Track Name: Lucillia
I'm done pretending that I can be someone who's ascending all the ladders of this world but I got someone that I can hold onto and it's you yeah it's you
Guess I've grown up taking my sweet time maybe I've blown up all the states of my mind but you better believe me cause I got something that's true
Lucillia you got a hold of my heart
Lucillia don't keep it all inside
Lucillia we should stay friends for just a little while longer till it goes somewhere
I've got a feeling that I can't feel I've been wondering what's beyond that hill cause there's a freedom in losing myself in you
Lucillia you got a hold of my heart
Lucillia don't keep it all inside
Lucillia we should stay friends for just a little while longer till it goes somewhere
Track Name: Lonely Mountain
I took the long road I took the long road back to you. I wasn’t blinded I was looking for something to do. High lonely mountain I hear you calling out my name. Somewhere out beyond the city where life can get so strange. I took the long road I took the long road to you. Now I can see the water coming back into my view. High lonely mountain I hear you calling out my name. Somewhere out beyond the city where life get’s so insane. But tonight we’re gonna be alright. In the morning we’ll hang around. From now on I will understand you.
Track Name: Been Down
Low down look around take me in the morning then you shut me down
Thin wall gone away looking for the best of my days
Take me take it far summertime when the loving calls you been
Blowed out to the wind either way I know that I been down.

Pulled deep from the ground hung it high when you hung around and went
wayside back again told me that you'd be my friend
Came home held the hand packed her bags then she left again and said
Pull me from the ground either way I know that I been down.

Sunk hard like a bite, struck the chord of the evening light and went
Full steam turn it on whiskey bottle till it's gone
Loves hard makes you cry love is hard it will make you die
Come back steal the rain flowing like the blood inside my veins.
Track Name: Blue Mountain Molly
out in Kentucky met a girl named molly we had some dinner and a drink or two
now my heads spinning i found religion i kept a photo of what we went through
we drove my pickup out over Whitesburg i heard the crickets and the snakes and squirrels
out to the holler blue mountain molly she made me do things that i swore id never do
out in the country i saw my family grammas and grandpas and the devil too
i started screaming burning and bleeding the flaming reds and the greens and blue mountain molly...
molly's got a thing for me she keeps me warm and feeling free tries to give me comfort in the loneliness of night molly's got it out for me she trips me up when i can't see leads me to the deepest and the darkest of my fright
back to the city my life ain't pretty i got a secret that I can't declare
that girl named molly blue mountain molly only the devil knows i buried her out there...
Track Name: Pick Yourself Up
You walked the line for much too long
Undying love has come and gone
Her golden hair and killer eyes
That made you weep under the sky
You lost a friend of many years
All is lost when you're living in fear

You had time and you had space
But couldn't run one simple race
Through hills and trees and kettle ponds
You marked the path with willow wands
Nobody's gonna keep you down
You just have to pick yourself up

So don't try looking in her mind
It's all downhill until you're fine
and you know that love will make you blind for sometime

Close your eyes but you don't sleep
You see the climb but it's too steep
Your body's broke and broken down
You put your head against the ground
It hurts to know that you were wrong
but you can sing a brighter song now

For all the times you took her name and all the times you played the game
Cast the line and reeled it in and caught the unforgiven sin
But nobody's gonna keep you down
You just have to pick yourself up

So don't try looking in her mind
It's all downhill until you're fine
and you know that love will make you blind for sometime
Track Name: Goodbye Blues
you woke up today the sun was on your face
looking for a reason looking for your place
oh thoughts of other times when your life was true now its time for moving on you gotta leave those goodbye blues

people come and people go yeah you've lost some friends
you cheated and you stole you even lost some bets
oh but learning don't come easy sometimes you gotta lose take what you can get and leave those goodbye blues

all the miles that you've walked all those lovers that you loved people talking all their talk they might push and they might shove oh but everyone is changing they're trying on new shoes maybe you should try on some and leave those goodbye blues

remember where you come from and know where you can go take care of your loved ones take the time to grow and keep following your heart what do you got to lose nothing but your troubles and all those goodbye blues.
Track Name: Traveller
I am a traveler at the speed of light, I don't know where I'll be sleeping tonight
But If you see me won't you please shine your light I'm just a boy
The World is spinning and it's out of control, too many people with nowhere to go
Just when you start to think that you're on a roll you get stranded
I wish that we could go back in time
We were young and we were feeling alright
I could hold you and you could be mine for a while
Too many cars, not enough gas
Too many losers that try to get past
Too many addicts living to fast and going nowhere
She was a poet and a writer of songs
Stuck in the middle of a world gone wrong
Never going where she could belong but where she was chosen
I wish that we could go back in time
We were young and we were feeling alright
I could hold her and she could be mine for a while
Too many fools, not enough gold
Too many people that do what their told
Too many faces never get to grow old and I wonder
I wish that we could go back in time
We were young and we were feeling alright
I could hold you and you could be mine for a while
But the days turn to rain, and I just smile and refrain
She just called me insane but I just wasn't listening
Track Name: FFTM
I'm not the child I used to be
Everything is upside down and blue
My friends don't even know me
They gave up when I told them what I had to do
And all the dreams I dreamed of
Got buried when I had to make my plans
It's hard enough to get by, but it's harder when you're fighting for the man

I look around these battlefields
Everything is bloody and intensified
And religion drives us crazy
And the government deceives us when they're telling lies
You can say that it's for freedom, but either way i'm doing what I can
I signed up for a second chance instead I"m stuck here fighting for the man

My father told me that life was never fair
He worked his whole life and he didn't even care
He loved his wife and family
And he would fight for his country
And even though they took all that he had
He taught me how to work hard for the man

It's a long way back to living
When everything has changed inside my head
They tried to break my spirit
They tried to tell me I would wind up dead
But i'm coming home a new man, and if you want to you can lend a hand

I'm proud to be American but I sure as hell ain't fighting for the man.
