Track Name: Wilted World
Walking the razors edge a tight rope type of conversation
trying to float away you raise your hands in the congregation
I am your peer pressure hungry pig

Isn't it all a wilted world we are living in
isn't it such a a wild ride you can't help stepping in
i wish i didn't know just how it ends
it ends and begins again

my little dynamite i can see your head exploding
trying to cut the fuse on the firework you've been holding
sit back relax let it make you sick

Isn't it all a wilted world we are living in
isn't it such a a wild ride you can't help stepping in
i wish i didn't know just how it ends
it ends and begins again

sit back relax let it make you sick
moving on forward keep laying them bricks
sit back relax let it make you sick

Isn't it all a wilted world we are living in
isn't it such a a wild ride you can't help stepping in
i wish i didn't know just how it ends
it ends and begins again
Track Name: Silver Fox
Fuck it I'm going out
Lord knows i deserve it
All work and no play make for a tired man

I head to silver fox
I put on my tie
Maybe they just don't like grey hair anymore

And we'll dance around and play musical chairs
While all the boys sit back and slick their hair
and say oh they just don't make them like they used to
Well I'm sitting right in front of you

I wake up with a headache
Tie still around my neck
As i lay quietly next to a young man's dreams
I'm careful like a pussycat as I head for the back
And leave a note that states
You know where to find me

And we'll dance around and play musical chairs
While all the boys sit back and slick their hair
and say oh they just don't make them like they used to
Well I'm sitting right in front of you
Track Name: Laura Sue
I watched my life through the psycho ward
I write checks that i cannot afford
I drive an 82 camaro two door
i have many names but you can all me Laura Sue

Why so blue laura sue
don't you know i needed you
Why so blue laura sue
don't you know i still love you

I am a patient and i am a nurse
either way i smoke on the same stone bench
im a rose with many thorns
but you can call me Laura Sue

Why so blue laura sue
don't you know i needed you
Why so blue laura sue
don't you know i still love you

Even when you couldn't recall my name
as we melted away the florida afternoon
I thought you were crazy
even though i knew you were insane
and when the fat lady sang
you joined her on the roof

Why so blue laura sue
don't you know i needed you
Why so blue laura sue
don't you know i still love you
Track Name: Steel Town
I worked all my life in a steel town
of Monaca PA
There is only one way to get out
that's steel in your veins
Every morning put my wings on
hoping i could fly away

But this steel town has got a way with me
coming from this steel town and its brown bottle disease
hail mary hail mary hail mary

My baby brother and roger
learned the hardest of ways
i never bet on the races
but its debts I'm still to pay
I grew up tall never having a man
say i love you to my face

Oh how this steel town has got a way with me
coming from this steel town and its brown bottle disease
hail mary hail mary hail mary
Track Name: Master
Close your eyes baby drift off to sleep
you're laying naked at my feet
like an ivory statue
Im endangered looking for help
you picked my bones from the vultures mouth
and you put me back together

Im a humble man with alabaster hands
praying for answer
you took the pennies from my eyes
as i looked into your light
i knew you were my master

A clove of garlic a dash of salt
ill keep the suckers away from your heart
keep it pumping like an engine
As you float there in your white sundress
my thoughts are impure i must confess
I'll take you as my offering

Im a humble man with alabaster hands
praying for answer
you took the pennies from my eyes
as i looked into your light
i knew you were my master

Im your master
Im your master

And ill kneel at your feet
these sins ill never repeat
and ill kneel at your feet
these sins ill never repeat
Track Name: Mary Jane
I can feel the tingle in my toes
my brain starts swelling like the watermelons grow
Narcolepsy is dragging me down
my bones pile up like sticks on the ground
who's gonna pick me up when i get down

My mary jane. she takes away my pain

I could live frivolously
but sunflowers grow where my money should be
i used to take things seriously
in this life in fast forward generation on repeat
who's going to take the time to wash my feet

My mary jane. give me that cleansing rain

but don't take it from me
you get what you give and you reap what you seek
and i seek

Mary jane.
