Track Name: Eileen
I got one Muck boot
Wish that I had two
But I’ve got one Muck boot
Wish it matched my shoe

Had to misbehave
Lost it on the way
Had to misbehave
Looking on eBay

Pink Boggs suit me fine
$139
Good Will had an eight
A half more would be great
Found one in a nine
Keeping one foot dry
The other’s waterlogged
Wish I’d bought the Boggs

One foot sleeping
One foot in the grave
Put my best foot forward but you’re pulling my leg
Waiting hand and foot for the shoe to drop
In feet of clay, in my Achilles’ spot
I’ve got a foot in the door
I’ve got feet in both camps
Not cut out to run
No foot to stand on

I’ve got one Muck boot
Wish that I had two
I’ve got one Muck boot
Wish that I had two
Track Name: Mud In Your Eye
I like the way you slide me into nothing ‘til the morning light
And I like your seductive vibe when you call me to imbibe
So here’s a little bit of mud in your eye ‘cause I’m bent on a binge again
Here’s a little bit of mud in your eye
‘Cause if nowhere’s where we’re going, I’m in

Ooh, it’s a sunny day and things are gonna go my way
Ooh, if they don’t go my way
Well, it’s bottoms up anyway

I like turpentine but I can’t tell it at 3am
And I’d like a porcupine
If I could hug it, it might be my friend
So here’s a fever
Here’s the shakes, heaves and rash
Here’s the loss of your suburban friends
Here’s a room in a halfway house
‘Cause I like the way you spin!

Ooh, it’s a sunny day
I think I’ll give my kids away!
Ooh, this rehab is great
I think I’ll stay an extra thirteen days!

Ooh, it’s a sunny day and things are gonna go my way
Ooh, if they don’t go my way, I think I’ll
Crack another one
Crack another one
Today

Stop!
Track Name: Waiting For The Show
Hey, Your Honor, can you meet me on the edge of town?
You’ll wanna see what’s going up and not coming down
There’s a banker man flyin’, man he’s swinging way up in the air!
We don’t mind if you stare

‘cuz we ain’t got no place to go, we’re just waiting for the show
We ain’t got no place to stay, all our hearts in disarray

I’ve got five good reasons you should catch our show, y’know
One’s bumpin’, one’s thumpin’, one’s fun and two are blond, y’know
That man is bleeding dollars
See it pour right out of his eyes
And yet nobody cries

‘cuz we ain’t got no place to go, we’re just waiting for the show
We ain’t got no place to stay, all our hearts in disarray
Take your golden diamond things
Take your stupid blingy rings
We ain’t got no place to go, we’re just waiting for the show

I wanna see that rich man hanging from a tree
And then the rich man I’ll be

We ain’t got no place to go – We’re just waiting for the show!
We ain’t got no place to go – we’re just waiting for the show!

No place to go
No place to go
Waiting for the show
No place to go

Hang ‘em high!
Hang ‘em high!
Hang ‘em high!

Smiles from spirits whose eyes don’t smile
Smiles from spirits whose eyes don’t…
From spirits whose eyes…
Track Name: Steal Me Away
When I say I do love you, you know it’s true
When I say I wanna thieve with you, darling, I do
So steal me away
Hold me today
Without ramsom

You and me, we came to be on a very first could-be-felony
A B&E, a little thievery
BOLO 4 5-0, cuz we just PIC
The open air
Michigan despair
Stealing what you owned already

Delicate mistress
I am waiting
I am wanting
I’m in need

When I say I do love you, you know it’s true
When I say I wanna thieve with you, darling, I do
So steal me away
Hold me today
Without ransom

You hooligan
You creeping criminole
Your gutter-punk mack-mommy hood-robbin’ G
I’m hostage
Cuz you bangin’
And I know that I know that you robbin’ me

You and me
We so LOC
And loco like a new kind of crazy

Oh, my mistress
I am waiting
I am wanting
I’m in need, terrible need

When I say I do love you, you know it’s true
When I say I wanna thieve with you, darling, I do
When I say I do love you, you know it’s true
When I say I wanna thieve with you, darling, I do
So steal me away
Hold me today
Steal me away
Hold me today
Without ransom....

Hostage to your brazen face
Your quick retort
Your total lack of grace...

Hostage to your hazel glare
Your love demands
I will be there...

Hostage to your cell of play
I’ll play all day if you want it that way...

Hostage to your every whim
Come on out and steal me again
Track Name: Detour
When one door closes, a new one opens up again
A detour takes us to places we swear we’ve never been
We’re just out on the patio talking like we’ve always been friends

Your hazel eyes float the conversation right into the stratosphere
You don’t know how I’ve longed just to have your body near
If language is my enemy, I’ll wade thru every Thesaurus, every dictionary

Rooms will change when we set things right like we’d like to see
We rearrange but it’s not because of boredom, it’s necessity
I’ve arranged you in my life
I’m not letting you escape
You’re in my grasp, you see

Arranged you in my life
And I’m not letting you escape
You’re in my grasp, you see

You’re planted as my new road,
My new room, my fate, my love, my life, my destiny
Track Name: Midnight Drive
Oooh yeah...

I don't know where this wind is going
A storm is on the verge and I just don't care
I wanna get in a fight tonight
I wanna get out on a midnight drive
You better come with to keep me alive
'cuz you're the one thing that I don't mind

Yeah, you in the seat right next to me
Cutting loose on a midnight drive

With a rear view light faint from the city
I wanna punch a hole right through the sky
I wanna take on a tornado
Wrestle him down and do a do-si-do
Let's crank the stereo
Step on the gas and away we go

Yeah, you in the seat right next to me
Cutting loose
Singing way off key on a midnight drive!
When you're with me
I'm wild, I'm free, I'm proud and I feel
I can take it all in stride

Like a charging horse
Way off course
The wind at our back might blow your stack
And I don't know where this wind is blowing...

You wanna jump on and lose your mind?
You wanna dance at the scene of the crime?
I wanna pull over
and take you on a thrilling ride

Yeah!
Mid. Night. Drive!

You in the seat right next to me
Cutting loose
Singing way off key on a midnight drive!
When you're with me
I'm wild, I'm free, I'm proud and I feel
I can take it all in stride

Mid. Night. Drive!

I don't know where this wind
I don't know where this wind is blowing...

I don't know where this wind
Don't know where this wind is blowing
Mmm-hmm.

I don't know where this wind,
Don't know where this wind is blowing

I don't know where this...
I don't know where this... wind...
Track Name: I Saw Happy
It’s alright, It’s OK
You kiss me deeply, then you say
It’s alright, it’s OK
I don’t want you
It’s OK, it’s alright
A shooting star dies in flight
It’s OK, it’s alright
Well, here we go

It’s alright, it’s OK
That’s just the way it is, they say
It’s alright, it’s OK
Fish in the sea
It’s OK, it’s alright
I can’t negotiate or fight
It’s OK, it’s alright
It’s not right –
Not right.

I don’t want to be an inconvenience
But I’m lost and found, found and lost with you
So if it’s done, it was fun but I know we’re thru
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s not right…
I Saw Happy
I Saw Happy…

It’s alright, it’s OK
The sky is falling every day
It’s alright, it’s OK
It never falls
It’s OK, it’s alright
From the shadow to the light
It’s OK, it’s alright
Well I’ve had enough

I don’t want to be an inconvenience
But I’m lost and found, found and lost with you
So if it’s done, it was fun but I know we’re thru
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s not right…

I’m a home for your heart to hide in
I stand secure
I’m a dam for your raging waters
I’ll be there for sure
I can take what you need to dish out and come back for more
But I’ve seen the long lines
The marginalized
The bottom feeders are fine in your eyes
When I saw happy…
I Saw Happy

It’s alright, it’s OK
You kiss me deeply, then you say
It’s alright, it’s OK
I don’t want you
Track Name: Alice In The Sky
I'll never go back to Muskegon
You won't find me traversing there
I'll never go back, back to its junkies and its whores
The taste of their foul in the air

I'll never go back, back to addiction
You won't find me filling that sad role
You won't find me OD'd or falling over in town square
'Cuz that fucked place no longer is my home

Yodelayhee!
That place is not my home
Yodelayhee!
It's just a place where losers roam
Yodelayhee!
But man, I miss the pier in the summertime
And I do miss Alice in the Sky

Alice in the Sky
I do miss Alice in the Sky
Aye aye aye aye aye...

I'll never go back, back to my impulse
I'll never prioritize that beast
She chewed me spit me threw me up
and she hung me out to dry
Sipping from the bottles in her streets

Well, I won't lay my head down in Muskegon
Anywhere else will I find rest
I'll make my bed in foxholes
and I'll walk the earth like Cain
Staying far away from all that I detest

Yodelayhee!
That place is not my home
Yodelayhee!
It's just a place where losers roam
Yodelayhee!
But man, I miss the pier in the summertime....

Yodelayhee!
That place is not my home
Yodelayhee!
It's just a place where losers roam
Yodelayhee!
But man, I miss the pier in the summertime
And I do miss Alice in the Sky

Alice in the Sky
I do miss Alice in the Sky
Alice in the
Track Name: Home To You
One more day, one more dollar
Only One. Makes me wanna holler
Marvin Gaye sings me home to you

He was right all along
At least that time when he penned that song
Inner City, inner pity blues

Potholes line the light of day
Dusk settles in a shaded hue
Driving home to you
Home to you
Driving home to you
Mmhmm.

Punch that clock
Rich man shakedown
Hire – no hire, pay but no stay
Temp nightmare breaks our backs like Bane

He made winter in his heart
He a Keeper for his gain
All he wants is to suck out everything

He’d suck the marrow from our bones
But we’ve got a castle where he can’t roam
And it’s home to you
Home to you
It’s home to you
Mmhmm.

Potholes line the light of day
Dusk settles in a shaded hue
It’s home to you
Driving home to you
Home to you
Mmhmm.

You.
Mmhmm.
You.
Mmhmm.
You.
