Track Name: Paradise Ranch
I woke up this morning and called out your name
But I knew you'd been gone for weeks
Won't someone carry this poor body home

Paradise Ranch ain't the same without you
Paradise Ranch ain't the same

Lonely desert burns to the depths of my soul
My skin is cracked, naked and dry
The rising wind blows through my memory and pain

The sun-soaked highway crosses my front door
The streets are all empty in town
I promise when I leave here I never will return
Track Name: Always and Never
Let me in on your little secrets
Fill me in on all the sordid details
You’ve got the good stuff, lay your trip on me
But just for a moment, then it’s my turn to tell

I heard the word never is something that we shouldn’t say
I wouldn’t begin to presume that it’s always this way
As much as we try to conceal the cracks in our cast-iron souls
All the dirt clods keep making more holes

And so here’s more food for us now for the thinking
I think and therefore I must consume
And what of the resources that we’ll been drinking
There’s not enough booze in the whole world to shut out the gloom

I heard the word never is something that we shouldn’t say
I wouldn’t begin to presume that it’s always this way
As much as we try to conceal the cracks in our cast-iron souls
All these dirt clods keep making more holes

The raven did say nevermore, according to Poe
That was just some bird-brained joke, cause here we go
Just when we thought we saw daylight
The rain turned to snow
But the son of all seasons will free us despite what we think we know
