"Off The Trail" by the 'Mericans you're a welcome sight even though you burn our eyes i'm a little crusty and i think i'm losing it i went off of the trail bound to run into myself bound to talk to myself do i even have the strength to make it to the gates of Graceland i'm a little crusty and i'm really hungry i went off of the trail bound to run into myself bound to talk to myself i went off of the trail bound to talk to myself bound to run into myself

"To Find Favor" by the 'Mericans to find favor enjoying sorrow is like like you're winning at everything is like like you might think you've been born again to find strength often comes after the longest and hardest like Sunday mornin' often comes after a hell of a Saturday night to find my head is working slower but the words seem sharper like you're winning at everything like you might think you've been born again like you're winning at everything born again like you might think you've been born again . . .

What To Wear 03:32
"What To Wear" by the 'Mericans for me to try harder my shoes are too cold to think for me to find someone show me the way if i only knew what to wear it's hard to learn lessons of the farmer to pick up you're dirty clothes you're at the sign you wear a costume you're at the parting of the soul you don't tell them what they wanna hear cos it'll only lose you along the way well, i remember from the very beginning you always held a special place you still hold onto my heart and i want for nothing more for you to hold on i hand it over to you and i give it over to you and i send it out to you and i give it to . . .
