Track Name: Three Simple Chords
It's the same song
You've heard a thousand times before
Some broken heart melody
and three simple chords

Some lonely eyed loser
Feet dragging on the floor
Finds himself a cheap guitar
And finds three simple chords

Not made for the army
Won't fight in any war
Fighting for something else
With just three simple chords

Says he's gonna run away
Can't take it anymore
We're all running from something
To these three simple chords

I'm feeling the minor highs
I'm such a major whore
You've got me feeing diminished
With just three simple chords
So I think I'm gonna run away
I can't take it any more
We got so much more complicated
Than three simple chords

I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in your lord
But I believe in a lot of things
And three of them are chords

That's why I'm doing this
Do I need to tell you anymore?
Ok then give me a minute
And give me three simple chords


I'm not saying he won't love you
I'm just saying I could have loved you more
But you'll never mean as much to me
as these three simple chords
Track Name: Love in a Digital Age
Love, could I write you a letter
Love, could I say, this digital age
Gets me cold, I'll put on a sweater
Thanks love, I'm feeling much better
I know lovely you would not love a letter
The cons in the text
in so many letters or less
Where's love? it's anybody's guess

Love, could I sing you a song
A hook on the chorus
three verse hang upon
and you could stop me love
if I start carrying on
if I'm losing the point
and my hymn is getting long

Thats love in the digital age
But I won't type it out
I'll rip out the page
Safe in my pocket
When I'm up on the stage
No love in the chorus
We all might as well say

boom bah bah

In the digital age, Love's just a word
I can't be fooled by your eyes
Or the song of some bird
I'm not pronouncing, my love
There could be any stronger verb
I'm not crazy love
I'm just lost at your curb

That's love in the digital way
Maybe my love she would love another name
But I'm so sorry love
It's what the song said to say
And when my skin hit these strings
This is what they tell me to play

boom bah bah

So ttyl sweet belle
We're talking so small
How you doin'
Love, I'm swell
But if I was broken down
Love, could you even tell

Or will you msg me
omg pls
L after L
Well, oh well

Love, could I scream out my lungs
Sing it so loud
Love I won't be unsung
You can ask me love
I'll just say "because"
If I get too close love this is what my heart does
It goes

boom bah bah
Track Name: John the Baptist
Keep me on the table
Keep me on the table
'til you need me around

She's been walking tall, telling fables
dancing so sweet, sweet little angel
lower than down, low like the sound
when a head hits the ground
around these parts they call me menace
so sister please, please allow me pay my penance
forgive all my sins and I'll do 'em again
so you can go and

Keep me on the table
Keep me on the table
'til you need me around

Keep me on the table
Keep me on the table
'til you need me around

I had this dream, dreaming' in the stables
served fine wine, we dine on prison tables
and wait for the call to walk down the hall
and then enter that ball
that's all and then I wake up
c'mon be a good girl, c'mon put on your make up
give 'em a show but don't let 'em know
now off you go and

Keep me on the table
Keep me on the table
'til you need me around

Keep me on the table
Keep me on the table
'til you need me around

You are all I need
You are all I need
You are all I need

She's speaking soft, can you hear her?
She's speaking soft, can you hear her?
She's speaking soft, like a whisper
I know she speaks so soft, can you hear her?
Track Name: Oath of the Horatii
Oath of the Horatii

I am a soldier, a brother, father, son, husband, and man
I was the last of the least left, leaving death in my hands
My head, my heart, my life, my love
I could take a deep breath and breathe death out my lungs
But war songs sung by your young and much more gentler men
Make believe like a war could spill out of their pens
Like when I cornered the first one, before the last of his light
and with a twist of my blade, I wished him goodnight

To my people, I'm pleading, I gave you each and for all
My youth, my truth, my rise, my fall
My blood is yours, just like every stain
on each and every brick, and each and every blade
Like the remains of my brothers, we all end the same
We came from different houses, we had different last names
but that's oath we gave so I hope I served you well
when I stared in his eyes and sent the second to hell

We fight to the beat of your marching drum
We fight in the streets to your father's anthem

To my sister, I miss her but she could not hear the call
When Soldiers we fight, then soldiers will fall
My guilt, her love, my kill, her pain
But my word's my bond or they all die in vain
All the shame and the blame I can not hide away
of the oath we gave to our last dying day, it would say
Death to those who dare curse or defame
My land, like my sister and the third man's head I claimed that day

We fight to the beat of your marching drum
We fight in the streets to your father's anthem
Track Name: Masters of War
Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks.

You that never done nothin'
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it's your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly.

Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain.

You fasten all the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you set back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion'
As young people's blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud.

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins.

Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul.

And I hope that you die
And your death'll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand over your grave
'Til I'm sure that you're dead.
Track Name: The Astronomer
Vanilla sky dies, come crush violet blue
and a collection of stars I named after you.
You're shining so bright, you know it's true.
I can't chart them all, even if I do
I'd prefer the dots of your skin to that old southern cross
but now I stare into nothing and never get lost.
I learn every line in the sky but there's a cost.
The best love stories, all the stars are crossed.
So sing sweet Juilet, sing me a tune.
I'll name you the sun, I'll be the moon
like I could spin around something else
and still revolve around you.
Wait for another turn.
Come on, crush violet blue.

Some tricky little stars, ever long and done.
Their light that led you no where.
The nights that put you on.
And left you asking "Am I right? Or am I wrong?
Or is it get while the gettings good
and then get gone?"
Go out the dead stars you watch when they break
collapse into black and lay all to waste.
Singing, "Whiskey's not so bad,
once you get past the taste"
You're right, whiskey's not so bad
once you get past the taste
So I'll be working all night
until I can't hold my pen
It's just sundown, sunrise
I start over again
Another one starts
Another one ends
You're breaking so many hearts
but you're making so many friends
