Track Name: Home
Just trying to get it together it seems
Takes all the energy I need to succeed
Spent 6 whole months waking up in strange beds
Trying to outrun the call finding out that she's dead

Could you come pick me up?
Forget the years that I've spent drunk.

Take me home,
I'll be better in the morning
Take me home
I'll be better, come the day

Cocaine till I'm anxious
Beer till I'm less
A bundle of nerves and bad habits and stress
But maybe now, I'll hit my stride
Yeah I might have been late
but at least I arrived

Could you come pick me up?
Forget the years that I've spent drunk.

Take me home,
I'll be better in the morning
Take me home
I'll be better, come the day
(Repeat)
Track Name: No Prayer
Old dog hobble down a one way road,
if it wasn’t for the bottle he’d be skin & bones

Hands up to heaven with a heavy load,
dancing to Jesus and the Rolling Stones

So Hey Man Could you pray? Hey man, could you pray?
Ask for forgiveness that old time religion,
but there’s no prayer for me.

Blind St Peter bout to come undone,
moving like he’s shaking off of Jesus’ son
Eyes on the temple, head in his hands,
dancing for the devil and the promise land.

If someone is listening,
demanding what yer hindering
Find a way to set me free.

Ask if yer bleeding, you’ll only stop believing,
beg and cry for sweet release
Pray for yer mother, stay for yer father,
don’t give up on yer family
I’d walk on water, brave fire for a lover,
give my life on bended knee
But don’t ask or forgiveness,
that old time religion,
coz there’s no prayer for me.
