Track Name: Just Like Me
Just Like Me

Morning don’t bring him no delight
He’d much prefer the middle of the night
When all is dark
And his face is revealed by a spark

Women are like a Sudoku
The kind that only experts do
They took his heart
And they tore it right the hell apart, but

This ain’t his daddy’s misery
It ain’t his momma beggin’ please
This ain’t his sister prayin’ on her knees
It’s just a man who’s just like me

Traffic will make him lose his mind
Gridlocked on I – 95
His window’s down
And he’s facin’ a monster of a town

Objects in his rearview mirror
Are further away than they appear
His past is gone
As if he’s been this old all along, but

This ain’t his daddy’s misery
It ain’t his momma beggin’ please
This ain’t his sister prayin’ on her knees
It’s just a man who’s just like me

It’s like he’s circling the drain
Running to catch a moving train
Taming the lion in his brain
Hopin' to leave his master's cage
Some day, but you know

This ain’t his daddy’s misery
It ain’t his momma beggin’ please
This ain’t his sister prayin’ on her knees
It’s just a man who’s just like me

It's just a man who's just like me
It's just a man who's just like me
It's just a man who's just like me
It's just a man who's just like me
Track Name: All Over Creation
All Over Creation

Sometimes I drive all over creation
Seein' things I’ve never seen before
Like a new flag that reminds me of our nation
Or my future favorite liquor store

And then I think
Where the hell was I goin’ but I
Reconsider what my plans
May have been

Sometimes I drive all over creation
Through the shadows of some evergreens
I pass by so many people racin'
Over, under, and in the in-betweens

And then I think
Where the hell was I goin' but I
Reconsider what my plans
May have been

And then I wait
On some bridge over some blue sea
I think this is where I want to be
I want to be

And then I wait
On some bridge over some blue sea
I think this is where I want to be
I want to be

Like I never did before
I want to be
Like this ocean’s restless shore
I want to be
Until I am no more
Track Name: No Risk
No Risk

The tightrope walker may fall to his death
But the view from up there already took his breath, he said
I’m gonna do whatever makes me feel alive
It might kill me in the end, but that’s alright ‘cause

No risk, no reward
You’ll never find out what’s in store if you
Keep walking on these big old floors

Feeling the waves on his way to the beach
A soldier knew of one thing they could not reach
This is for freedom, not for me but for you
They might put me down, but I’m gonna do what I gotta do ‘cause

No risk, no reward
You’ll never find out what’s in store
If you’re too afraid to storm your enemies' shores

Now when it comes to the ultimate gift
I know that we can all make it exist
By showing love in the face of all the doubt
Or else we’ll just continue on without ‘cause

No risk, no reward
You’ll never find out, what’s in store
If you keep wondering what your heart is for

It’s a cosmic dream of the epic kind
It’s a storybook we can’t leave behind
It’s a photograph of what we might have
It’s the simple math that’s within our grasp, but

No risk, no reward
You’ll never find out, what’s in store
If you keep wondering what your heart is for

No risk, no reward
You’ll never find out, what’s in store
If you keep wondering what your heart is for
(It's just love...)
If you keep wondering what your heart is for…
Track Name: I Roll On
I Roll On

I would have left you in the south
Had I known what was to come
I’m sorry never left your mouth
Just when I thought I knew someone

So like your marbles, I roll on
With ups and downs just like a song
With a little mystery like a bone
I roll on, I roll on

You know I felt just like your father
Comin’ to get you from your prom
‘Cause you got caught with some wine coolers
And now you ride with folded arms

So like your marbles I roll on
With a heart as heavy as a stone
Like light in darkness all alone
I roll on, I roll on

I roll on
I roll on
I roll on
I roll on

So like your marbles, I roll on
With a fadin’ pain that’s never really gone
With my tumbleweed feet still goin’ strong
I roll on
I roll on

I roll on
I roll on
I roll on
I roll on
Track Name: Beyond an Orange Sky
Beyond an Orange Sky

People it seems, they lose their way
As surely as night will follow the day
Some run and hide, while some stay and fight
As surely as day will follow the night
That’s why I’m gone, beyond, that orange sky

Now I can’t deny, all I have tried
Many different things to ease my troubled mind
The hills in the fall, the stars up above
Could never lift me up, not with all of their love
And so I’m gone, beyond that orange sky…don’t ask me why

I’m leavin’, believin’, that if I get outta here
then my head will be clear
I’m fearin’, that I’m nearin’, the end of what began
As a young man’s little plan
And so I’m gone, beyond, that orange sky.

Like a leaf on a tree, or a wise man who knows
I do a little dance when that cold wind blows
So I try to make sense of what’s on the screen
But all I take away is that this movie’s obscene
And so I’m gone, beyond, that orange sky...don’t ask me why

I’m leavin’, believin’, that if I get outta here
Then my head will be clear
I’m fearin’, that I’m nearin’, the end of what began
As a young man’s little plan
And so I’m gone, beyond, that orange sky...don’t ask me why

I’m gone, beyond an orange sky
Don't ask me why...
I’m gone, beyond, that orange sky.
