Lyrics

Cm Blues

Written By: Derek Berger

It takes a lie to make me see
What is happening to me
When I've got things on my mind.

And you know you're just as bad
You've lost everything you had
When you put it on that line.

You know it wasn't long ago
When your eyes still had that glow
And you had something to flaunt.

Now there's nothing left to say
Not that you'd care anyway
'Cause you got exactly what you want.

Oh, but you are the fuel to my fire.
You are the only thing that sparks my desire
You are the fuel to my fire.

I wish I had a bowl
So that I could open up my soul
And shine some inner light.

Now I'm wasted again
Slowly killing off my brain
and it's only Sunday night.

Cardboard Home

Written By: Derek Berger

Livin' in a cardboard home
Crazy enough to be alone
Sleepin' out here on the streets
Dreamin' of some flame broiled meats
Give me money and you'll be my friend
Another dollar gets me high again

(Repeats once)

Jalopy

Written By: James "P-nut" Claiborne

She's driving through Beverly Hills in a broke down jalopy
Stepped outside her car looking kind of sloppy
Standing in the street, hair looking wild
Her vulgar expression done attracted a crowd.
Jalopy

Hey crazy lady want to hang out with the "P"?
Better grab your coat, purse and keys.
Hey crazy lady want to get down and dirty?
She said "Where'd you hear that from?"
I heard from a little birdie.
