Track Name: Hey Diddle Diddle
"Hey Diddle Diddle"

Well hey diddle diddle I bought the cat the fiddle
Taught the cow how to jump that split the doggy up the middle and on
Then the dish ran away with his spoony lil girly
Bought a big diamond ring then eloped into the moon and on yeah

And you know it ain't that easy being innocent old lil me
Oh it ain't that oh easy being innocent old lil me

Well hey fat fella let me paint your belly yella
so you look like the sun and run around the farm with Bella and on yeah
And then me oh myo I fought myself a tiger
but then we became friends and went sailing down the bayou and on yeah

And you know it ain't that easy being innocent old lil me
Oh it ain't that oh easy being innocent old lil me
Track Name: I Want You
"I Want You"

Girl I hate to make you cry
And I hate the way I feel at night
But darling you know it's the only way
That I seem to make it through my day

I want you to fill me up with open arms
I want you to be there when desire calls
I want you so badly to come back home
Come back darling come back home

I drank myself away again last night
Just to get away from all them reasons why
Yes it seems like I never have the right words to say
Come back darling please forgive me

I want you to fill me up with open arms
I want you to be there when desire calls
I want you so badly to come back home
Come back darling come back home
Come back darling come back home
Track Name: Spoon Fed
"Spoon Fed"

the wheel rolls around
the stars will fall
the captain is dead at his post
i've lost myself in now

in time they'll fall
in time it all comes back around
hey man, is that spoon fed?
did your daddy take the medicine and come out dead?

My sense of time is naught
my head is in the clouds
the ribbons are done up in her hair
as spiders march up the stairs

in time they'll fall
in time it all comes back around
hey man, is that spoon fed?
did your daddy take the medicine and come out dead?

how we cut through the night like hollow pointed bullets
packed with amphetamines and nicotine
we had no intention of stopping or even slowing down
if the thought crossed out minds
::CENSORED::
we are all ravenous werewolf children
strangled in the intestines of our mother's carcass
howling at the night sky while chasing the moon

in time they'll fall
in time it all comes back around
hey man, is that spoon fed?
did your daddy take the medicine and come out dead?
Track Name: What Have I Done
"What Have I Done"

There's steam rolling over the flat land
I grit my teeth then i grab that gun

What have I done
What have I done
What have I done
To deserve this

Now a woman kneels at the grave of her children
I sit and watch her tears fall from afar
Now the fog rushed over our lands
I can't see her now yet I can hear her call

What have I done
What have I done
What have I done
To deserve this
Track Name: Hell & A Headlight
"Hell & A Headlight"

I can hear them howling out my window
Washed my floor with salt and lined it on my sill
Devils shoe string hanging over my front door
Must keep them hounds at bay from taking any more

Well it seems as if i'm standing in between
hell and a headlight

Oh yes i did dig where the southern crossed the dog
right out of thin air came a girl a real tush hog
well it's been 10 years now and how that time has past
should have kept my mouth done shut and never made that pact

Well it seems as if i'm standing in between
hell and a headlight
Track Name: What You Got In Your Pocket
"What You Got In Your Pocket"

What you got in your pocket
I wanna see it now
What you got in your pocket girl
Is it a ticket to go down town
What you got in your pocket
I know it can't be good
Whenever you run away there's always some other dude

Oh baby doll
I dont miss you
I know it's hard to believe but
Should I stay here or shall I leave

What you got in your pocket
I wanna see it now
What you got in your pocket love
Is it something that will run me round
Every time the summer comes babe you know it has to end
And I'm walking around now without my only friend

Oh baby doll
I dont miss you
I know it's hard to believe but
Should I stay here or shall I leave

What you got in your pocket now
What you got in your pocket babe
Come on tell me tell me now
Oh baby

What you got in your pocket now
What you got in your pocket babe
Come on tell me tell me doll
Oh baby doll
Track Name: Tarot Card
"Tarot Card"

Tick tock
Alarm clock ring'n
Place feels a little less than home
Rusty leaves and howl'n trees
Someone give that dog a bone
Well hell the old time sailor
Finally dabbled in the tarot cards
And I believe it's time for a change
Cuz I really don't like the odds

Why would I try to change you
If I just wanna take you home
Why would I try to change you
If I just wanna take you home

Kiss'n soft lips
While silver fish
Sliver into the cracks of her room
Dark face peeks into the window
Had to scare'm away with the broom

Why would I try to change you
If I just wanna take you home
Why would I try to change you
If I just wanna take you home
Track Name: Kansas City
"Kansas City"

I know it's wrong
but it feels so god damn right
I shouldn't be so unfaithful
but just give me one more night
We'll chase shoot'n stars
get kicked out of bars
Make love'n in the junkyard
in old stock cars

Oh what you do to me
Darling I wish that you could see
What you do to me

Well get dolled up cuz we're leaving tonight
No need to bring the dresser honey we'll start a new life
I know the perfect place and I'mma take you there
Don't got enough time so don't give me that stare

Oh what you do to me
Darling I wish that you could see
What you do to me

So Let's go down to Kansas City
Fix ya a nice dress you'll sure look pretty
I got a new pair of shoes and a Cadillac
Box of cigars and I'll keep my guns in the back

Oh what you do to me
Darling I wish that you could see
What you do to me

Don't you worry about my brother
He'll never run that far
He's prolly with that floozy at Johnny's Bar
I got the engine revved on this old straight six
If you're ready to hit the tar babe I'm ready for the stick

Oh what you do to me
Darling I wish that you could see
What you do to me

So Let's go down to Kansas City
Fix ya a nice dress you'll sure look pretty
I got a new pair of shoes and a Cadillac
Box of cigars and I'll keep my guns in the back

Oh what you do to me
Darling I wish that you could see
What you do to me

We're gonna down to Kansas City
Track Name: You Look Like Someone
"You Look Like Someone"

she's got a bent and twisted attitude
my ballerina entered the room
now she's about to bust in like a miracle
and I just hope that it ain't too soon

you look like someone
I could fall in love with
you look like someone
I could love

well I'll share with you a few things that she truly loves
my grizzly beard ducks peppermint and all my kisses and hugs
and she knows that I'm her's back and forth to the moon
well I dream of being her plate if she'll just be my spoon

you look like someone
I could fall in love with
you look like someone
I could love
Track Name: Witness Says
"Witness Says"

witness says to the judge and jury
i ain't sure of what i saw
it was cold and damp and dark as shit
and i don't wanna hurt no one

yet he had a stetson hat
perhaps the very same one
yet it was cold and damp and dark as shit
and i don't wanna hurt no one

well i best keep my mouth shut
i dont wanna do no harm
i can see that he has a wife and some young children of his own
no i dont believe in the lord
but i believe in common good
and i've seen some bad sons in the day
and i can tell you that he ain't one

HE AIN'T ONE
Track Name: Hallow's Eve
"Hallow's Eve"

All my children listen unto me
Tonight the devil comes into thee
For this is hallow's eve

Lay a skeleton at your sill
Embrace the darkness and do his will
This is hallow's eve

Line your bed with lion salt
On the windows and down the hall
This is hallow's eve

Goofer dust above your door
Chalk the sigil on the kitchen floor
This is hallow's eve
Track Name: Pitchfork '08
"Pitchfork '08"

I've been watching you
I've been watching you
Steady with a pitchfork in his hand

Archangel Saint Michael
Steady with a pitchfork in his hand
Pokes and prods
For the lord
Trying to make me understand
Well I understand I understand

Steady with a pitchfork in his hand

Alpha Omega
Steady with a pitchfork in his hand
Sipped his wine
Broke his bread
Yes I denied his sons right hand
I understand I understand
Steady with a pitchfork in his hand
Track Name: Jessica
"Jessica"

I was told that you was never coming back
ever since your mamas cancer and your daddies heart attack
must have been damn near 5 years ago
those wounds have healed by now
you got them long sleeves to cover your scars i'm sure

and yes we're all dying slowly
poisoned and worse
so lets make like roman candles in the night
and get lit up before we burst

well i used to run to jessica's house with not a dime in my hand
run 17 miles from my front porch and her daddy just didn't understand
when i turned 16 i'd steal my brothers car and drive jessica down to the badlands
we'd spend the night smoking cigarettes and watching the stars
yeah she made me feel just like a real man

and yes we're all dying slowly
poisoned and worse
so lets make like roman candles in the night
and get lit up before we burst

I was told that you was never coming back
ever since your mamas cancer and your daddies heart attack
must have been damn near 5 years ago
those wounds have healed by now
you got them long sleeves to cover your scars i'm sure
and you got that baby girl
with whom your hand in hand
you're telling me i'm the daddy
hell yeah i understand
with all those crazy nights
that i'd steal my brothers car
no wonder your grandparents took you away
we damn near killed your parents that's sure

and yes we're all dying slowly
poisoned and worse
so lets make like roman candles in the night
and get lit up before we burst
Track Name: Feels Like Home
"Feels Like Home"

I come back home
Least everyday or so
blind are drawn shutters shut
all the doors are boarded up

this is where i wanna be
it feels like home
oh darling this is where i wanna be
it feels just like home

am i the man i'm supposed to be
don't mind as long as she thinks so
patch her up and mend her wings
how i pray for the nights where she sings

this is where i wanna be
it feels like home
oh darling this is where i wanna be
it feels just like home

clocks wound slow
across the snow
spirits haunt this land
darling where have you been

this is where i wanna be
it feels like home
oh darling this is where i wanna be
it feels just like home
Track Name: Maple Shade Motel
"Maple Shade Motet"

you're as cheap as the hourly rate
at maple shade
amongst the dust and the linens you lay
at maple shade

you let him tempt you and drag you to the mud
he wrapped you up in pipe dreams and love

the sign flickers as i crumble away
at maple shade
the room was vacant so i asked the ashtray
at maple shade

you let him tempt you and drag you along
filled you up with pipe dreams and love

now who wouldn't love you with those eyes glistening glittered gold
now who wouldn't keep you for their own
now who wouldn't love you with those eyes glistening glittered gold
now who wouldn't keep you for their own

you're as cheap as the hourly rate
at may-ple shade
