Track Name: She Was Just a Child
She was just a child when she took her arms and squeezed tightly the life that she had labored for
Hours and hours of discourse
Days turned to weeks, weeks to months to years
She's out the door

What she left behind
Had two eyes, father's lies
I think it was a boy
He grew up into a young man who believed he was not worth looking for

So full of anger so full of strife
Alone, confused, and scared in all shapes and types
He was just a child when he learned
That love's not to be expected, no!
Love must be spoken first

The devil has done his work
Will you succumb to this or be free like a bird?
My son would do well to learn
Love's not that simple especially not for God's people
Track Name: Stairs
Under the stairs
Where I can hold your hand
And I can be your man

Outside your room
I see your new sun dress
And you take away my breath
Today

Again I'm stuck inside of your mirror
I know exactly how it is I feel

Under the stairs
You pull my hair
When we kiss

Under the clouds
The stars dance with the moon
And your love can't come too soon

Outside your room
Again I see your dress
And you take away my breath again

Again I'm stuck inside of your mirror
I know exactly how it is I feel

Under the stairs
You pull my hair
When we kiss
Under the stairs
You pull my hair
When we kiss
Track Name: Compton (We Are Just Kids)
Growin up in the city
Always being bored
Parents always busy
We're constantly ignored

We are just kids!!!!!

We saw the biggest color TV in our lives
We thought that all the characters were alive
Track Name: Cross the Mason Dixie
You know I miss you but everybody knows about that
You can't discover what you already know
How long would it take to cross the Mason Dixie
Even though it's only halfway from home
I know I'd make it if my feet are kicking towards the city that was government owned
I could not translate all the words I'm thinking
You know I'm not good with those

We're breaking, oh my God!
Breaking, oh my God!
We are breaking, oh my God!

And then the fear came and kicked my two front teeth right out of my mouth and they haven't grown back since
In the middle of my silly broken sentence you stared at me with a bright blue glare
Like a child who speaks the most honest language
The truth is neither ugly nor fair
You said if I loved you here
Then I love you there

We're breaking, oh my God!
Breaking, oh my God!
We are breaking, oh my God!

And what caused it to shatter the ground upon which we stand
And what would it take to cause it from yearning
How it wishes not to break

We're breaking, oh my God!
Breaking, oh my God!
We are breaking, oh my God!

You know I miss you but everybody knows about that
You can't discover what you already know
How long would it take to cross the Mason Dixie
Even though it's only halfway from home
Track Name: The Rusty Tumbleweed
All she said was no
It was all that I needed
Ready to go
I misplaced my trust
in all that was fleeting
but seemingly just

As I turned to run
I tripped on a feeling
And fell in the mud
I returned to dust
With writhing and bleeding
to water and rust

I'd already died
My soul was the repeating
The same old melody

I should have listened when he said
"Cast not your pearls before the swine"
But had I listened I'd be living in an ordinary lie
And now the thing that's got me leaving is the one that held me back before

It is that all this world is fleeting
fill with moth and rust and lies
but you never really see me
'cause I had on the disguise
Of innocence and oblivion
But you know me better than that

All she said was no
It was all that i needed
Ready to go
Track Name: Walla Walla
They came from the trees to tell the leaves to dance
They came from the stars to talk about romance
They came to the town clapping all the hands
They yelled at the top of their lungs with the band

He wore a disguise to see if he could fly
The birds in teh trees could see everything
They laughed with themselves as he clearly fell
He stood up again and cursed them all to hell

They came from the trees to tell the leaves to dance
They came from the stars to talk about romance
They came to the town clapping all the hands
They yelled at the top of their lungs with the band
