Jackson 03:02
Wake up momma, we got a little, we got a little to do Get the children, they're going to want to hear it too 600 strong to cross the Edmond Pettus bridge We won't stop for no law man until they get it fixed We all dream of being lonely I know it's not an easy thing to do We got to get what is left of yours and mine If not we all lose Calm down momma, we got to find a place to hide the law men came without warning, they came for our lives Calm down momma, honey, now honey don't you cry because there's a man around the corner and it's either you or I We all dream of being lonely I know it's not an easy thing to do We got to get what is left of yours and mine If not we all lose So wake up momma, we got a little, we got a little to do The King has came with his men and they want you To march strong across that Edmond Pettus bridge We won't stop for no law man, until it gets fixed

Miles and miles away the dreams drift away you wont give us a dime much less give us the time excuse my message i feel like we're dying you wont give a damn but we're still trying we're all just ashes of burned out stars and that's what we are we're on the road again bringing in women and men you wont give a damn or much less give us a hand We give you everything money and diamond rings you wont give us a thing you will believe me when I say

You are good for nothing but the goodness in my head You are good for nothing as you lie awake in bed And I'm immune You are good for nothing but the goodness in my head You are good for nothing as I lie awake in bed and I'm amused And the killers always looking for something but I got nothing new You are good for nothing but the goodness in my head You are good for nothing so I stare at you in bed And I'm immune You are good for nothing but the goodness in my head You are good for nothing so I kill you dead instead And I'm amused But the killer always looking for something I got nothing new

Lonely 03:23
She steals the morning From a sunset still on water She brightens the day While clouds precipitate from clutter She’ll light up the night with lighting strikes It’s followed by trails of thunder Unlike the storm, decorated in scorn She’s left with fear of wonder She’s lonely, lonely She lies in the bed While nobody’s there, covered In a sheet that adheres and covers up her tears of suffer Day by day she’ll anticipate You’ll return to her without flowers But with open arms and your James Dean charm and your pedestal for her still towers She’ll walk across land That’s been left by man All of it undiscovered Through all the hills, the creeks, and the fields If you were there left to love her

Lost 03:58
When I wake up, her reminisce beside our bed I get up and try to think of the reasons that she gived For leaving, but the voice inside my head keeps trying to not let me forget that i'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her My heart feels that it’s best Don't want to make up, for the words that I might have said In the courtyard I'm wondering where that she had might of been And when, did this voice inside my head keep trying to not let me forget that i'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her My heart feels that it’s best I’m not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her I'm not giving in I’m feeling like i’m lost without her My heart feels that it’s best

I'm losing now, but I’m ready to win These dark subtle eyes are ready to pen The story, I know, is ready to begin My heart belongs to you I have no reason to lie I got you by my side For no reason at all You have a hold on my heart My deceitful heart is ready to end My honest heart is ready to pen The story, I know, is ready to begin My heart belongs to you

My Darling 03:14
I don't like how I'm living I know that nothing is going to change and I'd give up my last lone dime just for you I saw all the warnings That there would be no today That wouldn't change the fact my dear That I'd stay I know that you were just living for no one but yourself I have a feeling my dear, that's not best Life is short because of dying One ends everyday For this my dear, I won't stay I loved you my darling I guess there's nothing left to say Except, I love her my dear The same way

I'm all out of hope One more bad break Could bring a fall When I'm far from home Don't call me on the phone To tell me you're alone It's easy to deceive It's easy to tease But hard to get release Eyes without a face (Les yeux sans visage) Eyes without a face (Les yeux sans visage) Eyes without a face Got no human grace You're eyes without a face I spend so much time Believing all the lies To keep the dream alive Now it makes me sad It makes me mad at truth For loving what was you Eyes without a face (Les yeux sans visage) Eyes without a face (Les yeux sans visage) Eyes without a face Got no human grace You're eyes without a face (face, face, face) Now I close my eyes And I wonder why I don't despise Now all I can do Love what was once So alive in you But it's gone from your eyes I better realize Eyes without a face (Les yeux sans visage) Eyes without a face (Les yeux sans visage) Eyes without a face Got no human grace You're eyes without a face Such a human waste You're eyes without a face (face, face, face) And now it's getting worse

Fell In Love 02:35
Fell in love with a girl She couldn’t get what she needs She fell in love with a one eyed Joker His eye staring back at me Fell in love with a girl Her faint lit eyes She had a heart that tended to boast The fact that it wasn't alive I fell in love with the girl I love When she stared back at me I fell in love with the girl I love Now she gives her love to me Fell in love with a girl She couldn't get what she wants She was a bitch that tended to itch Her feelings of not being alone Love is such a strange necessity Playing little games with our hearts Hate is just another necessity to get back to our love from the start I fell in love with a girl She didn't have no deceit I fell in love with the girl I love Now she gives her love to me Love is such a strange necessity Playing little games with our hearts Hate is just another necessity to get back to our love from the start

Remember the days when we were just teens We would pack up our bags and go to places unseen Drive 13 hours to see the same downtown looks While drinking beer out of bottles and reading paperback books The young, youth, and innocent is where life unfolds You're always left wondering, but your stories will be told While driving 13 hours to see the same downtown looks Drinking beer out of bottles and reading paperback books It feels like you're listening You ain’t listening to what I would know In case you relate or see where I'm coming from We're living our dreams that aren't dead yet Remember the days when we were just teens Remember the days when we were just teens Remember the days when we were just teens Remember the days when we were just teens

I met your mother when i was 16 with a pocket full of nothing and a car that wasn't clean she showed me things that i had never seen she was always looking at the good looking boys she stand in a corner and use them as toys never did i watch and nor did i avoid She's always looking for friends in high times and every time i think of her you still cross my mind but her loving was nothing that i could enjoy but her loving was nothing that i could enjoy but her loving was nothing that i could enjoy I moved on out at the age of 18 with a pocket full of nothing and nothing but a dream i would wash for a buck and i would fill in all the seems she was always working at that store on the hill worried about nothing but a thing called a bill never did she lie and nor did she steal we were all scared we didn't know where to start we had you when we both were apart with 2 broken families but plenty open hearts son i tell you now that this life is real hard and do what you do but don't ever fall apart live how you live but don't ever stray too far

On a Plain 03:09
I'll start this off Without any words I got so high that I scratched 'til I bled Love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do? The finest day That I ever had Was when I learned To cry on command Love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do? I'm on a plain I can't complain I'm on a plain My mother died Every night It's safe to say Don't quote me on that Love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do? The black sheep got Blackmailed again Forgot to put On the zip code Love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do? I'm on a plain I can't complain I'm on a plain Somewhere I have heard this before In a dream my memory has stored As defense I'm neutered and spayed What the hell am I trying to say? It is now time To make it unclear To write off lines That don't make a sense Love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do? One more special Message to go And then I'm done And I can go home Love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do? I'm on a plain I can't complain I'm on a plain I can't complain I'm on a plain I can't complain I'm on a plain I can't complain I'm on a plain I can't complain

I've been gone for sometime I'm reading books and writing rhymes You don't want what I would have to say You went after what you want You dream of me when he talks You don't want what I would have to say I know that you were right there with me Until you threw it far and now it's all gone away I know that you were right there with me Until you threw it far and now it's all gone away You like spending you're own time With tailored suits while drinking wine There's no reason that I would've stayed Now unhappy with what you got You dream of me when he talks You don't want what I would have to say I know that you were right there with me Until you threw it far and now it's all gone away I know that you were right there with me Until you threw it far and now it's all gone away I've been gone for sometime I'm reading books and writing rhymes You don't want what I would have to say

She used to work in a diner Never saw a woman look finer I used to order just to watch her float across the floor She grew up in a small town Never put her roots down Daddy always kept movin', so she did too Somewhere on a desert highway She rides a Harley-Davidson Her long blonde hair flyin' in the wind She's been runnin' half her life The chrome and steel she rides Collidin' with the very air she breathes The air she breathes. You know it ain't easy You got to hold on She was an unknown legend in her time Now she's dressin' two kids Lookin' for a magic kiss She gets the far-away look in her eyes. Somewhere on a desert highway She rides a Harley-Davidson Her long blonde hair flyin' in the wind She's been runnin' half her life The chrome and steel she rides Collidin' with the very air she breathes The air she breathes

You Are 03:22

You Want It 02:31
She was nothing Just the Devil with the cancer Living off of her knee’s He had nothing But the heart of a sailor Sailing too many seas Now you want it and you got it Judas walks hand and hand with Jesus Giving him all that he needs Judas shakes hands with the Devil Jesus gets nailed to a tree Now you want it and you got it
