Track Name: Sure Is Nice
You know it sure is nice
To have a little bit of money
You know it’s been a long time
Now finally honey
We got a good place
Stand and stare at the sun
You know that look on your face
Makes me not want to run

You know it sure is nice
To have a sexy sweet woman
You know you got me on call
You know you keep me comin’
I don’t have to worry
Where I’m gettin’ mine from
You know there’s lots of pretty girls
You make ‘em all seem so dumb

You know it sure is nice
To have a place to sit
You can leave me alone
While I’m taking a shit
Keep the door locked up
No matter how you’re knockin’
I’m gonna be here a while
So just keep on walking
Track Name: NSA Blues
Don’t worry about a thing
We’ve got your number
And we’ve got your name
Believe us or not
We know what you’re talking about
Don’t mind if we listen in
We heard where you started
And we know where you live
Got a GPS
That follows you walking around
Got satellites
In orbit just to pin you down

Don’t mind if we watch your place
There’s always a camera
Pointed at your face
We’ve seen all your cats
We know when you’re jerkin’ off
Hungover with an aching head
I’m working from home
Eating breakfast in bed
Can’t hear the T.V.
I guess I better turn it up
My coffees cold
I guess I better fill it up
Track Name: Out of Sight
You say it’s not that bad
Getting old
You say it’s not that bad
Getting old
Always do what you’re told
Always do what you’re told
You say it’s not that bad
Getting old

You say it’s not that that rough
Giving up
You say it’s not that rough
Giving up
You used to be tough
You used to be tough
You say it’s not that rough
Giving up

You say you’re not that scared
Of what isn’t there
You say you’re not that scared
Of what isn’t there
Out of sight out of mind
Out of sight out of mind
You say you’re not that scared
Of what isn’t there
Track Name: Now and Then
Sometimes I lose my way
I forget the words to say
Been having trouble with myself
And yes I am in pretty bad health
That don’t bother me
I tell you that’s a fact
It’s easy to keep track
Now that I’ve been there and back

Some people try to make a deal
They wanna tell me how to feel
They wanna take a piece of mine
So they can say they had a piece of mine
They must think I’m asleep
But I aint takin’ a nap
It’s easy to keep track
Now that I’ve been there and back

Doing weird things with my time
Far away from my peace of mind
Taking things that are not mine
I gotta clear my honky tonk mind
So I’m out in the street
Gotta get right back
It’s easy to keep track
Now that I’ve been there and back
Track Name: Transcendental Meditation
Well I’m saving up my money
Trying to buy transcendental meditation
Cause lately all my visions
They been keepin’ me awake at night
Now you might think it’s funny
You might think I need a new occupation
If I can find my mantra babe
I know that everything will be alright

Well I spend my money boozin’
Writing my name on little pieces of paper
I spend all the change
Left in my pocket
Leaving those generous tips
Now I spend my time doing things
Aint got nothing to do with my spirit
By the time I’m gone to look for it
I don’t even know where it went

Well I know I aint a loser
And I know I aint no square
But I’m doin’ it just like my daddy did
Before he cut off all of his hair
Now they got ‘em a spiritual center
And I can see it right through the fence
But its seventeen hundred dollars
Before they’re ever gonna let me in

So I try to practice breathing
But I can’t seem to get too deep
Guided meditation
It always makes me fall asleep
I can’t afford a guru
I can’t even afford the rug
And there’s no way in hell I’m going fifteen days
Without taking any drugs
Track Name: Juanita*
I rode in on the wind on an eagle made of tin
About a dollar in my pocket and a couple of broken ribs
And my mind was on some shit that had sent my friends home again
When all we’d come to do was pick and grin

Juanita had a car and she liked the way I played guitar
She gave me little white pills and pushed a little too hard
Well my memory ain’t too exact but I saw some things that I can’t take back
Thirty days on the road is thirty days of livin hard

Well we done what we did acting like a couple kids
And the only time it hurt was in the end
So I’ll roll another one up take another drink from your loving cup
Honey you can go all night I can keep it up

In the end I blew my pay just getting back to the USA
That’s the only place a man like me can stay
Well I tell myself I’m free but that’s a line I just don’t believe
Juanita you’re the only home for me
Track Name: Self Centered Blues
Daddy came down with a broken back
I don’t believe he’s gonna make it back
Momma went looking for something to do
And I’m left here with self-centered blues
They don’t seem to go away

Should’ve saved my money when I was young
But I just kept looking for a bit of fun
Then the days went by and the years just flew
And I’m all caught in self-centered blues
They don’t seem to go away

I sure made a lot of friends
And I watched a lot of good things come to an end
Without no water those seeds never grew
And I’m left here with self-centered blues

I had a friend, he lost track
He turned a corner and he didn’t look back
Didn’t check the signs, didn’t see the road
Now the self-centered blues is all he knows
They don’t seem to go away

Working hard makes me depressed
And I carry round thoughts that I don’t address
Now the rain’s coming in
Through the holes in my shoes
And I’m all caught up in self-centered blues
They don’t seem to go away
Track Name: Benny's Here
Well your momma looks good
And you’re daddy’s rich too
But they didn’t teach ya
How to move
How to groove
Can you do what I do
Can you do what I do
Can you do what I
Track Name: It's A Shame My Store Isn't Open
When you walk down the street
You’re using your feet
LSD
When you look at your hand
You look at your hand
LSD
When you look at the man
Who is that man
LSD
