Wake up in the morning gotta face the day
I hear the boss man calling to take me away
night After night day after day
I keep repeating the same things

Track Name: Dope Girl
Everytime I close my eyes I always think of you
Lickin' your lips shakin' your hips
Your like a drug I love to do
You give me something give me something I don't know
You got me Spinnin upside down on the floor
I'm confused is this you or is this
The love you got me on
but I want to break free
free from your toxic love
cuz that love is a fantasy full of ecstasy
in my world livin with my dope girl
everyday I'm a slave I've been waiting for you to spend a little time tonight
me and you we can groove we can kick we can
stay up to see the sunrise
but when I'm down your not around I get lonely I could use your company
you give it to me instanly with your sugar honey
I'm your little lover bee
but I want to break free
free from your toxic love
cux that love is a fantasy full of ecstasy in my world

Track Name: Gypsy Eyes
Hey I hitched a ride by a girl with gypsy eyes
you know I'm far from home so take me where I wont be know
she asked me what I done why are you on the run
I said I can't explain cuz I don't even know your name
Hey yeah you got me hypotized by your gypsy gypsy eyes
She seen my face before on a wanted sign
hangin on a swingin door that was all tore up and drippin wine
you know I used that knife I've been runnin all my life
when my car broke down you picked me up just in time
Track Name: Salkantay
I was out exploring the hills
up and down with this guitar I found
I got sick and I lost my pills
the day before my epic thrill well now
I was foreign to the situation
not experienced in navigation
the next day I started my trek
not good considering the cards in my deck
10 hours in my body started to give
I was being punished for all of my sins well I'll
ride my horse through the stormy weather
I'll go to hell and back till I feel better
I was alone in the Andes gasping for air
with no one around a living nightmare
the sky opened up and I got weak in the knees
now I gotta push on
its my destiny
no longer I'm alone
they're gonna push me till I find my way home
I got the strength of my family
the Salkantay's gonna take the best of me
I'm living it up I'm on the edge
I'm living it up so close to death
I'll ride my horse through the stormy weather
I'll go to hell and back till I feel better
I was alone in the Andes gasping for air
with no one around a living nightmare
the sky opened up and I got weak in the knees
now I gotta push on its my destiny
Track Name: Voice Inside My Head
Living is hard when your away
it seems so condescending all this talk about me
this voice inside my head
is driving me insane he always trys to warn me
when I'm going crazy and he lives inside my head
oh yeah I get this overwhelming kind of temptation
that brings me down
and I know its wrong but I do it anyway I need to escape
I've been on the run everyday runnin from the same things
that haunt me when I can't sleep I just need to escape
from this voice inside my head hes driving me so crazy lately
maybe I'm just insane oh yeah
I get this overwhelming kind of temptation that brings me down
and I know its wrong but I do it anyway I need to escape
Track Name: In Peru
I'll eat ceviche durin menu
I'll cross the deserts of Peru
just to meet you in Machu Picchu
cuz me and you make a perfect two
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting so long so long
I can't wait until I find you
I can't wait till I meet you in
I'll walk the Andes to the jungle
I'll eat bananas and mangos
I'm makin my way into Cuzco
to be with you is my only goal
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting so long so long
I can't wait until I find you
I can't wait till I meet you in Peru
Track Name: Road of Leaving Shame feat. Tim Tweedale
I packed my bags on monday I was at the bank by noon
I took out all my money I went looking for some place new
cuz this old town has robbed me and left me on the ground
all I am is forgotten to them so I may as well not be around
so I'm gonna go where a real wind blows where no one knows my name
my guitars packed in my pick up truck I'm on the road of leaving shame
and oh I'll leave it all behind
and oh I don't know what I'll find
anythings better than my old life thats why I left it all behind
I'm on the road to better times
I pulled up to this new town and went straight to the saloon
I picked up this old guitar and I started to play my tune
no one knew who I was they didn't even know my name
they just sat back and listened to me play the road of leaving shame
and oh I'll leave it all behind
and oh I don't know what I'll find
anythings better than my old life thats why I left it all behind
I'm on the road to better times
I hang out with my new friends as they listen to the stories I tell
I talk about my old town and how living there really felt
maybe its because I was a little bit crazy they judged me like a fool
maybe its because I never fit in not even with my parents too
but if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be the man I am
singing songs for all of y'all about the town that left me out
oh I'll leave it all behind
oh I don't know what I'll find
anythings better than my old life thats why I left it all behind
I'm on the road to better times
Track Name: Comin' Home
It's been a long hard road
I've worked my hands to the bone
I'm sorry I'm gonna leave you alone
I packed my bags I'm comin' home
well I've lived long enough
to know the meaning of love
and I aint gonna give up on love
love is all I got
I see the sun rise risin' in the east
I look to the west when the sun goes down and I think about you
I think about the one I love who makes my heart stay true
at the end of the day when the sun sets I think about you
I said hey hey I'm goin my own way
at the end of the day when the sun sets will you think about me
I said hey hey don't fade away
at the end of the day when the sun sets will you remember me
