I know I can be a little overwhelming It’s hard enough already to make it through But that’s the price I figure I’m paying To have my muse, to know your name I don’t wanna lose you, If​ I don’t have to But sometimes I think the earth is gonna Open up and swallow you whole Love is a weapon, See if you can use it ‘Cause I don’t wanna fight like this anymore I don’t wanna fight You lost your nerve, did it happen for a reason Were you bolder, were you stronger, are you still asleep Well, it’s too late now, to think about what happened I’m swimming in an ocean of divine discontent CHORUS Everyone is in love with the sun As it falls and ignites the sky Oh but, give me twilight, the outline of starlight I’d rather be blue tonight CHORUS
3.
This is the kind of sadness I thought I buried Into the ground It’s grown into a lion Now it’s waiting To devour All of me, all my heart All of me, all my heart And I heard somebody say That somebody said that I said they said And they’re telling lies Yeah I heard somebody say That somebody said that I said they said And I’m not surprised This is the kind of sadness I fall asleep to Dream away You are the lion I let you take me I let you stay Beside me, dangerously Beside me, dangerously CHORUS It gets worse as the winter wears on and It gets worse as the winter wears on and It gets worse as the winter wears on and on and on… This is the kind of sadness I can count on It never really leaves I’m in love with a lion One step in the darkness Got a hold on me Is this what I deserve? Is this what I deserve? CHORUS
4.
The black spruce swamp Is where I like to go When the storm it rolls There my heart goes The black spruce swamp Knows the way I walk Loves you from afar From dawn to dark All of these templed trees Bringing me to my knees And the ground moves up And the ground moves up To meet me That mighty river Feel the undertow Let it pull you down And watch it grow Oh, to be that river On and on, I roll Never looking back Bend high and low CHORUS
5.
She 04:13
She’s been trouble since she walked in I think she knows it But she don’t care There she goes again she’s right on time Racing through my mind And everywhere She’s a songbird in the springtime She sings at sunrise Like the bluebirds do She’s a little colder in the winter But together We’re gonna make it through She’s got a mind that I can never seem to satisfy But she’s got this love And I can never seem to get enough She’s a lover, but she’ll fight for us When it seems we’re lost She’ll find a way She’ll be patient if I fuck this up She knows I’m better off Learning the hard way CHORUS She’s been trouble since she walked in I think she knows it And I don’t mind
6.
If you wanna burn this house down I gotta let you know It ain’t gonna be easy The way the wind’s been blowing If you wanna burn this house down You best have a plan I can stand in this inferno I’m not sure if you can Stoke the fire ‘til the flame burns higher And everything smolders to ash But don’t come crawling back when there’s nothing left If you think you’ve got an army You better look around You’re only King of Idiocracy And you proudly wear the crown If you think you’ve got an army What are they fighting for? I pledge allegiance to hypocrisy There’s no justice in war CHORUS I’ve got the match now, don’t turn your back now I’ve got the match now, don’t turn your back I’ve got the match, the tables are turning ‘round I’m not the only one here With something to lose my dear, no If you wanna burn this house down I’m sure you understand No way you’ll get away with it No, devil be damned CHORUS

Lost My Way 04:30
This place isn’t what it used to be Everyone’s trying to take a piece of me And the road is overgrown And I can’t find my way No one knows who we are in here One hand anchored to the sky And here we go again Strangers in this land Maybe I’m to blame for what has happened Maybe I’m to blame for what’s gone wrong Maybe I’m to blame and you said Baby, this happens to us all The wind is howling trying to talk sense into me I keep wondering if this could be Just a bad run Yeah, just a hard run The block gets smaller every step I take It’s my own fault if I’m in this shape Ain’t no need to go no further Better get out while you can Maybe I’m to blame for such a fine mess Maybe I grew into it, I don’t know Maybe I’m to blame for all these secrets Being sold I’ve lost my way back home Lost my way back home Lost my way back home And I know I can’t go back now Lost my way back home Lost my way back home Lost my way back home Lost my way back home Lost my way back home
9.
Rally & Cry 03:57
Given all we’ve crucified Are we not yet satisfied With all that we have left to die We see them fall before our eyes We’ve got our hands on their demise But we cannot begin to recognize We all love the underdog When it’s easy to fight We manufacture outrage And wear it with pride We rally & cry There’s a black cloud in the sky Begging us to rectify We pull it down and cover up our eyes Don’t wanna take a look inside Don’t wanna face the truth tonight That maybe we just don’t have it right We all love the underdog At least just in our minds We manufacture outrage When we judge it justified We rally & cry, oh Are we not yet satisfied? Are we not yet satisfied? Are we not yet satisfied? Are we not yet satisfied? Are we not yet satisfied? Are we not yet satisfied? Are we not yet satisfied? Are we not yet satisfied?

I wanna go darker A shade blacker than blue I wanna go darker Slide just outta sight Away from the light With you It’s fine here in the shadows Come on I’m gonna let this daydream Fade into night Oh, it feels right Don’t wanna give a damn Don’t wanna bother with you But I wanna go darker So if you won’t let me go I’ll pull you down You know it’s true Don’t wanna be a good girl, no I’m not your fool The fire in the sky Tells me, oh It’s almost time To make you mine I wanna go darker A shade blacker than blue I wanna go darker Slight just outta sight Away from the light With you

Appaloosa 05:12
Appaloosa, appaloosa There at my door Won’t you please stick around And play some more Appaloosa, Appaloosa Take your sweet time ‘Cause all I really want back Is what’s mine Can you believe how fast this thing goes? And all I can do is what it fold They say time will heal your wounds But it can’t help you, honey It always comes too soon Appaloosa, appaloosa Lay at my door Take a rest, catch your breath Don’t bleed me anymore Appaloosa, Appaloosa So long farewell The damage you have done Ain’t no tongue can tell Can you believe how fast this train rolls? And all I can do is what it go They say time will heal your wounds But it can’t help you, honey It always comes too soon Appaloosa, appaloosa You broke my heart Won’t you please grant me just One more start Oh, I promise you things They’ll be different this time You can go your way And I’ll go mine They say time will heal your wounds Oh, but it can’t help you, honey It always comes too soon

Somebody said they saw the fire I don’t see it, I don’t see it Somebody’s preaching ‘bout revival I don’t feel it, I don’t feel it All I know is all that I’ve been through And I don’t wanna have something to prove But I do I’m not gonna let you break me I’m not gonna let you break me I’m not gonna let you break me down Somebody sounded off a siren I don’t hear it, I don’t hear it Somebody’s cryin’ out a warning I won’t heed it, I won’t heed it I’d say the revolution’s overdue And I don’t wanna have something to prove But I do CHORUS So what If it’s an uphill fight I know I got it right So what If I’m losing my mind I had to know it’s just a matter of time Gave my all To devil I don’t know And I don’t mind I don’t mind I don’t mind CHORUS Somebody said they saw the fire I don’t see it, I don’t see it
13.
Fell asleep with the light on Haven’t felt this way in so long, so long Been back and forth but I’m still gaining ground And what feels like home Feels good for now Just a little overwhelming Given how much you mean to me, to me Never wanted something so much No matter the cost It’s never enough I’ve been down this road Don’t think I don’t know The songs that I’m laying down tonight Have got a way to make it right The winter’s almost through And I belong with you The snow’s falling again tonight And I’ve got this feeling we’re alright On the north side, the north side, yeah Wildflowers and weeds Tangled ‘neath the trees And I’m just trying to get by All along the way Nothing seems to stay the same No, not you and I CHORUS
