Vampire 04:09
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

Serpent 03:43
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

Black Rain 03:54
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

Hear Me Out 05:00
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?

F 03:24
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

Heavens Hold 05:31
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

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

Spy Boy 02:49
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.

Sister Sun 05:56
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
