Track Name: Take Old Henry
I have to wonder
about people’s lives
And what perpetuates below the veneer

Now take old Henry, a solid piece of work
a bit of a wheel, a knower of things

He played some kind of part in some long forgotten battle
Where he conjured a racket and skipped town with the loot

A sharp rye grin, spoke of his time with the ladies
on that foreign soil, could have been true

I have to wonder
about people’s lives
And what perpetuates below the veneer

Now he’s a rounder on that crazy frozen avenue
knows how to ramble, hasn’t forgotten how to gamble

Another Japanese fable, talking ‘bout messing with the law
and how it didn’t end very satisfactorily
I can’t hear you, he said, over all the racket

I have to wonder
about people’s lives
And what perpetuates below the veneer

I have to wonder
Track Name: Slow Down, Summer Night
Steel blue water
Soft and warm is your breeze
Sailing into the dark night
To take us away

slow down summer night x 4

When the day begins to settle down,
we would all go down there
to the east side of the city
where the water meets the sand

slow down summer night x 4

And if the evening is just right
you can see clear to Ohio
Oh, how lucky it was
like another place in time

slow down summer night x 4
