Track Name: Intro
I know life can be hard,
but we're all scarred,
show me your scars.

And don't you ever give in,
keep your head up,
as you sin.

You fall down and then get up again.
We all fall down but we get up again,
and again and again, we'll still be standing in the end

You say your life is shit,
well I think,
you're full of it.

Your life can't be all that hard,
'cause your'e not scarred,
you got no scars.

You fall down and then get up again.
Big deal, we all fall down but we get up again,
and again and again, we'll still be standing in the end
Track Name: Family Tree
I never got along with my family,
and now they’re stringing me up from the family tree.
Pa says I didn’t do right by his name,
well to me that shits all just the same.

Sunday morning comes too fast,
and I ain’t got time to atone for my past.

I woke up in the middle of a cold dark room,
I had told her that I would be home soon.
I guess that soon just never came,
well to me that shits all just the same.

Sunday morning comes too fast,
and I ain’t got time to atone for my past.

I’ll be moving, I’ll be moving on soon.
I hope you’re moving, oh, I hope you moving with me too.

Well, I’ve see some things I should not have seen,
and I’ve been told they’ve made be twice as mean.
I’ve done some shit I should not have done,
to me that was always the most fun.

Sunday morning comes too fast,
and I ain’t got time to atone for my past.

I never got along with my family,
and now they’re stringing me up from the family tree.
Pa says I didn’t do right by his name,
well to me that shits all just the same.
Track Name: Thought You Were Beautiful
I thought you were beautiful, I thought you were for me,
I thought you were everything you turned out not to be.

And I know someday you’ll fall in love, with some very unlucky guy
And I hope that on that day, god I hope you both die.
Yeah I hope you both die.

I thought you were right for me, it turns out I was wrong.
Now I’m left here holding nothing but this stupid song.

And I know someday you’ll fall in love, with some very unlucky guy
And I hope that on that day, god I hope you both die.
Yeah I hope you both die.
Track Name: Shooting Stars
Every time you close your eyes,
another shooting star flies by.
But you'll never see, and we'll never fall in love,
'cause all our wishes, are pinned on the stars above,
and they're falling, faster than you can see.
With your eyes closed shut tight for me.

So I will grab my riffle and my scope,
point them up at the sky and hope,
that I can shoot, a star down for you,
and that all of our, crazy dreams they will come true.
We can be anything we want to be.
With your eyes closed shut tight for me.
Track Name: Well Song
Woke up in the morning, and I was feeling pretty swell,
until I found out my old lady was at the bottom of well,
she was shot between her eyes, right between her baby blues,
if I ever find who did it, I will do it to them to.

Because you don't fuck with me,
or my family.

Woke up in the morning and I was feeling pretty great,
until I found out my best friend was at the bottom of a lake,
he was put there by some guy, who gave him some concrete shoes,
if I ever find who did it, well, I'll do it to them too.

Because you don't fuck with me,
or my family.

Because I try, oh lord I try.
If I don't get it right tonight, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna die.
But if I try, and I fail,
I'll drag you kicking and screaming with me, all the way to hell.
Track Name: Daytiming
Night became the day, and then the day it got real dark,
now pretty soon it will be time for another night to start.

But don't worry about me,
because I won't worry about you,
the funny thing about dreams is that they never come true.

Today was to short but then another one came quick.
I'm pretty sure if time don't slow down, I'll get sick.
Track Name: Devil Knows My Name
When I was a young boy, I hung out with the wrong crew,
they taught me all the wrong things to do.
Know I’m an old man, and I’ve never stopped to pause,
because I’m pretty sure I’m a lost cause.

Because the devil knows my name.

Broke into a house last night around 11:45,
I do that kind of shit all of the time.
I stole what I could sell and then i burned the rest to hell.
I need to get myself out of this town,

Because the devil knows my name.
Track Name: Lust
I saw you light fire to a hundred dollar bill.
When I asked you why, you said just for a cheap thrill.
I said that ain't so cheap, and I could show you a thing or two.
I took you back to my place, and I made love to you.

You said that's Ok, and I've had my share.
You blew me a kiss and then tied back your hair,
I said hey babe, what's your name again.
You looked at me grinned and said Original Sin.
Track Name: Allelu
I looked up at the night sky,and I saw a star.
i reached out my hand to grab it, lord knows it was too far.
But I'll be damned, I will be god damned,
if I didn't hold that little start, right in my hand.

Hallelujah

Well that start it shined so bright, it shined right through my hand,
and my body it made way, let that good light in.
But I'll be damned, I will be god damned,
If the light didn't shine it's way all the way through my hand.

Hallelujah
Track Name: Flytrap
Your broken promises fell like flies.
Now I’m sitting here alone watching days of our lives.
You know they say that soap operas are for the sad and the unemployed.

But I work, yeah I earn my keep.
Selling my soul forty hours a week,
and I’m not really that sad, I’m just annoyed.

If you ever fall again.
Please don’t look at me as your friend.
If you ever need me by your side.
Just think of all the times that you lied.

Your broken promises fell like flies.
Now I’m sitting here alone watching days of our lives.
You know they say that soap operas are for the sad and the unemployed.
Track Name: Fool's Gold
I've been told that I'm digging fools gold,
but I don't really care much about that.
I'm just digging for a new beginning,
to get away from the snakes and the rats.

And I don't really care about you.
Ok, I really care I guess that it's true.

All you people are just getting me down,
I guess I can't get away from my past.
But I'm just digging for a new beginning,
to get away from you snakes and you rats.

And I don't really care about you.
Ok, I really care I guess that it's true.
Track Name: For the Kids
The woman who raised me, she was a lowly writer.
The daughter of a matchmaker, and a prize fighter.

With a bottle in one hand and a pen in the other,
this is not the right way to write a letter to your mother,

but it is, it’s all for the kids.

The Woman I love, she left me to my own devices.
And I quickly fell back into all of my old vices.

With a bottle in one hand and a gun in the other,
this is not the right way to end a fight with you lover,

but it is, it’s all for the kids.

This guy I once knew, he treated me like I was his brother.
As far as friends go, it was as though I never had another.

with a bottle in one hand and my pride in the other.
This is not the the right way to sing a song for your brothers,

but it is, it’s all for the kids.
Yeah it is, it’s all for the kids.
Track Name: What I Need From You
I wonder where this story will end,
I've lost my home and I've lost my friends,
and I just want to begin again with you.
So tell me what I need to hear,
just tell me that you love me dear,
and tell me it will all be clear and true.

True is all I need from you.

And I realize you don't know any better than I do,
so I guess I'll try to tell you.

I'll tell you were this story will end,
a house, two kids, and mans best friend,
making a mess like they tend to do.
And I don't need much more than this,
your hand to hold, your hot wet kiss
this must be what they call bliss it's true.
Track Name: The Drinking Life
I've been drinking my life away,
and I've been feeling that your life is so great,
but it's my own damn fault that I'm always late,
and it's my own damn fault I can't see straight.

When you came over dear, I feared the worst,
because, though I love you dear, you looked like you just crawled out of the wrong side of a hearse.

Baby you say that you don't love me anymore,
is that because whoever you get home, I'm already asleep on the bathroom floor?

Are you mad because I forgot to pick our kids up from school?
Is that why you through that plate and then called me a gotdamn fool?
Track Name: River of Shit
I was walking with the devil down by a river of shit.
I asked him if this was as good as it gets.

He said "Don't expect too much, for Christ's sake you're in hell!"
He said "You couldn't of expected too much, after all your life didn't end so well!"

But don't go feeling sorry for me.
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be.
'Cause I'm low down stinky ass mother fucking son of a bitch.
Yeah, I'm low down stinky ass mother fucking son of a bitch.
