Track Name: Burnt By the Sun
I’m just a poor boy
Beat down by the sun
And I work for the man over there
Behind the barrel of his gun
He’s got his money
And he’s got his power
And he’s got that gun
So I’m here in the sun
Working by the hour

Because I’ve got no money
And I’ve got no gun
I’m burnt by the sun

You know my Daddy
He’s a working man
And he swung a hammer
Until it broke his hand
He loves his Woman
Two daughters and son
And he fed his family
Working for the man with the gun

Because he loves his Woman
And he has no gun
He’s burnt by the sun

We’ve got no money
But we’ve got our love
We’ve got no money
But we’ve got our love

We’ve got our love
But we’ve got no guns
So we’re burnt by the sun
Track Name: The Devil and the DEA
Freeze
Now don’t make a sound
Spread your arms and legs
Now lay face down
We know you’re holding son
Said the man in the mask
The one holding the machine gun
We’ve been watching this place for years
Now we’ve got a warrant
So you can stay right there

We’re gonna find what we’re looking for
We’re gonna find it

They said this was a church
One of universal love and music
We had come to play
It was a revival
And it would last all day
But they came to take us away
Some say it was The Devil
But I say it was The DEA

We’re gonna find what we’re looking for
We’re gonna find it
Track Name: Twitch
Well
I’ve got some needs
And I’ve got you on my mind
I’ve had a drink
A pill
I’m ready to fly
So babe
Will you come over tonight

You know I
Just left the bar so now the timing is right
For me to call you up and have you come by
Because babe
You make me feel just right

You make me shake and you make me twitch

Baby girl you got me down on my knees
Baby girl I’m begging
Please please please please please
Will come over tonight

What do I have to do
What do I have to say
What do I have to do
What do I have to say baby
I need you every way

You make me shake and you make me twitch
Baby when you do that thing
It makes me shake
And it makes me twitch
Track Name: The Hudson
I drowned my baby last night
Around 5AM
Well she used and abused me
And there’s only so much that a man can take
We met on a bridge that lead to a hook
And that’s where she’d give her last look
She’d asked me to come
So that she could say good bye to her and I
Another time

Well my love and time was wasted
And my body’s breaking
This is gonna take a whole lot of love out of me

So what happened next
I’m not really sure
But lord I feel like all my sickness is cured
The Hudson looked me right in the eye and said son it’s time
It’s time
Take her down to the river

Well my love and time was wasted
And my body’s breaking
This is gonna take a whole lot of love out of me
Track Name: Lord I'm Coming Home
Well I hear sirens around me
And I see lights in my mirror
There’s a girl floating down stream
Because I put her in the river

You’ll never take me alive

I’m heading strait for the border
Sunny days and white sand
Senoritas
Tequila
Oh Lord I’m coming home

You’ll never take me alive

Now they’ve got me surrounded
I’ve only got one chance
Pull out my gun
I’m gonna make this fun
Because I am Butch
I am Sundance
Oh Lord I’m coming home
Track Name: Shoot You Down
My girl is the one at the top of the mountain
My girl is the one at the bottom of the sea
My girl is the one with the gun
Pointed strait at your mouth
My girl she don’t mess around

She’ll shoot you down
If you come around
She’ll shoot you down

Well I told you she climbed to the top of the mountain
And I told you she swam to the bottom of the sea
And I warned you my girl was the one with the gun
Now she blew off your mouth
Man I told you
She don’t fuck around

She’ll shoot you down
If you come around
She’ll shoot you down
Track Name: If God is Love
If God is Love
The Devil is fear
And baby I’ll be right here
At the crossroads
Yeah baby
I’m at the crossroads
So I’ll go left
And you go right
And let’s see where we end tonight

You might be far away
But I’m right here
Waiting for you my dear
At the crossroads
But honey you know
That I’m getting old
And I can’t wait much longer now baby
So I’ll go left
And you go right
And let’s see where we end tonight

Baby can’t you see
You had me down on one knee
Now Love and Fear
They’re both here
And they’re laughing at you and me
They’re laughing at us
Track Name: Nobody Ever Broke Your Heart
You’re singing songs about heartbreak
You’re singing about a love that you had but lost
You’re singing songs about a boy
Who broke your heart and left you flat
But I know for a fact

No one
No one ever
No one
No one ever
No one
No one ever

Nobody ever broke your heart

So tell me when
Did this tragedy occur
Because I remember girl
When it was me
That it was you
Breaking hearts into two

No one
No one ever
No one
No one ever
No one
No one ever

Nobody ever broke your heart
Track Name: Ghost
We were young
Just little ghosts walking among the dead
One day our heavenly father
He took our hands
And this is what he said
You will fight with Tooth and Nail
To push your Legacy ahead
Now you must fight with tooth and nail
To push your legacy ahead

I am holding on
To the ghost of you
We were already dead

So we changed our name
Changed our style
Changed our point of view
Just like all their other successful bands do
Now bring in the suit
He’ll be the final tool to turn the screw
And suck our souls dry
Leaving us walking the earth
Without a clue

I am holding on
To the ghost of you
We were already dead

There is no secret to our misfortune
Or why at this age I still can’t find my way
There is a man
He sits behind a desk
His name is Evil
And we make a new deal
Every day

I am holding on
To the ghost of you

We were already dead
Track Name: Simple and True
He traveled long
Through the heartbreak
But he was weary
Needed a drink
He threw his glass over his shoulder
And that was the last time
I’d see my brother

No one he loved will be the same
No one he loved will be the same

Now whiskey’s flowing through his veins
His darkest thoughts
Run through his brain
He was selfish
And my family
My Friends
That night his sentence
Came to an end

No one he loved will be the same
No one he loved will be the same

If one day I should see you
If your ghost should come to me
Say something simple
Like my friend I’ve missed you
Something simple
Simple and true
