Track Name: The Weight Of Us Both
The Weight Of Us Both

Hell lay down; I’m on fire now.
I got rosary beads tided around my knees getting higher some how.
And when I leapt, I only took a single step.
When I landed I was cured like cement.

Heaven don’t tempt us now,
Cause we’ve got to much to do and to much to lose to be slowing down.
So I keep both feet on the ground,
Keep my head and my heart stuck in the clouds.

But I did this so you would know
That you’ll never, no never be alone
And I carry you in my soul
And I carry, The Weight Of Us Both.

Man I am starting to like my odds,
Said I am done playing God, that’s someone else's job
We didn’t get caught we got robbed.
Couldn’t hustle a hustle you can only skim of the top.

But I did this so you would know
That you’ll never, no never be alone
And I carry you in my soul
And I carry, The Weight Of Us Both.

If I would have known all I know now… I still wouldn’t put it down
I would have seen who I would be I wouldn’t recognize me.

I did this so you would know that you’ll never be alone.
And I carry you in my soul, I carry the weight of us both.
Track Name: Subtle Luck
Subtle Luck

I’ve been daydreaming for twenty-five years
And today.
I’ve been sleepwalking, I dreamt I was awake.
But everything from then to now had its place.

I’ve been convinced that this was all coincidence,
Subtle luck
It’s been my resistance that made me feel as such,
Cause when disaster is what your after,
It’s not enough.

So welcome to dead space
Is well placed, its well placed.
And you will fit here too.
What a brave concept.
Our lives and what comes next.
Its right no Q.

I’ve been dreaming of you till now,
And now I am dreaming only to make you proud.
Track Name: All The Time
All The Time
One of us will set, and the other one will rise
Some of us will move on some of us will stay behind.
And it aint no ocean, if there aint no tide
It aint no life to live if you ant going to die.

I feel those tight slips come on like vice grips
All the time.
I feel remind to try and keep finding my purpose in life.

Hello my best friend where have you been?
Welcome to lonely and tell them you know me and you’ll get in.
The best words I ever heard, things never said.
Got to live like your dying now
Like there’s a gun to your head.
Got to live like your dying now,
Cause you already died.

I feel the breaks slip sleeping in basements
All I’ve ever known
I feel divided on why I keep trying to face these things alone.

Cause this is my home.
I hope I have my place…
When the dam breaks!
When the dam breaks.

There aint ocean if there’s no tide
This aint no life to life if you ant going to die.

I feel those tight slips come on like vice grips
All the time.
I feel remind to try and keep finding my purpose in life.

I know ill have my place
When the dam breaks
When the dam breaks.
Track Name: Settle The Score
Settle The Score

I will pay you back,
Every cent you know that I was good for that.
And I will pay you first,
Compared to my other debts you seem so much worse.

You don’t owe me not anything, anymore; cause one of us will settle the score.
You don’t owe us not anything anymore, cause one of us will settle the score.

So I will pay you back.
I’ll put you in that big home with that brand new Cadillac.
And I will pay you fast.
Will you take cash, no questions asked.


You don’t owe me not anything anymore; cause one of us will settle the score.
You don’t owe us not anything anymore; cause one of us will settle the score.
One of us will settle the score,
One of us will settle the score,
One of us wants it more.

You Don’t Owe Me Not Anything Anymore.
You Don’t Owe Us Not Anything Anymore.
Track Name: Compromise Compromised
Compromise Compromised

Dam they caught you by surprise,
Had the meanest ease you seen in someone’s eyes
And when they called you, you were tongue-tide.
Holding wrist at the bedside.

And when it hit you, you were liquefied,
Couldn’t get how it caught you by surprise,
Saw it coming still it hit between the eyes
Was a compromise compromised.
We keep bumpin
Like we got to get something yo.
We keep running
We aint running from nothing… no!
Track Name: Liquid
Liquid

Hey man you think that I could get a job.
I work hard I work smart, I punch the clock.
Hey man you think that I could respect.
An honest wage, a days pay, a modest check,
This is all we expect,
I got so many dreams I never sleep you know and now I never rest.
I’ve got big plans that have to progress,
I’ve got big thoughts that have collapsed.
It’s Liquid.
It’s Different.

Hey man I bet I’ve got better credit then the government.
Sell me a home no one can break.
I bet you think this shit is genius
It’s give and take, you give and you take,
But I hope I get mine before it breaks,
I hope it plays to all my strengths.
It’s Liquid
It’s Different.

I have big plans that have to progress,
I’ve got big thoughts that have collapsed.
It’s Liquid.
It’s Different.
Track Name: When I Explode
When I Explode

They say it’s a lonely road
And I don’t dare walk it alone.
And I Keep you down below
Until I have to let you go.

When I exploded
They’ll all know
When I exploded
It will be your story I have told.

I’ll kiss you a thousand times
A thousand more I don’t mind
And ill keep you satisfied
Until one of us has to die.

When I exploded
They’ll all know
When I exploded
It will be your story I have told.

My eyes have seen all yours have seen
It talks to you it screams at me.
And when I make it … I make believe
Making it on my hands and knees.

When I exploded
They’ll all know
When I exploded
It will be your story I have told.
Track Name: George
George

Don’t call me that
My name is George
Lets not talk about him anymore

I want to be where the waves meet the shore
That aint my name you know my name is George

The old me wouldn’t have gotten as far
I buried the old me in my father’s backyard.

That wasn’t me, no I played that part
And I didn’t say that, that came from my heart.

Welcome to town brother how have you been
Its funny you ask
I out grow him.

And now I reside where the waves meet the shore.
And now they all know me will enough to call me George.
Track Name: And Now I Know
And Now I Know

I always knew there was something wrong
With everyone that I ever loved.
And now I know where they’re coming from
And now I know what they’re running from.

And now I know the Truth
It’s the ones that you love who will make you, you.

I used to sleep on the other side
Dream about things I’ve left behind
Stay up late just to chase the light
Sleep in just see what I could find
But now I know the score
Those points they don’t matter it just who wants it more
And now I know the truth
It’s the one that you trust who can never lie to you.

What a trip, what a spin
Judging how things have been
Go big, go all in
Take your losses, earn your wins

But now I know the score
Those points they don’t matter it just who wants it more
And Now I Know the truth
It’s the ones that you love who will make you, you.
Everyone that you love who will make you, you.
Track Name: Life is Tough
Life Is Tough

Father whatever it will take to wake you up
Life is tough
Brother will the others make us few enough
Life is fucked, in a beautiful way
It’s going to be a beautiful day.

Mother that cancer will never take you away
In my souls where you’ll stay
Lauren don’t you cry every thing will be ok
It’s all fucked up, but in a beautiful way

It’s going to be a beautiful day
It’s going to be a great year
Cause when all of my fears float away
All of my hopes…

Jesus… oh Christ will my life suffice?
Will I resurrect?
Working for everything that I will ever expect
I will sleep when I’ am dead.

Its going to be a beautiful day
Its going to be a great year
Cause when all of my fears float away
All of my hopes appear.

It starts right here.
