Midnight From the Inside Out
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

You, with your fast and furlined mind
With your disregard of time, virtue, horizon
Here where the angels never sleep
Where the water's dark and deep
You breathe molasses

Chorus:
Midnight from the inside out
Turn around and they all fall down
Screaming red and the lights go out
Turn around and they all fall down

You, madness dripping from your tongue
While starting at the sun
You speak explosion
Up, with the flies around the moon
Needle, mirror, spoon and cotton candyback to top
Lickin'
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

Your eyes they look like two bullet holes
And you don't ever say maybe
You knock me out with the way you talk
I like the way you say baby
You want a mouthful of scorpio
Yeah, but my poison be tasty
You bite my finger and say 'control'
You won't let me be lazy

Chorus:
Night and day like a mule I'm kickin'
Girl you gonna catch a lickin'

Fire out of the mouths of babes
Got you actin' so crazy
Doorknob queen of the underage
Got me rantin' and ravin'
See the bruise you left on my page
Now the game's getting tricky
Left alone in my own parade
While the bomb just keeps tickin'

Chorus

Do you want to do it all with me
Do you want to scream and bleed for me
You can have all of me, all of me
Your teeth taste just like razorblades
Yeah you got my tongue ready
You fill me up with your politics
And leave me so heavyback to top
Come On
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

Are you feeling me groove ya
Do it get right to ya
Do it creep right on up in your bones
We be frightfully righteous and
If you don't like us man
Take your ear holes and go home
Bye bye go home

We got just what you need
We brought you the remedy

Chorus:
Come on come on
Let's get this thing started
Come on come on
Everyone
Come on come on
You know we're right on it
Come on come on
It's on

We ain't foolin' we ain't playin'
Lay it down no complaining
Pick it up and break some for you
So get on up out your seat
Because you make this scene complete
And we really like to stick it to you
Yes we do

We got just what you need
Remember the remedy

No Use Lying
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

You come in the room and you close the door
And you let me see what you're really here for
Then you lay me down in an unmade bed
And you show me things that aren't easily said
Working in circles and twisting away
Making it hard to breathe
Touching my skin
I don't want it to end
I'm gone and you can't catch me

Chorus:
There's no use lying
Because I've heard all your bullshit before
You've said your old line for the very last time
Don't want you round my backdoor

She says my name and it takes me away
A kiss on my brow and I'm here to stay
When the clock chimes twelve
And we're down on the floor
She tells me things I've never heard before
Working in circles and twisting away
Making it hard to breathe
Touching my skin
I don't want it to end
I'm gone and you can't catch me

Losing My Mind
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

Every time I fall
I bring you along
Because I need you there
Every time I leave
For my selfish things
I know I'm wrong

No matter what I want to believe
Nothing like this comes easily

Chorus:
I love you, yes I love you
Even though I know I should stay away
Because I hate you, yes I hate you
Even though it looks like I'm going to stay
And I think that I'm losing my mind

My time in the dark
Was tearing me apart
And that's not okay
A man of blood and bones
Alone on his throne
Could walk away
Oh how your web has been spun
And I'm out of my mind
And it ain't no funback to top
Ozone Mama
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

It's a trip y'all
Git hip to this y'all
It will git ya'll
Gonna hit y'all
Never quit y'all
Right in the middle of our minds
The bug that bit y'all
Make ya itch y'all
Inch by inch y'all
Til your tall y'all
See it all y'all
Near and far y'all
We won't ever let it drag
This funny feeling got me reeling
Like I'm walking on the ceiling
Do it to me now

Chorus:
Ozone mama lay your daddy down
Under the stars right down on the ground
Mother nature got me thinking
'bout the love that you've been bringin'
Do it to me now

C'mon the ride y'all
We provide y'all
It's like this y'all
Never miss y'all
Git up and go y'all
Ya never know y'all
We be the bottom of your bag
Give a call y'all
Anytime y'all
Don't be slow y'all
Ya gotta know y'all
On with the show y'all
Bring it all y'all
We don't ever have to brag
Well you got this poor boy thinking
Your lovin cup I've been drinking
Do it to me nowback to top
Greasy Grass River
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

Now I'm swimming in the greasy grass river
On my way to the black pearl sea
Yeah I'm floating down the greasy grass river
Come one child come with me
Life is so easy on greasy grass river
Just take my hand and we can pretend to be free
You wanna be
Free
Come on with me

Take me down to the greasy grass river
Wash my hands where the water is clean
Lay me down by the greasy grass river
And unfold my mystery
The greasy grass river has water that whispers
Let's listen closely while
She says she wants to be free
You wanna be
Free
You know what I mean?

Outro:
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mind
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mind
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mind
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mindback to top
Soul Singing
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

I've been down
Cascading and blue w/out a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk & honey
Lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Let's disappear and we'll hide underground
We'll get high and we'll feel safe & sound
It comes around arayayayound

Chorus:
You got my soul singing my soul singing
You got my soul singing my soul singing
You got my soul singing my soul singing
You got my soul singing my soul singing

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life's a smile not a frown
The sound
The sound

Miracle to Me
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

So come on off of your rooftop
Come on down to the street
I've got something to tell you
You're secret I will keep
Tell me why have you been crying
Why won't you look me in the eye
I'm just trying to help you
I just need to know why
Please won't you let me try

Chorus:
Be my secret, be my joy
Be a miracle to me
Be my lover, be my friend
Be a miracle to me

I want to sleep in your moonglow
In my mind you're smile I keep
Head over heels I go
Like a dream from a peaceful sleep
This time I know I'm in deep

Young Man, Old Man
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

It's been tough, livin rough
But you're here stay
Six feet under the ground
Is not as hard as it sounds ok
Gittin' high, seein' with three eyes on a rainy day
Been dusted, busted, blown away
Gittin' in your ear, nothin' to fear
Let the music play
Big or tall, it's gonna hit you all
Or get out the way
Come along baby, soundin' strong baby
What I say
We all got lines and at the end
We all gotta pay

Chorus:
Young man crazy
Old man wise
Some folks real
Some just jive
Young man crazy
Old man wise
Sun stars earth
Moon sky tides

Murder in mind and this time baby it's for real
Take the devil aside it's time to make the deal
Wash the blood if you want
But the truth you can't conceal
Gonna roll on driving wheel

Cosmic Friend
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
It's not everlasting
It's bound to turn around
Need a little sweetness
A little reason to your rhyme
I got something for you
A little sugar for your mind
Hear the bells ringing
Send it down the line
Thank you for the sharing
I get you back next time

Chorus:
My friend the cosmos is calling
Sayin' we all should be shining

Don't you be a stranger
We like you hanging around
Be thankful of the laughter
Praise for the sound
When you're feelin lonely
You know just what to do
Put on track eleven
Get on with the groove

Chorus

Now we've reached the ending
I'm sad this song is gone
But we can start at the beginning
And we can all sing along

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
It's not everlasting
It's bound to turn aroundback to top
Cypress Tree
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

So you found yourself a killer
The one with blue eyes
I guess the bloodstains on the blanket don't lie
Well I guess I saw it comin'
Like a boy I just kept runnin'
But through this crime I have survived

Chorus:
They're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
The crowd gonna cheer when they see you swing
Yeah they're gonna hang you from the cypress tree
Tell me now do you believe?

Glory hallelujah
I raise my glass up to you
And I bow my head with utmost respect
But I think it's only fair to warn you
That there's a storm that's coming up on you
And like the wind and the rain
My words are direct

Chorus

It's a funny word 'friends'
You get beginnings and you got ends
I guess I'll see you when we're ashes againback to top
Lay It All on Me
Written by: r. robinson & c. robinson

Come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
It's okay to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

Do you remember when it started
You had a dream
Now you never talk about it
Your fame & riches were everything
No matter what the cost
Now you wish you hadn't blown it

Well lay it all on me
Lay it all on me

Come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
It's okay to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest awhile

I came to see how you were doing
It's been awhile
Lookin back over your shoulder
You were restless and you were wild
Always running away
Once was young now is older

Lay it all on me, lay it all on me

Come on down crooked man
Step on up broken man
It's okay to cry troubled man
Just ease your worried mind and rest a whileback to top
