1. Step Aside

Momma and Daddy traveled around
Preaching and teaching the gospel
We settled down in a shitty town
Only broken home and a Bible

I’ve been everywhere since then
I saw what really mattered
Now when I look back on all that pain
It brings me laughter

I’m in love
With the sweet sweet sweet sunshine
Ain’t a fool
And it’s time for me to take what’s mine

It’s time
It’s mine
All mine
Step aside

All my friends went to college
Then got jobs and kids and wives
But I found peace in this guitar
Gonna play it ‘til I die

Still in love
With that sweet sweet sweet sunshine
Ain’t no fool
And it’s time for me to take what’s mine

2. See Where The Night Goes

Back in the truck down in New Orleans
I saw the craziest shit that I have ever seen
We’re chasing that luck, please don’t be mean
Hopping on a ship when the night time leaves

They’re out in the streets playing trombones
Singing some songs that I’ve not heard before
I go to the stall, powder my nose
Winking at the mirror, yeah I’m on a roll

Let’s see where the night goes
Let’s see where the night goes
Baby keep me on my toes
Let’s see where the night goes

There’s a voodoo doll next to a miniature Jesus
Mysterious drink on the bar and I need it
There’s a beautiful girl with a like and a stare
She wants all my love but I just don’t care

They’re back in the streets playing trombones
I’m learning the songs and I’m singing along
Go back to the stall, re-powder my nose
Try to keep up baby ‘cause I’m on a roll

Let’s see where the night goes
Let’s see where the night goes
Daisy taking off them clothes
Let’s see where the night goes

3. Breathe And Attack

Breathe and attack
It’s as easy as that

I was born on the river, raised by the rocks
Moved to the city and it gave me culture shock
I’m the son of a preacher but I lost that fever
Yeah, I’ve been destined to accept that I ain’t either

Breathe and attack
It’s as easy as that

People gonna say what they want (breathe and attack)
People gonna see what they want (breathe and attack)
People gonna hear what they want (breathe and attack)
Let me show you how it is done
Just breathe and attack

Can I deliver? Have I lost my edge?
I’m about to straight up put these rumors back to bed
I’m a force of nature just sweeping through
I’m about to light some dynamite with a short fuse

(Breath and attack)
(Breathe and attack)
That’s all you gotta do
(Breathe and attack)
Just breathe and attack
Just breathe and attack
Just breathe and attack

Just attack

4. Take A Ride

She’s off the ground running
She’s the tip of the spear
She’s supersonic baby
Into my atmosphere

She’s out on that horizon
She’s grinding them gears
She’s pedal to the metal
Like she ain’t got no fear

Hey pretty lady
Won’t you come my way
Come on over baby
I got something to say

Hey pretty mamma
Won’t you come on by
Give you a piece
of this American pie

Take a ride
Take a ride
Oh, take a ride

She’s love on the road
She’s fire and ice
She’s in overload
And I’m feeling alright

I’m in over my head
Getting high on the fumes
She’s high octane
But ain’t got nothing to lose

5. What I Need

Something inside is rising
And I can’t hide it
It just occurred to me

Couldn’t ever really seem to find it
I was blinded
By what I was told to be

I tried to rule the world
With guilty hands
I tried to make amends
Oh, but I can’t

I tried to live that life
The best that I could
But it’s so hard to love yourself
When you don’t think that you should

So I’ll give myself some peace
Something’s come over me
That nothing’s what I need

Something inside is calling
And now I’m talking
To the man I used to be

Love has many different colors
You can’t paint no other
It’s only your masterpiece

I tried to rule the world (I’m ready)
With guilty hands (I’m ready)
I tried to make amends (I’m ready)
Oh, but I can’t (I’m ready)

I tried to live that life (I’m ready)
The best that I could (I’m ready)
But it’s so hard to love yourself (I’m ready)
When you don’t think that you should (I’m ready

6. Stand And Deliver

Open your eyes, what do you see?
You’re circled by wolves staring patiently
They’re licking their lips for a piece of you
They lie and they wait for the wrong move

Show ‘em why you are and they’re not
Show ‘em why they freeze and you’re hot
Show ‘em why they bought the ticket
Show ‘em or you’re gonna regret it

Stand and deliver
You gotta make ‘em remember
You gotta prove ‘em wrong
Show ‘em all that you’re bigger
So stand and deliver
If you want to be remembered

The vulture circles over the kill
The warden wants to keep you in jail
The banker likes to see you broke
They all laugh at you when they know you’re their joke

They don’t give a damn about you
They don’t give a shit about what you’ve been through
They spit in your general direction
They’ll steal all your dreams just as long as you let them

7. Baby I'm Back

Woke up this morning and the first thing I said
Was “I don’t ever want to drink again”
I’m not saying I’m some sort of saint
But my head aches so bad that I can’t think straight

Incoming call from my favorite friend
She said “Come on over baby, my party just began”

Well maybe I’ll just have one
Twice sounds so nice
Third time’s a charm
Put the fourth on ice

Baby, I’m back
Swinging from the chandelier
Baby, I’m back
‘Til they kick me out of here

Woke up in my boots, mirrored sunglasses on
I can’t find my wallet and my keys are gone
Is the ringing I hear my head or my phone?
Guess I did it again, now I’m back to square one

“Baby come back over I’m all alone”

Well maybe I need one to get my head screwed on
Twice sounds so nice
Third time’s a charm
Put the fourth on ice

Late afternoon my friends had enough
They all love to tell me how I fucked up
I’d love to apologize but I’ll just do it more
You gonna run with the bull, you gonna know the horns

8. Everlasting Love

Girl, where you going?
I’ve seen you here twice before
The world, it keeps on rolling
And I’ve never had a place to go

Baby, I can’t shake you
In my head stuck like a song
Your melodies, your words, the bees and the birds
We’re humming to it all night long

I’ve been waiting for so long
You came a-running
Right into my arms

Everlasting love
Always lifting me up
Everlasting love
Never can get me enough

Lady, it’s no illusion
It’s not from a mystical land
This love is a solid foundation
And I’m happy right where I stand

I’ve been waiting for so long
You came a-running
Right into my arms

Can you be my lover?
Can you be true?
Never find another
None as fine as you

9. Nothing

So sick and tired
I’m so sick and tired
Yeah, I’m so sick and tired
Always trying and ending up with nothing

Ain’t got much time
No, I ain’t got much time baby
I ain’t got much time to give
Always ending up with nothing

You stole all my love
You stole all my stuff
You stole all my life, my desires
And left me with nothing

I’m just a fool
Yeah, I’m your little fool
You drag me, you beat me
And always complete me with nothing

Always leaving me with
Nothing
Always leaving me with
Nothing

Take all my love
Take all my pride
Leave me to die
I’m just trying to survive with nothing

I’ll be alright
I’ll be just fine
Born into this life
The same as I’ll die, that’s with nothing

10. Three Chords

Grandpa Wilbur was the first to be saved
He traveled the country playing on the church stage
They’d pass the hat, that was all he was paid
He was a dying breed long before his day

The lights came up and he brought them to tears
They’d run the aisle, talked in tongues and they cheered
They asked him how he did it, his response was the same
There was a little voice inside that kept on calling his name

That said:
Give ‘em three chords
And the Holy Ghost
They’ll start a-moving
And shaking on the floor

Don’t let up
When they start to sweat
They’ll be dancing all night long
When revival hits

Now watch ‘em dance
Go on and dance

Now Wilbur’s gone and the path that he charted
Now it’s up to me to carry on what he started
The message is different, but the chords are the same
Every night in the green room I hear him calling my name

He says:
Give ‘em three chords
And some rock ‘n roll
They start a-moving
And shaking on the floor
Don’t let up
When they start to dance
They’ll be waving and a-clapping
And a-shaking their hands
Oh yeah
There they go
They want to feel the rhythm
And they’re ready for more

So give ‘em three chords
Give ‘em three more

Now watch ‘em dance
Go on and dance
Go on and dance
Go on and dance

He gave ‘em three chords
And the Holy Ghost
I give ‘em rock ‘n roll

Don’t let up
When they start to dance
They keep moving and a-shaking
And a-waving their hands

Oh yeah
There they go
They want to feel the rhythm
And they’re ready for more
So give ‘em three chords
And some rock ‘n roll, yeah

Now watch ‘em dance
Go watch ‘em dance
Go watch ‘em dance

Give ‘em that organ Rodney!

11. Black

Everyone’s talking yip-yap yip-yap
Hard to stand up with a knife in your back
Tongue like a gun rat-a-tat-tat-tat
I’m gonna get high ‘til it all turns black

Hurt people hurt people tit-tat tit-tat
Sell your brother out for a kick back
Standing ovation clap-clap-clap-clap
I’m gonna get high ‘til it all turns black

‘Til it all turns black
‘Til it all turns black
Oh my
For all of you looking for that next big number
Here’s another feel good hit of the summer

I don’t even need you, I barely need myself
Watch it all burn up ‘til there’s nothing else
Watch it all light up pacing forth and back
I’m gonna get high ‘til it all turns black

Everybody talking yip-yap yip-yap
About to get high

‘Til it all turns black
‘Til it all turns black
Oh my
For all of you looking for that next big number
Here’s your fucking feel good hit of the summer
