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…

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

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 d o w n . . .

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…

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…

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.

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…

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…
