Track Name: Ten Years Dead
1. Ten Years Dead
I’m not quite sure what I see in you
Maybe it’s something ‘bout your pale green hue
Or is it the way that you walk so slow
With your arms outstretched baby I don’t know.

Your eyes are bloodshot and your hair is a mess
Eating brains is what ya do best
You walk through the streets late at night
And I can’t seem to put up much of a fight
Ten years dead but ya still treat me mean
You’re my zombie lover, my zombie queen

Ladders in your stockings and a tear in your dress
I look at you and don’t care less
People think that you’re real mean
But I knew you before you were green.
Ten years dead and ya still treat me mean
You’re my zombie lover, my zombie queen.
Track Name: Outlaw
2. Outlaw
He heads towards the sunset, with his six guns by his side
Shoulders hunched his brim real low, keeps the glare from his eyes
Dirt around his face and the dust settles on his boots
Riding west where the sun will set, heading to his roots.

He killed some men not long ago in a gun fight on the street
The sound of their deaths, a memory he will always keep
It was an act of vengeance but the law’s not on his side
And if he don’t want to hand to the west he must ride.

Chorus
Forever now an outlaw, with a price upon his head
Got to keep on running, or end up dead
His act of vengeance is fulfilled, but his heart is filled with dread
The last time he was home, there was a bullet in her head.

He had shot and killed 2 men for the act that they had done
One was the local sheriff, the other man his son
They been to his home when both were worse for wear
Raped his wife and killed his kids with not a single care.

Chorus
Track Name: Cleopatra's Eyes
3. Cleopatra’s Eyes
I’m not quite sure what I see in you
Maybe it’s something to do with your pale green hue
Or is it the way that your walk so slow
With your arms outstretched when I sure don’t know.

Your eyes are blood-shot and your hair is a mess
Eating brains is what ya do best
You walk through the streets late at night
And I can’t seem to put up much of a fight
Ten year dead but ya still treat me mean
You’re my zombie lover
You’re my zombie queen

Ladders in your stockings and a tear in your dress
I look at you and don’t care less
People think that you’re real mean
But I remember before you were green
Ten years dead and ya still treat me mean
You’re my zombie lover
My zombie queen.
Track Name: Keyboard Warrior
4. Keyboard Warrior
He tap on the keyboard words from his head
Sitting in his flat on a dirty old bed
Half eaten pizza in a dominos box
Laying on the floor next to discarded socks.

Scratching his chest through a food stained vest
Thinking about a person he can write about next
His words are cold and he really doesn’t care
Who he attacks coz he isn’t there.

Chorus
He’s a keyboard warrior, staring at a screen
Feels really big coz he can’t be seen
A keyboard warrior in a dirty string vest
Tapping out crap of no interest.

It doesn’t really matter what he writes
Coz everybody knows that he’s full of shite
Sitting in his room all alone
Friends list getting small on his phone.

Chorus
Lead break x 3
Repeat 1st verse and chorus
Lead break and out
Track Name: Treat Me Right
5. Treat Me Right
I was cruising around town it was late last night
When my eyes they beheld such a beautiful sight
I rubbed my eyes to see if it was true
She was a brown haired baby with eyes of blue

Treat me right

I walked up to her and asked her name
She said it don't really matter but just the same
Well if you want you can call me sue
Now take me home and show me what ya can do

Treat me right

Repeat second verse

Treat me right x 3
Track Name: Old Jack's Bone
6. Old Jack’s Bone
Here is a story you don’t know
Poor old Jack is on his own
Used to have a girl but she did him wrong
This is the reason for my song

Now Jack was a player and he was cool
Ain’t gonna be nobody’s fool
Treat him bad he’ll treat ya mean
Treat him good he’ll flick your bean.

Chorus
Well Jack was cool but Jack was quick
May have to finish with a candle stick
Give Jack a call on the telephone
You may get to ride on old Jack’s bone

But if it’s love that you desire
You gonna have to set jack’s heart on fire
Give half an hour if ya want more fun
Not gonna be ready til our song is done.

Chorus.
Repeat first verse
Track Name: Three Jacks
7. Three Jacks
Verse 1
I'm sitting in a bar smoke in the air,
Staring at my hand only have one pair
Looking at my cards shall I bluff or fold
Chips on the table blood runs cold
Got five cards looking back at me
Gonna keep two and throw away three
Deals three more from the top of the pack
Turn them over for one more Jack.
I got 3 jacks

Verse2
I've got three jacks looking back at me
A queen and heart with the number three
Place my bet and I raise ten more
Tapping my feet on the bar room floor
Looking at my hand with my poker face
I can feel my heart begin to race
man sitting opposite is starting to sweat
What's he gonna do will he fold or bet.

Middle 8
Well I got three Jack looking back at me
I got a queen and a bright red three
He turns his cards over and what did I see
Three fucking queens looking back at me.

Well I got three Jack looking back at me
I got a queen and a bright red three
He turns his cards over and all I could see
Three fucking queens looking back at me.

Lead break x2

Verse 3
I throw my cards down in despair
Sitting in the bar with smoke in the air
I lost my house and my car keys too
Not quite sure what I'm gonna do

One more hand will my luck change
My girls’ eyes are filled with rage
That made my mind up ready for me
I'll bet my girl against your keys

Track Name: Crossroads
8. Crossroads
I made a pact with the devil that day
Deserted cross road on the old highway
Sold my soul just to help me play
But I know one day I’m gonna have to pay
I sold my soul to the devil that day
I got nowhere to run and nowhere to hide
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

The devil said son, your soul is mine
Play your guitar go have a good time
Then one day when your time has come
You know you’ve got nowhere to run
Coz you sold your soul to me that day
You got nowhere to run and nowhere to hide
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

Chorus…..
I played in nightclubs and in bars
Stayed in motels with my guitar
Playing for my food and I’d dance for a bottle of rum x 2
LEAD BREAK …. X 2

Well I made a pact with the devil that day
Deserted crossroads on the old highway
He said now son ya better fuck off and play
I’m coming to collect on our deal one day
I sold my soul to the devil that day
I got nowhere to run and nowhere to hide
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
Track Name: Moonshine
9. Moonshine
It's been sometime since I had a drink
Doctor told me son ya got ta sit down and think
What I used to drink was whiskey and wine
Now my favourite tipple is a glass of moonshine

Chorus
My heads In a whirl my mind can't rest
Moonshine baby is the one that does it best.

Used to have woman that loved me so
Then one morning she got up to go
Said I didn't love her or give her any of my time
That's why I started drinking moonshine

Chorus

Sitting on my own and I'm having a drink
Got no time just to sit and thing
What I used to drink was whiskey and wine
Now my favourite tipple is a glass of moon shine

Chorus
Track Name: Life Ain't Fair
10. Life Ain’t Fair
Well girls don’t look at me except to laugh
Can’t even see my dick in the bath
Think I’m coming to the end of my game
Can’t play bass in my zimmer frame.
I’m a rockabilly but I have no hair
Really fucks me off coz life ain’t fair.

I walk past the mirror, who the fick is that
When I see myself in a pork pie hat
My belt buckle sits on the very last hole
Never say no to a bacon roll
Been a long time since I touched my feet
But I still love the sounds of a rockin’ beat.

My ears are getting better and my eyes are dim
My favourite jeans I can’t fit in
My guts always rest on the top of my bass
And I’ve a lot more wrinkles on my face
I’m a rockin’ guy but I have no hair
Really fucks my off coz life ain’t fair.
Track Name: Do You Believe In Werewolves
11. Do You Believe In Werewolves
Walking home, late one night
When the moon was full and bright
Heard a howl and began to run
Didn’t want to miss out on all that fun.

Walking home late one night
When the moon was full and bright
Heard a howl and began to run
Didn’t want to miss out on all that fun.

Late at night we’d roam the streets
Ha ha, ha ha
Want to eat the people we meet
Ha ha, ha ha
I ran to join my werewolf pals
Oh oh, oh oh
My mind was warped, and so were my cells.

Late at night we’d roam the streets
Ha ha, ha ha
Want to eat the people we meet
Ha ha, ha ha
I ran to join my werewolf pals
Oh oh, oh oh
My mind was warped, and so were my cells.

Do you believe in werewolves
Roaming through the night
They wander through the streets and houses
No, it just ain’t right.
They wander through your town
And through your neighbourhood
And now and again, their teeth are glistening
With your human blood.

Walking home late one night
Ha ha, ha ha.
When the moon was full and bright
Ha ha, ha ha.
Heard a howl and began to run
Oh oh, oh oh.
Didn’t want to miss out on all that fun.
