Track Name: I Never Thought I'd Live This Way
I never thought I’d live this way
I lost my home when I lost my pay
Now I live on the other side
Loneliness gonna be my bride
I hear her voice everywhere
In the shadows and everywhere
I asked the devil to save my soul
He came back and he said 'no'

I never thought I'd live this way
I never thought I'd live this way
Whoa

I never thought I'd live this way
My life's become one big cliche
I steal my beer at the local market
"Paper or plastic?", "Nah, don't wrap it"
I never thought I'd live this way
I curse the night and I sleep all day
I've got a gun but I'd never use it
Unless some fool decides to lose it

I never thought I'd live this way
I never thought I'd live this way
Whoa
Track Name: My Black Mama (Son House)
My black mama what's the matter with you?
If it ain't satisfactory don't care what I do (2x)

A brown skin woman makes a rabbit run to town
But a jet black woman make a mule kick a stable down (2x)

Ain't no heaven ain't no burning hell
Where I go when I die ain't nobody can tell (2x)

My black mama's face shine like the sun
Lipstick and powder don't help her none (2x)

Going down to the racetrack see my pony run
He ain't the best in the world but he's a running son of a gun (2x)
Track Name: Nature Of The Beast
We hustled out of Africa
Headed up to Spain
Made it with some natives there
Man, we’ve never be the same
Then we had to go
So we went back East
Couldn’t stand the weather
But at least we found some peace

Moving on
That’s the nature of the beast
We’re moving on

It got a little crowded
So we carried on
To a South Pacific Island
We looked sharp in our sarongs
We’ve been all over
Never settled down
Never felt quite satisfied
We like to get around

Moving on
That’s the nature of the beast
We’re moving on

We sailed across from England
‘Cause we wanted to be free
Four centuries later
We’ve got flat screen TVs
And complicated sex lives
And cheap designer clothes
And purple Slurpees
From stores that never close

Moving on
That’s the nature of the beast
We’re moving on

Standing in a parking lot
On a California night
Looking up at the stars
Something don’t feel right
They ain’t shining brightly
Like they used to do
I’m gonna buy a rocket ship
And get an up close personal view

Moving on
That’s the nature of the beast
I'm moving on

Moving on
That's the nature of the beast
We're moving on
