Track Name: Are You Ready
Are you looking for a new way to get home?
Are you looking for a way to re-forge your soul?
Walking down, looking up
Seeing the sun kiss your head makes me feel all right
Getting down, feeling up
Raising hell is what I want to do tonight

Are you ready, now?
Are you ready, yeah?
Cause I’m ready, now
I’m ready for you

Can you believe there’s nothing holding you down?
Can you give your heart a good look around?
Don’t sit, or give in
I’m not a man who lets the world make me hesitate
Get the itch, kick it in
I’m gonna steal your reasons, ah, to stay

Are you ready, now?
Are you ready, yeah?
Cause I’m ready, now
I’m ready for you

When will you see?
All you need is a reason
Step on, step right up
And I’ll show you how the queens live free
When will you see?
All your fears are nothing but dreams
Step on, step right up
And I’ll take you where you wanna be

Are you ready, now?
Are you ready, yeah?
Cause I’m ready, now
I’m ready for you
Are you ready, now?
Are you ready, yeah?
Cause I’m ready, right now
I’m ready for you

Track Name: Comeback Kid
Tied down
Held in by a chain
Clip me to your leash
And watch me run
This boy
Might be just a boy
But broken halo in hand
I’m gonna get to my point

(I’m a comeback kid)
Just you wait and see
(I’m a comeback kid)
I’m where I want to be
(I’m a comeback kid)
Don’t even count to three
(I’m a comeback kid)
I’m gonna set myself free

Blood boils
In my veins
Stoked by a fire
Burning in my heart for ages
I’m no throwback
I don’t follow anyone’s footsteps
I’m looking over their heads, and walking my own line

(I’m a comeback kid)
Just you wait and see
(I’m a comeback kid)
I’m where I want to be
(I’m a comeback kid)
Don’t even count to three
(I’m a comeback kid)
I’m gonna set myself free

I’m not the only one who’s ever doubted me
I can’t pretend I’m that good
But nobody knows how that pushes me
To break the chain and follow the fire
Out of here

(I’m a comeback kid)
Just you wait and see
(I’m a comeback kid)
I’m where I want to be
(I’m a comeback kid)
Don’t even count to three
(I’m a comeback kid)
I’m gonna set myself free

Track Name: Frankly
This room
Is kinda crowded
And there’s a rock on my chest
I know everyone is feeling
A little bit crowded at best
So let the spitballs fly

And frankly
I don’t give a damn
Who I might offend
Frankly
I don’t really care
So cover your ears while I clear the air

Elephants
Don’t take ill offense
They just take up your space
So stand up, no nonsense
Come on, show em who you really are
Cause if you don’t then I will, baby

And frankly
I don’t give a damn
Who I might offend
Frankly
I don’t really care
So cover your ears while I clear the air

Track Name: Three Feet From Gold
I’ve been tried
And I’ve been bested
Now I’m in your ditch
Left for dead
I can see the sky
Hanging over my head
Lord knows I don’t need no witness

I could be three feet from gold
I won’t know till the dirt has spoke
Hold on to hope like white smoke
Three feet from gold

My hole is half full
And my head is pounding
Is it rain or tears I’m standing in?
I’ll know by morning
Could I give this up for good?
Leave my pickaxe in the dirt
No, I don’t think so
No, I don’t think so

I could be three feet from gold
I won’t know till the dirt has spoke
Hold on to hope like white smoke
Three feet from gold

I could be three feet from gold
I won’t know till the dirt has spoke
Hold on to hope like white smoke
Three feet from gold
And I won’t know till I’ve seen the bottom

Track Name: Coming Home
Got me a seat
Sits about a mile high
30,000 feet
Straight through the sky
I been away too long
It’s time to get a move on
Open the front door, momma
Lord, I’m coming home

Grew up thinking
When I was young
I’d never miss the things
That would be gone
If I left
This place
My heart wouldn’t ever break
Well, I was wrong
I gotta get back home

I’m gonna get on that plane
I’m gonna get in my car
I’m gonna jump on that train
I’m gonna take it real far
Till I’m gone
Lord I’m coming home

City skylights
They look so cold
Nothing like the streets
From where I was born
I left
That place
Now I was wanna stand in the space
And see the sky
Or I’m gonna die

I’m gonna get on that plane
I’m gonna get in my car
I’m gonna jump on that train
I’m gonna take it real far
Till I’m gone
Lord I’m coming home

Track Name: The Man
Some freedom lies
Some dreams die before they’re born
Some people change
But those above won’t while there’s someone else to blame

Don’t let it getcha
Don’t let em find ya
Trapped under powers knee

Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
No way, uh uh, I say
Stick it to the man

These monuments rise
Towering high above our heads
Spread the hate
Nobody cares, just need someone with a pretty face

Don’t let it getcha
Don’t let em find ya
Believing what you hear

Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
No way, uh uh, I say
Stick it to ‘em

Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
Are you gonna let the man keep you down?
No way, uh uh, I say
No way, uh uh, I say oh lord
No way, uh uh, I say
Stick it to ‘em

Track Name: Devil In My City
I live on the soul sucking streets
It’s hard to stay on my feet
Streetlights shine down
Broken bottles on the ground
Just like my dreams

Love is a boldfaced liar
Runaround makes me tired
These blocks feel like miles
My heart lost its smiles
Somewhere in this place

I
I can’t take this
Any more
The devils in my city now
The devils in my city now

At the end of the day
I lay down, too tired to pray
Sleeps still going strong
Left me all alone
Tired and awake

Hope is like a star
But it’s too bright to see it in the dark
Could this city shut it’s eyes
Long enough to realize
It’s killing me

I heard
Hold on
Hold on for me
I know I heard her say
Hold on
Hold on for me

I
I can’t take this
Any more
The devils in my city now
The devils in my city now

Track Name: Got Me Running
Every day
I learn a new way
To keep myself from going down the drain
And I
Don’t wanna do it no more

Red, black and blue
Their stars slap my face
Those backstabbers try to take my place

I said you got me running
But I’ll run all over you
I said you got me running
But I’ll run all over you

Wake up in the morning
Red letter should be coming
Change is screaming in a tired rage
And I
Can’t take it no more
And I
Can’t take it no more

Red, black and blue
Their stars slap my face
Those backstabbers love chasing me away

I said you got me running
But I’ll run all over you
I said you got me running
But I’ll run all over you
