Track Name: Check Your Pulse
Ain't something beating?
Cut off your feet if
you can't feel it inside your chest
If you don't use 'em,
you're gonna lose 'em
Why ain't you movin' like the rest?

Get yourself up
Shake your soul
Check your pulse, it's getting too low

Sit back, relax
The song has moved on past
It's too late to take it back
And your line is lookin' flat

Your legs are rooted,
Your walls are bloomin'
Just keep it up and you'll turn to stone
Inhibitions
They keep you wishin'
But you gotta hit the ground to roll

Get yourself up
Shake your soul
Check your pulse, it's getting too low
Track Name: Ode to Marla
My baby woke up this mornin',
headed to the liquor store
She quit smokin' them cigarettes,
she just started drinkin' more
As the sun was comin' up,
she was comin' down

One more bottle is all she needs,
I know that is a lie
My baby's biggest problem ain't her habits,
it's the fact that she won't die

Gather 'round, let me tell you 'bout
a crazy little queen I know
She's about as wild as a man possessed
and her eyes will steal your soul
Every night a different tale,
ain't a word you can believe
'Cause she's on your mind when she's in your life
You can't tell her when she leaves

Well the woman ain't got no car,
so she's always stealin' my wheels
By the time that bottle's gone,
she'll be dove into the pills
Never one for the Percocet,
but she'll swallow up some Xanax

One more bottle is all she needs,
I know that is a lie
My baby's biggest problem ain't her habits,
it's the fact that she won't die

Yeah she carries herself in circles
and she gives out guilt for free
Saint John follows her home at night
so he'll always know where she'll be
When the sun is comin' up
and she is comin' down

One more bottle is all she needs,
I know that is a lie
My baby's biggest problem ain't her habits,
it's the fact that she won't die

Well she's at it again with them cigarettes
Lord, she's headed for the street
She ain't got no fear
'cause she knows that she won't sleep
As the sun is comin' up,
she'll be steppin' out

One more bottle is all she needs,
I know that is a lie
My baby's biggest problem ain't her habits,
it's the fact that she won't die

I would if I could,
but I can't, so I won't
You should if you could,
'cause I'm not the one you want
This bullshit back-and-forth-again
is takin' its toll on me
You keep hangin' around like you got no choice,
but I never said you couldn't leave
Track Name: Louisville, Kentucky
We were looking for the heat,
but we lost it in the fire
The flames are getting closer
You know the straits, the straits are getting dire
Love plans for tomorrow,
Loneliness thinks of yesterday
And if one would stop and listen,
what do you think the other'd say?

I didn't get all I wanted,
but I got all I could stand
The chips are on the table,
it's time to deal out the last hand
The boat's been rockin' baby
We've had ourselves a rough trip
Better batten down the hatches
I think it's finally time...
To abandon this ship
Track Name: Wear It Out
I gotcha
Got whatcha need
You watch the moon,
I'll plant the seed
I'll scratch your itch,
just make the call
And I'll get you up
too high to fall

I'm feelin' sly,
I'm everyday
I'm lookin' fly,
You know the name
When I hit the block,
hear what I say
I'm on the snap,
and this suit don't play
I'm gonna wear it out

Funky Junky
moves along
Bedhead Ted
won't get the phone
Ape in the middle
ain't ever home
And ole Snortaline
won't leave me alone

Ain't got no money?
Ain't got no time
I'm stealin' yours?
You're wastin' mine
Can't squeeze a quarter
outta two dimes
I start to move,
you throw a line,
I say you wear it out

Ain't no sweat
when I tap the root
When it's gettin' ripe
I take the fruit
Handful of queens,
it's hard to lose,
but I got the one
knows what to use

And my baby
don't mess around
She call me home
when I'm on the town
I'm talkin' business,
she say "No sir"
I'll bring the lovin',
I'll make her work
I'm gonna wear it out
Track Name: Jailhouse
I see them stares, I know what's behind them eyes
I see them stares, I know what's behind them eyes
Wanna steal my soul, keep it locked up with your lies

Said hey lil mama, I know just what you want
Say hey lil mama, I know just what you want
Wanna keep me trapped on the inside of your palm

Say a backdoor man just ain't good enough?
So a backdoor man just ain't good enough?
Wanna be a backdoor lady, no lady don't act so rough

Gonna find me a ball and hook it to a chain
Gonna find me a ball and hook it to a chain
'Cause bein' with you baby, you know it's just the same

Got me in the jailhouse, locked up for life
Said you got me in the jailhouse, locked up for life
Guess I'm gonna move on down to the next town and find me another wife
Track Name: Speakeasy
Well I was walkin' through the bar
and I wanted to talk to ya
Then you started walkin' faster
You musta seen my eye on ya,
you got shy on me
Then you started walkin' faster

I said now don't keep a walkin' baby,
come back to me darlin'
Don't keep a walkin' away
Come on back over, honey,
and let me show ya, sugar,
show you how I got it made

And since we're already here
let me speak easy in your ear
Yeah since we're already here
let me speak easy in your ear

Well I know you get it often
but we're just talkin'
You know you weren't foolin' me
Oh the band's playin' a song for us,
let's dance the next chorus
Come on baby, groove with me

You know you're lookin' mighty sweet,
and you're so light on your feet
Ain't no need to think it over
Why don't we step on out?
I'll show you what I'm about
You know the door is movin' closer

And since we're already here,
let me speak easy in your ear
Yeah since we're already here,
let me speak easy in your ear

Well you're gettin' up my hopes
'cause you're slidin' so close
Girl you make my heart beat faster
And you were walkin' up the stairs
so I had to stop and stare
And then you started walkin' faster

I said now don't keep a runnin' baby,
I get we're foolin',
but you know I just can't stand losin'
Oh we're makin' quite a fuss,
why don't we turn the music up?
Tell the neighbors we were groovin'

And since we're already here
won't you speak easy in my ear?
Yeah since we're already here
won't you speak easy in my ear?
