Lets share this together For just one night I love everything about you now When you turn down the light Well it doesn’t really matter Who is wrong and whats right Cause I love everything about you now When you turn down the light __ Keepin’ my head above water My heart pays the debt But I’m drowning now In a river of regret Well I’ve been looking at myself And its bringing me down The night I stole from you Follows me around town __ Lets share this together For just one night I love everything about you now When you turn down the light Well it doesn’t really matter Who is wrong and whats right Cause I love everything about you now When you turn down the light __ When I look at you I see my desire I’m sick of pretending Knowing myself as a liar I know what I want What I want is you But I know when I see you We’ll say goodbye like we do __ Lets share this together For just one night I love everything about you now When you turn down the light Well it doesn’t really matter Who is wrong and whats right Cause I love everything about you now When you turn down the light __ Well your lookin’ so fine When you don’t think so I love every little part of you From high to low Well the way that you smile Makes me forget my own name If I ever let you pass by I’d never be the same __ Lets share this together For just one night I love everything about you now When you turn down the light Well it doesn’t really matter Who is wrong and whats right Cause I love everything about you now When you turn down the light Yes, I love everything about you now When you turn down the light Yes, I love everything about you now When you turn down the light

Creek Bed 03:09
Whats that you see down at the creek bed Whats that you see down at the creek bed It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red __ Stop what you’re doing and follow me I want to show you something you’ve never see Eyes are poppin’ wide cause I told you so Down up from the mountain Got you runnin’ low __ Whats that you see down at the creek bed Whats that you see down at the creek bed __ Fishes don’t swim with the current no more You won’t see the water runnin’ when you count to four One, two, three believe I’m losing track Turn around, crack a back, double back back __ Whats that you see down at the creek bed Whats that you see down at the creek bed It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red __ Whats that you see down at the creek bed Whats that you see down at the creek bed __ Kitty cat hunting in the hills at night Won’t tell you when he’s coming Gonna eat you on site Follow the red where the color don’t shout Mixin with the run off in the middle of a drought __ Whats that you see down at the creek bed Whats that you see down at the creek bed It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white When its a runnin’ a red runnin’ a white runnin’ a red runnin’ a white runnin’ a red Whats that you see down at the creek bed Whats that you see down at the creek bed It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red It should be runnin’ a white when its a runnin’ a red

Second Son 03:54
I’m disappointed that you feel that way You’re losing out on half your life Shut your ears to what they’re telling you They’re not keeping you in mind So wrapped up in what you want to be Everything you want I see __ You are the second son You are the second son __ Time has put you where you’re suppose to be It won’t take long to understand So much stronger then you think you are No more stopping once you stand I don’t think that you trust yourself Don’t deny what you can be __ You are the second son You are the second son You are the second son You are the second son __ Some of us are born with nothing Most of us don’t follow what you lead What you have is called a privilege Share all you can with those in need Why hold out for what in front of you Look to the sky to see your reach __ You are the second son You are the second son You are the second son You are the second son You are the second son You are the second son

City King 04:06
I only work for you My city king I only work for you My city king my city king __ Work me down easy Don’t you pay me no dime Work me down easy Don’t you pay me no dime Well you promised me fifty dollars But you screw me all the time Well I broke my back Hauling up your stair Well I broke my back Hauling up your stair While you were sipping Sweet bourbon in an easy chair __ I only work for you My city king I only work for you My city king my city king __ If I don’t take your job They’re lining up around the block If I don’t take your job They’re lining up around the block Well you could crush me Just like a boulder crush a rock Well there’s only one way And you hold the door Well there’s only one way And you hold the door Stand up to you And you’ll knock me to the floor __ I only work for you My city king I only work for you My city king, my city king, my city king, my city king

I wasn’t born a criminal But I became a ward of the state In and out of a cement cage Behind the lock of a barb wire gate When I saw my chance To do more then sit in line Push myself to be someone And find whats really mine __ Cause I’m Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah __ I learned to trust myself With a chainsaw in my hand Not to kill but protect Holding the line in the land Got to learn what makes me tough I carry myself just fine My heart beats like the fire roars Its never enough But I know its a sign __ Cause I’m Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah __ Three AM a smokey haze Said the flick of a cigarette started the blaze Burning now it jumped the canyon Burning now it jumped the road Burning now I’m on my way Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah __ Food and water just incase We’re surrounded by the flame Pile into the truck tonight What we’ll see will make training look tame A dollar an hour makes nine If I ever get out of here I’m gonna make that dollar shine __ Cause I’m Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah

Tell me the truth Tell me what you want to hear You’re gonna feel so much better When you’re mind is clear They want to chain you up forever I’m all you got Spin the wheel in my game Or stay here till’ you rot __ Things are looking grim __ Tell me one more time Who and what you saw There’s an easy way I’d like to help But you broke the law You did it And I understand your motivation Let me hear it in your words So you can leave the station __ Things are looking grim But I can make it so much better __ Confess to me Confess to me Confess to me __ You’re free to go As soon as your lips move the way I like Say that again a little closer to the mic Don’t call a friend, don’t call for help I’m on your side You may get the chance to walk But you’ll never hide __ Things are looking grim But I can make it so much worse __ Confess to me Confess to me Confess to me Confess to me Confess to me Confess to me

Grew up hot and crowded Brothers and sisters of his own Chop that oak Cook them ribs Nothing he couldn’t do if he was shown Ten seasons low and slow Before he come up tall Two parts mean, two parts tough Fist for a mid day brawl _ He’s a barrelhouse boy He don’t get mad he gets mella He’s a barrelhouse boy Don’t you mess with that fella _ He likes to see the sunrise After a long night awake Never thought much of the mid-day But he’ll get what he can take Eats them ghost peppers On his back porch in the dark Face turns red, tough turns hot He has to hide to growl and bark _ He’s a barrelhouse boy He don’t get mad he gets mella He’s a barrelhouse boy Don’t you mess with that fella _ Always getting what he’s after He’s got his midnight make Blue notes hands together Shaking like an earthquake Holler in the field Yelling in the barrelhouse But when he sings them songs Even you can hear a mouse _ He’s a barrelhouse boy He don’t get mad he gets mella He’s a barrelhouse boy Don’t you mess with that fella _ He’s a barrelhouse boy He don’t get mad he gets mella He’s a barrelhouse boy Don’t you mess with that fella Don’t you mess with that fella Don’t you mess with that fella Don’t you mess with that fella

Heartbeat 04:50
Quiet in the kitchen Stove is cooling down The grease I ate for dinner I’m going to wear it like a crown Push open my window pane Take a breath outside The gutters over flowing Its going to take me for a ride Pull back from the sill Rain drops from my hair From my chest to my finger tips Its got me gasping for air _ I can feel my heartbeat Chasing after me Chasing after me _ Watch the water boil in the kettle Then you pour it over the leaves The woman on the television Is always crying when she grieves Sippin bullets As I stare down at the screen Hoping the characters will come out and grab me I’m getting tired of this scene _ I can feel my heartbeat Chasing after me Chasing after me I can feel my heartbeat Chasing after me Chasing after me Its going to catch me Someday I’m sure _ People keep telling me that I’m crazy When I look at the facts I have to agree But sometimes the truth seems hazy It’s just one more step in front of me _ Riding the big hand All the way down through my veins Caught between a tightening grip And throwing down the reins I’m now as old as the other When he gave into the smother And said goodbye to his mother And all of us for good _ I can feel my heartbeat Chasing after me Chasing after me I can feel my heartbeat Chasing after me Chasing after me Its going to catch me Someday I’m sure

I can’t begin to know How to talk in a crowd You work in the city where the trains run real loud My glass is empty but my mouth is dry Show me what you got and I’ll give it a try All night long I can hear it in your tone _ I’m on my own I’m on my own _ Tell me a story And I’ll ask you all the right things You’ve always wanted a dog And a bird that sings You dream at the top But you work at the bottom You don’t hold the keys But you know whose got em I’d call you tomorrow But you don’t have a phone _ I’m on my own I’m on my own On my own _ I think I’ll get myself a drink I think I’ll get myself a drink _ Tell me again how You’re an expert in everything I do A beginner cook And seasoned critic too You don’t go out but you’re standing next to me Thought I knew the price But I didn’t know the fee You can’t be told But you can be shown _ I’m on my own I’m on my own I’m on my own I’m on my own On my own

Main Street 05:24
Downtown diner opens every single day You’ll be there its the only game in town You walk three blocks You’ve seen all there is to see What else were you looking for New stop light Down on the corner But you don’t worry You know all the cops in town by name Just enough to do Watching the seasons pass us by Oh we love it when they hang those lights On main street For the holiday parade _ Travel the road Stop in the places Lost in crowd One of the faces High on the mountain I’ve seen you before I’m coming home late Please, don’t lock the door _ Not much has changed In forty fifty sixty years Except the streets were much busier back then ‘Specially when the rail cars use to come through town But that was a long, long time ago When the big road came It took the center from the city And it left us All this shell we call home We call home Home _ Travel the road Stop in the places Lost in crowd One of the faces High on the mountain I’ve seen you before I’m coming home late Please, don’t lock the door _ Your baby she’s a hiker and a hunter She’ll work hard to never let you down At nights she walks between those old rail tracks But not too late She works early in the morning The two of you think about leaving all the time But you’ll stay Like your mother’s, father’s, grandfathers Before you You _ But you travel the road Stop in the places Lost in crowd One of the faces High on the mountain I’ve seen you before I’m coming home late Please, don’t lock the door Don’t lock the door

Walking through the canyons in the middle of the day Search for a new place where we can play Out since the morning with my old bud Shirt stained brown with the mountain mud Gonna stay out late till the sky turns dark Hacking through the brush Gonna make out mark _ Racing to the edge of our world In my backyard In my back, yard _ Firecrackers in our pockets of the road we crawl Blew the hell out of my sisters china doll Tumble through the brush till we stink like sage Tried trapping raccoons in a makeshift cage Follow the creek till it turns to the sea Run to the water like a Derby Grand Prix _ Racing to the edge of our world In my backyard In my back, yard _ Grew up in a hurry And we left that place Chasing high raises in a hurried race No more bruises on my knees or ticks in my hair Just a visit in the winter with a cheap bus fare Haven’t seen my friend in a year or two But I’ll never forget the mud Or the things we’d do _ Racing to the edge of our world In my backyard In my back, yard
