Track Name: Candy
Pulled under in the eye of the storm, the waters cold it shakes my bones my body’s getting sore. I’m held down by the weight of the sea and every wave that comes my way crashes right on me. And I don’t see any sight of land please God is there for me? Let me find peace and rest easy. You tied this anchor to my feet and pushed me over and watched me slowly sink. Down to the ocean floor. When I awoke someone spoke these subtle words like warmth. With clear eyes and fresh tongue your words flow just like doves. You tied this anchor to my feet and pushed me over and watched me slowly sink. But I’ve been just swimming along with the currents all winter long. You tied this anchor to my feet and pushed me over and watched me slowly sink.
Track Name: Country
Pulled up to the house and let the smoke pour out. I’ve been here before, I made friends with the floor. Pick me up, pick me up, I ain’t had enough. A kiss to a fuck, you’re such a lush. I felt her hands grip tight on me. My blackened lungs trying to catch the breeze. She fell straight to her knees in spite of everything.
Track Name: The Drifter & The Gypsy
You woke up, and let the blood rush back to your veins. You fucked up. You had the blood rush straight to your brain. You’ve made some mistakes. What a sad, sad shame. You need to go out and make a fucking change. Can’t live your life like a goddamn runaway. So let me take you home and lay you in bed because I think you could use the rest. And we all know it’s true, and I think that you do too. Or is it just too hard to admit? You bust your gun out each and every year. Firing off shots that nobody cares to hear. Sure you make it pretty and you compliment it in rhyme. But come one kid, it’s not your place, it’s not the time. So let me take you home and lay you in bed because I think you could use the rest. And we all know it’s true, and I think that you do too. Or is it just too hard to admit?
Track Name: Thick As Thieves
I’ve kept this secret deep inside. I put it in a bottle and tossed it out to sea. I’ve been trying to erase it now by conquering every bottle that’s passed by me. And all that I remember now is this feeling in my stomach after waking up. Stuck here thinking to myself, “will I ever get up out of this fucking rut?” Remember back when we were kids? Our eyes shined brighter than the burning sun. But now since then we’ve long grown up, and these eyes don’t shine for anyone. Out beneath the trees in the summer’s heat, we’re just a couple of kids who were as thick as thieves. And honestly I can’t believe this is ending. So take a long walk home. And when you’re walking down that road, “I hope you think of me,” she said and “remember back to how things used to be.” Everything I’ve ever loved, and everyone I know starts to slowly pile up and crush my bones. Everything I’ve loved, and everyone I know starts to slowly pile up and crush my bones.
Track Name: Zero
You’re leaving early? Can I ride home with you? Would that be okay with him? Or is that against his rules? I see some seats, could one more be filled? Is their room enough for me? I promise I’ll sit still. And your heart was gold and the flame inside burnt blue. If I could I’d go ignite your bones and share one more drink with you. The air was thin when we started the drive. But then the fog rolled in to separate our sights. I know I’ll see you. But all in good time. Lay your head to rest now and shut your tired eyes.. And your heart was gold and the flame inside burnt blue. If I could I’d go ignite your bones and share one more drink with you.
Track Name: Heat
Watching beads of sweat drip down your spine. On your hands and knees, tonight you’re all mine. A light kiss to heavy breathing, staring at the stars through the ceiling. A sweet tooth for wet thigh, watching me go down on you with those eyes. Biting your lip an throwing your head back as you moan, pulling on my hair as I go soft and slow. Tonight the bed caught fire. And I got hung up on your wire. I’m coming for you, I’ve got you exactly where I want you. And there ain’t nothing you can do. And I can feel the heat rising. Coming up through the sheets. And I can feel this fire burning. Burning up between you and me. Tonight the bed caught fire.
Track Name: Skeletons
Get em out. Out of your bed. Because the sheets you’re lying in you share with skeletons. There’s a house. No one seems to live there now. They’ve been put to rest. In the back out by the fence. They come, they go. I can still hear their bones rattling away. I dug a hole, threw them below to that shallow grave. Get em out, out of your bed. Because the sheets you’re lying in you share with skeletons. Hand full of flowers. Throw them where they lay. You can’t just undo some things you create. They come, they go. I can still hear their bones rattling away. I dug a hole, threw them below to that shallow grave. Into that shallow grave.
Track Name: Vertical
I wrote it down, to make it clear. Because all the words I said before never reached your ears. Maybe we, we were just too young. Or did it seem as if, I was speaking in tongues? I can’t make sense, sense of it all. I loved you more than air the air in my lungs. But they burst, and you’d float away. With all the weight of those words, I never got to say. I was trying to impress the thought of maybe I ain’t had enough. Now I sit and recollect those thoughts because I’m thinking I took way too much. I grabbed a smoke, picked up a light. Went and sat out back, with the thoughts building up inside. Of how it cut, cut you so deep. And I stood back and watched, watched you slowly bleed out. I was trying to impress the thought of maybe I ain’t had enough. Now I sit and recollect those thoughts because I’m thinking I took way too much. Now I’m trying, now I’m trying to forget. Because I’m dying, dying from all my regrets. Now I’m trying, now I”m trying to forget. Because I’m dying, dying from all my regrets.
Track Name: Time Past
Come in, come in she said, please just wipe your feet. You can stay here only for tonight, but in the morning you’ve got to leave. A single drink led to three or four, the bed was cold but her body warm. Shelter over head to avoid the storm. And I’ve been thinking about every little word she stuck inside of my head. And I’ve been thinking about every little word she stuck inside of my head. Again and again I drank for forty days and nights trying to kill this demon that I hid deep inside. My blue eyes, my blue eyes slowly fade to grey. I’m burning every once away, I’m burning every ounce away in time. And I’ve been thinking about every little word she stuck inside of my head. And I’ve been thinking about every little word she stuck inside of my head.
Track Name: My Father's Son
I was cold inside and out, and you were there to offer me some help. You fed me and kept me warm. Looked at me with open arms. I’ve made some mistakes like you. Hope one day I make it through. People say you become what you do. And I’m starting to think that maybe it’s true. Because I’m my father’s son. And I don’t mind it at all, I wouldn’t have it any other way. And maybe in about ten years time I might have one of my own. “Wouldn’t that be the day!?” I can hear you say. I just want to thank you dad.
Track Name: Heavy Hands
I spent all last night drinking away all my selfish problems and this stupid fucking pain I brought myself. Who’s else to blame? I put out my heavy hands and picked up some extra weight. Come on come on let’s hear that same sad song again. The one where I fucked up and we never spoke again. This ones worse, it seems I’m cursed and I severed every thread. But I live with these regrets. With these regrets. I spent all last month trying to explain how I got my shit together and how I’ve made that change from who I was before. I ain’t the same. I could say it a thousand times but you wouldn’t care anyway. Come on come on let’s hear that same sad song again. The one where I fucked up and we never spoke again. This ones worse, it seems I’m cursed and I severed every thread. But I live with these regrets. With these regrets. I just want you to come on through my window tonight. Watch me while I sleep, slip into my sheets just one last time. Come on come on let’s hear that same sad song again. The one where I fucked up and we never spoke again. This ones worse, it seems I’m cursed and I severed every thread. But I live with these regrets. With these regrets.
