BLACK COFFEE

chorus
Drinking black coffee in the morning
starring down the sunrise
drinking black coffee into the evening
red-eyed in the moonlight  ..driving all night

verse
From the white sand, through the swampland
by the peach stand, big chief big band
i ain't stopping 'til that buzz runs thin

Pipin' hot, double shot
crack a'dawn at the gates to the southwest
burnt steam clearing my dreams
giving a zing to my brain to assimilate 

chorus
Drinking black coffee in the morning
starring down the sunrise
drinking black coffee into the evening
red-eyed in the moonlight  ..driving all night

verse
Dealin' with the feelin' that you've gotten dependent on the
java tea, the bitter bean, livin' for the minute when you
get to drink adrenaline: caffeine & cream

You got the sump, the crunk, the grind, the jump, the
bump, give it just a second then you feel your blood pump
lovin' the minute I hit it to git it, you know that I said it
arabica rubiaceae

chorus
Drinking black coffee in the morning
starring down the sunrise
drinking black coffee into the evening
red-eyed in the moonlight  ..driving all night

verse
Talking to myself, the cup is empty
five hundred and fifty miles
hundred miles per hour ..hours and hours

Living off the drip
until I get my next fix

BOURGEOIS KING

chorus
Have it your way
your way now

verse
Driving in your car, feeling who you are
proud to be the king of a world that is your own
caravan of crowns smiles down the boulevard
everywhere where you go you get it your way

a target for satisfaction, a servant in abstraction
a blue-collar colored opposite, loved for what you have
living as the spoiled child, all the while a life gone mild
society loves you, society needs you

chorus
Have it your way
your way now

verse
If you're lovin' it, then it's right tonight
'til you're in the box, bet it's finger licking good
toss her hair, mass distraction. take a picture, miss the action
heartwarming is a conspiracy, the truth could be what it could be

close your eyes and hold on tight, you wield the wheels of the world tonight
we'll be watching from the backseat, 3D glasses on
marketing, the great illusion, relative to your condition 
sympathetic to your ambition, comforting you in your skin

chorus
Have it your way
your way now

bridge
Cross that line 'til all the feeling's gone
inside you're done for
still you hold on tighter
you know you're always lost
you know you're always lost

I'm climbing inside

outro
Feeling who you are
smile down the boulevard
proud to be king

Everywhere you go, everywhere you go
get it your way 

THEY ALREADY LOVE YOU

verse
There's a hole in your heart that you're trying to fill
but you'll never accomplish it standing so still
and they love you, they already love you

the TV is blasting so loud you can't care
there's a world out there waiting where everything's real
and they love you, they already love you

bridge
Distraction's addictive, your head's entertained
every gorgeous sound, every picture framed
believe in the gossip and in magazines
that you're lost in the crowd and will never be, ever be found
but they love you, they already love you

verse
Stuck in the moment 'cause that's all there is
you're reborn every blink as you take the world in
whatever you've known is always at risk
and whatever you've done is not who you've become
and they love you, they already love you

bridge
The world that you conquer has brought you this far
through your mother's womb and your father's scars
everyone knows that this life is a gift
but you'll never get out what you never put in
and they love you, they already love you

chorus
Believe in yourself, believe in yourself
you can't be lost anywhere in this world
believe in yourself, believe in yourself
you can't be lost anywhere but your own heart

verse
All of these words you mistake for your thoughts
without language you think, without thinking you talk
without past there's no guilt, without future no fear
then you are what you is and you're standing right here
and they love you, they already love you

bridge
The future will come beyond witness or choice
but our human eyes and our human voice
can translate your dreams and your blurred memories
when they ask how it feels and you know what they mean
and they love you, they already love you

chorus
Believe in yourself, believe in yourself
you can't be lost anywhere in this world
believe in yourself, believe in yourself
you can't be lost anywhere but your own heart

bridge
Distraction's addictive, your head's entertained
every gorgeous sound, every picture framed
believe in the gossip and in magazines
that you're lost in the crowd and will never be, ever be found

chorus
Believe in yourself, believe in yourself
you can't be lost anywhere in this world
believe in yourself, believe in yourself
you can't be lost anywhere but your own heart

WHITE LIGHTNING

verse
White lightning strike from the ground up
in the stampede storm of a gold rush
holes in your fence and they're looking through
at what you got, and what you got to lose

chorus
Ain't got time
ain't got money
so you hit the ground runnin'

verse 
Allen Edmonds in a dirt road boarder town
big storm building as the sun go down
80 pounds of weed in a gunnysack  ..he say
one mission: to get there and get back

chorus
I ain't got time
I ain't got money
so you hit the ground runnin'

verse
Hard pan cook you from the feet up
heart to your mind, then everything you love
far away there's a devil sleeping in your bed
'til you meet a man in Gruene says, "you're out of the red"

chorus 
I ain't got time
I ain't got money
so I hit the ground runnin'
