Track Name: Dyin' On My Mind
Dyin On My Mind
     
Amber Lynn wants to raise kids in the country               
Joe’s just obsessed with the sin and the city   
i’m in the suburbs just trying to survive
i got dyin on my mind
                                                    
she wants a Prius and he wanted a Hummer
they compromised now they drive a blue hover craft     
i never drive i can’t even unwind                                    
i got dying on my mind

he loves his Bible  she reads the Koran                                                             
he’s from Virginia and she’s from Iran         
maybe it’s love but we still don’t survive                              
i’ve got dyin on my mind
                                                                                 
he and his colleagues go hunting for charities
she joined the club that now let’s in minorities                     
i sit at home writing songs in the dark                           
i’ve got dyin on my mind
                                               
but maybe I’ll go out and paint the town red tonight
stumble home drunk and post pictures on the internet
i wish that I could but I don't have the time                                   
i got dyin on my mind
Track Name: Rebuilding Paradise
Rebuilding Paradise

we go to church
just to meet who we’ll fuck til the end                                       
reinterpret the bible                                   
to mesh with the trends
blame all our tragedies on deeds of gay men          
we’re the neighbors you dream about killing                                                  
on the weekend
                                                                            
we track the books that you read on your kindle in bed
we define the word marriage much better than you
trust me we’re trying we’re fishers of men
but we dabble in real estate development on the weekend
                                                                            
cause we’re rebuilding paradise                                        
one brick at a time                                
we’re rebuilding paradise                                 
with fences so high
We’ve been waiting patiently we’ve had our highs and lows                  
now we’re rebuilding paradise                
in case he never shows
                                                                            
we all assume that messiah will show in our lifetime
so why fight diseases they’re just doing god’s work
trust me we’re trying we’re fishers of men                   
but we dabble in real         
estate development on the weekend
                                                                            
cause we’re rebuilding paradise                                        
one brick at a time                               
we’re rebuilding paradise                          
with fences so high
We’ve been waiting patiently we’ve had our highs and lows                           
now we’re rebuilding paradise                                  
in case he never shows
Track Name: Greene Whiskey Revival
Greene Whiskey Revival
                                
i need to be saved not from all of my sins
but the ones that would put in jail
see i stole some things  and i killed a few men
i aint paid my taxes just yet

well they say that jesus
will always forgive us
his anger is really quite rare
so point me the way to nearest cathedral
i got me one hell of a prayer

said oh precious jesus
wash away the worst of my sins
said oh precious jesus
i need to get my ass redeemed

well i read the bible
while drunk in a hotel
and it never mentioned my name
not sure what to do but i’m tired of running
and i can’t af-ford the co-caine

so i gave up scrappin
with holy ghost jesus
the father and all his commands
so I got me a haircut
and quit chasin short skirts
and now i’m one hell of a man

said oh precious jesus
wash away the worst of my sins
said oh precious jesus
i need to get my ass redeemed

forgive me my science
but my heart is much lighter
with Jesus residing with-in
but as the day lingers
temp-tation comes knocking  
and i fear i may just give in

see i got to drinkin
with a quick witted woman
the kind that don’t ask you your name
thank god i’m forgiven
a child of the king
you guessed it, we’re fixin to sin

said oh precious jesus
wash away the worst of my sins
said oh precious jesus
i need to get my ass re-deemed
Track Name: Jesus Loves Me
Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me this I know
for the Bible tells me so
little ones to him belong
they are weak but he is strong

but when we die
all his love will wash away
and in the end all those fables fade away
and we’ll never know we were alone

Jesus loves me this i know
for my father told me so
lovely words for me to repeat

a simple faith he passed down to me

but when we die
all his love will wash away
we’ll never ride in those chariots of fire
and in the end all those fables fade away
and we’ll never know we were alone

mother loved me this I know
everyday she told me so
last few days she struggled to speak
as she passed she whispered to me

when we die
all his love will wash away
we’ll never ride in those chariots of fire
and in the end all those fables fade away
and we’ll never know we were alone  

so when i die
you can leave me in the rain
you can bury me or burn me on a pyre
i’ll be gone and finally free
there’s no ghost and no soul they have no control
did you ever know we were alone?

jesus loves me this i know
