Track Name: Thoughts All In
Now that the world isn't over
And we can keep getting older
And getting stronger opinions about things

I think I already told ya
I’m keeping you for the fight
Since you got fewer opinions about things

We keep it all on fire
We throw our thoughts all in
Burns from the top to the bottom now
And then we do it again

We’re building art outta nothing
Forming a chorus line
We’re painting faces with big globes for eyes

Baby we can make all this happen
We could keep each other awake
And I could keep on loving you more and more each day

We keep it all on fire
We throw our thoughts all in
Burns from the top to the bottom now
And then we do it again

Aaaahhhhh

We keep it all on fire
We throw our thoughts all in
Burns from the top to the bottom now
And then we do it again

We keep it all on fire
We throw our thoughts all in
Burns from the top to the bottom now
And then we do it again
Come on lets do it again and again and again and again and again
Track Name: What We Do
We got campfire songs in mason jars
Love lost ones tattooed on our arms
Vitamin D and elbow grease on tap
That what we got to bring
Yeah that’s what we got to bring

And we climb the tress to see the stars
Cuz the city can’t keep them from being ours
Gotta get a gulp of the light before we sleep
Cuz that’s what we have to do
Yeah that’s what we have to do

Yeah we do we do we do
Yeah we do we do we do

We got broken hearts up to our knees
Shame and guilt stuck in our teeth
And the fear of people dying knockin at our door
But that’s what we leave behind
Yeah that’s what we leave behind

Yeah we do we do we do
Yeah we do we do we do

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum ba-ooh ba-ooh

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum ba-ooh ba-ooh

Ba-ooh ba-ooh ba-ooh ba-ooh
Ba-ooh ba-ooh ba-ooh

We put our troubles on the moth’s wings. We open the windows.
We put our troubles on the moth’s wings. We open the windows.
We put our troubles on the moth’s wings. We open the windows
We put our troubles on the moth’s wings. We open the windows
We put our troubles on the moth’s wings. We open the windows
We put our troubles on the moth’s wings. We open the windows
We put our troubles on the moth’s wings. We open the windows
Track Name: Hooks
Trust me on this one
That hook of yours in my heart’s still there no doubt
It’s hanging on and I’m bleeding out

Sometimes it trickles out when I’m in Portland
Sometimes I leave drops on the chests of other men
But each time I cross that long bridge it comes gushing

It’s been a year of tedious silence
It’s been a long and thoughtful year since your last blow
That left this ringing in my ears don’t you know

Trust me on this one
That hook of mine in your heart’s still got it’s place
And I’m comin to pull it out with some grace

So many lives have died inside you
Sometimes I mistake you for a grave
But in moments as quiet as a hammock
There’s still that last one of you that I crave
There’s still that last one of you that I crave
Track Name: Shake
A man of solid oak and his fine new bride
Found themselves a farm by the river side.
Everything has changed yeah it’s all come undone
All they have now are their hand and the light from the sun.

The wind it came for days and days
And the earth did try to shake away our kind.
But they held on tight and a few survived
And they light their fires on the cold, cold, cold, cold night.

But the earth is still tryin to shake em down

Honey you go build a bonfire and I’ll can the farm
We could live this way for a long long long long time

Or till the earth stops tryin to shake us down

Then a man that came from oil and with no knowledge
Of how to grow the things that we need to live
Crept up the river bank from the other side
Stole everything they've grown by the dim moonlight.

When morning came the bride she wept
The man faced the empty farm and spit on theft.
He said boy you better run cause the earth decides
And people made of greed no they don’t survive.

Cause the earth is gonna shake the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.

What are you gonna do when the truth time comes
And you can not hide all the things that you have done.
What are you gonna say when they ask you why
you chose to live this way in your short short time

Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.

What are you gonna do when the truth time comes
And you can not hide all the things that you have done.
What are you gonna say when they ask you why
you chose to live this way in your short short time

Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.

Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
Track Name: Toll Free
I sure love my friends,
I’m happiest with them.
Smile lines in fashion, tears to ashes.
Front porch laughin music happens.

Cause freedom, freedom takes no toll
So go on, sing it till we’re old.

We’ll keep playin songs
As long as you will sing along
Get in our green bus lets go play some show---s.
Give us walls with love and call it home.

Cause freedom, freedom takes no toll
So go on, sing it till we’re old.
freedom, freedom takes no toll
So go on, sing it till we’re old.

Let’s go to the mountains
We’ll leave at the break of dawn
Once we’ve left all our burdens,
And all the bull ****’s gone
Gone gone gone gone gone gone…?
Track Name: Crisper
I wish I was 7 years old, I wish you were too.
Then we wouldn’t be so grown-up-y we’d have better things to do
Better things to do.

Now I think about the taxes and how much money I spend
Put the money in the crisper and make the bills real thin
Make the bills real thin.

And drain the worth right out a them
Drain the worth right out a them
Drain the worth right out a them

I can feel it on my shoulders it
Piles up over time I
Got another bag to carry this time
Honey it’s not mine
Honey it’s not mine

Just drain the weight right out a them
Drain the weight right out a them
Drain the weight right out a them

All the dollars in the big books
All the dollars in the big books
All the dollars in the big books
Count em up, mark em down

And drain, the worth right out a them
Drain the worth right out a them
Drain the worth right out a them
Track Name: Awhile
I could baby I think that I could, I could like, this lovin for awhile.
Cause I forgot what it felt like to feel like this and I could feel, feel like this awhile.
I know you as well as I can know you now without knowin, knowin you awhile.

And I can tell, this, baby this one’s gonna be good
Stop thinking bout the end when it’s just beginning
Hold my hand to make your head stop spinning
We’re spinning.

I could baby I think that I could, I could like, this lovin for awhile.
Cause I forgot what it felt like to feel like this and I could feel, feel like this awhile.

And I can tell, this, baby this one’s gonna be good
Stop thinking bout the end when it’s just beginning
Hold my hand to make your head stop spinning
Hold my hand,
We’re spinning.
Track Name: Holler It Down
We bring summer to the ground
We hold up our palms to the yellow-eyed sun
And we holler it down

And leave a trail of broken things
Like bottle-necked dolls oh their chests rise and fall
To the beating of their wings

We made up our minds to believe in the sable-tongued night
And full of our crimes they get into our mouth and our eyes
We go down down down down down…
We go down down down down down…
We are heavy handed now
We go

And tell your love to hide it well
Our bad bones are cradled by guns that shoot stars
from their angry old shells

And run… till August isn’t here
With wicked red heat flowing hard in the streets.
And we won’t come down my dear

We made up our minds to believe in the sable-tongued night
And full of our crimes they get into our mouth and our eyes

And Hades below
In our boat of stolen coins we go
Southbound and dirty with the rocks and the birds all around
We go down

And we’ll pretend it isn’t true
The night doesn’t keep us from running our mouths
And that’s just what we’ll do

And all our shoes are in a line
Like train cars they tap out the words in our hearts
As we run far out of time

We go down down down down down
We go down down down down down…
We are heavy-handed now
We are heavy-handed now
We go
Track Name: Daemons
The demons have come to introduce themselves.
They've come to make a home inside ourselves.
And they've come to battle
And they've come to win

Woohoooooo
Whoohooooo
Whoohoooo discipline
Whoohooooo don’t let them win

Don’t you be lazy
Don’t you be lazy
Don’t you be lazy
Don’t you be lazy

The deamons have come
The deamons have come
The battle to win
To break us in

Woohoooooo
Whoohooooo
Whoohoooo discipline
Whoohooooo don’t let them win

Don’t you be lazy
Don’t you be lazy
Don’t you be lazy
Don’t you be lazy

Aaahhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhh discipline
Ahhhhhhhhhhh don’t let them win
Track Name: ID (Annabell)
Annabell, how come your’e so free.
How do you walk out of a fire with a scrape on your knee?
Annabell, do ya think you can teach, teach that to me.
Can you be my bigger man, for me?
When I can’t be, when I can’t be.

Ooo ooo ooo

Annabell, how come you’re so free.
You walk out of a fire with a scrape on your knee?
Annabell, do ya think you can teach, teach that to me.
(To me to me to me.)

Anna bell the better part of me.
I can hear you speakin so logically
(You know the truth when, nothing else does)

Annabell it seems
Everytime it’s hard out here
The scarcer you’ll be
(You’ll be you’ll be, you’ll be).
Track Name: Back Now
I left once, never again, never again.
You kept it all in line
While I took the time
To myself
Selfish Self

But I’m back now (I’m back now)
Back now
I’m back now (I’m back now)
For Good

I left twice. never again, never again
You kept it all in line
While I gave the time
To someone else
Someone else.

But I’m back now (I’m back now)
Back now
I’m back now (I’m back now)
For good
