Track Name: Sharks
She stuck a cigarette right in between her lips
and then she crossed her legs
He struck and match and turned to her
Smoke rose it began to burn
Twisting past their heads
Oh baby don’t, baby don’t

There are sharks in the water.
Sharks on the street
You can talk about morality, but we’re just meat.

Saw a shark at the dance club,
he had trouble with his fist pump
Met a shark at an atm – seemed cool till he ate his friend
He was going at those legs
He was snappin’ on those legs
Oh baby don’t, baby don’t

There are sharks in the water
Sharks on the street
You can talk about morality but we’re just meat

Prowling through behind a barstool they eat em’ up
Vacuum up your wallet too. Suck it up
Lurking just out of view, they lick their lips
Out on the street, we’re little fish
Oh baby don’t, baby don’t cause

There are sharks in the water
Sharks on the street
You can talk about morality, but we’re just meat
(talk about morality but we’re just meat)
You can talk about morality, but we’re just meat.
Track Name: Bluebonnet Trail
Fire’s burning; come sit down
I had some food; it’s gone now
Lifes not bad, though often sad
Always sweetest looking back
These flames have got me lit
I’ll soon be on my way
To find my way back to Bluebonnet Trail

Everything seems smaller now
My head is farther from the ground
These hills once made it hard to breathe
Now just roll beneath my feet
The sign said almost there
The next one farther still
But ill find my way back to Bluebonnet Trail

It’s been so long,
It’s been so long,
It’s been so long,

Golden grass all overgrown
Shattered bottles broken stone
I was there; I was alone,
When cheeks are wet,
the air is cold
I ran my fingers down
The sign saying almost there
As I made my way out of Bluebonnet Trail
Track Name: Me With You
If I could show the love I have inside me
to you, I bet you’d be amazed
It’s all been bubbling and burning
trying to find a way to escape

Well let’s just say you understood and asked me to be good to you
I’d finally get to show you how I’d treat you if I was allowed
If you just said what the hell, and popped on by to ring my bell
Id make sure that you really knew
How very good is me with you

I’ve ached for you to see me
and know just who I am
I feel on fire, I do
But all you see’s a man in front of you

So lets just say you understood and asked me to be good to you
I’d finally get to show you how I’d treat you if I was allowed
If you just say what the hell and pop on by to ring my bell
Id make sure that you really knew
How very good is me with you

I need you to take
All I can give
But im weak
And I don’t know where to begin

So lets just say you understood and asked me to be good to you
I’d finally get to show you how I’d treat you if I was allowed
If you just say what the hell and pop on by to ring my bell
Id make sure that you really knew
How very good is me with you
That’s all I really want to do
Track Name: All for Something
I was outnumbered. I was outgunned.
But surrender simply wasn’t an option
With my chin up, in position,
I was ready for a suicide mission
Then she finds me
And she guides me
Whispers don’t worry
This is all for something

My father held me as a boy, told me suffering would carve a place for joy.
Love the truth, find your voice, and use it when the bully’s taking other kids toys
But I’ve been worn down. My body aches, and everyday I think I’m just a bit more afraid
And I’ve cried, even though I said I never would

Then she finds me
And she guides me
Whispers don’t worry
This is all for something
Almost time now, breath running out
I become so cold

Then she finds me
She guides me
Whispers don’t worry
This is all for something
Track Name: After Moon
CRAZY HOW THE EARTHS BEEN SPINNIN’ LATELY
CAN’T LOOK UP WITHOUT THE SUN AND MOON TRADING PLACES
SWEATIN’ THROUGH MY JACKET IN ENDLESS FEVER
WAKING UP ALONE IN A COLD CATHEDRAL
LIGHT LIKE PERFUME FROM HER SOUL SO CLEAN
SHE HELD MY HAND WHILE CROSSING THE STREET
CROWN OF BALLOONS AND A CLUMSY MOUTH
SHE REALLY KNOCKED ME OUT

ITS BEEN HARD, AND ITS BEEN DARK
BUT IT’S ALMOST AFTER MOON; THE SUN’S COMING SOON

I CAN’T SEE OUTSIDE MY WINDOW WITHOUT A FLASH LIGHT
STUMBLIN’ WITH MY GROCERIES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
WRITING POETRY I CAN’T READ
I’M DRINKING CHAMPAGNE CAUSE I CAN’T FIND COFFEE
THE SUN WENT DOWN WITH THE NOTE SHE LEFT
SAYING I COULD FIND HER AT THIS ADDRESS
IF I FINALLY DECIDED TO GIVE UP THE FIGHT
OF LIVING IN THE DARK AND CALLING IT THE LIGHT

IT’S BEEN HARD, AND IT’S BEEN DARK
BUT IT’S ALMOST AFTER MOON; THE SUN’S COMING SOON

I’M SITTING IN THE BACKSEAT OF A BLACK LIMOUSINE
THE DRIVER PROBABLY HAS A FACE BUT I CAN’T SEE
HE’S TALKING A LOT OF NOISE BUT HASN’T SAID A THING
AND I THINK WE’RE GOING SOMEWHERE BUT I CAN’T BE SURE
CAUSE AT THIS POINT THE WORLDS BECOME A SHAPELESS BLUR
SO I KICK THE SUNROOF OPEN AND THE DRIVER STARTS TO SHOUT
I BREATHE WITH MY LUNGS AND HOWL IT ALL OUT

IT’S BEEN HARD, AND IT’S BEEN DARK
BUT IT’S ALMOST AFTER MOON, ALMOST AFTER MOON
ALMOST AFTER MOON, ALMOST AFTER MOON
AND THE SUN IS COMING SOON
Track Name: Otis Sang
I WAS BIGGER THAN I’LL EVER BE, IN MY MIND I WAS A KING
I TOUCHED HER IN TIME WITH THE TRUMPETS SWING
TAT TAT TRICKLIN’ DOWN WENT THE RAIN
WHEN OTIS SANG
A BLURRY BLUE LIGHT LIT THE PARKING LOT
WHERE I DROPPED MY DISGUISE KNOWING I WAS CAUGHT
AND I FOUND LOVE EXPECTING PAIN
WHEN OTIS SANG
THEN SHE STOOD TO GO, LEAVING TEARS ON MY CHEST
BUT I REACHED FOR HER AND TRIED A LITTLE TENDERNESS
SHE LAYED BACK DOWN AND STAYED
WHEN OTIS SANG
