I don't care if it rains or freezes Long as I got my plastic Jesus Riding on the dashboard of my car. Through my trials and tribulations And my travels through the nations With my plastic Jesus I'll go far. I'm afraid He'll have to go. His magnets ruin my radio And if I have a wreck He'll leave a scar. Riding down a thoroughfare With His nose up in the air, A wreck may be ahead, but He don't mind. Though the sunshine on His back Make Him peel, chip and crack, A little patching keeps Him up to par. When I'm in a traffic jam He don't care if I say "damn" I can let all my curses rol Once His robe was snowy white, Now it isn't quite so bright - Stained by the smoke of my cigar. If I weave around at night, And policemen think I'm tight, They never find my bottle - though they ask.

How to get out of this before the world collapses I won’t climb up to her window Now I’m on her side track I have to forget everything good bye bye she said She lifted me to the top then let me fall like a junk there’s always one last time I was lost in her crazy eyes It seems nasty but I wanna smell her again bye bye she said I presume to have left this one but I still get dizzy when I see her No time to settle down I got her last words Do you know what I mean? bye bye she said bye bye she said

Miles Down 03:30
In your defense I have to say I understand your necessary way As many stars as in the milky way Shadows don’t leave their prey Shadows don’t leave their prey Outlaw's den is your shelter when everything is away It is sure you see the night fall It is sure I see you get in trouble Danger knocks at your door when the darkness fall Someone told me you're messing around Stars don’t always show the way Dogs don’t always bark at the enemy You walk miles down the lane Why is there’s no a mother fucking train? You can breath the smoke under the thin rain A pale sun warms the rime The memory of the happy days faded you can't remember what you did last night On sunny days think of me till you see the rain falling over me You know how much time can we foresee?

Love is real. Since you left anymore The sun rises in the east an empty room shows you ain’t here I’m not good for you but nothing is real She never hid who she really was when everything seemed lost she had a suitcase ready I’m not good for you but nothing is real Time is a thief. I miss you since you go In the same corner I wait you come I wait see you coming I’m not good for you but nothing is real

No one Knows 03:09
No one knows my name no one knows what I’ve done I’m going down South won’t be back till fall A good man can’t sink but I left the bible / for a blonde girl “You may get better, buddy. But you’re never gonna heal” If you can’t make money, make friends Gold smell like a good girl, my father said Get rich or die trying I thought one dusty day “You may get better buddy But you’re never gonna heal” Life run fast under my damn shoes I will be known not to lose Lord, you see that lonely road, you know it has an end “You may get better, buddy. But you’re never gonna heal”

Gushi's Song 03:05
Gushi shines the day Gushi turns off your night Gushi runs with bare feet Gushi burns like the sun Hard as steel she surfs on the waves When nothing seems fun she takes the midnight train Gushi runs like fire Gushi kills you with a smile Gushi steals your heart Gushi turns you upside down She walks on the muddy ground where the homeless lie Life is not a fairy tale She cries in the loneliness I'm sometimes up I'm sometimes down Trouble will bury me. Trouble will bury me

Honest Man 03:42
Let me tell the story of the most honest man He worked hard for money and for his family He mistook night with the day He confused work with love he made excuses for not returning home never to return come home soon How many secrets can a man hide? A self-made man as a child he went to church Money burned like snow on his bare hands Behaved like a jerk. He was the wild one greed has no memory He loved other women and learned to give them up someone broke his nose someone broke his heart How much shit can a man hide? How much shit can a man hide? Divine season of roses with good folks and wine he was a bon vivant. Guilty is for the weak He can see the devil in the sky someone says, who gives diamonds to a tramp? He thinks I'm less than a dog How much shit can a man hide?
8.
The world swallows dreamers But it’s full of magic You don’t lose the calm for every snake that you find at your feet No one is happy with their luck. But you feed on chaos The rain soaks your dress You walk with puddles in the shoes All you want disappears under your feet the world starts to sink and you feel the call “L'appel du vide” Things break, things fall down. That's life From a rose, a petal falls A day of happiness begets a year of tears
