Track Name: The Bear
The bear moved into the city/when all of the work dried up
put it all in his pick up truck/and drove down the mountain
and he scoured the classified ads/for a window with a view of the trees
signed his name got a set of keys/and the empty light of a room

and he said/i wonder if this is what heaven is like/and what if it means i'm more dead than alive
and what would i be if i turned out the light/before night fell

The bear walked awhile for groceries/and everyone stared at the ground
moving to the beat of the sound/the voices of the engines
and the sidewalk wore at his feet/and it hurt just a little more
to open and close the door/of the bodega on the corner

and he said/i wonder if this is what heaven is like/and what if it means i'm more dead than alive
and what would i be if i turned out the light/before night fell

in the old days/we would up and run
in the old days/we were so young

the bear laid down on a park bench/and stared straight up at the sky
waiting on the first starlight/in the space between the buildings
and he stayed awake all night/with the cars and the people
and his fingers formed a steeple/pointed at the sky

and he said/i wonder if this is what heaven is like/and what if it means i'm more dead than alive
and what would i be if i turned out the light/before night fell
Track Name: Never Had A Gun
I never had a gun/i think it would be heavy
if i was the only one/but i never had a gun
it's easier to say/everything i'd never do
all the roads i'd never take/it's easier to say

i will believe you/if you believe me

in the middle of the night/there are breaking sounds
it's a dangerous time/in the middle of the night
i could take a bullet/burning to bleed
and never even know it/i could take a bullet

i will believe you/if you believe me

stand up taller than/stare straight into the sun
tell me what still needs to be done

i will believe you/if you believe me

i'm not sure of anyone/but i never had a gun
