Track Name: A Friend
Broken, but not beaten
Hurtin', yet still stay
Leanin' on uneven floors
Bless the heart - of you & yours.

'Yer secret, is safe with me
And I will carry all your pain
But I won't cry with you honey
Help you up, like ya done for me.
Track Name: When The Flames Came
Captured and framed - Seen again and again
Condemned face has faded
You've dreamed this before - A nightmare and nothin' more
But you're not sleepin'

- Drown in your own reason - Why don't you?

Your haste is hazy - eyes sold too loosely
Why won't you end me already?
Your white lies - shall leave you blind
And you'll be forced to listen
To my demons - you've been blessing'

- Stained and desecrated - Your beloved

Well, well, well now
A chip off your blade
And all the blame has
Crumbled to clay
And in the way of my
Tracks you lay
The smell of gasoline

- When the flames came.
Track Name: Keep
Sun breaks the fog - Just to touch her face
Weeping on her knees - Unashamed
Trying to keep - herself from laughing
And gnawing - to stop - the bleeding

When she sang her song - it hurt so good
Hanging on - every word I would
Your damnedest - I know, you could

If my lips could reach - I'd kiss to keep
Cuz this day is dead - need water to breathe
Whatever life I've left
You can have - the rest

Aint' got a dime - to deserve to die
Aint' got no loan - to play me home
No devil's deal
To soothe my soul.
Track Name: Red Led
Dead man's boots - Cursed they may be
"Keep on the move - Need em' more than me"
- I'll sing, keen for him

Exit wounds - None I can see
Hid in the dunes - There are-a many
- And I'll pray, for his family

Red Led
Gone on got him
The weight he could not wager
Well, Hell aint' much further - Dead

Badlands - I'm bound down
Footsteps left - On this ol' hollow ground
And I hear - that 6 gun sound

His wits were cold - And cutting slow
Grave of gravel - So nothing' grows

Red Led
Gone on got him
The weight he could not wager
Well, Hell aint' much further - Dead.
Track Name: Little Song
Well look it here - The sayer can't speak
All my luck - I've already drunk
I'm a black burned tree still standing - up
Cut me down so I can heal - love

When the river meets the road
Here, have my heart - to hold

Just enough but just once more
Come back, don't go, I don't know how long
Cuz Lord knows, I can't do it all - alone
My body, not a bone to beckon

When the river meets the road
Here, have my heart - to hold.
Track Name: Cryin' Wolf
Aint' nothin' new - Aint' nothin' old
Always been - Hope I'm wrong
What I know - Aint' so
Cryin' Wolf - Don't cry no mo'

Wrong ways are worn
Sho be dead come morn
When my blood is born
No longer me torn
End of the line - won't seem so lonesome
And I'm smiling - for no reason

Come shadow - under my door
What are you - What are you waitin' for?
Please learn me to let go
Cuz what I know - aint' so
Cryin' Wolf - don't cry no mo

Aint' nothin' new - Aint' nothin' old
Always been - Hope I'm wrong
Hope I'm wrong.
Track Name: Farewell
Shore I'ma headed for
On a trail less traveled
And when I go
It'll be for good

Evenin' fallin'
And the winds are a rollin' in
And the debt I owe
Is as old as the hills

Please believe me
When I say goodbye
Sweet dreams to ya
And a goodnight

Time drags on as
Loves gone meager and mere
And it's been a many a moon
Since I knew you dear

I'll look before I leap cuz
Ashes won't wash me
The oath divined
Has passed away

Please believe me
When I say goodbye
Sweet dreams to ya
And a goodnight
Root was severed
Seed soak forever
And never dies

Shore I'ma headed for
On a trail less traveled
And when I go
It'll be for good.
