Track Name: 3rd Rail Pissing Contest
You're torn between your mind and mine.
You know I'll win before you try.
The easy out has come and gone.
And it's my chance to prove you wrong.

Better let me run with it. Better let me drive it.
Better let me have it all I'm not joking.

I am better than you all.
How many times must I prove it?

Just pack it in and take my ride.
If not, to whom will you subscribe?
And what you learn won't help at all.
No right, no wrong it's all a draw.

Better let me run with it. Better let me drive it.
Better let me have it all I'm not joking.

I am better than you all.
How many times must I prove it?
Track Name: And I
And I, I lie. And I am hiding
From your eye for a while. And I.

And I get tired of myself
And want to go away and die. And I.

I'm lying here next to you.
But your body is not in my view.
I can't see anything
When my mind plays these tricks all night long.

And I get frightened.
And I won't do a thing I want to do with you and I

I never meant to do those things I never did.
I will fall and never come again.

And I get frightened.
And I won't do a thing I want to do with you and I
Track Name: Stay Out of My Corner
Stay out, stay out, stay out of my stuff

I know you've been touching all my stuff.
I know you've been in my things.
I have my ways.
Track Name: I-40
And now it's time to calm down, calm down now.
They've taken everything, everything I gave you.
I know that you'd broken down, broken down alone.
And when you weren't around to defend your ground, they came.

Don't let them go away.

Today was to be a great day, you'd go away and learn.
But you never left the ground, they hurt that town away.

Don't let them go away.
And life is stolen everyday.
Don't let them go away.
Track Name: Breakthrough
When the rain falls the same.
When the weather reminds you.
When your face seems old
And you've been in the cold.

Everything has change but what I wanted to.
Hold on til we can.

Breakthrough, if I can breakthrough.
Breakthrough, Oh I will breakthrough.

When your plate seems familiar
And you're tired of the same taste.
Feel you're moving with the same speed.
You're not getting anyplace.

Everything has changed but what I wanted to.
Hold on til we can.

Breakthrough, if I can breakthrough.
Breakthrough, Oh I will breakthrough.

When the song doesn't change
Catch you singing the same tune.
When the sun goes away
Leaves you sickened in your room.

Everything has change but what I wanted to.
Hold on til we can.

Breakthrough, if I can breakthrough.
Breakthrough, oh I will breakthrough.
Track Name: Orchard
It meant so much at the time.
Now it's nothing and I am fine.

And it's taken a while.
I'm done wasting my time.

Say I'm feeling like such a fool.
Now I see it and it is through.

And it's taken a while.
I'm done wasting my time.

So what to do with all these things?
Carried around like they had meaning.

And it's taken a while.
I'm done wasting my time.

Destroy them all for all I care.
Now it's nothing and I'm alright.

And it's taken a while.
I'm done wasting in my time.
Track Name: I Lied Again
The truth is not a thing I'm afraid of.
I'm just not good at being on it's side.
Said I'd be gone, off with some sun.
I was wrong, I'm not one.

When I said I would change all of this
I lied again, I lied again.

You are not a thing I run from.
I get scared, too scared to run.
I set myself in what I think is stone.
When it breaks up I'm all alone.

When I said I would change all of this
I lied again, I lied again.

What can I do to combine myself?
Promise I made seems in the dark.
I'm just not good, I'm just not bad.
And here's the truth, I can do nothing.

When I said I would change all of this
I lied again, I lied again.

And when I go my lies will tell on me.
I'll keep them down, I'll keep them down.

I lied again, I lied again.
Track Name: Thunderhead
I didn't lie this time.
I've paid enough in my mind.
It wasn't mine but I took it.
The shame is yours but I feel.

I did nothing wrong but I've paid.
Is there any way I could have stayed?
Lights in my room I want back.
I've seen those walls it isn't there.

I didn't lie this time.
I'm taking back all of mine.
I wrestle with time but it's winning.
I didn't lie this time.

I did nothing wrong but I've paid.
Is there any way I could have stayed?
Lights in my room I want back.
I've seen those walls it isn't there.
Track Name: Soft
In the past it's rained on me.
And I've drowned so many times.
All I've done is wait and see.
Never liked a thing I saw.

I hear a sound that's so soft.
I turn the world down.
I'm tired of all the noise they make.

There it is, my favorite.
Burns my past and all I see.
Now I want to be alone.
Let my sound take care of me.

I hear a sound that's so soft.
I turn the world down.
I'm tired of all the noise they make.
Track Name: Apologetics
Hey, I'm lost. You think you're not.
Say I'm dumb. But I know the plot.
Claim you did. But you gave no thought.
They bring it. They sold, you bought.

Every last chance you had you blew.
Every last thing you thought you knew.
Think and feel it, all the way through.
Every last chance you had you blew.

With no heart there is no mind.
Without a mind there's no heart inside.

Every last chance you had you blew.
Every last thing you thought you knew.
Think and feel it, all the way through.
Every last chance you had you blew.
Track Name: Nathaniel
Nathaniel wasn't able to make it past that day.
Kicked out of town and died right away.
He came to his children and showed them the road.
Such a shame now we don't know where to go.

Oh what can I do?
Oh, we're not listening now.

Susan got lonely since Nathaniel left.
Taking all the kids and heading out west.
Well she knew as he did that it was all true.
She'd come this far, she'd see it through.

Oh what can I do?
Oh, we're not listening now.

What they saw, what they heard, I cant deny it.
What he knew, why he died, I will believe.
I will pass it on til he's been vindicated.
Didn't die for nothing, at least not to me.

Nathaniel wasn't able to make it all the way.
Didn't die for nothing, at least not to me.
Track Name: Leave it Alone
I've already lost my friends.
I've already been looked down on.
Have I already lost your attention?
I've already won this war.

I didn't come to fight but I can't leave it alone.
I don't care so much if I'm built on a stone.
When I know I'm right I can't leave it alone.
And I'm never done until they leave me alone.

I already know how it ends.
We've really had our own.
Have we already seen their aggression?
I'm ready to stop all pride.

I didn't come to fight but I can't leave it alone.
I don't care so much if I'm built on a stone.
When I know I'm right I can't leave it alone.
And I'm never done til they leave me alone.

Everyone these days is all worked up.
And it's time to let it go.
Holding and Holding.
Tighter and tired.
Not worth it always held.
But I know the lonely you.
And He'll heal the lonely world.
He'll heal it all.

I didn't come to fight but I can't leave it alone.
I don't care so much if I'm built on a stone.
When I know I'm right I can't leave it alone.
When it comes to the past, John leave it alone.
Track Name: Flat Ground
Driving back, from where she touched down.
She sees all the things, that pushed her out.

It’s been a couple years, since her feet were on flat ground.
Upon her return she was pulled back down.

Her father cheated through his life.
He took what he wanted, conveniently he died.

She wants to pound her fists, but it’s not worth the fight.
She hates to feel this way, she’s had to all her life.
Track Name: Killing Calm
I propose getting all you want is wrong.
I suppose I'm included there.
No surprise, they'll turn on me again.
I despise, keeping me from going south.

They're burning the rope.
They're killing their hope.
I'm calm as they tear it down.

I decline taking turns on being fooled.
Now they're fine but I don't care for not caring.

They're burning the rope.
They're killing their hope.
I'm calm as they tear it down.
