Track Name: The Apprehensive Carpenter (Live)
The Apprehensive Carpenter

Today, I’m going to get out this chair and build us that bed.
I’ve been looking at that wood for years waiting to begin.
It never seems to build it self no matter how hard I stare.
Today, I’m going to get out this chair and build us that bed.

Today, I’m going to grab my saw and make the first cut.
I know what I’m doing at least I’d like to think that much.
I’ve been to school, read the books, and practiced with my Pa.
Today, I’m going to grab my saw and make the first cut.

Today, I’m going to surprise myself.
Follow through with what I’d promised I’d do.
Oh why have I been fighting with myself?
I ain’t getting any hunger and losing that hunger.
This pressure I’m under is no wonder I’m building it for you.

Today, I’m going to get out this chair and build that bed for you.

But, I can’t do it by myself. I understand I need your help.
Failures got me overwhelmed and kept my tools on the shelf.
Promise me if this goes to hell you will stay with me.
I promise you that if I fail I will try again
Because, I want this as much for me as I do for you.

Today, I’m going to get over myself and build us that bed.
I’ve been dreaming about it for years since the first day we meet.
And, in that bed will make love and start our family.
Today, I’m going to build us that bed and get over me.
Track Name: Drawing Dead (Live)
Drawing Dead

Nervous as a father cocky as a son
A hundred dollar bill on the table my game is 21
Swing like a seesaw back and forth my conscious prays
For the next time that I get I will walk away, from here

Oh, stop everyone I am drawing dead and
I can’t stop myself
I need to slow down and wake up because
I’m digging my own grave
With every card I take is the deeper and the deeper I get
I’m drawing dead

Whisky on the rocks chase with Jack and Coke
I can’t drink them fast enough to erase the fact your gone
So, I smoke another cigarette anything for luck
But I know the only way to beat the house is to never sit down

Oh, stop everyone I am drawing dead and
I can’t stop myself
I need to slow down and wake up because
I’m digging my own grave
With every card I take is the deeper and the deeper I get
I’m drawing dead

It’s all because of you
That I try and I try and I try to buy my happiness
Just like you the cards I can’t predict
One minute you’re here and the next one you’re gone and
I don’t know what to believe

Oh, stop everyone I am drawing dead and
I can’t stop myself
I need to slow down and wake up because
I’m digging my own grave
With every card I take is the deeper and the deeper I get
I’m drawing dead
