Track Name: Much Obliged Blues
Went down to the east side
Looking for a good old friend of mine
Daddy said I don't belong here
I just told him I know

The sun beat down burning my skin
Then from the alley he appeared
Said "Hey boy, how'd you like to make a deal?"
I told him I'd be much obliged

He said just give me your soul forever
and I'll give you the mind of god 'til your body dies

With a snap of his fingers he unlocked his briefcase
In a puff of smoke, produced the contract
The letters all glowed gold
The color of my greed

He told me to sign on the line
And handed me a crimson pen
I felt my eyes dilate
As soon as I signed my name

He laughed and said pleasure doing business with ya
I told him the pleasure was all mine

Now every time I look in the mirror
I see old satan laughing back at me
In my past in my future
Even in my dreams

But I don't regret a thing
Just listen to me make this guitar sing
And I can see the good and the evil
Inside of everyone's eyes

And now I know why I can't see anything in mine
Track Name: Coyote Run
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Stay still don't make a single sound
We were never here

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

I know where you're from
And I know where you're going
But I don't know why you'd want to stay there
Wish that I could tell you not to be scared
But life's not always fair
Anywhere

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Stay still don't make a single sound
We were never here

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

You don't even know my name
And I won't remember your face
But I am gonna see you again
Hope that you buy some nice shoes to wear
You gotta be ready to run
Up here

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh
Track Name: Capitalist Bastard
We sailed out with our gods and weapons
To conquer the world and rename it west
Enslaving, raping, appropriating
And everywhere we went we left a trail of death

When we come to your town you better show us around
Or we won't even bury your body under the ground
After we leave your family's still gonna bleed
No life ain't fair but it's free

And they call me the capitalist bastard
Because I come from money
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
And we keep it all in the family

And they call me the capitalist bastard
Because I come from money
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
And we keep it all in the family

So pull yourself up by your bootstraps
Just work hard and you'll get ahead
But I never had to learn to run to fast
When everybody's boots were made of lead

And I never had to worry about poisoning the well
Cuz' I don't have to drink flint's water
And I always got another solution to sell
As long as they keep buying plastic bottles

And they call me the capitalist bastard
Because I come from money
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
And we keep it all in the family

And they call me the capitalist bastard
Because I come from money
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
And we keep it all in the family
Track Name: It Just Didn't Work Out
It just didn't work out
No need to cry about
It just didn't work out
Don't even try to lie
To yourself
It just didn't work out

Why didn't you say
You were going away

I guess that she just doesn't wanna see
Just how good we could be
I'm a really really really nice guy
Just as long as you'd let me
Be a possibility
I know that I could make you so happy

Uh actually, uh actually, uh actually, uh actually

But
It just didn't work out
No need to cry about
It just didn't work out
Don't even try to lie
To yourself
It just didn't work out

I don't know why
You thought I was your type of guy

Can't you see that we would never work out
Even if I would try
But I'm still glad that you gave me a chance
To get into your
Memories
I hope that I made you happy

But now you've got to go
It's getting late
I have to work
But you're a real fun date

All alone again
It's just the pain of being man
Waiting for the right one
To come and hold my hand

But ya know that's kind of an antiquated idea
I mean it's twenty-nineteen
Maybe I should try polyamory
But that won't help me with the jealousy
When everybody's got one foot
Out the door
Looking through every window
For something more

But
It just didn't work out
No need to cry about
It just didn't work out
Don't even try to lie
To yourself
It just didn't work out

And it's probably for the best
Track Name: I Hate Donald Trump
I hate Donald Trump
He's a lying cheating con-man
No one should have listened to him
Cuz' he's a power hungry racist villain

And I wish that this wasn't the case
Cuz' he's the president
Of the United States?

But he's corrupt
And incompetent
I can't read the news for more than 5 seconds before wanting to kick him out of office
And see him behind bars
Because he's hurt so many people
And every day he hurts so many more

I wish he had never been born
That would make life so much better
For everyone
But now he'll be remembered forever
We'll mock his name through all history

I hope he goes to jail for the rest of his life
For promoting white supremacy
Sexually assaulting dozens of women
Obstruction of justice
And human rights abuses

We all really hate you Donald Trump
Everyone who still supports you is a chump
Cuz' you're a lying billionaire who doesn't care
And it's so painfully obviously clear

Why we hate you
You're a terrible president and a horrible pathetic person
Just get out of our country

Cuz' every moment since your inauguration
You've made America worse than it was before
The only way to make America great again
Is to get you out of office and into jail

So I hate Donald Trump
He's a lying cheating con-man
No one should have listened to him
Cuz' he's a power hungry racist villain

I hate Donald Trump
he's a lying cheating con-man
No one should have listened to him
Cuz' he's a power hungry villain

I hate Donald Trump and I know he hates me too
Cuz' he hates knowing the truth
And tries to tell us it's fake news
I hate Donald Trump
And so should you, too
We all hate Donald Trump
And Donald Trump hates us, too

I hate Donald Trump oh I hate Donald Trump
I hate Donald Trump oh I hate Donald Trump
I hate Donald Trump oh I hate Donald Trump
I hate Donald Trump oh I hate Donald Trump
I hate Donald Trump oh I hate Donald Trump
I hate Donald Trump oh I hate Donald Trump
I hate Donald Trump oh I hate Donald Trump
And the only good thing you can do is step down
