Track Name: Mother (Revisited)
Dear Mother I know you cried over me
Dear Mother you didn't know what I would be
Dear Mother raising me was the hardest you knew
Dear Mother to your arms I always flew

I pulled your hair, was loved in your arms, My cries were blared, I broke your heart
Im the failure you worked so hard for.

Dear Mother you watched me sleep
Dear Mother My price was so steep
Dear Mother you gave it your all
Dear Mother So sad to watch me fall

So what do you do when your little son can't come through and comes undone
I don't know where your love comes from

I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm Sorry you love me so much
I'm sorry I'm sorry I need a crutch
the worst part is you wouldn't give me up

I love you
I love you
I love you mother
Track Name: Vein Road
Running through the county by a single powerline
Is a highway swallowed by the endless pines
In the Chill of the evening you can watch the taillight pass
blurring the distance sweeping through the autumn grass

The clouds project a harmony as day dies in the west
You can feel the warm earth take its daily rest
Chromaticity of Colour washed into the blue
The sun dies down on a backwoods town born into the new

Vein road
Vein road
Vein road
Vein road

Chasing the the sunset on a high way at dusk
outlying mountains turn to rust
Transients pass light through the town
As I travel down that

Vein road
Vein road
Track Name: These Broken Chords
I feel so much smaller than I once was
Stumble and falter through foolish applause
I get up everyday with no strength to say Im wanted
Just let it go everyone knows their haunted

Where to begin with all my scars
Under my skin like moths in a jar
There was a day when you felt ok
Taking your valium blues
Dont you get so tired for being admired for all you've been through

With So much mind and endless spirit
We punch each other blind so they will hear us
Sedated in bed lying half dead
waiting for the end
Night lingers on and these sorry songs become my only friend

These broken chords can sing a little
These broken chords can hold
These broken chords can sing a little
These broken chords warm the cold
These broken chords can sing a little
These broken chords can hold you
