Ready Or Not 02:58
Everything is so damn fragile Every goddam thing we’ve got Here right now, lost in a minute Whether you’re ready or whether you’re not Whether you’re ready or not Just when you thought you got it all dialed in Every needle tickling the red In a second it’ll all unravel Levels getting out of hand The black wind of disarray Blows you back to the top again You can shake your fist at heaven Bang away -- no one’s there You can scream at the top of your lungs But darkness crushes everyone You can call that wicked Not unfair
Shaylee 02:31
Shaylee, cry if you wanna We all need a place to lean Shaylee, cry if you wanna Feeling the ache don’t make you weak You are always safe with me Here’s a hand, baby Watch your step I can’t slow you down But I can offer you a little help Don’t be too proud Shaylee, you are your own worst enemy sometimes Try with all your might to let it go No one doubts that steel in your spine Or the tiger in your eye But I know that on another side It’s so hard to keep on trying
I gave her my youth Gained a few pounds and a love deep and true It was something I needed to do I was out of control Out on my own  I’m not the type to complain A man has to live with the choices he’s made Who here among us would not live alone If not for stone loneliness? Were it not for stone loneliness?  I go to sleep when I’m tired Doing whatever, whenever I like And that’s fine for a while But it’s getting old  Being the only one home
Motorway 03:31
Many nights I laid awake  Wondering what should i do Till I learned I could not go on Putting people up Higher than where I was putting you I know I’m not the only one who’s getting frayed I know you still dream about a better place Let’s gas up the car and, to coin a phrase, Get ourselves real gone, baby On the motorway Many gifts you gave to me When I’m pressed, I still think of two: It’s the sunlight through your nightgown And this feeling I can’t fail Trust me darlin’, those are gonna do
