Track Name: Getting to You
I've seen you at the drug store
Your Prescription ain't filled
I've seen you in the parking lot
Giving hand jobs out for pills
You try so hard to hide it
You try so hard to lie
But one day you will have to look me in the eye
Chorus:
Uh Huh
I'm getting to you
Uh Huh
Your money's not the issue
Your strategy's well planned
Your insecurities are the real problem here at hand
Depression got you started
Addiction got you hooked
A key bump and a nose bleed is all that it took
Chorus
Track Name: Lil' Annie
Little Annie sister cross on her chest
She talking with her Mama they talking bout death
Mama said it'll get us all sometime
Little Annie said when is sometimes mine?
Chorus:
She said Oh Yeah
Lordy I don't know
She said Oh Yeah
When Little Annie says so
Little Annie sister ring in her nose
Cheap sunglasses ripped pantyhose
Little Annie goes where the wind blows
Still people wonder why she live the life that she chose
Chorus:
She said Oh Yeah
Lordy I don't know
She said Oh Yeah
Cause Little Annie says so
Track Name: She Ain't got a Care Now
You ask me where I’m going
I’m walking all the time
You ask me what I’m doing
Just trying to keep my mind
I tried so hard to hurry
I tried so hard to care
But I should never worry
Because you’re never there
Chorus:
She ain’t got a care now, a care now
I’m trying to be civil
Trying to keep my cool
Just lemme have a nibble
Before you say I’m full
The answer’s in the question
I’ve heard so many times
When will you learn you lesson
Oh lordy, how I’ve tried
Chorus
Track Name: Truth
The jungle real or realized
In the spaciest of places
Friendly gathering of pupils
In the school where minds are wasted
Passing judgment on all passerby’s
When demons lie beneath
That are darker than the darkness
That stays in the kids they teach
Firm believers in a faith
That speaks the word they don’t obey
They fear the poor man on the street
More than they fear their judgment day
While the kids that roam the hall
Are as unaware of the situation
As their parents or the teachers
Giving them their education
Children dying, leaders lying
We have the same moon tonight
Look at it, be legit
When you go to live your life
The corrupt a dime a dozen
The truth is there if you seek it
The good are few and a far between
Don’t you think it’s time we teach it?
Track Name: Edge Of The World
Standing on the edge, the edge of the world now
Waiting for tomorrow to come around
Know I never begged, begged a sweet whore now
But tonight I'm feeling lonely
Maybe you could help me out
Chorus:
Yes and I tried to make, her understand
That there's only so much I can take
Only so much I can stand
And if we stop this all right now, I'll lend my hand
And be your man again
He held a knife, a knife to her throat now
Cause she held a secret that could not get out
Her room was filled, with whiskey and smoke now
She held a pistol that he never found
Chorus
Track Name: Honey Child
Honey child, do you know how
Much I care for you?
If you even had a clue
You wouldn’t treat me like you do
Every memory I have
Of me and you
You look like an angel
And I look like a fool
Chorus:
Oh ya
It’s over now, and funny how
A man can be afraid
When I leave that door, no more
Will I ever be your slave
Say goodbye, now don’t you cry
I’ll be back again someday
And you’ll be at the mercy
Of the one who got away
Chorus
Track Name: Lily White Limp
Intensely assaulted at the bottom of the sea
With my bloody red lips,
And my broken right hand
They looking everywhere
Lord they looking for me
But I left my wedding ring
On my microphone stand
Chorus 1:
My lily light leg
Was just limping away
He never looked at me
Lord he never looked at me
And all I ever wanted
Was just written in this place
And all I ever wanted
Was just written on his face
In dreams, broken dreams
I met me a man who had places to be
So I balled up and asked
If I could go with him
He lent out his hand
Without looking at me
Then took me on a trip
To a far away land
Chorus 2:
We got where we were going
Without saying a thing
He never looked at me
Lord he never looked at me
And all I ever wanted
Was just written in this place
And all I ever wanted
Was just written on his face
In dreams, broken dreams
Track Name: Full Of It
Been around the world and back 15 times
Doesn't matter that it was only in my mind
Seen everything, spoke every language around
Doesn't matter that I don't remember it now
Learned violin when I was 4 years old
Doesn't matter that I forgot it years ago
Backpacked across Europe at just 14
Doesn't matter that it was only in my dreams
Chorus:
Freedom, do you think that I would not remember you?
Abandon, do you think that I would not remember you?
Because I do, ya I do, remember you.
Hey Love, Oh Woah.
Verse 1
Chorus:
Free love, do you think that I would not remember you?
Indulgence, do you think that I would not remember you?
Because I do, ya I do, remember you.
Track Name: Long Fall Down
Woke in the heavens
And I fell from the sky
It’s a long fall down
But there’s no reason to cry
I got thrown out
For having evil ties
It’s a long fall down
But there’s no reason to cry
I shoot for the stars
And I head for the moon
With my butane torch
And my dirty spoon
I lost gravity around afternoon
With my butane torch
And my dirty spoon
Chorus:
If you don’t know me
You’re bound to know me soon
If you don’t know me
You’re bound to know me soon
Cause I’m you
Track Name: Bad Seed
Killing what I’m dealing
And I did up my toll
Baby got a problem say she gonna cry
I don’t wanna think about the pain tomorrow
I just wanna think about tonight
Dancing on the corners
And I’m feeling funky
I just wanna dance until I die
I don’t wanna think about the pain tomorrow
I just wanna think about tonight

Bad seed on daddy’s knee and you love it
Pumped veins ain’t really your thing
But you not above it
One shot leads to what not and some loving
If being a headcase kept your kids safe
You’d be lovely
Bad seed
Broken make your nose bleed
Like your drugs do
Topless in the bathroom
So the boys will love you
Pump fist leaves you blood lips
And a bad mood
If being a headcase kept your kids safe
You would be so cool
Bad seed
Track Name: Own the Night
I’ve traveled on these 7 seas
I’m middle earth bound
This pseudo diplomacy
Could never hold me down
I’ve tried love, and tried hate
Tried everything in between
I’ve lived alone, and I’ve lived by fate
Still never know what it means
Fortune’s come and fortune’s go
While freedom cries to stay
The poor man begs
While the rich man knows
That freedom’s gone away
So stand up and fight back
Let your voice be heard
Show them all what the others lack
Cause freedom’s still the word
Take heed in light pollution
Try hard to realize
That downtown in the city
Lord we still own the night
Later on we’ll decide
Between a bible and a dream
One is real and one’s disguised
Which one remains unseen
Track Name: Crackhead
I ain't even asking for a compromise
Just wonder why you telling telling all your lies
45 years old and still ain't grown up
If you believe how the bible goes
Then your after life is fucked
Chorus:
Sweet Dreams
Sweet Dreams
Ya of me
Is this how it's supposed to be?
Ain't it good to be so free?
Is this how it's supposed to be?
Waking up in a cold sweat needle in your arm
Sleeping next to a crackhead
Boy you got some charm
55 years young and still a junkie
And how you ever lived this long
Is way beyond me
Chorus
