Track Name: Gods Came Down
When the gods came down from the sky
When the gods came down from the sky
And we cried
And we cried
And we cried
And we cried
When the gods came down from the sky

Will you give this ring to my wife
Will you give this ring to my wife
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Will you give this ring to my wife

Before you leave
Take these guns away from me
Before you leave
Take these guns away from me
'Cause I don’t need them anymore
Didn’t need them before

Will you stay over me where I lay
Will you stay over me where I lay
‘Till I die
‘Till I die
‘Till I die
‘Till I die
Will you stay over me where I lay

Will you work here to build a new day
Will you work here to build a new day
Will you try
Will you try
Will you try
Will you try
Will you work here to build a new day

Before you leave
Take these guns away from me
Before you leave
Take these guns away from me
'Cause I don’t need them anymore
Didn’t need them before

When the gods came down from the sky (oh, they came to inspire)
When the gods came down from the sky (ooh, but they rained on fire)
When they cried
And they cried
And they cried
And they cried
When the gods came down from the sky
When the gods came down from the sky
When the gods came down from the sky
Track Name: Dear Editor,
Oh, oh-oh...

I'm a big fan of all that you do
I'm a lifetime subscriber of you
But I needed to point out a few
Misconceptions

The attempt you had thought I had made
To manipulate and to persuade
With words I had carefully weighed
Your perceptions

I was never more honest than when
I rejected again and again
Accusations that I would defend
With exceptions

The volume increased as we strained
To purport that which we had maintained
Despite contrary proof and sustained
Interjections

Without a doubt
You're the chip on the shoulder that I carry around…oh, I wrote it down
Without a doubt
You're the chip on the shoulder that I carry around…oh, I wrote it down
Oh, without a doubt

Oh, oh-oh...

And to that which you swore was the case
And would furthermore serve to displace
And for intent and purpose erase
I resent it

Understand that it hurts to perceive
Your opinion that I'm so naive
That I'd much rather choose to believe
Than dissect it

I have mastered a very few things
And collected a very few rings
But one sport with which I engage kings
Is the written word

It is there I can easily parse
My emotions so they remain sparse
And our bout won't devolve into farce
And at last, I'm “heard”

Without a doubt
You're the chip on the shoulder that I carry around…oh, I wrote it down
Without a doubt
You're the chip on the shoulder that I carry around…oh, I wrote it down
Oh, I put it down
Oh, I worked it out
Oh, without a doubt

Oh, oh-oh...
Track Name: A Few More Miles
With a few more miles on it

With a few more miles on it
Yeah, you won’t feel a thing
Won’t recognize the pain
When it starts to beat
A mile a minute
With a few more miles on it
Yeah, you won’t feel a thing
Wrap it up in cellophane
Gotta life to lead
So get on with it

I know your heart is aching
I hear it through your shirt
Someone was bound to break it
And now it really hurts
I know just how to heal it
I’ve had my just desserts
I navigate
Whatever works

With a few more miles on it
Yeah, you won’t feel a thing
Won’t recognize the pain
When it starts to beat
A mile a minute
With a few more miles on it
Yeah, you won’t feel a thing
Wrap it up in cellophane
Gotta life to lead
So get on with it

If you build a wall around it
Numb it brick by brick
With cold and calluses
So many ways
Just take your pick

I know your heart is aching
I hear it through your shirt
Someone was bound to break it
And now it really hurts
I know just how to heal it
I’ve had my just desserts
I advocate
Whatever works

With a few more miles on it
Track Name: Fair
Stare
Waiting for answers to appear
And swear
Nothing like this has ever happened to anyone

It’s so sad
No solutions to be had

Fair
State of a common prayer
Calling it in the air
Fill out a questionnaire
And send in the coast guard
And please give my regards to fair

Care?
When’s that apology getting here?
Nowhere, that’s where we’re getting
I thought I had made myself clear

It’s so bad
Retribution’s ironclad

Fair
State of a common prayer
Calling it in the air
Fill out a questionnaire
And send in a post card
Signed, “With warm regards to fair"

Owe me
Owe you
Oh, my god
Only
If you
Can show cause

It’s so sad
Restitutions in the bag

Fair
State of a common prayer
Calling it in the air
Fill out a questionnaire
And send in the coast guard
And please give my regards to
Fair
State of a common prayer
Calling it in the air
Fill out a questionnaire
And send in a post card
Signed, “With warm regards to fair"

My regards to fair
Track Name: Saturday
It’s Saturday
It’s the only day
That I can get things done
The only day
Is Saturday
When love's on the run

Don’t they know that it’s Saturday?
It’s the only day that we can
Share before they put us away
For what we done to that man

Please close the blinds
So they think that there’s nobody home
If we must talk let us whisper
Like everyone’s gone

We'll share this day forever
It's our little day to the end
Won’t let them take you from me again

Not on Saturday

It’s Saturday
It’s the only day
That I can get things done
The only day
Is Saturday
When love's on the run

Don’t they know that it’s Saturday?
It’s the only day that we can
Share before they put us away
For what we done to that man
For what we done to that man

Please close the blinds
So they think that there’s nobody home
If we must talk let us whisper
Like everyone's gone

We'll share this day forever
It's our little day to the end
Won’t let them take you from me again

Not on Saturday
Saturday
Not Saturday
Ever again
