So many records and not enough time To figure out which yours and which are mine It's just a matter of time So many places that I can't go All of these friends that I can no longer know That's how it goes when you go So if you want it you can have it You can have it all But if you leave me, do me a favor Don't leave a thing behind I got your dog and he's sitting here The one we named after your favorite beer It's just a little bit weird You said forever but here we are I try to hide but underneath I’m scarred You really did a number on me So if you want it you can have it You can have it all But if you leave me, do me a favor Don't leave a thing behind I’m writing this desperate message On paper your mother paid for It’s torture to be left here only half alone, half alone So if you want it you can have it You can have it all But if you leave me, do me a favor Don't leave a thing behind

Mother Hen 03:27
Mother hen they’ve done it again They done it again like I knew they would Mother hen they’ve done it again They done it again like I told ya The chickens infested the sheep with lice Till they thought they were led by hawks And puppies were sent to the rainbow bridge They just thought they were going on a walk Chickens keep talking the talk Mother hen they’ve done it again They done it again like I knew they would Mother hen they’ve done it again They done it again like I told ya The pigs cried wolf till blue in the face While they raided the ammo box They flew the flag of our disgrace And cut off all the locks Cameras on every block But oooh the rooster’s got it easy Oooh he’s just watching the clock count down Cows gone dry and the water’s high And there’s nothing we can do Horses sway in a dangerous way And it’s all the same to you Which way down will you choose? Mother hen they’ve done it again They done it again like I knew they would Mother hen they’ve done it again They done it again like I told ya Like I told ya

Well your back’s against the wall No one left to take the fall for you So you send kids off to die On another lie they go They have to The brown ones and the poor The ones with nothing more to give You’ll take them And blow them all away While all your friends get paid and you play Another round And I know I’ve seen this before It was not that long ago We all know how this movie goes The never ending show, oh The mothers on your lawn Were little more than pawns to you And the boys who make it home You’ll leave them on their own to die by their own hand And I know I’ve seen this before It was not very long ago We all know how this movie goes It’s the never ending show, whoa, oh.

Sometimes I feel okay Sometimes I throw it all away Sometimes I’m right on top Sometimes I wish it all would stop It’s been some time since time was mine And I could spend it on my mind Waiting for the sunrise Waiting on my Jesus Every morning reading Motorcycle Maintenance A couple tabs of acid Staring through Da Vinci Blankets in the tall grass Digging for the meaning Looking all around Sometimes I feel so free Sometimes I can’t get on my feet Maybe it’s not just me But sometimes that’s so hard to see The clarity rising from my pain Knowing that I can’t stop this train Waiting for the sunrise Waiting on my Jesus Every morning reading Motorcycle Maintenance A couple tabs of acid Staring through Da Vinci Blankets in the tall grass Digging for the meaning Looking all around All we can count on is today So many more for you I pray Waiting for the sunrise Waiting on my Jesus Every morning reading Motorcycle Maintenance Dinner with some old friends Walking through the garden Frisbee in the backyard Calling my old teachers Movies at the old mall 3-D at the new one Hooky at the ballgame Smoking in some doorway A couple tabs of acid Staring through Da Vinci Blankets in the tall grass Digging for the meaning Looking all around

The Unheard 03:20
F-150 with a punisher sticker Blue stripe on the side Crew cut proud boy with an open carry Tattooed in white pride He’s licensed to kill And you’re paying his bills Murder victims fit the perp’s description Don’t even ask their name In the smoldering eye of his itching pistol They all look the same A hammer needs a nail And a young black male Is asking for it just walking down the street I watched a lynching today From the comfort of my home My friends live every day In a fear I’ll never know I’ll never know I’ll never know But listen to their words Make way for the voice of the unheard Complements like white smoke signals Giving away the tell Like "he was so articulate " And "you can see she dressed so well" It makes their lives Feel justified Internalized the training of 400 years of hate It's baked into our consciousness We can’t even relate It’s the little things That pull the strings That keep system running like it does I watched a lynching today From the comfort of my phone My friends live every day In a fear I’ll never know I’ll never know I’ll never know But listen to their words Listen to the voice of the unheard Unheard

The Ghost 04:52
Flickering light I haven’t seen since I was about seventeen You don’t know what you miss the most Until you’re visited by the ghost Cigarettes and sticky tack Holding up glowing stars in your Pontiac I felt so alive in the bright and quiet snow Now I’m riding with the ghost It’s a gift I don’t know how to use It’s a path to somewhere I can’t choose I’m taking steps but it doesn’t show Blame it on the ghost Was it ever really there Was the deal you made ever fair The dogs are growling and I don’t know It's probably the ghost

Call me antifa Call me what you will Call me a bleeding heart pussy With the power to kill You can call me anything you like If it gives you a thrill I quit talking to myself I'll leave the labels to you I just quit talking to myself Ahh, if only you took one minute to pick my worried mind My worried mind You better smoke em While you got em here You better write yourself a five year plan For the next 20 years Because the people have spoken and they, They got the time for you I quit talking to myself I'll get stronger in time I just quit talking to myself Ahh, time has come to remind ourelves Whose side we're really on Really on And I say, Who do you work for, who do you serve?

Big ol empty highway Aluminum foil sky Feeling some weirdly kinda weird and So many reasons why I know we’re in trouble And more trouble's on the way You might hate it but at least we made it To thanksgivings day Ain’t too many options To get your talking to Coffee in the driveway Is the best that we can do Ain't no one on the couch to bitch and moan when there’s a flag thrown on the play I ain’t elated but at least we made it To thanksgivings day Now I thank the lord or whomever That I can still sing me a song And I got all ten of my fingers So I’ll keep pickin right along, pick on Sippin on a sandwich Chewin on my beer Wishin all my friends and mothers Could be with me here I know it sure is a tough one But we’ll get by just okay Don’t forsake it this is how we make it To next thanksgivings day Don’t debate it this is how we make it To next thanksgivings day I sure would love to see you On next thanksgivings day

Hypnotized 06:04
Farmland on the highway Littered with signs Saying Jesus gonna leave your sinning soul behind And a man up on the TV I guess he was a preacher man He said "buy up all my gruel, the end is coming soon" Now if you want you can believe anything that you see anytime And give away your life It happens all the time And if you think that you will be on the side of some truth they all hide Well now you're in too deep You're walking in your sleep They got you hypnotized You think medicine is sickness Chemtrails paint the sky You can get to the edge of the world in just a boat ride And a government of lizards, all chugging adrenachrome Are gonna make you take the law into your own hands now Now if you want you can believe anything that you see online And give away your life You know it happens all the time And if you think that you will be on the side of some truth they all hide Well now you're in too deep You're talking in your sleep They got you hypnotized

Hold On 03:58
It’s about as bad as its ever been At least in recent memory It’s ’18 and ‘68 and ‘29 At the same time Pain and anger from my brothers Sisters losing their families The sickness comes in many forms You can’t always see The light is dim and it's fading fast Spiritual compass spinning round and round and round Nobody here to ask for directions But there’s only one way to turn Hold on to each other Hold on, it’s all we got left Hold on if for no other reason Than to be someone to hold onto The only way out is through Time to survey the damage Trees uprooted from the ground You thought it could not happen here But look, now it’s all around Time is a foregone illusion Up is down and wrong is right Disaster keeps your bed spinning By the cold cold touchscreen light When it looks like there’s no way out When you lose sight of you When it feels like this day could be the last One last thing is true Hold on to each other Hold on it’s all we got left Hold on if for no other reason Than to be someone to hold onto The only way out is through And the only thing left to do Is to be someone to hold onto Hold on to each other Hold on it’s all we got left Hold on if for no other reason Than to be someone to hold onto And the only way out is through You know there's only one thing left that we can do Is to be someone to hold onto
