Track Name: Walkabout Annie
Walkabout Annie was a messed up girl
And when she met Ronny she gave him the world
Her heart turned black as the ace of spades
He took it to the city and gambled it away

Walkabout Annie fell for another
touched her skin took him as a lover
Ronny came home drunk one night
He found them in bed wrapped up so tight.

Can I come home?
I need some shelter, But nobody heard her
She's all alone, In a body of winter
with no one to hold

Change came around before too long
Walkabout Annie packed up and moved on
Mouth open….Eyes closed
Walkabout Annie just stared at her toes
Track Name: My Greatest Fear
talked with you just today
in that old familiar way
we're at that point once again
is this the beginning, or the end?

our words fade into blue

sometimes, I seem to disappear
gone without a trace
to feel i have no purpose
is my greatest fear….. my greatest fear

sometimes, my ship i cannot steer
and i have lost my way
to feel so insignificant
is my greatest fear

vesseled heart, slowly sinking
sunset eyes begin to fill
memories fade like a drunkard drinking
release it all and be still
Track Name: The Way Of The Gun
Kissed his bride so tenderly
Wiped her tears with his handkerchief
Held her hand and whispered of his love
Told his son 'you're the man of the house'
Turned his horse and headed out
Lived his life by the way of the gun.

He knew today could be his last
As he Went for his gun and his life went past
Laying there with his killer looking down. 
The lives  he took the loves he lost
For blood and lust he paid the cost
The show is done now bring them curtains down

You left a trail of dead across this land
You'll never wash that blood from your hands

He prayed forgiveness but he choked
The blood gurgling in his throat
Death be comin to take him away
Lungs fill with dust and blood
Life it pours into the mud
Debt of sin, hes got no gold to pay 

Young man prays lord turn your ear
God Said son you ain't welcome here
Best you turn around, be on your way
Well he rolled the dice with every shot
And that bastard deserved the death he got
When gambling your  soul the devil wins. 
The devil always wins

Tell my boy to be a better man
The way of the gun is the way of the damned
Track Name: Cover Me
Is the purpose of the heart to be broken?
What lies behind the words left unspoken
its the patchwork of fractured loves, haunting me
you're the needle and the thread that made me complete

oh, i need you so
wont you cover me
come on and cover me
yeah you cover em

my crippled heart, sits in disrepair
the sins of my past, not your cross to bear
unravel my pain. take my agony
bring me release, you get the best out of me
