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

Stare It Cold Lyrics

Under the weather
I never got better
Wrapped up in my disease
Mile away, she want to count my day
Look a little older in the light

Under the weather
Feelin' very heavy
Never up for no air

Sea legs start to wigglin'
And sick I'm still feelin'
Just know I never cared

Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold
Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold

Never thought about it
And never no questions
Seein' where I've gone wrong

No kiss made it magic
'Cause that old girl has had it
Then it's time for me to run along

Jam - Black Moon Creeping Lyrics

Sleeping eyes sleep awhile
And let me get to know your language
If I believe all I see
I would hate to be around for the dawn

Sleeping eyes stay awhile
And give me some cause to rejoice
A parody of the scene
Where my three wishes were granted to me

What you got buried in your backyard?
What secret do you sleep with when the black moon come
Sleeping eyes please come clean
I'm not giving you the third degree
When you live with no man's time
Ain't it hard to find some peace of mind

Sleeping eyes don't you cry
And don't pretend this is not an ending
Your history yes it seems
Has been swept out with the leaves

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

Descending Lyrics

Have mercy baby
I'm descending again
Open your eyes
This time it's sink or it's swim
No sermons on ascending
No verdict on deceit
No selfish memorandum
No confusion for me

Curses
Curses and clues
A feast for fools
Have mercy baby
And hand me downs
It was just a few years ago
You'd hand me ups and map
Right out of town
But I would let it slide
Like mercury
Silver and quick
Poisonous and deadly
So deadly

Pre-Road Downs Lyrics

I have kissed you
So I'll miss you
On the road I'll be wantin' you

But I have you
'Cause I love you
And you have me 'cause you love me too, yeah

Felt forsaken
You'll awaken
To the joys of livin' hand in glove

And then I will
Lend you my will
And your days will be filled with love

Don't run the time approaches
Hotels and midnight coaches
Be sure to hide the roaches

Felt rejected
As expected
You rejected all the thoughts of words

So I'll pray with
You to stay with
Me forever and we'll make it work

Elevated
You're elated
'Cause I've waited a year for you

If you're thinkin'
What I'm thinkin'
Then I'm gonna make my love to you

Don't run the time approaches
Hotels and midnight coaches
Be sure to hide the roaches

Could I've Been So Blind Lyrics

How could I've been so blind
So empty that I've never felt warm
Can I spell it out
Turn myself out of my home
Lookin' like a fool
Feelin' even worse than it seems
Tryin' hard as nails
Beleivin' only in myself

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes
Sometimes

But my greatest fear
Paint a smile from ear to ear
Alone and cryin'
Living like this is no better than dying

I tell you baby things are gonna' change
Looking like we were caught out in the rain
Feeling lonely
That's the way it goes
Sometimes

Chorus:
Could I ever have been so blind
Hardest thing I ever had to do
Was stand up straight and tell it all to you
Look you right in the eye
Tell you baby sorry but I have lied

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes

Sometimes
(Repeat Chorus 4 times)

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

Downtown Money Waster - Jam 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

Jam - 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

This Is The Way Lyrics

This the soup
That i believe in
This is the smoke
I'm always breathin'
This is the way
I share my breakfast
This is the way
I share my sentence

I know i know
I should lay low
I should stand tall

This is the beard
I'm always growin'
I know they're here
I see them floating
Her empress beards
They float so holy
Their beards are here
They gently hold me

Well who knows who knows
Yeah i may come home
Yeah i may return

This is the way
I'm always leaving
This is the soft
Voice of the evening
This is the way
I hear my father
These are the flames
That drown the water

Well i knew i knew
I could stand tall
I could lay low

This is the sound
That swims inside me
That circle sound
Is what surrounds me
This is the land
That grows around me
And these are the hands
That come in handy

Well we've known we've known
We've had a choice
We chose rejoice

Torn And Frayed Lyrics

Hey let him follow you down,
Way underground wind and he's bound.
Bound to follow you down,
Just a dead beat right off the street.
Bound to follow you down.
Well the ballrooms and smelly bordellos
And dressing rooms filled with parasites.
On stage the band has got problems,
They're a bag of nerves on first nights.
He ain't tied down to no home town,
Yeah, and he thought he was wreckless.
You think he's bad, he thinks you're mad,
Yeah, and the guitar player gets restless.

And his coat is torn and frayed,
It's seen much better days.
Just as long as the guitar plays
Let it steal your heart away,
Let it steal your heart away.

Joe's got a cough, sounds kinda rough,
Yeah, and the codeine to fix it.
Doctor prescribes, drug store supplies,
Who's gonna help him to kick it

Well his coat is torn and frayed,
It`s seen much better days.
Just as long as the guitar plays
Let it steal your heart away,
Let it steal your heart away.

Miracle To Me Lyrics

Come on off of your rooftop
Come on down to the street
Well I've got something to tell you
Your secrets I will keep
Tell me why have you been crying
Why won't you look me in the eye
I'm just trying to help you
And I just need to know why
Please won't you let me try

Chorus:
Be my secret, be my joy
Be a miracle to me
Be my lover, baby be my friend
Be a miracle to me

Want to sleep in your moonglow
In my mind your smile I keep
Head over heels I go
Like a dream from a peaceful sleep
This time I know I'm in deep

Chorus

Girl From The North Country Lyrics

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

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

Ballad In Urgency Lyrics

Here with me
And this price you pay
Just a wishful dream could be blown away
Ask yourself for better or worse
Because what's the use if it's just good luck

A black cat has crossed my path
Tell me what's good luck about that

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

Excuse me please
For my definition
But deeper still are my convictions
Urgently I wait to hear an answer
While I misconduct
A sad lost anthem
An anthem like you have never heard
Have you heard something so absurd

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

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

Blackberry Lyrics

Hey Blackberry, How you taste so sweet
Hey Blackberry, tell me what you see
Tell me is it interesting
Hey Blackberry pay some attention to me

Hey Blueberry look at my bumblebee
Hey Blueberry you know he never stings
And he only hums for me

I need some L-O-V-E-N to make me happy
You got to be L-U-C-K-Y to git
With a girl like Blackberry

Hey my cherry, coming up my street
Hey my cherry, you make it hard to breathe
Look what you've done to me
Hey my cherry, be sure to keep your nose clean

Shake Your Money Maker Lyrics

Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker, and then

I got a girl lives up on the hill
I got a girl lives up on the hill
Says she gonna love me but I don't believe she will

You gotta shake your moneymaker
Shake your money maker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker, and then

I got a girl and she just won't be true
I got a girl and she just won't be true
She's locked to the bridge, she won't do a thing I tell her to

She won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her moneymaker
She wanna roll her activator
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't

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)

Yer Blues Lyrics

Yes I'm lonely wanna die.
If I ain't dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
In the morning wanna die.
In the evening wanna die.
If I ain't dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
My mother was of the sky.
My father was of the earth.
But I am of the universe
And you know what it's worth.
I'm lonely wanna die.
If I ain't dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
The eagle picks my eye.
The worm he licks my bone.
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan's Mr. Jones,
Lonely wanna die.
If I ain't dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
Black cloud crossed my mind.
Blue mist round my soul.
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock and roll.
Wanna die yeah wanna die.
If I ain't dead already.
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
