Track Name: livin' sin (one string cigar box guitar)
Hey boy whatcha doin’, where ya been
Living hard, living fast
You know that it’s a sin

I said, hey boy whatcha doin’, where ya been
You done it once, done it twice
and I know you’ll do it again
Track Name: man across the street
across the street there’s a man
the man across the street plays guitar
he sits on his front porch and strums away his life

the man plays no love songs
the man plays no funk
he only plays the blues and sometimes he chews his teeth black

the man across the street changed his sound
he no longer sees Daisy Mae
he don’t wear no jean overalls
instead we see him wearing spit shined shoes
Track Name: no luck at all
No Luck at All

Black cat go on cross my path
Good things always come in three's
Step on a crack, don’t break no backs
Got no luck a followin’ me

Chorus
I aint got no luck at all
No good or bad
I aint got no luck at all
I can’t miss nothing I never had

Don’t need no four leaf clover
Rabbits foot won’t do no good
Go on turn that horse shoe over
Cross your fingers knock on wood

Chorus
Track Name: johnny coldheart
Johnny was born on a cold, cold night
as the story goes.
that’s the reason why Johnny
was left with his heart froze.
mama raised him in a loving home,
teach him right from wrong.
mama said love everybody,
if you did, it would do no harm.

chorus:
little Johnny Coldheart, why’s your heart so cold
didn’t your mama teach ya, love’s worth more than gold

it didn’t take Johnny long to find
that he was empty inside
growin’ up’s easy for a boy you see
when you got no feelings to hide
all the girls liked Johnny
they all thought he was bad
but when they started talkin’ bout love
Johnny left ‘em in a flash

chorus

the sickness caught up with mama
as she lay in bed
that’s the day that ol’ Johnny realized
that his mama would soon be dead
on the night that mama died
Johnny finally broke down and cried
a stream of tears rolled down his face
oh he’ll remember that day

chorus 2x
Track Name: into the fire
Please rain on me
Break me away from the fire
Please rain on me
Break me away from the fire
Oh, and it rained that night
When the spirits climbed down from the stars

Oh, and it rained that night
When the spirits climbed down from the stars

Float down the river, carried by the light
Float down the river, carried by the light
Oh, we arrived at night
We slept all day and dreamt of the morning shine

Oh, we arrived at night
We slept all day and dreamt of the morning shine
We slept all day and dreamt of the morning shine

Filled with joy when there’s nothing that we got
Filled with hope when there’s nothing that we got
Oh, we ate that night from the dish of the motherland
Oh, we ate that night from the dish of the motherland
Track Name: heart of man
I’ve been to the heart, the heart of man
I’ve been to the heart, the heart of man
Enter the cave, of the Devil’s hand
And I’ve been to the heart, the heart of man

I’ve seen what’s in the heart of man
I’ve seen what’s in the heart of man
One part wicked, one part good, man never does what he should
I’ve seen what’s in the heart of man

Man was born with a heart of gold
Man was born with a heart of gold
The years pass on gold turns to stone, a man can’t love no more, no more
Man was born with a heart of gold

I’ve got the heart of man
I’ve got the heart of man
A man with a broken heart does what he can
I’ve got the heart of man
Track Name: esoteric blues
Chorus
Your words don’t mean a thing
Your words don’t mean a thing
Your words don’t mean a thing
Don’t mean a thing, thing to me

I can’t stand it what you’re doin’ to me
I can’t stand it won’t you let me be
I can’t stand it now you’re gonna see
I’m gonna do what I please

I’m so tired of running around
I’m so tired of you putting me down
I’m so tired of all your lies
I’m gonna cut you down to size

Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: mary's world
Can’t you hear the call of clouds they’re thundering crying for you
So take your sisters hand Mary, and bring her into the woods
Into the woods, into the woods

The trees will step aside and make a path for you to follow
Birds just sing their sing song, and lead you in the right direction
In the right direction, in the right direction

As I stand by the edge of the woods and real life
Just remember that things are greener on the other side
Flowers bloom every step you take
Go deeper and deeper can’t get away
Can’t get away, can’t get away

Can’t you hear the call of clouds they’re thundering crying for you
So take your sisters hand Mary, and bring her into the woods
Into the woods, into the woods
Track Name: pile o' bones
When I’m walkin’ down the street
And you bump into me
You look in my direction and all you see is
just a pile o’ bones, I'm just a pile o' bones

Chorus
I got pieces of flesh hangin’ off my chest
My cloths don’t fit and I look like a mess
I’m barely hangin’ on by the skin of my teeth
I’m just a pile o’ bones its not the way it should be

I can’t walk down the alley anymore you see
I got a pack of stray dogs just a following me
Cause I’m just a pile o’ bones, I'm just a pile o' bones

Chorus
Track Name: hold on me
Wipe off that smile and give it to me
I won’t be the one that you defeat
You think you got super powers
Against little girls that are holding flowers

Chorus
Well let me tell you something
You aint got a hold on me
Well let me tell you something
You aint got a hold on me

Well cut me into little pieces
And feed me to the sharks
Don’t want to be a part
Of your ego art
You think you got super powers
Against little girls that are holding flowers

Chorus

I’ll put my fingers on a red-hot pan
Before I’m ever seen holding your hand
You think you got super powers
Against little girls that are holding flowers
Well let me tell you something
You aint got a hold on me
Track Name: little mister
hey little mister don’t you come around here no
hey little mister don’t you come around here no more
listen up mister you must be crazy
if you come around here you’ll be pushin’ up daisies
when my mama comes a home, and she finds you here
Track Name: out in the space
We’re out in the space child it’s just you and me
We’re out in the space child it’s just you and me
Let’s float away, I wanna float away
I can’t see your face child, your smile pulls me in
Embrace you, it’s something I can’t do

I’m now on the moon child, I won’t let you in
Come back to me, wake up to me
You orbit my mind child, your smile pulls me in
I love you, I just never knew

Leo’s your star child, shout out your fire
Leo’s your star child, shout out your fire
It’s gonna be loud, I’m light years behind
It’s gonna be loud, but I’ll hear it light years behind
Leo’s your star child, shout our your fire
Leo’s your star child

We’re out in the space child
We’re out in the space child
