Track Name: Give & Take
It's a little thing called a give and take
You takin' all you want, until I break
yeah I break, oh i break
some people give love, while others just hate
oh they hate, oh they hate
you better change your ways, fore its too late
its too late, you know its too late

all this time I thought I'd paid my dues
instead of walkin' lone, I'd walk with you
wish I knew then, what I know is true cause
I would've never fucked around with you

oooooh....Give & Take

So if I give you something, give it back
give it back, baby, give it back
It's a two way street, baby hit the track
Hit the track and don't look back
tried to be your man, take a stand
take a stand, baby, take a stand
But you didn't want that you wouldn't hold my hand
hold my hand, baby, hold my hand

all this time I thought I'd paid my dues
instead of walkin' lone, I'd walk with you
wish I knew then, what I know is true cause
I would've never messed around with you

Oooooh.....Give & Take
Track Name: Maladjusted Man
I used to feel good then it happened to me
I had my love take a plane and leave
she said that, "You're not the kind of man that I need you to be"
So late at night instead of sleep
I lie in my bed, grittin' my teeth
dreaming, bout the way I used to be

And I wonder
will I ever, will I ever
ever be the same?
And I wonder
will I ever
Will I ever have anybody else, but myself to blame?

And so I lay here at night, and I dont feel right
Man I dont understand, I'm the maladjusted man
My heart it yearns, I dont have no choice
You took away my voice, left my such an awful void

I thought that we'd last forever
I thought that our love would make it through
But then you got a taste of betrayal
and there was nothing I could do

And I wonder
will I ever, will I ever
ever be the same?
And I wonder
will I ever
Will I ever have anybody else, but myself to blame?

And so I lay here at night, and I dont feel right
Man I dont understand, I'm the maladjusted man
My heart it yearns, I dont have no choice
You took away my voice, left my such an awful void

And all of this time I thought there's nothing I could do
yeah it depends on you
then you went away and there was nothing more to say
and baby and dont need you

And so I lay here at night, and I dont feel right
Man I dont understand, I'm the maladjusted man
My heart it yearns, I dont have no choice
You took away my voice, left my such an awful void
Track Name: St. Peter
It was a deep, dark night
there was no Mississippi moon
I was feeling down
drank a bottle and drove to town
well I got in a fight
got stabbed in the side
I was tastin' blood
dont cha know I had died

St. Peter, won't you let me in
I've been a bad man and I won't do it again
I will change me evil ways, won't live my life in sin
won't you let, let me in?

Had I known what I know now
I would've change my evil ways
Would of got a dead end job
worked for a minimum wage
Yeah I had some big ideas
you know I had to live my life in sin
Now I'm here, knockin' on the gates and won't nobody let a me in

St. Peter, won't you let me in
I've been a bad man and I won't do it again
I will change me evil ways, won't live my life in sin
won't you let, let me in?
Track Name: What You Like
If you do just what you're told
you'll never win
you'll always be sold
If you do the things you're told
But if you do the things you like
You'll never lose, you'll always be right
if you do the things you like

So, I propose a plan
you and me we could walk across the land
Yeah we could quit our jobs, sell our things, and pawn our cars
Yeah

You should do the things you like
Track Name: Medicine
Take your medicine
take it now
take your medicine
shoot a round
its the only thing that'll help you drown
all those memories
that kept you down
I, well I know, you've been hurt before
but this is the only thing that works anymore
its alright if it helps you sleep at night

Take your medicine
Track Name: Trail of Tears
I've been leaving a trail of tears
wherever I go, wherever I go, wherever I go
and I dont know why, I made you cry
but all of your tears, can't stay inside

And I would do my best
not to, hurt your pride
keep my guns, safely by my side
I won't shoot, I won't shoot
I won't shoot, I won't shoot at you

I've been leaving a trail of tears
wherever I go
so many hearts left in the cold
and i dont know why, I made you cry
but all of your tears can't stay inside

And I would do my best
not to, hurt your pride
keep my guns, safely by my side
I won't shoot, I won't shoot
I won't shoot, I won't shoot at you

I've been leaving a trail
a trail of tears
trail of tears
Track Name: The Line
Go on believe what you wanna believe
they got the cards up their sleeve
and you know, they'll pull one over on you

Its just a game, you're playing life
they dealt the hand, you gotta play it right
and you know, there's something that you can do

Well I try to live my life
and I can't get it right
I'm walkin' on the line
Yeah I try to do whats right
walking on the line, I'm walking on the line

Try to be what you're mind can see
and live life a little differently
when you do, you'll have a whole new view
So play the cards that you have in your hand
forget the pain, take a different stand
when you do
you'll be glad thats its through

Walking on the line, walk walk walk
Track Name: Can't Be Alone
Girl it aint right
the way you make a man feel when you hold him too tight
he can not be alone
can't be alone
without you, without you, no no

Well it aint no joke
but yeah you laugh all the time, with a pinch and poke
he can not be alone
can't be alone
without you, without you, no no

Well it aint right
the way you keep him locked up so tight
you'd better loosen up on yer reigns
he needs space to roam
but he can't be alone
without you

Well It's an awful twist of fate
when he leaves you behind there aint no dinner on his plate
he cannot be alone
Cant be alone
without you, without you, no no

Well it aint right
the way you keep him locked up so tight
you'd better loosen up on yer reigns
he needs space to roam
but he can't be alone
without you
Track Name: Time to Change
Well I think its time I made a change
I drink to sleep at the end of the day
chasing memories with a salt and a lime
here's to you babe we had some good times, but

I believe it, I believe it
I believe its time to change

I light up one more cigarette
I'm filling my lungs with a chemical regret
smoke makes it hard to sleep at night
I aint alright, you know I aint alright

I believe it, I believe it
I believe its time to change
I won't be defeated, won't repeat it
I believe its time to change

Well I think its time I sobered up
I've been drinking for the better of a month
but cleaning up aint so easy to do
when giving up already gave up on you

I believe it, I believe it
I believe its time to change
I won't be defeated, won't repeat it
I believe its time to change
Track Name: Train of Sorrow
I saw a man with two tears in his eyes
one for his woman, the other one for his pride
and I just stood by
so many of us are taking a ride
so many of us will sit and let the stops pass by
on train that never arrives

Cause on the
Train of sorrow you will ride
You're waitin' while your life it done passed ya by
Well I aint ever gonna take that ride
Cause on the train of sorrow
You will die

I saw a girl on that train
she got off and she walked in the rain
and I came up to her with umbrella in hand
"how would ya like it if I kept ya dry?"
she said "you aint the first to try"
and I noticed a dead look in her eye

Cause on the
Train of sorrow you will ride
You're waitin' while your life it done passed ya by
Well I aint ever gonna take that ride
Cause on the train of sorrow
You will die
Track Name: Into My Room
Come into my room
come into my room, lay next to me
come into my room, come into my room
come into my room, lay next to me

Aint asking you to take off your clothes
Aint asking you to do anything you dont want to
come into my room, come into my room
come into my room, lay next to me

Said that you were coming by
Jump with joy, full of pride
Yeah I even washed my sheets,
yes I did now and
Now you're standing there
in your eyes I just stare
You're the prettiest girl I know

Aint asking you to be my bride
Just asking you to come inside
and spend a little time with me
Cause maybe then you'd see, you'd see

So
come into my room, come into my room
come into my room, lay next to me
