Sideburn Slim with manic grin Inside his beady eyes He took a swing, said it's a sin A doggone dirty crime Mudhole John on his front lawn Can do his greasy slide He waits alone until the dawn And goes out with the tide Bright lights, big city Drives me out of my mind A mean old town don't need me around Its plastic neon signs Hambone Bo went down the road Said won't be back no more My motor's hummin', I'll leave here runnin' Cuz walkin's most too slow Bright lights, big city Drives me out of my mind A mean old town don't need me around Its plastic neon signs Bright lights, big city Drives me out of my mind I'm goin' back where I belong & leave it all behind

I’m an airplane, baby Soarin’ high in the skies I’m an airplane, baby Soarin’ high in the skies Well the skies seem bright & yellow With all these blues hard on my mind I’m a spaceship, darlin’ Across the universe I ride I’m a spaceship, darlin’ Across the universe I ride With this vacuum in my soul The space seems oddly occupied I’m a freight train, honey Rollin’ on into the night I’m a freight train, honey Rollin’ on into the night I’m lost inside a tunnel And you’re my only guiding light I’m a steamship, woman And my river runs to you I’m a steamship, woman And my river runs to you I got all my engines runnin’ Lord, I’m comin’ home to you

Lightnin’ on horizon No thunder, not a sound Silent night surrounds us Within a chaos storms Lightnin’ on horizon My mind is on a chase Spiritual liaison Draws lines across my face Lightnin’ on horizon The sky is burnin’ up My mind is runnin’ silent I’m tickin’ like a clock Give me a new morning Let the sun come up again Give me a new morning Lighten up around the bend Give me a new morning 'fore the day is too far gone Give me a new morning Make it break before the dawn Give me a new morning Red & bloody like a crime Give me a new morning Let the nature rise & shine Lightnin’ on horizon The fall is gonna fall I’m sittin’ in my bedroom I’m waitin’ on a call Lightnin’ on horizon The end is drawin’ near My heart is boilin’ over The hollow in my fear Lightnin’ on horizon Peaceful calm inside I’m restful as the wicked & I got no mind to hide

I got a job at the concrete factory I got a university degree I’ve served two jail sentences For stealin’ wine & a little cheese I got a room with a little window I live in a welfare society I got three bugs & thirteen cockroaches That cook & clean for me Pretty soon I’ll live like an Injun With a rucksack & a tent Come first of May I’ll be put outdoors Cuz I can’t afford the rent I know it’s election time right now But I just can’t run for president I got a hard time & a full-time job Wonderin’ where all the money went Someone comes up to me With a religious smile Says would you care to read with us The Bible for a while? I says I don’t, that’s not my style I already burn in hell They says I’m in denial I got the concrete factory blues Someday they’ll give me concrete shoes

Two live tracks from the Andres Roots Roundabout band's first-ever jam together and seven studio pieces, with special guests L.R. Phoenix (UK/Finland), Bert Deivert (US/Sweden) and Ahti Bachblum (Estonia) augmenting the core line-up of Roots and Martin Eessalu on guitars, Indrek Tiisel on harmonica and Raul Terep on drums.
