Track Name: All Week
Don't wake me when I'm tired
Caress me when I sleep
I'll give you what your heart desires
Even if it takes all week

No ID required
Let the gates flood
In with the fleet
Into the night we’ll conspire
In the end well form the leak

Turned around
It's all comin down

Bombs away
I didn't really wanna sleep today


I caught you and retired
I know those folks won't catch up with this
Not running with the pack for hire
I bet the warrant outweighs the risk

Run down the day in the red hot sun
Speed up and perspire

Turned around
It's all comin down


Bombs away
I didn't really
Didn't really
Didn't really wanna sleep today
Track Name: Salt
The salt in my step
Won't leave me tomorrow
By my own design
Beg plead and borrow
Cast off my shoes
Bite my tongue
Sing the blues

This is the time of a great deception
Keep your eyes to the sky
Don't lose your direction

Ships cast off
Anchor me down
Sinking sand
Candy land
Feet don't fail me now
Feet don’t fail me now

Find a way
To be kept at bay

Taking for tomorrow
Once was promised today
Track Name: Parasite
When the lightning struck
And the lights were low
Like the hard rain hitting on your window
We were two of a kind
storming up kind minds
Get up and get ready to go

Callin topsey turvey
Give a Hurley burly
Thank your mother
Yours and mine
It was just prepared
If you'd've only been aware
Then you would've known

It's like the American dream
Or trapped somewhere in between
Hither near or far
How'd you do
Would you doe see doe
With a Carolina cougar
Knocking at your door

When you need it most
Why does your host
Feel more like a parasite

I came and left
Now back from death
Gonna make you get it right

To make you get it right

A plush toned seat
With a body to beat
And she's set on over drive

Drivin all over your heart
Track Name: Kang Gang>Dancin' Feet
Kang Gang


Amazed and confused
Not alone and never blue
Even by yourself
Oh even by yourself you'll find the groove

The sand in your toes
The smell that's on your cloths
Shakedown Street is getting down
In a bad part of town

The Kang gang is comin for ya
I see them on the rise

The Kang gang is comin for ya
Dancing by your side

The Kang gang is comin for ya
Grooving to your side
Grooving for your life
Groove until you die

The storms came storming in
The Kangs gave people gin
And they partied that rainy night away

Crazed by a muse
The trees alive
And the lit is fused
Not quite by yourself
Oh not quite by yourself we're on the move

The band is getting close
Let's storm the stage
And give a Kang gang toast

I said this is for my people
Let the rhythm feed your soul

The Kang gang is comin for ya
I see them on the rise

The Kang gang is comin for ya
Dancing by your side

The Kang gang is comin for ya
Grooving to your side
Grooving for your life
Groove until you die

Dancin' Feet
Black cat’s foot path
Leads to the distance
Like a shadow of the night
And hidden safely
In my pocket
The secret to my delight

Hold fast to the ground beneath
Your dancing feet
To and fro they come and go
Just try to keep up with the beat

Centered all in time
The lights flash with ours in mind
The call from the captain
With his job on the line

Hold fast to the ground beneath
Your dancing feet
To and fro they come and go
Just try to keep up with the beat

For the siren did ring
And the dogs released to the sent
Of the patch of clothing
The captain found on the fence

Hold fast to the ground beneath
Your dancing feet
To and fro they come and go
Just try to keep up with the beat
Track Name: Take The Wheel
A man skipping town with no roof on his ride
Drives a 6 flat quarter mile
His hair slicked back
And the wind in his eyes
There's no turning back for a while

I said, Oh that man
Well I thought you would know
Dark eyes
He must have left here an hour ago

Copilot can you press the steel
Say hey I can take it
Take the wheel

He cleared the room as a storm comin in
Temperatures a dropping like the kids in there did
And when a man a came a knocking all they did there was sit
Not a gun retaliation just a bone to pick

Copilot can you press the steel
Say hey I can take it
Take the wheel

Had no clue until reality set in
Off the devils dues awe that evil emotion
Condemned by what could have been
Now he's in a white roomed asylum with just a pill to take

Copilot can you press the steel
Say hey I can take it
Take the wheel
Track Name: The Heathen
Heathen on the highway
Tire tracks from the shoulder on
And the body in my back seat
Shoulda never trust that bag of bones

Lights on the freeway flicker
As the mile marker counts me down
There's a ticket on my window
That don’t surprise me any how

The tires are flying
Don't get left behind
Cuz when the fire dies
I won't be there in your eyes

I said look
What's there to do
I got two brown eyes
And their looking for you

Rollin down the road
I'm feeling tired
I'm feeling old
Here we go

Bumps and pot holes
I'm feeling high
I'm feeling low
Here we go

Heated in the ash tray
Was a bullet and a Marlboro red
She was cut up in the back seat
With a bounty on her head

She had a bone of contention
And thought that she should mention
She had her phone in her pocket
And the cops she's about to call it

Rollin down the road
I'm feeling tired
I'm feeling old
Here we go

Bumps and pot holes
I'm feeling high
I'm feeling low
Here we go

Rolling down the road
I'm feeling bad
I'm feeling cold
Here we go

Bumps and pot holes
I'm feeling high
I'm feeling low
Here we go
Track Name: Testify
Testify
By the light of the moon
With the open earth
And not the silver spoon

Electrify the night
Let it not be consumed
Sound it out to the letter
And the Spirit of the groove

The pendulum is swinging soon

Testify
And give up the truth
You cannot control your body
The way the rhythm makes you move

The courts in session
So gathers round
The music will possess you
Surrender to the sound

You feel the room balance in tune
See the world in full bloom

When lady justice
Leaves the room
Know your hurry
On the way to the moon

Anesthetized
Lined up in ones and twos
Collected minds
Make a choice win or lose

Testify
That you cannot consume
That poison shit
They put in your food

The courts in session
So gather round
The music will possess you
Surrender to the sound

See the world in full bloom
A new dawn is coming true
Lick jam drums

Testify
By the light of the moon
With the open earth
And not the silver spoon

Electrify the night
Let it not be consumed
Sound it out to the letter
And the Spirit of the groove
