Track Name: Waking Up On Coney Island
Waking up on Coney Island
Where the F train goes to die
I nodded off and blew threw Brooklyn
Woke up on the other side of an unholy night
I only half remember but I can’t quite forget

I would do it different somehow
If I knew what I know now
Once I slip out of this old skin
Close my eyes and count to ten
And do it all again

If the weekend lasts till Wednesday
And I hit the wall at the end of the line
And who I am in the morning
Meets what I turn into at night
I stepped on my ass downtown
Everybody’s laughing
When I wake up I’m alone

I would do it different somehow
If I knew what I know now

If the sun forgets to shine
Should I take it as a sign
That the world is moving on
Baby you should too cause you know I’m near
I’m nearly gone

Waking up on Coney Island
For the hundred millionth time
I missed my stop at Church Street
And I hit bottom at the end of the line
Track Name: Seven Shades of Grey
Picking up speed on Old New Hope
She Lives back in the hills where the air is thin and the rain is filled with the holy ghost The nightmare fades away Seven Shades of Gray
Sour milk bath and a sacrifice she uses gasoline and chain
Set me free from this blue devil’s freaky appetites Set me free Seven Shades of Gray
I burn out she takes me in let’s me lay my half-assed hustle down
I’m on the mend Supernatural Open your doors my friend I know you will
I’m under the spell again of technology and pills
I burn out she takes me in let’s me lay my half-assed hustle down
I’m on the mend Supernatural I lost control of the house we built it all just fades away I’ve grown cold in the shadows of Seven Shades of Gray
Your healing hands peel the spook away
I’m free at last of Seven Shades Seven Shades of Gray…..
Track Name: Dear Danielle
Dear Danielle tell me all about prison
I don’t know why I haven’t written my dear Danielle
I ain’t been myself since they sent you up and there ain’t no way
I can wrap my head around one-thousand days
Do you walk around in circles every morning?
Do you talk to the sun as if it was your friend?
I guess we never had a chance never had a chance in hell
and I miss you now my dear Danielle
Dear Danielle some kind of survivor like a deep sea diver in the dark before the dawn
It’s in the blood glass on glass moving way too fast with your warped idea of fun
and I hope it’s not too much for you to carry See how it sugars out before you jump in You know it’s never too late never too late to get back what you lose
Ain’t that the truth ain’t that the truth
I heard that you found God it figures that’s where he’s been hiding
If you could put in a good word for me
Chowchilla I hope you have gone easy on Danielle
Dear Danielle yeah it’s a hell of a thing and there ain’t no way
I can wrap my head around one-thousand days
Dear Danielle tell me all about prison
I don’t know why I haven’t written my dear Danielle…..
Track Name: If I've Been Insulting
If I’ve been insulting
I hope you know it was only out of fear
Fear of being found out

I carried a torch all my life
For some misguided drunken teenage dream
Signifying nothing

I know
I know
I know there’s a paradise somewhere
Gotta believe there’s a way back in

I don’t know the answer
I don’t know the answer
Why won’t you release me
Why won’t you release me

If I have been violent
I hope you know I fell asleep at the wheel
I been playing chicken with myself

Raise the flag to zero
You know I would if I could
These feet run to evil

Overgrown commitment-phobe looking for a way back in
Partied too hard and lost his way

I don’t know the answer
I don’t know the answer
Why won’t you release me
Why won’t you forgive me
Track Name: Work (Chronically Full of Desire)
When I went to school I was all confused
At the drone and the drain of fluorescent light
Hide out in bathroom stalls Sleepwalk down Yellow halls
I’se weird like the horns of a snail
Through a tunnel with a bend Hang-gliding in the idiot wind Chronically full of desire

Lord loves the working man What does all he can
Lord I’m paralyzed Hell is other people
I’m happy when I’m sleeping Tell me did I sleep too long
Bring the world to focus in a dying brain
Bear trap with metal teeth
When ever left to my own devices I drink myself to sleep

My brain is waterlogged Can’t do no normal job Why am alive What did I expect Dreamed when I should of slept
I just wanna die Like a dog that runs in space
I dream of Cherry’s face Chronically full of desire

It’s breakfast 1993 Transformers Tang and Shredded Wheat
Hey Mom do you feel down today Are we OK

When I went to school I was all confused
At The drone and the drain of fluorescent light
Hide out in bathroom stalls Sleepwalk down Yellow halls
Why am I alive Through a tunnel with a bend
Hang-gliding in the idiot wind Chronically full of desire
Track Name: Pop Song
Do you remember my first pair of boots Can you recall where we were cuz I sure do
I tried to match your giant’s stride and I slipped in the snow
Cherokee North Carolina so long ago
I don’t know if I’ll be able to go on without you Father can’t you stay
Without you how will I be brave
Nothing has changed Pop I still take my measure from you
How many times has your example shown me what to do
These days I ask this old photograph of you and a dog
Say what would you do if you were me Poppa I feel lost
I don’t know if I’ll be able to go on without you Father can’t you stay
Without you how will I be brave
I remember you with a chainsaw in the sun
When I asked you why you said son cuz it’s gotta get done
As your body betrays you your mind’s got power to burn
Your still teaching me lessons that I’ll never learn
Who will I make proud now there’ll be nobody left to impress
Could you please not leave me here Life is no fun without your love
I don’t know if I’ll be able to go on without you Father can’t you stay
Without you how will I be brave
Track Name: I Count the Bricks
I count the bricks behind the bar
And I take off like an F-15
When I reach the highest star
There’s an angel waiting there to welcome me

In the blurry headed morning
The angel’s painted face is passed away
Out the ashes find me at these glass controls
Moving forward out of fear of something on it’s way

I dream of money I dream of girls
I dream a beating heart at the center of the world
I dream a home I have never known

I count the bricks behind the bar
And I take off like an F-15
When I reach that highest star
There’s an angel waiting there to welcome me

Angel, I can hear you talking in your sleep
Soft voice of every leaf on every tree
Whispers that the world was built for me
Track Name: Shockwaves
Can you see my ribs?
Cuz they’ll be disappearing soon
From now on I’m living like a king
Now that I’ve found you now that you’ve found me
I’d walk a million miles to see your face and sideways smile
The shape of things to come I love our love our love has just begun
These eyes have opened as the sky begins to turn
Two hearts in motion and we won’t stop now
Shockwaves again my love Shockwaves and everything has changed
It’s a mystery what you do to me
Our love grows and pushes out beyond the edges of a shadow of a doubt
Do you remember when we stole a kiss under the bridge
you whispered me your secret name
like a bolt from the blue sky straightens out a twisted mind
I was alone I was lost in the dark
Baby take me home cuz once I get my hands on you
Shockwaves again my love Shockwaves Shockwaves and everything has changed
it’s a mystery what you do to me…….
Track Name: GH&F
I can hear the rain inside your head as you lay where we came on your magic bed
Like a tired child under a broken spell like an exposed nerve in a diving bell
Get high and fucking all this snorting and sucking feels right
I dreamt of these kinds of wild nights
Doing new things making new friends in the city where I was born again
If I wake up dead I’ll have to sleep late
I am not made of rocks I’m made of chocolate cake
So eat me up you tiny girl eat me up
Into all your throats I bring a load of love to pour
Single tear white knuckle fist is this the edge of experience?
Probably not but it’s all that make sense and I’m just so innocent through all of this
Get high and fucking all this snorting and sucking feels right
I dreamt of these kinds of wild nights
Doing new things making new friends in the city where I was born again
I close my eyes and see color I have not cried in 13 years
Since my daddy left my mother I do my crying with someone else’s tears……
Track Name: Beggars' Law
Shadows that fly in the night bathed in religious light
Colored feathers of a giant bird scattered on the ground where the crime occurred
If someone disappears you know that where they go is worse than where they were or they would let you know
Colored feathers blonde brunette End of the world weather black and red
The dying the wounded and the walking dead
Naked as psalm with shiny skin to hell and gone on and off again
Wake me up and turn the tide gone past forever in the blink of an eye
Maybe I’ll never get out of bed this pillow’s not coming off my head
Spokes of light across the wheeling sky left to right like the sky’s on fire
By degrees we reach the sea
I need a Beggar’s Law the one we got was never really meant for me
Systems will all break down giant bird’s dreaming of the underground
A lonely ego lost in space locked inside a rusty cage
A burned out bus a war torn state in a galaxy that can’t be far enough away
I was time traveling north You were time traveling south
A mirror in a mirror with a mirror in it’s mouth
Passing though (it doesn’t) matter off falls the rust up goes the hammer
Forgetting place where we feel no pain pull the bolt and slide the chain
One by one my fears are gone Science says there’s nothing wrong with me
I need a Beggar’s Law the one we got was never really meant for me
I don’t know what it means
Systems will all break down giant bird’s dreaming of the underground
Take me to your holy man
I want to destroy everything I don’t understand Wax and leather wind and foam
I never knew there was a voice in my head until it was gone
I need a Beggar’s Law the one we got was never really meant for me
Systems will all break down giant bird’s dreaming of the underground….
