Track Name: Quittin' Time
Whistle's blowin' 'cause it's quittin' time.
All day to make a poor man's dime.
Bells are ringin' and I'm feelin' fine.
So fine, 'cause it's quittin' time.

Gonna hit the town tonight
Run around like I'm out of sight.
I might even pick a couple of fights.
If I'm lucky they won't touch me while I'm puttin' out the lights.

Whistle's blowin' 'cause it's quittin' time.
All day to make a poor man's dime.
Bells are ringin' and I'm feelin' fine.
So fine, 'cause it's quittin' time.

Gonna cut some rug somewhere.
Beat's a- bumpin' and I just don't care.
Everybody's gonna stop and stare.
They can't touch this. Take a big whiff. It'll rock you outta your chair.

Whistle's blowin' 'cause it's quittin' time.
All day to make a poor man's dime.
Bells are ringin' and I'm feelin' fine.
So fine, 'cause it's quittin' time.

Bring it down 'til they're headin' home.
Find somebody else that's all alone.
A hungry dog huntin' for a bone.
When the doors close the good lord knows can't get blood from a heart of stone.

Whistle's blowin' 'cause it's quittin' time.
All day to make a poor man's dime.
Bells are ringin' and I'm feelin' fine.
So fine, 'cause it's quittin' time.
Track Name: Let the Embers Burn
There was a demon within my soul.
He begged and pleaded not to go.
When he was leaving, he let me know
he'd send his brothers from below.
As I was cleaning the empty hole
the fires raged without control.

If I let the embers burn as I wait for your return
can the ashes in the urn ignite?

The sons of Sceva invoked your name.
Cast out the evil like a game.
Such make believing just fanned the flame.
Naked and bleeding, they were trained.
As I was grieving this lonely rain
his seven brothers came to stay.

If I let the embers burn as I wait for your return
can the ashes in the urn ignite?
Track Name: Vacant Stare
Oh, sweet momma. Now you've got it comin'
and who's bringing it should be me.
You've got a real sweet smile that goes on for miles
and you're making it hard to breathe.

If you're lonely, you can hold me.
If you're needy, you can believe me.

You've got that vacant stare like you just don't care
if nobody's gonna take you home.
But, I'm goin' there. And, darlin' let's be clear
that I don't wanna have to go alone.

If you're lonely, you can hold me.
If you're needy, you can believe me.
Track Name: Against the Odds
I bet against the odds. I felt the hand of god
not softly and tenderly, just reprimanding me.
It's been a long time since the fall.
It's been a long time since you called to say that you're sorry.

Sweet Jesus, can you hear me whisper?
Sweet Jesus, can you hear me cry?

I was lost in a daydream. Couldn't hear when the world
screamed out in agony, screaming because of me.
I couldn't stand to face the truth.
I couldn't stand to lose my youth, but it happened anyway.

Sweet Jesus, can you hear me whisper?
Sweet Jesus, can you hear me cry?

I bet against the odds.
