Track Name: The Wrath
Screams break the silence
of the on-looking crowd.
Her baby boy ain't coming home.
Sweet dreams and ballgames
draped in red, white and blue.
I wonder; does he still look like you?

Unfurl the weight of your world
all this too shall pass.
Relax your heart it'd tear you apart
waiting for the wrath.

The day when she left him
it was a good day to die.
The sun was over our light blue sky.
Memories of all she is
and a hot ball of lead--
the last thing running through his head.

Unfurl the weight of your world
all this too shall pass.
Relax your heart it'd tear you apart
waiting for the wrath.

Blood runs slow the farther it goes.
Until it bleeds into the ground.
And then I'll always be around
to pick you up.
Yes, I'll always be around.

Shades, blush and makeup
to make those scars go away.
My baby girl's gonna see me O.K.
Fist through the window
and a shard through his chest.
"Daddy, would you get here fast?"

Unfurl the weight of your world
all this too shall pass.
Relax your heart it'd tear you apart
waiting for the wrath to come.
Track Name: About a Girl I Know
I wrote a song today about a girl I know.
She's got a way with her words cause she told me so.
And with the world disarrayed, all bleeding black
she's gonna carry me off that old beaten track.

Nobody ever recalls so don't you ever
tell me bout some other love-- I know you better than that.
I want you where I'm at, so I can say that I love you.
It's like Heaven above you lost it's clouds and you've fallen down.

I met a girl today. She had autumn hair.
She had a subtle smile, and skin so fair.
And when she calls my name when I'm down and out.
I can't remember the way to breathe in and out.

Nobody ever recalls so don't you ever
tell me bout some other love-- I know you better than that.
I want you where I'm at, so I can say that I love you.
It's like Heaven above you lost it's clouds and you've fallen down.

(We've got a long way to go.)

Carried away by your shawl-- no don't you ever
tell me bout summer love-- I know you better than that.
I want you where I'm at, so I can say that I love you.
It's like Heaven above you lost it's clouds and you've fallen down.
It's like Heaven above you lost it's clouds and you've fallen down.
Track Name: Lois
Late last night sang a whip-poor-will
out beyond the valley west of Hendersonville.
The ground was barren there was nary a yield
but a love was growing from the dandelion fields.

Where the drought is high and the wind don’t blow.
Won’t you lay down your burdens before the worry takes its toll?
When a bright-eyed boy meets a doe-eyed girl
it’s a long way to Heaven from the Carolina soil.

Kiss me, kiss me, lickety-split.
Yonder comes daddy with a hickory stick.
Cry your name in-between the licks.
If you pick me out a flower then I’ll pick me out a switch.

Where the drought is high and the land don’t grow.
Won’t you lay down your burdens before the worry takes its toll?
When a bright-eyed boy meets a doe-eyed girl
it’s a long way to Heaven from the Carolina soil.

The bales are lifted and the seeds are sown.
My tongue is tied-up, twisted, and my heart is set in stone.
When a bright-eyed boy loves a Carolina girl
well nothing could be finer than to be all yours—
sneak out the door—
leave until tomorrow for the Hatteras shore.

One last chore, better than all—
answer to your every single beck and call.
I left a good home down in Etowah.
I’m never gonna see my maw or my paw.

Where the drought is high and this bird has flown.
Won’t you lay down your burdens before the worry takes its toll?
When a bright-eyed boy meets a doe-eyed girl
it’s a long way to Heaven from the Carolina soil.
Track Name: Wounds
Holding your place like static on the radio.
But it's no big secret that my mind has started to go.
We're a whole lot older and a little unstable.
Cause your heart's as cold as the dinner on the table.

Stove-top hot from the fire of an old flame.
Pin drop. Dead stop. Never gonna be the same.
Could you swallow your pride as soon as you are able?
Cause your heart's as cold as the dinner on the table.

I know it's hard to play the ruse
in somebody else's blues,
but I don't know why I've fallen for you
and you've fallen for me.
Time can't heal all--
Wounds.
Oh no you don't, it's much too soon
to be your sun if you'd be my moon.

Would our stars peek braced in door frames and gravity?
Would their fingers lace through heartbreak and misery?
Where true love's cost is merely just a fable.
Where your heart's as cold as the dinner on the table.

I know it's hard to play the ruse
in somebody else's blues,
but I don't know why I've fallen for you
and you've fallen for me.
Time can't heal all--
Wounds.
Oh no you don't, it's much too soon
to be your sun if you'd be my moon.

Sometimes you've got to try a little.
Sometimes you're gonna die a little-- inside.
And that's alright girl, cause it's a long way to fall
from the top of the world.

Catch-as-catch-can, see if you can catch me.
Push me. Shove me. I don't want to lose you.
I'm a cardboard box I left for you to label.
And your heart's as cold as the dinner on the table.
Track Name: Lady Macbeth
If by who,
better it had been you.
Nothing could ever replace
when i see your face.

But in good time,
you're gonna pass your prime.
Before you get up and leave,
for whom do you bleed?

With my last breath
you'll be my Lady Macbeth.
I love you to death.

Sun and moon,
disappearing too soon.
They've got me spinning around,
'til I hit the ground.

Who's like God?
To be a little too flawed.
Before you stay or you go,
I want you to know:

That with my last breath
you'll be my Lady Macbeth.
I love you to death.
Track Name: Oh! Valeta
You wash the dishes for your family.
You give us kisses when we need to be.
Girl, you know that you are everything to me.
All dolled up in ribbons and a red dress
she crawled up; our baby's making quite the mess--
our little devil-turned-sweetness. Here she comes.

Oh! Valeta, don't you let her--
Be the girl that you used to be.
My! Valeta, don't you let her--
Put on that shimmy and shake that you did.
Put on that shimmy and shake that you did.

You've got that shimmy and shake, yeah.
Don't fake me, just go ahead and take it.
Girl, you really want to make me lay you down.
She said, "I believe there's a tunnel ending in sight."
Who cares what you're doing in the dead of night
so long as you make it back in time. I'll be home.

Oh! Valeta, don't you let her--
Be the girl that you used to be.
My! Valeta, don't you let her--
Put on that shimmy and shake that you did.
Put on that shimmy and shake that you did.
