Track Name: Golden
Oh my word I've seen something that's good
Didn't think I could
All the sins I've done I would repeat
To get her to me

Rock me darling rock to sleep tonight
Stay with me until the morning time
If you leave before we wake
I'd swear to God my soul you'd take away

Made a list of things that we'd become
We'd settle none
Burn down all the doors that held us back
No looking back

Rock me darling rock to sleep tonight
Stay with me until the morning time
If you leave before we wake
I'd swear to God my soul you'd take away

Wipe the fear from our eyes
Strip me down to my disguise
I am bare where I lie
Pick me up pick me up

Rock me darling rock to sleep tonight
Stay with me until the morning time
If you leave before we wake
I'd swear to God my soul you'd take away
Track Name: Stomp, Clap
I'm sleeping in the next room over
Laying on the hard wood floor
My baby's living in her head
Can't find the way to me instead

Our brother's hiding in the corner
Wears a mask and speaks to no one
Trees are counting different shades
Numbering my days

Oh put down the telephone
Jump off the ledge alone
Lay down the gun go home
Don't listen to the radio

Who is the ghost in the machine
Is he as messed up as he seems
We are a mouse inside a maze
Born to live to entertain

Where is the man I was becoming
Hopped a train and kept a running
Oh they're leaving me behind
Left alone to die

Oh put down the telephone
Jump off the ledge alone
Lay down the gun go home
Don't listen to the radio
Track Name: Dreams of Yesterday
I miss my family
And nights that I could sleep
And the only thing keeping me awake
Were the dreams of yesterday

I ran from my hometown
Had a ticket out
Now the only thing keeping me away
Are the dreams of yesterday

If I am to die
Leave behind a ragged life
Tell my story slow
Make it sweet make it known

I washed upon your steps
Bruised and beat to hell
You hosed me down
Broken unwound
And I learned to love again

You hopped the first train home
Left me here alone
No I don't blame you
Nor do I choose
To learn to love anew

If I am to die
Leave behind a ragged life
Tell my story slow
Make it sweet make it known

If I am to die
Leave behind a ragged life
Let me stay with you
Till the dark fades to blue
Track Name: The Big Bad Wolf
Come on girl follow me
We're gonna take a ride down to the sea
Where buried treasure buried treasure lies
Buried deep beneath my heart inside

Baby sweet don't you know
I've been through this same old thing before
Fairy tale made up to relieve
Promises a man will never keep

I chopped down the cherry tree
Took some fruit and left the rest to bleed
Told a fib to save my tail
Only fooling you to fool myself
No one else

Say to me please forget
I'm like one that you have never met
Memories ripped up to begin
Patterns cycled time and time again

Darling dear face so sweet
I'm the baddest one you'll ever see
I'll blow right down your house made out of straw
And eat you up 'til I can't have no more

I chopped down the cherry tree
Took some fruit and left the rest to bleed
Told a fib to save my tail
Only fooling you to fool myself
No one else

Say to me oh

I chopped down the cherry tree
Took some fruit and left the rest to bleed
Told a fib to save my tail
Only fooling you to fool myself
No one else
Track Name: Dorothy Gale
I meant to play things right
To put the past behind me
Spend time in isolation
No reconciliation for lies
All lies

Daydreamer blind to love to light
Every spite please ignite

Gave everything I had
A way to get some back I thought
Turns out I'm pretty lonely
Without the world around me I see
Just me

Daydreamer blind to love to light
Every spite please ignite

Wake up my eyes It's time
Wake up my eyes and my life oh it's time

Daydreamer blind to love to light
Every spite please ignite
Track Name: The Man I Am
I thought I'd learned the come and go
Will I be selfish or alone
Always alone

I'll stay the night with you instead
Escape the walls in my head
These walls I dread

So just lay your head to rest on me
Stay till nothing's troubling you
Feel free to take my grin
I trust it'll find a safer ending too
For the fool I was sees nothing in the truth
And the man I am is only passing through

Marked walls by the door entail
Past hopes and ancient lovers fail
Always fail

Wine and whiskey will rewind
Catch me at a better time
Another time

So just lay your head to rest on me
Stay till nothing's troubling you
Feel free to take my grin
I trust it'll find a safer ending too
For the fool I was sees nothing in the truth
And the man I am is only passing through
