Track Name: Jackson Looks On
Advance man snickers as the cameras are positioned
Pictures the picture in the morning edition:
Jackson looks on, on the edges of his vision

Well recalls the motion of a ship without a rudder
Sometimes you gotta say one thing, then do another
Jackson looks down on a funny sort of brother

And everyone who called you out
Well, give 'em more to say
No matter what they call you now
You're here, inside the gates

The big man whistles and the dogs feel the vibration
Advance man's tickled by the power of persuasion
Jackson looks out on an old familiar nation
Track Name: Mariana
I don't know the depths we're sinking to
The pressure's immense
Silence overwhelming sense
I don't know the depths we're sinking to

We've gone past the rim and can't turn back
We shouldn't be here
Yearning overwhelming fear
We've gone past the rim and can't turn back

Mariana, Mariana, Mariana

We are floating fodder
In the thickest water
Battered bruised upended
Hobbled blind and rended
Dawning freezing calm
Invited with a wordless song
Eventually I'll sing along
Track Name: Blind Bend
I've been lost in my own head
Trying to find some way out of it
On the wrong side of the road
At a blind bend

If we're ever home again
Not alone but below the same ceiling
Well then, you waited for me
When I went to see what was up ahead

At the blind bend,
The blind bend
No way to know what is up ahead

At the blind bend
No way to know if you're nearing the end

I've been lost in my own mind,
Exhausted so much time
Worried how finite it is
And forgetting just how fine

Always one part in decline
While the other turns to wine
Still I'm absurdly afraid
Of those words I could say to define this

The blind bend,
The blind bend
No way to know what is up ahead

At the blind bend
No way to know if you're nearing the end
