Track Name: Had I Known
Verse:
Had I known trying would have been harder
If I'd seen, would I have avoided the slaughter?
Would it doubt, even if it was clear?
Would I stay even if I knew nothing was here?

Verse:
I woke up to a biting wind
A light shined but was dim
The clouds came and made the sky go black
And I knew that light wasn't coming back

Chorus:
I can't find my way back home
Unless some light begins to glow
But it doesn't look like it will show
So I can't find my way back home

Verse:
All the birds mocked me with a song
Maybe they know what will happen before long
Disappointment fills my mind
Divine appointment looking better all the time


Chorus:
If I knew just where I'll go
Would I try to take it slow?
If I rushed ahead of the game
Would I stand to have anything gained?
Would I try to find my way back home
Even if that light never glowed?

Outro:
I don’t know
Track Name: The Morning
Verse
I remember the day that’s gone
The flowers danced in the sun
And all that was was so young
But then the night had to come

Verse
Golden grains had sung
A song of hope, of gilded love
And all the willows gently hung
The morning hummed with calls of doves

Bridge
I want to go back to where I came from

Chorus
The morning
The morning
The morning

Verse
All the air left my lungs
As the clouds came and night begun
The earth shook my head spun
As the moon came to kill the sun

Bridge
For now I cant go back where I came from

Chorus
The morning
The morning
The morning
Track Name: Redrock
Verse
Clear my head
End up filling it with junk instead
Pain enclosed
Went down to Redrock seeking out some repose

Verse
Pale powdered red
Rocks colored long ago when the earth first bled
Dry and cracked
Praying that the rain will bring some moisture back

Verse 3
Try to sleep
I know these feelings will never be beat
It's too hard
Being far from Redrock; unable to see the stars

Chorus
I know
Where they'll lay my bones
I know
I belong among those stones
Track Name: Took Two
A cross there by the rod
Another coming soon
Carrying a load
Thoughts went out to you
Buried in the sun
Fresh graves for those slew
Along the dusty run
Tonopah took two

I wonder if anyone's sad

Mountains dark and still
Suaros hung their heads
Peckers calmed their bills
While clouds read for the dead
My heart was quickly chilled
By whispers that they said
Said I fit the bill
Of tonopah's next kill

What did they do?
Who did they use?
I did it too.
Won't be surprised
When tonopah takes me too

What did they do?
Who did they use?
I did it too.
Won't be surprised
If tonopah takes me too

Flesh rots from the bone
Paint thins on the wood
The cross gets overgrown
By earth just as it should
My eyes sought out some cure
I'd know it when I'd see (it)
Something to make pure
The wretchedness in me

What did they do?
Who did they use?
I did it too.
Won't be surprised
If tonopah takes me too
Track Name: Take Some Time
Verse
I guess I'll just take some time
Check out my mind
Go numb for a while and
Take it apart

That won't hurt a bit
When I reconstruct it
It's sleeping and I don’t think
It will come to

Verse:
It wasn't always hard
To think this far
Didn't have to fight myself
Just to be here

I guess I'll just take some time
Sift through the grime
So I can get back and feel like I
Actually exist

Chorus:
I don't know what to make of it
I don't think there's any shaking it

Verse:
I guess I'll just take some time
Check out my mind
Go numb for a while and Take it apart
Track Name: You'll Go
Verse
Stayed up till the sun
Watching what the night is slowly to become
June bugs have their fun
Just a couple days then there'll be none

Chorus
And just like that
It goes to black
Wings don’t fold back
Shell begins to crack

Verse
So watch the sun
And thank the Lord for everything that’s come
You’re almost gone
So don’t go wasting on whats already been done

Chorus
Because just like that
It will go to black
Wings wont fold back
Shell will have cracked

Outro
And you’ll be sitting there wondering
Just where the night has gone
And then you’ll go x3
And then I'll go
