Disappear from your hometown
Go and find the people that you know
Show them all your good parts
Leave town when the bad ones start to show
Go and wed a woman, a pretty girl that you’ve never met
Make sure she knows you love her well
But don’t make any other promises
The weight of lies will bring you down
And follow you to every town
Cause nothin happens here
That doesn’t happen there
So when you run make sure you run
To something and not away from
Cause lies don’t need an aero plane
To chase you anywhere
Weight Of Lies - The Avett Brothers
Yardsale - The Avett Brothers
So if I had the money I’d buy everything, and cover the whole lot with good gasoline, and burn it for all that I care for the past, and rid mother earth of what never should last, and give her the present of ash made of a yardsale.
Swept Away - The Avett Brothers
Well life is ever changing, but I will always find a constant and comfort in your love. With your heart my soul is bound, and as we dance I know that heaven will be found. Well, you send my life a whirling, darling, when you’re twirling on the floor. And who cares about tomorrow? Girl, what more is tomorrow than another day when you swept me away?
Laundry Room - The Avett Brothers
Last night I dreamt the whole night long. I woke with a head full of songs. I spent the whole day, I wrote ‘em down, but its a shame tonight I’ll burn the lyrics, ‘cause every chorus was your name. Break this tired old routine, and this time don’t make me leave. I am a breathing time machine. I’ll take you all for a ride.
The Once and Future Carpenter - The Avett Brothers
I ain’t from Texas, but I made my way from Dallas, and I know the lonesome sound is following. I ain’t a gambler, but I can recognize a hand, and when to hold, when the queens are staring back at me. Once I was a carpenter, man my hands were calloused. I could swing a metal mallet sure and straight. But I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry, and I left the timbers where they lay. Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me. And when I lose my direction I’ll look up to the sky. And when the black cloak drags upon the ground I’ll be ready to surrender, and remember: Well we’re all in this together. If I live the life I’m given, I won’t be scared to die.
Slight Figure Of Speech - The Avett Brothers
They say you’ve got to lose a couple fights to win. It’s hard to tell From where I’m sitting. They say that this is where the fun begins. I guess it’s time that I was quitting. They said “I hope that you will never change”. I went and cut my hair. They say “Don’t take your business to the big time”. I bought us tickets there. A slight figure of speech. I cut my chest wide open. They come and watch us bleed. Is it art like I was hoping now?
Musically speaking, September is fantastic.
The Avett Brothers released The Carpenter, which I loved. The Killers released Battle Born, which I’m currently listening to. Guess what? I freaking love it. And Mumford & Sons are due to release Babel soon, which I already know I’m going to love because I already love half the songs that album is going to include. I’m pretty sure they all got together and said “Hey, let’s blow the world’s mind by release so much good music back to back.” I can dig it though.

Here’s the Johnny Cash song they were talking about in the previous video. They took Johnny, and basically added the Avetts in. So good :)
