The driving force behind funk rock act Groove Thangs and eclectic barband Shack Daddys, Bonefish Johnny's been crossing over between the blues, indie and jamband scenes for years.

Track Name: Issues
Went to your house
late last night
something was wrong
everything was right
you were so sweet
so trusting
but to love a man like me
is disgusting

it ain't you, babe
it's me
it ain't you, babe
it's me
I got issues
from long time ago
I got issues
you ought to know

I like this place
I like this town
if I had roots
I'd put them down
perfect end
to a perfect day
you know I love you, baby
but I just can't stay

it ain't you, babe
it's me
it ain't you, babe
it's me
I got issues
from long time ago
I got issues
you ought to know
I got issues
from long time ago
I got issues
you ought to know

Track Name: Millions, Billions, Trillions
I woke up this morning and I heard the news
whole lot of people singing the blues
some took a haircut, some got a shave
everybody else lost an arm and a leg

millions and billions and trillions
millions and billions and trillions
millions and billions and trillions
man, that's a lot of dough

banks they sank, brokers went broke
but that ain't the punchline, that's just the joke
nobody busted but we threw the bail
too big to fail is too big to jail

millions and billions and trillions
millions and billions and trillions
millions and billions and trillions
man, that's a lot of bread

deficit spending, capital gains
same old cats are at it again
telling us the bill is due
but you know who that we owe it to

millions and billions and trillions
millions and billions and trillions
millions and billions and trillions
man, that's a lot of dough

Track Name: Break Every Mirror
Hey you
you're a mess
yeah you
you're a goddamn mess
you're a big disgrace
I'm sick of your face
I'm gonna break every mirror in this goddamn place

You big ape
you're out of shape
you big ape
you're out of shape
I can smell your gloom
I can see your doom
I'm gonna break every mirror in this goddamn room

They say that it's only
only seven years bad luck
but it could be seven or even eleven
I don't give a damn

You fat slob
get a job
you fat slob
get a job
makes me wanna die
when I see a grown man cry
I'm gonna break every mirror in this goddamn sty
