Track Name: Backlash
Backlash

Well we made it all right but it ain’t hard to feel the backlash
Runnin for a mile feelin profound change in my blood beneath the backlash
You can’t criticize love
If you ain’t had it

You’re makin it harder to get through
Makin it hard to stay true
Makin it young while you’re shockproof

In the soft strips of light on your cigarette I feel the backlash
Flashes in your cellophone eyes, on the prize called the backlash
With the sand clinging
To your lips like that…

You’re makin it harder to get through
Makin it hard to stay true
Makin it young while you’re shockproof

You’re makin it harder to get through
Makin it hard to stay true
Makin it young while you’re shockproof
Boundless and tired and loose
You’re makin it harder to get through
Makin it hard to stay true
Makin it young while you’re shockproof
Track Name: Magnolia
Magnolia

Dolly rolled the stone, babe
Rolled it down to Decatur park
Lived the light of ages
Picked the wild magnolia buds
Brought em down to Two-Bits
Spread em out all over the bar

A manifesto to being shockproof
When memories are called upon
And the decades of dark deals
Rise lucid in her bare arms
Well I used to run around
With her but now she’s gone

When I’m out walking in my white hat worn once in a lifetime branches in the road losing my control gettin stoned with you When I’m out holding hands urging myself to be a drifter tryin to feel it all waitin on your call there’s nothin else to do not gone just less real No Witness

Dolly in the hospital
Havin revelations in the waiting rooms
She’s conducting some experiments
Dreamin of sex and a wooden flute
Well i used to run around
With her but now she’s gone loose
Track Name: Behind My Eyes
Behind My Eyes

It was so long that I was standing by your side
That is a loyalty no one can deny
There was an emptiness behind your eyes
That is something you could never disguise

Since the years that you went your way
In the heartland you found a peaceful place
The pain that hides and those who hate
That is something that no one can explain

And I’m falling away from you

The loneliness that you put inside your head
That is something I can never forget
I made you suffer because you made me mad
I’m ok that you’re never coming back

And I’m falling away from you
What was more we could d
Track Name: Assisted Living (Real Love)
Assisted Living (Real Love)

Honey, I wanna think about you
Don’t wanna think about dyin young
Don’t wanna know where my friends are tonight
I wanna dream about you
And all your old ways
And all your new interests
And how much you can drink
I wanna think about you

Never gonna give it up
Never gonna wear it in
No you really take me
You can really take it

Honey, I wanna think about you
Don’t wanna think about my God
Or if I’m fallin apart
Or if I’m sick at heart
And I wanna go down
Down to the old folks home
Play ‘em some Jackson Browne songs
And talk to em all sweet and all
I wanna do it with you
I wanna eat a big breakfast there
Smoke a cigarette in the bathroom

Never gonna give it up
Never gonna wear it in
No you really take me
You can really take it
