Track Name: Frozen
Frozen

I ran my luck and I ran my name
Through the worst parts of this town
Now I've got no bread, I've got no place to stay
And no one wants me around

It's kinda quiet here, the highways out there
The river runs and there's a never ending hum
For still and silence I'll stomp out into the woods
But I love the sound of those big trucks

I close my eyes and accelerate and crank the wheel to the south
But the truth is harsh, I accept my fate
There's just no getting out

The only hope the winter brings is the coming of the spring
And that's the time a rambler runs
If he ain't frozen

The only hope the winter brings is the coming of the spring
And that's the time a rambler runs
If he ain't frozen
Track Name: Creepy Shakes
CREEPY SHAKES
Those people who you meet that start talking straight away about their latest court case
saying they got screwed by the D.A. and that old judge didn't like their face
Usually those stories start out with them saying - they were all fucked up
And when the coppers searched the car
They found a bunch of drugs
WHY YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE I RELATE
THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE
GIVE ME THE CREEPY SHAKES
Those rednecks who tell you about this gun they've got that can put a hole through a bear
They always gotta make me feel the weight of the rifle, I say Wow but I don't care
I don't care if you shoot a million bullets in the trees - just don't kill nobody
You’ve got the right to bare arms but don't act like a nut and threaten World War three
WHY YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE I RELATE
THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE
GIVE ME THE CREEPY SHAKES
Now this chick here is somebody’s wife but she’s acting like it don’t matter
I get around but I ain't into putting people down despite love for me being pretty shattered
So baby this is real real bad news - getting this close to my face
All you're doing is making mistakes that I'm gonna end up having to explain .
WHY YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE I RELATE
THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE
GIVE ME THE CREEPY SHAKES
Track Name: Both So Dark
BOTH SO DARK
I was friends with the other kind of artist
The kind that’s real well fed
Sleep all the time and only work when she wanna
Only worries were the one’s that she made up in her head
TWO KINDS
TWO KINDS OF ART
TWO WORLDS
BUT THEY BOTH SO DARK
Just another night, she was at the bar
He was on the microphone strumming his guitar
It had been a while, he said it’s good to see ya
She said she really dug his cover of Carmelita
TWO KINDS
TWO KINDS OF ART
TWO WORLDS
BUT THEY BOTH SO DARK
They hung out a while and had a little thing
They’d go driving around and they’d hit the town and they’d go snowshoeing
Then came the day it became all about Woman and Man
Some words were spoke and the fires were stoked
And they never rode around again
TWO KINDS
TWO KINDS OF ART
TWO WORLDS
BUT THEY BOTH SO DARK
Track Name: Wicked Bummer
WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL
Rippin’ E Brakes and hammerin’ up a logging trail
Drinking cold Budweiser riding shotgun with my buddy Neil
OH WELL
IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL
I remember those days, it’s tough when you’re 22
It was a time of war and I was confused
OH WELL
IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL
I liked this chick but my buddy bought her fare and square
He buys her cigarettes and she smokes a high-class brand
OH WELL
IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL
I was a little kid looking up at him thinking he’d never break
Then those rocks slide, they came tumbling down and he lost his face
When the Old Man fell it really shook this place

Who knows what’s going to go down in this heat
The crazy summer air is waving on the black concrete
OH WELL
IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL
My Uncle Hank died before they lifted the curse
If there’s a radio in Hell then I’m sure he heard
OH WELL
IT WAS A WICKED BUMMER WHEN THE OLD MAN FELL
