Track Name: The Flood
The Flood
It doesn’t feel like I won the war
When all I see is everything I’ve lost

When the rain hits hard you forgive it
If your course stays true don’t believe it
When the day breaks you will re-build it
And the flood will take what you leave here

Cutting teeth on a broken floor
What they want isn’t what they know

When the rain hits hard you forgive it
If your course stays true don’t believe it
When the day breaks you will re-build it
And the flood will take what you leave here
Track Name: The Wolf That Cried Boy
The Wolf That Cried Boy
I never got you back now I owe you one
No I never got you back
I never clawed you back now I owe you

It’s a sentiment that’s in your gut
It’s a sentiment that’s in your blood
It’s a sentiment the wolf don’t know

I’ve never cried wolf, no never
But when I cry man you’d better hide

I know i’m coming back for another one
I know i’m coming back
I never clawed you back now I owe you

Now who’s winning - you’ll soon find out
Now who’s lying - you’ll soon find out
Now who’s crying - you’ll soon find out
Track Name: I Remain
I Remain
Giving but I’ve give enough
Maybe I’m just missing something
Waiting but it’s way too much
When I fall it’s never forwards

Do you ever come back, when nothing really goes away
Will I ever learn that, I am here and I remain

Why couldn’t find any fight like I found before
Why couldn’t find any fight like I found before

I am here and I remain
I am here and I remain

One of us has lost their way
And one of us has found their hate
But two of us won’t walk away
Track Name: Fire
Fire
I can save myself
I don’t need no-body’s help
I see you can’t hold that tune
Their taking all of it from you

Didn’t I find the fire
Didn’t I find the fire
I never will want for one more
I never will - save my song
Just save my song

These colours ain’t themselves
But there the ones their gonna sell
You want black you got the blue
They changed the shade they changed the hue

Didn’t I find the fire
Didn’t I find the fire
I never will want for one more
I never will - save my song
Just save my song

The soldiers of the chord have fought and lost the war
The soldiers of the song have the bullets but no guns

You can’t find a fire, you’ve got to make it burn, make it burn
You can’t find a fire, you’ve got to make it burn, make it burn, make it
Track Name: Trouble
Trouble
Oh lord now the war won’t let me, let me find the peace inside me
Oh lord no the law won’t let me, let me leave the thief behind me

Now I see trouble, all in black
When you hit the ground there’s no coming back
Now I see trouble, his teeth are cracked
He’s smiling now, I don’t stand a chance

Nah Nah - All of this trouble is one thing or another
Nah Nah - All of this bother I just keep finding trouble

Oh lord now the cause won’t let me, let me fight the few behind me
Oh lord now my eyes wont let me, see how blind that I have made me

Now I see trouble, all in black
When you hit the ground there’s no coming back
Now I see trouble, his teeth are cracked
He’s smiling now, I don’t stand a chance

Nah Nah - All of this trouble is one thing or another
Nah Nah - All of this bother I just keep finding trouble

Crying in the rain doesn’t hide the salt
Lying through your teeth doesn’t crack a smile
And you know the shame always wanting more
Do you feel the same now you brought it home

Do I know sulphur when I do not pay
Doing it over again and again
Do I not suffer when I do no pain
Doing it over again and again
Track Name: In Time
In Time
I’ve been longing for so long
Now the red hand holds the poet’s tongue
Bathe it in the flood
Truly tasting all the water

In time all the fools will fall
In time all the seas are shore
In time every song is silent

I’m seeing what you saw
In the old stone rests the weaver’s soul
Steps carrying on
Like a new day that is lost here

In time all the fools will fall
In time all the seas are shore
In time every song is silent

Oh the banks they break but the roots they hold on

In time all the fools will fall
In time all the seas are shore
In time every song is silent

They hold on
They hold on
Track Name: Simple As
Simple As
It ain’t as simple as you thought it was
Inside the hill a mountain hides
It ain’t as simple as you thought it was
The thief had stolen his own life

It was today that lay in-front of me
Yesterday I left behind
What I will try to be, in-front of me
But what I am I leave behind

It ain’t as simple as you thought it was
Behind the sky the night will hide
It ain’t as simple as you thought it was
I tried to help, I only fight

It was today that lay in-front of me
Yesterday I left behind
What I will try to be, in-front of me
But what I am I leave behind
Track Name: Knock On My Door
Knock On My Door
I taste the cigarettes on my breath
The bitterness hides something I cannot say
I know my fate, I know what i’ll get
I’ve been nothing I can be nothing again

I pray he doesn’t knock on my door
I pray he doesn’t knock on my door

I know my fate I know what i’ll get
I know the curse of knowing what I have been
I know my sings I’ll try to forget
I’ve been nothing I can be nothing again

I pray he doesn’t knock on my door
I pray he doesn’t knock on my door

I’ll taste it, I’ll taste it
Track Name: The Man That Death Forgot
The Man That Death Forgot
I know a man that death forgot, death forgot his name
I know a man that death forgot, death forgot his name, like you

I know I have a start and end
But i’ll dance in the middle
I’ve seen the start i’ll find the end
But i’ll dance in the middle

I know the look that death has got, death has got your name
I know the look that death has got, death has got your name, it’s you

I know I have a start and end
But i’ll dance in the middle
I’ve seen the start i’ll find the end
But i’ll dance in the middle

All you know, damned, they’ll do you wrong
All you know, damned, they’ll do you wrong
Track Name: Bye Bye Big Sky
Bye Bye Big Sky
I can taste the war in the history
But I can’t see the signs on the road
I can draw a line from this meeting
I can draw a map I don’t know

And I find I’ve found my way, but I waited here too long
And I find I’ve found my way, but the way has now been lost

Now that country road no longer takes me home
Now that country road no longer takes me home

Take me where I’m wanted I miss me
Take my hand and lead me on home
I sorry that I know I don’t miss me
I never miss the things I don’t know

And I find I’ve found my way, but I waited here too long
And I find I’ve found my way, but the way has now been lost

Now that country road no longer takes me home
Now that country road no longer takes me home

I’ve seen it all
Home on the road
There’s no home on the road
Track Name: The Dice
The Dice
You’ll never fold if the hands you hold are strong
As the numbers fall all the odds keep rolling on

It’s a game each day, but who rolls the dice, who rolls the dice for you?
We play but who rolls the dice, who rolls the dice for you?

The ace is thrown where every king will go
And the wish for gold, but the wish is gold enough

It’s a game each day, but who rolls the dice, who rolls the dice for you?
We play but who rolls the dice, who rolls the dice for you?
Track Name: Shiner
Shiner
I wanted to run with the river, the river swam right through me
I wanted to live with the river but the river is drowning me

You can’t tell me if the sun is shining
Our shadows ain’t the same
You can’t tell me if the clouds are forming
Your rain don’t fall on me

But you’ll never shine
Without the night
The brightest shine
In the darkest skies

You can’t tell me if the sun is shining
Our shadows ain’t the same
You can’t tell me if the clouds are forming
Your rain don’t fall on me

But you’ll never shine
Without the night
The brightest shine
In the darkest skies

You don’t owe nothing and we all owe nothing
God just leave it behind
You don’t owe nothing and we all owe nothing
God just leave it behind
