Track Name: Santa Fe
You made me in a whorehouse down on main street,
The highway’s the only home you ever knew,
Your whole life you’ve been running,
My whole life I’ve been gunning,
And now I’m gunning for you.

I’m yearning for a little bit of vengeance,
By morning I’ll be on my way,
Another shot of tequila,
And I’m headed out from Gila,
‘Cause last I heard you were drinking Santa Fe.

Santa Fe,
Where the sinners all get pardoned,
Santa Fe,
Where the suns hot in the sky,
Santa Fe,
Where hides go to be hardened,
Santa Fe,
The place you’re gonna die.

I remember when I was a young boy,
Mama told me just who you were,
She said "boy no one could save you,
From the fact he's the man who made you,
But you can fix it all if you put him down in the earth"

Santa Fe,
Where the sinners all get pardoned,
Santa Fe,
Where the suns hot in the sky,
Santa Fe,
Where hides go to be hardened,
Santa Fe,
The place you’re gonna die.

The moment I get you,
I’m headed for the Rio Grande,
And you’ll be buried with my sins,
Under six feet of sand.
Track Name: Two Thirds Truth
I once found safety in a dangerous place,
I once found guidance in the lost,
Found shelter in the shadows of a limbo state,
And never gave it a second thought.

I once rode horses where the buffalo lie,
Up near Yellowstone Park.
I once grew flowers in the summer rain.

The tribes gathered round the mountain,
I'm told I was there too.
And if the third tablet was broken,
Then we're living with two thirds.

I once found safety in a dangerous place,
I found myself in you,
And I found that the only soul a man's got,
Is at the bottom of his shoe.
Track Name: Mile off from Zion
Bible says help your neighbor burdened,
Bible says don't muzzle the ox,
Got my muzzle but the wagon keeps on rolling,
And my neighbors burden has been left on burning rocks.

I told my brother stop this inquisition,
Told my friends to let their freedom go,
Told my eyes to start learning,
But I know there ain't much to know,

Well my eyes have been widened but I still can't see,
Commandments have been written but I just can't read,
Fire's been burning now it's burning me,
So I'm left with some strangers and some weed.

Well the Lord takes away and the Lord gives,
Lord had mercy on my soul,
Lord made women from Adam's rib,
Just so he wouldn't be alone,

And I've been led to the land of the lost,
By a shepherd who doesn't know my name,
I've been given a string and a rock,
Goliath stands in my way,

Well my eyes have been widened but I still can't see,
Commandments have been written but I just can't read,
Fire's been burning now it's burning me,
So I'm left with some strangers and some weed.

And now I'm a mile off from Zion,
And I'm a thousand miles away from the past,
We split the seas in search of freedom,
Hoping we'd find truth at last.

Well my eyes have been widened but I still can't see,
Commandments have been written but I just can't read,
Fire's been burning now it's burning me,
So I'm left with some strangers and some weed.
I'm left with some strangers and some weed,
I'm left with some strangers and some weed.
Track Name: Tenochtitlan
Big rivers got a big mouth,
Alexandria and New Orleans,
Hate the sights but I love the sounds,
The machinations of the ghetto scenes,

Gulf coast over to Tijuana,
Kerosene and marijuana,
Burnt the flora and ate the fauna,
‘Cause there ain’t much separating a man from a dog.
Life was slow so I made it faster,
Whipped the slave and became the master,
Stopped a grand disaster with a Stratocaster,
And sold my soul to a hummingbird god.

Put a bullet in the wise man,
Put more ashes in the tray,
Block the path of the blind man,
Dampen the spirits of the gay.

Can’t see nothing in this smoking mirror,
Every day it gets a little less clear,
I have nightmares about drowning in tear drops,
(Skip a line)
Don’t tell me that it’s okay,
Lost my thoughts in the cocaine,
Lost my friends for the propane,
So I sold my soul to a hummingbird god.

Oh ooooohhhh,

Well I’ve found myself on the losing end,
All I’ve got to lose is my life,
I’ve seen fields of golden grain,
Cut down by a rusty scythe.

I was on a bus headed south from Bisbee,
All my sins, I took them with me,
Head down to Mexico City,
To give my heart in the temple of Tenochtitlan,
And all the sands they blinded me,
I found myself surrounded by fire,
There was blood in the sky,
And I sold my soul to a hummingbird god.
