Martin Elliott BSMB is a cracking rock 'n' roll song. Still Don't Know is incredible, instantly one of my favourites. Favorite track: Still Don't Know.

With the edge of the Mojave curling up into the fire The highway is a black snake, the back of which I ride I can feel the city breathing out over the rise But the engine coughs and shudders, I think the dream’s about to die With final mile stretched out, the needle met the dash I ran hard upon a promise, but I couldn’t make it last Well I swore there on the hood with the skyline below I’d walk among the failures, shipwrecked sailors and their gold The undiscovered genius, the thousand secret songs The million dollar smiles getting tired getting old Hey there baby don’t you look so sad The sun is just a big star running out of gas +++++++++++ Warning to the saints not to look into the lights Nothing there to save you when you’ve sold it to the night Pawn whatever’s left to lose beneath the palms For every fire burning there’s an ocean in the dark +++++++++++ Burnouts on the blacktop, restless in the heat Leather under leather, Empty veins and busted strings Nebraska girl no longer checking groceries, saving tips She’s the shadow beneath the shadow of a phone that never rings Call the number at the bottom of that faded billboard sign If you start to get too lonely and need someone to change your mind All you ghosts that never made it take your seats behind the bar Sing your karaoke music in the space between the stars Just a small town girl supersonic rocket man Tell me all about your pain tell me all about your plans All you television spirits, can I buy y’all a round I’ve played every dive in Portland but I’m kinda new in town +++++++++++++ Warning to the saints not to look into the lights Nothing there to save you when you’ve sold it to the night Pawn whatever’s left to lose beneath the palms For every fire burning there’s an ocean in the dark credits

I had a fever And I've gotten Higher I've felt that Lightning rod electrify my spine And I've known the dark days brokenhearted in the worst of ways oh man I've been so low I thought that I could die +++++++++++++++++++++++++ I don't know what love is, I thought I knew well I still don't know it when I feel it, but how can you tell I want to know, but I don't know how +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The cheap thrill of jealousy anything to keep her closer to me man, aint it strange the way the pain keeps it alive but she says it's more than that but you've got to want it bad and you've got to give yourself away before your time ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Baby there's a red moon on the rise I think that time is on our side and we can make it if we try Baby, I've got to learn to let it go You want my heart how about my soul think it over twice, then let me know ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Because I want the real thing I want the weight it brings I want your dreams to be your dreams upon this turning wheel I've just got to know you I've just got to be what you need I mean the good the bad the beautiful and everything in between
