Counting Crows - August And Everything After: Wikipedia Album Entry
August and Everything After is the first commercially-released album of the American rock band Counting Crows, released September 14, 1993.
The album cover depicts handwritten lyrics to a song called "August and Everything After", but the band decided against featuring the song on the album of the same name; it wasn't until over a decade later that it was played as part of one of their live concerts. A live performance of the song can be viewed here.
On September 18, 2007, a two-disc deluxe edition of the album was issued. The first disc contains the original album, remastered by Adam Ayan and Stephen Marcussen, with six songs (including three demos) added as bonus tracks. The second disc is taken from the band's last performance during the August tour, recorded at the Elysée Montmartre in Paris, France on December 9, 1994.

Step out the front door like a ghost into the fog
Where no one notices the contrast of white on white
And in between the moon and you, angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right
I took the cannon ball down to the ocean
Across the desert from the sea to shining sea
I rode a ladder that climbed across the nation
50 million feet of earth between the buried and me
My friend assures me, "It's all or nothing"
I am not worried, I am not overly concerned
My friend implores me, "For one time only
Make an exception" I am not worried
Blue morning, blue morning
Wrapped in strands of fist and bone
Doesn't have to mean you're on your own
This circus is falling down on its knees
The big top is crumbling down
It's raining in Baltimore fifty miles east
Where you should be, no one's around
I wanted so badly
Somebody other than me
Staring back at me
But you were gone, gone, gone
Take the way home leads back to Sullivan Street
Cross the water home through the town
Past the shadows that fall down wherever we meet
Pretty soon now I won't come around
When I think of Heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying down in your sea of pens and feathers
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Just down the street from your hotel, baby
I stay at home with my disease
Ain't this position familiar, darling?
Well, all monkeys do what they see
Sha la, la, la, la, la, la
Start tearin' the old man down
Run past the heather and down to the old road
Start turnin' the grain into the ground
Roll a new leaf over
