Wave Song 03:32
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.

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

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.
