Track Name: Oh The Misery
Selfish girl what do you want from me
Why'd you come around
You're always laughing at me
You know i hate the sound

I've been to Timbuktu and I've been down
I've been running from Johnny Law,
Been runing from the hounds

Oh The Misery

I've settled down and played for the king,
You know i've played the tune
Played it for the jester and the man on the moon

I've been here for too long, now i gotta get away
Cause you'll come running after me, begging me to stay

Blinded teeth don't rip into my head
You know my words are better off dead
Pots and pans, lots of hands,
Oh the misery

Stone the boys with the curly hair, ambitious youth
Down by the law always sittin on the wagon of truth
Three bones came to be, dancin around my brain
Now Johnny law's coming after me, saying i'm insane

Blinded teeth dont rip into my head
You know my words are better off dead
Pots and pans, lots of hands,
Oh the misery
Track Name: Wherever I Roam
Blind man hit me when i was drunk,
With a 44 pistol looked like a BB gun
Well i just kept a walkin, but i couldn't stand up
I had a blackened feeling sittin in my gut
Chimney sweeper saw me, just the other day
Said you aint lookin good are you feeling okay?
He was black as the night, no light shines on me
And wherever I roam you know that I aint free

Wherever I roam, you know that I aint free
The devil's always waitin, right behind me

Jealousy picked me up on the side of the road
Obsession was with her lookin mighty cold
They asked me where i was headed, but I couldn't see
Everything was blackened in front of me
The ghost of my dad was drinkin at the bar
Said boy i know you havent gone far
The sky was shaking when he spoke to me
Said don't follow in my footsteps because I aint free

Wherever I roam, you know that I aint free
The devil's always waitin, right behind me

Snakes of Medusa, whispered in my ear
Said boy i know you got plenty of fear
I brushed them off, kept on walkin down the road
But every step i took you know my feet began to mold
Loneliness saw me struggling to get home
He knew I was walkin for days all alone
He crept up slow, right behind me
That moment i knew I'd never be free

Wherever I roam, you know that I aint free
The devil's always waitin, right behind me
