Track Name: Jordan
My darling cries as she sits by my bed side
she swallows her pride
her smiles wearing thin she bites her tongue
the devil haunts me tonight
like arms around me and I will close my eyes
and my lid keeps holding strong
it's holding strong yea
I won't look back I'm trying
I won't think twice unless I fall
This could be my last
(this could be my last chance goodbye)
x2

I swear you were the one
well I swear you were the one

and when that chariot
comes down to take me to God
I'll hold my head in my hands
and beg the Lord
for one last song
and I'll pray, everyday
that this river might run dry.
I'll go back home, and I'll haunt my baby girl, tonight.

Now that Jordan river's wide,
and my baby's on the other side
I might just conjure up some
pride and bring my bones
back to life
'cause I swear you were the one

I won't look back I'm trying
I won't think twice unless I fall
This could be my last
(this could be my last chance goodbye)
x2
….'cause i swear you were there one
Track Name: Branches
we all know
yeah we all know
that the fathers of the daughters
that we loved would grow so cold
like the sea that deep blue sea
with its waves that tear the rocks and stones
that cling to what they know
i'll drive my car along the coast
the atlantic hides its secrets
where no man can ever go
oh oh oh

well where are you summer?
where have you gone?
this cold wind is changing me
to something that I'm not
where are you summer?
where have you gone?
this cold wind is changing me
it's changing me…yea

my branches grow as i am reaching for the sky
as water floods my feet and buries what i know
my rots will show i'm getting older as the river
swallows everything that i know

well where are you summer?
where have you gone?
this cold wind is changing me
to something that I'm not
where are you summer?
where have you gone?
this cold wind it's changing me
it's changing me…yeah
Track Name: Modern Medicine
well i wake up stomaches burning
guess I'll shake off all I've learned
and I know you better then me
so I can see how it's gonna be
city sidewalks keep on turning
your behind me now I'm running
I know I've been here before
the last time you walked out the door
why wait for the morning?
if we're gonna sleep again

Cause I had a place to rest my head
a girl to sing to me and oh my god
she'd wake me up with lullabies and buttercups
but I had a ringing in my brain
my thoughts divided me like lines
across the planet with my fingers
shaking frantically oh why?

born in Philly bound for Vegas
thought I lost it, I still made it
I've got this all to myself
you've got the cure right under your belt
there's revival down by Memphis
see the last train swear I'll take it
Cause I've gotten sick to my soul
Now I'm just looking for a hand to hold
So while I wait for the morning
I'll go to sleep again
So I'll await for the morning
I'll go to sleep again

(this bottom thing x 2)

Cause I had a place to rest my head
a girl to sing to me and oh my god
she'd wake me up with lullabies and buttercups
but I had a ringing in my brain
my thoughts divided me like lines
across the planet with my fingers
shaking frantically oh why?
Track Name: Garden Road
so I'll fall asleep
while I clench my teeth
I'll ask where am I going.
you'll ask where have you been?
because honestly, this can't be good for me
I'm searching for the center
as I'm circling around the edge, oh oh

let me go, I'm just a battleship and oh,
my sails are sewn, rip me apart
and patch me up, woah oh

perhaps I'm just a story, a fictional depiction
of a path not often chosen
you gave it to me, gave it to me

so I'll fall asleep
while I clench my teeth
I'll ask where am I going.
you'll ask where have you been?
because honestly, this can't be good for me
I'm searching for the center
as I'm circling around the edge, oh oh

as chariots of jesus, swing lower than before
they're setting fire to the gardens
that struggle just to grow,
and I say swing, chariot
I'm screaming oh hosanah
you're the one
you're the one
and he said live, live,
live a little, live a little
live

etc..
