Track Name: Iron In Me
Used to pull my punches,
Spend my time, Down on my knees
with the judgement from people, I don't care to please
Smoke top dealers coming, Bad heart thumping
Go ahead, Give that turpentine to me

Theres a racetrack down the line, Where I put my money down
Tell the man, Raise the flag when I am gone
Temptation wraps around you heavy, a blanket in the rain
Keep your hands steady, Theres no one to blame

I'm rude, I'm getting badder everyday
Teach me to love you like a blanket in the rain
Aint no one gonna take, Iron in me
No no no no

When the rust has turned the pillars to sand
My body is a secret sun that no one can see
Do not stop to wonder whats left of the man
Aint no one gonna take the Iron in me

I'm rude, I'm getting badder everyday
Teach me to love you like a blanket in the rain
Aint no one gonna take the Iron in me
No no no no
Track Name: Ruin
Passed a city of paper
Throwing shadows of light
A child tried to hold, God in his hands
I lit a match, to watch the ruin go on by

Well I once loved a girl, who drew the whiskey price
Pulled on her ribbons, they cut me
I lit a match, to watch the ruin go on by

And the sweet taste of ruin
The lonely passing of time
And paper roads, paper cities
Shadows of light

Well the train rocks the virgin, to the cradles delight
Words have two meanings, when whispered at night
I lit a match, to watch the ruin go on by

And the sweet taste of ruin
The lonely passing of time
And paper roads, paper cities
Shadows of light
Track Name: Shoot To Kill
My passion is a twisted engine
Hate is the lonely gasoline
I did all I could do, to stop it
Now I keep on driving

I aint got all the time to be holy everyday
Mama if you try, its for the dead you should pray
Said to me boy, what makes you need this thrill
Well I never meant to hurt no one, I always shoot to kill

I spend my 45, the rising of the sun
Mama if you cry, cry for the gun
Said to me boy, all you do is take
well if you give me the whole road, I'm driving in both lanes

Rock me, a little harder
so I to sleep may go
Remember I never meant to hurt you
when I shoot I shoot to kill

My little empire, carved out of stone
Hit the hammer with the nail to break the kingdoms throne
People always asking me, your hand break the law
Anyone can do it, anyone can fall

I aint got all the time to be holy every day
Mama if you cry, its for the dead that you should pray
said to me boy, all you do is take
well if you give me the whole road, I'm driving in both lanes

Rock me, a little harder
So I to sleep may go
Remember I never meant to hurt you
when I shoot, I shoot to kill
Track Name: The Strangled Road
Broken ring of kindness, sinking with the sun
Chased it to stop beliving, the darkness is gone
Just a turn on this strangled road

Heard the sound of a trumpet
Amen the silence is long
The whisper that reaching love takes, down down down
Just a turn on this strangled road

In my blue jeans
I know I'm gonna die in
Haven't seen my family
since these shoes were new
Id move heaven, as it crumbles before me
Making the same mistakes, I always do

The strangled road

Down on your shoulders, don't mistake me for a son of god
Creation has bitten my loving hands
Just a turn on this strangled road
