Real Estate Holding Pattern

Six o’clock, the crickets stop

The sky fills up with light

Was it the rain or a southbound train

That woke me up last night?

It’s just this game, makes me insane

I wonder where we’re going

Clear a path for earth to pass

I just wish we could stop

Around in circles

Far from the ground

Waiting to put this thing down

Where was I Tuesday night?

Where was I this morning

What this is is not real life

At least it isn’t boring

I can’t open my mouth to speak

I can’t open my eyes

Someone press pause, wrap me in gauze

And turn the lights off

Around in circles

Far from the ground

Waiting to put this thing down

Around in circles

Far from the ground

Waiting to put this thing down

Whoa, oh, waiting to put this thing down

Real Estate Beach Comber

What you want is just outside your reach

You keep on searchin’

You’re walking down that Pensacola beach

You keep repeatin’

While you’re waiting for that sound

Apparatus to the ground

You’re stealing from the lost and found

But what you find

ain’t what you had in mind

Until you find your Rolex in the sand

You won’t be stopping

Until that solid gold is in your hand

You won’t be happy

Call your office on the phone

Say you won’t be coming home

You fell into vacation zone

Oh-Oh-Oh

Real Estate Past Lives

I can not come back to this neighbourhood

With out feeling my own age

I walk past these houses where we once stood

I see past lives but some how you’re still here

Underneath this canopy

All light up above us

Oh but I can see the sky

Is not the only thing that changes rapidly

This is not the same place I used to know

But it still has that same old sound

And even the lights on this yellow road

Are the same as when this was our town

Underneath this canopy

All light up above us

Oh but I can’t see the sky

Is not the only thing that changes rapidly

And even the lights on this yellow road

Are the same as when this was our town

Real Estate Diamond Eyes

It’s a time to be humble, it’s a time to be free

It’s a time to raise our voices loud and not go quietly

As this time marches on into great uncertainty

I have music all around me bringing timeless melody

There’s a tide in the water

Where the mountains reach the sea

And the lilac grows beyond the scope of forgotten memory

Just as simple and as strange as the sea becomes the tree

There are people shouting clearly “I am you and you are me”

Oh, these times we share as this time will end

To be sure it will not come again

Just timeless myths, on her you can depend

It’s a time to be humble, it’s a time to be free

It’s a time to raise our voices loud and not go quietly

Where the sky meets the shoreline and the mountains meet the sea

I have music all around me bringing timeless melody

Diamond eye will not go quietly

Diamond eye will not go quietly

Diamond eye will, diamond eye will, diamond eye will not go quietly

Real Estate Navigator

We stare at the shadows on the sidewalk

They’re moving on flowers rendered in chalk

The day is young but I’m already spent

I have no idea where that time went

Cross the kitchen floor

Steal out the back door

Past the monument

I’ll meet you where the pavement ends

Cross the kitchen floor

Steal out the back door

Past the monument

I’ll meet you where the pavement ends

I stare at the hands on the clock

I’m still waiting for them to stop

The earliest light is just shinning in

And I’ve no idea where the days been

Real Estate Primitive

When the night is young in the land I’m from

The seasons ghost away

The starts at night obscured by light

Can still lead me though this

Don’t know where I want to be

But I’m glad that you’re with me

And all I know is it’d be easy to leave

And in my mind I can’t see the street

Where you and I will live

You still can’t see the stars at night

But were not primitive

Don’t know where I want to be

Oh but I’m glad that you’re with me

And all I know is it’d be easy to leave

Real Estate Darling

The black and yellow finches

That nest in knotted ferns

Which hang upon our front porch

Wait for the warm sun to return

Impatiently, as I wait for you

Impatiently, as I wait for you

That night surrenders swiftly

The moon retreats from sight

The darkness that surrounds me

The sun cuts like a knife to shine

Impatiently

Impatiently

The birds singing

The sun rising

Impatiently

As I wait for you

For you, for you, for you

Real Estate Green River

Hey green river what can I do?

if it’s alright I’ll walk next to you

sit in the shade of your beechwood trees

don’t you know these days I ain’t hard to please

sprinklers coming on

a shower in [?]

and the runoff feeds the flow of your muddy water

your many thousand [?]

your [?] for your hungry [?]

cause you know that we are all your sons and daughters

hey green river what can I do?

if it’s alright I’ll walk next to you

sit in the shade of your beechwood trees

don’t you know these days I ain’t so hard to please

Real Estate Fake Blues

Just last year seems so long

When I used to live alone

Now I sell shit on the phone

‘Cause I don’t wanna live at home

Uh oh

Well it’s not as if I choose

To be settled with these fake blues

But your worries ain’t so different from my own

Though I’m far more accident prone

People ask me for my name

But this number’s just the same

If this all is just a game

I have only myself to blame

Uh oh

Well it’s not as if I choose

To be settled with these fake blues

But I gotta find a reason to write this song

And I won’t be here for long
