about

These songs were written during a time of great heaviness.

Track Name: Too Much
i don't drink too much
i don't smoke too much
but too much is hard to define
i'm hanging by a single thread
and it's woven into your mind

i'm sick and tired
cause i worked all day
and my feet are dirty as hell
but you let me in to the warmth of your bed
like you fed me down into the well

take me down to the river
let me dip in the spring
bury me deep where my soul can't see a thing
and the water is safe to drink

the leaves have changed but there ain't no fall
from the clouds high up in view
the seas won't rise there's no tears in our eyes
to flow back into

i'm sick and tired
of far away
being so damn far from here
someday we'll be in that country that was promised
us all of these years
Track Name: Eugene
i woke you up
with my listening
to your heart beat song
and your breathing in
we'd been crying for
driving five hours straight
back into the state
it seems we can't escape
but Eugene made it home

Eugene fought the war and saved
a hundred lives or more
he always kept his family close
Eugene never told a lie
he asked his darling for her hand
he gave her diamonds without boast
left their prints on foreign sands
and sailed the ship to richest coast
and Eugene made it home

i did not know the man
but i shook his hand
felt the weakness grow
and my face turn red
cause i was not half the man
and i may never know
if i will make it there
but Eugene made it home
Track Name: Hard to Survive
i've got friends that i could not witness
i've got friends that i barely see
he's at his end and it's been a long time coming
to shed the skin and see the way it feels to bleed

and the sound of darkness echoes in the distance
and i've found that when i'm with him we drink till we're free

why is it so hard to survive in this world
with the debts of a hard city life
sorrow is found when the payment is down
why is it so hard to survive

it's midday and the sun is revealing
in it's own way, it's his own life he is stealing
burning fire, ball of flame in the center of his chest
your desire, find a way to carry it best

and the sound of darkness echoes in the distance
and i've found that when i'm with him we drink till we're free

she's out of her mind and wild with rage
she is striking you down and she will not be caged
she is breaking down walls you built behind your lungs
and with the crash of her tears make a straight path for the way she will run

why is it so hard to survive in this world
with the debts of a hard city life
sorrow is found when the payment is down
why is it so hard to survive
