Somewhere 04:30
I’d like us all to consider our relations Because what we’re doing tonight its always subject to your interpretation So if we’re doing this right Lets have a goddamn conversation I didn’t come here to fight But I’ve made peace with what I’m sayin’ I know I don’t belong here but I must belong somewhere I know there’s something wrong here but I reply I’ve never changed a person’s mind By insulting their intelligence No I’ve never shouted someone down and gotten anything but strong defense Do we want to punish their position Or pull them out of ignorance? I know I’m as guilty as the rest But now I’m trying something different I know I don’t belong here but I must belong somewhere I know there’s something wrong here but I reply Can w figure out why we draw these lines Between what is such the same mind Oh if I could find, conjure or divine And open up wide a lens to inside It would feel so right To be seen tonight I know I don’t belong here but I must belong somewhere I know there’s something wrong here but I reply I know I don’t belong here but I must belong somewhere Now I hear a lot of talk of change but I don’t see that many changing Though colors blend and rearrange the pattern stays, a great rotation A picture painted black and white That we all know is mostly greyish Oh you don’t want my insight Alright I’ll just stick to playing

Bourbon bottle blooms Reminding me of you So I don’t let ‘em die I keep that hope alive Tell me is that abuse? I don’t think that they’ve thrived And neither have I Spending all our lives In bottle and blight Because of you And now I’m getting used To life at a stronger proof Just trying to survive Struggling to strive With my heart on the loose Well it all came untied From this loss and these lies Spending all my time In bottles and lines And lighters too And if I knew the things we grew would come to leave us Is the truth if only, would I only Come to let you down Or follow thru to make sure nothing came between us? Though I don’t know if you’d go. And yeah I’ve heard it too That you’ve found somebody new So I won’t even try All your love’s arrived I just wish that you’d choose To turn back the tide Let it be you and I Spending all our time In love and light Just for two And if I knew the things we grew would come to leave us Is the truth if only, would I only Come to let you down Or follow thru to make sure nothing came between us? Though I don’t know if you’d stay, or run away And if I knew the things we grew would come to leave us Is the truth if only, would I only Come to let you down Or follow thru to make sure nothing came between us? Though I don’t know if you’d go Still these Bourbon bottle blooms Keep reminding me of you So I don’t let em die I keep that hope alive Don’t you think that’s abuse? Well I know they don’t thrive And neither do I Spending all our lives In bottle and blight Because of you Spending all our lives in bottle and blight because of you.

Change 02:56
I got tired of the skyline And that commonwealth way No more of the campfires And that constant weight No I got me a plane ride To that golden state Gonna leave it all behind The life that I made If your worn-out wheels have got too rough Go on make your mind up and just change I must admit that it backfired Or was already too late It felt more like a landslide Than a great escape I got caught up in the wildfires And my own damn flames Now I’m left with a long drive And myself to blame If your worn-out wheels have got too rough Go on make your mind up and just change

Reconcile 04:41
If it’s the end for sure Let’s get some things on the record Like I want the world to know I love you I want the world to know I’m yours So I hitched a ride To that other side Where it turns out our lives Reconcile line by line Til we’re out of time And if you knew Would you choose the truth Or get lost on the wrong side of life? Where ever you go Would the truth show Thru your eyes? I can’t decide which state of mind fits with my lifestyle No all I know for sure Is they say some ends can be open doors And I want the world to know I love you I want the world to know I’m yours So I hitched a ride To that other side Where it turns out our lives Reconcile line by line Til we’re out of time And if you knew Would you choose the truth Or get lost on the wrong side of life? Where ever you go Would the truth show Thru your eyes?

Open Fire 05:04
I stand on the edge of a great divide An expanse that’s been furrowed by stubborn pride Identity cast into left and right All my blues giving way to their red and white There’s Liars and cowards on either side They won’t hear the truth but at least I tried And their all reaching down for their 45 I don’t speak I just laugh and then open wide Open wide Open fire I kneel at the edge of the southern sky I ponder how you can take it in stride Morality cast into wrong and right all my greys giving way to their black and white With policy poisoned and polarized I fear that we’re in for a rougher ride And their looking for answers from 45 All our hearts torn apart while the children cry Children die Open fire

Water and salt That’s all we are When we come into this blue world Our path is written almost from birth We cannot walk Can’t even talk And while we wonder what we’ll become We get caught up in the river’s run Feel yourself on the edge of it Rapids rushing that never quit Trials of life make us who we are Further downstream of love and loss Our serene start becomes whitewater Rapids running towards the slaughter Fathers, mothers, sons and daughters All descending towards our maker The waterfall Defines us all To fly or fall Meaning wrought from the spray and rocks
