Track Name: Heartsick Man
Baby, baby, I'm a heartsick man
and what can you do with a heartsick man?
There's nothing I can offer you
but a heart that's beaten black and blue

"You'll catch your death out here," she said
to which I replied, "hey what can you offer me instead?"

Baby, baby, knew all the while
Baby, maybe I was in denial
There's nothing I can offer you
What do you expect me to do?

"You'd better make up your mind," she said
To which I replied, "hey my mind ain't made up yet"

Baby, baby, now watch me go
It ain't nothing but a thing, I know
There's nothing I can offer you
The hole I'm digging ain't got room for two
Track Name: Not My Time
Who gives a damn about tonight?
We won't remember come the light
and I don't wanna fight

Who gives a damn about our plans?
We'll end up doing what we can
with the lay of the land

Who gives a damn to wonder why?
The truth is hurtful so we lie
It's not my turn, it's not my time

It's not my time, I've acted premature
I see it in your eyes
No one really knows us, all we've
ever told are lies
like it's not my time, it's not my turn
it's not my time

Who gives a damn? We're on the run
We ran too far, we lost the sun
all of us, everyone

Who gives a damn? Hell, we've got time
We've got our health, we're in our prime
and it's not my turn, it's not my time

It's not my time, I've acted premature
I see it in your eyes
No one really knows us, all we've
ever told are lies
like it's not my time, it's not my turn
it's not my time
Track Name: Cloud O'er My Head
Oh the cloud o'er my head wants me dead, wants me dead
Oh the cloud o'er my head wants me dead
When the rain soaks the ground in that North Texas town
and I stay in the warmth of my bed
Dread seeps through walls and it flows down the hall
to my room where it fills up my head
and the cloud o'er my head wants me dead, wants me dead
wants me dead

Oh the cloud o'er my head wants me dead, wants me dead
Oh the cloud o'er my head wants me dead
Whatever I say and wherever I run to
there's clouds forming over my head
As common despair fills the darkening air
I regret what I've done, what I've said
and the cloud o'er my head wants me dead, wants me dead
wants me dead

I've been a gambler all my life
and I like to gamble with my life
I've been a gambler all my days
I've got dues that I cannot pay

Oh the cloud o'er my head wants me dead, wants me dead
Oh the cloud o'er my head wants me dead
If sleep won't be gracing my body tonight
then I'll stare at the ceiling instead
Sadness and fear ring abundantly here
and happiness hangs on a thread
when the cloud o'er my head wants me dead, wants me dead
wants me dead
Track Name: Dying Slow
Lost my way, still ain't found it
I've got no map, done without it
What good is navigation
without a destination?
All I've known is growing old
and saving up, and dying slow

And the way's foretold
so I took another road
and I sold all my belongings
to lighten up my load
and the way's foretold
so I buried all my gold
and I drew a different picture
and I…

…met a man, he had his boots on
He seemed so sure, the path he walked on
I asked him if his way is clear
then where he plans to go from here
He said next stop's growing old
and saving up, and dying slow

And the way's foretold
so I took another road
and I sold all my belongings
to lighten up my load
yeah the way's foretold
so I buried all my gold
and I drew a different picture
and I died out in the cold
Track Name: Devil Passes Over
Nobody knows just where or why
but he's coming down here with a shotgun
to take your life

They say he comes to town at night
and run and hide, no doubt about it
you're gonna die

And all this talking gets us nowhere even slower
The whole town's hoping that the devil passes over

I heard he lives up on a hill
and from his place up on the hillside
he does his will

Is he the devil or is he a man?
I ain't ever seen a man who can do
do what he can

And all this talking gets us nowhere even slower
The whole town's hoping that the devil passes over
Track Name: Where I'm Going
When I get to where I'm going
I'll breathe easy, I'll sleep deeply
I'll never hurry, never worry
when I get to where I'm going

When I live down my darkest demons
and I stride that desert wide
When I get loose man, from the noose man
and I live down my darkest demons

Yeah, where the living is easy
Oh, that's where you're gonna find me
Yeah, I've been traveling a long way
getting there the wrong way

When I sit above the sadness
and the sunset hasn't come yet
I won't care how I got there
when I sit above the sadness

When I get to where I'm going
I'll breathe easy, I'll sleep deeply
I'll never hurry, never worry
when I get to where I'm going

Yeah, where the living is easy
Oh, that's where you're gonna find me
Yeah, I've been traveling a long way
spending all my money
Track Name: One And The Same
I know that you're drinking whiskey
I much prefer bourbon instead
But sitting up there on that barstool
I can't get you out of my head
Late nights come early for me, don't you see?
I'm lucky that you stumbled in
Normally I'm stuk in here by myself
waiting for the music to end

I'm not the guy you could bet on
But I bet that that's easy to tell
I don't even know why you're here tonight
We've all got our personal hells
One three-letter word stands between you and me
I know that I'm taking a chance
Maybe it's forward but the way that I see
it beats wasting time on a dance

I won't pretend that I love you
if you don't pretend that I can
I won't even try to take the bottle away
if for one night I could be your man
I don't need your number, I don't need a key
I don't even need to know your name
We're just drinking our sorrows away 'till tomorrow
It seems to be we're one and the same

We're just drinking our sorrows away 'till tomorrow
It seems to be we're one and the same
Track Name: Don't Worry About My Name
Don't worry about my name
I'd rather keep it to myself
It hasn't got me much of anything
Hasn't got me any wealth
Well I may be here for a while
but how long I don't know
So save me the trouble of thinking up
a new one when I go

Don't worry bout my name
Call me stranger if you must
Because I'm not the kind of man
That you'd really wanna trust
And I keep one eye on the road
and one eye on the sky
because I'm not very good, you see
at keeping up with lies

Don't worry about my name
I will tell you once again
It won't get you much of anything
telling people you're my friend
Oh, but if I ever was unkind
don't pay it any mind
It's just my way of making sure
that you're not hard to leave behind

Don't worry about my name
if you see me in a crowd
Because nobody around here
wants to hear that name out loud
Well I've been everywhere at some point
and I will be again
I've been chasing after city lights and
waiting for the end

I've been chasing after city lights and waiting for the end
