Track Name: Charlatan
Got a lucky star now you're bound to earn big, you're earnin big baby
You're hooked on a winning streak, well like a king i'll live now
My hearts are heavy cos the queen she won't show no
I got the aces waiting up my sleeve though

She says just read them
Then weep to me
I say you're a cruel mama darlin won't set you won't set me free

And I got the devil, she's sitting across from me
She's got her hooves out but now we're playing footsie
The Joker and the Jack, her left and right hand man
I've got a little hope, but i'mma do what I can (tonight)

She says just read them
Then weep to me
I say you're a cruel mama darlin won't set you won't set me free

* * * * * * * *
Well, well, well
What do I have before me?
I'm observing something very peculiar
Is that how you try and woo a woman?
Keep searching those pockets baby

* * * * * * * *

But now i'm weeping, she's taken it all from me
I say you're a cruel mama darlin won't set, you won't set
You're the cruelest mama darlin' won't set, you won't set
You're the cruelest mama darlin' won't set, you won't set me free
Track Name: Heart of Stone
I’m a hard man humbled there’s a weight to your stare, I gave it up you said you didn’t care
From daylight to dark light through twilight hour I can feel it now when you steal the power
You call me a burn out cus I only glow, but I was a fire raging some years ago
Have thick skin to take it you’ll lay me out and cut me short like a silent shout

The growing fear you’ll see through my skin see lingering smoke, turn my lights dim
You’ll tattle tales of the good feeling, ill keep this heart that I’ve been heaving
Cus these words they stand in our way, I tried to find the truth but my mind won’t let me
So ill be a myth maker, find fake things and then ill face ya

By now you’re bound to see another side another part to this life
Under the midnight sun that’s where we used to run
I shouted out in the half-light but my voice didn’t carry out to you
Melt me down and make me be the man you’re asking of
You're asking of me

I’ve got a heart of stone without you by my side
And now I’m all alone

Ohhhh...
Track Name: Real Boys
Take your time, and live for potential
That’s where you went to
You're starting to crave- all the old days machines now do what it is that the real boys used to
And time you get so greedy been stealing memories I'd rather keep them deep down inside of me
When your feelings are frozen and tied to deceit, I never felt nothing no, when the good lord left me

Now you're dying for a deadline the hard thing to hold
Get in line to do what you're told
The policy maker- discriminator you can see the lies climbing from their eyes
But i'll still stand and fight my ground you better know I wont back down
Ya i'll still stand and fight my ground you better know I wont back

And we’ll rumble the streets
We're searching for the door to before
We got old generations dreams
We got old generations dreams
Track Name: HOAW
I’ll only take half of a whole you know I like to keep control but
I wanna do it right
It’s only been an hour or two but now Im chasing you cus
You didn’t tell me what this little thing would do

I spoke to my brain he said that I made you blush
Been living it up up of the gold rush
Startin' of steady now, we’ll head the right way
You promised me I’ll behave

And now I feel like energy, I got it coursing in me
Think that I just might rule this world tonight
When the cold drips drops, the fear has a grip on me
What else can I do I’ll come back down to you

I spoke to my brain he said that I made you blush
Been living it up, up of the gold rush
We’re startin' of steady now, we’ll head the right way
You promised me I’ll behave

I gotta shake now,
It's holding me
I gotta shake now
I’m no sight to be seen
