1. NEW WEST TOWN 

In the dust strewn streets of New West Town
There lurks an oddity
Two-Gun Moe and Whiskey Bill
Maddy, Jake and Rosalie
And if you don’t know them by now
Let me tear your sanity
I am MURDERWRIGHT
The penman of lunacy 

History is a lie that few understand
But in this town we’re all a little mad
Join the celebration of the strange
A safe haven made for the deranged

New West Town is calling you
New West Town is calling you
New West Town is calling 

If you get the creepies
Don’t worry it’s just me
If you see me lurking
Don’t worry it’s just me
For I am just the penman
MURDER my specialty

If you get the creepies
Don’t worry it’s just me
Don’t worry it’s just me
Don’t worry it’s just 

History is a lie that few understand
But in this town we’re all a little mad
Oh join the celebration of the strange 
A safe haven made for the deranged

New West Town is calling you
New West Town is calling you
New West Town is calling
You 

 

2. JOLLY JAKE 

Here’s a tale few have heard
About Jolly Jake outlaw absurd
Unskilled with a pistol and clumsy to boot
Ninety-nine failed attempts to rob a stage he had no clue

He smiled all the time
And that’s no good
He had no business being a hood
But stubborn he was
He refused to give up
Every botched hold-up forced him to run Run to the hills

RUN JAKE RUN
Run at the speed of a Gatling gun
You’ve done it again you worthless bum
Run away run away
Run Jake
Run 

His legend grew yet no wanted signs
And this truly hurt Jake’s pride
Determined to prove his proficiency
He rode the Oregon Trail for a coach to thieve
He spied a Wells Fargo stage running slow
‘I will raid the coffers and steal their gold!’

He galloped hard to head them off
He drew his pistol brought ’em to a stop
And pulled a bandana to hide his face
But his eyes could not lie and gave his smile away 

Run to the hills
RUN JAKE RUN
Run at the speed of a Gatling gun
You’ve done it again you worthless bum
Run away run away
Run Jake
Run 

Then one day Jake he met
A gunfighter just as incompetent
As he was at his own trade
He smiled so wide his face stuck that way
Then Two-Gun Moe challenged Jake to a fight
A showdown at dusk that very night
So at 7pm when the clock striked
Moe cowered and Jake well he took flight 

Run to the hills
RUN JAKE RUN
Run at the speed of a Gatling gun
You’ve done it again you worthless bum
Run away run away
Run Jake
Run 

Jake he finally got his wish 
He survived Moe’s wrath and became famous 
And in his honor his own Wanted Sign 
After never ever committing not even one crime 
Run to the hills 
RUN JAKE RUN 
Run at the speed of a Gatling gun 
You’ve done it again you worthless bum 
Run away run away 
Run Jake
Run

Run to the hills 
RUN JAKE RUN 
Run at the speed of a Gatling gun 
You’ve done it again you worthless bum 
Run away run away 
Run Jake

4. SWEET ROSALIE

Originally written/recorded by American Murder Song.

What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
No one can love her half as much as me 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie?

Men in long coats came with scissors and soap 
Men in long coats came with scissors and soap 
Then dragged her away by a mule and a rope 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie?

They said that she bludgeoned her pa in his bed 
They said that she bludgeoned her pa in his bed 
But that could have been anyone wearing her head 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie?

What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
No one can love her half as much as me 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie?

Love is a white room that cures every ill 
The thicker the heart the stronger the pill 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
I’m mad about her and she’s crazy for me 

She busted out of the asylum today 
She busted out of the asylum today 
Left the guards dead after loosening her chains 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie?

I cooked a partridge to mark her escape 
I cooked a partridge to mark her escape 
Then she snatched up a blade 
And ’round the table we chased 
As she giggled and jabbed blood sprayed on her face 
’Til my heart gave in after throwing the race 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie?

Love is a knife that cures every ill 
The deeper the slice the greater the thrill 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
I’m mad about her and she’s crazy for me 

What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
No one can love her half as much as me 
What have they done to my sweet Rosalie? 
What have they done to my sweet sweet Rosalie? 

 

5. GILDED AGE

Let me tell you a story 
About three assholes 
JD, JP and Carnegie 
They outdid us all 
Oil, banking and steel 
Unregulated industries 
While people struggled for meals 
They grew their monopolies

My Mama used to tell me 
Never trust no man 
Like Morgan 
Who pays someone to fight 
His battles for him 
But Carnegie did it different 
I almost love that man 
After he made his fortune he became 
A humanitarian 
How convenient

JD was slick but that don’t sit too well 
But he got his bested by Ida Tarbell 
But can ya blame them given the means 
What would you or I do 
History is filled with assholes 
That’s the honest truth

But it’s different for folks 
Like you and me 
We live our lives in beatific 
Obscurity 
And those blind assholes will never know 
What we know 
Let them have the damn reigns 
We’ll enjoy the show 
Enjoy the show 

 

6. WHISKEY BILL

Bill was a wainwright he could have done worse 
But he was vexed by a vicious curse 
Every day at dusk he turned 
Into a scoundrel with a voracious thirst 
And only one drink could ever quell 
The Beast inside that screamed and yelled

One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey give me more

Then Bill met a lady who cured his ills 
And saved him from that awful swill 
For his sobriety he paid a witch’s price 
Each night he had to sacrifice 
A relative or friend to still his mind 
But soon Bill ran out of kin and kind

So he fixed his gaze upon the town 
Men, women and children aroused 
MURDEROUS thoughts in the mind of Bill 
Without the whiskey he’d surely kill

One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey give me more

Few bother Bill anymore and every eve left by his door 
Is a bottle of his favorite liquor 
With lipstick signed Sweet dreams love Lenore

One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots four 
Pour the whiskey more more more 
One shot two shots three shots more 
Give me whiskey, give me more

8. THE VIRGIN QUEEN

Maddy was desperate 
Maddy was broke 
She needed a job 
She needed a home 
And the only establishment in town that paid 
A young woman a good wage 
Was the hookshop at the end of Meandering Lane

So she summoned her courage 
Moved to Dead Man’s Inn 
Composed a brilliant business stratagem 
‘I’ve got the go to make it without dancing on my back’ 
She told the ladies of the line 
And they just laughed and laughed and laughed 
So she explained 

Now ladies...

It’s all about salting the proper Johns 
Exclusivity is what you really want 
An application fee does more than tease and taunt 
It’ll add a bit more scratch to your honey pot 
To your honey pot

Set you prices high far beyond their means 
Promise them the sky a coochie made for a king 
A little down payment never hurt no one 
Keep ’em coming back for more before ya give ’em some 
Before ya give ’em some

Pause 
Stall ’em 
Give ’em a refrain 
I’ve got this genius notion called lay-away

And when their accounts’ paid up 
The option is yours 
But I’ve gotta six-gun that says 
I ain’t no whore 
I ain’t no whore

Maddy made a fortune roved from town to town 
Set up shop and jacked the Johns 
Before their pants were down 
You might think her a thief but she had a sense of class 
The only wagtail in the West to earn a wage 
Without dancing on her back

Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns dream of Maddy 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns they dream of Maddy 
The Virgin Queen

Maddy made a fortune roved from town to town 
Set up shop and jacked the Johns 
Before their pants were down 
You might think her a thief but she had a sense of class 
The only wagtail in the West to earn a wage 
Without dancing on her back

Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns dream of Maddy 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns they dream of Maddy 
The Virgin Queen 

 

9. TWO-GUN MOE

There he stood in the middle of main.
Trembling and pondering the events that had led up to this day.
Laughter erupted.
He couldn’t comprehend. What was so funny?
In seconds, he’d be dead.
Then he looked down.
His trousers were soaked with urine.
He was a shop-keep not a gunfighter.
The outlaw laughed again, doubled over, turned his back.
And something in Moe’s head snapped.
Bang!
Moe shot him dead.

So Moe set out on a perilous quest 
To kill every outlaw in the West 
He had a secret weapon now 
His pee would bring the hammer down

One by one all would fall 
His yellow glory from his two big balls 
Would cleanse the West and tame the towns 
His golden showers would cut them down

He roved from town to town and gunned down 
Every outlaw he met by pissing himself 
His cowardice he wore on his sleeve 
Fed their egos, left them dead in the streets

Sheriffs and lawmen began to talk 
About Two-Gun Moe and his magic cock 
And they all adopted his strategy 
Now every gun fight was a pee party

Grab yer gun Moe will grab two 
And we’ll all have a good time 
He’ll get wet and you’ll get dead 
And we’ll all have a good time

Grab yer gun Moe will grab two 
And we’ll all have a good time 
He’ll get wet and you’ll get dead 
DRAW! 
It’s pee party time 

 

10. HAPPY MURDER TRAILS

Original version, Happy Trails, was written and recorded by Dale Evans & Roy Rogers.


Happy trails to you until we kill again 
Happy trails to you keep MURDERING until then 
Forget about the lead and let your wounds fester 
Come sing a song 
We’ll dual and die together 
Happy trails to you until we kill again.

1. SUMMER IN THE BLANKETS

Summer was a dire wolf cub That I once knew 
And he danced in the dark dark night 
Summer likes to lick Nearly everything 
But he prefers his four peni

Summer likes to be called Princess Summer 
And no one knows why 
Then one day he licked Walden The Dragon 
And got really high 

Then time slowed down 
And he got lost in the blankets 
And entered another dimension 
A soft fluffy realm 
Filled with warmth and affection 
Where he felt safe 

Then time slowed down 
And he got lost in the blankets 
And entered another dimension 
A soft fluffy realm 
Filled with warmth and affection 
Where he felt safe 

Summer likes boobs he's a hungry pup 
And he nurses on anything that look like them 
He went to Grand Boob National Park 
And is all he did was stare

Summer likes to hump nearly everyone 
He's got no goddamn shame 
Then one day he humped Walden The Dragon 
And he licked his emerald face 

Then time slowed down
And he got lost in the blankets 
And entered another dimension 
A soft fluffy realm 
Filled with warmth and affection 
Where he felt safe 

Then time slowed down 
And he got lost in the blankets 
And entered another dimension 
A soft fluffy realm 
Filled with warmth and affection 
Where he felt safe 
Where he felt safe 
Mother safe 
Summer in the blankets

3. DUDE

White fur red eyes 
Lightning stride

5. TEA PARTY

There she goes 
Trotting down the road 
With her head held high 
Wearing a purple bow 
Not a care 
What people think of her 
Living life on her own terms 
That's Lady 

She invited her friends 
To a tea party 
In the Washington woods 
Imagine the scene 
Six dire wolf cubs 
Cuddling and drinking tea 
Beneath the forest canopy 
With Lady 

And guess who crashed 
The tea Party 
It was Llama leading 
All the fearless sheep 
Time to drink some 
Tea with you 
I missed you my friends 
What would we do 
Without Lady 

The day was grand 
What a blissful ride 
Tea makes friends 
Out of you and I 
Can't wait to do it again 
Life's too short for 
Isms 
That's Lady 

 

6. SHOOTING STAR RAINBOW

I experience the world 
Through my nose 
It's a lovely sense 
For exploring 
The multitude of smells 
Casting their spells 
I'm hypnotized 
But their alluring 
Scents 

I'm always getting lost 
And sniffing my way out 
Rovey wolf be seeking 
Solace from the constant city shouts 
The trees of the forest 
Are seething 
Peace 

I'm master over no one 
No one masters me 
Slinking through the woods 
Of Gaerunossavae 
Many-a-times 
I've been hear before 
Many-a-scents 
I truly adore 

This is a bridge 
We need a bridge 
To bring us together 
And unite the wolves through song 
This is a bridge 
We need a bridge 
Let's build it together 
Hear our dire call 

We're all in this together my friends 
On a shooting star rainbow 
Flailing flying 
Through the void 
On a mission to explode 

We're all in this together my friends 
On a shooting star rainbow 
Flailing flying 
Through the void 
On a mission to explode 

This is a bridge 
We need a bridge 
To bring us together 
And unite the wolves through song 
This is a bridge 
We need a bridge 
Let's build it together 
Hear our dire call 

We're all in this together my friends 
On a shooting star rainbow 
Flailing flying 
Through the void 
On a mission to explode 

We're all in this together my friends 
On a shooting star rainbow 
Flailing flying 
Through the void 
On a mission to explode

OLIO WHEE!

1. MANHATTAN BOX 

It happens to the best of us don'tcha know 
Life interrupts our fucking flow oh-oh 
At times I feel I'm just slinging shit at the walls 
But even Shakespeare took seven years off to grow oh-oh 

And I'm stuck in a box forty floors up 
With a farting fat man and this neo-nazi fuck 
In the red dim light I sigh, 'it could be worse' 
Perhaps this will get me out of my rut 

Join this magic moment in here 
Where steel doors grin and Loki jeers 
Hilarity in gaseous form 
Smashing walls connections restored 
Because we're all one human species in here 
Like it or not we just want out of the box 
Oh get me out of this box 

Twenty minutes later we all were friends 
Frank's flatulence finally came to an end 
And Sid he just needed to be seen and he said 
'I'm gonna dump that hate-filled cunt regime'

Join this magic moment in here 
Where steel doors grin and Loki jeers 
Hilarity in gaseous form 
Smashing walls connections restored 
Because we're all one human species in here 
Like it or not we just want out of the box 
Oh get me out of this box 
Oh get me out of my box 

 

2. WHERE MUSIC LIVES 

I want no way out of here 
The harder I work the less I care 
About being a star or a millionaire 
I love making music in my cozy lair 
In my cozy lair 

I don't give a shit about toppin' the charts 
If I had it my way I'd burn them all 
And toss record execs into the blaze 
And mosh around and celebrate 

Because it's rigged 
It's a sham 

They told me that my song was too old 
Because I wrote it over thirty days ago 
It's gotta be fresh hashery fast 
'Cause the next best thing will never last 

Because it's rigged 
It's a sham 

Here we are you and I
Together enjoying this musical ride 
Raw and wriggling's how I like my tunes 
Served up to a select few 

Because we know 
Where music lives 
Oh we know 
Where music lives 
It thrives in the space between you and I

Because we know 
Where music lives 
Oh we know 
Where music lives 
It thrives in the space between you and I

Because we know 
Where music lives 
Oh we know 
Where music lives 
It thrives in the space between you and I

 

3. YOUNG LOVE 

I remember thinking of you every day 
Hoping that you would come out 
It was summer's end and I was leaving soon 
Headed back down South 

I remember you jumping up and down in the street 
When we last drove out of town 
Smiling and a-waving and a-screaming to me 
Those three magic words from your mouth 

Swimming pools me holding you 
Never letting go of you 
This is how I remember you 
This is how I remember you 

We couldn't have been more than twelve or thirteen 
I took you all summer long to come around 
But now those days are far away 
Do you ever think about 

Swimming pools me holding you 
Never letting go of you 
This is how I remember you 
Chasing ducks and ice cream trucks 
The majesty of young love 
This is how I remember you 
This is how I remember you 

Swimming pools me holding you 
Never letting go of you 
This is how I remember you 
Chasing ducks and ice cream trucks
The majesty of young love 
This is how I remember you 
Football on the avenue 
Sharing smiles and bruises too 
This is how I remember you 
This is how I remember you 

 

4. THIS LYFE 

When you know just one of the lies 
All the others fill your mind with whys and wonder 
Because I know this moment is real 
All the others are gone 
Lost 
Forgotten 

I'll tell you one of the lies 
You may not believe me 
You might be terrified 

This is the only life we get 
This is the only life we get 
Take care of it my friends and each other 

Wouldn't it be beautiful the other way 
The next life will end all the suffering 
Sounds made up 
Sounds like control to me 

This is the only life we get 
This is the only life we get 
This is the only life we get 
Take care of it my friends and each other 

You might not think this song is very positive 
It's in a major key so I'm sure it is 
I hope that you wake up from your sleep 
I'm snapping my fingers hear them bleed 

This is the only life we get 
This is the only life we get 
Take care of it my friends and each other 

I know this sounds like heresy 
Well it is 
The truth's a heretic 

This is the only life we get 
This is the only life we get 
This is the only life we get 
Take care of it my friends and each other 

 

5. PEOPLE OF THE WORLD 

It doesn't matter what I do 
Or what I say 
I'm unseen 
But I'm free to do whatever I choose 
Invisible derelict me 
So here's a message from me to you 
One day soon i hope you ascend 
And realize our lives are manipulated by 
Corporations 
Religions 
Governments 

I'm curious to see what might be 
When your heart is set free 
Will your brain melt down 
Splash upon this sound 
Taste the grove 
And swallow the feed 

People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you to see me 
People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you to see me 
People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you 

Open up your minds 
Remove the blinders from your eyes 
Question everything they told you 
Follow the trails of whys 
Here's a secret from me to you 
I know it will terrify 
Those in control of this money fucking go 
Are scared shitless of you and I

People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you to see me 
People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you to see me 
People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you 

People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you to see me 
People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you to see me 
People of the world 
Brain mushed and washed and whirled 
Is there something left of you 

 

6. DEFENESTRATION 

Don’tcha know they’re trying to divide us 
And it seems like they’re doing a good job 
Race sex class illusions that unite us 
Tell me you think yours is the chosen one 
We’ve got the same enemy between us 
We’re both getting fucked by a government 
Designed to keep us fighting each other 
While they smash grab and run off with the loot 

It may take us a few forevers 
But eventually we might learn the truths 
Like skin color is an adaptation 
Ancestors from a certain latitude
And money is a masterful invention 
Used to control a poor populace 
And my gender is no one’s fucking business 
And class is just another word that rhymes with ass 

War is not a free people’s natural state 
And the prison system is slavery 
Consensual sex and drugs are not crimes 
And alcohol is a known depressant 
And the patriarchy must fucking die 
We need women in all walks of our lives 
And the patriarchy must fucking die 
Some things rarely heard need to be said twice 

And being white should not bestow privilege 
This nation was built by illegal immigrants 
And genocidal and religious maniacs 
We shall carry this shame until we change 
I’ve lived long enough to know right and wrong 
And I'm old but I’m writing this song 
'Cause no one with a voice fucking will      
The greed machine never gets its full fill 

You’d think we’d be better educated 
Not the first hate regime in history 
We’ve grown comfortable and complacent 
It’s time to bring back 
Defenestration 

’Cause there’s more of us than there is of them 
And they’d never expect a direct hit 
In a moment’s gasp it’ll all be over 
Then you can watch it on the internet 
And life will be so much better after 
As long as we remember who we are 
Beautiful people standing together 
Uniting against corruption and hate 

And the downpour drove harder as I dove 
Deeper into this emotional role 
The storm is calmer now and so am I
I apologize for all the distress 
I’ve carried this hurt inside my whole life 
I just needed a moment to scream it out 
’Cause I never made a stand when I should 
I did not have enough water to bloom 

And when they rolled the tanks into my town 
I still told myself they’re just passing through 
Because I was scared and rightfully so 
And I obeyed and did as I was told 
’Cause I thought that I was the only one 
Look at all of you here with me today 
I could go on for one more forever 
But I think that I’ll make it through the night 
And if I never ever awaken 
Light a candle December twenty-ninth 


7. THE ASSHOLE SONG 

I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 
The warning signs are pointing and screaming heed 
But I'm a hopeful creature filled with curiosity 
I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 

I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 
You act like all the other assholes I meet 
Condescending 
Unsupportive 
And judging me 
I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 
I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 

Don't be an asshole 
Oh don't be an asshole 
Oh please don't be an asshole this time 
I've met too many assholes 
A fuck-shit ton of assholes 
I don't another asshole in my life 

Don't be an asshole 
Oh don't be an asshole 
Oh please don't be an asshole this time 
I've met too many assholes 
A fuck-shit ton of assholes 
I don't another asshole in my life 

I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 
I'm having trouble letting go 
You've broken me 
But I'm a beautiful woman 
Can you hear my heart sing 
I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 
I think you're an asshole but I don't wantcha to be 

Don't be an asshole 
Oh don't be an asshole 
Oh please don't be an asshole this time 
I've met too many assholes 
A fuck-shit ton of assholes 
I don't another asshole in my life 

Don't be an asshole 
Oh don't be an asshole 
Oh please don't be an asshole this time 
I've met too many assholes 
A fuck-shit ton of assholes 
I don't another asshole in my life 
Don't be an asshole 
Oh don't be an asshole 
Oh please don't be an asshole this time 
I've met too many assholes 
A fuck-shit ton of assholes 
I don't another asshole in my life 

Don't be an asshole 
Oh don't be an asshole 
Oh please don't be an asshole this time 
I've met too many assholes 
A fuck-shit ton of assholes 
I don't another asshole in my life 
Don't be an asshole 
Oh don't be an asshole 
Oh please don't be an asshole this time 
I've met too many assholes 
A fuck-shit ton of assholes 
I don't another asshole in my life 

Don't be an asshole 

 

8. OH MOTHER 

Mother is the word on children's lips 
For love understanding and tenderness 
But mostly it's the word that protects us well 
From the rotten little shits we are 

For we are quite stupid 
Most of our lives 
Causing all manner of mischief 
And to her credit she loves us still 
Who but mother wouldn't have us killed 

Boo-hoo 
Boo-hoo-hoo 
Boo-hoo 
Boo-hoo-hoo

Oh mother please comfort me now
I've done it again 
I've fallen me down 
Down the road of foolish whim 
A spectacle I've made of meself again 

Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
I've hit the big time again 

Now that I'm grown and out on me own 
Me thinks of mother and she eases me soul 
But I've blundered again 
Bungled so big 
That only a mother could love me for it 

Boo-hoo 
Boo-hoo-hoo 
Boo-hoo 
Boo-hoo-hoo

Oh mother please comfort me now
I've done it again 
I've fallen me down 
Down the road of foolish whim 
A spectacle I've made of meself again 

Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
I've hit the big time again 

Boo-boo 
I've got a boo-boo-hoo 
Boo-boo 
I've got a boo-boo-hoo

Oh mother please comfort me now 
I've done it again 
I've fallen me down 
Down the road of foolish whim 
A spectacle I've made of meself again 

Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
I've hit the big time again 

Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
Oh mother please comfort me now 
I've crashed 
And I've smashed 
Once again 

 

9. DEAD SAM 

There was a dead man named Sam 
Who traveled across the land 
From sea to sea 
He'd shout and scream 
Wherever he went he said 

My name is Sam 
I'm a roving dead man 
A very dead man that's me 
Yippee 
I died years ago 
But my spirit won't let go 
Singing catch me 
If you can 
I challenge thee 

People flocked from every city and town 
To see this dead man sing 
How strange it 'twas 
To see a dead man cuss 
While holding his head around his knees 

My name is Sam 
I'm a roving dead man 
A very dead man that's me 
Yippee 
I died years ago 
But my spirit won't let go 
Singing catch me 
If you can 
I challenge thee 

Now Sam was just a man 
With a slick and twisted plan 
Of thwarting death's sickle you see 
He wasn't very smart 
But he knew how to play the part 
Singing catch me if you can 
I challenge thee 

Now death was frustrated 
Of all the souls he's liberated 
Sam's wouldn't conform to his will 
But he's gotten a little fat 
And at his job a little lax 
There's just so many people 
Out there to kill 

My name is Sam 
I'm a roving dead man 
A very dead man that's me 
Yippee 
I died years ago 
But my spirit won't let go 
Singing catch me 
If you can 
I challenge thee 

In the dark 
Listen close and you'll hear 
Sam's screams 
From a thousand years 
Now he rides the wind 
In eternal bliss 
Singing 
Catch me if you can 

 

10. 1564 

We want you to be different but to do it our way 
We want you to be different but to do it our way 
We want you to be different but to do it our way 
Do it our way 

Jump through all the hoops we made 'em just for you 
Dance our puppet jig were the barons your the fools 
Manipulation

We want you to be different but to do it our way 
We want you to be different but to do it our way 
Do it our way

Conform to our rules 
When we feel your getting good 
We'll pull out the thumbscrews 
We'll throw you on stage 
Criticize everything you do

That's all you need to get through the door 
Oh it's 1564 
Fuck five

Pull the plug because I'm already bored 

We want you to be different but to do it our way 
We want you to be different but to do it our way 
We want you to be different but to do it our way 
Do it our way

500 dollar headshots are sure to get you far 
Pay your dues with our abuse 
We'll leave you broken and skard 

Because it's

That's all you need to get through the door 
Oh it's 1564 
Fuck five

Fuck the diminished and augmented chords 
Because it's

Fuck five 
Shit four 
Pull the plug because I'm already bored 
Because we're already bored 
Already bored 
Already bored

1. MUSIC TO ME (JERI & Don) 

Lyrics co-written with Jessica, Elizabeth, Rhianna and Isabella

I’m just making up lyrics 
I don’t know any better ones 
So I just write what I say 
’Cause I’m an artist 

And this song is my life 
And I want to share it with you 
So go tell the whole world 
This is music to me 

And the hardest part 
Is I never know what to say 
But life is like a wave 
Let the music take you away 
Let the music take you away 

Hey you over there 
Not listening 
Won’tcha tune into my song 
I’m not here for me 

‘Cause nothing is ever wrong 
When you’re honest with your heart 
And life is like a wave 
Let the music take you away 
Let the music take you away 

To all the people I know 
To all the people I don’t 
To everyone everywhere 
This is music to me 
This is music to me 

 

2. FRIENDS 

I’m thinking if you’re my friend 
Thinking if you’re my friend 
I’m thinking that you’re my friend 
But I don’t know 

I’m just thinking if you’re my friend 
Thinking if you’re my friend 
I’m thinking that you’re my friend 
But I don’t know 

When you look at me and smile 
I feel you mean it all the while 
You take such pleasure in my suffering 
Well it could be my interpretation 
Of the present situation 
But please oh please 
Put the gun down 

And it isn’t much to ask 
To want a different epitaph 
Then here lies Mike 
Killed by his imaginary friend 

And I haven’t done much 
With this life but I promise 
To try a little harder every day 

Won’tcha give me a second chance 
I’ll surely win you back 
For if I can make you smile 
Well that’s a start 

For if I can make you smile 
Well 
That’s a start 

 

3. MANAÑA

There was a time I thought everything I did was right 
There was a time I thought everything I did was right 
But now I’m not so sure why oh why 
There was a time I thought everything I did was right 
But now I’m not so sure why oh why 

’Cause sometimes I get depressed 
And my head turns into a chaotic mess 
Then the thought police hit 
And I say to myself you’re a fucking lunatic 
What gives you the right 
You suck give up don’t even try 

There was a time I thought everything I did was right 
But now I’m not so sure why oh why 
I wanted to play music I wanted to sing 
Well I guess it all worked out that’s what I’m doing 

But sometimes I feel I’m a fraud 
And I wanna smash my fucking head apart 
But then I realize 
It’s just the real world 
Eating away at my screaming heart 
And I know when I look back 
I’ll be happy I risked this near impossible chance 

’Cause there was a time I thought everything I did was right 
But now I’m not so sure why oh why 
There was a time I thought everything I did was right 
But now I’m not so sure 
Why the fuck 
Why 

Go to sleep 
Have sweet dreams 
Everything will be better 
Manaña 

 

4. INDICA 

Don’t give Indica the whiskey 
She’ll stab you in the eye 
Don’t give Indica the rum rum 
Or you’ll babysit all night 
Give Indica the champagne 
And she parties until dawn 
And a little marijuana 
That’s all she ever wants 

She’ll come over to your house house 
And fill your day with glee 
Take off with your lady 
Who knows what they might see 
Could be the fucking Bean 

She’ll eat your spicy food 
Light her tonguey tongue on fire 
But she don’t really care 
She’s here for fun not for hire 
’Cause lyfe don’t wait for shit 

Don’t give Indica the whiskey 
She’ll stab you in the eye 
Don’t give Indica the rum rum 
Or you’ll babysit all night 
Give Indica the champagne 
And she parties until dawn 
And a little marijuana 
That’s all she ever wants 

Well you might think this is stupid 
I don’t care what cunt-dicks say 
’Cause you don’t have an Indica 
To set you fucking straight 
And if I had a dollar 
I’d smack you in the face 
Ah ha ah ah ah ah 

Don’t give Indica the whiskey 
She’ll stab you in the eye 
Don’t give Indica the rum rum 
Or you’ll babysit all night 
Give Indica the champagne 
And she parties until dawn 
And a little marijuana 
That’s all she ever wants 
That’s all she ever wants 
That’s all she ever wants

Don’t give Indica the whiskey 
She’ll stab you in the eye 
Don’t give Indica the rum rum 
Or you’ll babysit all night 
Give Indica the champagne 
And she parties until dawn 
And a little marijuana 
That’s all she ever wants 
That’s all she ever wants 

Indica 

 

5. OUTSIDE 

I dowanna go outside no more 
I dowanna go outside no more 
I wanna bury my head in my hands 
And cancel all my plans 

I dowanna go outside no more 
I dowanna go outside no more 
I wanna watch my world fall 
Sulk and let it all 
Go up in flames 
Watch it all go up in flames 

I dowanna go outside no more 
I dowanna go outside no more 
I wanna beat myself down 
Smash my dreams into the ground 

I dowanna go outside no more 
I dowanna go outside no more 
I wanna jack up the pain 
Fill my brain with its shame 
Until I explode 
Until I fucking explode 

Alcohol makes it worse 
People and pizza and pot make it 
Better 

 

6. MAMA 

Mama can you help me 
Ride a bike 
And roller skate 
And Ice skate 
I think you can 

Mama can you help me 
I met a boy 
And my head’s all over the place 
Please don’t tell Dad 

Mama can you help me 
Now I’m a Mama too 
And all I want is to be as good 
Of a Mama as you 

Mama can you help me 
Henry’s gone 
And I’m fifty-two 
I don’t know what to do 
How is Dad 

Mama did I ever tell you 
You are my world 
I never could’ve made it without you 
I miss Dad too 
I miss Dad too 

Mama, I love you 

 

7. BRONTOSAURUS 

I feel like a big brontosaurus 
Standing on its legs too long 
I feel like a big brontosaurus 
I don’t care I wanna play 

But I’m in it far too deep now 
I’m sinking in love 
Let me drown 
I’m in it far too deep now 
I don’t care I wanna stay 

’Cause sometimes I feel I’m lying 
Right here in my Art 
Over velvet seas I’m flying 
Right here in my Art with you 

I’m bringing back this melody 
Predictable 
I know it’s cheap 
But I’m bringing back this melody 
I don’t care I wanna play 

’Cause life is like this melody 
Addictive 
And made with dreams 
’Cause life is a melody 
That I want to play 

I feel like a big brontosaurus 
Standing on its legs too long 
I feel like a big brontosaurus 
I don’t care I wanna play 
I don’t care I wanna play 
I don’t care I wanna play 
I don’t care I wanna 
Play 

 

8. BE NICE 

Why didn’t they tell you 
They told me every day 
And I really didn’t want to know 
That’s how most stories 
Go I suppose 
We don’t choose what we’re told 

Why didn’t they tell you 
They told me all the time 
You’re a mother fucking loser 
You’re a worthless god damn slime 

You’re a mother fucking loser 
You’re a worthless god damn slime 
You’re a mother fucking loser 
You’re slime 

So life rolls on 
And I’m finding they were wrong 
I’m not so bad 
Really Dad 
I write pretty good songs 
They may not make the charts 
Or have a shot at number one 
But that was never the goal 

You’re a mother fucking loser 
You’re a worthless god damn slime 
You’re a mother fucking loser 
You’re slime 

So therapy 
Is working out just fine 
They said to express your feelings 
Here are mine 
It wasn’t me you weren’t screaming at me 
It was all about you and I’d like to help 
But I’ve got troubles of my own 
Because I grew up hearing 

You’re a mother fucking loser 
You’re a worthless god damn slime 
You’re a mother fucking loser 
You’re slime 

So I’ll leave you with a bit of honest advice 
Who gives a fuck what anyone says just be nice 

 

9. LYFT 

There are books that need writing 
Songs that need recording 
There are shows that need booking 
And people that need hope 

There are faces that need smiling 
And hearts that need mending 
There are roads that need driving 
Lookout world I’m finally alive 

There are many that need thanking 
And those that need tending 
And before I am finished 
This lyfe will be gone 

Join me in song 
’Cause we don’t have long 
Let’s make the best of the time we have left 

Lift of your voices 
Oh follow mine 
Let’s show the whole world how to shine 
For death is on our heals 
And he’s sharpening his steel 
Any given moment could be our last 

I know this may sound sappy 
But don’tcha know wealth won’t make you happy 
Stop chasing the floating city made of gold 
One day my shield shall fall 
To the reaper’s black-toothed maul 
But until the final curtain call 
I’ll be exploding my art 

Join me in song 
’Cause we don’t have long 
Let’s make the best of this time we have left 

Lift of your voices 
Oh follow mine 
Let’s show the whole fucking world how to shine 
For death is on our heals 
And he’s sharpening his steel 
Any given moment could be our last 
Any given moment could be our last 

 

10. SO LONG 

I don’t know where to begin 
But it seems I’m in the wrong place again 
And I don’t know how to leave 
All the years they fill my memories 
But I know that if I stay 
The I inside will surely die 
I will die 

So long 
Farewell 
Goodbye 
Wish me well 
’Cause there’s no place here for me 

And here 
I don’t have a voice 
But I thought if I worked really hard 
They’d have no choice 
But to accept me for who I am 
But I know that’s never gonna happen 
Not gonna happen 

So long 
Farewell 
Goodbye 
Wish me well 
’Cause there’s no place here for me 

So long 
Farewell 
Goodbye 
You can go to Hell 
’Cause there’s no place here 
There’s no place here 
There’s no fucking space left here 
For me

1. SHINE

I woke up on the tent floor
Wondering where I was
Utah Montana Colorado Wyoming
Who knows where the hell I was
And I didn’t have an answer
That sounded anything like right
For I’ve been roving for a while
And I’ve seen so many people shine

I’ve seen so many people shine
That I thought it was a dream
And all that while I must had been
Lying on the tent floor
’Cause sometimes I just get lost

Sometimes I just get lost
And fall into the dreamworld
Which is more terrifying than life
And my heart begins to pound
And tears prickle my eyes

In a panic I try to justify
This existence of mine
How is it I have this privilege
To see so many people shine

I see so many people shine
That I must be here for you
Not to live in any one place
But to show the eagle of heart
Life is what we create

Life is what we create
Life is what we create
Life is what we create
Life is what we create

 

2. CRAWL 

I’m detangling this rat’s nest 
That’s sittin’ atop my head 
And looking ’round camp 
With a horrid sense of dread 
There’s condoms on the tent walls 
Strange clothes strewn about 
And where did this book 
On elves come from

As I pieced together 
The memory shards 
Of my shattered story arc 
I waltzed through the wreckage 
To remember what I’d forgot 
Then it hit me 
I whirled in holy shit shock 
Butt naked in the woods 
By a Faerie I’d been caught 

People walking hand in hand 
Coffee’s brewing 
And I hear laughs 
Then I glow 
And I know 
That life is grand 
Oh please 
Can we do it again 

I remember picking berries 
By the light of the moon 
We had crawled into the dark 
And passions had bloomed 
Today I feel reborn 
Berry stained 
Scraped by thorns 
Oh please oh please 
Let this be my life 
Oh please oh please 
Let this be my life 

People walking hand in hand 
Coffee’s brewing 
And I hear laughs 
Then I glow 
And I know 
That life is grand 
Please can we do it again 

Oh please 
Can we do it all again

 

3.  CURSE OF THE BRUCE

You bark curses while ya use 
Your power weedwacker 
Anger waves tip the hat and nod 
You cut your lawn with your louder 
Power noisemaker 
Yell at the dog for being a dog 

I’m sittin’ next door 
I hear the expletives flying 
Should I be concerned 
And I’m wondering 
If this is some form of therapy 
If so I want me a turn 

To liberate the Bruce in me 

Howdy neighbor 
I think you’re on to something 
A new imprecation craze 
For I’ve roved around 
This great nation 
So many smiles on the brink of break 
Yep it’s all one big fat lie 
Called the American Masquerade 

Liberate the Bruce in thee 

Don’t you know you have no control 
Over he or she or they 
It’s all one big mixing bowl 
Of batter that turns to grey 
And if you want to steer this ship 
Protect my right to say 

Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit cock cunt 
Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit fuck 
Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit cock cunt 
Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit fuck 

If you think this is a chorus 
I think you’re wrong 
’Cause I can do whatever I want 
It’s my fucking song 
So 

Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit cock cunt 
Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit fuck 
Bruce if you choose to curse all day 
In your side yard 
I’ll support you in your endeavor 
But I’m gonna write and song 
And sing because I want to do 
What you have done 
And I’m cranking up the speakers 
So sing with me our song 

The curse of the Bruce infects us all 
Let the shits fucks and cunts 
Crumble all the walls 
That divide the US 
Stop the sickness sound off 

Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit cock cunt 
Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit fuck 
Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit cock cunt 
Fuck fuck fuck mother fucker shit fuck 

Bruce if you choose to curse all day 
In your side yard 
I’ll support you in your endeavor 
But I’m gonna write and song 
And sing because I want to do 
What you have done 
And I’m cranking up the speakers 
So sing with me our song 

The curse of the Bruce infects us all 
Let the shits fucks and cunts 
Crumble all the walls 
That divide the US 
Stop the sickness 

The curse of the Bruce infects us all 
Let the shits fucks and cunts 
Crumble all the walls 
That divide the US 
Stop the sickness sound off 
The curse of the Bruce infects us all 

Liberate the Bruce in thee 

 

4. RAMBLING MINSTRELS

Lyrics co-written with: 
Barbara Sorenson and Aydan Quinn

Two rambling minstrels 
Kind of three 
A hermitage full 
Burrito eve 
Singing and writing 
Here in the woods 
Some might think 
We’re wasting our time 
But we’re rambling minstrels 
That’s our minds 

Longer and longer 
And longer and longer 
We need this verse to be 
Longer and longer 
’Cause we’re rambling minstrels 
We are 

Oh we need a bridge 

Three days in Illinois 
Two in Ohio 
Then it’s back to Wisconsin again 

Because we’re rambling minstrels 
Rambling Minstrels 
We are 
Some people look at us so funny 
When we ask them for a little bit 
Of honey money 
To feed the rambling minstrels 
We are 

Others think that we’re magic
And they invite us to their houses 
To sleep on their couches 
With the dogs and their mouses 
And their cats and their louses 
Then they sell those couches 
For millions of dollars 
And tell all their friends 
That they once knew us 
When we were just 
The rambling minstrels we are 

Rambling Minstrels 
Rambling Minstrels 
We are 

Ten days in Oregon 
Then it’s off to Camano 
To write another six-pack of songs 

Because we’re rambling minstrels 
Rambling minstrels 
Yes we’re rambling minstrels 
Rambling minstrels 
Oh we’re Rambling minstrels 
We are 

 

5. CENTIPEDE 

I’ve figured it out 
I think I’m a centipede 
Having trouble blowing up 
My mattress 

Oh oh oh oh 
I think I’m stoned 

And I’d feel really good 
Especially if I’d understood 
How to work my air compressor 

Wrong in in right hole 
My current debacle 
And it’s flatter than when I began 

An hour and a half ago 

Use the other end 
Aydan said 
Use the other end 
Use the other end 
Michael Michael 

Oh oh oh oh 
I think I’m stoned 

So I pushed and pumped and shoved 
Man I’m so fucked up 
That I found another hole 
In my mattress 

Oh what’s the little one for 
What the fuck’s it for 
Is it here just to jack with my head 
’Cause it works a little bit 
But this shit-fuck dick fuck-shit 
Takes forever to inflate my mattress 
Oh oh oh oh 
I think I’m stoned 
Oh oh oh oh 
I think I’m stoned 

But I figured it out 
I think I’m a centipede

 

6. A REN IN THE REN 

They want you 
Good enough to make ’em laugh Bad enough that people forget 
New enough to know your worth 
Meek enough to be a threat 
Because it’s all about 
The coin and control 
’Cause they were miserable kids 
And they’re taking it out on you 
You represent their regrets 

To Jeffrey Jim and George 

There’s more to life than money 
And being a shrewd businessman 
And self-abuse is corollary 
Relieve the cunts of their command 
Because there’s more to life than money 
And being a shrewd businessman 
And self-abuse is corollary 
Relieve the cunts of their command 

Oh oh oh oh 

I see all the pain passed around 
And the artists clawing the dirt 
Ron and Phyllis would be appalled 
I call for a Renaissance rebirth 
So add me to your misfit shitlist 
Collude conspire and pitch a fit 
Because you’re all 
So fucking deranged 
The smaller faires are so different 
And to that fucking whore at Bristol 

There’s more to life than money 
And being a shrewd business land 
And gaslighting’s not the funny 
Relieve the cunts of their command 
Because there’s more to life than money 
And being a shrewd business land 
And gaslighting’s not that funny 
Relieve the cunts of their command 
Relieve the cunts of their command 

Oh oh oh oh

 

7. OFF WE GO 

Seated at a red kitchen table 
In the ’burbs of Chicago town 
Shared a pie 
From Giordano’s last night 
Um I think we’re home 

To catch our breathes 
Before heading west 
In the care of friends and smiles 
Our spectral cats 
One tabby one black 
Out back still running wild 

In a lake house solarium 
At the Duck waters 
Of Wisconsin now 
Writing a song called Dragons Gold 
Um this life’s unreal 
Magical worlds fantastical realms 
At liberty to follow my pen 
Oh it seems that we’ve fallen 
Into the arms of love again 

Then off we go down the road 
With our nerve-cracked acts 
Hoping that we’ll be a smash 
And be invited back 
Then off we go 
Down the road 

Maybe you haven’t noticed 
What’s been happening to me 
I never quite fit into the mix 
I’m an artist can’t you see 
You might think we’re crazy 
I don’t disagree 
Driving 40,000 miles a year 
On this rocky road of dreams 

Then off we go down the road 
With our nerve-cracked acts 
Hoping that we’ll be a smash 
And be invited back 
Then off we go 
Down the road 
To the next show 

At a forest table in Oregon land 
Adding the final brushstrokes 
Before off we go

 

8. WOODED SEA

I’m eating with a spoon 
I don’t need a fucking fork 
It’s a silver one 
From my Grandmother 
And if she were here 
I’d be eating with her 
With a silver spoon 
Of my Grandmother’s 

And with that spoon 
I eat from a wooden bowl 
And I rove from town to town 
So I can sing you a new bardic tune 
On my next go around 

Here it is osmose lyric 
Fingers up my brain 
Writing in the forest 
At the side of the highway 
And you might think this is strange 
 Me acting like this way 
Come and join the nature 
And sing in the wooded sea 

We’re headed to Washington 
Again this month 
I really love this state 
For it has mountains 
And legal marijuana 
And I feel real safe 
There’s something right 
With high altitude 
That makes people nice and wise 
Perhaps it’s the strain 
Placed upon their brains 
Less oxygen more fun minds 

Here it is osmose lyric 
Fingers up my brain 
Writing in the forest 
At the side of the highway 
And you might think this is strange 
Me acting like this way 
Come and join the nature 
And sing in the wooded sea 

Grab a ride 
Bring your instruments 
And a pen and camping accoutrements 
And pilgrimage to the forest 
And sing in the wooded 

Here it is osmose lyric 
Fingers up your brain 
Writing in the forest 
At the side of the highway 
And you might think this is strange 
You acting like this way 
Welcome to the nature 
Let’s sing in the wooded sea 
Wooded sea 
Wooded sea 
Wooded sea 

 

9. GET ME OUTA THIS LIFE

Get me outa this life 
Get me outa this mind 
I’m wasting away 
A little more each day 
Get me outa this life 

Get me outa this life 
Get me outa this mind 
I’m yanking the chain 
Tumbling down the drain 
Get me outa this life 

There is a way out of every fate 
All that is takes is all that you are 
There is a place made for every face 
To navigate look to the stars 

Get me outa this life 
Get me outa this mind 
I’m wasting away 
A little more each day 
Get me outa this life 

Get me outa this cage 
Get me outa this rage 
I’m dying here 
But maybe next year 
I’ll get me outa this cage 

Into the beatific unknown realm 
Where dreams coalesce 
And unite as one 
It’s right here inside you 
If you’ve got the guts 
To be open and vulnerable 
To trust 

Get me outa this life 
Get me outa this mind 
I’m wasting away 
A little more each day 
Get me outa this life
Get me outa this mind 
I’m dying here 
But maybe next year 
I’ll get me outa this life 

I’ll get me outa this life

 

10 .QUIET TIME

Quiet time is here again 
Quiet time is near again 

Put up the musical instruments 
’Cause quiet time is here again 
But I don’t wanna quit playing 
I want to play the whole night through 
I don’t wanna quit shining 
Until I bark at the moon 

That’s why I say 

Fuck quiet time
Fuck quiet time
Anytime’s too early
For quiet time
Fuck quiet time 
Fuck quiet time 
Fuck you 

Quiet time is here again 
Quiet time is near again 

Farewell to friends 
And acquaintances 
’Cause quiet time is here again 
But I don’t wanna quit playing 
I want to play the whole night through 
I don’t wanna quit singing 
I wanna sing another song or two 

That’s why I say 

Fuck quiet time 
Fuck quiet time 
Anytime’s to early 
For quiet time 
Fuck quiet time 
Fuck quiet time 
Fuck you 

Quiet time is here again 
Quiet time is here again 

Fuck this one more song
