Track Name: Evil Flower
Evil Flower

Evil flower glimmers in the light
I've been working like a dog, just whittling away my life
saw you in the garden, one cool and breezy night
Took me to another world, where I lost all sight

fall on in, fall on into love,
fall on in, fall on into love,
again and again

whispy flower, in the cool and breezy night
let me hold you, you pretty sight
prick my skin, poisoning by lonely heart
lead me to that garden grave, so cold, so deep, so dark

fall on in, fall on into love,
fall on in, fall on into love,
again and again
Track Name: Smart Ass
Smart Ass


I was a smart ass
went to college
in a city naked
with a lion on its crest

I read the masters
wore sunglasses
when I dug up the masters
and held them to my chest


I was given a promise
I'd learn all that I wanted
I'd debunk all those old stories
big as ole Santa Claus


You were a smart ass
definitely not a tight ass
we made fun of our fathers
& then got laid

So how did we end up
in this old brooklyn dump
just layin' naked
staring at your rump


We're just living a promise
We've learned all that we've wanted
We're just one of those stories
big as old Santa Claus
Track Name: Chinese Jail
Chinese Jail


She was fishing in a river
full of teeth and nails
it was a land where boys were men
and storms were gales

They would hover and gather
searching for a friend
a lady took em by their hand
and beckoned them in

She was looking for love
waiting on the mail
yeah, she was longing for her lover in a Chinese jail
just waiting' on a lover in a Chinese jail


chorus:

when your out on your own
and you lost your friends
you can count on picking up
a few good men
While you're waiting' and a longing' for your long lost man


Now it's all set in
he's on the sofa again
staring blankly at the window with a whiskey in his hand

he was out in the world
then he was out on bail
forever thinking of a moment in the chinese jail
while she was waiting for a word from the US Mail

when your on your own
and you lost your friend
you can count on picking up
a few good men
While your wait on your lover in a Chinese jail
Track Name: Road to Ruin
The Road to Ruin

you take out the trash and wonder how it ever got this good
the neighbors have stopped fighting, but their kids toys are strewn all over the hood
at the end of the block the pizza hut is full of teenagers
playing space invaders & makin' out till someone gets pregnant

Chorus:

and so it goes, and no one's there to change it
the mess we make, looks like the love we created
& the road to ruin's paved with good intentions
if horny is intention, and giving it away is like pavement

2.
& back at the church all the ladies ask, "where is Becky Sue?"
she's moved to Indiana with her cousin Kris who came up from Yazoo
& the jello salad melts at the potluck in the park after church
& all the gals are jealous cause nancy harlan's chicken
is pretty much as good as it gets.

3.
now she's back on the bottle, knocking over figurines & planters
lookin' so damn sexy, rolling off the sofa and nailing the corner of a table
but she's the one who turns me on, now that all the kids are mad and gone for good now
& thanks to menopause I can have her any time without a condom on
Track Name: Death
Death!

Oh death, you got me in your evil clutches
Oh death, you got me like a diner has roaches
Oh death, you got me in your evil way
with cancer, war and accidents, no chance to get away…

I thought I was young once, but that was just a hoax
I thought there was a future, but that too was a joke
Oh, will I walk the gauntlet, of that judgement day
& grit my teeth just knowing there's no chance to get away

bridge

Evil men of history, Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin
Even if if they made their mark on earth, they got one thing in common
Jesus, Ghandi, Ho Chi Men, all clamoring for heaven
But I fear that what we fear is true, we all just turn to carbon

-solo-

Oh tell me what I have to do, I'm getting' kinda panicked
I wish I hadn't thought of this cuz now I see I've had it
Let's settle this like gentlemen, perhaps a game of chess?
I want to see what's next in life without worms crawling from my chest


Oh death, you got me in your evil clutches
Oh death, you got me like a diner has roaches
Oh death, you got me in your evil way
with cancer, war and accidents, no chance to get away…
Track Name: Broken Angel
Broken Angel

The broken wings of an angel
must be lyin' in my hallway
she flew out my door last night
I can still here her calling

I can proudly say I'm the one she loves
& now she's made her break away
but tomorrow, more than coffee she'll be
nursin' a flagrant sense of loss


The taxi sped down the highway
lookin for that by-way
where people tend
to treat each other bad

Hobos in love most always
fill the night with lonesome stories
and they'll take her home tonight
to write some more

One man's angel tonight, is another's ho-ho-ho-ho

She's my broken angel
so thank me for her tragic beauty
wish I had the will to change my ways
but all I know is how to write these maudlin tales
Track Name: Waiting on a Train
Waiting on a Train

She was out there waiting on a train
out there waiting on a train
waiting for something to happen
but all that happened was a little rain

Waiting for something to happen
happen out there by the train
stand out there in the open
out there in the open, out there in the rain

Heaven knows what I'll do
Heaven knows whay I'll say
She's run off with that storm chaser
& it started, just waiting on a train…


just a foot print in the mud
now she's smiling down from above
somewhere in up in that tornado
oh my darling, my darling turtle dove...
Track Name: Boozy Memory
Your Boozy Memory


Funny you look familiar, though I know we can't be kin
But I've a funny feeling, we've been a whole lot more than friends
Perhaps we shared a home on the other side of town
and at one point we went huntin' for the prettiest wedding gown


Chorus:

but now I see you drive a Subaru & a ring gleams in the sun
the grocery boy carries all your bags with a smile from door to door
so I'll move along now that I know you're life's much richer without me
& I'll sleep a little longer, with your boozy memory


Solo


Some day I'll learn to live with a love I've come to earn
I'll be solid as a rock to her & polite to all her friends
But for now all I can think about is what we lost so long ago
& it's easier to lift this bottle than to get up off this floor


Chorus:

So drive away in your Subaru with your ring that gleams in the sun
give a dollar to the grocery boy so he can carry on
& I'll move along now that I know you're life's much richer without me
& I'll sleep a little longer with your boozy memory

Yes, I'll blow this lonely night away with your boozy memory
Track Name: The Beef Trade in Suede
the beef trade in suede

the beef trade in suede
gobbles all the giblet
from the gravy train

the beef trade in suede
saving all it's money
to blow on a pretty dame


One shot rings true
your death belongs to you
reach out & greet a world of mutes


the maker had his calling
creation had it's falling
evil stalks the pasture
the good recalls the master

one shot rings true
all men must fall
our lives true blue
to truth recall


the beef trade in suede
crashing all the parties
for the latest recipes from spain

the beef trade in suede
spilling all its gravy
on a random rainy day


fly me down to miami
so I can shout at
castro & tammy
drop me at the track
to meet the dogs
Track Name: Caroline and Danny
Caroline & Danny

Danny was a good friend of mine
shared many a good ole times
shared one too many good ole times
and the one that did it was named caroline

caroline & danny there in the back of my van
caroline & danny, tell me when you see the promised land

thought she was mine and we had something special
down at the lake beneath a choir celestial
in the van drivin' into town promises flying all around
promises are easy when you're all alone

danny was back at the 7-11,
where we all smoked pot & drank fifths of heaven
the night was long and our memories short
and I took a glance at what I never thought

caroline & danny there in the back of my van
caroline & danny, tell me when you see the promised land

solo

Never knew I was a violent sort
never knew hatred or jealousy
never joined ROT-Cee or was even into video games
but something inside me came out one day

there was the sun in the early morn,
and my lover and him in my van
same place we made love the night before
and promised those promises that just were never kept

& all these years me and danny were so tight
& this girl waltzes in and makes wrong seem right
& I knew they'd be happy & I'd probably be bitter
so I stabbed 'em so quickly they didn't even know what hit 'em

caroline & danny there in the back of my van
caroline & danny, tell me when you see the promised land

I always wondered where the soul roams
upon leaving this earth that takes such a heavy toll
and I seen their faces all wracked in pain
looking for relief from this world I asked them again

caroline & danny there in the back of my van
caroline & danny, tell me when you see the promised land
Track Name: We Are The People!
We Are The People


we are the people
in front of you everywhere you go
squeezing tomatoes,
feeling the sand in between our toes

we eat a burger
we like to eat like we are two
we like to hurry
we like to do what ever we do

...


we are the people
this is my car that you'll see around town
it's white & shiny
it's what you get with a cap and gown

going down to the river
couples couple and quiver
people marry and have babies
and buy a house and join the navy

...


we are the people
we only buy things in cellophane
and in the traffic
the radio tells all the villains' names

you can go to the hospital
the school the church or city hall
we'll be there everywhere you are
you may as well give up on guitar
Track Name: Everyone's Dead
Everyone's dead

Everyone's dead, everyone's dead
you can tell by what she just said

Everyone's dead, everyone's dead
you can tell by what she just said

so long, so far, she says she's just fine
so long, so far, she says she's just fine

Everyone's dead, everyone's dead
you can tell by what she just said
