Track Name: Leave this dust
I've chased old dreams
from days gone by
I wake up in the night and ask myself just why
ask myself just why

I've chased the ghost of things
That could have been
I believed there was a chance they'd come back again
and maybe I could win

Chorus:
I've chased old ideals of what once was
I don't understand I guess somebody does
I'm gonna pack my things and leave this dust

I've embraced some things
a multitude
and I've faced some things but kept my gratitude
I've managed to elude

And I've searched the earth
High on a hill
I looked all around it dawned on me what's real
It burns inside me still

Chorus:
I've chased old ideals of what once was
I don't understand I guess somebody does
I'm gonna pack my things and leave this dust
Track Name: The Emperor of Colorado
1st:
The Emperor of Colorado
At the Christmas party
in an old black tux he borrowed
Showed up in a lime green El Camino
a car that he had bartered
from a short stint in Del Rio

Chorus:
He said to hit the floor
Couldn't take it anymore
Then he pulled his little friend
stationed by the open door
The saddest the thing of all
He didn't want to hurt no one
But this life had got him down
Was his only mother's son

2nd v:
The Emperor of Colorado
Had a semi-normal childhood
Even though he missed his father
The Emperor of Colorado
Had his hopes and dreams like anyone
A broken path to follow

(Chorus)

3rd V:
The Emperor of Colorado
Looked out at his world
with suspension and bravado
The Emperor of Colorado
today he lost his job
reached the end of a short rope

(chorus)

Track Name: Leave this dust (demo)
I've chased old dreams
from days gone by
I wake up in the night and ask myself just why
ask myself just why

I've chased the ghost of things
That could have been
I believed there was a chance they'd come back again
and maybe I could win

Chorus:
I've chased old ideals of what once was
I don't understand I guess somebody does
I'm gonna pack my things and leave this dust

I've embraced some things
a multitude
and I've faced some things but kept my gratitude
I've managed to elude

And I've searched the earth
High on a hill
I looked all around it dawned on me what's real
It burns inside me still

Chorus:
I've chased old ideals of what once was
I don't understand I guess somebody does
I'm gonna pack my things and leave this dust
Track Name: Broke down in Yazoo (demo)
1st V:
Someone sold me a lame used car
a little cheap paint and bondo to hide the scars
then I hit the pothole of life
broke down in Yazoo on a Saturday night

2nd:
I called Lolita at the Voodoo room
said can you come get me and be here soon
little drinking might set me right
broke down in Yazoo on a Saturday night

Bridge:
Stuck out here on the tough side of town
you get to thinking
you tend to take stuff for granted 'till it start to clinking

3rd:
I know I've made mistakes
cut people off, hit the brakes
but Lolita like the bad boy type
broke down in Yazoo on a Saturday night

2nd Bridge:
Stuck out here on the tough side of town
the time don't fly
left to my devices, it's enough to make a grown man cry
(repeat 1st V)

Tag:
I've been playing with dynamite.
broke down in Yazoo on a Saturday night
pretty soon I'm gonna have to hitch hike
broke down in Yazoo on a Saturday night
