Track Name: See Red
you're in my blood like this nicotine in wine
you're in my dreams like those nightmares of dying
you're a word, better left unsaid
so many colors I only see red

you're in my breath just like those magnolia trees
you're in my glass like those ice cubes that bleed
you're the sun burning holes in my eyes
the other stars, can't make me blind

you're the heat the makes my water boil
you're the drill that's got me gushing oil
you're the truth that I never tell
another lie and I'll see you in hell

you're the red line on my dial
you're the lipstick on my smile
you're a word, better left unsaid
so many colors I only see red
so many colors I only see red
so many colors I only see red
Track Name: Big Game
your cigarette is heavy as the weight of your lies
each drink is a tear you can't cry
each kiss is a desperate disguise
for the nothingness behind your eyes

but I can't stop, messing around
big game hunting going all over town
I could make a smile out of that frown
all you gotta do is turn around

equal parts poison and equal parts smoke
your makeup is a curtain but the lever is broke
boys write you songs you don't hear a note
I guess murder's all she wrote

but I can't stop, messing around
big game hunting going all over town
I could make a smile out of that frown
all you gotta do is turn around

your cigarette is heavy as the weight of your lies
each drink is a tear you can't cry
each kiss is a desperate disguise
for the nothingness behind your eyes
Track Name: Supernatural
Supernatural
what you got to be
supernatural
if you wanna be free
supernatural
what you got to be
supernatural
don’t put that evil on me

Do a line of cocaine
get yourself a rest
smoke a pack of cigarettes
forget about death
have yourself a drink
and a couple pills
russian roulette
with hundred dollar bills

chorus

hootie hoo mcjames
told old crocodile lee
we can make it to the big time
don’t put that evil on me
but croc didn’t pay no mind
and hootie called on me
put another stone in the graveyard honey
have no sympathy

chorus

all hallows eve
laid poor lee to rest
i don’t care about the big time
devil knows the rest
they call me skeleton swift
the living nightmare
say I drink cherry wine
from a rotten pear

chorus
Track Name: Too Late To Hang Me
I’m not gonna in die, in the
shadow
ain’t gonna wait at the gates of emptiness, tears streaming down my
face
clouds blowing round my head already, birds chirping at my
feet
sweetness in the eyes all around, that no evil can
keep

we all climb through the cataract of hell to say:
one drop, infinity
two, late to hang me from the same tree
three cut me down and gave me the key
four opening the pearly gates, so heavenly

I’m gonna take my sorrow, plant it in the
ground
a thousand souls above us shining on this kingdom day and
night
I could be yours, I could be your
master key
when our shadows bloom they’ll be growing in the cracks
breaking rocks, only takes a spark

chorus
Track Name: Melody
She’s got a runway
but she ain’t got no plane
too hot to snow
there’s a blizzard in her veins
she like to speed
but she don’t drive the car
she’s the kinda girl
that leaves a scar

sometimes you’re hungry
broke down flat
tired of the girls
way up on the staff
when she comes along
she hits you with a smack
graceful as the alarm clock singing
dreams won’t you come back

I came across her
in a country song
she took my words
dancing all night long
birds were calling
when she said to me
every poet
loves his melody

I said that’ god’s truth
and I gave her a kiss
opened my eyes
there was blood on my wrist
nurse told me
medics pulled me from my car
don’t trust anything
that don’t leave a scar

chorus
Track Name: Black Magic
Black magic never hurt nobody, who didn’t hurt themself
firewater never killed nobody, who loved their health
I’ll bet you ever card I have and I’ll raise you my last dime
that the woman you hold so desperately, could one day
be mine

You treat your ex like a feather in your cap
think I might take your hat
to the haberdasher make her feel brand new
Did you ever wonder why your kid’s eyes are blue

refrain

you treat your daughter like a credit card bill
think I might charge a thrill
daybreak room 504
bad news for your credit score

refrain

You say your woman gave you the backhand slip
But I know the back doors that you hit
so while you’re running round talking shit
I’ll be at her place giving her that /
Track Name: Radio
Hundred miles out of baton rouge
hit the road I’m feeling rough
went to bed in the morning light
got to get myself a beer
radio don’t work
but there’s music in my ear

this broke down truck refuse to die
so many miles since I’ve been gone
twenty miles out of baton rouge
drunk driving in high gear
radio don’t work
but there’s music in my ear

ten miles out of baton rouge
I'm trying to stay sane
wonder how life can be misused
if nothing kills the pain
radio don’t work
I still hear your name

parked by the river in Baton Rouge
blowing smoke at a yellow moon
no matter where I go I feel far away
but I always get home too soon
radio don’t work
but I got the harvest moon

Bridge:

Try to lose myself but I only lose my mind
chase my shadow til I find it every night
gas running low and the tailight’s broke
swerving cross the line
red lights flashing
but I hear the music fine

thousand miles out of Baton Rouge
found myself a stage
nothing’s changed it’s true, but I’m sure as hell gonn' play
radio don’t work
don’t need it anyway
Track Name: Lord Knows
First time she saw him, she looked in his eyes
Dark as coal
Good lord she was mesmerized
By what she didn’t know

That empty glance and those lusty eyes
Two gaping holes
His outline of unspeakable calm
Had possessed her so

Because I love you doesn’t mean that I care
Another angel bound to find you somewhere
You always said the world ain’t fair
Lord knows if it’s true

Always thought, true love was divine
Power greater than gold
My love was sanctified
And good lord she hurt me so

He was the moon and she was the tide
That ebb and flow
Never could keep her satisfied
She never could let go

CHORUS

I think about her most every night
On a hillside all alone
Happy as that day I was born
Enchanted and forlorn

CHORUS
Track Name: By Your Side
When the dust has settled
And the wind has ceased to blow
And the river’s carved it’s memory of our time
Cross the valley deep and wide, I’ll be by your side

If the lights burn out
And your songbird flies away
And there’s dead fruit hanging on your vine
You don’t have to cry, I’ll be by your side

When your tires are old and bald
And the paint starts to chip away
And your body is a patchwork of rust
I’ll still take you for a ride, I’ll be by your side
Track Name: Malaise
Malaise she come when the river’s is low
and when the well runs dry
she always needs so much from me
I never ask her why
the look she give when she comes around
is empty as the sky
the kinda look make a dead man laugh
make a wristwatch ask the time

each day I grieve and yearn
for my primrose
malaise i don’t love her at all
she surely knows
that her mother treats a poet mean
until he writes good prose
but malaise seldom gives me peace
and her mother don’t wear clothes

you looked and it was snake eyes
I found my queen of spades
each night I shoot the moon
but our child is malaise

each morning is a eulogy
for all that I don’t know
I only talk in circles
there’s other shapes to go
someday when primrose fades
with that dying sun
I’ll find my old girl hemlock
give malaise the gun
give malaise the gun
give malaise the gun

Chorus x2
Track Name: Strip Club 4x4
there's this girl I know
she likes to party hard
can't understand normal thought
but she'll outdrink you at the bar
and most people, they're just lonely
but she I and I are just too crazy to care
and if love don't love you only
the drugs will get you there

my bassist got sick from drinking
drummer drove a quad into a tree
now I'm up here in Oregon
and yessir, it's just me
and when I got that missed phone call
from four thirty am
that's when I knew
the south was gonna rise again

and it went
strip club 4x4
throwing singles like the dollar store
redneck vip
bench seats and a bag of weed
said do what you want but don't touch the wheel
only one stripper but I got a deal
cause I'm seeing double, triple or more
strip club 4x4

the weather, it was great
and the company was grand
the moral of the story
only an animal can understand
and I'm sure sorry for Jeff
riding in the back the whole time
you can't have that much fun
until, you lose your mind

and it goes
strip club 4x4
throwing singles like the dollar store
redneck vip
bench seats and a bag of weed
said do what you want but don't touch the wheel
only one stripper but I got a deal
cause I'm seeing double, triple or more
strip club 4x4
