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

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

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)

Let 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

Polly Lyrics

If the wild bird could speak
She'd tell of places you had been
She's been in my dreams
And she knows all the ways of the wind

Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins

Dreams can cover much time
Still they leave blind
The will to begin
I searched for you there
And now look for you from within

Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins v

Garden Gate Lyrics

Brown eyed girl
Precious flower
From your slumber awake
We have come to the fateful hour
And our love cannot wait

Chorus
Meet me at the gate
At the garden gate
Meet me at the garden gate
You made a promise now don’t be late
Meet me at the garden gate

Don’t tell your mother
Don’t tell your father
We both know it’s far too late
When we fly they won’t come after
And they will know our love is great

Chorus

You are sweet as you are tender
You are wise beyond your years
You are a jewel amongst the cinders
So don’t shed a sorry tear

Darling Of The Underground Press Lyrics

So the story goes that you
Sold your soul for delusions of beauty and courage
While young at heart is a nice place to start
Can the truth hold all this baggage

So tell all your foes
Because my friends know
That your white flag ain't no sign for surrender
And those books that you've read have gone straight to your head
And made you the great pretender

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe once a week

So tell me how it feels it if even seems real to be the darling of the underground press
Baby please can I see some ID
I don't believe you come from a royal family

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe yourself once a week
Oh I've heard that it's good to look before you cross
No one, no one will ever find you if you don't get yourself lost

A Train Still Makes A Lonely Sound Lyrics

As i listen to the wheels
Hear them going round and round
It reminds me of the trains
That still makes a lonely sound
It reminds me of the girl
That came from knoxville town
And how on that april day
When she took this old boy down

Chorus:
Oh tennessee you got me runnin’
And i’m not coming back this time
Way out west is where i’m going
To forget the one i left behind

Well i might have seen moses
Standin’ on the penn state line
Just another wanderer
With an angel on his mind
I know love has it’s reasons
The way it comes and it goes
There’s no mystery in seasons
Or of this hard cold road

Title Song Lyrics

You know I never wanted it to be like this
I've been lost in sandstorms
Left naked by your kiss
In the face of God
Of God and his poison leaves
The way it feels right now oh yeah
I really want to believe

So then you look on me with sad black eyes
Well I heard it coming yeah
And you know I lost my smile
In a January that never ends
The gold affections of my past
Are now just rusted tin, yeah

Well I really want to see you again
I miss my lover, as my best friend
Yeah baby I , I want you right by my side
With you baby, I'd spend all my time

They said they'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
Yes, with a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
If I could be your title song

So every now and then I get sad, yes it's true
Well you've known me long enough now baby yeah, it's nothing new
Like, like, when I'm feeling bad
I feel underwater I feel blue
And you know the only thing I ask from you baby
Well, is can I swim to you, yeah

Well I really want to begin this again
Cause I miss you as my lover, I miss my best friend
Oh baby I, I just want you right by my side
Yeah cause with you girl I would spend all my time

Said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Yeah

Well baby, I, yes I want to begin this again
Well cause I miss my lover, and yes I miss my best friend
Oh baby you know I want you right by my side
Down with you baby, I'll spend all my time

We said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
A girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could only be that way
I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Well I won't be lost for long
If you could be my title song
My title song

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

Lady Of Avenue A Lyrics

You said goodnight
Wrapped your scarf up tight
And left into a winter scene
The lower east side
Is just a place to hide
A place to privately dream

Chorus:
Good times and lost nights on Avenue A
Don’t let the bright lights take you away
You just can’t believe
What the city folks say
My lady of Avenue A

These old downtown streets
Where lovers meet
To sometimes laugh to sometimes cry
A strange parade all new things fade
But somehow this place stays the same

Chorus:
Good times and lost nights on Avenue A
Don’t let the bright lights take you away
You just can’t believe
What the city folks say
My lady of Avenue A

You fall asleep
I hear you breathe
The snow outside
I make some tea
The cats awake
And plays with string
As i slip into a dream

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

I Ain't Hiding Lyrics

Rust on my pickups
And blood on the stage
Seeds in the ashtray
And coke on a blade
Nyc delivers that's a guarantee
The only thing that keep the day from me

Line at the bathroom
Line at the bar
Take it outside
Do the rest in the car
Hard candy babies in a bright light fright
Rock and roll rat race everybody's uptight,
That's right

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Stayed on the dance floor
'Cause you can't find the door
Can't run out 'cause there's always more
Keep on rocking 'cause it's not even four
Turn up the bass until your ears get sore

I ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Ain't your saint ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby i ain't hiding

Don't Do It Lyrics

Baby don't you do it, don't do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

A sacrifice would make you happy if nothing for myself
Now you wanna leave me for the love of someone else
My pride is all gone whether I'm right or wrong
I need you baby to keep on keepin' on

You know I'm trying to my best
Oh i'm trying to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
Well I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

Go down to the river and there I be
I'm gonna jump in girl, but you don't care bout me
Open up your eyes
Can't ya see I love ya?
Open up you heart, girl
Can't ya see I need ya?

Oh baby don't do it, do it, do it
Don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it don't you break my heart

My biggest mistake was loving you too much and letting you know
Now you got me where you want me and you won't let me go
If my heart was made of glass well then you'd surely see
How much heartache and misery, girl, you've been causing me

While I've been trying to do my best
You know I've tried to do my best
Don't do it, don't you break my heart
Pleeeeease don't do it, don't you break my heart

Descending Lyrics

Have mercy baby
I'm descending again
Open your eyes
This time it's sink or it's swim
No sermons on ascending
No verdict on deceit
No selfish memorandum
No confusion for me

Curses
Curses and clues
A feast for fools
Have mercy baby
And hand me downs
It was just a few years ago
You'd hand me ups and map
Right out of town
But I would let it slide
Like mercury
Silver and quick
Poisonous and deadly
So deadly

Hot Burrito #2 Lyrics

Yes, you loved me and you sold my clothes
I love you, but that's the way that it goes
So it goes
Yes, you know how I feel
So it goes
It just couldn't be real

And we know it's wrong
And I don't think it's gonna go on
When I come home carrying my shoes
I've been waiting to tell you some news
And you want me home all night
And you don't want another fight
But you better love
Find some love
You better love me, Jesus Christ

Yes, you loved me and you sold all my clothes
I love you, baby, but that's the way that it goes
So it goes
I guess you know how I feel
So it goes
Yes, it couldn't be real

And you want me home all night
You just don't want another fight
But you better love
Find some love
Love me baby, Jesus Christ

Will The Circle Be Unbroken Lyrics

I was standing by my window
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

(Chorus:)
Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

I said to that undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For this lady you are carrying
Lord, I hate to see here go

(Chorus)

Oh, I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

(Chorus)

I went back home, my home was lonesome
Missed my mother, she was gone
All of my brothers, sisters crying
What a home so sad and lone

(Chorus)

We sang the songs of childhood
Hymns of faith that made us strong
Ones that mother maybelle taught us
Hear the angels sing along

(Chorus)
