“We had a lot of fun putting the artwork together for this record. Our pal, painter extraodinaire, William Quigley, composed the package. I feel the images of the packaging balance well with the very eclectic style of music we were making at that time.“

01. Everybody Clap

Everybody Clap

02. Open Up

they were looking for me when I came to
they were looking for me when I came back
said hey you you're looking very suspicious
I said relax man get off my back
I I I ain't opposed to seeking justice
but you're going about it all wrong
the man you're looking for does not exist
he's just a figment of the higher man's tongue
and they say open up we're coming inside
you can't run so you may as well hide
we got the place covered from head to toe head to toe
open up we're coming inside
what's it feel like to know you're going to die
on the other side of the row
so they took me down to the gallows and this boy he said to me
why do you smile when the rope's around your neck
I said I tell you boy when I get back
I I I ain't opposed to seeking justice
but you're going about it all wrong
the man you're looking for does not exist
he's just a figment of the higher man's tongue
he’s just a victim of the higher man’s tongue
and they say open up we're coming inside
you can't run so you may as well hide
we got the place covered from head to toe head to toe
open up we're coming inside
what's it feel like to know you're going to die
on the other side of the row
hands above your head que le via bien
Step out of line and we'll fill you with lead
how are we to know that you are not a liar
hey don't you see we have a job to do and our job is the law job is the law
you fit the description of a criminal crosser hey
we believe that he is you and that is your flaw
that is your flaw
and they say open up we're coming inside
you can't run so you may as well hide
we got the place covered from head to toe head to toe
open up we're coming inside
what's it feel like to know you're going to die
on the other side of the row

03. Just Like Larry

I'd like to jettison your medicine back to where you came from
you keep your bell and Edison away from my grandson
stand son on your own bone don't forget the home that you came from
don't let them say your name wrong
just like Larry I'll take it to the hoop I make one false move in one fell swoop
and then I pass it to the trigger man bow down to the sound if you still can
131-XHD I got my beautiful dutiful cargo 250
plenty of mess halls and plenty of cat calls
and I can attest to the rest of the best stalls
but never have I ever made a match with sickness
look both ways and dispatch with a quickness
give me some roy and give me some speed gather all around to the world and read on
til you get to the part that's righteous it's an unbearable likeness
131-XHD
I got my beautiful dutiful cargo 250

04. Time Served

hold up the firing line hold up the fire
walk away counting backwards from nine
hold up the firing line hold steady on the trigger's time
walk away counting backwards from nine
holding his breath so to start his own dying
time time served to the ones that left you here
no people here only names soon to be put to numbers so its one in the same
it's anyone's game as long as the fire flickers
the throat stickers they place their bet the trouble is that no one's added it up quite yet
cause when they do when they do when they do when they do
it'll be a riot and the wire is down
hold up for the fury to sound hold up your head from the ground
or they'll keep you on it
your time time served to the ones who left you here
from tower to wall to guard to guard to wall
ever ready for the fire to fall
the confinees haven't seen the sun since the lifers let go of their irrelevant innocence
but long before a single round was shot word spread from block to block to cell block
they're going to take him and make an example of him for the escapees to fear
the incoming of the incoming of the gun oncoming another year
you either die on the inside or trying to get out the choice is yours the choice is here
time served to the ones who left you here

05. Even (Headman)

come now to the edge of the road you can see them all crowding around
soon they'll come in and come up here
let them find an effigy but they'll never find me
head man I live to see you rolled away
they'll never ever ever find me
headman walking right in front of me don't you look in I'm not here you see
dead man told me where I am to hide said he's waiting there where it's all even
even
you can feel them coming up through your heels
and outside misconstrued the search continues
the hidden afraid are never betrayed by the already found and taken away
oh and in a different place
the hands that hold your face are only trying only trying to keep you warm
they'll never ever ever find me
headman walking right in front of me don't you look in I'm not here you see
dead man told me where I am to hide said he's waiting there where it's all even
even
even like me
walk on will we walk on with our heads to the wall
let them find that they'll never find us all
cause they wanted a life less hidden
they wanted a life but I'll never give them part of me
part of me
I will save my right so hard to the ground
til we all lay down til we lay ourselves down
you can feel them
you can feel them coming

06. Passerby

well I'm not crazy like my brother but its the way that I choose
I don’t hang around with a sixpence when I got everything to lose
would you bring my money and take from me all that I was worth
cause I wasn’t worth nothing and I wasn’t yours
oh don't you be a passerby oh won't you sit down and stay a while
cause it's been too long since you been around
sold out man from across the way he thought he heard what he heard you say
hey now man your watch it shines for the bid of a second yields him forty times
oh don't you be a passerby oh won't you sit down and stay a while
cause it's been too long since you been around
don’t wanna be a
woman little child
hey woman hey woman little child
hey woman hey woman
oh don’t ya be a passerby
oh don’t ya leave me alone

07. Carry You

green river flows like grass melting
later it will run black down it's track into an ocean.
she stands on the bridge dim light on her back
well someday I will carry you
I will carry you
I wanna float higher above waves of electric wires
and stare down onto the street I see a drunk with kiln glazed eyes
telling me about the girl I should meet someday
I will carry you

09. How Now

how now

10. Lightning

we hear the dealers with the words that ride the tails of their cigarette smoke
sliding through the tunnels of our ears
those greasy marionettes of real bone and blood
stand on the corner of Washington Square
well our vision was stinging and our eyes were blurring
elevator's got you rising so high seventeen floors you want so much more
there's lightning on the ceiling coming from the corner of her eye
somewhere horses flee from thunder
somewhere the bones of a cat are buried under a garden ya
well there's a radio on broken songs empty digression
it won't be long wont be long til you and me are gone from here
and there’s lightning on the ceiling coming from the corner of her eye
we hear the dealers with the words that ride the tails of their cigarette smoke
sliding through the tunnels of our ears
those greasy marionettes of real bone and blood
stand on the corner of Washington Square
well our vision was stinging and our eyes were blurring

12. Prince of Spades

coming back coming home
the queen of love enters the room silence ensues
to the king what have you done to my life
did you take me for a fool or for a wife I
and the king is in his court counting all his diamonds one by one they do fall
says the queen our pride the prince of spades is coming home
be nice if you could find some time alone
after all he's in line for the throne
and the king is in his court counting all his diamonds
one by one they do fall oh they do fall
so now just get up off your ass leave all your treasures behind
your son is coming home with you to spend time
show him how a good king should be and don't ever forget the day
that you turned your back on him and me
still I stay 

13. Parade Speed

wanna be your bread and butter
wanna be the honey in your jar

14. Headlights

headlights highways
your life collides with mine
oh your life collides with mine
leaving our shoes behind we cross the water
our words flow from mouth to mouth to mouth
like fish seeking dark places
the misty mist it covers covers our traces it covers our faces
so long to what’s done so much times been wasted
so many thoughts been lost on
headlights highways
your life collides with mine
oh your life collides with mine
we're stepping into shelter we’re moving out of shadow
we made some wrong moves along the way
oh we might have strayed
will I forget your face and your fluid gait
will I will I stare into the stillness
this is where I miss you
so long to what's done
so much time's been wasted
so many thoughts been lost on you
headlights and highways
and your life collides with mine with mine
oh your life collides with mine
headlights highways, your life collides with mine
smoke heats the black throat of the chimney
the door is open come on inside

15. Blood

one old man a ten hour day and not a dime to spare
playing on his pawn shop horn and breathing into the air
I've got more coal to fire and another soul to feed
little old lady left the scene about an hour ago
her purse was filled all her silver unsold
little old lady had a mouth but nothing to say
despite her allegiances she has found a way
even a blind squirrel needs a nut yea do rebut that
and if you open up your mouth you better shut that
it's never ever gonna go away I'm homeless God bless good day
would that I were you would I be free
and would that you were me would you burn or flee
oh we went down to sit still oh to sit still
doing time oh the old street
doing fine doing fine

18. Gone

you got your electricity the heat is on high
you can’t keep your eyes away from the TV
you walk outside with your face on the ground
too tired to hear the sound of a child on the rooftops
and he was kicking off slate
do you remember when you were a boy and you were void of hate
because I know a place where the smiles last for days
and the people celebrate at the drop of rain
they last for days
they go outside on the barefooted ground
they can hear the sound
but switch back to the first world the smiling face on a TV
a man walks out of a square house into a square car
and he wonders what happened to me
and don’t ask him where he’s going cause he doesn’t know when he’ll be back
he sits there in his car with the keys in his lap
well have you figured it out have you figure it out
cause I haven’t got a clue
I was crossing the tracks I saw a big yellow light coming for me
what happened to the blinking red lights they must have run out of batteries
and I should stand up for my friends because I believe in them
and if someone puts them down why am I silent till the end
you better smile when I say hi because I’m smiling whenever you’re nearby
well I guess you don’t make a big deal out of anything anymore
and you pass a car turned over on the side of the road
you contemplate a reversal of the roles
but you don’t pull over to help
you’ll forget about it three seconds down the road
well have you figured it out have you figure it out
cause I haven’t got a clue
and I held everything against you because you see
you never held anything at all against me
you better smile when I say hi because I’m smiling whenever you’re nearby
well I guess you don’t make a big deal out of anything anymore
and I was crossing the tracks I saw a big yellow light coming for me
what happened to the blinking red lights they must have run out of batteries
now you just forget about it all cause all your things are gone
gone

19. Spades (Acoustic)

in a place where I belong oh my home
coming back coming home
the queen of love enters the room silence ensues
to the king what have you done to my life
did you take me for a fool or for a wife I
and the king is in his court counting all his diamonds one by one they do fall
says the queen our pride the prince of spades is coming home
be nice if you could find some time alone
after all he's in line for the throne
and the king is in his court counting all his diamonds
one by one they do fall oh they do fall
so now just get up off your ass leave all your treasures behind
your son is coming home with you to spend time
show him how a good king should be and don't ever forget the day
that you turned your back on him and me
still I stay
and the king is in his court
king is in his court
in a place where I belong oh my home

20. Bulls on Parade (Rage Against The Machine)

the microphone explodes shattering the molds
ya either drop the hits like de la o or get the fuck off the commode
with the sure shot sure to make the bodies drop
drop and don't copy yo don't call this a co-op
error rains drenching quenching the thirst of the power dons
that five sided fist-a-gon
the rotten sore on the face of mother earth gets bigger
the triggers cold empty ya purse
rally round the family with a pocket full of shells
they rally round the family with a pocket full of shells
weapons not food not homes not shoes
not need just feed the war cannibal animal
I walk the corner to the rubble that used to be a library
line up to the mind cemetery now
what we don't know keeps the contracts alive and moving
they don't gotta burn the books they just remove them
while arms warehouses fill as quick as the cells
rally round the family pocket full of shells
