Track Name: Brave Baby - Magic and Fire
We arrived, we arrived on time
With scenes from the night and smiles spoiled with magic and fire
You go tell them we’re gunning, you go tell them we’re gunning for the wild
Tell our beds and our cousins, we won’t be back for nothing in a while

Take me home, it’s where my heart is
Don’t let me go, we’ve gone too far
Tie down the load, it’s all we’ve got
Ferry me boys, ferry me boys

Strange in a new suit, stare at the new you in your place
You bought the bargain, laced up in garments every way
This isn’t what I wanted, this isn’t what I wanted for us darlings
Sell all your boots and bottoms, trade in your coats for commerce pay the way

Take me home, it’s where my heart is
Don’t let me go, we’ve gone too far
Tie down the load, it’s all we’ve got
Ferry me boys, ferry me boys
Track Name: ELIM BOLT - Farm Kid
Used to reach for the ceiling
Now I'm running, tires squealing
You worked wonders, lift me upwards
Always loving, always coming

And, All I wanna do is truly love you
But all I seem to do is deeply hurt you
When all I wanna do is truly love you
But all I seem to do is deeply hurt you

Tried my best to fix the problem
Lies keep coming down the wire
One in a million messed it up man
Played with fire, burnt me up friend

And, All I wanna do is truly love you
But all I seem to do is deeply hurt you
When all I wanna do is truly love you
But all I seem to do is deeply hurt you

As a farm kid in the city
All the streetlights look so pretty
I'm so tired, I'm straight wired
All these feelings never ending

And, All I wanna do is truly love you
But all I seem to do is deeply hurt you
When all I wanna do is truly love you
But all I seem to do is deeply hurt you
Track Name: The Lovely Few - Sci Fi Novels
I would like to breathe, but I cannot escape the machine
Daily all its teeth press a little harder into me
So I try to sleep
What are all those lights I see?

As the pages turn I can feel the arms of the clock wrapping around me
Tying up my mind
I can't even dream 'cause they're still there waiting for me
So I try to sleep
I can see that red digital readout staring back at me
Calling all the streetlights down
Track Name: Mr. Jenkins - Suddenly, I Don't Feel So Afraid*
Suddenly, I don't feel
I don't feel so strange
I don't feel so afraid anymore
You surely feel it too

It's become the new policy of truth
You know just what you have to do
To be happier
To be happier

Awkward tensions
Weird phrases ensue
Is it real? Will it do?

What are you feeling?
Am I talking too much?
Track Name: Brave Baby - Lakeside Trust
I could barely touch, I wasn’t brave enough
You know I didn’t know much but something’s on its way to wreck the bunch
Forgetting who he was, forgetting who I was
Moving to the lakeside, trust that everyday we rise you’ll be with us
We found an old pontoon in a clear view It was my way out but I never found out how to make it move
Forgetting who she was, forgetting who I was
Moving to the ocean, trust that she is coming back to rise with us
We took a ride that night, my father drived
We were looking for life and better times

There was a fire
At the corer of Coming and Bogard
Get down to the wire
Little baby is finding cover in the car

Brother fire please be kind
God made you strong and beautiful and bright
Raise the dirt, little structures we try
I’m older now
I don’t want to live here anymore
The chimneys are blocked off and I was counting on your world
Slowing up before we rise, I’ll hold onto the light

There was a fire
At the corer of Coming and Bogard
Get down to the wire
Little baby is finding cover in his heart
There was a fire
At the corer of Coming and Bogard
Get down to the wire
Only lovers find each other in the dark
Track Name: ELIM BOLT - Only You
Called in sick for work today
Just didn't feel like rolling out of the hay
Lost my god damn mind
I threw it away somewhere in the pines

Only you can bring me down
The way you used to bring me down

Lonely, sick, and blue
Oh what's a girl supposed to do?
I'm laying around all day
I'm so high

Only you can bring me down
The way you used to bring me down

All of my life
I have followed so blind
Now here's my piece of the pie
Track Name: Mr. Jenkins - You're Free*
I prayed for rain, sleet and snow, and hail to keep you in.
You won't give up.
You want answers today, so you're leaving this place.

I see this as home.
I see this as good.
Why won't you stay and act like you should?
Why won't you play by the rules?

The snow melted fast and now you're free (so free) and always have been.
Could I interest you in a drink or two... or twelve?
Nothing can stop you now.

I see this as home.
I see this as good.
Why won't you stay and act like you should?
Why won't you play by the rules?

What will you find?
Track Name: Brave Baby - Living In A Country
Now I’m older, I don’t feel young
This far horizon setting in the sun
This city is beneath me
Living in a country
Where everybody likes thinking they’re the only
One alone

Someone’s in the house sneaking up below me
Someone’s in the car out there waiting for me
Someone on the phone, tell me that you love me
Cause someone’s in the house sneaking up below me

It’s getting closer, to the hopes we hold
But we’re losing all the ones that we love the most
So what will still be left, when everyone is dead
The things I should have done, the things I should have said
I’m not alone when the souls have all grown in my home

Someone’s in the house sneaking up below me
Someone’s in the car out there waiting for me
Someone on the phone tell me that you love me
Cause someone’s in the house sneaking up below me
Track Name: ELIM BOLT - Field (Punk Ending)*
Grew up in South Carolina In a lonely field
That's how I learned To be lonely still
It's not hard to imagine
Wasn't much to do But sit around and get high with you

So we packed our bags
We headed out
We done all we can do In this old railroad town
So we quit our jobs
We sold our cars
Took the money and bailed

Never much of a companion
It's not like I try
Oh I grew up in Elim
Ah honey, there's more deer than people
And I boxed out the ones I knew
I find comfort in solitude

So we packed our bags
We headed out We done all we can do In this old railroad town
So we quit our jobs
We sold our cars
Took the money and bailed

So we packed our bags
We headed out
We done all we can do
In this old tourist town
So we quit our jobs
We sold our cars
Took the money and bailed

Oh no, what'll I do
I'm so alone since I lost you
Track Name: The Lovely Few - Orion
I will always look to see you in the night
You will always feel for the coming cold
On your shoulder I can see a crimson light
You know I can hear your breathing come and go

Waiting like a hunter for you sisters there
Waiting for the dawn to break into my eyes
You know I'm a killer, I don't even care
I roll with the punches each and every time
