Pray 04:51
Take me under darlin' Don't listen to the words I say Take cover darlin' Don't covet anything today Ya' need more ya' need more ya' need more That's why I need just a little of a lot of it I got a feeling that I cannot live inside of this brain That's why I need just a little of a lot of it I got a feeling that I cannot paint inside of this frame You said you'd pray You said you pray I walk into the room Check my lungs at the door Between these four walls There ain't no breathing room in store I need more I need more I need more That's why I need just a little of a lot of it I got a feeling that I cannot live inside of this brain That's why I need just a little of a lot of it I got a feeling that I cannot paint inside of this frame You said you'd pray You said you pray That's why I need just a little of a lot of it I got a feeling that I cannot live inside of this brain That's why I need just a little of a lot of it I got a feeling that I cannot paint inside of this frame You said you'd pray You said you pray

Piano Bench 03:07
(There is nothing ulterior in our motives, nothing at all. You will discover this for yourself before too long) You're comin' home to your belongings gone, smell of theavin' on your front lawn Take a second to notice how quick they got away You're feeling me from across the road, I swear I was just mindin' my own You don't know me But you think I'm to blame All I can say in my defense is "I was just sittin' on my piano bench" They say I rifled through the woman's purse, sold her things for rocks and dirt That might be the truth but you've got no proof of the crime What was lost was never found, put your pointin' fingers down You don't know me But you think I'm to blame All I can say in my defense is "I was just sittin' on my piano bench" Piano bench She says I stole her heart, your honor she gave it to me from the start Her eyes shot to the ceiling, but the words I spoke I was feelin' All the landlocked times we shared, loving looks, hateful glares You know me You know I'm to blame All I can say in my defense is "I was just sittin' on my piano bench" Piano Bench

Fell asleep about an hour ago But I'm up now Some bury there dreams up the road Near the playground So won't you So won't you come outside Come outside and I'll lead you blind Screamin' "When it goes bad, let me know" Say I got too many things But they're all green If I die with diamond rings I'll lay comfortably 6 feet 6 feet deeper than the sea Fuck that mentality Screamin' "When it goes bad, let me know" One for the money and two for the show We're gonna make it downtown We got one for the money and two for the show We're gonna make it downtown Three for all the things I was born to believe and four for what I used to be We got one for the money and two for the show We're gonna make it downtown We got one for the money and two for the show We're gonna make it downtown Three for all the things I was born to believe and four for what I used to be I might have to show ya' When it goes bad, let me know

Reminisce 04:31
Left with only scrap piece of paper Watch them tumble they fumble For a safe worde For something you can't reach with a wall of hands Choice, she is a concept We cannot grasp Illusion has a way of bein' misunderstood Misunderstood allusion to nothing true, nothing good And if you can dance then you'll be just fine If you can run then go There is no time to hid Alright, Now I'm only breathing just for the fun Same with him and her grandaughters and their grandsons Say you're lookin' for divine purpose it cannot be found Truer purpose is to stop lookin' around Ain't it funny how much time goes to waste Reminiscing on times That have gone away I swear I could reminisce in the song all night So take a chair and listen as I try

Good At 02:50
If all lost virtue could speak Would it call home to me Would I let it ring Would you just let the phone ring So tie all that's untied Ragged loose ends leaving me blind As I waste my breath on the cigarettes All the time I spent wasn't worth a cent So when you die make sure you die For something you're good at She stole the light of day In fields of grey she plays keep away While we slept under the hay While we all slept under her haze She revered at all she could see With what she can't keep She'll play hide n' seek While she wastes her breath on the cigarettes All the time she spent wasn't worth a cent So when you make her cry, make sure she cries For something you're good at So call all who should be called Worried young one The truth will soon resolve While we waste our breath on the cigarettes All the time we spent wasn't worth a cent So when you learn make sure you learn Something you shouldn't have

Satisfy You 03:12
Let's just talk for the moment Before the leaves drop Before you're goin' The time I spent; tryna find you The love I got; now behind you If only I; could remind you Maybe that would make you wanna stop I want to satisfy you You want to turn a blind eye I want to satisfy you You want to leave me behind My heart don't lie with the west or east Anything inbetween My heart lies with you girl and the comfort that you bring Heart don't lie with the west or east Anything inbetween Heart lies with you girl Inbetween these sheets 'Cause girl it's just you and me I want to satisfy you You want to turn a blind eye I want to satisfy you You want to leave me behind Still not tired you are sighin' Still not tired You are lyin' Still not tired You are desire Still not tired You are My fiiiiireee I want to satisfy you Turn you round girl and justify you I want to testify you Look at me darlin' as I remind you I want to satisfy you You want to turn a blind eye I want to satisfy you You want to leave me behind

Tremors 04:23
I've wheeled on pavement In cities misleading Same streets I've lived on I took a beating Will these tremors come for me again And they stay closer than any friend Well I've cracked so I'll gasp one more line These tremors come right on time So I check my breathing I brush off those demons I lost the wager And lost half these feelings Will these tremors come for me again And they stay closer than any friend Well I've cracked so I'll gasp one more line These tremors come Through love, and lust And time, and trust Through gates and fate and God And dust That settles on the ones you love Through grace and pain and God And trust Will these tremors come for me again And they stay closer than any friend Well I've cracked so I'll gasp one more line These tremors come right on time

So how do ya' How does it feel? They tell me to feel fine So how do ya' Yes how does it feel to finally feel like You're the smallest thing in here Your hopes lay beneath Just a mean for the means for the queen to feed Work yourself into the dirt Slip yourself some better dreams Now we pray you die free End on that row And so it goes the board only bows End on that row Some bleed for it I heard screams When it gets worse So how do ya' So how does it feel? They tell me to feel slight So how do ya' Yes how does it feel to finally know why It's not black or white It's not take me alive or leave me for dead Say it It's not black or white Been conditioned to buy and try and lie End on that row And so it goes the board only bows End on that row Some bleed for it I heard screams When it gets worse It's not black or white It's not take me alive or leave me for dead Say it It's not black or white I just came with a knife To kill me some time. Watch me

Name 04:25
It started early, it happened quick I felt this way on no specific day and I felt it since We'll catch like fire, they'll fall like rain Felt small in the space up above While below me started shake Raised by young and aged You think they had faith Maybe, probably 'Least one gave me my name The grass is greener, the money is too That only yields concern from the jealous ends of fools The highway is dark, what lies ahead don't have to be I've made it my bitter-sweet purpose To forge a light that we can see Through unpromised grace You think I'm insane Maybe, probably One day you might know my name Know my name It started early, it happened quick Through unpromised grace You think we can lay claim Maybe, probably One day you'll know our name Know our name
