Nebakanezer Lyrics

Nebakanezer never knew
He left his needle outside in the rain
And it rusted through
He kept twenty-nine blackbirds
but only one flew
Spent most of his time making holes
And licking his wounds
Nebakanezer lost his wife
She took her diamond rings and was
gone before the light
She left one satin shoe and a
very dull knife
She left one satin shoe and a very dull knife

So tell us what the sorry singer might do
All of his friends complain
That they got the flu
They ain't sick in the head
They look like the living dead
And that's not cool

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

Pastoral Jam Lyrics

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

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

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

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

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...

P.25 London Lyrics

I am a cobweb
in the corner of the room
I tell you I build myself a boat baby
so c'mon and cry me a monsoon

get busy on it
and make it deep

chorus:
imagine how surprised all the kids will be
empty bottles, saviors they crawl
that has always been and will always be
there's a hornet's nest in my head,
come and save me

If I dont say nothing (if I don't say nothing)
you say now tell us what to do
so I tell ya'll this is just how I feel
someone else calls it the news
but that's yesterday
yesterday's news

chorus

Nasty Boogie Woogie Lyrics

She do the Nasty Boogie Woogie don't you know
Nasty Boogie Woogie don't you know
Nasty Boogie Woogie don't you know
Nasty Boogie Woogie don't you know
She do the Nasty Boogie Woogie,
Nasty Boogie Woogie don't you know

Mama bought a chicken, mistook him for a duck,
Laid him on the table with his legs stuck up
Yonder come the children with a spoon and a glass
Catch the gravy dripping from his ass, ass, ass

chorus

Well my grandma was too old to go
She listened in on the radio
She got happy feet, pulled up her dress
Shouted out lord that boogie's the best

chorus

Well grandpa in the kitchen a'drinkin' gin
Pullin' the whiskers on his chin
He heard about the boogie, said "It ain't no sin"
He grabbed grandma, said "Let's boogie again"

chorus

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

Thick 'n' Thin Lyrics

Got a chainsaw buzzin'
Who's that cussin'
Eyes start blinkin'
The boys all start their wishing

Left holdin' the bag again
Buring it at both ends
Don't believe she's a friend

Chorus:
Thick, thick & thin
Let it loose now, let it go to the wind

Got my clock tock tickin'
Hear the madame start bitchin'
See the boys itch itchin'
Do girls ever know what they're missin'

But it sounds like shit to me
Last laugh mine will be
I don't believe she is clean

Chorus:
Thick, baby, yeah, thick & thin

No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

She Lyrics

She she came from the land of the cotton
Land that was nearly forgotten by everyone
And She worked and she slaved so hard
A big old field was her back yard in the delta sun
Oh, but she sure could sing
Oh, she sure could sing

Then He looked down and he took a little pity
The whole town swore he decided
He'd help her some
And he didn't mind if she wasn't very pretty
For deep inside his heart he knew
She was the only one
Oh but she sure could sing
Yea she sure could sing

She had faith, she had believing
She led all the people together in singing
And she prayed every night to the lord up Above
Hallelujah oh hallelujah
They use to walk singing songs by the river
Even when she knew for sure
She had to go away
And she never knew what her life had to give her
And never had to worry about it
For one single day
My but she sure could sing
Oh yes sure could sing

She had faith, she had believing
Led all the people together in singing
And she prayed every night to the lord up above
Hallelujah oh hallelujah
She she came from the land of the cotton
Land that was nearly forgotten by everyone
And She worked and she slaved so hard
A big old field was her back yard in the delta sun
Oh, but she sure could sing
My, she sure could sing
Oh, but she sure could sing
Oh, but she sure could sing

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)
