Track Name: President
I once told you
Pick me if you dare
So you resurrected things
That never quite fared
In our world
Smothered them in callous love

You prospected winners
'Til something went wrong
The thieves and liars
They learned to write songs
You crossed me as their savior
Hung me out to wither and starve

I won’t be your president
So you should take me out
I won’t be your president
So you should shoot me down
‘Cause we all want love
Just like you do

There’s no more sun
Shining over my team
I finally found someone
To trample on my dreams

I won’t be your president
So you should take me out
I won’t be your perfect son
So you should shoot me down
‘Cause we all want love
Just like you do

Come over
Throw your stones
Build your city as I become unknown
Come over
Throw your stones
Build your empire I as become unknown
Track Name: The Brutal Beyond
Took the plunge now I can’t win
Tempted to commit some more original sin
I gotta find a way
I gotta find a way to choose
Not praying for my bride to be
Just working hard on my sanity
I gotta find a way
I gotta find a way to choose

Alone late at night
I got nothing left to do
Gonna try my hand at loving
Not think about the brutal beyond
The brutal beyond

Popping pills just to make me laugh
I’m chained down to my better half
When I’ve got no more time
I’ve got no more time to lose
Primed and groomed hanging at half mast
This looming dread covering my tracks
And I’ve got no more time
I’ve got no more time to lose

Alone late at night
I got nothing left to do
Gonna try my hand at loving
Not think about the brutal beyond
The brutal beyond

Alone late at night
I got nothing left to do
Gonna try my hand at loving
Not think about you
Track Name: Black Limousine
You’re done pushing papers, oh I know that wasn’t easy
But I’m not gonna stand by ‘cause this sight just makes me queasy
Acting so immune when the firing squad is calling
I don’t want to see you in a black limousine

Heading to the streets you’re going down
Pounding to the beat you’re going down
But if you’re going down I’m going down
Yeah if you’re going down we’re going down

Sleeping with your mess when the biggest storm is blowing past
A terrifying display when both our lives are burning fast
Under the disguise of an old fashioned gentleman
I don’t want to ride in your black limousine

Heading to the streets you’re going down
Pounding to the beat you’re going down
But if you’re going down I’m going down
Yeah if you’re going down we’re going down

I don’t want to be alone
I just want this for my own
I don’t want to be alone
I just want this for my own
Track Name: Saved
Drawing lines and shooting hairs
The best plans getting laid
Traded in an honest wage
The home that we had made
Ain’t no past to wring me dry

Save my soul don’t let it slip away

Wounded man gonna leave his mount
But I’m never gonna fold
My 19 year old flew the coop
She could never be controlled
But she kept me from growing old

Save my soul don’t let it slip away
I’ll take you out and load you up
You’re gonna show them what I love
I’ll take you out and load you up
We’re gonna show them what I love

Your favorite son has a trigger hand
The kids are out of luck
The fear is building in their hearts
Tonight they’ll self-destruct
‘Cause no one here is innocent

Save my soul don’t let it slip away
Save my soul don’t let it slip away
I’ll take you out and load you up
You’re gonna show them what I love
I’ll take you out and load you up
We’re gonna show them what I love
Save my soul don’t let it slip away
