Track Name: Down by the Riverside
Blood is like a rosary
I always keep it close to me
like a flower in my mind
like a boat under the sea

They were down by the riverside
cause there was nowhere else to hide
that's where I found my love
when she'd finally had enough

It's funny how the seasons change
a decade feels like yesterday
when you fall and break your heart
it always leaves a pretty scar

They were down by the riverside
it's burned in the back of my mind
like a halo on my head
and I wouldn't take it off instead

They were down by the riverside
cause there was nowhere else to hide
and that's where I found myself
when there was nobody else
Track Name: Let Me By
Tell lady luck to sit in my lap
cause once you step up ain't no stepping back
I see purple hills and sunshine
in my dreams in my dreams when I sleep in the night

Come around come around to my home town
ain't been the same since it burned to the ground
but I know we can still have a good time
with a song and a bottle of some cheap wine

I said oh so be good to me
when I'm walking through your city
I said oh cause I might lose my mind
give up all my money and steal back all my time

Meet again meet again in the bread lines
or under the clouds and the bright lights
and I bet you that you could sing sweeter
and all that you need is a teacher

I said oh so be good to me
when I'm walking through your city
I said oh cause I might lose my mind
give up all my money and steal back all my time

Let me by
Track Name: Brighter Days
Cold kisses in the dark
lighting fires and distant sparks
and it feels so strange when it rains
but behind the clouds brighter days

Brighter days

Like a child out on the sea
my heart's with the people who been loving me
and you can't see tomorrow cause it's too far away
So keep the beat close to me and say goodbye to yesterday

Brighter days

Cold kisses in the dark
lighting fires and distant sparks
and it feels so strange when it rains
behind the clouds brighter days
Track Name: Without a Map
After the fall we set sail
through the rain through the hail we passed
and never looked back

Over the hills we stole
cities dropped far down below my feet
my fingers start to bleed

And I don't know where we're supposed to go from here
without a map I don't know where to steer
I took the money and told him watch for traps
but I don't know how he found his way without a map

After our houses burned
the prodigal son finally returned
he finally returned

He's got scars across his back
and the stars in his eyes carry him out of the black
out of the black

And I don't know where we're supposed to go from here
it feels so different after all these years
I gave him money and told him watch for traps
but I don't know how he found his way without a map

The simple life gave your father a heart attack
foot on the gas and not turning back
anyone could tell you that the odds are stacked, yeah

but you shine brighter than the rest when we fade to black
and light up the sky like you struck a match
still don't know how you did it without a map, yeah

Still don't know how you did it without a map
Track Name: Morning Star
Those were the days
staring out a window with nothing to say
miles away and
Nobody knows where it is I'm going when I
hit the road and leave it all behind

when I grow up
yeah when I grow up
when I grow up we're gonna be huge

I still see the days
standing in line with nothing to say
nobody knows what it is I'm thinking with my
dreams in my throat
I can't wait till the day

when I grow up
yeah when I grow up
when I grow up we're gonna be huge

Morning star tell me where I'm going cause we've
come too far to ever go back home
and we grew up
yeah we grew up
we grew up we're finally huge
Track Name: Free to Run
I've been down the road and back and
I already know there's nothing
over the rain, over the rainbow

You say that it'll be
better tomorrow we'll see
I wake up blind in the morn, blind in the morning

It's the foreign blood in my veins
it's the black tinted shades
it's the fields under the sun
is this dog still free to run?

Oh you're always by my side
and the time is right
cause you never do know about tomorrow

It's the foreign blood in my veins
it's the mirrors on the window panes
can you cry your tears under the gun?
is this dog still free to run?

Still free to run
