Tristan The production may have taken a turn towards something more lavish and elaborate than previous works, but it's still backed up by the same passionate songwriting and rustically soulful vocal performance. Favorite track: Amboy Crater.

Track Name: Holding On
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
Track Name: Ghostly
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
Track Name: Amboy Crater
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
Track Name: All Up In Arms
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
