Track Name: Stingers
Street lights look like the answer
Them folks all know your name
Money eats you like a cancer
Life is nothing but the game

Belly full of vikes she grows warm
Duffel bag of saints says you cold
Nest full of bees says you swarm
Beginnings often endings for your soul

How many days can you drive
Eating stingers just to stay alive
Your straws been chewed to plastocene
If you in it you know what I mean

Blood thick from nicotine and sweat
Eureka when you reach the show
Was the work worth all that bet
Insanity it'll walk you through the door

Walk you through the door
It'll walk you through the door
It'll walk you through the door
It'll walk you through the door

Did you find a car that made you content
Did a dollar smile back at you
The love you seek it don't cost a cent
Be careful boy cause they know not what they do

How many days can you drive
Eating stingers just to stay alive
Your straws been chewed to plastocene
If you in it you know what I mean

If you in it you know what I mean
If you in it you know what I mean
If you in it you know what I mean
Track Name: Runner Runner
HMO CEO I lost my mind
United citizens mirage a matter of time
Apathy, apathy, gonna take you away
Until they got you convinced the night is the day

GMO CFO where will we go
Last fish caught and the last river flows 
Pump the well crack a rock no bd
Last drop found cut the last tree

Runner, runner, runner she gonna flush you out
Spades on the turn money what it's always about
No tides coming no time soon
Trouble born under a harvest moon

Only then only when the last wind blows
Buffalo falls production slows
Last warm night last day sunny 
Only then will men realize they can't eat money

Alcohol tobacco firearms it seems
I'll take two of each cause I know that CREAM
Forty ounce a forty cal and a pack of reds
Find me in Indiana when you find me dead

Runner, runner, runner she gonna flush you out
Spades on the turn money what it's always about
No tides coming no time soon
Trouble born under a harvest moon

Trouble born under a harvest moon
Trouble born under a harvest moon
Trouble born under a harvest moon
Trouble born under a harvest moon
Track Name: Mangrove
Fortune in my pocket says bravely done
Let it go your time will come
Dont't bother lying, washing windows in the rain
Skipping postcards over puddles

Let's go down to the Mangrove
We can fool around down there
Away from those wondering eyes
Loose ears and dextrose stares

Theres plenty of dreamers on the westside
I'm as guilty as the rest
I won't promise you more
If I know that I got less

Peace wains like the moons phases
Steadily seeking homeostasis
One day it will chase us, tripping on our shoelaces
Too stubborn for social graces

Let's go down to the Mangrove
We can fool around down there
Away from those wondering eyes
Loose ears and dextrose stares


Theres plenty of dreamers on the westside
I'm as guilty as the rest
I won't promise you more
If I know that I got less
Track Name: Dog In Durango
There is a dog in Durango chasing shadows across a kitchen floor 
Momma says its nothing she ain't seen before. 

The mountain tonight looks like the spine of a well lit man

He might not have money but he's doing the best that he can. 

Run, Run Andy for days 

Go find Reggie he'll chase your shadows away 

He'll never catch them 

That's one thing he don't know 

They never know where your coming from 

Or where you go 

There are women in a cantina counting wins on their red fingernails
Not the type to wear white you'll never see them where a veil
If you've got some attention they got some time for you
Just don't ever let em know what you do. 



Run, Run Andy for days 

Go find Reggie he'll chase your shadows away 

He'll never catch them 

That's one thing he don't know 

They never know where your coming from 

Or where you go
 
There are men in a cigar shop they got big plans for you

They gonna keep you chasing paper up and down sixth avenue
One day you'll catch it but you'll be old and grey 

You better have a dog like Reggie he'll chase your shadows away 

Run, Run Andy for days 

Go find Reggie he'll chase your shadows away 

He'll never catch them 

That's one thing he don't know 

They never know where your coming from 

Or where you go
Track Name: Wendover
Please be sweet,I won't brag when they come around. 

Driving a hard bargain, check my locks three times before I leave town. 

Theres a girl in Wendover, half way between heaven and hell. 

She gets off at midnight,calls me two times, and stops by my hotel. 


My baby can do it all, deals me aces, and tends the bar.

Drives me home when I've had too much conversation. 

She rolls one up, lays me down,and keeps me under observation. 

My baby, my baby can do it all. 



She lives on the Nevada side of the line. 

While I stay inches away from doing hard time. 

She lays me down, and calms my mind.
Assures me that I never need to show her a sign

My baby can do it all, deals me aces, and tends the bar. 

Drives me home when I've had too much conversation. 

She rolls one up, lays me down, ad keeps me under observation.
My baby, my baby can do it all.

My baby can do it all, deals me aces, and tends the bar. 

Drives me home when I've had too much conversation. 

She rolls one up, lays me down, ad keeps me under observation.
My baby, my baby can do it all.

My baby, my baby can do it all.
My baby, my baby can do it all. 
My baby, my baby can do it all. 
My baby, my baby can do it all.
Track Name: Small Cuts
He lays in his bed
The voices in his head 

Drives him to sleep

We find him there 



Words like what if

And what could be

Shouldn't stand a chance

But linger on 


Most times what you want

Ain't the things you need

Sometimes it's the smallest cuts
That bleed

Plans that we've laid
Empty promises we made
Like sins of our fathers

Some won't wash away

She lays on a bathroom floor
Empty bottle by the door. 

The ceiling lingers close by,
Porcelain she knows well. 



Words like pins 

The brick wall she's akin 

Can't break the gambler

He shows not a tell 


Most times what you want

Ain't the things you need

Sometimes it's the smallest cuts
That bleed

Plans that we've laid
Empty promises we made
Like sins of our fathers,

Some won't wash away
Track Name: Running With Scissors
Find yourself a mission walking backwards up a one way road
Trying to keep my head all the lies I told
Tell me famous broke we walking when we should run
Undress the table sink the dish under the gun

Drop me quick in your bag of tricks
I'll put you on my list of things to fix

Tell me what’s a man without his thumbs or his lungs 
Miss her last letter your bound to get hung
She runs with scissors holstered softly to her hip
Cuts your introduction builds her paper ships

Drop me quick in your bag of tricks
I'll put you on my list of things to fix

Draw your lucky first might be your last smoke
Bury yourself in raindrops inhibitions soak
She ain't had enough until there’s nothing left
Just an old ashtray and your last cigarette

Drop me quick in your bag of tricks
I'll put you on my list of things to fix

Drop me quick in your bag of tricks
I'll put you on my list of things to fix

Drop me quick in your bag of tricks
I'll put you on my list of things to fix
I'll put you on my list of things to fix
I'll put you on my list of things to fix
Track Name: Saint Peter
She talks to me when I'm sleeping
When I wake she tells me I don't listen

Argues with me when I've been drinking
Tells me its the point I'm missing. 


She hears me when I mumble
Deaf when I get mad
Laughs at me when I tumble
Smiles at me when I'm sad. 
Chorus

St. Peter won't you let me in
No matter what I can't win

Bound to break when I should bend
Wherever she is send me to the other end

She smells me when I'm clean
Tells me I'm a mess

Damn you look good in those jeans
Seconds later she's in a dress 



She sees me in her dream
Yells at me for not waving
Life is perfect it would seem
We wonder sometimes if I'm worth saving

St. Peter won't you let me in
No matter what I can't win
Bound to break when I should bend
Wherever she is send me to the other end

St. Peter won't you let me in
No matter what I can't win
Bound to break when I should bend
Wherever she is send me to the other end
Track Name: Alibi
Why does it seem like you got nothing to say
Until I'm walking out your door
Truth is I can't be real with you
Cause rewind is such a bore

But I try and I'll try
Lord I try you know I try
I can't be
Your alibi 

Why does it feel like I'm a chip on your shoulder 
Fighting like you got something to prove
Truth is I know I'm getting older
But baby I got to move

But I try and I'll try
Lord I try you know I try
I can't be
Your alibi 

How can you be mad at me now
When I'm the one who's sitting in the cold
Truth is you get locked up again 
Don't call me baby I ain't home

But I try and I'll try
Lord I try you know I try
I can't be
Your alibi 

But I try and I'll try
Lord I try you know I try
I can't be
Your alibi 
Track Name: Ataloosa
West of Ataloosa is where I think I lost my mind
Trying to outrun the mess I left behind
Trouble catchs every man
Who builds his house upon the sand

These people are not actors the world no stage
Break yourself out of that cage
Living high and Laying low
Don't you think it's time you let it go

That moat you built inside your head 
dug with regret and things left unsaid
No boat was built to cross that sea
Full of self doubt and mediocrity

These people are not actors the world no stage
Break yourself out of that cage
Living high and laying low
Don't you think it's time you let it go

Found my will up in the hills 
Working odd jobs just to pay my bills
Learned to live the simple way
Easy to be thankful for today

These people are not actors the world no stage
Break yourself out of that cage
Living high and Laying low
Don't you think it's time you let it go

Don't you think it's time you let it go
Don't you think it's time you let it go
Don't you think it's time you let it go
