"Javelin" as written by and Michael T Torke....
The headlights coming at me look like angels in retreat
And the city of angels looks like hell on the horizon
Will you be there waiting for me
To stop this metal ache from creeping out of my engine

I should have brought my grandfather's Bible
I'm always getting myself into trouble
And he survived World War Two
He held on to it like I want to hold on to you

My dreams are torpedo messengers
Exploding in the desert while you sleep
Your valley it crawls with cactus and failure
If the stars are on fire, then it's all because of me

So goodbye old dustbowl
Hello Mojave

Well you've been living too close to the ocean
To hear my trembling voice plateau
You might find it shattered scattered and broken
Along the seashore among the other shells

I've got to learn to sing from my abdomen
And hold on to the ghosts and let them haunt me
To think of my heart as a javelin
Falling down and descending into Los Angeles

I've got the summer of strangers to look forward to
If you aren't here and waiting for me
And the blue of my eyes to look backward through
More headlights blowing by me indecently

So goodbye Great Plains
Hello little earthquake
