Track Name: That Day'll Come
You've been down and feeling sorry
while you create your own hell
trying to change the world around you
instead of saving your self

That day'll come
I know I know
that day'll come
that day'll come

Hurting and using all of them that love you
and you still wanna take a little more
some day you'll find it in you
to care a little and stop that God damn civil war

That day'll come
I know I know
that day'll come
that day'll come

And you will find no mercy
not by how
not where you been searching

That day'll come
I know I know
that day'll come
that day'll come

I know that day is rapidly approaching
when youll become wise some how
I only hope it's sooner than later
and if that time ain't now...

That day'll come
Track Name: Let Them In
Spent a lot of time suspicious
never letting myself trust no one
couldn't count on nobody
to have any decent intentions

Paranoia is a lonely place
even when you're surrounded by friends
cause when you can't let yourself trust
you really cannot be one to them

So if someone shows up at your wall
to show you something good
please let them in

Cause everyone's been hurt
and everybody's suffered for a while
everyone's been healed
and everybody's had their chance to smile
they'll all hurt again
we all lose and we all win
and that's alright
but some will resolve to hide
content to watch their life just pass them by

Spent a lot of time wondering
when someone'd come my way i could believe
I thought I'd be better off to just give up on that
and never be deceived

I found out in solitude in your own mind
just ain't no way to live
and there ain't no way anyone
can ruin a chance you ain't willing to give

So if someone shows up at your wall
to show you something good
please let them in
Track Name: Cookies'n'Milk
They say you give a mouse a cookie
and he'll ask you for milk
I say, "A little milk and cookies never
got nobody killed"
but too much of any good thing
Can often turn out bad
maybe it just depends on how much
cookies and milk you have

If you wanna have a good time, baby
you gotta take it slow and easy
there ain't no finish line and no first place trophies
ain't no winners here and no worries
we got the rest of our lives to get through it
and so many ways to abuse it

Now back in my drinking days
of which, I'm not to proud
me and my friend, John
would have the intention of blacking out
and although I have been sober now
for several years
I'm still envious of those of you
who can stop at just three beers

If you wanna have a good time baby
you gotta take it slow and easy
there ain't no finish lines and no first place trophies
ain't no winners here and no worries
we got the rest of our lives to get through it
and so many ways to abuse it

as for my personal opinion
there's nothing wrong with getting high
until it becomes the only way
that you identify
for example if you got excited just now
at the first mention of weed
and for that you completely miss the point
of the rest of the song I sing

if you wanna have a good time baby
you gotta take it slow and easy
there ain't no finish line and no first place trophies
ain't no winners here and no worries
we got the rest of our lives to get through it
and so many ways to abuse it
Track Name: This House
Who does this house
belong to
I see pictures hanging
but I don't see you
hopefully your only
passing through

This place must've cost
a hefty price
cause the sacraments
around your shrine look nice
but there's blood on the floor
from your latest sacrifice

Who does this house
belong to
I see pictures hanging
but I don't see you
hopefully you're only
passing through

Let me open
if you please
up a window to let
in a breeze
cause the air is stale
and stagnant with disease

Who does this house
belong to
I see pictures hanging
but I don't see you
hopefully you're only
passing through

It don't matter how much
time you took
in the kitchen where you
used to cook
open up that front door just a crack
and have yourself a look

Who does this house
belong to
I see pictures hanging
but I don't see you
hopefully you're only
passing through

Pride and Envy
Greed and Wrath
all of these that make the
stoic laugh
could dwell under one roof
and hide behind the same mask

I hear you calling out
for Justice and
Mercy to lend you
a helping hand
well Wisdom, she don't care
if you don't understand
Track Name: The Candle
As the light gets brighter
and the flame reaches higher
reaches higher and gets hotter
and the wax, it flows like water
flows like water away from me

And if I can't be free with you
then I'll have to be free from you
to find what I need
I could wait for you
I could wait forever
but I can't wait around for me

The wick is getting shorter
with the time I can afford her
it grows dimmer in the night
but I don't need no candle light
don't need candle light to see

That if I can't be free with you
then I'll have to be free from you
to find what I need
I could wait for you
I could wait forever
But I can't wait around for me

With the Moon right above her
I don't wanna light another
gotta keep the candle burning
just as I keep learning
I keep learning just to let her be

And if I can't be free with you
then I'll have to be free from you
to find what I need
If I wait for you
I could wait forever
if I can wait around for me
if I can wait around for me
Track Name: Catching Rain
Don't forget to give thanks
when you're inspired
to the torch that lights
that holy fire
blesses you with a vision
only you can see
to cause something out of nothing
to be

In your garden where you stand
waiting, looking up
hoping soon the clouds will burst
then you feel it when it lands
and it's cold to the touch
you shiver just a little bit at first

Don't forget to give thanks
when you're inspired
to the torch that lights
that holy fire
blesses you with a vision
only you can see
to cause something out of nothing
to be

So catch all the rain you can
in your little paper cup
and try and quincy your neverending thirst
hold it gently in your hand
and never drink too much
at once cause you know what it's worth

Don't forget to give thanks
when you're inspired
to the torch that lights
that holy fire
blesses you with a vision
only you can see
to cause something out of nothing
to be

You might not understand
when you're feeling stuck
sometimes to the point it hurts
But think of all the times you had
when you were down on your luck
remember
you've been through much worse
Track Name: Hometown Blues
I just wanna be on the road with you
I don't think that there's a day we can't
make it through
I can't wait to shake these hometown blues

living in a van and we're miles from home
we get broken down on the side of the road
I don't care we got everything we need
far away from that Texas town
is good enough for me

I just wanna be on the road with you
I don't think that there's a day we can't
make it through
I can't wait to shake these hometown blues

When winter's on the way and we're running outta money
and it won't be long before we're cold and hungry
it don't matter we've been there before
long as we ain't waiting round here no more

I just wanna be on the road with you
I don't think that there's a day we can't
make it through
I can't wait to shake these hometown blues

Itchy feet and a weary mind
and it's just gonna take a little bit more time
before we get our money saved and we get gone
leave this place behind and move along

I just wanna be on the road with you
I don't think that there's a day we can't
make it through
I can't wait to shake these hometown blues

Just like a couple of rolling Stones
with empty pockets but wealthy souls
and plenty good reasons to stay but more to leave
our home town's everywhere I do believe
Track Name: I'll Be Gone
When I'm dead oh when I'm dead
I'll be gone I'll be gone
when I'm dead and when I'm gone
all that's left of me is gonna be my song

You can bury me
most anywhere
I don't care
in the mountains
or by the sea
it don't matter just don't matter
to me

When I'm dead oh when I'm dead
I'll be gone I'll be gone
when I'm dead and when I'm gone
All that's left of me is gonna be my song
so if you
feel so compelled
to sing it please just see
that it's sung well

You can send my soul
on down below
far as it goes
to the deepest
pit in hell
ain't no storm that I can't weather
and weather well

When I'm dead oh when I'm dead
I'll be gone I'll be gone
when I'm dead and when I'm gone
all that's left of me is gonna be my song
so if you
feel so compelled
to sing it please just see
that it's sung well

How and when I die
ain't half as important to me
as how I live my life
and the virtues
I uphold
are more important to me
than any story I've been told
Track Name: Time To Time
We could all use a friend
to ease our worried mind
we could all use some help
from time to time

To speak for myself
I've been left out in the rain
with no way to keep my
clothes dry
there was no one around
just me and the clouds
but we've all been there
from time to time

We could all use a friend
to ease our worried mind
we could all use some help
From time to time

I know i have friends
who had their share of
hard days
that seemed gentle
compared to their hard nights
You are what you do
when it counts so I've tried
to be there for them
from time to time

We could all use a friend
to ease our worried mind
we could all use some help
from time to time

You can't forget
the beauty of a bloom
just cause it withers
and dies
you gotta have your bad days
if you'll recognize
the good days that you have
from time to time
