Track Name: Kentucky Gentleman
Where’s all the good luck gone?
Is it runnin' out?
When it does, you’ll know where to find me

Look behind the bourbon on the bottom shelf,
I’ll leave a note there if i skip town

The longest shadows of the afternoon
Stretch out beneath the golden sky
Thats the time I’ll make my way free from all this worry
Pack up and leave it all behind

Where’s all the daylight gone?
Is it burning out?
I thought we saved it up for summer.

I’ve got a perfect plan to disappear
Fade into the light of the setting sun
Track Name: Feels Like I Might Disintegrate
I guess you noticed I’m not from around here
Feels like I landed here from outer space

There’s no train or jet airplane
Can take me back where I belong

Feels like I might disintegrate
If I don’t make it back home

Could you gather my belongings?
And bury them in your yard?

I’ve got the devil in my front pocket
Says he likes the way you say my name

Some folks waste so many words
Just to say a very simple thing

I've got an angel on my left shoulder
Says I never listen anyway

Some folks waste so many words
Just to say a very simple thing

Feels like I might disintegrate
If I don’t make it back home

Could you gather my belongings?
And bury them in your yard?
Track Name: Salty Brine
Been walkin that straight line
Now we're wading in the salty brine
And I'm twisting on the vine

Let it all wash out to sea
Treading water in the mid day sun
Waiting for the night to come

We're wading in the salty brine
I'm twisting on the vine

Been hunting for witches
Chasing ghosts in the light of day
Can't we chase them all away

The season is changin'
Days are shorter all the time
I'm twisting on the vine

We're wading in the salty brine
I'm twisting on the vine
Track Name: Polar Vortex
If the cold of winter chills your bones
You ain't felt nothin' yet

Its the empty feeling tugging your soul
Never learned how to deal with

We're all just chasin' the warmth of the sun
Another way to keep from coming undone
and carry on when it weighs a ton

We're falling further behind
when will we get ahead?

Can't blame a desperate guy for tryin'
Theres no use, cause there's no shame

Call it weakness or the human condition
Maybe they’re just one in the same

What is it that you think you know?
Are we filling up a bottomless hole
Will we have regrets when we get old

We're falling further behind
when will we get ahead?
Track Name: Sweetheart Suckers
Don't bring your girl to Knoxville
There something in the air
Or something in the water of the Tennessee
Girl’s gone crazy out there

So you've gone and lost your way
Hoping time will make everything okay
Never thought you'd let me down like this
No reason to stick around I guess

Girls are leaving out in Knoxville
Telling their sweetheart suckers goodbye
But if you bring your girl to Knoxville, Tennessee
She'll hang you out to dry

So you've gone and lost your way
Hoping time will make everything okay
Never thought you'd let me down like this
No reason to stick around I guess

Maybe I'll head back home to California
But I’ve got a feeling i should stay
I hate to think that I've been wasting my time
What an awful thing to say
Track Name: Elephant on a Rope
It's true our days are numbered
And my time is not my own

makes me feel so fucking crazy
My mind needs space to roam

It's your last chance, until your next chance.

What is this endless obligation
This black cloud follows me home

Feels like there's no escaping
Like an elephant on a rope
Track Name: East Texas
Its ok just take your time
It takes time to get there
Its alright if you’re losin' your mind
I think everybody's been there

It's alright, it's ok
If we don't know where we're goin'
Nobody really knows anyway
If they say they do, they're lyin'

If you tell me everything's gonna be ok
I'll tell you everything's gonna be alright

It’s ok, this here’s the longest mile
Might take a lifetime to get there

It's alright, to make a few wrong turns
Our destinations not going anywhere

It's alright, it's ok
At the end we'll be together

All those miles in between
we found just what we needed

If you tell me everything's gonna be ok
I'll tell you everything's gonna be alright
