Track Name: Lost
Instrumental
Track Name: Forgotten
Super-sized then ostracized
Forgotten
Left behind – didn’t fit the times
Forgotten
Left for dead in another’s bed
Forgotten
Daddy’s boy – never felt the joy

Mommy’s pride – but empty inside
Forgotten
Half a man – now it’s time you ran
Forgotten
Left alone ‘cause you’re always cold
Forgotten
Did the crime – now it’s rotting time
Track Name: Why Won't You Talk to Me?
I see you walk around every single day
And I hear the words come out, but still don’t know what you say
I wanna get to know you
I wanna know – all about you
Why won’t you talk to me (in a language I’ll understand)?

Why won’t you talk to me?
Why won’t you talk to me?
Track Name: Cirrcut
Instrumental
Track Name: Oh Father
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Oh No

I was young
I didn’t know
You were wiser
And you told me so

Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Oh No
Then you lied
I didn’t know
Everything changed

Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Oh No

Oh Father who ain’t in heaven
Do you remember my name?
I trusted you and you let me down
So nothing’s changed

I couldn’t cry
I didn’t know
I kept to myself

Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Hey, what do you know?
Hate can bring you anything
Track Name: Jesus is Not a Weapon
Jesus is not a weapon
That’s what my mamma told me
He’s a god of love from way high up above
And he don’t take sides when it comes to human’s pride

Son you’ve got to fight your own battles
No one else can raise the flag for you
If you don’t care enough
To take care of that stuff
No one else is gonna pull you through

Jesus is not a weapon
That’s what my mamma told me
He’s a god of love from way high up above
And he don’t take sides when it comes to human’s pride

Don’t let your luck run you over
Cause your life’s not a game of chance
Don’t rely on your father, and don’t you count on me
To make it right again this time

Jesus is not a weapon
That’s what my mamma told me
He’s a god of love from way high up above
And he don’t take sides when it comes to human’s pride

Just step right over it
It’s not much of a leap or a jump
Time to dig to the bottom
To look for clues

Jesus is not a weapon
That’s what my mamma told me
He’s a god of love from way high up above
And he don’t take sides when it comes to human’s pride
Track Name: A Whole Man
I can walk I can stand tall
But something ‘round the corner is gonna make me fall

I can stand I can scream and shout
But sometimes I don’t know what all the yelling’s about

I’m not a whole man

I try to be responsibly
Always falling all around
I always try to make my case
I always end up falling much further from grace

I’m not a whole man

My legs work – my hands work – I’m not a whole man
My eyes work – my tongue works – I’m not a whole man
My fingers work – my arms work

I’m not a whole man
Track Name: Double DoubleCrossed
Man did I know it
As soon as you left town
All of my future
Was in the lost and found

Double Doublecrossed
Search until I’m lost
Coming up around the bend
Try potentially
But the jokes on me
I see it in your face

You, you told me
You were coming back
I waited
But the deck was stacked

Double Doublecrossed
Search until I’m lost
Coming up around the bend
Try potentially
But the jokes on me
I see it in your face
Track Name: Guitar Interlude
Guitar instrumental
Track Name: Lost and Found
Lost and found
Still lost and found
In every eye I see
Strangers just like me

Don’t you wanna live forever?
Don’t you wanna try?
Wouldn’t that all be much better?
I just wanna live ‘till I die

Lost and found
Still lost and found
In strangers eyes I saw
Still strangers all along

Lost and found
Still lost and found
Familiar faces now
Seem foreign to me somehow

Don’t you wanna live forever?
Don’t you wanna try?
Wouldn’t that all be much better?
I just wanna live ‘till I die

Lost and found
Still lost and found
In strangers eyes I saw
Still strangers all along

Lost and found
Still lost and found
In stranger’s eyes I see
Strangers just like me
