Track Name: The Devil Down Below
Woke up in the morning feeling mighty fine,
Got two fingers of whisky and a bottle of rye,
Head swimming silent working to town,
The job that pays is the one I found.

Kick the job, jump to the bar,
Got tabs across town but I'm going far,
Find a place they don't know me yet,
Leave no scrub with lost profit.

Forget your immortal soul,
You gotta drink to the devil down below.

Got Derringer sitting right by my side,
My eyes straight set on my liquid bride,
People always come, and people always go,
The drink never left me out there alone.

Bartender says it's time to pay,
Derringer speaks, and I run away,
Scramblin’ through brambles in deep dark night,
Hidden from the haze of their flashlights.

Forget your immortal soul,
You gotta drink to the devil down below.
To live and drink another day,
You gotta run, RUN

Laying in cold wet mud‘n clay,
Their torches gone to wait for day,
Sip my flask and carry on,
Fuck the town that I came from.

Forget your immortal soul,
You gotta drink to the devil down,
(Drink to the devil down),
Drink to the devil down below.
Track Name: Companion
To my darling girl, well I miss you so bad,
You left me so quickly and didn't seem sad,
You walked out that door and you didn't look back,
Left me with nothing, my red heart turned black.

Now I'm singing in the night,
As I staggered from the bar,
Well this drunken communion,
To the way that you are,
My heart skipped for a minute and you left me to the end,
Oh why girl you left me I cannot comprehend.

I've given you my heart, and you've taken away my soul,
Oh, will this dying relationship keep me from my goal?
Well, I've worked way too hard and I've waited way too long,
To let you walk away now, without a sense of right or wrong.

Every night in the city streets, well, I'm up against the wall,
Yeah, I'm wondering if you're out there girl, if you missing me at all,
I’ve got my heart in my pocket, you’ve got your heart on your sleeve,
Your blasphemy and trickery, only the devil could conceive.

I've given you my heart, and you've taken away my soul,
Oh, will this dying relationship keep me from my goal?
Well, I've worked way too hard and I've waited way too long,
To let you walk away now, without a sense of right or wrong.

Living in the Church, and living with the sin,
I'm starting the healing and healing starts within,
I left you for a minute and you left me to the end,
Oh why girl you left me I cannot comprehend.

I've given you my heart, and you've taken away my soul,
Oh, will this dying relationship keep me from my goal?
Well, I've worked way too hard and I've waited way too long,
To let you walk away now, without a sense of right or wrong.
Track Name: Kiss My Brass
This is a brand-new musical disc,
With the flick of my wrist,
Make you jump and twist.

Sounds from the mighty Brass Action,
“Kiss My Brass,”

MOVE YA….
Track Name: Who Needs Them?
Think there must be something wrong with me,
There must be something that I cannot see,
All my friends say "I'm something else,"
‘Cause theyre messing with my mental health.

Well there’s one good thing I can, take away,
No these feelings aren’t here to, here to stay,
I’m left to deal with my thoughts alone,
Oh, I find comfort in those, sweet two tones.

Now I'm making only enemies,
No expectations, no more fantasies,
I said, judge me if you want, but I am fine,
I'll be a King with these thoughts of mine.

Some picked up, some straight up left this town,
Some are still here to hang around,
Some of them liked her more than me,
Who can blame them for this philosophy?

I had lots friends, that was years ago,
I've been sinkin' like Dorian Grey you know,
In the flesh I am wondering who you are?
And Mr. you know I'm not, I’m not going far.

Now I'm making only enemies,
No expectations, no more fantasies,
I said, judge me if you want, but I am fine,
I'll be a King with these thoughts of mine.
