Shots ring out on my street Well I don't want to know Reckons me to leave Or should I stay and run With the vampires on montegut They're knocking down my door That's when I reach for my pistol Someone did me wrong And now I'm out for blood How many counts rows the good man? How many miles do we sit in? How wonderful it all must look then? To the undertow of the drowned man
Rising Sun 04:47
Like a newborn baby crying for a home Like a flock of sparrows sitting on your throne Be good little children crossing St Claude Danger at every corner where care forgot Day it never dawns Here inside this house of the rising sun Gris gris around my neck is a bird in hand Praying to every angel left in the good book Hair of my trigger holds my last debt What's good for the gander ain't got nothing for me
Oh the sun it is so bright It juxtaposed my lazy eye The early bird and worm in sight Is the left side is the right side The history book reads way to long The old familiar favorite song Oh the light it is so lost In my darkest hour Hope the night goes long Pray for no more Hope the night goes short And forever ever ever
Windows on high Catches wrong side of the view On the outside looking in Shadows on bright Darkens the obvious hue On the outside looking Can't pretend time is on your side Such a shame cause I changed my mind Cascade like knives Back through an ice so thin On the inside looking out Cars crash into mine I'm a wreck but now I'm home On the inside looking out Turn yourself around Windows below Swallow of bitter words On the outside looking in Shadows turn way The small town where I stay On the outside looking in Where the rain goes The road goes nowhere
Dead Horse 03:14
Little girl don't you worry I don't wanna worry you Dark ruse got your number I don't wanna frighten you (When I) Call on you Call on you, girl Black cloud don't you follow I wouldn't follow me Devil's bürden off my shoulder Why don't you get behind me (Until I) Well I don't wanna wish you Wish you well Dead horse don't you follow I don't wanna hurry you Little girl don't you worry I don't wanna worry you
Vibrations 03:50
The night crawls into a creep Coming up the stairs Coming for me What's that there, behind me? A man with a knife following me No, it's only ghosts I feel their vibrations A bullet somewhere bears my name Walking on the sidewalk walking on blood stains The moon's a familiar red The voices I hear laughing at me They'll reap what they sow Straight forth from the get go Given chance not quick to scare No rest for the wicked Somewhere I should be Waiting on the corner waiting for What that's there behind me? A man with a knife following me
Going home I ain't ever going home You can stay up all night waiting for me But you can sure fire bet that you won't find me Going home I ain't ever going home Gonna cry Don't cry Gonna cry Going home I ain't ever going home You can lay down the reins with all of your rules But I'm smarter than whip and I kick like a mule Going home I ain't ever going home Going home I ain't ever coming home Never
Second line for minutemen Silver medal well what do you know A salute to middlemen Traded shells for decoration Now I'm burying a silence Flank of horns and tenor drums Now I'm marching that mile Procession of skeletons Soft parade for delta magicians Recognition but never a mention
No I don't like how you speak to me And I know you know so what's the deal And no I don't want to be your friend Cause a friend like you now that's so surreal Walk that walk Mile in my shoes Talk that talk Lord as my witness Yes I'm walking in the shadow of a doubt But if I die I know where I'm going But I better off not to see you there Cause heaven knows it's hell to pay back Lord I'm living so down and out But I keep my head up make my own way And I'd rather lay here than where you are Cause I tell your tower's coming down crumbling
What's there to say Make or break Made the grade Yay or nay Russian roulette Horse track bets No regrets A-Ok I wish you well Send off farewell Yes oh well Start again Thanks, old friend More of same For chrissake Politics Get over it Here comes your chance Strike up the band Pick up the pace C'mon clap your hands Pull over the wool Call off the wolves Wish in one hand and two in the bush Goodbye suffering So long darkness Farewell to my heartbreak But never forget Thank you Your welcome I've finally arrived Here lies sorrow right next to mine Bid you adieu Will write soon Wish me luck Keep in touch There, at the top Better stop, now It's lonely there From what I hear
