Track Name: Safe Kids
We're no wasteland generation stars
We're just aiming for this summer's consequences
Bring your favorite girl or your closest bet
We're all be sitting in the backroom
With all our random expectations
Girls are dancing it's the weekend
We got boys from bands, your enemies and friends
Conveniently prepared

Might be safe to say
That these good times are a part of what we
Want to be
You better lie your way through your golden days

Cuz safe kids
Would never survive this party
Safe kids are boring me out
At all opportunities
Go away all you safe kids
Before my veins run out of reasons to be filled
Hope all you safe kids disappear.


You might have taken everything we are
But you've gone and forgotten the best part
I still know your name
Are you Kim or are you Kelly? No I'm not waiting for your answer
I’m just a boy giving you his best shot
I'd take you out to dance
Even though I don't dance.
Might be safe to say
That these good times are a part of what we
Want to be
You better lie your way through your golden days

Cuz safe kids
Would never survive this party
Safe kids are boring me out
At all opportunities
Go away all you safe kids
Before my veins run out of reasons to be filled
Hope all you safe kids disappear.

Cuz safe kids
Would never survive our parties
Safe kids are boring us
Go away all you safe kids
Before our vein's run out of reasons to be filled
But only safe kids live enough to see us die.
To watch you die
Track Name: Draw
Baby, I miss those lips
Now I'm trapped under these sheets
While my best few lines get sent
Towards my enemy
Don't worry about insanity
You know my mind is fooling me again
You're begging me to stay you know I can't
And if you want to, go around and tell the story on me
I'm traveling to the east
Yeah I'm taking over mountains
While you're face down on some cheap motel bed
Shit's not looking good my dear young girl
Don't you forget
He's not taking "no" for an answer he's a greedy man

"Won't you please my mind sweet doll
I'm no shield in your fake blue sky
Girl I'm a loaded gun
If I see his face again
I'll pull my trigger!"

Now I'm writing the book on distance
While he's only planning on vengeance
Both our hearts are rapidly aging in your hands
And even though we both remember your fame
Me and Cocaine Bob
Are putting on our game face

Ready?

- Bending like trees steady now. -
- Counting my sins won't take me down. -
- Don't blink, I'm quicker than a train. -
- You best not take me for a boy. -
- Respect me I'm the man who's gonna finish you! -

"Ready, set, draw!" (2x)

Girl you look so pretty really yes you do
With your flowered dress and your cowboy boots
You know, don't be sad
Go get your dancing shoes
Cuz' I'm a dancing man (3x)
And this violence is my game.
Track Name: Dirty Money
Take me back south where I grew up
I want my cowboy boots again
And where the quickest drawer
would still be far from me

this dirty money in your hands
oh I've done everything I can
Oh, leave me be

Where I met this Girl little Julie
And she took me out dancing
Where our love grew strong
Right around her neck
She wore my name in gold

This dirty money in my hands was gone
Dirty money in filthy hands
Don't make you strong

So I rise again
Like the shinning sun
And I've been down the evilest path
I'll tell you now
I open my tired eyes
I see you way behind
Holding back hoping that everything comeback again
Someday for sure

So kiss me way before it's too late
My heart is aging and my eyes grow tired
I'll only wish you wrong

Cuz now I'm no cowboy
I ain't number one
I don't need you here sweet baby doll.
See I'm on my own
Cuz now I'm no cowboy
I ain't number one
I don't need you here sweet baby doll
So say you're sorry to the barrel of my gun (4x)
Track Name: Left Hand
You don't have to say goodbye
I already know
Talk about apologies
But apologies are gold, for you
For me they're only silver

You don't have to fake a smile
Oh love please don't
Honey all these tragedies are only fire from
The sparks we set off in the night

Seems ok to me...

If you could find it in your heart and mouth
A place for me you'd see that I
Am only drunk and numb
Cuz sinking ships can't drown my sorrow and my pain
If you could find it in your house and heart
A place for me you'd see that i
Am only getting worse
Cuz bending knees can't save me from the path i'm in

You don't have to say goodbye
I already know
Talk about apologies
But apologies are gold, for you
For me they're only silver

Oh mary, mary save me
Save me from his deadly eyes
Cuz i can't hold on for long
Not alone

Oh mary, mary pull me
Pull me from my sins
Pull from the evilness that's in me

Cuz i'm truly in hell when i breathe!
Track Name: Gold Digger
You lost your shine you cold hearted woman
Feeling too good to lay down with the local boys?
They try but only to get turned down
Let's turn the hat into a crown
That ugly frown into a smile

Blood spilled high heels clicking down the devil's road
A Life that reeks of cheap perfume, cigarette and sweaty poles

Gold digger, heart breaker
Put your lips together girl if all you got is shit to say
Gold Digger, heart breaker
All the boys from south run their mouth when you walk away

You lost your mind Miss Kimberly Walker
Smoking for two and luring all the local toys
That's fine
Just grind your teeth inside your mouth
So far away from your home town
Must got you feeling like a clown

Blood spills high heels clicking down the devil's road
A Life that reeks of cheap perfume, cigarette and sweaty poles

Gold digger, heart breaker
Put your lips together girl if all you got is shit to say
Gold Digger, heartbreaker
