If I could light, light you up
I think I’d smoke a pack a day
If I could drip, drip you dry
Think I’d drink, drink you straight

I’d get my fix with every kiss from lips of novocain

I can’t quit, I gotta have it
In so deep, I crave it bad
It’s all I want, to be your addict
Girl you make it hard to kick the habit

Shake, make me shake
Put your kiss on my face
Knock me down, spin me round
You won’t keep me on the ground

Oh so pretty, makes me dizzy
Too much ain’t enough

I can’t quit, I gotta have it
In so deep, I crave it bad
It’s all I want, to be your addict
Girl you make it hard to kick the habit

I gotta have you
I gotta have you
I gotta have you

I’ll be your personal junky
The beating in your heart
Just say you gotta have me
Say you’ll never stop

I can’t quit, I gotta have it
In so deep, I crave it bad
It’s all I want, to be your addict
Girl you make it hard to kick the habit

I gotta have you
I gotta have you
I gotta have you

“House That Jack Built”
Tyler Bryant, Jaren Johnston, Bonnie Baker

I aint never loved nobody, nobody ever gonna love me
And I never understood why he’s so good, I gotta kill a case of jealousy

Why would any woman ever really wanna love another
Just a drifter, gonna kiss her, first I gotta kill her mister

I’m in the house that Jack built, up on the hill
More than time for this man to kill
Yeah there’s a gun on the floor, an empty bottle of pills
In the house that Jack built, waiting for Jill

Come on baby I’m gonna light you a candle, pour you a glass of wine
We both know ol’ Jack wasn’t much of the sweet romantic kind

So come on over baby, maybe I’ll make you the lady of the

House that Jack built, up on the hill
More than time for this man to kill
Yeah there’s a gun on the floor, an empty bottle of pills
In the house that Jack built, waiting for Jill

So come on over baby, maybe I’ll make you the lady of the

House that Jack built, up on the hill
More than time for this man to kill
Yeah there’s a gun on the floor, an empty bottle of pills
In the house that Jack built, waiting for Jill

Writer: Tyler Bryant

Pulled out from the station
Fifteen after two
300 miles away from Vegas
We had nothin better to do

30 dollars left in my pocket
And three last cigarrettes
Tom Petty was playing on the radio
Life was as good as it could get

We get crazy and we get wild
But we never did hurt no one
We get loud and we get high
Just livin out on the run
Days are short but our nights are long
And everybody’s singing along
When we get crazy and we get wild
We’re livin, we’re livin the good life

I spent some time in the city
Where everything moves so fast
I met girl.. she was pretty
But we both knew that it would never last

I’m living out this red suitcase
Taking it day by day
The bright lights became an addiction
And nothing can take that away

We get crazy and we get wild
But we never did hurt no one
We get loud and we get high
Just livin out on the run
Days are short but our nights are long
And everybody’s singing along
When we get crazy and we get wild
We’re livin, we’re just livin the good life

We get crazy and we get wild
But we never did hurt no one
We get loud and we get high
Just livin out on the run
Days are short but our nights are long
And everybody’s singing along
When we get crazy and we get wild
We’re livin, we’re livin the good life

“Say A Prayer”
Tyler Bryant, Nolan Sipes, Ryan Peterson

Well she’s a bloodhound chasing me down like I’m a criminal
Runnin and runnin and runnin, like I’m an animal
Billboards promise rewards for my capture
Runnin and runnin and runnin, but she’s faster

Mama, say a prayer for me
Mama, say a prayer for
Your only child, out in the wild
Cause she’s got him down on his knees
Mama. say a prayer for me

Well I’m addicted to the fix of her chemical
I need it I need it I need, I need a miracle
Water to wine, got me drinkin like a sailor
I need it I need it I need, I need a chaser

Mama, say a prayer for me
Mama, say a prayer for
Your only child, out in the wild
Cause she’s got him down on his knees
Mama. say a prayer

She’s heartless, heartless, bones and cartilage
Tried to stop it, digging out a splinter
Mother mother, I still want her

Mama, say a prayer for me
Mama, say a prayer for
Your only child, out in the wild
She’s got him down on his knees
Your prodigal son’s at the point of her gun
And she’s got him begging her please
Mama, say a prayer for me
Mama, say a prayer for me
Say a prayer for me, say a prayer for me

“Being Here”
Tyler Bryant, Drew Lawrence

If you want problems, well I got em
Everything around me seems to break
Like a leaky faucet, I just can’t stop it
And I wonder how much more of me you’ll take

And you smile, you smile

You lift me up like no one else, when it feels I’m a danger to myself
When I’ve fallen captive to my fears
Laying here in your arms of grace, looking in to an angel’s face
You rescue me from the place I disappear
Just by being here

When the coldest winds blow
You shut the windows
And you leave my demons fighting in the yard
You rock me easy
Gather up my pieces
And you pull me from my fallen house of cards

And you smile, you smile

You lift me up like no one else, when it feels I’m a danger to myself
When I’ve fallen captive to my fears
Laying here in your arms of grace, looking in to an angel’s face
You rescue me from the place I disappear
By being here
Just by being here

Well I’ve stood on the edge of a long way down
A can’t go back, a no way out
I was on my way to nowhere
A stranger in my skin, I couldn’t find hope
The places I’ve been, nothing felt like home
You found me drifting in the somewhere

Now you lift me up like no one else, when it feels I’m a danger to myself
When I’ve fallen captive to my fears
Oh, laying here in your arms of grace, looking in to an angel’s face
You rescue me from the place I disappear
You always rescue me form the place I disappear
By being here
Just by being here

“Kickin”
Tyler Bryant, Justin Tocket

I threw my wishes down the well, but the well went dry
Can’t seem to get ahead, I’m always three steps behind
The fortune teller said, I guess she wasn’t lying
You can’t sell your soul these days cause nobody’s buying

I keep on kickin
I keep on kickin
Don’t try to tell me what to do
Cause I won’t listen
I keep on kickin

They say you better go to church, you better stay in school
Always listen to your mama, never ever break a rule
I can’t live inside your lies, I think they’re kinda dumb
You can point your finger, but I’m only having fun

I keep on kickin
I keep on kickin
Don’t try to tell me what to do
Cause I won’t listen
I keep on kickin
I keep on kickin
If you think you’ll hold me down
Just keep on wishing
I keep on kickin

This one’s for the kids, who are barely getting by
Never growing up, who never even tried
I’d like to make a toast, to those who criticize
You can kiss my ***, cause until the day I die

I keep on kickin
I keep on kickin
Don’t try to tell me what to do
Cause I won’t listen
I keep on kickin
I keep on kickin
If you think you’ll hold me down
Just keep on wishing
I keep on kickin

“Shackles”
Tyler Bryant, Ashley Monroe, Jason Stoltzfus

I hear Shackles
Coming through the door
I hear Shackles
Draggin cross the floor
I’m in the kitchen
But I aint gonna run
Lookout Shackles
I got a gun
I got a fun

I hear Shackles
Creepin down the halls (Halls, Halls, Halls)
I hear Shackles
Rattling the walls (Walls, Walls, Walls)
Well I lay here
No I don’t make a peep, no
Good luck Shackles
Latching on to me
Latching on to me

Cause I’m a bad, bad, bad, bad man
Well I’m a bad, bad, bad, bad man

I hate those Shackles
Gonna kill em off tonight
Gonna cut those Shackles
Gonna cut em with my knife
Well it’s time, time to say goodbye
Cause tonight Shackles
You’re gonna die
