Track Name: Crawling {a fondness for hometown scars}
You creep and you crawl…
On the edge of it all…
On the edge of it a l l…
You creep and you crawl…
On the edge of it all…
On the edge of it all…

In spite of it all…

You loved your morphine
You filled your veins
You met your demons
You were cut at the seams

Pretty, pretty girl
Your pretty, pretty feet are hurting
You broken girl, the snake will crawl (snake will crawl)
Pretty, pretty girl
You turn, and run further
It ain’t worth the blood in your veins

You sow your lover bitch
I hope that you die
Down to your afternoon deathbed
I can see through your eyes
Jesus will buy back your soul
When your death takes its toll
Beneath the waves of crazy sorrow
You walk the meadow slow

Pretty, pretty girl
Your pretty, pretty feet are hurting
You broken girl, the snake will crawl
(snake will crawl)
Pretty, pretty girl
You turn, and run further
It ain’t worth the blood in your veins

Pretty, pretty girl
You turn, and run further
It ain’t worth the blood in your veins…
Track Name: In December {beyond our grasp}
Everything’s gonna be alright
when I’m with her, the taste of her tears
You’re the, the one I adore
The snow is so cold, it’s glistening
Time passes quickly
It’s fading away, yeah, it’s fading away

There was no conversation
I heard such a sweet melody, she was singing for me
Yeah, it gave me a chill

And I went down to the river
We’ll climb that hill to the river
Flying form tree to tree

He’s lonely still, when ya gonna let it roll
When ya gonna let it rock ‘n’ roll
Who’s gonna, who’s gonna save his soul

And I went down to the river
We’ll climb that hill to the river
Flying from tree to tree

C’mon, and sit by the fire with me
C’mon, and sit by the fire with me
C’mon, and sit by the fire with me
C’mon, and sit by the fire with me
C’mon, and sit by the fire with me
C’mon, and sit by the fire with me
C’mon, and sit by the fire with me

C’mon…
and sit by the fire… with me
Track Name: Troubles Down {attic crawlspace}
Smell of roses does not remain, I’m crawling, crawling
Like a snake, I’m hung over, hung up, & hung down

So I took my, took my troubles down
And I quit my, quit my lowdown ways
And I took my, my troubles down

I’m on a one way track
Burgundy & black
All is gone, all is gone
So far away from home, you’re walking all alone
The fields burn away

The music did play, the smoke drifts away
I put on my smile
I wander off in shame even through the tears
I took my troubles down, down, down

Smell of roses does not remain, I’m crawling, crawling
Like a snake, I’m hung over, hung up, & hung down

So I took my, took my troubles down
And I quit my, quit my lowdown ways
And I took my, my troubles down

It’s just a passing fright, as cold as ice
My head began to spin
Stabbing on your brain every breath you breathe
No place to hide, to hide, to hide

I can’t stand this (can’t cha hear me rapping)
Silk & satin (put on my blanket)
I can’t stand this (can’t cha hear me rapping)
Silk & satin (put on my blanket)

Smell of roses does not remain, I’m crawling, crawling
Like a snake, I’m hung over, hung up, & hung down

So I took my, took my troubles down
And I quit my, quit my lowdown ways
And I took my, my troubles down

Track Name: In This Life {wake up and smell the dead bodies}
You stumble a mile, you take a stumble
So many dead end roads you’re on
You’re playing with fire, you cover your mirrors
How many bedrooms have you burned down?

Don’t let yourself fall, just know where you’re going
Keep looking for doctor’s cure
Said she could get killed, said she was abused
Stranded in forgotten years

Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on

The weakness it showed, down suicide road
Doctor, doctor, got no cure
As far as my poor eyes could see, baby brings me to my knees
The habit, the hurt that it feeds
With your head face down in bed, let the dead bury the dead
They put a price on her head

Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on

Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on
Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on…
Track Name: Nothing to Lose {x-ray illusion}
Night is morn to the break of day
Fallen soul, don’t you turn away
The voice
Bird of blossom likes to drive away
Every thought, and every cage inside
Song bird, sing

Song bird sing & give yourself away
You give, you give, yourself away
Got nothing to lose
Song bird sing & give yourself away
You give, you give, yourself away
Got nothing to lose

Happy song be with sorrows play
Song bird cradle my tears away
Rejoice
Song bird, sing
Song bird, sing

Song bird sing & give yourself away
You give, you give, yourself away
Got nothing to lose
Song bird sing & give yourself away
You give, you give, yourself away
Got nothing to lose
Got nothing to lose

You give yourself away!
You headed back!
I’ve always been confused
between the distance
from me to you!
You put yourself away!
You’re locked up in a cage!

People think I’m c r a z y

You got nothing to lose…
You got nothing to lose
You got nothing to lose

You got nothing to lose
You got nothing to lose…
Track Name: Sad Eyed Lady {the pressure and need for release}
Lady…
She came out of the dark
Caused my heart to flutter
And she kills me…
With the way she smiles

Lady…
I know that you’re lonely
There’s nowhere to hide
Dry these smiles that melt in your eyes
She’s seen some ups & downs
The wind blowing ’round
She stays silent, & alone in the world

Why
don’t you look my way?
And she hides behind her face
And i’m down on my knees
Fall down on your knees

She snowflakes in the light of the sun, in all things, & all places
Lady spent the whole night drinking
Apple & the almond trees will blossom

Why,
don’t you look my way?
And she hides behind her fate
And I’m down on my knees
Fall down on your knees

She snowflakes in the light of the sun, in all things, & all places
Lady spent the whole night drinking
Apple & the almond trees will b l o s s o m

How beautiful she would be in one of those gorgeous…
c o s t u m e s. . .

In the soft evening air, I shall like to cherish her
Dear life in her red dusky glow
Lady
She came out of the dark
Caused my heart to flutter
And she kills me
With the way…
she smiles.
Track Name: Silver Candy {shivering leafless and hollowed-out}
They are not your brothers
They are not your friends
They don’t give a damn about you
We are hungry men

So sell me to melt away…

Put us in your pockets
Your locket for safe keeping
We haven’t eaten well for days
It leaves us wandering

Sell me to melt away…

Sell my tears, like the gentle rain
Sell my eyes, just like silver candy
Sell me the memory of a bitter summer’s day
Sell my smile & tears, just like silver candy

So sell me to melt away…

So sell me to melt away…
Sell me to melt away…

Sell my tears, like the gentle rain
Sell my eyes, just like silver candy
Sell me the memory of a bitter summer’s day
Sell my smile & tears, just like silver candy
Sell my tears, like the gentle rain
Sell my eyes, just like silver candy
Sell me the memory of a bitter summer’s day
Sell my smile & tears, just like silver candy

So sell me to melt away…
Track Name: Got Monsters {I no longer exist}
I’ve got monsters
How ’bout you?
Was born a monster
Do you hide your monsters, too?

Now everybody else in here…
What has become of you?
I’ve got monsters…
How about you?

We got monsters…
We suffer like the rest
Man, I don’t know & I don’t care
What a lovely home we shared
What a tangled web we have weaved

Now everybody else in here…
What has become of you?
I’ve got monsters…
How about you?

Now everybody else in here…
What has become of you?
I tiptoed up to my daughter’s room
And I saw her monsters, too
I’ve got monsters…
How…
About you?

Yes, I’ve got monsters, too

Yes, I’ve got monsters, too.
Track Name: Son of a Gun {jail face}
I’m the son of a gun
Sing a road, steal a song
In the flood I’ve got tears of rage
Sitting on top of the world gone wrong

Yes, I’m doing fine
Better talk this over
Falling from the sky
Things have changed me, that isn’t true

I’m the son of a gun
A mole in the country
Sing a road, steal a song
Sitting on top of the world gone wrong

Yes i’m doin’ fine
Better talk this over
Falling from the sky
Things have changed me, that isn’t true

I smile in the night
I try to smile in the day
Nothing, nothing is wrong or right
But something’s in the way
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright

Any love to share?
Cause i can’t stand it
Turned it inside out
All he ever wanted was someone he could trust

I smile in the night
I try to smile in the day
Nothing, nothing is wrong or right
but something is in the way
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright

It’s alright
It’s alright

I’m the son of a gun
I’m the son of a gun
I’m the son of a gun
I’m the son of a gun
I’m the son of a gun
I’m the son of a gun…
Track Name: Devil's Pride {forever in transition}
Spring time turn upon ourselves
Down the tracks, down the road
Changed my heart, broke us apart
I’m finally free, i’m finally free

You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know

Cover up the truth with your lies
The hurt i suffered, kiss goodbye
I’m someone else is what I’m told
To each his own, to each his own

leaving, i’ll be on my way
just know you’re not alone
leaving, it’s so hard to do
wrapped up in your arms

You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know

Dogs run free, don’t you breathe it
Then what must be then what must be

(You’ll never know the hurt I suffered)

Leaving, I’ll be on my way
Just know you’re not alone
Leaving, it’s so hard to do
Wrapped up in your arms

You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never know
You’ll never know the hurt I suffered, fucker, you’ll never k n o w . . .
Track Name: Bleed for Something Beautiful {turquoise bloodline}
Dance in your blood
You’re broken up
In your blood

You’ve torn the bandage off

Wake up

I saw you
And became
Empty
Down in that soul

Can I find a cure?
‘Cause i need you

And I’ll bleed
For something beautiful
And I’ll bleed
Bleed, for you
