Track Name: High
We were pushing that car through your neighborhood
only had an FM in that thing.
We would just drive around and smoke cigarettes
hoping we'd stumble onto something.
Years later you told me about a show
in western Mass when you saw Helmet play,
stealing sodas with our favorite maniac
acting crazy then running away.

You were always on my side
even if we didn't see eye to eye
and it still hits me every time
I hear that song when I'm getting high.

I guess in those years I knew tenderness
though mostly through cause and effect.
Everything I know I learned from you
I didn't know just what I should expect.

You were always on my side
even if we didn't see eye to eye
and it still hits me every time
I hear that song when I'm getting high.

I met someone after that golden age
and I was all red eyes and broken heart.
In the snow you kissed me with authority,
you were beautiful right from the start.

And I'll be here when you are feeling overwhelmed,
when you're tired and you just want to sleep,
when you feel like all that you can do is cry,
well don't you know you can always count on me.
Track Name: Silver Nar
Haven't seen the silver nar
never rode in no fancy car
I was young, but not too young:
knees still skinned and bees still stung

Oh I knew what I was made of.

Hold me close but not too close
give me just a little dose.

Oh I knew what I was made of.

Was that me so long ago?
Lungs so green but now I know:
Play the blues or sing the blues,
all those songs are your life too.
