Track Name: All of My Reasons
I am the lion, I am the lamb,
I am the road less traveled to the Promised Land,
I am the mountain, I am the sea,
I am the story only you believe,
I am your nightmare, I am your saving grace,
I am the fruit that tempts you, "baby have a taste,"
I am the bloodshed, I am the light,
I am the wrong choice that feels so right.

But baby who? Baby who? Who are you? My love so true,
Say you are in me and I in you,
I only live for you.

I am the garden, I am the plague,
I am six thousand years of man's burning rage,

You are the white flag, you are the boat,
You are the light that leads me safely home,

But baby who? Baby who? Who are you? My love so true,
Say you are in me and I in you,
I only live for you,
I only live for you,
I only live for you.

You are all of my reasons,
You are all of my reasons,
You are all of my reasons,
You are all of my reasons.
Track Name: The Flood
Tell me who's that writing, John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writing, John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writing, John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

There's no rhyme or reason,
There's no crime been done,
There's no one deserving,
The storm that's on the run,

So hide yourself downstairs,
Hold to your loving wife,
Pray the angel passes your door,
Pray he spares your life,

'Cause I'm trying to be a good man,
And I'm trying hard to hear,
I look up to the sky and I ask why,
'Cause no one believes the weather man,
Until they're sinking in the flood.

A world war is upon us,
Tornados trail behind,
But where are we to run,
When the TV says stay inside?

The preachers they tell jokes,
The heathens fall and pray,
Sister please I'm frightened,
Tell me it'll be okay.

'Cause I'm trying to be a good man,
And I'm trying hard to hear,
I look up to the sky and I ask why,
'Cause no one believes the weather man,
Until they're sinking in the flood.

Tell me who's that writing, John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writing, John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writing, John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals
Track Name: Five More Years
Close your eyes fall into dreaming,
Go to a place that seems too sweet to exist,
And never think, no never think of tomorrow,
Or the changes yesterday never gave birth to,
Or take maybe five more years to realize,
That time is a bitch and not your friend.

Walk in the sun and hope your mind stays,
Watch your step each time you take the stairs,
Or will you end up jumping out a window,
And blaming the ground that caught your fall,
Or take maybe five more years to realize,
You ain't done a damn thing with your life.

It all seems like a scene from a fever dream,
And I lay in my bed and force myself to believe,
That I can hear Katie singing as she's playing the piano,
And it all feels so near and so true,
We're both alive and we're smiling,
There's no fears and mama ain't crying,
And home, it don't feel like the moon.

You've got a thorn in your side but it seems you like it,
It's become something that you can't live without,
And you weep for yourself and hope someone's listening,
Because sympathy is the only thing that soothes you,
I think it's gonna take you five more years to realize,
That you are your own worst enemy

It all seems like a scene from a fever dream,
And I lay in my bed and force myself to believe,
That I can hear Katie singing as she's playing the piano,
And it all feels so near and so true,
We're both alive and we're smiling,
There's no fears and mama ain't crying,
And home, it don't feel like the moon.

No home, it don't feel like the moon.
Track Name: Hands of a Hangman
God has the hands of a hangman, waiting with a noose,
Sometimes he'll throw his loving arms around you,
Other times he won't let loose,
But it's him and him alone, who decides when you will go,
And whether it is heaven or it is hell where you will call your home

Now there's a place where the old creek bends,
Where I'll go to meet my end,
You won't be seeing me 'round here again,
I took my coins and I put 'em in the boatman's hands,

Because there's a hurt to deep to tame,
Like a broken horse without a name,
But in my mind darlin' I can't stay,
I've been looking, but I never found a better way.

In fear I threw my stones in the water, forgive my vanity,
See that mirror held inside its hands; my hate,
But I'm not the only one who's ever hid in shame,
There was a hazy day, a rose bush,
And a longing that will never quite feel the same.

And now I'll climb the tallest tree,
Just to see what I can see,
There's a song playing on the breeze,
And a black crow flying 'cause he knows he's free,

And now he's tied it 'round my throat,
This rope like a winter coat,
Well I hope this pain ain't slow,
But as I go, won't you tell me that you'll miss me so?

In fear I threw my stones in the water, forgive my vanity,
See that mirror held inside its hands; my hate,
But I'm not the only one who's ever hid in shame,
There was a hazy day, a rose bush,
And a longing that will never quite feel the same.
Track Name: Old Friend
There's a famine that is spreading,
And there ain't no end in sight,
And if you feel it closing in,
Don't go towards the light,
I took a job in Big Spring,
Left my home up north,
Working in the same fields,
My pa worked as a boy,
They say oil is the thing,
That'll fill your hands with gold,
But what's the joy in riches,
When the waste land is your home?

Forgiveness will sustain you,
And the dollars will provide,
But there ain't no use in running,
From your conscience you can't hide,
Just like "sorry" is just a word,
If nothing is ever done,
And love is just a fairytale,
If you never find someone,
I see lightning in the distance,
And there's oil on my hands,
But I'll soon leave this living,
And give you all I have.

Let's make up for time, that wasn't so well spent,
Let's make up for love that's gone, and won't be here again.

There's a girl back in El Paso,
Dreaming of me tonight,
And California dreams a dream,
The desert calls a lie,
Go ahead drive through Western Texas,
And then you just might know,
How it really feels,
To truly be alone,
But I won't go back to Clovis,
And hear the coyotes cry,
The place where I was born,
And where my brother Taylor died.

Now the famine keeps on spreading,
But I'm leaving here tonight,
I'll be back home in El Paso,
Before the morning's light,
But sweet Jesus won't you guide me,
I can't see through the rain,
For you I fought back evil,
So won't you help me shake the pain,
And still I told that coward Satan,
"You'd best hide when I come back,"
We both met when we were kids,
But only I became a man.

And it's good to see you, see you again
It's good to see you, my old friend.

Let's make up for time, that wasn't so well spent,
Let's make up for love that's gone, and won't be here again.

Let's make up for time, that wasn't so well spent,
Let's make up for love that's gone, and won't be here again.
Track Name: Ain't Ready
I ain't ready,
I ain't ready,
There's roads my feet ain't traveled, There's sights my eyes ain't seen,
I ain't yet avenged the killer, I ain't yet found my true love,
I ain't ready for the sky to open up wide,
I ain't ready to return to my lord above.

And I won't go quiet,
I won't go quiet,
You can break my body down old man, but my spirit will live free,
You can crack the whip and taunt me, You can leave me in the sun to bleed,
But rest assured my song will be heard,
I won't go quiet,
I won't go quietly

And a man may say he owns me,
But in my heart I know it ain't true,
He may leave me laid down in a shallow grave,
But from the dust I'll rise again.

Because I ain't ready,
I ain't ready,
There's roads my feet ain't traveled, There's sights my eyes ain't seen,
I ain't yet avenged the killer, I ain't yet found my true love,
I ain't ready for the sky to open up wide,
I ain't ready to return to my lord above.
I ain't ready to return to my lord above.
