Beautiful Wanderer ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- Opposite poles The needle turns in place Sky shifts from gray to blue While the clouds form their magical shapes Layin in the murky swamp Lift me up and hose me off I’ll run through the field With the abandon of a child I’m drinking from the cup and it’s driving me wild Bundle of hues in a glass-walled box I’m lookin at ‘em like a dirty sly fox Unlock it and their brilliance shines Like everything there was at the beginning of time Too many years behind the oak door One day I just couldn’t take it anymore Brown blanket wrapped around me, it was good for a while Now it trips me up and it kills my style I’ll love you like you love me And I’ll let go of my dependencies Let the magnet pivot in place See if it can save the human race Not gonna look outside for me Gonna grab the mirror and go in deep You see what I’m lookin for’s already here Behind that wall of fear I’m the beautiful wanderer Beautiful wanderer Beautiful wanderer Beautiful wanderer Oh Always grabbing at a million tiny things Tryin to see if I can catch everything Now I’m gonna stop, just sit on the ground Watch the world turn and smile all around My future is bright, full like the seas And this moment has everything that I need I’ll forgive the small man with the bloody axe Even though he forgot to ask Hold the lantern up to everyone Look ‘em in the eye and I can I see the sun I’ll love you like you love me And I’ll let go of my dependencies Let the magnet pivot in place See if it can save the human race Not gonna look outside for me Gonna grab the mirror and go in deep You see what I’m lookin for’s already here Behind that wall of fear I’m the beautiful wanderer Beautiful wanderer Beautiful wanderer Beautiful wanderer Oh Oh Beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful wanderer Beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful wanderer Oh oh Yeah yeah

Whatever You Want ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- He walks in sits at the desk I take my seat Opens the file, begins to read I feel the heat Not enough, not enough that’s the verdict That’s all he sees More and more, more and more, that’s the order Endless decree Whatever you want me to be Whatever you want me to do To fill your undying need Never mind if none of it is true Ambition and desire Under pressure, under fire Ambition and desire Under pressure, under fire Walk out into the world My course is set With these eyes everything looks like a danger And I got nothing for it Try and try, try and try, got to please him Or they’ll be pain But the more that I try, try to please him The more pain comes anyway Bigger than before Pain comes anyway Bigger than before Whatever you want me to be Whatever you want me to do To fill your undying need Never mind if none of it is true Ambition and desire Under pressure, under fire Ambition and desire Under pressure, under fire She tells me it’s an inside job Unplug myself and connect to another way Sounds so simple and so hard But I’ll do anything for a brighter day A brighter day Brighter Whatever you want me to do Whatever you want me to be I will only follow what is true And I hope that will set me free Ambition and desire Release the pressure, light a new fire No more ambition, let go my desire Release the pressure, light a new fire No more unnecessary pain No more pain No more pain No more

Next Destination ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- Fiery red hair Eyes black as night Blue streaks running down her face Lips pink and tired Hands folded resting on her chin This is where the conversation begins How did we get here I know we can’t go back, no Where do we go next I can’t see the tracks, no Tense inhale Brushes hair from her cheek Pain in my side Been there for weeks We’re getting nowhere Why can’t we see Exactly where we are And who we’re supposed to be How did we get here I know we can’t go back, no Where do we go next I can’t see the tracks, no How did we get here I know we can’t go back, no Where do we go next I can’t see the tracks Stuck in place We can’t see The next destination The next destination Is it our resistance That keeps us from The next destination The next destination Stuck in place We can’t see The next destination The next destination The next destination Oh Oh The next destination The next destination The next destination The next destination

Scorchlight 02:14
Scorchlight ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- He tells me it’s gonna be all right Just head for the burning scorchlight Been burned a hundred thousand times But I can’t overcome my own fuckin’ mind Save me I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself Save me I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself Burning fire all around Trying to stand on shaking ground Playing with my toys was always fun Razor cuts deep and the blood starts to run Save me I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself Save me I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself Why did it happen to me A good girl is all I wanted to be But every time I try to get a grip He tells me it’s okay to let it slip He tells me it’s gonna be all right Just head for the burning scorchlight Been burned a hundred thousand times I can’t overcome my own fuckin’ mind Save me I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself Save me I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself Save me Oh, the scorchlight From the scorchlight Save me I don’t wanna go tonight No, I don’t wanna go tonight Save me from the scorchlight Save me from the scorchlight

Two Horses 05:18
Two Horses ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- Knee high mountain man gushes terror lava Twenty foot wooden spoon flies at my head Yellow bike sits happy in a green yard Sprinkled with rhubarb and raspberry dreams Saucy old victim turns to the west Last safe harbor drained ‘til it’s dry Lock ol’ Jack in the closet and play the game No time to fight back or have a good cry Where did it all go, what did I do, oh Can I find someone to find and solve it all Goofy little blue man tries to make it better Brave little bear is struck dumb Rusty high wire buzzes with a demon’s nest Goofy little trio comes over to kick red Where did it all go, what did I do, oh Can I find someone to find and solve it all Wooden horse silver horse carry but they go They’ll explode eventually you know Super slow toboggan slides down a hill of Hershey bars Carve the green in two and move to Mars Where did it all go, what did I do, oh Can I find someone to find and solve it all

Muffito 02:50
Muffito ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- Why did you come into my life Was it just to make it worse Why did you come into my life Was it just to cast your curse Why did you walk away from the light Was it not fun enough for you Why did you bring your darkness to me Was it just to make it through Well I don’t need your darkness I’m much too in need of the light So take your gloom away And let me live my life Why did you walk away from your truth Was it just too good for you Why did you give power back to the lie After all it had done to you Why ask me to help you retreat When I was different from the rest I wanted to be a friend to you Well darlin’ I did my best Well I don’t need your darkness I’m much too in need of the light So take your gloom away And let me live my life No, I don’t need your darkness I’m much too in need of the light So take your gloom away And let me live my life My life, my life, my life Let me live my My life, my life, my life My life, my life, my life

I Don't Want You ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- Well I was fine, no problems here Fixed myself without you, dear Then you walked in the room And it all comes back, way too soon I want you, but I don’t want you I think I need you when I don’t need you When I want the sugar I get the bite Makes me feel good, but I’m not right I remember days gone by Dancin’ crazy, drinkin’ all night So damn happy for awhile Something inside you made it all right I want you, but I don’t want you I think I need you when I don’t need you When I want the sugar I get the bite Makes me feel good, but it’s not right Then the trouble, then the fight Broken dishes, screaming all night So long, so hard to get away I was sure I could stay away Stay away Stay away I don’t want you I don’t want you I don’t want you I don’t want you I don’t want you I don’t want you I don’t want you I don’t want you

Short Little Fire ©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music --LYRICS-- I don’t know Why you want to go Go this way tonight I’ve got no choice But to follow you Follow your tiny light Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me There’s a road I don’t wanna go I don’t want to go down There’s no light When you get to the end Just arms dragging you out Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me You can dance with the devil You can sing with the saints Or hide your face from the moon But someday The collector will call I know that don’t mean nothing to you, now Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me Your short little fire is tempting me Short little fire Short little fire Short little fire

Atomic Shotgun New York, New York

If Dave Grohl and a 60’s-Era Grace Slick made sweaty, hot nookie in the back of a borrowed pickup truck on a random dusty shoulder off Route 66, the resulting spawn would be named Atomic Shotgun.
