Lyrics

Racking My Brain

Written By: Eric Eggleston

There’s a star in the sky and the night is falling
No one whispers Tanya Harding
There’s a fear in the house and I must be there
Look up to the sky, and my star is calling

I’m racking my brain wondering why I should ever leave
Love keeps me here now, let’s me escape, why should I leave

There’s mud on my hands and the earth is burning
Who the hell is Tanya turning?
There’s a seed in the earth and I must be there
Look down to the ground, still I’m learning

And all troubles aside, still racking my mind, what could I say
When you called my home, late in the night, feeling the same,
What’s my name, Oh what’s my name

In The Morning

Written By: Eric Eggleston

I opened my mind and man I had a good time
The next thing you know my ass is way out of line
In the morning, wondering

I’ve made up my mind, now I’m a little behind
I’ll be picking you up but I’ll be changing the time
Now you’re crying, in the morning

I’m way out of line
I said, I’m way out of line,
I’m doin’ the time

I can’t live here anymore
I’ll kick my own self out the door
Behind my shadow there’s a wall
And my waterfall will start to flow again

I’m walking the line and now I’m doin’ the time
The next thing you know my ass is way out of line
in the morning, wondering

20/20

Written By: Eric Eggleston

Hey hey I see plenty
Pretty sure my eyes are seeing 20/20
This town’s got fever of tulips
Got one in me hand, see now I’m droolin’
Page down another chapter
Finally got a grip on my ego laughter
Brick wall, bathroom stall
I don’t give a kick if my name’s on your soccer ball

Pleased to meet you, but you do not have a clue

Oh my Ma is off to California
She’s got the good word and she’s gonna stick it to ya
Bill Gates is the running man and if you hold his hand he’s got you all by the RAM
RB’s of the information age
Deep in the game where Rockerfeller set the stage
I’m sure he’s gonna take the fall but when you’ve got a strange hold you take the fall by the balls

Pleased to meet you, but you do not have a clue
I see your name it’s on the display
Why would you call this late?

Carry the weight of all that you need,
And then you subtract it from all that you leave
Come take my hand and walk it along
This way you will have me I know we belong
Can’t help myself from dragging down and crying
