Track Name: Grandpa At War
I'm moving 'cross sea
Moving 'cross country
No one will ever find me here
My boat hit some rocks
I'm sinking so slowly
Would you ever think you'd find me at

The bottom of the ocean

You said you'd cry 'til my return
In my heart your fire burns
Like the candle's dripping wax
It begins to harden

Surviving a fall
Failed suicide machines
Give me death or give me sunlight
I'm gasping on words
Choking on blessing
Would you ever think you'd find me at

Your doorstep with nothing

I've made a home you'll never see
Walking around it's killing me
My old life is your new death
We never meant nothing
You said you'd cry 'til my return
In my heart your fire burns
Like the candle's dripping wax
It begins to harden
Track Name: Love Me Sometimes
I know
You love me sometimes
I know
You always try

Fall asleep to the same old song
Get up and shake it all day long
Go 'til you know you can't go wrong
Go 'til you're right where you belong

And if there's something you need
I'll tell you just what to do
Don't bother with me
The choice is just for you
Just for you
You, yeah, you

I know
You love me sometimes
I know
You always try
I know
You love me sometimes
I know
'Cause it gets you high
High, high, high

I just bought what I've been sold
Love gone crazy, love gone cold
Love is endless, love is bold
I don't know what I've been told

And if there's something you need
I'll tell you just what to do (yeah)
Don't bother with me
The choice is just for you
Just for you
You, yeah, you

I know
You love me sometimes
I know
You always try
(So hard baby)
I know
You love me sometimes
(You've got to desecrate the temple just to keep it standing)
I know
'Cause it gets you high
High, high, high, High

And if there's something you need
Track Name: General Sherman Blues
They came in droves
They came in droves
On a Northern wind
On a Northern Wind
He'll shake the ground
He'll shake the ground
With spoil and sin
With spoil and sin

But take a look down at your hands
They're awash with the blood of your kin
The blood of your kin

He'll scorch the earth
He'll scorch the earth
On which you stand
On which you stand
Oh, He'll put sorrow's stain
He'll put sorrow's stain
On scarlet sands
On scarlet sands

And you'll beg for the mercy
You never gave your fellow man
Your fellow man

Say your morning prayer
Say your morning prayer
Pray he don't come back
Pray he don't come back
Don't look behind
Don't look behind
On ruin and wrack
On ruin and wrack

With you or without you
The old road is going to fade into the black
Into the black

You better change your ways
You better change your ways
Of ignorance and hate
Of ignorance and hate
He's going to fill your heart
He's going to fill your heart
With so much weight
With so much weight

When Sherman comes a riding
They will be no escaping from your fate
Oh, From your fate
