Track Name: Runaways
I can't recall the last time you held my hand
or lead me to bed without a drink

We're strangers in these sheets, lost in the afterglow
Of a love that's grown cold and a language that I don't know

We're Runaways, running from love
We're Runaways, love just isn't enough.

Feel the tension in touch, the motion and the rush
Like a foreign dance we, fake all the romance

Baby it's not like it once was ... have we both given up.

We're Runaways, running from love
We're Runaways, love just isn't enough.

Baby it's not like it once was ... I'm sorry I've given up.
Track Name: Where Is Your Sting
There is a day that we'll all feel his string.
Like the crash and the flight of lightning.
A thief in the night rushes in with a grin
but I'll be damned if I'll go again.

Death is like passing from room to room,
Awaking from a blurred dream.
He can greet me and meet me with whiskey or drink
and a hell of a handshake from me.

Oh, Death where is your sting?
I'll be ready, my friend, in the end.
So have a drink until then.

Sometimes life feels just so God dammed, that we welcome the tilt of the drink
But Death like the friend, who leads you back home, rests with you there while you dream

Oh, Death where is your sting?
I'll be ready, my friend, in the end.
So have a drink until then.

Death's an adventure every man needs to face, to look past the peak of unknown.
But I can't see past this day that I'm living ... and I'm not really ready to go home.

Oh, Death where is your sting?
I'll be ready, my friend, in the end.
So have a drink until then.
Track Name: Ships & Branches
Who are we, in this life
But vapors breathed in deep
Feeble fables of lessons learned
The mild and the meek

For we all think the longer thoughts
and give the shorter way
We're all dancing the devils song
and shivering home to pray

We are the ships in the seas
The branch in the wake of the breeze
We are the ships in the seas
Teetering ... Teetering

For we all think the longer thoughts
and give the shorter way
We're all dancing the devils song
and shivering home to pray

Pick your poison the bottles free
Don't mix up the prayer or slir
So go ahead boy and bend your knee
You ain't tellin' him nothing he ain't already heard

We are the ships in the seas
The branch in the wake of the breeze
We are the ships in the seas
The wild and the weak

We are the ships in the seas
The branch in the wake of the breeze
We are the ships in the seas
Teetering ... Teetering
Track Name: My Heart Wasn't Ready
I never thought, I'd be the man
To hold you close, to hold your hand
Be it fear or foolishness
My heart wasn't ready for this


You can lay your head on down
I'll do my best to be around


When you came to life
I arose with a strange divide
See I'm a man of strength and weakness
My heart wasn't ready for this


You deserve ... The best of me
A fired heart, a bended knee
You deserve ... The best of me


When you came to life
I arose with a strange divide
See I'm a man of strength and weakness
My heart wasn't ready for this


You deserve ... The best of me
A fired heart, a bended knee
You deserve ... The best of me
