Track Name: Ghosts and Killers
It was late last night
When a spark from the kitchen caught to the curtains
The siren lights
They came to surprise you when you arrived

And you could have stayed home
With all the paperweights of your past
You could have stayed home with all the paperweights of your past
You could have stayed home with all the ghosts and killers

And the old plate glass
It shattered like the ice in the middle of December
You saw it last
When the leaves were fiery red just like September
And you could have stayed home…

But you don’t fight it
You don’t fight it
Cause you’ll find that
All is better when all that’s bitter burns to embers

Well it was late, late, late
When you decided you were never going home
Cause there was too much to fake, fake, fake
All the things you lost but they were never gone
And you could have stayed home…
With all the bills and papers
Track Name: Concrete Beatdown
Is it too late to call it?
You’re lost and gone and falling
Your feet don’t seem to lead you in the right places anymore
You thought you’d never be here
You had it all planned out well
And now you’re stuck with too much weight
It’s too much…

And fire, hot fire, burns you down
It shakes and breaks and takes the town
And all the lies that tie you down
We’ll break them.

It’s a concrete beat down
You make a little but you take a lot of heat
You’re not yourself lately
Somebody else they’re saying
who is that anyway
well I know…

If you’re putting on a show everywhere you go
And the lies you tell don’t seem to make you
And if you’re in a tight spot
Where everything seems dead
Well I’ve been there and we will break out
Track Name: Feed
I ain’t got no fascination I wonder what time we’re closing tonight
The big man’s got a killer agenda
Feed the bottom line to rise to the top
Cash the cards cash the checks watch the stock market
And buy a house with some green green grass but
I ain’t got no fascination so I wonder what time we’re closing tonight

Cause last call is calling my name out
All other options they fade out
Last call is calling my name out
All other options they fade out

Dim the lights for the lovely diners
Dressing up in their black and white
The rich men make terrible whiners
They two time us nickel and dime us
But I ain’t got no fascination so I wonder what time we’re closing tonight

Feed the bottom, feed the bottom line
Track Name: Devil's in the Details
Riding through the valley, tonight I’ll turn my car into a bed
And when I see sunshine I hope it lifts the fog right off my head
Cause the devils in the details
The devils in the details in your head
And the thoughts that create the world around you
The things you love and the things you dread.

Oo Ah when things get rough
If I give up will you call my bluff will you call it?

And if dust and rust come and cover my skin
And I just let it settle in will you shake me up?
Will you shake shake shake me?
Cause I’d do the same for all my kin
Say my what a lovely mess your in
But if you made it you can make it out
Track Name: Roll with the Punches
Got my paycheck Friday evening
After work, going home
I see a man in traffic laughing and crying at the same time
Cause today was the last day of his old ways

I’m gonna roll with the punches til it gets old
I’m gonna roll with the punches til it gets old
No prison guard can tell me where I can’t go
Gonna roll with the punches til it gets…

Who bought the news and who bought the radio cause
They don’t play good songs no more
And who bought the information that sells so well on the TV stations, Lord
Cause the truth went out the door.
