Track Name: Fake Americans
a painted sign on the road
heading out to the Jesus land

giving warning to the lovers
and the other that'll hold your hand

i aint lost now honey
but i cant tell you where i am

and i think i'm gonna shout
shout it from the heavens
there is something wrong with me

there's a fire up ahead honey
i'm gonna hit the brakes
there's a good chance of dying
but a better chance of being fake
Track Name: Rebel Ghost
she said she had a rebel ghost that i won't fight
she said she had a rebel ghost that came to her at night
i said 'hold up honey, i'm a little better at fightin'
'hold up honey, you don't give me credit for nothin'

say he got a real fast car well ghosts don't drive
say he got a real good job well ghost's gonna lie
well i'm just a boy from a southern town
and lord knows i'm a rebel up and down
but she ain't gonna love me until the day i die

'hold up honey, i'm a little better at fightin'
'hold up honey, you don't give me credit for nothin'
Track Name: Dragonfly
i'm too torn up at two in the morning
somewhere in the night i see her face
but i wouldn't give about who you're with
the slow and the steady's gonna win this race

the way you drink and the way you talk
feels like a dragonfly without any wings
without any wings you won't fly

the smoke it lingers/her hair might tell
tell me a story of a wishing well
that took my dollars and made them change
i'd wish them all for you to say my name

and the way you drink and the way you talk
feels like a dragonfly without any wings
without any wings you won't fly
Track Name: Old Flames
well you got your street talk going
said you got a brand new home
well i dont mind
well i know you wont ever
want to move to the burbs
and fall behind

im alright and you're alright
we've got cuts and we've got bruises
but they shimmer in the night

old flames dont mean nothing
old flames go to show
i aint gotta tell you nothing
that you dont already know

your daddy gave you money
and your momma sent you off to find
a piece of mind
spent your money on dope
and you never came home again
and you fell behind

wont you come back baby 'cause i want you home
listen to me now let it be this song
come back baby 'cause i want you home this time

im alright and you're alright
we've got cuts and we've got bruises
but they shimmer in the night

old flames dont mean nothin
old flames go to show
i aint gotta tell you nothing
that you dont already know
Track Name: Up On That Offer
i been working so hard but i just couldn't stop her
took two weeks off and took you up on that offer
up on out

too pretty to touch/gonna write you a letter
gonna end my search/gonna make me better
Track Name: Lorraine
cold war blue
start a new one
make a mess out of you
show your friends who they thought they knew
gonna be so so gonna be so so
break me into two
bring the hell out of you

i can't even stop the pain
creature standing in the rain
bring your daddy back Lorraine
bring your daddy back Lorraine

you sold my heart you sold my heart
you were the one to always pitch a duck
crushing flower beds with your truck
but i gave into you i gave into you
gonna be so so

i can't even stop the pain
creature standing in the rain
bring your daddy back Lorraine
bring your daddy back Lorraine
Track Name: People Don't
fly away from the home you knew
pay attention to who will follow you
'cause children grow old but people don't
if you ask me if i will i won't

flowers bloom on the hill i know
and i know i'll have to let them go
they get their keys and they say goodbye
and when it happens you'll know why

'cause children grow old but people don't
if you ask me if i will i won't
no i won't
Track Name: Heartache
give me one simple thing
and i won't even try to think
'bout the way you look
and the way you drink
and the way you had me
with a smile and a wink

heartache just might go the way you planned
heartache just might go the way you planned

take me back to the oval rink
where you said you loved the way we linked
and you said you loved
the way i sing
put a smile on me that would never sink
but it did. call me crazy for how i wish

heartache just might go the way i planned
heartache just might go the way i planned
Track Name: Dead End Road
baby i'm sorry you shouldn't know
how i've been blowing down a dead end road
and how i've been living is making me cold
if i keep leaving will you follow me home?

maybe i'm dying i wouldn't know
people are staring and watching me go
down a dead end road
baby i'm sorry i'm a dead end road
