Track Name: Mighty Big Boots
Mighty big boots and a pick up truck
have to drink and drink until were drunk
lost the manual and I lost my gut
mighty big boots and a pick up truck
he got stuck in the muck and he died with the truck
mighty big boots and a pick up truck
I am hired help
I am hired help
I am hired help
aw hell who knows where I'll end up
Put an end to bliss when my fist struck
boil my blood you got me fired up
mighty big boots and a pick up truck
he got stuck in the muck and he died with the truck
big boots and a pick up truck
mighty big boots and a pick up truck
only a cowboy hat is left the rest is sunk
done dealing and folded on a dead man's luck
Track Name: Goats On Top
Dead Bodies Get along,
living in a nest egg.
He's low on iron,
he's high on tin,
he's got these horns.
Track Name: Bowleater
Going through the cupboards and the dishwasher,
drinking dishwater.
He drank a full liter,
that bowl eater.

Going through the cupboards and the dishwasher.
Dip a cat in bleach water.
He drank a full liter,
that bowl eater.
He's a chunky sucker.
Gaining presidential weight.
Track Name: Barren
I'm drying up like African thistles
smashed against my feet as I sleep
so it don't feel anything but sweet.
Burrs and snakes,
burrs and snakes.
Sound is gone the way of the snakes,
they dry up like the grass they hiding in.
We all dry up like expensive ladies hands and faces.
We always want to know,
oh lord, where did it go?
Track Name: In The Desert
(This song is about an escaped convict.)
Just had to get out of my block
mouth so full of sand I could not talk
lit my last cigarette on a rock
and the buzzards they pick the skulls
in the desert
and my gun was loaded where I left it
in the desert
with an orange uniform on my back.
