Track Name: Don't You
Don’t you
Wake up early in the evening
Don’t you
Put your ashes in the sink
_

Don’t you see that I can’t break it
Take some time and learn to shake it
Don’t you
Don’t you
_

Won’t you
Let the cold moon light my door
Won’t you
Put the rhythm on the floor
_

Won’t you chain me to my bed
So I can kick what’s in my head
Won’t you
Don’t You
_

Don’t you
Feel any pain
Don’t you
Laugh in the rain
Don’t you hear the words I’m saying
Won’t you sing the song I’m playing
Don’t you
Don’t you
_
Don’t you hear the words I’m saying
Won’t you sing the song I’m playing
Don’t you hear the words I’m saying
Won’t you sing the song I’m playing
Don’t you
Don’t you
Don’t you
Don’t you
Track Name: Like Your Brother
Little traits that make you, you
Are like the glue
That makes us the same
We didn’t ask or choose
Stings like a bruise
That we’re in it together
Pick me up when I’m falling down
We could own this town
And live it forever
_

Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother
Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother
_

We use to play in the poison ivy
Just to come out hivy
Mother called us in
We’d explore the kitchen floor
Just to find our way
Introduced in pair
As far back as we could care
Or even remember
_

Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother
Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother
_

Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother
Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother

Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother
Nobody knows you
Like your brother
Like your brother
Track Name: Golden State
There’s no water in this canteen
Can’t remember when my flat tops didn’t have these holes
It’s coming on November
Soon it’ll be December
And I might as well be sleeping on the north pole
_

So lets pretend we’re in the Golden State
That our eyes are open and it’s never too late
Watching the palm trees blow in the wind of Santa Ana
Break it down
Turn it around
Take me today
_

We could get lost on the pacific coast
Hideaway in a high desert saloon
Get lost in the sunset city
Til’ out faces were dirty and gritty
And we’re never going back to where we came from
_

So lets pretend we’re in the Golden State
That our eyes are open and it’s never too late
Watching the palm trees blow in the wind of Santa Ana
Break it down
Turn it around
Take me today
Break it down
Turn it around
Take me today

_
I was hoping you’d want to ride away with me
Never been much for new places on my own
Instincts in the right direction
And the interstate bares our reflection
And there’s nothing left to do but run away
_
So lets pretend we’re in the Golden State
That our eyes are open and it’s never too late
Watching the palm tree blow in the wind of Santa Ana
Break it down
Turn it around
Take me today
Break it down
Turn it around
Take me today
Break it down
Turn it around
Take me today
Track Name: BB Guns And Dirt Bikes
We were ridin’ out
With heads in the sky
We were ten and twelve and thirteen
We got BB guns and dirt bikes
And heads full of crowded dreams

We always won
In the hot suburban sun
We were kings of the west side track
These new kids over cross Slater Street
Comin’ on like a heart attack

[Chorus]
Mama says
Where are ya going?
And when will you be comin’ home?
With my brother and my memory
I’ll bring my history home

Sealed with piss and with pride
through the streets we would ride
Over cracks in the dirt and weeds
We’d best be home by suppertime
Just in time to craft a scheme

If you’ve got my back
Here’s the plan of attack
Listen up if you would boys please
We’ll hit these pussies ‘round midnight
And roll off like a band of thieves

[Chorus]

With quiverin’ eyes
And our fear in disguise
We gathered all that would burn in the breeze
We hit the asphalt howlin’ like hellfire
Had no time to get weak in the knees

Under the cover of night
When the timing was right
Like a furious army of three
We’d light up the sky like the fourth of July
And race home like it was a dream

And Mama yells
Where have ya been?
And where the hell are ya comin’ from?
With my brother and my memory
I’ll bring my victory home
With my brother and my memory
I’ll bring my history home
Track Name: Two Sides
There are two sides to every story
There are two of us
And I swear I did what was best for you
And if you’ll wait I’ll be running
Back to you
_

In the shadows of a cold winter night
I found the comfort of a passing stranger
I though I knew that it wasn’t right
I was glad that I met you
_

Cause there are two sides to every story
There are two of us
And I swear I did what was best for you
And if you’ll wait I’ll be running
Back to you
_

Ice on the window fog on the door
My voice found the key it was looking for
Hot dusty roads never seem to long
And why is what we’re doing so wrong
_

Smoky bar whiskey on your lips
Hold it tight but it always slips
Broken down beat up and tossed
Well I could be what you thought you’d lost
_

Well there are two sides to every story
There are two of us
And I swear I did what was best for you
And if you’ll wait I’ll be running
Back to you
Back to you
Back to you
Track Name: Going To Colorado
Split out of Utah with the law on my back
I got dirt under my fingernails my clothes in a sack
And the bones in my body are pointing me eastbound
_

Haven’t slept for a month
Haven’t showered for a week
The prospects in Mississippi were looking pretty bleak
I think I’ll try my luck with that green mountain high
_

So turn up Buck Owens
And turn down the light
Cause I’m going to Colorado tonight
_

Got my hipster killer packed up in the trunk
Listening to songs about sin
Sung by a drunk
The mud on the windshield never turned us around
_

Held my head up high as we crossed the state line
The bud mixed perfect with the alpine
And I could get use to this green mountain high

_

So turn up Buck Owens
And turn down the light
Cause I’m going to Colorado tonight
Track Name: John Will
John Will grew up on the green shores of Ireland
Over 260 years ago
But before he could be a man
Out of his country he soon ran
They didn’t like the way he believed in God
Sold into indentured servitude John set his sites
On the last place that he’d ever call home
Waves of the ocean he would ride
Be his family’s sweet pride
After ten years in an American coal mine
_

Oh John Will
Someday we’ll tell your story
Oh John Will
What you did made us who we are
_

With a shovel in his hand John pulled black coal from the land
He was a slave for ten long years
But when freedom broke his chains
John’s blood rushed through his veins
He could finally be the man that he wanted to be
So he took himself a wife
Bought him a patch of new world life
And he had himself a family
_

But shots echoed the ground at Lexington
Militiamen went door to door
So he signed his name to the Continental army
And with cold steel John went to war
_

Oh John Will
Someday we’ll tell your story
Oh John Will
What you did made us who we are
_

John fought hard in the battles for our independence
Spilled his blood on the soil of his new home
But overwhelmed by an all out attack
John found the devil at his back
Surrendered to the red coats in seventy seven
In Philadelphia he was held behind wall of brick and iron
His young wife would come to see him everyday
_
But John starved to death in that military prison
His family waiting close by
They were trying to break the spirit of the rebels
And they expected all of them to die
_

Oh John Will
Someday we’ll tell your story
Oh John Will
What you did made us who we are
_

John is buried in a common grave
Behind independence hall
The life that he lived with steep and it was bitter
But I’ll never forget the man that he was
Track Name: Round And Round
I count the bridges
And the mountain ridges
From mile to mile
Getting deep in the rhythm of the road
I can pull this load
Ten thousand miles
_

And I got the will
To find my destination
And I won’t hold still
Not while the wheels are on the pavement
_

See the headlights right behind me
Drawing circles in the ground
Gotta keep moving
Got to keep moving
Round and Round and Round and Round
_

The ground is moving fast
But never the last
Place I’ve been
Dream the way we see
And you will be
Just what you hoped for
_

You can live in fear
Or moving with the seasons
But I’ll stay constant
Just like lines on the horizon
_

See the headlights right behind me
Drawing circles in the ground
Gotta keep moving
Got to keep moving
Round and Round and Round and Round
_

See the headlights right behind me
Drawing circles in the ground
Gotta keep moving
Got to keep moving
Round and Round and Round and Round
Track Name: Wild Mustang
Wild Mustang
Get this saddle off my back
Wild Mustang
Hear my bones begin to crack
Take me right up
Let me ride you all day long
Oh take me right up
Let me ride you all day long
Wild Mustang
Get this saddle off my back
_
I did just what you wanted me to
You bruised me from my head to my shoe
I was holding out for a sign that never came
Dragging you up rocky trails
You’re a train that know no rails
I’m picking you up and putting you on track
_
Wild Mustang
Get this saddle off my back
Wild Mustang
Hear my bones begin to crack
Take me right up
Let me ride you all day long
Oh take me right up
Let me ride you all day long
Wild Mustang
Get this saddle off my back
_
We could be riding through some be old field
But instead everyday it’s your kicks I must shield
White in your eyes
Hooves up in the air
Do what you do and I’ll pretend I care
_
Hey
Wild Mustang
Get this saddle off my back
Wild Mustang
Hear my bones begin to crack
Take me right up
Let me ride you all day long
Oh take me right up
Let me ride you all day long
Wild Mustang
Get this saddle off my back
Wild Mustang
Get this saddle off my back
Track Name: You Can't Leave Here Like That
Local bar it was three AM
Threw me out on my face again
Stone steps hit me stair by stair
When I got up there was mud in my hair
Stumbled over just to lay in my car
Ten beers deep I didn’t get too far
Back on my back again
I hear that voice every now and then
_
You can’t leave here like that
Not while I’m the one that’s watching you
You can’t leave here like that
Lay on your side and shut your eyes
You’ll feel better in the morning
You’ll feel better in the morning
_
Woke up in a pile of junk
My head was pounding and my stomach sunk
The sun was high and bar was open
Black cup of coffee was all I was hoping
Light grew thin suds thickened my grass
It only took two to throw me out on my ass
Back on my back again
I hear that voice every now and then
_
You can’t leave here like that
Not while I’m the one that’s watching you
You can’t leave here like that
Lay on your side and shut your eyes
You’ll feel better in the morning
You’ll feel better in the morning
Track Name: In The Back Of Your Mind
Do what you do so we can like it
Comment day to day
Share to keep you honest
I’ll be your friend if you’ll be mine
_
Gimmie gimmie gimmie gimmie gimme
Gimmie gimmie gimmie gimmie gimme
Keep me
In the back of your mind
_
Post to keep us living
Tag to leave your mark
Insight to know your future
I’ll follow you if you’ll follow me
_
Gimmie gimmie gimmie gimmie gimme
Gimmie gimmie gimmie gimmie gimme
Keep me
In the back of your mind
_
Gimmie gimmie gimmie gimmie gimme
Gimmie gimmie gimmie gimmie gimme
Keep me
In the back of your mind
_
Track Name: Face To Face
Brother kick me out of bed
He crawls to his feet reluctantly
Wraps his body in the sheet with the cigarette holes
He’s a thousand miles from home
Bundle up it’s coming down hard outside
The cold will cut you like a dealer’s deck
He starts the car to start the race
And its never the time or the place
_
Oo I guess he’s stuck this way
Never listened to what they’d say
He goes place to place
But now he’s face to face
_
Slumped over tired in the back seat
Watching the trees go by at sixty-five
In the face of trouble you can’t tell a lie
Don’t the clouds look beautiful in the snowy sky
_
Oo I guess he’s stuck this way
Never listened to what they’d say
He goes place to place
But now he’s face to face
_
Even in agony he wouldn’t trade the open road
It’s the routine that keeps him prisoner
But now he’ll learn to take his luck with style and grace
Forever he’ll ware his life across his face
_
Oo I guess he’s stuck this way
Never listened to what they’d say
He goes place to place
But now he’s face to face
Track Name: Pain Blues
Wraps its hands around
Knocks me to my knees
Pulls me by my spine
Til’ I’m crying please
_

Crying please God
Please take away this agony
_

Take me to the doctor
But the doctor doesn’t know
You can’t walk you can’t run
Waiting for the final blow
They give you reds and white
Take your out of your head
They want to make you real comfortable
Right up until your dead
_

Crying please God
Please take away this agony
_

Couldn’t think about nothing
Pain torments your mind
Its full time employment
That you didn’t have to find
It’s with your sleeping
Wakes you up everyday
Watching every move
And every step you make
_
Crying please God
Please take away this agony
_

The bones in your body
Chew you up and spit you out
All of your confidence
Terrorizes you with doubt
You’ll beg for the water
But you’ll never get a drink
Til’ your drugged and you tired and you throw up in the sink
_

Crying please God
Please take away this agony
Track Name: The Only Way
Black as the sky
Bright like gold
How can you
Even hold
All the things that seem to let you down
_

Moving out pulling in
Coast to coast bet you’ve never been
Lights go up and gonna give it a try
All that’s left is just to say goodbye
_

The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
_
Backyard in the shade
All we knew was fun
Now it ways down on you
Like sixteen ton
All the things that seem to let you down
_
Stayin out callin in
Game to game you’re gonna scrape your shin
Heads go up and we shoot high
All that’s left is just to say goodbye
_
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
_
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
The only ways a lonely way
Don’t you know by now
