Virtue and Vice Lyrics

Think of me
I'll think of you
We better think
This whole thing through
Sometimes I'm so clumsy

You talk to me
I'll talk to you
You cut the fat
And we'll both chew
You know we're both hungry

I feel so alive today
That's all that I wanted to say
I hope that it stays this way
If not I will be okay

Say another prayer
Save another life
Kiss me on my head
And tell me
Everything's alright
'Cause I can say it one
Or I can shout it twice
All there really is
Is virtue and vice
Virtue and vice

Cry to me
I'll cry to you
Sometimes the pain will only do
You know I'm not kidding

You laugh with me
I'll laugh with you
At all the stupid things we do
Tomorrow we'll be happy

Sting Me Lyrics

If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You have the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me what you're seeing
This submission is a tired tradition
It's everyone's sacrifice

Well believe you me
I've got nothing up my sleeve
Except a heart and a chip on my shoulder
Yes I'm young and don't like getting older

Yeah but can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Come on my sweet little thing
What new things can you show me today
I got one question
I believe it's subjective
What is a wasp without her sting?

I don't want to sound bitter
Yeah you touch me just like murder
Living ain't so easy
When all I want from you is to sting me

Can you sting me

Soul Singing Lyrics

I've been down
Cascading and blue without a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk and honey lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Lets disappear and we'll hide underground
And we'll get high and we'll feel safe and sound
It comes around
Around

Chorus:
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Come on now come on now

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life a smile and not a frown
The sound
The sound

Chorus

Cypress Tree Lyrics

So you found yourself a killer
The one with blue eyes
I guess the blood stain on the blanket don't lie
I guess I saw it coming
Like a boy I just kept running
But through this crime I have survived

Chorus:
They're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
The crowd gonna cheer when the see you swing
Yeah, they're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
Tell me now do you believe?

Glory Halleluia,
I raise my glass up to you
And I bow my head with utmost respect
And I think its only fair to warn you
That there's a storm that's coming up on you
And like a wind and the rain
My words are direct

Chorus

It's a funny word "friends"
You get beginnings and you got ends
I guess I see you when we're ashes again

Chorus

Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye Lyrics

With my winter time
My idols and stage fright
In another night
Where the lights are loud and bright

One dream from waking up saved
Too shy to hold in the rage
I know no luxury
Of knowing what your eyes read
I know one million ways
To always pick the wrong thing to say

A love that you never gave
Always a time zone away
It's not out of spite
I know what's right

Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye

Sometimes a memory
Only sees what it wants to believe
And what's filled in between
Are days and nights that don't mean a thing
Such a simple suicide
A second chance never tried

And you don't understand
I need a helping hand

So you think that you've seen it all
Is that a fact?
So out your mouth a dictionary
Spouts about this and that
You got your do's, your don'ts
Because and why
I don't trust no one who don't
Take their own advice

Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye

You've Got to Hide Your Love Away Lyrics

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she’s gone I can’t go on
Feelin’ two-foot small

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

How could I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I’m in

How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

Nebakanezer Lyrics

Nebakanezer never knew
He left his needle outside in the rain
And it rusted through
He kept twenty-nine blackbirds
but only one flew
Spent most of his time making holes
And licking his wounds
Nebakanezer lost his wife
She took her diamond rings and was
gone before the light
She left one satin shoe and a
very dull knife
She left one satin shoe and a very dull knife

So tell us what the sorry singer might do
All of his friends complain
That they got the flu
They ain't sick in the head
They look like the living dead
And that's not cool

No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

She Talks To Angels Lyrics

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna' make everything alright

Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

(Repeat Chorus)

She don't know no lovers
None that I've ever seen
And to her that means nothing
But to me it means, means everything

(Repeat second verse)
(Repeat Chorus)

Young Man, Old Man Lyrics

Chorus:
Young man crazy
Old man wise
Some folks real
Some just jive
Young man crazy
Old man wise
Sun, stars, earth
Moon, sky, tides

Its been tough, livin rough
But you're here to stay
Six feet under the ground's
Not as hard as it sounds ok
Getting high, seeing with three eyes on a rainy day
Well I've been dusted, busted and blown away
Getting in your ear with nothing to fear
Let the music play
Big or tall it's gonna hit you all
Or get out the way
Come along baby, sounding strong baby
What I say
We all got lines and at the end we're all gonna pay

Chorus

Murder in mind and this time baby its all real
Take the devil aside its time to make a deal
Wash the blood if you want
But this truth you can't conceal
I'm gonna roll on, driving wheel

Chorus

Sun...
Stars...
Earth...
Moon...
Sky...
Tides...

I said if anybody wants some
Let me hear you say

Song of Love Lyrics

And it's all in the way you wonder
If you think you're learnin' how
Pick up your feet you don't have to pick up a gun
You can prod the sacred cow

You know the song of love
It's empty now
As it always seems
To have been
You can go on home

Used to be down to tear gas and clubs
What do you think about grenades
You know like a frag
Nonsense is as
Nonsense does
The judge's eagle promenades

You know the song of love
It's empty now
As it always seems
To have been
You can go on home

The good book tells us
"Thou shalt not kill"
What is the meaning of this phrase
Is it sometimes right and sometimes wrong
Depends if you're foolish or brave

You know the song of love
It's empty now
As it always seems
To have been
You can go on home

Title Song Lyrics

You know I never wanted it to be like this
I've been lost in sandstorms
Left naked by your kiss
In the face of God
Of God and his poison leaves
The way it feels right now oh yeah
I really want to believe

So then you look on me with sad black eyes
Well I heard it coming yeah
And you know I lost my smile
In a January that never ends
The gold affections of my past
Are now just rusted tin, yeah

Well I really want to see you again
I miss my lover, as my best friend
Yeah baby I , I want you right by my side
With you baby, I'd spend all my time

They said they'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
Yes, with a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
If I could be your title song

So every now and then I get sad, yes it's true
Well you've known me long enough now baby yeah, it's nothing new
Like, like, when I'm feeling bad
I feel underwater I feel blue
And you know the only thing I ask from you baby
Well, is can I swim to you, yeah

Well I really want to begin this again
Cause I miss you as my lover, I miss my best friend
Oh baby I, I just want you right by my side
Yeah cause with you girl I would spend all my time

Said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Yeah

Well baby, I, yes I want to begin this again
Well cause I miss my lover, and yes I miss my best friend
Oh baby you know I want you right by my side
Down with you baby, I'll spend all my time

We said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
A girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could only be that way
I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Well I won't be lost for long
If you could be my title song
My title song

Hard To Handle Lyrics

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You gotta' come back for more

(Chorus)

Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now

Yes I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

(Chorus)

Boys come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now
Yes I am

(Repeat Verse 1)

Steady Rollin' Man Lyrics

I am a steady rollin' man
and I roll both night and day
I am a steady rollin' man
and I roll both night and day
But I ain't got no sweet woman, woo-hoo Lord
To be rollin' this way

I am the man that rolls when icicles are hanging on the tree
I am the man that rolls when icicles are hanging on the tree
Why can't you hear me begging mama, woo-hoo Lord
Down on my bended knee

By Your Side Lyrics

When your lost
I am found
When you slip
I hold my ground
When I fall
Please take a bow
And when you're up
Just remember I am down

People looking for
Fortune and fame
They don't know
That it's all the same
It's like any other game
You know there's a loser
But it's alright

When you feel your heart is breaking
When all your friends are faking
When its giving and no taking
I will be by your side

I've been over the hill and back
Survived every kind of attack
It's been a few years at that
As a matter of fact

Good luck is just good luck
You don't go hungry if you got pot luck
I've been down
But never on my knees
I see the forest for the trees

Nonfiction Lyrics

I don't know my telephone number
But you kiss good and I'd like to
See you tomorrow
And I don't beg, I pay, I don't barter
And if we had a child I'd like a son,
Not a daughter
'Cause she'd be just like you
You know that would not do

I'm no builder, I'm no gardener
I sing some songs, have a friend
Who's a photographer
There ain't no other language
I know how to speak
Some like their water shallow
And I like mine deep
Tied to the bottom
With a noose around my feet

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

I like to dress up like the jury
To eat like a king, to poke fun at clergy
To talk like dirt
To love you like tar
But never fall in too fast
With my north star
While you pull your hair out
I buy the drinks at the bar

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Remedy Lyrics

Baby, baby why can't you sit still?
Who killed that bird out on you window sill?
Are you the reason that he broke his back?
Did I see you laugh about that?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it glide?

Can I have some remedy?

Remedy for me please.
Cause if I had some remedy
I'd take enough to please me.

Baby, baby why did you dye your hair?
Why you always keeping with your mother's dare?
Baby why's who's who, who know you too?
Did the other children scold on you?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it slide

Boomer's Story Lyrics

Come and gather all around me
Listen to my tale of woe
Got some good advice to give you
Lots of things you oughta know
Take a tip from one who's travelled
And never stopped a-ramblin' round
'Cause once you get the roamin' fever
You never want to settle down, boy
You never want to settle down

I met a little gal in Frisco
And I asked her to be my wife
Told her I was tired of roamin'
Goin' to settle down for life
Then I heard the whistle blowin'
And I knew it was the Red Ball Train
And I left that gal beside the railroad
And I never saw the gal again, boy
I never saw the gal again

Saw that girl again
Never Saw that girl again
I left that girl beside the railroad
And I never saw that girl again

Travelled all over the country
I travelled everywhere
I been on every Branch Line railroad
And I never paid a nickel fare
I been from Maine to Califor'ny
And from Canada to Mexico
I never tried to save no money
And now I got no place to go, boy
Now I got no place to go

Listen to a Boomer's story
Pay attention to what I say
Well, I hear another train a-comin'
Guess I'll be on my way
If you want to do me a favor
When I lay me down and die
Just dig my grave beside the railroad
So I can hear the trains go by, boys
So I can hear the trains go by

Hear the train go by
I can hear the train go by
Just bury my bones be side the railroad
So I can hear the train go by
