Track Name: The Sea Ballad
You sold your soul to the sea
And you left behind a family
You left behind a family
To go sailing to the great unknown
And you made this ship your home
You made this ship your home

To never look back
To never look back

You had a wife who was a beauty queen
And three sons of whom you’ll never see
Will they grow up? Will they ever grow old
Become like the man they heard in the stories they were told
Like their father, their missing father
Swallowed up in the sea, by a whale in the salty breeze

To never look back
To never look back

They went to college to forget about the man
Who left them behind, left them behind
He was a loser and coward
Who adopted these ocean waves, over three crying babes

To never look back
To never look back

Where is he now?
Where is he now?
Is he still at sea missing his family
Or is he buried in the ground

To never look back
To never look back
Track Name: Things I Can't See
I remember February, two years ago
You gave yourself to God and he gave you all you know
When it was said and done, you said that you felt cleansed
Like a baby reborn, he took away your sins

Praise the lord, praise to the skies
Praise to the things I can’t see
Praise until I die

Now I’m stuck in a place, I don’t recognize
I thought that I had found the light, I thought it was in your eyes
So I went to my favorite whiskey priest
He said that he does not know and that he cannot help me

Praise the lord, praise to the skies
Praise to the things I can’t see
Praise until I die

Now it’s May and you’re feeling so strange
All those feelings you once had, they all went away
So you turn to a book, so you turn to the church
Hoping that they’ll heal your soul, right where it hurts

Praise the lord, praise to the skies
Praise to the things I can’t see
Praise until I die

When you ran away, I was so sad
I felt that I had lost the greatest friend I had ever had
Now you’re going to help all those who don’t give a piss
Work in a soup kitchen, then you’ll cease to exist

Praise the lord, praise to the skies
Praise to the things I can’t see
Praise until I die
Track Name: A Smile to Fit Your Face
You say, you’re only happy, yeah you’re only happy when every one is sad
You say, your goal in life is bad, but you want to make everyone you love mad

Hey baby, you’ve got sorrows
Yeah, you’ve got sorrows and they’re filling your mind
Hey baby, I say, I’ve got happiness everyday
And I think I have a smile to fit your face

And I say, I’m only happy, yeah I’m only happy when everyone is happy too
And darling you say, you’re kidding yourself, anyway, I think you need to take a break just for you

Hey baby, you’ve got sorrows
Oh, you’ve got sorrows and they’re filling your mind
Hey baby, I say, I’ve got happiness everyday
And I think I have a smile to fit your face

How could such opposites attract
What is it that brought me to you
But it’s magic, oh yeah, it’s magic, oh yeah
How we combine for this greater good

Hey baby, you’ve got sorrows
Oh, you’ve got sorrows and they’re filling your mind
Hey baby, I say, I’ve got happiness everyday
And I think I have a smile to fit your face

Hey baby, you’ve got sorrows
You’ve got sorrows, and they’re filling your mind
Hey baby, I say, I’ve got happiness everyday
And I think I have a smile to fit your face.
Track Name: The Cowboy Song
Daddy was a cowboy, he’d ride until dawn
And in his bed, he’d rest his head with his boots on
Daddy was a cowboy, his horse his only friend
And in the morn, although torn, he’d rise to ride again

But daddy where are you now, you left us but we don’t know how
Depression locked the door, you were looking sore, now we won’t see you anymore

Daddy was an astronaut, he went to the moon
He circled the sun, yeah it was fun
Now he’s coming back soon

Daddy was an astronaut, by shuttle he had flown
But nothing compares to what was there, when he came home

Daddy came knocking on his door, He was looking sore
Mama was there, with her affair, lying the kitchen floor

But daddy where are you now, you left us but we don’t know how
Depression locked the door, you were looking sore, now we won’t see you anymore
Track Name: Moonville
Moonville, my only love
Now I look on you, from above
I went a wandering, late one night
And I saw your train’s bright light
And he honked his horn and he rang his bell
And I tried to run but I only fell

Moonville, took my life
On that foggy, summer night

Now that funeral, half past noon
The congregation sang a solemn tune
Upon my passing, oh how they loved me so
So I thought I’d let everyone known

Moonville, my only love
Now I look on you, from above

Moonville, my only love
Now I look on you, from above
Moonville, you took my life
On that foggy, summer night
Track Name: I'm Going Down
The world’s still spinning, under my feet
If I lose my balance, I’ll crumble to the sea
I had my strings wrapped tight around your waist
But the knot has come loose and our love is starting to fade

I’m going down
I’m going down
I’m going down
I’m going down

Now I’ve become exactly what I’ve feared
All of those things I once held dear
Now, I’m grown up and I have my own dreams
If you don’t want to be in them I won’t you force you to be

Cause I’m going down
I’m going down
I’m going down
I’m going down

I’m going down
I’m going down
I’m going down
Track Name: The Saddest Song
I’ll write, the saddest song
That will prove to you that you were right and I was wrong
I’ll write, the saddest song
That will keep your eyes a-cryin’ all night long

And I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me again

I’ll try to win your heart
So that sweet image of me won’t become tart
I’ll try to win your heart
But you’d never been too keen on that from the start

And I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me again

And I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me again

I’ll write the saddest song
That will prove to you that you were right and I was wrong
I’ll write, the saddest song
That will keep your eyes a-cryin’ all night long

And I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me
Yeah, I’ll make you fall in love with me again
