Track Name: Wrong Idea
Wrong idea

I believe it had to be
Feel it coming over me
Looking for the words I’d have to say

To get away with it somehow
See it so much clearer now
Might just be a hold-up on the way

Nowhere I could turn to then
All there was – means without end
Tried to move along against the day

Push the boulder up a hill
Like I had some time to kill
All the while it kept slipping away

Not knowing where to start
With a wrong idea in mind
Gotta set it right this time
Gotta override

I believe it really must be
For once some sincerity
Let the devil in the detail work for me

Put my finger on it now
Things are so much clearer now
‘Sorry’ never got me anywhere near

To knowing where to start
With a wrong idea in mind
Gotta set it right this time
Gotta override
Track Name: Revelations
Revelations

When I was a child
I used to run
Couldn’t hold my head up high
Never wanted to complain
Never asked the reason why
If I had a reason

Growing up they say
You’ll make your way
Always trying to succeed
But driven to a cause I failed
At what the world demands of me
I never felt so incomplete

Now the season’s ‘bout to change
To a new beginning
And the revenue of hope
‘s to what I’m clinging
Take a leap of faith and know
That the word once spoken
Fills the hollow, lifts the ground, leads into the open

When I was a child
I used to hide away
The ordinary me
All false hearts and broken vows
Made up the world that I would flee
If I had a reason

Now the season’s ‘bout to change
To a new beginning
And the revenue of hope
‘s to what I’m clinging
Take a leap of faith and know
That the word once spoken
Fills the hollow, lifts the ground, leads into the open
Track Name: Common Ground
Common Ground

Rolling in and out of town
Waiting for the crucial hour
Things ‘been heating up around me
Sure now that I won’t forget
What you did to me instead
I’ll be craving to redeem
What could’ve been

Though we reel on common ground
Just can’t wrap my head around
How to give up on this dream
Stolen years that barely count
Time stained wasted in the round
And still the truth remains unseen

I believe it's a common thing

Well, the hour’s getting late
Night flies by, I hesitate
Ain’t no sense in losing sleep
Call it quits and let it rest
Winner’s always second best
If the guilt is running deep

I believe it's a common thing

Strolling back through sullen town
Seeping air and bleeding ground
All it’s ever meant to be
Though I know I won’t forget
What you did to me instead
I’ll keep on bargaining this dream
Track Name: Rolling In The Roundabout
Rolling In The Roundabout

Roll, roll, hear them roll
Down the river, down below
So tired

Rolling in the roundabout
Don’t wanna be left out
Rolling in the roundabout
I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired

Oh sweet lonesome song
Telling me to come on home
So tired

Rolling in the roundabout
Don’t wanna be left out
Rolling in the roundabout
I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired

Catch that train down south
Given that much doubt
I grow tired, so tired
Catch that train down south
Don’t wanna be left out
I grow tired, so tired

Come frail fortune’s hand
Carry me across the land
So tired

Rolling in the roundabout
Don’t wanna be left out
Rolling in the roundabout
I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired

Oh soul, set yourself free
From your sweet captivity
So tired

Rolling in the roundabout
Don’t wanna be left out
Rolling in the roundabout
I grow tired, I grow tired, so tired

Catch that train down south
Given that much doubt
I grow tired, so tired
Catch that train down south
Don’t wanna be left out
I grow tired, so tired
Track Name: Waste Your Life
Waste Your Life

Coming up on the hillside I saw
Weary angels applauding
Me waging a war

For I fled all the places to feel
Seeming all too surreal
Get away from it all today

Planned my great escape
To the very end
With each morning a friend
Being lost to the bend

Don’t wanna waste your life
Don’t wanna waste your life
Around me
Track Name: Morning Sun
Morning Sun

I’m not scared
Of being moved
With nothing left to say
And nothing more to prove

Like an ancient rite
Upcoming dawn
With nothing to pretend
And nothing to be done

In the morning sun

And it hits me just
As I’m trying to look away
Maybe lying to keep things safe
When the tide has already turned

So I bite my tongue
Gotta wait it out
Let it cleanse the air
Of all the memories and doubts

In the morning sun
Track Name: The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore
The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore

When I was a curly headed baby
My daddy set me down on his knee
Saying, "Son you go to school you learn your letters
Don't you be no dusty miner, boy, like me"

I was born and raised at the mouth of the Hazard Holler
Where the coal cars rolled and rumbled past my door
But now they stand in a rusty row of all empties
Because the L&N don't stop here anymore

I used to think my daddy was a black man
With script enough to buy the company store
But now he goes to town with empty pockets
And, Lord, his face is white as the February snow

(chorus)

Never thought I'd live to learn to love that coal dust
Never thought I'd pray to hear those tipples roar
But, God, I wish the grass would turn to money
And them greenbacks would fill my pockets once more

(chorus)

Last night I dreamt I went down to the office
To get my payday like I done before
But them old kudzu vines was covering the doorway
And there was leaves and grass growing right up through the floor

(chorus)
Track Name: Oh Sweet Sanity
Oh Sweet Sanity

Sanity oh sweet sanity
Tell me what’s been waiting there for me
A song to whisper in my ear
Of a heart in woe so dear
Tell me what’s been waiting there for me
Of a spark that lit our tears
As the fall of man drew near
Sweet sanity
Forlorn isle across the sea

Saint Mary oh sweet Saint Mary
Tell me what the future holds for me
I prayed for to know and still waiting for thee
To tell me what the future’s meant to be
To dwell with my true heart in o sweet reveries
Leaving me to be
Oh Saint Mary

Remedy oh sweet remedy tell me
What’s been burgeoning in me
A sweet ole melody of a tale that was to be
Of mornings bright and merry I shall see
A sweet ole melody of a tale that was to be
Of mornings bright and merry I shall see
Of mornings bright and merry I shall see
Of mornings bright and merry
Farewell thee
