Track Name: KillTheParty!!
Kill the party
Welcome everybody.. welcome to the current.. as in events.. As in the moment that led us to this moment that brings us together and in sync… As in synchronicity…. As in The lights that light this city came on at the precise moment that I had a thought.. I should be having a drink… And tonight… this drink…. This drink is gonna have a m*th* f*ck*ng current..
keep your head up…. Go with the flow
I think it’s gonna take all night long…. Tomorrow and then some Everybody’s gotta pay their dues… nothing new.. And everybody’s got a short short fuse And somebody’s always striking matches.. and sooner than later the fire catches Everybody’s looking concerned.. but you know we all wanna watch this m*tha F*cker burn
Well everybody drink and drown tonight these walls are coming down tonight Police are coming out tonight Nobody’s getting out tonight…. Alive
All I need is another good one liner.. to set the mood for another hot one nighter And a backbeat knocking these girls off their shoes.. music engineered to give your mama the blues And my beat runs.. from city to city… coast to coast.. And my camera phone keeps snapin’ photos of folks throwin’ stones and lightin’ Fires in store windows
Well everybody drink and drown tonight these walls are coming down tonight Police are coming out tonight Nobody’s getting out tonight…. Alive
Track Name: DirtDevil
DIRT DEVIL
It’s been too many nights.. in the New Mexico desert And I’m turning into a dirt devil
And I can’t seem to keep my teeth from showin’ Nobody can keep the wind from blowin’ Whichever way the wind blows Those tumble weeds are sure to roll

Look what the wind blew in.. you and I we’re just dirt blowin’ in the wind – Time is nothing, but mine is everything 28 days later I can’t remember anything – And I’ve got soul, but I’m a whirlwind Another year spent waiting for the leaves to leave the trees again – Another sunset I’m crawling home at dawn I’ll sweat two-fifths of Jack before the mornings gone – Days of our lives, sands in an hour glass weeks fly by but the days feel like they’ll never pass – Like you and I nothing here was meant to last – Another day another dollar another drink another empty glass.

Whichever way the wind blows those tumbleweeds are sure to roll
Whichever way that I roam those storm clouds are sure to roll

Followed my heart long way from the city Now it’s buried underneath the thistle and weeds Paper casket, skipped the eulogy
And then I made my way down to the river
Oh glory halleluiah
But I wondered off into the deep end
Been off the wagon every single week since
Whichever way the wind blows those tumbleweeds are sure to roll
Whichever way that I roam those storm clouds are sure to roll
Track Name: Love&a45.
LOVE & A 45
In an old gold Chevy we raced, down route 66 Another night spent running, trying to get away from our sins Well I looked back and all I could see was those bright flashing lights Well, looks like it’s gonna be another one of those nights I slowly rolled my window down, and reached for the revolver I keep under the seat But my baby’s to fast, she too fast for me Looks like I might get to keep my conscience clean A little further up the road she turned to me and said “What is it dear”? I said, baby we gotta get the hell out of here
She said, push that Goddamned pedal down to the floor push that Goddamned pedal down to the floor push that Goddamned pedal down to the floor give me some more
Well, all we’ve ever known is running from those flashing lights, those dark desert highways and those cold clear midnight skies As long as it’s me and you As long as it’s you and I we’ll be alright
We’ll honey don’t make a wish that aint no falling star It’s just the spot light from the ghetto bird as she sings in the dark Don’t look now but I think I see the end of the road give me a kiss for good luck push that goddamned pedal and go
She said, push that Goddamned pedal down to the floor push that Goddamned pedal down to the floor push that Goddamned pedal down to the floor give me some more
Track Name: TheDuel
THE DUEL
We met on a Sunday.. middle of the afternoon You could call it a duel if you wanted to She comes with both guns blazing Oh when she sets her sights on something new I was on my knees praying to god that jesus would have room in his heart for me too She looked like a godess until she opened up her eyes Underneath those pretty eyelashes the fire of Hades was burning inside Father forgive me Heaven knows how I tried Heaven knows you tried to warn me But Hell you know I like a good fight Hey girl show me them teeth if you think that love should be a little bloody Love should be a little bloody Can’t always be sunny She said “hey boy wanna see these teeth, wanna see me howling” I do think we need to wait for the dirt to settle before let that forked tongue out to play before you try to put the fear of god inside me, before were elbow deep into the fray, before we’ve gone our separate ways, before my face is in the chardonnay Show me those teeth
Track Name: LetMeGo
Let Me Go
I know I said come hell or high water but when it’s time for me to go You Know I’m gonna be kicking in windows and kicking in doors When it’s time for me to go Just let me go
Stuck in a hole.. I think I built myself
We love so hard we’ve got the drywall falling on us - It aint snow.. it’s the ashes of our love story falling on - But I got one love, and that’s the sound of my own two feet on the - And I’m never gonna get enough.. Never gonna quit kicking gravel up Every night I’m gonna rock another gritty club - And I don’t care if you think I don’t give a F*** - Leaving cracks in the road is how I get it up - I’m a tumble weed that’s how I go whichever way the wind blows that’s how I roll - And it blows so hard that its got my eyes wide open, My emotions set in motion and Now there’s bottles broken - little by little my conscience is eroding my mind is corroded my memory so distorted when I think back to where I’ve been I hit the bottle and I’m blacking out again I don’t know where I’m going but I know where I’ve been and I aint going down that county road again
Track Name: B O N E S
B O N E S
You left me with nothing, but my bones n’they creak and crackle all night long to the rhythm of her heartbeat I’m the walking symphony and like a phantom I waltz these city streets to sleep I’ve been holding my breath for so long I’ve forgotten how to speak I’m so sorry you mistook the rising and falling of my chest to be signs of life You should’ve known.. I’ve been coughing up dust since the first day we met Should’ve known better than praying for a miracle You should’ve drove a stake through my chest years ago.. if only I had a heart to aim for Sit with me We’ll watch the sun come up It’ll all be over soon I’m turning to ashes Just close your Eyes Make a wish and blow Let’s not go on pretending like this was something cause’ you know by the time that I’ve seen the moon has come up tomorrow I’ll be dragging home another nothing I’ve got no heart and I’ve got no pulse I aint got a single reason to breath I just do how I do Play how I play Pretending that I’m breathing I’ve been holding my breath for so long I’ve forgotten how to speak I’m so sorry you mistook the rising and falling of my chest to be signs of life You should’ve known.. I’ve been coughing up dust since the first day we met Should’ve known better than praying for a miracle She drove a stake through my chest years ago.. if only I had a heart to aim for Wouldn’t be the first time.. Wouldn’t be the first time that I.. Wouldn’t be the first time that I lied… Wouldn’t be the first time that I lied about being alive
Track Name: S i g n Of The T i m e s
S I G N OF THE T I M E S
I don’t think we’re gonna make it out of this on alive People running in the streets just running wild I told my baby brother I think it’s just a sign of the times.. and he said “We’re gonna do what we gotta do, we’re gonna do what do to survive” he said “ Oh no, there’s never been a time like now” Now I know better than believing everything I read, but the lady whispering through my screen door is telling me “turn off the tele, open the door.. child what’d you think them arms were for” She said “put your hands together and echo every word that I am breathing out” she said “I think I know the way out” You know I like how that sounded… so I put my hands together and echoed every word that she was breathing out and I think I saw the way out.. I knew right then that these two feet belong on the ground Oh no! There’s never been a time like now!
Track Name: COLORfuLWORLD
COLORFUL WORLD
Well u better think twice..cause’ u got another thing coming if u think your gonna be getting me out of this one anytime soon.. you better be more than a man.. cause if your anything less than a deity I’m not listening.. but if you wanna here my story I’ll need another drink and my nicotine.. - And you better have time cause’ it’s probably gonna be a little and where probably gonna need a shovel.. and a couple of hours just digging away.. Dig –dig Down-down Deep-deep in my chest -Where my black heart used to rest.. - We were two in accord.. a pair of soiled doves digging in the dirt till it bled aw.. its such a colorful world with a belly full of worms yea… they wiggled to the minuet in my head.. Never felt as alive as I do in the shadow of the baphomet - Looking at her was a lot like looking at me.. Narcissism never looked so good on me . she wiggled like it aint no thang
Its such a colorful world…. Id like it better if I was pulling the strings
Its such a colorful world… I’ll like it better when I am pulling the strings
Its such a colorful world…. I like it better when I am pulling the strings
Track Name: Angel Of Death
AngelOfDeath
There she stood .. just like a hero With the sun setting behind her she looked like and angel.. of death Here to take me away I guess I should’ve seen it coming from a mile away From up in outer space Nothing here was meant to last for too long at a time like this I wish their were a god to save me from myself It’s getting so hard to tell the nights apart from the days, months apart from the years, the joys apart from the fears, the difference between the Winter and the Spring.. You’re the difference between the Summer and the Autumn leaves and I know I’m so much better off without you But I’d rather sink to the bottom of the sea without you And so I’m gonna lift this bottle to my face til’ it turns black and blue I’m gonna drink and drown my way to the bottom of this next bottle and then I’m gonna call you There’s no telling what I’m gonna say….
Track Name: These Walls
These Walls
People say what they wanna You know these walls tend to speak But God knows how I tend to get this part of the week Gotta get both hands on a bottle One that’s deep enough for me Some people gotta get away once in a while, but me.. I gotta get away every Goddamned night of the week and I can’t sit still for very long These neon sign they just feel like home Everybody says “boy keep it up and you’ll die… you’ll die alone” Everybody says “boy keep it up boy, keep it up yeah go go go” but my momma says “boy keep it up and you’ll die alone”
I’m gonna go go go until the lights come on and curtain closes
