Track Name: Nemes - Blues
Walkin down the track
guitar on my back
wonderin where the road's gonna take me next
devil had a plan
fiddle in his hand
told me I would sing for his rock and roll band
well I was born with marks
little tiny scars
shaped just like the hole on my guitar
Well I was born to sing the blues

Man that body stunk
threw it in the trunk
buried myself in that desert sun
well I would die with marks
many tiny scars
teach me not to mess with the devil's guitar
well I would die to sing the blues
I was born to sing the blues

There's a ghost inside of me that I can't shake loose
I was born to sing the blues

I was born with marks
little tiny scars
shaped just like the hole on my guitar
There's a ghost inside of me that I can't shake loose
Robert Johnson's back and he walks in my shoes
I was born to sing the blues
Track Name: Hooray
I'm the least with looks
the most with words
the best at making myself sound
Like I don't know
what's coming out, what's coming out
I'm the least with words
When she walks by
I wrote it down cause I know
That I can't sing it to her
No I can't sing it to her

She runs around with her head in the clouds
But no one to share the view with
I sit alone with my celluar phone
But no one to call on it
All she wants is the man that stole her heart
And all I want is to give it back to her

So tell me you read sheets
Cause my heart skips a beat
whenever you walk by
I wrote it down
In perfect harmony
you wanna know where my heart's gone?
Well look at the page
Every note in her direction
Where I just can't stay
Track Name: Junk Mail
I'm so tired I'm so lost
since the day you went 2,000 miles across that deep blue ocean
and I try my very best
but it's so hard to rest my weary head among all of this commotion
I don't want you to end up just another sad song
I want this one to stay on a bright note
So just keep this simple melody in your head and in your heart
and I'll sing it soft in your ear when you come home

Do you remember
the last time I saw you in mid september and
the last time I held you
I wish that moment could've lasted forever
I can't forget
when you said
that you're not done with me yet
You wiped the tears away from your green eyes glistening in the sunset
I don't want you to end up just another sad song
I want this one to stay on a bright note
So just kiss me through the camera lens and I'll wish you a good night
and I'll fall asleep and dream of when you come home
When you come home

I don't want you to end up just another sad song
I want this one to stay on a bright note
So just keep this simple melody in your head and in your heart
and I'll sing it soft in your ear so that no one else can hear
I'll sing it soft in your ear when you come home
Track Name: elociN
Well I went down to the liquor store to see if there was something I could drink
Well I bought myself a bottle and I poured it down my own kitchen sink

Well I went down to the record store to see if there was something I could sing
I said “I only know a couple chords but maybe you could help me”
They said “we ain't got what you're looking for, in fact I think we're closing”

Well go on and wipe those subtle curves and hope to God that paint don't chip
Well go on and tell yourselves you'll live forever; your lives won't end
An outline of a white guitar with music notes behind it
I put a cole into your paper heart, I took a drag and I smoked it

Well I went down to the library to find myself a book
As I sat down to read it I saw my heart unhook
It had a picture of you inside
When I looked at it, I damn near cried
Cause I know you're closing and I know you're not coming back now
Track Name: Dreams
Dreams, no one ever falls in love like me
If you knew you'd wanna kick and scream
Cause no one ever falls in love like me

I've lost a lot of notes from everything I've ever smoked and
I've lost a lot of friends, they've moved away but left their love and
I still choke on every word I ever wrote for her so
I don't wanna know if she's found another boy to sing to her

In my dreams
no one ever falls in love like me
If you knew you'd wanna kick and scream
Cause no one ever falls in love like me

I've found a lot of hope in everyone that I have known and
I've found a lot of hurt in every thought I waste on her and
I still choke back a tear or two every now and then but
I don't wanna know if she's found another boy to sing to her

In my dreams
Don't you ever fall in love with me
Cause music is my only girl and
She, she don't like to share with anybody else
Track Name: Whiskey
Oh sweet whiskey you're the only girl that wants to kiss me

We might get swallowed by the sea
Before ever our lips meet
Before we ever get to be
and you, I know you say that I'm bad news
But my heart's black and blue
From no one else but you
It doesn't matter what I do, I'm always coming back to

Whiskey
you're the only girl that wants to kiss me
i'm all alone and I know it's all that goddamn whiskey

Oh miss Murphy
You're the kinda girl that wants to hurt me
I'll sit alone and watch my love burn, oh miss murphy
Doesn't matter what I do, cause i'm always coming back to you
yeah yeah, yeah yeah.
I'm always coming back to you
Track Name: Say A Prayer
say a prayer for the poor in spirit
say a prayer for the heart stricken with grief
say a prayer for the man who's plagued by hopelessness
and if you get a chance just say a little prayer for me

ill say the prayer of the faithful farmer
ill say a prayer to sow in with the seeds
ill say a prayer to fertilize the rocky soil
but when the winter comes just say a little prayer for me

the light at the end of the tunnel is dying out
and its hard to keep your sanity without it
but sooner or later my friend
the sun will creep in again
so don't turn back, give up, or give in to doubt just yet

say a prayer for the one lost in darkness
say a prayer for the light you cannot see
say a prayer to get you through this time of hopelessness
and if you get a chance just say a little prayer for me

say a prayer as we're climbing up our mountain
say a prayer as we ride the sun right into the sea
say a prayer cause even tho you might not see us
we're still there so say a little prayer for me

say a little prayer but make it big for me
Track Name: Beam in the Track
Well we're just another beam in the track
No one would remember us even if they wanted
we're just another sidewalk crack in the world's winding road
We're just another beam in the track
The trains passing over us faster than we know it
It's leaving and it's not coming back
Well we're just another beam

Well an eagle burst off a cliff to fly
Out into that bloodstained sky
Well the sun ate him up in her glorious flame
And he's never coming back and I think it's safe to say that he's

just another beam in the track
No one would remember him even if they wanted
he's just another sidewalk crack in the world's winding road
he's just another beam in the track
The sun's setting over him faster than he knows it
he's leaving and he's not coming back
Well he's just another beam

Well a peaceful old lady tells me her story
95 years in the same weathered skin
Now she sits alone in her retirement home
living in her memories before she has to go, well she knows she's

just another beam in the track
No one would remember her even if they wanted
she's just another sidewalk crack in the world's winding road
she's just another beam in the track
Crackin and splinterin and damn straight she knows it
she's leaving and it's not coming back
Well she's just another beam

And all these people runnin' round
well they're just mirrors
reflecting what I want to see
But I know someday they will fade away
I know they'll fade away from me
Because...

I'm just another beam in the track
no one could remember me even if they wanted to
Track Name: Um, Ok Song
Shut the fucking door
I don't want them looking at me while I sing anymore
and I won't tell you how to waste your precious time
I just wish you'd share in this joy of mine
and if you could
you'd see me every night
singing to your picture hoping it would come to life
I wrote this song duet on the piano
so we would have to sit close again

Her hands go high
My hands go low
I close my eyes
and I let go of you
Are all I want
to see right now
and you are all I need
to hold right now

I hope this song will make you smile
and maybe we can wait a while
before we have to say goodbye

Shut the fucking door
I don't want them looking at me while I sing anymore
and this is more than I can take I need you here when I awake
so close the door and turn the key
and close together we'll be free so please
shut the fucking door
I don't want them looking at me while I sing to you.
Track Name: Don't Flush Me Part 2
They're gonna bury me in a guitar case
They're gonna marry me to a rattlesnake
She's gonna dig her fangs into my face
and never let me go

Tonight the fireflies remind me why
I'm surely gonna die
a death fit for a sinner
Singing songs fit for a slave, i've been hanging here since winter
But i've been dying here for days, I've been dying here for days
Well I've been dying
Are you dying?
Yes I've been dying
We've been dying to live

Well I went up to a mountaintop and I
saw you shining like the sun and I
knew you were the only one for me
and from the confines of those city streets
I could feel you guiding me
through the darkest nights and the deepest seas
Right back into your arms
Track Name: Don't Flush Me
The doctor said we'll put you back together boy
you know you won't from being plain and simple to black and gray yeah
Your arms came off your legs came off you look just like a toy you know
but I will put you again together

when I die bury me
underneath a tree
and let it grow
and let it fall
and on that day you'll make guitars from

And I have learned to stay away from drugs they just change me to black and gray
And I have learned to stay away from girls cause they will only break my heart at the end of the day
stay away from music. Its just a tool that the devil will use to get you when you go yeah
stay with me love
stay with me love

when I die let the worms chow down on me
so then the birds can eat the worms
and that day i'll be free
to fly away
from all of my pain
