Trapped on the Wheel 02/15/08 - NMB I’m up in the day And I sleep through the night I eat on the go And I work through the heights Of the hours that separate Night from the day I’ve never seen noon Or the games people play But my boss always knows If I’m late for the show If I’m talking to fast Or I’m working to slow... Oh there’s never an end To this cycle I’m in Cause I’m trapped on the wheel From beginning to end And how many times Have I punched in my card Or been punched out for taking Things way way too far You’d think I’d have learned From mistakes I have made But somehow I forget them The very next day And my girlfriend will kill me If I ever stray But my boyfriend don’t care Cause he knows that I’m gay.... Oh there’s never an end To this cycle I’m in Cause I’m trapped on the wheel From beginning to end And my friends warm me Heroin will kill my brain Then they tell me oxycontin Will help keep me sane But it doesn’t mix well With the speed or dalmane That I shoot up and snort With the crack I obtain From the people who sell me Drugs out on the street Where you’re only as good as The money you bleed.... Oh there’s never an end To this cycle I’m in Cause I’m trapped on the wheel From beginning to end And maybe one day I’ll get hold of my brain And decide if I want to Be sane or insane But until then I will Continue to complain About things that I cannot Control or explain Cause there’s nothing to lose If you don’t take a chance And there’s nothing to gain If you don’t dance their dance.... Oh there’s never an end To this cycle I’m in Cause I’m trapped on the wheel From beginning to end Oh there’s never an end To this cycle I’m in Cause I’m trapped on the wheel The wheel Again chords: 46.57 - 46.57.67 (2x) 45.54.65 - 45.54 (2x) 46.57 - 46.57.67 (2x) 49.57.68 - 21.32.62 32.44.54 - 47.56.67 (punch 18.28) end: 37.46.57 (E) copyright 2008 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

The Ballad Of Little Johnny (for Paul Michael Zisholtz) 03/28/14 - FtLd Little Johnny never Was much of a man Seems things he wanted Never much wanted him So he ended up on the side Like so many of his friends Little Johnny lived On the corner 4th and main In a three story walk up With no running water only rain That dripped in through the ceiling Into a pan And all the little monsters Run away in the day Yeah all the little monsters Run away Big Fred said Little Johnny Don’t you ever wanna score Make something of yourself Yeah make something more Than this dead life That you’re living in Little Johnny winked So he and Big Fred Walked down to banker’s row Then up old cobbler’s lane To a door with no handle just a lock But Big Fred got in And there was more gold Silver, jewelry Than anyone could ever want Or really ever need And they were stuffing it in bags Just stuffing it in And all the little monsters.... And everything was cool Yeah everything was right When suddenly a siren Pierced through the night That’s when Big Fred smashed Little Johnny in the chin He said someone’s gonna win And someone’s gonna lose And someone’s gotta give And someone’s gotta choose Then he took the loot And locked Little Johnny in And all the little monsters.... But Little Johnny had A 22 in his coat And when he finally took it out He was just about To shoot a hole in that door When the police came in the other way And Little Johnny turned To face them like a man But he still had That 22 in his hand And that was the last mistake He ever made And all the little monsters.... (2x) verse: 39.49.57 - 49.57.68 47.56.67 - 45.54.65 chorus: 33.42.53 - 32.41.52 - Em - 35.45.53 33.42.53 - 32.41.52 - Em - 28.49.57 end: 49.57.68 - 47.56.67 28.49.57 - 45.54.65 49.57.68 - 47.56.67 - 28.49.57 (rolling pick) copyright 2014 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

It’s a Fucked-up World of Recognition 1/27/15 - NMB It’s a fucked-up world of recognition And no one can tell you for sure If you look too hard for answers I’m sure you will find them absurd And the bus driver tells you go fuck yourself Cause Clemens Street lies beyond Main And if you want someone to talk to There’s no one here but the insane The people scurry round just like spiders As the meter maids go out on strike And the bullets that fly all around you Are just the sound track to your life So tell me no lies and I’ll tell you no truths For reality lies far from here Just take off your shoes and try to walk home Or better yet pay the bus fare And the man behind the counter don’t work there And your shopping cart won’t turn that way And if you think everything’s as it should be Then perhaps the straight people are gay So when your school has a reunion Ten years after you ran away Don’t ask if the sailors come back from the sea Cause you know they just want to escape And the poor scare you more than the wealthy Even though they have nothing to say For all that separates you from them Is two pay checks and one or two days Sunami Sunami just like oragami Faluja Paluja and more Don’t expect anything here to make sense It’s all been here before So if you are left in confusion Tom Waits will right you for sure The hometown was never anyone’s home You can’t go back where you never were And it’s a fucked-up world of recognition It’s a fucked-up world of recognition It’s a fucked-up world of recognition God’s creation the human condition God’s creation the human God’s creation God chords: 52 - Am7 52 - Ef1 52 - Am7 52 - Ef1 E+32 - 53.63 copyright 2015 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.

Stay With Me Now 06/05/11 - FtLd Breeze in the summertime Whispers memories I’ve left behind Of you And me I’ve gone on these many years Had a life Shed some tears And laughed time Away But when the sky turns blue And the sun shines bright I still think of you Where are you Now Where are you Now So turn on your radio To that station we listened to Long ago And love Was Free Close your eyes Hold your breath I’ll be there Holding your hand Again I’ll be there Holding your hand Again Time is a memory And that is how You will Stay Stay Stay with me now Stay with me now intro: E7+23 - 23.41.52 verse: E7+23 - 25.36.46 Ef2 (F) - A7+31 32.41.52 - E7+23 bridge: 28.36.47 - 47.56.67 - E7+23 ending: (from) A7+31 - Am7 32.41.52 - E7+23 bridge - intro copyright 2014 Robert Ben Mitchell, all rights reserved.
