Lyrics

  • Bells and Mottos
    Bells and Mottos
    [Verse 1]What does it take?
    I can’t escape
    The bells and mottos
    Cause they don’t want me here
    They’ve made it clear
    My time is borrowed
    I want to clear the slate
    But I can’t relate
    So I’m drowned in sorrow
    Now they can bring me back
    Cause I’m so relaxed And give in to the throttle
    [Bridge]
    Cause I know
    That real love
    Doesn’t do that
    And I know
    That no one Seems to care
    All I know Is my love
    Leaves me broken down and blue
    In the morning
    When I find my dreams came true
    [Solo]
    [Verse 2]
    So hold on to me
    With a can of grease
    And forget to follow
    Cause I won’t be back
    Til’ I relapse
    On pills I can’t swallow

    And I’m not at ease
    Only find my peace
    At the end of the bottle

    And when I’m not here
    The crowd will cheer
    That theres no tomorrow

    In a false bravado

  • Bi-Polar Express
    Bi-Polar Express
    And It comes to me now as I’m falling asleep
    Laying in the dragons keep
    That I laid it on the line for you
    And I’m leaving now with nothing to prove
    Cause whether it’s brave or a disease of the mind
    I think about you all of the time
    Waste away, I’m like the soles of my shoes
    Close my eyes, I’m only seeing in blueAnd I’m not ready for what comes now
    Cause what goes up always comes back down
    Well I hope that god blessed you
    Cause time is gonna test you
    You’re enough to make me bitter
    But mama didn’t raise no quitter
    Yeah I hope that god blessed you
    But I don’t know what I’m to do
    Because soccer moms and atom bombs don’t march to the same beat
    But I roll along while vagabonds are reaching at my feet
    While the smoke carries away all of the holes inside my head
    Sold my soul to all the jokers selling bread
    For ten bucks a head
    Well if they gave me a couple of pennies to speak
    I’d talk about how talking is cheap
    What you say is not thing the things that you do
    So why you talk like you’ve got nothing to lose
    And whether it’s brave or a disease of the mind
    I think about you all of the time
    Always dancing in the walls of the tombs
    Like a treasure in a temple of doom
    And I’m not ready for what comes now
    No I’m not ready to come back down
    can’t find what I’m meant to
    But I hope that god blessed you
    And you’re enough to make me bitter
    To break my heart until it splinters
    Cause I know that I’d let you
    And I don’t know what I can do
  • Don't Ask Why

    Don’t ask why

    Stop falling flat on your face, you better go and do something
    It’s always bitter to taste, all alone on the moon
    It’s only time that you waste when you sit and do nothing
    What should I do?
    What should I do?
    What should I do?

    Don’t ask why
    Why should I go, if there’s nothing?
    Don’t ask why
    Why should it roll, if it can’t?
    Don’t ask why
    Why do I go, to the lengths that I would go,
    When it’s early in the morning and I haven’t had a bit of sleep

    Now were reaching the hours of dawn
    And I’m still singing the same damn songs
    When the road up aheads looking bleak
    And you can’t stand on both of your feet
    Oh I’m begging you listen to me

  • Food Library

    Food Library

    Stumbled on her in the dead of night
    Clock was ticking but the time was right
    Said baby will you come my way
    And we can make it to the library
    Well tell me honey are you free or booked?
    Cause all the people check you out and look
    Set your imagination free by the end of the night, while every turn of the page make you feel alright
    Then soon enough you’ll be living in a fantasy If you come read with me

    Oh baby can you see the signs
    Why don’t you take a closer look and read between the lines
    Help you search the Dewey decimal
    Cause I know that you been searching for me high and low
    Why don’t you meet me in the over flow
    And the things we can read babe I just don’t know
    I know the words I’m writing down are only meant to impress and most importantly to get you out of your dress
    And I put them on the page because I don’t have nothing to say
    So I let them take you away

  • LEAVE ER JOHNNY

    LEAVE ER JOHNNY LYRICS

    (VERSE 1)
    I thought I heard the old man say
    Leave her Johnny, Leave her
    Tomorrow ye will get your pay
    And it’s time for us to leave her
    (CHORUS)
    Leave her Johnny, leave her
    Oh, leave her Johnny, leave her
    For the voyage is long and the winds don’t blow
    And it’s time for us to leave her
    (VERSE 2)
    Well the wind was foul and the sea ran high
    Leave her Johnny, leave her
    We shipped it green and none went by
    And it’s time for us to leave her
    CHORUS
    (VERSE 3)
    Well I hate to sail on this rotten tub
    Leave her Johnny, leave her
    No grog allowed and rotten grub
    And it’s time for us to leave her
    CHORUS
    (VERSE 4)
    Well we swear by rote for the want of more
    Leave her Johnny, leave her
    But it’s all been through so we’ll go on shore
    And it’s time for us to leave her
    CHORUS

  • Sticking With Me 

    Sticking With Me 

    You’ll never find me once I break the chains

    You’ll never find me cause I lost my brain

    You’ll never find me cause I’m off the road and I have lost the way

    My mind is freaking, have I lost my place

    My mind is freaking, have I lost the race

    My mind is freaking cause I’m on my own and in a foreign place

    I’m not sticking to love

    It’s not working

    I’m sticking with me

    I’m not sticking to love

    Til I find the key

  • Woah 

    Woah 

    Heavy Duty Woman won’t you ever drop it down for me

    I said Heavy Duty Woman won’t you ever drop it down for me

    Ive got a whole lotta money

    And you’re hard to please

    Tell me pretty baby did you ever stop and wait for less

    I said tell me pretty baby did you ever stop and wait for less

    I got a whole lot of money

    And a fresh tank of gas

    I said woah, go on and drop it down for low

    I said woah, go on and drop it down for low

    I got a whole lotta money

    That I’m bound to blow

    I said woah, go on and drop it down for low

    I said woah, go on and drop it down for low

    I got a whole lot of money

    That I’m bound to blow
