These songs are special to me in many ways but mostly because they all remind me of travel, long drives, walking around, seeing different places. For many years thoughts about going places have been just as valuable as actually leaving, since I couldn't afford the time or money it took to go. So you could say I've been traveling in my head. Each song has specific parts that remind me of this:
1. (bare voice) 2. And the hands of hobo fishermen, they fish off the city bridges, the city bridges. 3. You can't go home again; each time it's different. 4. Please don't confront me with my failures; I had not forgotten them. 5. (harmony) 6. I'm headed for a land that's far away, beside the crystal fountains. 7. Get up from your old couch, with your heart full of flowers – you've been broken far too long. Pass the guy with the heart so blue, he's got nothing for you to use; it's all bound to get better. Everyone always misses you when you're gone, every time you just pick up and run. Eyes black and blue from the war, you're defeated by your own army. 8. (layers 3:46) 9. (strings 2:04) 10. I'm challenging you in the stormiest sea, each wave is as high as a building. I have a golden sword in my hand; twelve ships are waiting.
