fuck you and your figured out world,

keep that shit over there

I've got plenty of my own to think on

all right here

loud and clear

cause you need to understand

what you're about to hear


Hyaaa! go on, get

Hyaaa! go on, get


and you can take your judgements, stuff em in a jewelry box under your bed

sleep on em every night so they stick in your fuckin head

I don't need your visions dancin around with mine

got plent of my own, still gotta wash brushes out with turpentine


Hyaaa! go on get

Hyaaa! go on get

Hyaaa! go on get

I said Hyaa! now, go on, get


my soul's pretty clean, dirty in good spots but neat

I don't need no ninety-nine percent germ killer to wash my feet

so to each his own, so some say

well to each his own, and I say


Hyaaa! go on get

Hyaaa! go on get

I said Hyaaa! go on get

Hyaaa! now, go on get

Hyaaa!

Hyaaa!

Hyaaa!

Hyaaa!

Track Name: Big Game
Big Game


along forty days- in these frozen pines

where the cold breeze plays- and the Kodiaks dine

on heather grays- milky white bones

with no way- to get back home


but I’ll be damned if I die here, all alone

with my cries to hear- left for no one



along forty graves- in these dusty whirls

buried by the diamonds- behind their curls

and all the gold- that brought em home

to rest in this land- of the unknown


but I'll be damned if I die here

among dusty bones and dried tears

yeah I be damned, if I'll die here



a long forty fights- to make it to this hill

green but burnin- day, night and still

stones and souls- are being eatin alive

with no way- anybody's gonna survive


but I’ll be damned if I'll die here

covered in mud, guts, and bone

with no way to get back home

but i'll be damned if I die here
Track Name: Crazy Lonesome
well I'm a good ol' boy, raised in the hills, of ol' north caroline

where if you don't take to talkin to yourself

ain't much way for you to save your mind

and if you see me at the general store, you might think that i'm doin fine

or sittin round a campfire, shootin shit and drinkin ol' moonshine

but don't let it fool ya girl-that's just the way i keep from cryin

witha smokin, drinkin, pickin and singing, tryin my damnest to keep a smile



cause I'm Crazy and lonesome, crazy cause i'm lonesome all the time

I'm crazy cause I'm lonesome, but i'm lonesome cause I'm crazy all the time



if I could just find a girl, with pretty eyes and flowin hair that shined

who'd sit and talk and touch a while, maybe that'd work to ease my mind

but there ain't no girl in the whole world, that'll give these ol' crazy bones the time

and even if i found me one-she'd turn tail soon as she heard this wine



I'm crazy lonesome, crazy cause I'm lonesome all the time

well I'm crazy cause i'm lonesome, but I'm lonesome cause I'm crazy all the time

crazy lonesome, crazy cause I'm lonesome all the time

well I'm crazy cause I'm lonesome but I'm lonesome cause I'm crazy all the time


as i look up at the moon, i think I'm one of a kind

then i hear the birds and trees and know that way of thinkin is blind

as I peer up at the stars, i realize that i am doin fine

and i don't need no higher power or another soul to give me some sign

even if she's beautiful, brilliant, true, sweet, pure and kind

well she'd only drive me crazy and I'd wish that i was lonesome all the time



cause I'm crazy lonesome, crazy cause I'm lonesome all the time

well I'm crazy cause i'm lonesome, but I'm lonesome cause I'm crazy all the time

crazy lonesome, crazy cause I'm lonesome all the time

I'm crazy lonesome, but I'm lonesome cause I'm crazy all the time

ya take it around the horn boys

Track Name: Bloody Boots
Bloody Boots


Crystal clear darlin, never can stay

Crystal clear darlin, true as true is today

She comes to me all innocent but I've known it all

She walks up my stairs smillin but she's headed for a fall

Blood on my boots, blood on my boots again

Stomach falls to my shoes again

Bloody on my boots, ya blood on my boots again

Bloody boots, ya bloody boots on my soul



Twenty years workin for fingers down to bone

Twenty years scratchin in my hole, self lost all control

With swallowed pride ya the "man" has me, insides feed on envy

The Boss man trys screamin again, time he was washed of his sins

Blood on my boots, ya blood on my boots again

Stomach falls to my shoes again

Blood on my boots, ya blood and boots oh ya

Bloody boots, bloody boots on my soul



Twisted inside, a head full of strife

Spinnin outside, spawning, rotting, life

As I look out I see so clear but no one hears

And maybe one day I can reach my mind but just not this time

Blood on my boots, ya blood on my boots again

Stomach falls to my shoes again

Bloody on my boots, Ya blood on boots oohh ya

Bloody boots, ya bloody boots on my soul, ya my soul ya
Track Name: Passenger
Passenger On A Train


Well I’m a passenger on a train and it’s rollin off the track

Tearin through your fields and plowin straight into your backs

And there ain’t nothing I can do, ya nothing you can say

To stop that awful hurtin death from comin your way

Ya that train goes where it wants, no matter where you lay them tracks



Well me and cussin billy were an awful evil pair

Always thievin, fightin, killin anybody anywhere

Til smoke and steel brought em down, never to be seen again

Ya that train runs too fast, and it ain’t never gonna be your friend



Well I’m a passenger on a train and it’s rollin off the track

Tearin through your fields and plowin straight into your backs

And there ain’t nothing I can do, ya nothing you can say

To stop that awful hurtin death from comin your way

Ya that train goes where it wants, no matter where you lay them tracks



Well me and sweat Cherie were thinkin bout tyin the ol knot

But no matter our thinkin, it turned out to be not

When that engine fire went wild, nearly burned both of us

Ya that black steel’s got style, but it ain’t nothin you can trust



Well I’m a passenger on a train and it’s rollin off the track

Tearin through your fields and plowin straight into your backs

And there ain’t nothin I can do, ya nothin you can say

To stop that awful hurtin death from comin your way

Ya that train goes where it wants, no matter where you lay them tracks

Well now I've thrown you out just like a pair a'jeans too worn

Cause tonight I'm an alcoholic, come tomorrow I'm trucker reborn


If tonight I should meet my maker, that means I don't have much time

Cause I'm ona die or find Jesus, in this liquor of corn

cause tonight I'm an alcoholic, come tomorra I'm trucker reborn



I'm gonna have to break the forth wall on yall

Well, sure as that money in yer pocket is debt

We're all liars



And I don't care how shit housed I end up tonight

Whether I go and piss myself or I loose my sight

Cause tomorrow I'll be ridin high, honkin that deisels horn

cause tonight I'm an alcholic, come tomorrow I'm trucker reborn

now that I've plucked that woman from my side like an evil thorn

so tonight I'm a drinkin, til I'm good and torn

cause tonight I'm a alcoholic, come tomorrow I'm trucker reborn
Track Name: Howlin'
Howlin


I got a long wide desert ahead

twenty four hours, I'll be dead

these boots are crackin from the heat

two long barrels with one lead to eat

blazin dust is burnin my skin

deep floatin horizon's razor thin

and this wind

is howlin

round my head

round my head
Track Name: Rain And Sand
Rain and Sand


rain and sand, stain my sleeve

hurt and hope is all I breathe

distant lands, third eye dreams

are they calls or warning screams


stevisha!

stevisha!

stevisha!


so I walk this faded trail

through daunting worlds and fairytales

follow me, my conscience cries

with murder still, strapped at my side


stevisha!

stevisha!

stevisha!


so I roam desert lands,

forest groves, and ocean sand

and as this time cascades on

crawling nights flee my dawn


fill my hands, dirt and love

rise and fly or root in mud

and rain,

and sand

stain my sleeve
Track Name: Joe Cooper
Joe Cooper

and the moon was shinin

to light his way

now that joe has gone and made me weep

Track Name: Fire and Light
Fire in the Light



filin down the pins of a cold blue steel,

waiting for the days to drop into the til

as the fates go round a cold voice came

and the cold steel lies down as I strike this flame


and the fire in the sky rolls along

and the fire in the night calls you home

and the fire n the light burn your eyes

and the fires in the night tell ya the same lies


then a demons wisper said, boy watch your soul

watch your imortal soul turn stiff dead and cold

sure as I stand here, inside your frame

as this night ends it'll be you they blame


and the fire in the skys burn in your brain

and the fire in the night will burn all the same

and the fire in the light melts all your gold

and the fire in the night calls you back home


satan waits for me at the end of this dark hall

path all blacked out by my own minds fog

and the coffin lady tells me, I'll see you soon

and my eyes fade to gray as I reach that deep red room


and the fire in the light burns through my brain

and the fire in the night said I was to blame

and the fire in the light turns my gut to coal

and the fire in the night takes me back home
