Track Name: Fiends
I'm a fiend, a fiend.
A goddamn manifesting machine.
I've always taken everything.
A monster beneath the sea.
You dream of your queen in peace.
I dream of your queen in pieces.
So let the hurricane come devastate
and bring you to your knees.

Sway, sway, in the river you used to play.
Sway, sway, and float away.

Your lack of trust,
Makes the ocean look like a pond.
You're a pawn.
Smaller than the spider crawling up your jaw.
I'll send waves in form of floods
Turning all you know to mud.
Leaving everything to rust.
So let the hurricane come devastate and bring you to your knees.

When the nightmare stops,
I'll be there.
I'll be there.
Track Name: A Billion Brazilians
Can you think
Can you think
Of someone other than yourself?
Actually, just you think
Of someone coming inside your house.
Taking everything you love.
Because of the god above.
We as people, don't consider anybody but ourselves.

Just wait and see.
It's genocide
And it's plaguing peoples' minds.

A firing squad
A firing squad
Would have nothing left on this.
Your truce is like the hangman's noose,
That's wrapped around my neck.
In the comfort of your night
You'll fight through
To capture all these lies.
We as people, don't consider anything else but our lies.

Just wait and see.
It's genocide
And it's plaguing peoples' minds.
Track Name: Shine
When you lost your motivation
And this devastating patience
Pulls you down, down
Lower than you've ever been before.
And you cannot help to think
That someone's out to get you.
When the day takes a break,
It turns to night.

No matter what they say.
They'll never know your fate.
Tonight you shine.

You have to shine.
Just look inside yourself.
Remember who you are
And what you did.

Brighter than the lights
Putting panic in this night.
And you cannot help to think it's time.
Track Name: Duck and Cover
Wrap your fingers around this.
Gathered inside rooms.
Only to discuss
When and where all this was going down.
A better question would be "How?"
How do we decide
To exit town
With all these cops around?

I can tell you
I have seen some things
I assure you
I have done some things

Make it science or not.
I'm coming back for that money.

Red and blue lights
Flashing in my rearview mirror.
There's no time.
Time to figure all this out.
We gotta drive, drive.
Forget all of this shit
And leave it all behind.
Passing Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Mexico.

I can tell you
I have seen some things
I assure you
I have done some things

Make it science or not.
I'm coming back for that money.
Track Name: Whiskey Talk
I'm staying up all night.
Just to see the light
Fall into your eyes.
You rose
Like a Phoenix
Out of the ashes.
You gave me your love.
I couldn't get enough.

I'm waiting.
Waiting.
For you
And you
And your love.

You let me pause.
Just for a cause.
Get back on top of you
As we wrap ourselves in sheets.
Sheets, I only make for you.
Excluding all the lines
As I feel those thighs
I'll never forget that night.

I'm waiting.
Waiting.
For you
And you
And your love.
Track Name: Microphone Jones
You can find me
In the corner
Singing Saves The Day.
Always wrapped up
In the corner
Just me and all my friends.
And I'm sorry
We never decided
To go to college
But somehow, we will pay our homage.

Do you remember?
All the cigarettes we used to smoke.
All the times that we were broke
Telling stories over 40s.
Just laughing until we froze
With everyone we know.
All the friendly interventions
That I have failed to mention.
Track Name: Georgia
Driving with my eyes closed tonight.
Lights off on an icy road.
Not a bit of fear
In my voice
So turn the lghts down low.
We shine for miles.
Taking all the right turns.
And we're never coming back
Because we have to stay on track.
Stay on track.

Living like this isn't safe
But it's all we know.
Voices whisper in the wind
Like thoughts we never said.
Georgia is calling me back home
But playing my guitar
Is the only thing I know.

Driving from state to state.
Our eyes glued to the pavement.
Maybe for a second.
Maybe for a second.
All I know is moments like this end
And never happen again.
Again.

Living like this isn't safe
But it's all we know.
Voices whisper in the wind
Like thoughts we never said.
Georgia is calling me back home
But playing my guitar
Is the only thing I know.

Living like this isn't safe
But it's all we know.

It's all you know.
It's all I know.
It's all we both know.
We both know.
Track Name: James Duchantreau
So let the waves come crashing in
Bring a fire storm
For him
And all his friends.

Send him to the salty bottom
Where no one knows his name.

Row for the shore.

James Duchantreau is one hell of a man.
He got in a bar fight
And he lost his hand.
We raise our glasses
To Captain and man
Cause this might be the last time
That we honor them.

So let the waves come crashing in
Bring a fire storm
For him
And all his friends.

Send him to the salty bottom
Where no one knows his name.
Make friends with all the fishes.
They like the company.

Row for the shore.

Send him to the salty bottom
Where no one knows his name.
