Track Name: Affliction
AFFLICTION
by Big Kettle Drum

I close my eyes to avoid my affliction
I turn my back to escape your stare
I’ve been seduced by mortal addiction
With a kiss and a fistful of hair

Keep those poison lips all to yourself
I don’t need your love to save me from myself

I run away from the Garden of Eden
I slap the truth out from your hand
I’ve been deceived by my own conviction
And a woman from the promised land

Keep those poison lips all to yourself
I don’t need your love to save me from myself

I hear you calling...

Keep those poison lips all to yourself
I don’t need your love to save me from myself
Track Name: Ordinary Life
ORDINARY LIFE
by Big Kettledrum

I’m calling out all of the beautiful people
With your perfect smile and your shiny hair
You’re way too pretty to start a fight
So you draw your blood with an angel’s bite

I’m calling out all of the beautiful people
With your luring eyes and your heavenly scent
You’re getting drunk on rapt devotion
You’re getting high off my emotions

CHORUS
You don’t know just what its like
To live an ordinary life
You don’t know just what its like
To live my ordinary life

I’m calling out all the beautiful people
Who always get just what they want
If you ever walked a mile only to lose
You’d feel the hole in the soul of my shoes

CHORUS
You don’t know just what its like
To live an ordinary life
You don’t know just what its like
To live my ordinary life

BRIDGE
You walk by without a glance
but you are sure to take your chance
to kick me while I’m down

CHORUS
You don’t know just what its like
To live an ordinary life
You don’t know just what its like
To live my ordinary life
Track Name: Talk About Suffering
TALK ABOUT SUFFERING

Talk about suffering here below
Let's keep falling on Jesus
Talk about suffering here below
Let's keep falling on Jesus

Oh the gospel train is coming
Don't you want to go?
And leave this world of sorrow
And suffering here below

Talk about suffering here below
Let's keep calling on Jesus
Talk about suffering here below
Let's keep calling on Jesus

Oh can't you hear it mother
Don't you want to go?
And leave this world of sorrow
And suffering here below

Talk about suffering here below
Let's keep loving on on Jesus
Talk about suffering here below
Let's keep loving on on Jesus

Oh can't you hear it father
Don't you want to go?
And leave this world of sorrow
And suffering here below
Track Name: If I Give My Soul
IF IF GIVE MY SOUL
by Billy Joe Shaver

Down a dangerous road, I have come to where I'm standing
With a heavy heart,and my hat clutched in my hand
Such a foolish man, God ain't known no greater sinner
I have come in search of Jesus,hoping he will understand

I had a woman once,she was kind and she was gentle
Had a child by me,who grew up to be a man
I had a steady job,til I started into drinking
Started into music playing with the devil's band

Oh the years flew by like a mighty rush of eagles
My dreams and plans were all scattered in the wind
It's a lonesome life,when you lose the ones you live for
If I make my peace with Jesus will he take me back again

If i give my soul,will he stop my hands from shaking
If i give my soul,will my son love me again
If i give my soul,and she knows i really mean it
If i give my soul to Jesus will she take me back again

If I give my soul,will he clean these clothes I'm wearin'
If I give my soul,will he put new boots on my feet
If I bow my head and beg God for his forgiveness
Will he breathe new breath inside me and give back my dignity
