Track Name: killing the dove
The things that I say
With the words that I choose
Trying hard as I can to hand
An olive branch to you

Wither away
Drown in the soil
The good will be much better
When you find the better boy

What do I have to prove?
I can't keep proving my love
Is it forward we'll move
Or are we killing the dove?

Snowblind in South Carolina
Alive in the white and the blue
It took an extra fifteen minutes to get there
But we got the truck right through
Shotguns to the power lines
My cousin's barrel at my cheek
And I never wanted to kill something more

What do I have to prove?....
Track Name: shut mouth boys club
Shut mouth boys club
Walk and talk with me about your pain
Shut mouth boys club
Hold me when I cry and feel insane
You don't ask to join up

He said "shut up!"
He held his hands so tight against his face
You got some nerve
To tell me that my mind could work that way
Well he don't have to join us

How do you feel?
I don't feel good
Do I have to give all my feelings a name
We shut it out
We hole on up
Taught not to talk about it anyway

We sit here
Do these drugs
But I'd rather just hug you in the rain
Shut mouth boys club
Some of us we got something to say
Track Name: i'd try i'd try
I'd try I'd try
What's the use when I'm all used up
I'd give the teat of life another suck
But I'm too weak to feed

I'd try I'd try
You know I'd love to kiss your neck once more
And see your denim lying on my floor
But I'm too weak to feed

I feel so old and spent sometimes
But my mind feels like a child's
I feel I grow wiser every time
Every time I make you smile

I'd try I'd try
To start my days like the real man should
Go do something for the common good
For somebody in need

I'd try I'd try
To push along the stone of lore
And the magic tales I did before
They stole the mystics from me

But I feel those fables in your touch
As you rock me dreamily to sleep
But sometimes little one I feel too much
O, is there something off with me??!
Track Name: spillin'(live)
I'm so sorry ma
I'm so good at being unemployed
I still want you proud
I want you proud of your boy

I'm gonna figure it out
Maybe find a job close to home
I always felt like the useless one
I don't wanna be useless anymore

Ma I want to make
I wanna make this work
But right now I'm so wiped
I'm spillin' on my shirt
And I know you know I know you know I know
that the distance makes it hurt
I'll show you what it's worth

Game shows in the early afternoon
Grab a beer and a snack
Cartoons always on on Saturdays
I pour the ice tray down my back

At your house acting like I know you
At the record store I flip through the discount rack
It's all water cooler chatter
I pour the ice tray down my back

Ma.........
Track Name: new bridge(live)
Daggers of guilt
waiting for orders
Poised to strike
and pressed against my skin
And all the atoms
That make up this body
Are luminous with my weakness and sin

They're building a new bridge
That leads downtown
I drive past every well-lit labor zone
You can only fix
Your most local of problems
When you return to
that locale called home

Who's gonna pray
When all my dirty prayers come true?
Who's gonna pray
When all my dirty prayers come true?
Is it you?

Sometimes I'm alone because I'm angry
SOmetimes I'm angry because I'm alone
Sometimes I see
with clarity
Just how bad some things are gonna go

They're building a new bridge
That leads downtown
I may have to burn a few of my own
I hear what you're saying
I know you're trying to help me
But I don't like it
And I don't like your tone

Who's gonna pray
When all my dirty prayers come true?
Who's gonna pray
When all my dirty prayers come true?
Is it you?
Who's gonna pray
When all my dirty prayers come true?
Is it you?
SIng those new bridge blues
Track Name: suicide or dogwalking
There's no carrying on
with all this carrion
beside my bed
There's no peaceful sleep next to
the rotting and the dead

files corrupted
I can't use my device
until everything's updated
You won't treat me nice

If you're feeling you've regressed
It's probably out of stress
suicide or dogwalking
to get out of your head
blessings for the blessed
the touch, the taste, the breath
suicide or dogwalking
to get out of your head

Julie sat us down
She said "write 50 things you love"
I only got to 27
but it still felt so good

Mike's a healer
he's got potions on the shelf
"Have you ever seen a
wild thing feel sorry for itself"

If you're feeling you've regressed
It's probably just your stress
suicide or dogwalking
to get out of your head
blessings for the blessed
the touch the taste the breath
suicide or dogwalking
to get out of your head

the rotting and dead
next to my bed
If there's something you've repressed
If you're feeling depressed
suicide or dogwalking
to get out of your head
