Track Name: New Guns
You know how to dig when you’re searching for gold
You know how to pray when you’ve lost all hope
You know how to move when we’re moving too slow
There’s no telling how it’s gonna go

Because I can’t tell when you’re up or you’re down
When you’re feeling alright, if I’m staying the night
There’s no telling when you’re feeling low
Darling, how should I know?

Do you feel it? I know, I feel it too
The uncomfortable rise of the new you
The new me, oh this is what I see
Oh this is what I need to be

It’s the end of the year, and I don’t carry that gun no more

You know how to pry when the door is closed
You know how to lie like the color of the clouds in the sky
Just enough to get your way
Just enough for me to stay

Because I can’t tell when you’re up or you’re down
When you’re feeling alright, if I’m staying the night
There’s no telling when you’re feeling low
Darling, how should I know?

Do you feel it? I know, I feel it too
The uncomfortable rise of the new you
The new me, oh this is what I see
Oh this is what I need to be

It’s the end of the year, and I don’t carry that gun no more
Track Name: Lady Loose
Oh lady so loose
I know you hate that word
But every time you hear it I see your head turn
Put on your mask
So no one knows your face
But don’t go wondering why no one knows your name

Oh lady so small
Go ‘head and bat them eyes
But know that dancing alone in the corner ain’t no disguise
I’ve drawn out the line
Black powder so thin
Oh you can say I love you all you want, I’m not letting you in

Oh lady so dark
Oh lady so thin
Oh lady so skeletal
I’m not letting you in
Oh you can twist your tongue all you want
I’m not letting you in

You’ve got no disguise
And I’ve got your prize
I’m not lettin' you in

Ain’t this a sad song, ain’t it?
Ain’t this a sad song, ain’t it?
Ain’t this a sad song, oh lady so loose
Track Name: Refrigerator Magnets
Magnets:

her teeth was stained but
her heart was pure darling
oh she's lookin' better after
every beer I haven't gone

if the phone don't ring
you'll know it's me oh no
she's acting single and I'm
drinking doubles ? if love
were oil I'd be a quart low
I liked you better before

? when I say I love you
when you know I've been
a liar all my life I changed
Track Name: Salt
They used to say I was a traveler
Giving myself to my friends
They used to say I was a sinner
Lies from beginning to end

Promise you’ll forgive me tomorrow
Because I just can’t bear the end
I’ll buy you a drink, just let me borrow
Your body tonight, let’s pretend

Let’s pretend, lover of mine
Hold my hand, don’t leave me behind
Darlin' keep up, each step in time
Or else I will leave you behind

My god what a mess, can we agree to forget?
I swear you’re not a bother, you’re never a bother

My god what a mess, can we agree to forget?
I swear you’re not a bother, ‘til I decide
Oh please, believe, I need you to see
I swear you’re not a bother, ‘til I decide

Let’s pretend, lover of mine
Hold my hand, don’t leave me behind
Heal my wounds, tell me I’m fine
Or else I will leave you behind

Salt all the graves of all the men who caved
Slowly setting up what we knew was an end

Salt all the graves of all of the men who caved
Slowly settin up what we knew was an end
Slowly coverin up all my old friends

Let’s pretend, lover of mine
Let us stand tall and face our demise
Dear if we’re lucky, we’ll be surprised
Let’s pray for a little rain, oh

Oh pretend, lover of mine
Let us stand tall and face our demise
And dear if we’re lucky, we’ll be surprised
And it’ll rain, it will rain and wash it away

Let’s wash it away
Track Name: Flower Moon
Sunflowers up to your second floor window
There’s so much life outside for you to ignore
It’s time to pack and move away
It's time to stare at my television in a new place

Stargazers, covered in baby's breath,
Wilting away in your kitchen
You moved to the mountains, where it’s hard to breathe
That high altitude won’t get you closer to your god

I stood under your Flower Moon and waited for it to fall on me.

It gets strange finding yourself so lost
Even stranger with three sixes on your cross

I’m the poster child for naive
The patron saint of all you hate
Track Name: Dreamer
Dreamer, walk away from here
From all the ones you hold so dear
Towards your five year fucking plan
Towards mistakes you have to have

Take the arrow, point it straight
At this one you love to hate
But take a lesson from me, love
I never was the one

Apple of your eye, aim a little more to the right
Apple of my eye, aim a little more to the right
I’m afraid of standing still

Feel the loss in your lungs,
as your fingers tug, tug
Feel the pressure in your mind,
as your heartbeat drives, drives

Do you ever lie on the road
Wondering if it’s your time to go?
Momma said don’t play with guns
Sometimes we just need some fun

Apple of your eye, aim a little more to the right
Apple of my eye, aim a little more to the right
I’m afraid of standing still

Honey pie, here’s a law
You can’t have everything you want
Sweet heart, now’s the time
We’ve already drawn the line

Pull back hard, let go mean
I’ll pray the arrow misses me

Open up your eyes, steady breath
Darlin', the fun hasn’t started yet


I'm afraid of standing still
Track Name: Ah!Pathetic
What’s the opposite of amorous?
I need an antonym for amorous
What’s another word for not giving a shit?

I can’t believe all of those love songs, how could I ever feel that way?
Just high on chemicals that came from in and outside of my brain
I thought you were kidding when you said “things are changing for the best”
‘cause it’s hard to feel so blessed when looking through your own shit lens
Down the road to god knows where you said at least a hundred times
“You are loved. You are winning. You are mine”
You lied

My neighbor is drunk out in the street, cutting up women in his dreams
I feel bad and then ignore it. I let my diseases speak for me. Just like him
(we’re all like him)
We may not all find our means, but we will surely find our ends
It’s hard to feel so cleansed when looking through your own shit lens
Across the bridge to god knows where it reads at least a hundred times
“it’s fine. it’s fine. it’s fine. it’s fine….”
That bridge lied

We don’t move the way we used to.
Track Name: Presser
Hold me down, hold me down
Add a stone, and press me down
I’d rather drown, I’d rather drown

Tie me up, take my crown
Turn my face to the crowd
I’d rather drown, I’d rather drown

Burn me down, burn me down
Burn my whore house to the ground
Take my ashes to the sea, so my spirit may be free

Because the sea and me know how to breathe in harmony
You cannot take me down, I’ll never drown

Cut me up, spread me out
These dirty dogs have found me out
No you’re not safe in your dreams
I haunt incessantly

My favorite game is hide and seek
And you will meet me in your sleep
Snakes crowd around your feet
No one will hear your screams

My spirit wakes, my spirit wakes
And in the night you’ll scratch and shake
And I will meet you when you rise
I’m the twitch behind your eyes

Because the sea and me know how to breathe in harmony
You cannot take me down, I’ll never drown
Track Name: Rock n Roll
Oh, we’ve been on these tires too long
burning them up ’til they’re gone
and we’re riding on only our wheels

The road that we’re on seems endless
You wish it were level and well lit
But everything just keeps looking worse

No, I can’t speak for you
But I’m tired of running on fumes
We all break down eventually

You’re walking on broken legs
with crutches made from bottles and kegs
so you don’t leave your bed much these days

There’s a memory stuck in your head
That you’re trying your best to forget
saying to yourself “it’ll never be that good again”

And the song that was on it was perfect
but never again have you heard it
you still catch yourself humming along in your head

So when they’re finally calling you home
and it’s the first time you don’t want to go
because there’s still so much you don’t know..

just rock n roll
