about

This album was originally recorded in 2001 at Big Johns Studio, Chapel Hill, NC and also at Kudzu Ranch Recorders, Mebane, NC. Some the songs would eventually be released on the 2003 Jennyanykind release, Peas and Collards. This is a release of the songs in the artist's original concept, which is a simple loose time line that chronicles time and impressions from day to night. The songs have been remastered.

Track Name: Wave Song
how do you rate success?
what defines your makeup?
how do you deal with the mess in the morning
when you wake up?
why are you filled with greed?
who's got a mind to spread that disease?
who would feel the need?

and have you felt duress when you don't even know
what prevents you from crying?
you say you must be blessed
but i see through you, i know you're lying.
aren't you a hawk and a dove?...saying "who needs
god above?"
but you're only a victim of love.

listen to my wave song.
listen to my wave.
listen to my wave song.
listen to my wave.

where is god above?
who needs a shoulder to cry on?...search
for the meaning of love.
and where is there left to run on those lonely nights
where there's no denying...
...the end of the law has come?
the end of the law has come.
the end of the law has come.
the end of the law has come.
the end of the law has come.
the end of the law has come.
the end of the law has come.
the end of the law has come.
listen to my wave song.
listen to my wave.
listen to my wave song.
listen to my wave.
Track Name: The Promised Land
on a roadside table in a field of dreams
where you don't have to speak well
you just got to believe
you hear devil music, you see angels
and how it turns out you can never tell

leave my life, hear the call
leave my boots by the roadside ya'll
leave me naked, make my bed
fill my momma's hear with dread

sometimes life is a lie
other times it can't be believed
and though I never met you at all
I feel I know you completely

the promised land
the promised land
we're gonna make it to the promised land
the promised land
the promised land
where will you make your stand?


sometimes life is a lie
other times it can't be believed
I wanna take you up in my arms
until I know you completely

the promised land
the promised land
we're gonna make it to the promised land
the promised land
the promised land
we're gonna make it to the promised land
the promised land
the promised land
we're gonna make it to the promised land
we're gonna make it to the promised land
Track Name: Don't Bother Me Devil
gonna make it hard for you devil
gonna make you work for me
I may stay out all night
suffocate in smoke and drink
but tomorrow I'll be fast asleep

gonna make it hard for you devil
gonna male you work for me
I will do what I want
no matter what the others think
because I believe in you
oh, little girl, I believe in you
