Already Gone 03:12
I can't sleep It smells different here I put on a brave face But I don't like changes You can't be weak When you have everything you need You can't just keep Everyone you love in little knick-knack boxes on the wall I'm longing for a place that has already been And I am struggling to reach Oh was that the highest peak Take me back where I belong Take me back where I belong I am longing for a place that is already gone I can't run It's too heavy now I've gotten in a foothold But my knees are scraping You can't be weak You have everything you need You can't just keep Everyone you love in little knick-knack boxes on the wall I'm longing for a place that has already been And I am struggling to reach Oh was that the highest peak Take me back where I belong Take me back where I belong I am longing for a place that is already gone

Holy Man 03:09
Who is the holy man and what does he believe? That we must cover up our bodies We must show humility I believe my body is beautiful and it belongs to me What makes a holy man? What does he decree? There is an order to this place and he's atop the hierarchy I believe there's no one above me and no one underneath But I'm a sinner I'm a whore I'm rotten to the core and you're the holy man It's to you that He confides You have god on your side And you're the holy man Yeah you're the holy man I hear the holy man He's calling for our souls That we must kneel, beg forgiveness like it's something that we owe I believe our only stipulation is the kindness that we show But I'm a sinner I'm a whore I'm rotten to the core and you're the Holy Man It's to you that He confides You have god on your side And you're the Holy Man Yeah you're the holy man

San Antonio 03:27
Police cordon off the street One car at each end of the block Hear the siren of the SWAT team It's a clear day in San Antonio Your friends are watching it on Facebook On a live-stream Under the post where you said 'Goodbye' And your kids They're in school now Three little girls pulled out their classes The chief of the the police Approaches the microphones Of the journalists who have come to report the story He said you called before you shot her Before you turned it on yourself And they asked What was weapon that you used It was a handgun It's a clear day in San Antonio

Blood 03:40
I see the blood spill if I spill mine Will I feel better will I feel just fine? Oh blood blood blood blood blood It flows through our veins How can something that makes us the same Be used as something to divide You see the blood spill if you spill mine Will you feel better, will you feel just fine? Oh blood blood blood blood blood It flows through our veins How can something that makes us the same Be used as something to divide They all fall down in to the river, in to the river Why would you harden their hearts? I see the blood spill if I spill mine Will I feel better will I feel just fine Oh blood blood blood blood blood It flows through our veins How can something that makes us the same Be used as something to divide

Here 04:15
I woke up this morning in my baby's arms and I felt safe from the weight of the world Lying in the glow of pure understanding That whispers the words we already know This is real and this is good Everything is where it should I am where I should be Here As I lay down to sleep in some some faraway town I still feel the warmth of your arms Love is longer than the ride It's always with me here inside My heart is where you'll be Here This is the whole, these are the parts This is the end, this is the start Here

No 03:08
I wanted it to be over but that seemed kind of cruel So I just held my breath and I waited for you To take what you wanted To take what you came to With my thoughts I am walking I see you on my way You're watching me, you come over Does that mean I should stay? And give you attention or at least a kiss goodbye I'm not asking for trouble I'm not asking for trouble baby yeah I don't know why it feels so hard to say When I bring you your coffee you hold to onto my arm And you ask for my number doesn't do any harm And you want my attention or maybe a kiss goodbye I'm not asking for trouble I'm not asking for trouble baby yeah I don't know why it feels so hard to say Say no I don't know why it feels so hard to say no I run calculations in my head every day The other sides of equations You can't know what they weigh I'm not asking for trouble I'm not asking for trouble baby yeah I don't know why it feels so hard to say Now I'm not asking for trouble I'm not asking for trouble baby yeah I don't know why it feels so hard to say no Say no
