Track Name: Make Her Stay
She had an old brown pick up truck and an old brown dog,
no clue where she's going, how many miles that she's logged.
All I know is that she's heading the other way,
not one thing in this world could make her stay.

She's back on the road again with the pedal to the ground,
no clue where she's going, just getting out of town.
All I know is that she's heading the other way,
not one thing in this world could make her stay.

Oh, there she goes.

Don't know why she had to leave, wish I could make her stay.
Wish I could get to know her. Wish she was heading my way.
All I know is that it's just not my day, not one thing in this world could make her stay.

Oh, there she goes.

She had an old brown pick up truck and an old brown dog,
no clue where she's going, how many miles that she's logged.
All I know is that she's heading the other way,
not one thing in this world could make her stay.
Track Name: Knife
Your smile cuts me like a knife
ever since you took it from my life.
Your teeth they form the serrated edge.
Being cut by it has been my privilege,

and I could be the one sitting next you.
posing awkwardly as he is known to do.

Hey baby, you wear your thoughts so well
but lately they've been putting me through hell.
Your big brown eyes are the windows to my soul.
How is it you've grown and I'm the one who's old.

and I could be the one sitting next to you
posing awkwardly as he is know to do.
and I could be the one standing next to you
asking awkwardly as he is known to do.

and I will carry this until the day I die.
and I don't want to stop I don't even want to try.
Though the time you spent in my life was not long
oh for that time you made me feel so strong.

and I could be the one sitting next to you,
and I could be the one standing next to you,
and I could be the one taking care of you.

Your smile cuts me like a knife.
Track Name: The Company Ink
Ever since that night behind the bar
sandwiched between you and your car
I can't sleep. I can't sleep at all, I stay awake
just for your sake.

Now that you're lying next to me,
still and breathing slow as can be
I can't sleep. I can't sleep at all I stay awake
just for your sake.

Now I'll never see you again
inkwell eyes and the smell of your skin and
I can't sleep. I can't sleep at all I stay awake
just for your sake.
Track Name: Don't Wanna Come Back Home
I don't wanna reach the day that I meet my goals
and I don't wanna stop
and I don't wanna come back home.

I don't wanna wake up in the morning happy with the
life that I have built
and I don't wanna come back home

Got a heart of steel and my eyes are welders glass.
It keeps me strong and they help me block the past.
Track Name: Hope For The Dead
Love me in good times. Test me in bad.
Make me prove you're the best I've ever had,
and if I fail throw me away.
I wasn't worth it anyway

Love me in fine times. Test me in strange
You can push but I don't think I can change,

and what I've been wondering, can't seem to get it out of my head,
I may be hopeless, but is there hope for the dead.
Track Name: Outta This Nothin'
Wish I was someone. Wish I had somethin'.
Wish I could crawl my way out of this nothin'.
Wish I had thoughts so strong they could carry
me from the world so imaginary,

but my words they have no weight.
The edges continue to frey,
and it's only so long 'til the picture is gone
and I have nothing left to say

to you today. Say to you ever.
Say to you now that I'll see you never.
Say all things that I need to say but
you don't give one good God damn anyway,

so I'll stop and I'll yell at the sun.
I've got nowhere else to run.
As I stare at the wind don't know where to begin
to find out where I've come undone.

Seems so cliche just to try and win the war
when you don't know what the hell you're fightin' for.
You dig and you dig and you try to find more,
but losing the battle's what you were built for.

Well I'll stop and I'll stand my ground.
I look and there's no one around,
and as soon as it's begun I am overrun.

Wish I was someone. Wish I had somethin'.
Wish I could crawl my way out of this nothin'.
Wish I had thoughts so strong they could carry
me from the world so imaginary,

but my words they have no weight.
The edges continue to frey,
and it's only so long 'til the picture is gone
and I have nothing left to say
Track Name: Cutlass
I'm a bitter man and I've got no plan
but to walk this land till there's no more land.
'Til it all is gone sell it from my lawn,
'till it all is gone, 'till you all are gone.

Will you take me back? Will you take me back?
You take so many back, but will you take me back?
From that final swim between me and him
will you take me back? Can you take me back?
Track Name: For A While Now
It's been coming apart for a while now,
separating from itself somehow.
I don't know why and I don't know how
it's been coming apart for a while now.

It's been coming apart for a while now.
Falling away by the chunk somehow.
I don't know why and I can't care how
it's been coming apart for a while now.

I wish I could say I was just a kid
when I did all the things I did,
but you're the age that I was now
it's been coming apart for a while now.

For a while now, for a while now,
it's been coming apart for a while now.
I don't know why and I can't care how
it's been coming apart for a while now.

My woulds are not yours to clean.
I'm sorry that I've been so mean,
but I've gone wrong and I'm not sure how.
It's been coming apart for a while now.

and I don't know just what to do.
I ain't myself and there is no you,
but I can't be your concern now.
It's been coming apart for a while now.

For a while now, for a while now,
it's been coming apart for a while now.
Falling away by the chunk somehow,
it's been coming apart for a while now.
