Track Name: Ride or Die
visions getting heavy
things aint been the same
ever since that medicine man
shot his arrow in my vein
born to lose just as sure as my name
but i always keep on riding
til my dying day

thunder up in heaven lightning under ground
spirit gets to shaking
every time i hear that sound
born to move just as sure as my name
be dancing til the daylight on my dying day

god way up in heaven show me a good sign
all this hesitation complicates my mind
born to gamble all i need's a little luck
more than i can handle but things are looking up
born to lose just as sure as my name
but i always keep on riding
til my dying day

i can hear you singing
i can hear your voice
enough with conversation
make a joyful noise

just me and you
one and of the same
so keep on praying mama
til my dying day

clouds roll in heavy riding winds of change
its high time for making moves toward a better day
born to choose just as sure as my name
but i always keep on riding
til my dying day
Track Name: Up Top Baby
i wanna make it to the morning light
first i gotta make it through the night
tell you one thing i'ma put up a fight

heart's racing and my minds on fire
tight walking on a telephone wire
keep talking gonna push me over

back's breaking on the weight of the world
radio plays the rock n roll
trade it all for a piece of the gold
just a little bit of gold

hey people now listen to me
you and me and the whiskey makes three
come on over we'll be making a scene
making the scene

lock the windows and close up the doors
kicking sawdust all over the floor
shake your bones straight down to the core

>>> I'm up top baby and i'm below
>>> i'm up top baby, baby hello
>>> in the raindrops baby let the hyacinth grow
>>> i'm up top baby baby hello
Track Name: Orpheus Does The Ghost Dance
if you don’t like my peaches, please don’t shake my tree
love to make you wild little girl
lemme see those teeth
you wound up on the wrong side, dark end of the track
take my hand let’s run away
no sense looking back
i turn to stone and crumble into sand
oh my word, just a pile of dirt
falling through your hand

i rolled and i tumbled, cried the whole night long
woke up in the morning, saw that you were gone
you wound up on the wrong side, dark end of the track
take my hand i’m going home
no sense looking back
i turn to stone and crumble into sand
without your love
just a pile of dirt falling through your hand

for forty days and forty nights i searched the night in vain
the ghosts were dancing in the old town square
and made me feel insane
they told me you don’t love me
sure don’t stand a chance
i turned around and there you were
asking me to dance
i turn to stone and crumble into sand
oh my word, just a pile of dirt
falling through your hands

grabbed up my old guitar
and played a heartfelt tune
the ghost king laughed and danced away
under the crimson moon
he let me by, i took my chance
for to steal you back
i took your hand, we ran away
but when i turned my back

i turned to stone and crumbled into sand
oh my word just a pile of dirt slipping though your hands

Track Name: Love Song
i went from riches to rags
now i’m back on top
drinkin’ champagne outta rusted can of soda pop
life is hard but it’s a crazy scene
i may crash and burn
i’m a flyin’ machine

coulda been a killer
i could be dead
shoulda learned violin instead
life is a dream when you’re on your own
i’m a real high flyer
i’m a rollin’ stone

woke up this morning in a physical dream
mirror in the hall ain’t what it seems
life is strange but it’s hard to tell
look into my eyes
i can see quite well

» you take my pain away
» fallin’ in love every night and day
» you’re the one, you’re my best friend
» gotta love me until the end
» take me outta my mind
» put me in a trance
» feel in like my hearts on fire
» burnin wild with the flames of sweet romance

coulda been a scientist
coulda done much more than this
shit gets weird when you look to close
think i’ll take my chances as a rollin’ stone

Track Name: Death Sex & Taxes
death and sex and taxes
burning down the axels to the bone
sacred stones take my body home
tell me where I'm wrong
work the dirt like a dog without his bone
through the dusk and dawn
aint no use in asking
answers flow just like molasses down the road

>> lightning from the cannons reaching straight up into heaven and i let my spirit back into the sun can't go on forever one more mile and ill be there in the meantime ill just try to play along

death and sex and taxes
people crying in their mansions aint no home
tv sets and actresses
im sleeping on a mattress by the road
light that book of matches
let them burn it all to ashes
if they want

>> lightning from the cannons reaching straight up into heaven and i let my spirit back into the sun can't go on forever one more mile and ill be there in the meantime ill just try to play along

death and sex and taxes
burning down the axels to the bone
sacred stones take my body home
show me where I'm from
Track Name: Starry Eyes
i see you in your new cadillac now baby
sitting back with your feet on the dash and your shades on
stone black
listen baby take me for a drive
city lights in our starry eyes

i see you when you're driving in style now baby
gold and black with the glitters and flashes like moonbeams
when you crash
like a freight train running down the line
headlights in our starry eyes

let me take you down to the heart of town
wheels of fortune roll while we're spinning around
Track Name: White Horses
white horses on a hillside
take me away
riding away to the place that i'm going to
flying away to a city by a river
by which i stand and dream
falling away
all of the mountains crumble
into my hand
standing alone on a hillside
all i see
white horses
take me away
