Promise Land by Ezra Vancil Well I get up Start my day take a moment to erase every thing that went on the night before and I get drunk or take a pill try to find the place I still Love the rain Do that thing I dug before Are you gonna save me do you know where I am everyday a picture fading of the promise land can you entertain the ghost of who I was Every day a new day every way the same old shit I’m sunk without a tank no good Karma in the bank every vice name the price and I’m the store For this heart can’t buy a thrill and my mind already filled with the rain and sustaining of the war Are you gonna save me do you know where I am everyday a picture fading of the promise land can you entertain the ghost of who I was Every day a new way every way the same old shit I’m sunk Every way a new day every way the same way I’m just drunk, had my fill try to find the place I still Love the rain dig that thing I dug before. credits

Take me with you by Ezra Vancil / Ezra/Thomas I wasn't looking back I thought your key had locked the door this time for sure an angel painted black and a devil for the cure each night endure My ways are writ in stone and I struggle through the page each night I pay and now you're leaving home if there is no other way just go don’t stay But take me with you, I’m not hard to carry Take me with you, I could be your souvenir Take me with you take me with you where ya go from here The years are all too soon and too late to ever change these things we do your rocket to the moon and my ticket at the gate won’t let me through take me with you, I’m not hard to carry take me with you, fold me up and dry your tears take me with you, I’m not very heavy take me with you take me with you where ya go from here where ya go from here to the place that u go and you know you've always been from the deepest of dark to the heart you love again why did I go from the grace of love that would never end oh I dream of your face and the ?? of your skin I wasn't looking back where ya go from here where ya go from here

Holiday 04:21
Holiday by Ezra Vancil & Ezra/Thomas I’m giving up I’m breaking through for a moment I was satisfied within the truth I’m packing heat I’m on your street at the corner or the grocery store you're looking sweet I’m seventeen I’m on your screen ya your daddy’s little favorite whore is waiting here just for you Everyday’s a holiday just waiting for you Everyday’s a holiday I’m on the floor I’m counting change but tonight I’ll be flying high the golden vein I need a cure I need the pain cause it reminds me that I’ll never be the same ya i’ll never be the same Everyday’s a holiday just waiting for you Everyday’s a holiday Give me shelter for my shame give me demons in my veins give me fever when I’m breaking up and love beyond my gain give me comfort, sex and pain give me poison in the rain give me nothing cause this not enough is something more than I can take Everyday’s a holiday just waiting for you Everyday’s a holiday just waiting for you Everyday

Paper Sky 04:08
Paper Sky by Ezra Vancil Paper sky plastic moon built my world and nothing true except regret even rain ain’t wet years will change, poverty, fame but rescue me love when it all looks the same to you calling angels across invisible telephone line Pushing tables Like i'm a ghost that I want you to find And shine your love glitter stars, Styrofoam toy cars we’re driving home with open doors see the sawdust shores all that shines is cold and dark so rescue me love with your beating heart I’m through calling angels across invisible telephone line Pushing tables Like i’m a ghost that I want you to find And shine your love Paper sky, plastic moon Built a world I thought would keep you close to me But you lost the key Life is long tell me I’m wrong but rescue me love before I am gone see me..... calling angels Like i’m a ghost that I want you to find And shine your love I want you to find And shine your love I want you to find And shine your love I want you to find And shine your love credits

If I Didn't Know God is Good by Ezra Vancil If I didn’t know God is good If I didn’t have that understood, If I didn’t know God was good I’d just lay down in my box of wood If I didn’t know there is something more than this life everyones dying for I would be swimming of the deepest shore All these lines in my face something seems so out of place like we were meant for something better but i know that’s just the way of faith the innocent cries and all the incidental lives if I didn’t know better Then i’d wonder why we even try If I didn’t know the shape I’m in If I didn’t know this heart of sin If I didn’t know the shape i’m in I would sink down into my shallow skin All these lines in my face something seems so out of place like we were meant for something better but i know that’s just the way of faith the innocent cries and all the incidental lives if I didn’t know better Then i’d wonder why we even try

Mortal Days 04:10
Mortal Days by Ezra Thomas Recording by Ezra Vancil & aaron Thomas Produced By Mark Hallman It’s a traffic jam 8 a.m and i’m singing every song I ever heard and up in the distance I see a river flowing and something in me stirs and whoever said nine to five that’s like seventy percent of my waking life in the hands of another man’s plans beneath fluorescent lights If I could break away from these mortal days If I could find a place where time would wait for me time wait for me Well it looks like it’s gonna be another one of those nights working late beneath fluorescent lights and I’d much rather be in bed… with my lover resting my head telling stories till the morning light and we wonder why our father’s don’t know their sons and we wonder why our children play with guns and we wonder all these things in front of our TV’s and then we wonder when the next show is coming on If I could break away from these mortal days If I could find a place where time would wait for me Someday we’re going to see blue skies waiting, above the lights Someday we’re going to see blue skies ahh, above the lights someday we’re gonna see blue sky If I could break away from these mortal days If I could find a place where time would wait for me
