Track Name: WINTER
Holed up on a mountaintop
Dead of winter and I'm better off
Down and out around

I remember one summer yeah
When I met her and I said I love her
Down and out around

And it's been winter for so long
And all my forces on the run
And all your flowers dead and gone
And I thought I saw your face
And it was

Calling my name, honey
Calling my name, but it all
All was in vain when I wake
From a fever dream

Broke down in a mountain town
Tried to stay above the weather
But I ended up down
Down and out around

And it's been winter for so long
And all my forces on the run
And all your flowers dead and gone
And I thought I saw your face
And it was

Calling my name, honey
Calling my name, but it all
All was in vain when I wake
From a fever dream

Holed up on a mountaintop
Sipping liquor from a Molotov
Drinking it down

And it's been winter for so long
And all my forces on the run
And all your flowers dead and gone
And I thought I saw your face
And it was

Calling my name, honey
Calling my name, but it all
All was in vain when I wake
From a fever dream
Track Name: RUN MY SON
Go my son
You better run
Wind's done changed
And the storm's a come
It's coming for everyone
I'm telling you son
You better run

Go my daughter
Go with your brother
Don't look back
Till you cross that river
Hold to each other
If you see danger
Hear me, girl
You better run

Oh you better run

Now go my brother
Never mind the weather
Gonna be bad
And it ain't gettin' better
Pray one day
We'll be together
But for now
You better run

You better run

Go my lover
My childrens' mother
Beyond the border
Or even further
And if you must
Then love another
For I am lost
A fallen soldier

Run my son
You gotta run my son
You better run my son
(For I am lost)
Oh, you better run my son
Track Name: EVEN THOUGH
Well I am a lover
But I'm fighting within
I'm an outsider
But ain't looking in

I'm a true Christian
But I ain't free from sin
And when I'm arriving
I'm leaving again

I never been homeless
But I'm begging for change
Somewhere to go bury
My mortal remains

I lie to myself
But I'll tell you the truth
I'm looking for something
But thinking of you

And even though I can't stay
Even though I must go
Even now I'm on a path
Of peril and woe
Even though we were lovers
Even when we foes
Even then I hoped someday
Even though, even though

I question the answers
I question my life
I once saw a gentleman
Going home with my wife
I been under the gun
I been under the knife
And I'm hoping for a comeback
In the afterlife

And even though I can't stay
Even though I must go
Even now I'm on a path
Of peril and woe
Even though we were lovers
Even when we were foes
Even then I hoped someday
Even though, even though
