A rainy Sunday, makes for loud guitar.

I was gonna write a protest song, but there was already one written

A red Les Paul, and couple of beers, and I was freaking I was ready to go.

One-Eyed Jacks

One-eyed Jacks were in the middle
of a ruthless confrontation between the Lords of Occupation
And the Princes of the One who rules them all.

I had grown tired of the battle and tired of the saddle
And tired of this lonely trail that may never lead back home.

Recorded sometime in 2006

Out here in the fields
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don't need to fight
To prove I'm right
I don't need to be forgiven

Don't cry
Don't raise your eye
It's only teenage wasteland

Sally ,take my hand
Travel south crossland
Put out the fire
Don't look past my shoulder
The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let's get together
Before we get much older

Teenage wasteland
It's only teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland
Oh, oh
Teenage wasteland
They're all wasted!

Evan Loudrock was a dangerous man.
But he was there to the very end
When I looked up to my right
There was Evan Loudrock about to start a fight
Ripped off his shirt and said "Bring it on!!!  If you want it, you can have it all"

Bring it on if you want it
Bring it on, if you want it, you can have it all.

My car's on the back of a tow truck
And my tickets are in the glove box
I will put it into reverse trying to rip this car off it's frame.
 

Why don't we talk about that?

Why don't we talk about that

I'm tired of bullshit, I'm tired of liars

I'm tired of the evil to which you aspire

You fucked us over, you took our money.

You feel up Granny and you think its pretty funny

A conversation?

Why don't we talk about that?

Lookin' at the Devil, grinnin' at his gun.

Fingers started pointin', I begin to run.

Bullets start a chasin', I begin to stop

We begin to wrassle, I was on the top...

I got no time to throw away
I don't have anytime to play

I know. It's a shame.
But I don't have time to throw away.

Us and Them

And after all we're only ordinary men.

"Forward", he cried, from the rear, and the front ranks died.

And the General sat and lines on the map moved from side to side

 

Black and Blue, and who knows which is which and who is who.

With. Without.  And who'll deny its what the fighting's all about

"Haven't you heard?? Its a battle of words!", the poster-bearer cried.

"Listen, Son", said the man with the gun, "There's room for you inside"

Wow, I can't believe so much time went by between songs.

This song was recorded on Fostex 4-track on the back porch - an idea for a song.

So I live my life this way
Beholden to the man
Who reached down to pick me up
to lend a helping hand

If it was left up to me
There's no telling what I'd do
I'm sure the ending wouldn't be good
For either me or you

Mark 5:10

   "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."

These days its so hard to know what to do
My Demons are waiting for their chance to break through
I've mended my fences, my heart is always true

Matthew 4:8

 8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.

Matthew 4:11

 11Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

So there's this son
   he has taken on a voyage
Saddish son who get me high and wants the emerald right behind him moted in alcohol

Boy, there's this distant feeling that's ever been, and I meant that from the top
War from this silver ladel I will not.
And I've 
    I've pledged to that as the sun is one within reach           
    Age the one, even though that I was sleeping and I knew that I was wrong in the middle of it all    
Boy, this somehow works to petition the right to snake teeth       
      when I became the rot that first churched me burmese    
Boy, this rose bush would tickle the insides of a martian      
      for the integrity I was blessed, my first lesson. 
Boy this stunt will pay out almost before you ever have hitten the hop     
     word is this wisdom won't be mocked.

Just me my guitar
and some cold budweiser
and the rain comes down
but it couldn't be nicer

Can these power chords save my soul?

Can these power chords save my...No they can't
So I have to rant

Just me and my guitar
and some cold budweiser
and the rain comes down

I was Krispy-Kremed in the morning

I spent all day on a sugar high

Now I'm staring out the window

Drinkin' beer and eatin' muscadines...

Midnight and my trolls are at the door
The Midnight Trolls I've battled with before
Remaining Disinclined
To follow footsteps of the blind
Well it takes a twisted mind

Midnight and my trolls are at the door
The same old trolls I've battled with before
Waiting for some time
Now trolls are all I find...

He reached across the table
And pulled a cigarette out of a crumpled pack
it was the last one

He stared out of the window
and wondered when the rain was gonna end
He was tired. Of it.

Then he reads the papers
and has his cup of tea
he studies his religion
rubs the belly of his dog B.
in everything he's grateful
but this feeling won't let him be.

My heart will never be as strong, my love
My eyes will never see the sun the same
The time is never gonna come, my friend
The feelings that we shared have reached the end

My heart will never be as strong, my love
My eyes will never see the sun the same
The time is never gonna come, my friend
The feelings that we shared have reached the end

I'm just a Christmas tree in January
I'm a tattered flag flappin' on the pole
I'm a steel vault of useless information
A safe deposit box full of promissory notes
