Let the Bold Die Old

|| Nashville Bound ||


Pack your bags, baby, I’ll pack mine
Flight 1941 is runnin’ right on time
Got my suitcase, Got this old guitar
Throw ‘em in my 4x4, men don’t drive a car


That’s why I'm headin’ down to Nashville, watch that hard rock die
Momma always told me, spread those wings and fly
That’s why I’m headin’ down to Nashville, watch that hard rock die


Road trip calls for a cold 12-pack
2 in the console, 10 are in the back
I’m on that high way, doin’ 95
Hello, Broadway here I come, it’s time to feel alive


That’s why I'm headin’ down to Nashville, watch that hard rock die
Daddy always told me, spin those wheels and ride
That’s why I’m headin’ down to Nashville, watch that hard rock die


Yo, and about half way through Kentucky, I looked down, I notice, I notice that…
Tank's on E, better fill it up
Gotta grab some beer, dip and a spit cup
So I took a little walk up-n-down the isle
Then greet the cashier with the midwest smile

“Where ya headed, boy?” he said to me
You got some wings now from from what I see
Only got one thing runnin’ through my head
I looked at him and then I said…


I’m headin down to Nashville, watch the hard rock die
Life has always shown me, sometimes leave it all behind
That’s why I’m headin down to Nashville, watch that hard rock die

Yeah…How ‘bout that?

|| Midwest Cowboy ||


Big man from a small town, Mid-America
Grew up the boss man of late night

Lil’ bit-a-rock edge, with a little blues
Get around on jacked mud tires

But no stick, no stone, ever broke a bone…
when ya toke a 7-fan leaf blend

Who needs some wife, some ball-n-chain...when ya...
Got a few thin girlfriends


Rockin‘ them Daisy Dukes
Stay out late n sleep til noon...come on!
‘Cause when you’re livin’ life to feel alive…
you’re a Midwest cowboy


Since Day 1, the gains on “10”
Want it up just a little bit more
Little Jim, little "green" since God knows when
Somebody better run and lock the door
'Cause when all through life ya got something to prove
but you all know where ya stand
Put your beers in the air, ‘cause here’s my salute
A big Midwest country, HELL YEAH


Self-made, well-paid, pull-the-trigger boy
Flew with the Old Crow a few times

Pick a little six string, sing a little tune
Maybe even threw back a few lines


…but when the day the tables turn
The scars ya got ya known you’ve earned, come on
‘Cause when your living life to stay alive
You're a Midwest cowboy



Saddle up, don't run and hide
You've only got one chance to ride...come on!
Cause when you’re living life to be alive
You're a Midwest cowboy


**********


|| Tippy Toe ||


Like what ya see?
Lay it on the line,
‘Cause I won’t hold you back

Blame it on the beer
Blame it on the wine
‘Cause I’m OK with that


She’s crazy eyes, sugarcoated, vaudeville eyes
Know how’s it’s gonna all go down from here

You just staked your claim, but I don't even know your name
better tippy-tippy toe around you


Ya got what ya see
Well now it's time
So let's get out of here

How ‘bout your place?
Or how ‘bout mine?
But the back seat’s fine with me


‘Cause she’s got crazy eyes, sugarcoated, vaudeville eyes
Know how’s it’s gonna all go down from here

You just staked your claim, but I don't even know your name
better tippy-tippy toe around you


You don’t know what you just got yourself into
You better count on the fact that I’m gonna see this right through


There's those crazy eyes, sugarcoated, vaudeville eyes
I know how’s it’s gonna all go down from here

You just staked your claim…
Better tippy-tippy toe the hell outta of here.


**********


|| Come-n-Get-It ||


So close your eyes and see what’s waiting on the other side
You will find the secret’s safe with mine
Let yourself go, breath deep, open wide

‘Cause honestly, you’re one step closer to on top me
Fantasy is now reality
Unlock your front door and I’ll meet you inside


Then reality bites you, reality fights you, then reality spites you
Then it all just fades away


You know you want it, come and get it,
baby, how does it feel?
You want it just a little bit more
Your intuition’s on a mission, only matter of time,
before we’re naked on the floor


One-on-one never felt so good, I think I’m gonna come...
...over now, the night has just begun
Let yourself go, breath deep, open wide


Reality bites you, reality fights you, reality spites you
Then it all just fades away




Don't be afraid of what I’m saying
You're headed toward the remedy
And you will find that you should
Open your mind to what I'm saying and
please hold on


**********


|| Joy Ride ||


Have I been driving way too long
Where do I go from here, from here
Do I turn this beat up car around
Nap in the back and not steer, not steer


So, pull over and unfold it all


This is just a joy ride.
With no lights on, trying my best to hide.
‘Cause until I take that curve, I’m almost there
Feel free to blindside me


Breathing all of this morning air
It can't be good for me, for me
With all this fog and smoke lingering
How can I even see, in me




Well, maybe...what I need...is a new route into the sun
But hold on, the trip’s half the fun


**********


|| Too Much ||

Don’t hate on me ‘cause I love too much.

Craving Fate
Guitars, Vocals: Joshua Surgeon
Drums, Bass: Tempest Houghton
Orchestral Strings: Scott Ross


Pickin' up the memories we left behind
Back to livin' days at a time

Scattered, vivid memories
Are let run free…It’s everclear

Lonely brings the partner by my side
Couldn't count the ways that I tried

Blinded by impressions
It's ever near. Soul imagine.


Fall into line...never fear your weighted mind
Now fall into line...bigger years will come in time

Pickin' up the pieces left behind.


Full-throttle ambition will soon unwind
Repetition proves love is blind

Pulsing with discretion
It's ever near.
Soul imagine.


Never repay the new days that find you
They won't mind

Never delay the new ways that define you
Define you


**********


|| Simulation Theory ||


I’m all wrapped up again
We’re passing through a simulation theory
Together, forever, yeah

Brace yourself, my friends
Passing through the simulation theory
Together, Forever


So what if we never really wake up?
Some might say, we’re dreaming, with meaning
Perfection is fleeting

Take your seat if you wanna
Some might say it’s all yours, it’s all mine
Universal alibi




What if it’s more than we imagine?
Free your mind
Round and round, no time for the weakness
Touch the sky




This life is passing by the speed of light
Coincidences, similar faces, Déjà vu, infinite spaces
Don't ever let it pass you by.




**********


|| Forgive You ||


No, you never found a reason to let go
But I forgive you, I forgive you, yeah
So, whatever the decision that you’ll show
I forgive you, I forgive you, yeah


How ‘bout a piece of anger breath
How about a piece of my mind
I’d rather keep moving on, gonna lay it on the line

We’re doing the best we ever did, we’re doing the best that we can, we’re learning as we go, so hold onto my hand


Don’t turn the light on, I’m not what you’re fighting now
I forgive you
Lend me your warm heart, it’s bright as the morning sun
I forgive you


No, I’ll never let the sun go down on this
I forgive you, I forgive you, yeah
Won’t you let me end all this with just one kiss
I forgive you, I forgive you, yeah




**********


|| Ohio in July ||

All the photographs remind me
Of other days just like this
Those busy days with no agenda
Yeah, you know all the things we miss
It’s gotta be…Ohio in July.

With the grills marks burning on the sausage
12-pack of Corona with a lime
And no clouds, sun beating on me
I could do this all the time

It’s gotta be Ohio in July
In Ohio in July
In Ohio in July
In Ohio in July
Yeah, my, OH, my

With the windows down, speakers turned up
Highway wind rush through my hair
There’s just a 1/4 tank of gas left
But it’s to nice to even care

It’s gotta be Ohio in July

From the snow that falls in April
To the freezing rain in May
It’s the month right after June
that makes we wanna stay


**********


|| Bedroom Eyes ||


It's 6am, we're half asleep
Your body warms me while your iPhone goes beep

Roll over, dig into me...claiming your agony
Clear those eyes, but don't make noise…'cause I still sleeping in!


It's 10am, alarm 2
Now all that I can think about is you
The silence starts to loom...your silhouette haunts the room

And I smell your skin, it’s sinking in...and now I’m on the edge


‘cause what i'm waiting for
Are those bedroom eyes
So come back home
And stay with me tonight


But as the daylight fades away, the moon, the stars fill up the sky
You’re on my mind and you will find that you and I should never say goodbye
