FUBAR 03:46
Don't flip your wig Don't snap your cap You been to the brink and back Tryin' to lost those hounds That've been dogging you around All your pushin' and your shovin' Has got you nowhere till now Why not give up that fight Let the dust settle Things will turn out just right So you pulled a Houdini did ya? I hear you jumped ship You been playin' tag with John Law Since you copped their bloodhound tip Into the void you tumble with nothin' to break your fall Trippin'on trash well you stumble While thunder and lightening squalls That big old bean is blazing in the sky They put on a good one for ya Time to kick back and smile Watch all those little dead soldiers line up all pretty in a row

Dirty Wings 04:20
Only fools rush in Where others fear to follow 'T ain't no sin now babe Take a sip and swallow Ebony, Ivory Where does the music go Just say yes Don't make me guess Throw this dog a bone Need some food for thought To get that dreambox tickin' Got some lowdown blues That need some lickin' Ebony, Ivory Where does the music go Just say yes Don't make me guess Throw this dog a bone We're all shufflin' Down that lonesome road We're all scufflin' Let's get together Lay down that load Silver moon is full And the wolves are howling I'm all over this town Like a tomcat prowlin' Ebony, Ivory Where does the music go Just say yes Don't make me guess Throw this dog a bone We're all shufflin' Down that lonesome road We're all scufflin' Let's get together Lay down that load Well my halo's bent And a little tarnished Got my dirty wings Girl you seem astonished Ebony, Ivory Where does the music go Just say yes Don't make me guess Throw this dog a bone

Gumbo Boogie 04:03
All the hipsters down on the strip They don't hold back into the evening they rip They play to win in this two bit penny arcade They're packing pistols Brandishing their blades Taking sips of dutch courage to boot Holding the folding Packing the loot I bet it all on 28 red The wheel is spinning Put this monkey to bed Mean on the scene Wearing the green So we danced until we fell down High as lightening Playing the clown But there's another side you don't wanna see I'm a killer when the fire rises in me So don't you jive me with that voodoo Smoke and mirrors and that juju I can see through that hullabaloo Give me a lesson in confessin' Or I swear boy You better pray Wake ém up The quick and the dead Shake this town Knock ém all out of bed I raise my collar My hackles they rise I'm a snake with a switchblade And I'm ready to strike Come out blazing in a hail of lead

Po' boy 04:41
I wake up every morning Not a penny to my name People mock and scorn me But I don't care to blame Help fill the pocket of a poor boy now Just a little something for a humble soul Where ever I lay my hat down You could say that is my home I don't want for nothin' I'm free and I can roam Help fill the pocket of a poor boy now Just a little something for a humble soul Sometimes this world is cold People mean and angry I won't ever fold Just take it day by day And continue on my way.

In the beginning I was meek Lost and confused Small and weak You done hooded me You done voodooed me into believing I was less than I am But now I found me spirirt Gonna get off my rump and live it. And there's nothing you can say or doo to stop me now Fire in the hole Demon shovel coal Out of the ashes I come flying They broke their wheels on my hide Tell no lies I refuse to die Fire in the hole Demon shovel coal Forging dreams in clouds of steam Our lives are crashing, intertwining I can hear those smoke stack whinin' You know I worry for you child Going around town Putting out those bad juju vibes Who do you think you're fooling? Who do you think you're schooling? Because there's some beasts you just can't tame And one of these days the tigers of wrath are gonna come and bite ya

Mischief 04:07
I'm the king of all the liars Paint them all with gold I'm the salesman You're the buyers Paying with your souls Good and bad they've all succumbed To my wreckless charms Sell your kingdoms all for dust Come into my arms Bought and sold Your senses five Have led you astray I'm the master of illusions Hold you in my sway Kings and Queens you had it all No you're beggars poor Temptation clings and clips your wings And you will fly no more Mischief Devil in me Shimmy like a monkey up a coconut tree Mischief Devil in you From your hat down to your shoes Mischief Devil in us Squabble and fight makin'lot's of fuss Mischief Everywhere Chaos and confusion messing up your hair Mischief Everyday Dancing in the shadows Watch the children play

I dig your hips babe Dig your boat You got me sweating now you sit back and gloat Well I'm a man of wisdom and note I got nuthin' to do but float I missed the eight ball Blew the deal Chasin' Aces now it's a steal A total whitewash can't clean me now But I'm gonna win your heart somehow Sin City nights Can't curb my appetites Sin City lights Lay in the gutter dig the stars so bright Sin City scenes Got my hustle now I got me dreams Sin City Blues Nothing to lose. I fell into a jug of gin Running my mouth Swindling my kin I sold out and jumped right in I'm gonna pick up big when the tide comes in Shifting and grifting Making waves My road to heaven is so nicely paid I don't know how to behave You can call me stupid I'll call me brave

I believe one of my virtues Is that I'm a stayer Didn't mean to hurt you babe You always knew I was a player Cold wind blowing Through me This vibe is grim Guess it's time to pack it all in And let sleeping dogs lie. We started star crossed and crazy At the business end of a blunderbuss Now we're just jaded And there's a shadow hanging over us The moon is a dagger There's frost on the pane The third act is over We're circling the drain And I can't hear nothing but this sad old refrain Let sleeping dogs lie Right under our noses The devil laid waste I trampled your roses You spat in my face And I remember the day It all went to hell In a hand basket There's no looking back I drink my regrets Head on down the track Let sleeping dogs lie.
