MYSTERY WRITERS Lyrics © Chris Desjardins Music © Chris Desjardins and Peter Andrus Bliss is out of date, a stolen car from out of state My exaltation got driven …. to burning hell, I died right before I cried out the story I had to tell, I’ve made it my vocation, putting aside elation, our story’s in Navajo code made it my vocation, putting aside elation, taking me where I don’t wanna go secrets, a million pieces, down a twisted road CHORUS mystery writers write blues in high heel shoes, transcribe history on the astral plane in the blink of an eye, sacred to profane spilled wine, it’s just… an old… bloodstain jot down our lies, in ink of pouring rain, dig our pit, of psychic pain, checked into my horror hotel I died right before I cried out the story I had to tell, midnight confessions, love melts away, cuts inhibitions, emotional decay, Time cut in two, handmade for you, splits atoms with a traumatic ray Time cut in two, …handmade for you…handmade….just for you CHORUS mystery writers write blues in high heel shoes, transcribe history on the astral plane in the blink of an eye, sacred to profane spilled wine, it’s just…an old… bloodstain Steered into blackness, a wrong turn home A mystery voice on a long dead phone A ghost’s wrong number, now so alone Forever lost, always astray, navigating the way, from a stifled moan

Mother's Worry © Chris Desjardins (chorus:) I'm my mother's worry In a desperate hurry To get my story told I can always find a mark Even in the dark Now I'm a winner in this sorry game. I'd like to be laying out in my own backyard Smellin bacon from the kitchen in summer But my house is in a suitcase Scar from the preacher's razor on my face No matinee idols in my rearview mirror You've got rocks in your head from drinkin too much beer Drive-In movie's your home away from home Drunk in the mornin blood's cold to the bone. My life story's in a spiral notebook Teenage hitchhiker ya wanna take a look? See all the dreams I forsook I'm my mother's worry Can't hold a job All I do is lie and rob I'm my mother's worry I can sign the check My family's like my car A beat-up wreck Why is the earth so flat When I walk the floor at night? I'm gonna sail off the edge Before early mornin's light Pull the needle from your sleepin arm On our wedding night Sheriff breathin down our necks Small town talkin about two kids "They're playin with a timebomb called sex!" I'm my mother's worry In a desperate hurry To get my story told I can always find a mark Even in the dark Now I'm a winner in this sorry game. (solo) Married to a sinner Who used to be a winner Now she's got no last name I'm my mother's worry, Gotta get my story told I don't wanna have to sell my soul! I'm my mother's worry In a desperate hurry To get my story told I can always find a mark Even in the dark Now I'm a loser in this sorry game.
