Track Name: regret
life in rural alabama
things seemed so pristine
you grew up and joined the army
you were only seventeen

pledged allegiance to the gospel
of the dead presidents
you would soon regret that promise
and realize just what it meant

are you evil, or are you heaven sent?
are you searching for a god you can't comprehend?

a perfect soldier hits his target
here's a swift pat on the back
a lucky child avoids the drone strike
but that won't bring his sister back

here's a medal, job well done boy
We sure made a man of you
you did good, you served your country
we're so very proud of you

are you evil, or are you heaven sent?
are you searching for some god you can't comprehend?
are you shocked to see the devil waging war on his own people?
would it hurt more if it were your child hanging lifeless from the steeple?
Track Name: late
well i met you when you were seventeen
you were the meanest girl i'd ever seen
you took a breath and you walked right up to me
your perfect skin, covered in ink

well you told me you'd steal me away
from that other woman causing me pain
from that moment until this day
my heart was only yours to break

it hurts to hear you say that it gets better every day
i'm begging you to stay, but it's too late

when i turned 33
i saw god himself looking straight at me
he was trying to get me to see
that if i didn't straighten up then you would leave

it hurts to hear you say that it gets better every day
i'm begging you to stay, but it's too late

when i turn 36
all my problems by then i will have fixed
until then i'll just take a few sips
and try a little harder to give a shit

it hurts to hear you say that it gets better every day
i'm begging you to stay, but it's too late
