Track Name: City Haze
My back is to the wind
My boots are sinking in
Cause this day just goes on and on
To you I never cry
So I blindfold my eyes
This pain just seems to be too strong
And a voice heard down below
Said to stick to the road
Now I walk harder than ever
But I steered right to the left
Through the woods and through the grass
I finally found where I was going

And now I'm home
A better world tucked in the trees

A concrete city maze
Ruled by a musty haze
But that don't stop people from going there
So I just follow the lines
Where it leads I'll know in time
Cause I've just had enough of this fuckin shit
Don't try and follow me
This road was built for me
So I'll see you when I'll see you
If we don't meet again
Cheers and take care my friend
I'll see you sometime down that dagger road

And now I'm home
A better world tucked in the trees
Track Name: Buck 20
Well it seems like it was just yesterday
A nice home cooked meal and a cold beer waiting for me
But she upped and left and took the cold beer back
Threw all my shit in a burlap sac
and lit it on fire and dragged it down the free way

So I grabbed my bike and gave her parents a visit!
And asked them for at least 40 bucks
But they told me off and released the dogs
And the ground was soft and that fuckin' log
Long story short 38 stitches in my ass

Well she can't think that she can get away with this
So I went to her friend Jenny's house one night
When I said my name I got pepper sprayed
She called the cops and ran away
and ended up in a bush of prickly ash

Now why does she wanna have nothin' to do with me?
Well maybe it was that one gambling night
Well I spent her cash watched girls undress
Smoked dope, drove drunk smacked hookers ass
And came home right fuckin looped and on cocaine

She screamed and swore and tore the place apart
And I tried to explain the best I could
She wouldn't see my side so I caved and lied
Said the boys treated Tony it was all a surprise
And the coke and the hookers... I had nothing to do with that

Well she can't think that she can get away with this
So I went to where she worked one day
Started singin a song got popped in the jaw
Secrurity called still singing the song
Got robbed beat down a buck 20 to my name

Well she can't think that she can get away with this
So I gave her new boyfriends house a call
Instead of hello I said where's my dough
And that girl yer bangin is a fuckin .... hello? hello?

Well she can't think that she can get away with this
Oh brother I bet you she will
And oh I'll bet she'll get away with this - Jenny I'll see you in hell
Track Name: GDA
All my dreams are lies to me
Each waking day's a shitty sleep
Passed out drunk in a trash filled ditch
Or face planted my nose off a fuckin cliff
I look through the shit that I scrape from my eyes
and the guy in the suit says I don't qualify

So I get drunk again

The chains in the water is what keeps me down
And the smile on my face is really a frown
I flip though the pages that sum up my life
And every fucking word points to suicide
I try and live everyday the best that I can
When I look in the mirror I don't see a man

So I get drunk again
Track Name: Dagger Road
Hidden on that dagger road
A freedom one must take
And hidden down that dagger road
A mans last mistake
But down the road that story told
That this life just gave up
- memories tend to live on
- memories tend to live on

Well smoking smokes and drinking booze
That's what life's about
Cranking tunes still drinking booze
Knock my body out
Down dagger road is where I go cause
Tomorrow's another day
I'll do 'er again and piss my life away
I'll do 'er again and piss my life away

Hail the dead
For the one's who's gone
I'll sing this song
I'll see you in the end

Buried on that dagger road a soul that just escaped
And covered with on dagger road none but a body raped
A fearless cat who never attacks
And a cry lost in the wind
It's just beginning
It's just beginning

Well snorting rails and smashing shit
Is that what lifes about?
Cuddle all in and lets be friends
Well count me fucking out
Cause dagger road is where I'll go
My pride will be my clothes
When it ends no one knows
When it ends no one knows

Hail the dead
For the one's who's gone
I'll sing this song
I'll see you in the end
Track Name: The Deep Rest
At the end of the tunnel lies a reason
And the light creeping in finds a home
Or that's what's said by who I don't know
So we preach and we learn for who and waht? Why? Why?

Well I've stopped giving a fuck a long time ago
And I feel fine
Enough with your structures and your guidelines
The lights the game the dollar the pace
High up a statue of meaning but it don't mean shit
Last stop that long awaited rest
The deep rest

And a hope is to know all is well
And a wish is just a dramatic need
So a line piles up at the gates want this want that
Expect?
A now there's war. Don't let the bombs interrupt your prayers
Your prayers

Well I've stopped giving a fuck a long time ago
And I feel fine
Enough with your structures and your guidelines
The lights the game the dollar the pace
High up a statue of meaning but it don't mean shit
Last stop that long awaited rest
The deep rest
