Kool 04:03
i’m shakin but i think i’m getting better i’d call you but i am ashamed my feelings cannot write them in a letter i never meant to cause you any pain break me down again you can shake me down again he’s been cool since he was ten he was a soldier in a private army he hid boys hard and got a name he seems to be a little trouble magnet who never ever had a soul to blame break me down again you can shake me down again he was been cool since he was ten cool since he was ten i got to get away break me down again you can shake me down again he’s been cool since he was ten i’m shaking cause i’m getting older some say it’s a state of mind i’m weary cannot make it any further be patient ‘cause things will come in time break me down again you can shake me down again he’s been cool since he was ten cool since he was ten cool since he was ten cool since he was ten gotta get away away

Gone 03:59
fucked up again last night helter skelter on my radio slept in my truck last night and woke up to this cop knockin on my window i tied up this waitress in a hotel room in texas to what used to be the luggage stand the metal thing with four black bands i scratched a peace sign in the skin of her back... gone... long gone how to wear my fear so well a little trick i learned in jail and the picture that burned in my head was you sleeping in my bed i don't know why i killed that girl... gone... long gone well my old man looked like santa claus to me when i was small i was four he left to save the wicked world i hate that man that doesn't even know his only son is gone... strap me to the killing chair eyes wide open i can't see how all the power in the world will burn this badness out of me gone... long gone

i knew a woman of a thousand reasons she had an answer for everything. i used to kiss her, to keep her from speaking i've done the strangest things. i was a soldier and my anger was the weapon i drew the battle lines on every side. i built a prison and i called it freedom i've done the strangest things. i should have known there was trouble... the lie at the end of the tunnel was blinding... shake the rattle at the jungle wall, take the fire from the dragons jaw chase the devil from the neighborhood, just to watch him run. pound the drum 'till the wildman comes risin' from my soul again, feel the power in my hands... i'm a revolution man. i learned the language of the uninvited i learned to fool myself a thousand ways. i was the poet in the house of silence i've done the strangest things. i knew an old man with the face of winter he never noticed that the seasons change. i took his photographs and covered up the mirror i've done the strangest things. shake the rattle at the jungle wall, take the fire from the dragons jaw chase the devil from the neighborhood, just to watch him run. pound the drum 'till the wildman comes risin' from my soul again, feel the power in my hands... i'm a revolution man. rage, rage, rage... rage against the chains, chains, chains... shout about it. change, change, change... change is gonna come, come, come... shake the rattle at the jungle wall, take the fire from the dragons jaw chase the devil from the neighborhood, just to watch him run. pound the drum 'till the wildman comes risin' from my soul again, feel the power in my hands... i'm a revolution man.

Between 02:53 video
shadow under my skin blood and salt water high tolerance for pain this remembered sun this impossible sky i am a satellite i flow between the stones like a black river float on these hurtin bones on a black river behind the heroin eyes stream of unconciousness read between the lines try me with your heart come again, come again these are my hamilton blues i flow between the stones like a black river float on these hurtin bones on a black river wouldn't want to see me wouldn't want to be me...

Circus Song 03:50
drive me to some distant solar system i'll sing in the back seat of your car i'm the last one to recognize the irony of a black hole swallowing a shooting star it pains me to spin through this killing blue i can only wait here for you twelve moons of jupiter, no sign of the sun orbit is graceful, like a monkey with a gun it pains me to spin through this killing blue i can only wait here i am not your bloody supernova burning like a billion suns i am not your bloody supernova if you lose the invisible light, will you x-ray my soul i know how to use my fist, i don't know what this heart is for it pains me to spin through this killing blue i can only wait here (X 3)... for you...

Clean 02:56
cleaned up my mind today threw out all the things i hardly ever say won't need the line about the hole in my pocket no one believed it anyway give you my secret words give me a promise to remember them for me poems and pictures and a letter to my daughter every stupid trick i know to keep me clean show you my hiding place i am not afraid to let you know i bleed and if you stick me you will let the air out of me maybe that will make me clean i wanna climb into your mouth inside your belly don't spit me out i'm just a dog out in the rain too tired to run too dumb to stay

i am lazaurus jones skin like molasses seventh generation a long line a' bad asses bootlegger with a trunkful of cocaine and rose-colored glasses i'm standin by the ocean where my life begins i could carry this weight i could throw it in do the easy thing safe inside my head sleep in trouble's bed cigarettes and rocket launchers give leonard cohen his crack cocaine minding my soul and takin care of business last night i wrote a song i'll never sing... 181 kilometers south of the mexican border salsupuedes is a rock... and i'm just a ship under the water and this girl sleepin on the beach well she might be my daughter... i'm standin by the ocean where my life begins i could carry this weight i could throw it in do the easy thing safe inside my head i will sleep in trouble's bed sleep in trouble's bed
