Track Name: Blockbuster
Pretty blonde said strike it west
You can wow them with
A killer screen test
Taste the spice she kept under her dress
Left him shaking like
A shaman on a vision quest

Hey blockbuster
Losing your luster
Hey blockbuster
Shoot me into outer space

She asked if he had any dreams
Breaking out of here
Taking it to extremes
Maybe something to the other side
Of prairie skies
To oceans far and wide

Hey blockbuster
Losing your luster
Hey blockbuster
Shoot me into outer space

Sometimes sitting by the pond
Nobody else around
Aspirations lost daydreams found
Snatched away with hardly a sound

Beer in hand looking at the stars
She’s at his side
On the hood of his car
Arm around her shoulder holding tight
Everything’s an afterthought
See the stars but can’t see the light

Hey blockbuster
All that you can muster
Hey blockbuster
Shoot me into outer space

Hey blockbuster
Losing your luster
Hey blockbuster
Shoot me into outer space
Track Name: Small Town Scene
I'm not
Waiting for a fast train
I'm not
Wasting another day
I'm not
Waiting for the last train
I'm not
Wasting another day

The cold winds of Kankakee
They aren't blowing me out of town
I still got something to say
My piano's in the street
Eviction isn't bringing me down
I still got a song to play

I'm not
Waiting for a fast train
I'm not
Wasting another day
I'm not
Waiting for the last train
I'm not
Wasting another day

Let's have a drink at Richie's Roost
Before they bar the doors
And close the place for good
We can toast our failed futures
While we hoist another Coors
And carve our names in the wood

I'm not
Waiting for a fast train
I'm not
Wasting another day
I'm not
Waiting for the last train
I'm not
Wasting another day

Future always come so fast
The past is never meant to last
You could mean a lot to me
If you see past this small town scene
Track Name: Travellin' Bible Salesman
Traveling bible salesman
Keeping a corpse in the trunk
Gun under the seat
Careful who he meets
Strange things happen when you get drunk

Tell me can you see it
Tell me can you see in his eyes
Tell me can you see it
Tell me can you see through his lies

Basket full of Bibles
Try to pass them around
Missing some pages
About the rock of ages
Best to be leaving this town

Whiskey and women never done him any good
Makes him do the things he never should

Riverbank in the moonlight
Slide him into the drift
Who could tell the law
If nobody saw
Backroads always been a gift

Tell me can you see it
Tell me can you see in his eyes
Tell me can you see it
Tell me can you see through his lies
Track Name: When You Say
Wishes on a king bed (as I)
Listen to your words said (and you)
Say you hear my heartbeat (cuz I)
Feel I’m on the hot seat

Promises will ring true (and I’ll)
Never ever leave you (but the)
Worlds slide out of one ear (and then)
Suddenly you’re not here

Where do we go, in the face of the unknown?
Questions, answers, hypnotize
You don’t have to ask me why.

When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes

Running out the doorway (cuz you)
Never see it my way (but it’s)
Better than we once feared (and I)
Love it when you’re right here

Where do we go, in the face of the unknown?
Questions, answers, hypnotize
You don’t have to ask me why.

When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes
When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes

Love. Love. Love.
Love. Love. Love.

When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes

Now we are together (living)
Happily ever after (don’t you)
See now how it’s easy (if you)
Just learn to believe me.

Where do we go, in the face of the unknown?
Questions, answers, hypnotize
You don’t have to ask me why.

When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes
When you say goodbye, love is in your eyes
Track Name: Border Run
Crackling sound of the fire
Smoke stretch like a spire
Reaching up searching for God’s love
Nothing’s there waiting above

Border run
Border run

Sun burnin me like an oven
Memories all forgotten
I am here and you are waiting
Someplace else anticipating

Border run
Border run

The border lord is saying you are forsaken
All you have and are will be taken

Dust fillin my mouth
She waits eyes to the south

Border run
Border run
Track Name: John Lennon In California
Whiskey stings and cocaine burns
These two things always return
I escape the realm with methods pure and true
A morning too distant to come into view

Gravity is rotten business
When Netwon's laws finally hit us
And I am smiling through clenched teeth
Wondering where I might find relief

Watch me fall
Watch me fall
Watch me fall without you

Give me the gas and leave me your shoes
Can you help out a fool trying to pay his dues
Big uppers lead to even bigger downers
I'm a spectacle of lunacy for all the out of towners

Watch me fall
Watch me fall
Watch me fall without you

Getting lost in California
I am losing my mind
I can't see you smile in my memory
Searching for a handle that can finally remind
Where I come from
And what I am
Another pilgrim
In a pagan land

Burdened with troubles I can't comprehend
Left in the alley to fight and to fend
Supernatural spectres that scream in the night
Taunted with visions of wrongs never made right

Watch me fall
Watch me fall
Watch me fall without you
Track Name: Pretty Girls In White Cars
Pretty girls in white cars
Pretty girls in white cars
Cruising up and down the boulevard tonight

Pretty girls in white cars
Pretty girls in white cars
Looking perfect as a postcard tonight

Hanging out on the sidewalk
Timing the stoplight’s switch
Love lasts as long as sky rockets

Pretty girls in white cars
Pretty girls in white cars
Cruising up and down the boulevard tonight

Pretty girls in white cars
Pretty girls in white cars
Looking perfect as a postcard tonight

Heading out on a Friday night
Radio playing our summer song
Love lasts as long as the next stoplight

Just another girl
Track Name: Kathy's Eyes
Kathy has blue eyes but she don't have the blues
Sashaying down the street in her high heel shoes
Holding her coat cuz the weather's turning warm
Leavin smiles behind her like stars being born

Ooooooh Kathy's eyes
Ooooooh Kathy's eyes
Ooooooh

Kathy smiles and turns her face up towards the sun
She's done with the doing of things that she had to get done
Sipping her coffee with a straw so she dont stain her teeth
Lounge on the bench by the fountain like a goddess in relief

Ooooooh Kathy's eyes
Ooooooh Kathy's eyes
Ooooooh

Kathy's eyes
Look to me with true love's surprise
Could it really be
That Kathy sees me as Kathy's prize? (That Kathy sees me as Kathy's prize?)

Kathy hopes the showers stay away
She's planning to meet up with me at the end of her day
Thinking bout the kisses that she wishes to put on my lips
Blushing at the thought of my hands resting on her hips

Ooooooh Kathy's eyes
Ooooooh Kathy's eyes
Ooooooh Kathy's eyes
Ooooooh
Track Name: Jailhouse Bars
The jailhouse doors are up locked tight
And won't open anytime soon
All the shit I never did right
Left us playing so out of tune

On the run
But caught again
Jailhouse bars
Never bend

Footsteps echo in the dark
I can barely see the wall
Shadows drift and dance so stark
Whisper fates like some secret call

On the run
But caught again
Jailhouse bars
Never bend

This cell is all I have to show
Leaving you was my own doing
For a fool who just could not grow
You wound up winning and leaving me losing

Ran but didn't ponder where
Felt like it was the right thing to do
Surprised to learn how much I cared
Thinking I could find someone better than you

On the run
But caught again
Jailhouse bars
Never bend
Track Name: American Radio
American radio in the heartland
Screaming of coming destruction

American Radio……American Radio

American radio is a wasteland
Ignorance fills the gaps to connection

American Radio……American Radio

Dials turn it’s all the same
Who done wrong, they’re to blame
Black or brown it’s all the same
It’s all too much

American radio for the homeland
Hypocrites waiting on the resurrection

American Radio……American Radio
