Wounded Bird Lyrics

Off the tracks
Lost the rail
Trying to squeeze a little blood
Out a rusty nail
When your thirsty
Thirsty

Behind your eyes
You feel the burn
As your downhill ride takes a
Solemn turn for the lonely
Lonely

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

It's like you spent a long time
In an empty bed
In an empty room
With an empty head
Full of nothing
Nothing

Now all you got left
Is the skin of your teeth
And the red in your eye
Six feet deep
To get ready

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

The waiting is over
So let's roll in the clover
Time for a head full of stars
Let's pull back the curtain
Only one thing's for certain
Well, we don't have very long

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

Set your mind to fly

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

Cosmic Friend Lyrics

When the wind whispers to me
From somewhere behind the trees
And it tells me crazy things
Like my head is full of bees
And at night they hum for me.

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
Its not everlasting
Its bound to turn around
Need a little sweetness
A little reason for your rhyme
I got something for you
A little sugar for your mind
Hear the bells ringing
Send it down the line
Thank you for the sharing (hey no problem, man)
I'll get you back next time (cool)

Chorus:
My friend, the cosmos is calling
Sayin' we all should be shining

Don't you be a stranger
We like you hanging around
Be thankful of the laughter
Praise for the sound
When you're feeling lonely
You know just what to do
Put on track eleven
Get on with the groove

Chorus

Now we've reached the ending
I'm sad this song is gone
We can start at the beginning
And we can all sing along

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
Its not everlasting
Its bound to turn around

Chorus

Hotel Illness Lyrics

Oh good heavens, baby where's my medicine?
I must have left it outside with my etiquette
The undertaker's rule of thumb
It's hard to talk with a novocaine tongue

This room smells like hotel illness
The scars I hide are now your business
I can't seem to make hair nor hide of this
No baby love is not a punishment.

Hypnotized by your rotten behavior
This week's fashion is last year's flavor
I got a head full of sermons and a mouth full of spiders
The politics of the world's greatest liar

So tell me baby is it true all those things that they say about you...

Oh, Josephine Lyrics

Diamonds hold the mirrors
And the spoon it holds the stars
It's been a long time baby
Since I seen the sun rise like this
Make a wish and call it "maybe"
And give me one more kiss
Ooh, I like it like this, I like it like this

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Still dreaming through the comedown
Still fillin' every page
C'mon and touch me baby
Before I turn to rust

You know there ain't no other
It's not a matter of trust
Just sometimes love ain't enough
Love ain't enough

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

For a while I was dealing in tears and powders
For a while I was strung out beyond my means
I lost at love while climbing down the ladder
Just looking for the song to set me free

No waiting for redemption
No leaving love behind
You gotta know where you wanna be
It gets cold outside

It's too late to play it safe
So let's let it all ride
Let's let it all ride
Let it all ride

Oh Josephine
You're dressed in black
Oh Josephine
Your eyes are blue
And I know now
That there's no turning back
Oh Josephine
What will we do

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Poor Elijah - Tribute To Johnson Lyrics

Poor Elijah, living on the bayou way
Poor Elijah, he had to take over raising fourteen kids
When his daddy got caught stealing chickens from a neighbor one day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah, born the son of a slave
Poor Elijah, he was damn near blind when he died last week
From working in the sun for the man like a dog all day
Work on Elijah, work on

Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah
Poor Elijah

Singing a song
A song about a man
Nobody hardly knows him
Nobody hardly knows him
Said nobody hardly knows him
Nobody knows him

- Tribute To Johnson -
Good morning Robert Johnson son
You built your life before your song was sung
People agree and now you're number one.
So sad to think we had to wait so long

It keeps on getting better every day
And maybe someday soon, people will say
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people
Ain't nobody here but good people

No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here
No, nobody here

She Gave Good Sunflower Lyrics

I've been lost in the headlights
All night long
Said i've felt taller, yes I heard
the dealer's song

Say babe don't mark me absent
I only missed out by a fraction
Be the sun that bursts through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on this ground

chorus:
Say don't pretend to me
I beg and i plead, your sunflower I need
Thought nothing would surprise me
I was wrong now i see
Come on baby and just do me
if you please

This made me reminiscing
About the honey we made
I feel warm in your blizzard
And your flood I crave
I won't abuse my anger
I promise you no lecture

Come be the sun bursting through my clouds
It's hard enough just living on the ground
chorus

Downtown Money Waster Lyrics

To my low down downtown
Money waster
Your only saving grace
Is that i like to taste ya
But your flower is spoiled
Too easy to make ya
You got a .38 and your book of revelations
I got a .44 and a load of temptation

I am a rounder, like to round around
Two for one at the store on the corner
Little girl like to drink and sniffin' powders
Like the bars that stay open after hours
Like the boys that go 24-7
Too many late nights and you don't go to heaven

Thorn In My Pride Lyrics

Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your heartaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It's hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Are you wanting inspiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breating?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shine

God's Got It Lyrics

If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

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

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution Lyrics

Caught a rusty engine out of sawdust town
Made a deal with the man who shook 'em all down
So put a little grease on my axle now
I've been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag
So let's take it easy to avoid any snags

CHORUS:

Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see the solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee
So let's keep on runnin'
Through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
And don't you want to see the ship
Go down with me

I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor
Gonna run you ragged til you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same

Chorus

I've been restless, baby
I'm feeling wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Save me child
Save me child

Chorus

Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down?

Space Captain Lyrics

Once while travelling across the sky
This lovely planet caught my eye
And being curious, I flew close by
And now I'm caught here 'til I die

Until we die, until we die
We're just learning to live together
Learning to live together
Learning to live together

I lost my memory of where I've been
We all forgot we could fly
We all changed into peaceful men
And we'll return now to the sky

Chorus

We've got to get it together
It's getting better and better
we've go to get it together
It's getting better and better

Chorus
