Track Name: Crying At All
But you wasn't crying at all

Sat me in the electric chair and flipped the switch
Why you gotta act like a high ridin' bitch
Now my hands are covered in your hairspray
Don't you got a lighter so I can burn this away
Took my heart down on the drag
Brought my guts back in a plastic bag

You said you wept when I took the fall
But you wasn't crying at all

Treat me like an asshole that just fell off the turnip truck
I ain't no young man but I still know how to fuck
You wanted me to suffer baby I'm suffering
nobody saw me standing in the sun while the sun was setting
Said you wanted another chance
How'd I know you just wanted another dance

You said you wept when I took the fall
But you wasn't crying at all

Now I got a girl she likes to hold my hand
She doesn't mind walking down the street with a crazy man
We get along just like a house on fire
I don't feel strung up with no piano wire
If I had those years again I just might take em back
But then again I woulda never got on the right track

You said you wept when I took the fall
But you wasn't crying at all
Track Name: Bring It Right
Bring it right down on the top
Don't forget to let it drop
Bring it right down on the top
Don't forget to let it drop

You get the beat in on the wim-wam
You got to get it as much as you can
First the lay down and the up on one
Then the backbeat on the number two son
Third the slide into a mellow groove
On to the four that'll make you move

Bring it right down on the top
Don't forget to let it drop
Bring it right down on the top
Don't forget to let it drop

You tap the steering wheel in your car
You tap that wheel no matter where you are
Radio beats are flying in the night
Factory funk makes you feel uptight

Got custom bass handwired treble
Got custom bass handwired treble
Got custom bass handwired treble
Got custom bass handwired treble

Bring it right down on the top
Don't forget to let it drop
Bring it right down on the top
Don't forget to let it drop

First the lay down and the up on one
Then the backbeat on the number two son
Third the slide into a mellow groove
On to the four that'll make you move

Got custom bass handwired treble
Got custom bass handwired treble
Got custom bass handwired treble
Got custom bass handwired treble

Bring it right down on the top
Don't forget to let it drop
Track Name: Limo Driver
What you got baby nobody can put down
Hang on to it mama til I come to your town
I'm gonna come along and put things right
Gimme all your lovin and I'll hold you tight
Wait on your porch til bout a half past twelve

I drive up in a limousine
I drive up in a limousine

I got the limousine til the morning light
I take you anywhere you wanna go tonight
I take you to a roadhouse to a bar and grill
Take you romantic dancing if you will
Don't worry what your friends say about me baby
I'm just a limo driver but I drive you crazy

I pull up in a limousine
I pull up in a limousine

Let me be your chauffeur honey honey
Let me be your chauffeur honey honey
Track Name: Rock Rock
She's got an amp that's powered by a super solar battery
She's wailin away on an epiphone flying v
She's singin the blues in a way that's new and strange
And all she's lookin for is a handful of loose change

She don't got a license to play out on the street
She's got a couple lookouts for the police on the beat
They always come a-runnin when they hear her play
They try so hard to catch her but she always gets away

She's gonna rock rock dont let it stop stop
Dont let the cop cop pick you up on the corner
Come on lets rock rock dont let it stop stop
Dont let the cop cop pick you up on the corner

Now she's on the stage playin for a 1000 fans
She's wailin on her guitar frontin an all girl rock n roll band
In the middle of the show she picks up that beat up ol flying v
She says lemme sing a song about how it used to be

Back when I didn't have a license to play out on the street
I had a couple lookouts for the police on the beat
They always came a-runnin when they heard me play
They tried real hard to catch me but I always got away

That's cause I rock rock don't let it stop stop
don't let the cop cop pick you up on the corner
Come on lets rock rock dont let it stop stop
Dont let the cop cop pick you up on the corner

Got me a policy to save me

Delusional
Sometimes I think Im a king
But I aint nothin oh I aint nothin

Delusional
Thinkin someone will put me in the spotlight
Delusional
So sad to think Im all alone
In this town oh in this town
Delusional
Hopefully I'll grow out of this affliction
Delusional
Someday my truth won't be no fiction
Delusional
Sometimes I look in the mirror and my back is turned
Turned away from me uh huh uh away from me

Track Name: Manitoba Is Indian Land
Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land

On the street bench another pair of junkie eyeballs
And there but for the grace of god
And maybe midnight wouldnt break the shoulders
If somebody had of spared the rod

Round every corner is just another trap
Behind my heartbeat is a fresh set of tracks
And the shadow wouldnt touch me
on the bottom of my feet
If I could just stay in the air

The rain washes over the streetlights reflection
But the streetlights reflection never gets clean
And standing around in the sleeping solstice
Is just a handful of human beings

Theres dirty hands on every doorknob
Faces with pushed in smiles
Cuts and fissures draining away the lifeblood
entrails dragging for miles

Dried blood on some empty white faces
lookin for somethin that was never there
rattlin padlocks hiding frozen beads and blankets
whispering their unnatural prayers

And up in heaven with impunity
Meting out judgement and moral certainty
And on earth on the business end of a shotgun
Is somebody with animal eyes
And nobody with money

Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
