Train Operator Man

I want to swim in a river of shame
I want to walk where there is no rain
I want to be with people like me
I want to live inside a tree

Train operator man
Take me someplace I can understand

I need a shot of whiskey sometimes
I need a place where they drink all the time
I need a rose bush I can call all mine
I need a room where I can blow my mind

Train operator man
Take me someplace I can understand

I got to fly through the roof with you
I got to show my secrets to you
I got to get out of the Hotel of Pain
I got to get God to sign my check again
I want to get rid of all my ties
I want to live in a place without lies

Train operator man
Take me someplace I can understand

Train, Train, Train

Train, train, train you know the way
Take me to him and don't delay
If I've sinned I know it's alright
He likes his friends as dark as nigt

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I hear he lives behind the moon
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
He's got my soul and I need it soon

Goin down at full speed
Get out of my way if you please
If he's home I hope he lets me in
We got a deal it's about to begin
Through the dark through the light
I'm hoping to find the other side

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I got a plan take me to his room
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I need his advice to get me through

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I hear he lives behind the moon
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
He's got my soul and I need it soon

Livin' like this ain't very hard
Just call out his name and quit your job
Like the moon in the light
The Devil's hard to reach at night

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I hear he lives behind the moon
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
He's got my soul and I need it soon

The Common Good

She tried to bring the ends together
But they were nowhere in sight
He thought he'd go his own way
But that way could not be found

Sometime between the Spring and Fall
They came upon the same person
Each willing to go as far as they could
Somewhere between thier common good

We are on our way
To a seperate place

She never saw trouble like this
He thought it would never end
They tore up the living room floor
Couldn't drive the car anymore


By the time they split up
The winds had already changed
The long road was a dead end
The right had turned to a left

We are on our way
To a seperate place

Spring Ends Today

It's been that type of day
You get up and walk away
But you can't even
If you tried
Standin' at the door
Who is it for

You lose again
We never win

It looks like spring
Will end again
Nothin' much matters
Nobody wins

You lose again
We never win

Well most of the time
We bid hello
But then we say
Goodbye

Nevada

Past the state line
Bright red clay
Open up my time
And I'm somehow behind
The right place in my mind

Yes I'm going round again
And it's someplace in my mind

I'm dreaming in color
While the headlights shine
The road is weary
And gone is my mind
The right place in my mind

Yes I'm going round again
For the right place in my mind

Well the hills are alive
With the dark blue wind
And I'm open wide
Like a hurricane spin
For the right place in my mind

Switch Blade Knife 2

Got a little thing I call my own
She brings me luck when I'm all alone
She can stop time from movin on
This is how I live my life

Switch blade knife

In the evening when the dusk is dawn
I bring my loved one along
I get myself into a mess
She's my hope in distress

Switch blade knife

When the night comes to an end
I know she's my only friend
If she ever does fail
Probly find myself up in jail

Switch blade knife

Don't ever leave me cause I know I can't go on without you

Displaced

We had our day
And dreamed of the time
When we could say
These surroundings are mine

Is this the time
Is this the place
Are you not fine
Or am I displaced

As time drove by
We looked for more
Do you want me to say
Just what's in store

If the sun's in your eyes
Do you hide it away
And in the night sky
Are we just farther away

Late At Night

The milage ran on
As we broke down
In the night rain
And the bar room roared
And the noise filled the spaces
Between you and I
I forgot the hings you told me
And you took the things I remember
You might be all here now
But I remember not long ago
When you packed it up
And decided to go

Head Full Of Bourbon

I'm somewhere inbetween the dark and the light
I got a head full of burbon but I feel alright
And I'm doing things that I can't comprehend
Well nobody believes that I got a plan

Cause I'm somewhere in between

I'm gonna go to a place i can call all mine
I'm gonna seach till the end of time

I'm somewhere in between

Lose Sight

This job I got
I can't get nowhere
So I'm packing up
Getting rid of what I don't need

Someday I'll see
How it's all meant to be

Find myself looking
Out the same old window
Trying to find somethng
To pull it all together
Is this what happens when you lose sight

How it's all meant to be

Through states I never heard of
Through places I never felt
I only want to lay down
And make it go away

How it's all meant to be

Switch Blade Knife 1

Got a little thing that I call my own
She brings me luck when I'm all alone
She stops time from movin on
This is the way I live my life

Carry around a switch blade knife in my pocket

If It Weren't For Jesus

If it weren't for Jesus
I wouldn't be here today
If it weren't for the Lord
The darkness wouldn't go away

The next time I see the Lord
I'll give him the good news
Tell him his word
Has been put to good use

Well I got no complaints
I got nothing to say
If he's coming
I hope he comes my way

The next time I see the Lord
I'll give him the good news
Tell him his word
Has been put to good use

From the night sky
He'll be fallin down
I'll be there waiting
On the dark side of town

Hey Jesus
Save a place for me
If yer gonna free us
How long before you get to me?

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Acoustic guitar / Shaker / Pots and pans

Wake Up

Wake up
The clouds are low
Wake up
It's time to go
If I see you again
I won't know

Wake up
The sun is down
Wake up
There's no one around
I wish it wasn't so

Bonus tracks

A selection of outtakes from the Somewhere Inbetween
recording sessions

Stare To The Bone

When I see you I am weeping
You can't see cause you are sleeping
I'm so near I could touch you
Instead I sit and watch you
Feel your breath on my face
You can't feel my embrace
In the dark I climb in close
Do the things that you hate most
In the world all alone
I will stare to the bone
Wishing I could take you home

At Night's End

At night's end
She belongs to the wind
If I sleep here
Will I see her again
If the train comes
Should I get back on
Or am I waiting
Just a minute too long

She is the queen
Of all that I see
Is what I'm looking for
Right in front of me

You've been there before
It's nothing new
But then again
This job ain't for you
Tomorrow is hard
To put it into view
Lost in doubt
The answers are a few

She is the queen
Of all that I see
Is what I'm looking for
Right in front of me

The few burdons that we share
Are gospel hymns we sing aloud and...

The Devil Should Be

The river flows
All throuhg my head
And its dark
As dark as lead
If she comes
Tell her for me

I'm way down where the devil should be

A grey wind blows
All through my eyes
And its red
Filled with surprise
If she's gone
Tell her for me

I'm way down where the devil should be

Don't Know Why

I listen to the world go by my window
Nothing seems to change
Except for the few things I don't know

I try to keep up
We try to keep up
Although I don't know why

My friends ask me how is it to be here
When I sit alone worried about my own fears

Well it looks like the end is getting closer all the time
And we all get caught
In what we don't wish to find

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Acoustic guitar / Bass / Drum machine
Recorded: 1/8/96

Give Me A Shot

Alright, yeah, yeah, yeah
Bring it on down

I got money
And it's on my mind
I get a little honey
All the time

She's the one that makes my cry
I ain't got no alibi

I see you coming
From behind
Well I got your body
And its on my mind

If you need a place to go
Give me a shot
Take it down low
I got nothing
Nothing but time
I got nothing but time
Alright
Give it a shot baby

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Bass / Drum machine

Halfway

You say you're gonna
Meet me halfway
You say you're gonna
Forever stay

But I got nothing
Nothing left to say
It's been like this
Nothing left to say

You say it's not done
You say it's not true
When I look in your face
I can't believe you

If Jesus Comes

If Jesus comes will you tell him for me
I've been as good as I can be

Winner never lose
Losers never lose

When he judges us will I be alright
Does he take account of what we do at night

Can we live without our liies
Or is it just a waste of time

If I'm falling down will he remember me
If I call out will he answer me

I'm looking for something that I can't find
Is it in front of me or am I going blind

Real Time

I see the dream in your face
And our time cannot be replaced
From a far off time you came to me
And showed me a world I couldn't see

Somewhere across the road of time
You are there in real time

I see the world in your stare
And a look from you in the sky

I see the road in your mind
You are the spring of my life

When I'm Gone

When I laughed back
Wanting more
Than what I came in
Came in here for
Sometimes I fear
The journey will never
Never be as clear
As the first time

When I'm gone
The world will blow
When I'm gone
The world will blow
Through my window

If the end is here
Is there anything more
For us to fear
What does it mean
If we can't be without
The things that we hear
The things that we hold dear
And that we fear

Sometime last night
I fell in deep
Inside a whole
And I couldn't see
The world at all
So if you take
Try to take that ride
Beware of the other side

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Acoustic guitar / Bass / Drum machine
Recorded: 11/9/95 & 11/10/95

When The Time Came

Last time we met
Was a night I'll never forget
The way she faught at me
The things I could see

If I come back again
Would it still be the end

When the time came
To re-write my name
And give up the cause
It was just too long
