    IJ

    Feed you falsely, to fantasize.
    Fooled clean, then you realize.

    What is a lie, disguised as truth?
    You preach to me, I preach to you.

    On your feet, the truth is said.
    Tyranny's knocking, shoot em' dead.
    Don't let them make you kneel and bob.
    Truth be told, inside job.

    Something wicked, this way comes.
    Rotten lies, from bleeding gums.

    Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
    They disappear, with all their lies.

    On your feet, the truth is said.
    Tyranny's knocking, shoot em' dead.
    Don't let them make you kneel and bob.
    Truth be told, inside job.

    This is sober.
    Yeah, this is real.
    Free humanity.
    Start to feel.

    Porcelain Tub

    Porcelain tub hundred years old
    filled with water, reflects the glow,
    of a candle's single flame,
    and the memories all that remain.

    Fairest maid the fall had seen
    fell in love with a traveler's dream,
    promises to have and hold
    until death pardoned their souls.

    Wedding bells on a winter's day
    porcelain tub to her he gave,
    hundred years old a rare antique,
    claws of brass for its feet.

    Weeks went by spring colors bloom
    could not hide the black and blue,
    fairest maid her tears ignored
    bore the rage of his selfish chore.

    Porcelain tub hundred years old
    water red, reflects no glow,
    of a candle's single flame,
    and the memories run from her veins.

    Lori's Song

    I've been walking backwards, for so long now,
    always figuring something's gotta give.
    I ain't got no time for this. Patience wearing thin.
    Get out of my way, I got life to live.

    Cause' I ain't quittin yet no not ever.
    Band's still rippin, dance ain't near bein done.
    Tank is full that open road is calling.
    Put the pedal down, man I'm on the run!

    Going back to Kiester,
    Cause' I wanna be there.
    Where my heart belongs yeah, and my soul is free.
    Don't need much more of anything.
    Just my country home and my loving family.

    Now there's a thought you might be thinking.
    With the hand I was dealt, there ain't no chance for me to win.
    Funny thing's all I see is aces.
    Now that's the reason for these dimples in my grin.

    Cause' I ain't laying down, not ever.
    My hand is smokin hot and I'm all in.
    I got two pretty babies I'm a calling my angels.
    And my sweet, sweet honey taking me like the wind!

    Going back to Kiester,
    Cause' I wanna be there.
    Where my heart belongs yeah, and my soul is free.
    Don't need much more of anything.
    Just my country home and my loving family.

    Cause' this old road it's been a windy road indeed.
    But I thank God for giving me all I need.

    Limbo Ladies Man

    Limbo ladies man, don't really know just how I got here.
    Limbo ladies man, it don't matter I ain't goin' nowhere.
    Not to heaven or hell, with the angels or the damned.
    A limbo ladies man.

    Traveled on the road to heaven but it just weren't right for me.
    I even spent a little spell in hotel purgatry.
    I heard of all the parties in hell down below.
    But big we can't stand to sweat, I found another place to go.

    Now I'm a limbo ladies man don't really know just how I got here.
    Limbo ladies man, it don't matter I ain't goin' nowhere.
    Not to heaven or hell, with the angels or the damned.
    A limbo ladies man.

    People say I look like Zac, but man I disagree.
    Well he's a better looking boy than I could ever be.
    My beard is getting old and grey, my head reflects the sun.
    No matter all them limbic gals, they call me daddy fun!

    Now I'm a limbo ladies man don't really know just how I got here.
    Limbo ladies man, it don't matter I ain't goin' nowhere.
    Not to heaven or hell, with the angels or the damned.
    A limbo ladies man.

  • 05:40 Lyrics Snowman

    Do you sleep soft and sound, like a baby confound, to her dreamery.
    Singing songs that resound, or the lovers and the gods, now a memory.

    Dreaming that wind, will come back again, and sail my stagnant vessel.
    Clawing to hope, with sand for my rope, as I fell to earth weaping.

    Do you find yourself now and again saying, "how did I get to hear?".
    Did I make a mistake, speak my words late, waste another year?

    Trapped and confused and confinded to this room, while the picture of you is fading.
    I have to let go, of the little that I hold, or the rest of my life I'll be waiting.

    Cause' I don't think I'll ever feel, the same as when we met that year.
    My troubled mind with all those fears, your smile made me believe.

    Are you sitting somewhere, just hoping to snare, a faint glimpse of me?
    And screaming so loud, that you're really proud for the chance to be?

    Free of my ghost, haunting you mostly, all of the days you are lonely.
    Faulting the snow, the norther winds blow, hiding the seeds of our story.
    No chance for sowing.

    Cause' I don't think I'll ever feel, the same as when we met that year.
    My troubled mind with all those fears, your smile made me believe.

    A Man's Gotta Make A Living

    Reading the lips, between sips, of the folks at the bar.
    Saying "ooh, I really love this song".
    They know every word, feel every note, hum every line.
    Takes them to a place they wish they were.

    Mix in a smile, all the while, heart is longing to breathe.
    Those crisp, clean mountain ranges, sunset loving you and me.
    But for now, take a bow, spill your sweat and your blood.
    Do like your daddy did, play your gig, your time's gonna come boy.

    Seems to me I got noting more to show.
    And it feels just like the day before.

    And they're pouring the same drinks, while I'm singing the same songs.
    Always knew I wanted more, felt so right when it was wrong.
    And here I am doing this all again, because a man's gotta make a living.
    A man's gotta make a living.

    Fillin' the house with the crowds, but dreaming on dirt road driving.
    With his lovely, lovely lady, her hair blowing in the wind.
    Chansing the sun, all day fun, it's so good to be free.
    Let's get lost together baby, you and me.

    Seems I gotta a little ways to go.
    But today's the day, there's so much in store.


    And they're pouring the same drinks, while I'm singing the same songs.
    Always knew I wanted more, felt so right when it was wrong.
    And here I am doing this all again, because a man's gotta make a living.
    A man's gotta make a living.

    That crazy love. It's gonna find you love.
    It's gonna tear that heart right out of you.
    Cause' you were born on the road.
    You're a gyspy soul.
    Don't deny it boy cause' it's a part of you.

  • 03:26 Lyrics Waiting On Your Ghost

    Remember how you used to say?
    We'd never ever end up that way.
    Fix me, fix you, escape to the mountaintops.
    Draw me a map, write me a note, tell me when to stop.

    Wasn't it you that said to me?
    Faith waits it's turn in line like destiny.
    I'm not really sure, not really sure, what my life would be.
    If you hadn't come, through them doors, been just what I need.

    And though our days be tattered and torn,
    we have not lost the flame.
    I'd rather love you for who you are,
    than waste my time away.

    Waiting on your ghost.

    Brandi Carlile

    Got you Brandi on my mind.
    While I'm trying to unwind.
    Listen to you sing your love songs, they sure are the healing kind.

    I can't take it anymore.
    My bleeding heart it's on the floor.
    Hear you singing cross' them airwaves, I must say, your songs I adore.

    Tasty tempos got me stompin', these worn out boots on the ground.
    Oh your meter makes me wanting, girl, you never to stop.

    Brandi darling understand.
    My weary soul, it's on the mend.
    I ain't singing no more sad songs, from now on I'm a happy man.

    Tasty tempos got me stompin', these worn out boots on the ground.
    Oh your meter makes me wanting, girl, you never to stop.

    There ain't nothing more to say.
    Save it for a rainy day.
    I'm just soakin up your sunshine, it's sure fine, thank you for the rays.
    I'm just soakin up your sunshine, it's sure fine, thank you for the rays.

    Tommy C

    Brother my brother, are you in the darkness when I sleep?
    Brother my brother, are you in the tears that I weep?
    Who would you have been to me? A star way up in my sky?
    What things would you have taught me that I'd of had for all time?

    Brother my brother, your life here wasn't very long.
    Brother my brother, your still in the hearts of everyone.

    Brother my brother, I feel you inside.
    Brother my brother, well I'll catch you on the flip side.

    The seventh was a boy, why was he the one?
    To leave us all so soon? To make us ten minus one.
    Brother my brother, I can't wait till' we meet.
    Brother my brother, why'd you have to leave?
    Brother my brother, all I gotta say.
    Is for me Tommy, oh brother won't you pray!

    Harmony

    I'm sick and tired of hearing myself cry when I sleep.
    So I think I'll turn off my feelings so I can get some relief.
    All I am constantly seeing is your gentle smile.
    And the change that comes over me when your eyes dance with mine.

    But if you're not ready to love me, well then I stand by your choice.
    I guess all I'm really asking, is to join me in one voice.
    As we fall, to our knees.

    And pray that we never stop singing, cause' harmony's all that we have.
    To keep us from ever forgetting the moment our voices met.

    Holy is the one who is letting us feel this love inside.
    Answers will be there for us if we have faith like a child.

    But if you're not ready to love me, well then I stand by your choice.
    I guess all I'm really asking, is to join me in one voice.
    As we fall, to our knees.

    And pray that we never stop singing, cause' harmony's all that we have.
    To keep us from ever forgetting the moment our voices met.
    I'll be right here when you're ready, no words will you have to say.
    As long as we just keep on singing, everything will be ok.

    I'm sick and tired of worry, so I think I'll just smile.
