Track Name: Lowdown Showdown
Lowdown Showdown



It’s a lowdown showdown
It’s a crying shame
You lose the plot
I get the blame

But there’s nothin’ I can do
It ain’t down to me – it’s up to you

I chased your demons
Round the block
Now they’re back
Will it ever stop?

But there’s nothin’ I can do
There’s nothin I can do
There’s nothin I can do
It ain’t down to me – it’s up to you

It’s a lowdown showdown
It’s a crying shame
You lose the plot
I get the blame
Lay down your arms
Lay down your pride
Lay down with me
Or stay outside

There’s nothin I can do
There’s nothin I can do
There’s nothin I can do
It ain’t down to me – it’s up to you

Track Name: Rolling in the Trash
Rolling in the Trash


Shot your mouth off though you’re long gone
Had to tell everybody what went on
You pissed on that one last sweet memory
Pissed on the good times you had with me

Cause you been rolling, rolling, rolling,
Rolling in the trash
Rolling, rolling, rolling
You couldn’t walk the line if you was Johnny Cash

You used to point the finger, take the high ground
If I came out late I must be messin’ round
Here we go, it’s another speech
But you don’t practice what you preach

Cause you been rolling, rolling, rolling,
Rolling in the trash
Rolling, rolling, rolling
You couldn’t walk the line if you was Johnny Cash

Bad girls, bad news,
Bad karma and bad moves
Look in the mirror if you wanna move on
Everybody sing along

Cause you been
rolling, rolling, rolling,
Rolling in the trash
Rolling, rolling, rolling
You couldn’t walk the line if you was Johnny Cash

Track Name: Different
Different

Got a different story, got a different game
It’s a different picture with a different frame
In a different country with a different name
But my crazy heart keeps breakin just the same

Can’t shake it loose - can’t let it be
The life we shared is the death of me
I laugh and sing like the others do
But when I cry, I cry for you

Took a different ride on a different train
Threw my chances down a different drain
Got a different ball now and a different chain
And my crazy heart keeps breakin’ just the same

Got a different story, got a different game
Now I’m burning to a different flame
In a different country with a different name
But my crazy heart keeps breakin just the same

Can’t move on – not any more
Can’t go back where I was before
I got no prospects and I got no plans
I left my future in your dirty hands

Took a different ride on a different train
Threw my chances down a different drain
Got a different ball now and a different chain
But my crazy heart keeps breakin just the same

Track Name: Fast Cars and Jack Daniels
Fast Cars and Jack Daniels


I like Jack Daniels and I ride fast cars
It can’t go on forever, cause that’s written in the stars

Don’t know where, and I don’t know when
But I know just how this story’s gonna end

Let me introduce you to my future ex
He’s dead between the ears, but we have a lot of sex

Don’t know where, and I don’t know when
But I know just how this story’s gonna end

It will end in disaster
It will end in tears
I will be asking what went wrong
For the next five hundred years
I will pay. pay, pay
For my foolish ways
But I am blind, deaf and dumb
To the punishment that is to come

Don’t know where, and I don’t know when
But I know just how this story’s gonna end


I like Jack Daniels and I ride fast cars……

Track Name: It's Too Late
It’s Too Late

The slaughter of the innocents was ruining my day
So I read about some actress who had nothing much to say
I made myself a coffee, put the dishes in the sink
Remembered I’d forgotten how to think….

It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late
Saint Peter‘s gonna look me up and down
He’ll slam that golden gate

Someone got the foodchain, someone got the gold
The rich are gettin’ richer, I’m just getting old
I had a social conscience but the fire done gone out
I smothered it in existential doubt

It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late
Saint Peter‘s gonna look me up and down
He’ll slam that golden gate
It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late
I’ll take the lift to the basement
Cause I know the Devil’s gonna wait

They’re dumbing down the media - I tried to make a stand
But they offered lots of money if I advertised their brand
So I went to see the union - I asked them what to do
But they said, “you’re not a member, who are you?”….

It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late
Saint Peter‘s gonna look me up and down
He’ll slam that golden gate
It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late - It’s too late
I’ll take the lift to the basement
Cause I know the Devil’s gonna wait

Track Name: 1977
1977

We shook the ground in a Northern town in the twentieth century
We trod the sands of the promised land and it felt like victory……

The road went on forever, there were no rules left to break
I didn’t see it couldn’t last, I took all I could take
This is my story, disrespect me if you dare
I’m not afraid to tell it anywhere
Don’t fuck with me – I was there

Where were you? Where were you? Where were you?

Some of us were crawling, looking for a place to hide
And some of us have fallen by that dark wayside
No-one told me it was over, no-one said “you’ve had your share”
And if they did, why should I care?
Don’t fuck with me – I was there

Easy when you’re beautiful, easy when you’re young
Harder when you’re waitin’ for the breaks that never come
I look at what I squandered and at times it’s hard to bear
Whoever said life is fair?
Don’t fuck with me – I was there

Where were you? Where were you? Where were you?

Shook the ground in a Northern town in the twentieth century
We trod the sands of the promised land and it felt like victory
Those dreams are broken now, they’re way beyond repair
But I’ll remember, I swear
Don’t fuck with me – I was there
Don’t fuck with me – I was there
Don’t fuck with me – I was there

Track Name: No More Promises
No More Promises


Last time I saw you, whisky in your hand
Acting like a little boy, talking like a man
All those crazy bitches can have you when I'm gone
Those high-heeled hyenas can screw you all night long

Cause it’s no more promises
No more lies
No more anything
I just got wise

Loved you, I loved you to the point of no return
I walked through fire for you ....you watched me burn
This is all the thanks I get for all the love I gave
Got nothin' left to say to you, there's nothin' left to save

And it’s no more promises
No more lies
No more anything
I just got wise

Last time I saw you, standin' at the bar
If I ever see your face again I don't know who you are
So call your drunken buddies round, you got a tale to tell
Started out in Paradise, ended up in Hell

And it’s no more promises
No more lies
No more anything
I just got wise

Track Name: Party Pooper
Break it up (Party Pooper)

You ain't gonna like it ............. You ain't gonna want it......
You don't wanna know me .....You don't wanna see me........

And for why?

I'm the one that's gonna break your party up
I'm the one that's gonna break your party up

Here she comes across the floor, I know what she's lookin' for
Trash like that in any town, she gets around

I'm the one that's gonna break your party up
I'm the one that's gonna break your party up

Close my eyes. I count to ten - ah shit, the bitch is back again
I'm gonna make her see - you belong to me

I'm the one that's gonna break your party up
Look out now, I'm gonna break your party up
I'm the one that's gonna break your party up
I'm the one that's gonna break your party up

There she goes across the floor, just like she did before
Trash like that in every town, she gets around

I'm the one that's gonna break your party up
I'm the one that's gonna break your party up

Close my eyes. I count to ten - oh shit, the bitch is back again
I'm gonna make her see - you belong to me

I'm the one that's gonna break your party up
Look out now, I'm gonna break your party up

Track Name: Loner
LONER

I was knockin‘ on Heaven’s door
But there was nobody home
So I set my suitcases down on the floor
And I knew I was alone
I was alone
I was alone

Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone

I always tried my best to be like the rest
But I was sinking like a stone
They beat me up, they tied me down,
And they worked me to the bone
To the bone …
Yeah to the bone
Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone


I had some dreams but not any more
Just a big pile of ashes on a cold stone floor
Cos I spent too long hangin’ out with the devil
Every kind of way on every kind of level
I gave him my soul for the price of a pint
And I thought oh yeah that’s cool
I gotta ask was I born to lose
Or did I just pick it up at school?

I was knock knock knockin’ on heaven’s door
But there was nobody home
Just a voice in my head and all it said was
“You should have known”
“You should have known”
“You should have known”

Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone
Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone
Track Name: Arizona
Arizona

I loved you in the desert - I loved you in the street
I loved you in the darkness and I loved you in the heat
I loved you till you broke me I loved you till I fell
I loved you till you drank yourself from Heaven back to Hell

Arizona Arizona
Never gonna see you there
Or anywhere again in this life

I still got the pictures of the Vegas honeymoon
The welcome message on the screen inside the hotel room
I still got the pictures, locked inside my head
Screamin’ at the walls - wishin’ I was dead

Arizona Arizona
Never gonna see you there
Or anywhere again in this life

You were the best, you were the first
You were the last, you were the worst
My love is blind, my love is dumb
My love is always staring down the barrel of a gun

Arizona Arizona
Never gonna see you there
Or anywhere again in this life

Track Name: So Far So Bad
So Far So Bad

So far so bad so long so late
So help me God cause I just can’t wait
I can see the light at the end of the road
Wanna smash your lock, wanna crack your code
Wanna touch the flame, wanna feel the heat
Wanna feel the wheels underneath my feet

Hold on baby
I can’t stop now
Hold on baby
I can’t stop now

Got things to say I got stories to tell
Take you anywhere from here to hell
Give me your love, give me back my pride
Give me the keys, c’mon lets ride

Hold on baby
I can’t stop now
Hold on baby
I can’t stop now

So far so bad so long so late
So help me God cause I just can’t wait
Wanna touch the flame, wanna feel the heat
Wanna feel the wheels underneath my feet

Hold on baby
I can’t stop now
Hold on baby
I can’t stop now

Track Name: I Let the Devil in (2002 Version)
I let the Devil in

I was doing alright, feeling fine
Doing my thing and taking my time
In came the Devil with his bag of tricks
Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix

Help me God, I let the devil in

What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine
I didn’t think about that when I crossed the line
In came the devil, he was dressed in black
Now he’s written his name right across my back

Help me God, I let the devil
Help me God, I let the devil
Help me God, I let the devil in

You was temptation
Yeah you was temptation
You was tempation
From head to tail

I was doing alright, feeling fine
Doing my thing and taking my time
In came the Devil with his bag of tricks
Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix

Been doing this thing so many years
All I ever get is blood and tears
But if the devil came to my door
I’d still come crawling back for more

Help me God, I let the devil
Help me God, I let the devil
Help me God, I let the devil in

Track Name: Kick it Out
Kick it out

Put my faith in humankind behind an iron door
The other day I found it doesn’t open any more

So I went to see the doctor, I went to see the shrink
They took a hundred dollars each and told me how to think
They opened up my bleeding heart to see what they could find
Ripped out half a ton of trash and then I lost my mind

Kick it out, kick it out
Gotta move on down
Kick it out, kick it out
Won’t be happy till I’m ten feet off the ground

I put my loving in a box - I threw the key away
But then I realised that I might need it one more day
I tried to tear that box apart - I hurled it to the floor
But nothing ever got it back the way it was before

Kick it out, kick it out
Gotta move on down
Kick it out, kick it out
Won’t be happy till I’m ten feet off the ground

I’ll welcome you with open arms, I’ll always wish you luck
But if you’re going to put me down then please don’t pick me up
Some people want a lover - others want a friend
I just want someone who doesn’t screw me up again
Kick it out, kick it out

Gotta move on down
Kick it out, kick it out
Won’t be happy till I’m ten feet off the ground

Track Name: You Me and Alcohol
You, Me and Alcohol

There’s no more good times – and there’s no more fun
There’s no more lovin’ when day is done
No honey baby - no little doll
it’s just you, me and alcohol

You and me and alcohol
We all went out for a little stroll
I got back home, don’t ask me how
But you’re still walking now

There’s no more good times - no more fun
There’s no more lovin’ when day is done
No honey baby - no little doll
it’s just you, me and alcohol

Stella Artois rolled into your life
She’s the mistress and I’m the wife
She traps grown men like little flies
Don’t you realise?

No more good times – and there’s no more fun
There’s no more lovin’ when the day is done
No honey baby - no little doll
it’s just you, me and alcohol

How the hell can I compete
With my damaged heart and my two left feet?
One and one and one is three
That’s too many for me


No more good times – and there’s no more fun
There’s no more lovin’ when day is done
No honey baby - no little doll
it’s just you, me and alcohol

it’s just you, me and alcohol – there’s nothing left to say
it’s just you, me and alcohol - all the way
it’s just you, me and alcohol – every day
It’s just you. me and alcohol
