barn,
I collect the bottles and I shoot 'em down,
I know in this place I can't be found.

So, I go,
to be alone,
to the unknown.

You're my father, you're my man,
You have time to understand.
You're my son, my good friend,
You have time to comprehend.

I've got money, I've got friends,
I have time to disrespect.
You've got money, you've got friends,
You have time to take offense.

We walk along that old creek bed,
Coke bottles and an axe blade in the shed,
A cottonmouth curled up in the sand,
You pulled out your pistol and shot off its head.

Now, I know,
I go where you go,
Or I die alone.
Track Name: Kudzu
I take a walk, I take it in time,
I take it through my mind.
The dogs all bark in wonder,
At the strangers passing by.

The stained glass colors are haunting,
And in a kudzu grave,
I see my own reflection growing older,
from day to day.

We took a walk, we took it in time,
We walked through the vines,
As I pulled back the green curtains,
I could see it in your eyes.

The sun set so low,
Irises of gold,
And I watched as the distance between us,
began to grow.

I think about it day and night,
I think about it all the time.
Track Name: LUV SICK
NOW IT AIN'T EASY
WHEN YOU GET QUEASY
WHEN I TELL YA
THAT I LOVE YOU

AND IT AIN'T FUNNY
NOW IS IT HONEY
WHEN YOU'RE LOOKIN DOWN
AT YOUR SHOES

LUV SICK, SICK OF LUV

I AM FRUMPY
AND A LITTLE LUMPY
THAT DON'T MEAN
I CAN'T LOVE YOU

YOUR SHIP HAS CRASHED
AND I HAVE TO ASK
HOW DO YOU PLAN
TO GET BACK

LUV SICK, SICK OF LUV
