Lyrics

when the road less traveled burns
 through the forest of composure
 hold on to your dreams till tomorrow

 I entered through the backdoor
 on the tail of a perfect storm
 I let go all of my anger
 as I passed through the door
 
and I just want these words to stand the test of time
and I just hope I finally got it right
this time around

an idea born of innocence
gracefully falls to the ground
as a thousand puzzled soldiers just looked on

they just want their deeds to stand the test of time
and they just hope they finally got it right
this time around
I just hope these words will stand the test of time
and I just hope I finally got it right this time around

Lyrics

There's a spider over my bed and he's got his own agenda
my sheets are soaking wet
but I know there's a god in heaven

I'm trying all these things
to keep my life on track
I'm just a genius havin a bad day
and that too shall pass

can't write unless I'm tortured
but at least I still have my ear
talk about undercover
something special's happening here

just like a rain dance
filled with romance
in an imperfect world where everybody bleeds
here comes that big voice
and probably too many toys
I'm just an open book
so step inside and read to me

I'm a national music treasure 
few people know my name
I live my life under the wire
and caused a lot of pain

the roaches are moving my luggage now
my mind says it's time to go
I miss my home and my family
the road is all I know
then

Lyrics

  • Johnathan get your books your gonna be late for school
  • I'm comin momma there's just one more thing I have to do                
  • He reached up under the bed and got some cash
  • and stuck it in his boot
  • Said goodbye to his momma, the boy had things to do 
  •  
  • Johnny come lately
  • walks to a different beat
  • I'm Johnny come lately
  • I wear the shoes right off of my feet
  • I'm Johnny come lately
  • I think to a different track
  • I'm Johnny come lately
  • But I'll be coming back
  •  
  • 2 years later Johnny's still walkin
  • He's out on the flats
  • runs across the chief they have a conversation
  • and the adventure just seems to last
  • from a watering hole deep in the nation
  • Johnny pours out his plan
  • chief said "that's the heritage trail,
  • John and you'll be back again"
  •  
  • You’re Johnny come lately
  • you walk to a different beat
  • I'm Johnny come lately
  • I might see your ass out on the beach
  • I'm Johnny come lately
  • I march to a different drum
  • I'm Johnny come lately
  • and I never learned to run
  •  
  • Johnny's on Wall Street feelin everybody's pain                 
  • we know that you've been knocked down                 
  • but your gonna get up again                 
  • now he's off to Austin and he finds some young band playing live
  • he love's the energy and the magic in their eyes
  •  
  • Johnny hears the desert crying                   
  • as he walks up the great divide                   
  • he calls out to the universe                    
  • may I speak my mind                   
  • father may I borrow the tears of time
  • to awaken the sleeping garden                   
  • and the heavens opened up to a symphony of rain
  • and ol' Johnny just kept smilin

Lyrics

they want a song that will last forever
but, I won't do it
they want a speech that goes on forever
but, I won't write it
they could build a car that would run forever
but, they won't do it


well, it's all good
when I'm dancing in my head
but today is my birthday
and I'd rather be in bed


I want my pets to live forever
but, they won't do it
last chance at a perfect picture life
and I get to be the good guy this time

CHORUS

it seems the story gets bigger
every time that it's told
well I'm running in place
because they got me on hold

Lyrics

off to work right on time
hates his job and his miserable life
always havin to chase that dime
to the other side ,well
on the train he keeps checking his watch
envies his boss and all that he's got
he's the boy that time forgot
and it's gettin painful                               

behind the 8 ball was a hidden door
stepped outside said "I ain't takin it anymore"
a culture shock to everyone 
who thought they knew him well
yes they thought they knew him well

hey there mr. black and blue
don't be the poster boy for the 6 o'clock news
Fox has got a beat on you

15 minutes of fame, boy
step out in the rain and shake it off
forget that 15 minutes of fame, boy
step out in the rain and shake it off

then the global band of light
swept across his lonely life
found himself a beautiful wife
now their headed upstairs
he and his dog walkin in the sand
all so clear I understand

15 minutes of fame
and they thought they knew him well
yes they thought they knew him well

CHORUS

Lyrics

I sleep with one eye open
in a restaurant my back is always against the wall
yea, I suffer when I see red lights flashin behind me
well, it's been that way for 30 years or more

but if it's a call to the reverie
use my voice and use my name
if it's a call to the reverie count me in boys
if it's a call to the reverie        
paint my face on sacred ground

I always wear these dark glasses, baby
there's just too much for me to see
when days turn into cartoons, crazy
another day in the life to bleed for me

CHORUS

I strut when I do the cat walk
compliance, that ain't the name of my mule
yea, I stutter when I see tattoos closing around me
well I shed my skin and write another tune for you

CHORUS

Lyrics


how far would you go
you won't know until you get there
how much is enough
time wears even on the beautiful

how deep is the well 
don't know cause I'm still falling
through a carousel
that bleeds out onto the boulevard

leave the light on baby
so I can find my way back home to you
leave the light on 
see how far we can go
tell me how far would you go

how does it feel
dancing with grace across the pond 
into the wishing well
hope springs eternal after all

CHORUS

Lyrics

I'm Czar of the city
I'm the keeper of the keys
I'm gonna give you a situation
you are invited for free
cordially


cause I'm Czar of the city
you already met my brother
I'm Czar of the city
I am the other


I was running to get away
I was trying to save myself as a boy
so I could see the light
where my dad had only felt the dark
yes, I could see the light 
where my dad had only felt the dark


well, then as a boy I felt the fire
and Lucifer took me for hire
and everybody came to the mourning of the shadowed soldier
I said that everybody came to the mourning of the shadowed soldier
the wheels are turning now

Lyrics


in my songs I give you my poetry
in my dreams I'm amazed to see that
there's a force too strong for me to deny
well, I'm gonna correct the problem in my very next life

and it's a long way to the top
take it down a notch
it's a long way to the top
take it down a notch
it's a long way to the top
take it down a notch

something in the air just dropped me to my knees,yea
made me think about the way my life's suppose to be
something in the voice just changed the mission
well, an open line of credit and a big decision

CHORUS

  • child comes to them in the form of a blessing
  • well, the kiss of night and you sleep with the lights on
  • and don't it make you feel just like a citizen
  • well, the crimes of passion in a blacked out lincoln
