I wanna be lazy I wanna get rough I wanna feel precious I wanna get tough I wanna be Jesus up on the cross I wanna have visions with each drop of blood I wanna be reckless I wanna be free I wanna be rich and on TV I wanna be god and paint the sky red I wanna untangle the chains in my head But most of all I wanna be driving you insane I wanna have heaven knock on my door I gotta have passion seep through my floor I wanna be old so I don’t care I will be so happy, just to have my share I wanna be weightless, walk on the moon I wanna hear gunfire shot at high noon I wanna be Moses and part the seas and treasure the freedom beneath my feet But most of all I wanna be driving you insane I wanna be driving you insane I wanna be driving you insane I wanna be driving you insane

Piece 02:37
the boy next door seems to have changed he wears fatigues his head is shaved and yesterday he built a bomb hoping to impress his mom he lives in anger and the anger’s real circle round the fire beat the drums, hate is higher find a scapegoat for the pyre call him evil call him liar feed the anger, anger will prevail * He said I got a loaded weapon yeah I got a loaded gun And I won’t hesitate to fire Fire on someone Careful on the street you never know who you might meet is it him or is it me do I have to make him bleed live in fear and the fear is real take it, steal it, push it, sell it it don’t matter here in hell how you feel you’ll never tell stay alive you’re doing well feed the fear, fear will prevail *

Mercedes or Ferrari racing down the road always something happening, somewhere on the globe Extravagance, such a silly game your wildest desires of power and fame Limo to the Hamptons, lear jet to LA private plane to calvin’s, a key west holiday so many big decisions, safari or the cruise always having millions in currencies to choose fun for the rich well off flew air sunshine twice today that’s my husband on his way he bought the airline for his girl you know i’ve seen the whole wide world I like the wine, I like to dine, I like it cause the plane is mine I like the sun, that’s why i’m here, who needs ny this time of year don’t know what to wear now, the emeralds or the pearls apres ski in switzerland or st. moritz or vail nouveau riche, champagne and keep the change always going shopping spends a fortune to look strange fun for the rich filthy rich

Simple Matters get confused mixed up by the tongues we choose what I say and what you hear always differs it’s not clear simple matters in my head get cloudy as the day goes on nod your head yes or no why can’t you decide what’s right or wrong one must change the mask he wears to see how others fit in theirs no one shares one point of view so simple matters get confused simple matters in my head get cloudy as the day goes on nod your head yes or no why can’t you decide what’s right or wrong have a touch of sympathy talking is a tricky thing simple matters get confused clouded by the words we use simple matters in my head get cloudy as the day goes on

No one watching Everyone gone to bed Lemme just get on top Lemme just do you dead * I wanna do ya I wanna do ya right now I wanna do ya I wanna do ya right now Something’s bubbling Inside turning out Lemme just get on top Lemme just scream and shout * I wanna do ya I wanna do ya right now I wanna do ya I wanna do ya right now Oh my body’s aching All my limbs are shaking Everything wrung so tight All I need is one good night **

Somewhere in the mountains I can hear my heart Beating loud and clearly Avalanche will start Wondering why we had to part Somewhere by the river Alone I’m diving in Somewhere in the water I can taste my skin Don’t know ‘bout the shape I’m in Wondering how I’m hanging in *In the morning, in the night In the darkness in the light Wishing for some peace in mind Frightened by desire, frightened by my life Wishing for some peace in mind Somewhere by the train tracks Listening to the wind Ear up to the rail tie Train is coming in Don’t know ‘bout the shape I’m Wondering how I’m hanging in *

Rain 03:47
Rain is falling on my head Washing away all the things you said Now I walk away fresh and clean and the Sun will shine on me again *Rain Wind is blowing across my face Driving your words away Mother nature, she soothes my soul Mother nature, she makes me whole *Rain Snow it gently cools me down Softly covering my shaky ground I forget you submersed in white I forget you each winter night *Rain

You were sunshine to my darkness You were yellow to my black And I’d watch you with your paintbrush And your blond hair pulled back You were so much younger but you seemed so wise And I’d always look for answers in your blue green eyes Your world was like a field all open and wide And I’d watch you in the moonshine basking in the light Like a flower, like a flower in its prime No it’s never ever ever been the same Everything went crazy, everything changed It started with your boyfriend He asked you to get money So I gave you all my money Yeah, I saved you with all I had And when you thought you should just disconnect your phone So everyone who loved you would leave you alone and When you had your child that you couldn’t bring home Cause your junky boyfriend was so stoned You died in my mind You died in my soul No it’s never ever ever been the same Everything went crazy, everything changed No it’s never ever ever been the same No I’ll never look at you in the same old way No it’s never ever ever been the same Everything went crazy, everything changed No it’s never ever ever been the same No I’ll never look at you in the same old way No it’s never ever ever been the same and I Want you back in your sunshine days

Cowboy Poets 05:48
My father was a cowboy My mother was his bride He left her for a couplet He left me with his pride The dust he stirred clouds over The wind howls through my eyes I’d like to stay here with you But I fear his words will die * The Cowboy Poets Carry a gun Their words are their weapons And their songs, unsung The legacy he left me It keeps me all alone And so I now must leave you And travel on my own * The Cowboy Poets Carry a gun Their words are their weapons And their songs, unsung The Cowboy Poets Give you the best Ride through a stanza to the code of the west *
