Track Name: Out and About
Do you believe what you sing?

Do you ever worry when you’re out and about,

that the world

might end

and you won’t know where to go?
Track Name: Worker Bee
Lonely little worker bee

driving back from twin cities

I know you wish you had more friends

and gave more of yourself to them.

Who will you tell them you love

when you’re dying

and they ask about your stuff?



Please don’t let my neck get tight,

please don’t let my

knuckles turn white.



Drunk and playing for money

lost your voice trying to sing

I know you wish you had reason

to sit sober and quiet at home

Who is missing your touch

when you’re traveling,

looking for love?



Pleas don’t let me be lonely at night,

please don’t let him have

someone on the side.
Track Name: Concern and a Warning
I go out with a concern and a warning

for my brothers and my sisters

the children of Adam,

I am going out, with

a concern for you.



I hope when the night is over,

I’ll be sober, and you’ll be coming over.



I go out with a concern and a warning

for my brothers and my sisters

the children of David,

I am going out, with

a warning from you.



I hope when the night is over,

I’ll be sober, and you’ll be coming over.
Track Name: Come Down
Somebody watched me play,

asked, “what are you high on?”

I ignored what they said

and saw what was on high



Come Down

Come Down

Come Down





Somebody watched me dance,

asked, “what spirits have you drunk?”

I ignored what they said

and saw the Holy Spirit



Come Down

Come Down

Come Down

Come Down
Track Name: Folded Hands
Some men leave a woman,

for women.

but women want to be

a woman.

Those men don’t understand…



We’ll keep you in our folded hands.



Some girls leave a home

for a house.

But houses want to be

a home.

Those girls don’t understand…



We’ll keep you in our folded hands.
Track Name: Bad Seed
You dance on tables

and I dance on the floor.

you sneak in windows

and I go through the door.

you trust in who knows

and I trust in the Lord.

You are a bad seed

and I’m even worse,

I’m even worse…



Have mercy on her,

I know you do that

cuz I felt it before

I felt it before



You got a new nose

and I got a new heart.

Your’s lasts a lifetime

and mine forever.

You mistrust doctrine

and I the doctors.

you are a bad seed,

and I’m even worse,

I’m even worse…



Have mercy on her,

I know you do that

cuz I felt it before

I felt it before
Track Name: A Hatred
Father, I’ve got a hatred

Father, I’ve got unfaithful lips,

Father, I’m flattered by lust in a stare

Father, I’m easily ensnared.



I don’t do what I want.



Father, I’ve got a hatred

Father, I’ve got lying lips

Father, I’ve taken too much more than once

Father, It’s you that I want



I don’t do what I want.
Track Name: A Word
A word keeps my skin on and I don’t know why

everybody tries to keep their’s on with cream.

I’ll tell you being youth ain’t all that good,

nobody listens to a word I say.

I can’t wait for a little bit of gray



I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I

aye, aye, aye , aye, aye, aye, aye



A word keeps the sun up and I don’t know why

I get burned every time it touches me.

I tell you being burned ain’t all that good,

it keeps me inside when the clouds aren’t out.

I can’t wait for a little bit of gray



I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I

aye, aye, aye , aye, aye, aye, aye



A word keeps me honest and I don’t know why

everybody tries to cover up their lies.

I tell you black and white just don’t feel right,

rather know the one and be by his side.

I can’t wait for a little bit of gray



I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I

aye, aye, aye , aye, aye, aye, aye

and worse at the same time.

It’ll make us feel better,

and worse at the same time.



mmmmmm

It’ll make us feel better,

and worse at the same time.

Separates our labor

from our birth.

All those silly things are

I don’t think…you’ve got

any wings



We’ll find out… when we

Fly into the sky
Track Name: Dollar Signs
I didn’t build the garage

where the kids made their money.

I didn’t build the garage where the money

was made.

I just paid the man, for a high place

I just paid the man, for a high place



I’ll tell you how to make a ring

out of a dollar bill.

Put it on the counter,

fold it in a circle,

tie it in a noose.



I didn’t build the building where

there was no living thing.

He was the one who choked art and dignity

for the economy.

I just paid the man for a high place,

I just paid the man for high place.



I’ll tell you how to make a ring

out of a dollar bill.

Put it on the counter,

fold it in a circle,

tie it in a noose.
Track Name: Say It
When he believe he believes what you say,

when you say what you mean, I believe what he says

when he says that you love me, say that you love me

say that you love me



When you came,

I broke in to/two

a piece/peace of you.



When we left,

I turned to see/sea

you wave at me.
Track Name: Trilogy
Three times

I heard it ring,

then I saw you cross the street.

I closed in on my front door,

and then I heard you knocking

and when I did not answer,

you came in

through the window.



I was so scared I could not breathe,

it was so that,

I could not speak…



Your shadow,

on the wall

confirmed my suspicions.

I hid in the oven

and shivered in the cold

you made rice on the stove

and then went home.



I was so scared I could not breathe,

it was so that,

I could not speak…

It was so bad,

I could not speak.
Track Name: Muddy, Bloody
Muddy water, I’m trying to swim through,

muddy water.

I forgot to take my shoes off,

they’re weighing me down, they’re weighing me down

Water’s flooding my mouth, til I say…

What’s that, ah yes a solid rock

What’s that, ah yes a solid rock

Yes, I’m standing on this solid rock

watching all the waters cry over me

well they won’t have me, no,

they won’t have me.



Break the surface take a breath of life

oh Glory, glory, glory.



Bloody water, is pouring from his side,

bloody water.

I forgot that he’s my savior last night.

It’s weighing this down, it’s weighing this down,

Tears will flood our eyes,

til I say,

Who’s that, ah yes, it’s Jesus Christ.

Who’s that, ah yes, it’s Jesus Christ.

Yes, I ‘m standing on this solid rock

watching all the world cry over me.

We’ll they won’t have me, no

they won’t have me.



Break the surface take a breath of life

oh Glory, glory, glory.
