Track Name: The City Arrives
The city is hollywood the city is rome
the city is everywhere the city is home
the city is honesty the city is lies
the city is young and old the city is spies

Blood suckers in the street sayin come here to me
And you better beware if someone tells you something's free

The city is bitter ends the city is dives
when the city is on its way the city arrives
the city accepts the city denies
the city's a real thing the city's a guise

Blood suckers in the street sayin come here to me
And you better beware if someone tells you something's free

The city is hollywood the city is rome
the city is everywhere the city is home
the city is honesty the city is lies
when the city is on its way the city arrives

Blood suckers in the street sayin come here to me
And you better beware if someone tells you something's free
Track Name: Happy Eating Bones
They eat the meat and marrow too
but i'm happy with eating bones i suppose
i make the kill they take it still
but i'm happy with eating bones i suppose
id rather eat bones alone than feast on meat with you
i'm happy with eating bones i suppose
Track Name: Scream Shout Freak Out
Leave your seat, move your feet
dance around, go to town
do your thang, let the bells rang
scream and shout, freak on out

you're gonna jam for sure today
i'm gonna jam for you anyway


Take it neat, drink it sweet
what you like cant be beat
twirl around, double down
twist it good, like you should
Track Name: The Other Brothers
The weakest one will get the blade
the other brothers a garden spade
the coldest one will wear the fleece
the squeaky wheel will get the grease

we all know it's true

take the high road home

The shortest one will get the lift
the tallest one will lack the gift
the loudest mouth will turn the heads
while quiet eyes with silence weds
Track Name: Nosotros
I bit my tongue for the last time
that same tongue helps me drink my wine
I'm not holding back what i feel
its the only way we can keep it real

Nosotros

Kingdom come and kingdom came
the crown changed but it stays the same
no differences on the hill
an illusion called a bill
Track Name: The Real Feel
Aint no way I'd harm the people
relieve the church of it's steeple
take the white right off the house
stain the first lady's blouse
cut that lion from it's head
at the homes of higher bread
all these things I will do
if they will not harm you


the real feel is the real deal
the real deal has the real feel


cut that lion from its head
cut that lion from its head
Track Name: Wayward Bound
Just take a stride
reach far and wide
claim your land
ice or sand
the flag you wear
has a cross to bear
cause it catches eyes
its just part of the guise

the sky is up the ground is down
the trees are swayin all around
the leaves don't seem to make a sound
i'm wayward bound

No food in sight
no electric light
no energy
its been this way
no amenities
we do nothing but freeze
in the summer we burn
you gotta live to learn
Track Name: Wolf in Cheap Clothes
Life teaches you bare the sharpest tooth
life teaches you the truth
life hands you a glorious path
life makes you feel it's wrath

He's got no friends and it shows he's just that wolf in cheap clothes
he's that cad everybody loathes he's just that wolf in cheap clothes
Track Name: Don't
I won't take back all the crazy little things i've done
i'm myself and i never claimed to be no nun
it's just a whole lotta truthin that i'm gonna spew all day
you got something to hide then you better get outta my way

you really catch fever when you hear my name
you really catch fever when you hear my name
you really got a fever...
i said don't...don't, don't, don't
