Track Name: Ornery Pete
ORNERY PETE
i've been lost a long time now. these stones that i follow. leave me blind. no one knows
wake me up, i've dreamed for long enough, i've made my piece. let me walk away. i believe this is eternity, on repeat,
let me walk away. i'm walking the same footsteps
Track Name: Our Eyes
OUR EYES
it's been a lot to take in. our eyes have seen a lot. our eyes have seen hell. where we're dropped we can't change.
our lives sank like rocks. our eyes have seen hell
but we're going up and we're going forward. we're not broken, just badly bruised.
i've been drug backwards but i'm fighting forward. the devils got me but i'm gonna cut him loose
when we're freed do we understand? your rules, that's the law. your eyes have shown me hell
i've been haunted and i've been beaten. a rag doll thrown into the growing weeds. i've shown love and i have received it
i chewed it up and it leaked out through my teeth. and one by one i loaded up my gun. on each bullet engraved is remorse
Track Name: Pale Ale
PALE ALE
go with the flow, the current of the road. never let them slow you down or make you feel old and tired
like they've done to me. long ago, before i was told. never put your chips all in, know when to fold your hand
and keep your head screwed on straight
the cold dark nights, they will pass. don't you fret, over the past
the pouring rain will clean the slate and the sun will shine on you again
don't be left out, tear down the walls. that you put up around yourself to make you feel safe and strong
baby steps to march on. off to war, one you can't see but when you take your gun to town they'll know what it's for
Track Name: Folding Up
FOLDING UP
what's the point of being here, when everything just falls apart? i've seen you suffering. everything is going dark
i know that when the ceiling hits the floor you'll fold. i know, cause i've seen it all before
there's no point in fighting you, when your minds already made. i've seen you circling. everything is going dark
i know that when the ceiling hits the floor you'll fold. i know, cause i've seen it all before
folding up. everything that can go wrong, surly will. ticking by. oh we wasted so much time
Track Name: Your Disguise
YOUR DISGUISE
you have got secret eyes that you hide behind. your veil isn't real, but that's your disguise
you stare, but you don't know where you are. (lost in thoughts surrounding what's in there). that blank white face I can't trace where you are. (I am losing touch it's proving hard). these lines i'm drawing are just small things.
but small things don't compare to who you are
i have got these ideas of what's taking place. they are thoughts but i'm wise that blank stare it almost fooled me almost fooled me. you still stare but you don't know where you are.....small things don't compare
