Track Name: Bullet and a Tooth
Bullet & A Tooth

Well lately I’ve been feeling like a bird with bricks for wings
This back has been left broken by the weight of all these tired dreams
Now my anchor’s rusted through and I’m drifting out to sea
Well the ashtray is full, but the bottle’s empty

So drag me to the dance floor, and spin me like a record
Darlin’ all we got is everything to lose
I’ve been haunted by this apathy, and this raincloud that keeps taunting me
Won’t someone cut me free from this noose?
I’ve been caught between a bullet and a tooth

I’ve been chasing down prescriptions with these pints of foolish pride
Looking back on yesterdays when the dew was sweet upon the vine
I’ve been avoiding my reflection afraid of who I might find
Well the houselights are on, but I’m going blind

Tell me it isn’t so…
Tell me you don’t have to go…
Track Name: California (Remixed and Remastered)
California

She shone like sun on the ocean blue,
She danced like light upon the waves
Dreamed a life under neon lights
Drove through the night in pourin’ rain…
Singin’, hey California, I gotta warn ya…
Take your best shot cause I’m firin’ right back
Yeah I’m out chasin’ daydreams and, tastin’ moonbeams…
Yeah, smilin’ big ridin’ the downtown city train…
Singin’ tra la la la
She’s singin’ tra la la la
Let the chips fall where they may,
Gonna smile all fuckin’ day…
Singin’ tra la la la…And then she’s gone…

She pranced her way into Hollywood
She gazed at stars draped in sweet moonlight
Dreamed awake and sang her self to sleep
Basked in spoils of chasin’ good life…
Singin’, hey California, I am upon ya…
I’ll take your best, then I’m must be travelin’ on
Cause I’m out, chasin’ daydreams and, tastin’ moonbeams…
Yeah, smilin’ big watchin’ the world beneath my feet..
Singin’ tra la la la
She’s singin’ tra la la la
Let the chips fall where they may,
Gonna smile all fuckin’ day…
Singin’ tra la la la…And then she’s gone…

She said her goodbyes to Hollywood
Rolled outta town before the sun went down
Drove the night to find this blue eyed boy
Shedding tears knowing she’s homeward bound…
Hey California, It’s good to see ya…
Take my hand, we’ll start this whole thing up again,
We’ll go, chasin’ daydreams and, tastin’ moonbeams…
Hand in hand well watch the world just pass us by…
Singin’ tra la la la
We’re singin’ tra la la la
Let the chips fall where they may
We’re gonna smile all fuckin’ day…Singin’ tra la la la…
Track Name: Here I Am (Acoustic)
Here I Am

Well you chased away my angels, And left demons in their stead…
Left me bruised and beat and blue to fight these voices in my head,
Who whisper, ‘Boy you’ll get what’s coming,’ but life hasn’t killed me yet,
Well Here I Am...Here I Am…

And you’ll never know how long this lasts…Like happy days of past lives’ past,
Now long forgotten memories long let go…So I’m coming home.

And I knew that I would love you, with each beat left this chest,
But I felt myself abandon me, when you’d leave like all the rest.
Well the scrapbook said ‘forever,’ but the glue just never set,
So Here I Am…Here I Am…

And you’ll never know how long this lasts…Like happy days of past lives’ past,
Now long forgotten memories long let go…So I’m coming home.

Well you can cut this heart to pieces and throw salt in open wounds,
But this fighter’s hands keep swinging even after rounds they lose.
And when life, she tries to leave me, I’ll just kick on down her tomb,
Say Here I Am…
Here I Am…

Home to where the wheels still hum
The songs we lived when we were young
Of brotherhood when everything goes wrong, wrong, wrong…
Home to where the music sings
Of highway lines and bloodied strings
Where friends and strangers all just sing alon, long, long…

And tunes still bear the weight of heart
Of heartstrings bent, then pulled apart,
And the best goodbyes are still so hard,
With medleys crafted in the yard,
Then on the road, and under stars,
And back again full circle, and I know…
I’m coming home…
Track Name: Nowherebound (Remixed and Remastered)
Nowherebound

Well I’m a gypsy man,
Peddling his wares down the road.
Well I don’t know where I been
Or where I’m gonna go…I just know.
Well I’m a highway man,
Starin’ out at all those yellow lines.
I got a thousand miles behind me,
And a million more to go..‘til I’m home.

And the train keeps losin steam
Nowherebound with a pocketful of dreams
Give tomorrow for a lifetime of today
Sing my sins for those who pray…

Well I’m a lonely man,
Place I lay my head is tiled and cold.
Well the pain helps pay the bills,
But the booze it never fills…an empty soul.
Well I’m a quiet man,
Hidin’ from the world under these lights
And if life’s lived on a stage,
Then I’ve lived a million days…shy and bold

Now the train is gainin’ speed.
Troublebound with a van packed full of dreams
Give tomorrow for a lifetime of todays
Sing my sins for those who pray…
We’ll leave our sins to those who pray…
I sing my sins for those who pray
Track Name: That Was Yesterday (Acoustic)
That Was Yesterday

There’s something in a full moon, that keeps me awake at night
So I’ll serenade the ceiling with old gunfighter ballads
Where the hero gets the girl.

There’s something in the air here, something that I can’t quite place
And it’s nothing malleable, just a memory or emotion
And I love the smell but I can’t stand the taste…

I used to be somebody else
I used to be so goddamned brave
Nothing could break my heart
Well that was yesterday…that was yesterday…

There’s something ‘bout this bar scene, that keeps me out all night
And all my friends they act concerned, my candle’s all but burned,
Am I burning out?

And I’m wondering if you’re wondering, if I’m coming by tonight
Well just to give you a fair warning, I have been sinking
Into the deepest shades of blue…

I used to be somebody else
I used to be so goddamned brave
Nothing could break my heart
Well that was yesterday…that was yesterday…

Tomorrow I’ll wake up in some other part of town, sleeping on someone else’s couch
Living in someone else’s dream…

This isn’t like me, this isn’t like me
This ain’t how it’s supposed to be…
This isn’t like me, this isn’t like me
This ain’t how it’s supposed to be…
This isn’t like me, this isn’t like me
This ain’t how it’s supposed to be…
This isn’t like me, this isn’t like me
I used to be somebody else…
Track Name: Wander Round
WANDER ‘ROUND

WELL COME ON IN, THE FIRE’S WARM
BUT IT’S DOING NOTHING FOR THIS STEELY HEART
LET’S RAISE A GLASS, MY FRIEND, AND WAIT HERE FOR THE SUN,
‘CAUSE THERE’S BROKEN-HEARTED MEMORIES IN THE DARK

IT’S GREAT TO FEEL THE ROAD AGAIN
THANK GOD THE BARS HERE DON’T SHUT DOWN ‘TIL VERY LATE,
‘CAUSE I REALLY DON’T THINK I COULD FIND SOME REST TONIGHT
AND IT’S FAR LESS LONELY SLEEPING IN THE DAY

I’LL SING SOME SONGS, THEN I’LL WONDER ‘ROUND,
YEAH, I’LL WANDER ‘ROUND TONIGHT…
‘TIL DAYBREAK COMES, YEAH I’LL WANDER ‘ROUND,
YEAH, I’LL WANDER ‘ROUND TONIGHT…

WELL WHAT’S THAT SONG YOU WANNA HEAR?
I’M NOT SURE OF THE CHORUS, BUT I KNOW THE VERSE
AND I’LL PLAY YOU EVERY SONG I KNOW UNTIL MY VOICE GROWS COLD
TO BE ALONE TONIGHT WOULD BE THE WORST

AND WHEN THEY FINALLY SHUT US DOWN,
I’LL SAY GOODNIGHT AND SAUNTER TO THE ALLEYWAY
OUT TO THE STREETS TO WHILE MY TIME AWAY
‘CAUSE IT’S FAR LESS LONELY SLEEPING IN THE DAY

I’LL PLAY SOME TUNES, THEN I’LL WONDER ‘ROUND,
YEAH, I’LL WANDER ‘ROUND TONIGHT…
THINKING OF YOU, YEAH I’LL WANDER ‘ROUND,
YEAH, I’LL WANDER ‘ROUND TONIGHT…

I KNOW I’M BROKEN LIKE A TUNE
THAT’S BEEN PLAYED WAY TOO MANY TIMES AND OVERUSED,
AND THAT’S JUST THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT THE WAY YOU’RE IN MY HEAD,
AND I’M JUST SO TIRED OF HURTING OVER YOU.

SO I’LL FILL THIS GLASS AGAIN TO YOU
AND I’LL SING UP TO THE HEAVENS ‘TIL THE NIGHT IS DONE
‘CAUSE I DON’T THINK I’LL BE GETTING ANY REST UNDER THIS MOON
AND IT’S FAR LESS LONELY SLEEPING IN THE SUN
