Track Name: Black
When everything has turned to black
You don't know where to go
You need something to justify your soul

Silences are broken
Confidence is gone
When everything you're holdin onto falls

Every body's selling truths
On every corner now
They wait until fear has knocked you down

All the rules are changin now
You're livin in sin
Everything around you's cavin in

And all you hold onto's slipping
Like water through your hands...

And you sing- lalala, lalala, lalala

Far off in the distance
Somewhere you can't see
Allegiances have formed your destiny

Opposition all around
Feedin off your soul
Trying hard to swallow up your hope

And demons all around you waiting
For you to sell your soul

They're singin- lalala, lalala, lalala
Track Name: Lemme Go
Babe where you think you're goin
Tryin to drag me down but i think you're just a little late
So desperate just to get me to follow
Well I'll be good tomorrow, but tonight I'll have another drink
All the guilt in the world won't make me feel anything

Well you can take me down to the water 
And wash me clean oh
And i'll say no oh oh, no oh oh
Baby no oh oh 
i won't ever go
Drag your chains around me 
And save my unfortunate soul
And i'll say no oh oh, no oh oh
Baby no oh oh 
i won't ever go

Babe- what you're tryin to do yeah
Trying despretly for me to see all my evil ways
The harder that you're pushing me to follow
It's only makin me, yeah it makes me wanna run away
I got no regrets and I'll never feel ashamed

Chorus

if you really love me, if you really love me then let me go (4x)
Track Name: Slow Down Love
You try to change the way you're feeling 
But you've lost it all
All the challenges you're given
Have proved to be too strong

You're the only one to blame
You keep running but you can't escape
Your perfect life's fadin away

You gotta slow down love
Before it takes you down and you let it slip away
Don't slip away
You gotta slow down love
Before your lights go out and the devil's made his way
Only the brave
Will make it out before it gets too late

You're trying hard to find forgiveness
In a sea that's full of lies
And even though you're feelin helpless
You still put up a fight

You truly thought that you had learned
After watchin all your treasures burn
But you're inchin closer to the flame

Chorus

All the warning signs are gone
Oh you're barely hanging on
No one's left to hear you scream
The silence is deafening

But there's something still inside
And it's keeping you live
It's hidden in the dark
Maybe you're stronger than you thought
Track Name: Monsters In Your Head
You fought the good fight
And you thought you won all of the battles
That left you here
The armor your wore and the shield you held up
Didn't matter
You still live in fear

So where does this leave you
Where does this stop
Where do you go from here

Just, look to tomorrow
Look straight ahead
Don't be discouraged
Don't let them win
There's no use in crying
It's not the end
Don't listen to those
Monsters in your head

Darkness is setting in
You’re giving way to the voices
Believing them now
All of the goodness that once lived inside
Now is haunted
Can't find it's way out

So where does this leave you
Where does it stop
Where do you go from here
Track Name: Sinners & Saints
Prayin harder now than I ever did before
It's almost over now, I'll be worrying no more
Who will save this wreckless soul of mine
Who will save me tonight

Seconds counting down and I'm holding my last breath
My heart's pounding hard, soon I'm gonna be laid to rest
Where I'm going I must go alone
Who will save my soul

Oooh ooooh

Sinners take me down while you're laughing in my face
Cast your judgement then forget me and walk away
Don't look in the mirror you might see
You’re so guilty just like me

Oooh oooh oooh

Only moment's left, my time is running short
Don’t know what comes next, so I'm praying out to my Lord
Hell's begun or ending guess I'll see
Who will come and save me

Oooh oooh oooh
Track Name: Nothing Left To Lose
If you could know what i was feeling
You'd know that i belong with you
An endless love never defeated
Living, dying here for you

And every day seem it will never end
I fall alseep to wake and it all starts over again

I got all the time in the world
And every night to think of you
And empty seems to last forever
But I guess I've got nothing left to lose
Nothing left to lose

I gave my heart when it was beating
And handed it over to you
And it was so beautiful when it was needed
Now it's, all messed up left in ruins

Now every day seems longer than the last
And all the faces come and go but nothing heals the past
 
I'm left with...
All the time in the world
And every night to think of you
And every moment lasts forever
But I guess I've got nothing left to lose
Nothing left to lose
Track Name: Try
Feels like yesterday 
When we were making love
But now it's all messed up
This way

I thought I'd make it
I thought that I'd move on
But now it's been so long 
And nothin's changed

Oooh, can't believe your gone
Oooh baby this feels so wrong

It's been awhile since I let you go
And it's only getting harder now
It's been awhile and you need to know
You're all that i can think about
We've been down this road for a while now 
And I can't get you off my mind
It's been awhile since I let you go
Maybe we should give it one try

I've spent some days yeah
Trying to justify
Why you're not in my life 
And we're apart

The more I let go
The more I want you back
The more I can't accept
This broken heart

Oooh, this can't be right
Oooh I need you in my life

Chorus

One More try 
One more try
One more, one more,
One more try
Track Name: Bad Bad Man
My man is reckless
Everybody lives in fear
But he gives me sweet sweet lovin'
And he's sure damn good to me
Oh he's sure damn good to me

He's the portrait of the devil
And i'm underneath spell
But he always comes back home to me
When he's finished raisin hell
Oh my boy can raise some hell

Go ahead and judge me
You better call the priest
Tell him there's a devil inside of me

I don't care if you think I'm wrong or right
He's a rebel and he's dangerous
But he keeps me warm at night
I'm in love
I'm in love 
With a bad, bad man
I'm in love
I'm in love 
With a bad, bad man

My man is trouble
But he's sexy and he's mine
He can blow shit up yeah all day long
But I'll always stand by his side
Yeah I'll stand right by his side

Go ahead and judge me
Tell me that I'm wrong
Pray for me cause I'm not coming home
Track Name: One More Night With You
They say i'm in denial
Because i can't let go
I don't care about what people say
I'm doing all i know
I turn your music up
And I close my eyes
And I can feel you here 
For one more night

Oh your water glass is in the same place you left it
I know it's been 3 months, but i can't accept it
Your bed's still unmade and i like it that way
So I won't have to face it for another day

Oh it hurts too much to say goodbye
So I'll just sit here with you one more night
I'd rather live in this lie than live in truth
if I get to spend one more night with you

This can't be happening
It was just a bad dream
If i go on pretending
It won't be real
But every now and then
I call your name out loud
And it hits me so hard
It knocks me down
 
Oh your water glass is in the same place you left it
I know it's been 3 months, but i can't accept it
Your bed's still unmade and i like it that way
So I won't have to face it for another day

Chorus

One more night with you
One more night with you
I'd rather live in this lie
Than live in truth
Oh, if I get to spend one more night with you
Track Name: Blame Me
So what, it's not what you thought it was 
I'll never live it down
You wanted more than what i was capable of givin
So go and spiral down
You don't know, oh oh oh 
Why you're alone, oh oh oh


It's a big bright world
But you're fallin apart now baby
Yeah baby
You got some gold in your pocket 
But it's burning a hole
You blame me, you blame me
You get a little bit scared so you never go out
To see what it's supposed to be
It's a big bright world
But you're fallin apart
oh baby
you blame me
you blame me

So go ahead make it all my fault
It doesn't matter to me
Trade all your charm and your sanity for
Admitting defeat
You don't know, oh oh oh 
That you're joke, oh oh oh 

Chorus

You never take the blame
Livin with all the shame
Can't understand why life turned out this way
Waiting for a better days
But don't wanna make a change
It doesn't matter what I say...
Track Name: I Was In The House When The House Burned Down
I had the shit till it all got smoked

I kept the promise till the vow got broke

I had to drink from the lovin' cup

I stood on the banks till the river rose up

I saw the bride in her wedding gown

I was in the house when the house burned down

I may be old and I may be bent

But I had the money till it all got spent

I had the money till they made me pay

Then I had the sense to be on my way

I had to stay in the underground

I was in the house when the house burned down

I was in the house when the house burned down

I met the Man with the thorny crown

I helped Him carry His cross through town

I was in the house when the house burned down
I was in the house when the house burned down

I met the Man with the thorny crown

I helped Him carry His cross through town

I was in the house when the house burned down

I had the shit till it all got smoked

I kept the promise till the vow got broke

I had to drink from the lovin' cup

I stood on the banks till the river rose up

I saw the bride in her wedding gown

I was in the house when the house burned down
Track Name: Black to Gray
I am stronger now
Than I ever was
I am braver now 
Than I ever was
I can see that it's a long way down
But I am stronger now, than I ever was

I am harder now
Than I ever was
And all that's sacred now
Didn't mean enough
I can see that it's a long way down
But I am stronger now, than I ever was

Love left me here tonight
Drowning down beneath the lies
All has gone away
And faded black to gray
Love left me here tonight

I am colder now
Than I ever was
Silence haunts me now
But I'm not backin’ down
I can see that it's a long way down
But I am stronger now than I ever was
