Track Name: Gems To Stones
Son I've got to go, but I'll be home real soon
I've got a meeting in the scraper across the sea, I'll see you in a couple of moons
See I'm sealin' a deal to get you a steal and buy you some shiny wheels
I'm sure you'll make out fine in our mansion on the hill.

I'll dig deep inside these pockets to find my love for you
I know our time is short but I got some money makin' to do
I'll bring the bread home and you can raise yourself alone
Take note and someday soon you can turn your gems to stones

Let's wreck this beautiful place so we can make a few bucks
Let's take what God has made and we can make it more deluxe
And when the seas get sick and the air is thick and our money can't make sense
We'll just consider this an unavoidable expense

We'll dig deep inside these pockets to fix this dreadful mess
Naive to the fact that a little is more and more is inevitably less
We'll bring the green home and you can raise yourself alone
Take note and someday soon you can turn your gems to stones

We'd sell our souls for a little bit of gold and a diamond ring
We'll join the masses just to have the latest thing
We wont be happy until everything is gone
Cause if it doesn't shine then it isn't mine and it doesn't belong

Let's turn our gems to stones, let's turn our gems to stones
Let's turn our gems to stone, turn our gems to stones
Let's turn our gems to stones.
Track Name: Love's Like Holding Guns
What part of give a little don’t you get, it’s not a riddle
Hearts get hard when they’re scarred in the middle
Cause I give and I bend, make emotional investments
I haven’t seen a dividend

What have we become?
I think we've been worn thin, we've been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We'll only bleed again

Late nights, fierce fights ravage us like termites
Eating through foundations of relations that were tight
Human nature is a beast , no laws no leash
Leaving nothing but the rubble at our feet.

What have we become?
I think we've been worn thin, we've been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We'll only bleed again

I fed your sickness, you fed mine
But we were young and we were blind
To what this thing called love would do
You damaged me, I damaged you
And now that we have reached the end
Is nothing left to save my friend?
It’s darkest right before the dawn
It’s cold but I’m still holding on
Cause I’m convinced this love is real
It’s in my bones like melted steel
I feel it when we disconnect
I feel it when we resurrect
It shoves us down, it pulls us back
Relentless, unswayed maniacs
This may be insanity
But real love never leaves


What have we become?
I think we've been worn thin, we've been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We'll only bleed again
What have we become?
I think we've been worn thin, we've been worn thin
Love’s like holding guns
We'll make it through again
Track Name: Solo Crazy
You're right and I'm wrong
You break bread, baby I can only ever break the law
And that hole in the wall
Has got me feelin' like a loose cannon ball

I wanna know, how is the weather up there
I wouldn't know cause these landmines have got me frozen in fear
And I'm out there for all the world to see
You sit back in the comfort of the night like it's luxury

I'm the dynamite and you ignite me baby
A dangerous experiment in chemistry
Always leave me feelin' like I'm solo crazy
Like your the stolen honey of a killer bee

The way you operate it blows me
I'm pickin' up my pieces every day
Just when I'm on the straight and narrow again
You strike the match, I brace myself for the pain
I hold resentment and you the key
Truth is you're broken but you never bleed
Yeah, I'm haphazard but you get what you see
So get it over with and detonate me, yeah

I'm the dynamite and you ignite me baby
A dangerous experiment in chemistry
Always leave me feelin' like I'm solo crazy
Like your the stolen honey of a killer bee

I'm the dynamite and you ignite me baby
A dangerous experiment in chemistry
Always leave me feelin' like I'm solo crazy
Like your the stolen honey of a killer bee
Track Name: Sink
Oh no, I’m wasting away
I’m only twenty-nine and I’m feeling grey
I think I’m gonna just walk right past the shore
Until my feet give way, until I feel no more

I wanna sink right to the ground
And disappear from this old town
I never thought I’d be right here, right now
I wanna sink right to the ground
And disappear from this old town
I never thought I’d be right here, right now

I can’t seem to pick up the pieces just as fast as they fall
I can’t shake this shadow, I can’t shake it at all
This cloud is black as ink and I’m soaked on through
With thoughts of everything, everything I thought I knew

I wanna sink right to the ground
Disappear from this old town.
I never thought I’d be right here, right now
I wanna sink right to the ground
And disappear from this old town
I never thought I’d be right here, right now

I wanna sink right to the ground
Disappear from this old town.
I never thought I’d be right here, right now
I wanna sink right to the ground
And disappear from this old town
I never thought I’d be right here, right now
