Track Name: August 18th, 1977
Landed on my feet after I had seen the ghost dancing on the hill behind my home.
I had heard a voice a half hour ago, I was in the dark and it was close.
I recognized the pitch and it said these words to me "Boy you better get and go away. This town is growing old but the Forest's evergreen, I don't want to watch you turn to grey."

All my time has been taken up by winter. I lost track of all the things I had to do today. The lights go out and I see him by my window and I watch him disappear.
Track Name: City Of Lost Cities
Days go by, you're always there.
Outside my door keeping me scared.
Swallowed the key, weak at my knees.
Hoping you'll breath, breath your last air.

In my sleep there are places I won't go.
Move along, here too long, all these houses are abandoned.
Heat radiates to destroy or to create.
Feelings grow, night time snow, things I took for granted.

You saw the light buried in sand.
Opened your eyes, died in our hands.
We both tried, beautiful life.
Just to become lost in our minds.

In my sleep there are places I won't go.
Move along, here too long, all these houses are abandoned.
Heat radiates to destroy or to create.
Feelings grow, night time snow, things I took for granted.
Track Name: Reno
I'm out on the edge of the road to Nevada.
The home of the city where a man can be free.
It may not be emerald, the roads they aren't yellow.
But the Wizard of Oz is there down on his knees.
I gave out my heart to a woman who loved me but one day she left me and it hit me so hard.
I was crazy with love, my brain is still scrambled, but there's a place I can play with a full deck of cards.

Reno, the land of glory.
The water is filthy and grey.
Reno, the land that I love, for the rest of my life I will stay.

Green is the valley that's watched by his shepherd.
You wouldn't believe all the tricks he can pull.
But I'll play him once more because it makes me forget, and I'll bury the hole in my heart 'till it's full.

Reno, Reno. I'm glad that it happened this way.
Reno, the land that I love. For the rest of my life I will stay.
Track Name: Alligator Whiskey
Sweating like a devil but I know I'm getting strong.
Pappy's little children playing out in the lawn.
Close down the shed before the day turns to dawn, waiting for the Family to appear.

Digging through the basement for a batch of peach wine.
Already drank one so it made it hard to find.
Everyone arrived around half past nine, guess I got to meet them when they're here.

Alligator Whisky with my high heels on.
Dancing round the fire with my good old Uncle Tom.
Ate a lot of pie so now we all can get along, all I made of food has disappeared.

Oh Cousin, always want to tell em, everybody's high and everybody's welcome. Ooh child, things are getting wild, jumping round the whole night through.

Fires growing bigger and it's flying in the sky.
Baby's in the tree and it's climbing way too high.
Finally got her down after thirty hundred tries, oh so many things that she could see.

Gotta move the table cuz I'm a big man.
Supper's almost ready and it's steaming in the pan.
Living on the lizards shooting everything we can, sure tastes fine to me.

Things are getting pretty hazy round that time.
Trying to remember something scribbled in my mind.
Homemade drugs will make you feel so fine, take me where I always want to be.

Oh brother, we all want to love her, devil in one eye jesus in the other.
Oh momma, drinking cuz we aughta no one needs to tell us it's a crime.
Oh baby, my god can't save me, did some bad things and I doubt that he can forgave me.
Ooh lordy, I'll tell you a story, gives me the willies every time.

While homeward I scoot,
Came the sheriff's in pursuit,
Riding close from the rear;

The red lights flashed on,
The fun was gone,
But still, I had nothing to fear;

The joy it had brought,
Was lost once I'm caught,
And the laughter it vanished away;

The few people knew,
About the police tires I blew,
I've only been caught just this day;

If it happens again.
I'll give them a grin,
But I've retired these days from my crime;

The memory I bare,
The laughter, the dare;
The story turned now into rhyme.
Track Name: Old Idea
Gratitude and grievances constantly hang over my head.

Isolated walks in the dark won't erase how you were the star.

I'd thought you'd forgot about me.

Honestly I'd forget about me.

Something on my mind each time you talk to me. Aimed at myself, it's over me. Please don't cross my mind. Things that shouldn't care. It's too simple not to play fair.

Spinning orbs on a vacant shore.
Spinning orbs on a vacant shore.
Spinning orbs on a vacant shore.
Spinning orbs on a vacant shore.
Track Name: Magic Bible
Open that magic bible, together we can cast a spell.
This one sends you to heaven and that one sends you to hell.

Board that holy spaceship. Ride through the clouds and the stars. As soon as you smell that barbecued meat you'll know right where you are. Find the nearest coal mine. Dig until it makes you sick. When the smell of meat is your own skin, you'll know what place you're in.

Open that magic bible, together we can cast a spell.
This one sends you to heaven and that one sends you to hell.

Dinner with the Devil. I want to be Jesus' friend. With all this spiritual power, the fun will never end. So we climbed into the magic tree house, opened that magic book. We were sucked into the eye of a hurricane, while the earth shook.

Open that magic bible, together we can cast a spell.
This one sends you to heaven and that one sends you to hell.

With the power of my gods and my devils, there's a lot we can do and say. We can answer the prayers of my family and ruin my enemy's day.
Track Name: The Last of the Bear Army Dies Valiantly Atop Purple Hill
Roaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar
RRRRAAAAAAAAWWWWWWRR
GROWWWWWWWWWWL
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Track Name: The Answer
Nothing was over when all's said and done.
The lies that they feed you won't fool anyone.
But the lion is roaring so the show's just begun, Dimming your features and keeping you young.

I looked at the picture that's framed on your wall.
The people inside it they look very small.
And no one is laughing until they get tall, over and over till they've seen it all.

Einstein is proving things after the fact.
Jesus is losing but it's not too bad.
They both have their shadows, both have their past.
Both have their answers but something falls flat.

Although it was April it felt more like May.
As the sun set, I saw a blue jay.
Write down your answer and throw it away, because nothing else matters that's after today.
