Track Name: Bamboozled
take off those boots of red
lift up that homemade cape
come in now through the door
tell me what are you waiting for?
we wanna taste your truth tonight
and I hope it makes you feel alright
you're gonna get yourself bamboozled
All night long

your face it tells a tale
all trash talk with your friends
'pocalictic losers whole
your eyeballs rock and they roll
still drunk from Friday night
Jesus man you sure do look a sight
is this what your body needs
tell me did you get your relief?
or will you fuss and fight after midnight?
or will you scream and just cry at the daylight?
you're gonna get yourself bamboozled
All night long

go on then say that piece
high as a raving priest
go to it break the wall
howl at the bolted door
with hands around their necks
as stupid as all the rest
your history lesson proves
you can't make up all of those rules
you're gonna get yourself bamboozled
all night long
all night long
Track Name: The Big Picture
take me in the morning that’s what she said
take me in the evening or I’m better off dead
lover you do me anytime I’m out of my head
I’m not trying to fool you honey that’s what she said

take a look at the big picture
try not to let it out of reach
take a look at the big picture
it’s time to practice what you preach

now I won’t take advantage of a girl in distress
although you surely know I love a gentle sweet caress
seems to me my life’s already in enough of a mess
just what happened later honey you’ll have to guess

but ooh can I get me some salvation
just enough to get me through the week
the righteous man can live forever
stealing courage from the needy and the meek

Jesus, get me outta here! that’s what he cried
take me to a safe place Lord and keep me alive
brother I’ll lift you outta here was all I could say
take me by the hand and I believe we’ll find a way
Track Name: Dakota Red
shall we go to the Dakotas?
cos I think I know the road
I guess you're just a little too young but
we should go before I'm too old

we can pass by old Wyoming
maybe see us a cattle drive
we can drop by Devils Tower
there's no way to get inside

from Billings down to Bozeman
there are mountains on every side
see the moonlight in Montana
loose our shadows at Big Sky

smell the cinnamon and the cotton
only when it rains
I could fly across the ocean
travel on the plains
Track Name: Coffeecan Telephone
talking to my baby on the coffee can telephone
yeah I’m tired and I’m lonely and I don’t want to be alone

you can't get too far from the kitchen with one of these things
you can't get to the car from the kitchen in one of these things
'cos you won't get a signal if the bannister breaks the string

I said whooee baby, you almost drive me crazy
God said the devil made me but he sure do want to save me
talking to my baby on the coffee can telephone

roll me down the river cos there's something blocking the road
'cos my baby is my baby and you know he's only five years old
Track Name: Baby I Love You
if you want my loving
if you really do
don't be afraid just ask me
you know I'm gonna give it to you
oh and I declare
I want to see you with it
stretch out your arms 'cos little girl
you're gonna get it
cause I love you girl
ain't no doubt about it
baby I love you,
I said I love you, I love you
I love you, baby I do

if you feel you want to kiss me
go right ahead I don't mind
all you got to do is snap your fingers
and I'll come running I can't lie
oh what you want
you know you got it
I'd deny my self
before I'd ever see you without it
I love you girl
and there ain't no doubt about it
baby I love you
I said I love you, I love you
I love you, baby I do

someday you might want to run away
and leave me sitting here to cry
but if it's all the same to you honey
I'm gonna stop you from saying goodbye
Track Name: Dark Powder
when the clouds beat the sunshine
it's a gentle decline
I didn't know who had the problem
but it turns out that it's mine

my proclivities they are legion
and so varied in their ways
and they are the means to keep reminding me
that centre on my shame

my temper's caught up in a ring fence
The hell with being dry
feels like life is an asylum
except for cocaine, coffee and wine

and ceaselessly the optimist
but never to begin
to seek the truthful reasoning
that might just let me back in
Track Name: Loveslide
where the truncheons swing
and the pain is king
there's a land that's so lean and hungry
what lies behind their eyes you never realised

where the birds don't sing
and the angels fear
in the deepest and darkest places
what lies behind their eyes you never realised

Without that loveslide you're fever
you're burning up my blue blue skies
without that love slide you're fever
what lies behind their eyes you never realised

where the main is fear
and the clouds obscure
there is hope in unlikely places
what lies behind your eyes I never realised

without that loveslide you're fever
you're burning up my blue skies
without that love slide you're fever
what lies behind their eyes you never realised
