Animal 03:17
Animal At night I toss, turn, howl at the moon Pills won't work and whiskey won't do I shoot up outta that bed in a cold, cold sweat There's just one thing this old dog can do Jump that fence, break the chain loose I've got the scent and I'm runnin' fast as I can You're the silver bullet, one thing I need, and girl just like that... You set me free Free from the lonely, free from my cage You're my release, my getaway You've got the key From the dead of night you reach deep inside Girl you bring the animal out of me You know how to calm my restlessness Your loving eyes, your sweet caress You've got the goods to tame this wild beast Want me to sit, stay, roll over, play dead? Any command girl, you're in my head Your treats cure my lonesome heart disease Scratch my itch Bring me to my knees Girl I'm beggin' you To set me free Free from the lonely, free from my cage You're my release, my getaway You've got the key From the dead of night you reach deep inside Girl you bring the animal out of me... Jump into these clean sheets feelin' like a man You give me that wink and nuzzle my chin My leg gets to twitchin' and I'm revved back up again Set me free Free from the lonely, free from my cage You're my release, my getaway You've got the key From the dead of night you reach deep inside Girl you bring the animal out of me

Let's Get In It I see a Range Rover runnin' with the keys left in, sittin' out front of this Piggly Wig, The owner's inside and we can run real quick Let's get in it Or there's a swimming hole on my daddy's farm In the next county over, it ain't too far Take our birthday suits and a couple of jars Let's get in it Honey we can sleep when we're dead I see a mess of trouble up ahead Let's get in where no one knows You feel that tingle in your toes That just means we're headed somewhere good Let's get in it up to our necks A little bit of crazy, a little bit of wreckless Some folks say we can't but I think we should Honey, this thing feels a lot like love Let's get in it There's a train that rollin' out of the yard We could sleep right past the late shift guard Hitch a ride in our own little private car Or we could take a little trip of our own instead Go home and slide in my big brass bed Slip under the covers and over our heads Let's get in it Honey we can sleep when we're dead I see a mess of trouble up ahead Let's get in where no one knows You feel that tingle in your toes That just means we're headed somewhere good Let's get in it up to our necks A little bit of crazy, a little bit of wreckless Some folks say we can't but I think we should Honey, this thing feels a lot like love Let's get in it

Between You & Me This ship's got holes Sea legs on weary bones Battle's left her worn, but she's still got sails This trip ain't safe, in fact it's killed better men Still, won't keep me from trying, can't afford to fail Cause it's all that I've got And you're all that I need I'm paying my penance for all the lonely, dark, and crooked deeds But I've still got hope while I'm sailing this ocean in between: Between right and wrong Between good and gone Between you and me Some days it's smashing waves, some days it's calm as death Wish I could see your face, to know where I stand This sea's a lonely place You were my dry land I'm just salt and a soul But I used to be your man Now this is all that I've got And you're all that I need I'm paying my penance for all the lonely, dark, and crooked deeds But I've still got hope while I'm sailing this ocean in between: Between right and wrong Between good and gone Between you and me When you're this far gone The winds of time are blowing so strong Turning back just ain't a choice Cause you're in my head I'm holding on to every word that you said And now I just follow your voice So I'll point that compass north Keep my scope on the horizon I'm gonna make it home I hope you know that I'm tryin'... Now this is all that I've got And you're all that I need I'm paying my penance for all the lonely, dark, and crooked deeds But I've still got hope while I'm sailing this ocean in-between: Between right and wrong Between good and gone Between you and me

Smoking Gun 04:05
Smoking Gun Ashes were rainin' down in Grafton Fallin' from the hottest blaze to ever wake this sleepy town Poor girl, papers claimed she never made it Husband claimed he couldn't save her cause his old truck went and broke down He didn't see it comin' till he heard the people scream... "Wake up the world's on fire She's gone and someone's a liar Everybody's talkin', everybody knows what went down Wake up they're comin' for you They know about the gas can, gathered all the proof And you've got 25 to Life to try and figure it out When all was said and done You're left holdin' the smoking gun" Cause the truth is, that city slicker had a loose fist With the tendency to hit and run to the arms of another sin When that old house was quiet, it left her to her own devices So she spent it pourin' fuel on the flames of her sweet revenge Hell hath no fury, like a woman with a plan And she was singin'... "Wake up the world's on fire She's gone and someone's a liar Everybody's talkin' Everybody knows what went down Wake up they're comin' for you They know about the gas can, gathered all the proof And you've got 25 to Life to try and figure it out When all was said and done You're left holdin' the smoking gun" Some folks swore they saw her the day they put her in her grave Said she was standin' on the ridge with a big smile on her face No matter the truth, God knows she's in a better place Wake up the world's on fire She's gone and someone's a liar Everybody's talkin' but does anybody know what went down? Wake up they're comin' for you They know about the gas can, gathered all the proof And you've got 25 to Life to try and figure it out When all was said and done (What goes around has finally come) When all was said and done You're left holdin' the smoking gun

Makes No Difference I've seen tough and I've seen desperate, Ain't much difference 'tween the two The strong man fights to hide the pain The week one knows is true You can shoot to kill or get down on your knees Makes no difference to me I've had wives and I've had girlfriends, and I lost 'em in the war A campaign of self destruction I don't fight much any more I've seen movers, I've seen shakers, widowers and widowmakers Fate's a bitch, she'll tell you who to be Makes no difference to me If you know me, I ain't one to knock If you're cheatin', you better use a lock Cause my shotgun, he ain't one to talk Someone had to make 'em pay, and you might disagree But that makes no difference to me I've been told that I should write the stories of my life Put those evil things I've done right there in black and white But there ain't no pens or paper here in cell block 33 And that makes no difference to me Cause if you know me, I ain't one to knock If you're cheatin', you better use a lock Cause my shotgun, he ain't one to talk They were on their way to hell, I just helped 'em get some speed But that makes no difference to me Cause if you know me, I ain't one to knock And if you're cheatin', you better use a lock Cause my shotgun, he ain't one to talk Behind these walls as high as Jesus, only death can set me free And that makes no difference to me Yeah, that makes no difference
