Track Name: I Am Lost
Bad luck bad luck I’ve had lots of bad luck
Bad luck bad luck ba-da-ba-ba-ba bad luck
Lookin’ down the road I see cold I see dark I see dread

Lately all my dreams turn into nightmares
My soul an empty pit that can’t be filled
That graveyard dirt you gave me just ain’t workin’
This rage within my guts cannot be stilled

I am lost I am lost are you?
I am lost I am lost are you?

Bad luck bad luck I’ve had lots of bad luck
Bad luck bad luck ba-da-ba-ba-ba bad luck
Lookin’ down the road I see cold I see dark I see dread

I’m worried that the call I made to Cindy
Got disconnected when the lightning hit
I’m worried that this stink I call my life sir
Will end before I find a point to it

I am lost I am lost are you?
I am lost I am lost are you?

Bad luck bad luck I’ve had lots of bad luck
Bad luck bad luck ba-da-ba-ba-ba bad luck
Lookin’ down the road I see cold I see dark I see dread

Did you know my cousin was a jailer?
He killed himself in prison long ago
To me his fate it seems so awful funny
Devoured by the rats so I was told

I am lost I am lost are you?
I am lost I am lost are you?

Bad luck bad luck I’ve had lots of bad luck
Bad luck bad luck ba-da-ba-ba-ba bad luck
Lookin’ down the road I see cold I see dark I see dread
Are you lost?
Track Name: Getting Old
Why do I hate everything new?
Why are my eyeballs sinkin’ in?
You’re gettin’ old buddy you’re gettin’ old

Why is my skin melting like wax?
Why is my hair so grey and thin?
You’re gettin’ old buddy you’re gettin’ old

Is there a devil to return my youth
If I should give him my soul?
And would he even want my poor stinkin’ soul?
No!

Why do I feel so fuckin’ scared?
Why do I cower from sin?
You’re gettin’ old buddy you’re gettin’ old

Why is the light growing so dim?
Why can’t I never ever win?
You’re gettin’ old buddy you’re gettin’ old

Is there a devil to return my youth
If I should give him my soul?
And would he even want my poor stinkin’ soul?
No!

Getting old
I guess I’ve had it
I guess I’m past my prime
Guess I’m way way way over the hill
I’m so old
How did it happen?
How did I get so old?
Give me back my youth Satan please help
Track Name: Let Us Rot
Up on the cross Jesus
Up on the cross Jesus
No one to cut him down Jesus

Most everyone is a coward
Clinging to their dead end lives
Trying to make themselves happy
Buying material things
Trying to keep themselves busy
So that they don’t have to think
About the pain others have gone through
To get them where they are today

Up on the cross Jesus
Up on the cross Jesus
No one to cut him down Jesus

Things weren’t always this easy
People they used to live life
They weren’t surrounded by comfort
They didn’t have soft bodies and minds
Well now we’re just shit for the devil
To trample and rub on his face
We deserve to be punished
We should take Jesus’ place

Up on the cross Jesus
Up on the cross Jesus
No one to cut him down Jesus
Just let us rot let us rot let us rot
Track Name: Give Me Drugs
Give me drugs so I can go outside
Give me drugs I think I lost my mind
Oh I’m scared when I’m not numb

Give me drugs so I can go to sleep
Give me drugs so I can stay awake
Oh I’m scared when I’m not numb

Though life is unbearable somehow you learn to bear it
And all your unhappiness come on you’ve got to share it

Give me drugs so I don’t have to think
Give me drugs so I can concentrate
Oh I’m scared when I’m not numb

Give me drugs and let me live again
Give me drugs I’m desperate for a friend
Oh I’m scared when I’m not numb

Though life is unbearable somehow you learn to bear it
And all your unhappiness come on you’ve got to share it

Give me drugs
Make me numb
Track Name: All Dolled Up
If you want to ride in my stinkin’ car
Get yourself all dolled up
We’ll drive beneath them haunting stars
Get yourself all dolled up

I know that beauty dies everybody’s got to age
But right now you’re the tops
Promise me you’ll never grow up

The engine is a revvin’ and it’s nice and warm
Get yourself all dolled up
A thousand miles an hour past the swaying corn
Get yourself all dolled up

I know that beauty dies everybody’s got to age
But right now you’re the tops
Promise me you’ll never grow up

My greatest fear has always been
Dying in a car alone
But with you by my side
It just don’t matter if I make it home

Gals you look your best when you’re nice and sad
Get yourself all dolled up
Oh tears on a pretty face it drives me mad
Get yourself all dolled up

I know that beauty dies everybody’s got to age
But right now you’re the tops
Promise me you’ll never grow up

Here’s a lonely spot for to stop and kiss
Get yourself all dolled up
Oh that sweet bitter fleeting happiness
Get yourself all dolled up

I know that beauty dies everybody’s got to age
But right now you’re the tops
Promise me you’ll never grow up

My greatest fear has always been
Dying in a car alone
But with you by my side

It just don’t matter if I make it home
We’re burnin’ rubber baby
We’re burnin’ rubber now
Get yourself all dolled up
Track Name: Lonely Man
Time for some sad stuff honey
But don’t cry for me no

Lonely man lonely man I am a lonely man
Lonely man lonely man I am so lonely man
When I say I don’t have any friends I ain’t foolin’
I am a lonely man

I drink in the evening alone
I talk to the four walls alone
I laugh at my madness alone
Always alone

Yeah and I go to the party alone
Then I stand at the party alone
I leave the party alone
Always alone

Lonely man lonely man I am a lonely man
Lonely man lonely man I am so lonely man
When I say I don’t have any friends I ain’t foolin’
I am a lonely man

I walk in the moonlight alone
I go to the movies alone
I sleep in the junkyard alone
Always alone

I listen to records alone
Oh I eat my dinner alone
I dread my future alone
Always alone

Lonely man lonely man I am a lonely man
Lonely man lonely man I am so lonely man
When I say I don’t have any friends I ain’t foolin’
I am a lonely man
Lonely man
Track Name: Strange Dark Night
The train went off the track
The night she took me back
And I cried God have mercy
But God He was gone

I heard the brakes a squeal
I felt the crush of steel
And I cried God have mercy
But God He was gone

Oh what a night oh what a night
What a strange dark night

Boots upon my back
My spine just up and snapped
And I cried God have mercy
But God He was gone

And there my life did end
Alone without a friend
And I cried God have mercy
But God he was gone

Oh what a night oh what a night
What a strange dark night

Oh what a night oh what a night
What a strange dark night
Track Name: Born To Preach
I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
And I sure do love my job

I ain’t never been to no college
And I didn’t get a chance in school
But when Jesus Christ anointed me to preach the gospel
He didn’t leave me no fool

I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
And I sure do love my job

Now there’s a lot of educated preachers
Who are all mixed up in the head
They’ve got their hearts fixed on gold
And are walkin’ around spiritually dead

I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
And I sure do love my job

Well preachers they ought to stick together
But everyone has split
What the church needs right now
Is to regenerate the pulpit

I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
I was born to preach the gospel
And I sure do love my job
I said I sure do love my God
Track Name: Big Trees
Trees big trees outside my cabin door
Trees big trees they hide me from it all
The terrible sight of neighbors
The stinkin’ stench of cars
Trees big trees grow mighty and tall
Track Name: The Only Time
The only time I have any fun anymore’s when I’m drunk
But I just can’t drink no more or I’ll die

The only time I have any fun anymore’s when I’m stoned
But I can’t get stoned no more or I’ll die

And I don’t want to die tonight
No I don’t want to die tonight

The only time I have any fun anymore’s when I’m cheatin’
But I don‘t want to cheat no more or I’ll die

The only time I have any fun anymore’s when I’m hurtin’
But I just can’t hurt no more or I’ll die

And I don’t want to die tonight
No I don’t want to die tonight

Loneliness will drive a man crazy
Ain’t I proof of that?

The only time I have any fun anymore’s when I’m prayin’
But I just can’t pray no more it doesn’t work

The only time I have any fun anymore’s if I’m stealin’
But I just can’t steal no more or I’ll die

And I don’t want to die tonight
No I don’t want to die tonight

Loneliness will drive a man crazy
Ain’t I proof of that?
The only time I have any fun anymore (crazy) (crazy)
Track Name: Trouble At Home
Trouble at home trouble at home
I got some trouble at home boys
You know I got some trouble at home

I guess she don’t like it when I sneak out at night
Swingin’ pretty young girls on my arms
But once in a while even I need some fun
Boy it sure feels good to do wrong
She say she gonna leave me if I don’t straighten out
But I’m happier than I’ve ever been

It’s causin’ trouble at home trouble at home
I got some trouble at home boys
You know I got some trouble at home

Yeah I like to hurt everybody I see
And I sure don’t like to be bored
Sometimes I need to let off some steam
Because life it just don’t last too long

Oh come with me a conscienceless and vicious loser be

Does it all have to be either this way or that?
Must I choose depression or joy?
What if I want a little of both
For the first time in years I’m alive

It’s causin’ trouble at home trouble at home
I got some trouble at home boys
You know I got some trouble at home

All of your friends they’re taking your side
They say I’m selfish and bad
But honey I’m sad I’m just lonely and sad
I need to lose myself and go mad

Oh come with me a conscienceless and vicious loser be

Oh trouble at home trouble at home
I got some trouble at home boys
You know I got some trouble at home
Track Name: Loser's Prayer
Oh God oh God hear my prayer
I’m ready to climb Heaven’s stair
I don’t want to roam no more
Everything’s become a bore

Oh God oh God hear my call
I just want to have a ball
Throw these blessed blues away
Celebrate the Holy Day

Who cares? So what? Big deal!
Big deal! So what? Who cares?
I don’t want to be no square
I don’t want to be no square
Track Name: Today I Saw My Funeral
Today I saw my funeral it was an awful sight
The grass was brown and dying and the sun was sick and bright
I felt my body lowered in the cold and frozen ground
Today I saw my funeral there was no one around

Today I saw my funeral it made me so ashamed
I realized the only thing my life had brought was pain
All I ever cared about or thought about was me
Today I saw my funeral it was so hard to see

Today I saw my funeral so silent and alone
I wanted to go find someone to weep upon my bones
To change me from this terrible thing to something pure and good
Today I saw my funeral as on your grave I stood
