Track Name: Goodbye Colorado
I'm so damn thirsty,
but this town is so damn dry,
it scares me, just a little,
I'm not gonna lie,
when shots fire off in the night,
I can't help but feel uptight,

I'm so damn hungry,
but my bank account it is broke,
my hands won't quit their shakin,
I'm in dire need of a smoke,
this desert is so goddamn lonely,
I have found, I can't get my heart up off the ground,

so its goodbye Colorado,
I'll be seein you again,
California is callin,
and I have got to go my friend,

my time, my time spent here,
I guess it wasn't all that bad,
when I figure in, all the good times,
all the good times, we had,
but I'm ready for something more,
so I'm gonna walk through,
gonna walk through that door

and its goodbye Colorado,
I'll be seein you again,
California is callin,
and I've got to go, my friend,
yes I've got to go, my friend
Track Name: Busy Bee
Shes such a busy bee,
ain't got no time for me,
so I sit alone again,
by this old riverbend,
pour myself a whiskey drink,
sit back and try to think,
if there is any way,
to make her want to stay,

I guess there are other fish out there in the sea,
maybe even one who wants to give her lovin to me,
for who I am, yeah for who I am,

now I can't figure out,
what this ones all about,
its such a mystery,
why she'd be kissing me,
only to leave me dry,
without good reason why,
I like to think that I'm,
a fairly decent guy,

I guess there are other fish out there in the sea,
maybe even one who wants to give her lovin to me,
for who I am, yeah for who I am,
Track Name: Let's Go
I've got time and nothin but it honey,
for you and me to wander around,
and though neither of us has any money,
I got a feeling that we'll be safe and sound,

I've got dreams of packin it up with you,
and setting out for the wild unknown,
to say farewell to this great pacific ocean view,
and hello once more to the land in which I was grown,

I can feel the glory of those rocky mountains,
of which you've never seen but pictured in your head,
and they are callin us to come and drink up from their fountains,
and they are promising that we will be well fed,

so let's go,
let's go,
let's go,
let's go
Track Name: Truth
Well I'm up in the mornin for a wake n' bake,
sittin round waitin for the day to break,
I try and tell myself that it wasn't a mistake,
but the actions on my mind,
yeah the actions on my mind,
I said the actions on my mind,

I try and pick myself up off my bedroom floor,
and get m'self goin out my back door,
I'd go down to the liquor store,
if only I had a ride,
if only I had a ride,
if only I had a ride,

now my heart is cold in great despair,
gotta be careful with what I share,
be a real man and grow a real pair,
if only I had the time,
if only I had the time,
if only I had the time,

I'm up in the mountains in the winter snow,
and I'm out in the sun in ol' Pueblo,
wonderin where'd all my money go,
I thought I still had a dime,
I thought I still had a dime,
I could swear I had a dime,
or a nickel, or a penny, or somethin in my pocket,

and all these days of my youth spent sittin around,
I'm askin myself why I'm always down,
instead of gettin up and movin cross the ground,
I watch the time go flyin,
I watch the time go flyin,
I just watch the time fly by,

meanwhile, all these people ain't got no homes,
and everybodies scared of being left alone,
they're all clingin onto their new cellphones,
hopin to hear from friends,
yeah they're hopin to hear from old friends,
hell, they're hopin to hear from anybody

and myself I cannot make the rent,
I'm better off livin in a one man tent,
little bit of money I had I spent,
on whiskey, weed, and wine,
on cigarettes, and fryin,
on women that leave me cryin,
on things that ain't worth buyin,
on things that ain't worth buyin,
on things that ain't
on things that ain't
on things that ain't
no you know they ain't worth buyin
