Track Name: Trucker's Song
Hi. Hi. Playing games with chemicals at my family's funeral. Misplaced my tragedy, like Jesus taught me. I am meat, no bones. And I am king with no throne. Asking for a royal burial, without a home.
Track Name: Sunday
I can't hear you. Hello? I've got vultures in my head. They're sick of playing dead. This is a confrontation. You wake in my blood, like the southern sun does. I will sacrifice myself to the heavens, where I'll be free. I'll be free. My father had a dream that my mother was the sea. He woke up blind in his eye. I got southern blood and the Devil's trust, but God still loves me, yeah.
Track Name: Is This Love
It's almost over now, I can feel it in my veins. I know I'm closer now, they beat the ugly out of my brain. A country fire, my baby had no name. A decent hour, the fortress had crumbled down. And I can tell by the look in your eyes that you hate me, and that's all right. 'Cause I was told by an angel that you miss me, but that's a lie. And I've torn down all the walls just to see you in your blue gown. And I know there's hope for her, 'cause she is drowning in the ground. Is this love that I'm dreaming, dreaming of?
Track Name: The Sweetness
There were flashlights shined into my eyes. They made loud demands, they nearly read me my rights. The asphault was cold beneath my naked bare feet. In a vulnerable position in the warm backseat. How do you keep your hair so neat and your eyes never fall to the floor? How do you keep your face so sweet, but your head always drags on the floor? They shut the door locked and left me there in the dark. Alone, or so I thought, but my heart beat it was not. Threw me down to the ground, where I received my new blood crown. Children, they fucked me up and slit my throat in the end. Morning came and washed the red rain right out of my front door. Ma, I miss your breath and your kiss and your sweetness I'll never forget. God, I miss your breath and your kiss and your sweetness I'll never forget. How do you keep your hair so neat and your eyes never fall to the floor? How do you keep your face so sweet, but your head always drags on the floor?
Track Name: King of Hearts
Now I can ask why you left us, but it won't matter much. 'Cause there won't be an answer, except the king, the king of hearts. And all her days and all my life, she sang a sad song called the king of hearts. I've been walking the same corner watching the stains change. This is your son's loneliness, and it's grown since the day you died. It's consuming me. It's been filtered into my dreams. And it's consuming me, and it will 'til the day I die. And all her days and all my life, she sang a sad song called the king of hearts.
Track Name: Angels (Sam's Song)
Angels dancing on my walls.
Track Name: Heaven Won't Wait
Lay me down, my friend. I heard voices that God did not send. On rooftops, that's where they wait, sleeping softly until I awake. These demons have nothing good to say. Except they'll miss me, 'cause heaven won't wait. Lay me down again, my friend, to soak me in my mother's men. So lay me down again, to clean me of my father's sins. I've lied ten hundred million times just to see you read between the lines. Lay me down, my friend. Lay me down again. You've been too gone too long.
Track Name: Heavenly
I was born in a box 'cause I was greedy. I remember the things that were sworn. And I recall the dress you wore. Things are different now. I see faces in clouds. I'm not coming back. I will not face the crowd. You're so heavenly to hold. You're so heavenly.
Track Name: Haircomb
And what about the man who raped my mother- do you think he rubbed off on me? And what about those lonesome churches- did the earth shake when you walked down their halls? And when you left, were you aware that the preacher's son along stood there? And I'll be at six feet. With a comb in my hand, I'll be there.
Track Name: Grandpa Blue
All my days are the same. They're different knowing you're not here. Jesus Christ, what have you done? I'll be here when you are gone. Jesus Christ, what have I done? Setting fire to the Gospel's Son. He's going overboard.
Track Name: Lead Me To Calvary
Your son is all alone, my friend. You can see it in his eyes. He's the one with the scratched-out eye just from time passing by. I'm not going back, my friend. I'm not going back again. Lead me to Calvary lest I forget Thy love for me.
Track Name: Heads On Fire
The crossbowed lisp of a cowardice. Her arrogance made me laugh. With stretched out arms, without guard, with a cold kiss I said goodbye. And painted limbs with suicide trims. And I don't think that we'll get by. And we'll go blind when we're on fire. We'll go blind when we're on fire. On golden wings where children sing in playing fields where we once laughed. Her paranoid eyes, yeah, they still shine. But I don't think there's time to get high. And we'll go blind when we're on fire. We'll go blind when we're on fire. So we'll get high.
