Track Name: Ladder Match
We've got to remember
to stay ahead of the weather
whether we like it or not
this is all that we've got
so forget all your fears
take control of the life you've got here
its what you already knew
but don't ever want to forget about

This isn't the life we chose
but its the life we're living
Forget what you've been told
just get up and take control
Cause its a long way to go
when you don't know where you're going
But I'm not done

Sometimes you need to step outside
catch your breath and remind yourself
of who you are and who you want to be
bits and pieces of our past mistakes
to help prepare us for a better day
cause in Jersey it's hell
and we're hung out to dry
but living your life is always worth the try

These autumn days will never be the same
Cause like the leaves, I'm changing
Track Name: Slumberjack
And I can't go on
this situation unbearable
and with one quick stroke of the wand
I choke my judgment is terrible
not even bringing the life
to every bright light
could keep me up
all through the night
I was to fast to act
I fell short on tact
I knew I'd never win my fights

This heavy breathing
I clench my fists
can you read the fine print
quit speaking in tongues
you son of a gun
you know I'm your number one

It makes no difference
Its time to go home
they want to hold us down
but the show must go on

and now that I've got you on the spot
and I'm too far gone in this game to let go
I know I got you bothered and hot

what I'm about to tell you
is straight from my heart
I'm at square one
so don't even start
I'll take the stage on the world's behalf
my words will tear you apart

bloody knuckles and noses
won't keep you from keeping
your hands to yourself
as I lay dreaming
Take what's left, it's all I have
This life my be the death of me
Track Name: You've Never Been to South of the Border?
I took the road less traveled
trying to find another reason to stay here,
but I can't give these second thoughts
another second chance
cause in the end, i know that I'll be wrong
I know that I'll be wrong again

This Changes Everything

I never want to go home
I'm glad to call this my own
Two years is just not enough
not enough to let go
I left my heart on the road

I remember playing every show
during all those weeks we were out there on the road
I can't think of a better way to show them what I've got
to give and prove to them, that I'm happy here
and I'd never trade this in
no anchor brings me down
to drown alive without a fight
oh my God
I've got to stay right here
I'm on my own

This changes everything
Track Name: 'Til Death Do Us Part
Don't worry, I'm gonna come home tonight
the snow might slow me down, but that's alright,
I guess this might, give me another chance to see my plight
and oh no, I left my wallet at home
along with my phone
so please baby, don't yell at me
I'll find a way to let you know that I'm okay

the snow is coming down hard now
I'm sorry sir, i can't stick around
I crossed my heart that I'd be six feet under the ground
if I'm not home for dinner
I can't leave her
but black ice beat me, to the punch
I guess your father's blessing wasn't blessing enough

Would you remember me
if I left this town and everything
around, around me

I'm sorry, but i won't be coming home tonight
but don't worry cause
I'll find a way to let you know that I'm okay
