Cowboy's Juke Joint Radio Wow. Within a few songs this is easily my favorite album and I love everything you do. Love the drums on the opening track. Adeline sounds like something from the 90's. Almost choose that as my favorite until I heard Edge of Time. Just very nice. Favorite track: Edge of Time.

Devil came up Devil Came up Devil Came up on the drawing board

Devil came up on the drawing board Gotta motor mouth all the way down to the floor Just a rattle and gamble and mop up the mess Gotta ride those blinds just to pay your debt Light my day up like a cigarette Burnin holes in my pocket, make a million back Your the one bad habit that I can't regret The evils so good I be smoking in the devils bed Been a long time, been a long time Been a long time, been way too long Study your man, study your wife Study your world, study your life Study your weak, study your strong Cause you know I don't wear straw shoes strutting along I got a matchbox baby that'll hold my own Just a broke down engine start a revolution I'm gonna beat my chest till my heart falls out Cause I know a little evil won't do without I know a little evil won't do without I know a little evil won't do without Been a long time, been a long time Been a long time, been way too long Study your man, study your wife Study your world, study your life Study your weak, study your strong Cause you know I don't wear straw shoes strutting along Drive it all the way to vacationland I got back seat lover try to hold my hand Gonna roll it on over to apocalypse If that's what I gotta do just to kiss your lips Been a long time, been a long time Been a long time, been way too long Study your man, study your wife Study your world, study your life Study your weak, study your strong Cause you know I don't wear straw shoes strutting along

It'll be all right, just wait a moment If you talk too much you'll probably miss it Gonna carve myself out from the angle I'm addicted to the mold I'm made of I keep getting it and losing it Desert Neptune I keep it ending it and feeling it From the depths of soon Time skipping trickster why so glum? Got the world your rain drop twist like tongue You ignore me, you ignore me, little changes But it's not the effect your so afraid of I keep getting it and losing it Desert Neptune I keep it ending it and feeling it From the depths of soon It'll be all right It'll be all right I keep getting it and losing it Desert Neptune I keep it ending it and feeling it From the depths of soon It'll be all right It'll be all right

Up to Here 04:19
We've had it up to here running your mouth it's just a side effect of our ignorance We've had it up to here talking us down this self important double systematic intellect We've had it up to here running around You say that's just the way it is but you speak from a negative We've had it up to here dumbing us down The trance is traceable Back to hypocritical We've had it up to here We've had it up to here They wanna trick you into choosing a side Don't let em Don't let em trick you into choosing a side They're gonna Sure try and trick you into choosing a side Don't let em Don't let em trick you into choosing a side Keep falling for it, keep falling for it Keep falling for it, better open your eyes Keep falling for it, keep falling for it Keep falling for it, better open your eyes Is it manufactured, what we believe Is it manufactured, what we choose to see Is it manufactured, the reality Keep falling for it, keep falling for it Keep falling for it, better open your eyes Keep falling for it, keep falling for it Keep falling for it, better open your eyes Open your eyes We've had it up to here We've had it up to here We've had it up to here We've had it up to here

Lotsapoppa 02:57
Lotsapoppa reigned in Played a buzz roll that I dug Yellow was bedraggled Rig his generation bug Check your game a rip off From the mouth Old Nick to us Honesty’s generic pill Meddle with the formulae It’s not phenomena It’s not revelation Sloppy second karma Stretching words to suit a lamb Remedy entitled Held by popular demand It’s not phenomena It’s not revelation You are the anger you hate You are the milk in the crate Anxiety scam away To snub another lame day It’s not phenomena It’s not revelation

Adeline 03:55
There's a garden deep inside of me from where I do not know But lately it's been starving from the numbers I behold In this bottomless pit of all my feelings so strange Seems to last forever i'm just losing my way Maybe it came from outer space That's why I can't conform I can't behave Fetching all the stones that broke my heart and broke my world Like waking up to find it was a thousand years ago When that hellfire started up running through your veins You were just born but now the mirror stole your name In another galaxy I thrive That's when I lived on Adeline I'll just be myself I'll be a solo alien Cuz life is just a joke and so are you And that is why we're laughing In this galaxy another life I can't erase I need to kick it soon or else I'll have to face the pain In the light of darkness everyday That joker used to tell the truth But now he cowers in the shade Hey there Mr. Influencer please just go away We don't believe in you and anything you have to say Fire and brimstone I wish upon your head your famous now for all the things that surely make us dead Your algorithm's got nowhere to go Cept' down the drain Cuz you ain't got no soul God it died a while ago incase you didn't know So if your headed back to Adeline for the show and tell them After all your god is just a toy Made to prey on every girl and boy After all it came from outer space That broken heart you feel inside your brain And I need you I need you
7.
You know that most of the famous are just born into it You know the music that you like was made for marketing You know the news you watch don't tell you even half the truth Just like the algorithm that you follow down the tube Just wanna feel good, don't give a fuck Just wanna feel good, the blood stains out of luck Just wanna feel good, lying to me every day Just wanna feel good, so follow me down the lane Live on the platform and you don't know what to say All's in the family just as long as you obey With all the money and the empties you'll fit in Keep lying to yourself and you will surely win CHORUS I need some light, I need to go to the beach Two years of shut down got me down on my knees I used to find romance in being alone Now my anxiety's out of control CHORUS The older the darkness gets It all starts to look like bullshit The older the darkness gets It all starts to look like bullshit So many tragedies and God forbid we deal with it As long as they play your song and you getcha getcha fix The world will wait and you can set the stage with all your friends You got your bubble making lovey with your self portrait CHORUS The older the darkness gets It all starts to look like bullshit The older the darkness gets It all starts to look like bullshit

Dotted Line 04:23
On the dotted line Tear down the signs Leave it all Leave it all behind With all the minus signs Add em up to burn the fire Feel the engine come alive See the deadwood shining bright Burn all your angels light If that’s what it takes tonight Cuz it’s all good tonight Its all good tonight Take a chance and make it right Make it feel just like it should be Burnin like the ember stars In the broken velvet night The glowy ghetto snakeskin eyes Under shiny streets that cry Burn all your angels light On the rainy streets we ride And her tears are burnin bright Pretty tears that glisten in the night Wrap your mind in open eyes The dirty lights they magnetize Stagger down the neon stairs Shiny streets that go no where Tears cry infinity We are the electricity We are the electricity Strike the cobweb attic sky The ghost sky that raised you and me It’s all good tonight Its all good tonight Take a chance and make it right Make it feel just like it should be Wrap your mind in open eyes All the colors magnetize The horizon staggers on The rain drops sound like a song The horizon owns my eyes And these dreams are multiplied Sweet magic babe don’t cry Cuz were here and its all good tonight It’s all good tonight Its all good tonight Take a chance and make it right Make it feel just like it should be Sweet magic babe don’t cry Sweet magic babe don’t cry Sweet magic babe don’t cry Sweet magic babe don’t cry Cause we're here and it's all good tonight

Old Nick 02:56
When old nick drops We'll ride on When old nick drops We'll ride on
11.
Keep on trying to find a home Like drawing blood from a stone Build em up and knock em down This heart of stone comes crumbling down Hey come on down, come on down Hard to find religion in these times my father Hard to see the light when you don't know your mother And if you think you can walk on water And if you wish that this burden would matter Walk on water Walk on water I'm all wet I'm all wet Silence won't save you now My soul is made of iron I'll bleed, I'll burn it out My blood is made of fire Silence won't save you now My soul is made of iron I'll bleed, I'll burn it out My blood is made of fire
12.
Edge of Time 07:11
On the edge of time Vanish on my mind These eyes that swallow Penetrated by too much of what will be It comes and goes but never knows reversing raindrops from the sea I recalibrate I recalibrate Hollowed out the signs Emptiness rewind These dreams are filled with latency Feeding itself infinity This hibernation has to stop Before it turns into disease I recalibrate I recalibrate
13.
Stardust 03:47
Oh my friend where are you tonight May the axis wield your hammer free and untied Oh my friend build the pyre up high Burn the deadwood troubles down into the fire We go on dim red sun All our trials fallen from the sky Upside down charred into the light Ra was sly, he slithered on the floor Shamed all carbon charred forever more We go on dim red sun Oh this world, reverence to your life Flowers on your footsteps drunken by and by Oh this life is passing on by We're just stardust fallen from the sky We go on dim red sun Torn and bowed ,destined to repair Hail the afterlife in a galaxy somewhere Torn and bowed, destined to repair Hail the afterlife in a galaxy somewhere

Muddy Ruckus is a “darkly inventive" rock duo according to the New York Music Daily. Guitarist Ryan Flaherty and drummer Erika Stahl of Portland, Maine play a grungy style of railroad indie punk blues. This stripped-down power-duo blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit, and is known for a full rock band sound.
