Track Name: Mississippi Sweat
Hey Mississippi won’t give me some of that gold
Sippin’ from the cup just to tease my soul
Mississippi sweat you’ve done ruined my life
What I'd do for just one more night

Sharp snake bite that is quick to kill
Waitin in line just to tease my thrill
Mississippi you’ve done run my mind
Livin in the lust that you leave behind

Mississippi sweat now
God youre so damn hard to kill
All the ways you keep me coming for ya
Way down way down
Coming for ya love
Ah Mississippi sweat now
Just a 24 hour thrill
All the ways you keep me coming for ya
Way down
Coming for ya love

Standing at my door, so late at night
Bourbon in your breath, and your dress so tight
Mississippi sweat you’ve done ruined my life
What I'd do for just one more night
You keep me runnin

(x2) Mississippi sweat now
God youre so damn hard to kill
All the ways you keep me coming for ya
Way down way down
Coming for ya love
Ah Mississippi sweat now
Just a 24 hour thrill
All the ways you keep me coming for ya
Lookin right, so crazy in ya
Track Name: Upside Down (Ashtray)
It's not a sunny feeling
When she's gone
It's the good home bad
And the right gone oh so wrong
I'm just sippin on healing
Trying to ease my withdrawal
Can't recall what was said
But I know what was said
Is what ended it all

It's an ashtray
Smoking softly
Trying to ease my pain
And I'm falling
Fast in fearing
On what is left to pay

I hear you raven
Yeah you're calling my name
See last night I shook hands with the devil
But I made it back okay
Hungry for your late night
To satisfy my sin
You told me you were leaving
But I'm still waiting for you to come back in

It's an ashtray
Smoking softly
Trying to ease my pain
And I'm falling
Fast in fearing
On what is left to pay
Now I'm trying
Not to focus
On what's going around
For oh my darling out love's
Gone upside down

For what ended, so abruptly
Seems to be dragging on
It gets hard to find distraction
In this house, when you're alone
I keep hoping, I keep praying
I keep crying for more time
Even through bourbon and smoking
You're making me making me
Lose my mind

Chorus
Track Name: Signs of Trouble
He keeps his cocaine
In a John Lee Hooker case
Listening to the radio
Just to get him through the day
Oh Mr boss man
No he wont work for free
Tries to shut his eyes
But his lady just wont let him be

Signs of trouble, water on the road
He tries to fight his way on through
Hut the world won't let him go
Signs of trouble, good things in his way
Oh Lord, just get me through the day
Track Name: Top Bombs
We'll feed on broken waters and ignore what's torn
While the piper keeps on playing to the kingdom throne
Our leaders will start kneeling when it's their time to stand
While fear is setting into the house grown man

Like gas we'll get on used to at the expense as it rise
In the shadows the money demons won't be far behind
We will work ourselves to death to try to stay alive
We will soon live with the devil in mind

Top bombs sere hearin' to an earless tune
'Bout them fold blue waters how our fathers moved
They'll point at you with their fingers and tell you how to live
If someone tells you to jump off a bridge

The world won't know forgiveness, our lives will soon be lost
They'll take us to the bottom and make us think that we're on top
Oh tear drops a drippin' down a dark dose of winter whelm 
Without a fire feeling limitless, his own name we fell

Top bombs sere hearin' to an earless tune
'Bout them fold blue waters how our fathers moved
They'll point at you with their fingers and tell you how to live
If someone tells you to jump off a bridge

It's an angel cry, demon roar
Be careful to your knees when they hit the floor
We're following this nation only under one man
We're climbing broken ladders sittin' on loose sand

Top bombs sere hearin' to an earless tune
'Bout them fold blue waters how our fathers moved
They'll point at you with their fingers and tell you how to live
If someone tells you to jump off a bridge

Top bombs sere hearin' to an earless tune
'Bout them fold blue waters how our fathers moved
They'll point at you with their fingers and tell you how to live
If someone tells you to jump off a bridge
Are you gunna jump off that bridge?
