Track Name: embers
i burned my house down in 1883
i burned my house down
just to watch it burn
and i dont regret a thing

take the time and watch the embers burn
take the time and they will burn out
watch it burn
take your turn
watch it burn
watch it die
breed new life…
Track Name: rabbit in the garden
i wanna be like a rabbit in the garden
until they come and chase me away
i wanna be like a rabbit in the garden
id move on out to somethin else
i wanna live in the shadow of the mountain
where the rain falls down and cleans my head
i want my brain to stay at home inside the ocean
where codes lose shape and float away

why cant we all lend a hand
weve worked so hard to get ahead
why dont we just lend our hands
and make a plea for reality

i wanna scream like the owl in the twighlight
where no one’s awake to hear my cry
i wanna feel like the deer panting for water
oh quench my thirst and wash it out
i wanna burn down the forest i created
and grow back over the ash and


dust

why cant we all lend a hand
weve worked so hard to get ahead
why dont we just lend our hands
and make a plea for reality

why cant we all lend a hand
weve worked so hard to get ahead
why dont we just give a hand

i wanna be like a rabbit in the garden…
Track Name: heartbeats
oh, darlin take a chance with me
just turn around and you will see
i’m not everything
you want me to be

oh, darlin take a chance with me
i got these new shoes on my feet
and i’m not everything
you want me to be

oh, darlin take a chance with me
just turn around and you will see
i’m not everything
you want me to be

just take a chance with me…
Track Name: get it all
this growin citys got me down
these street lights keep me up
but its what i bargained for
when i left my home

my brothers my sisters
have i done you wrong
when i got caught up
in my own song
but its all a part of this
and theres no changin it now

and i cant seem to get it all
i cant seem to take it all in

theres somethin been drivin me
to back away from the sea
and im tired of fighting it
but i must keep on fighting it
anyway

every story has a cause
and mine seems to be lost
but im just a small part of it
and were all a part of this

and i cant seem to get it all
no i cant seem to take it all in…
Track Name: plenty of time
my grandpa he lives on
reading all alone
hating strangers help
searching for his mind
angry at his life

three generations there
as he was pushed down the hall
stonefaced clenching his jaw
speaking no words at all
does he remember us
or has he completely close up

we all felt the weight
but the children in the room
gave smiles to fill each face

his would remain the same
his decline was all i knew

i want to be an old man too
but jolly and sharp as a tooth
full of wisdom to share
grandpa my gift to you
will be to do what you could not do

ive got plenty of time to keep myself around
you know that ill try to never let you down
Track Name: buzzards
the other day i met jacob
i asked him ‘why do you where fur’
he said ‘its what my mother commanded
and i listen to her’
later on i saw esau
i asked him ‘how does it feel
to be betrayed by your brother’
he said ‘leave me alone
im lookin for a meal’

up walked aristotle along with plato
i overheard them debating about the government
plato turned to me and asked me
what i think about republicans
i said ‘ill have an answer
right as soon as esau finishes his stew’

on the television i saw jesus
on a stage with mary queen of scots
he took her hand they walked behind the curtain
no one gave a second thought
out came who else but cleopatra
and all the men perked up
she said ‘ive got a new boyfriend’
and up stood donald trump

i heard the chimes of freedom laughin
walkin on a long and dusty road
the air was hot the grass was brown and growin
the sidewalk was made of gold
and i was overcome with a funny feelin
like i was bein watched
i overheard some buzzards whisperin
‘can’t wait to eat your f***in’ soul…’
Track Name: nothing new
oh summer king on your throne
i know the words you speak serve only you but the air is getting cold and soon youll sit alone and wonder why your wells gone dry
its nothing new

oh winter queen your snows so deep you take what you like and pile it high but soon the ice will break and youll fall into the lake and your bitter fruit will rot like you
its nothing new

oh knight in green your break’s not clean when all you seek is her body your pride you must let go because eventually youll be alone with your face down on the floor in an empty room
its nothing new

oh princess pea your smiles so sweet you love to play your games you play them well but soon well all catch on and all your masks will fall off and youll wonder where your beauty’s gone
its nothing new…
Track Name: make it out
theres a gathering in the morning
six days a week never stop moving
they say ‘are we gunna make it out of here’

so many talks about hopes and dreams
‘what would you do if you won the lottery
we’re never gunna make it out of here’

‘i got three kids i got three mouths to feed
gotta work the shift
gotta pay utilities
are we ever gunna make it out

but i will teach my daughters properly
what time i have i will try to set them free because i want them to make it out of here

ill be patient ill do your dirty deeds
ill even let you tell me how i can speak
because someday i’m gunna make it out
someday i’m gunna make it out of here

you want the world
you want to be a new-aged king
you want to gain control and you want everything
but tell me are you gunna make it out
of here’

i saw a burning bush
yeah i saw a burning bush…
Track Name: american man
saw an american man
with blood on his hands
he never gave up
never had enough

talked to a travelin’ man
hes been to every land
but hes never been down my road

take a ride now
take the long way home

saw an old-school band
with guns in their hands
they never shot no one
they didnt have to

knew a preacher man
he always took a stand
until his wife ran off
with another man
take a ride now
take the long way home…
Track Name: the ghost of buddy wright
hello olivia

Track Name: mississippi murder
i left the body there yesterday
blood dripped from his hair yesterday

momma ill never come home again
not that you care
look underneath my old bed
theres money there give it to G

grandma please forgive me
youre my hero
feel free to fill in the fire pit
i dug in the yard
if you ever hear from my kid
please tell him im thinkin of him
i hope he stays outta this mess
and grows up to have a life
much better than mine

and i would do it again
id kill that man again

he knew i ran these streets
and he had the guts to challenge me
cracked out no money to spare
he said hed pay up eventually
and he married my b***h of an aunt
they ran their lives into the ground
i dont care if youre family
nobody should ever challenge me

the cops are all after me
and i know its my aunt
who ratted me
but (truth be told) im not that angry
i kinda wanna be back in the clink
sure life is terrible there
but its terrible here and everywhere
life is much simpler there
im well known
i run the yard

so id do it again
id kill that man again…
