Track Name: Gamblin' Man
I was born a wild child that became a gamblin' man
No tellin' where I'll go but I'll surely tell you where I've been
Another victim of your circumstance,
motivational thrills and cheap romance
Now It's time to carry on like the movers and shakers that brought us along

All the pretty people stick together, all the artists release as the common man settles
All the lovers like to watch the fighters fight, pushin twenty-four, pullin the rest of my life

No I don't care what they say, cause I don't listen anyways
No this is not a stigma but a labor of love

No No it's not over yet
We've got so much more to test
No No it's not over yet
We just started

All the dirty runs to every bastard son in a letter
I don't know if you know but it doesn't get better
All the winners try to sell me a soul twice
All the losers buy for my worthless advice

Track Name: Buffalo Bones
Baby I won't wait for you to pick the poison for your veins
And darlin I don't care about the money you want or the styles you wear
Flash back to a heart attack, relapse on facts of what you attract
You know what you want but you turn away, leavin lovers with a stutter
Dirty debts to pay

You make me shake, make me shake, make me shake all your shiver
You keep my hot head steady, heavy into a fever
Run away, run away from the faith you deliver
But your cold cold heart makes me a believer.

So honey come on down
I'll show you what I need
We'll do dances with the devil just to give him a tease
Black books for dirty looks can't teach you what you need to know
C'mon and follow my lead
I'll make you beg and I'll make you bleed


You say no two hearts are the same
My love is a game you can tame
I have to say I dissagree
My favors are locked, I lost all the keys
Track Name: Sugarwolf
Morrison you burn my skin
Break open the bottle my faith lay within
Your weathered face is full of cracks
Following the same old tracks
Your inhabitants break in black
As the lines burn the sides when you turn your back
Daughters into lovers, masters under covers
Forget your true colors and leave all your brothers behind

I'm addicted to the way you move
I've got a disease
Take me as you please

She smelled like whiskey, sex, and cigarettes
And her lips bled red from past regrets
She walked like light to a silhouette
Cleansing the wicked in her sweat
And she knows, yeah she shows
She had the beauty of a rose
And she knows, yeah she shows
That anything and everything goes

Stand with me in the comforting cold
In a city where we never grow old
Who says it never snows
It's with you in your bones
You take your girl home, another name you'll never know

Track Name: I Found Elvis at the Bottom of a Beer Can
Cut me loose so I can level this town
Got a new pair of shoes, no time for fuckin around
Keep it contagious and tell all of your friends
Turn your radios off, a new means to an end

No we don't know how your story goes but we've got a remedy for those
who are willing to listen for a new revolution

Trouble follows my kind
Our deuces wild and our aces high
We keep it dangerous for superstitious minds
Sugar coat mild strokes and waste our precious time


I've got a taste you know you want to test
A healthy dose of broken words you can digest
Cold cash lines trip my vital signs
To turn back time for a writers mind
We place our bets on an open debt
For a place in a cage and a chance to forget who we were
Tell me what you heard, its all a blur
Everything that you heard was lost between the slurs
Trouble follows my kind

Track Name: Cancer Free
She wrote all her poems for me
I lit all her smokes for her
She showed me things I couldn't see
So I gave her my apartment keys
We moved like cats under the sheets
Tasting the backs of our teeth
My friends would say she smothers me'
As I replied I love the high

Cut me down
Leave me to dry
Package me
Cause baby I'm cancer free

Can you piece it together, piece it together, piece it together when you haven't got a tether
Piece it together, piece it together, piece it together when your lace turns to leather

Her dress removed itself for me
My heart skipped it's beat for her
I left a package at her door
Of thoughts I left her on my floor
We fought like lovers losing taste
Cordial like drums to the bass
Easy for you to take my breath
I'd love to instigate your death


We kept our walls dark, tattered, and torn
I can't find love in this place no more
We kept our walls dark, tattered, and torn
I can't find love
You cover cover your wondering eyes
To smother smother your smoked filled lies

Track Name: Disco Romeo
I'll be your Romeo on rye
The Casanova of your time
It's 1974 again tonight

Kristine has got the golden gun
Carnations sent for Aprils sons
Patty will turn to steal your cash
Brothers get high off Johnny's stash

We've flashed ourselves into a rush
Mascara mistress penny lush


Dirty water caused the gates to flood
Pathogen traders from my blood
Bell bottom beauties on the street
Turn all my tables to repeat

We've flashed ourselves into a rush
Mascara mistress penny lush

I'm on that shit your parents got
Kickstart your heart to a blood clot
I'm on that shit your parents got
You keep it cool, I'll make you hot
I'm on that shit your parents got
