Tristan The production may be more lavish and elaborate than previous works, but it's still backed up by the same passionate songwriting and rustically soulful vocals. Favorite track: Amboy Crater.

Holding On 03:06
Holding on I am holding Holding on for you Holding on for you Keeping on I am keeping on Keeping on for you Keeping on for you I don’t want to go numb But that’s exactly what I’ve done I want to stay young But I’ve grown old I want to fly Like in every dream but then I die Yea Holding on I am holding Holding on for you Holding on for you Keeping on I am keeping on Keeping on for you Keeping on for you I’ve been feeling so dumb What the hell have I done Going numb don’t make you bold I’d rather die Than going on living a lie Yea Every monster has his line All these tourists camera fine My whole family’s dying And I’ve screwed up trying Holding on I am holding on Holding on for you

Ghostly 03:08
I will weep On soiled ground Though I have turned The wicked round It seems my brain Is left to rot Rot in half The other not But I ain’t coming home To see my bride She’s dead and gone On the other side I will creep By the willow tree Hold my breath As if to see Her ghostly Idle hands Will learn to dance When I sell my soul At the crossroads Seems the devil Has come to pass Pass over me To everlast But I ain’t coming home To keep my pride To let it grip Like the wretch inside I will creep By the willow tree Hold my breath As if to see Her Ghostly My love is gone I will hold darkly To her memory Even if I see Her ghostly I’ll cut down the willow tree

Amboy Crater 03:44
One hand on the wheel I am Driving through desert land Oh those Joshua trees They were holding you They were holding me Dam that Amboy crater
You love her you hate her
I’m not sure if I’m gonna make it Can you hand me a blanket Landing at the Grand Canyon We kick back we’re singing Wind blows over our cliff Death is a drink and trip Yeah bought a big bud three buck Hit hard and up chuck
The Tetons were laughing at me
I laugh back and swim in the sea The light shine Yeah the sun burn down on me It’s so hard to see Where my life’s going How my time goes so quickly It’s so hard to be
4.
I was just a boy Shooting at the lake Ending lives A weep would overtake I’ve been burdened by a love In the Montana grace I am burdened by a serial Comical waste And I don’t know where To go from here Bones hold me up Don’t tie me down I’m all fed up Stuck in this town Church on every corner I’m sick of the sound When the music’s over I can’t be found And I don’t know where To go from here Here we are again All up in arms again It was a story when We were there And these memories They will mean nothing you see If I just let them be And not teach me
