about

A combined project long overdue. We had a great time putting these songs together. Some have been around for a while. Some are newly inspired. Hence the name "Junk Drawer".

Track Name: Reason
Reason

I’m pealing pages and your trying to stop the clock
Wilma’s in a rage The Hill’s crew want to rock
Moan’s late on rising Said he caught his heel on Jack
Billy’s in our prayers And we hope he’s coming back
Stevie’s down on Latah He loves the Satellite
Fly’s in a stew Rosie’s hot tonight
When they ask you, what you gonna say
Will you be strong enough, will I hear you say
That’s the reason

Annie’s got a heathen Willy’s got a Ruth
We all got our reasons but sissy’s got a few
Carey’s got the fever he’s living in Brazil
He helps unbelievers; he’s in the codicil
Gator’s got the pawnshop He’s selling blues to-go
Timmy’s got a flat-top and Midnight’s on the road

Everybody’s got a reason
Same as you and me
Takes you where you want to go
Takes you to your knees

When they ask you, what you gonna say
Will you be strong enough, will I hear you say
That’s the reason
That’s the reason
One world one sun
Are you gonna say

Track Name: Remission
Remission

I’m in remission from my condition
All my pain is dissipating and I feel I have grown
As for you symptoms just leave me alone

I’m in remission I still harbor suspicions
Cause I know you lie in wait deep in my bones
So don’t try and trick me Just leave me alone

So I say to this world I love the most
Raise your glasses for a toast
Here’s to deliverance and sweet remission

I’m on a mission with your permission
Cause I know I’ve got to tend all these seeds I have sown
I’ve passed the audition now I’m going home

So I say to this world I love the most
Raise your glasses for a toast
Here’s to salvation and here’s to redemption
I’m going fishing with cool remission
I love my remission I’m on a mission
In my bones in my bones is true remission
I’ve been delivered from my condition
With true remission
So I say so I say with cool remission

Track Name: Bye Bye Lover
Bye, Bye Lover

I shot my lover down
My baby, my darlin’, my sweetheart down
I shot my lover down
I put a bullet through her brain

I got sick of her playin’ games,
Callin’ me names, - And never takin’ the blame,
Now,she’s dead but it ain’t no shame
She was no good so she had to pay

Oh bye, bye lover
An apology just wasn’t enough
Oh bye, bye lover
There’s a hole in your head
I made damn sure you were dead

I shot my lover down
My honey, my sweetie, my soulmate down
I shot my lover down
I put a bullet through her brain

I got sick of her sittin’ around,
Never helpin’ me out,
And always messin’ about,
Now she’s dead, there ain’t no doubt
She was worthless so I blew her away

I dug a hole where her lifeless body would go
In the exact same spot where I proposed
I threw her way down deep along with my ring
Well so long you dead beat, revenge sure is sweet

Oh bye bye lover

Track Name: Eden
Eden

Come closer; don’t be afraid
Put your trust in me, cause I can show you things
The world is waiting; and it’s all in my control
And if you’ll let me show you
It’s yours to have and hold

Run quickly; don’t listen to his lies
He’s the great deceiver, best you run and hide
Cause when you taste it, things will never be the same
You’ll be free to wander; I’ll love you just the same

Lullaby, then I tell you why, then you own it
First you sing then your mine

Everything you need…could it be you don’t want it

Track Name: Coming Down
Coming Down

Wide open space calling me
World spinning under my feet
Faith trembles - What is this plan?
Game’s over - still hiding my hand

Wash away my sins I’m Coming Down
Lead me to my fate I’m coming ‘round

Things happen - no turning back
My choices - no knife in my back
Black hole where my heart should be
Why worry - this isn’t me

Wash away my sins I’m Coming Down
Lead me to my fate I’m coming ‘round
Love rescue me
Coming Down

Love blossoms - My roots grow deep
Hope crumbles - vines choking me
Gather my thoughts - Try making sense
Lost balance riding this fence

Wash away my sins I’m Coming Down
Lead me to my fate I’m coming ‘round
Break these chains I’ll leave it all behind
Stage this play the final act is mine
Love rescue me
Coming Down

Track Name: Shovel
Shovel

Well they say that there comes a time for leaving
Yes I heard but I never thought I’d see you today
You and me I’ll agree we got a good thing
But I just can’t believe these things that I hear you say
I can’t take it this way

Shovel start diggin’
Start diggin’
Shovel start diggin’
I’m tired of living this lonely life of mine

Now I see you had me for just a play thing
Well I must have been just a day to day thing to you
But it’s real what I’m feeling for you baby
But you say ain’t no way not even maybe I lose
What’s the use

I was alone when we used to be together
Tell all of my dreams goodbye
Now I’m alone and there’s no sense of doing it
I can’t take it can’t take it

Track Name: Nicotine
Nicotine

Nicotine ... nicotine
Sweet tobacco, if you know what I mean
Gimme a light, I'm a smokin' machine
Free my soul, I'm a slave to that nicotine

Nicotine for breakfast, on the way to work
Smoke my lunch, chew my dessert
Coffin nails, carcinogen
Feed my cancer with a Turkish blend

Ashes to ashes, butt to butt
Can I bum a smoke? I'm a nicotine slut
And if you don't have a smoke and if you don't have a chew
I'll eat the beer soaked butt from the bottom of your shoe

Nicotine ... nicotine
Sweet tobacco, It's a deadly routine
Please, forgive me if my habit's obscene
Free my soul, I'm a slave to that nicotine

I don't know why I want it ... I want it
I don't know why I need it ... I need it
You won't know why you want it ... you want it
You won't know why you crave it...

After a meal, after sex
I like to chew while I'm sleepin' but the drool makes a mess
Carbon monoxide, formaldehyde
'Scuse me while I step outside

Rotten teeth, zombie breath
Skin tinged yellow like the face of death
I tried the patch with the gum and a pinch of snuff
Up my nose, in my lip, I wanna shoot the stuff

Track Name: Roadsong
Roadsong

(Dum dum dumba-dum dum dum)

I called to let you know
That I’d be troubled if you were to come back
It’s such a slap in the face
To hear ‘em talkin’ bout the changes I’ve made
I guess there’s no more to say
You took the bait and took the weight off my back
See the man on the wire
It’s just my neighbor but I don’t know his name
He’s got a crack in the pot
It started rainin’
And it’s not gonna stop
It’s such a sad affair
He saw it commin’ but he wasn’t prepared

Track Name: Stella's Garden
Stella’s Garden

Take me down to Stella’s Garden
Where everything smells so sweet
Meet me down at Stella’s Garden
Fall in love with everyone you meet

Roll in the lavender beds
And vanilla brown truffles
Citrus and cinnamon
Raspberry ruffles
Breathe through your skin
Take it all in
I’ll twist some lime in your coconut
Drink in the essence
Scatter your troubles like
Ashes of incense
Soak up the rain Be born again

(chorus)

We’ll fall asleep beneath rainbows of
Soft summer showers
Dream in a bed of
Calendula flowers
Sail on the breeze
Capture some z’s
We’ll wake to peppermint tingles and
Fresh eucalyptus
Sip lemon-drop dew from
Your skin so delicious
Au natural Throw in the towel

Track Name: They Start Out Small
They Start Out Small


Even strong men tremble at the end of a gun
Does a bad man wonder ‘bout the things that he’s done
Will they look back on tomorrow………. just the same as today
Or does it make them feel hollow

I’ve seen the preacher wrestle with the power in his hand
And the rich man humbled…… by what the poor man said
And while the monies pile up ……….…the glass is runnin’ out of sand
He’s still got time for your confession.

You make the demons tremble with the songs that you sing
Yea you tried to kill ‘em but they came back again
Dead presidents……… Decorate the face of your king
You keep your enemies close at hand and some fool on a chain

I compromise but I’m never in love
I keep my heart on a string … there’s just never enough
I love the ocean breeze but I can hardly swim
I’d brave a hurricane to be your anything


I see the little babies sleeping and I’m hoping for the same
But there’s a thought I’m keeping.. and it’s running round in my brain
Some people…………………... never get a break it seems….
And some are just plane lucky


Everybody’s got it easy except my friends and me
Everybody’s got a dream or at least that what you say
Some are living theirs’ Most of us are living day to day
You say the grass is greener well the Jones’ ain’t your friend


It seems the road that I’m travelin’ has come to an end
Though it was easy to follow….. I wouldn’t recommend
Yeah a change is gonna come………….. With a smile on my face
Yeah a change is gonna come….

I compromise but I’m never in love
I keep my heart on a string … there’s just never enough
I love the ocean breeze but I can hardly swim
I’d brave a hurricane to be your anything

When a killer cries for mercy Do you want to go insane
Or maybe shoot the lawyers cause they’re guilty just the same
You can always hear them coming…… Are you hearing what they say
They start out small but they keep coming just the same
