Track Name: The Stream of Consciousness
Slender blades of grass more so now than in the past
It's a phase I'm going through
Just a place I go with you
 
Rain we're not prepared and drench this bed we once shared
It's a phase I'm going through
Just a place I go with you
It's true, It's always for you
 
Silence screaming trees that only some of us could hear
It's a phase I'm going through
Just a place I go with you
And how could I not see all that love laid out for me
It's a phase I'm going through
Just a place I go with you
It's true, It's always for you.
 
A million birds are flying high above my head
Familiar prayers come from the ground
Above my head one million miles, above my head two million miles, above my head three million miles above my
 
Rain we're not prepared and drench this bed we once shared
It's a phase I'm going through
Just a place I go with you
And how could I not see all that love laid out to me
It's a phase I'm going through
Just a place I go with you
It's true, It's always for you. Always for you
Track Name: Gold
I see it in your eyes and I smell it in your clothes
I've burned it into memory with your pockets full of gold
And it ain't extraordinary. It's not a hard pose.
So simple to betray me with your pockets full of gold
 
Chorus
And you never had to worry 'bout making me mad
Everything you wanted lay out there to be had
Everything you needed was always free
You never had to answer to me
 
You can sense it all around you. It's nearly time to close
You send greeting cards and kisses. It's just sabotage in prose
Now I won't stop to wonder. What it all meant
'Cause I smelled it in your clothes and betrayal has a scent
 
Chorus
Track Name: Better Things
Well I've got a book of numbers
That I've been reading
I'm run-down and broken-hearted
And barely breathing
You counted out a second savior
I count down to losing
Bus fare for trips to nowhere
But mainly I'm standing still again
 
You give me away
Give me away
You give me
 
You might have to take it early
And take it often
So man-up and keep inhaling
Stop your coughing
I feel as if I've seen my own ghost
You look like forgetting
So tell another Jesus Jones joke
And I'll work on forgiving you again
 
You give me away
Give me away
It gives me away
Give me
 
You're so damned easy
Track Name: Crumble Away
Ain't got nothing to hide
Ain't got nothing but pride
There ain't no guarantees and ain't no sanctity now
X2 - I'm sorry to say
 
Gave my license away
Three weeks off without pay
Ain't got nothing left
'Cept these cigarettes now
 X2 - I'm sorry to say
 
Should I crumble. should I crumble away?
 
Give my heart to Jesus
Give my heart to Jesus
Sacred heart of Mary
Won't you come and touch me
And all will be forgiven now
Promise me - pray for me - promise me - blasphemy
 
Ain't got nothing to hide
Ain't got nothing but pride
Ain't got nothing left
'Cept these cigarettes now
 
I might not make it back
Offer one simple prayer
Blinding lights to shine on this soul of mine now
and take it away
Watch it floating
Watch it floating away

CHORUS
Track Name: Damn Damn Damn
You might not agree
You might not agree
But my hands are cold
Yeah my hands are cold
And it seems to me
Yeah it seems to be
That my James is gone
Yeah my James is gone
 
As I count the days
I try to think up ways
How can I keep my family whole
I gotta hold it in
'Cause once I begin...
Damn Damn Damn
 
You might not believe
You might not believe
But my bed is cold
Yeah my bed is cold
And it seems to me
Yeah it seems to be
That my James is gone
Yeah my James is gone
 
As I count the days
I try to think up ways
How will I keep my family whole
I gotta hold it in
'Cause once I begin...
Damn Damn Damn
Track Name: Overdue
I'm always right 
My glory's overdue
And when I'm wrong
I'm not as wrong as you
 
I'll watch the king and wait my turn to rule
But all this time, the king has been the fool
 
The king gets scared when he's alone
The queen has packed her shit and gone
 
'Cause I'm always right. I'm overdue tonight.
 
The coast is clear
Interrogation rooms
So come on in here
And conduct your interview
 
'Cause I'm always right. I'm overdue tonight
I'm always right, and I'm your king tonight
 
The king gets scared when he's alone
The queen has packed her shit and gone
They work their fingers to the bone
The king gets scared when he's alone
 
I'm always right 
My glory's overdue
And when I'm wrong
I'm not as wrong as you
 
The king gets scared when he's alone
The queen has packed her shit and gone
They work their fingers to the bone
The king gets scared when he's alone
Track Name: The Ballad of Reuben Kincaid
Turn this inside out and show all you would hide
Fingerprints on windows washed in crimson tide
It's easy to amuse but it's easier to kill
Ya jockey for position and ya run up that hill man
 
Send little Danny away (rept)
 
Olive branches burning and your golden goose is cooked
Ghosts of creole sunsets that float on rusted roofs
Useless intellectuals with futile hearts are bound
To sway the huddled masses at twice the speed of sound
Send little Danny away (rept)
 
Turn this inside out and show all you would hide
Fingerprints on windows washed in crimson tide
It's easy to amuse but it's easier to kill
Ya jockey for position and ya run up that hill man
 
Send little Danny away (rept)
Track Name: Walk It Off
Walking home the other day
I ran into another soul
Giving ground was not allowed
And mercy will not ever come
 
Walking home the other day
A conflict disguised as reward
Eyes for eye and teeth for tooth
My resolution soon dissolved
So walk it off
 
Brotherhood has drowned in fear
And saints desert us one and all
Make good use of your best tools
And dig your new bed in the ground
 
Walking home the other day
I ran into another soul
Giving ground was not allowed
And mercy will not ever
come
So walk it off
 
Brotherhood has drowned in fear
And saints desert us one and all
Make good use of your best tools
And dig your new bed in the ground
So walk it off
Track Name: Jewelry Box
When all your work is done
You'll go to one
Who hides the sun
And of all your waking dreams
You'll follow one
It's left un...
 
Small in all but grace a pirouette and your smiling face
 
When I was all torn down
My solace came
With one golden sound
Your house of wood and brown
The key is turned
See it spinnin' spinnin'
 
Small in all but grace a pirouette and your smiling face
 
When I was all torn down
My solace came
With one golden sound
Of all your waking dreams
You'll follow one
It's left un...
 
Small in all but grace a pirouette and your smiling face
