Track Name: Sinners On the Take
you'd better watch your back in tennessee
they'll let your house burn to the ground
if you ain't paid the fee

walk straight through the streets of tuscon
the line is mighty fine
have your papers, pockets full
show me yours and i'll show you mine

all you sinners on the take
all you sinners in the stands, clap hands
your angry god's got one more song to sing


take down your false assumptions
throw away your do-good rush
the boom and bust you vote for
will crumble into dust

all you sinners on the take
all you sinners in the stands, clap hands
your angry god's got one more song to sing
Track Name: Weight of the Matter
Lately the weight of the matter's been slumping my shoulders
I wake in the morning and pray that the day it ain't colder

But you, never peeked out
No you, write your poems, in doubt

I thought if I told you my worries, you'd help me console them
And I thought if I stared at my hands long enough you would hold them

But you, never reached out
No you, never reached out

No you, never reached out
No you, never reached out
Track Name: Pilgrims
When you pass all them pilgrims on the way to San Antone
Feel the wind on your skin and the bend in your bone
Don't pay twice for silver stay away from their gold
Don't think twice for sabbath, say grace and go home

Proceed to the trumpet
Take head of its tone
Let the tear on your cheek
Blaze a path of its own
Remember the verses, sing em all in a row

When you pass all them pilgrims on the planes of oaklahom
Say blessings for passage, safe paths should they roam
Say blessings for baggage for it’s all overthrown
In the ground we feed all of them seeds that we’ve sewn

Ovoid talk of missions, be mindful of tone
be able to ditch all them things that you own
remember the verses, sing em all in a row

When you Pass all them pilgrims and you're feeling all alone
Remember that water can soften a stone
the cracks that you slipped through, and the loves that you've known
in the ground we feed all of them seeds that we've sewn
Track Name: Watchdogs
I watch you walk away
I ask you would you stay
You said, No
But I gotta slow down."

Said I'm gonna fly away
Said I'm gonna stay up late
Don't you know., don't you know?

All Around I see the watchdogs out

I watch you go
I watch you stay
I want to go
Away
But i gotta slow down
Oh i gotta slow down

All around I see the watchdogs out
All around I see the watchdogs out
