Track Name: O, Mother
She was a low-down, no good, snake in the grass
breathing fire and drinking from a stolen flask
but I shot her in the chest and I watched her die
won't say I'm sorry and I never will cry

O, Mother, don't you know that the devil reaps all the seeds you sow
O, Daddy, can't you see that the bottom's hidden when the well is deep

I was a slave to the woman for seven years
Tending vines in her garden of blood and tears
But she taught me well how to make things bleed
And she never saw it coming when it came from me

(chorus)

How the sins of a father will haunt their child
In a whiskey halo or a lonely smile
but when family resemblance rears its head
you can dig it up or you can bury it dead

(chorus)
Track Name: From A Bottle
I've wasted years now listening to you say you want me
That you'd marry me when you were free to choose
but I've opened up my eyes, see your words are only lies
so I've taken on a lover to replace you


There is nothing I can get from you that I can't get from a bottle
I still get the morning-after shame,
Still lay in bed and curse your name all afternoon
I still smoke cigarettes for dinner, instead of going out and finding someone new
There is nothing I can get from you that I can't get from a bottle

In my current situation I have choices
Jim and Jack are always standing by
but my favorite is Jose, he stays the night and half the day
and when he leaves for good I feel like I could die

(chorus)

Except it doesn't give me half as much regret,
There is nothing I can get from you that I can't get from a bottle.
Track Name: Like We Were
We were young, and we were only learning
how one touch could stop the turning of the clock
we were strong, thought no pain could come between us
that we'd lean on each other when it came
when it came

You don't need me anymore, though you promised me forever
You can't see me anymore, I still want to be together like we were
Like we were

You were safe, and your voice was home to me
And it was hard for me to sleep outside your arms
You were mine and I built my world around you
And believed that I had found a place to rest
A place to rest

(chorus)
