Brother Ely 03:28
As a boy they told him he would surely die. He looked up to the heavens and not a tear was in his eye. Laying on his death bed they all gathered round. Cause there was no grave that could hold his body down. Oh Brother Ely sang with praise. He sang himself right into the grave. He drove into town in an old black Cadillac. Until he saves your soul he’s never going back. He played his songs in the center of town. And he praised the Lord and he drove their evils out. Oh Brother Ely sang with praise. He sang himself right into the grave. They came to the chapel from the old Kentucky hills. From working in the coal mines and the giant lumber mills. He sang like an angel and the sweat poured from his brow. Until he sang so hard that the Devil brought him down.

Across the choked horizon the smokestacks rise The heat shimmers upward distorting my eyes Dust devils race each other creeping towards me slow Thin veils of smoke fill the flatlands below Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning, Pueblo’s burning The edge of town swallows the prairie The building drives the big machine It says everything about us and what we really need Edge city is growing like we’ve never seen. New temples spring up overnight Asphalt lakes flood the scrubland Roads roll out connecting town to town Traffic feeds our existence that creates the smoggy clouds

Hey Jim 03:55
Hey Jim where are you going Hey Jim where have you been Sitting alone out in the desert With your piles of junk and all your sins Watching the brake lights fade into the distance As the alcohol dances on your tongue Listen to the trucks start their downshifting Under the stars all alone Hey Jim where are you going Hey Jim where have you been Hiding under you faded awning Staying clear of the mid day sun Another day amongst the scattered rustin cars And piles of who knows what Not caring of the worlds trials and tribulations Talking to no one but your mutt Hey Jim where are you going Hey Jim where have you been Your trailer sits above the Arkansas By a long slow rolling bend The river turned and heading east You watch it swirl and flow away You think about the past and all the good times And what could have been your yesterday
