Track Name: Country On My Mind
Came down from the hills
North by northwest
Green around the gills
And easy to impress

The urge of youth
Pruned the family tree
Roots of generations
Weren't stopping me

Headed for the coast
Desperate for a change
But the city's full of shadows
And everyone's estranged

Crowds of people
You'll never meet
Flowing by
Staring at their feet

Chorus:
Try to push it down
But it's worse all the time
Stuck in the city
With the country on my mind

The city doesn't sleep
And neither do I
Doing all I can
And barely scraping by

Locked in a cycle
I can't seem to break
A dozen cups of coffee
Hardly keeps me awake

Chorus

Put in twenty years
Saving every dime
Counted every breath
Just to pass the time

All this time away
Searching for a home
Only to double back
To where I came from

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Gone
Rock salt and shovels
Ain't breaking through the ice
That's encased my heart
Since you stopped playing nice

Chorus:
You broke me down again
And I ain't getting up
You filled the emptiness
But this time I've had enough

Flowers, cards and candy
Ain't touching what you've done
No one see the damage
We don't talk to anyone

Chorus

Counting all week on going out
Then you took a double shift
You came home early half in the bag
And then you started in

Chorus
I'll be gone when you get up
Track Name: Restlessness
My best friends
They don't say much
Don't have to, it ain't their job

Just being there
Living those moments
It's why we have that bond

Late July
Cut the lights on 66
140 miles an hour

Passengers
Frozen to their seats
We just laughed til hurt

Restlessness
Pure abandon
The things that made us kids

Never died
Deep inside me
But in you I guess they did
In you I guess they did

Reaching back
For the reasons
That we made it this far

Brings up things
That we pushed down
Hid under the scars

Perfect days
Laying in the waterfalls
No one underneath could know

Soak it in
It's never gonna be the same
Once you got some weight in tow

Restlessness
Pure abandon
The things that made us kids

Never died
Deep inside me
But in you I guess they did
In you I guess they did
Track Name: All In
Stopped running
But I ain't settling down
Just in it
All goes south

Plan to fight instead
And get in your head
Sort through that sea
To you heart

You don't expect a landslide
It happens too fast
Can't stop
Once it begins

Wasn't planning a detour
But now I can't walk away
I guess at this point
I'm all in
I guess at this point
I'm all in

Stopped using
My past as a shield
Denying
What I feel

I'm turning around
Seeing differently now
The sum
Is more than it's parts

You don't expect a landslide
It happens too fast
Cant stop
Once it begins

Wasn't planning a detour
But now I can't walk away
I guess at this point
I'm all in
I guess at this point
I'm all in
Track Name: Ain't Coming Back
Well I waited for years
For something to change
I may be a downer
Least I'm not insane

It's time to face the truth
It's just a matter of fact
The good times are gone and they
Ain't coming back

Chorus:
They ain't coming back
No, they ain't coming back
The good times are gone and they
Ain't coming back

You've taken my time
Left me with pain
Tore up the place
Said I was to blame

Lucky for me
They've seen you overreact
The good times are gone and they
Ain't coming back

Chorus

You take the stuff
I'm hitting the road
Don't want to be there
When you finally explode

This is the end
Don't fake a panic attack
The good times are gone and they
Ain't coming back

Chorus
Track Name: Wild Rose
The path to her grave
Goes unmaintained
The brambles and the laurels
Frame the yard

In the darkest place you find
No monument or shrine
But a solitary flower
Stands en garde

So tonight we think of those
Lived life like the Wild Rose
Running, climbing where they will

They harden off fast and grow
And the lesson I suppose
Your time is short so get your fill

No footsteps to be seen
Suspicious lack of green
In the woods around
Her simple tomb

No sun can penetrate
That quiet, lonesome place
Yet still that little flower
Sets to bloom

So tonight we think of those
Lived life like the Wild Rose
Running, climbing where they will

They harden off fast and grow
And the lesson I suppose
Your time is short so get your fill
Track Name: Foxtrot Union
A dozen men on my lawn
Setup camp just before dawn
Taking aim at my friends
Life long neighbors and their kids

Chorus:
And it's gonna be a long day
Waiting around, waiting for it to go down
And it's gonna be a long time
Til we see them again
They ain't the types to give in

The cops had papers from the court
Take them out as a last resort
No one's saying what they did
Must've been big for a response like this

Chorus

Deadly silence coats the scene
Flash of movement behind the screens
Teams move in give the sign
Smoke pours out from inside

A crack of thunder and it's all done
Took them out except for one
And as they dragged him through the ruins
Heard him screaming Foxtrot Union
Foxtrot Union
Foxtrot Union
Foxtrot Union
Track Name: Close To The Vest
If I come off as unfriendly
It's just because my trust
Has been worked over
And it's starting to rust

Some things you learn the hard way
So now I do my best
To keep my opinions
Close to the vest

You coulda, woulda, shoulda, didn't
One too many times
I can't, I wont, I don't wanna
Hear your sorry lies

It's been more times
Than I care count
So, hey, why don't you
Count me out.....

I know you feel that I've
Done you wrong
Let me remind you
I'm the one you cheated on

Yeah I'm hot under the collar
But I'll take it as a test
To keep my opinions
Close to the vest

You coulda, woulda, shoulda, didn't
One too many times
I can't, I wont, I don't wanna
Hear your sorry lies

It's been more times
Than I care count
So, hey, why don't you
Count me out.....

Yeah I'm hot under the collar
But I'll take it as a test
To keep my opinions
Close to the vest
Track Name: Lost Not Found
Life's piling up around me
Push back but can't hardly breathe
It's tough to hide in the shadows
When you wear it all on your sleeve

Chorus:
Treading in deep water
The current's pulling me down
I'd like to think that I'll make it
But right now I'm lost not found
Right Now I'm lost not found

Maybe I'll see you tomorrow
It probably won't work out today
I'm desperate for your company
But I can't have you see me this way

Chorus

I'm not the type for surprises
But there came the knock at the door
I couldn't face the consequences
Won't returns the calls anymore

Chorus
Track Name: 1000 Miles
When the winter's dragging on
It can damn near last forever
When the darkness grows
More than you can take

Feel the pull of the ocean
Hear the sound of the break
In the static on the radio
When you're hardly awake

Gotta sinking feeling
I made an awful mistake
Now I'm dreaming of you
1000 miles away
Now I'm dreaming of you
1000 miles away

When the summer heat is on
It's easy to complain
The dust is everywhere
Can't remember the last rain

Feel the pull of the ocean
Hear the sound of the break
In the static on the radio
When you're hardly awake

Gotta sinking feeling
I made an awful mistake
Now I'm dreaming of you
1000 miles away
Now I'm dreaming of you
1000 miles away
