Track Name: Oklahoma
I left my heart in Oklahoma

I leave pieces of myself

Wherever I go

I’ve committed acts of treason

Conspiracy’s in season

Your friends become foes

Little kids shouldn’t play big boy games without bulletproof vests

Do you know

How she sings

When she’s controlled

By puppet strings

There’s no surrender

There’s no retreat

We are the stray dogs

Exploited mutilated and beat

There’s no surrender

There’s no retreat

We are the stray dogs

Exploited do-it-yourself defeat

Theres no surrender

there’s no surrender

there’s no surrender

We are the stray dogs
Track Name: Hideaway
You were my rock, you were my anchor

No longer shielding me from the blisters, the sores, and cankers

All those nights of tossing and turning

Past embers brightly burning

Now I’m left with this travesty of third degree burns and charred memories

Places are like ghosts

They can haunt us all

What are you trying to conjure from me?

The ghost’s of christmas past

The one’s who never last

Another foreclosed hideaway

You woulda coulda been

The greatest story that I ever told

Do you hear the sounds of my restless bones? They are growing old

I’m so sick of transitional seasons

If we could only try change for treason

I always take the worst of the beatings

Because I’m the first arriving and the last one leaving

Places are like ghosts

They can haunt us all

What are you trying to conjure from me?

The ghost’s of christmas past

The one’s who never last

Another foreclosed hideaway

You were my hideaway

Wreckage from the past united

Our safe havens bulldozed and divided

I always take the worst of the beatings

I always take the worst of the beatings

I always take the worst of the beatings

I’m the first arriving and the last one leaving

Places are like ghosts

They can haunt us all

What are you trying to conjure from me?

The ghost’s of christmas past

The one’s who never last

Another foreclosed hideaway

Another foreclosed hideaway

Another foreclosed hideaway

You were my hideaway
Track Name: Titan
We have been conquered

We’ve been overthrown and left behind

Our legacy has been sacrificed

We are all martyrs

We sold our souls and stayed behind

We were shot and hung before our prime

The faces are nameless

The places have faded

Ambition sedated

Our youth has been wasted

We are all titans

Drenched in blood

Side by Side

We won’t expire without a fight

We are bastards of lions

Our bloody battle of attrition

We forge ahead to make our transition

The faces are nameless

The places have faded

Ambition sedated

Our youth has been wasted
Track Name: Let's Get It
When I return to life

I’m coming back as fire

Incinerate all the liars

My ghost still roams these streets

Haunting the concrete

We won’t lie down with the weak

It’s not giving in, it’s not giving up

We won’t pay worship to the garish sun

It’s not giving in, it’s not giving up

A reclamation

Hell fire dictation

He’s not dead, he’s just asleep

It’s getting darker down here

Please just give me your hand

We’re gonna find a way out

It’s not giving in, It’s not giving up

We won’t pay worship to the garish sun

It’s not giving in, it’s not giving up

And we are the children of a dying sun

I’m coming back to life

I will return tonight

A reclamation of fire

It’s getting darker down here

Please just give me your hand

We’re gonna find a way out of here

It’s not giving in, it’s not giving up

We’re gonna find a way out of here
Track Name: Jean Jackets In June
I can see you standing there

On the coldest street in the coldest town

On the oldest darkest side of the world

This state can’t keep my warmth from you

Summer flowers never come in bloom

And we’re wearing

Jean Jackets In June

Revisiting our younger selves

With the same old songs and the same old tales

Degauss these mix tapes and these photos too

Vanquish the history of you

Summer never came that afternoon

And we’re holding onto our

Jean Jackets In June

And we’re wearing our

And we’re holding onto our

Jean Jackets In June

This is the shortest summer

The windchill makes me suffer

The cold still haunts me

And I want it to last longer

This is the shortest summer

And the only thing I can offer

Is granting you warmth from the cold

It’s haunting me, it’s conjuring

It’s haunting me, it’s conjuring, it’s haunting me

There’s a bus leaving at midnight

It’s only got room left for me or you

This town won the war years ago

Let me jacket keep you warm

This is the shortest summer

Jean Jackets In June

I can still see you in daydreams

Take this for warmth from the cold

This is the shortest summer

And the only thing I remember is our

Jean Jackets In June
