Track Name: Momma Said
Momma said don't go around chasing demons
Because they are the ones
Who always drag you down, down to hell
Momma said don't go around chasing demons
Because she wants to be the one who drags you down

Momma, you've had a rough year
But I will lend you an ear

Now Momma said don't go around chasing Jesus
Because he is the one
Who always let's you down
Momma said don't go around chasing Jesus
Because she wants to be the one who lets you down

Momma, you've had a rough year
But I will lend you an ear
Oooh, oooh, ladadadadaa

Momma, I swear I won't go chasing either
Because you've been the one
Who's always let me down
Momma, I swear I won't go chasing either
Because I wouldn't want to ever let you down
Track Name: Liquid Nitrogen
Well, I...
I finally learned to sing in a key besides "E"
'Cause you've left me freezing
But I don't want to be on my own, all alone

But I will not make a point
To make you, to make you freeze
Like you freeze me
You're liquid nitrogen
I won't move till you say when
But I will not make a point
To make you...

Well, I hope she is what you wanted from me
You replaced your key of "C", wait that's me
And it's left me freezing
But I don't want to be on my own, all alone

But I will not make a point
To make you, to make you freeze
Like you freeze me
You're liquid nitrogen
I won't move till you say when
But I will not make a point
To make you, to make you freeze

Oh boy you'll freeze
Oh boy you'll freeze
Right where you are
Freeze, oh boy you'll freeze
Oh boy you'll freeze
Right where you are

Whoa and don't come around and say
That you sailed the frozen seas
To be with me and all you are
And don't come around and say
That you sailed the frozen seas
To be with me me
'Cause all you do is just for you

Oh boy you'll freeze
Oh boy you'll freeze
Right where you are
Track Name: Words You Say
Oh Momma, I've been cryin'
But every time you go
And lay your head down
Your sleep, it will not come easily
And just know when you lay your head down
That those dreams, they're not what they seem

Oh Momma, I've been cryin' every single day
But you don't have to say
That you love me
They're just words you say
But every time you go
How it breaks my heart to know
They're words you say

Ooh, ooh, words you say
Ooh, ooh, words you say

And I know when you lay your head down
That your sleep will not come easily
And just know when you lay your head down
That those dreams, well they're not what they seem

Oh Momma, I've been cryin' every single day
But you don't have to say
That you love me
They're just words you say
But every time you go
How it breaks my heart to know
They're words you say

Ooh, ooh, words you say
Ooh, ooh, words you say
Ooh, ooh, words you say
Momma, I've been cryin'
Track Name: When a Gun Goes Off
It's not fair to you that I can't be
As in love with you as you are with me
So take back this ring, I can't wear it anymore
I finally slept through the night, I threw it on the floor

I got your call on my answering machine
You sounded at peace, if I could only have seen
You sitting alone, drinking in the dark
Saying your goodbye to your broken heart

Your momma found you in the morning
Your heart shot clean out
By a gun you kept to keep the bad things out
I never did think that you could take things this far
To ease that pain that I caused in your heart

But when a gun goes off
And there's no one around
Does it make a sound?
Well, are you listening now?
When a gun goes off
And there's no one here
You may not hear the sound
But it will resonate all of your years, all of your years

It's been a few years now since you've been gone
And my mind's stopped racing long enough to put it in a song
Your memory, it chills and it haunts me
You ended you pain, it's come full circle to me

But when a gun goes off
And there's no one around
Does it make a sound?
Well, are you listening now?
When a gun goes off
And there's no one here
You may not hear the sound
But it will resonate all of your years, all of your years
This will resonate all of my years
Track Name: The Wolves
The wolves, they came in to my life just like a song
Howling notes and words my soul had never ever known
But I don't know what I don't know

But I don't have a clue
What's been going on
Keeps me from love you
But I don't have the right
And you don't have the right

The wolves, they feast upon my skin, my hair, my clothes
Ripping what we've got to pieces, they never stop or slow
But they don't know what they don't know

But I don't have a clue
What's been going on
Keeps me from love you
But I don't have the right
And you don't have the right
