Lyrics

Locked and Loaded

Written By: Losawyer/Geiger

Locked and Loaded

Get your war paint on, it’s time to go another round or two.

I tell the stories that you need, to hear tonight, to get this shit done right,

So fuck ‘em all, and fuck ‘em ‘till it bleeds……well I’m coming

Locked and loaded, Lord I play but I play to win. Locked and loaded my friend.

Yeah, coming locked and loaded. Kickin it down so dive right in.

Locked and loaded again.

Well excuse me, for having an opinion. Don’t wanna rain on your parade.

It’s been a long time now, but you don’t forget how,

to bring a mother fucker to their knees, yeah.

Oh I don’t think you wanna play this game. Shatter all tomorrow.

Well you won’t ever be the same, but remember, I tried to tell you so.

Locked and loaded, Lord I play but I play to win. Locked and loaded my friend.

Yeah, coming locked and loaded. Kickin it down so dive right in.

Locked and loaded again. Yeah yeah.

Locked and loaded. Lord I play but I play to win. Locked and loaded my friend.

Yeah, coming locked and loaded. Kickin it down so dive right in.

Locked and loaded again.

R.I.P.

Written By: Losawyer/Geiger

R.I.P.

Well it was sinful, the way she looked at me. I just could not turn away yeah.

The rules were simple, no room for sympathy. Cash and carry all the way (all the way).

Well it was down and dirty, until the money was gone. So long.

So there I was, without a pot to piss in; broke and broken hearted.

Lord she fooled me from the start yeah.

Oh, I had to get even, for the way she done me wrong.

A black widow bite right through the heart yeah.

If only, I could’ve tried to stay away, oh what can I say yeah.

Well it was down and dirty, until the pain was gone. So long. Lord so long. So long.

So my brothers, it all in what ya know, and it’s not in what ya don’t yeah.

So now I tell you, it’s time to let it go. Well don’t tell me that ya won’t.

Because a judge and jury, well they would not understand,

But that’s just the way it goes, yeah yeah.

Oh don’t let ‘em know. Tell ‘em you were wrong. Oh so long.

Let it go, yeah yeah yeah. Let it go. Tell ‘em you were wrong.

Oh so long. Oh yeah. If ya know what’s good for ya.

The One That Got Away

Written By: Losawyer/Geiger

The One That Got Away

Whenever I look back, on the times in my life.

I see the pain and the heartache, and all the tears that you’ve cried.

I work hard everyday, but at night I can’t sleep.

And all the pictures they fade, but the memories I keep.

Oh look inside my heart, oh and baby you will see,

A man holding onto something that just wasn’t meant to be.

So shine, like stars in the night. It’s time, for me to give up this fight.

Oh you’re everything I wanted, darling what can I say.

Oh I’m still in love, with the one that got away.

Well you took all my dreams, when you went away.

And you threw ‘em down that old wishing well, and that’s where they’ll stay.

Oh I cried like a child, when you broke me in two, yeah.

‘Cause I realized, that baby we’re through.

So shine, like stars in the night. It’s time, for me to give up this fight.

Oh you’re everything I wanted, darling what can I say.

Oh I’m still in love, with the one that got away.

Cobwebs in My Soul

Written By: Losawyer/Geiger

Cobwebs in My Soul

Miles away and far from home, in a crowd but all alone.

Dusty roads and an empty room searching for the path to you.

Blue skies turn to gray every time that I’m away

Emptiness and heartache I can’t hide, just want you by my side.

I drink from streams of misery, cry tears that only I can see.

Without you girl it takes a toll, leaves cobwebs in my soul.

In a darkened room I live this hell, caught under an angel’s spell.

Thought’s are clear but I can’t see that you belong to me.

Lonely nights turn into days and the years just fade away.

Sunset brings an empty moon, I’ll be coming home real soon.

I drink from streams of misery, cry tears that only I can see.

Without you girl it takes a toll, leaves cobwebs in my soul. Oh

Waiting, on the line. Far too, long again.

Waiting, on the line. Far too, long again.

Oh life on the outside is hell and I’m still here again.

Dying inside but I try to get by to the end.

Oh waiting, waiting for you again. Waiting again.

Miles away and far from home, in a crowd but all alone.

Dusty roads and an empty room searching for the path to you.

Lonely nights turn into days and the years just fade away.

Sunset brings an empty moon, I’ll be coming home real soon.

I drink from streams of misery, cry tears that only I can see.

Without you girl it takes a toll, leaves cobwebs in my soul.

Cobwebs in my soul.

Cobwebs in my soul.

Cobwebs in my soul.

Cobwebs in my soul.

No Way Home

Written By: Losawyer/Geiger

No Way Home

I sell my soul to try and make it better but it don’t do me no good.

The fortune teller she told my story, long before I could.

And everyday another turn of screw, so the Moonshine is my friend.

It’s just as well ‘cause it’s hard to tell, when it all comes to an end. To an end.

Well I’ve got Jesus in my heart friend, but there’s Voodoo in my eyes.

And everything they feed to me is covered up in lies.

I don’t need no evil ways, Lord I’ve got my own (got my own).

And I won’t beg for mercy no, when there’s no way home.

And I won’t beg for mercy no, when there’s no way home.

And I won’t beg for mercy no, when there’s no way home.

Same old story a lyin and a cheatn, trying to get what you can’t have.

Either way, ya take it or ya leave it, they try to drive you mad.

Tell me again how to lock it all in, and bleed in the night all alone.

Never say die, good or bad, wrong or right. Even when there’s no way home.

No way home. No way home. No way home. Oh no.

And I won’t beg for mercy no, when there’s no way home.

And I won’t beg for mercy no, when there’s no way home.
