Track Name: Away Away
walking down the road today
I saw myself inside a place I know
that I would never go

I was drinking loud with a friend
we both wore our shit eating grin
and I held my glass like a faberge egg

Chorus
and we told ourselves
away away
this is the way we'll go
we'll drink our sours in a cup you know

and we told ourselves
away away
this is the way we'll go
we'll drink our sorrows 'til they drown

so I broke myself away from this
reflection that would not pay the bill
but just left me broke and loitering
and I met a man about a dog
we lingered on the consequences of
our being born

Chorus
Track Name: 33 Bus
dime store burden and you're losing your hair
overpass keeps your secrets as if I care
if you let yourself loose of course I've had my share
I'm out drinking 'til 9am

with the cocaine chasers on the 33 bus (it's alright, it's okay)

god ain't around
at least he never seems to show his face in this part of town
I ain't got no friends
at least not the kind that wanna sink into the bitter end
the rent's never due
when it's you and your dog by the tunnel where the train comes a rumblin' through
well, I guess I depended on the kindness of a few

with the cocaine chasers on the 33 bus (it's alright, it's okay)

with the parking lot ghosts and a paper bag
it ain't talking to yourself and my cig ain't a drag
the bolts only come loose if you're thinking too hard
well, don't think so hard (you always think so hard)

its okay!

we got cocaine chasers on the 33 bus (it's alright, it's okay)

God ain't around
at least he never seems to show his face in this part of town
and I ain't got no friends
at least not the kind that wanna sink into the bitter end
the rent's never due
when it's you and your dog by the tunnel where the train comes a rumbling' through
well I guess I depended on the kindness of a few

with the cocaine chasers on the 33 bus (it's alright, it's okay)
Track Name: Like A Bird
it's very strange this time of year
I don't know you, but we get along
the nights are tiresome and I am weak
just give me a year or two and then I'll speak

Chorus
crow like a bird for love
take chances and sing for love
break hearts, lose rings for love
just make damn sure that it's love

my pen is cheap and my hair is long
I'll meet the freaks sing their song
about a world of love and pain
about a world where we are born again

and we go wahoo a wahoo a wahoo a woo

crow like a bird for love
Track Name: Can't Be Tamed
I'm running for the door
I'm trying, but I'm such a whore
neon's flashing my favorite disease
phony, phony, phony, baby please

Chorus
I'm holding steady in the back of this bar
I've got a head full of ideas that I'm dragging through the mud
whisky high, I don't remember my name
I'm just an animal that cannot be tamed

she's a pistol in heels with a cheetah coat
I'm draggin, she's reeling me in by the throat
she's daydreaming of night curled up with a snake
should I break my promise or is it a mistake

Chorus
Track Name: It's Coming
It's coming...to the forest
...up river
...through the jungle now
...down market
...up broadway
....to times square now

And I'm gonna buy, buy a gun

It's coming...to montrose
...to ojai
...to your little town
...to london
...to oakland
...to berlin now

And I hope this ball don't fly into the sun

It's coming....to the desert
...to the ocean
...it's coming soon to a wasteland near you

And roger I do believe this race is run
Track Name: Jukebox Honky Tonk
it's been a long while in this shady motel
enough rocks and whisky to give me some hell

i gotta country heart and a california mind

girls i spent the evening with have come and gone
got this ol' guitar but i don't hear no song

i wish i was the one clad in black

this ocean view has got me useless
i have grown soft and i've grown bored

give me them landlocked blues and that
jukebox honky tonk

i wanna feel like t-bone or merle haggard
i want the lows to be legitimate

sometimes i feel like such a california clone
i just gotta spit
Track Name: Goddamn
every time I go
way across town
a voice tells me no
but it can't bring me down
cause I'm off to find
my sweet relief in time
to fight these cold sweats
and to release this ol' mind

Chorus
cause it's goddamn hard to look out on the street
It's cold and it's darkness thriving to a beat
and it ain't god's drum and it ain't god's son
no it ain't god's drum and it ain't god's son

Chorus

well this big ol' ball
turns like it should
and my thoughts are thrown
right into the sun
