Track Name: Verbal Chess
Growing up and closing in
Accepting the good things I could've been
Hear the back mask, everyone is under attack
If you're feeling sick, keep listening
Tear those demons off your back, again

Tired out from all your travelling
The walk to the bathroom and back to the bed again
Sing the same verse over and over again
Singing of how you can't ever win
Matches played of verbal chess, in your head

Lose your head again
When you can't ever win
Demon win again
Close my heart I'm out of this
Verbal chess again
Shut my mouth I ain't ever goona win
Stay in bed YOU'RE DEAD!
Track Name: Slow Emotion
I am going to need a hideaway, after all the things that I'm about to say to you
You, living a life of dissonance
I am not an actor, split my face in two

Slow emotion, turn my head around
Dry erasing myself
I feel the notion, you feel like you're in hell
Slow emotion is eating up my time with you

Drink, what you poured yourself to drink
The only tender at the bar is you
You think, just what you're told to think
Letting everyone inside your head but you

Slow emotion, turn my head around
Dry erasing myself
I feel the notion, you feel like you're in hell
Slow emotion is eating up my time with you
Track Name: Judas Iscariot
Say goodbye and say so long
You broke my heart and did me wrong my friend
I hope to never see you again
Don't say the things that make me smile, I wrote the song that birthed your child and then... And then you killed me

Oh its a perfect story, wrap me up in your self glory yeah...
Judas Iscariot

Say goodnight the crowd is gone
You broke their hearts when you pulled out my song
Why would you do that to them?
Don't say the thing that make me smile, I wrote the song that birthed your child and then... And then you killed me

Oh its a perfect story, wrap me up in your self glory yeah...
Judas Iscariot
Wonder who the next one will be to fall victim to your falsified imagery
Judas Iscariot
Your crimes are evident
Falsified, falsified imagery

Hurry up the tide is low, I'm moving fast to miss the undertow
Don't let it happen again
Don't say the things that make me smile, I wrote the song that birthed your child and then... And then you killed me

Oh its a perfect story, wrap me up in your self glory yeah...
Judas Iscariot
Wonder who the next one will be to fall victim to your falsified imagery
Judas Iscariot
Your crimes are evident
Falsified, falsified imagery
Track Name: Broken Teeth
I aint ever been better, I tell myself in times like these
I feel glad in lofty dreams that aren't as harsh as reality

So long tortured soul, hello broken teeth
I'm a little less than before
A little less than half of me

I saw the devil by the door, he had a brown bottle of whiskey
He knew where I was that night when you lost my spare set of keys

So long tortured soul, hello broken teeth
I'm a little less than before
A little less than half of me

I saw Jesus slumbering, beneath that boat on a raging sea
He heard me when I called his name
If I dont listen, he cant teach

So long tortured soul, hello broken teeth
I'm a little less than before
A little less than half of me
Track Name: Comin' Round
I'm comin' round
I'm comin' out of the clouds tonight
I found a light
You opened up my starry night

Sift through broken glass, wait for time to pass
Pictures of radios help me get through the past
Out of darkness, out of darkness, out of darkness
I found light

Sing through the night
Play songs of freedom, play songs for life
Dance with all your friends
Dance till the morning, till the music ends

Sift through broken glass, wait for time to pass
Pictures of radios help me get through the past
The fallen autumn leaves help me see through the trees
Out of darkness, out of darkness, out of darkness
I found light

I'm comin' round, I'm comin' round, I'm comin' round, I'm comin' round, I'm comin' round, I'm comin' round, I!!!!!
Track Name: As We Go
You can't escape from the common good
You know whats right cuz mother told you
Just plucking our souls from the ashes in the backyard
So give me a pen I need to write this down

As we go, as we go, as we go
I'm goona write it down

Sunday drivin' goona bring me my salvation
Hand me a pen and I'll write that check
Ask my friends they're goona tell you I'm broken
You'll learn this if you haven't yet

As we go, as we go, as we go
I'm goona write it down

Come down from your bed you been sleeping away, sleeping away the day
Don't try to get in my head you're a closet drunk and a deacon
Theres a lot a things in my head that I wanna say and I keep forgetting yeah
Theres a lot a things in my head, theres a lot a things, theres a lot a things
Theres a lot a things in my head that I wanna say and I keep forgetting....
To say

Monday morning goona bring me my conviction
If Sunday night hasn't left me dead
Tuesday evenin' I'll be playing and drinking
Don't know whats right, my mother never said

As we go, as we go, as we go
I'm goona write it down
Track Name: Red Convertible
I drove a long way in my truck today
I turned up the radio
I rolled the window down, I zipped up my coat
It's getting colder now
Every time I saw a red convertible I thought it's not possible
Is it you I see in the mirror behind me?

When the morning came, I woke up slowly
The sun was beating down on me
I looked around the house, It was unfamiliar
I guess its time to leave
When I walked out, I saw a red convertible
I thought its not possible
Is it you I see in the mirror behind me?

Singled out, my broken mirror I see
Running your red light skyline
Oh singled out, in my broken mirror I see
Running your red light skyline

I drove a long way in my truck today
I turned up the radio
Track Name: The Walking Dead
Going way downtown, my feet in my shoes
Broken leaf springs and empty pockets, I'm singing the blues
Got a cigarette, my eyes out of my head
Can't even daydream when you're the walking dead

Busted at the end of the summertime
Standing at the very end of the breadline
Track Name: Skylight
A song worth singing by yourself ain't worth anything to anyone else but you
You drink alone at your house, guess that's what you're about
You're living the dream
Just what I see...

A trickled drone in your ear, not what you're hearing
Go to the bathroom
Write the words in your head
Collect your check and don't leave anything unsaid

You're a skylight
You're a window
Late at night the star I see
Lord knows I'm with you in the bathroom, singing to myself
Oh, dangerous dreams, it ain't worth sleeping, no...
Your pride walks on, your pride is that strong
You're a skylight
You're a window
Late at night the star I see

A song worth singing by yourself ain't worth anything to anyone else but you
Track Name: Southern Moon
Southern moon went sinking, your slow eyes never crossed my mind
Breathing bourbon on the windshield the objects in your view multiplied
There are blood stains on my fingers from cleaning the cuts around your eyes
You drive too long against the odds
You're running out of time before you die, before you die

Take it slow
You're not even old
Don't go home
On your twisted unlit road
I ain't ready to go home
Don't take me along

I will live outside my will but I surely ain't goona lie
Don't you drink your poison drink and choose for me when I die
I don't ride along your currents, your loneliness do testify
Oh you drive too long against the odds, you're running out of time before you die, before you die

Take it slow
You're not even old
Don't go home
On your twisted unlit road
I ain't ready to go home
Don't take me along

Take it slow
You're not even old
Don't go home
On your twisted unlit road
I ain't ready to go home
Don't take me along
