Black Stones (free) 03:22
Black Stones 
 V: I’ve been waiting for the time The world tips over on its side As cars and dust slip past our heads I’ll reach you Where the red moon meets the ocean bed I’ll reach you 
 C: All the messes that we make Wounds we leave, the hits we take, The sky red with open sores From black stones 
 V: The locusts’ hum inside our ears the bedroom hot with ash and tears There is no safe way out of here to reach you I hope you know that I tried to reach you 
 C: All the messes that we make Wounds we leave, the hits we take, This love isn’t healing though It’s the end times puppet show 
 B: Let’s keep each other close But not for love or faith or hope To make sure we both go down together 
 V: When fires burn us to the bone We’re the ones who break our homes We’re the ones left all alone Out of reach 
 C: All the messes that we make Wounds we leave, the hits we take, This love isn’t healing though It’s the end times puppet show

Sailing 04:41
Sailing What do you do when the words don’t come? When the moon goes down and the wine is gone? Do you cry yourself to sleep while sucking on your thumb? What do you do when the words don’t come? What do you do when love grows cold? Do you give, go home, or just get old? And the ring around your finger looks less and less like gold What do you do when love grows cold? C: Jesus, carry us over this ocean Jesus, glade beside us over the sea To where forgiveness, like waves' sweet motion Wakes us from sleep and blood drops make us free What do you do when your cross gets too hard to bear? And your fists fly like bullets spinning in the air? And it feels like the Father and Holy Ghost don’t care What do you do when your cross gets too hard to bear? Lord, this cross is getting pretty hard to bear.

Walker, Jesus Ranger Where you going with that big fat head of yours? (Can't keep yourself still) Must have an iron spine and a heart of gold (Can’t stop those shifty feet) How do you keep it balanced there? (Don’t sneak up like that) Is it full of devils or full of air? “Sorry for your hurt,” you said (I’m sorry too, I’m sorry too) So sorry for your aching head (Jesus is just alright with you) Please tell me how I ought to be (As long as he’s beneath your shoe) You always said you never liked me PRECHORUS What's your game, Walker? Silver tongue, red hand for the win? Saying to yourself  CHORUS I'm better I'm better I'm so much better than you (2x)

St. Peter holds out his lily-robed hand the saint move to clap the angels demand a marionette dance and a beautiful song (x3) when you stare at me with opaline eyes your lips frame a breath you beg me to lie in kisses and vows and beautiful songs (x3) the needle meets with the shadowy groove the magnets concuss I finally move and spin softly through this beautiful song (x3)

Trigger Happy Here’s the wind flashing through the streets, here’s the ice splashing in your drink Here’s that secret you meant to keep, here’s the eye you used to wink Here’s the dance that was in your feet, here’s your glass breaking on the floor Here’s the heart that used to beat, your tongue’s like a pistol wanting more Don’t be so trigger happy, don’t be so trigger happy You say you’ll always need someone To love while talking through a gun You say you’ll always need someone To love while talking through a gun I can't make you happy This won't make you happy You’ve said some biting, acid things, no forgiveness, no admission Here’s to melting down your ring, for giving you new ammunition Don’t be so trigger happy, don’t be so trigger happy You say you’ll always need someone To love while talking through a gun You say you could use some space Some day this will blow up in your face

Johnny Beats Me Every Time That woman’s like a queen She skips around the tiles Wears a long, silk black skirt And a smile like a child’s But she’s not so innocent Won’t want to hold your hand Leaves halfway through playing chess ‘Cause she prefers Candyland C: A good woman is hard to find Johnny beats me every time A good woman is hard to find Johnny beats me every time I think it’s time I quit this game You can try, I know you’ll fail She’s a pearl lain in your hand Once you close your fingers She’s jumped and on the lam Yeah, good love is so hard to find Bein’ lonely’s just never kind I’d like to say that I don’t mind But I do

V: Time never heals Old scars, fresh wounds You said you wouldn't change Not to save me, not to keep me You left me on the floor I wasn't what you were looking for   C: I was made for so much more Than who you said I could be I was made for so much more   V: Did you think that you could own me? Did you think that I would stay? Your nails dug deep when you pushed me away You wouldn't release until I bled You left me on the floor I wasn't what you were looking for   C: I was made for so much more Than who you said I could be I was made for so much more I am not your trinket You can't place me on your shelf I was made for so much more   B: Now I'm thinking clear I see all I'd missed before Does your conscience bother you After all this time?
