Track Name: Weighed Down
can’t keep my eyes off the front door
but I’m stuck in my chair that’s stuck to the floor
the walls are paper thin, I wanna bust through
I’ve got gas in my brain, but lead in my shoes

Weighed down, mama, I’m weighed down
Lord I’m weighed down, I’ve got those weighed down blues

There’s an ache in my heart that I can’t seem to shake
I’ve got a hunger for words that I just can’t create
There’s a restless moan that burns through my head
a lingering echo of the last words you said

Dark water risin’ up to my neck
I swear I want to swim, I’ve got a life to protect
but my feet just won’t paddle and my arms will not stir
I’ve got this weighted down feelin’ and my brain’s just a blur
Track Name: Oh Angelina
I woke to your reflection
A memory from a dream
but my open eyes revealed nothing
but this empty, hollow, scene
of candles never burned
empty canvases and walls
and crumpled empty pages
thrown where shadows fall

it’s a pitty, it’s a shame
I’m so restless, I’m so lame
my heart is torn apart
at the mention of your name
words fall through me blindly
seems I’ve got nothin’ to say at all
I just repeat what others told me
and wait on you to call


Oh angelina
Oh, you tore me down
Oh, angelina
I should know better by now

well I never saw it comin’
you hit me from behind
It's a waste of time and energy
to have you wrapped up in my mind

These feelings are so sinister
I just can’t get ‘em out
I’m lost inside my own thoughts
and no one can hear me shout

oh angelina
Oh, you tore me down
oh, angelina
I should know better by now

take me angelina
take me in your arms
give me something
to hold on
to

don’t make me
forget about you
Track Name: Angie II
Angie you got me broken down again
you took me at my weakest and you robbed me of my friends
you burn like rain don’t, you fall like planes don’t, you’re a seamstress of lies
but you’re a kind-hearted mystic with the sun in your eyes

Angie, are you the end of it all?
Do you stand strong at the bottom of an order that is tall
or do you crumble like a stale old biscuit when I sink in my jagged teeth?
Will you fall apart with a lack of grace when I finally get too deep?

maybe I should give you another chance...
Oh wait, I did already and you tore me down
left me hangin’ from a noose, but I was up-side down
I’ve got to go, but I’m sure I’ll see you the next time ‘round

Angie you’re my future you’re my past
Any thoughts I ever have of you are certain not to last
from the moment I first saw you to the last time you crossed my mind
You have never let me rest, or even close my eyes
Track Name: Gasoline
I woke up in a dark place
Horses thundering behind my eyes
my thoughts pointed downwards
every word a disguise
the trash can in the alley
the shoes on the phone lines
a fool walking backwards
a baby that cries
gimme a match, gimme gasoline

Survivin' ain't easy
with a smile on your face
when the wind comes to catch you
your body gets erased
and every woman who sees you
dumps her thoughts on your brain
And it burns just like acid
not even bones remain
gimme a match, gimme gasoline

All these tired horses followin' me
tired like those broken memories
I don’t react to ruin with disgust
for the ruin buries what it must

An article of faith
may be all that I have
tucked away in the corner
that I keep behind my back
all the oceans in the world
I ain't seen nothin' yet
all I've seen is the surface
and I want to forget
gimme a match, gimme gasoline
Track Name: Death Has No Mercy
Gonna leave here walkin’
Gonna leave here satisfied
gonna get me a new engine
my gasoline is runnin’ dry
death don’t have no mercy
on those who sit around and cry

the walls will collide
I can feel it in my bones
the world’s in overdrive
any minute now
a number of things could explse
I’ll wash my face and comb my hair
and do my best to just let go

gonna pack my suitcase
with everything that I love
gonna give one last thought to
the last girl I was thinkin’ of
no woman fits in a suitcase
but if they did I’d probably bring me one

Gonna leave here walkin’
Gonna leave here satisfied
gonna get me a new engine
my gasoline is runnin’ dry
death don’t have no mercy
on those who sit around and cry
Track Name: Black And White Blues
I’m not a little supersticious
I’m hungry and I’m vicious
I’ll make a clean-cut robbery
pass it off as flattery
Ooh, did I catch myself braggin’?
I’ll put my foot in my mouth
a self-contained reaction!
cuz I can’t carry nothin’ out
It seems what I’m feelin’ is always wrong
either I feel nothin’ or I feel too strong
I’ve got the black and white blues but I’ve gotta keep movin’ on

I’m no politician’s daughter
I don’t conciously kill
I’m on the straight train to heaven
I keep away from cheap thrills
but when I open my mouth
my thoughts git back-words
sometimes I feel the need to
just follow orders
It seems what I’m feelin’ is always wrong
either I feel nothin’ or I feel too strong
I’ve got the black and white blues but I’ve gotta keep movin’ on

It ain’t a smooth transition
when I open my eyes
when I look into the mirror
I don’t know if it lies
if white is the rainbow
and black is my brain
than somewhere in-between
is the spectrum of my name
It seems what I’m feelin’ is always wrong
either I feel nothin’ or I feel too strong
I’ve got the black and white blues but I’ve gotta keep movin’ on

Livin’ in limbo
ain’t natural for me
I spent my whole life
tryin’ to set myself free
My misery is wasted
on extreme thoughts
keeps my stomach and my hands
tied up in knots
It seems what I’m feelin’ is always wrong
either I feel nothin’ or I feel too strong
I’ve got the black and white blues but I’ve gotta keep movin’ on
Track Name: Broken Down
A simple “knock knock” on the door
wouldn’t even make a sound
no you can’t hear my words
I can’t connect to the ground
It’s a bullet train runnin’
through the back of my mind
it just feels so supernatural
and homeless and blind

I can take it all in
but I can’t put nothin’ out
I got a brand new engine
but it feels like i’m broken down

a beautiful disconnection
between memory and truth
sometimes it can be crippling
sometimes I find a use
whether I do or not
I can’t find satisfaction
bangin’ my head on the wall
and gettin’ no reaction

some things are so hot
you can’t even get close
that ain’t the case with me
I’m just an ice-cold joke
runnin’ walkin’ talkin’ thinkin’
through the back roads of my mind
just gets lost in translation
‘neath the tangled, withered vines
Track Name: Preachin' Lonesome Blues
Bein’ lonesome is the cure, girl
when you wanna think straight
when you’re lookin’ for salvation
and your filled with hate
you’ve got nothin’
nothin’ to hold on to
nothin’ to hold on to, baby, but bein’ lonesome
And girl, I’m lonesome too

Bein’ lonesome is the cure, girl
when you’re tied to the wall
when motivations are fading
yet you hear a distant call
you wanna be runnin’
runnin’ so you can finally make a kill
you don’t know if you’ll find freedom runnin’
but you sure as hell won’t find it standing still

see desperation’s the solution when you cannot find yourself
‘cuz when you’re haunted by somebody you can’t think of no one else
and while you cannot be certain that your destiny is sealed
you cannot hide behind a lover and still see yourself revealed

bein’ lonesome is the cure, girl
for findin’ what was once lost
for gamblin’ with your preconceptions
and payin’ the cost
maybe you’ll find
what you were really lookin’ for
‘cuz I don’t think I’ve ever found an answer
behind a wide open door
Track Name: Alone
I can’t find my place
neither can you
too many distractions
too much to do
too many bills to pay
too many things to say

was our friendship a dream?
did it know no bounds?
or was it just two people
spinnin’ each other around
No direction
No conclusion

In dreams or day
In a million ways
I am
Alone

I told myself
I wouldn’t let it get me down
I told myself
I’d turn it around

You see where that took me?
I’m not so good
at denial

In dreams or day
In a million ways
I am
Alone

And time can be gentle
Time can be kind
Time can do anything
to change your state of mind
I know I can fight this
I know this is wrong
but for now...

In dreams or day
In a million ways
I am
Alone
Track Name: Fever In Four Walls
I’ve got to crawl across the floor
just to get somethin’ to eat
I’m tired from sittin’ and waitin’
to be swept off my feet
feel like I’m driftin’
feel like I’m losin’ control
I’ve got fever in four walls (four walls)
It’s swallowin’ me whole

a spider bit me on the neck
it won’t stop itchin’
flies are buzzin’ around
rotten food in the kitchen
I can’t describe
all the ways it all pins me down
I’ve got fever in four walls (four walls)
and there’s no one around

Open the blinds darlin’
let some light in just for me
gimme some time darlin’
I’m just afraid of what I might see

seems I remember a time
when things weren’t this way
when I wasn’t just standin’ in line
waitin’ for the end of the day
I had peace of mind
if only for a minute or two
I’ve got fever in four walls (four walls)
and no way to get back to you
Track Name: In The Presence Of Wolves
If you’re drowning in an ocean of want and need
and the loneliness inside you is all you can see
It’s that strange hungry feeling that creeps into your soul
when the darkness inside you has nowhere to go

the barriers between right and wrong get blurred
when there’s a pain in your heart that needs a cure
the anger inside you is pushed towards the one you love
until you make that loneliness fit like a glove

‘Till you find there’s something wrong
and you need to find some way
to sleep in the presence of wolves
and see another day

you may feel weary, you may not feel strong
you may not be able to listen to your favorite songs
you may find that your body, it quivers and it shakes
and you’re just not sure how much more you can take

You may seek salvation, or seek medical cures
You may run so quickly that your vision blurs
you may answer to those who would do you harm
You may jump into a stranger’s arms

‘Till you find there’s something wrong
and you need to find some way
to sleep in the presence of wolves
and see another day

Now listen close to me
there’s something you must hear
if the greatest feeling you’ve ever felt is fear
fear to step into
the wilderness alone
fear of breaking your heart, your mind and your bones
There is love that still surrounds you
People who will listen, and will care
Breathe deeply until it subdues you
Take in that clean fresh air

And you’ll find there’s something wrong
and you need to find some way
to sleep in the presence of wolves
and see another day
