Track Name: Head Down
Hey mister strong man, help me if you can
Since I found myself I don't know what to do
Hey mister strong man, help me if you can
Since I'm so confused I thought I'd turn to you

Yeah, oh we sat around singing

Head down never had much, I never gave up till the day it was done
On and on and on and on and on, oh singing
Head down, never looked up I never let go till you said it was done
On and on and on and on and on

Hey mister strong man, show me what you got
'Cause I'm trying to make a model for myself
Hey mister strong man show me what I'm not
Since I'm trying to forget the way I felt

Yeah, oh we sat around singing

Head down never had much, I never gave up till the day it was done
On and on and on and on and on, oh singing
Head down, never looked up I never let go till you said it was done
On and on and on and on and on
(repeat chorus)
Track Name: 42
Darling where were you 50 years ago?
Unconceived I believe but I wouldn't know
Darling where does everybody go?

Downtown people stop and stare
I'm on my own and far from home but I don't really care
'Cause what does anybody really know?

You cross the finish line and what do you get?
You find out you're part of a madman's bet
On the freeway cars are passing by
And I pinch myself to see if I'm alive

We're just trying to keep warm
The day your neighbor passed away another child was born
And nobody can tell me why it's so

You cross the finish line and what do you get?
You find out you're made up in someone's head
In the city shops are closing down
And I'm writing songs to prove that I'm around
Track Name: Epic Scars
White blue and red above my bed
Water from the past
And the waves rise up above my eyes
And all of my plans

It's not the way I planned
I guess I'll never really understand
We can shine like shooting stars
But we'll always have our epic scars

Summer days fade in the wake
But not lost anyhow
And I have no regrets if I'm second best
'Cause it doesn't matter now

And it's not the way I planned
I guess I'll never really understand
We can shine like shooting stars
But we'll always have our epic scars

We'll always epic scars
You can see my epic scars
Track Name: Underground
Lay down far away from here
Head down yeah
They told me son you'll win
So I lay down and I'll never try again

Pick me up pick you up
You picked me up when I was down
But you gave me up gave me up
So now I'm underground

Give it all or you gain no ground
So I buried them way down underground
And I framed them up all done up in gold
Head down, yeah

Pick me up pick you up
You picked me up when I was down
But you gave me up gave me up
So now I'm underground

Pick me up pick you up
You picked me up when I was down
But you gave me up gave me up
So now I'm underground
Build me up build me up
You build me up just to break me down
But you gave me up, gave me up
So now I'm underground
Track Name: Stumbling
You say that I oughta go
Down the same old road
You went when you were just a child
but in your eyes I see now smile

Oh lord show me what I should do
I'm stumbling on my way back to you

There once were days when I was strong
And summer nights last so long
Now in my hands I see the steel
Like enemies on battlefields

Oh mama show me how I should live
I'm burning for my soul to give

Now quiet as a little girl
I'll walk across the whole world
And hope nobody notice me
With eyes blinded in reverie

Oh lord, sure don't see the way
I only hope there's not a price to pay, yeah

I'm stumbling on my way back to you
I'm stumbling on my way back to you
I'm stumbling on my way back to you
Track Name: Honey
In my dream I was walking down by a river
With the girl I love
She was shining like a drop of honey in the sunlight
From the sky above

Well I wake up when the sun comes up in the morning
For a day of work
There's people driving in their cars all around me
Rolling on through the dirt

Oh do you love me
I've been so lonely
Since I've been on my own
(Chorus repeats)
