Track Name: Nothing (Mason Jennings)
Make yourself at home, 'cause i'm going out
Across the street to get us some water
'cause this water's brown, and i'm so embarrassed
To have you here but i want you around
Usually i'd sing, or play you my guitar
But i know it won't get very far with you
'cause you like music that makes you move
And mine has a groove, but it's nothing i can prove
Please know what I mean
When i say, nothing
Things that i buy and things that i think
Haven't made this a better place to be
Drugs that i try and drinks that i drink
Haven't made this a better place to be
It's still just a room with the drums in the middle
A couch along the wall that works as my bed
I still have a phone that rings all day
I still have things i wish i would of said
Please know what i mean
When i say, nothing
When i say
This whole thing's been hard on me
It breaks my heart, do you know what that means
My new place seems strange to me
It breaks my heart, do you know what that means
It means nothing
Track Name: Happy Xmas (John Lennon)
So this is Christmas and what have you done,
Another year over, a new one just begun.
And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun,
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fears.

And so this is Christmas for weak and for strong,
The rich and the poor ones, the road is so long.
And so happy Christmas for black and for white
For the yellow and red ones let's stop all the fights.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fear.

And so this is Christmas and what have we done
Another year over, a new one just begun.
And so happy Christmas we hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fear.

War is over if you want it, war is over now.
Track Name: Iron Post - 1904 (Tallest Man On Earth)
Well some they say it's not even funny
And there you stand not even trying
They say it is in line with the ageing
Sometimes noise is just your mind

But the lesson is vague in the lightning
Shows a dear with her mind on the moor
And now something with the sun is just different
Since they shook the earth in 1904

And as I lower down I hear it's a message
And it's 1902, just telling people to get out
And if there was just a way I could tell them
It's been long but you were right

And the singing is slow and so quiet
Like the sound when you sweep off the floor
And now something with the dirt is just different
Since they shook the earth in 1904

And when the night is young but the bridge is up
Something passing by I was sure
And the only one you can tell it to
Well it's the only one that ever knows

And since more robbers made to go through my window
Here is something so strange and something louder than before
And you living with no light or direction
But damn precise and now you know

When the leaving is hard but you go now
And you feel what you drag across the floor
Because something with these trails are just different
Since they shook the earth in 1904

And when the night is young but the bridge is up
Something passing by I was sure
And the only one you will tell it to
Well it's the only one who will ever know

And some will say it's not even healthy
But body is young and mind is sure
That something is alright with your thinking
Cause they shook the earth in 1904
Track Name: Breaking and Entering - Ragged Wood (Fleet Foxes)
Come down from the mountain, you have been gone too long
The spring is upon us, follow my only song
Settle down with me by the fire of my yearning
You should come back home, back on your own now

The world is alive now, in and outside our home
You run through the forest, settle before the sun
Darling, I can barely remember you beside me
You should come back home, back on your own now

And even in the light, when the woman of the woods came by
To give to you the word of the old man
In the morning tide when the sparrow and the seagull fly
And Johnathan and Evelyn get tired

Lie to me if you will at the top of Beringer Hill
Tell me anything you want, any old lie will do
Call me back to you

Back to you
