Track Name: Filthy
Well it’s a habit of mine, I like drinkin alone, and this bottle of pills is what I call home. How’s it taste when you chew down the pill that defines you?
I'm trying hard to be that, that boy that I was once before.  'Cause I've been living alone and I’ve been living a lie and I’ve been living in hell.

So take a hit from the hard line and smoke it up for the last time, 'cause it takes a piece apart of me.  And I won't stop at the stop sign; I'm gearing up for the hard life. And it takes a piece apart of me.

It's just a habit of mine, I like smoking alone and this bottle of moonshine’s halfway gone.  How's it taste when you spew all the SHIT that's inside you?

Track Name: The Bear Killer
Broken fingers, bloody nose; a tethered harness and the beat of the drum.  Shots of whiskey does it right; a tethered harness, I'm walking that line. 

Home sweet home, One tough son of a gun now…

I've been telling you for a long time, something's got to change this man.  I've been opened up like a dirty book.  Jesus, help me when you can. 

We've been driving, for a while.  We've been searching for that next great big denial.  We've been bloodied down on the streets, baby I'm going to come for mine…Going to come for mine…

I've been telling you for a long time, something's got to change this man.  I've been opened up like a dirty book.  Jesus, help me when you can.

Track Name: Spook, the Horse
My Colt .45, I keep it at my side (in case things look funny).  I'm not the type of dude you want to step up to (I'll have you running ugly).
So kick up a row with TWO FISTS, it's like this, I'm a bad bad man.  You better run away, or there'll be hell to pay. (repeat 1x)

Hail to the chief of rock and soul, 'cause I'm on a horse and halfway to hell.  Banging bars with the boys next door, so let's have a little who-hit-John.  Settle down or I'll set you down, by kicking your teeth in the dirt.  And you should feel ashamed baby boy.
2 FISTS, 2 FISTS, 2 FISTS, and I can smell fear in you… 2 FISTS, 2 FISTS, 2 FISTS, these 2 fists!

I smell it in you.  Face up, obey the road.  I taste it in you, put the gun in your mouth.  I won't settle for less, so keep this in mind.  Here's to all the non-believers.  You can't wear this belt, you won't fit in my boots, you ain't FUCKIN' country.

Creeping through a bar down on Blackwater Street, you can find a good time here, but that time don't come cheap.  Where everybody knows my name and I'm the hero in lights.  Southern California, baby, gonna ride 'til we die.
They'll spit you out and suck you in.  You won't ever make it.  They'll tear you down and burn you alive, leave you in a dry ass gulch cause,

Law don't come 'round here no more (get up, break up, break out of town).
I said, Law don't come 'round here no more (get up, break up, break out of town).

Sitting in a bar now down on Blackwater Street; there’s a girl sitting next to me that I'd like to meet. Well, everybody knows her name and she’s so lovely in lights. Southern California, baby, gonna ride 'til we die.
They'll spit you out and suck you in.  You won't ever make it.  They'll tear you down and burn you alive, leave you in a dry ass gulch cause,

Law don't come 'round here no more (get up, break up, break out of town)
I said, Law don't come 'round here no more (get up, break up, break out of town)
Law don't come 'round here no more (get up, break up, break out of town)
I said, Law don't come 'round here no more (get up, break up, break out of town)

Something’s going to happen, going to ride tonight. Want to see it, want to touch it, and want to ride tonight. I’m going to drink it, going to taste it, going to ride tonight. Going to fake it, going to fight it, going to ride tonight. Get wasted, talking dirty, going to fly tonight. Going to see it, fight it, touch it, FUCK it, feel it, and burn it bright!

Get me out of this here hell… I close my eyes and think of home. So take a life, and shoot ‘em down, all of our enemies. I close my eyes and think of home.

Law don't come 'round here no more (get up, break up, break out of town).

Track Name: On the Grind
I've been on the grind steady lookin' for the good time, best be on my way, I'm quickly running out, running out of time

I made a bet with the man who bets the most, he told me look hear boy your good for forty five, up towns the good stuff, but down towns the legal does, ... you best go run and hide

I tried to beat it the devil comes out
the main line attraction the star of the show

I take a shot of patron and then I'm begging for more and then you know I'm helpless, need i m a sucker for speed
Track Name: Deadly Like the Snake
double crossed a thousand times playing this part and I've worked hard for most my life right from the start

hey! hey! everybody will burn, i hope this place burns down and it doesn't mean that quittin is so bad

I don't know business and i ain't proper, I may be a fool but thats who I am, too bad
I worked hard for little paper, right from the start

I don't need you anymore to help me breath, cause on my knees for most my life "oh! mother marry"

I can admit that i have problems, well maybe I'm wrong but this is who i am
I've worked hard for most my life and nothing can change a rambling man, like me!

I've been taking a bath in dirty water, but now I'm taking it back and moving on
you know I'm better then you!
