BENJAMINTO Ugh, it's so nice to be able to listen to recorded versions of these songs. So many favorite goodfunjamboreejams to choose from (along with songs like "Lady Loo" that didn't stick in my brain after hearing them live, but stand out on the album lyrically).

Some real good Misses Bitches songs aren't represented here, so I expect there's another studio release in the future to look forward to~ Favorite track: Lady Loo.

Track Name: Daggermouth
Had to throw me 'gainst the wall,
knock some sense into my skull,
they're gonna eat you with desire,
she tried to warn me that night,
well, I'm on my way to fire,
I don't go down without a fight,

Oh my fire, came out
Like Daggers from my mouth,
I am blatant and too proud
I can't lay my burden, lay my burden down

It's a big ol' world,
gonna see you pretty girl,
go on dig up all the dirt,
go on tell em all the shame,
do you see them turn their backs
no they forgive you just the same

Oh my fire, came out
Like Daggers from my mouth,
I am blatant and too proud
I can't lay my burden, lay my burden down

You know my heart,
Has been hiding in the dark,
oh i think i'll let it fly
from this harrowing crusade,
Oh why have I been blind,
my burden is my slave.

Oh my fire, came out
Like Daggers from my mouth,
I am blatant and too proud
I can't lay my burden, lay my burden down
Track Name: Heartbreak Shoes
Oh it's been, so long,
since I've been, this far gone,
and i know that i hurt you so,
ain't goin back, to those days no more
Baby that's for sure,
cause your sorrow, was fillin' both our shoes with the blues.

Should have know, I couldn't go through,
the kind of love, that I had for you,
It pulled me low, and it hurt me so,
Ain't goin' back to them days no more,
baby that's for sure,
cause your sorrow, was fillin' both our shoes with the blues

Didn't know, you'd throw me down,
son of a gun, went and ran around,
my Friday beau, by Sunday nooooo
you dropped our love, straight on the floor,
couldn't take no more,
baby that's for sure,
cause your sorrow was fillin' both out shoes with the blues

I'm your failure s'what you said to me

I feel betrayed, a little used,
dynamite on one short fuse,
get me a gun, and a case of booze,
i'm drowning out, these heartbreak blues
cause your sorrow's been fillin' both our shoes with the blues
with the blues,
with the blues.
Track Name: Sunkiss
The sun kisses each of my cheeks
bringer of life and warmth and love
The breeze whispers my name
calling me to join in on the dance
give life a chance
The leaves whisper a magic song

I watch as the sun climbs a hill
and the breeze rushes to catch up
rushes to catch up
rushes to catch up

So much peace in this moment
the hustling rustling leaves sing me a lullaby
sing me a lullaby

And yet I know that this moment to shall pass
pass by and by, by and by
sometimes you just shouldn't
stop to ask questions or why

Time is running out
and life has only just begun
Oh time is running out
and life has only just begun
has only just begun
Track Name: Lady Loo
Oh my whole day stopped,
You came in my drive.
Pissed off and hot, at the whole damn world,
And I tried, oh I tried, to let you in.
And you replied, you replied,
My Lady Loo, My Lady Loo,
We're just friends.

So you drank like a fish, unaware that you might drown,
Just to push it all away, but it always fueled the flame.
And I tried, Oh I tried, to let you in.
And you replied, you replied,
My Lady Loo, My Lady Loo,
We're just friends.

So I grabbed you up,
Gave you a bed in my arms,
And we moved like the wind,
Ran away from harm,
But you sank down so low,
You couldn't see the sky,
And I'm way up here,
With my heart open wide.

It's been ten years, or so,
Since I spoke the truth so loud,
And the only part that's true,
Is that I'm too damn proud.
Cause I tried, and you tried,
And that's when
We had to decide,
We're just friends.

So I grabbed you up,
Gave you a bed in my arms,
And we moved like the wind,
Ran away from harm,
But you sank down so low,
You couldn't see the sky,
And I'm way up here,
With my heart open wide.

My whole day stopped,
You came in my drive.
Track Name: Traveling Song
Well there are many a song about traveling high
across strong currents in rivers where you thought you might die
across mountains and hilltops, deserts, forests and streams
and when you get home it all just seems like a dream

Just take a look in the mirror and find find truth in your eyes
now close them real tight your in for a big surprise
for you can take a journey just within your own mind
just unlock the door you don't know what you could find

Oh well times are a changin and life's movin fast
don't hold on to the future and let go of your past
cause we are movin we are movin we are movin at last
yes we are movin from the third to the fifth dimension at last

we are movin we are movin we are movin at last
oh we are movin we are movin we are movin at last
oh we are movin we are movin we are movin at last
we are movin from the third to the fifth dimension at last
