Track Name: Evil Inside Of Me
God help me, I'm in trouble
God save, I am in need
How I've walked so long and strayed so far
God, take the evil out of me.

All my loved ones, I have hurt them
All my lovers, they hurt me
And I keep moving on, but I'm not that strong
God, take the evil out of me

And oh, the church, look how that's worked out
But I guess I still call them family
I just sit and fear for the day they'll leave
When they finally see the evil inside of me.

God help me, I'm in trouble
Father save, I am in need
All I feel is your damnation, please
Are you mad at me, or the evil inside of me?

It's my fault, I admit it
I have sinned beyond my needs
But I just hide behind my fallen place
As I secretly love the evil inside of me.

It must just be the evil inside of me
God, kill the evil inside of me.
Track Name: Kate Hudson
It's lonely here, but I don't mind
I've said my prayers just to pass the time
Falling slowly, I've been casted out
In the name of exploring I've put all my faith into my doubts

It's lone here, but I'd like to stay
My only love's up and run away
Falling under, I've been through a spell
Lord I surrender, but is this Heaven or is this Hell?

It's hard to see
When you spend your whole life shining
Its hard to be
The man that overcomes
And it's harder for me
Come to think, I haven't been sleeping
Just lay awake
Waiting for the sun
I'm waiting for the sun
Track Name: Tall Man
Well I'm pretty sure I lost you
In fact the years say I have
Only God would be a fool not to love me as I am.
But I'm pretty sure I lost Him,
Or He's something I never had
So my years spent in reverence are years I won't get back.

Fallen pieces, I'm torn in two
I stand beside a man I once knew
He's a fearless man, I am terrified
He climbed up mountains, I'm scared of heights
He's a tall man, taller than I am

Ah damn, I don't wanna be damned
Ah hell, I don't wanna go to Hell

Well I'm pretty sure I lost it
The fire deep inside
My drinking and my sins
Revealed what I couldn't hide.
That's when I knew I lost You
You unforgiving God
So my words said in reverence
Are words that I have lost.

Fallen pieces, I'm torn in two
I stand beside a man I once knew
He's a fearless man, I am terrified
He climbed up mountains, I'm scared of heights
Counts his blessings, calls it love
Always forgiving, I'm always fed up
You can see his eyes, you can see how they glow
I never had it, mine's just for show
He's a tall man, taller than I am
He's a tall man, a giant beside me
A tall man, taller than I am

Ah damn, I don't wanna be damned
Ah hell, I don't wanna go to Hell

He's a tall man, taller than I am
He's a tall man, a giant beside me
A tall man, taller than I am

Ah damn, I don't wanna be damned
Ah hell, I don't wanna go to Hell
Track Name: Trying To Kill The Moon
I'm trying to kill the moon
It's out of my range, but I got strength and my aim is true
And it'll be here soon
It's gonna come down, tied and bound for you
Track Name: The Oven Bird
Rocks cry out, rocks cry out
Obey your call, relieve my doubt
I won't lift a note 'til I've heard them sing,
Join in the chorus I was promised, praise in everything

Hear me out, hear me out
What have you heard, what am I all about?
Better half of a year trying to keep myself sane
But I can't hold much longer baby, I don't have the strength.

My heart never woke
I didn't come alive with the words you spoke
But don't be dismayed
That's just the way it is.

In singing, I find it better not to sing at all
I'd rather raise my glass, tip our hats off to the Fall
So hats off to the new cause, another round for all your friends
We're not art, we're not beauty
We are the death of everything
This is love, this is the end.
Track Name: Thorns
I tried to learn to walk without this crutch,
Holding on to anything That might keep me up,
But what it'd take to move my legs was more than I could pay,
That cross won't fit unless you nail me to it, and I don't have the strength.

I wanted to be that man who washed your feet,
I wanted to move those mountains right into the sea,
But all of my gold turned into dust somewhere along the way,
Now the mess that I sit in now is the mess I've made.

I tried so hard to give you everything,
Laid myself down on your alter for you to cut away,
But the sin I claim is the sin I keep,
And too afraid of what I'd be, I crawled away,
And now I don't do much but bleed.

This is where good men die, down on their knees,
This is the line where comfort turns to complacency,
This is the thorn stuck in my side and God it made me slow,
It hurt too much to pull, so I just let it grow.
It hurt too much to pull, so I just let it grow.
