Track Name: Beat Your Soul Ragged
You thought you could mess around in
New Orleans
That city beat your soul ragged
So it seems
Pick up your telephone and
Find out who you love
When nobody comes to your rescue
Seek refuge from above

Well I say:

Dig, your, heels
Into unstable ground

And I say:

Dig, your, heels
Into unstable ground

Rain screams down from
The sky above
Maybe it knows you cheated
The ones you love
Pick up your telephone and
Find out who you love
When no one comes to your rescue
Seek refuge from above

I say:

Dig, your, heels
Into unstable ground
Well I say:

Dig, your, Heels,
Into unstable ground
Track Name: I'm Free
Lawman is comin' for me
Escaped a sentence of 93
Judgement rains down like fire
The dear lord sure knows I'm vile

Now I'm comin' for you

Lock your doors, lock your doors
Lord knows I've been keepin score
Your tears are gonna come down like fire
Don't think you can reconcile

Now I'm comin' for you

I found you, I found you
Oh god what are you gonna do
My law comes down like fire
As I watch the life leave your eyes

Now my soul is free
Track Name: Escape To Nashville
I'm going to escape to Nashville, Tennessee
I'm going to escape to Nashville, Tennessee
There my baby
Will come and rescue me

Trouble, trouble keeps on chasing me
Trouble, trouble keeps on chasing me
Los Angeles aint' what it used to be

Resolution, destitution
it's time to beg
from our knees

Resolution, destitution
it's time to weep
and moan

Oh

I'm runnin, I'm runnin I'll make damn sure I flee
I'm runnin, I'm runnin I'll make damn sure I flee
I hope my demons don't catch up with me
Track Name: Ain't No Way Back Home
I know there ain't no way back home
Until the wolves have gone to bed
Quit your whining son
They'll bury you, bury you soon

I know there ain't no way back home
Things just ain't how they seem
I'm direction blind
They'll bury you, bury you soon

Oh, you'll never make it out alive
They told me time and time again
Death has no mercy
They'll bury you, bury you soon

Whoa

I know there is a storm ahead
Mountains crumble to the sea
judgement day is comin'
They'll bury you, bury you soon

Whoa

I know there ain't no way back home
Until the wolves have gone to bed
Quit your whining son
They'll bury you, bury you soon
Track Name: Come Up For Air
I come up for air
You say we'll be fine
Darlin' you, are too much to bare

I'm drownin
In your wake
All this love is too much to take

Save me, save me, from you
Track Name: Horizon Is On Fire
Horizon is on fire
Wiping the landscape clean
Horizon is on fire
Better take what you need

Can't take anything from me
Cause I'm completely spent
The only thing I know darlin is
If you don't run, you're gonna burn

Your house is on fire
Wiping your memories clean
Your house is on fire
Better take what you need

Can't take anything from me
Cause I'm completely spent
The only thing I know darlin is
If you don't run, you're gonna burn
Track Name: Nobody Speaks For Me
In this bar
Time Stands still
And I know that
Nobody's gonna speak for me
Your guilt, it shines
Shines like gold
We're getting old cause
Nobody's gonna speak for me
And I hope, and I pray
You'll grab ahold of me, and say

Come here
With your heavy load
I'm gonna lift that weight from your soul

With my feet
Sunk in the ground
God I know that
Nobody is gonna speak for me
Your guilt, it shines
Shines like gold
We're getting old cause
Nobody's gonna speak for me
Edge toward the door
You block my way
Grab ahold of me, and say

Come here
With your heavy load
I'm gonna lift that weight from your soul
Track Name: Wicked People
Drag my weary feet
Yeah I'm on this path my friend
It's time to bow my head and suck up my pride again

Wicked people, steal your sight
Forgot to mention
We won't be alright
The night is comin'
Hide your fear
Cause they're after you, after you my dear

Pack your bags
Train is leavin' soon
Pack your bags
Train is leavin' soon

You been runnin'
Your whole life
It's time to settle down and
Try to get right again
Those wicked people
Steal your sight
Aforementioned it won't be alright
The night is comin
Hide your fear
Cause they're after you, after you my dear

Pack your bags, train is leavin soon
Pack your bags, train is leavin soon
Track Name: You're Evil
I know what you did
I know what you did
I know what you did
It's all comin' back to me

Darlin' you're
Evil
Darlin' you're
Evil

Woke up with the sun in my eyes
Head foggy full of lies
Empty pockets in a ditch
Boy, you're in for it

Darlin' you're
Evil
Darlin' you're
Evil

I know what you did
You keep your indiscretions hid
God knows what you did
It's all comin' back to me

Darlin' you're
Evil
Darlin' you're
Evil
Track Name: SwampStomp
Oh, when that fire hits your face
Leaves you drownin' in disgrace
Oh lord, have mercy on me

Worked the same job for twenty five years
Lost it in an hour and confirmed my fears
Oh lord, have mercy on me

Oh, when that fire hits your face
And this story remains the same
Oh lord, have mercy on me
