Track Name: Madman
You can call me a madman but I am spoken for. You can take my possessions, leaves me an open door. And the city has a cay just to make you forget about all the stuff you love and thing you don’t know yet about the space that’s left where nobody talks about the quiet on the path where nobody walks. When the road takes me to the other side of the world let a walnut tree replace me, give my body back to the birds. You can call me a mad man but I am spoken for. Should I blame my profession or should I bless the war. And the city has a way just to make you forget about all the stuff you love and things you don’t know yet about the space that’s left where nobody talks about the quiet in the path where nobody walks. Love inflates you, a balloon, but just one little pin and your work will try to waste you if you don’t have discipline. When the road takes me to the other side of the world, ‘till the end decides to break me, I will put my hand on the word.
Track Name: Shine my Diamond Ring
Take my weighted hand to my desert land, wash my sorrow. Thunder hammering I’m under I can’t get clean I wonder how long I lay down every night, at my best I’m alright, way down in the light there’s a dark room calling my name. Shine my diamond ring, take my suffering, save my baby from the cold, mamma come to me, set my soldier free- keep my baby from the cold.
Track Name: Desiree
Well I know it won’t be long, I will sing another song but I can’t remember now. You’ve broken every tie and I’ve swallowed every lie but I can’t remember how. My life went down the wishing well but from my tongue I say, Desiree… Don’t go away… I know I must right how you’ve stolen all the light you’re a killer and a con and I cannot understand for my love you give me sand and a rope to hang me on. My life went down the wishing well in my head I say I wish you well, but from my tongue I say… Desiree… Don’t go away. I can listen to the people who tell me I am blind, I can take this sting away so I won’t have the need to stay.
Track Name: The Game
Leave the needle in the hay come on in and lay it down, you wouldn’t find it any way come on in and lay it down you can act against the part or you can come on in and lay it down, you can stumble in the dark or you can come on in and lay it down. When they take your name that’s when you got to be a man, when a wall is not the way come on in and lay it down, when you can’t take another day, come on in and lay it down. When you see their greasy fingers fin a crack when you chop the devil’s tail and he grows it back.
Track Name: The Drive
I waited for tonight. There’s so much on my mind, my hands left to the ride, my eyes they turn inside, she don’t have to try with more than just her skin. Now I don’t have to know I just want to win. Pulling slowly in her driveway. See my baby coming my way. I waited for a storm, to blow a hole my way, I tried every night, it took me ‘till today. I can’t wait to see your door and though the wrong and though the war, I don’t want to see the light no more, ain’t that what the night is really for, pulling slowly in her driveway, see my baby coming my way.
Track Name: Spiritual Leather
Toes that dent the sand melancholy feelings I am still your man, feeling is believing, wars come into my dreams, they needle me awake. On the road is long and wider than forever I hope we’re that strong spiritual leather. Time, she was never such a friend she never cried for me. Time, she was never a friend, she never waits for me. What is the answer to every question what is the reason for every direction if we burn the answer for our protection, would that be ok? The sun is filled with lies promises and laughter, now I can’t be that wise but I have seen the after. Slow, slow, that mamma down, I gotta get back home, slow, slow that mamma down, I gotta get back home.
Track Name: Done Calling You
Been two days and a month, I never give up, you got me drinking your booze in a broken cup, oooh babe I’m done calling you. I can’t get your love from the telephone but lately I’ve been thinking that I’m better alone, oooh babe I’m done calling you. I wouldn’t hang you up, I wouldn’t treat you like that, don’t wanna call you babe, I wanna be where you’re at, oooh babe I’m done calling you.
Track Name: The Real Thing
You can learn it when you’re awake, you can practice in a dream, when you conquer every mistake you can wipe the slate clean. You can marry into the kingdom you can dance around the queen, but when the shit come flying you’re gonna have to come clean. Oh but nothing prepares you for the real thing… you got a fortified village, you got you’re a team, but when you pull down heaven you’re gonna see what I mean. Oh but nothing prepares you for the real thing.
Track Name: Razor of Love
We burn through the money and take off our gloves, we cut up our eyes on the razor of love I can’t understand half the things that you can, but I love you. My face is a house stuck in hopeless repair, your youth took a hike from your beautiful hair, but I want to grow old with you, I didn’t lie when I told you I love you. So you reach for the past but it melts like the snow, damn decisions they follow you everywhere that you go you made your mistakes there’s no pill left to take, just some water. All the pretty little little things I could make with my hands all the cheap little notes I could have wrote for the band, now you’re asking me why I left it to die, because I want you. All that is new is tired and old again what was so ligt is freezing cold again do you remember when… A kiss was a hundred shocks to the spine and skin was the doorway to the carnal divine. When the shackles of love had yet to decide the fate of the fools who follow the blind. I can’t tell very well when you’re coming around with your Lolita whim or your chainsaw mouth, but it keeps me alive, and that’s partly why I love you. You mistake my silence for some kind of doubt, when you lose your teeth may it please shut your mouth there may come a day when there’s nothing I’d say but I love you. The evening is toast and restless and board, and the kids are medieval but we’re not the lords, but I cannot imagine if we didn’t have them… I love you.
Track Name: My little Man
It’s not here at all I cannot recall the game I played when I was young without your little face to put me back into place I played good but I’m amazed that I won. The weight of my stare I cannot repair as I watch you grab for the light. Let your innocence rain for one last refrain before I kiss your head goodnight. Old Mr. Crow tell me what you know when to steal and when to dive, one day my little man won’t fit in my hands. Take the slack that I’ve left behind, I can’t say I planned it I flew forever just to land it my religious devotion I can’t pretend to understand it everybody was a notion but someday you will know who I am my little man. Death says hello are you ready to go, I was ready at 21 but the truth is too old and I know too much I can’t go yet without my son. My little man I love you so much. I’m gonna let you sleep tonight but I want you to know every time that I go that it’s me on the end of the knife. I can’t say I planned it I flew forever just to land it, my religious devotion I can’t pretend to understand it, everybody has a notion , but someday you will know who I am my little man…
Track Name: Looking for the Master
Living’s never easy when your soul is dead death is never easy when you’re waiting around just to keep us safe we look for a master a war will not win easy when your mind is bent faith is never easy when you take more than you’re lent. Just to keep us safe we’re looking for a master. Without a key, without some thirsty remorse, without a heath that puts the body back in course the house is empty the windows are black nobody sleeps tonight.
Track Name: It Won't Be Long
Shoulder me even though I know I’ve done wrong and I know it won’t be long, it won’t be long. Shelter me and though I’ve denied hear me now as I cry. It won’t be long, it won’t be long, it won’t be long. Show to me show your open arms and I will pawn my evil mind…It won’t belong.
