Track Name: Kentucky Snow
You should call in sick today
tell 'em you ain't been feeling great.
Hang up your phone and pack your bags full of clean clothes.
…You know with me they won't be clean for long.

I gotta plan to take us outta here
hit the road and we'll just steer.
I don't think of much girl, that's the best /i can do dear.
All my friend in NYC all say we can stay for free.

It doesn't matter in the end
As long as it's just you and me
When it's just you and me.

Cuz these are the days.
These are the days you should remember
oh cuz you see the brighter side of things
in a world thats covered in grey
and i got you every single day.
You will see the beauty in this world.
Ill be running around.
I got darkness surrounding me
You see through me,

I swear when this weather breaks
Ill drive you up to the big great lakes
with a bucket of coins to pay the tolls.
Ill drive with your feet hanging out the window.
It's like we're young again…

Stop along and see grandpa joe
he's just south of Ohio.
He's making wine from Kentucky snow.
It's the best you ever tasted…
It's like we're kids again…

And I'll hide out behind some trees
you'll scream out, "You're scaring me!"
And I tackle you to the ground, now we're laughing
Cuz no one is around…
It's just you and me.

These are the days…
Track Name: 12:34
12:34 was your favorite time
cause it read 1.2.3.4
All I can say about 12:34
is I see it more than before

Loose is the life that you wanted to live
Loose is where it fell off
It's tightly wound and roughly torn
and after August falls the cold.

I turn you on and I turn you up
Two times a day you're around
You know late July will be far away from sping,
spring will bring the life back again.

12:34 doesn't mean much anymore,
except that it's a little past noon.
Track Name: The Way It Goes
There's a young man down the hall,
he's sleeping with his jawbone broken, its busted wide open.
Taking a swing at the world it done knocked him on the ground.
Now he's sleeping in his bed all alone.

But every now and then when he wants you as a friend,
you come running right by his side.
Might be ashamed to say you know, you'll be on your way you know.
Holding that little boy's hand…

And on the way up they will all fill your cup.
That's the way it goes.
And when you fall down they'll be reaching out with their frowns,
That's the way it goes.
There's always someone saying you won't belong.
That's the way it goes.

Just look them in the eyes and tell them what you are.
That's the way it goes.


That man up on the wall, you don't know him at all.
He's responsible for all you're gonna know.
There will come a day someone's gonna tear him off the wall.
I hope you're the one that's gonna say, "What's the deal here?!"

Cuz every now and then when this world falls to an end,
I promise I'll hold you tight.
Might be ashamed to say that the world's that way, you know.
No, my life's a little journey…

And on the way up they will all fill your cup.
That's the way it goes.
And when you fall down they'll be reaching out with their frowns,
That's the way it goes.
There's always someone saying you won't belong.
That's the way it goes.

Just look them in the eyes and tell them what you are.
That's the way it goes.
Track Name: Favorite Band
We used to be little kids
running around, falling in love.
You're my first, won't be my last.
Never forget the days of walking on broken glass.

And I'm so weak in every meaning of the words.
Can't hold a feather in my hand.
Watch this world crumble all around me while you're standing strong.
Why should you think of me?

That shoulda been me.
That could be us.
Pick out the names and I swear I'll fix your leaky sink
and let out our dog.
We'll find a sitter for tonight,
cause you know our favorite band is in town.

Saw you leaving that day in a juvenile way.
I guess you never wanna hear it - I'd be wasting all my breathe.
Cause I know I can trust you but I chose to push you away.
And I pushed you away…
So goodbye - see you around never.
Cause you know I've been broken, ain't hurting myself again.
Goodbye - see you around never.
Cause I don't wanna hurt.

That shoulda been me.
That could be us.
Pick out the names and I swear I'll fix your leaky sink
and let out our dog.
We'll find a sitter for tonight,
cause you know our favorite band is in town.

You're making weak when I want to be strong.
Making me stay when I'd rather be gone.
And all the blind men can stare straight through you..
You always left it there - as cold as stone.

You're making weak when I want to be strong.
You're making me stay when life is moving along.
And all the blind men can stare straight through you..
You always left it there - as cold as stone.

As cold as stone.
Track Name: Soy Beans
¿Qué hacer con tu vida?
Nada mi amigo.
What's been making you smile?
We haven't spoken for a while.

How many days has it been?
Too many I must say.
Please forgive me, you understand…
Caught up in this day to day
into days into days gone by.

Still I wander a lot.
Still I wander a lot.
And I take my coffee black as the night falls.
Pick up the sweetness along the way.

Yo bebo whisky on the weekdays.
I sleep where I rest my head.
One thing the world has taught me
is that you must not listen to what they say…
Word will fall to the ground.
must not listen to what they say…
You must make your own way.

My daddy would have like you,
there will always be shame.
I rest well in knowing we are living out their names.

Still I wander a lot.
Still I wander a lot.
And I take my coffee black as the night falls.
Pick up the sweetness along the way.

Every meeting has an ending,
as hard as we try, I get so awkward at goodbyes.

oh goodbye, goodbye, goodbye my old friend.

What you doing with your days?
I'm doing nothing with mine.
What's been making you smile?
We haven't spoken for a while.
Track Name: Apocalypse
It's like the world took a brush
and threw it in the air.
I'd saw the lord painted you with the devils hair.

I say a little prayer
Run my fingers through your hair.
And if the world ended there
I wouldn't care.

I'll be checkin' out your @$$
Still be thinking' bout your mind.
During the apocalypse
you might find me staring at your hips
I don't think the man who made you would mind,
he made you fine.
You should just shine baby!

That's my bitty
lord ain't she pretty.
I get lost
she gets me found.
I know that she knows her way around.

Often dreaming of a place,
filled up with nothin' but space.
Hanging my clothes out on your line
in the summertime.

It's getting hot outside,
and I never did mind having to strip you down
and get bare.

That's my bitty
lord ain't she pretty.
I get lost
she gets me found.
I know that she knows her way around.
Track Name: Old Pair Of Shoes
I feel restricted today,
like something's in my way.
It's like I am wasting my days
and I haven't even tried.

Cause I feel a crisis coming on.
I feel I can stay up and just pray all night,
asking God for solutions to secrets he only knows.
Lord if you tell me, I won't tell a soul.

I want to know, where do we go?
Track Name: Singin' This Town To Sleep
I'm singing this town to sleep.
I'm the only one who's up right now.
Children hold onto your keeps…
Momma might not be here in the morning.

Did you forget to lock for front doors?
It'll keep you up for hours more.
You're thinking' someone is coming to kill you…
You'll wake up again and check it.

But ain't funny how we all get so scared.
Rest easy town, I'll be singing you to sleep.
Sleep easy town
I'll be singing you to sleep.

Sleep…
Sleep…
Sleep….

Hush little trees,
quite your leaves.
Dim now you stars pass the message to mars.
Mother Earth sink your oceans a little lower.
We'd all love if would spin a little slower.
For me.
and for you.
The world will not wait.
The world will not wait.

Sleep easy town...
I'll be singing you to sleep.
Track Name: Freight Train
Freight train is going my way.
Further and further I stray,
from this world and I am not afraid to live in it.
Cause I've got so much that's left here unfinished.

I shoulda brought you some orchids,
you got that smile on your face.
For every once of grace you gave,
you gave me so much grace.

Only for today,
life is going my way.
Cause I am free of guilt.
And I am not ashamed.

And I am looking back in time,
all my reasons had their rhymes.
When everything you did for me,
yes you did it all for me.

Only for today,
life is going my way.
Cause I am free of guilt.
And I am not ashamed…

Freight train is going my way.
Further and further I stray,
from this world and I am not afraid to live in it.
Cause I've got so much that's left here unfinished.

But I was just a boy…
Got those memories of you.
As you stood there with me in a rocking chair with you.
You sang in harmony,
oh you sang to me…
I guess a singer I must be…

Only for today,
life is going my way.
Cause I am free of guilt.
And I am not ashamed…

Freight train is going my way.
Further and further I stray,
from this world and I am not afraid to live in it.
Cause I've got so much that's left here unfinished.

The world is soon gonna throw you,
I know I'll come back again this town,
I've got so much that's left unfinished.
