Pockets 02:53 video
If looks could kill you’d win You’re good and you know it “How can I help you find what you’re looking for?” You chew me out then Damn Did you get what you came for? Ammunition for a fight A stock hold in my safe tonight Your mind sees all these things to use For no good What’s the use for pockets if they’re empty? Fill them up with things you’ll use against me You turn that cart around Bare its teeth and you know it Face-off in aisle four Spill that milk on the floor I can count to ten then what? And I got what I came for Ammunition for a fight A stock hold in my safe tonight My mind sees all these things to use For no good What’s the use for pockets Here’s what I do Fill them up with things I’ll use against you What’s the use for pockets if they’re empty? Fill them up with things you’ll use against me

Driving By 04:24
In a minute start driving by In a minute start driving by Put your hands down They just get in the way For to watch a man die might save your case In a minute start driving by In a minute start driving by Split chain that tire tread rips around I’m just waiting for you to run me down You don't know habit - burns like a flare in the rain You can try to call me, but I won’t come home again It’s a fair romance to let your lover feel no pain Everyday I die to have my arms open You can have your way Are we really better alone? In a minute start driving by In a minute start driving by Just a stranger to eyes behind the wheel Head wrapped round to collide with chrome and steel In a minute start driving by When it hits me just close your eyes Cut your breaks if you have to hesitate Tears won’t pardon and gas won’t feel the weight Feel the weight You don't know habit - burns like a flare in the rain You can try to call me, but I won’t come home again It’s a fair romance to let your lover feel no pain But everyday I die to have my arms open You can have your way Are we really better alone? You don't know habit - burns like a flare in the rain You can try to call me, but I won’t come home It’s a fair romance to let your lover feel no pain But everyday I die to have my arms open You can have your way Are we really better alone?

Secrets 02:34 video
I've seen you do things at night, I can't explain in my mind. If you spill the beans, They won't fit back in place. There's no way out. I know you I know you I've seen that face before I can smell. Your hair Your clothes I could taste you from a mile away With that girl You played me for a bird Who else will she fool with those wings Who else will she catch between her teeth? Forgiveness sounds bitter Put your hands over my ears Make her face disappear Radio my eyes are red I can't erase these images Do I know you anymore Am I the one who egged this on? I know you I know you I've seen that face before I can smell Your hair Your clothes I could taste you from a mile away With that girl You played me for a bird Who else will she fool with those wings Who else will she catch between her teeth? Forgiveness sounds bitter Put your hands over my ears Make her face disappear You fool I don't know you Run while you can I know you I know you I’ve seen that face before I can smell Your hair Your clothes Put your hands over my ears Make her face disappear

Say It 03:49
Just any hospital wait is enough Something beholden to old love Voice in the wires a haunted refrain spoken of A way to turn back and get off Waiting before time lets on what it wants Passing around tacit omens Take up the burden put out by good grace of the mob They raced through the streets and strayed off Say it, say it, stay in photographs Gray away and cry for what your vanity told you Say it, say it, call it home The words of your conscience overgrown Of course I pretend to be mad to speak up Fever is warmer than old love Hollow you out, fill you up with the dregs from my cup They spit back in my face and step off Say it, say it, stay in photographs Gray away and cry for what your vanity told you Say it, say it, call it home The words of your conscience overgrown

Down By One 03:25
Fear don’t You gave me your word You gave me your body You comfort and you hurt Don’t come I changed all the locks If you can’t find enough here I’ll give you all the space to search Think I’ll be fine here Think I’ll do just fine here Think I’ll just lie here The ways I have to hold on down by one Take some Better truth than time Better time than stalling Better yours or mine What’s just Isn’t half the crime It took all I had from me It took all I had in me Think I’ll be fine here Think I’ll do just find here Think I’ll just lie here The waves upon the risen tide Think I’ll be fine here Think I’ll do just fine here Think I’ll just lie here The ways I have to hold on down by one

We dig ourselves a hole Across the fire line We wanted violence You should have had his hand We call each other’s own Provide a saw shoot tale And lie under where they fell Who says our hands have the power To choose right from wrong? The left doesn’t know what the right does at night You wake up that shot leaves your gun If you quit talking We’ll figure it out It’s a cold day in hell When the weather got to choose Everybody called up Everybody with a gun You call each other’s own Provide a saw shoot tale And lie under where they fell Who says our hands have the power To choose right from wrong? The left doesn’t know what the right does at night You wake up that shot leaves your gun If you quit talking We’ll figure it out

Western Love 04:23
Oh - and thanks for the gold and western love Your head back forth, your eyes cried shut If I dine before they call your fast off Will two settings be too much? Shoot an arrow past me Wrapped with injustice to carry Dead and covered Dead and covered Yeah - pretty dancers dwell deep down in the ravine Right where they last fell, gone down fighting all alone I call you out - how dare you even think like that What’s done is done Shoot an arrow past me Wrapped with injustice to carry Dead and covered Dead and covered Though we must break the spell, you know that all is well Though we must break the spell, you know that all is well My, how our hands have grown, a morning fling Gave up light unborn for coffee, chocolate and disease When I bought you flowers I bought my God given right to leave And resize the ring Ah, does it suit me well, you’ve had enough to say Unholy Hell, yeah I got room for one last taste Turn up in swelling numbers clawing at the gates They can’t stand to wait. Shoot an arrow past me Wrapped with injustice to carry Dead and covered Dead and covered Dead and covered Though we must break the spell, you know that all is well

Stakes 04:54
Do you still have all those boxes in the basement? Do you still have all those plans hidden in your vault? Won’t you call up all your friends to bring them back into your care Hustle up to your high tower, you can defend them there Have you saved up all the money you were keeping? Made some sound decisions signed in blood Meant to tell it to everyone before boils festered and weeped Sorry son, you had your fun, now turn to bite your cheek The itch is deep You shouldn’t surmise you caught the whole world on roll Together in strife, you collect your prizes in full I’m calling tonight the end of the epoch again Pull your stakes out of the land Silly toys for your simple satisfaction Keep your honest thoughts wrapped up inside Fill up on your comprehension that has now caught you unaware Put er there - your shake is limp, but you know I just don’t care You shouldn’t surmise you caught the whole world on roll Together in strife, you collect your prizes in full I’m calling tonight the end of the epoch again Pull your stakes out of the land

Night Sweats 03:38
It’s been too long For loss, it’s a nice change of pace But at a cost Been dry, torn up Fenced in by the forces of the day I’m turned and I’m tossed Night sweats, a fate in hand Night sweats, charmed by the man Too many gods at home Too dark a starry dome The race gave me away Pent up in dreams Caressed by the fire of a flame Too vast to stop Today God made But tomorrow the poor sucker slave Grips bars aloft Night sweats, a fate in hand Night sweats, charmed by the man Too many gods at home Too dark a starry dome The race gave me away The race gave me away

Ocean 04:13
One, two many times Before you tell me anymore, I should say, words can’t speak like your lies do You’re gonna burn on down the highway divide. I’ll cross the ocean I’ll buy my way But I won’t bide my time Sitting by your fire Your spit turns charred at every mark of your kiss My nerves, singed and dark Never dreamed to be that hot Till you burned on down the highway divide You deceived me, With the hint of your eye That torch licked my paw, The invisible thread to your heart on fire. I’ll cross the ocean I’ll buy my way But I won’t bide my time Sitting by your fire.
