Track Name: Tennessee
I left my home back in the heartland
A place I loved, a place I knew
For a land of milk and honey
A place they said "your dreams will come true."

I bid farewell to broken promises
I bid farewell to the bitter cold
For a land of opportunity
So here I stand in Tennessee

I work all day and do my dreaming
And at night I prove my worth
The bands all play their hits on Broadway
But I miss the songs from 23rd

I bid farewell to friends and family
I bid farewell but they'll be fine
No one said that this would be easy
So here I sit in Tennessee

I still see them every Christmas
The days are short, but we make the time
Sometimes it feels an ocean's between us
But I know it's only Kentucky's state lines

I bid farewell to what I thought I knew
I bid farewell but I'm alright
I can see them, some nights I still can't sleep
So here I lay, here I lay, in Tennessee
Track Name: Ball and Chain
There’s a penny in my hand, it reads “In God we trust”
Don’t you find it curious
I ain’t trusting in nobody
But these dollar signs and monies through the day

There’s an idea up my sleeve, it’s taking time to plan
Never could quite understand
Why I thought this would be easy,
But these plans seem to elude me as I age

And I’m feeling old
I’m feeling old
Yeah I know I’ve got my means,
I just need for it to reach its end

There’s a road I’m driving down, it goes by 65
I’ve watched my life flash ‘fore my eyes
But it gets me where I’m going
At least I’m praying and I’m hoping anyway

There’s a girl that’s in my house, they call her ball and chain
I never could see her the same
All she wants is me to love her
But I still put things above her every day

And she’s feeling cold
She’s feeling cold
Yeah she knows I’ve got my means
She just wishes it would reach its end

But I’m feeling old
I’m feeling old
Yeah I know I’ve got my means,
I just need for it to reach its end

Are you feeling cold?
Are you feeling bold?
Yeah we’ve all got our means
We just wish that they would reach their ends

But I’m feeling old
I’m feeling old
Yeah I know I’ve got my means,
I just need for it to reach its end

Yeah I know I’ve got my means
I just need for it to reach its end…
Track Name: Repentance
I never asked for much, just a little bit of peace
It seems I’ve picked up something else
Be careful what you wish for, that’s what they always say
Feels like you're dealing unjust trades

Is something wrong?
It's like I’m always running back against the grain
Oh what have I done?
I’m crying out and all my questions still remain

Was my repentance too late?
Or my transgressions too great?
Cause it seems to me the more that you give
The more you tend to take away.

Is there a balance you always seem to strike?
To which side tips the scales this time?
Is there an answer? Please lend your ear
Will you take my peace just to disappear?

Is something wrong?
Feels like I’m always running back against the grain
Oh what have I done?
I’m crying out and all my questions still remain

Was my repentance too late?
Or my transgressions too great?
Cause it seems to me the more that you give
The more you tend to take away
Track Name: All the Time
How can I find the words to say
When my mouth and my mind always get in the way
When I wake in the morning you're there next to me
And I'm restless and turning, yet you sleep in peace

And I'll spend all day
Wishing there with you I'd lay
Even if you couldn't hear me, it's fine
I swear I love you all the time

How can I say these words to you?
When my mouth and my heart get so out of tune
And we'll go to bed angry, you'll lay next to me
I'm wrestling and turning, yet you sleep in peace

And I'll spend all night
Wishing I could make this right
Even when my actions don't show the signs
I swear I love you all the time

How do you find the words you do
When your mouth, mind, and heart still are troubling you
And I'll wake in the morning, no you're not asleep
I'm wrestling and turning, yet you're forgiving me

And I'll never find
Anyone else to call mine
Even if forever's not enough time
I swear I'll love you all my life
Track Name: Gunslinger
He's got it all figured
Feels like he's standing on a cloud
Above the thunder and the rain
The sky's the limit is his claim

His mind like stars within the night
The moon can't feed his appetite
Cause he won't stop until he sees
Their plans eclipsed by his glory

Oh boy is this everything you ever wanted?
Oh boy is this everything you dreamed?
Oh boy you can lie and cheat til you're exhausted
But I know all about your schemes

He sees it all in his mind
Oh it's a life we'd call sublime
He locks the gates up to his house
Loves their attention but he'd rather leave them out
