Track Name: The Stand
I’m livin’ in the back of my Hummer.
I’m livin’ in the back of my Hummer.
Times are tough, they cut my pay.
The banker took my house away.
I’m living in the back of my Hummer

What do I do with all my suits and ties?
What do I do with all my suits and ties?
I got laid off, don’t need ‘em no more.
I’ll give ‘em to the Goodwill store.
That’s what I’ll do with all my suits and ties.

I can’t seem to find another job.
I can’t seem to find another job.
I’m 42 and I’m frustrated.
It seems that I’ve become outdated.
I just can’t seem to find another job.

So what to do when the unemployment’s gone?
So what to do when the unemployment’s gone?
I’ll sell my Hummer and buy a tent.
It ain’t much, but it’s cheap rent.
That’s what I’ll do when the unemployment’s gone.

When they finally come for my guitar,
Oh, when they finally come for my guitar-
Looks like it’s time to make a stand
They’ll have to pry from my cold, dead hands
They’ll have a rough time when they come for my guitar.
They’ll have a fight on their hands when they come for my guitar.
Track Name: The Edge Of Life
He wasn’t smart or dumb
Waiting for his train to come
Didn’t have much to lose
But he lost it all
In the market free fall
Watched it all on the news

Living on the edge of life
Living on the edge of life

The gold haired wild child
News is gonna get ‘em riled
Bought himself some cold steel
The thin haired silver gray
He chose a few words to say
He’s gonna be some big deal

Living on the edge of life
Living on the edge of life

He’s living in a quagmire
A whisky bent hellfire
Rides a rust-bucket Ferris wheel
But he don’t care
If all the locals stare
There’s only one thing he can feel

Living on the edge of life
Living on the edge of life
Track Name: I'm a Sinner
I'm the kinda guy
Who lives up in the sky
I'm a soaring, flying thing
I touch the stars each night
I like their shiny light
Sparkling like a diamond ring

I don't know what's going on
I don't care to think too long
It's all part of my device
I'll escape, my way
And live my life each day
Flying high up in the skies

What'd you expect from me?
Hey now, can't you see?
That it's much too late
For me to deviate
I'm a sinner, so I sin.

I'd like to think, someday
That there might be a way
That I'll land back on the ground
But 'til it's safer there
I'll just stay up here
Circling higher, round and round...
