Track Name: In the Running
I’m in the running,
I think for something
I don’t know what it is
or what I’m supposed to be.
I tell you one thing
I tell you anything
I’ll fill your mind up
and I will set you free.

I’ll take your money,
I’ll take your mind,
then I’ll let you go uh oh oh oh.

I’m in the running,
I should know one thing
we rising uuuuup
early with the sun,
I’m in the running,
If I knew just one thing
I’ll send them early off,
I send your baby sons.

I’m a lie,
you knew this time,
so give it up uh oh oh oh.

I’m decided to keep on moving,
all the eeeeyes
they all can’t roll at once,
I’m in the running,
If we stop moving
all these wolves will tear us all apart.

I’ll tell you anything,
I’ll sell you everything
I do it for you who ew who we who.

you ain’t no voter,
you ain’t no one, got no money you got nothing that I want.
Track Name: Mistakes Make Pretty Patterns

And I know you hear me.
And I am not that sound asleep,
And I am not trying to be mean.

Track Name: Hold Your Breath
Hold your breath,
Don’t explode,
Time’s have changed,
and it’s time you know

Hold you tongue,
Don’t speak out,
The words you speak
are the words we shout

Spoken like fool,
these forces that rule
Breaking my hopeless attitude
Shining like a shower on this forces this hour
bringing the bad news down to you.

We’ll take you down,
We’ll take you down,
Baby we won’t even make a sound.

We’ll take you down,
We’ll take you down,
Baby we won’t even make a sound.

a sound.

What you see, it it’s in me,
the bargains we make,
is the shit we breathe
On this road, we must do,
the passing of a better me to you.

Spoken like fool,
these forces that rule
Breaking my hopeless attitude
Shining like a shower on this forces this hour
bringing the bad news down to you.

We’ll take you down,
We’ll take you down,
Baby we won’t even make a sound.

We’ll take you down,
We’ll take you down,
Baby we won’t even make a sound.

a sound.
Track Name: Ten Times Harder
All my life,
All that I want to be,
is with you and good looking family,
I could haven out West forever,
instead I stuck it out in the brutal weather.

All my life,
I say to my enemies,
thanks to you, thanks for the memories.
These times were tough, these times were tough,
but you made me stronger.

Oh what a silly life,
Oh what a silly life.
I could have made you up,
I could have made you in my mind

Oh what a silly life,
Oh what a silly life.
Are you real enough or
are you in my mind?

I’m divided in the way I walk
I’m divided in the way I talk
Don’t you tell me that’s it’s going to be easier
It’ll only make it tens times harder

All my life,
All that I want to do,
Is to be here be here singing for you,
I’ll sing for you, I’ll sing for you,
I’ll sing forever…

Track Name: Honey
I could have been a lot,
I could have been more,
But I’m tired of keeping score.

I think about the waves,
I think about the sky,
I think about the mountains in our lives.

I didn’t mean to haunt you,
I didn’t mean to haunt you,
but I did.

Hide your money in your bed,
Keep it in a box as long as your fed.
Keep it in the stars inside your brain,
Keep it in the sounds that keep you sane.

I didn’t mean to haunt you,
I didn’t mean to haunt you,
but I did.

I’ll go to Hell for what I’ll do,
I’ll go to Hell,
and there’s nothing you can do.

you think can save me,
you think you can save me,
why don’t you.

All these cars are making me mad,
take them aways I swear on that.
I want to see what we have done,
I want you to see so you don’t run.

If you need something,
If you need something,
I’ve got more.

Oh this foolish side of me,
My mistakes I blame on thee.
Never meant for it to go wrong,
Never meant to cause you harm.

If you need something,
If you need something,
I’ve got more.

I’ll go to Hell for what I’ll do,
I’ll go to Hell,
and there’s nothing you can do.
Track Name: Steamroller
What it take to make a mountain,
on this road, on this road?
Our lives are like a moment
carved in stone, carved in stone.

All my life it wakes me up, it wakes me up
All my life, you never know where to run to,
you never know, you never know.

That’s the steam roller.

How many times have I told you lately,
I think were caving in, caving in.
I have to admit that I think it made me what I am,
made me what I am.

All my life it wakes me up, it wakes me up
All my life, you never know where to run to,
you never know, you never know.

Guess it’s time run…

All my life it wakes me up, it wakes me up
All my life, you never know where to run to,
you never know, you never know.

That’s the steamroller.
That’s the steamroller.
That’s the steamroller.
Track Name: Take It to My Grave
I can protect you,
like you’re my son.
They would arrest you,
but I would never tell no one.

I’ll take it my gra——aaa-ve,
What you did is amazing.
I’ll take it my gra——aaa-ve,
You will be a hero some day.

Don’t call us helpless,
We got what we need.
If Dying is something,
We can try to fix these things,

The truth can be ba——aa-ad,
Give it to us nice and slow,
The truth can be ba——aa-ad,
Everyone deserves to know

That’s information person to person
My hand to yours, and then back to my mine.
That’s information, mass incarceration,
the state of world is resting on a dime.

We’ll take it our my grave,
What you did is amazing.
We’ll take it our my grave,
You will be a hero some day.

All with my heart and my soul
Everything I have to catch you,
All with my heart and my soul
How’d you get the world to hate you.

You’re not evil (repeat)
