Track Name: Rising Sun
This car could take me anywhere from under this back porch
And the stars die down on the edge of town
I wonder what it’s all for
Contrails phase in violet haze in warm summer wind
On this open night I’m wondering
When will life begin

(chorus)

Rising to the Sun
Rising to the Sun
Rising to the Sun
Rising to the Sun

City light in amber night on lone main street
The only sound echoing are my two tired feet
I shout out towards the distance
Where the stars kiss the grass
And I’m wondering in this burnout town
Do I have a chance

(chorus)
(bridge)

I could go anywhere
I could go anywhere
I could go anywhere

(chorus)
Track Name: Proving Grounds
He used to stare at the lake full of stars
With smokestacks behind and westbound cars
And the wind blew down temples made of salt
Cross the lonesome Wasatch Fault

(chorus)

On the proving grounds
On the proving grounds
On the proving grounds

He swore he was alone in disbelief
Gilded temples with gold leaf
The Moral Majority they turn away
Saving their faith but let the poor wash away
He used to scream out, scream out to the dark
I’ve lost my god but I haven’t lost my heart

(chorus)

I’ve lost my god but I haven’t lost my heart
I’ve lost my god but I haven’t lost my heart
I’ve lost my god but I haven’t lost my heart

(chorus)
