Track Name: Tekilla
Tekilla

when the sun goes down and darkness comes around
and we're ridin in from all points hellbound
there's only one thing that can keep the world in order
some of that honey of the earth
fruit of the agava

get set up
to knock down
cuz you know
that's how we stalk the night

chorus:
tekilla

in the morning you'll begin to feel it in every bone
like rigor mortis in a poor old zombie's soul
but right now we're comin onto high midnight
so come on killers let those fuckin shots fly

you feel it
in every bone
cuz you know
that's how we stalk the night

chorus

when the lights go out and all the bars close their doors
find your queen of the night and move it to the streets
drink the last drop, yeah baby swallow the worm
cuz life is short and by mornin we all burn

you take it
in every hole
cuz you know
that's how we stalk the night

chorus
Track Name: Blood On My Hands
Blood On My Hands

I got blood on my hands from all the years that come and go
cleanin up the messes that I've made
I just keep on washin but it never goes away
the more I scrub the more it stays

I got a pint from Carol Ann who left me for a friend
never saw it comin nor did she
the night I caught 'em in the sheets of that ol' feather bed
lord did that scene get out of hand

chorus:
so I took an eye for an eye
for what they did to me
don't pray for my soul
just give me soap
cuz you know it's a bitch comin clean

I got a quart from Laura Sue who went and took me for a fool
but I sent her down to chainsaw school
first you fill 'er up then you yank the cord
and look out when the chain it starts to roar

chorus

I got the most from Katy Jo who left me down and broke
after all the promises we pledged
but when it comes right down to it
love is just an axe
it cuts you through the heart and leaves you dead

chorus

they say I need one more verse
one verse for this song
but I can't think of a single thing I'd like to add
suffice to note that there ain't no hope
when you're always in the red
chances are that now I'll be condemned

chorus
Track Name: Mexican Moonshine
Mexican Moonshine

like a bullet shattered darkness
the southern witch appears
to fill my head with thirst
for the taste of just one tear
the heat of blazing eyes
burns my heart to coals
she’s got me where she wants me
one drink short of her soul

my eyes trace the contours
of the tattoos on her skin
that lead within the confines
of the glory born to men
night after night I follow
a slave to this thirst
I pray that she will heal me
as my face falls to the dirt

yo soy, yo soy
sangre de la luna
ella canta
she sings
listen to the song she sings

chorus:
Mexican moonshine

I’m servin out my sentence
in this god forsaken place
she circles my shadow
but I never touch her face
still she holds me
in the web she has spun
painting all her colors
in my world devoid of sun

yo soy, yo soy
sangre de la luna
lloró al Diablo
she sings
whoa she sings

chorus
Track Name: Bury Them Deep
Bury Them Deep

bury them deep that’s what I said
time to play your dead man’s hand
dealin bullets is like dealin cards
when it all comes down to a draw

wind in my face I feel the burn
dust drinks the blood of their tears
I say goodbye but it don’t mean much
when shots ring like hits of a drum

bury them deep that’s what I said
lay your body down on the sand
when it’s all said and done
it’s just a price I work to earn
it’s just a price I work to earn

hot sun glares down on the street
silence as deep as a Colorado gorge
don’t care where you been or where you come from
it’s just my job to be done

wind in my face I love the burn
dust drinks the blood of their tears
I say goodbye but it don’t mean much
when shots ring like hits of a drum

bury them deep
and they won’t back haunt your soul like they do mine

this town crawls with beggers and thieves
come to bite the hand that feeds
Track Name: Revolución
Revolución

I woke up this morning opened up my eyes
decided to take hold of my life
it’s been so long since I’ve seen an early dawn
the sun is at my back and I’m alive

here I come like an angry bull
alive or dead I’m runnin for the red

chorus:
viva (stand up)
revolución (ya)
I shake my fists
I shake my fists at the sun

I got to my feet and started the day
I’m moving on and I ain’t looking back
cursed be those who try to hold me down
tears of love won’t make me stay

gotta face this change with an open-minded heart
don’t let it take us all too far south
I’ve come to fight there’s a new door up ahead
if it ain’t open I’ll kick it down

chorus

when I play my song you hear the music from my soul
round and round this mad world I go
sometimes in this life there’s only one choice to make
so join me now or get out of my way

chorus
Track Name: Texas Bound
Texas Bound

I was born in a west texas gundown
when the sun was sinkin low
my mother she gave me her life there
and my father had already left home
nothing in life it come easy
when you ain’t really got no one
but there’s no place I rather be now
than under the texas sun

buried down among the worms of the grave
I’ve been away too fuckin long
hit the border come 1am
drinkin beer and singin songs

chorus:
whoa oh oh
I’m coming home
texas bound
put the pedal down
texas bound

it’s cold and lonely when you’re six feet down
it ain’t no way to spend the day
but now I’m back where I belong
back in the lone star state

chorus
Track Name: Walkin' Through the Desert (With a Crow)
Walkin’ Through the Desert (With a Crow)

it was sunday mornin and I found myself alone
walkin through the desert with a crow
I took me a shovel and I dug myself a hole
walkin through the desert with a crow

at times I thought that I would die
but I left those days somewhere behind
there’s only so much a man can take
before he knows
he knows he’s gonna break

cuz a man’s gotta take what he can take
when he’s got one foot down in the grave
you never know where the road is gonna end
sometimes I think this bird
this bird’s my only friend

chorus:
walkin through the desert with a crow

I murdered my past life and I covered up its bones
walkin through the desert with a crow
I gathered my possessions and I hit a lonely road
walkin through the desert with a crow

there’s been nights I drank myself to sleep
I lay my head on nails with bottles at my feet
when I awoke I thought I was free
but there he’d be
that bird that follows me

a man ain’t meant to be alone
with demons scratching at his soul
if I had wings I’d probably fly
if I had tears I know
I’d probably cry

chorus
