Track Name: Stranger To Myself
I've been lying to my friends, saying that I'm fine
I need food, but my belly's full of wine
I lost my way, I lost the farm
And Aunt Amy lost it all to the law's long arm

I sure miss my sister Virginia
She's been slinging green in Crested Butte
Hold out girl, I know you got it in you
Stand tall and let your look read resolute

So can someone take me in
I'm just a worn down firing pin
Come and clean the carbon from my soul
There's filth under my skin
I've done all the deadly sins
Just don't ask me my name and take me home

I'm still getting used to having hair
Yeah they kept us bald out in the desert air
Coming under fire half the time we left the wire
And came home with hate and thousand yard stares

Me and my father, we don't speak
And he wrote me a letter late last week
Still ain't had the courage to open it just yet
My heart just can't gamble on that bet

So can someone take me in
I'm just a worn down firing pin
Come and clean the carbon from my soul
There's filth under my skin
I've done all the deadly sins
Just don't ask me my name and take me home

I'll scrape up some change, head for the barrel
I don't feel quite so lonesome when I'm there
We'll pipe out prost and pretend we're not in peril
Just flashing smiles in the face of despair

I just left my cousin a note
I'm sorry if I don't wake is what it wrote
This liver's just too tough, guess I did not take enough
And I'm ashamed to have put him through that stuff

So can someone fuck me up
With your fists or with your drugs
I've become a stranger to myself
There's filth under my skin
You don't want to know where all I've been
My sorrows are a danger to my health

So can someone fuck me up
With your fists or with your drugs
I've become a stranger to myself
Track Name: Oh, To Hide
Anyone can tell you love is blind
But it's only cause that old rule "eye for eye"
This town is just too small so my tires burn
You don't ever lose your girlfriend just your turn

Without trying pretty eyes can ensnare you
Got caught up on a girl named Sara
So I struggled my way out into the snow
Oh, to hide, please be kind Colorado

Who says that beauty can't be bleak
Me and my pride, we've been playing hide and seek
My tires start to fade and my engine stalls
And the mirror says the meanest things of all
Track Name: Sulfer and Nicotine
Hey there, Sergeant, cover my six
I'm bounding for the next house over
Only eleven more months of this shit
Hey, ain't this fun, playing soldier

Ain't no cigarette taste so good
As the one right after combat

Hey 240's make your guns talk boys
I need some suppressing fire

Blind me with dust, bite me with fear
I'm not unscathed but i'm still here
Test my loyalty, weigh my worth
Against this flesh we feed the earth

Ain't no cigarette taste so good
As the one right after combat
Track Name: Anchor
I'm not looking to fix things
Just a fix of any kind
Find me foul or foolish
I'll be out of my mind

Can't draw a full breath
I can't feel my face
Find me rude and reckless
Don't break this embrace

Be my anchor, stay on my line
I think I've done too much this time
Make sure that I'm breathing
Please keep me awake
Good god damn, how much did I take

Am I chasing a buzz
Or am I running from
A piece of myself
A flag on the shelf

Can't pump the breaks
This wasn't the plan
There's never as much as I want
Just as much as I can stand

The uppers, the downers
Prescriptions and gin
The smokes and the powders
The loss of a friend

Be my anchor, stay on my line
I think I've done too much this time
Make sure that I'm breathing
Please keep me awake
Good god damn, how much did I take

I didn't invite them, put that shit to bed
Cocaine attracts more vultures than the dead
Severe palpitations, the tearing of skin
I collapsed onstage last night again
Track Name: Eating Like Kings
I've let the sun set 365 times
With murder running deep in my heart
And in those moments I didn't pull the trigger
I sure as hell played my own part

But you know that it's a snake eat snake world
We slither and serpentine through
Well we all took a bite and six thousand years later
This apple's getting harder to chew

But tonight, boys, we're eating like kings
Cause we've all tasted death enough it seems
Yeah tonight, boys, we're eating like kings

Well it's been several years and a couple thousand sunsets
Since I fired a rifle in rage
A dozen leather couches and substance filled pouches
I still can't seem to fully turn the page

But you know that it's a snake eat snake world
We slither and serpentine through
Well we all took a bite and six thousand years later
This apple's getting harder to chew

But tonight, boys, we're eating like kings
Cause we've all dined with death enough it seems
Yeah tonight, boys, we're eating like kings
