Track Name: High To Get By
We get high to get by
Keep Rollin, take it day by day
Holdin out till my legs give way
Trail blazing, workin through the haze
I got the green light
Swing away

I take the higher road
Make the embers glow
To ease the pain, yeah

We're broke, making it work
Head down, hands in the dirt
We're broke, fight for the dime
We get high to get by

Keep growing
Move on from my mistakes
Tip the scales, make the weight
Still smoking oh, but bring home my pay
All this just to get a taste

I take the higher road
Make the embers glow
To ease the pain, yeah

We're broke, making it work
Head down, hands in the dirt
We're broke, fight for the dime
We get high to get by

One toke and I'm feeling right
Eyes shining like the city lights
We're all singing at the end of the night
We get high to get by

We're broke, making it work
Head down, hands in the dirt
We're broke, fight for the dime
We get high to get by
Track Name: Long Gone
I never meant to take too long
Always the one to set the alarm
Oh but beneath the crest and away from the nest
I got a feeling that we've been doing this wrong
And I've been taking too long
Cause I all I gotta tell you is

What we have is dead
Oh yeah, but this time
My hand weren't red
(You know my hands weren't red)
So don't wait up too long
Come dusk or dawn i'll be
Long gone, Long gone

Yeah I'll be
Long gone, long gone
Long gone, Long gone

We always used to go so wild
But now this road is running out of miles
Yeah, you've been feeding me a big helping of grief
This love is faded and it's time for this man to run free
That's all I wanna be
Yeah all I gotta tell you is

What we have is dead
Oh yeah, but this time
My hand weren't red
(You know my hands weren't red)
So don't wait up too long
Come dusk or dawn i'll be
Long gone, Long gone
Yeah I'll be

Long gone, Long gone
Long gone, yeah all I gotta tell you is

What we have is dead
Oh yeah, but this time
My hands weren't red
(You know my hands weren't red)
So don't wait up too long
Oh yeah cause come dusk or dawn well i'll be
Long gone, Long gone

Yeah I'll be
Long gone, long gone
Track Name: Time To Waste
Some peace of mind
A moment to unwind
You and I could use a change of pace
Maybe we all need to get away, some time to waste
Maybe we all need to make a change for a better place

Oh, It starts as a whisper
And it won’t stop
Gets a little louder
And it feels like
Time is running out so
Don’t wait too long
We won’t need it until its gone

Let go of this life you’re leading
And breathe in
Lift your head and look around
Don’t take it lying down

Let’s leave this road
To make one for our own
At least I’m told ahead are better days
When everybody wants to get away with some time to waste
Maybe we all need to make a change for a better place
Yeah

Oh, It starts as a whisper
And it won’t stop
Gets a little louder
And it feels like
Time is running out so
Don’t wait too long
We won’t need it until its gone

Let go of this life you’re leading
And breathe in
Lift your head and look around
Don’t take it lying down

Don’t let the moment miss you
This feeling should be hitting home
I was barely keeping up
I was steady losing trust
But time ain’t waiting for no one
We won’t need it until it’s gone

Let go of this life you’re leading
And breathe in
Lift your head and look around
Don’t take it lying down
Track Name: Walk Alone
You want the truth, what if it's hard to handle
This used to be, all that I stand for
You do your best, always wanting more
I might be the last one left, you get what you pay for
Thought you'd be the last one I would ever wake up for

It might be better if you walk alone
And it hurts to know, you're letting go
I feel this emptiness is closing in
Nobody else will ever take your place, again

I got no plan, no map to follow
You're the reason, I'm feeling hollow
There's no excuse, for feeling sorrow
I might be the last one left, you get what you pay for
Thought you'd be the last one I would ever wake up for

It might be better if you walk alone
And it hurts to know, you're letting go
I feel this emptiness is closing in
Nobody else will ever task your place, again

So if I go it alone, would you even notice I'm gone
Maybe it's better this way.
Track Name: Break Me
Stuck inside this living hell, oh
Bruised and battered, I'm not well
Well as far as I can see
There's no end in sight for me
She's got me under her spell

Now I've been told
My soul is sold
(She devil)
And I can't get free

I come undone
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
I should hide and run
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
But I need love

Now I ain't nothing but a man
She has me eating from her hand
She's cruel to the core
She keeps me wanting more
Why, I'll never understand
No never, no

Now I've been told
My soul is sold
(She devil)
And I can't get free

I come undone
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
I should hide and run
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
But I need love, I need love
I need love, you know I need it

Oh, she devil
Sure look good to me
And I'll never be free again

Oh said I come undone
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
I should hide and run
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
You break me I said

I come undone
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
I should hide and run
You break me woman
When push comes to shove
But I need love

Oh lord, you know I need it
Track Name: Stripes
Fingers are itchin’ for a fight
Like a work man hanging from his neck tie
Work through the day but in the night
No, you can’t sleep
You comb your mind for the reasons why

Why you were once so complacent
But now your wheels hit the pavement

We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Put in our time
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)

You’re a deep man but the money’s paper thin
Cashing a cheque like a cut on the skin
You need a change, where to begin
Well you got an empty head
So there’s room for something moving in

All the time you were wasting
Now your wheels hit the pavement

We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Put in our time
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Oh, this world we live in, go broke or give in
We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)

It’s like we’re waisting away
Just for a little bit of pay

If we never find a way to grow
Drink the well until it’s dry, oh my
And If we can’t define the line between right and wrong
We’ll be living bottom barrell till we reach our dying day

We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Put in our time
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Oh, this world we live in, go broke or give in
We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
