Ghost Drugs 03:01
Heaven paid me a heavy compliment Singin’ you deserve all that you’ve been sent So we’re sending you back to the world for a little while And as it turns out, I died as a child I never grew up, I’ve always stayed wild Never shed my wings or succumb to the weight of denial As old as the stars and young as the dirt I know this gets deep and I know it must hurt So drink up and smoke down because it ain’t gonna get Any better or worse, I ain’t saying we’re cursed But this is ghost love that we’re makin’ Ghost drugs that I’m takin’ This is ghost rock and roll So what does that say about you? It’s a long road but I’ll make it Look alive son I’ll try and fake it I’ll play that ghost rock and roll until forever is through Well here’s a story about the living dead Jesus Christ still had some blood to shed At the pearly gates Saint Peter said You can’t stay here boy, go back to earth instead
2.
Here beneath the fire fountain, flowers on the wall Further in and farther out we fall Floating at unprecedented heights above the land There you are and here I am Come on, let’s shoot the moon The queen, her heart, the burning in her nether We are tethered, we are free To float along out here, at last, forever My rider, my queen The stars align and guide us here where we’re living to infinity
3.
We baptized Mother Nature’s Son in a pool of her own blood Drew straws for the timber rights and wrote a novel about what it was You can dance if you want it, dance if you want it Come on, gimme me your soul I’ll give you something to fill the hole Romance in the role Now lazy days on the promenade are drenched in champagne Electric boogie lights and depraved games with the maids If you want a taste of the sweet life, better put on your old soft shoes Let the sand man strike up the band and show him what you can do
4.
The Power 03:21
Not all has been lost or squandered in vain Not every door been open to the rain But I’d be lyin’ to you if I denied these blues Or tried to lose the noose around my neck We’re going down, down, down and out of it Too damn proud to quit I gave too much away, it ain’t no reason to celebrate Still, let’s drink up and forget it Is there a place where we could go and live out a quiet hour? I’d give it all away if I had anything left or if I had the power Coffee, wine, moon and sun Shake, stagger, then I’m done Homespun, nothing but love in oblivion We’re out on the roof callin’ cuckoo Well I’d never lie to you I’d bare it all and barely even make it through
5.
Fix My Head 05:33
I get a broader view when I fix my head Gotta get out of bed and take the pledge Do what the Lord said Go out and raise the dead Gotta fix my head, gotta fix my head It’s just the very thought of you that makes me want to try To get out of bed or take the pledge Don’t break, I know you’re cryin’ over everything Darlin’ there ain’t no denying But still, you should think about it Think Is this even real? So much of what we see is just an artifice You and I we shouldn’t be a part of this Not even pretend I can bend my mind to feel better Patch holes in the roof when it’s raining Gotta fix my head, gotta fix my head We get along, sing along Rise up when we must It’s a long road to trust Gotta take the pledge To get out of bed Make sure the sheep get fed At least that’s what they said, “Ya better fix your head” I know this to be true Read it in a book Saw it on a screen somewhere, somehow Hold on, it ain’t over or even yet begun I saw it in the sun and she said “You should think about it”
6.
Time Machine 03:41
All nine lives been pissin’ in the wind Call this a resurrection and we’ll do it again Time moves fast and I’m a fiend We can get our fix up in my time machine If the heavy hand won’t let you win Or the bastards stole your innocence If you’ve got a mind to make a scene We can give ‘em the stick up in my time machine Move your body and you move my body Over and over again Day after day it never ends Come on hop inside Let me take you for a ride You’ll have all you ever want of my attention Space and time collide The echo and the tide We’ll connect the dots with this invention Do the rainbows make it feel like a dream With cigarettes, makeup, magazines? Shot my load and called you my sunbeam We can do it again up in my time machine
7.
Radio this in ‘Cause I know you’re listenin’ And I’ve learned to dance in the gaze of your eyes Fix you a drink and settle to thinkin’ Well I’m much obliged to get off or get high Nothing you need or were taught to believe Will grace our communion or suffice your mind I hope you’re sharin’ The beggars are barren and holding their glass for a taste of your wine Live to regret it? I doubt it, I love it I’ll preach ‘til I’m parched and my cup runneth dry Follow the leader, conceive her, deceive her Her wrath tastes like that of your own humble pie Knowledge has shaken the very foundation A spittin’ image of the stories we write Truth quite becomin’ We all yearn for buzzin’ And breaking the edict ‘cause there’s no end in sight
8.
Anywhere that you would want me to be I could be there in a hurry love, call me Anything that you would want me to say I’ve said it all already anyway ‘Cause I’ve got a feeling that we’re already there Where? Anywhere I don’t mind those other guys your chillin’ with Got a few of my good time girls as well And if they ever need me We’ll be there in a hurry love, won’t we? We go wayward, backward, onward, forward Wait! One thing… Any day, every day, you better not be hasty
9.
Lighter Song 05:11
Hey, hallelujah, come on Climb the ladder to the sky at dawn Be the dreamer, the sage and the seer For all the people tryin’ to find a light here Way down among the shadowlands In the grip of heavy hands We burnt the manifesto of doubt and fear For all the people tryin’ to find a light here Still someday it will all become clear For all the people tryin’ to find a light here
10.
I walk through miles and miles on the streets of this town Through fields of grain and across the outbound Kick rocks off the bridge, I know I’m lettin’ you down Time gives me the shivers Whenever I pass that old place I regress Into childish ways, do things I regret Like every mistake wears the same prom dress to bed With whomever Go it alone Sink like a stone before it’s been thrown God, I’ve got an alibi The devil’s on my right hand side Goddamn this place, goddamn my pride Someday I’ll flow like a river I’ve got letters full of compliments A few of my own, I ain’t never sent Somebody out there is probably getting’ bent It’s been hard to deliver When the chariot comes to take me away Somebody will have to break these shackles and chains That keep me bound to earthly pleasures and pain It’s been hard to get severed Someday I’ll be clever And I’ll flow like a river
