Big Wheels 04:04
BIG WHEELS Five weeks on the road I'm driving the hypnotic trance of a straight line mile in and out of every town in between my heartache and your smile I find myself driving through the wind and through the rain and everything is moving to the rhythm and refrain Hear the gears engaging see the seasons changing those big wheels rolling around gonna take me back to you One hundred miles east of Flagstaff Arizona and I'm so far away from you I know some people there gonna make me feel alright even if its just for an hour or two I find myself driving through the wind and through the rain and everything is moving to the rhythm and refrain Hear the gears engaging see the seasons changing those big wheels rolling around gonna take me back to you (solo) I find myself driving through the wind and through the rain and everything is moving to the rhythm and refrain Hear the gears engaging see the seasons changing those big wheels rolling around gonna take me back to you

REPTILE STORE Won't you come down with me we'll go to the reptile store Gonna look at the lizards, turtles, snakes, and bugs Maybe we'll take a couple lizards home maybe we'll leave those lizards alone Won't you come down with me we'll go to the reptile store Well, I know a kid who like to go to the reptile store He said it happened to him a time or two before Five minutes after he walked through the door he was crawlin' on his belly like a snake on the floor Well, I know a kid who like to go to the reptile store And there once were a couple of turtles named Andy and Pete When it came to playing checkers they say they couldn't be beat Maybe when we go to the store we're gonna learn just a little bit more about the legend of a couple of turtles named Andy and Pete, oh yeah! Ooh ooh,... Now deep down in the swamps of Georgia there's a snake in the tree and that black racer snake will chase ya; he's as mean as can be So boy you'd better listen to me, you see the snake in the tree you better let him be Deep down in the swamps of Georgia there's a snake in the tree Now the alligator is the biggest reptile around Swimmin' in the swampy waters are where they are found I once knew a poodle who stood too close I heard a splash, turned around, that poodle was toast! I said the alligator is the biggest reptile around So you better just look out! So won't you come down with me we'll go to the reptile store we're gonna look at the lizards, turtles, snakes and bugs Maybe we'll take a couple lizards home maybe we'll leave those lizards alone Won't you come down with me we'll go to the reptile store

SPARK OF DESIRE The moon is high and shining on her face her lover's lips are tasting gentle kisses Water laps upon the shore the flowers in his hands explore islands of their ancient wishes Can you feel it touch your skin? Could it be that you and I knew one another in some distant lifetime? When the land was open wide and yearning for the sun to fill it's oceans with your sunshine Can you feel it touch your heart? We are the laughter and we are the children The fire is hot in the Summer sun A dry wind blowing in the thirst of our touch you are the spark of desire and I can't get enough (solo) We are the laughter and we are the children The fire is hot in the Summer sun A dry wind blowing in the thirst of our touch you are the spark of desire and I can't get enough The moon is high and shining on her face her lover's lips are tasting gentle kisses...

Badass Bike 02:50
BADASS BIKE First time, I couldn't believe my eyes second time, I prayed to the skies third time, when I rode with a friend Straight away rollin' at a hundred and ten Fourth time, now there's no turnin' back I got the fever baby, yellow and black Shiftin' gears in and out of the lines Twist the throttle, open up the good times I said, Goddamn that's a badass bike Goddamn Goddamn that's a badass bike Goddamn, Goddamn That's a badass One hundred sixty seven horse power gonna send you to heaven If you don't know what I'm talkin' about You better listen boy you better watch out! Another rider was runnin' with me I passed him by doin' one-sixty-three He caught up to me at the fillin' station Now here's the gist of our conversation he said,... Goddamn that's a badass bike Goddamn Goddamn that's a badass bike Goddamn, Goddamn That's a badass One hundred sixty seven horse power gonna send you to heaven If you don't know what I'm talkin' about You better listen boy you better watch out! Goddamn that's a badass bike Goddamn Goddamn that's a badass bike Goddamn, Goddamn That's a badass

LEVIATHAN DREAMING For 16 years after the sky had fallen I went out to sea hunting whales with a harpoon gun I fed my great country I stood at that gun held in cold suspension watching, waiting, ready to fire on the life that fills me with desire Leviathan dreaming until the end of time I can hear you singing in the shadows of my mind Day after day on the open ocean I'd rise for work before dawn eyes trained on the icy water so quickly they are gone Leviathan dreaming until the end of time I can hear you singing in the shadows of my mind Leviathan dreaming until the end of time I can hear you singing in the shadows of my mind I live my life as an old man now taking people out to see

VANILLA SKIES The laughter filled your eyes that sunlit morning when we realized our love was gold it was meant to be but then a tidal wave washed over me And the wind is blowing across vanilla skies I hear you whisper "open up your eyes" And all I'm left with is this broken face and circumstances that I can't erase open up your eyes I can't wake up from this endless dream can you hear me in my silent scream? I took a turn when I left your place and now the winds of change are blowing they're blowing in my face And they're blowing across vanilla skies I hear you whisper "open up your eyes" and all I'm left with is this broken face and circumstances that I can't erase Open up your eyes... Vanilla skies Vanilla skies Oooh,... If I could I'd see you in the morning sun there'd be no other 'cause darling you're the one But I was careless with my romance now I'm begging you Lord for a second chance And the wind is blowing across vanilla skies I hear you whisper "open up your eyes" and all I'm left with is this broken face and circumstances that I can't erase And now I'm beggin' for a second chance 'cause I was careless with my romance (solo) Open up your eyes Vanilla skies Open up your eyes
