Track Name: Opry Burning Down
call it a wasteland, i still call it my graceland/ this place is home when there's no where to go/ i can't escape it and i feel it in my bones/ this place is home when there's nothing to show/ and i can feel it in my bones/ where 24 burns 65 and 40 rips through the inside/ opry's burning down tonight/ and that opry's burning bright, tonight/ call it a wasteland, i still call it my graceland/ it takes it's toll when the days pass by so slow/ that belt gets tighter every day now don't you know/ abandon hope and the poverty just grows/ where 24 burns 65 and 40 rips through the inside/ opry's burning down tonight/ and that opry's burning bright, tonight/ there's no place like home
Track Name: Drugs Aren't A Fad
oh no!/ rail'n lines in my history/ who i am and who i want to be/ don't offer up no apologizes/ oh no/ i've been snortin' demerol/ whiskey, water back, alcohol/ life don't make much sense at all/ oh no/ knock me back another round/ look out the shit show's back in town/ don't i make my daddy proud/ oh no/ i was only twelve years old/ when took my first taste of alcohol/ i knew i was finally in love/ all right/ pissed around the block/ and i've sucked that needle dry/ and i've smoked that shit 'til i passed out/ and i've been left drunk to die/ so i'll put it up my nose/ and put up a good fight/ cause it's drugs and drugs and rock n' roll/ even if it all ends tonight/ oh no!
Track Name: Self-medication
between world war three and my tv/ there's no reason to believe/ in anything or anyone/ god is dead/ pack up, move on/ i won't justify my life/ i do what i do to get by/ for better or for worse/ here's to the fucking noise/ and to every brain cell that i've destroyed/ here's to feeling fucked up all the time/ i'm on the devil's doorstep/ no place i'd rather be/ i've felt the embrace of this medicated grace/ no god can set me free/well i'm way too drunk/ and i'm way too high/ as i drift away, i'll wave goodbye/ so i just sit here/ and drink these beers/ and sing those goddamn songs/(and it's hard to walk away from this)/ and know that better days/ those brighter days/ the best days are still to come/ and in my life/ i've paid my dues/ i've counted misfortunes two by two/ there's no remorse for being a dollar short/ but i'm through with self-destruct/ and wanting things that i haven't got
Track Name: Chester Lampwick
you say you've got the way/ you say you've got the truth/ you say you got the way/ you sell it on tv/ you accuse the masses/ (you buy it, you buy it, you buy it, you sell it)/ you preach and you judge/ and you judge as you preach/ you spit and fuck like any other being/ what makes you think that you're doing any better than me/ i think you're more of a waste/ you fucking hypocrite/ you spit out so much shit/ do you even breathe?/ your rhetoric is flawed/ the shit you spit/ it makes it harder to breathe/ the way you live your life/ it makes it harder to believe
