Track Name: Rolling with the Punches
--LYRICS--

Been a long time, been a long time
Wrestled to the dirt now I'm back on my grind
Took a trip to the borderlines and I doused my head in some upstream brine
Saw a man in a two-tone coat, told me everything he liked about the songs I wrote
Took a look and to my surprise he had fire on his tongue and green in his eyes
Oooo, won't let him get the best of me
Oooo, take the money just leave me be oh

Hey! I've been rollin' with the punches X4

Been a long time, been a long time
Look into my eyes tell me what do you find?
I had enough with you missin' deadlines, demon with a dollar's been wasting my time
Take him back to his fiery hole, take him to the cleaners with a sword of brimstone
And tell the rest of your hungry dogs that I've got a new weapon just to rule them all
I need your help like I need blood loss, words are for the weak with an empty cause
Give me what I want or I'll take it for myself

Hey! I've been rollin' with the punches X2

Hey! I've been rollin' with the punches X4
Track Name: Criminals
Fold your hands upon my own and stay a while, just to watch the rain
Here my words as you turn to stone and the voices, start to come again
Ooh, and they want just a little bit
Ooh, and you cry just a little bit
Yeah, and they tempt you a little bit
But those criminals they lie, oh those criminals will take your life

I hear em' knockin' at the window
And those eyes look blood red
I can't remember but I know those criminals they lie, oh those criminals they lie

Violent storms around your head to set the mood, for a tragedy
Closing doors and promises they made to you, but not to me
Ooh, and you want just a little bit
Ooh, and you cry just a little bit
Yeah, and they tempt you a little bit
But those criminals they lie, oh those criminals will take your life

I think I heard them at the back door
They threw something down the hallway
And my god I'm so scared
But those criminals they lie, oh those criminals will take your life

Somebody call 911 X3
Track Name: All I Ever
I've been fighting off some demons for some time
I've been dealing with the cyclones in my mind
But when I'm with you, you help me pass the time
And you're breaking me down, oh you're breaking me down

Ooh X2

I've been flirting with disaster for some time
And I've been keeping close to all my family ties
But when I'm with you, you help me pass the time
And you're breaking me down, oh you're breaking me down

Because time, oh it's on my side
Time old boy, it's on my side
And I'm alright

All I ever wanted X2
All I ever wanted, ever wanted was you

And I swear I'll be there till the end my girl
Knowing if you wait for me, let our futures unfurl
I know they'll be a time when we won't be around, but I won't frown, no I won't frown

All I ever wanted X2
All I ever wanted, ever wanted was you
Track Name: Make Your Move
So what's the situation darlin'? Have you made your mind up?
Cause I've got no time to be sitting all alone for this long
I feel we came right back to where we started, a broken heart and a pre-nup
So now I best be leavin' in my finest attire, I'm already gone
Yeah I'm singin..

La la la la la la la
Make your move or ramble on honey X2

We're at a stalemate sugar oh can't you see, and I'm the knight you need to let free
See all your pawns from before start to make a scene, don't let her be your queen
They tell me if you don't keep your mate in-check they'd bet she'd break my neck
So now I've got you in my corner for a while, I need to hear you reconcile
I need to hear you reconcile
Yeah I'm singin...

La la la la la la la
Make your move or ramble on honey X2

La la la la la la la X2
Track Name: Eats You Up
I've spent all my time, to show you what I'm worth
Girl you're so unkind, you know it's no good
I give you all my love, I give it all to you
It seems you've had enough, so tell you what I'll do
I'll tell you what I'll do

I know it eats you up
Knowin' that I'll be fine
Without you with me till the finish line

It's been years since I've felt like I belonged
But no tears have drowned my face
Now I'm picking up, and moving on
Without your trace
Without your X3

I know it eats you up
Knowin' that I'll be fine
Without you with me till the finish line

I won't forget the times
I won't forget your face
I will remember when I threw you out, and put you in your place
I put you in your place

I know it eats you up X3
Track Name: Soul's Full
Oh what I'd give just for seven more years to figure myself out
Now pressure's busting my buttons, they said be more like your cousins or get out
Emptiness is strange, not like her brother pain, she just reminds you that there's work you need to do
If only I'd arranged my life I'd have attained all the empty promises I gave to you

They haven't stolen my soul, not yet
They haven't stolen my soul
So in this cold lonesome desert I will retain control

I don't need to be, anything you want from me, no no
See I'm a different man, fleeting dreams is who I am, you see
So scream the roof off if you please you'll never bring me to my knees
I swear, your words aren't wanted here
And if it helps I'll leave the room, I'll see you in the afternoon and we'll be like nothin' ever happened

You haven't stolen my soul, not yet
You haven't stolen my soul
So in your dark twisted visions I will retain control
Or let it be the death of me

Is this what you wanted? Oh I'm all ears
Is it everything you wanted? Oh after all these years

You haven't stolen my soul, not yet
You haven't stolen my soul
So in your dark twisted visions I will retain control

Oh what I'd give just for seven more years to figure myself out
Track Name: Patience
Heavy hearts and broken memories, lined against the wall
I grow tired of the mistakes
This room is loud as ever, we're drowning in the mood
And every piece of you screams it's all over soon

So tell me that you care enough to stay, to stay
Hell maybe we can work it out that way
But you say it's too hard, we've grown apart, there's nothing left to mend your heart
I guess I'll take the blame but it's all up in flames

I said ooh you've been trying my patience X2

She's at home, she's all alone
Dirty pictures on her phone
Darlin' I don't mean to bother my pride's too hard to swallow but it's all over
Damn the pain is blinding, the river ever-winding and I just had to say

You've been trying my patience
I said ooh you've been trying my patience
After all the motive said and done, your bridges overcome, I'm screamin'
Ooh you've been trying my patience

I said ooh you've been trying my patience X2
After all the motive said and done, your bridges overcome, I'm screamin'
Oooh
