Track Name: Testify
Well it's not too late
To push it out the gate

But it was not simplified
Its been taking too long
I've sung the song

And now it's too late and I'm done
And now it's too late and I'm done

I'm tired of it
And I'm tired of you
It's a steamboat
On the Congo
Yeah you wonder why
You put my head on a stake
Well it's not to late to testify

Up the river
There's a hut full of trees
He's not dead yet
Oh the horror the horror
I'll go and I'll see
The one you wish

But I can't, I can't let the truth out
But I can't, I can't let the truth out

Track Name: Dead Bee
Tell me what I want to hear
You know that I’m not a seer
Tell me you love me dear
You know that I'll always be here

Dried out eyes and sand in the sea, you know
Dead bee you got your stinger in me
Yeah dried out eyes and sand in the sea

Come near and whisper in my ear
I'll listen without fear
Come near and hold my hand
I'll be here to understand your

Dried out eyes and sand in the sea, you know
Dead bee you got your stinger in me
Yeah dried out eyes and sand in the sea

When the night is long, won't you
Clime the barracks for me
When the storm comes crashing down
I'll blocked you from the sound, you know

I don't mind

What you do to me, yeah
I don't mind
I don't mind
What you do to me, yeah
I don't mind

Track Name: Ramblin' Way
lyrics inspired by Ramblin’ On My Mind - Robert Jonson

I got ramblin', I got Rambling on mind
Well I got, got a need to see your kind
Its not time to worry, I got nice little journey for two
We gonna travel the realm and make sweet love too

Well now we're off, yeah going our rambling' way
Down to the station yeah
We're gonna catch the first mail train outa’ town
Ooon our rambling' way

Now you've gone and done the wrong
And I hate to leave you here babe
But now I've got mean things all on my mind yeah
Why’d you have to treat me so unkind

Well now I’m Off!

And all the things I got
They don’t mean anything
No not a thing at all

Well now I'm off, yeah going my rambling' way
Down to the station yeah
Im gonna catch the first mail train outa town
Ooon my rambling' way

Now I'm left to play those old guitar blues
I got the blues about miss so-and-so
Yeah well she got the blues for me too
So why pretty babe you gotta treat me so unkind

And now I got mean things on my mind
Track Name: My Mind Is On You
And how will I know about you
Or am I just wasting my time
You know I never had a clue
A little evidence in the direction

And what if I never hear you
Or never perceive the time
You always come out quite blue
A little evidence in the deception

They can’t convince me otherwise
No matter
No matter how hard they try
No matter how hard they try

Now my minds on you
No matter
No matter how hard I try
No matter how hard I try
No matter how hard I try
Track Name: Sand
Down in the soil
The worlds slowed down
And we’ll never know
What comes after?

Yeah it may be to hard to see
Its not manifest destiny
Nor the best we will be
Misinterpreted lies
We’ll find never die

Yeah it’s a shame
They don’t feel shamed
Its no game and
And it’s time to change

Buried in the sand
Are pieces of what?
Stuck my head under ground
Now everything is upside-down
Track Name: Shades of Blue
Oh I never thought I'd know your name
It would only complicate it all
Well you look so… pretty in the sun
And look I know how

Well there's so many shades of blue
Yeah its your sorrow too

I wish I'd become one of them
You never never meant 
The stars to come down silent in the sun down
Like the softest cataclysmic storm 

Well there's so many shades of blue
Yeah its your sorrow too

Oh you  remind of the sea foam
White one the sea blue and Green
I wish I would’ve hidden in the waves
And oh never mind

Well there's so many shades of blue
Yeah its your sorrow too

And in the rain You still look quite the same
You’ve seen the darkness but your pretty again 
Track Name: Little House of Bones
I'm in my little house and the walls are coming down
Theres dirt on the floor and the plants have grown around 
I thought I didn't know but now I know I've always known

I'm living in my little house of bones
Oh my, my little house of bones 

My life is seeping through the cracks and down
The wind comes up and my little house starts to groan 
I live down the road in the gloom, we all moan 

I'm living in my little house of bones
Oh my, my little house of bones 
My house of bones
