Wandering Child
(6:06)


Written By Haynes, Abts
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI) / Jake Henry Music (ASCAP)

In a lonely dream a boy goes walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his world is just an ocean
Says his poor heart too many times been broken

The bones in your closet
Once bore the skin of your fathers
Guess that means it's out of your hands
Or you're too tired, too tired to bother

Help me now, save the wandering child

Now that you're broken, who'll clean up this mess
Now that your vision is blinded, I guess
You say where do I fall, now that my strength is gone
And who do I tell, I've done nothing wrong

Float upon the river till the water runs still
Dive to the bottom-got to drink from the well
Till I find out who I am, till I find out who I am
Now that there's no one to show me

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child

In a lonely dream a boy keeps walking
Drowned in shame, drunken with emotion
He says his kill-it is his crown
Says his angels are no longer looking down

A horse and a monkey, no kids and no wife
A hell of a way for a hero to spend his life
Time to unearth the worm
Let this bridge fall down and burn

Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child
Help me now, save the wandering child

Life Before Insanity
(6:13)


Written By Haynes, Louis
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI) / Normorto Music (BMI)

All I see are faces, a sea of faces
Surrounded by the memory of life before insanity
Hard to explain the hunger, if you don't feel it
What I really need is your breath raining on my skin

And I'm so tired, tired of feeling sorry for myself
And I want more

All I feel are clouds, surrounded by clouds
Yesterday's anger is the sadness of today
Our lives were filled with summer and laughter
Now our smiles are grey
Once I held you close, now my thoughts just drift like the wind

Can you feel it, can you feel it
Can you feel it, can you feel it
Coming down

And I'm so tired, tired of feeling sorry for myself
And I want more, got me wanting more
Night keep falling, and the wind keep calling my name

All I see are faces, a sea of faces
Surrounded by the memory of life before insanity
Hard to explain the hunger, if you don't feel it
What I really need is your breath raining on my skin

Bad Little Doggie
(3:48)


Written By Haynes, Woody, Abts

Come in with the sunrise, who knows where you go
Smellin' like something, I don't want to know

Your sister can't save you, she don't know what to do
Your bad behavior has finally caught up to you
Bad little doggie

Soul all tweeked out, life line thin
Loose little school girl, what a shape you're in

Blue violence, red rosaries
Roots of evil growing into trees
I'm through messin', time to learn your lesson
Bad little doggie

I'm through messin', time to learn your lesson
Bad little doggie

Come in with the sunrise, gone with the wind
Devil in your eyes, pocket full of sin

Fire can't melt you when your mind's made up
Ice can't cool you, naughty little pup
Bad little doggie
Bad little doggie
Bad little doggie

Lay Your Burden Down
(5:27)


Written By Haynes, Barbiero
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI), Ringbearer Music (ASCAP)

It's heavy-lay your burden down
It's heavy-lay your burden down

Brother can't you see stars in the night
Brother can't you see stars in the night
There's a road up yonder far beyond the light

Take a ride this morning on a slow train through the sky
Take a ride this morning on a slow train through the sky
My life is just a fast train, gone in the blink of an eye

It's heavy-lay your burden down
It's heavy-lay your burden down

Felt the hand last Sunday when the stars refuse to shine
Felt the hand last Sunday when the stars refuse to shine
I'm just a young man, I don't feel like dying

It's heavy-lay your burden down
It's heavy-lay your burden down

Can't you hear the angels screaming or is it all in my head
Can't you hear the angels screaming or is it all in my head
Looking out my window and the sky is blood red
The sky is blood red

You got to lay your burden down

Fallen Down
(6:58)


Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

Bigelow the gigolo, had no where else to go
His sad eyes had seen it all
Scarred and lonely, tough as nails
Open your heart when all else fails
Wear the veil and the Trojan horse smile

Looking back on yesteryear
Seems like, maybe, you missed your calling
But hindsight is very clear when loneliness is falling

And you have fallen down, down from the heavens
Stuck out in the desert
Amazing grace - such a lonely place
For heroes like you and me
Fallen down, just like a shooting star
With no fallen angel standing by
To carry you away

Target practice with other people's lives
Hit a few right between the eyes
But, most of the time, you were wounded by the ricochet
You say play to win, boys, never play to lose
Long as your playing, boy, you're bullet-proof
But think about it - you're bleeding to death anyway

And you have fallen down, down from the heavens
Stuck out in the desert
Amazing grace - such a lonely place
For heroes like you and me
Fallen down, just like a shooting star
With no fallen angel standing by

Angel of mercy, take pity on a fool
That spent a lifetime wondering
What Napoleon would do
If he were in your shoes

Rich, without pleasure - respected without love
Drinking poison from a golden cup
While anger, brother of fear, creeps like a knife into your heart

Looking back on yesteryear
Seems like, maybe, you missed your calling
But hindsight is very clear when loneliness is falling
And destiny's through calling
And you have fallen down - fallen down
Amazing grace - it's such a lonely place
Oh yes it is
Fallen down
Fallen down

Fallen down
Fallen down
Fallen down
Fallen down

World Gone Wild
(6:17)


Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

Hey, don't you want to go down with me
I won't tell, I won't tell a soul
Me, I've got all that anyone could need

Hey, don't you want to take a ride with me
I don't need, I don't need no gun
Drink up now; it's time to be moving along
Got to move along

Victim of loneliness - bastard child
Left alone in this wilderness

Hey, you think everything's funny
But I won't crack, I won't crack a smile
Screamer, scream on - ain't nobody gonna hear you anyway
Nobody gonna hear you

Victim of loneliness - another bastard child
Left alone in this wilderness

Is it all a dream
Is it all a dream
Is it all a dream
Oh yeah

Victim of loneliness - another bastard child
Left alone in this wilderness
World gone wild
World gone wild

Tastes Like Wine
(6:57)


Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

Hey, are you still here in the morning light
Last night was a world I've never known
Parallel universes in one small room collided
Now the seed is sewn

Time, time, my friend, we've been through so much, it seems
Alone together till the end
And, now, though I find this all so threatening
I can feel it - sinking into my skin

The gods must be nervous - can't you feel it shaking inside you
World must be trembling like I am
Clouds must be breaking - blood raining down from the heavens
And it feels like gold - tastes like wine

Strength has always been my enemy
Solitude I've known like my own name
People, by now, know what to expect from me
Nothing - and I will do the same

The gods must be nervous - can't you feel it shaking inside you
World must be trembling like I am
Clouds must be breaking - blood raining down from the heavens
And it feels like gold - tastes like wine

The gods must be nervous - can't you feel it shaking inside you
World must be trembling like I am
Clouds must be breaking - blood raining down from the heavens
And it feels like gold - tastes like wine

I Think You Know What I Mean
(4:55)


Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

He was a cowboy in an Indian bar
Not a real cowboy - but I think you know what I mean
She wasn't no movie star, but then again
She wasn't exactly green

He said -like it hot
She said -I like it on fire
He said -ready or not
She said -I'm ready, baby
Come on, I'm ready, baby, make me out a liar
And the walls exploded into a white smoke-screen
Well, not exactly - but I think you know what I mean

She was a country girl - never been no where
Straight from the woods - I think you know what I mean
Told her sister she was out of there
Next stop Hollywood - barely seventeen

And a voice said -Need a job
She cried -desperately
It whispered -bow your head
She said -Oh Lord,
I never thought that this could happen to me
And her spirit kind of floated away in a muddy slip stream
Well, not exactly - but, I think you know what I mean

He was a movie star turned president, not like Eisenhower or DeNiro
But, I think you know what I mean
Tried to convince us he was heaven sent
With that carny smile and a missile in his sleeve

He says -feed the poor- yeah, feed 'em to the lions
We're screaming -even up the score
He's screaming back, now, -we're number one, and we ain't even trying
And, now, ain't you proud to be part of the American dream
Well, not exactly - I think you know what I mean
I think you know what I mean
I think you know what I mean

Far Away
(5:54)


Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

Hello again - It's me, the fool on the hill
Life here ain't so bad
My dreams are dark-my friends are wasted
Just like their moms and their dads

And they don't know what I am talking about
And they may never know

I'm just fourteen - but I know where I stand
Behind these walls - life ain't so easy
But it's turned me into a man

Sometimes I don't know what I am talking about
And I may never know

Far away - the taste of reality
Far away - perfect little family
Far away - the little boy I used to be

Look at my eyes - maybe they'll show you the truth
The truth I cannot see
Once in a while I catch a glimpse of it all
But it slips away from me
Someday I'll know what's going on in my head
For now, I'll just stay here

Far away - the taste of reality
Far away - perfect little family
Far away - the little boy I used to be
Far away

I hate it when they look right through you
It sends me into a rage
I know I ain't crazy - and I don't need your proof
I just need out of this cage

Hello again - It's me, the fool on the hill
Life here ain't so bad

No Need To Suffer
(8:20)


Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

Woman - suspended in time
Heal yourself - no need to stay blind
Spiral dreams - too much to bear
Spiraling who knows where

Let me take you down
No need to suffer anymore
Wrap yourself in the warmth of my arms
And we'll lie awake till sleep overtakes us
Can't you see
There's no need to suffer anymore

Defenseless, trapped in a cage
Blissfulness devoured by the rage
Fate's been cruel, though the years have been kind
You've go to heal yourself - no need to stay blind

Let me take you down
No need to suffer anymore
Wrap yourself in the warmth of my arms
And we'll laugh out loud while the earth dies screaming
Can't you see
There's no need to suffer anymore

And we'll fly away
And look down at the earth below
Fly away and we'll never look back
No, we'll never look back

Woman suspended in time
Heal yourself - no need to stay blind

In My Life
(12:48)


Written By Haynes
Published By Buzzard Rock Music (BMI)

I can't save you - but I can talk you down
I will hold you - but I won't watch you drown

In my life - things have a way of growing downward
And I don't know if I can watch myself be a coward
Again

I don't know you like I thought I did
But I will show you things that I kept hid

In my life - I've always been the one that had to ruin things
So I don't know - is some dark angel pulling on my heart strings
Again

People change - I don't know what for
Strangers walking in and out my door

Something's got to change - the past just hangs here to remind me
That one of these mornings - I'll reach for you
And find me

I have told you - I won't watch you drown
I can't save you - but I will be around

If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day (Hidden Track)
(12:50)

Written By Robert Johnson
Published By Complete Music LTD (ASCAP)

If I had possession over judgment day
If I had possession over judgment day
All these women I've loved would have no right to pray

I went up on the mountain, far as my eye can see
I went up on the mountain, far as my eye can see
Another man got my woman - lonesome blues got me

Well I folded my arms, slowly walked away
Well I folded my arms, slowly walked away
In my mind, in my mind - gonna be trouble some day

Well I rolled and I tumbled - cried the whole night long
Well I rolled and I tumbled - cried the whole night long
When I woke up this morning - my biscuit roller gone

Well come on here mama - sit down on my knee
Well come on here mama - sit down on my knee
I'm gonna tell you all about the way they treated me

If I had possession over judgment day
If I had possession over judgment day
All these women I've loved would have no right to pray
