Bars 02:48
Forgive me father, for I have sinned Should never have let it go to my head Now I'm layin' low until the blue lights dim Hanging out with ghosts in my bed Where do I go sir? Last night I was so sure I've had about all I can take This ain't a joke sir, I just couldn't coax her to get the fuck out of this place So fly if you want I don't try, cuz ya know You're putting Bars all over my heart Sly if ya think ya don't lie, cuz ya know You put Bars on my heart, Bars on my heart Fight until I'm bloody Run until I'm muddy The only things I know how to do Cut until it hurts the worst Can't hurt me if I hurt you first I wouldn't be shit without you So fly if you want I don't try, cuz ya know You're putting Bars all over my heart Sly if ya think ya don't lie, cuz ya know You put Bars on my heart, Bars on my heart So fly if you want I don't try, cuz ya know You're putting Bars all over my heart Sly if ya think ya don't lie, cuz ya know You put Bars on my heart, Bars on my heart

Carry You 03:36
Heaven knows It's just the way it goes Baby where I'm from if it rains it snows When you're out there chasing something Running down your dreams and you've come so close You gotta stand up tall When you feel this small Take it off the chin and baby don't you fall Your hard work will prevail Just get out and give em hell, and take it all I will Carry You When things are getting rough I will make sure that I've got you and I'm giving you enough When the whole world feels so small and you're caught up in it all I'll Carry You Yesterday, seems far away It's always gonna feel that fucking way Don't worry about your past Or you ain't gonna last Another day. I will Carry You When things are getting rough I will make sure that I've got you and I'm giving you enough When the whole world feels so small and you're caught up in it all I'll Carry You Take me home Or let me go Circumstances say our chances are getting low. I will Carry You When things are getting rough I will make sure that I've got you and I'm giving you enough When the whole world feels so small and you're caught up in it all I'll Carry You

Morning fog on the glowing horizon so tantalizing Got your hands in mine, little candlelight surprise and the heat is rising high now. Phone numbers on the bathroom stall… Cold comfort in the bedroom hall, make ya shiverrrrr… Make you quiver to see what I’ll deliver. I can see it burning in your eyes The kind of fire that you cant disguise, where the heat burns through, The beat grabs you and my feet rush to…(to make you all mine) Sweat dripping from small of your back Head spinning like a vinyl track, make ya shiverrrrr… Make you quiver to see what I’ll deliver. (and I’ll deliver…) Let me paint you a picture. (one with all the stars and the cars in it…) I can make you a winner…drive me wild Out of all the things I know that I can prove, I wanna see what you can do, I wanna love the way you do. Mesmerized by the look in your eyes, girl you hypnotize me. You got your plans in mind but ya can’t decide if I, will be the man that your heart desires so.. You keep putting me on and keep pretending its wrong but my heart can’t live without you, (get lost in song as the heart beats on) Just like I do! Let me paint you a picture. (one with all the stars and the cars in it…) I can make you a winner…drive me wild Out of all the things I know that I can prove, I wanna see what you can do, I wanna love the way you do.

Two Rivers 03:51
If the stars don't all align When I cross that Georgia line I'll take all I can find Don't ya know. Give me back my point of view I haven't seen you in a week or two If it all just came unglued I know you'd be fine. This is why I never call you on the telephone This is why I don't feel bad when you're all alone This is why I never run, when you always insist to hide. This is how I got in trouble in the first place This is now and I'm prepared for the worst days This is why I don't allow someone else to decide So if you want me, don't call me I'm on the road If you need me, don't call me We're on our own If the starts don't all align for you Then the sun will someday shine for you This is all I know We're Two Rivers running wild It's all a big mystery Who we are and who we're gonna be It finally dawned on me to let it go

Sinners 03:13
It was a late night and I woke in the morning with a little bit of buzz in my head I had to hold tight cuz she came with no warning, but a whole lot of fire instead I had a 30 second limit My heart wasn't in it However you want to spin it Make it rain You see that whiskey on the shelf It ain't gonna drink itself And tonight I won't be feeling any pain Feeling no pain You know I did it all for you baby This you must have to know I think its time that I did it ion my own I may live a little harder Never raised a glass to something bad I laugh with the sinners their the only friends I've had When I came to: your hands on my shoulders, you were looking me right dead in my face It was just as I dreamed, where nothings as it seems your shit was all over the place Ya well I dont even know If I'm gonna go Take any one you know Pick 'em eenie miney mo Here's a quarter for your bro A 20 for your bro You cant get past if your taking it fast, your only gonna last if your taking it slow. You know I did it all for you baby This you must have to know I think its time that I did it ion my own I may live a little harder Never raised a glass to something bad I laugh with the sinners their the only friends I've had

Friends 03:58
You said you've been on the block before Well I've been around it twice, or more It doesn't make a difference through whose eyes we see The answers lie in the cool calm breeze Whistling through the shady trees There's nothing like keeping steady company You were far too little for another man You're far too much for me The empty opera for my symphony I held you close Then I let you down Pulled you in tight again Running around not knowing where I fit in Friends 'til the end. Now I've broken down a lot of doors Traveled the world I took it by the horns In some shape or form you were always by my side Many good times have passed us by Many we stare straight in the eye Sharing a laugh when there's no good reason to cry. You were far too little for another man You're far too much for me The empty opera for my symphony I held you close Then I let you down Pulled you in tight again Running around not knowing where I fit in Friends 'til the end You were far too little for another man You're far too much for me The empty opera for my symphony I held you close Then I let you down Pulled you in tight again Running around not knowing where I fit in Friends 'til the end Friends 'til the end Friends 'til the end Friends 'til the end

Nobody Cares 02:35
When you get yourself ahead in life and....(Nobody Cares) When you're thinking that you have the right but... When you are the change you wish to see and... Its like damn, Nobody Cares When I was just a little lad I never knew the good from bad I acted like I was a tad, better than the rest The people that I hung around And me we had our ups and downs Let alone we weren't profound Life is just a test, ain't it? When you get yourself ahead in life and....(Nobody Cares) When you're thinking that you have the right but... When you are the change you wish to see and... Its like damn, Nobody Cares Now where do we go from here Haven't seen a person in a God damned year It's insane to complain When we get a little rain But we can't be living our lives in fear Break it down When you get yourself ahead in life and....(Nobody Cares) When you're thinking that you have the right but... When you are the change you wish to see and... Its like damn, Nobody Cares When you get yourself ahead in life and....(Nobody Cares) When you're thinking that you have the right but... When you are the change you wish to see and... Its like damn, Nobody Cares

Who Are We 03:13
Travelling on my road Life wasn't always gold The climb to the top can be long The fall to the grounds always short...yeah When time's just moving too slow Heaven's no place to want to go Systematic control Your not alone, we all wrote this song Awhile ago It's not your first damn time man it ain't your last Feels like your spinning your God damned tires on broken glass Our windows will close up quick if we don't act fast Who Are We to complain about the past? Thinking about all I know Trying to forget all that I wrote While keeping it fresh in my mind Without forfeiting all that's behind me...uh huh. When time's just moving too slow Heaven's no place to want to go Systematic control Your not alone, we all wrote this song Awhile ago It's not your first damn time man it ain't your last Feels like your spinning your God damned tires on broken glass Our windows will close up quick if we don't act fast Who Are We to complain about the past? It's not your first damn time man it ain't your last Feels like your spinning your God damned tires on broken glass Our windows will close up quick if we don't act fast Who Are We to complain You're never the type to complain Who Are We to complain?
