Track Name: Pretty Bones
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.
Track Name: The Stone
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.
Track Name: Make Things Right
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.
Track Name: Farfetched
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
Track Name: Butterfy Bullets
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
