Track Name: Rocks In Your Head
Let me make no bones about it
You ain't jumpin' mine for free
You play dirty fine
With your dirty little mind
But I got bigger plans for me
I got bigger plans for me

Can't you hear your mama callin'
I can hear your daddy too

I know they disapprove of me
I disapprove of you
Me I disapprove of you

yeah, yeah, yeah

I ain't gonna eat the lines you fed me
Don't believe a word that you said
'Cuz there's rocks in your head
Alright

C'mon tell me pretty baby
Tell me what you gonna do
You don't really love me
But you can't get enough of me
I've had enough of you
You don't really love me baby
Really love me
But I have had enough of you

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah

I ain't gonna eat the lies you fed me
Don't believe a word that you said
That you said, that you said
Oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah

A single word that you said
'Cuz there's rocks in your head
In your head
Track Name: Honesty
Alright
Tell me what I said
You better watch out
Your words are getting in your way
It's not right
Every little thing you say

C'mon baby
Get a grip
You better tighten up
Your flappy little lip
Don't go down
Where the liars live

Alright
Listen what I said
I been watching
Every little move you make
It don't jibe
'Cuz every other word is fake

It's all lies
The whole thing
It's all jive
And I'm tired of listening
You wanna fly
But you never paid for your wings

Oh, give me a little
Honesty
All I want is
Honesty
All I need is
Honesty
Gotta gimme
Honesty

Alright
Tell me what I say
Tell the truth now
Or put your
Bloody tongue away
'Cuz no lie
Ever really goes away

It's gonna grow
It's gonna spread
It's gonna follow you
Until you're dead, baby
They'll pull the sheet
Right over
Your lying little head

Better give it to me
Honesty
All I want is
Honesty
All I need is
Honesty
Gotta gotta gimme
Honesty
Gotta gotta gimme
Honesty
I want it
Honesty
I need it
Honesty
Ow, gotta have it

Track Name: You Still Love Me
(I)
Yeah I come running
(Down)
Down the mountain of love
(I)
You know I'd been up there
(So long)
But I couldn't get enough

I've been look, looking
Checking my load, wondering how I pull it
I've been talk, talking
Talking out loud, talking to myself alone

(You)
Are you still waiting
(For)
For me to come home
(I)
You know I can't stand it
(Knowing)
You're there all alone

I've been run, running
Running from love, thinking I'd had enough
Ain't no fun, fun in
Laughing alone and living on my own
Am I done, done with
Checking it out, baby I got my doubts
Got no love, love left
Where can I go, I know I've wasted it

I know, I know I blew it, baby
Show me where to go now
I gotta find us something better
Will you wait there forever?

Who can understand the heart of a man
When his love grows cold then his heart turns old
Full of pride, love denied 'till he dies inside

(Love)
Love, love, love come running
(Home)
Back home to my heart
(Stay)
Won't you stay right there inside me
(Never, never)
Never to depart

(Ain't done nothing)
Nothing at all, building a wall inside me
(You did something)
Good to me
And now I can't be free
(Are you coming)
Coming around
To the new sound of my old footsteps
(You still love, love me)
You still love me

I know, I know I love you baby
And I know where to go now
I think I found us something better
We can be there forever
Track Name: Outskirts
I'm gonna move
Way out on the outskirts of town
Everybody dogged me
Yeah they dogged me right on down
They hit me once
They hit me twice
They hit me three times people
But that's alright, alright

'Cuz I'm gonna move
Yeah, I'm gonna move
Way outside of town

Yeah, they stick it to me
Right to my face
They put me right down to the ground
Put me right in my place
They hit me once
They hit me twice
They hit me three times people
But that's alright, alright

'Cuz I'm gonna move
Yeah, I'm gonna move
Way out on the outskirts, outskirts
Way outside of my town

I'm tellin' you people
I'll tell you right now
You better watch your step
Get yourself
Right out of this big bad town, yeah
They'll hit you once
They'll hit you twice
They'll hit you three times people
Three times people
But that's alright, alright

'Cuz I'm gonna move
Yeah I'm gonna move, well
Yeah I'm gonna move
I'm gonna, gonna move, well
Way out on the outskirts, outskirts
Way out on the outskirts
Outside of my town
Track Name: Flowers In The Sand
You make a lot of money
She makes a lot of time
Counts it out and hands it over to you
Never asking nothing in return
'Cuz she trusts you
Believes in you too

You go around in circles
She goes home alone
You could be there with her
But she's still on her own
She's not looking for miracles
She's just looking for love
All she wants is you, because that's enough

She makes it all so easy
You make it all so hard
You've give her dirt
And tie her to the earth
She plants another flower in the sand

You got all the best excuses in the world
But they're not reasons
They don't even rhyme
She's a good woman
But you treat her like a bad little girl
She's a loser
In your little game
The victim of your big crime
She's always trying to work it out
You're only trying just to fit her in
To your self-serving plans and schemes
She thinks you're worth it
So she hangs around
And hangs another day on shattered hopes
And battered little dreams

You trample down your dirt
And harvest weeds
Her love grows
And she waters it so carefully
You scatter all her seedlings
With one wave of your hand
And she plants another flower in the sand
Track Name: Don't Leave Me Long
You made a promise to me long ago
Saying that you would never leave
But this I know
You were the one
Not me who chose to blow
When I loved you so

Raise high the roofbeam
I don't care, make room
For more lonliness here

It doesn't matter what you do or say
I'm gonna love you, love you anyway

Your love is my umbrella
Let go in the wind
Settle down upon me once again
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely

You'd been sending out the word to go
I needed love
I didn't want to know
I pretended not to hear and
So I stayed too long with you

I stayed too long with you
It's true

You blew into me
Like the wind and then you
Blew right out again

Your love is like the wind
Blowing through the trees
Stir it up
Blow it down on me
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely

My love is as strong
As the day is long
Put an end to my pretty little song
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely

You never wanted to tell me
What you were feeling
Now I see
You've got me reeling from it
I really needed your love
My wounds
Have been bleeding enough
Come patch me up, patch me up

It was the seventh hour
The seventh day
The seventh
Of the pretty month of May
You said goodbye
Went away
And I'm not the same
Not the same
Not the same

I don't want to live
With this pain everyday
I don't want to stay here
In a bad way
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely
You take away every fear
That I hold so dear
You give away so much love
I just gotta be near
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me long
Track Name: Gravy Chain
Well I broke my back
In a chicken shack
I made a stack
Way past the black
I got the knack
For attracting slack
You jumped my tracks
And stole a snack

Pulled my gravy chain
Rode my gravy train
Was saving for a rainy day
'Till you pulled my gravy chain

Oh well, well, well
I chomped the bit
And bit by bit, bit by bit
Took my licks, clenched the mitt
Clenched the mitt, future shock, retrofit
With velvet gloves and spit
You spied the split
In my armament
Oh, you came, went, spent

Pulled my gravy chain
Rode my gravy train
You stole my gravy and everything
Pulled my gravy chain

I broke my back
To make that stack
Oh, so jump back jack, jump back jack
Alligator, see you later
Don't come back

Pulled my gravy chain
Rode my gravy train
You stole my gravy and everything
Pulled my gravy chain
Pull my groovy chain
Ride my gravy train
You stole my gravy and everything
Pulled my gravy chain
Track Name: Five In The Nave
I've got a million of 'em
I've got a million of 'em
Five in the nave
Five in the nave
Slowly I turn
Step by step
Inch by inch

I grabbed one of 'em
I knocked another one down
And another one came round back of me
I held 'em by the throat
??????????
Pulled 'em on in
Oh five in the nave
Down on the ground there they were

Good night America
And all the ships that sail the sea

I've got a million of 'em
Track Name: Earache
I've got a million dollars worth
Of insurance
Yeah, a million dollars worth
If it all burns down
I can get it all back
All back
Plus a brand new cadillac
That's right
Cadillac
Roll it mama
Roll

I can live careless
I can live careless and reckless
Because I'm so well protected
Why, even the fuzz say
Capitalist pigs like myself
Are a pain
No more heads left to beat in
No one else left to blame
No one else
Left to blame

Fallen world
Fallen mind
Fallen teeth
Fallen blind
To a world just like ours
To a world not as small
As the one we devoured showered with gifts

Covered by a million baby
Covered by a million
Covered by a million baby
Covered by a million
Covered by a million

So what was it worth?
Was I ready for this?
Did I think hell on earth
Earned eternal bliss
When every embrace
Was a Judas kiss?
What does it mean?
If I lived dirty
Why would I want to die clean?

I'm insatiable
I can never be satisfied
Any pleasure that can be amplified
Will soon be nullified
I'm an animal
With a back-breaking tendency
To break my back
So that I don't have to break my back
Like an animal
I'm an angel with a large capacity for beer
(I think C.S. Lewis said that)
Somebody call the theologians
Because I can't get enough
I can't get enough
Please give me more
So I can't get enough
Ouch!
Track Name: Deliverance
You went to my head
All the things that you said
Straight to my head
Like a cannonball
I fled

The more that I heard
The more that I knew I'd been had
Should have got out the lead
I ran full speed ahead
Full of dread

Went to my head

You went to my head
Message was danger
Color was red
I dreamt I was dead
Sat straight up in my bed
My bed

Oh where did I bury my body
So dirty
My soul
So unfed
This went through my head

Straight through my head
Yeah, yeah
The toast was raised
The bullets sprayed
They laid me down
Down among the frowns
Below the ground somewhere
Somewhere

This went through my head
Down the garden path I was led
Got cooked in some oven
Baked me like bread
Where was that masked body
I buried and left it for dead?
The hand crept out the water
Shouted hallelujah, hallelujah
I need deliverance
Deliverance
This went through my head
Why did all this go through my head?

Straight through my head
Like a bullet of lead
The bomb was dropped
The megaton exploded
The fire burned
Consuming all that went before it
The information spread

The bombs they burst
The smoke, the heat
The blood was red

Exhuming every single thing
I did and said
Lord help my head, help my head
