Slumber 02:26
All that I see are just ashes and ghosts. Little devil's on your back again and everybody needs a dose. Oh, But the pain I feel it comes when the sun goes down. I was out laughing. You're running all around town. When I get my slumber, I pray that I don't dream. 'Cause it's too much for me to bear all the things I see. My friend I have lost my way and I am all alone. There's so much I cannot tell you over the phone. Oh and I know you felt long gone too. But, I jut can't seem to get my mind off you. When the pain of staying is greater than I pain too leave. I was out laughing. You were fighting just to breathe. When I get my slumber, pray that I don't dream. Because its too much for me to bare all the things I see. She said he is gone now and will hurt no more. He was so scared for you will you run or come home?

I've been looking for ways to make you hate me. I've done all the wrong that I can do. I know that you don't wanna leave me wastin'. But, I'm so scared darlin' that I'll hurt you too . (chorus) Well, I'm not the person that you think that I am. And I sweat some day you'll forget about me. Now I've been drinking and thinking about what to do. And oh darling, I've gotta say goodbye to you. Oh, I got these sins they are all a'weighin'. But, my burden is all of my own. when I'm craving bedlam and a lonely coffin will the trees on morgan's kill still bend to and fro. (chorus) Well, I'm not the person that you think that I am. And I sweat some day you'll forget about me. Now I've been drinking and thinking about what to do. and oh darling, I don't wanna say goodbye to you. (repeat)

Salvation 03:07
Someone call the doctor, someone call the priest. This guy is shaking like a leaf. With a high power of persuasion and a ghost living in his head. He might be better off dead. He has lied like he breathes. He said all this is temporary. Your salvation is now ashes in the leaves. If the things he does they are wrong and the tales he tells are tall, why does he even speak at all? So he bought himself a quart to keep the sadness away, he cant seem to face each new day. He has lied like he breathes. He said all this is temporary. Your salvation is now ashes in the leaves. It was nine men to the graveyard, only eight men coming back. Hope he had more good days than bad. I went to the river, I knelt to pray. Let this water wash me clean. He has lied like he breathes. He said all this is temporary. Your salvation is now ashes in the leaves.

Take A Punch 02:41
Those little mistakes, they come for me. I hear the ice crack and I feel my blood freeze. Maybe you can save my life, if I just ask nice. Maybe if I just beg on my knees...... (chorus) But, There ain't nothing easy about knowing you played it wrong, wishing you had made it right just once. And there ain't no kind of happy in singing sad sad songs, just wishing that you could take a punch. So, I medicate with some pretty thing. I dream that she could fly me away if only those sheets were wings. Maybe she could save my life, if i sweetly weep. Maybe if I sweat and bleed...... (chorus) I feel it getting away. If I was better or kinder then. If I knew the words to say, maybe I'd call a friend. (chorus)

Nobody Knows 04:11
Looks like I'm under water again. I don't think I'm coming up this time. For a while there I knew I'd get pushed in. But all I did was salt the seas with my crying. (chorus) So I just let go. Exhale real slow. I don't know what to do. But, nobody knows. Should have listened to all the things that you told me. Should have prepared myself for a rainy day. But, now the flood's come. I don't think I'm floating. I can't see land. I guess it all washed away. (chorus) I don't know just what I got in my lungs or in my heart. With no one to ask for forgiveness for what I've done so far. Someday on a distant shore they'll find what's left of me. They'll be surprised when they realize that somehow, I learned to breath. Just don't let go. Inhale real slow. You'll learn what to do. 'Cause nobody knows.

I heard what you left unsaid. When you acted like it didn't mean a thing. You kept his name right out of your mouth then you joke of engagement rings. Somehow, I'm supposed to say there's no harm and there's no foul. And believe that you'd never act on that schoolyard crush anyhow. (chorus) 'Cause when you've had too many you'll make eyes, run your hands through his hair, throw your arms around him and drink from his cup. a little piece of us passes away and all I ever do. All I ever do is care. It's not unreasonable to love you with my everything. But, when I see how he looks at you, it's hard not to feel lied to so, my heart begins to sink. (chorus) I'm not sure just what to do when I feel this red shade of blue. I wish I could find a way to care a little less for you. (chorus)
