Track Name: Bridgeburner
I played the dirty dive bars, I sang to empty rooms
Thinking better times are coming, well I hope they get here soon

Rode the highs and lows as I sit and write this tune
I'm leaving no stone unturned except the one that marks my tomb

With a guitar on my shoulder & a bottle in my hand
I'm spitting broken glass and razor blades back in the face of the Man

Burned a lot of bridges
Money's all been spent
Everything I'm holding on to somebody must have leant

(M. Wohl)
Track Name: Chinatown
I met her down at the dock around dawn
I didn't know what boat she'd be on
but those emerald eyes of hers shone like the sun
I lost her down in Chinatown

He lived a live of incense and oils
Mah-jong and dominoes and serpentine coils
of wires & veins buried deep in the soil
He hung around in Chinatown

You'll see it coming like a wandering cloud
Lunar temples & calendars alone in a crowd
Lost in an alley like a funeral shroud
the wind blew you in to Chinatown

You're a night-time searcher running away from the stare
of a withering woman whose eyes stripped you bare
Wherever you go, you will always be there
You're lost at night in Chinatown

(M. Wohl)
