Track Name: Dead Things
Dead things
Don’t want your dead things
Black and white when we once had red
Dead as the memories in my head
And since the dead can’t feel nothing
You don’t belong in my bed

Poor man
You’re such a poor man
Can’t offer more than your jewels and your gold
There ain’t one thing you ain’t sold
Most men spend their years on wisdom
But your age just made you old

Goddamn
God damn when we met
I wanted you but you just wanted a pet
A kitty to rub when your palms would sweat
I don’t beg for my treats, baby
And my treats are what you won’t forget

Cause I’m gone
You heard me: I’m gone
Gone like the life you left in the night
Gone like a dream in the light
We once had red
But now it’s all just black and white
Track Name: Where the Honey Goes
Where the honey goes (where the honey goes), the bee will follow

Mother Nature made man to be sweet
‘Cause she knows what hits a woman’s spot
And when that old girl made my man for me
She used the sweetest honey in the pot
And when my baby asks me why
I’m always by his side, well…
Where the honey goes, the bee will follow

And like that honeybee
Without my honey
I feel hollow, oh, so hollow
Where the honey goes (where the honey goes), the bee will follow

When storm clouds roll through my sky
And make the birds not want to sing
My man shines through, he turns the sky blue
And makes me open like a flower in the spring
And when my baby asks me why
I’m always by his side, well…
Where the honey goes, the bee will follow

And like that honeybee
Without my honey
I feel hollow, oh, so hollow. Buzz for me.

When nighttime comes around
My man rises like the sun
And my moon doesn’t set
Until that man’s day is done
And when my baby asks me why
I’m always by his side, well…
Where the honey goes, the bee will follow

‘Cause when my baby leaves he leaves a hole so big I’m hollow
when my baby leaves he leaves a hole so big I’m hollow
when my baby leaves he leaves a hole so big I’m hollow
Where the honey goes (where the honey goes), the bee will follow
Track Name: Adrift
We are the sons of strength

I see the mist on my windowpane
I feel the wind blow through the rain
I feel the fire in my veins
I hear those shots ring out again
Stand strong and tall with a broken spine up against the wall

I see the mist on my windowpane
I feel the wind blow through the rain
I feel the fire in my veins
I hear those shots ring out again
Do we throw our hands up against the wall and just tell them "fuck it all"
Why? Cause I won't crawl

I see the clouds roll down the street
I hear the sound of marching feet
I feel the tears burn down my cheeks
I see our history repeat
Can we truly stand the strain?
Hold my hand through the pain

Here we go to the next galaxy
Where you can be you but I can't be me
Ain't nobody gonna tell us because of our dark skin
This is the way it's supposed to be
Do we dare?
Do you care at all?
Or do you want to see us fall?
Well, I got news for you--it can't be true
Why? Cause I refuse to crawl

We are the sons of strength
We are the sons of strength
