Track Name: Dig You Up
Outside your window
Gazing hard on this crazy night
Your head on your pillow
Wide awake you're mine

I'm a bit neurotic
You're a bit of a hypocrite
You laugh, I cry
Girl together we fit

Chorus:
Baby, I dig you
I dig you up
Baby, I dig you
I dig you up

I'm a bit eclectic
You're a bit of a porno star
This touch electric
Girl together we are

Chorus:
Baby, I dig you
I dig you up
Baby, I dig you
I dig you up
Track Name: Leave You (Dickhead)
I am a basket case all rotted out and blind
I’ll take your will to live—and burn you up inside
I’m a devil, I’m a monster, I’m a fiend
I will suffocate, and let you down—you’ll see

Leave you alone, leave you behind, leave you to rot you’re drowning
Leave you alone, leave you behind, leave you to rot you’re drowning

I see you shiver when you’re standing next to me
Move in closer—if you care I’ll set you free
I’m your savior, I’m your healer, I’m your friend
I'll make you feel good—then I'll fuck you in the end

Leave you alone, leave you behind, leave you to rot you’re drowning
Leave you alone, leave you behind, leave you to rot you’re drowning

Solo

I am a basket case all rotted out and blind
I’ll take your will to live—and burn you up inside
I’m a devil, I’m a monster, I’m a fiend
I will suffocate, and let you down—you’ll see

Leave you alone, leave you behind, leave you to rot you’re drowning
Leave you alone, leave you behind, leave you to rot you’re drowning
Track Name: Hitchhiking is Overrated
Long hair blowin’ madly—August wind
Moving freely to the music in her head
Caught a ride with her thumb in the moonlight
Hitched a ride the night, the night she died

It’s your life
It’s your blood
It’s your life
It’s your blood

She’s the girl of my dreams—of my life
Saw curves as I was driving by
I will take you anywhere that you need
If you’re willing—willing, then step inside

It’s your life
It’s your blood
It’s your life
It’s your blood

-Solo-

Flashing lights down the road—about mile
Serial murder happened on the 105
Body naked—laying on the blacktop
Bound and torn— the night she died

It’s your life
It’s your blood
It’s your life
It’s your lie
Track Name: Sunshine Baby
Just like a movie I felt it there
Out of the shadows a godless fair
Heart was so empty beat got crossed
Took what was needed
Took what was needed
Evil things on the dance floor
Bad things
Bad things
I lost my sunshine baby I lost my sunshine
Just like the night faded away
Soul was empty and couldn't stay
Looking back never learned
It was leav'n
It was leaving
Track Name: Cold Black Heart
"put a little soil on it..."

Well it all started with a cool seduction
Long legs and my hearts abduction
Powers of the snake leave me be
She got her hooks ya right into me

Like a nail in the head, it only hurt for a minute
Tried to get away, and I was too deep in it
Passion is fire, and love is decay
when it comes morning, gona come back again

It was trouble from the very start
never gona get your lovin child

and your cold black heart
Heart
Heart
Heart

I went to the bottle to drown in my sorrow
Straight shot of bourbon showed me a path I could follow
Mind is blank ya soul is pain
When in the morning I see you again...ya I see you again

Well gun in hand I was seeking redemption
Begged forgiveness, and the man didn't have none
In a cell I lye and I wait for my day
She come tomorrow and I do it again

It was murder from the very start
never gona get that lovin child

and your cold black heart
Heart
Heart
Heart
with your cold black heart
Track Name: Ghost Radio
This night is over—
I got nothing left to give
My head is screamin' I'm a mess
This bond between us—
It finally comes undone
The voices scream inside my head

Down this crooked road we roll—We roll
Slide on over take the wheel

You say you know me—
But your touch I don't recall
My name has never left your lips
I say I need you—
But I'm asking you to go
I see freedom round the bend

Down this crooked road we roll—We roll
Slide on over take the wheel
There ain't no heroes in this song—These songs
In my ghost radio

-Solo-

My head is heavy
And my heart is overworked
These color patterns black me out
The chords are changing
But the song remains the same
The lights go down and then we shout

Down this crooked road we roll— We roll
Slide on over take the wheel
There ain't no heroes in this song— These songs
In my ghost radio
Track Name: Rollin'
Blowin’ up like the Fourth of July
Blasting Kiss Dressed to Kill
Took a ride on your motorbike
‘cause your mind wouldn’t sit still
You’re rollin’—chasing demons
Dying for the cause
We all missed you—that’s your loss

You used to be the talk of the scene
Ain’t seen your face round in a while
The papers said you hit the curve too hard
Well at least you died in style
Got your drink on—got loaded
Higher than the stars
Lost potential is what you are

You’re rollin’—rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Track Name: Panic Attack
Got the call she been your back, she just never quits
She told you off, your no damn good,she going to pawn your shit
Your heart is black and your anger hot, she going to taste your fist
You grabbed a bro and a baseball bat, you just couldn't resist

Panic attack, yeah your world is on fire
Panic attack, yeah never get better
Panic attack, yeah nothing else matters
Panic attack

Broken glass dial 911, you were out of control
Don't wait around for police car, but you got nowhere to go
A blacktop call going to hope a bus, get your ass out of town
They picked you up around 3am without a sound

Panic attack, yeah your world is on fire
Panic attack, yeah never get better
Panic attack, yeah nothing else matters
Panic attack

Panic attack, yeah your world is on fire
Panic attack, it will never get better
Panic attack, yeah nothing else matters
Panic attack
Track Name: Swamp Song
She don't like other women
She like raising hell
Ain't no love for the taking
Keep your hands to yourself

There ain't no easy way I know, I know
Hard's the only way we roll

She don't come in the back booth
Unless they show their hard
Lose herself in the six string
She ain't nobodies heart

There ain't no easy way I know, I know
Hard's the only way we roll

She gets me off in the back seat
But she won't clean the mess
I don't care cause I need her
Like I need nobody else

There ain't no easy way I know, I know
Hard's the only way we roll

The bodies flowing freely
Let's not come too fast
Left my heart in the parking lot
Burned it into ash

There ain't no easy way I know, I know
Hard's the only way we roll
Track Name: Martyrs and Rockstars
Got a pocket full of patience
and a lifetime full of death
Got a bucket full of sorry
and it ain't got better yet
Got a high that's gona come down
and a heart full of pain
Got a jolly old shotgun
and a bullet with my name

Yeah bullet with my name
Yeah bullet with my name
Yeah bullet with my name
Yeah bullet with my name

Gona find myself a woman
who will never let me down
Gona find myself a woman
who won't put me in the ground
Gona find myself a woman
who will dry me out sometime
Lord I got to take myself a minute
help my head unwind

Yeah help my head unwind
Yeah help my head unwind
Yeah help my head unwind
Yeah help my head unwind

I got a lot of bad habits, I won't quit
I'm gona think of you last, cause I'm a son of a bitch
If you tell me you love me, baby I'll be gone
Well you say I'm to old to be a rock'n star
Well I ain't goin back cause I've come this far
and a bottle of tequila help me feel just fine

Yeah I'm fine
Yeah I'm fine
Yeah Yeah Yeah I'm fine
Yeah I'm fine fine fine fine
