Track Name: Ballad of Broken Bottles
You took everything with no regret
Broken bones and a lit cigarette
I am eating copper coins for dinner
In the hopes to make me thinner
So when I see my mother she can look me in the eye


And when the time comes upon us
and lord looks down in disgust
Well I count the grains of sands
If that's what it takes to be a man
Then don't bother me.


You say I’m your one & only
A kind word & a serpines smile
I went and gonna and trade my soul
To get you all those rings of gold
But it's never enough


I’m going home to Georgia
I’m going home where you can’t find me


Please stop laughing in my face
Itchy palms and severed straws
I didn't want have to do it
But you brought me down to it

And when The time comes upon us
and lord looks down in disgust
Well I count the grains of sands
If that's what it takes to be a man
Then don't bother me.


Oh these hands will never be clean again
Broken bottles all remain
But there is one thing before I go my dear
I Don’t Care
Track Name: Nice Guy
Pocket full of knives and a bag full of books
It's hard to be sad when you're misunderstood
It's hard to breath with a gun to your head
But lock the door come inside and tie me down to the bed

I’m a nice guy I’ll take your word
Cause I told you everything that you've heard
I’m a nice guy that's what they say
But if you double cross me then I’ll ruin your day


A deal is a deal in a jeans or a tie
Dont trust a cover cause it's probably a lie
Business or pleasure don't need a divide
Life is just easier when you don't pick sides


I’m a nice guy I’ll take your word
Cause I told you everything that you've heard
I’m a nice guy that's what they say
But if you double cross me then I’ll ruin your day


The preacher likes me and the neighbors can't complain
Cause if there's any trouble i'm the last to be blamed
Cutting throats in sheep's clothes
Left in the gutter to feed those crows.


I’m a nice guy I’ll take your word
Cause I told you everything that you've heard
I’m a nice guy that's what they say
But if you double cross me then I’ll ruin your day
Track Name: Lying and Crying
You're Lying, I’m Crying
But of course it's all my fault
Push down face first in the bed
Bring back to the default
I’m Lying, You're Crying
Merry go rounded again
Babe we're like a pack rabid dogs
Locked up in a pen


But don't you know I’d do it again if I could
Cause though this life is killing me it hurts so good


Cut through another pointless feud
It takes two to tango
Good bye baby goodbye baby
Baby got to go
I don't need you to talk to
I got the echos off my walls
That's it I’m done
Sleeping with the enemy


Forest fires
Kill desire
cut the wire
build a pyre
burn to the ground cause I would like to see the sun


But don't you know I’d do it again if I could
Cause though this life is killing me it hurts so good
Track Name: Wait For Me
I'm waiting for the chance
For that one night lovers dance
So fill me up with music
So the silence can't fit


Good things come to those who wait
I’ll believe it when I see it


Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
Cause I'll be coming home


I went through all the colors
But they all just seem to clash
Records spin and photos fade
Trying to remember all of her names


Good things come to those who wait
I'll believe it when I see it


Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
Cause I’ll be coming home


-breakdown-


Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
Wait Wait Wait for me
Wait for me my love
