Track Name: Homecoming
Homecoming

Like a mad man on the run
I’m leaving this job half done
Two thousand miles I’ve come
Being chased by the morning sun
There’s something about the highway
That makes a man feel so alone
Goodbye whiskey nights and lonely days
Baby I’m coming home


Late night country diner
like motor oil in my guts
Dust and road behind me
And a beat up old Mac truck
I got one eye on my top speed
You know smokeys got a brand new gun
Good bye motel nights and lonely days
Baby I’m coming home


Kansas keeps on rolling
Colorado got me climbing up
Utah is watching every move,
Until the flash of Nevada
From the desert to the high sierras
Down to the bridges of the bay area
Hello city lights I’m on my way
Baby I’m coming home
Track Name: Flies
Flies

Staring down the bottleneck
The fruit flies gave up their lives for it
Should I wash it down or pour it out
Some for the fallen spilled out on the ground

How many roads can a man walk down
when he’s piss drunk and staggering home
I can’t be trusted to be left all alone

Stumbling through the kitchen, Rummaging through the fridge
Fell down in the bathroom, Woke up the kids
Now everyone’s crying, screaming and fighting
I used to be a good man, now look at me now

How many lives can a man bring down
Before his freedom is taken away
I can’t be trusted with loved ones in vain

Staring at an old brick wall
She’ll come pick me up after one phone call
The neighbors will hang their heads silently
Save a seat at the end of the bar for me
Track Name: I Forgot
I Forgot

Ever since I was a young buck I’ve staring into space
Born to good fortune filled with tough luck
Uninspired and displaced
I swear I remember you from somewhere
A distant name, familiar face
Please remind me one more time, I’m living life lost in a daze

I just forgot, I just forgot
You may think that I’m an asshole but I’m not
I didn’t mean to put you on the spot
It’s not that I don’t care I just forgot

Riding a tornado down the interstate
It’s so comfortable and strange
A dozen lifetimes on my book shelf, I haven’t even turned a page
I’m an honest and hard working man, can’t afford to act my age
Hours turn to days fade to months into years
It’s safe to say that it’s not just a stage

I just forgot, I just forgot, you may think that I’m an asshole but I’m not
Lately I’ve been feeling quite distraught, it’s not that I don’t care, I just forgot

Never mind those drunken promises, they just haven’t yet arrived
I never asked to be a part of this, just along for the ride

I just forgot, I just forgot, you might think that I’m an asshole but I’m not
I drink too much and smoke a lot of pot, it’s not that I don’t care, I just forgot
Track Name: Low Love
Low Love


Love me on the low,
It’s best that no one knows
We can never be alone
Be careful nothing’s ever shown
Your shoulder must be cold
Wear a poker face of stone
If you want to make it home
You’ll have to let it got
Love me on the low

Ghostly lipstick bleeding goodbyes on a glass
Secrets in a bottle whisper a message from the past
Sea sick with envy for insatiable lust
A lovely bullet wound from a lovers smoking gun
Woe is she

Love me on the low,
It’s best that no one knows
We can never be alone
Be careful nothing’s ever shown
Your shoulder must be cold
Wear a poker face of stone
If you want to make it home
You’ll have to let it got
Love me on the low

Meet me in the ally under the veil of night
The cloaking of a rainstorm guided by the dim streetlight
Shivering silhouette longing for an embrace
My shadow will appear with a kiss upon your face
Track Name: Buyin, Bi, By n Bye
Buyin, Bi By and Bye

The Circle keeps on turning
Bye and Bye, Lord Bye and Bye
There’s a better life awaiting
In the sky Lord in the Sky

There’s a hole in the bucket, there’s a hole in the ground
The rats are scrambling up the mast, the ship is going down
So long, farewell and thanks for all the cancer
You dirty rotten scoundrel lying bastards
So get in your automobile and join the parking lot parade
Or slowly turn to dust and bones just waiting for the train
Either way you’re going nowhere fast so c’mon and take a seat
And bask in the glory of the screen


The Circle keeps on turning
Bye and Bye, Lord Bye and Bye
There’s a better life awaiting
In the sky Lord in the Sky

The city is a cesspool abandoned and corrupt
Strip malls, suburban sprawls the land of Chinese junk
So lets all drown in alcohol and smoke holes in our lungs
Numb from wonderful prescription drugs
There’s poison in the water and feces in the beef
Mutant vegetables and Franken-chickens with no beaks
There’s slut and jocks and cops and bums
Lots of religious freaks
Teething on the tits of lady libery


The Circle keeps on turning, Bye and Bye, Lord Bye and Bye
There’s a better life awaiting, In the sky, Lord in the Sky

Oh, me oh my why oh why?
I don’t want to go outside
Into the oil fields on fire and plastic island in the Gyre
Bring on the wasteland robot zombie apocalypse
‘cause it’s obvious we shot and missed
that’s it so raise your fist and break the circle


The Circle keeps on turning
Bye and Bye, Lord Bye and Bye
There’s a better life awaiting
In the sky, Lord in the Sky
Track Name: April Fool
April Fool

Smile and nod, there’s nothing wrong
It’s just a rain cloud blowing by
It’ll all work out somewhere, somehow
On the day after you die

So just close your eyes and dream of paradise
Ignore the nightmare right outside
The count’s 0 in 2, so what can you do
April fool the Joke’s on you

Worn out sneakers on your feet
Kickin’ a can down the street
Passing all the people you don’t wanna’ meet
It’s not fair but it’s true so whistle me a tune
April fool, the joke’s on you

Drowning in whiskey you drink to your old friend
But there’s no punch line at the end
Try and play it cool, but you were born to lose
April fool, the Joke’s on you

So sing a song and carry on
we’ll remember when you’re gone
I once was lost and now confused
April Fool, the joke’s on you
