01. Heaven's Not Overflowing

Lyrics by Pepper Keenan, Woody Weatherman
I have been hunting on the I-10 with Jesus and a liar
And watched an ancient man use a gun to retire
I have seen the wall fall down and crush the old
So now everybody's hungry, but they'd rather be cold

[chorus]
Let it go Let it go Let it go
Before we lose it all
In time, what's deserved
Always gets served

Cause we stick therefore we can break down in time
Hey fool! Haven't you heard? Heaven's not overflowing

And I have been to a seance for the Klu Klux Klan
I've seen a brother kill another with his own bare hand
I've seen your rising son fall in your mama's eye
And now the cops get a medal but he calls it a prize

[chorus]

You know the rules only apply on the witness stand
And that you never get in trouble if you stick with your plan
That's why I'm living for the day like a necromancer
Cause when you go, you're gonna take the pain back stabber

Stick me and let it go...


02. Albatross

Lyrics by Pepper Keenan, Reed Mullin
Well I'm feelin' left behind
Lord, what a waste of time
They're coming to get you
Run on

How can I respect your crime
When all you criminals whine
They bought and sold you
Run on, run on

[chorus 1]
Well, you can call me crazy
Well, you can call me wrong
See, I was born a liar - Albatross
Fly on, fly on

My home is kind, man it pays to be blind
Well, I promise to forget you
Run on, yeah!

No swallowed pride no conspiracy lined
Oh, broken promise of virtue
Run on, Lord, run on

[chorus 2]
Well, you can call me lazy
But I know where I belong
'Cuz, 'cuz I was born a liar - Albatross
Fly on, fly on

With your trust in love
From your God above...

Ooh, I believe...
The Albatross is me

[solo]

[chorus 3]
Well, you can call me crazy
Well, you can call me wrong
'Cuz, 'cuz I was born a liar - Albatross
Fly on, fly on

I should have seen the signs
Now the memory's fair behind
It was no big loss
Fly on, Albatross
Yeah

[solo]


03. Clean My Wounds

Lyrics by Pepper Keenan
I see the world through blood-shot eyes
Streets filled with blood from distant lies
The Dogs of War never compromise
No time for re-arranging

[chorus]
"Help me, Jesus! Help me clean my wounds!"
He said He cannot heal that kind
Bleeding soul becomes a bitter mind
He said it happens every time...

That's how the story goes
In the land of a thousand "no's"
In all over you
In time my mind is changing

Black on black gives me a heart attack
And the silence makes it deadly
Some choose to kill with a simple will
I've seen them fall past and steady

[chorus]

Knock it down!

Twist of fate won't give me a break
And myself, I'm slow and tired
I've got to rise with these blood-shot eyes
But I keep falling when I'm higher

[chorus]

That's how the story goes
In the land of a thousand "no's"
We are bleeding sins but our
Sins are always fading

Knock it down
Knock it down


04. Without Wings

Music by Pepper Keenan
(Instrumental)


05. Broken Man

Lyrics by Pepper Keenan, Reed Mullin
Deep in the soul of a man who's seen it all
He stands alone with borrowed time
Standing with two nothings new but they look at you
With broken backs and bleeding minds
And tell you they know even though you fall behind
You'll be the one who walks the line-standing tall
They're so fragile, but they always find you when you hide

[chorus]
'Cuz you're a broken man
In a broken land
And don't they wish they
Were blessed like you

The struggle in side of your mind is a waste of time - purest thoughts evaporate
Dark clouds reveal how you feel in your idle time - your own tail becomes the bait
You don't even know even though your blood flows
Destroy yourself, your the one you hate-standing tall
They're so fragile, but they always catch you when you're late

[chorus]

Standing tall, they look so small with your world upon their shoulders
But a broken man on broken land looks far beyond his brothers

Break for the sun You're the one, the chosen one, your time is up, your time is due
Cracked like a whip from the hand of a broken man. To find out that he's just like you
But you've seen it all in your mind, you've seen it all you built it up and they made it fall
Because you're killing yourself - you're so fragile, but they cannot crush you if you don't crawl

Now I'm a broken man
In a broken land
And don't they wish they were blessed like you
And don't they wish they were blessed like you
And don't they wish they were blessed like you
And don't they wish they were blessed like you
And don't they wish they were blessed like you
Don't they wish they were
Blessed


06. Señor Limpio

Lyrics by Pepper Keenan
Busted flat and dusted boy, your mind's such a terrible thing
Said the man with a dirty hand who claimed that he was king
Choking angels from inside trying to make them sing
'Cuz your short of breath and close to death from sleeping on the wing

[chorus]
Dirty king, dirty king now you're strapped in for
the ride - it's so hard to be a fighter when
Your hands are always tied

Mr. Innocent, blood says he kills but just for love
Too bad the good ones always have to take the blame
"Hey" sharp tongue liar making pay in bed of fire
Too bad your dreams are always made of losing games

[chorus]

But I want to I want to I want to but my hands were always tied up
But I want to I want to I want to but my hands were always tied up
And I wish I had myself a dime for every time I cursed your goddamn name
Mr. Clean

Sweating on the line down, forty wasting time
Ain't it funny how that money rots your brain?
Put your soul on trial 'cuz you lost it all to a tiny vial
Look in the mirror when you tell me who's insane

[chorus]

But I want to I want to I want to but my hands are always tied up
But I want to I want to I want to but my hands were always tied up
But I wish I had myself a dime for every time I cursed your goddamn name
Mr. Clean

08. Seven Days

Lyrics by Pepper Keenan, Reed Mullin, John Custer
Over time mistakes were few but I believe they're mine
Faded mind youth was old and the years were so unkind
I'm the one I face the change I know that stands before me
Believe in me 'cuz I damn sure don't believe in you

I cannot deny myself my anger and my pride
I cannot deny another life
Waiting to find another spike right through my hand
Hope I'm killed before I die

Worlds divide, long ago the memories still inside
Chances shine, seven days our fears become entwined
Seasons change, our time is gone our souls have
Grown much colder
Believe in me 'cuz I damn sure don't believe in you

Never again ware words that echo in my mind
Leaving still holds back the tide
Crucified with lies my blood turns into wine
Take a sip before I die

[chorus]

10. My Grain

Lyrics by Woody Weatherman, Pepper Keenan
Greed, pride, tell me what's your name?
Crippled will with tomorrow's pill
And I feel no pain but I can't remember
Who's to blame

[chorus]
This is not my home
This is not my home
But the source was always known

My grain

I beg, you steal, do you show me your signs of a sin
Blistered and torn by the pure and reborn
But they're just like us and remember
Man, they cave in...

[chorus]

Migraine

War stone, do you write your name in trust?
Word to the wise my instincts rise
All your heroes are gone and the proud
Ones have turned to dust...Seven dust
You can kill my pride but my head's still
Flying...

My grain
My grain
My grain
Migraine


11. Deliverance

Lyrics by Mike Dean, Woody Weatherman, Phil Swisher
Is there no one to deliver you from your ignorance?
Maybe you'll look and see there'll be no deliverance
Turn to vulture parasites who pray on lost souls
Suck the blood of hapless fools who give them control

[Chorus]
No deliverance
Pick your own deliverance
No deliverance

Sad domination by those who say more than you'll ever know
To the depths of dogma hollow
It's them you follow

No deliverance!

Irredemption pure deception won't see what's if or true
Shutter your world and you won't be shut out
The devastating truth
Denial on trial like a jumbo cap
Vile brother, are you through?

[Chorus]

Sad domination by those who say more than you'll ever know
To the depths of dogma hollow
It's them you follow

Bleeding inside, breathing with pride
They tow the line
We feed the crime with borrowed time select and find
No longer will they know
We amputate the show


12. Shake Like You

Lyrics by Pepper Keenan, Reed Mullin
Beginning of this world swelled with mankind
Who built a tool to kill a fool and lead the blind
Invent a rule to keep you down and call it sin
Then stand behind the wall and watch the games begin

Separate by class but keep the middle low
Instill the order with a border just for show
Give them weapons and let them have their piece of mine
Then tip them out so they can kill what's not their kind

And watch them shake like you

If tales come true when judgments due, they'll call us all liars
And put us in their hell and set our souls on fire
Remember sin your only friend, he brought you through
Hallucinate with hate and watch them shake like you


13. Shelter

Music & lyrics by Pepper Keenan
Once in a while you
Be better listening to fools for a change
I can see it in your eyes, it's the ones not like you
You despise

I'm no different than you, it's just that I do whatever I want to
That's what sets us apart I was free from the start, now you're leaving
Tell me who's heart is bleeding

So, once in a while you'd
Be better listening to fools for a change
What comes around follows and the truth becomes harder to swallow
So bang, bang, they shoot you down
No one says a word as your body hits the ground
Pick her up and put her down
The crowd screams aloud "she's not breathing"
And the only hands that reaches, is the one alone
You've been cheating on my friend

Tell me who's heart is bleeding again

So, once in a while you'll
Be better listening to fools for a change

Once in a while you'll
Be better listening to the fools...


14. Pearls Before Swine

Lyrics by Reed Mullin, Pepper Keenan
Father forgive me
Mother forsake me
I think they've all become too strong

Brother believe me
Silence is deadly
And its giving me the strength to carry on

[chorus]
Time has come, now I'm blind, dead and numb
You're killing me, you're killing me
When I look into your eyes I can see it's
The world that you despise
And you're giving me the strength to carry on
Forgive me...

Look for the devils in their eyes
Laughing, the blood has long been dried
To hide in your disguise, it goes on and on and on...
Wallow... pearls before swine

If the liar deceives you
Then the sin will appear true
Even if it leads me to the end

Killer accuse me
The devil breathes easy
- giving me the strength to carry on

[chorus]

Look for the devils in their eyes
Laughing, the blood has long been dried
To hide in your disguise, it goes on and on and on...
Wallow... pearls before swine

Now you've blown away the sun
Darkened eyes and a bitten tongue
Now you've blown away your song
