45


shes lookin out the window while hes sleepin in the bed
a buckshot got him now his bed sheets are red
got to find a doctor to pull out the lead
otherwise her man will soon be dead

she knows that there a comin to take away her man
they said he put his saddle on another mans brand
she knows that he cant shoot a gun he can barely stand
and she aint gona let them get away with what they planned

shes standin in the moonlight
with a 45 smokin in her hand
they rode in at midnight headin in to take away her man
so she stands in the moonlight
with a 45 smokin in her hand

she knows that they're all tellin lies she finds his old gun
they'll go away and make a life when this all is done
she knows that theres no givin up once its all begun
shes got to catch them by surprise when its five to one

she tells them that hes gone she thinks he might be dead
but hes aimin through the window with a shotgun in his bed
she reaches down into her dress and fires off the lead
the shotgun blasts the glass away and now the men are dead

shes standin in the moonlight
with a 45 smokin in her hand
they rode in at midnight headin in to take away her man
so shes standin in the moonlight
with a 45 smokin in her hand

the moon is out lihgtin up everything they'd done
he yells out through the window i love you but its time to run
she said i did this all for you to show you im the one
that you can trust to be at your side until kingdom come

he looked out the window at the men that had died
he felt no remorse for the men that had lied
and came to his home to try and take his life
he stared out the window with love in his eyes

shes standin in the moonlight
with a 45 smokin in her hand
they rode in at midnight headin in to take away her man
shes standin in the moonlight
with a 45 smokin in her hand
they rode in at midnight headin in to take away her man
so she stands in the moonlight
with a 45 smokin in her hand







 
4th Of July


pack it down and send it straight
is it luck or is it fate
live your life bound in chains
leave your body filled with shame

some will come accross the sea
wherin' red and soon they'll be
marchin in with battle cries
fightin dyin for the 4th of july
fightin dyin for the 4th of july

the king is dead in our heads
soon these chains we will shed
we told them no one has to die
but were fightin dyin for the 4th of july

one by land two by sea
grab your guns and follow me
peace is somethin that we tried
now were fightin dyin for the 4th of july
fightin dyin for the 4th of july

sew a flag and write a song
as the soldiers march along
fireworks will light the sky
fightin dyin for the 4th of july

men march in and tell you how
to live your life and make you bow
now they run and that is why
we're fightin dyin for the 4th of july
fightin dyin for the 4th of july

 
1910


in 1910 i worked aboard a ship
but the ship is now gone at the bottom of the sea it sits
most of these men are wanted by somebodies law
with hard work and whiskey far away lands we saw

the only thing i know
they'll always come and go
but i never know them long enough to know

sittin in the leaves of a palm is where ill be
lookin down on the world sittin with the seaguls to see
past 10 weeks i think 3 ships went by
with fire and smoke and wavin and a screamin i tried

the only thing i know
they'll always come and go
but i never know them long enough to know

im trapped by water but i cant find nothin to drink
i wonder if im the only one that didn't sink
i try to stay alive eatin berries and bugs i find
ive lost a lot of weight and i think i mighta lost my mind

the only thing i know
they'll always come and go
but i never know them long enough to know

Ain't Gona Ride That Train


I'm tired of breaking my back
for a company that don't love me
they'd just as soon dump my body in the sea
so I'm walking out today
they can mail me my pay
cause i ain't gona ride that train no more

sittin in a university
the teacher is preachin to me
i thought i came here to learn how to multiply
but hes tellin me that god is dead
and hes tellin me how to vote
so i ain't gona ride that train no more

my womans the meanest thing
she wants a bigger rock for her ring
so i went outside and dug up the biggest rock i could find
then i threw it through the window of her car
and then i threw her out the door
cause i ain't gona ride that train no more

i sold everything i owned
i hopped a train destination unknown
I'm far away from woman that want my gold
no boss is gona take my soul
no teachers gona wash my brain
I'm gona ride this train until i die
I'm gona ride this train until i die

All The LIttle Planets


as he flys through the outer space
seems to be spinning a trace
like an animal that leaves a path
creatures of habit could feel the rath
from painting a picture a little too clear
like a man with rifle aiming for a dear
maybe hes seen us but we've not seen him
though words have been told of saucers that spin
some have taken to glue and lights 
together they show the crudeness of fright
it doesnt take much to widen the eyes
with the subject of green men flying in the skies
beems of light shot from a gun
some bring death while others just stun
the eerie whistle from the metal bird
in the split of a second from clear to blurred
blasting through the stars by the sun and moon
to the land of oz in a fresh baloon
the relaxing pulse of the radio sounds
from the beacon that floats above sleeping towns
static is coming from a mans garage
desperately hoping it was more than a mirage 
all the little planets sitting high up above
we'll still wonder if its danger or its love

Alone With You


sometimes when i sit in my room
all i can do is think of you
think of the things i cant wait to do
and i know that you do the same
sometimes when i leigh in my bed
sleep cant be found with you in my head
ill toss and turn all through the night
cause i cant wait to be

alone with you
and you alone with me
so we can be everything we can be

when im at school taking a test
i can't put my thoughts to a rest
i see your face your hair and your eyes
and i know that you do the same
your locker i meet you out in the hall
a heart with our names carved in the wall
i dream of tonight when you will be mine
cause i cant wait to be

alone with you
and you alone with me
so we can be everything we can be

knock on your door and ring on the bell
your father is there i know he can tell
the only thing on my mind is you
and he knows you feel the same
stands by the fire puffing his pipe
i know by his eyes he'll wait up tonight
i hurry goodbyes and head to the car
cause i cant wait to be

alone with you
and you alone with me
so we can be everything we can beq
Always Singin The Blues


lay me down
cause i don't need to be awake no more today
been givin as much as i can take

no more pain
been drinkin away the memories of my yesterdays
and now I've lost who i used to be

tell me my luck will change tomorrow
let me start it all brand new
if you took a walk on e day in my shoes
you'd know why I'm always singin the blues

hello my friend
are you here to love me or hurt me again
but how will i ever know the truth

take my hand
is what you said to me when i fell for you
but i can't fall down that hard again

tell me my luck will change tomorrow
let me start it all brand new
if you took a walk on e day in my shoes
you'd know why I'm always singin the blues

goodbye my friend
i guess i shoulda known that you'd do it again
but now I'm here left spinnin in my head

goodnight again
cause i don't need to be awake no more today
been givin as much as i can take

tell me my luck will change tomorrow
let me start it all brand new
if you took a walk on e day in my shoes
you'd know why I'm always singin the blues
you'd know why I'm always singin the blues
you'd see why I'm always singin the blues
Another One Like Me


he left his woman today
when he turned round to wave
she was yellin his way
and he heard her say

you can sail across the sea
you can look up in the sky
you can look up in the trees
but your never gona find another one like me

he lost his job today
and he collected his pay
as he lit the gasoline
someone heard him say

you can sail across the sea
you can look up in the sky
you can look up in the trees
but your never gona find another one like me

with a rope around his neck
they sentenced him to death
on your last day
do you have anything to say

you can sail across the sea
you can look up in the sky
you can look up in the trees
but your never gona find another one like me

 
Army Of Queens (The Factory)

cloned soldiers hide
in masks of self dinsdane
they are all the same
in search of wealth and fame
marching one by one
hoping that they'll see
what they really need
inside of you and me

listen to the sound
of the factory machines
they are building one by one
an army
an army of queens

they live in the night
preditors and prey
swimming through the room
hungry for a stray
they will never need
too much more than gold
they can always buy
a friend to love and hold

listen to the sound
of the factory machines
they are building one by one
an army
an army of queens
