Colin M. Ever wonder what would happen if the Blue Stones, Black Keys, and Ozone Mama went on tour and made an album out of it? This fun and catchy blues rock is what my mind thinks would be the result. Favorite track: Midnight Train.

I’ve been a soulless child I’ve been a soulless child I was a messed up kid with a thorn in my side They said ‘I bet you die young son’ ‘Yeah I bet you die young’ That might be, we’ll see If death catches up to me So who are you trying to change my ways? Oh, you see I’m burning and burning all the way through ‘Til I get back to you I’m coming back to you I’m coming back to you I’m coming back yeah This is a dead end town This is a dead end town Nothing here for an eager young man to be found So we’re filling our whiskey Act on bad ideas We’ll burn this town to the ground If that’s the way you like it son Restless night, I can see the light burn bright A reckoning, I’ll return the night And all this time we’ve been growing apart, my love You see I’m burning and burning all the way through ‘Til I get back to you
2.
Oh, as the stars, shining bright like a diamond Your face is like a red moon turning white Oh, as the levee breaks down You gotta see whatever you, whatever you can find in this Oh, hey jewel, what you gonna do with this Oh, hey jewel, blood moon’s howlin’ back at you I keep it shining, shining so bright I keep on hold on, holding on so tight Ah when you’re howlin’ at the moon I keep howlin’ at you Oh, as the stars, shining bright like a diamond This chase is like a red room turning white Oh, when the heavy breaks down You gotta see whatever you, whatever you can find in this I said you I keep on swinging, I keep an eye on you I keep on swinging, I keep an eye on you I keep on swinging, I keep an eye on you

Shakin' 03:33
I’ve got a strong shiver rolling up my arm I’ve got a strong shiver rolling up my arm I should’ve spread my net I should’ve pulled my break I’ve gotta strong shiver rolling up my arm I’ve got no plans to ever go back home I’ve got no plans to ever go back home I’m too exhausted now, that I’ve come this far I’ve got no plans to ever go back home You see me wandering down the street and I’m shakin’ You got me climbing up these walls and now I’m breakin’ I cut my fingers to the bone and I’m bleeding out I come around I come around I come around I come around With this sweet pill I rest until this day With this sweet pill I rest until this day My veins are hiding now and I can’t slow down With this sweet pill I rest until this day

Solitary Man 03:22
On the border of the delta lived a solitary man Who laid his hand on his Bible and swore he’d never drink again It took him 45 seconds to finish another round It took him one whole hour to lay with his face down He was sent out to serve in 1945 To the Tinian Island were he maintained a B-29 It was a pitch black night at 02:45 Twelve men and one Little Boy took their flight to the sky It’s all gone he said As the code turned to red And the drop from a plane is 53 seconds away For a solitary man For a solitary man He left the war with his thoughts on Enola Gay Came back to the states, where everything had gone away The war took his will and his friend took his better half Nothing left but the bottle, and the faith that he never had For a solitary man For a solitary man

Black Gold 03:04
I hold my head just like a wrecking ball I loosen my belt and pull the needle out Ain't got nothing that can bother me I'm over the moon, baby can't you see? That I go wherever it may go Black gold, got me in its control I’ll chase the rabbit for another round It's a good 4 hours til I lose my ground Don't you recognize it, can't you see? It's the Devil's kiss that got a hold of me That, I go wherever it may go Black gold, got me in its control Wherever it may go Black gold, got me in its control That, I go wherever it may go Black gold, it’s got me in its control I go wherever it may go Black gold, it’s got me in its control I hold my head just like a wrecking ball The Devil's kiss, got a hold of us all

400 Hours 03:47
It’s been 400 hours since you left me on my own 400 hours since you left Within 300 hours, man I got my body shot By a pistol to my chest and now I rest I rest, with a gun hole through my chest I rest, with a gun hole through my chest You pass me by at the graveyard just to read my name in stone Lay down beside me for a prayer Beg to God won’t you bring him back, I can’t afford a day Lay down beside me for a prayer She cries out in the garden when the kids have gone to bed Cries with that mourning in her head Says ’I wish that I was with you on that cold December night When a bullet caught your chest and changed my life’
7.
I keep on runnin’ and I’m comin’ up to ya You feel the rhythm while I’m ridin’ next to ya You got me shivering like a child now You keep on burning out my heart just like a fire now We got these big wheels turning here all around Like a wild fire burnin’ it to the ground Down the Highway 1 in the California sun alright I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you You got me rollin’ and I’m trying just to break through Well I’m a fool I just don’t wanna fool you You, you wanna feel the bad wind blow Well that’s where, yeah that’s where, that’s where we’re gonna go We got these big wheels turning here all around Like a wild fire burning it to the ground Down the Highway 1 in the California sun alright I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you You You It’s all for you, it’s all for you I’m coming home to you I’m coming home to you I’m coming home to you ’Cause you know I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you I’m coming for you You
8.
I’ve been calling for a friend And I waited down by the line just to hear you coming I’ll see you again ’Cause I know you will have my back When I’m running for you I put some time on the line But I’ve never should, ‘cause I always seen you coming I hope to see you again ’Cause this time I’ll do it right I’m gonna do it my way I’m waiting down on the train back home I’m waiting down on the train back home I’m waiting down on the train back home I’m coming home I loved to see you again But this time I needed more than you could give me, my love Wish you knew all the ends ’Cause this one I’ve got to do without you I’m waiting down on the train back home I’m waiting down on the train back home I’m waiting down on the train back home I’m coming home
9.
I’m coming down from the mountains I’ve been away for years I’m coming down from the mountains To save you from tears I’m coming down from the mountains I ’ve been away for years I’m coming down from the mountains Try to save you from tears I left my heart in the city She’s been rambling around I left my heart in the city Try to see what I can find You been tangled up in bottles And gambled everything we owned I’m growing tired of your lies now So I’ll leave you alone I left my heart in the city Well she’s been rambling around Go on and break another heart girl ‘Cause you ain’t breaking mine Oh, I’m leaving You heard me I’m on my way You won’t see me Come crawling Oh no, oh oh I am gone Oh, I am gone for good I am gone Well I am gone for good You should have treated me better girl Just like I know you could You should have treated me better girl Just like I know you could I heard the rumors that you're leaving Trying to find another town I bet there’s bottles and casinos And men to be found Don’t you go and get your hopes up You’ve been there before Every man that you’ve dealt with Have walked out that door
10.
I’m on my way now Away from Arkansas I’ll be back there any day I just had to get away, from where you are now All those feelings I swear I left behind I can never turn around, you should never cast a doubt Of who you are now Freight train is coming back It’s got me hotter than guns and led What is the meaning of coming home, I’ve got places to roam, yeah I got places to roam (Oh I’ve been waiting) I’ve been waiting for that midnight train (Oh I’ve been waiting) Turn around, and coming back again I’m never waiting on that train to roll back home I’m never waiting on that train to roll back home I’ve been to Moscow I’ve climbed the mountain tops I’ve been living in sin And that’s the way it’s always been Oh come on now

Now I Know 04:10
She comes alive and the moon comes up She knows her moves, and she won’t ever stop Drinking shots like its gasoline We’re both young She wanna go, I wanna go, baby you know it Take it slow, slowly Now I know, that love is all around me Oh, that love is all around me She reads my cards as I fold them up She knows she’s got the upper hand right now I am the joker in her game tonight We’re both young She wanna go, I wanna go, baby you know it Take it slow, slowly Now I know, that love is all around me That love is all around me That love is all around me That love is all around me Hiding from the stars, I know you’re here Lights keep flashing, I know you’re here I see your body moving, I know you’re here As the night goes on, I know you’re here
