additional percussion on "Beaner' by John Meredith.
I was born here/ under the fat sun/ I could see the stars there/ I could count them every one/ Border exit...into the unsure/ Where the cold defeats the senses/ dark and so obscure/ and I'm going back to Texas/ where the fields are true and green/ It's so warm over in Texas/ It's the lone star state for me...see
Leaving New York say goodbye to all my friends/ I'll be rolling round here when the snowy winter ends/ Please stop weeping don't break my gypsy heart/ One lesson I've learned is that you finish where you start / I left all my friends in New York/ I know they're waiting there for me/ Somewhere out in New York/ Someone wrote a song for me...see
I am the dairy queen/ harlot and amputee./ By any name call me/ Beaner with a capital G!....
Gold and silver may ruin all my dreams/ But you will never get me to be part of the machine/ Here I go now into fields I know/ I'll be stepping round here/ when the summer melts the snow/ and I'm going back to Texas/ cause it's plain and sweet/ It's so green out there in Texas/ It's where I was born to be/ Got my 4 string in Texas/ That may be all that I need/ But I'll be leaving Texas/ Cause the east coast it loves me...see
Track Name: Holden
Catch me rye angel falling through all shit/ You make me laugh/ Phony build me a throne/ If I tell you I'll miss you/ Tail me pervert/ Tell a story of you/ Fanatics lie..breaded rye/ For Christ sakes I run/ If I tell you I'll miss you/ Ooooh/ Ohhhh/ Ohhhh/ Ohhhhh/ Bodies catch bodies/ I caught them all in the rye/ I told you I miss you.
Track Name: King Jubs
King Jubs crawl across the floor/ King Jubs opens up the door/ King Jubs way up in the air/ King Jubs shows up everywhere/ King Jubs is the 666/ King Jubs full of dirty tricks/ King Jubs is the Metal God/ Ladies swoon where King Jubs walks.
Track Name: Scream
You are the screamer/ under the rock/ you thought me empty/ but now I've come back/ Scream/ Up in the bedroom/ at home all alone/ So quiet in here/ the masks are all shorn/ Scream/ Step back/ step back/ step back/ step back/ I'm an extremist/ been farming the land/ the men might not know it/ but the little girls understand/ Scream
Track Name: 88
88 blot out the sun/ 88 I'm nearly done/ I'm winking out here one by one/ 88 my body's gone/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number.../ 88 heads in a jar/ 88 the darkest star/ 88 won't you get in my car/ 88 both near and far/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number.../ 88 if you could see/ the differences you missed in me/ 88 I'm gonna set you free/ 88 the dead love me/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number/ 88 is the number.
