Track Name: Burn It Up
You've been running around with the wrong crowd; junkies, thieves and beggars.
Telling me you ain’t too proud, with you weekend in Las Vegas...
Burn it up, burn it up, burn it out of your mind

Those south-side souls... standing on bourbon dressed in roles. They’re vapid vanguard on beat. Listen to the jaybird singing man, I can’t stand the heat...
Burn it up, burn it up, burn it out of your mind

Struggle with thoughts that you just can’t tell!
Sounds of the night are all you can sell...
Track Name: Harden To Heal
You’ve got silver in your hand and a cold blank stare, ambition inside but you ain’t going nowhere. And time don’t seem to wait for you to make up your mind. Spend the day wrestling fate and looking for a sign .

Chorus
Dirty mind and dirty hands, you got ‘em steady on the wheel.
Put on hearts and put off plans you gotta harden to heal.

Your mama treats me good but your daddy never would. When vast is the night, you stray off if you could.
But you’re caught up in affliction, while all your boys race for lust. You’re burned up from friction and searching for trust

When hard crime starts paying, when all the good sells out, you’re traveling to follow but your wheels are worn out.
You're strides ahead of beat down and just out of grasp, when your sun rises over the border, don't look back.
Track Name: Hell Town
Stranded in the rain, on a Sunday morning, with a fist full of rage and a cold cough. I was playing a dealt hand, no deceit’ no cheatin’. I was doing alright, until the talking started.

The drinks were flying free, the woman were out for the money, but the sin around here ain’t lust, it’s the desire for gluttony. It’s just another dirty trail that leads to another worn out heart...In Hell town

Comin’ in from the coast. Through a pale horizon, a wild horse called lightnin’, carrying a ghost rider. He was once a trusted companion who fell on a loosing streak...In Hell town

Gotta leave before the sun sets, before the road gets dark, before the bellow of Broadway gets too strong to deny. These demons ‘ll pull you in, with guitars, drink and women. They got faces like a callous but bodies so fine.

Well their beds are filled with soft feather, until the hurting starts when they lock you in a room and wanna call it love. It’s just another confiscation, just another lost soul...In Hell town

Me, I’m longing for the mountain, for the sweet dew, for the red sky morning, with no pain pushing through. Instead I’m on this working line, earning more than what I’m given...In Hell town

You gotta know when your time is ticking out, when it’s running toward the ledge, with no regret or fear to slow it down, wouldn’t that be something if it did? With these jealous eyes upon me, looking for any reason to fight, I think it’s time I follow time.

The mission bells toll, for all the branded souls, who claim land grants in paradise with fertile soil and deep wells. But it’s just another hot dry day and just another failing year...In Hell town

Whore'd and hollowed out, bartering with the Lord, like a killer on his death bed, pleading with tears for joy. Saying, “How long till this is over and what did you expect from me...In Hell town”?
Track Name: Its A Shame
It's a shame baby, the way you love me so wrong
It's a shame baby, the way you love me so wrong
You got me right where you want me, but we just can't get along

I'm a strong mind and I ain't no roust-about
I'm a strong mind and I ain't no roust-about
I can bleed a little for you honey but I can't bleed out

I can pick it up all day when your sweetness abounds
I can pick it up all day when your sweetness abounds
But I can't live this way, the way you push me around

I got a taxi at the door his meter's out there runnin'
I'm looking at your pretty mouth wishing you'd just say something

All the while I'm gone you best mind and be thinking
All the while I'm gone, you best mind and be thinking
Instead of stowed away with your old habits, nagging', whining and bitchin'
Track Name: Skylark
Leaving a trail of dust on a blacktop road
Keeping my four wheels rolling while my eyes are closed
Turning my brain on high when the knowing silence speaks
Stuffing my dreams in a pocket that seldom keeps
Where's that song that makes it all alright?
For the ramble worn soul in me

Blood on a rusted blade, a howling harkens in the distance
I've been a thief, I've been a junkie standing with the resistance
With a bottle of poison and the night deserted black
My rear-view reflects the love that been held back
Where's that song that makes it all alright
A strong wind to come and carry me

Chorus
An angel perched upon my dirty hood
Broken horizons hungry lying stark
Keep me movin' along and I guess I should..skylark

When the soul goes missing and your eyes go blind
To the love we squandered along a cold hard line
With my battered back turn toward goodness
And a righteous heart turned to stone
Where's that song that makes it all alright
For the ramble worn soul in me
Track Name: Roll & Move
There’s a hollering' coming from deep below
There’s a hollering' coming from deep below
There’s a staggering push in the wind that blows

Get your howl on honey and your party dress
Get your howl on honey and your party dress
I got my black leather boots and my suits all pressed

Chorus
Down in Memphis, laying it down tight, don’t you worry ‘bout a thing it ’ll be alright, up on the mountain baby or down in the groove, we gonna flood this thing out, time to roll and move

I been on long hot roads full of hard hits
I been on long hot roads full of hard hits
I need a short cool ride where I can rest a bit

I’m gonna meet you right where the full moon crests
I’m gonna meet you right where the full moon crests
You’ll be looking so good like a fine hot mess
Track Name: Wayward Mama
Blues under a red sky and no fight is fair, people shuffling on by but not going no where, well they’ll talk you out of town then wonder why you’ve gone into the arms of another that would do you wrong

Chorus
I’m a sweat drenched body in the sweltering heat, I can feel your love blowing baby, I may howl at the moon or bay softly, just don’t say you ain’t got nothing for me...
Wayward mama you been gone so long, it’s time for you to come home

I held my own when some forces bore down and I raved up baby with a sanctifying sound I made your heart pound and your ears bleed, now I’m wishing you back woman, God speed

I ain’t gonna take shame for the way that I’ve been any long stretch of road is a complicated friend and if the world don’t turn in haste and pull me off yet I’ll give what I can and wait around to get
Track Name: Turmoil Street
I was King of the wild for a little while, turnin' mean spirited out
Now I'm not long for this world feeling Hell bent and full of doubt

Disease ain't sorry to kill a man on a high road of a range
Another beastly glow takes the sun down, another foe brings me something strange

A Harlequin heart would suffer here,
Ain't nothing' to give out attention
Faith is tested and love gets weak
When you're all broke down on Turmoil Street

Wind brought the stench of stale whiskey breath, broke down again on busted wings
Any angel with me now has got a death wish as a northern squall brings a rain sting

Darkness strangle desire and the vagrants get what they need
And they say there ain't never any sense in wanting for anything

But as the light breaks yonder past what I thought was real, what was disguised as that
let a battered heart learn some things and let a jivied soul have some kindness back.

Lies ain't lies no more
Once you can see right through what you been looking for
Truth is contested by crooked deceit
When you're all broke down on turmoil street

But I hold still and push the pain straight through and hold my breath till my face turns blue
I held back tears and I cried some too
Track Name: Still Day Left
Stuck in a Buick when the wind shifted, watching the cold freeze a lonesome day. With my heart on fire and my spirit lifted, I’ll find something to make me stay and there’s still day left, there’s still day left

There’s a turning point every man should reach when it comes hit it hard and don’t stop. Half a mile past another day gone, up the road from where we got lost, there’s still day left, there’s still day left

Chorus
There’s still day left, when the night falls, when the night falls rest

The dusk bring the color from a dirty sky. I bring a smile from a smirk as I realize that my intentions are good ones especially tonight, as I reach for you honey and hold I you tight there’s still day left, there’s still day left
Track Name: House In The Country
Ain't too late to change the way you live your life
Ain't too late to change the way you live your life
They say you can always go back home but you can't make everything right

Built you a house in the country, your in the city every night
Built you a house in the country, your in the city every night
Messin' fooling' making strange, girl you just any living right

I've walked tall down reckless roads before I found your love
I've walked tall down reckless roads before I found your love
Now I lie in my dark room, wondering what I was thinking of

You can no longer come around and you can't seep here no more
You can no longer come around and you can't seep here no more
I done burned our memories and throw'd you things out doors

Spirits whisper and sing to this broken man
Spirits whisper and sing to this broken man
Midnight moon casting shadows upon my lonesome land
