Track Name: Devil Is Lurking
Packed up the car and away we went
into the night like we were hell bent

To Ride, to ride

I told you once and you told me twice
We’ve got to leave before daylight
And ride and ride

Cause the devils chasing us on this ride
Screaming howls and whining cries
We’ve got to get there before sunrise
Cause the devil is lurking behind

Drink the coffee to widen your eyes
Keep ‘em peeled so there’s no surprise

And ride and ride

Killing bugs at breakneck pace
Hell on wheels, fire in my veins

Lets ride lets ride

The destination’s closer now
Too bad I’m going 5 miles an hour

Lets ride lets ride

Cause the devils chasing us on this ride
Screaming howls and whining cries
We’ve got to get there before sunrise
Cause the devil is lurking behind
Track Name: Big Politician
Well I just don’t know what to do
No I just don’t know what to do
No I just don’t know what to do, how bout you
What we need is a big politician to get into our business and tell us what to do

How should I walk
How should I talk
How should I eat my food

Can I carry a gun
Can’t we ever have fun
You tell me what to do

Because I need a big politician to save me from myself

Take it from her
Give it to him
Keep a little for your self

I mean its not even money
Isn’t this funny
Are we really fooling ourselves?

We need a big politician to move our money around
Meanwhile I’m here at the hardware store trying to figure out which light bulb to buy

She can marry him
He can marry her
But Mary can’t marry Mary that’s for sure

We need a big politician to get into our business and tell us what to do
I don’t know about you, but I just don’t know what to do

Left says this
Right says that
Come on We the People where the hell you at
These big politicians keep putting us down
So sorry grandson for having to pick up my tab

And its a little creepy that they're watching me
And its a whole lot creepy that they're watching you and me
Track Name: Lie to Me
It's been days, since I've seen your face.
And I am sure it will be days to come.
I fill my spaces with empty gazes
I fill my days with thoughts of where you e gone.

Cause you're the only one that brings it home to happiness.
And you're the only man who gives me what I need.
Now I don't care if that means years to come of emptiness.
I don't care if that means you must lie to me.

Dee Dee Dee Dee
(L I E)
Dee Dee Dee Dee
(LIE TO ME)

They say it is the truth that sets you free,
But not for me.
(L I E)
no not for me.
(LIE TO ME)

I don't care if that means you must lie to me.

She sticks to me like honey on bees whenever I come home.
He's out the door before I count to four to run off and roam.
She needs to see I need space to breathe, to be on my own.
Still life's too hard, too short to live it alone.

Cause you're the only one that brings it home to happiness.
And you're the only man who gives me what I need.
Now I don't care if that means years to come of emptiness.
I don't care if that means you must lie to me.

Dee Dee Dee Dee
(L I E)
Dee Dee Dee Dee
(LIE TO ME)

They say it is the truth that sets you free,
But not for me.
(L I E)
no not for me.
(LIE TO ME)

I don't care if that means you must lie to me.
I don't care if that means you must lie to me.
Track Name: The Way the it Goes
Single file collar

Dangle by the dollar

Call me if you need me

No really, just holler…


The cat’s in the well

No more secrets to tell

Just a song and a riddle

Gonna stay non-committal…


Because the King of the hill

And a man named Phil

Poured gallons of gas into the mouth of the spill…


And Little by little

Like heat from the griddle

Tax-man taking the fruit and the fiddle…


That’s the way that it goes…

That’s just the way that it goes…

Just the way that it goes…

Yeah that’s the way that it goes…


It’s the run of the mill

It’s the thrill of the kill

It’s ice on the pavement

At the top of the hill


Running rum down the middle

Not a public acquittal

Payin’ no mind to the reason

Why my bones are brittle


Got a new pair of knees

On rent from Belize

Now I’m jumping and I’m shaking,

Eating fruit off the trees


The coop has been flown

They put a tap on your phone

I’ll meet you in the morning

in Sierra leone
Track Name: We the People
Come on baby lets go to the ocean
I’ve got a mansion and 5 horses
People they are on my side
I got money coming in, no where to hide

No need to pause
I know its time
Can’t rest on my laurels
Don’t leave me behind
Burning the candle at both ends
Finish lines nowhere it always it always depends

Chorus
Kicking in windows breaking down doors
You call me asshole I say virago
How much more does this war go on
Do we do this until we’re dead and gone
Focus on good through the means of evil
We’re smarter than this aren’t we the people
We the people 3x’s

Kicking in windows breaking down doors
You call me asshole I say virago
How much more does this war go on
Do we do this until we’re dead and gone
We’ve got to keep our way of life
You make me your husband
He makes him his wife

Mean while out there on the sand
Someone crazy is making a plan
To blow us all up, put us all down
Maybe in your little town
Focus on good through the means of evil
We’re smarter than this aren’t we the people
We the people 3x’s

Kicking in windows breaking down doors
You call me asshole I say virago
How much more does this war go on
Do we do this until we’re dead and gone
Focus on good through the means of evil
We’re smarter than this aren’t we the people
Track Name: Vice
Moving at the speed of the road
Everybody’s got some
2 more times before the show
I feel good lets go
We’re done here lets hit the road

The vice is clamping down
Girls Back up vox – Down, down down down down down
Raise the curtain again
Give me that bottle of gin
Now this is the way to sin
Who else wants in
We’re done here lets hit the road

The vice is clamping down
The vice is clamping down
Track Name: Stand Down Jimmy
Left my soul on the side of the road
Old 'Jack Anchor' got it stuck in the door
Hold my heart it's a heavy Weight
Traffic didn't stop and we gonna be late

Cutting the cord and the River run dry
Never known nothing and the answers do fly
Wake me in the morn', we gotta go
You tell me if you leave me then you left me alone

Should have known better than to fix the things that ain't mine, No...!

Stand down Jimmy don't you put your hands up
You know you going to get Shot
Oh man! you got it right, I ain't coming back around
Too many times on the wrong side of Love
It's the kinda love that wearing me thin
Stand down Jimmy don't put your hands up
There's going to be a Fire tonight......

Left my soul on the side of the road
Black widow Mama and the Creep in the soul
Blade in the hand and a Dagger in her heart
Wearing her thin and then the Bleeding starts

Traffic in the brain and the Thunder to start
Draining all the rivers and the Valleys are starved
Living too high, staying too Low
Trying to kill the fever in the valley below

The Heat going to come and burn you alive tonight // NO!

Stand down Jimmy don't you put your hands up
You know you going to get Shot
Oh man you got it right, I ain't coming back around
Too many times on the wrong side of love
It's the kinda love that wearing me thin
Stand down Jimmy don't put your hands up
There's going to be a fire Tonight....
Track Name: Paint My Hands Red
Well paint my hands red
Looks like I’ve done it again
Tripping over myself
And I just don’t know if I’ll ever get it right
I just don’t know if I’ll ever get it right

You’re always up
I’m always down
It’s amazing to me that your still hanging around
Cause I just don’t know if I’ll ever get it right
And I just don’t know if I’m ever gonna get it right
Track Name: Storm Can Be Weathered
Is that the way it goes girl, when you're down and out
It looks like the bottom fell out babe, didn't do it right
But you've got to keep you're mind moving forward towards the light

The Storm can be weathered babe,
I said the storm can be weathered, but it will be grey
You can fight through it girl, find a brighter day
Storm will be weathered and it'll be OK

Hey babe we're gonna solve all you're problems tonight
I said hey little darling is there something I can make right
Cause worry's just too big a thing girl to carry with just your own might
Cause love is just too big a word babe to say without all your might
Track Name: Down In the Valley
Down in the valley with devil my dear
Playing cards with the rebel angels having a beer
Turned to left and asked how’d we get here
With a glaze in her eyes she stated quite clear

We played with fire, too much desire,
Why we’d conspire, you were a liar
I’m not sure if that is perfectly clear
But that’s the reason why we’re here

Sitting at the table they deal me in
Bet my soul out of here if I win
Devil said that sounds like a deal my friend
I’ve only lost once and I won’t be doing that again

I play with fire, too much desire,
I may conspire, but I’m not a liar
I’m not sure if that is perfectly clear
But that’s the reason I’m here

The Devil laid 4 aces with a grin
Said you’re stuck in the valley of your sins
He got up and laughed as he went to lock the door
I threw down a straight flush and danced across the floor

I play with fire, too much desire,
I may conspire, but I’m not a liar
I’m not sure if that is perfectly clear
But that’s the reason I’m out of here
