Steve Skinner is a trendsetting trailblazer who does things the old fashioned way. He spends time in the desert canyon rivers playing concerts for great blue herons and canyon wrens.

Track Name: One Good Reason
Give me one good reason
Why you should walk away

I'll give you ten better reasons
Why you should stop and say

I know you're feeling tired
And I know that you really don't care

See that circle
See that square
See those dancin'
Shoes over there

Put em on now
Let yourself go

And let if feel good
C'mon let it flow

'Cause it doesn't really matter
And you shouldn't really care

So now you're dancin'
You're makin' a scene
You're havin' fun now
But they're being mean

You'll get no break now
Won't give you a chance
But you keep dancin'
'Cause this is romance

And it doesn't really matter

And you shouldn't really care

See that square
See those dancin'
Fools over there

Don't put 'em down now
Don't let 'em go
'Cause you were dancin'
Not so long ago

And it didn't really matter
And you didn't really care

Just like the seasons
She comes and she goes
And when she's hurting
Everybody knows

Just like the seasons
Changes right in your face
She says she's leavin'
And you laughed in her face

'Cause it doesn't really matter
And you're really not even here
Track Name: Talk, talk, talk
Talk, talk, talk
that's what I heard today

Talk, talk, talk
seems like everyone had
something they wanted to say

I turn my radio on and I
turn around
Everywhere I look
I hear the same old sound

Talk, talk, talk
the kind I heard today

Talk, talk, talk
Makes no sense
The kid's are led astray

I turn my radio on
and I open my mouth
Now it seems like I sound
just like everyone else

Everyone else

Talk, talk, talk
That's what I heard today
Talk, talk, talk
The kid's 'r' led astray

I put my brain in reverse
And I open my mouth
Every single time I do
The same old shit comes out

Everyone else
Track Name: Annalizabeth
Annalizabeth

Dead Bob, I can't think of a thing I'd rather do than to sing one with you now ...
I would lie to sing with you also

Oh I met a little Scottish wench
My lilly's been 'arollin' since
Followed down the cobblestones
And rested her sweet weary bones

I picked a clover just for luck
And floated down the aqueduct
Washed my pits
And then I scrubbed
My private parts and dirty socks

Her name was Annalizabeth
I tend to think the very best
She goes to church
And says the word
And heads straight home to do the work

German gibberish

My heart it breaks
My love it takes
A topsy turn
My loins they burn

We lay in bed
both side by side
And put some logs
upon the fire
A touch of whiskey
And then it's time
To frolic and to
Take what's mine

The fields are filled
With the greenest clover
Your breast i filed
Oh sweet lover
Hold close
And salt the shoulder
And keep it up
'till I get older
Track Name: Tension in the temple
There are no words
Track Name: Fix-it-man
Come to me
With all of your problems
I'm the fix-it-man

I can see through
Whatever ails you
I'm the fix-it-man

So welcome to my junkyard
A place to build your dreams
Just drop it in my junkyard
And I'll tear it apart at the seams

You cut me once
And you cut me twice
I'm the fix-it-man
You put me down
and you're not so nice
I'm the fix-it-man

And now I'm getting older
I can't fix it man
I've always been there for ya'
But not this time man

So welcome to the real word
A place to close the door
Just drop it in my junkyard
And you'll be back for more

So welcome my junkyard
A place to build your mind
Just drop it in my playground
Open eyes will sometime find

Track Name: Annalou
There'll be no laughter
In this house tonight
Only pain and sorrow
Annalou is loose at night

She's knows not of mercy
Compassion's not a trait
Her name is a Annalou
And you are the bait

Anna gonna hurt you
Any way that she can

Annalou will desert you
She don't love any man

Anna Lou isn't human
She's from another ...
World

Annalou
Annalou
Annalou

She has enough for three
But she's still after me
Wants to see me broke
Thinks life is just a joke

Annalou and Glenda
won't tell me the truth
They want to hurt you
So you better move away from Chooch

Annalou
Annalou
Annalou
Annalou
Annalou
Annalou
Annalou
Annalou
Annalou

Ahhhhhhna-loo
Ahhhhhhna-loo
Ahhhhhhna-loo
Track Name: You Again
I saw you again last night
This time in a dream

Everyone was staring
You were so beautiful

Maybe 'cause you're untouchable
But it's much more than that

You've told me those things
Stories from your past

Your eyes told me
About another scene

With you in the center
Hearing all those screams

Admiration leads to separation
For you

Nothing has changed

I step onstage
Your head becomes deranged

Kicking and biting
You fight for the right
To hold and possess
Everything in sight

Your eyes are lucid
You're and earthbound cupid

Stab me with your arrow
I don't care if I live

Save me from tomorrow
And the pain
That sunlight gives

Stop, stop
Stop, stop

Show me show me
Help me help me help me
Take me take me take me
Away with you

I'm in love with you
I know it's deadly
But it's only a dream
In the morning
You'll be gone

Don't wake up
I don't want to
Don't wake up
I don't want the world
Don't wake up
'cause I'm so strong
Don't wake up
Cause you're my girl
Track Name: Let's Run Away
Let's run away

Let's run away
'cause our love is wild
Let's run away
if we don't I'll die

This place is crazy
Opened up my eyes
This place is crazy
Tell me you see it, too

There's a perfect girl
Standing in the booth
She's a wholesome thing
Speaks nothing but the truth

"Here's your receipt
Have a nice day sir"
She's sickeningly sweet
She's the perfect girl

I want to hold
and spin you around
Don't say a word, girl
Don't make a sound
This moment is perfect
Let's lose control
Want to do bad things
Want to bury my soul

And if it ain't perfect
Then it's right for me
That's why I love you
Come closer to me
Let's run away
'cause our love is wild
Let's run away
If we don't I'll die

I want to hold
and spin you around
Don't say a word, girl
Don't make a sound
This moment is perfect
Let's lose control
Wanna do good things
Better save our souls

Let's run away
