Track Name: "Resplendent" (w/ Emmylou Harris)
RESPLENDENT by bill mallonee
yeah i remember the dark clouds
raining dust for days on end
blew all the earth out to california
and just left us here with the wind
in desperate times you know everybody's part
but it's your own lines you're like to forget
'til what you were meets what you've now become
grins and says "hey, haven't we met"

lost my firstborn that winter
and my wife on the first day of spring
and so i poured my sweat into the earth
yeah to see what that harvest would bring
and i remember howling fury
just like a plague of locusts
egypt's punishment for sins of pride
is that now what has come over us

how much of this was meant to be
how much the work of the devil
how far can one man's eyes really see
in these days of toil and trouble

honey we're all resplendent
yeah honey we are all thrift store
i'm like a wino with a twenty dollar bill
yeah forever and eternally yours
i can make you promises
if you don't expect too much
yes and i will run the distance
if you'll please please excuse my crutch

how much of this is failing flesh
how much the course of retribution
my my how loudly we plead our innocence
long after we've made our contribution
Track Name: Black Cloud O'er Me
Black Cloud O'er Me Run Time: 3:27

well i've got things in this suitcase i'm carrying
well i've got things some of them you can't see
and the others let's pretend they're of no consequence
yeah i've always had this black cloud over me

when the ground you stood upon is giving way
under the rip tide and flood of a cold sea
yeah and your heart keeps making tracks to where it shouldn't be going back
yeah i've always had this black cloud over me

yeah and pride she's a pit of many snakes
and reason well she's still the devil's whore
though the cannon ball may fly and the sabres baptize
well turn the eyes of faith upon the Lord

and some will shake off the sloth of faithlessness
while others simply languish in their sleep
me i just fight to stay awake
yeah i've always had this black cloud over me
