On the Lam 

Woke Up in a Black Hole 

10 Stories Deep 

This Drug Store Poison's Gonna be

the death of me well

Turned a blind eye to the azure sky 

Lost time is a heavy price children 

Can I get to heaven 

Riding the Blinds

no slack from the Beezlebub tounge 

in the abyss

Honeycombs in the catacombs 

queens cold kiss

Turned a blind eye to the brilliant sky 

Lost time is a heavy price children 

Can I get to heaven 

Riding the Blinds

Ol Breakman's eyes saw the Devil in Me

Said you can run you can run 

But you'll never be free

Turned a blind eye to the shallow sky 

Lost time is a heavy price children 

Can I get to heaven 

Riding the Blinds

Caught a glimpse of the promised land 

Some Walk on Water 

Scurry thru days nothing to show 

Hopin to find redemption at a stones throw 

Exhausted and beaten stripped of their will

Some walk on water some are grist for the mill

Man on TV is spouting out obscenities 

Some bring healing some bring disease 

Forget Mother Nature go ahead and drill 

Some walk on Water Some just watch it spill 

For so long now I thought we felt off the path 

Some strange state of suspended animation 

Now I see we can get it right back 

Drop the needle on the next rotation…

Takin collections to live on high

Spreading their Gospel  By and by 

All the while for the faithful Heaven’s locked away  

Some walk on water some just pay the bill 

TUPELO 

Went to the station see my baby go 

God knows what train I’ll never know 

Hey now baby why you treat me so mean 

 

Well you got me on the killing floor 

And I don’t wanna be here no more 

I’ve been down on the ground so long 

Because the one I really want is gone 

 

Novembers’ rent one day late 

Mean ol Land lord done raise the rate 

Hey now baby why you treat me so mean 

 

Well you got me on the killing floor 

And I don’t wanna be here no more 

I’ve been down on the ground so long 

Because the one I really want is gone

Impossible Game 

The Slumber pulled down the wool right over my eyes

I can’t tell one truth from my self-inflicted lies 

Break down the levee thaw the river that’s within 

Quit your shadowboxing making enemies of your friends 

Between the moving windows of your inner clarity  

Your Deprived of all senses Won’t see the forrest for the trees

You and me are the same in this Impossible Game 

Well I hope I don’t drown in the things I’ve come to love 

I’m gonna travel  light now these chains I’ll rise above 

Gather what you need now burn the ships down at the shore 

Now I’m committed no turning back anymore 

Between the moving windows of your inner clarity  

Your Deprived of all senses Won’t see the forrest for the trees

You and me are the same in this Impossible Game 

Well I’m standing in between the needle and the groove 

I wish ol Bobby Fisher would show me the next move 

I am standing in between the crossroads in a dream 

The path less taken is the one that’s calling me 

Between the moving windows of your inner clarity  

Your Deprived of all senses Won’t see the forrest for the trees

You and me are the same in this Impossible Game 

 

Gotta Go Through It

Might be in an opium din in Shang-hi 

Might be up in a Chicago High Rise 

Might be on a distant shore 

Or way down on the killing floor  

One things for sure 

You Gotta Go thru it 

Well you better find your grace and grit 

Cause one things for sure you Gotta go thru it 

Might be princess of Bolivia 

Might be the madcap of Oblivion 

Might be on the lam from the police 

Fighting a war in the middle east 

One things for sure You Got to Go Thru It

Gotta Go thru it 

Well you better find your grace and grit 

Cause one things for sure you Gotta go thru it  

Might be in the desert with Don Juan 

Might be the Pimp of Babylon 

Might be working on a chain gang 

or bagging groceries it's all the same 

One things for sure You Got to Go Thru It

Gotta Go thru it 

Well you better find your grace and grit 

Cause one things for sure you Gotta go thru it  

 

Don't Let the Darkness

We share this pain 

Our blues are one in the same 

You’re not alone 

I face this too on my own 

Don’t let the darkness 

Cover your eyes 

And steal your time 

All I hope is that you find your way 

Back to the light 

The light of day 

dont let the darkness 

Cover your eyes 

And steal your time 

I know you feel wrapped up in worries and blues 

You paid your tolls and paid your dues 

Sometimes their judgements will feel justified 

Just know I know who you are and I’m on your side 

My brain rages in the night 

Turn this fear to fight 

There’s more than one way out 

The rains of mercy will wash this drought 

Dont let the darkness 

Cover your eyes 

And steal your time
