Track Name: Loose Ends
Falling into bushes
song drunk on wine
tomorrow we're driving
and we're just losing time
Too tired for your
old ferris wheel
your round and round it drives me right
into the ground

CHORUS:
I wanna love you like a fire loves a flame
like I don't even know your name
I wanna love you til I can't even stand
to breathe the air you breathe
I'd do better just to lay off the sauce
I bought it and I fought it but who's the boss
You always knew just, how to ruin me
How to ruin me

If the future could've been seen
never fall in love with a queen
Oh baby why'd you have to be so
mean
To me you were something else but
you ain't no royalty
no longer on my bended knee will I serve fool to your
bullshit and lies

CHORUS

I don't miss smoking
it's an ugly vice
instead of cigarettes
you should've rolled the dice
But time moves fast
none left to waste
So I'll just keep rolling down my own
lost highway

CHORUS

Never was just a moment
never was just one lie
Oh baby you didn't even stick around to try
You got your stories straight
then you changed the rules
If there's a truth to tell it's you
who ruined you

CHORUS
Track Name: Holy Man
I'm not a holy man.

Never make it to the promised land. I'm not the nicest guy,
sure as shit I'll make you cry. I won't throw the first stone,
but I'll pick up the second and drive it home.

Together we built, a tower of Babel, above the jerks, the whores, and rabble. When I saw you teetering on the edge well baby here's my pledge. I'll reach out and I'll give you a shove, and I'll watch you fall from up above. Like road runner watches Wiley hit the ground, first the dust, then the sound.

I'm not a holy man, never going to make the promised land. I won't throw the first stone, but I'll pick up the second and I'll drive it home.

After a minute, I'll walk to the edge, and baby here's my revenge
I'll meet you at the gates of hell
Saying devil I have a story to tell.
Devil said son don't you see she has a seat here right next to me
She introduced the snake and the Apple
She holds the lease on your Tower of Babel
She told Lot that she needed salt
I still don't know what that's about
She gave Moses the wrong directions
Out of spite so I reckon.
From her garden so carefully grown
Jesus wore her crown of thorns.
The devil said son I've known her longer than you
She cut the deal at the crossroads too.

I'm not the nicest guy, sure as shit im gonna make you cry.

Devil said son, you got to know
It's time you let this go.
She played you like a banjolele
This one here she is no lady.
Go live the life, she never wanted
To be the one to be undaunted.

I won't throw the first stone, but I'll pick up the second and I'll drive it home. I'm not a holy man, never going to make the promised land.
