One Mirror Too Many Lyrics

From the moment you see
The moment you breathe
The moment I touch you

From the moment you crawl
The moment you fall
The instant I loved you

From the moment of darkness
The moment of light
The second I kissed you

From the moment I enter
The moment I leave
In this moment of rapture

One mirror too many gonna tie you up
A life forever empty has got to be rough
Too many starless nights gonna leave you blind
You can never make it right
Unless you leave it behind

From the moment you stumble
The moment you run
In your presence I crumble
From the moment it happens
The moment you know
There's no life without you

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

Hotel Illness Lyrics

Oh good heavens, baby where's my medicine?
I must have left it outside with my etiquette
The undertaker's rule of thumb
It's hard to talk with a novocaine tongue

This room smells like hotel illness
The scars I hide are now your business
I can't seem to make hair nor hide of this
No baby love is not a punishment.

Hypnotized by your rotten behavior
This week's fashion is last year's flavor
I got a head full of sermons and a mouth full of spiders
The politics of the world's greatest liar

So tell me baby is it true all those things that they say about you...

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)

Sting Me Lyrics

If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You have the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me what you're seeing
This submission is a tired tradition
It's everyone's sacrifice

Well believe you me
I've got nothing up my sleeve
Except a heart and a chip on my shoulder
Yes I'm young and don't like getting older

Yeah but can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Come on my sweet little thing
What new things can you show me today
I got one question
I believe it's subjective
What is a wasp without her sting?

I don't want to sound bitter
Yeah you touch me just like murder
Living ain't so easy
When all I want from you is to sting me

Can you sting me

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

Just Say You're Sorry Lyrics

It ain't funny
It ain't cute
Can't be conceived as an attribute
Oh no, but things dont' work that way baby
Dont' click your heels
Don't give a hoot
Don't want a twenty-one gun salute
Well, would you? tell me baby, would you?

You suggested that we bury the bone
Remember this reminder when you start to get cold
You think you're lonely now
Just wait until you're old
Just say you're sorry
And I'll say I'm wrong
Just say you're sorry
And I'll say I'm wrong

Too ugly for beauty
Too honest for cool
You take what you get
Rather be a horse than a mule
Oh, don't take it personal, babe

You suggested that we bury the bone
Remember this reminder when you start to get cold
You think you're lonely
Just wait until you're old
Just say you're sorry
And I'll say I'm wrong
Just say you're sorry
And I'll say I'm wrong

Baby shakes his rattle
'Cos he's emptied his bowl
Don't know what he's eating
But he does what he's told
Oh yes he does
They all say the boy be crazy

You suggested that we bury the bone
Remember this reminder when you start to get cold
You think you're lonely now
Just wait until you're old
Just say you're sorry
And I'll say I'm wrong
Just say you're sorry
And I'll say I'm wrong

Spider In The Sugar Bowl Blues Lyrics

Well I always knew you were a special girl
Immediately I recognized you
Seen you float off the floor when I spy on you
In our garden at night you let your magic down

A spider in the sugar bowl blues
A messenger that brings bad news
Has no knives, only spoons
A sweet tooth for a new coccoon

Well the time stands still when I kiss your mouth
You put dreams in my head I cannot talk about
When we lay in our bed of one million stars
And your magic comes down and holds me in its arms

A spider in the sugar bowl blues
A messenger that brings bad news
Has no forks, only spoons
A sweet tooth for a new coccoon

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

Sloppy Drunk Lyrics

I would rather be sloppy drunk, than anything I know
I would rather be sloppy drunk, than anything I know
Give me another half a pint, boy, then you will see me go

Now I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Yes I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Now this is the reason why that I drink, I'm just trying to get along with you

I said oh, oh, bring me another half a pint
I said mmmhuh, bring me another half a pint
Well I believe I'll get drunk, boy, and then we gonna rock this joint

Well I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Yes I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Now this is the reason why that I drink, I'm just trying to get along with you

I said oh, oh bring me another half a pint
I said mmmhuh, bring me another half a pint
Well I believe I'll get drunk, boy, and then we gonna rock this joint

Cursed Diamond Lyrics

I lose myself
I forget myself
Sometimes I fault myself
I might fight myself
But then I make amends

I freeze myself
Rain on myself
Ok, so I stone myself
And I might even find myself
But then again what happens if I do

So unzip my pride
Open me up wide
So I can show this to you

I want to shine for you
I want to sparkle too
Just like a diamond cursed
Well you know it don't get worse
You know that I'll save you time
Your trouble now is mine

Hold me baby
Hold me girl
And I will laugh with you
If you want me to
Roll me in your splendor
I'll envy your surrender
And show you victory

I hate myself
Doesn't everybody hate themselves
So what, I scare myself
Then I tell myself that it's all in my mind
So I let the poison go
'Cause baby I always know
It will be there for me

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

Shake Your Money Maker Lyrics

Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker, and then

I got a girl lives up on the hill
I got a girl lives up on the hill
Says she gonna love me but I don't believe she will

You gotta shake your moneymaker
Shake your money maker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker, and then

I got a girl and she just won't be true
I got a girl and she just won't be true
She's locked to the bridge, she won't do a thing I tell her to

She won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her moneymaker
She wanna roll her activator
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't shake her moneymaker
She won't

Could I've Been So Blind Lyrics

How could I've been so blind
So empty that I've never felt warm
Can I spell it out
Turn myself out of my home
Lookin' like a fool
Feelin' even worse than it seems
Tryin' hard as nails
Beleivin' only in myself

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes
Sometimes

But my greatest fear
Paint a smile from ear to ear
Alone and cryin'
Living like this is no better than dying

I tell you baby things are gonna' change
Looking like we were caught out in the rain
Feeling lonely
That's the way it goes
Sometimes

Chorus:
Could I ever have been so blind
Hardest thing I ever had to do
Was stand up straight and tell it all to you
Look you right in the eye
Tell you baby sorry but I have lied

And now it looks like innocence is gone
I know right and I know what's wrong
Feeling lonely that's the way it goes

Sometimes
(Repeat Chorus 4 times)

Under A Mountain Lyrics

Never a heaven an age old question
Written from a cold place
I feel sour I need a shower
Or just a slap in the face
Circumstance has left romance
And a puzzle in front of me
Who knows the ending, if the truth need bending
A lie is the tool that you'll need

So I'm under a mountain
Stuck to this mattress
Perfume and valium

What makes a Sunday different from Monday
Could be a look in her eyes
In need of flattery she changes batteries
So that her light will still shine
The words she utters either flow or they stutter
They're either silly or wise
Anger with concern
But never to yearn
Only to be by your side

Lay down with number 13
Its a cold gray shame

Sometimes Salvation Lyrics

To lessen my troubles
I stopped hanging out with vultures
And empty saviours like you
I wish I had a nickel for every miracle
That you easily tricked me into

You can lead a horse to water
But faith is another matter
So don't you surrender
Cause sometimes salvation
In the eye of the storm

I've no time for accusations
Or conversations on all the bad, bad things you do.
Just a note from your jailor
Drugs and the relations
To all the people around you

You can lead a horse to water
But faith is another matter
So don't you surrender
Cause sometimes salvation
In the eye of the storm

I've kept secret your superstitions
And all its twisted wisdom
That I fell into

Sister can you try and find me?

Big Time Lyrics

Gonna leave the pain behind
Gonna leave the fools in line
Gonna take the magic potion
Gettin' in an old black car
Gonna take a ride so far
To the land of sun tan lotion
Gonna take it state by state
Til I hit the golden gate
Get my feet wet in the ocean

I'm still living in the dream we had,
For me it's not over...

Walkin on the bridge on day
Lookin out across the bay
I saw a rippling in the water
Once a big ship had passed
I borrowed a traveller's glass
And focused on the ocean's daughter
Kind of like a wave confused
Dancing in the sunset hews
She waved to me and called me over

I'm still living in the dream we had,
For me it's not over...

Talkin' bout a friend of mine
Talkin' bout a gold mine
Richest vein in any mountain
Talkin' bout the enemy
Inside of me
Talkin' bout that youthful fountain
Talkin' bout you and me
Talkin' bout eternity
Talkin' bout the big time

I'm still living in the dream we had,
For me it's not over...

Remedy Lyrics

Baby, baby why can't you sit still?
Who killed that bird out on you window sill?
Are you the reason that he broke his back?
Did I see you laugh about that?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it glide?

Can I have some remedy?

Remedy for me please.
Cause if I had some remedy
I'd take enough to please me.

Baby, baby why did you dye your hair?
Why you always keeping with your mother's dare?
Baby why's who's who, who know you too?
Did the other children scold on you?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it slide
