Track Name: Algar Rhythms
My bus never came
I'm just left out in the rain
I'd walk just the same
But I'd rather complain
Of my mind waning
I am still waiting
For you
Or a sense of what to do
Enough to make the blues
Start fading

I know it's not okay
That boredom grows to extend the days
Get up and go, gone away
Baby I know it's okay

Bad day, long year
On my way while sitting here
I took a seat that I though wasn't taken
I shook a hand that I thought was for shaking
Track Name: There from Here
Like a rolling stone
Here I have been thrown
And I'ma make it home
Set my sights on anywhere
'Cause you can't get there from here

Give way young one
Old me brake for no one
We leave our tracks in solid ground
Ignoring ways to turn around

I shouldn't stay, I should run
I don't know where I'm pointing my guns
I'll miss my mark, lose the load
And never put a dent in the road
I cross every bridge that I burn
I get fucking nowhere
Don't give my location concern
You can't get there from here

Goodbye, still life
My old eyes have to suffice
To lead me 'round another bend
Construct a post card at the end

I shouldn't stay, I should run
I heard you say you were done
You'll send me off on my own
Then beckon me to come back home
You're just chasing dragons and dirt
While I'm going nowhere
I'll stare at the sun 'til it hurts
And lead you back there from here

I just let a little girl down
I found my way out of town
The road is my only friend
I think this might be the end
