Lyrics

My Big Dead

Written By: Shane Hamilton

They did it, just to keep me lovin
And all that sick came with it
Open eye's discovered bleedin it internal medication
Just inhale to exhale now, now here comes the big whale
All the faces through memories wiring, now blow the chunks and suck it back now
I feel to breathe the air, sometimes i just dont care
Build it up to knock away the pieces, and see whats left within me
Big pleasures there to take it all for a fast ride, my human head is rollin down a life line, and i dont wanna stop believin
The mornin waits in it's debate, just as the shadows fallen
He spoke the end we're leavin,he spoke the end

And just today... I found My big dead(x2)
Where do you go to find the final chapter(x2)
Far away...(x2)

They did it,... In a blood out ending, this wall that im defending
Broken down in bits and pieces that i will remember
Will the need and i will fail, another big dead it'a just as well
All the fear is love reversed when it stabs deep remember

I feel a cross to bare
Im trying to make it there
Build it up to knock away the pieces, see whats left within me

With all thats happened in this life, there comes a time for changing
To have a faith in touch, that's reaching for the end
In lay of Worlds that hide behind their biggest violent standard
It's all a nothing that creates another man

And just today,... i found my big dead(x2)
Where do you go to find the final chapter(x2)
Far away(4)

They did it.

I Used To Live In Spain

Written By: Shane Hamilton

Kiedo meo
Maybe luego
Eslada mia, besa me' mucho
Yo kiedo tronquilo es lada mia
So ill just stay home for today
Un ciggarillo, no itsa bente
Gusto guitarro, gusto frente
Yo kiedo grande mucho tequila
So ill just stay home for today

Oh i spent the day nestled up within my couch ohhh....
I'll never leave home cause im here to stay, ill never leave this home again
Adious my good friends-----
Here we go---

(the rest of the lyrics are just made up on the spot everytime it is played)

Liquid Red

Written By: Shane Hamilton/Mark Blevins

Tin can, bottle of beer, liquor stores about a mile away from here, slow down hit the gas, dont try to get away so fast
Wheel barrel just outside howd you like to go for a ride

Rip the ripened of the fruited peel away the peel
It' s been two hard years since i tipped the steer, with a high school way no way to hide, i saw an eighteen wheeler and an amtrac collide

Wheel barrel just outside howd you like to go for a ride

And we go, and we stay, and we stay, and we go
We go and we stay and we stay and we go, cause theres too many people in a one man show

Wheel barrel just outside howd you like to go for a ride

Boot scrape, boot scrape, boot to heel, now your bleeding on the floor
Blood is rolling out your eyes your blink is blin by liquid red
Fender bender of the mind, neither party was insured, those sizzlin cells implode and die, by bad blood, sex, drugs and bad food

Wheel barrel just outside howd you like to go for a ride

Ohh... idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
I aint afraid to die

Ohh... idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
idont wanna
I aint afraid to die

Wheel barrel just outside howd you like to go for a ride
Wheel barrel just outside howd you like to go for a ride----------------

keep my baby cool

Written By: calaveras

Well Ive been realizin somethin as the years they pass through
What goes up dont always necess to come down on you
If you keep your head together, look up to the sky
In hopes to not regress if not sobriety's high

Keep my baby cool (x2)

Way up inspire me to heaven with impressionable youth
With poison self inflicted through my brain with the truth
Well im still young in a gravity's hold, that just keeps pullin me around
Till it slides back to my soul

Keep my baby cool (x2)

God awlfuls the man with the plan who try's to bringin me down(x2)

Keep my baby cool (x2)
The lines have all come together to fade(x2)
Fade(x3)

time

Written By: calaveras

Well just pay the bills and pace the halls
The past is history screams from the walls
The guilt that has no time to rest
Well just get it high and give it test
I just dont know

Well i guess it is i just dont know, just why it is i feel so low
My spirit soul went out the door, half of eight is two two four
Ill never know

Time----------------
Goes by, this i know

Been doin much but gettin high, just drink alot stay out all night
The morning is the night before, so i just start to drink some more, Out in the cold
These winters inside the mind, they just steel away the day's keep it all frozen up inside ejected
Rejected back for more, there's not enough but there's just too much shit on my plate, it's all backed up and i need m9ore time to find resist
I just dont know

Time----
Goes by
Yodelay eeeeeeee
yodelay-e-hoo

Time------------
Goes byyodelay
(and more of that....

black nelly

Written By: calaveras

Black Nelly's hopin to change
Everything for the good
She's prayin to god all day
Hopin it's understood

And we're waiting for the big one
Taking on fifty foot waves

It's rumored that black set sail
To bottom out in a deeper well

And we're waiting for the big one
Taking on fifty foot waves

That's it I'm sick of it
It's half of what I'm feelin all the time
Things change that's what they do
It's a damn good shame, this fire burns a hole through Heaven

Black Nelly wants to change------- (x3)

bottle of beer

Written By: calaveras

Well im headed to old Ohio, crossin that Mississippi river bridge
Well ive been to hell and back again, just for to know, what it's like to live

And I know
And I know
Tuesday from tommorrow
And I know
All about you girl
What you were before, what you'll be again and i know

Standin here with an empty bottle of beer
Wondering who and wondering where
All i see today is the blue sky
Wonderin what it's like to be high

And I know
And I know
Tuesday from tommorrow
And I know
All about you girl
What you were before, what you'll be again and i know

One more time shaking down the line
That Memphis train, runs right on time
That cold blue steel rail that keeps them constantly moving
Along their to and fro, into an un-known destination

And I know
And I know
Tuesday from tommorrow
And I know
All about you girl
What you were before, what you'll be again and i know

good night gold night

Written By: calaveras

My goodnight girl
How she rocks my World
And i'll be here when she returns
The leaves are falling from the trees
Thankyou very much if you please
That cactus, that prick, that sticks me

I never loved you anyway, all those things i did say
and those sky's just turned to gray

(chorus)
She's gone, gone, gone gone away--------
She's gone, gone, gone gone away--------

we'll pull em back from outerspace
Where we layed it all to waste
To hell and gone
My polenesian child
how she drives me wild
and i'll be here when she returns

These were the last words that you said
You said them when it all went dead
and those sky's just turned to gray

(chorus)
She's gone, gone, gone gone away--------
She's gone, gone, gone gone away--------
She's gone, she's gone gone away--------(x4)

tricky situations

Written By: calaveras

You never give an inch, your walking on that fence, My mind is burdened with decision.
Your always so intense, you leave me in suspense, my mind is clouded with suspicion,
I don't know what to think i know im on that brink, my soul is twisted with this tension

Tricky little games, tricky situations, reactions to the blame,.. action no shame

I 've played this game before, and when i see the score ya, nobody ever wins it's too late
Cause when we first went out i told you all about, those other girls that i did date
I believed you when you said those lies that you fed, to you i left it to the fate

Tricky little games, tricky situations, reactions to the blame,.. action no shame

Tricky little games(x8)
