Track Name: Now Now Baby
Now Now Now Baby,
Oh Darlin'
Won't you make some time to call?
'Cause I am feelin' so lonely,
'though I've got my friends around.

Now now now baby, oooh baby,
If I could just hear your voice
Let me know that you love me
And I’ll be waiting for youwhen you come on home.

It seems like everything is wrong,
ain't nothin' been right since you been gone.

Been singin'

Hey Now Now Baby.
(Hey Now Now Baby)
Hey Now Now Baby
Hey Now Now Baby

Hey, Now Now Now Baby

Now now now honey, ooh honey,
You ain't got to worry 'bout my love.
'Cause my heart went with you the day you left home.

It seems like everything is wrong,
ain't nothin' been right since you been gone.

Now now now suga Oooh suga
Why'd you have to go so far?
'Cause I need you
I need to feel myself in your arms.

It seems like everything is wrong,
ain't nothin' been right since you been gone.

Been singin'

Hey Now Now Baby.
(Hey Now Now Baby)
Hey Now Now Baby
Hey Now Now Baby

Hey, Now Now Now Baby
Track Name: Olive's Song
She comes in like a summer breeze
I cant seem to pin her she's a vapor in the wind
Most beautiful of any kind
With a smile and a glass of wine
It takes her round the bend

Oh Sweet Lo to my southern style
She's gone to the city for awhile
Follow if you'd like
Just a few miles up
She leaves a path of light marked by her love

Aesops fables tell the tale of
Olive filling up the well with the pebbles in her pail
She holds a candle to the sun
and lights the fire in the guns of the rebels
Though they fell

Oh Sweet Lo to my southern style
She's gone to the city for awhile
Follow if you'd like
Just a few miles up
She leaves a path of light marked by her love

Still folllowin her love
On Tybee shores and oakwood floors
A trail of light through open doors
I'm followin' her love

Oh Sweet Lo to my southern style
She's gone to the city for awhile
Follow if you'd like
Just a few miles up
She leaves a path of light marked by her love
Track Name: Drown
Hot breath drippin' down my neck but I can't seem to sweat
not even a little bit
Worry's not my kind of stress,
just need to find a little peace of mind.

Pull me close,
I can't say that I minded.

Rainbow colors of black and white.
I'm in the ring shadow-boxing light.
Baby you fight, I'll fly.

Pull me close,
I can't say that I minded.

Pull me down but baby please don't let me drown.

Deep love puddled up in shallow lust.
No luck, no luxury.

Pull me close, I can't say that I minded.
Pull me down but baby please don't let me drown.

Pull me close, I can't say that I minded.
Pull me down but baby please don't let me...
Track Name: Pumpkin Pie
I made a pumpkin pie today
I asked you how it tasted
You said,
Its alright.

I burned the crust and it was sour
'cause I forgot to add the flour
You said,
it’s alright.


Oooooh It's alright.

I washed your favorite shirt you said
Don’t use bleach 'cause it was red but I said,
It's alright.

Well I forgot to sort the clothes.
Now its pink you told me so and you said,
It's alright.

Oooooh It's alright.
Ooooh It's alright.

*Your mom gave us some old cast iron
I used soap to make it shine and I said,
it's alright.

So I scrubbed hard and I scrubbed good and it rusted just like it should
And you said,
it's alright.

You let me drive your truck 'cuz I drove a stick in junior high,
and I said,
It's alright.

Then one day it wouldn't start.
I burned the clutch and broke your heart you said,
It's alright.

Ooooh it's alright.
Oooooh it's alright.

Since when do you like pumpkin pie?
Honey, I think your new shirt looks nice
Did I mention that your mother never liked your wife?
But it's alright.

Ooooh it's alright.
Oooooh it's alright.
Oooooh it's alright.
Oooooh, it's not so bad.
Track Name: Two Graves
Two graves and one of them yours.
The others left open for a man from another shore,
Who smiles with fear that the others so near,
to a man of whom's death no one's sure.

I waited for you to come home
The letter addressed to a newly wed widow
Tore open the seams to silence the screams
that mistook her for being alone

Death come run to open arms,
embrace me hold me closer now.
Than when I felt your breath rise in my chest
it’s falling now with passing breath.

Crawled in to rest awhile with you,
They threw in the soil and the morning brought dew.
You’re scent on my skirt,
and the freshly tilled dirt,
And they knew I'd been dancing with you.

Death come run to open arms,
embrace me hold me closer now.
Than when I felt your breath rise in my chest
it’s falling now with passing breath.
Death come run to open arms,
embrace me hold me closer now.
Than when I felt your breath rise in my chest
it’s falling now with passing breath.
Track Name: Marching in the Rain
I'll be marching in the rain
drowning out your name.
I was washed out like a spider
climbing up the drain.
It was all in vain, all in veins.
Skeletons in the closets of each others frames.

Memories won't stay
buried in our brains.
They keep racing up the tracks that we once laid.
And my broken heart
is a bloody shame.
Seeping through the dirt where you marked my grave.



Wish I could forget what it was you said,
But the reaper seemed to creep upon your last breath.
Whispering his trade,
above the rain.
Shredding threads of life with his wide scythe blade.

Crying make me clean
let me forget.
Wash my red stained hands that laid him to rest
It was a broken heart
that lead him to the grave.
Now he's lying on the tracks and I'm marching in the rain.

I've got a thundercloud,
full of sleet and rage.
I've come to rain on your parade.
All the broken hearts,
marching one by one,
Armed with raindrop bullets and a thundercloud gun.

Rain Down
Rain Down
Rain Down

I've got a thundercloud,
full of sleet and rage.
I've come to rain on your parade.
All the broken hearts,
marching one by one,
Armed with raindrop bullets and a thundercloud gun.

Rain Down
Rain Down
Rain Down
Track Name: Kingdoms Fall
Kingdoms fall Mr. Know-It-All
Your tower like Babel will fall.
All your strivings come to dust,
Stealing glory to feel the rush.

Pride and Wonder, Curiosity

Ain't no good residing in yo.
Digging tunnels with no way through.
Layin' bodies against the rules.
Tieing nooses with laces from your shoes.

Leave your mark,
just don’t tread on me.

Train whistles blowing close now,
Covering your tracks cant keep me tied down.
I got free 'cause I cut down my flesh,
I'm the unknown travelin in bluesky wilderness.

Life and Death ain't the boss of me.
Track Name: Hopscotch & Bourbon
Daddy said when I was young,
With a hard heart and a heavier tongue,
Not much that I could understand.
Not 'til much later would his heavy words land.

My fragile frame breaks again
as I stretch up to touch the sky you forgot my name.
There weren’t any games
just boards,
planks in our eyes.
That’s what the preacher meant when he said 'such is life.'


Hopscotch and Bourbon,
Grapejuice and Wine.
Jump ropes, strung out hopes
Strung up just a little too high

You're ballerina danced a little too far.
The pink bled to red,
don’t you regret
your princesses scars.

Resemblance in my furrowed brow,
a will that rises with that old house,
that’s foundation was built
from the inside out.
Is that all it is now, is that all I am now?

Hopscotch and Bourbon,
Grapejuice and Wine.
Jump ropes, strung out hopes
Strung up just a little too high

You're ballerina danced a little too far.
The pink bled to red,
don’t you regret
your princesses scars.

Now I run on adrenaline and love.
All else was stolen from the basement full of bones,
Sticks and Stones,
and words that never made much sense. Well,
I was young and they’ve landed since.
Now I run on adrenaline and love.
I see how you struggle to call that preacher man's bluff.
I see your insides, your heavy stride.
Now you run on adrenaline and love.
Now I know what I've been of...

Hopscotch and Bourbon,
Grapejuice and Wine.
Jump ropes, strung out hopes
Strung up just a little too high

You're ballerina danced
just far enough, to know
it's fine, yeah it's alright,
to grow up on adrenaline and love.
