Track Name: Howling Wind
howlin’ wind
howlin’ wind
blow, blows through my skin
you battered me, and left me cold
howling wind blows through my soul

like a freight train rolling through the hills
like a crashed wave on my windowsills
the shadows shake, the water spills
for you, howling wind

howlin’ wind
howlin’ wind
blow blows through my skin
you battered me and left me cold
howling wind blows through my soul

you breathe life to fire, you lift the eagle higher
star of a wind chime’s dance, and the source of the ocean’s trance
when i need to speak my sins
i seek you, howling wind

howlin’ wind
howlin’ wind
send chills up my back again
you blow, blow through my skin
take me, howling wind

you’re the only one who lifts me
lifts me... lifts me...

howlin’ wind
howlin’ wind
blow blows through my skin
you battered me and left me cold
howling wind blows through my soul

howlin’ wind
howlin’ wind
send chills up my back again
you blow, blow through my skin
take me, howling wind
Track Name: Teenage Hustler
she goes to work after school
she never learned the golden rule
cause hearts to drop like a violent rain
and the boys will never get them back again

flinty stare like two thunderclouds
have a man crying out loud
she hits like a boom in the room and then it's too late
you thought it was a date, but it looks like your tomb

a heartbreaker, but lord you take her
for fifty dollars, she'll make you holler
cryin for your mama and a baby bottle
don't let her take ya, oh she'll break ya
she's unstable and they don't trust her
but they've never been able to bust her
she's a high-paid teenage hustler

she's alone and not close with her mom
who stays drunk all the time on red pills and white wine
her daddy left when she was only three
he told her, "baby girl, i love you but i gotta be free."

another soul lost in another small town
choking on the dust of dead fields and creeping rust
that cling to cars that long ago sat still
she wants to get away but knows she probably never will

a heartbreaker, but lord you take her
for twenty dollars, she'll make you holler
cryin for your mama and a baby bottle
don't let her take ya, oh she'll break ya
she's unstable and they don't trust her
but they've never been able to bust her
she's a high-paid teenage hustler

online all the time
her profile she's just turned nineteen
she'll striptease, do as you please
and might show you everything... everything

she don't do drugs doesn't even drink
only has sex for money, honey don't you even think
she doesn't have you wrapped around her finger all dressed in pink
about to take you to the cleaners before you even blink

a heartbreaker, but lord you take her
for fifty dollars, she'll make you holler
cryin for your mama and a baby bottle
don't let her take ya, oh she'll break ya
she's unstable and they don't trust her
but they've never been able to bust her
she's a high-paid teenage hustler
Track Name: Where I'm Going
where i’m going is where i am
i ain’t seeking no promised land
when i die please let me stand
among the ashes of my fellow man
where i’m going is where i am

no religion or politician
can move me from my only mission
to write a good song means more than wishing
and i’m gonna do the best i can
where i’m going is where i am

big breaks can wait
on my window sill
next to the golden tomorrows
and the better yet stills
you see, where i’m going is where i am

where i’m going is where i am
i ain’t seeking no promised land
when i die please let me stand
among the ashes of my fellow man
where i’m going is where i am

well i had lovers and i had friends
but all past lives must come to an end
you see, where i’m going is where i am

where i’m going is where i am.
