What Are We Now

length: 6:35

its a long way coming down
and you try to be so smart
but theres a hammer on your chest
and it's bound to break your heart
where's the version of yourself
the one who knew which way was up
you're gonna drink away tomorrow
with all the wrong things in your cup
but for tonight

love don't feel as light
as it did the day before
when the apple of your eye
is an oxidizing core
you'll be sighing at the moon
while you're pumping in the gas
and your hoping that tomorrow's gonna save your tired ***
but for tonight

what are we doing baby?
what are we now

so you customize that ride
then you roll it down the trail
how many times you lost control
you get surprised right of the rails
how you used to be so free
the broken bones of wear and tear
soon you're gonna
see your brothers in the graveyard of repair
but for tonight.


you go looking for the truth
where your parents hid the gold
and you found it wasn't there
now you might get wise if you get old
you can't kill your enemies
when you're running from yourself
and soon all your favorite records
are gonna be calling you from the shelf
but for tonight

To Make It Real

length: 5:41
not too much
but maybe a little
enough to touch
I wish this pill worked every time

it took this
to get that feeling
like the first kiss
in the beginning
you always shine

all this sky
all this music
floating by
one day it will be
the last time
you won't get it again

Till You lose your way
Till You lose our Face
Till You pay 10 fold
For what you used to steal
When You lose at Love
When you lose your mind
Then oh my god
you'll make it real

who are we
behind the makeup
but oneway glass
afraid to break
into a thousand shards

the moment's gone
good thing I kept it
it's on my phone
I got this captured here forevermore
but I won't see it again

my baby blue
my ocean green
that I thought was true
was just some magic carpet ride
but you can't wash out your eyes...

Till You lose your way
Till You lose your Face
Till You pay 10 fold
For what you used to steal
When You lose your Love
When you lose your mind
Then oh my god
you'll make it real

(instrumental)
bridge:
all this darkness
dressed in colored lights
Everything is wrong
But you look so damn beautiful tonight

but not Till You lose your way
Till You lose your Face
Till You pay 10 fold
For what you used to steal
When You lose your Love
When you lose your mind
Then oh my god
you'll make it real

Little Death

length: 4:07
SOMETIMES I SEE US BOTH WALKING BACK TOGETHER IN MY MIND
LIKE MAYBE, WE BOTH REALLY MISUNDERSTOOD
BUT THAT DON'T MEAN THAT WE REALLY SHOULD

NOW I'M THINKING THAT WE MISSED THAT TRAIN FOREVER AND THAT'S FINE
CUZ BABY IT WASN'T STOPPIN AT NO PLACE GOOD

I'M GONNA WRITE A SONG
GONNA CALL MY FRIENDS
GONNA FALL IN LOVE WITH THE ROAD AGAIN
GONNA WRAP MY ARMS AROUND HER WAIST

WORK ME LORD AND WASH MY SINS
GONNA FALL IN LOVE WITH THE WOODS AGAIN
FIX THAT SORRY SHAPE IM IN OH YEAH

NOBODY EVER GETS TO GO BACK TROUGH THE WINDOW OF TIME IT'S CRAZY
BUT THAT DON'T STOP US FROM TRYING IN VAIN

A LITTLE DEATH IT DOESN'T KILL US AFTER ALL
IT'S FINE WHEN YOU AINT THERE
YOU AINT THERE TO FEEL ALL THAT PAIN

I Won’t Run

length: 4:18
i could get used to texas
get a job
go work for your dad
You know he's not a drunk
he just makes the wine look bad

you hit me in my solar plexus
IÂ swear on my guitar
my 135
you can hang me by the strings
but I'm never gonna leave your side

Chorus:
well don't you go thinking
that i was ever lying
i might be a fool but i aint dumb
do you remember when your old world left your crying
i said i won't break your heart and i won't run

My face is only for mothers
but i age better than wood
and i got the right hands
and baby they work so good

i know that man left you broken
and the scar he put on your lip
is starring back at you
if you ever need to jump this ship

Honey in the Morning

length: 6:24
you said you wanted space
so i gave you montana
and i gave you more than half of my bread
all these lines that make your face
sometimes i wish they didn't matter wish they didn't matter
but i draw them every night in my head

i never slept good on your one person mattress
but i miss your broken lamp made of shells
theres only 10 percent of me that really hates that you're a grifter
most of me is under your spell

riding through the desert
on a camel walking backwards
looking for the truth in your eyes
nothing i wouldn't trade here
for a cold drink water
except the ocean between your thighs

i know that you're re a runner
but i was hoping that i wasn't right
honey in the morning
Turn to poison by tomorrow night

I should be on a white horse
but I drank too much potion
now I'm sleeping on the kitchen floor
i wanna hold you so close
in cinematic slow motion
now you're gunning for an open door

now it goes without saying
that the future's uncertain
when you get tired
you just blow out the spark
how you gonna know love
if you can't remove the curtain
you know the devil only wins in the dark

Married to the Lord

length: 3:53
aint nobody gonna take me
for an angel i'm only flying with the crows while all the saints are sleeping in heaven
i wanna be down on the alter
takin' off your clothes

i don't wanna get you lost in my religion i don't wanna be a stone hand me the keys
we won't live forever
i don't wanna drive you crazy
i just wanna drive you home

I know you're thinking that you cannot surrender Without selling out your soul
If holy water won't keep us together I'm gonna find out what you love and I'm gonna put it in the bowl

So you see a vision in the sky
Are you really gonna let that holy moment pass you by?
Oh you got me wondering

I know you're feeling like you've known love before me I know you'd like to cut the cord
Don't fly so high before I can touch you
I need your body before
You get married to the Lord

Gabriel

length: 3:46
I know you're tired but our hands are in the fire
This ain't no time for dreaming
you're gonna snap that cosmic wire
We'll go crashing from the ceiling
you'll be crying, you'll be kneeling
you'll be wasted away
Your angel doesn't work for free anymore

Oh angel Gabriel I hear what you're saying
i used to work for love
Now I I don't know just what I'm paying for
Could it really be that river I see
cannot take me home anymore

Now before you shoot down the sun
Before you conjure up the thunder
there must be some piece of gold
Some kind of Magic little number
You won't get so high if you keep asking why
That's the price at the top of chain
There's only one way to fit through the door

Oh angel Gabriel you stick in like a sliver
but I only got one heart and such an underrated liver
now go back to your boss
tell him I'm happy I've lost
And I can't wait to get back to the blues

Squid Tattoo

length: 4:31
I've been up too late in this dive bar
I dipped the wrong song into alcohol
Now I love you
But I can't believe you're from ohio

I love your squid tattoo
I love the way you live
I love your black lipstick that you're speaking with
Yeah you strike me as the right kind of crazy

And with this cold dark beer in my hand tonight
I'm gonna spin this room I'm gonna change my life
I'm just waiting for you to raise one of your eyebrows

If you could see just who I was
The second before
I fell hard into your doorway
Now I don't wanna kill your buzz
But baby I was losing so damn hard going the wrong way
oh baby there's something bout your way I can understand

Let's go to north Caroline
Get a cabin there
Sleep in the woods at night
By the shade of your hair
I can only see the future
In this moment

Or maybe go to live with the urban class
Buy a big brownstone
We could stain the glass
We could live off all my music
And your paintings

Tornado Head

length: 5:46
Here we go again, Tornado Head
Your little pink house was meant for firewood instead
Here we go again, Tornado Head
And there's no place left for you to run

How did this turn get so taken for the worse
And all the sweet notes cover bitter ones at first
Here we go again, Tornado Head
And there's no place left for you to hide

You surround me in my favorite chair
You try to drown me when I comb my hair
I close my eyes again but you don't care
You love to remind me that you're always there
I look around, my friends are gone
The sky took back my roof
And the water here, I can't trust
Only the whisky tells the truth

Here we go again, Tornado Head
What was in the ether is now back on your bed
Here we go again, Tornado Head
And there's no space left for you to rest

You surround me in my favorite chair
You try to drown me when I comb my hair
I close my eyes again but you don't care
You love to remind me that you're always there
I look around, my friends are gone
The sky took back my roof
And the water here, I can't trust
Only the whisky tells the truth

Rabbit Hole

length: 4:47
the ol black hole's a comin'
You just start digging
Now you're onto something

and you
can't put your finger on it
when you do
that's when you don't want it

but you're
not coming to your senses
you don't care what the sign on the fence says

and you
almost took the gold
when your flashlight batteries just went cold

whoa I looked everywhere
you sent me down the rabbit hole
whoa I looked everywhere
but I only got his foot
then I let him go

where's the bad tone
and the good distortion
it's not the right feel
not the right proportion

I'm so
bored of this fake talking
looking for something for my mind
to walk in

I got this
perfect imperfection
the right face
with the wrong reflection

and I almost took the gold
but these flashlight batteries just went cold

whoa I looked everywhere
you sent me down the rabbit hole
whoa I looked everywhere
but I only got his foot
then I let him go

the sun and my sweat are flirting
I tried to clean up
ah but nothing's working

I'm a
blind mole
cutting through the ground
You'd think I'd find my way
or be in China now

and I almost took the gold
but these flashlight batteries just went cold

whoa I looked everywhere
you sent me down the rabbit hole
whoa I looked everywhere
but I only got his foot
then I let him go
