Track Name: Intro
I haven’t seen everyone I could see
And a million more faces wouldn’t mean anything
‘Cuz I sit at home and I pulse in my chair
It’s you that I’m waiting for
There’s no one I swear
And God I’m so alone
Where did you go when you sat on the phone
And what did you do when I saw you weren’t home
Yes it was who had seen everything
God won’t you come and release me
From this waste of a life that I’ve made
God just come home/come home/come home
Track Name: I'm Okay
What did you see when you saw me
And what did you do when I saw you cry
You thought I died / But I’m alright
What did you do when you lost me
And would you let go if you knew I was fine
‘Cuz I’m just fine / I swear this time
So you know I’m okay (2x)
I just don’t know what to do
No I really don’t know what to do
I figure I figure I need you I need you
I wish that I didn’t I wish that I didn’t die
So you know I’m okay (2x)
I just don’t know what to do
No I really don’t know what to do
Get me out of here please, please, please,
Take me out of here now, now, now
Track Name: God I'm Sorry
Take your time and leave it right on mine of far behind
I’m not going home / I’m not going back home
Break your pain and leave this life so soiled it should have stained
I’m not going home/ I’m not going back home
But the truth / I want it want it now
God I’m sorry, I need you here with me, God I’m sorry
Take your time and leave it right on mine or far behind
And break your shame and leave your life so soiled it should have stained
But the truth / I want it want it now
God I’m sorry / I need you here with me / God I’m sorry (2x)
There was a time / there was a time / I’d give myself to you
If there was a choice / if there was a choice / I’d rip my heart in two
God I’m sorry / I need you here with me / God I’m sorry (2x)
Track Name: Racing Stripe
You / You’re so brash
And you / You’re so brash
And I’ve got my racing stripe /And I’ve got my racing stripe
You / You got my heart
And you / You got my heart
And I got racing stripe / And I got racing stripe
But you never enjoyed me alone
No you never enjoyed me alone
You /Yes you got my heart
And you / Yes you got my heart
And I got racing stripe /And I’ve got my racing stripe
Track Name: Jawbreaker
Faith we’re only flesh and bones
Tears tear only from your home
Waste my mind on self control
Time to let you off my hold
No I hate it that you gotta let me go
The heartaches and the night shakes are my own
There’s rotting my mind and in my soul
Same old stories always told
Time to break me from this mold
No I hate it that you gotta let me go
The heartaches and the night shakes are my own
There’s rotting my mind and in my soul
Designed desire coming through me to you (2x)
No I hate it that you gotta let me go
The heartaches and the night shakes are my own
There’s rotting my mind and in my soul
Track Name: Let It Go
My head is freighting inside / And your heart’s so bruised but kind
Any my head is dreary dreadful / and my words so smoothly rhyme
And my arms are tired but safe here / And your chest so bare and white
And my lungs are black and smoke filled / And your eyes so large and bright
You didn’t know me / Where was the end oh we don’t know
Did we have to let it go
Break down and stall from scratching / And in bed the world’s away
Now stay fed with wine and envy / Force smiles or find a way
You didn’t know me / Where was the end oh we don’t know
Did we have to let it go
What did you ask for / Where did you go and are you safe
Did we have to let it go
You didn’t know me / Where was the end oh we don’t know
But we had to let it go / let it go / let it go
Track Name: Gone
You want me so badly / Well take this I’m happy / I’m lying my teeth hurt my tongue
I fake it/ I’m maddening/ It’s sickening and sadly/ I wait for your white ship to come home
I know deep down I was always your concern / You wish to God you had not left your turn
We break down every lie conceivable / I hope to God you’d always let me burn
I want you / I’m crazy / I just can’t say things so easy / Just know that I lie
We’re running in circle / I’m losing my sails / We’re dying / We’re happy we die
I know deep down I was always your concern / You wish to God you had not left your turn
We break down every lie conceivable / I hope to God you’d always let me burn
We don’t know what we got ‘til it’s gone (2x)
Track Name: G-Unit
Come to use ‘cuz I want you so badly / Then you take me and break me in four
Can’t you see that scene is so maddening / It ‘eaves me naked laid out on the floor
Open doors nothing more than a chore / I just don’t believe they’re all deaf blind and dumb
Can’t keep score I just feel like a whore / And you take from me and you leave me with none
And I don’t know/I’m selfish and sadly/ And I don’t know/ I’m fickle and frail
And I won’t go/ I’m Bright Eye’d I’m antsy/ And I won’t go
Feel for you when I’m wasted and battered / You play your songs for the sound of the praise
I can’t wake up from dreams shot and shattered/ I’m lying naked laid out on the stage
And I don’t know/I’m selfish and sadly/ And I don’t know/ I’m fickle and frail
And I won’t go/ I’m Bright Eyed I’m antsy/ And I won’t go
Track Name: Cute
Years lost / Tears lost / Fears found down the water
We’re done / Here’s fun / Saved you / Where’s my savior
Down on your mind / I’ve saved you again for the last time
Where were you for me?
Wait here / Stay dear / Take me down the water
I’m done / Here’s fun / Saved you / Where’s m savior
Down on your pride / I’ve saved you again for the last time
Where were you for me?
Track Name: Casino
I had my head torn up to pieces / You never seemed to care
You had this wish so sworn to secret / Inviting me to swear
And you thought my race was thrown aside / You can always count on me
To find the bright side of defeated / Now I’m begging you to breathe
I got my hands so slowly, slowly around your head
And you got this thing so surely, surely you must be dead
We had this wish this list define you / You never had a ball
And now this your masochist will find you / You almost had it all
Now this gift this waste of space defies you / Like a wretched wistful eye
And this case you’ve made to save will cite you / Like a sinner serves a side
I got my hands so slowly, slowly around your head
And you got this thing so surely, surely you must be dead
They let this hasted fate receive you / Thinking we were odd
And you let your wasted faith deceive you / Wishing they were God
I got my hands so slowly, slowly around your head
And you got this thing so surely, surely you must be dead
Track Name: Bees Knees
Finally I can wait here / A child not left for Savior / A harm deep inside you
I’m chased and I’m so tired / A feeling unadmired / As time starts to own you
Yours I can’t replace / I tried I failed I stayed / I came to conclusions
These months ate all my fire / They left me no desires / Just cold air confusion
I got this beating in my chest, and it hurts when you cry
I got this feeling of unrest, and it hurts when I lie
You change into your dress / You break my mind the best / So God can remind me
You sleep so sad at home / Enraged in your repose / Shaken but shining
I got this beating in my chest, and it hurts when you cry
I got this feeling of unrest, and it hurts when I lie
But I know when you’re gone I’ll be here waiting on
Just a voice that tells I’m just me
I got this beating in my chest, and it hurts when you cry
I got this feeling of unrest, and it hurts when I lie
Track Name: There I Shook
You came to me when you rose from the grave / And I tried to speak but you said to behave
You looked at me and you told me be brave / How can you tell that I’m always afraid
And there I shook
You made me promise take care of my mom / And my sisters swore I was a man from the start
And I tried to run but I did not get far / ‘Cuz you pulled on my hair like you pulled on my heart
And there I shook
You came to me when you rose from the grave / And you looked at me and told me be brave
How can you tell that I’m always afraid / How can you tell that I’m always afraid
And there I shook
