Track Name: lost
looky here & looky there
the side walk is spinning
& so is my head
the story is spun
it's spun like wire
i find comfort in a pair of sad eyes

i'm lost
i feel so lost way down in my soul

knocked out & loaded
another dog gone stray
just a sucka been used
like an old ash tray
i've been talking
talking real fast
but no talking ever made a thing last

i'm lost
i feel so lost way down in my soul

another coin in the juke box
another coin down the well
my fingers are crossed
i'm l-l-l-l-l-lost

sweet satisfaction
sweeter than wine
thats why i look at you
and take my sweet time
that's how i take it
t-t-take it in my stride
don't call me a thief
i'm just claiming what's mine

i'm lost
i feel so lost way down in my soul
Track Name: meltdown
someone's been picking from the ground ground ground
along the way the picks went down down down
the moon cried lightening in the woods woods woods
they got to sleep before i could could could

and i can barely keep my mind
at the best of times

the silver river running still still still
the mayor was laughing on the hill hill hill
when i woke up my ride was gone gone gone
the final bus would find me home home home

and i can barely keep my mind
at the best of times
Track Name: wait on rain
what it was
and what it was going to be
ain't what it is
or what it is going to be

i held a useless hand
but my number's coming up

wait on rain

comparisons
sow the seeds of envy
no comparisons
no envy

i held a useless hand
my number's coming up

wait on rain
Track Name: LA dream
LA dream
Its your LA dream

You're Fantastic
Dangerous, Drastic
with your empty birdcage
your plastic toys
and all that noise
you sold me out for your

LA dream
It's your LA dream

you use to call me
now you don't call me
you've got your empty birdcage
plastic toys
and all that noise
yep, you sold me out for your

LA dream
It's your LA dream
Track Name: i hope i'm there
ain't it funny
someone so full of ash
never harboured fire

ain't it funny
you're the least funny joke
i've ever heard

I just hope I'm there
for it
when it all goes down

one day you'll wake up
and you'll be stone cold sober
or you know...
maybe you won't

i just think its funny
someone so full of ash
never harboured fire

so i hope i'm there
for it
when it all goes down
Track Name: 4mjh
please don't flash that mirror in my face
please don't flash that mirror in my face
I beg you darling, I'll just turn away
please don't flash that mirror in my face

darling, please don't make me look back now
darling, please don't make me look back now
ain't nothing I done that I can erase
darling, please don't make me look back now

please don't ask to know what's on my mind
please don't ask to know what's on my mind
i'll stomp your heart with the words i find
please don't ask to know what's on my mind

i do believe i'll never own a home
i do believe i'll never own a home
i can't afford it & i was born to roam
i do believe i'll never own a home

time is up, i've drained my last here beer
time is up, i've drained my last here beer
i'm on that next plane that's moving out of here
time is up, i've drained my last here beer
Track Name: dream
dream, dream
the sweetest dream
where there's you
& no one else but me

when i wake at noon
it always feels too soon
everyone says its true
i "need to get out"
my health is failing me
i haven't left bed in a week
i just want to sleep it off
where i can dream

dream, oh dream,
the sweetest dream
where there's you
& no one else but me
Track Name: sunday morning coming down (episode 2)
bnjmn:

blood in my mouth
blood in my hair
i know i'm alive
i just don't know where

k8y:

baby, won't you come on home?

bnjmn:

cash in the wind
my memory too
i'm living a lie
and its coming true

k8y:

baby, won't you come on home?
i just want to see this thing done right

bnjmn: i just want to see the sun go down
Track Name: nightmare smoke
nightmare smoke
nightmare steel
clogging up my worried mind

but i feel alright
i feel fine
anytime you're on my mind
i feel fine
i feel alright
anytime you're on my mind
Track Name: cracker rat
welcome back
the cracker rat
I break my bank
but not my back
and I'll break a little
then I'll break a little off
for you

lift my spirit
come down from the pole
I wanna know your name
take you home
I wanna learn from you honey
I wanna learn from how you do

If I’m a spit some truth
I’m in over my head
I think the HiWatt blew
and I’m in over my head
in over my head

never call my home phone
always leave the porch light on
'cause I care for you honey
like I care for Lizzie
And Crystal too

I’m a swindler
A highway man
A new age backyard business plan
But my hours are off the grid

If I’m a spit some truth
I’m in over my head
I think the HiWatt blew
And I’m in over my head
In over my head
