Track Name: Uncross Your Arms
As faded years go
My smile is wide, it's ear to ear
I feel alright boy

I finally feel her
My loans are paid every thirty days or so
The debted years are done at last



Are you living?
Are you dead?
Are you with me?
Are you in there?
Then hold in those sighs
And don't roll your eyes at me
And find out windows open doors
If you're waiting, then what for?
Just let down your guard and uncross your arms

A family tree grows
It's roots run deep with fertile soil in fields in me
It takes a while to realize sometimes
But when spells break we see inside with magnified eyes

Track Name: It Hasn't Yet
This inflation
Higher wages
Get the lead out
Broken hearted growing gardens practice patience

Been feeling heavy now for some time
I feared the weight might just snap my line

But it hasn't yet
It hasn't yet

Family members
Mams and Misters
Fathers and mothers
Sons and daughters
Strong as my sister bright as my brother

Art and commerce
Falling dollars
Where does the buck start?
Strike it rich with given gifts it's such a long shot

And when it happens there'll be goldmines
And flashing dollar signs in my eyes

But it hasn't yet
It hasn't yet
It hasn't yet
No not yet

As is my luck
Thought I'd have some say
When not even one came
I'd fret and fuss
But soon it will come
