Track Name: Fast Into Nothing
Get up
Runaway
Turn around
And go free
Guide the way
But don't you get before me
Crash down
Dynamite
Come to think sugar
Something just don't feel right

Your lovin
It's really something
It's got me falling
Fast Into Nothing

Rebound
Roller coaster
Seems it's all a lie
Every other weekend
I wonder why
Do I take?
Should I break it?
You used to be my only
Now I only fake it

Your lovin
It's really something
It's got me falling
Fast Into Nothing

Rebound
Roller coaster
See it's all a lie
Crossed out
Let you go
You wonder why
Don't I take?
When you break it
We used to be forever
Now we'll never make it

Your lovin
It's really something
It's got me falling
Fast Into Nothing
Track Name: Badlands
Walk past the abandoned cars
The drug deals
And the go-go bars
Murder- to my left
Right hand- rape & theft
In the alley someone's shooting dope
Is she running from reality?
Or just trying to cope?
She says,
"If there ain't no Jesus there ain't no hope,
'Cause nobody gets to heaven
On a golden rope."

Rolling
Thru The Badlands

A body was found
It was the girl next door
Daddy's little angel
Died a ten dollar whore
Face down naked
In a broken home
She dreamt of being famous
Yet died unknown

The sirens broke the silence
In the middle of the night
A son and a daughter
A husband and a wife
The neighbors fought with courage
An effort lost in vain
Another burned out building
To remind us of the pain

Rolling
Thru The Badlands
Track Name: Thunder
Hey baby say, do you love when lightning strikes at night?
So, here we go.
Will you keep me someplace warm & tight?

Let that rain
Rain come down
Like Thunder
Like Thunder

Say by the way, would you wash me down like lovers do?
Go? Oh, no no.
I'm gonna kiss you when your storm rolls through

Let that rain
Rain come down
Like Thunder
Like Thunder
Track Name: Walking By The River
First time we strolled hand and hand
I knew you'd be my bride
Did my damnedest making a life for us
And honestly I tried

Sometimes we grew together
Sometimes we grew apart
In spite of all them ups and downs
We knew just where to start

You never said a thing to me
I never heard you cry
But surely when the end began
You told me that first lie

Sometimes I feel you lost it all
At times I've blamed myself
But once upon a moonlit stroll
Baby we were something else

We were young
So in love
Future seemed brighter than the sky above
Walking By The River
Walking By the River

Bridge

So woman just stop cheating
What's truly left to say
I found you
In his arms
Burning for a different day
I was burning for a different day

We were young
So in love
Future seemed brighter than the sky above

Walking By The River
Walking By the River
Track Name: Left Angel In December
Left Angel In December

verse1
Don't go telling no stories baby
I already know
Don't go telling no stories woman
I'm on my way back home
Back down the road I traveled to you
But it ain't the same
So don't be leaving no light on for me
You won't be hearing my name

chorus
Left Angel In December
Everybody's wondering why
Left Angel In December
Couldn't let her see me cry

verse2
Make no excuses darling
I'm much too old for that
Tomorrow memories will fade away
Getting me where I'm at
We picked the rules we'd play by
But we didn't pick the game
I won't be calling when I get home
And I guess it's just the same

Track Name: Text About It ~ feat. Sunshine
kiss me sex love guns & doom
war inside my 4 cornered room
i'm alive
not surprised that i somehow survived
in the distance things could change but my oh my your trip got strange
punch kick bite spit break
shhhh just for spite
but i will survive

not gonna text about it
not picking up the phone
not gonna text about it
when i feel like it i'll come on home

broken shards of sparkling lies
jailed seduction bedroom eyes
old cougar gotta find a younger lover tonight just for spite

not gonna text about it
not picking up the phone
not gonna text about it
when i feel like it i'll come on home
Track Name: Highway #666
Highway #666

chorus...
Broke a deal with the devil to get my kicks
Synced my soul with the system to find my fix
Then I ran right out of my bag of tricks
Down on Highway
Highway #666

v1...
I went down on the edge of town
Cop said 'book him. no crime found'
Walking on a highway with something to prove
#06 #15 #24 who's who?

chorus...

v2...
Drugged, bound, shuffled around
Please lord, let them hear this sound
They're stressed out and out I'm going out of my mind
We need a revelation running thru a rhyme
Constantly Unknowing has surrounded their Reality. Causing an Effect. Reacting their mentality
F - O - X - The Mark of Beast-iality
Swear they're here to help
So, where's their morality

chorus...

solo

v3...
So go and count the #s
Count them all up on the facts
Find the #FOX then attack
The babbling Babylon bitch came back
She's got young women on their backs

chorus out....
Track Name: Drunk, Broke & Lonely
DRUNK, BROKE & LONELY

verse1


I was looking for fun on a Friday night
Wasn't none to be found
Figured I'd take a walk find me something to do
There was no one around
Heard about a party late that night
But I wasn't there
Strutted right up like I was invited
'Cause I didn't care
Seems at the party I was rude
They had a bar I got stewed
Drag me out from across the floor
Kickin! Fightin!
As they threw me out the…

Lonely Got no woman
Broke Got no cash
But drunk I'm plenty of so the world you could kiss my…

verse2
My wedding day here's a story to tell
'Bout when she left
Left me waiting at the alter all by myself thinking
She was the best
The honeymoon was to be a cruise
Only trip I took was into the booze
Broke my heart it should be a crime
Let me tell you my story one more…

chorus2
Lonely Got no woman
Broke Got no cash
But Drunk I'm plenty of so baby the world you can kiss my ass
I'm Drunk, Broke & Lonely
Drunk, Broke & Lonely
Lonely
Lonely

solo

Mmmmmm
Find a job get some cash
Find me some lovin' that I know will last
This or that well I can't pass
'Cause sitting in front of me is an empty…


chorus3
Lonely Got no woman
I'm Broke Got no cash
But Drunk I'm plenty of so baby the world you can kiss my ass
I'm Drunk, Broke & Lonely
Drunk, Broke & Lonely
Drunk, Broke & Lonely
Drunk, Broke & Lonely

Drunk, Broke & Lonely (Yes, I'm lonely)
Drunk, Broke & Lonely (lonely)
Drunk, Broke & Lonely
Drunk, Broke & Lonely

Yes, I'm lonely
So lonely
So lonely baby you're the only
Yes, I'm lonely
Drunk, Broke & Lonely
Track Name: In America
Touchdown overground
Freedom's got a brand new sound
Convicts get your crucifix
'Cause old dog's eating old dog's new tricks
It's so over
Need somebody show you
5 o'clock news neighbor's daughter

I want live in America
Right here in America
FInd some love in America
I want to live in America

Welcome to the next dimension
Fellow citizen pay attention
Not everything that we read
Is really quite true yet we still believe
Rat tat tat
Boom boom
Sounds like the devil's breaking into your living room
He ain't there yet but he'll be there soon
So, consumer be prepared to be consumed
Track Name: The Paper
The Paper

Read the paper this morning
The world's going to end today
There's nothing we can do
There's nothing we can say
Details read
Comes at noon
That must mean this will be over soon
It must be true I read it in The Paper

Now I guess we'll finally see
What that lady on the subway has been talking about
Who's gonna find salvation?
Will all the wretched souls get thrown out?
People cried
Children played
I laughed with a girl who just got laid
She swore to me it was the best time of her life

Revelation

The sinners ran so very fast to find a good place to hide
The preachers watched them go and stood with a noble pride
Mother's cooked a feast surely fit for a king
I just sit and wait and watch and I wonder
I just sit and wait and sing

You see,I read it in the paper this morning the orld's going to end today
No no there's nothing we can do
There;s nothing we could say
Details read it comes at one
Another whole hour to have some fun
Well it must be true I read it in The Paper

The Paper
Track Name: Dixie Highway
Guys getting rowdy 'round the bonfire
Girls are dancing in the moonlight
Jacked up trucks
4 wheels
Long tall neck ice cold beers
Daisy dukes & cowboy boots
Oh lord she's singing a Waylon tune
Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys

Take me down
To The Dixie Highway

Ain't no troubles 'round these parts
Everybody's having a good time
ATV wet & dirty
Riding girl yeah she's getting flirty
As I long to kiss her all night long
Now lord she's singing a Daniel's song
The South... The South's gonna do it again

Take me down
To The Dixie Highway
