Track Name: Long Gone
Long Gone By Dave Scott Flores
It’s a lonesome task for a day long duel,
This empty glass that never seemed so cruel,
And if you ask me if I’m running out of fuel,
It’s gone, long gone, thank god.
You wait in lines and you cross them too,
Here’s to hoping some of your dreams don’t come true,
There just below your feet and right above your head,
They’re gone, long gone, thank god, long gone.
I have a mind to keep what’s mine, if nothing is
Why should I keep trying to turn a tide if the sea is dry?
It’s gone, long gone, thank god.
If not for wisdom, grace, mercy, and love
We’d all be beneath the sea with no help from above,
The good lord has your back but the devil always fronts,
A little lamb goes to heaven because lions need to hunt.
I’ll grow a ghost, I’ll keep the morning all day long,
But first here’s a toast to the places we belong,
They’re just below your feet and right above your head,
They’re gone, they’re longing, long gone.
Why should I keep trying to turn a tide
If the sea is dry?
It’s gone, long gone, thank god…
Track Name: Monk on Fire
Monk on Fire by Dave Scott Flores
Should I try to wrap my mind around
All this dire shit that’s going down
Or look away and play a fool?
Or I set myself on fire like a monk
With no desire to stay cool.
It’s too fucked up to start again
I don’t know, no, I don’t think so,
There’s too much love and luck my friend
I don’t know, no, I don’t think so.
Or I could wrap my mind around
And just stare as it burns to the ground
Don’t look away, but play it cool.
Track Name: Papers
Papers by Dave Scott Flores
All my papers scattering in the wind and float away,
Ok.
I won’t go trying to chase them down or find a paperweight,
No way.
If I find all the fun, I promise that I’ll save, I’ll save you some.
And all my papers crumpled up in the fire and set to blaze,
That’s my fave..
Cause I won’t go trying to put it out, in fact I’m going to feed the flame,
Today.
If I find all the crumbs, I promise that I’ll save, I’ll save you some.
All my papers in a box and buried way down in a cave,
Ok.
I won’t go trying to dig them up cause I know what they say,
Anyway.
If I find all the fun, I promise that I’ll save you some.
Track Name: Foolproof
Foolproof by Dave Scott Flores
Good god I can’t take much more,
Before I use this trap door that I found
In the floor.
Hanging in like a loose tooth,
Hair-brained then foolproof,
Where I turn is what I see,
Don’t you know what I mean?
All this madness is insane,
Have all the people lost their brains? Yeah.
If I never cringe again, it’s because I stopped looking.
Good lord what a goddamn mess,
Just close your eyes and you can get some rest,
So when you wake up and its gone..
Where’s this love for the love of god?
Is it way down low with the wounded dogs,
In their hell, to help a friend?
To make a start from an end.
And the shit-show must go on,
Does it have to take so long? Yeah.
If we never love again,
It’s because we stopped looking..
Track Name: Come in the Sea
Come in the Sea by Dave Scott Flores
I want to go come in the sea,
I hope you will be there with me.
Track Name: Feel Your Pain
Feel your Pain by Dave Scott Flores
You are safe, but you are stranded,
On your own, but not alone.
Your shadow is cast, goes where you go,
With shaking hands, you understand.
I love you more than ever before
Cause now I feel your pain.
You juggle knives with your eyes closed,
It’s no problem to, I’ll throw mine to you.
You levitate whenever you want to,
You’ve got a gift, hey can I get a lift?
I love you more than ever before
Cause now I feel your pain, your pain.
Track Name: Someday
Someday by Dave Scott Flores
Where are you hiding, babe, from me?
Where are you hiding, babe, from me?
I’ve got a good thing that I haven’t yet seen.
Maybe someday it will come to me,
Out of nowhere without even trying,
Maybe someday it will come to me.
They say love is in the air,
And you can feel everywhere,
They say love is here to stay,
And that it always finds a way.
Maybe someday it will come to me.
Out of nowhere without even trying,
Maybe someday it will come to me.
Track Name: Crosshairs
Crosshairs by Dave Scott Flores
Take the crosshairs from off his head
Of our young man could wind up dead,
Let him live on for one more day,
Let him find a better way.
Track Name: Then I Saw You
Then I Saw You be Dave Scott Flores
I had no idea,
And I had no clue,
I never saw nothing,
Then I saw you.
And our love is easy,
Cause my worries were few,
I never needed nothing,
Then I saw you.
Do you see?
Do you?
