The Rose With a Broken Neck

Lonely I see
Lonely I need
Lonely I feel
Lonely I bleed
Lonely I trust
And lonely I must
Be the rose with the broken neck

The plow on the farm
The train on the track
The tracks on my arm
The train in the wreck

That’s when they all sing this song
About when you are all alone
In your home with the broken neck

Help myself to a drink
Help myself to the sink
The dogs start to moan
And the crows start to beg
At my eyes and down at the ground
Oh and it shows
On the rose with the broken neck

Lonely I see
Lonely I need
Lonely I feel
And lonely I bleed
Lonely I trust
And lonely I must
Be the rose with the broken neck

Season’s Trees

Every girl gets her dreams
Cast into reality
Never seemed to bother me
Only just recently

‘Cause you seem to believe
That we’ll never be free
Always gonna be needing

Can’t we be like the season’s trees
Changeably just not so easily

All in all we’re the same
Jumping through hoops of flames
Sounds fun, what a dangerous game
Pretty picture trapped in frame

But you seem to behave
Like we’ll always be slaves
Never running away

Can’t we be like the season’s trees
Changeably just not too easily

‘Cause you seem to believe
That we’ll never be free
Always gonna be needing

Can’t we be like the season’s trees
Changeably just not so easily
