Track Name: 1 Corinthians 13:13
Been runnin' away from the choices we've made
These old hearts broke in two
And wastin' away the rest of our days
Howlin' at the moon

This lifetime of shame, of heartache and blame
Is all we've left to lose
Yet, here we remain; still searchin' for ways
To shake these lonesome blues

But faith alone won't make it matter
And hope alone won't make it true
And, darlin', love alone, it won't last forever
And neither will I or you
Track Name: Ashes & Lead
Moses fell to his knees
And threw the tablets down
Yahweh parted the sea
To watch his children drown

John the Baptist sung
Of ashes and lead
Judas loaded his gun
Took his silver and fled

Beneath the darkness of day
Faith left him singin' the blues
Hope lead his heart astray
Love helped him tie the noose
Track Name: To Give Up (The Ghost)
Our dreams and desires are dead
Our daughters both nestled in bed
While I sit and wonder if anything's worth being said at all

If the sun fails to rise
And stars fall from the sky
Can anything change that sad, vacant look in your eyes?

Well, I just don't know
Guessin' I never did
Did we walk this road from end to end

Just to give up the ghost
That's been haunting us here
Track Name: The Noose
Driftin' off again
Been lyin' here since who knows when
Watchin' the moon pretend
That the sun will rise again

And shoutin' at the wind
Beggin' to be let back in
But darkness don't pretend
That it will see the light again

Still you handed me the noose
And these long, hard Red Bank blues
Then silently turned and walked away

And left me here to choose
'tween this broken heart and you
Knowin' all the while I never could

Still you handed me the noose
And these long, hard Red Bank blues
Knowin' all along which one I'd choose
Track Name: Lent
I been livin' within
This desert of sin
Where my heart goes to break
Again and again

Since I let you back in
Just under the skin
You been hauntin' my dreams
Again and again and again and again

Now, I ain't slept for weeks
I'm just bones and skin
And Lucifer's whisperin' to me
Again and again and again
Track Name: Punish the Soul
Punish the body
Punish the mind
Punish the mind
Punish the soul
Track Name: Bluebonnet Blues
I met her near Houston, north of Bellaire
A friend of a friend; brown eyes and black hair
We kissed by the roadside, beneath the half moon
Ten minutes too late; five Sundays too soon

She said, "I am royalty. Treat me in kind."
I wanted her body; she gave me her mind
And though our hearts are beholden, I whispered this tune
Ten minutes too late; five Sundays too soon

The last time I saw her was nine days ago
In the back of a Cadillac, on a west Houston road
As she sped down the highway, I cursed at the moon
Ten minutes too late; five Sundays too soon

Ophelia, Ophelia, whom did you betray?
Crowned queen of east Texas, found dead the next day
Now your bodied lies buried by Galveston Bay
Never so close, and yet so far away
Track Name: Exit 1/Resurrection Blues
The moon will rise before the sun
The moon will rise before the sun
Forgive the morning if the daylight never comes
The moon will rise before the sun

The sun will set before the dark
The sun will set before the dark
The constellations, dying stars who've lost their spark
The sun will set before the dark

So prepare the dead who tomorrow rise again
And prepare the blind to see
Then take what you may before our love fades away
And give what's left to me
Track Name: In Ruins
We came to the ridge under darkening skies
The mountains reflecting the last rays of light
Down in the valley, they sang and they prayed
But we knew that no laughter be heard down that way

Into the night up ahead we could see
A house full of liars, traitors, and thieves
But each one stepped for in the night to a man
And laid out our brother to rest on the land

Long last he at peace, not a brother had wept
Or lashed out in anger, the counsel he'd kept
For a fall into darkness at the end of the path
Will not bar the way for who carries you back
Track Name: This City Won't Let Go
You know, I tried to leave the city
To escape the bitter cold
I buried my possessions
Beneath its streets of gold (to regain control)

And though I bend beneath the pressure
Of hours already gone
The city limits are approaching
It can't hold on for long (though its grip is strong)

The city wants you to know
That it won't let go
No, it won't let go

The city wants you to know
That it won't let go
If you don't let go
