Track Name: The Greatest Way
I am my mothers son
Never one to take abuse
Of what you put me through

I lost everything I had in the greatest way (greatest way)
But love is not the same, i wouldn't give it for anything
I have won and lived and lost all in a day
I know i needed to get away
From all the ties i made
and all the things that made me go insane

Don't pull your punches baby let me bleed
I love you fucking people telling me
I'm wrong, in following dreams that I have had
since i stopped giving up.

and when i say what i mean to say
i lost when i got on the plane
I knew that i'd return again
and now that ive found a family
that i lost when i got on the plane
i knew id get it back, again.

Don't pull your punches baby let me bleed
I love you fucking people telling me
I'm wrong, for following dreams that I have had
since i stopped giving up.

we the people, selling everything to survive inside of this
we the people, living just to feel alive
It's lonely so lonely but here's the only place i feel in line
and it's for me but im running out of time

Don't pull your punches baby let me bleed
I love you fucking people telling me
I'm wrong, for following dreams that I have had
since i stopped giving up.
Track Name: Gentleman
say i'm wrong
say the words that fix you
any other time, i would
push you off the ledge, youre leaning
but i dont believe in you

so misleading until youre better known
from who you knew
you'll end up alone
we bend we bray
and it wears you down
where are you now and oh i hope
you'll see youre the same

you are a brave soul, you are a martyr we know
we breathe the same, we bleed the same
yours is not gold
you have the audacity to admire you
theres a reason your death bed is empty you fool

we'll figure out what you believe in for you to feel emotion
but right now i'm gonna tell you son
i am, what i want to be
and you know you'll never make it up to me
and i am, all that i see so if anybody asks im gone you're history
everybody knows, no one ever shows up anymore
so i'm gonna tell you what i want to say
in the simplest kind of way and be a gentleman.

ive got a better tune, the kind i sing for people under you
i see what you do, i only see it cause i did it too
and ive seen common criminals take less than you do
but you don't see anything wrong at all.
im not the only one.

Figure out what you believe in for you to feel emotion
but right now i'm gonna tell you son
i am, what i want to be
and you know you'll never make it up to me
and i am, all that i see so if anybody asks im gone you're history
everybody knows no one ever shows up anymore
so i'm gonna tell you what i want to say
in the simplest kind of way and be a gentleman.

we're gonna settle down
we're gonna listen to reason
you were all wrong
instead of taking it in
you go on and on and on and on
on and on and on and on and on...

Figure out what you believe in for you to feel emotion
but right now i'm gonna tell you son
i am, what i want to be
and you know you'll never make it up to me
and i am, all that i see so if anybody asks im gone
Track Name: Tennessee
all that he needs, is a world that believes
that he's not the kind of person i am
all i could see, was a coward raising me
that is not the kind of person i am
or i need to be

its not like, i was any better off
but apparently i was

Shaking all his demons around
doesnt make him appreciate you now
But when it comes to being a man
thats when he hesitates and lets you down

I broke bread with the best of them, best of you.
I guess the best thing wasn't true
I hoped i prayed for the better
but my mother waited for you
through the stamps, moves and life at the bottom
the new you's and all the other problems
we, can't choose if love has its way
but i hated all of you.

Shaking all his demons around
doesnt make him appreciate you now
But when it comes to being a man
thats when he hesitates and lets you down

all on the table now (all on the table now)
i broke bread with the best of you
no one came close to
and i didn't know any better
carried away by someone who always knew
it started with words
and ends with a curse
and if my papa could see me now

Shaking all his demons around
doesnt make him appreciate you now
But when it comes to being a man
thats when he hesitates and lets you down
Track Name: Drown
I'm in love
but i'm a liar
and i push you and we break
down slow

when i called you from the jail
ashamed i would put you through it
and i called myself a man
i never was

even if the low is much too low
even when the highs too high no
dont jump, i'll drown
you jump, i'll drown
don't jump, i'll drown

despite what i say
i need you to breathe
as for me, i'll miss everything
from ellie to real love

when i called you from the jail
ashamed i would put you through it
and i called myself a man
i never was

even if the low is much too low
even when the highs too high no
dont jump, i'll drown
you jump, i'll drown
don't jump, i'll drown
