  • FFRW 34 Zebra Spots Side B Aired: Thursday, February 27, 2020

    So, come all ye rolling minstrels and together we will try
    To rouse the spirit of the earth and move the rolling sky
    Yeah, you gotta be strong There's no other way to fund it
    All the plantings are young and able And I hope you find a way to buy it
    Oh god, I'm high    Waterfalls of light
    Flood my eyes with light Flood my eyes with my aching eyesight
    The things I do You'd never try What I get free You have to buy
    I'm proud of my life But don't ask me why 'Cause if i told ya, I'd probably...

  • FFRW 33 Zebra Spots Side A Aired: Wednesday, February 19, 2020

    On a hot desert night we can drive down the road
    And the stars will spell out your name
    I could hear the screams from up above
    If it ain't a fist it isn't love
    Then I get to see how close I can get to it without giving in
    Then I get to rub up against it Till I break the skin
    Flesh is weak, but is weakness always bad?
    Weakness serves to glorify, to ennoble, to sanctify
    My eyes have seen the glory of the draining of the ditch
    I only come to Baton Rouge to find myself a witch
    haunted by the ghost of the thing left to past

  • FFRW 32 Pale Blue Side B Aired: Wednesday, February 12, 2020

    What I want
    Mornings to the winter and afternoons to the summer
    Home spun desperation's knowing
    Inside your cover's always blown
    Bougainvilleas bloom and wind
    Be careful mind the strangle vines
    No one can save the pure of the brave
    There's a lot of souls
    Ain't drinking from the well locked in a factory
    What a season to be beautiful without a reason
    I set off running to wake from the dream
    My brother's rifle went into the sheen
    Life is whittled Life's a riddle
    Man's a fiddle that life plays on

  • FFRW 29 January 2004 Side B Aired: Wednesday, January 22, 2020

    Her eyes, she's on the dark side Neutralize every man in sight  
    Gabriel before me Raphael behind me Michael to my right 
    Uriel on my left side In the circle of fire
    Grace O'Malley is coming over the sea, armed warriors as her guard, 
    Last night as I lay dreaming my way across the sea
    James Mangan brought me comfort with laudnum and poitin
    Easy to fall part of your skull starts to break away
    A cheater's walk down the block behind this evil street
    Flirt with me don't keep hurtin' me don't cause me pain

  • FFRW 28 January 2004 Aired: Wednesday, January 15, 2020

    It's a beautiful world we live in  A sweet romantic place
    Baby is grateful for her life  She owes the angels for their lullaby
    Let the moon drip in Let the rain fall out
    Where's the justice and where's the sense?
    When all the pain is on my side of the fence
    Shaded eyes they are the ones who'll lead you to your deliverance
    From the figure of doom Force you to understand
    Lock you in a room with a holy roller and a one man band
    What kind of woman would make her fortress out of straw
