Track Name: Follow
Follow, Me to the water
Followed by heavy drinking
Follow me into the wake
It looks good but not cold enough to not swim
Track Name: I Can See From Here
He feeds the ducks
lunch break from his 9 -5
the better years of his life
are all behind him
for decades straight
never missed a day
when he retired all they gave him was a store bought cake

and everybody thinks he's and asshole because he grumbles when he talks
but the ducks all sing his praises smashing cake between their squawks

and I can see from here your inside are golden
but no one sees you the way I do
I can see it's true you're worth a million
don't let them make you believe that you were born to loose

she feeds the cats
every day at 10 and 3
down on avenue B
in San Antonio
she worked all of her life
just being some guy's wife
and now she feeds these cats to pass the time

and the townies think she's crazy because she wears a parka in June
The cats all think she's amazing because their bellies are never not full.


and I can see from here your inside are golden
but no one sees you the way I do
I can see it's true you're worth a million
don't let them make you believe that you were born to loose
Track Name: Let's Ride
The day I stop grinding is the day I'm gonna die
nothing nothing can extinguish the fire inside
my legs are broken and I know it
that's fine lets ride the day I give up will be the day I die

The day I learned to walk all I tried to do was run
the day I learned to talk I quit biting on my tongue
its not a blessing it's a curse either way I'll spit a verse
until I'm blue in the face until I roll up in hurse

It's like live grenades in my head
If I don't spit em out then I'ma paint the wall red
my boy Dave Carter said to reach the top
and if you don't stop flippin then you're never gonna flop

The day I stop grinding is the day I'm gonna die
nothing nothing can extinguish the fire inside
my legs are broken and I know it
that's fine lets ride the day I give up will be the day I die

the day you stopped playing that's the day you grew old
I'll never do a thing that I'm told 7 seconds said "young till I die"
I won't listen up and I'll never stand in line
Track Name: Nick Taylor
Repressing depression
I can't stress the fact
that history says we will all die
am I loosing my mind
or am I burning out
coming down from this high
it really sucks at the end of lives
if they just drop a 6 feet in dirt
Johnny Cash said it best
All we ever get is hurt

So hurt me
desert me
Black both my eyes
I'll never give up
enough is never enough
So hurt me
desert me
break all my ribs
enough is never enough
I'll never give up
Track Name: Park Bench
Swaying on your feet
trying to light a smoke
waiting on the bus
but you've got no where to go

you were sleeping in the park
in your dirty sweat pant suit
until the cops woke you up
and said " now it's time to move"

walking around wearing a motorcycle helmet
up and down the same streets you walked yesterday
wild Irish rose makes a mean world almost decent
its an illusion handcuffs quickly take away

there aint enough room in this city for a guy who
wants to drink himself asleep under the stars
they'll always be some shitbag to remind you right where you are
Track Name: Running For Days
You only smoke when you drink
You only drink when you're low
but lately it seams like you're one or both
You only laugh when you're high
So you get high all the time
Just to ease the pain on your troubled mind

Bud it feels like you've been running for days
Trying to keep up with their break neck pace
And it feels like you've been running for days
Can't stop the movement in your restless legs

You never learned how to say "no"
Foot the bill and pick up blow
No you recite all your lines with your noses
All day long from dusk till dawn
If you heard they turned up dead
I hope you heard wrong

But it feels like its been snowing for days
A white cloud looms over this God forsaken place
It feels like its been snowing for days
Cause I can't feel my face

One fateful night beneath that oak tree
You guessed it right
They both O.Ded
Spikes in their arms I won't forget
Life hit hard like a ton of brick

But it feels they've been sleepin for days
White sheets pulled over their faces
It feels like I've been asleep for days
This bed is an early grave

And you can call it a "crutch" if it helps you walk
And paint it as a promise if it's all talk
But talk is cheap and so are we
And take it for granted but when it's gone
You'll only relate to the saddest songs
I'm coming clean
But don't count on me
Track Name: Ode
I'll keep waiting for the day to come
when you realize finding happiness doesn't have to mean growing up
and the barns where you store your grain is up in flame
I meant it when I said it I'm paving my own way
