"Daylight"

"Daylight"


She's got me tied in a knot. That's what I thought she'd do.
Don't ask me what's on my mind. I'm fine. I'll push on through.
Not much to see on this angry street, so I'll sleep the day away.
Look past my barnacled mind and in time I'll roll the stone away.

While we still have the daylight, I might look these lessons in the eye.
While we still have the daylight, I might become some brand-new kinda guy.

Brass knuckles and birds on a wire retire but no one gets free.
I'd pay to tear these chains away, this steel sympathy.
Cut bait and cold black forty weight, no one can sing for me.
They fall down with grease in their eyes and cry. How could this come to be?

While we still have the daylight, I might look these lessons in the eye.
While we still have the daylight, I might become some brand-new kinda guy.

"Days Of Graduation"

"Days Of Graduation"


Bobby went out for a joy ride with my best girl, left me at the party,
It was almost June and the three-quarter moon illuminated
The rain-soaked streets like a candy wrapper.
I guess that's why Bobby had his lights off,
Tear-assing through them back streets of town,
Where me and Bobby tear-assed so many times before.
Sometimes with my best girl and sometimes Bobby had him one too.

But this night he banked that curve just a little too hard and that 442 went airborne,
Hit a telephone pole and split in two, Bobby's skull was split right in two,
And my girl was pinned in her seat, partially embedded in the dashboard
And for the next twenty minutes the only sound in the night were the sounds of her screams.
And the sound of the wheel still spinning.

In a little while the ambulance came and the sound of its
siren mixed with the screaming girl and the spinning wheel.

But when the story was told the next day at the graduation ceremony,
Everyone said that when the ambulance came
The paramedics could hear Free Bird still playing on the stereo.

You know it's a very long song.

"Dead Drunk And Naked"

"Dead Drunk And Naked"


When I was a young boy I sniffed a lot of glue
Mom sent me to rehab, they told me what to do
We didn't have much money; the lord picked up the tab
They made me write him love songs, sitting in my room

Now I just drink whiskey and drive around my friends
Get a haircut, get a job, maybe born again
And if you're living badly, we'll tell you how to live
Dead, drunk, and naked…

If you're out there listening, I just want you to know
I been doing just fine, psychiatrists tell me so
My scars are patched up; my arms have almost healed
My demons almost tranquilized, my pains almost killed

Me and old Jack Daniel's, become the best of friends
We got all them Baptist's to die for our sins
I know the lord is coming
The South will rise again! (Dead, drunk, and naked)

Daddy used to tell me, everything comes down to what they say about you when you're not around
And I wish that he was here now, I'm sure he would be proud
No one talks about me; the voices are too loud.

So if you come to see me, I'm sure you'll be impressed
By how well I'm behaving and how well I'm dressed
If you come to see me, hope you're coming soon

Dead, drunk, and naked…

"Decoration Day"

"Decoration Day"


It's Decoration Day.
And I've a mind to roll a stone on his grave.
But what would he say.
"Keeping me down, boy, won't keep me away".

It's Decoration Day.
And I knew the Hill Boys would put us away,
But my Daddy wasn't afraid.
He said "We'll fight till the last Lawson's last living day"

I never knew how it all got started
A problem with Holland before we were born
And I don't know the name of that boy we tied down
And beat till he just couldn't walk anymore.
But I know the caliber in Daddy's chest
And I know what Holland Hill drives.
The state let him go, but I guess it was best
Cause nobody needs all us Lawsons alive.

Daddy said one of the boys had come by
The Lumber Man's favorite son.
He said, "Beat him real good but don't dare let him die
And if you see Holland Hill run.
Now I said, "they ain't give us trouble no more
That we ain't brought down on ourselves"
But a chain on my back and my ear to the floor
And I'll send all the Hill Boys to hell.

It's Decoration Day
And I've got a family in Mobile Bay
And they've never seen my Daddy's grave.
But that don't bother me, it ain't marked anyway.
Cause I got dead brothers in Lauderdale south
And I got dead brothers in east Tennessee.
My Daddy got shot right in front of his house
He had noone to fall on but me.

It's Decoration Day
And I've got a mind to go spit on his grave.
If I was a Hill, I'd have put him away
And I'd fight till the last Lawson's last living day.
I'd fight till the last Lawson's last living day.
I'd fight till the last Lawson's last living day.

"Demonic Possession"

"Demonic Possession"


[Chorus]
Demonic Possession
His court's in session
I sign my confession
Demonic Possession

It was raining on the day she told me
Them things that fella sold me
Mama wasn't thee to scold me
No prison or cell could hold me
I still recall the date
I'z probably about eight
When I sealed my fate
You honor I rightly state

[repeat chorus]

Suddenly I had a foot hold
I became such a butthole
I don't need nobody consoling me
No one but the devil controlling me

I can kick ass and talk backward
I hang out with a whole bunch of slackers
And I know I can get some help from him
I listen to a lot of Led Zeppelin

[repeat chorus]

I got so much money I don't need smarts
My records are flying to the top of the charts
And I'm eating in all those fancy restaurants
And Hanging out with Sam Phillips
And I owe it all to him
Oh, the shape I'm in
The devil says the only thing that's buggin him
Is Hell's filling up with Republicans

[repeat chorus x2]

"Do It Yourself"

"Do It Yourself"


My Daddy called me on a Friday morning, so sad to tell me just what you'd done
You tried so hard to make us all hate you but in the end you was the only one
Sick, tired, pissed and wired, you never thought about anyone else.
You tried in vain to find something to kill you
In the end you had to do it yourself.

Who's to blame for the loveless marriage, who's to blame for the broken band.
You ran from life and all of it's pleasures, your own teeth marks on your own damned hand.
Thrown out before the date's expired, you'd rather die than let anyone help,
You'd rather die than take a stab at living.
Nothing would kill you so you do it yourself.

Everyone has those times when the night's so long
The dead-end life just drags you down
You lean back under the microphone
And turn your demons into walls of goddamned noise and sound.

And it's a sorry thing to do to your sweet sister
It's a sorry thing to do to your little boy
It's a sorry thing to do to the folks who love you
Your Mama and Daddy lost their only boy
Some should say I should cut you slack, but you worked so hard at unhappiness.
Living too hard just couldn't kill you
In the end you had to do it yourself.

Living too hard just couldn't kill you
In the end you had to do it yourself.

"Drag The Lake Charlie"

"Drag The Lake Charlie"


Drag the lake, Charlie
Charlie, drag the lake
Lester didn't come home last night
And Wanda's all irate

Better keep your fingers crossed
And hope we find him drowned
Wanda's gonna come and kill us all
If he shows up in town

Drag the lake, Charlie
I heard that he was seen
Cavortin' with ol' shorty
Up at the line again

Wanda's got that goddamn
Pistol in her purse
If she goes on the rampage
They'll have to call the Hearse

Better drag the lake, Charlie
Charlie, drag the lake
Remember what happened last time
When Lester went on the lake?

I heard it took the cleaning crew
Two weeks to clean the bar
They never found that teenage girl
They never found the car

Drag the lake, Charlie
Drag the lake, Charlie
It won't be the first time
But it might be the last

Drag the lake, Charlie
And keep your fingers crossed
And if you're friends with Jesus
Please ask Him to help us

Our best case scenario
Is Lester turns up dead
I'm almost out of Valium
Courage and self-respect

Drag the lake, Charlie
Drag the lake, Charlie
It won't be the first time
But it might be the last

"Easy On Yourself"

"Easy On Yourself"


I can't blame you but it's a shame
you can't cover your ass sometimes.
It's that kind of town and you're so far down you can't get up.
I can't tell you what to sell and how to tow the line
and when to just give up.

Calling out to everyone who tried to run. You tried to run.

Don't be so easy on yourself
'cause this one might be all that you have left.
Rearrange the voices in your head and remember what they said.
Don't be so easy on yourself.

You got it down, you been around
and you won't change your life
for redneck cops and traffic stops and residue
but I can't tell you all the hell they'll put you through inside
and what they'll do to you.

Ten years down the road you'll find you're left behind. You're left behind.

Don't be so easy on yourself
'cause this one might be all that you have left.
Rearrange the voices in your head and remember what they said.
Don't be so easy on yourself.

Calling out to everyone who tried to run. You tried to run.

Don't be so easy on yourself
'cause this one might be all that you have left.
Rearrange the voices in your head and remember what they said.
Don't be so easy on yourself.

"Everybody Needs Love"

"Everybody Needs Love"


Moon beams we can dream on, at the setting of the sun
And the stars we can wish upon, when the working man is done
Sunsets we could cry over, have our trouble's on the run
But more than these miracles above, good people, we need love
Everybody needs the love, love, love
Everybody needs the love, love, love
Everybody needs the love, love, love
Just like they need the sun and moon and stars up above.
And nobody ever found happiness, living their life all alone
I used to walk around like I didn't need nobody, to keep me happy and alone
And one fine day I found myself in trouble, way down without a friend
Along came the love of a real fine woman, said she'd love me 'til the end
Everybody needs the love, love, love
Everybody needs the love, love, love
Everybody needs the love, love, love,
Just like they need the sun and moon and stars up above.
Everybody, everybody needs love, love, love
Everybody, everybody needs love, love, love
Everybody, everybody needs love, love, love
Just like they need the sun and moon and stars up above.
Everybody needs the love, love, love
Everybody needs the love, love, love,
Everybody needs the love, love, love,
Just like they need the sun and moon and stars up above.
Everybody, everybody everybody needs love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love.
Love, love, love, love, love, love.
Everybody, everybody needs love, love, love
Everybody, everybody needs love, love, love
Everybody, Everybody needs love

"Eyes Like Glue"

"Eyes Like Glue"


I see you watching me, your eyes are just like glue
Stuck like glue to every foolish thing I say and do
There's a safer distance still not out of touch
If daddy's quiet it probably means he's thinking way too much

Someday you'll be a man, you'll have a big old brain
You won't need it but you'll try to use it just the same
But it's like any house lonely people roam around
Wasted empty space a maze with only one way out

Nobody ever told me half the things I'm telling you
Even if they had I'd have had the same look that you do
Sometimes you think it and you want to hear it said out loud
If no one else does then it's up to you to shout it out

You'll want to do it all and you'll believe you can
But when the best that you can do becomes all you can stand
You'll know you're just a man when you feel all the weight press down
Next time you're watching me remember that's all I am now
