Track Name: Holiday Season
It's hard to name the very strange directions that we go. They've rearranged the exit signs along the shady road. The river's cool the water's blue. It's shining from below. And it's open for the holiday season.

The tunnel through the mountain view is longer than it looks. I'm searching for a page count in a set of dated books. The restaurant inspector is playing poker with the cooks and the open for the holiday season.

The cold and naked vagabond is old and breaking down and living rooms in florida are sinking in the ground. I found its hard to think at times with all the beeping sounds, and now I'm dying for the holiday season.

It's hard to change the very strange directions that we go. They've rearranged the exits signs along the shady road. The river's cool the water's blue and its shining from below. It's open for the holiday season.
Track Name: Gun Control
As I came stumbling through the door I ran into her once more, like always smiling so sure, a rising tide lifted up my wounded pride just enough to catch the side of her cuff. She said you really ain't that tough without your gun.

Love is a restless and stormy night, riding through the rain in search of light. And if you know, you know that its coming you better be ready, and hold your aim steady and hope your aim's true.

'Cause when I end my restless ride I'll be there right by your side to say I'll never play with guns again for you.
