Track Name: 90 Highway Miles
________________________________
90 Highway Miles
- by David Elias

90 highway miles
I'll get there when I can
Sunset shades my tired eyes
I will be down the road again
Sorrow sways with the blue walled tires
Will they make it round that bend
90 highway miles
90 highway miles
90 highway miles
I'll get there if I can

19 days of freedom
Catch 'em when I can
Border states they invite me in
I will be down the road again
Swinging low we all agreed
To make it round that bend
19 days of freedom
19 days of freedom
19 days of freedom
Catch 'em if I can

9 more nights of northern skies
Will I sleep soon by and by
The wind is down and the moon is high
Ain't no time to wonder why
Shine a light now don't be shy
Will we make it there somehow
9 more nights of northern skies
9 more nights of northern skies
9 more nights of northern skies
Well I'll sleep soon by and by

90, 19, 9 and 1 well count me in my dear
I'm standing here in an empty field
The hay it's all but cleared
Give me time to speak my mind
Before I lay me down
I'm on that road just one more time
I'm down that road just one last time
I'm on the road one time
I'm on the road again

I will be on the road one more time
I'm down that road just one last time
On the road one time
I'm on the road again

an empty seat (for tom petty, 1950-2017)
- by david elias

get in the back seat
we'll make room
headin up the street
a wasted afternoon
you wore your hair neat
but you never groomed
grew up in the south’s heat
you always kept your cool
now there's a back seat
in this house of lights
now there's an empty seat
in this house of lights
now there's an empty seat
in this house of lights

Track Name: Birthday Song, Take 4
birthday song, take 4
- by david elias

It never really was too far
Not that you could get there in an automobile
Then again it wasn't near
Not to mention disappearing clear anyhow
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone

You feel a little worse for wear
And a little longer in the tooth, my friend
You keep a watch with a soldier's stare
Ends the song that lingered in your youth too long
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone

Cavalier in the cavalcade
These events will creep up on to pass you by
Happiest of happy days
The woodman watches from his roadside
And sighs

Track Name: Choose To Lose
choose to lose
- david elias

the times roll on these roads unfold along
still being put right to the test
push me away i'm still inclined to say
i'd rather take this day of rest

fortune of clouds i'm here to think out loud
no matter who is in the crowd
chances are good i don't get out without
breaking some rules 'bout "not allowed"

self-funded dreams published in magazines
that never see the light of day
dreams live by night with no regard to light
it's only on their own they make their way

no one denies what comes right from the skies
we look to heaven right as rain
nor can deny what comes to by and by
no need to guess nor to explain

like solitaire appearing here and there
i can conclude without refrain
through some complain they've still yet to regain
i'd rather choose to lose again

Track Name: Nail In The Sea
nail in the sea
- by david elias

there's a nail in the sea
and a shell on the door
and nothing in me
even less than before
if you try to be free
you may find yourself poor
with a nail in the sea
and a shell on the door

there's a tide full of rage
and a boat lost at sea
an unwritten page
left for no one to see
will the clove scented sage
erase all memory
of the tide full of rage
and the boat lost at sea

there's a morning that's clear
the waves face the sky
everything's near
no one's saying goodbye
if you listen you'll hear
all those tears in my eyes
on the morning that's clear
and the waves face the sky

there's a nail in the sea
and a shell on the door
and nothing in me
even less than before
if you try to be free
you may find yourself poor
with a nail in the sea
and a shell on the door

Track Name: Nothing
Nothing
- by David Elias

Measuring the body
Measuring the water
Simplifying everything
Things you never thought of
Leaving all the reasons
Leaving minds behind

Maple leaves fall through me
Fragile paper chimes
Gently by the water
Kneeling at the stream
The source of all that holds me
The dream within a dream

Stepping through the pages
Stepping back through time
The silk the stars the hills the farms
Lay me in your arms
Pull me to the bottom
Pull me through your door

Silence ticks by
Nothing moves
Nothing stirs
Nothing sleeps
Nothing

Track Name: Mainland
Mainland
- by David Elias

I looked never faltered
Wondered how long
Halo, I know
I looked and it was gone

Maybe someday
I'm found among the bodies
Able to say no
Stable without belief

Dissident repent
Have faith in my faith
Don't look don't cry
Be well
Bye bye

Scholars in red collars
Dollars float by an island
Red tide won't subside
Jump off the Mainland

Track Name: Didn't Want To Know
Didn't Want To Know
- by David Elias

I was running too hard and I was running too late
Couldn't get past that first front gate
All advice I'd saved to date
Went out of my head like some misplaced freight
I'd bet all my money on an easy come
Didn't stop to think where she'd come from
I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young
Didn't want to think
Didn't want to know

I didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young
Didn't want to think
Didn't want to know
I didn't want to know

Sometimes I think that the angel sings
When we get knocked out like we're in some ring
For the profiteers of just one last fling
It's emotional but it don't mean a thing
I bet all my money on an easy come
Didn't stop to think where she'd come from
I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young
Didn't want to think
I didn't want to know

Didn't want to know
I didn't want to know
I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young
Didn't want to think
I didn't want to know

Didn't want to know
Did not want to know
For all of my smarts at just one clean start
I didn't ask myself the most important part
Did not want to know
I did not want to know
I did not want to know

Track Name: Higher Ground
Higher Ground
- by David Elias

I feel the rain come in
The smell before the wind
Leaves fold down those pale green crowns
Yima Yima Yai

I watch the river rise
Both forks are snake eyes wise
Set me down on higher ground
Yima Yima Yai

I'm back where I came from
The trees the old deer run
Worn out trails
Tuck tired tails
Yima Yima Yai

I'll meet you up the hill
Your hair it's falling still
Lay me down on higher ground
Yima Yima Yai

Those nights were cold and clear
And every star hung near
Reaching round for higher ground
Yima Yima Yai

Track Name: You Roll Right On
You Roll Right On
- by David Elias

Coastal waves of inspiration all you have is meditation
Trees of fire burn the choir singing for their salvation
Hints of glamour girls enamored with their own afflictions
Situations complications never mind the contradictions

You roll right on
You roll right on
You roll right on
As you roll right by
You roll right on

Memories of disenchantment paying back the conversation
All you owe is paid in full the rest is just hallucination
Early water Sunday's daughter ran away no hesitation
Where she goes nobody knows, hell to pay in moderation

You roll right on
You roll right on
You roll right on
As you roll right by
You roll right on

Acupuncture found the juncture in between the constellations
Heaven knows those bodies glow when forced away from contemplation
Witness this with mortal bliss the Gods can't touch our incarnation
And after all is said and done
You wind up back where you begun
Everlasting peace will mark the end of our emancipation

You roll right on
You roll right on
You roll right on
As you roll right by you roll
As you roll right by you roll
As you roll right by you roll
Right on
