Track Name: Mule Songs
At your old church on a Sunday
Sitting quiet and alone
Across the room a young believer
Who'd made those walls his second home
A glance in your direction
Gave you a place in his mind
The start of a hopeless quest to hold your hand
Never-ending in the hopes that he might

His first year at your old school
Brought him a pleasant surprise
A seat next to you
How you controlled his mind
And even though his heart sank
The day the teacher moved you across the room
He walked with you down the hall everyday
“I don't want to be bothersome, I just like talking to you”

Now it's a couple years later
You came back into the scene
Still a smart, unique girl
Still as pretty as can be
After a while he eventually
Told you what was on his heart
Although the corresponding expressions
Were pretty clear from the start

Then came the day
You two spent the evening together
A nervous yet relentless kid
With his arm across your shoulder
But this occasion was requested
By an unrepentant fool
As stubborn a college sophomore
As he was in high school
Track Name: In Loom of a Hurricane
Throw my guitar across the room
Discouragement rears its ugly head again
My hands just can't seem to flow
But inside flows a treacherous stream

Like a child, prone to anger
I shake my head
I shake it at every trivial injustice I believe
Forgetting the generous hand given to me
Track Name: Practical Son
Where were you when we were running
Through the trees?
Knots untied and feet free
As we ran underneath the redwood trees

Where have you gone?
What are those weights locked to your ankles?

We drank from the rushing brook
And the supply seemed endless
We reflected on what it meant
To be alive and to live

Where have you gone?
What are those weights locked to your ankles?
Track Name: Enduring World
The sound of the rain falling from the trees
The moon glows brightly through the clouds
Distant thunder echoes through the air
Soundless lightning shines in the sky

Amidst the wrong that never sleeps
Earth still shows its majesty
Even though anger flows and pain grows
Earth still graces us with its beauty

The love between father and daughter
The moment you see the good in someone
Though so much drags us down
There is good and happiness to be found

Amidst the wrong that never sleeps
Earth still shows its majesty
Even though anger flows and pain grows
Earth still graces us with its beauty
