Lyrics


Cowboy Jordan

So you're leavin’

I was hoping you could stick around

You're receivin’

But communication’s breaking down

There's a reason

That you came to our town

There's a new glow

Illuminating from the ground

So it’ll take you a while to get back home

(I know you will find)

Too many hills to climb

(Find your space in time)

Tried to show you things

Things to change your mind

(Have we closed the door?)

Could've learned

You could’ve learned so much more

So your leavin’

That's a long way home

We're believin’

In thoughts that might not be our own

Is it too soon?

Or have we gone too far?

Wrapped your lasso

Around a spec of dust between the stars

So it’ll take me a while to get back home

(I know you will find)

Too many hills to climb

(Find your space in time)

Tried to show you things

Things to change your mind

(Have we closed the door?)

You could've learned

You could’ve learned so much (more)


THe road

Rig packed up ready to ride

Twenty-thousand miles ‘cross the country side

It might not be pretty, but it won’t be dull

The moments you create will define your soul

Our nine-to-five is our late night drive

Just a few more hours ‘til we rest our eyes

You won't fly if you never try

Don't sit back and watch the clock as your dreams go by

I'm sorry mama but it's time to go

You'll hear my voice again on the radio

Well I ain't got money but I got my guitar

And just enough gas to make it to the next bar

I'm sorry baby but it's time to leave

To live the life you've got to see to believe

Struggling just to stay alive

‘Cause the road only lets us go sixty-five

You've got money

But you ain't got no wealth

Your pain is a rain that you brought on yourself

Venue lied and we never got paid

But you should've seen their faces when we got on the stage

Long nights, long days

One foot in the saddle and one foot in the grave

Do what you love, don't hear what they say

You've got to make your life your own way

I'm sorry mama but it's time to go

You'll hear my voice again on the radio

Well I ain't got money but I got my guitar

And just enough gas to make it to the next bar

I'm sorry baby but it's time to leave

To live the life you've got to see to believe

Struggling just to stay alive

‘Cause the road only lets us go sixty-five

I'm sorry mama but it's time to go

You'll hear my voice again on the radio

Well I ain't got money but I got my guitar

And just enough gas to make it to the next bar

I'm sorry baby but it's time to leave

To live the life you've got to see to believe

Struggling just to stay alive

‘Cause the road only lets us go sixty-five


My Own Hell

Moonlight shines

Through the darkest sky

Sunrise

Comes with a piece of mind

Tongue-tied

You answer selfish lies

Truth be told

Stop wasting precious time

I keep telling myself

The same thing I hear from someone else

Why can't I just convince myself

I must be the devil in my own hell

Teardrops fall

On forsaken ground

The answer's there

But cannot be found

Fighting through

All the smoke and mirrors

Close your eyes, yea

You'll see much clearer

I keep telling myself

The same thing I hear from someone else

Why can't I just convince myself

I must be the devil in my own hell

I keep telling myself

The same thing I hear from someone else

Why can't I just convince myself

I must be the devil in my own hell


Forbidden Fruit

I remember when you used to talk to me, Now I just talk to machines

And they talk back to me

I just stare into the screen of light

And I think that we're alike

My patience is about as long as my fingernails...and I bite them

And there's an itch I can't scratch

These urges...are causing surges in my mind

I just think that everyone should see

How happy I can be

Take a bite of the bad apple

Take a bite of the forbidden fruit

Take a bite of the bad apple

One last bite of the forbidden fruit

Look in my eyes and see what your missin’

We're letting you fly but blinding you vision

Head in the sand but say that you listen

We got you hooked cause we all went fishin’

I think I'll have to call a rain check...again but we're still friends

At least I hope so...

Looks like I'm all tied up

I go where the ropes go

I just stand like I'm waiting in line

To trade my...brain for one smarter than mine

To trade my brain for one smarter than my own

Brain for one smarter than my own

Brain for one smarter than my own

Brain for one smarter than my own

Brain for one smarter than my own


Booty for Days

Ooh, Aah

Ooh, Aah

Girl, got booty for days

Booty for days

Booty for days

Girl, got booty for days

Booty for days

Booty for days

You could change the whole game with a booty like that

Put J-Lo to shame with a booty so fat

Shit, I don't even know how to act

So I'll keep throwing you curve balls 'til your throwing 'em back

Knowing that, girl you the definition of stacked

Fully aware of what you got and you ain't holdin it back

I need some air, before that body makes me collapse

With all that booty it's your duty shake that beautiful ass

You know what you're tryin’ to do to me

You try to call me your boo baby

You know there's only one thing I want to do to you, yea

And I ain't tryin’ to be cruel, no

I see you walkin’ I hear you talkin’

You know I wanna give you somethin’

I realize there's nothin’ I can do, no no

Girl, got booty for days

Booty for days

Booty for days

Girl, got booty for days

Booty for days

Booty for days

Damn baby girl you just blessed the room

I'm so impressed with your breasts and your sexy perfume

But when you turn around you leave my me fully consumed

It's a barrier-breaking booty, you're the sonic BOOM!

Way too hot, you about to burn off them clothes

Bringing traffic to a halt just by touchin’ them toes

King Midas musta spanked you ‘cause that ass turned to gold

Worth it’s weight but you ain't gonna let it be sold

Girl, you know what I'm talkin’ about

The way you move your hips all around

You know I just can't help to stare

And girl you know I just can't share

I want you all to myself

Say oh!

Girl, got booty for days

Booty for days

Booty for days

Girl, got booty for days

Booty for days

Booty for days


Gravity

There's no price tag if you sell your soul

No receipt when the bell tolls

Nothing better than a perfect hand

But it'll put you six feet under the sand

Expectation’s destination is to turn you down

Then you'll finally to learn to face it when you turn around

It's hard to make it when your bridges are burning down

The gravity is all around

I look around and see what we have become

We separate ourselves though we should be one

This is the dawn and we are the sun

We’ll rise when we're all one

It's hard to feel the world spinning so free

We look up to the skies and think what could be

Instead of here and now and yesterday

It's passing by...

Think we’d know by now

Have two cents about

What would come around

Once we hit the ground

There's no price tag if you sell your soul

No receipt when the bell tolls

Nothing better than a perfect hand

But it'll put you six feet under the sand

Expectation’s destination is to turn you down

Then you'll finally to learn to face it when you turn around

It's hard to make it when your bridges are burning down

The gravity is all around

You say what's right or wrong, don't bat an eye

If ignorance is bliss, go show them why

If this is destiny, then swallow your pride

While there's still time..

Some say that there's nothing to fear

These patterns of history are never clear

Can't shake this off like everything else

Only judge yourself..

I can hear you say

Seems so far away

Can't stay on your feet

Without gravity

Think we’d know by now

Have two cents about

What would come around

Once we hit the ground

I can hear you say

Seems so far away

Can't stay on your feet

Without gravity


Clarity

Sittin’ here flyin’ on the ground

What is up and what is down?

Tryin’ to find reality

So glad you're flyin’ next to me

Swimmin’ in a sea of tranquility

Floatin’ right here next to me

See the sound no one can see

Believe our world was meant to be

Tryin’ to find some…

Clarity, yea

Clarity, yea

Clarity, yea

Clarity, yea

Tryin’ to find a sign

(Floating through time)

Makin’ up my mind

(Floating through time)

Tryin’ to find a sign

(Floating through time)

Makin’ up my mind

(Floating through time)

(Floating through time)

(Floating through time)

(Floating through time)

Standin’ on the edge as I'm ready to fly

Lookin’ down from the top

I'll meet you by the riverside

Livin’ life as a dream starin’ into the sun

Is it the end of all time?

Or has it just begun?

Standin’ on the edge as I'm ready to fly

Lookin’ down from the top

I'll meet you by the riverside

Livin’ life as a dream starin’ into the sun

Is it the end of all time?

Or has it just begun?


Queen Bee

Better not make a rise

Better not try to fly away

Even if you try...

You'll be back in a day

But you left the pack,

There's no coming back

Better not make a scene

Better work as a team

It's not as hard as it seems

'Cause it's an operation

All work, no waitin’

And whatever comes stays in

‘Cause she's a queen bee

She don't care about the hive

Only cares about the jive

Until she gets that honey

Queen bee

She don't care if you're alive

Only cares if you survive

Until she gets that honey

Queen bee

She don't care about the hive

Only cares about the jive

Until she gets that sweet thing

Not enough room to breathe

Just enough room to breed

Because the more she receives

The happier she is...

Now that she has your kids

She’ll be more productive

So you make sure that happens

‘Cause it's her way, or it’s your last day

And that means the last one

‘Cause she's a queen bee

She don't care about the hive

Only cares about the jive

Until she gets that honey

Queen bee

She don't care if you're alive

Only cares if you survive

Until she gets that honey

Queen bee

She don't care about the hive

Only cares about the jive

Until she gets that sweet thing

If you only knew

That she has eyes on every corner

What are we to do?

We could find a place but she is always gonna find us

This is how it is

It's how it's always been so who am I to be complaining?

Need to find a way

To feel the sun ‘cause when it shines it still feels like it's raining

She's a queen bee

She don't care about the hive

Only cares about that jive

To get that honey

She don't care if you're alive

But we'll survive

She's a queen bee

And the honey is yours

She's a queen bee

And the honey is gone


The Overgrowth

It’s hard to break the habits that we make

Easy to make a promise that you’ll break

These twisted vines amidst our minds are overgrown

They climb the walls and crack the stone

The darkness that lives between the light

Those voices that whisper in the night

These twisted vines amidst our minds are overgrown

They climb the walls and take the thrown


Before You Settle Down

It might be a while until I come around

I never woulda climbed so high if I knew I had to come down

Right now I need to see inside myself before I even make a sound

Sometimes you gotta settle up before you settle down

Before you settle down

Don't go and losin’ what you found

Before you break it off you better break it down

‘cause you'll feel the weight around

A heart's so heavy, breaks like a levee

And it's floodin' now

I need to see inside of me

I see way too much judgement in society

So just fly with me

I can hold you, just like I told you

But it might be a while until I come around

I never woulda climbed so high if I knew I had to come down

Right now I need to see inside myself before I even make a sound

Sometimes you gotta settle up before you settle down

Before you settle down

I need to find some better ground

Feels like I'm naked in the middle of my town

And I feel the weight around

A heart's so heavy, why'd I have to let it hit the ground?

Wondering if it's the end, or will you let me shed my skin and start again?

How many letters do I have to send?

I'll be the sail that always fails without the wind

I can't justify my actions

I can only try to make it right

I won't hide behind distractions

If we can just make it through the night

This time words won't fix the problem

I'm learning how to read between the lines

I won't wait until our love's gone

But I know it's gonna take some time

‘Cause it might be a while until I come around

I never woulda climbed so high if I knew I had to come down

Right now I need to see inside myself before I even make a sound

Sometimes you gotta settle up before you settle down

Before you settle down


The Way

Forget the stories you were told

There’s no such thing as tomorrow

Who knows what the future has to hold

Don't let it borrow from today

Relax your mind

Breath in and find

You are alive

That is the prize

If you should find yourself alone

Reduced to worry, fear, and hate

Remember, you were always home

Your destination is the way

Relax your mind

Breath in and find

You are alive

And that is the prize
