Lyrics : "Straight Up Boogaloo" (2015)

01. Applecart Blues

Life is once you say
Breakdancin' on my grave
I'm all alone it seems
Blind drunk and losin' steam
* Yeah I'm gonna shake
down on my knees
dead on my feet
Carve my name in stone
This weredog's comin' home
Maladies unreal
And melodies to steal
* I'm gonna shake...
Desperation
Imagination
Choice Libation
It's my inspiration
* I'm gonna shake...

02. Fat City

I can do what you want
Run on down to fat city
If I do, If I do
I can play what you need
Fly me down to fat city
If I do, If I do
You can say at one time you've made it
Lyrics sink like a stone
It's the fall that you later regret
Broke and unknown
Like a page out of time I'm faded
Yellow dusty and old
I could be what you want me to be
But no I wont
You can do what you want
Run on down to fat city
It's a ruse
It's a ruse
If its fame by design
You're right at home in fat city
It's a ruse
It's a ruse
You can say at one time you're famous
Ethics sink like a stone
It's the fall that you later regret
Broke and unknown
Like a page out of time I'm faded
Yellow dusted and old
We could be what you want us to be
But no we won't
I can do what you want
Run on down to fat city
If I do, if I do

03. Lightning Cries

The barren seas/ and azure skies
They play their tricks on me
Hard to analyze
The empty seats/ those vacant eyes
The willow weeps you see
And lightning cries
Nothing new
All I need/ is what I know
The records in between
Muscle shoals
Whitman reads/ O'Clementine
Western movement beat
Toe the party line
And lighting cries
Nothing new
* Ancient script inside the cavern walls
once a proving ground
bones across the floor
letters etched in steel
glowing coals inside my mind
Offend appease/ Amend define
Don't play those games with me
I'd rather pay the fine
The statute leaks/ the eagle spies
The dove she sleeps you see
And lightning cries
Nothing new
*The odds don't favor signs
the sods don't know
eidetic fever dream
tearing down my door
letters etched in steel
glowing coals/ in my mind

04. Spit and Gristle

So tired and sick of pretending
The truth is too hard to ignore
False information unending
Slander just to even the score
Make me think I'm unhealthy
Make me think I'm in need
Broken psyches unhinging
Indefinitely
*Oooh what a high it is
Oh what a lonely biz
Until it's pointed at you
These lines are all that connect me
Instantly don't make a sound
You think your piece can protect me
Well they're layin' all over the ground
Contentious crude and unholy
Help a neighbor in need
Slappin' leather with Cochise
And watching him bleed
*Oooh what a high it is
Oh what a mighty biz
Until it's pointed at you

05. Roger Over And Out

Bucket of blood/ the wild angels creep
Night of the blood beast
Humanoids from the deep
Women in cages/ comin' up from the depths
Piranha rages/ Walter Paisleys's the best
*Beast with a million eyes
Teenage caveman/ giant leeches feed
Drive-in dementia/ exploitation's the key
Masque of the red death
Vincent Price isn't dead
Big bad mama/ the trip screws with my head
*Beast with a million eyes
Symmetry/ Got a hold on me
Sanity/ Is a mystery
Trinity/ Get's the best of me
Destiny/ Be the death of me

06. Blues For Mephistopheles

The dawn electric/ What the morning brings
The age of Methric/ How the night owl sings
The angels eulogize their pastor
Recognizing their master
Unschooled fanatics/ In a boxing ring
I choose to be/ The stone in Davids' sling
The dark recalls the Devils' laughter
Echoes of the sweet hereafter

07. Tomorrow's Dream

Well I'm leaving tomorrow at daybreak
Catch the fastest train around nine
Yes I'm leaving the sorrow and heartache
Before it takes me away from my mind
Send me love and I may let you see me
Send me hopes that can spin in my head
But if you really want me to answer
I can only let you know when I'm dead
When sadness fills my days
It's time to turn away
And then tomorrow's dreams
Become reality to me
So realize I'm much better without you
You're not the one and only thing in my heart
I'll just go back to pretending I'm living
So this time I'm gonna have to depart

08. Straight Up Boogaloo

My Type of blues drones on and on
I think the solo should service the song
Jimmy Reed is all to blame
Brownie Mcghee and Sonny the same
*I love the Kings/ Oh Lord they send me
B.B., Freddie and the Pres.
My type of blues flows on and on
May it stay that way
Yeah I'm kingbee/ You got to move
You can's arrest me/ For playing this groove
But when you left me/ A dozen times
Drown in my blue moonshine
I'd rather sip on the gasoline
From the tank of a stretch limousine
Not much a fan of those modern blues
Gimme the Hook, the Wolf and some booze
*Yeah I love the Kings/ Oh Lord they send me
B.B., Freddie and the Pres.
My type of blues flows on and on
May it stay that way
From Bessie Smith to Mavis Staples
St. Louis Blues by W.C.
But when you left me/ A dozen times
Baby please don't go
Some will say it all sounds the same
But not to me/ I'll carry the flame
I'm just a Midwest boy at heart
But gimme a stage/ I'll tear it apart
* I love the Kings/ Oh Lord they send me
B.B., Freddie and the Pres.
My type of blues rolls on and on
I hope it stays that way
I'm gonna miss you too
The Straight Up Boogaloo
It's a Straight Up Boogaloo!

Lyrics : "Born Ugly" (2011)

01. Born Ugly

i'm the truth that's as long as the tooth in my jaw
i'm the schoolboy who's lost all his faith in the law
the gods have been had/ our hopes on the line
sun-dried on the vine

i'm the thunder who spoils all your slumber at dawn
i'm the savior who's told his behavior is wrong
the gods have been had/ flawed by design
sun-dried on the vine

gun lobby heads/ tea party goons
left by the right/ slaves to the news
it's not what you say/ it's goals undefined
harder to say/ easy to sing/ vision is gold/ ugly is king

lines in the sand/ holes in our shoes
left by the right/ slaves to the news
dreams left for dead/ flawed by design
harder to say/ easy to sing/ vision is gold/ ugly is king

02. Blood Meridian

long through the desert at noon/ out of the haze i see them clear
i lost my saddles too/ burned by a crooked auctioneer

hard livin' on the plains abandoned
banditos with their holsters free
coyotes on a trail to skin my hide/ if my horses get through
down on you

creep like a lizard of prey/ the air of surprise is on my side
i'm aimin' for 3 this day/ just to keep myself alive

scalp huntin' in a burst of madness
banditos with their holsters free
coyotes on a trail to skin my hide/ if my horses get through
down on you

horse tradin' on a foal abandoned
banditos with their holsters free
dust settles on the eve of abject time/ if my horses get through
down on you

03. Home Free

don't blame the hunter/ just blame the beast
it's not the hunger/ must be the feast
so said the jeweller/ it's just a stone
and if i wander/ will it lead me on home

are you running?

if not the farmer/ must be the seed
don't blame the sermon/ must be the priest
dance hall is empty/ for sake of art
it's worth defending/ with every beat of my heart

are you running?

run from the weather/ endure the freeze
don't let the ending/ dictate the means
so said the jeweller/ it's just a stone
and if i wander/ will it lead me on home

04. Clean Break Blues

hey boy watcha starin' at?/ aww you're knotted up with the blues
warm shadows on the wall before you
hey baby won't you marry me?/ yeah there's nothing better to do
just end it when i start to bore you

send for the loons and stand 'em in line
trash another room on somebody's dime
struck by the way it seems/ don't let 'em say that i tried to warn ya
blame it on the thought detectives/ wonder who's the most affected too

stone played like a broken kazoo/ a comb and paper machine
up down ain't no in-between no
lonestar swingin' in a dirty saloon/ i'm slingin' suds like a fiend
last call if you know what i mean

treading lagoons or sailing the nile
the cleaner the break/ the quicker the smile
struck by the way it seems/ the coast of maine down to macon georgia
blame it on the thought detectives/ wonder who's the most affected too

carry the tune/ hold it high off the ground
warding off the loneliness with its sounds
finding the perfect way/ to say i've tried but it's time i leave ya
summon up the thought detectives/ wonder who's the most affected
i gotta keep my heart protected too

05. Notes From Underground

i've been writing/ all night
recognizing martin eden's plight
is it morning?/ not quite
blurring words/ the cadence just not right

just gotta ride it out/ no time to settle down
i'm a fool and a fake
there's ones who wanna believe/ there's ones who need to deceive
i only know that i know nothing

i've been writing/ all night
trying to channel dostoevskys' light
is it sickness?/ or spite
dying to make this bildungsroman fly

just gotta write it out/ the page a battleground
i'm a fool and a fake
there's ones who wanna deceive/ there's ones who need a reprieve
i only know that i know nothing

06. Dear Theo

a peasants hue/ tills his fields all alone
i'll paint him blue/ 'cause i'm a long long way from home

it's my state of mind/ crows rise from the fold
with unfailing eyes/ know that my paint is my life
my countryside
i write to you/ 'cause i'm a long long way from home

all these starry skies/ i hope you see them too
i'll paint 'em blue/ 'cause i'm a long long way from home
i'm a long long way from home

07. Losing End Blues

are you goin' my way?/ hitch a ride
i'm on the losing end/ i take my lumps in stride

one is not a number/ it takes a champ to figure my mind
i won't leave ya/ the best is yet to come
let's blow this scene and leave 'em behind
hitch a ride

are you goin' my way?/ hitch a ride
i'm on the losing end/ these scars are hard to hide

take my hand i need ya/ your touch can pull this thorn from my side
i won't leave ya/ the best is yet to come
your smile is all i need to survive
hitch a ride

misery sure loves company

08. 6 To Midnite

the lamp is burnin'/ fog it shrouds the street
the carriage churnin'/ maiden claws the seat
the wolf is howlin'/ a gruesome serenade

when i'm alone/ it takes two to pray

terror lurkin'/ horseman calls his steed
the moon is scowlin'/ cue the wilhelm scream
witches burnin'/ village had their say

when i'm alone/ it takes two to pray

6 to midnite/ fog it shrouds the street
the night electric/ mud up to his knees
heads are rollin'/ horseman wipes his blade

when i'm alone/ it takes two to pray
i'm doin' three to four/ the devil's five and 6 away

09. Sturm Und Drang

three's the reason/ 3 don't lie
storms' horizon high tide
ghost is keelin'/ to and fro
hump submerged in the foam
crew is reelin'/ now's the time
all hands braced on the nine

a soul's just a toy to be played with
bits of ferment on the move
they can't believe what he's sayin'
sold his poor heart for his muse

ghost in pieces/ wrenched and torn
cursed the day he was born
london eden/ wolf's the sage
drown the words on the page
crew is reelin'/ now's the time
all hands braced on the nine

i'll just agree what he's sayin'
bits of ferment on the move
what's there to keep me from playin'?
sold my poor heart for a tune

10. Hats Off To Mr. Beardsley

the helpless princess gave a little scream
carrousel his cut was sharp and was deep

the barber left the room on pointed feet
they promptly hanged him on meridian street

illustrations bourne of feverish dreams
a fractured beauty that is not what it seems

herodias as an insolent queen
the savoys' pages filled with jesters and fiends
they just arrested oscar wilde as a crowd starts to boo
oh what can they do?

the book is yellow but it's turning them green
the masquerade portrayed as far from pristine
i'd like to toast him 'cause i know it's only faith and taboo
oh isn't it true?

12. Kitchen Sink Blues

not much time/ much to say
all these thoughts here i'd rather i'd rather not try to explain
not much time/ much to say
need the sun but i'd rather stand out in the rain

quite content to let dylan just take me to school
like michel de montaignes' thoughts on riots and rule

not much time/ much to say
i'd love to play the guitar like my man brian may
not much time/ much to say
love my people who hang at the cadieux cafe

walk through strawberry fields and watching 'em grow
fills my heart just like smile and caroline no

not much time/ much to say
posing questions can lead me deep down in malaise
not much time/ much to say
as for answers i'd rather not give them away

thank the ones who implore me to sing them a song
screw the ones who dare tell me i can't sing at all!

13. Last Words

you can't keep me down
i know my sun will rise soon
blessed be the sound
of the tide vs. the moon
i've strayed and i've sinned
oh so lost in the blues
just a voice on the wind
i know the breeze will ring true

Lyrics : "On With The Show" (2008)

01. Motown Blues

(1)My town's on its knees, the light's burnin' low
The word on the street is all we have, we've ever known.

(2)It's not what we've seen, it's not what we're shown
It's the tunes we carry on, that make it home.

02. Slow Curve

(1)I just can't take it that much longer! This muddy stench is getting stronger.

BRIDGE
Leave it alone, while I'm taking the fall and you think I'm doin' ya wrong
Blacken my eyes while your singin' that same old song... I'm doin' you wrong.

(2)I wish you'd dig this bed I made you, no amount of songs could ever sate you.

REPEAT BRIDGE

(3)I just can't take it that much longer, that money spent was money laundered.

REPEAT BRIDGE

03. Just Another Fool

(1)I was only / feeling lonely, you were wonderin' if I was alright.
I was takin' / what you're shakin', I was just another fool in a line.

(2)You were usin' / I was losin', I hung on while you you bided your time.
When my feelings / hit the ceiling, you were gone and I'm wonderin' why.

BRIDGE
I've been your joker for a week or two, you think I'm still in love with you-know-who.

(3)Now you're sinkin' / in your drinkin', gettin' lost in a bottle of wine.

CHORUS
I thought your lovin' was my priority
I should of listened to what they was telling me,
I'm too caught up in the lies that you're sellin' me.

REPEAT VERSE (2)

BRIDGE
I've been your joker for a week or two, you're movin' on no matter what I do!

(4)Now you're sinkin' / in your drinkin', gettin' lost in a bottle of wine.

REPEAT CHORUS

04. All Around You

(1)Getting late boy / ain't you heard the new? The paddy's parked and they're waitin' on you.
Get it straight boy / don't deny the clues. We just found what you're tryin' to lose.
What you're tryin' to lose.

(2)Lie in state boy / time is yours to choose. Lace it hard like you're tyin' a noose.
Jump a freight boy / hide behind the booze. You can't hide when we're gunnin' for you.
When we're gunnin' for you.
yeah, we're comin' for you.

CHORUS
Never choosin' to see until you're face down
Try to bury it deep until you breakdown
Always fightin' for sleep 'cause it's all around
It's all around
It's all around you.

05. On With The Show

(1)Strayed Down underground like your mama say
Lone highway ridin', horizon ablaze/mind in a haze.

(2)Wide-eyed, true and tried never know their names
Thieves in a lineup, they all look the same/harder to blame.

BRIDGE
I hoped for so long, the sunrise would lead me on home.
Tried of waiting / I'm gettin' on with the show.

(3)Westbound wraparound, Cobra money dreams
Couches and buyouts and truck stop cuisine / saps your esteem.

(4)Hometown broken down, lowend on the mend
Long for my lineup, my songs and my friends / my heart's on the fence.

BRIDGE
I've known for so long, I just couldn't make it alone

Cue the fade-in / I'm gettin' on with the show.

(5)It's just what we owe, on with the show
It's all that we know, on with the show.

06. Somewhere Down The Line

(1)Say what you're gonna say
It doesn't matter 'cause I feel like I'm on my way.

BRIDGE
But now you got me all out of rhythm
I'll just blame myself 'til you're forgiven
Next time you see me you'll know that feelin'
Somewhere down the line.

(2)Blame if you're gonna blame
Though I'd feel different but somehow I feel the same.

BRIDGE
A dozen suitors, bust me for chewin'
Actin' so naive but you know just what you're doin'
The leavin's easy, feels like I'm stealin'

CHORUS
Somewhere down the line the skies won't be so sunny
All alone, you'll be thinkin' 'bout me honey
Somewhere down the line, there'll be no overstatin'
Come on home, honey I'll be waitin'
Honey I'll be waitin' (Repeat)

07. Curbside Constellation Blues

(1)Glass on the road, it's only seen at night
Spurned and alone, he's just tryin' to make things right

(2)Hands on the level, a dime might ease his plight
Cause but no rebel, he's just tryin' to make things right...
He's just tryin' to make things right.

(3)Eyes in the shadow, he sees through my disguise
Drowned in the shallows, he's just tryin' to make things right.

(4)Sign on the corner, it's hard to sympathize
Spurned and alone, he's just tryin' to make things right...

He's just tryin' to make things right.

CHORUS
With the shoes he doesn't own
With a coat that's barely sewn
Left to dangle in the breeze
Left alone at night to freeze

REPEAT CHORUS

08. Down Below

(1)You think I'm wrong / I think you're right
Won't let it go without a fight
The sense you make makes me want to explode
You're barely in the known
When you're searchin' for another complex code
I'll leave it down below.

(2)You've thrown aside your heavy load
You're taught to break before you've bowed
When it's time to face the up you need to own
You'll be the first to know
The team I'm on is always in first place
When I'm down below.
(3)I think you're wrong / you know I'm right
My sense of black makes sense of white
Just take an axe to your overblown point
And cut it down to size
When your thoughts are all plagiarized
If you're listening to bad advice
When pretension is just a cheap disguise
You'll know you're down below.

09. Never Know Why

(1)If you leave me / I don't mind
Schemin' hearts like yours ain't hard to find
If you want me / let me know
Time will tell before you bleed me slow
Time will tell before you bleed me slow.

BRIDGE
I know you want me, c'mon and try

You made the rules, but I'll never know why.

(2)If you leave me / I don't mind
Thought you'd break my heart, well get in line
If you need me / let me know
Schemin' hearts they always whisper low
Schemin' hearts they always whisper low.

BRIDGE [2]
The lines you sold me, the times I've tried
You made the rules, but I'll never know why.

SHUFFLE BRIDGE
[1]You never told me you loved me
And I'll never know why
You led me on moved my piece like a pawn
The board was all in your mind

[2]I let your highness control me
But I'll never know why
You kept me close haunt my scene like a ghost
To which you've always denied.

(3)Please believe me / I'm not blind
I'll make your rivals if I'm so inclined
If you want me / let me know
Time will tell before you bleed me slow
Time will tell before you bleed me slow.

REPEAT BRIDGE [2]

10. Get It On

(1)People train don't leave from Stubbville, unlessin' you're a sheep or a hog
Broke down in a cowboy town so I best be gettin' along
Got down on the farmer's daughter, a little cutie in St. Marie
I didn't mean a thing to her and she didn't mean a thing to me.

CHORUS
I gotta get it on / get it on / get it on through
Just to get it on / get it on / get it on with you.

(2)Cuttin' heads in a dive in Memphis, layin' low in San Antoine
Drunk, dirty but I scored some loot countin' cards and rollin' the bones
Diggin' holes for the mob in Tucson, a few more than I cared to see

Some fake who was on the take but it's just better him than me.

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
"The man's" on my shoulder, those good ole boys won't leave me alone
The nights are getting colder, and I wish you were keeping me warm
First thing if I get home, we're gonna get it on!

REPEAT BRIDGE

(3)Got my mind right on a chain gang, and I swear I've changed my ways
Upstate where they set me straight in the hole for thirty days
I'm on the next train to Motown and I'm rollin' straight home to you
On track if you take me back then I tell you what I'm gonna do.

REPEAT CHORUS

11. Motown Blues (Reprise)

 

Lyrics : "The Muggs" (2005)

01. Need Ya Baby (words & music by The Muggs)

You gotta love me baby, You don't believe me but I don't know what you say.
I need ya baby, I want ya baby, I need ya baby, gotta-gotta be my lover, be with me...

You gotta want me baby, I don't believe you, but you don't hear what I say.
I need ya baby, I want ya baby, I need ya baby, gotta-gotta be my lover, be with me...

I need ya baby, I want ya baby, I need ya baby, gotta-gotta be my lover, be with me...

02. Gonna Need My Help (lyrics by McKinley Morganfield, arrangement by The Muggs)

You leave home in the morning, you don't come back until night, don't cook me no food, but I swear that you'll treat me right.
You gonna need, you gonna need my help, I said...
Don't have to worry, I got every little thing comin' my way.

You can read out yer Bible, you can pray to the Lord, you can go on to Church, but I swear, it won't do you no good.
You gonna need, you gonna need my help, I said...
Don't have to worry, I got every little thing comin' my way.

You get up in the morning girl, with yer face full of frowns, you know I ask, "What's the matter?" and you say that yer puttin' me down.
You gonna need, you gonna need my help, I said...
Don't have to worry, I got every little thing comin' my way.

03. Rollin' B-Side Blues (words & music by The Muggs)

Hard road runnin' down, I ain't comin' home too soon, hots on for nowhere, I'm laid out on the cutting room...
I'm just rollin' with the parts I gotta play, where I hit all my marks, and call it a day.

They've been tellin' me, I'm wastin' all my time on you, stuck on the b-side, I can't move 'til you tell me to.
I've been thinkin' 'bout the parts I gotta play, but my head and my heart, get in my way.

Hard road runnin' down, I ain't comin' home too soon, hots on for nowhere, I'm laid out on the cutting room.
I'm just rollin' with the parts I gotta play, where I hit all my marks, and call it a day.

04. "Monster" (words & music by The Muggs)

Not much, is what I settled to be, I got flies all over me, you sold my sight, and left my eyes.
Tried hard to walk away, "Leave it where you found it", isn't that what you said?
Tried hard to save the day, this is for the young ones pissin' their lives away.

I know, yer tellin' stories of me, but I, I gotta story for you, you keep the truth and sell the lies.
Tied down and washed away, "Listen to the ocean", isn't that what you said?
I tried to save the day, this is for the young ones pissin' their lives away.

Tried hard to save the day, this is for the young ones pissin' their lives away.
Tied down and washed away, "Leave it where you found it", isn't that what you said?
Isn't that what you said?

05. Should've Learned My Lesson (words & music by The Muggs)

Should've learned my lesson, my baby's come and gone,
Should've learned my lesson, my baby's come and gone,
Should've known the difference, between what's right and what's wrong.

Should've count my blessings, before I left that town,
Should've count my blessings, before I left that town,
Should've known the better, before you strung me around.

Should've learned my lesson, my baby's come and gone,
Should've learned my lesson, my baby's come and gone,
Should've known the better, before you strung me along.

06. White Boy Blues (words & music by The Muggs)

Bill Heid, Heid, Heid, the blues all change from day to day,
Bill Heid, Heid, Heid, those long-hairs just don't make the grade,
We revved it up, and knocked it down, 'til the groove was black and blue, now they'll have to live with the mess,
'Cause there ain't nothin' wrong with those White Boy Blues.

I get by, by, by, I keep on movin' every day,
I get by, by, by, I got them blues in every way,
Walked the walk, and talked the talk, 'til there's nothin' left to say, keep on fightin', nothin' left to lose,
'Cause there ain't nothin' wrong with those White Boy Blues.

Bill Heid, Heid, Heid, the blues all change from day to day,
Bill Heid, Heid, Heid, those long-hairs just don't make the grade,
Walked the walk, and talked the talk, 'til there's nothin' left to say, keep on fightin', nothin' left to lose,
'Cause there ain't nothing wrong with those White Boy Blues.

07. Hard Love (words & music by The Muggs)

Every time you left me guessin', you had an answer for the fool.
I'm up for all yer suggestions, but I've had enough for two.
With a pint of love and a fifth of reason,
All I feel turns to hard love waiting for you, I was waiting for you.

I ain't one for yer bitchin', find another ear to chew.
You made a name, and you blew it, I guess a hard love fell on you.
With a pint of love and a fifth of reason,
All I feel turns to hard love waiting for you, I was waiting for you.

08. Said & Done (words & music by The Muggs)

I'm holding hands with a stranger, my head is full of disease,
But everything's gonna be alright.
You said yer life was in danger, I didn't wanna believe,
But everything's gonna be alright.
No use thinkin' 'bout tomorrow,
Salvation just outside my reach,
Gotta steal, beg, or borrow,
Just to get a little peace.

I'm staring at my reflection, and only thinkin' of you,
and everything's gonna be alright.

I couldn't help my reaction, I knew you wanted me to,
But everything's gonna be alright.
No use thinkin' 'bout tomorrow,
Salvation just ain't what it seems,
Although my heart is filled with sorrow,
Until I see you in my dreams.

09. Underway (P.A.Green, arrangement by The Muggs)

Instrumental

10. If You Please (words & music by The Muggs)

Tell me baby, you got me on my knees,
Tell me honey, you got me on my knees,
Give me baby, a little lovin', if you please.

Drive me crazy, I'm goin' outta my head,
Drive me crazy, I'm goin' outta my head,
Give me lovin', or I might just end up dead.

Tell me baby, you got me on my knees,
Tell me honey, you got me on my knees,
Give me baby, a little lovin' if you please,
Ohh if you please, ohh if you please,
Ohh if you please. Ooh!

11. Doc Mode (words & music by The Muggs)

Don't lean on me, I can barely hold my own,
Don't lean on me, I think I'd rather stand alone,
When you have money son, well that's, so hard to keep,
And when I'm diggin' holes, I make them deep,
Sittin' on the outside, sittin' on the outside.

Don't call on me, I hear voices of my own,
Don't fall on me, I'm down-hearted don't you know?
When you have tremors bad, well they're, so hard to shake,
Could go cold turkey though, but you can't stand the weight,
Sittin' on the outside, sittin' on the outside.

Don't lean on me, I can barely hold my own,
Don't lean on me, I have problems of my own,
When you have money son, well that's, so hard to keep,
And when I'm diggin' holes, I make them deep,
Sittin' on the outside, sittin' on the outside.

 

Lyrics : Miscellaneous Tracks

Leanin' Blues

1. Hypnotized my mind is hazy
My feet doth lead me to my grave
Get my lean on soon
Stare at my candle matinee

2. Mesmerized my eyes betray me
The frauds and shams are here to stay
Get my lean on soon
Their words just seem so far away
What I want to say

[Refrain]
I don't wanna choose
Midnights and leanin' blues
Lord can't you hear what I'm trying to say?
I don't wanna be
Tied down in misery
Lord don't you leave me this way.

3. The silence wraps its arms around me
The wind it chills me to my shoes
Get my lean on soon
The bender's all that really soothes
It's the only truth

[Repeat refrain]

Bite of the Weredog

1. Run run, run away
From the Bite of the Weredog
Blank stares and rotting corpses
From the Bite of the Weredog

2. It runs in the moonlight
It stalks in the starlight
It stalks in the moonlight
It's coming to get you!

It's the Bite of the Weredog

3. Run run, run away
From the Bite of the Weredog
Beasts bay in Satan's voices
You've been bit by the weredog

4. It calls in the moonlight (howl)
It stalks in the starlight
We call in the moonlight
We're coming to get you

It's the Bite of the Weredog
