Track Name: out on 17th
out on 17th (hensley)
we walked and talked out on 17th down in nashville, you spoke of dreams between you and me and told me that you had to run, i'll never forget that i was bigger than myself down in nashville and i had hoped and prayed there would never come a day that this would fade away, dont fade away; keeps you running! run!
Track Name: it took
it took (hensley)
tragedy’s all that i know, black ash falls for the snow, there’s a point to this, worthlessnessi plant a seed in the field, what will it yield, when there’s no sun shining down, sun! shine! my visions caving in, burning, bubbling red skin, i’m frightened, i’m scared, effervescing thoughts of despair, i plant a seed in the field, what will it yield, when there’s no sun
shining down, sun! shine! ...so sad just to see its come to this!
Track Name: try too hard
try too hard (hensley)
i get the strangest feeling whenever you’re around, and i guess i’ll just keep reeling, until you pull me in, a thread that you conceal behind batting and bashful eyes, i guess i just try too hard, then you’ll come back and jump in my lap, have you no clue, of what’s to come or what you’ve done, you’re deserving of the heartache you feel, it never mattered when we were just friends, you had me at hand, but then again i guess i just try too hard i hope the way i flow, would sync up with you, together we’d span space and time, if only you’d follow through, a mind can be too free and lose its way wafting on the breeze, so when it finally lands lost at sea, rest assured, there’s no way ashore, you sink, you sink (i swear to god i’ll hate you forever)...ive lost track of the time we spent, but i appreciate how much you said they meant but now it’s shit, and it never mattered when we were just friends, you had me at hand, your attempt at trying, it was crying, yeah i believe you’re upset, you gave up and gave in, so that maybe you would never have to try too hard.
Track Name: spirits even further
spirits even further (heck)
...and the truth would be much better, than walking in slack jawed and bitter, and taking spirits even further, towards downward spiral level quitter now, determination and commitment, shouldn’t be replaced with being complacent, so struggle now in this moment and stop being your biggest opponent, and knowing that you’re mistreated, and feeling
that you’ve been cheated, and knowing that you’re defeated, you self professed loser, so uncompleted now.
Track Name: knots and tangled things
knots and tangled things (hensley/heck)
it's you, tied up on a string, in knots and tangled things, and i can't loosen them, without my hands unbound, a light inside of me, it shines on, despite the words you say, you're proved wrong, latch on to everything close to me, it's lonesome and tiring, and i can afford somehow, this diatribe i've saved, to cut these stitches and burn these bridges...and i can't take this, your constant bitching, and i can't take my indecision, it's draining me to the brink of full collapse and hopelessness! ...your guiding light blinds me! and i'll wait for you, if you wait for me but sometimes things aren't meant to be.
