2020 Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Limitless

Wake up, everybody wake up
Here we go, it's just another day
Another buzz, another beep
Scrub your face and brush your teeth
Out the door, into the street
I fell out of my sleep
A million different faces
All from different places
Swimming in the sea
Trying to keep your head above water
Trying to keep your head above water

On a night like this
One prayer, one wish
Step out off the edge
It's worth the risk
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless

Wake up, everybody wake up
Morning comes, you do it all again
You know the song, it's on repeat
Found your shoes, can't find your feet
Grab your wallet and your keys
Better not forget to breathe
Sweat until you're soaking
Don't let them see you choking
A teardrop in the sea
Trying to keep your head above water
You're trying to keep your head above water

On a night like this
One prayer, one wish
Step out off the edge
It's worth the risk
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless

Left to figure out
What it's all about
When the sun comes up
And the sun goes down
Is there something more
Than it was before
There's an open door
What are you waiting for

Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless

On a night like this
One prayer, one wish
Step out on the edge
It's worth the risk

On a night like this
One touch, one kiss
Step out on the edge
It's worth the risk
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Life is limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless
Limitless, limitless

Do What You Can

Tonight they're shutting down the borders
And they boarded up the schools
Small towns are rolling up their sidewalks
One last paycheck coming through
I know you're feeling kind of nervous
We're all a little bit confused
Nothing's the same, this ain't a game
We gotta make it through

As we wave outside the window
Older loved ones stay inside
Moms and babies blowing kisses
May be saving someone's life
They had to cancel graduation
It ain't fair to Skype the prom
Our kids sit home in isolation
TV news is always on

When you can't do what you do
You do what you can
This ain't my prayer, it's just a thought
I'm wanting to send
'Round here, we bend but don't break
Down here, we all understand
When you can't do what you do
You do what you can

The chicken farm from Arkansas
Bought workers PPE
Not before 500 more
Had succumbed to this disease
Honest men and honest women
Working for an honest wage
I got a hundred point one fever
And we still got bills to pay

When you can't do what you do
You do what you can
This ain't my prayer, it's just a thought
I'm wanting to send
'Round here, we bend but don't break
Down here, we all understand
When you can't do what you do
You do what you can

They built a hospital on East Meadow
In Central Park last night
Doctors, nurses, truckers, grocery store
Clerks manning the front lines
I saw a Red Cross on the Hudson
They turned off the Broadway lights
Another ambulance screams by (screams by)
If by the grace of God, go I

Although I'll keep my social distance
What this world needs is a hug
Until we find the vaccination
There's no substitute for love
So love yourself and love your family
Love your neighbor and your friend
Ain't it time we loved the stranger
They're just a friend you ain't met yet
Oh

When you can't do what you do
You do what you can (do what you can)
This ain't my prayer, it's just a thought
I'm wanting to send
'Round here, we bend but don't break
Down here, we all understand
When you can't do what you do
You do what you can
When you can't do what you do
You do what you can

American Reckoning

America's on fire
There's protests in the street
Her conscience has been looted
And her soul is under siege
Another mother's crying
As history repeats
I can't breathe

God damn those eight long minutes
Lying face-down in cuffs on the ground
Bystanders pleaded for mercy
As one cop shoved a kid in the crowd
When did a judge and a jury
Become a badge and a knee
On these streets?

Stay alive, stay alive
Shine a light, stay alive
Use your voice and you remember me
American reckoning

I'll never know what it's like
To walk a mile in his shoes
And I'll never have to have the talk
So it don't happen to you

Three little words written 'cross the chest
Of a twelve-year-old who hasn't lived life yet
"Am I next?" "Am I next?"

Stay alive, stay alive
Shine a light, stay alive
Use your voice and you remember me
American reckoning

Is this a moment or movement?
Is this the tide or a flood?
Is our American reckoning
Our story written in blood?
Or in love?
Or in peace?

Stay alive, stay alive
Shine a light, stay alive
Use your voice and you remember me

Stay alive, stay alive
Shine a light, stay alive
Use your voice and you remember me
American reckoning
In our American reckoning

Beautiful Drug

Tear off your mask, no need to hide
There's a prescription that no doctor can prescribe
Can't walk on water, down on your knees
You ain't a number, step right up
This stuff is guaranteed

Ain't got the fever, fever got me
No need to call an ambulance, you got the remedy

Love is a beautiful drug
Love is a beautiful
A mystery that sets you free
It's what you want, it's all we need
Love is a beautiful drug
A beautiful drug

The poets verse can not describe
This kind of wonder that mystifies
Love is the drink to healing thirst
Hear my confession, I don't even need a church

Love is a beautiful drug
I'm talking 'bout, love is a beautiful
A mystery that sets you free
It's what you want, it's all we need
Love is a beautiful drug
A beautiful drug

It pulls you in just like a tide
The deeper deep, a higher high
The taste, the touch, the stuff of dreams
The paradise that's in between
Sweet honey of another hit
You'd almost bite through your own lip
A thorny rose that makes you bleed
A kind of hurt that makes you scream

Love is a beautiful drug
I'm talking 'bout, love is a beautiful
A mystery that sets you free
It's what you want, it's all we need
Love is a beautiful drug
A beautiful drug
A beautiful drug
A beautiful drug

Story of Love

Fathers love daughters like mothers love sons
They've been writing our story before there was one
From the day you arrive, till you walk, till you run
There is nothing but pride, there is nothing but love

They can offer advice that you don't wanna hear
Words that cut like a knife and still ring in your ear
You think of them ignorant, they think of you arrogant
If you need evidence, who gave you confidence?

A snap of the finger and you're not a child
But you're still holding on as you walk down the aisle
When they give you away to hear someone else say
That someone will love you 'til their dying day

Li-di-diddy-di
Li-di-diddy-di

Fathers love daughters like mothers love sons
They've been writing our story before there was one
From the day you arrive 'til you walk, 'til you run
There is nothing but pride, there is nothing but love

And that's the story of love
You can choose to remember or choose to forget
If they took you to school or they tucked you in bed
You can say it don't matter, you won't do the same
You'd think no one noticed when you looked away

Fathers love daughters like mothers love sons
They've been writing our story before there was one
From the day you arrive till you walk, till you run
There is nothing but pride, there is nothing but love

Now they're getting older and you ain't so young
So you take care of them like your daughters and sons
You can ask for forgiveness, they could ask for the same
Forget all the anguish, the heartache, the pain

Wherever you go or wherever you've been
It's them that is with you and that's you that's with them
Fathers and daughters and mothers and sons
As one story ends, another's begun

Li-di-diddy-di
Li-di-diddy-di

Oh, fathers love daughters like mothers love sons
They've been writing our story before there was one
From the day you arrive 'til you walk, 'til you run
There is nothing but pride, there is nothing but love
From hello to goodbye, that's the story of love, oh
That's the story of love, oh

Let It Rain

Ever since there was thunder
There's been shelter from the storm
A place to run for cover
'Til the rain clouds had moved on
Now when I get that feeling
Before the first drop hits the ground
I'm asking, "Who's gonna stop the rain from falling down?"

Wherever there's a soldier
Who won't give up the fight
Wherever there's a darkness
That's trying to find the light
Wherever there is hurting
There is healing on the way
Like sunshine breaking through a cloudy day

Let it rain, let it rain
Let the rain fall all around
Who's gonna stop the rain from falling down?

Maybe someday eyes won't judge you
By the bed you're sleeping in
The God you want to pray to
Or the color of your skin
When priests and politicians
Sell the truth and nothing more
That day we'll know what all of this was for

Let it rain, let it rain
Let the rain fall all around
Who's gonna stop the rain from falling down?

These ain't pretty pictures that we're keeping in the cloud
Outside a storm is raging
Just take a look around

Somewhere there's forgiveness
For the broken ones like me
Who once stared down mighty mountains
And now sit beneath the trees
And somewhere there's a church bell
That's summoning the choir
Somewhere there's a dreamer
Who would walk a thousand miles
Somewhere there's a dreamer
Who would walk a thousand miles

Let it rain, let it rain
Let the rain fall all around
Who's gonna stop the rain from falling?
If you're out there, Christ I'm calling
Who's gonna stop the rain from falling down?

Lower the Flag

Word just came from upstate, Joe
Lower the flag again
This time it's Dayton, southwest Ohio
Last night El Paso, Texas counted twenty-two dead

Soon the brass will offer up their thoughts and prayers
Soon there'll be protests in the street
And the media from out of town
Will chew it up and spit it out
Then move on to the next one
Before we even grieve
Yeah, then move on to the next one
Before we even grieve

Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
But no one wants to live life on their knees
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
But we deserve to live life in between

A husband kissed the cross that bears his Margie's name
And promises he'll see her once again
Won't see her children grow
Won't see their love grow old
Last night their dream became a nightmare
And their nightmare has no end
Last night their dream became a nightmare
And their nightmare has no end

Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
But no one wants to live life on their knees
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
But we deserve to live life in between

These days it's hard to sleep
When I lay my head down
What if it was your loved one
Laying on the ground
I'm left to think about
What if, what now?
Dear God, I wanna pray
But tonight I have my doubts
When I think about those families now

If there's something we can talk about, let's talk about it
If there's something we can figure out, let's figure it out
If there's something we can talk about, let's talk about it
If there's something we can figure out, let's figure it out

El Paso, Texas
Dayton, Ohio
Las Vegas, Nevada
Sebring, Florida
Orlando, Florida
Penn State University
Aurora, Illinois
Virginia Beach, Virginia
Gilroy, California
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
Columbine
Columbine
Sandy Hook Elementary

Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
But no one wants to live life on their knees
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
You believe what you want to believe
But we deserve to live life in between

Word just came from upstate, Joe
Lower the flag again

Blood in the Water

A storm is coming
Let me be clear
Your days are numbered
The end is near
The walls around you
Are closing in
It's too late for praying
Sinner meet sin

Once I came across your border
Now they come to take me back
I sleep with one eye open
I don't make waves, I don't leave tracks
For my daughter and my three sons
It's the only life they've known
To me it's my asylum
These stars and stripes my home

Blood in the water
Who's jumping in?
The devil's made his final offer
Now the sharks are circling
Blood in the water
Our fates are sealed
The devils greatest trick
Was just to say he wasn't real
Satan always used to love to say he wasn't real

Lies are in the forecast
The truth left with the tide
I hear your shadow sold your secrets
And he's gonna do some time
They say the noose fits like a necktie
Sir, you're gonna fit right in
With some old familiar faces
Sinner meet sin

Blood in the water
Who's jumping in?
The devil's made his final offer
Now the sharks are circling
Blood in the water
Our fates are sealed
The devils greatest trick
Was just to say he wasn't real
Satan always used to love to say he wasn't real

I'm no cable news reporter
They got nothing new to say
I'm the voice of the new order
The star of "Anarchy Today"
I'm the comments you keep reading
At the bottom of the page
I'm real power, I'm a patriot
I'm a Russian hack by trade
A russian hack by trade

Blood in the water
Who's jumping in
The devil's made his final offer
Now the sharks are circling
Blood in the water
Our fates are sealed
The devils greatest trick was just to say he wasn't real

Blood in the water
Blood in the water
Now there's blood in the water
Blood in the water

Brothers in Arms

Ever since I was a young boy
Before I'd ever know who I am
My father said you got to walk before you can crawl
So you can run as soon as you can stand
So you can run as soon as you can

Now if every breathing day is a lesson
I been writing this before I could read
When momma said, son, don't let this hard world
Do what it's doing to me
Don't let it do what it's done to me

It's a hard rain that's gonna fall on the city
Still a hard rain that's gonna fall on the farm

There's no 7th day in a world without pity
There's no ball and chain but the change didn't come
Where's my better days? Where's my Jesus saves?
Where's someone to say?
We got to hang on
We're brothers in arms

Down in southern Alabama
It's "Yes sir", "No ma'am", "Thank you", and "Please"
But don't you step out of line, don't re-write or define
What it means to see a man take a knee
Okay, oh, say can you see

It's a hard rain that's gonna fall on the city
Still a hard rain that's gonna fall on the farm

There's no 7th day in a world without pity
There's no ball and chain but the change didn't come
Where's my better days? Where's my Jesus saves?
Where's someone to say?
We got to hang on
We're brothers in arms
We're brothers in arms

It's a hard rain that's gonna fall on the city
Still a hard rain that's gonna fall on the farm
It's a hard rain that's gonna fall on the city
Still a hard rain don't give a damn who you are

There's no 7th day in a world without pity
There's no ball and chain but the change didn't come
Where's my better days? Where's my Jesus saves?
Where's someone to say?
We got to hang on
We're brothers in arms
We're brothers in arms

Unbroken

I was born to be of service
Basic training felt like home
I had honor, I found purpose
Sir, yes, sir, that's what I know
They sent us to a place
I'd never heard of weeks before
When you're 19, it ain't hard to sleep
In the desert on God's floor

Close your eyes, stop counting sheep
You ain't in prison anymore

We were taught to shoot our rifles
Men and women side by side
Thought we'd be met as liberators
In a thousand-year-old fight
I got this painful ringing in my ear
From an IED last night
But no lead-lined Humvee war machine
Could save my sergeant's life

Three more soldiers, six civilians
Need these words to come out right

God of mercy, God of light
Save your children from this life
Hear these words, this humble plea
For I have seen the suffering
And with this prayer I'm hoping
That we can be unbroken

It's eighteen months now I've been back now
With this medal on my chest
But there are things I can't remember
And there are things I won't forget
I lie awake at night
With dreams the devil shouldn't see
I wanna scream but I can't breathe
And, Christ, I'm sweating through these sheets

Where's my brothers? Where's my country?
Where's my how-things-used-to-be?

God of mercy, God of light
Save your children from this life
Hear these words, this humble plea
For I have seen the suffering
And with this prayer I'm hoping
That we can be unbroken

My service dog's done more for me
Than the medication would
There ain't no angel that's coming to save me
But even if they could

Today twenty-two will die from suicide
Just like yesterday, they're gone
I live my life for each tomorrow
So their memories will live on
Once we were boys and we were strangers
Now we're brothers and we're men
Someday you'll ask me "Was it worth it
To be of service in the end?"

Well, the blessing and the curse is
Yeah, I'll do it all again
