Life During Plague Time cool desert night, silver moon stars so close you can touch days just follow each other nothin changes much then the shit hits the fan and there’s nowhere to stand and you can’t believe it’s true it’s a once in a lifetime end of the world and it’s happening to you you need some good information you need someone to believe you need a gun, or somewhere to run to you wanna hide, you want to leave and the president says it’s no big deal but you know that president lies every time that president moves his lips innocent people die it’s grandpa’s old depression happening at the speed of light it’s xanax and tequila you still can’t sleep at night you put on your mask and gloves do what you can to survive hope like hell the people you love will make it out alive

Chicago 04:49
Chicago Halstead Street in a smoky bar a ghost straps on an old guitar takes one last drag on his cigarette settles in for the final set a shot of whiskey, a hidden gun a flash of lightning on highway 61 In chicago he hits a lick like a lightning flash sings a story of a one car crash taking flight on a freeway ramp smell the fear coming off his amp you can almost see that t-bird flying you can hear his guitar crying in chicago lays his guitar in a battered case wipes the sweat running down his face he drinks one last round, shakes one more hand decides to leave while he still can he leaves the blues hanging in the air they wait for you. you’ll find them there in chicago

In My Arms Again it’s a time of beginnings. it was dark as night i was standing alone when you walked into the light I had eyes for you only see, i’d almost died from lonely but from our first kiss i knew that it was right and it hasn’t been easy we’re both strong, slow to give in compromise and desire words burn like fire you kiss me, my world starts to spin you’re in my arms again there were others before you sweet temptation, dancing and wine they were never as real as they seemed at the time Chorus talking, loving, by the fire under the stars time could stop and the world could end as long as I’m there where you are and you’re in my arms again I know you’ve had lovers babe, their ghosts are just like old friends and I hope they’re smiling when you’re in my arms again cause nothin else ever mattered, you’re in my arms again
