Track Name: Get a job
when i'm going kind of slow
when i'm on my last legs
would you make me laugh

when i'm going kind of slow
when i'm on my last legs
would you get a day job for me?

would you smile away
go to work every day
and make me laugh while you got paid

because i am all for equality
but i really do like my liberty
if you say yes to me
if you make me laugh

if you say yes to me

if you get a day job

when i'm on my last legs
when i'm going kind of slow
would you get a day job for me
would you smile away and make me laugh while you got paid

god give me a cold

god give my lungs to grace
god give my lungs away

god deliver me from devotion and faith
Track Name: Weight
and if we knew all the things we'd have to take
onto our shoulders we would break beneath the weight
and so we lift with our legs, see what we can take
we do it slowly over weeks we wait and wait

if you could feel all the pounds on my waist
all the fuel i've burned, all that's gone to waste
if you could fill out my bones and fill my plate
please do it slowly over weeks i'll take the weight

and if you knew all the love i'd like to make
you'd run away...or maybe you'd stay
i'll put my back into it, i won't go away
i'll do it slowly over weeks i'll wait and wait

and if i could tell you how i struggle with the wait
want it to be over need an end to come, it always feels so late
i want to know all i can, test my faith
before it's over, let it be over, i can't wait.
Track Name: Mettle
oh how our mettle gets tested
oh i'm good at tests
oh how our mettle gets tested
oh you know i'm a safe bet

oh there i go again
i made a big mess
sorry for the mess

oh i don't know i get sentimental i guess
how our mettle gets tested
