Track Name: Winter Sun/Agent of the Custom
Good Afternoon
Stranger’s Son
You ask to yourself
What it is I have become?
Well, I've grown to be strong
and I've
grown to be brave
and I've grown
to never underestimate the
power of my name

Good Afternoon Sir,
how is your day?
What am I currently doing?
Well I'm currently
Overeducated and Underpaid

My brothers back home
told me to come
Said that if I worked real hard, maybe I could go real far
I never listed those
as objectives on my resume.

Nobody ever told me
that being free would be
so hard.

Good Afternoon.
Immigrant Son,
Though you wear that suit
I know exactly where you come from.
Your mother and I were
schoolgirls back then
and
we dreamt of coming
to this land to start
again.
He says good afternoon Ms.
there's a gap in your resume
I said I know....

See I've been through
this funny little thing
have you heard of war?
My brothers back home
are dying for oil,
I'm not too certain,
I think it's at 87 dollars a barrel
now.
I fill my tank everyday
and I think of them.

Nobody ever told me
that being free would be
so hard.

I am just an agent of the custom where
I'm sorry I'm just doing my job and doing it
well.
I am just an agent of the custom
and I'm sorry I can't do the things
you need me to today.

I am just an agent of the custom,
and I'm not too certain that you fit
the guidelines.
I am just an agent of the custom,
and I've done my best,
I'm sorry,
I don't give a damn...
Track Name: Love
Although we've never met as such
I am certain we belong.
Though we have never met as such
I am certain that we are loved.

Could you have even known?
The things that you would grow
would ever come to be?
Could you have ever known
that you would grow to love me?

They said child, keep running to your future
but I have first this past to claim.

Take me to the place where you grew up
Take me to the place where you made
not rights,
but all your wrongs.

See I desperately wish to know
all about you life well before
I came along...

Could you ever have known
that you would grow these things to be?
Could we have ever known
that you would grow to love me?

Oh, I know that you love me so
these past 20 years or so
you've been working every day
working hard now to provide
working hard to be a guide
working hard to show
love.

Oh, you know that I love you so,
these next 20 years or so,
I will work hard every day.
I will work hard to provide,
I will work to be a guide to show
love.

Child, keep running to your future
but I have first this past to claim.
