Track Name: Pray
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
Track Name: Piano Bench
(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
Track Name: When It Goes Bad
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
Track Name: Reminisce
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
Track Name: Good At
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
Track Name: Satisfy You
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
Track Name: Tremors
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
Track Name: When It Gets Worse
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
Track Name: Name
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
