Virtue and Vice Lyrics

Think of me
I'll think of you
We better think
This whole thing through
Sometimes I'm so clumsy

You talk to me
I'll talk to you
You cut the fat
And we'll both chew
You know we're both hungry

I feel so alive today
That's all that I wanted to say
I hope that it stays this way
If not I will be okay

Say another prayer
Save another life
Kiss me on my head
And tell me
Everything's alright
'Cause I can say it one
Or I can shout it twice
All there really is
Is virtue and vice
Virtue and vice

Cry to me
I'll cry to you
Sometimes the pain will only do
You know I'm not kidding

You laugh with me
I'll laugh with you
At all the stupid things we do
Tomorrow we'll be happy

Gone Lyrics

Save me, save me baby
From this season's dead air
Take, take, take me baby
Blind naked and scared
So scared
Want you to burn me, burn me baby
Burn me and cover your eyes with my ashes
Why don't you pray for me baby
Sit back and watch my divine spark flash

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Pull, push and pull on me baby
With your fingernails full of fur
I want you to stab me
Do it, do it, 'cause you know it don't hurt

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Jinx me, jinx me baby
Beautiful like a fool
C'mon and remove me
Dilated and burned

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Cypress Tree Lyrics

So you found yourself a killer
The one with blue eyes
I guess the blood stain on the blanket don't lie
I guess I saw it coming
Like a boy I just kept running
But through this crime I have survived

Chorus:
They're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
The crowd gonna cheer when the see you swing
Yeah, they're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
Tell me now do you believe?

Glory Halleluia,
I raise my glass up to you
And I bow my head with utmost respect
And I think its only fair to warn you
That there's a storm that's coming up on you
And like a wind and the rain
My words are direct

Chorus

It's a funny word "friends"
You get beginnings and you got ends
I guess I see you when we're ashes again

Chorus

Soul Singing Lyrics

I've been down
Cascading and blue without a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk and honey lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Lets disappear and we'll hide underground
And we'll get high and we'll feel safe and sound
It comes around
Around

Chorus:
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Come on now come on now

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life a smile and not a frown
The sound
The sound

Chorus

Ballad In Urgency Lyrics

Here with me
And this price you pay
Just a wishful dream could be blown away
Ask yourself for better or worse
Because what's the use if it's just good luck

A black cat has crossed my path
Tell me what's good luck about that

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

Excuse me please
For my definition
But deeper still are my convictions
Urgently I wait to hear an answer
While I misconduct
A sad lost anthem
An anthem like you have never heard
Have you heard something so absurd

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Forever Young Lyrics

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

Sister Luck Lyrics

Worried sick my eyes are hurting
To rest my head I'd take a life
Outside the girls are dancing
'Cause when you're down it just don't seem right

Feeling second fiddle to a dead man
Up to my neck with your disregard
Like a beat dog that's walking on the broadway
No one wants to hear you when you're down

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

A flip of a coin
Might make a head turn
No surprise, who sleeps
Held my hand over a candle
Flame burnin' but I never weep

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

What a shame
(Repeat 2nd Chorus)

Thorn In My Pride Lyrics

Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your heartaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It's hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Are you wanting inspiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breating?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.
Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shine

Fearless Lyrics

You say the hill's too steep to climb
Climbing
You say you'd like to see me try
Climbing

You pick the place and I’ll choose the time
And I’ll climb
The hill in my own way
Just wait a while for the right day
And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds
I look down, hearing the sound of the things you’ve said today

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
Smiling
Merciless the magistrate turns ’round
Frowning

And who's the fool who wears the crown?
No doubt
In your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow
You look down, hear the sound of the faces in the crowd

Greasy Grass River Lyrics

Now I'm swimming in the greasy grass river
On my way to the black pearl sea
Yeah I'm floating down the greasy grass river
Come on child, come with me
Life is so easy on greasy grass river
Just take my hand and we can pretend to be free
You wanna be
Free
Come on with me

So take me down the greasy grass river
And wash my hair where the water's clean
Said lay me down by the greasy grass river
And unfold my mystery
The greasy grass river has water that whispers
Lets listen closely while she says she wants to be free
You wanna be
Free
You know what I mean

Said I'm out of my pocket and I'm out my mind

Got to Get Better In A Little While Lyrics

Don't you know what's wrong with me?
I'm seeing things I don't want to see
Sniffing things that ain't no good for me
I'm going down fast, won't you say a prayer for me?

It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while

The sun's got to shine on my guitar someday

Revolution all across the land
Just like Sly, you got to take a stand
Please don't hurt nobody, don't knock them down
Give them a helping hand to get off the ground

It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while

The sun's got to shine on my guitar someday

Still one thing that you can do
Fall down on your knees and pray
I know the Lord's gonna answer you
Don't do it tomorrow, do it today

It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while
It's got to get better in a little while

High Head Blues Lyrics

Sometimes I have a ghetto in my mind
Other times sunshine high head fine
In between I get cold, old mean
Intertwined with country pride open and kind
This draws a line

Sorry to coin a phrase
On either side is wisdom and rage
So keeping track of time
Racing with my age
Sleeping with the snakes
Forget that you showed up late
It ain't worth it baby

Chorus:
A charmed life it is
At least they tell you so
I got a good idea
It ain't like they say is so
And if it is then let me go
Let me go

Any day there might be hell to pay
But in other ways
It makes it seem ok
I'll tell you what I mean
It's not a plot nor a scheme
It's just peace in my mind
Again can I use the word kind
I ain't sorry about it baby

Chorus

Song of Love Lyrics

And it's all in the way you wonder
If you think you're learnin' how
Pick up your feet you don't have to pick up a gun
You can prod the sacred cow

You know the song of love
It's empty now
As it always seems
To have been
You can go on home

Used to be down to tear gas and clubs
What do you think about grenades
You know like a frag
Nonsense is as
Nonsense does
The judge's eagle promenades

You know the song of love
It's empty now
As it always seems
To have been
You can go on home

The good book tells us
"Thou shalt not kill"
What is the meaning of this phrase
Is it sometimes right and sometimes wrong
Depends if you're foolish or brave

You know the song of love
It's empty now
As it always seems
To have been
You can go on home

L.A. Lyrics

In a matter of time
There'll be a friend of mine
Gonna come to the coast
You're gonna see him
Up close for a minute or two
While the ground cracks under you

By the look in your eyes
You'd think that it was a surprise
But you seem to forget
Something somebody said
About the bubbles in the sea
And an ocean full of trees

And you know, L.A.
Uptight, city in the smog, city in the smog
Don't you wish that you could be here too?
Don't you wish that you could be here too?
Don't you wish that you could be here too?

Well, it's hard to believe
So you get up to leave
And you laugh at the door
That you heard it all before
Oh it's so good to know
That it's all just a show for you

But when the suppers are planned
And the freeways are crammed
And the mountains erupt
And the valley is sucked
Into cracks in the earth
Will I finally be heard by you

L.A.
Uptight, city in the smog, city in the smog
Don't you wish that you could be here too?
Don't you wish that you could be here too?
Don't you wish that you could be here too?

Downtown Money Waster Lyrics

To my low down downtown
Money waster
Your only saving grace
Is that i like to taste ya
But your flower is spoiled
Too easy to make ya
You got a .38 and your book of revelations
I got a .44 and a load of temptation

I am a rounder, like to round around
Two for one at the store on the corner
Little girl like to drink and sniffin' powders
Like the bars that stay open after hours
Like the boys that go 24-7
Too many late nights and you don't go to heaven

Share the Ride Lyrics

Hey there buddy
Slow down for me
I'm friendly and I'm clean
I will not rob you or cause you misery
Your wheels sound good to me
I ain't green with travel
As you can see
I only got one bag
If I am trouble drop me off
In Abilene
I'll pay my gasoline

chorus

Let me share the ride
Let me share the ride

It's hard living on travel time
Please let me share your ride

I never was a young man
Never felt old
This life is a mystery
My coffee's hot not cold
I'll turn your dashboard gold
Slow down take a look at me

I'm not not running from anything
I've no past to hide
I've got no secrets haunting me
I just easy ride

Mellow Down Easy Lyrics

You jump jump here
You jump jump there
You jump jump jump everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

You shake shake here
You shake shake there
You shake shake shake everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your topv
You wiggle wiggle here
You wiggle wiggle there
You wiggle wiggle wiggle everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Hard To Handle Lyrics

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You gotta' come back for more

(Chorus)

Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now

Yes I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

(Chorus)

Boys come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now
Yes I am

(Repeat Verse 1)
