Higher Power 03:02
Gone But I don’t know where I’ve been I guess I’m wrong But I don’t see the point in Dodging truth It is not my business Just for you I am not forgiven Every day The world slipped away And you were gonna live inside that fire? A moment of change Eclipsed the rage And you were gonna thank a higher power? Down In the Western Indies Runnin’ round I don’t feel your pity Dodging you Was the best decision Follow truth It’ll lead you from Him Every day The world slipped away And you were gonna live inside that fire? A moment of change Eclipsed the rage And you were gonna thank a higher power?

I think that I could never know if I could write or sing a song again I want to try it and i want someone to buy it but I don’t know when I’m on a plane, flying Italy or Spain, I don’t really know But where we are I know it’s never really far from another home I can’t see, I can’t hear nothin’ Maybe I’m coming down with somethin’ But it’s okay cuz I’m not running This has been a long time comin I don’t know how to say it and I don’t know how to play it but it’s there I look around and see a populating town that wants to strip me bare I’m running out of cash and I don’t have a secret stash to keep me fine So maybe I should find another way to have a little peace of mind Cuz I can’t see, I can’t hear nothin’ Maybe I’m coming down with somethin’ But it’s okay cuz I’m not running This has been a long time comin Look around and they all see me Everybody wants to be me Cuz I’m not coming down with somethin’ This has been a long time comin I’m not coming down with somethin’ This has been a long time comin I can’t see nothin’ through my little old eye socket And I can’t hear nothin’ through my little old ear pocket

If you don’t wanna change your mind Then why’re you thinking all the time? You’re afraid of what’s inside you If you don’t wanna stay at home Then why’d you get a degree staying with your mum You don’t want to walk away from
 What you know and where your heart’s from But if you think it’s not a problem Then you should see the light Oh open up your eyes 
If you can drive, then why don’t you drive? If you can make it one more day, then you’ll survive
 If you can fly, then why don’t you fly? 
If you can fly, then why don’t you fly high? If you don’t wanna run away Then why’re you always on the look for places to stay You can’t deal with your issues So maybe you should skip town Get a ticket for a Massachusetts-set Greyhound You don’t need to do it alone Can’t some people be your real home? Or are you too stuck in your smartphone That you can’t see the light Oh, open up your eyes 
If you can drive, then why don’t you drive? If you can make it one more day, then you’ll survive 
If you can fly, then why don’t you fly? 
If you can fly, then why don’t you fly high?

I don't sleep Cause all my worst fears come out at night  And I don't know why I peaked  And I don't even want to try no more  Walking out the door again But I don't want to make new friends That's life, we'll pick it up again Waiting at the door my friend Waiting to cross paths Pacing round the floor again I keep on losing track Of my thoughts, they go Round and round in circles  I don't eat Because my stomach’s bloated from the beer And I want to get more downtown At any place that’s open at 3am And we'll do it all again I gotta get up But my head is gonna explode Here we go Laying on the floor again  Looking at the wall Play another chord again I keep on losing track On my thoughts, they go Round and round in circles Round and round in circles Round and round and My thoughts, they go Round and round and My thoughts, they go Round and round and My thoughts, they go Round and round and My thoughts, they go Round and round and

The Races 03:30
Goin’ to the races The places and the spaces Are filling up with friends of me People like to waste my time Getting outta TN And headed up to Boston And now I’m gonna lose my mind Feelin’ like I’m wasting time Everybody wants to do me bad Party on the weekend I’m trying not to sleep in I wanna wake and lose my mind Everybody’s wasting time Goin’ to my house And tryin’ to find out If I am gonna do my time Wishin’ I wasting time Everybody wants to do me bad And everybody wants to drive me mad What I want is what I had Driving in my car and Going pretty far to Places I would never drive Maybe I am wasting time Going all the way To the Empire State And oh, I didn’t think I’d find A better way to waste my time Everybody wants to do me bad And everybody wants to drive me mad What I want is what I had

3:15 AM 03:26
Talking to the morning people calling me But I got nothing to say Talking in my sleep and now I’m down the sink
 Instead of walking away Keepin’ up with the daydreams in my fantasies I’m walking into a thrill Going down to the ocean in a submarine I am chasing it still Why am I up right now? Wide awake somehow It’s three in the morning It’s three in the morning Riding out on a sine wave into outer space I’m jumping into a sound And there ain’t nothing you can do to steer me clear I’m walking into a cloud Why am I up right now? Wide awake somehow It’s three in the morning It’s three in the morning

I am over me You won’t let this be I can’t work for free, ain’t that something? Keep me in the loop I got work to do Empty in the room, and I see nothing Put me out of it If you haven’t yet I am hard to get, ain’t that something? Talk about the sky You’re afraid to fly I’m afraid to die, cuz I see nothing Back to Winchester Back to November Boston weather, ain’t that something? Chilly in the cold Cannot feel my nose Eyes are frozen closed, and I see nothing I am over me You won’t let this be I can’t work for free, ain’t that something? Keep me in the loop I got work to do Empty in the room, and I see nothing

Mirror 02:11
I don't know myself any better Than I used to, but I used to And I guess I saw myself a little thinner But then I saw myself in a mirror Then I saw myself in a mirror Oh, you gotta slow your roll It's not good for you And if you take it slower than you're used to Then you'll move to A new shoe for you It's helped me, too Cuz I don't know myself any better Than I used to, but I used to And I guess I saw myself a little thinner But then I saw myself in a mirror Then I saw myself in a mirror Oh, what is the meaning of this holy arrest? And why did you take it so much harder than the rest That you're not the best? Is that such a mess? Forgive and forget I don't know myself any better Than I used to, but I used to And I guess I saw myself a little thinner But then I saw myself in a mirror Then I saw myself in a mirror Then I saw myself in a mirror Then I saw myself in a mirror

Holiday Road 03:45
He lost his keys and I can’t find my wallet and we’re looking for a place to go We left the apartment and we hopped in the Echo and we drove down the Tennessee road We drove past a Statey and we’re doin’ over eighty and we’re driving off in our own heads We looked to the moon and we said pretty soon that we shoulda stayed home instead Holiday road We drove past Levi’s, he was sitting on his porch with a broken wood shovel Holiday road We don’t know why he’s getting out the car but he’s puking on the side of the road Fourteen miles till we’re running out of gas and we gotta pull over soon He pulled out his wallet even though he forgot it and we didn’t know what to do We pulled out the station and I had no explanation when I said “let’s turn around” But then we forgot it as I put back my wallet and we started coming down on the Holiday road We drove past Levi’s, he was sitting on his porch with a broken wood shovel Holiday road We don’t know why he’s getting out the car but he’s puking on the side of the road We drove to the lake and we thought we’d take a break cuz we thought we were losing our minds But then we saw the black car and we were out too far to try and escape tonight So we kicked it into double cuz we knew we saw trouble and we said “we gotta go!” 
But it’s all okay, cuz you know what they say "It’s all about the holiday road" Holiday road We drove past Levi’s, he was sitting on his porch with a broken wood shovel Holiday road We don’t know why he’s getting out the car but he’s puking on the side of the road

about

WARNING: Please enter at your own risk. This park hosts a selection of unmaintained hiking trails that may lead to unstable climates and terrain. If you choose to proceed, bring enough food and water for the expedition to and from your destination, and be sure to pack items securely if camping. The mutant cows have a particularly sensitive sense of smell and are extremely strong, so if they do approach you or your camp, it is not wise to challenge them. Due to its unique position in Guyamar, this park features a variety of landscapes including lush forests, snowy peaks, and dry deserts. It can be easy to get lost, so we recommend that inexperienced park explorers stay on the paved roads to enjoy the natural scenery that Free Rock has to offer. Drivers, make sure your Park Badge is present on the dashboard at all times. If you're hiking, remove the film backing from the underside of the patch and place it in a highly visible location on your person. We thank you for visiting our humble corner of the continent, so explore responsibly! And remember: In Free Rock We Trust.
