Little Maniac

Little maniac, you got me spinning
Little maniac, you got me hurting

Oh you're just like this
You know I will bow my head low
Oh you know I will
So why do you keep the leash so short

Little maniac, you got me bleeding
Little maniac, you got me burning

Oh you're just like this
You know I will bow my head low
Oh you know I will
So why do you keep the leash so short

When I saw you in the shower
With your sister by your side
I knew then, my little maniac
That our love was made to last

Little maniac, you got me spinning
Little maniac, you got me hurting
Little maniac, you got me bleeding
Little maniac, you got me burning

Oh you're just like this
You know I will bow my head low
Oh you know I will
So why do you keep the leash so short



Johnny's Cool

I don't know what you've been told
But I'm not the one who's lame
You took my vibe
Then you took my name
And stole all my groovy friends

Johnny's cool, they told me
He stole his father's tools
Got his nose half broken
He learned his lesson
Just not in school

I played the trust game
And made your fool
You gave me the happy face
When I bent over to tie my shoe
I got your brown boot instead

Johnny's gone since we know
I heard he's doing well
Did one year in Chino
And six in county jail

All the boys are saying
By now he's quite insane
All the girls are praying
To be with him
When he's out again

Johnny's cool, oh he's alright
Toughing it through the night
Johnny's cool, yes he's alright
Won't go without a fight



Fire on the Field

Joe was a basket case
He didn't know right from wrong
He got out from his den
Joined up the force and got a gun

The boys were mix and match
The man in charge was out to lunch
His nights were rather flat
Joe played them high but...

All of his dreams turned into fears
All of his fears turned into tears
All of his dreams turned into fears
All of his fears turned into tears

Shipped out to a foreign land
With heavy rounds and camouflage
Joe failed to criticize
He thought the best was yet to come

Dig down and keep it quiet
Follow the code, just play it smart
Anything moves outside
Pull from the trigger and...

All of his dreams turned into fears
All of his fears turned into tears
All of his dreams turned into fears
All of his fears turned into tears
All that you kill shall be redeemed...

Joe was a basket case
He didn't know right from wrong
He was a flaky lad
Daddy was shot down in Da Nang



Under Ground

On that day
I was not okay
I heard
More than saw, felt
Ripped flesh burn

Hide your eyes
Light the fuse, then die
Goodbye
Leave us fear, cries
Rage, fire

Don't say why
Hold the wound closed tight
Survive
But the scar runs
Deep down

Your hands
Have drowned the sun



Slow Fade to Black

These are the days
When the bones hit the dust
These are the days
When the feet can't keep up the dance

I am a casual liar
The kind that do no harm
Just hang me for the cameraman

These are the days
When there's not much to tell
These are the days
When a word damns us all to hellTell me

I fry in one inch of lard
Cry until it's dark
I'll take the pain
But not your sense of justice

These are the days
When a rock beats a crown
These are the days
When a blow must not keep us down

You hold your hands and pray
A hollow phrase to heaven
I'll spit the hand that feeds the devil




A Dying Affair

I'm done pretending
I'll skip the lie
I'll skip the lie
I'm just a fool up on a stool
And steam blows through my seams

Do what you want to
I'll do alright
I'll do alright
Hold my hand, touch my head
A breath of air
Can give life to one who's dead

All the things that you say
Most of them sound rather vague

Is it me or your eyes
They just turned a shade of gray

Go on without me
If you care you could just
Stay instead, and up ahead
I'll give you a brand new reason

Climb your way
And let me follow
Into a new tomorrow
I miss a step and hit a stall
You try to reach
But your hands can't stop my fall

Looked away on the day
When I chose to go astray

Heavy coats, awful rain
Was the story worth the pain



Que Pasa Chichi?

Que pasa Chichi?
You're draggin' your feet
Try these lizard boots for fit
Try these lizard boots for fit

You know what they say
Some you lose and some you pay
Some you lose and some you pay

Que pasa Chichi?
You look kinda wild
What do you hold behind that smile?
What do you hold behind that smile?

You carry a piece?
I'll tell my mama not to sneeze
I'll tell my mama not to sneeze



Stranded

I am here
You were the dreamer
You were fire
I'm just a glimmer
You were gone
And all the pieces
Crumbled and faded
Now I'm here
Cold like that Winter

I was broken
You chose to hide it
You kept rolling
I nearly vanished
You held off
Your tears from falling
Over my planet
I reached deeper
You gave me power

I am here
Still cold and tired
All seems trivial
Still I keep trying
Tell me how
The whale laid dying
Down by the seashore
I wish I'd see you
If just for a moment





Marlon

I look like Brando
I look like Brando
Corpulent and medio guero

I look like Brando
I look like Brando
I wish I had half his dinero

Marlon was always deep
He never lost his sleep
I guess I just don't fit

Marlon was in the know
He fed on cookie dough
I pulled my final straw

I look like Brando
I look like Brando
Corpulent and medio guero

I look like Brando
I look like Brando
I wish I had half his dinero

Marlon was always slick
He waved a heavy stick
Feels like I'm getting sick

Marlon was in the know
He fed on cookie dough
I pulled my final straw



Tú y la Soledad

A que has venido
Otro te lo dirá
El corazón malherido
Nunca sabrá
Se ha detenido el tiempo
Sin consultar
Estamos siendo dos niños
Una vez más

Tú y la soledad

A veces dices
Quisiera regresar
A perseguir otro sueño
Voy a enterrar

Y a que has venido
Otro te lo dirá
El corazón malherido
Nunca sabrá



The Load

Got a load I'm gonna give it to ya
But hey, I got no one to eat
And no one to please



Savannah

One last remark
He whispered from under his blindfold
The blade froze midair
Four barrels looked down to the ground

The man with the bars
Moved closer to honor his blunt request
He dwelled on his mind
Then swallowed his spit and began

A year in the field
Takes virtue out of the most righteous
The blame lies all here
But hell, I am only a man

I walked through that door
The scene laid upon me was much to bear
My hand took the Colt
And shot them six times on the spot

I was glad to see her going
Now I'm sad to see her gone
Took my hand and left me glowing
Made my winters with her song

Sad, sorrowed and grieving
The prisoner choked on his bitter tears
The officer frowned
And hurried to dry off his face

Alone, broke and far from home
That's all well deserved
I cut down an angel
I guess now I'm ready to pay

I'm sorry to say, son
Your lady, she wasn't a maiden
Just here at the barracks
She was quite a popular dame

His lips didn't move
The echo of his words was already gone
The sword cut its course
All rifles exploded at dawn

I was glad to see her going
Now I'm sad to see her gone
Took my hand and left me glowing
Made my winters with her song



Solitary

I like the sunshine
Better than the rain
A patch of pasture
A lazy moving train

Salvation waits for me
In foreign company

I'm bound for heaven
The Lord's been good to me
He gave me reason
When I tried to break free

Couldn't beg for more
Hungry, cold and sore

I shut my eyes now
Can't use them anyway
I'm locked in shackles
So I don't hurt myself

Someone said I'm free
Someone watching me
