In a Haze 02:52
One day the good lord, gonna take you home Just to see me a champion, gonna break you out of this dark place With your silly little ways and I’ll teach you to bend but not break You may see me as a mistake But you will come home in a haze of love and hate I know there’s times you want to bring me the old ways of champions You want to send me a dark slate so you can learn that I can save And we can walk on water for today You may see me as a mistake But you will come home in a haze of love and hate One day the good lord, gonna send you home Just to find me a champion, gonna break you out of this dark place So you can learn that I can save and I’ll teach you to bend but not break And you can see me as a mistake But you will come home in a haze of love and hate You will come home in a haze of love and hate You will come home in a haze of love and hate

Sidewinder 03:24
Hey sidewinder got you figured out I'm not getting in your way I just remembered who's the boss of this one's talking And how to have my say My father raised a gentleman it won't do to get arrested Always playing for your pistol you're bound to get light-headed I found that hardest habit, here's your living proof I am not getting any younger Indiscretions lessons and you know that it's the truth, Oh listen to me, hey sidewinder Hey hey sidewinder, I know you didn't know Hey sidewinder I don't know about all of that trash that you've been saying Out to impress them you just got to run that mouth, you ain't been taught the rules for playing Hey hey sidewinder, I know you didn't know you didn't know, didn't you know

Lets break all of these tired worn-out rules I’m not bound to my past, I’m not held by this room I couldn’t use it, this kind of simple security Its much too loose-knit to be worn faithfully I’ll not play with, all your silly little toys It seems telling to put forth that I just don’t have a choice I could choose to wrestle with my eternity Like we used to before socrates Well break it down for me Help me fight past this urge for sanity In the end I may secede That what’s best for you is not what's best for me So lets agree to disagree If I’m to take part in all your fool proof arguing I might point out that you add and subtract quite on the whim Well it seems useless, spelt a J or with an I to add subtext, but no utility Well break it down for me Help me fight past this urge for sanity In the end I may secede That what’s best for you is not what's best for me Seems this test has proven that its time to leave So lets agree to disagree

Dead Cats 05:04
Dead cats in the elevator, sixteenth flat, I told you I loved you, but I'm taking it back We've been through this before, but I should have known better A pretty face, two long necks keeping it clean, I'm holding my breath for the american dream She gets what she want, but you know I've got it easy I cut smoke on the black top, heating the slicks, I've got a custom tooled suspension low to handle the drift She needed to unwind when he cracked that carburetor Girl you know you get around, I know you didn't need that kind of pressure Little girl these words you're wearing out, I ain't wrong, but we know it don't matter I ain't wrong, but we both know it don't matter Its that look on your face with his lips on your neck, makes the music hard of hearing, but its what you'd expect She needed to unwind, but baby got off easy Girl you know you get around, I know you didn't need that kind of pressure Little girl these words you're wearing out, I ain't wrong, but we know it don't matter I ain't wrong, but we both know it don't make any difference what I say Dead cats in the elevator, sixteen stones, this aint getting better, I just want to go home I came for the ride, but I should have known better She fooled me once or twice, but I should have known better She told me a bunch of lies, but I should have known better

They came with their boots on and faces painted red Well if its war they want, then war they will get With just an eye of you, developing tunnel view They proved they would die for you Did you see me, with your gun Trying to defend you Locked towers safe from harm Baby I'll protect you Oh oh what am i to do Oh oh what is this ive done Don't let their waving banners, lock your pretty eyes Its always the first they take and if I'm not mistaken Its really me your saving Did you see me, with your gun Trying to defend you Locked towers safe from harm Baby I'll protect you Oh oh what am i to do Oh oh what is this ive done They're shouting cat calls and you're screaming lies Baby this ones for you I've loaded enough for two And I fucking love you baby Did you see me, with your gun Trying to defend you Locked towers safe from harm Baby I'll protect you Oh oh what am i to do Oh oh what is this ive done Did you see me What am i to do What is this ive done Baby I'll perfect you

Been a little while since you came around As I recall, we tore up the streets of this town But we all know how no one knows you when you're down Who could be to blame, anyone would do the same How about you I guess I'm really asking, do you ever recognize My old familiar glimmer in another set of eyes And do they drown your battles in another set of lies Who could be to blame, anyone could do the same How about you Now and then I'll admit I get caught in a day dream Don't we all feel the seasons turn Tell myself over and over I'm waiting Waiting for when will I learn Been a little while since you came around As i recall you wore out the sheets in this town We all know you get so lonely when you're down Who could be to blame, anyone could do the same How about you How about you

Small Time Napoleon Louisville, Kentucky

Small Time Napoleon has been described as “a mad science blend of western swing, hot jazz, and folk” by Insider Louisville’s Kyle Ware. Their live shows are intimate and natural while remaining energetic. Their combination of swing-era influence with modern inclinations has driven them to a sound and style that is both new and old and wholly their own. ... more
