Track Name: The Spirits
If the bartenders cater to my friends and family
There'll be wine at the seder at the children dance so free
If the moon in the sky doesn't seem quite out of reach
Then my home in the mountains is alive
The only place for me

If the spirits here, then the weight is light
Sleep through the night

Since the clan is getting bigger and they don't want us around
We'll make a break for the border when they drive us out of town
I woke up one morning and the horses gathered round
And the smoke started pouring as my home was burning to the ground

But, if the spirits here, then the weight is light
Sleep through the night

The trees at the bottom of the hill make it hard to see
But my heart tells me somewhere there is still some vacancy
If there was I would run into its arms and pour a drink
A drink to forgive you of your harm
And marvel at the scene

If there spirits here, then the weight is light
Sleep through the night
Track Name: Moonville
She cleaned off the tables
She's writing a poem
No one at the bar is going home

And outside a mouse is getting stoned
Watching all the cars pass, all alone

I'm writing a map, my whiskey's cold
Plotting out a trip to find my ghost
I've been to Ohio, I've been to the moon
I'm going to Moonville Station soon

I wanted my name back so long I could scream
Out there on the train tracks, blowing steam
She whistled through walkers
She whistled through jumpers
She whistled with blood-thirst into me

I've been to Ohio, I've been to the moon
I'm going to leave my body soon
I've been to Ohio, I've been to the moon
I'm going to Moonville Station soon
Track Name: Back to the Hills
I'm flying down the road, back to the hills
Where they said I was born
I'm following the shore, back to the hills
Where they said I was born

My home, my home

You, sitting in your chair, staring at the floor
Wishing you weren't there
Come with me to my home
We'll leave in the night, nobody will know

We're gonna ride on the riverside back to the hills
We're gonna ride on the riverside back to the hills

I'm going to a place, doesn't have a clue
Doesn't leave no trace
Take my hand or stay alone
Cause it's getting late and we've got to go

My home, my home
Track Name: Bunraku
Floating away in a bottle
Track Name: Oh, Chernobyl
Oh, Chernobyl
Fall out clouds and thunder sounds
Close your control room
Promise to be careful now

Oh, Chernobyl

Oh, Chernobyl
Prypiat, your landing spot
Watched the smoke grow
Past the clouds, the scent was awful
Take a handful
From your rooms, don't breathe the fumes
Don't cramp your muscles
Keep 'em moving, keep on moving

Chernobyl

Oh, Chernobyl
Cash machines and gasoline at your disposal
Promise you'll be there for me
Track Name: White Lady
My baby vanished with the sun
Still shines her light in everyone
Is she hiding in New York?
Is she hiding in New York?
How long?

Some days I think she is a ghost
Some days I think I know her most
Is she hiding in New York?
Is she hiding in New York?
How long?
Track Name: Build a Bridge
The summer when we met
We never had a chance
It was an accident
It was not meant to last

Build a bridge over the water for you and I
We'd be fine

And now you're all alone
Lying around in bed
A stream of chemicals
Swirling around your head

Who would guess what was flowing under
Our little town that brought us down
When she left I never forgot her
It's been some time, that's alright

Build a bridge over the water, for my friend, I loved her then
Track Name: Centralia
In the morning I woke up
Poured some chlorine in my cup
and waited for the bus to come and pick me up
Take me back to Centralia

and you were lying there
With ashes in your hair
Spiraling off into the air

Took you back to Centralia
Hooked a diamond to your claw
No one can stop us now, they'll all be talking 'bout
Secrets that will run aground

Your picture on my wall
Was leaking alcohol
Drowning in the chemical
From the colossal heat
That rises from the street
Shining like an oil leak

In the morning when I wake
Empty out my stomach in the lake
No one can stop us now
No one can stop us now
No one can stop us now
No one can stop us now
No one can stop us now
No one can stop us now
