Track Name: My Oh My
Well gather 'round all you broken men
If you didn't make a dollar you can do it again
Out in the sun that shines
My oh my
Some days I want to die
'Cause there ain't no use to cry
Lay down to die

Martha my dear I'll tell ya right here
Our lives will be different by the end of the year

I've been working my whole life
My oh My
To get a piece of pie
Let's give it one more try
One more try

I got no luck, I got no plan,
If I can't feed my family then I am not a man

As the train goes on by
While Martha dear she cries
My oh my
She's fed up with my lies
With my lies

Amos was his name and his partner he was Dade
They built this whole town and burnt it down all the same

'Cause this living is a game
Better to burn it down today
'Cause there is no other way
At least that's what they say
No other way

Well gather 'round all you broken men
If you didn't make a dollar you can do it again

Out in the sun that shines
My oh my
Some days I want to die
'Cause there ain't no use to cry
Lay down to die
Track Name: Tin Foil Hat
Shadow's in the alley that I can't see
Pouring from the corner, then passing right through me
Layers of time, move layers of time
The cast and the players spin the combination

No one to trust, nowhere you can hide
The chill in my spine shivers through the night
The man on the line speaks in rewind
We know all your secrets we known all your lies

This mirror on the wall is not what it seems
The spooks and handlers lead you through the evening
Are these scenes all by design
A layer to a plan to enslave the whole world wide

Paranoid awareness of mind
They organize the plan but elude to define
Consciously we pull at the strings
Lean on your psyche the ends to our means

False flags fly and skeptics deny
Emotions being played by misinformation
All around here we take your ideas
Use them to discredit opposition

No one to trust nowhere you can hide
The chill in my spine shivers through the night
The man on the line speaks in rewind
We know all your secrets we know all your lies
Track Name: Hounds of Autumn
Right around the corner
The Hounds of Autumn
And they’re coming to chase and tear me down
The colors are changing and rearranging
And it certainly brings brings me down

It covers my mind it covers my head
And I don’t know what day it is
It reminds me of something or somebody else
Or something that you said

I cant breathe
I ought to leave
We just cant see it, see it through
The door swings open and now I'm soaking
But I know that you feel it, feel it too

The rain ain't your friend but I know
It depends if its falling down on me
You’re falling off into infinity, hope these hounds won't

Get me hypnotized
As I lie outstretched
In a field of my debris
The blades of grass pierce my skin
Through the veins of an autumn, autumn bleed

Wont travel down this jaded line
But its staring back at me
I've fallen off into infinity, these hounds wont let me be

Right around the corner
The hounds of autumn
Chased me down, November roads
The colors have changed into empty pages
All these memories won't let me be

The rain ain't your friend but I know
It depends if its falling down on me
We’re falling off into infinity as we fall away into debris, into debris, into debris
Noooooooooooooooooooooo!
Track Name: Big Top
You and I have undermined the negativity,
That lies between the dreams that we so often dare see.

We run around this silly town searching for a way.
The way we would the way we should if we could today.

Big top in a one ring world,
Bigger times all but sublime to this little girl

If we knew all we wanted to tomorrow see no sun.
For all the joy in living life is there in what’s to come.

Underneath the starry carpet, upon this stable ground,
We run around and settle down and we can reach the sky.

Big top in a one ring world,
Bigger times all but sublime to this little girl
Track Name: Saint Mistake
With voices sweet in summer, we give it another shot
I never meant to hurt you, while explaining all I've got
It's not that I'm complaining or left with desperate choices
I only wish to have you in a world filled with voices

Keeping up the pace, saying that you'll stay
Take my hand, take me away
Just like I've always read
Don't call me a saint
This one needs to be saved
From all that he has made
A wonder he never prays
He just keeps making mistakes

So much has been broken, we'll need another clock
The lines have been written, the pages have been lost
I feel like I'm falling and I need you here to help me
I'm drifting on this ocean, I need you here with me

Chorus
Keeping up the pace, saying that you'll stay
Take my hand, take me away
Just like I've always read
Don't call me a saint
This one needs to be saved
From all that he has made
A wonder he never prays
He just keeps making mistakes
Track Name: Inside
Inside
And glowing
All knowing
And engaged
Holy
And devoting
Total beauty
On display
Awaken
And be taken
On a journey
From within
See me
Walk up to me
Leap inside me
Fill the void
Displacement
No anger
A place set
For a stranger
Each night
With the stars bright
And the moonlight
In the trees
They gamble
While they stumble
Twisting into
Deep Despair
In our bottles
We have toppled
Now we're crippled
Crawling home
To fears
Soft and soothing
All alluding
Paradise
Out of darkness
Comes forgiveness
And the healing
Creates a flame
Now the truth's lit
But behind it
All around it
Screams a voice
Track Name: Desert of When
Can't you hear me anymore
The sun is rising once more
The call is all I know
So I think about all I know

Sweet, sweet memories invade
A rhyme will lead the way

I hope it won't be long but I'm so far gone that helps to think this way
I know it's always something that leads me close to nothing but I guess I better stay

So each time
We breathe with
The wind
It blows us down the path
So it's time
To get up
Again
I hope the past is ours to ride
High
And give up
Some sin
We'll do it over again
We ride
Through the desert
Of when
Life is just a flash in time
