Track Name: Steel Crazy
“Steel Crazy”

Oh, one two three four five six seven I’m walkin while I’m thinkin
And my mind is set on you
We always have the best of times when the sun is sinkin
But now the sky is blue
I remember last night when we stayed up late just talkin
We both had other plans but nothing ever happened
I’ve got a cold cup of coffee
As I’m headed out the door
And I’ve got myself a headache
Left over from the night before
And I’m still crazy
Still crazy over you

Oh and still there’s just one thought in all of this confusion
Yeah my mind turns back to you
I thought it funny how you’d never seen the ocean
From the view above the dunes
And I’m just still not sure where all this is going
But I woke up with you in my mind this morning
And so I don’t know where we’re going
But there’s plenty to explore
And I feel like time is wasting
I only wish that we had more
And I’m still crazy
Still crazy over you
Track Name: Party @ Stalin's
“Party @ Stalin’s”

A silver head served on a silver platter
Exquisite rugs to cover all the blood splatter
How fancy are the goblets from which we drink
Oh, the guests are getting more than what they think

The band is forced to play the red leader’s favourite tunes
Simpler than the rising of the sun and moon
They only played three chords in the progression
Such was the comrade’s favourite obsession

They never see it
Until it’s too late
And this is what we’ve gotta say

How great is the comrade’s palace
Oh the parties inside they just never end
So grab a platter and a gold-encrusted chalice
Come and be the leader’s friend

All the peasants looking through the window
Yeah they just want to be part of the dinner and show
Kinda like the critters from Orwell’s Animal Farm
Yeah they just wanna catch the leader with their charm

But they never see it
Until it’s too late
And this is what they gotta say

Oh that nobody ever leaves the leader’s party
The guards ensure it ends quite bloodily
And every party ends right in the same way
But here’s what the leader wants you to say

How great is the comrade’s palace
Oh the parties inside they just never end
So grab a platter and a gold-encrusted chalice
Come and be the leader’s friend
Track Name: Sleepless Nights
“Sleepless Nights”

I thought there could be something here
But she knew how to get the prize
I was the shy one with all those fears
She was the one girl with fearless eyes
Ooh girl, all these sleepless nights
All I ever find is
Tossing turning all night long with you on my mind

I took you to the symphony
I knew right then that this could last
Our love grew stronger ‘tween you and me
The time I’m with you goes by so fast
Ooh girl, all these sleepless nights
When you’re not by my side I’m
Tossing turning all night long with you on my mind

Seeing you like this it makes me sad
Whatever happened to the time we had
You push me from you, I want to help
Put down these stresses and run with me
Ooh girl, all these sleepless nights
When you’re not by my side I’m
Tossing turning all night long with you on my mind
Track Name: Bayous
“Bayous”

Going down to Houston
Going to my home
There’s no sayin how I’ve been
Away and on my own
And I never knew it
‘Till I went away
Just how much I missed it
This hot and sweaty place
Oh the bayous of Houston
Doesn’t matter where I’ve been
When I sit down under that old bridge downtown
Then I know I’m coming home again

I never knew somebody
To feel the way I do
But I’m sure there’s something
That feels this way for you
I’ve been to the edges
Of the world I know
When I see their waters
I feel I’m back at home
Oh the bayous of Houston
Love your brackish waters brown
Feel like no one loves you quite the way I do
I won’t ever let them put you down

Going to the bayou
Got ourselves some wine
There ain’t nothing we gotta do
Got ourselves some time
There’s a full moon rising up above the road
Yeah I’ll take this with me everywhere I go
Oh the bayous of Houston
Lord I love waters brown
Feel like no one loves you quite the way I do
I won’t ever let them put you down
Oh the bayous of Houston
Doesn’t matter where I’ve been
When I sit down under that old bridge downtown
Then I know I’m coming home again
Track Name: Buffalo Kids
“Buffalo Kids”

I know they’re talking
Bout all the things I’ve done
But now I’m lookin
For a place where I can run
Cool breeze coming down slowly
Round the canyon way
I’m free, but barely
No place where I can stay

I’ve been out running
So long I can’t say when
I want someplace sunny
Someone to call my friend
Cool breeze coming down slowly
Round the canyon way
Someday I’ll stop runnin
But not today
Track Name: All Hail the Trashman
“All Hail the Trashman”

(all hail the trashman)
Riding down the street in a great big truck
Every couple feet gotta pick stuff up
Don’t know where my route leads me
Trash as far as the eye can see
You might call me a simple man
But I work as hard as I can
Doing all your dirty work for you
All hail the trashman

(all hail the trashman)
Clean the streets from where I came
Think I don’t care much for change
Spend a day working in my boots
Makes you see what we’ve got to lose
You might call me a simple man
But I work as hard as I can
Doing all your dirty work for you
All hail the trashman
Track Name: Set Your Sails
“Set Your Sails”

You’d better set your sails high
You’d better hope that the wind is strong
Pray to the moon for a shiftin tide
Or else you won’t be sailing long

The fleet’ll be here in the morning
The greatest ships of the admiralty
Sent here on the highest order
To protect the trade company

But the tides have turned against us
As the royal fleet draws near
Draw your swords and load your muskets
We’ll make our final stand right here

I guess this battle’s the first of many
Better get used to the life at sea
Cause I know that I’ll keep on runnin
As long as they’ll keep on chasin me
