Track Name: My Own Two Feet
I have a purpose its just eluding me
And I know I've got my own two feet
Upon which I will stand up firm and tall
It's just going to take me awhile
To get to where I want to be in this world
To get to where I want to be with you girl
So I will stack the wood to keep me warm
But a slave to them I am no more
I have set myself free
And this is what it's what I need
But you pull at me with the consistency
Of the rising sun
And I do not know what is is I have done
And I do not trust anyone
My story just begun
Would you ever listen to what I say
Because you'd know I truly care about the way
You feel you feel in all of this
I know you feel I have been remiss
But open your pretty little eyes
There have been no lies
Between you and I
You have what no one else can
You have my future I am sorry I can't give you my past
So hold my hand
And wait for me to find my own to feet and stand
There will be days you lose faith in me
And there will be times we face misery
I will come home liquored up and stoned
And leave you there feeling all alone
But you can trust I will make it right in the end
There is reward for those nights you cried in bed
And you really are my best good friend
And I will love I am going to love you I will love you
Everyday
Track Name: One For Me
What do you do when your mistress just won't do it for you anymore
And what do you do when the man stole all of hash and smoked it to his brain
What do you do when you realize you will never be the same
Well drink one for me
And drink one for Montana
Where my man Tanner lives on land and
Does what he can as I understand
But any man who prattles about always and forever must not foresee any sort of change
And I feel so sorry for him
I hope he pulls his blanket right over his head while I fuck it up real big
So what do you do when your mistress just won't do it for you anymore
And what do you do when the man stole all of your hash and smoked it to his brain
What do you do when you realize you'll never be the same
Well drink one for me cause I still am naive enough to believe
That I can cut records and sing
And make enough money to eat
Track Name: Another Dead Mick
We kill ourselves and we know it
We know the facts and we still smoke it
We see our friends die but we drink it
I believe these words but I know
Not after long I will end up at the bottom of another cup
Or on the wet end of a doob
I do what I choose and I choose what I do
I held you and could you have even seen me through
And don't bury me when I die
You just burn me up and point me to the sky
I am another dead mick
with a tired old shtick
And a worn out gray suit
One pair of brown leather boots and nothing to lose
So remember me as I am now
Not as I was or how I will be
Not how I could have been
Cause my dear friends there is no moment quite like this one
So not today you just let me stay here for awhile
No not today
Track Name: I Told You
Sweet little baby girl I told you not to expect the world
Of me and I did not lie
I've been feeling kind of restless and waking up stressed
And it's not like I really sleep at night
But that's just one little battle I ain't ready to fight
And it's one look I ain't ready to see
In my own eyes I think you are just fine so tonight lets act like its alright well alright
Sweet little baby girl there was never any question in what I told you being true
Its just all those things I said well they might have meant just a little more to you
But I would say that you were never used
You were there and I was too
And there is not one thing I will do
Tonight I will be moving on well alright
Sweet little baby girl I told you not to expect the world
Of me and I did not lie
I've been feeling kind of restless and waking up stressed
And it's not like I really sleep at night
Track Name: The Lucky One
She said, if I kissed you as much as John Jameson do
Well I would be the lucky one and you would be
sick of my tongue
If I planted one flower every time you took a drag
Well you'd have a garden so big you could not help but brag about it to someone
I looked back through her and I did not say one single word
I just called up my friends and got all sorts of fucked up again
She said boy you don't know what you'd be if you could
Just put down that Irish whiskey we could shave your face up real clean and you could live with me
We'll find you a steady job where you can go everyday
and if forty years you will earn yourself a real firm hand shake
But I said no thank you mam you can pry the drink from my cold hand
As I lay still center stage at my piano grand
Cause I was meant to roam and I don't want a home so don't offer me one cause I will say no
Track Name: To See Yourself Now
Five years ago you were something
And I will be damned but you're nothing
I saw you in the bar we started talking
About how five years ago was something
And when I slid your blouse right over your head
And I saw your milky white breast
I realized right then all you are is one soul
Some bones and some flesh
Five years ago if I saw them I would have just stopped breathing
Five years ago if this happened it would of been the talk of the season
Now your emptiness if frightens me
You are so clearly yearning
For anyone or anything to remind you of how you felt back then
And I left before you got back to bed
Honey put yourself in my shoes you wouldn't stay if I'd said that to you
You dream-pt a fantasy full of beaches and palm trees
And when we got there the mosquitoes bit too hard
You'll never be happy no matter where you are
Can't you see how time changes a man
You swore you'd never be one of them
Well it is too late my friend
Track Name: You Will Never Know
Don't try and make sense of my life please
Just because you walk down a path set by society
You've got your diploma and your wife to be
So stop wishing your life onto me
There are a thousand beaches
And a thousand roads
That I am going to walk down
And you will never know
