Track Name: 9 Pineapples
Help is on the way
Stars and dynamite
Believe in what you say
Ocean tides and electric light

Just peaceful sin
Typical American
You dream outside
Just a backwards stride

It's the way it needs to be
Telephone lines and falling leaves
You can't walk away
Rainstorms and suburban dreams

Love me like a rock
You hear the lights turn on
You dream outside
Just a flicker candle light
Track Name: When You Close Your Eyes
Gun up to my head I want your money not your life son
Money don't grow on tree there's nothing in this world for free
It's a rough road teacher man in cuffs satisfy your thrills
When you close your eyes for good
Silk trigger finger, golden gum drop in your water babe
Dirty money, devil scented woman you know I'm coming your way
A man behind you in the mirror, why do you do this to yourself?
When you close your eyes for good

You do your best to deny it
With your handful of defiance
You live so dangerously
When you close your eyes, for good

The night gets deeper young appropriate thing could you use some company?
A girl with her finger on the world and the taste of electricity
I see a dream in your cocaine eyes that I can't deny
I'll use a spoon to dig my grave it's just a slower way to die
When you close your eyes for good

She's got me wrapped up 'round her finger like some twisted prophecy
She bites her lips that you ain't supposed to kiss with the back hair in her eyes
She the small-talk, ghost-hit on the radio that never fails to lie
When you close your eyes

You do your best to deny it
With your handful of defiance
You live so dangerously
When you close your eyes, for good
Track Name: Fast & Loose
I want a microphone to know what comes and goes
I've never had the thought it's good to be alone
I cut the red tape and I paid for it thru my nose
Walk along the snow walls and make me my devils own

Throw your hands up in disregard
Put that feather in your cap
All out of sorts on an anxious seat
Fast and loose, but anyhow...

I've gone to Coventry and dated the prettiest twins
I thought I knew the ropes, I could balance to the bitter end
I want to be or to not and shift like the wind
Shout it from the rooftops and embrace your situation

Throw your hands up in disregard
Put that feather in your cap
All out of sorts on an anxious seat
Fast and loose, but anyhow...
Track Name: 32nd Avenue
I've fallen down so far, babe I don't know what to do
I'm tripping myself as I'm runnin' after you
And girl you know you've got to go out and dance
You spread your wings when you need to fly but you don't have a chance
I've got a vision that keeps running back in front of me
My eyesight is blurred and babe I can't quiet see

Babe I'm sorry for what it's worth
For one more chance I'd give up the earth
Just to see you smile one more time
It makes my sunshine

I'm walking home from the bar on 32nd Avenue
I can't keep my head out the gutter 'cus the memory of you
Say bartender will you pour me one more drink
You better make it strong 'cus I don't need to think
It's 3am when I stumble back home
You left me with nothing but a thank you by the phone

Babe I'm sorry for what it's worth
For one more chance I'd give up the earth
Just to see you smile one more time
It's like the sweetest lullaby
Track Name: Skippin' Nashville
Fill me up with freedom lies
Feels like I could die
Standing up right you make me feel like the king of love
Who can tell me?
When you can't say nothing at all
Who can help me?
When I'm confused on which way to roll

The southern city lights will shine on down the bayou
The broken sidewalks of New Orleans seem long gone
All the uptown girls walk down the street with the blues on their dresses
I'm skippin' Nashville to make it down to New Orleans

A four AM red and a coffee
And the ghost of all the things gone wrong
Chasing the night to fight the dawn
Send me down to drink with the slaves
When there's cash pouring from the sky
I can't save myself no, so I'll hang out in the clouds
I've been to hell and back again
With a barefoot rose and burning skin
Lit my cigarette and blew smoke in the devil's face
Made me a tombstone rambler
Playing the game of a wicked world
With nothing to lose but the blues in my suitcase

The southern city lights will shine on down the bayou
The broken sidewalks of New Orleans seem long gone
All the uptown girls walk down the street with the blues on their dresses
I'm skippin' Nashville to make it down to New Orleans
Track Name: Mirror Jumping
Jumped out of the mirror and what did I see?
A man on the island in the open sea
Swimming up fast he cast from shore
Caught a diamond eyed fish and
Threw her back to catch one more

I said "Hey man" have you tried a line
It's surely hard but you'll pick it up fine
You'll sip from the water and rise in the sand
You'll chop down a mountain with your own right hand

The dandy lion lions on a new spring prowl
They would eat the food if they only knew how
He looks out to sea and casts again
When up floats a bottle of moonshiner gin

A sip from the bottle kept him hazed for days
How fast it goes when you're living this way
Cork on the ground and sky in his eyes
He cried to sweet Mary and thanked her for her lies, Elija, Elija, Elija

The water's true
You're lies are blue
The air is free
One and one is three
Track Name: Buy Some Time
Seems like the end of the world and you need to be somewhere
You dig down to the bottom of your bottle of pains just to keep your head clear
It's a beautiful mystery how we all used to recognize ourselves
It's it ticking time bomb when you've got too much love and no soul to sell

You gotta to hit the floor
You gotta be some you gotta get up and walk away
You gotta be up tight
You gotta take off your mask and fool the masquerade

Now you've been so long in your love to do nothing but forsake me
Was it worth the battle and the contradictions to find what's underneath
Seems like I've been swept away by the red lights back to St. Charles Avenue
Digging the times and faces and loves just to make it back to you

You gotta to hit the floor
You gotta be some you gotta get up and walk away
You gotta be up tight
You gotta take off your mask and fool the masquerade

What you've seen here is already dead and gone
You've got to hold on to the moon light and wait for a little longer but
You can always buy some time, always buy some time
Track Name: Words in 6
Am I insane?
It's over now
It's not enough
A sudden silhouette
I'm molding to your crush

You know me to much
It's not me
Under the bus
A street sign junkie
With zoo keeper luck

They told me to lose you
Just turn the key
Un-accused and used me
Alarm clock half-dream
I'm back-porch smoking watching you leave

Am I an echo?
Please accuse me
I'll see her again
Floating in April
She floats like the wind

You know me too well
I'm not leaving
It's not the right time
You feel like lightning
When you bury your feet

They told me to lose you
Time would run me dry
Radio blues and bruised me
For the silence in your eyes
I'm back porch smoking watching you lie

They told me to lose you
Just turn the key
Un-accused and used me
Alarm clock half-dream
I'm back-porch smoking watching you leave
Track Name: Keep On Smiling
Just like the tales of blue skies
Flying down the mountain with snow powdered eyes
Just like a warm Phillie rain
Love just laughs while we dance and we sing
Like a Red Rocks summer night
With a mile high wind and the world spinning by
Like a Tennessee sea of green flowing in her hair, dancing in the breeze

All I need is my soul running wild
This fire in me is never going to change
Watch the waves part for her smile
I pray time let her love stay

Just like the Fourth of July
Fire the the heavens a blue as her eyes
Just like trees in the shade
Twisting up shadows on hot summer days
Like Christmas morning laying in bed
With sugarplum jokers dancing in her head
Just like the first hello
On the base of a mountain where this love light glows

All I need is my soul running wild
This fire in me is never going to change
Watch the waves part for her smile
I pray time let her love stay
