Track Name: Cheezy Wheel - Slippery Hill
SLIPPERY HILL
Words and music by Richie Reinholdt

Slippery hill of love
Sin below heaven above
Keep sliding down
Can't seem to stop
I'll never reach the top

They say true love is like a mountain
Where the faithful find a home
But the cheater never makes it
He slides back down he's left alone

I'm trying hard to make that climb
But this girl keeps giving me the sign
She's turned on her green light
There'll be some slipping and sliding tonight

Set me free turn me loose
Don't hold me back oh babe what's the use
I know I'm gonna slip again
Trapped here in this valley of pain
Track Name: Last to Know
LAST TO KNOW
Words and music by Richie Reinholdt

The walls get closer every morning
Closing in til I lay me down to sleep
The stones collect the breath of angels
Steel bars my soul to keep

Every time we'd come to town
She was always hanging around
At first it was a wink and a smile
Oh but that memory stayed with him for a while

They told me long ago
That time passes so slow
And although love needs room to grow
When lovers leave you're the last one to know

Although we courted off and on
I could never seem to hold him for long
But my need for him was to dear
To let another woman come near

So I followed their footprints from town
Leading through the snow on the ground
I heard a moan in the barn
Her flesh was melting in her arms

A deep winter's cold had chilled the land
But not as cold as the blade in my hands
Steam rolled from the blood in her chest
When I yanked my knife from her breast

Now from my cell window I can see
The short walk to my eternity
A new scaffold for me to climb aboard
And a hangman's noose for my reward
Track Name: I Dunno
I DUNNO
Words and music by Richie Reinholdt

I dunno if the blink of an eye
Measures the time between hello and goodbye
Opaque signs beckoning us on
March in time closer to the dawn

Where the sun always shines and happiness is mine I dunno

And I dunno if collective fantasy
Is enough to set the captives free
Bound in chains shackled with remorse
Fashion slaves riding the gift horse

Where the sun always shines and happiness is mine I dunno
All these things that I can’t see unless I close my eyes tightly

If I try I can see I can see a million miles
Across the sea to a land of manic smiles
Where caustic hands are grabbing for their share
Two-fisted minds clutching at the air

Where the sun always shines and happiness is mine I dunno
All these things that I can’t see unless I close my eyes tightly

I dunno why salvation’s bought and sold
Redemption in exchange for gold
But payments of bribery alone
Won’t guarantee a place closer to the throne

Where the sun always shines and happiness is mine I dunno

I dunno if I can count how many times
I’m hypnotized by seductive rhymes
Words of love whispered soft and low
Torrid scenes in some Bali-wood show

Where the sun always shines and happiness is mine I dunno
Oh where the sun always shines and happiness is mine I dunno

Track Name: Paint the Night
PAINT THE NIGHT
Words and music by Britt Arnesen

Let’s paint the night with northern lights
Shades of green to dance across the skies
And a crescent moon to sing the lullabies
My heart writes for you, the love of my life

When you’re lost follow my north star
When you’re lonely reach out for my arms
I’m the brightest beacon in your dark
Shining out to where your frontiers are

And paint your night with northern lights
Shades of green to dance across the skies
And a crescent moon to sing the lullabies
My heart writes for you, the love of my life

As the sun marches toward spring’s day
This night, winter’s cold remains
I’m by your side an ever-burning fire
To keep you warm is all that I desire

Let's the paint the night with northern lights
Shades of green to dance across our skies
And a crescent moon to sing the lullabies
My heart writes for you, the love of my life
Track Name: Happiness
HAPPINESS
Words and music by Richie Reinholdt

Busy lives happy hands
Current styles making plans
Washing clothes and wearing skin
Breathing out and breathing in

Happiness waits for no one
Comes and goes takes its time
Somewhere between joy and sorrow
Satisfaction draws a line

Making friends paying rent
Dinner dates money spent
Eagles fly spirits soar
Can we just have a little more

Socrates and his mom
TV dinners on the lawn
Rituals in paradise
It’s such a chore being nice

Oh, you can’t hold a memory
Without reflective history
The remainder of a smile
Only lingers for a while
Track Name: Barnacle Rock Road
BARNACLE ROCK ROAD
Words and music by Britt Arnesen

Grandma's got a cottage by the seaside
Helped my grandpa build it age of 25
Wife of a fisherman, two boys and a plan
Theyamed that boat Happenstance

In that story Grandma told, one day on the outer coast
Three men washed ashore and a boat got crushed
Way down on Barnacle Rock Road she swears she saw their ghosts
Walking down the tideline toward the dusk

Highway 101 runs down through Bandon
Logging trucks and fishing boats and cranberries
There's hard work for an honest lad, keeps the soul from getting sad
For the young man who lost his dad

In that story Grandma told, one day on the outer coast
Three men washed ashore and a boat got crushed
Way down on Barnacle Rock Road she swears she saw their ghosts
Walking down the tideline toward the dusk

Grandma never wanted him to stay here
But he couldn't shake those sea legs, he's a mariner
He said this ain't no promised land, I feed it, it bites my hand
So he named that boat The Worried Dad

In that story Grandma told, one day on the outer coast
Three men washed ashore and a boat got crushed
Way out on Barnacle Rock Road she swears she saw their ghosts
Walking down the tideline towards the dusk

Way down on Barnacle Rock Road he can still see his father's ghost
Walking down the tideline toward his dust.
Track Name: La Palouse
LA PALOUSE
words and music by Britt Arnesen

Les prairies palousiennes
Cultiver du blé
Terre comme un damier
Verte ou en jachère
Croissance et sénescence
On a ou on n'a pas de chance
Les collines s'étendent
À l'infini

Aller à La Palouse, aller
Entendre l'appel du vent
La Palouse est morne quand tu n'es pas là
Aller, aller la bàs

Tu as planté beaucoup des graines
Des fleurs sauvages que j'aime
When I was dark and missing you
Elles me consolaient
Au loin, une grange
Par ici, ta mémoire
Parfois un avion
J'attends la moisson

Viens avec tes ennuis
Viens avec tes grands soucis
Viens et laisser les ici
Oublie la maladie
Croissance et sénescence
Ce n'est pas les fleurs qui me manquent
La tristesse d'être sans toi
J'attends la moisson

Britt's translation:

The Palouse prairies
Grow wheat
Landscape like a checkerboard
Green or fallow

Growth and senescence
You're lucky or not
The hills go on
To infinity

Go to the Palouse, go
Hear the call of the wind
The Palouse mourns when you're not there
Go, go there

You have planted many seeds
Of the wildflowers that I love
When I was dark and missing you
They consoled me

In the distance, a barn
Over here, your memory
Sometimes, a plane
I await the harvest

chorus

Come with your troubles
Come with your biggest worries
Come and leave them here
Forget the sickness

Growth and senescence
It's not the flowers that I miss
The sadness of being without you
I await the harvest
