Track Name: Desert Heroine
Here I am
I moved out and I moved in
No more needing to pretend
Change don’t have to be so grim
Sometimes it’s better to know
Instead of never look within
So here I am

And I know I can
Try to rid myself of guilt
Live in this fortress that I built
Let the hours wilt
Try to leave this desert
Where I let whatever do me in
I know I can

And I hope you know
This is one of many lives
I’m so grateful for your time
That the heart you chose was mine
Even for for a moment
You let it go, for you don’t own it
I know why
I hope you know

So what is love
But a dangerous escape
You rush and then you wait
And all those beautiful mistakes
Haunted you awake
And it’s all too much to take
And you feel
That it’s too late

To go back to where you started
Not alone or broken hearted
You are safe
So what is love?
But a place where we both met
And we’re better for it

It’s all right
I don’t wanna be alone
Track Name: Radio on Low
I got the radio on low
I got no other place to go
The way that we grow
Depends on what we’ve been fed
And I need you to know
You give me good lovin’

I like to tell you that I love you
And I like to hear you say you love me, too
I like the way that it feels
Just knowing that you are near
‘Cause it feels good, your lovin’

I won’t ask you to stop what you’re doing
I will not put up a fight, no
I’m just asking you, baby, please come home
To me ASAP

Because I need
I need your lovin’
And I want it

When will the time be right?
I just can’t wait another night
I try to be patient. I try to be kind
But baby, I want you
I want you tonight
Track Name: Long Cold Nights
It's a good life
We live it so well
And, it's a hard life
Man, it's been giving me hell

(Chorus)
These long days
And long, cold nights
I don't wanna fuss, dear
No, I don't wanna fight
Before we go down
Easy

No, I don't wanna be alone
(I don't wanna be alone)
When the end comes

(Chorus)

It's a good life
(It's a good life)
We live it so well
(Live it so well)
And sometimes, this whole life
Man, it's been giving me hell.

(Chorus)

I don't wanna be alone
When the end comes
Come on, baby
Let the good times roll
Just give it to me easy
Track Name: Only Darkness
What does my life look like without you
Only darkness
No light

I really can’t explain it
What my heart goes through
The pain, It’s just too much
And will you try to change it
I fell apart from you
The pain, it’s just too much

So I hold out my hand
And wait for you
To open up your heart and realize
I still love you

And I’ve never been the kind of man to admit it
But I was blind, love
And now I’m lost
And if ever you can find the time to forgive it
I know I can’t buy love
But I know what it’s cost

So I hold out my hand
And wait for you
To open up your heart and realize
I still love you

What does my life look like without you
Only darkness
No light
Track Name: Shakedown
I moved down south from the cold and snow
Now I can’t recall the last time that I seen home
I caught an E-150 down to Caroline
Then I moved to the hills on the company’s dime
And the company’s fine

I was riding high when my high got spoiled
Only half a mile from Virginia soil
Then I got locked up and it broke me down
Swore to the judge he won’t see me around.

And it breaks me down (You can break my heart)
Being out here on my own. (Don’t shake me down)
Like a fire whose ashes burn to roam
It’s hard to be somewhere out here all alone
When the ones you love still wait for you back home

Then Manny picked up and moved out to LA
He’s like the breeze and he keep it that way
He’s got hand like a bull whip, voice like a bird
Sing so sweet you ain’t never heard.

You can break my heart
Don’t shake me down
Track Name: Hannah
How long must I wait?
Your love could keep me from the grave
When midnight come round
I wanna feel you from inside out
Yeah, we'll come together in the night

How long must I wait?
I need your touch without delay
Evening Sun gone down
Lay our bodies to the ground
And we'll come together in the night
Was it me?
Was it you?

There's no more ghosts in this house
Your love could keep them all locked out
The dogs are all sleeping, now
They're chasing trouble from out this town
Everything comes together in the night

How long must I wait?
Your love could keep me from the grave
When midnight come round
I wanna feel you from inside out
Yeah, we'll come together in the night
Track Name: Same Thing
Am I alone here?
Can’t seem to find nobody home, dear
The last time that I checked, the math was correct
The numbers were clear

Am I in some kind of a zone here?
One where the sky is falling like tears
Can’t seem to reason hope
It’s like the telescope
It’s narrowed to what’s very near

(Chorus)
We all want the same thing (Same thing)

Are we divided by the man, here?
I ain’t decided but to be clear
There’s nothing that we can see
As simple as it may seem
They’d like us to believe

They’re working hard for you and me, dear
(They’re working hard)
They’re slaving all day long to sling fear
(Slaving all day long)
Want to be inside your head
Want to be inside your bed
They want to pull the strings, dear

(Chorus)

I want to see the eye of the storm
I want to keep my family warm
We all want the same thing
Track Name: Ode to Patton Quinn
Just keep an open mind
Don't think once. Don't think twice
Try not thinking at all
You just might find
You got everything you need so easy
You should be what you want
Easy, now

I'm throwing all my trash
Out on the curb
I finally earned the phrase to say
That I've lived and learned
I'm gonna leave it all behind
So easy, now

(Chorus)
Don't let it ever hurt so bad
(Let it ever hurt so bad)
Let it ever hurt so bad
(Hurt so bad)
It's all right

I'm cleaning up the mess
That I made. It's hard to say
If the love I had will come back some day, but
I"m gonna give it all I have
So easy
We should be what we want
Easy, now

(Chorus)
Track Name: Take a Trip
(Chorus)
Take the time to notice
Everything around us
Is beautiful
It makes you sing
How do we
Forget so easily
Everything that we see
Is everything

Take a trip with me
I'll try and help make you believe
In peace and love and harmony
That lives inside both you and me
Carefully mindless
Prepare to unwind less
Choose a door unused before
Crawl the field of dirt below
Forget about the hurt we know

Come disappear with me
Dreams as opportunity
Become one with anything
Past and future presently
Fearfully surefire
Unclear, but it's worthwhile
Even in dreams
Life it seems
Is real to the touch, I know
So forget about the hurt you know

(Chorus)

Lo Mein on a totem pole (Boojie magic)
Track Name: Sleeping
(Chorus)
I have a hard time sleeping
I wake up early in the morning
Go to work until the evening
And I do it all again
Oh, babe, I need some rest

Something ain't right with the way the world is spinning
Everybody trying to make a dime, trying to make a living
I turn on the TV. Everybody's screaming freedom
It's hard to believe em'

Don't mistake me, baby, for somebody living lazy
No, I just need some rest

(Chorus)

They say that if you make it to the top, brother
Don't bother looking down
But, it's all I can do to be true
Trying not to drown
I turn on the radio. I turn off the radio.
I'm drowning and I've had it
With everything, I've had it

But, don't mistake me baby for somebody living lazy
No, I just need some rest
Is there something you suggest?
Some pills or a test
I can take

Something ain't right with the way the world is spinning
Track Name: I Saw the City
I saw the city and the lights
I saw the city and you opened up
I brought the dragon home

Everybody trying to be your baby
What you gonna do when you tell em' maybe?
Somebody knocking on all the doors
I got nothing to give
Just some more

I saw the city and you opened up
I saw the city and the lights
I saw the city and you opened up
I brought the dragon home
I brought the dragon and you lied
Track Name: Don't Belong
Don't wanna get up
Get the feeling it's useless
So leave me alone
So I can get used to it
You strung me out on a line
Then you left me there to dry
And I don't even know why

I'm giving in
I can't find the guts to get even
Keep my hands up to fend off the beating
When half of the time
You're feeding me a lie
And I don't even know why

(Chorus)
So, don't be long, don't be long, love
No, we didn't belong. It wouldn't be long for love

The road has long been overgrown
I don't know if I could feel you anymore
We're all getting older
I know we're gonna be all right
Now, I know that we were all I know

(Chorus)
