Track Name: Vampire
She's looking fine, looking good, with her back against the wall
She's as pale as the moon, searching for another man to take the fall

I take a shot, getting brave, let the whiskey settle in
Lock my stare, say a prayer, should have known she's gonna get into my skin

Girl of the night, glamoured up, leads me to the alley way
Perfect girl, perfect love, perfect smile, though her eyes they do betray
Feel the bite, feeling light, fog is thick as I slowly fade away
Very soon, as we are, as I was, she will be dancing on my grave
Track Name: Serpent
The eyes, the neck, the serpent skin
The smell of poison medicine
This python's python’s, dropping his chin

First fist then wrist then everything.
Up to my elbows and then in
Oh No, Oh No! Its Swallowing Me

Don't stare, don't stare don't look at it
Don't catch it's glare its coming in
Oh No, Oh No! its ready to strike

I got it. I got it bad. I got it coming for me
Stop it. Stop it now

I know that where I go is deep inside
I can feel the fear you hide. I won't die.
I know what I say when I say that I'm gonna
cut you in your belly with a knife
Pry apart your stomach wide, step outside,
knowing that I have escaped my destruction

The eyes, the neck, the serpent skin
The store of poison medicine
This python's meaner, meaner than me

First fist then wrist then everything
Up to my elbows and then in
Oh No, Oh No! Its Swallowing Me

I got it. I got it bad. I got it coming for me
Stop it. Stop it now. Don’t stop it I will concede

I know that where I go is deep inside
I can feel the fear you hide. I won't die
I know what I say when I say that I'm gonna
cut you in your belly with a knife
Pry apart your stomach wide, step outside,
knowing that I have escaped my destruction

Sadly I will look and I will cry
Watch you as your stomach writhes, and you die
What have we done? This was never intended
But I can’t regret. I would not die
We’re all trying to survive, live our lives
longer than others, withstanding forever
Track Name: Black Rain
Hot damn, there's the people where you stand
And you know what you got to say
They bring to bear, searching for the dead who died
Long ago a hundred billion days
I know there's everlasting breath
There's a fountain far from death at sea
Theres no more where it came from, not enough where it goes
And the last of its going with me

I said “Awake the iron!”
Ship creaks, we sound the siren

Great Scott, how I know this fame is bought
How I know what I'm going to do
Time tells, that the oil is in the wells
And the waters got a colored hue
He drinks, with a black that penetrates
Got a soul-draining fist in the earth
Got to feed the hungry fires, run the engines, pay the liars
Till the last of the earth is through

I said “Awake the iron!”
Ship creaks, we sound the siren
Black rain falls, treasure coats the skin
Drink up son, fortune struck again

I said “Awake the iron!”
Ship creaks, we sound the siren
Black rain falls, treasure coats the skin
Drink up son, fortune struck again
Track Name: Hear Me Out
Hey lord, why can’t I watch my mouth?
I've got… something I can't get out
Won't you hear me?
Lord, oh won't you hear me out

Hey lord why don't you watch your mouth?
One day… Its never been about
Won't you hear me?
Lord, oh won't you hear me out

Down down baby, this is messy and so maybe I'll go
But please please save me, help me pick up all the pieces and grow

Hey lord… why don't you watch your mouth?
I’ve got… something I can't get out
Won't you hear me?
Lord, oh won't you hear me out?
Track Name: F
This is what we got and we make it work
Skin against the field till we get the first
Drag the chain along drag it down to ten
Drag the chain some more till we get the win

Head against the heart when we break the burst
Toss it out and pray, that we make it hurt
Run against the fire till I hit the sky
Raise our fist so high victors you and I

This is what we got when we make it work
Skin against the field till we get the first
Sneak between the lines and we roll and tuck
Take it all the way we don't give a ffffffffff
Track Name: Heavens Hold
I see many happy families tilling fertile soil
Heroes never stick together whether heavens hold

I did not know at once where we came, we came from
Ten-thousand miles ago where we once, we once were

I see many happy families tilling fertile soil
Heroes never stick together whether heavens hold

I did not know at once where we came, we came from
Ten-thousand miles ago where we once, we once were
But if you stop to look you will hear what I heard

Why did you fly your airplane underneath the sea?
You think I’d tell you how to breath, but its not natural
You are the one that everyone’s supposed to love,
But you are flying far above, not looking up
Track Name: Trouble Shared
When I see you I sew my tears to the ground
I can't take it when you bring bring me down

You make the children cry
You wring the heavens dry
You turn the world around
Lets hope what's lost is found

Oh! Stop! I can hardly take it again
You don't know how hard hard its been

You make the children cry
You wring the heavens dry
You turn the world around
Lets hope what's lost is found

Trouble shared is trouble halved now
I'm in trouble and the trouble is is now

Don't you know you make it harder to try
I do not know if I can keep this family good and alive
You put the pressure on us baby its you
If you can't get it right then sorry we're regretfully through

You make the children cry
You wring the heavens dry
You turn the world around
Lets hope what's lost is found

Trouble shared is trouble halved now.
I'm in trouble, and the trouble is is now
Track Name: Spy Boy
Spy boy run up front uptown
Call out to flag boy way down
Keep watch a spy come this way

Hold up I hear y’all drummin
Stand down my Big Chiefs Comin
And your suit is tattered and frayed

You can’t keep up with me
My suits prettier, see?

We’re not men in disguise
But we are the spirits of life
We dance sew color from grey

Bow down or bow out wild man
Turn back get a new game plan
This here is our street today

You can’t keep up with me
My suits prettiest, see?

Here I come, I come I come.
Here I come, I come I come.
Here I come, I come I come.

Spy boy runnin’ your way.
Track Name: Sister Sun
Hey, This is how we play
Starlight is our day
That's okay

Won't you please close your eyes come with me
In the darkness we’ll see everything

I can see the stars are falling, falling
Night retreats into the cracks along the mountain side
Heavy clouds so low they crawl in, crawl in
Creatures gather hymns are sung to chase away the light

Hey Sister Sun, won't you sleep in the morning
Oh satellite, Brother Moon turns around me

Stay away, just keep a dreaming, dreamin
Don't you come a creeping over to the other side
Keep our bodies keep em sleeping sleeping
Never wake a soul, forsake the day, embrace the night

Hey Sister Sun, won't you sleep in the morning
Oh satellite, Brother Moon turns around me
