Bear Hands Vile Iowa

Oh the new sensation in vile Iowa

Miles of inside of the kid, oh I am drivin’ get in

As we roll in the dark, oh the sun has hit

On the land of the hawk

Oh it spreads through the water it

Spreads through the line now

Leave it up to luck, baby either way I’m fine

Take a sip from my cup if you don’t wanna die

In the mid-western sun, you’re a star in my eyes

You’re a star in my eyes [x4]

(You’re a star in my eyes)

Oh I’ve seen your movie and you’re an extra

Looking sexy but hardly mention-able

I’ve seen your pictures the mounted black and white

Drugs and art in the same old fight

Oh it spreads through the water it

Spreads through the line now

Leave it up to luck, baby either way I’m fine

Take a sip from my cup if you don’t wanna die

In the mid-western sun, you’re a star in my eyes

You’re a star in my eyes [x4]

Oh the new sensation in vile Iowa

Miles of inside of the kid, oh I am drivin’ get in

As we roll in the dark, oh the sun has hit

On the land of the hawk

Bear Hands Back Seat Driver

Aw baby, switched at birth

The money ring around

So let’s run away

Never to be found

A couple overdosin’

A case of rolling rock

Just got personal

Don’t call the cops

Spirit guide

Back seat driver

Colliding collapse the crash kills

‘Bout time that you took the wheel

Bear Hands Long Lean Queen

Buy the gap buy the right mirror sign

I’m used to living on the other side

Buy the gap buy the right mirror sign

I’m used to living on the other side

Like peace in the middle east

It’s one week perpetually out of reach

Slowly slicing up a little lie

Straight face I look just like a standup guy

Sweet face and a dapper taste

Some wasted junkie gonna stuff his face

Long and lean God save the queen

Peace in the world is peace in my brain

Just say the word saintly and kind

I’m gonna get high one bag at a time

Long and lean God save the queen

Peace in the world is peace in my brain

Just say the word saintly and kind

I’m gonna get high one bag at a time

Buy the gap buy the right mirror sign

I’m used to living on the other side

Like peace in the middle east

It’s one week perpetually out of reach

Slowly slicing up a little lie

Straight face I look just like a standup guy

Sweet face and a dapper taste

Some wasted junkie gonna stuff his face

Long and lean God save the queen

Peace in the world is peace in my brain

Just say the word saintly and kind

I’m gonna get high one bag at a time

Long and lean God save the queen

Peace in the world is peace in my brain

Just say the word saintly and kind

I’m gonna get high one bag at a time

Long and lean God save the queen

Peace in the world is peace in my brain

Just say the word saintly and kind

I’m gonna get high one bag at a time

Bear Hands Crime Pays

Everyone knows that crime pays

And everybody does it

Everyone knows that crime pays

And everybody loves it

Oh the street’s looking hard

Got a fresh credit card

I believe in the power

Of people with resolve

It took six months of trials

Just to put me in jail

In seven long years

They never offered bail

Everyone knows that crime pays

And everybody does it

Everyone knows that crime pays

And everybody loves it

Everybody loves it

Just cause and a search

To find the shovel and the dirt

I’m just sticking to my work

I’m just sticking to my work

I found the files on the run

Up to denial

Lassie running to the well

At the sound of a bell now

Everyone knows that crimes pays

And everybody does it

Everyone knows that crime pays

And everybody loves it

Everybody loves it

Everyone knows that crime pays

And everybody does it

Everyone know that crime pays

And everybody loves it

Everybody loves it

Bear Hands Bone Digger

Ashamed to be a Bonedigger, a Soul Sister, a born winner.

And maybe we are two sinners who go bigger but burn quicker.

The lies, the lies, the bullshit and the lies.

Like “Oh, I could’ve died!” Yeah, lucky to be alive.

I want truth and reason, clean and decent.

I want new school teachings, deeper meanings.

I thought I’d be a Bonedigger, a stone figure, a quick trigger.

But now I see a life richer, a nice picture. The lights flicker.

The lies, the lies, the bullshit and the lies.

Like “Oh, I could’ve died!” Lucky to be alive!

I want truth and reason, clean and decent.

I want new school teachings, ancient secrets and

Past lives. On television, on television. What competition is it?

Past lives. On television, on television. What competition is it?

Watching my past lives. Flipping through noble burials now.

Thinking ’bout cash buy. Thinking on old imperial grounds.

Now I need a Bonedigger to go deeper and sell cheaper.

The bottoms steep but not evil. The real people who live simple.

The lies, the lies, the bullshit and the lies.

Like “Oh, I could’ve died!” Yeah, lucky to be alive.

I want truth and reason, clean and decent.

I want new school teachings, ancient secrets and

Past lives. On television, on television. What competition is it?

Past lives. On television, on television. What competition is it?

Watching my past lives. Flipping through noble burials now.

Thinking ’bout cash buy. Thinking on old imperial grounds.

Bear Hands Camel Convention

Well the truth isn’t part of a general direction

Or proof of the father or any other message come on

If anything I have grown ever more the cynic

Convinced I’m alone in a world of petty shit

Now come on in

Come on in

The giving and the cheap

Oh come on in

The shallow and the deep

Oh come on in

The world at seventeen

Oh come on in

I’ve saved you a good seat

Celebrate yeah

Do the soft shoe

Celebrate yeah

I can’t stop you

Celebrate yeah

Do the soft shoe

Celebrate yeah

I can’t stop you

I come in on a rake

I’m leaving on the early train

I come in on a rake

And it’s out with the morning face is out

I come in on a rake

I’m leaving on the early train

I come in on a rake

And it’s out with the morning face is out

Out with the morning face is out [x7]

Out with the morning face

Bear Hands Purpose Filled Life

Not gonna let my mother down

Not gonne let my brother down

I’m gonna earn my place at the table

Not gonne let my sister down

Not gonna let my father down

I’m gonna make my peace where I’m able

Ooo don’t let me be no kind of burden

Just let me work and I will earn it

I want my life to have a purpose

Tell me if you think I deserve it

Not til I get to solid ground

Not til I get a bottom out

Will I see myself in the mirror

Not til my body is broken down

Not til my soul is in the clouds

Will I finally be somewhere peaceful

Don’t let me be some kind of burden

Just let me work and I will earn it

I want my life to have a purpose

Tell me if you think I deserve it

Don’t let me be some kind of burden

Just let me work and I will earn it

Tell me if you think I deserve it

Bear Hands Peacekeeper

You won’t find any finger prints on the gun, on the gun

Damn right I’m the one who did it

I’m the one, I’m the one

And if you wanted to find a witness, well the whole city is complicit

And they won’t for a second miss it on the run, on the run

On the run

You won’t find any finger prints on the gun, on the gun

Damn right I’m the one who did it

I’m the one, I’m the one

And if you wanted to find a witness, well the whole city is complicit

And they won’t for a second miss it on the run, on the run

On the run

I want the scholars to see me as I see myself

I want the world to agree not to single me out

I hear the message of peace get betrayed by my mouth

I try to settle the beef but it’s too late now

Slip by you in the breeze, then I’m free, I am free

Nobody gonna touch me, I’m too clean, I’m too clean

And you thought that I’mma listen to the words of my victims

After all that I did to them, no way, no need, no reason

I want the scholars to see me as I see myself

I want the world to agree not to single me out

I hear the message of peace get betrayed by my mouth

I try to settle the beef but I don’t know how

Slowly turn down the world of truth

Not too sure of nothing else

All the world is tired to have been around

Cut the chord or bottom out

Cut the chord or bottom out

Cut the chord or bottom out

Bear Hands The Shallows

Come sit against the sword

Come black with sin

Come reach and pour

I’ll let you in

Come defend em

Come learn to live

You’ll see a change

I’ll promise it

Down at the waters edge

Swimming in the shallows

We’re all friends here

And that’s what matters

That’s what matters

Come young and old

Come sunk with shame

Come back, come home

Don’t ever leave

Down at the water’s edge

Swimming in the shallows

We’re all friends here

And that’s what matters

That’s what matters

Come sick and sleep

Come black with sin

Come reach and pour

I’ll let you in

Down at the water’s edge

Swimming in the shallows

We’re all friends here

And that’s what matters

That’s what matters

Bear Hands Belongings

At the gentle age of nine, I bought my first forty-five

Oh I drink and I drink and I’m sticking to a flea

Oh I drink oh I drink and I smoke a little weed

No never say no to no fire skag

No never say no to the love in hand

Pocket full of cigarettes, pocket full of tea

Yeah momma always mad but she never mad at me

Schlep it to the sidewalk, sell a few things

I’m a joke when I’m bored I’m a hole I’m a leak

No never say no to no fire skag

No never say no to the love in hand

Oh Satan build a wall, dividing up the room

And I hope it falls, trouble at the tomb

Oh Satan build a wall, dividing up the room

And I hope it falls, trouble at the tomb

The half debt the razor said, the carpet is soaking in

I saw raw iron before you came, I kept myself from old south main

No never say no to no fire skag

No never say no to the love in hand

Oh Satan build a wall, dividing up the room

And I hope it falls, trouble at the tomb

Oh Satan build a wall, dividing up the room

And I hope it falls, trouble at the tomb

Oh I cross him off, cross him off, cross him off [x3]

At the gentle age of nine, I bought my first forty-five

Oh I drink and I drink and I’m drinking in the trees

Oh I drink oh I drink I’ve been drinking for a week
