Track Name: Deep In My Heart
Deep in my heart
I do believe
There's a stronger man inside of me

And there be trials and tribulations
Bring you to your feet
Bring you to redemption or to your knees

And all a good boy can do is pray each and every morning
That the good lord above will give a little warning
When the storm clouds are forming
And the rain is on the rise
Let us turn up our eyes
to the spirit in the sky

Cause deep in my heart
I do believe
Deep in my heart I do believe
deep in my heart I do believe
there's a stronger man inside of me
Track Name: Snow Bank
Snowbank. Watch the snowbank.
Might as well be solid stone
Thank the lord or whoever you
Think is getting you down the road

Takes a second, maybe less
To lose control, be totally helpless

Veer the wheel lord
Steer me away
I got more life to live, lord
Steer me away
From the snowbank

Slow my love
We're in no rush, my love
We'll be there in seconds flat

Takes a lifetime, maybe more
To realize the ones you're living for

Veer the wheel lord
Steer me away
Veer the wheel lord
Steer me away
Veer the wheel lord
Steer me away
Track Name: Only Right Turns
I need a way
With only right turns
I need a church that only burns

I have a wife
I need a groom
I need the world to end real soon

And they come
And they ask me
What have I done
What exactly
And I hum
The same tune
The same one I always do

Like a wedding band
On the hand of a corpse
I will surely stay the course

But I need a way
With only right turns
I need a church that only burns

And they come
And they ask me
What have I done
What exactly
And I hum
The same tune
The same one I always do
I always do
I always do
I always do
Track Name: Belly of the Beast
These pipes are clogged with gold
How much is made for every livelihood that gets sold?
And does it ever truly trickle down
Or fall like confetti straight from parade to the ground

Here in the belly of the beast
We have the least to gain from the falling money rain
In the belly of the beast

These streets are steeped in haut couture
The stench of wealth spreads like the stench of ripe manure
And it's so easy to get used to the smell
And forget all of those who are living in a living hell

Here in the belly of the beast
We can't forget the reasons we are all prisoners here
In the belly of the beast

And if we sit down where we stand
And peacefully demand
That the beast sit down too
It's the least we could do

We made the nuts and bolts
Now all that we manufacture is the revolts
Until our intelligence is heard
The will is the way and the way is in every word

Here in the belly of the beast
We have the will of David and Goliath in our grip
In the belly of the beast

And if we sit down where we stand
And peacefully demand
That the beast sit down too
it's the least it could do
It's the least we could do
In the belly of the beast
the belly of the beast
the belly of the beast
the belly of the beast
Track Name: A Lie
A lie isn't a lie if the truth is never told

I have a secret I want to keep until I'm married
Long after my last born has been born
Long after he's married

A lie isn't a lie if the truth is never told

A lie, a lie, a lie
A lie, a lie, a lie

I've a stack of letters hind the bed
Better left unopened
I have filled my life with such regret
Better left unspoken

A lie isn't a lie if the truth is never told

A lie, a lie, a lie
A lie, a lie, a lie
Track Name: Wind Blows Cold
You're my best imaginary friend
You don't exist outside my head
And the conversations that we have
Though not quite real, they aren't bad
They make me feel less sad and alone
Like a telephone with someone else on the other end

In my dreams we walk the pier
I hold your hand, you pull me near
I kiss the flesh behind your ear
And it's so sincere
And I have no fear
That you'll disappear
Cause you were never here
And this had to come
Even pretend things have an end

And the wind blows cold
On the soulless soul
And my heart's on fire
And I cannot breathe

You're my best imaginary or real friend
You don't exist outside my head
And the conversations that we have
Though not quite real, they aren't bad
They make me feel less sad and alone
Like a telephone...

And the wind blows cold
On the soulless soul
And my heart's on fire
And I cannot breathe

And the lighthouse shines down
On this soulless town
And my heart's on fire
And I cannot breathe

And I cannot hear
And I cannot breathe
And I cannot sing
Track Name: Grand Marais
Oh, Grand Marais
Such a lovely town and lovely name
Waters crashing blue and white
Me and my boy by my side

We'd a falling out
Can't recall quite why or what about
Waters crashing on grey rock
Me and my boy scarcely talk

And we've a love as great as a great lake
And we've a pain as sore as the north shore

Oh, Grand Marais
What a way to freeze the day away
Waters crashing cold and hard
Neath an endless sea of stars

And we've a love as great as a great lake
And we've a pain as sore as the north shore

Oh, Grand Marais
Track Name: Honey
Honey, could you fix me a drink
I am standing on the brink
Of nothing
And your smile is the only thing worthwhile

Do you remember that Oprah episode
All of those families that lost their homes in Louisiana
How you said you couldn't imagine
Losing your whole life in the blink of an eye

Honey, could you please get the door
There was a notice, we've a week
Maybe more.
If we just stay, what are they gonna do?
Haul us away?

You have a sister in Wisconsin
I'm sure she gets lonely now that the children have grown
I have a brother, but Owen's got his own problems
Though I'm sure he'd love to help

Honey, will you come with me
As we say goodbye to our lovely neighbors
I won't be clearing the driveway
They'll have to find someone else by November
Track Name: Keep Me Away From the Mirror
Keep me away from the mirror
And everything else fragile
At least until I'm acting more like a sober, adult person

I'm breaking every effort
I've made to make myself better
Now I'm resigned to never be that kind of man
Noone can

Threw my phone out the window
Heard the faceplate shatter
Scattering names over the plains by the wind
And back again

I broke my HDTV
With a plunger and most of my body
Took my foot out of my mouth and put it to work
I went bizzerk

And what would my family
My family have to say
If they were to see me
See me acting this way
They'd say he's ok

Just keep him away from the mirror
And everything else fragile
If you can keep him from himself, that's probably best
Track Name: Out in Eagan
Out in Eagan courting Armageddon
I wore my blackest suit
I did my hair all cute

Some duckfluff haircut come and talk to me
Kindly ask my price
I blink, I bat my eyes

But I can't even sell my soul
The devil don't want it no
And there's nothing sadder than a whore
Who can't even sell himself

All these cars seem to drive themselves
To and from their lives
And I'm, I'm just the same
I stay in my lane
Nowhere to go, nothing to gain

Cause I can't even sell my soul
The devil don't want it no
And there's nothing sadder than a whore
Who can't even sell himself
