Track Name: Ever Since The Grid Went Down live at GOE
EVER SINCE THE GRID WENT DOWN
 
I went back to smoking Marlboro Reds
Now no one worries about getting dead
I sleep when I’m tired and I eat when I can
I’m finally living like an honest man
Like and honest man
 
Out in my back yard I set up my TV
I painted it with symbols like it was 800 BC
Got down on my knees and prayed to this God
Got up on my roof and covered it with sod
Covered it with sod
 
    Ever since the grid went down
    I’m through acting like a clown
    I sleep when the sun goes down
    Ever since the grid went
    Ever since the grid went down
 
I killed a man for batteries
I killed a man for gas
I almost killed a soldier for talking too fast
Talking to fast
 
I use my Telecaster to paddle my boat
My G5 tower’s a milking stool
For milking my goat
I go fishing in the reservoir and forage in the dump
I charge admission to my Andy Gump
To my Andy Gump
 
    CHORUS
 
        I caught my neighbor tapping into my well       
Loaded up my sling shot and sent him to hell
        Now his wife is my wife and his whiskey too
        His three little children are sewing my shoes
        I gotta hit the mountains for some winter meat
        Feed my brand new family a tasty treat
        Oh it may sound wicked but the logic is sound
        Ever since the grid went, Ever since the grid went
        Ever since the grid went, Ever since the grid went

Down
Track Name: Live And Never Learn
Live and never learn
Live and never learn
Find another bridge to burn

Good intentions are well and good
But they won't get you out of the neighborhood
They won't feed you or let you stay the night
They'll lead you straight into a fight

Live and never learn
Oh, live and never learn

It was a Saturday night, I knew it would never last
Once again I took the curve a too fast
Once again I'm up on two wheels
Don't I know just how that feels

Live and never learn
Oh, live and never learn
Find another bridge to burn
Live and never learn

In this bar that is my life
I scratch the table with a broken knife
Every sentence, every slight
Every way I treated her unkind
Every promise I knew I'd break
Every friend looks the other way
Every leap I ever took
Halfway down let's take a look


Live and never learn
Oh, live and never learn
Find another bridge to burn
Live and never learn
