Track Name: Rattlesnake in the Brush
Pretty little thing of mine. You could take my name. We could get across these wild plains. I like my whiskey straight. You don't like the violence. Don't you know I'm burnin' out?
Blood and dirt mixes in. I'm just used to it.
You've got what I need. Brings me to my knees. Won't you lay down beneath these stars? Or leave me here to lay, where I'll forever stay, and let these roots wrap 'round my spine.
Blood and dirt mixes in. I'm just used to it. No remorse or hope. Rattlesnake in the brush. Follow down the hole.
Pretty little thing of mine. You could take my name. We could get across these wild plains.
Track Name: Dust and Buried Bones
I'm a beggar, and you're not comin' 'round to this desert place. A distant bird in the sky. Shoot it down.
The sun is beating down. And the path is wide.
My lips are dry and they don't part for words. Just wet them with cactus juice. I paid good money for you. I'm gonna shoot you now.
And the trail is long. With dust and buried bones.
Track Name: Smilin' Crooked with a Teary Eye
Why not come and have a drink with me? At a place where we can get a few for free. 'Cause I'm broke, and broken by apathy, and I just can't feel too passionately about anything but makin' tunes, runnin' 'round, and layin' down with you.
You say that ain't enough for a man to get by, you shake your head for a while and stare me stern in the eye. I say I'll change, and that I understand, but I'm just a boy behind the pressure of a man. And though I may be a lone when I die, I'll smile crooked with a teary eye and sing:
Oh, somebody pick me up. All I've got is a guitar and a Styrofoam cup, and all I really do is sing the blues.
Sing 'em for me one more time.
Track Name: By the Fire
There, by the fire, we'll be the expanse that is the the sky, the lake, and the coyote.
I love you so, but we are of the earth. And so, we will go back where we belong.
In the meanwhile, I'll drink, and fight, and love, and bless all the sky, the lake, and the coyote.
