Track Name: Robert & Jesse
Robert & Jesse

Count me out boys
Count me out boys
You don't know what you're talking about

Count me out boys
Count me out boys
You don't know what you're talking about

He would see us coming
He would sense us coming from behind
There's no way

He would see us plotting
He would sense us planning weeks before
That day

Count me out boys
Count me out boys
You don't know what you're talking about

The role would fall on me
Role would fall on me and so would his reign fall

But rain don't fall in hell
Rain don't fall in hell and that where we
Would surely be

Count me out boys
Count me out boys
You don't know what you're talking about
Track Name: Blood Cain
Blood Cain

You're creepin'
Like a spider on the wall
Or a tiger
on the prowl

You're waiting
For me to let my face fall
Or to let
my guard down


But you will not take
My Joy
You wil not take

You're skinny
Like a model on a purge
And you're a silent
funeral dirge

You want me
To kill my brother
If I am able
With a cane
Made out of maple

But you
Will not take my Joy
But you
Will not take my Joy
Track Name: You Were My Sunshine (ft. Hannah Miller)
You Were My Sunshine

Not long ago it was the middle of Spring
But it was the coldest month that I had ever seen
I wish I had you then
to keep me warm
You were my sunshine
My only sunshine

You were young, yes, you were seventeen
I was a country man, you were a city queen
But when you first spoke
My worlds turned bright
You were my sunshine
My only sunshine

You were my sunshine to my silver moon
You were to first wave of a deeper truth
You were the ripcord to my parachute
You were my sunshine
My only sunshine

The life we made was of brick and tin
And you were laughed at by all your friends
They my have money
but we had wealth
and we had sunshine
You were my sunshine

You were my sunshine to my silver moon
You were to first wave of a deeper truth
You were the ripcord to my parachute
You were my sunshine
My only sunshine

The doctors bills were more than we could take
You swore it was something you could shake
I just need rest
An afghan or two
Maybe some sunshine
I just need sunshine

You were my sunshine to my silver moon
You were to first wave of a deeper truth
You were the ripcord to my parachute
You were my sunshine
My only sunshine
Track Name: I'm Afraid of the Devil
I'm Afraid of the Devil

I was sitting in my field
Sitting all alone
Sitting on a stone
Waiting for the rain
For the rain to come and fall

That's when the Devil came by
Just to say, "Hello"
And I did not reply
Cause I'm a afraid
I'm afraid of the Devil
I'm afraid
Track Name: White Picket Cross
White Picket Cross

The rules have all changed
and no one told me
Oh where will the good boys go
We cover our sins
In self filled pleads
With ash and dirt and done

When you set yourself
in front of your deeds
and heave your final sign
When you breathe your last breath
with a cursing sting
And tears from poison eyes


And I'm tired of that white picket cross
And I'm tired of that white picket cross

The clothes that you wear
The air that you breathe
And that cash that is in your leather fold
None is your own
None is your keep
And none is your crown of gold

And I'm tired of that white picket cross
And I'm tired of that white picket cross
Track Name: The Ashes
The Ashes

I threw old pictures away
I cleaned out my closet
I listened to music sway
from a long dead poet

I found a letter I burned
but I kept the ashes
a government seal
still remains
amongst charred withered pages

and it's hard to remember why
in an envelope kept inside
of a jacket you gave me
you side I'd look good in
the winter time

I drink my coffee
I turn on the news
the ticker screams of a war
we would win
bur we would surely lose

I turned over tables
like Christ in the temple
and I let your purple heart
fall like the victim 

and it's hard to remember why
with a war raging deep inside
of a jacket you gave me
you side I'd look good in
the winter time

and I missed you 
like a bullet misses a target
and kills someone else in the way
and as I lay sleeping I pray for the nightmare
that haunts my thoughts each day

where I can feel your body with me
but I know I must be dreaming
I wake without you baby and it's hard
not to be screamin'

and it's hard to remember why
and it's hard to remember her
but still I remember
love
Track Name: Part of the World I Like
Let the poets have their sunrise
and their windowpanes with rain
Let the mothers have their newborn cry
Let the farmers have their corn fields
with their amber waves of grain
Let the pilots have their skies

Cause baby you are the part of the world that I like
Baby you are the part of the world
Baby you are the part of the world that I like
Baby you are the part of the world


Let the storm clouds have their rivers
that will wash them to the sea
Let the drunk man have his high
Let the mountains have their snow peaks
like old men on parade
But let your heart have mine

Cause baby you are the part of the world that I like
Baby you are the part of the world
Baby you are the part of the world that I like
Baby you are the part of the world
Track Name: Remember You Used to Love Me
Remember You Used to Love Me

If you get tired of dealing with me
If your heart gets cold and heavy
and you want to leave
If you just can't sleep next to a liar

Remember you used to love me
Remember you used to call me home
Remember you used to love me

If our house becomes a place for ghosts
That haunt your troubled mind
and shivers your should
If you wish for a different life

Remember you used to love me
Remember you used to call me home
Remember you used to love me
Track Name: The Core
The Core

All your friends are lost
and you can not find a hand
Summer turned cold
and grass has turned to sand

You're a window pane with
broken broken glass
Reflecting the world
but only the past

Why don't you dig
to the core
Dig to the warmth
Dig 
and wait for them 
to come home

Time can cut you
like a bottle's broken edge
One day a cistern 
and the other a drudge 

And your family's name 
is no long a goal
It only tells them 
where to place your stone

Why don't you dig
to the core
Dig to the warmth
Dig 
before it's too late 
to come home

Live like you're going
Live like you're going home
