Track Name: Uncertain
Wake up to that same old ache this morning
Been naggin' at me every night
It's one more pill to try to keep the pain at bay
But just can't curb this appetite
And it's a new realization
That's coming round this winding bend yeah
This soul in need of saving won't rise to the occasion
When the road were on comes to an end

Truth it always hits you without warning
You can try to keep it down but it's
Gonna keep on hangin' round cause I'm

Uncertain, if I'll make it through this day
Uncertain, how to dance these blues away
How to dance these blues away, Uncertain
Uncertain

Pushing closer to the one in front of you
And push the needle to the red
Cross the line and see what you have fought for
Then it hits you like a ton of lead
But it's a cold comfort
Skimming through the words that some prophet said well
The doors are locked and the fire it is burning
When you find that we have been misled

Truth it always hits you without warning
You can try to keep it down but it's
Gonna keep on hangin' round cause I'm

Uncertain, if I'll make it through this day
Uncertain, how to dance these blues away
How to dance these blues away, Uncertain
Uncertain
Track Name: Other Side
At the feeling of contact when we recognize
But I do it all over till I am par-a-lized
With the realization that this is who I am
Re-living the tales from the poison pen

Unconsummated and still it keeps me jaded just can't deny
Well it's come to an end, hope I don't see you again
If I make it to the other side

One good turn deserves another
Makes you dizzy after-a-while
Tell the story one more time and make it real
Didn't matter then
Does it matter to you now?

Well the fever is stead, but it doesn't break
Knowing that you give but losing track of what-you-take
The cup it is empty though you try to fill
Then you bring me another better clean up the spill

Unconsummated and still it keeps me jaded just can't deny
Well it's come to an end, hope I don't see you again
If I make it to the other side

So we share a situation, ain't so hard to see just how
'Cause now I've got eyes in the back of my head
And they're turning around, since you've been coming down
Track Name: Back Home
Wander through this place, cotton is your lace
Holding tighter, drifting deeper
Prophet, teacher, just won't reach her
Sitting on this fence since she's got no sense
All this eloquence just can't lead you home

Whispering this prayer to an empty stare
Searching, waiting
Bending, breaking
Guiding, leading
Slowly bleeding
Still I stay right here
Through dust that does not clear
A touch becomes a smear when I try to lead you home

No one else can hold this cross you bear
Love that vanishes into the air
No way to get back home

Letters I don't write
Can't although I might
All this giving
Never winning
Waiting, wanting
Grasping, haunting
So this Is how it ends with solace we invent
From angels never sent
To lead your way back home
To take you home
Track Name: Rejected
See a lawdy little mama with the hair so long, got a checkered black shirt and her curtains are drawn

Looking right now she got a glimpse of me, saw the curl of a smile from up around this tree

But when I call her name and say it good and clean
She locks the door again and shatters all my dreams

Since she has rejected
Since she has rejected
Since she has rejected
That notion

Went and got myself a big stack o' meat, been layin' in the back of the shed and rottin' for weeks

Got a toy in my pocket and its gathering rust
Been sittin' for a month and I'm thinkin' its ready to bust

But when it's time for me to try it on for size
I turn around and see those catatonic eyes

Since you have rejected
Since you have rejected
Since you have rejected
That notion

Stickin' in my mind what I thought you said
Can't feel no heartbeat in a love gone dead
Stickin' in my mind what I thought you said
Can't feel a heartbeat in a love gone dead
Stickin' in my mind what I thought you said
Can't feel a heartbeat in a love gone dead
Hang by a thread

Got a hundred pound monkey layin' on my back
Can't set her off loose till I got off this track
My wheel's just rusted got 'em painted all black
Yea I'm working for a mansion, got a shot gun shack

So when I ask you to come home and be all mine
You send a look to me that boggles up my mind

Since you have rejected
Since you have rejected
Since you have rejected
That notion
Track Name: After All
Fireworks along the wall, we gather as they lay asleep
Never give a single thought to the ragged company we keep
Hold onto a memory and color it your own
Colors that will fade for some
When the gentle tongue'll break the bone
Feel the waves move and the spray that they're sending
In the Summer that was never ending

Rollin down the twenty-four when I first got the call
Face down and all alone in nothing but your overalls
Losing those around you and building up that wall
Whisper underneath your breath
That we're only human after all
Rejecting those that tried to save you
In this chemical haze you cling to

Hanging every day by the skin of your teeth
Never let 'em see the face that you have buried underneath
Got it figured out, should have thought before you spoke
Knowing now that one man's pain is another one's joke
And the only thing to dull all this anger
Is the echo of the hollow click
When you find an empty chamber

La la la la la, la la la
Track Name: Creek Flow
Tracing out the footsteps of the minds that stretch but never reach dry land
Water level rising, ever higher
Fills the lines that crease your hands

Follow closely, it can lead you down
Floating slowly through this lonely town

Lost in the creek flow
Feel the pull of the undertow
Lost in the creek flow
Losing your grip but you're standing your ground
You coldly stand by as you're watching another soul drown

Fear is the trick that can blind you or lead back home
Trembling limbs kick and flail in the depths of the will that's broken

Time passes slowly for the man who carries sins he can't atone
Fighting with the current as the others here that choose to swim alone

Growing murky, it will slow you down
Muddy waters drag you to the ground

Lost in the creek flow
Feel the pull of the undertow
Lost in the creek flow
Losing your grip but you're standing your ground
You coldly stand by as you're watching another soul drown
Track Name: All I See
Going up your thighs was a suicide ride so now it's plain to see
I couldn't help but try when the look that's in your eyes said the road was clear and free

But just like the one that came before me and the one that's coming soon
Heard the music that you made with the notes you couldn't take for the love that never grew

You say it's coming around
Coming around
Coming around
Coming around

All I see is more lies coming
All I need is the truth from you but it's never coming through so it's time to set you free

Going down again to your lucifer's den; gonna give it just another try
But the fool who doesn't learn just a gonna get burned, smack you right between the eyes

Aint no use in cryin' bout the apples on the vine and the juice that you've gotta taste
Just punch another ticket cause we're never gonna get it, 'nother soul that's gone to waste

You say it's coming around
Coming around
Coming around
Coming around

All I see is more lies coming
All I need is the truth from you but it's never coming through so it's time to set you free
Track Name: You Lose
The silver spoon that feeds
Grows discolored and stale like the air that they breathe for you
Watching his conscience fail
It's a hollow grail
Wrapped in jewels that can't color this truth

Makes you feel alive
Unencumbered by
This mundane path you run through
Like a crack in the stone you can find your own time and place
Far from those who aren't free

You've got changes comin' round
I can't make them for you
Don't break while your feelin' down
When you show your hand you lose

Thinking of friends gone past but it could not last as the toughest of sheens will wear through
When the spell is cast, the smoke it clears fast leaving dusty remains of this youth

And it's lying there with a grin that glares
No desire to appease or amuse
So we gather our sticks to set fire to the wicks that we've settled for in place of the fuse

And it gets so heavy now
Just can't shake these blues
Don't open your heart to them
'Cause when you show your hand you lose
Track Name: Bad Way
On the night that we first met, surely wasn't fun
I was quite the sight to see, going fall down drunk
Didn't know just what it was that made you stick around
I just knew that you held me up at a time I was feelin' down
Now I've tried to set things right since you have come into my life

I can't always keep it together despite the price I pay
But with you there to help me, we both kneel down and pray
And I thank the lord above for the guidance that you gave
Ever since you found me in a bad way
You found me, you found me

Ever since I've turned around you haven't been the same
No purpose in your life and I'm the one to blame
Cause the thing you used to save me
Is the thing you use to chain me
Your heart's the loaded gun that's ready to take aim
There's something that just ain't right since you've come into my life

Looking for the joker in this loaded deck you played
Since it's come to my attention you don't love me anyway
Funny how you think it's fine to run and go astray
Just because you found me in a bad way
It's over, It's over

Keeping up this two step is an empty dance for one
The clever crow who goes for more just ends up having none
Cause the thing that gets my goat and will set this flare alight
Is the way you call out another man's name
When we're rolling in the night; It ain't right

Looking for the joker in this loaded deck you played
Since it's come to my attention you don't love me anyway
Funny how you think it's fine to run and go astray
Just because you found me in a bad way
It's over; It's over
Track Name: Forest For The Trees
On that day you knocked me cold, floored me to the bone
Since then my world has come undone
But I was invisible as I watched you head back home
Knowing that I'm not the only one

When that bitter chill comes rollin' through this town again
Marks another year gone that you've left my soul on a shelf
Losing the fight but thinking that I'm coming back to contend
While you're giving all your love to someone else

My, my, it's a crime and it's a real bad way to be
When you look so good but you're looking right through me
I've crawled along that desert and I've sailed across that sea
But you just won't look, just won't look
Look to see the forest for the trees

Well hold on now, hold on, this is not the plan you see
How we got to here is the greatest of mysteries
I had plans for the two of us, can't you hear my plea
Living out a love that'll go down in history

So it is my workday week has come and gone
Heading to the joint by the Bristol County line
Not much going right for me at all these days
But I'm grindin', yes I'm grindin'

My, my, it's a crime and it's a real bad way to be
When you look so good but you're looking right through me
I've crawled along that desert and I've sailed across that sea
But you just won't look, just won't look
Look to see the forest for the trees
