(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

Outskirts 04:41
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

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

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

Gravy Chain 03:16
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

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
9.
Earache 06:06
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!

Deliverance 08:52
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
