02. Take My Bones Away

You lead the way
I'll follow...

You lead the way
I'll follow...

What was the plan here? I can't seem to stop
Pissing and spitting from bottom to top
Picking up viscera, tendons and broken remains

Did you find another way?
Was it my turn, or yours, to say?
"Did you find another way?"

Take my bones away
I'll find them every day

I took your advice and the requisite pills
And the forbidden pies from a white windowsill
Swallowing caveats, Baphomet's breath and migraines

Did I tell you "don't come home"?
Why was your mouth beginning to foam?
Did I tell you "don't come home"?

Take my bones away
I'll find them every day

Take my bones away
Take my bones away
Take my bones away
Take my bones away
Take my bones away
Take my bones away


03. March To The Sea

There was an anchor
There was a silver-sweet refrain
You tucked your fingers in between my troubled bones
And what you did next was second-to-none
You really let us down
You tied yourself up
And jumped in the sea
Never to come home

Valium
You left me all alone
Tell me when
I will be whole again

There was a whisper
Once there were heralds and parades
You sang your secrets through the tolling of the tide
The fugitive rooms, the amateur tombs
The silence and cries
The quickening beat
Your march to the sea
Never to return

Sweet morphine
You've taken all of me
Let me know
When you will let me go

Heroin
Where did you take my friend?
Tell me why
Those ropes are hanging high

Valium
You left me all alone


04. Little Things

Cry your eyes out
A lesson left unlearned
I wish I was airborne
Then I could watch it turn

They've taken everything
Hung us out to dry
They've taken every thing

Playing enemy
This is thought control

You're a greasy little thing
You'll scream before you sing
and you make a lot of noise
You lied about everything
You greasy little thing

I got with the program
I tried to fall in line
I wish I was drowning
Than I could watch you burn

They've taken everything
Hung us out to dry
They've taken every thing
Now you're....

You're a sneaky little thing
You'll scream before you sing
And you make a lot of noise
You lied about everything
You sneaky little thing

When the tide rolls in
When the trapdoor starts to swing
When the swans have sung
I'll be myself again


05. Twinkler

Though I stand in mire
I will speak distant fire
Though I'm laid to ground
I will walk through age and sound

Though I stand in mire
I will speak distant fire
Though I'm laid to ground
I will walk through age and sound


06. Cocainium

Seven branches on my window
Waiting for the sun to come around
Take this on an empty stomach
Waiting for the spring to come around

Save yourself
By the way
Never ride alone

Take me down easy
I can't stand the sight or the smell
It's getting harder and harder and harder and harder to tell

Tell me when the blood stops flowing
Let it rest, it's run into the ground
Just in case the dogs are feeding
Shut the door so they won't hear the sound

Save Yourself
By the way
Never ride alone

Show me no quarter
I can't stand the sight or the smell
It's getting harder and harder and harder and harder to tell

Put me to pasture
I can't stand the sight or the smell
It's getting harder and harder and harder and harder to tell


07. Back Where I Belong

Tell me now
Who's in charge here?
I thought help was on the way
It took so many years to get out of here
Now I'm back where I belong
Now I'm back where I belong
Next to you
Stuck to you

Here's the rub....
There's no difference
Between poison and the cure
When the one tastes so great it's a crying shame
That I'm back where I belong
Now I'm back where I belong
Next to you
Stuck with you

Say goodnight to your mother
Say a prayer for your father
Wake me when the thunderclouds are rolling in
Take me to a hazy sunday morning

I heard your eyes and I touched your tongue
When we were kids we never felt so young
Take me to a hazy Sunday morning

I heard your eyes and I touched your tongue
When we were kids we never felt so young
Take me to a hazy Sunday morning


08. Sea Lungs

I can't breathe
Nor can I see the sun
It's so cold in here
Where did I go wrong?

All these days
I've sail'd cross these wicked seas
and I have petitioned the deep
For water to keep me clean

When my ship comes in
I'll find a way to breathe again

"Breathe in deep
Let the sea fill your lungs
It's better to brace for death
Than die for a promised land"

"Why so sad?
Your tears are no match for mine
I am eternal sea
And you are a drowning man"

When my ship comes in
I'll find a way to breathe again

When my ship comes in
I'll find a way to breathe again

When my ship comes in
I'll find a way to breathe again


09. Eula

Settle down
This won't last long
I've been out
And I want back in
So why not completely fade away

When my bones begin to break
And my head begins to shake
It's my own blood

When my house becomes a cage
And the neighbours turn away
It's my own blood

Settle down
This won't last long
I've been out
And I want back in
So why not completely fade away

"Where the butcher's hand is home"
Laughs the blade above the throne
"It's my own blood"

"Oh, this apple makes me sick"
Cries the pig upon his stick
"It's my own blood"

And I can't forget the taste
Can't forget the taste of my own tongue
And I can't forget the taste
Can't forget the taste of my own tongue


And If I had a heart
I'd waste it on you
But it's all together far too long
Since I took you down

Settle down
This won't last long
I've been out
And I want back in
So why not completely fade away

When we've licked all of the lips
And the salt-stained fingertips
It's our own blood

When our lambs and lions made
Debts no righteous man can pay
It's our own blood

And I can't forget the taste
Can't forget the taste of my own tongue
And I can't forget the taste
Can't forget the taste of my own tongue

Instrumental


11. Board Up The House

Take me away from the ocean, I've already gone away
I'm already gone

Take me up north to the blue grass, horse meat and pharmacies
I'm already gone

Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls
Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls

We wanted the best for our sweet little September castaway
I'm already gone

She's floating in acetone, covered in bruises and common colds
I'm already gone

Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls
Board up the house
Hide your boys and girls

Board up the house
Board up the house
Board up the house
Board up the house
Board up

Hide your boys...
Hide your girls...
Hide your..


12. Mtns. (The Crown & Anchor)

You're never awake
But you don't seem to sleep at all
Those stolen flowers inside your guts
Will take you away

Steady the hand that lays the child to bed
Barbitals and decay
The crown and the anchor

You'll curse at the sky
Three words for which the boys have no names
How many beasts in the night
To take you away

What quivers and shakes?
What fills your stomach and clogs your veins?
Whose claws do scratch at your wooden limbs?
And tear you away

Steady the hand that lays the child to bed
Barbitals and decay
The crown and the anchor

We will never sleep
We will never wake
We will drift away

We will never sleep
We will never wake
We will drift away


13. Foolsong

That fool who digs his own grave
I'm still trying to find my way out!
But if it's the long way
I'll sleep in this bed I've made

The kids have fallen on blades
It's too late to figure out
It's too late for babies to beg for their beds

It's too late to ignore the storm up ahead
It's too dark to see my way out
Now all I can do about anything wrong
Is dig further down
Further down

When we finally awake
We'll burn our bodies on stakes
A tower of ashes and sawdust will lie
Where our castles were made


14. Collapse

We are all soured milk
When we look in the mirror, we collapse
When our time has come
When our finger's on the trigger, we collapse

Arms are flailing
Swirling like the poison in the sink

Like the southern belle
Playing songs of horror
Like teeth amongst the grass

Like the bullet shell
Whistle and then I'll hum
Watch the good folks run

We are all rotten fruit
When the pipeline starts to flowing, we collapse
When our time has come
When the courtyard needs a lynching, we collapse

Arms are flailing
The devils' in the eye of every man

Water and the well
A Baptist and a baby
Were rolling in the weeds

Keep her spirit well
The tarpit daughter's father
Will lay her out to dry


15. Psalms Alive

I am the nail that you can't strike
I am the spear that will run you through

And when the shots were falling we were sound asleep
And you filled your palms with dirty bombs
Instead of hand grenades

I am teeth which cannot bite
I'll tear your garden up by the roots

And when the shots were falling we were sound asleep
And you filled your palms with dirty bombs
Instead of hand grenades

Hear the seven bells toll
Ringing loud for you
Coroners and vultures
Cry out, Gloria!

All across the valley
Onward towards the sun
The two-bit prophet sways and
Pull a piece from everyone

Feel the heavy hoof-beats
Pound across the land
The sin of our forefathers
Lies within our clutching hands

What the planes pass over
Hear it's call-to-arms
The golden drunk of morning
Made me striaight my bended knee

17. The Line Between

I turned my head up and the sky was empty
I wasn't looking for paradise
And when I asked for comfort from the land of plenty
I came to realize...

You have taken this for granted
Please don't take it all away

Feel the light of day, feel it fade away
Walk the line between the righteous and the wicked
And tomorrow I'll be gone

I thrust my hands in 'til the nerves went cold
I tasted silver and I tasted gold
And when the bandage lifted, our scars were newborn
We still felt everything

I have taken this for granted
Please don't take it all away

Feel the light of day, feel it fade away
Walk the line between the righteous and the wicked
And tomorrow I'll be gone

Feel the light of day, feel it fade away
Walk the line between the righteous and the wicked
And tomorrow I'll be gone
And tomorrow I'll be gone
