Pretty Bones 04:09
I've been broke down on the road without you by my side I've been choking on the blues and those feelings just aint right when the morning comes around and those windows shed a light it's the same thing everyday, I just want you by my side. Well my engines running rough and my wheels shedding skin locked myself out of your heart no spare key to let me in when the night comes trickling down and those spirits bustle in it's the same thing every night, I want you to come back in. Come back in pretty mamma, come back into my life come back in pretty mamma, come back in deep inside deep inside this house of love, I can't live here all alone come back in pretty mamma, and rest your pretty bones. Well your tough as a leather bull and wild as the night but my soul is incomplete when those lonesome times arise they may say with wise words it's the best time to analyze but my thoughts are trickling back, from my worried mind and I will walk this ancient land, maybe I'll find you till the day I turn to dust I will always burn for you it's a curse it's the worst, all the love I have for you till you come back pretty mamma, all my blues are coming true.

The Stone 05:08
They build the wind and the rain, branded in curse that froze times blood in stone. Incasted in Cain, safe guard by my queen bee. The truth can be crippling and cold. But let us be grateful, for without the fateful that's punished for insurrecting the gods of fire and doom, curse hid the sweet truth forbidden fruit within the vines. And trying to find my home, feels like drawing blood from a stone. Trying to overcome what can never be undone. Oh don't ever, say never. They build those castles on high, granted we'll all die one day but I wouldn't worry my poor self to sleep. I don't want to move on, I don't want to be strong, just let me be. I look forward not to live in memories. Resistance defined by the dawning of pride scarred your resentment in stone. Resigned from salvation, we kindle foundation and watch over ramparts through the vines. And trying to find my home, feels lie drawing blood from a stone. Trying to overcome what can never be undone. Oh don't ever say never, don't ever say never, don't ever say never.

I don't know what I have to offer anymore take apart my heart tell you I don't know what I'm looking for up into my brain where there is nothing left for me wasted all my time on this impossible dream. All these faces are staring back at me it's so hard to get a long in this world of variety the stars aint aligning with the gypsy carolina you're going through hell at best it's just bad timing but there ain't no way to make things right we fight and we fight and we always lose sight the moon aint glowing, I got to keep going I'm going through hell with you tonight. So stomp your feet and sip your wine breathe in deep and burn like the sunshine I know it's all been done before I know it's all been sung might as well raise some hell and have ourselves a little fun I can see your silhouette as you walk away from me this poetry I have for you inside is killing me I'm a long way from home and the rustling trees the ember in your eyes is burning all my fallen leaves but there aint no way to make things right we fight and we fight and we always lose sight. the moon aint glowing but I got to keep going I'm going through hell with you tonight. My thoughts are as shady as a tree under the ground got my ticket outta here yea I'm nowhere to be found I aint changing my style aint letting go of my ways I'm better then I was before if I was born yesterday time lays a mask upon the worlds pretty face layered with the attributes of feeling so outta place digging from the ground I sing a song up to the night it's so beautiful to be alive I don't know how to make it right I don't know how to make things right we fight and we fight and we always lose sight. the moon aint glowing but I got to keep going I'm going through hell with you tonight.

Farfetched 03:36
I've been broken, I've been lost I've been stolen from my thoughts and the magic sits inside sleeping eyes that open wide Through the thicket of my mind burned bridges, broken lines and the shadows of the past meet the ghost of ever last through the ravished moon light the end of the road i'll embrace the burning sun as my soul grows old, gonna chase down my hopeless and burn madly till I die Mama captivates the crowd with intentions oh so loud that she wants to be so good to the ones she never could and you do the best you can though you can't please every man and you fall into the spell thinking life on earth is hell and the forests in your mind getting cut down all the time and the seeds grow under ground where the devil can be found, but I forgave him and moved on to burn madly till I die I'm gonna chase the farfetched lines the unbearable designs and the irritating wrath of the impossible path though I know it seems absurd but I can't hear any words when you tell me that can't be the one I know I am and the blue birds in the sky asking you to come and fly I am free and I have chose leave the shadows of the ghost to chase down my hopeless and burn madly till I die I've been broken, I've been lost I've been stolen from my thoughts and the magic sits inside sleeping eyes that open wide Through the thicket of my mind burned bridges, broken lines and the shadows of the past meet the ghost of everlast through the ravished moon light the end of the road i'll embrace the burning sun as my soul grows old gonna chase down my hopeless and burn madly till I die

Just another dreary day and I'm walking down the street my hat is blowing off my head and people stepping on feet I'm just a blues man with a rimbaud stare I got this guitar to get me somewhere I said vroom vroom vroom gonna light up your room this kid is gonna make it, don't try to debate it your satellite dishes and your telephone wire your internet service gonna set it on fire with the boom box, top notch, DJ pop rocks skip the video, kitty come and see the show look up when the days done and dream before you sleep the message that I send ya, like a fendah bendah cuz even when the darkness of life is thick my soul is thicker, sticky like a sticker got the beat, I got the beat like a sandals on my feet it's not a flip flop, I won't stop not even when the bomb drops there's a city inside my soul I'm alone here won't you take me I'm alone there's a pasture I long to roam I'm alone won't you take me, I'm alone And after quite a while of being broken on the road I know the clarity and loneliness will find me a home everything grows deeper all the energy feels nice the mountain just got steeper aint no use in asking why I'm just a foolin myself and I'm stuck on the shelf this give a damn, shake a hand, riding on the city tram falling asleep, waiting for the beep just a daydreaming sitting in my subway seat gotta little itch I need to releive need to let it all out before I leave I said one, two, three, come with me just a bound for glory, telling my story if your feeling really hot go ahead and pick a spot next to me on my stage, it's my parking lot my target is a trigger, it don't get any bigger feeling really naughty, think it's time to start the party got the cure I got the lure and i'll give you the tour this stuff is potent this stuff is pure there's a city inside my soul I'm alone here won't you take me I'm alone there's a pasture I long to roam I'm alone won't you take me, I'm alone have you noticed our chemistry, I've noticed your symmetry take away my blues wrap me up in your poetry stealing the show every time you blow on the pitch pipe, man your bananas are so ripe daylight come I don't want to go home daylight come I don't want to go home I just a watch you dance with the devil in your pants the tambourine man is gonna water your plants growing on up in a room in the ritz stick stars in your snatches and you shake em to bits I got a box car baby on a train about a mile long with a back door baby on a train about a mile long shake it if u want you rattle with me all night long there's a city inside my soul I'm alone here won't you take me I'm alone there's a pasture I long to roam I'm alone won't you take me, I'm alone
