Track Name: Mayday
You radiate
While I conjugate
Verbs of disaster
Shouting to the rafters

Mayday
I'm crashing down

I work the angles
To try to untangle
A wealth of information
That leads to frustration

Mayday
I'm crashing down

I part the curtains
To see if it is certain
That you are not out there
Creeping up the back stairs

Mayday
I'm crashing down
Track Name: Popular Russians
Popular Russians from a Cold War magazine
Ghosts of the grey waitin on the social scene
Oaths tumble from their mouths like dreams
Yawns curl serious softly into a scream

What’s good for you makes me wanna wander
To mountains on fire tumbling to the water

A secret sub at periscope depth
Waits for the signal to finally rest
A broken toy buried at the bottom of a pit
Our new beginning trashed in starts and fits

She took my hand and we broke for the border
Pushing away a brilliant new order

Investigations
Abbreviations
Exultations
Defenestrations
Track Name: Citadel of the Plaines
Monday
Word came
The man has gone away

Tuesday
Driving rain
Lightning points my way

Prairie calling my name
Citadel of the plains
I’m going home today

Thursday
Skyline
Pierce the sky, carve the clouds

Friday
Bloodline
Wrapped inside a burial shroud

Prairie calling my name
Citadel of the plains
I’m going home today

Blood that flows in me
Father said he could see
Makes me the man he knew I could be

Sunday
Wake up
In the place I call home
Track Name: Go Home, Sally Mercy
Go home, Sally Mercy
The boy isn't worth it
He might be pretty
But he's no fun
For a girl like you

Go home, Sally Mercy
There's more for you learn
Like reading a man's palm
Or faking concern
From a girl like you

Go home, Sally Mercy
Stop flashing that smile
Breaking the boys hearts
With innocence and guile
Of a girl like you

Go home, Sally Mercy
Let me help with your coat
What's been ailing them
There is no cure and no antidote
For a girl like you
Track Name: Saint Stephanie and the Stones
Ferry town
Lights never seem as bright
As those on TV

Hearing the horn
As the boat goes again
Leaving you to be
Sitting there in your room

Turn it up
As worn a record as you have
St Stephanie and the Stones

To a degree
Can't say it's so bad
Lots have it worse

But you want to see
The sidewalks of London
With a Carnaby purse
For now you just close your eyes

Turn it up
As worn a record as you have
St Stephanie and the Stones

The music takes you where you can't go
Cheers you up when you get low
Mick and Keith can only do so much
When someone feels so out of touch

Stephanie
Everyone has a future
Beyond the grooves
Of Exile on Main Street

Turn it up
As worn a record as you have
St Stephanie and the Stones
Track Name: Zero Confidence Level
You're answering my questions with riddles and rhymes
And don't think that I'm worth too much of your time
I should have seen I was getting the sign
Cuz now you got me feeling like I'm committing a crime

Zero confidence level
Nothing much to say
Zero confidence level
Lonely at the end of the day

I'm waiting for you to smile at me
Something that hits me like a reveille
A glance that I think I see
The flicker in your eyes was from the corner TV

Zero confidence level
Nothing much to say
Zero confidence level
Lonely at the end of the day

Won't talk won't speak all unheard
Not the guy who wins the girl
Quietly here absorbed in my drink
While you're leaving me here with my thoughts in the sink

Zero confidence level
Nothing much to say
Zero confidence level
Lonely at the end of the day
Track Name: Pictures of Lucy
Pictures of Lucy I thumb through in a motel room
Relics of the ancient past never thought they'd come to me so soon
All the trouble I have caused and seen and done never slowed me down
Just another broken heart to bury in the dirt when I up and leave town

I am the one with no connection
I am the one who threw the stone
The only thing that keeps me honest
Pictures of Lucy will haunt me till I'm gone

Passing the time flipping through a battered box of memories
Faces I remember some of them I would not rather see
Walking up to me to say hello and ask me if I'm doing well
The lying smile on my face disguises what it is I'll never tell

I am the one with no commitment
I'm the one who tore the tome
The only thing that keeps me honest
Pictures of Lucy will haunt me till I'm gone

She told me I never did nothin' wrong
She was biding time till someone new came along
But all the ways I try to hold her when I dream
Pictures of Lucy are never what they seem

Words that keep echoing things I wish that I had never said
Replayed through my memory something else I could've done instead
Never been the kind of man to take the time to stop and kneel and pray
Just sin for me to tell my maker when I reach my judgement day

I am the one who needs conversion
I am the one who lost his soul
The only thing that keeps me honest
Pictures of Lucy will haunt till I'm gone

I am the one with no connection
I am the one who threw the stone
The only thing that keeps me honest
Pictures of Lucy will haunt me till I'm gone
Track Name: Sweetest Thing
Something's here
Something's there
Sometimes I don't even care

Work the day
Work the night
I can't stop till I get it right

People come
People go
All I got is rock n roll

But you're the one
You're the star
With you here I'll go far

Cuz you
You are the sweetest thing
You are the sweetest thing to me

Seeing black
Seeing blue
Dreaming of the things you do

What's the deal
What's the buzz
I'm all in just because

You
You are the sweetest thing
You are the sweetest thing to me

Pushing in
Pushing out
All my chips without a doubt

Winning here
Losing there
It's won't matter if your there

Cuz you
You are the sweetest thing
You are the sweetest thing to me
Track Name: Hurry Up, Girl
Down on the floor
Standing alone
The lights are turning low
They're closing the doors

Hurry up, girl
Hurry up, girl
it's the start of the show

Tell me that you care
Don't give me a scare
I'll send up a prayer
In hope that you're there

Hurry up, girl
Hurry up, girl
it's the start of the show

Once upon a time
You were proud to say you're mine
At the scene of the crime
Things just didn't work out so fine

Down on the floor
Standing alone
Hurry up, girl
Hurry up, girl
it's the start of the show
Track Name: Rock It Away
bright lights
they're bringing down the night
the kids just wanna fight
cuz they've been feeling tight

meetin in the bars
runnin between the cars
the velvet ropes dont get them far
because they aint the right kind of stars

rock it away
rock it away

he's drinking gasoline
feeling low and mean
not some tired has-been
from this bitchy hipster scene

she's dancing there
whipping around her hair
not going to give a care
for any fool who dares

big man don't think he can lose
with a couple of lines and a bottle of booze
but in the end every one falls
and wakes up in the stalls

the city's hummin
but the kids are bummin
cuz their heads are drummin
and the cops are comin
Track Name: Fremont Street Blues
Money
On your mind
Losing
All the time
Cards get dealt down
Dont make sound
Winning
You have to play

Dealer
Smilin wide
Taken
For a ride
Chips they be gone
Sing same old song
Busted
Going broke

Sing the Fremont Street Blues
Dusty suit and cheap shoes
Sing the Fremont Street Blues

Feelin
Heart attack
Down to
Your last stack
ATM card
Won’t get you far
Cash
Is all they take

Pawning
Your father's watch
Drinking
Cheap ass scotch
Think you can stand
Another hand
Desperate
To double down

Sing the Fremont Street Blues
Dusty suit and cheap shoes
Sing the Fremont Street Blues

Thought the breaks were finally going your way
Rollinl hot dice at Mandalay Bay
But it’s another morning at Binions for you

Comped
Breakfast bar
No gas
For your car
How can you stay
Hitch back to LA
Vegas
Breaks your heart

Sing the Fremont Street Blues
Dusty suit and cheap shoes
Sing the Fremont Street Blues
