Track Name: Take a Chance
Take a change on me. Take a chance and come see a beautiful world. Take a walk with me.Take a walk and come see what is waiting for us.

She's got that walk, I've got her hand. She's got my heart, beating in my chest. She's got that look, I can't deny. I'll hitch a ride and have a good time.

Come on dance with me. On the floor so I can see how that body can move.

Her breath on my neck. My hands on her waist. She's got my head spinning into space. She's got a fire I can't contain. Lets heat it up, and dance the night away.

Down the road to the small stream, lets get lost when it gets dark. About an hour, grab a quick drink and I'll meet you there. With some flowers and that tight dress, moon shining bright on your cold skin. I'll tell a joke, get you laughing. She's everything to me.

Take a chance on me, take a chance and you'll see a beautiful world.
Track Name: Waiting for You
Her shoulders bare, and the windows down. Hair in her face. Sun is warm today. She's got that kind of sway, that takes your breath away. What do you see when you look up? Are your dreams in the clouds? Are they off somewhere? Someplace you'll never see or could they be with me?

All my life, I've been looking for you. All my life I've been waiting for you.

Take a walk with me down this old road. We'll head to the swimming hole. Leave your cares behind. Leave your clothes behind.

And I'll show you a love that's wider than the sea. I'll show you, the way a man and a woman should be.

All my life, I've been looking for you. All my life I've been waiting for you.
Track Name: Camp Was Always Super Dramatic
Say that we've got a little more time to wonder if what we found is real. Say that we've got a little more time to spend here.
Say that we are strong enough to try. Close, but we've got a long, long way to go.

Go our own way with more hopes that answers running through out heads. Sometime next year, we'll pick up where we left off.
Young but we are dumb enough to try. Pretend for a week that what we have can somehow last.
Track Name: No Man Can Fight His Destiny
I hang them from a tree and I beat them till they scream. No man can fight his own destiny. Legion bound is mine, to conquer this whole world. But my tour is ending and I'm going home to her. For my last goodbye, three more must die. One says he's a king, lets make him a crown.

He's got a cross to bare and I've got nothing left to lose. With this nail and a rock. Two in the hands and I'll crucify you. I'll bring her this cloak, I won from the feet of a Jew. A tomb and a rock, three more days and I come home to you.

Imagine my surprise, when we woke that night. Stone rolled away, man we are screwed. Empty tomb inside, I think a saw a bright light. Where'd the body go man, what do we do? Then thunder shook the ground, it was chaos all around. I dropped all that I had boy, and ran like the wind.

Because I gave him that cross to bear and I got a lot of blood on my hands with this nail and a rock. I was never sorry to see it through. And I'll carry this cloak, something by which to remember you. A tomb and a rock, thirty-three years I guess he saw it through.

I hang them from a tree and I beat them till they scream. No man can fight his own destiny. Deserter now is mine, running for my life. But I won't forget that one got away.
Track Name: Going Home
I'm on a train, from the home guard running. Out in the rain, as those dogs come hunting me. Tell them boys, them boys, them boys I'm going home. Face down in the dirt on all fours I'm crawling home.

Passing through this town, looking to steal some supper. Keep heading south, that chill means winter is coming soon. In a barn out back on the floor freezing off my ass. Running scared with no doubt that if caught they'll send me back.

Sleep for a while. Make sure this thing is loaded. Need to start a fire, but they'll see. All the years I've been gone, her face a distant memory of someone that I had loved, but lost.

Coming over the hill, I see my home land calling. But standing in my way, the bounty man that's hunting me.

I shot and I fired, brother killing brother. Just another dead at my feet. All the blood I have spent, bought nothing but painful memories of all the men I have known who are gone.

Tell them boys, tell them boys, tell them boys, I made it home. Bleeding out, shot to hell, praise God I made it home. In a box, next to her, in the ground, I made it home.
Track Name: Mean Old Jake
Seven years for your sister. Seven more for you. And I'd work seven more years in these fields just to have you.

My feet are tired, my hip is hurt, from wrestling with him in the dirt. That's a hell of a way to bring me a sign. That's a hell of a way to change my mine.

It doesn't matter what you've done. You'll never be my favorite son. Born of a woman I never loved, property mine that I had won. Our blood may be the same, but I like my favorites more. If you looked like her, I'd probably love you much more.

It's not my fault, so don't blame me. Late that night I was deceived. There was a trick under that veil, and you were born from a man's betrayal.

So take your coat of a single color. Oldest son from an unloved mother. Learn your orders from another. For you will serve your younger brother.

My feet are tired, my hip is hurt, from wrestling with him in the dirt. That's a hell of a way to bring me a sign. That's a hell of a way to change my mine.

It's not my fault, so don't blame me. Late that night I was deceived. There was a trick under that veil, and you were born from a man's betrayal.
Track Name: Blue as the Moon
Pack up your bags girl, we're leaving tomorrow. The first train at dawn is always on time. Gather your things now. We're in quite a hurry. The service tomorrow is in the afternoon.

She blue, blue as her father. Blue, when the ending comes to soon.

Stop getting up boy, you're beat so don't bother. Bloodied and soiled, your eye swollen closed. Lie there in pain now. Stay up and wonder. You got what you came for, you going to take it or not.

He's blue, blue as his bruising. Blue, when you've lost your dreams.

Look up and see her, our mistress approaches. Waning a crescent, shining down on us.

The moon, she smiles like she knows me. The moon, my friend throughout the night. She blue, blue as our hearts are. Blue, blue as the moon,
Track Name: Take Your Time
Take your time, he's through talking about all those dreams that got wasted. Time has past, not tasted. He's alright, he's alright.

Take your time, she's through talking about all those dreams that got wasted. Time has past, not tasted. She's alright. she's alright .
Track Name: Not a Song About Drunk Driving
I'm trying to watch my speed. I'm trying to find these lines as the road moves side to side. I'm following this care. I'm watching his break lights. As they flash my eyes go blind.

Taking quick drink, and hiding it on the seat.

Several years passed by again, I wanted to go but I never left. And I know, and I know, and I know that I'm wasting time. This driving in circles never ends. It takes everything I have to spend. And I know, and I know, and I know that I'm wasting time. Following those dreams. I'll follow them like lights. Where do they lead to? Because I'm trying to make up time.

I'm fumbling on the ground, looking for my lost keys. I'm running from luck. Running from you and all your bad company. I'm staying up all night, because you're still haunting my dreams with a promise that I couldn't keep.

Taking quick drink, and hiding it on the seat.

Several years passed by again, I wanted to go but I never left. And I know, and I know, and I know that I'm wasting time. This driving in circles never ends. It takes everything I have to spend. And I know, and I know, and I know that I'm wasting time. Following those dreams. I'll follow them like lights. Where do they lead to? Because I'm trying to make up time
