Track Name: Salisbury
got a sixty dollar check on the bed
but she takes cash and all the time to see you
she ain't my first and won't be my last
but i wish they all could be you
I hope you never know
I hope you won't
see me for what I'm really for
a man all alone

he's got dreams, he's got a job, he's got everything you need
you won't have to tame him, he don't ramble
he's everything but me
I hope he treats you well
I hope he dont
find himself inside this hell
that I've come to call home

fifty-six miles left to Salisbury when I see your face
you fly by on the arm of a guy in a brand new chevrolet
I know it can't be you
must be your ghost
but i can still imagine you
the one I loved the most

now I know sometimes
we got torn
and my speeches don't hold their weight
anymore

fifty-six miles left to Salisbury when I see your face
Track Name: Dogfish Head
I took to long to think my time over
Now she gone and done run for cover
She left me lost floatin on the eastern shorebed
And I got a dogfish swimming in my head

Ramblin ramblin is all I've been good for
Gamblin' gamblin' is what I took her love for
Found her cheatin' one night and I saw red
Now I got a dogfish swimming in my head

I got a dogfish swimming in my head
Few more years and I fear I'll be dead
Found love and loss on the old eastern shorebed
Now I got a dogfish swimming in my head

Ride or die ain't no motto for a good man
but your brother's your brother and that's the way it's always been
so I'll follow you tonight in hopes that we'll score
Family and love and blood is all we live for

I got a dogfish swimming in my head
Few more years and I fear I'll be dead
Found love and loss on the old eastern shorebed
Now I got a dogfish swimming in my head
Track Name: Dirty Hands
Move fast, and talk real low
We'll sneak in, so they dont know
You take the back, and I' come in front firing
It's us or them, either way someone's dying

Don't worry now, my brother
Either way, we have each other
Just think tomorrow, we'll be sitting pretty
But for now, we gotta get our hands dirty

Move fast, and talk real low
No looking back, brother it's time that we go
Treeline over there, hides ease and freedom
Onward now, what you say we meet em?

Don't worry now, my brother
Either way, we have each other
Just think tomorrow, we'll be sitting pretty
But for now, we gotta get our hands dirty

Move fast, and talk real low
Them siren sounds, are getting mighty close
Hounds barkin louder, better throw em off trail
Best we split ways, I'll see you in hell

Don't worry now, my brother
Either way, we have each other
Just think tomorrow, we'll be sitting pretty
But for now, we gotta get our hands dirty
Track Name: Reform
the glass is shattered
the parking garage closed at two
but that don't matter
cause I won't be coming home to you
I've gone to hell for
a pocket full of cash and a couple of pills
now I'm in reform
welfare checks for sure can't pay my bills

and this shade of bright orange
has got to be the blandest thing I've seen
now I'm in reform
I fit right into a criminal's seams

I never should have pulled that trigger
but I'll tell you hon, one thing's for sure
I have never felt bigger
Track Name: Baltimore
I met her first in Baltimore, we got on just fine
I'm headed home to hold her, across that old line
two years now I've fought this war, it one day at a time
criminal or savior, make up your damn minds.
cause I ain't got time

her brother owns a body shop, says he got me a job
thankful for the steady work, but it's barely enough
kids in the parks way after dark, asking for more
you've got your freedom I fought for that, now even the score
cause I ain't got time

she tells me that she's late again, and I just smile
we laugh about how hard it's been, walking our mile
I pull up my boots, and she rolls up her sleeves
thankful to live this life, our american dream
cause I ain't got time
Track Name: Home
Be on my side, I pray every night
I bend my eyes to look upon high
in my day I stole time away
in my night I beg to repay

but how long before I find home
uncertain in what I have known
it seems that good days are not so far away
will I find home

toe to toe we step forward
eye to eye we see our brothers
we load our guns and open fire
shots ring out the sound of our desire

but how long before we find home
uncertain in what we've become
we're told that good days are not so far away
will we find home

I don't know home anymore
be on my side I pray every night
