Track Name: Unbottled
Please just show me the way to a life far removed from all that noise
Track Name: Doug's Philosophy
You can't teach anybody that simply doesn't want to learn
Track Name: Hey Man
We talked it over with bourbon and beer,
Your reasons aint out of nowhere
Track Name: Baby, Baby
You are either with the program or you're not
These are the only two real choices that you've got
You know we try to do our best most everyday
Somehow the minor slip-ups still get in the way

Obviously the bended knee is one way to deliver
The promise of my loyalty, but it makes me shake and shiver

Baby baby, you can do what you want
Every night you can say what you want
Baby baby, I'll do what you want
You can change me
I know you can change me
Oh, for good

I'll be your lover for your life if you grant me one
simple little promise that we might still have some fun
And if we find ourselves moving backward or getting lost
Somehow we'll make it work, no matter what the cost
Track Name: Golden Glory
Not religion, not some God, but the spirit of the living
Track Name: Julianne
Every statement turns into a fight
I just gave up trying to make things right
I won't be there when you come home tonight,
Track Name: Same Way
We search around for some strong foundation
To have you my friend, is what I depend on
Can I depend on you?

It's a dull blade that doesn't quite shave off the parts that do not belong

Oh can you break from all bad patterns, leave them behind?
Go make some sort of brand new fresh start, leave it behind
Track Name: Idle Hands
Idle hands become skin and bone
to wither away and die if left alone
So our love too, would die away
if only one of us was working to make it stay

I behaved like such a fool
Really all I have is you
I didn't mean to push you away
Oh, my darling, please say that you'll stay

Watching all our friends leaving town
It looks like it's just us hanging around
I can't go on without you my dear
'Cause you wash away my doubt and burn my fear

I made it so damn hard, but I'll be good to you
Track Name: The Ransom
All the fallen glory angels
Come to spend their profits tonight
Sun and moon now melt together
Curse the land we abandoned long ago
Track Name: Sweet Summer Morning
Is anybody else feeling the same?
Track Name: Bumblebee
I'm a bumblebee searching around for any sign of nectar to be found,
but there's none around
I'm a fallen tree, blocking the pathway for any other creatures probably
But I'm a bumblebee

And I can fly high up and over through that wild field of clover
where I can stay all day with no one bothering me
You know I aint got no use for money
but I can give you all my honey
And I'll try to be the best that I can be
Track Name: We Try, We Fail
Lessons learned by other folks aint gonna help right now
We'd be best advised to break out of the pattern
It's been way too long

We try, we fail
We give everything to no avail
But we won't ever quit
'cause there's happiness we derive from it
