Track Name: Champion Sound
Fall in love with the sweetest sound
It's got a heart of glass
Every night I want a little love
I wanna shake some ass

When you look at me
I come right off my ground
I love you baby,
I wanna mess around

Speaker cable and a minor chord
We're gonna test things out
Got my pedals and my feet on the floor
We're gonna work things out

When you look at me
A strap across my back
I love you baby
I wanna make things last

But are you gonna fake the sound
(No, honey don't break my heart)
Flip the switch, the lights go bright
And say, ahhh, the boy can play guitar

But are you gonna fake the sound
(C'mon sugar don't break my heart)
Flip the switch, the lights go bright
And say, ahhh, you know the boy can really play guitar

It doesn't feel right
That's not the sound of my Champ
It doesn't feel right I wan't the sound of my amp
I want the sound of my Champ
Track Name: Good Driver Bad Actor
There you are. Sitting so pretty.
Ah, yeah, I feel it now.
You once said, we could see in our life time
What's in our here and now.
Time was that I couldn't keep rhythm
But oh, man, I feel it now
Lay it down, pound it through my thick skin
Aw yeah I'm feeling it now...

You never hurt my pride
I ain't got none
I failed you once but I'm feeling it now

Take a shot. It's a friendly motivation.
Aw, yeah, I drink it down.
You always said man, you ought get it looked at
When I said my heart's not right.
I been around now, I could give directions
Yeah, I guess I feel it now
Funny how when I think that I don't give a damn
That I finally feel it now

It never hurt my pride
I ain't got none
I failed you once but I'm feeling it now
You haven't hurt my pride
I haven't got none
I failed you once but I'm feeling it now
Track Name: Texecution
We were born among refineries
And didn't try to hide the smell
We loved your blue and open skies
The more they stank, the more brilliant they became.

Watch the towers burn all of the time
Lone stars of the afterlife
We all sing "this little light of mine"
It might flicker some but never leave its state

Texas
Texas
Texecution

The natives tend to stick together
The witnesses arrive too late
And all those jokes about the weather
Just lay there still, enjoy the thing you've got

What separates the demons from divine
All those who had enough to try
And covered up with stadium designs
Are dead men who exhausted their appeals

Texas
Texas
Texecution

Finest place you and I have ever known
Only State you and I will ever know
