Track Name: Inside
Inside
Somedays we’re walking, somedays we’re talking
Lover my heart
Oh lover my heart
Oh you know, yeah you would know
You saw the lord
You saw the lord by the time they say
Time they say
When you know
Yeah you would know
Inside you would know
It all goes
Black birds are fighting
Yeah they’re fighting
A sign of the times
A sign of life
Yeah I know, yeah you would know
Can’t stop the turning
Can’t stop the turning
But I miss the walks
I miss the talks
I know, yeah I know
Track Name: Bad Nights
B a d N i g h t s
I had the wrong night, I got the wrong fight
I got it all when you came
You took me in to, you took me in to
I could be wasted, but you let me know you wanted to gun
I didn’t know when, I didn’t know that
I didn’t see you went out
I couldn’t come out, I couldn’t find out
I couldn’t open up to see what we had done
You sure look wasted, You sure defaced it
You saw them coming and you ran
I can’t believe it, you sure deceived them
You sure showed them that I was gonna come back in
Don’t know when, I took the pills and
Punched a face and run
I can’t lie about, I can’t lie about
I don’t remember what we did that dirty old night
I’ve had enough now
Track Name: Stalker
Stalker
And I am the one
For you
Could you be my love
But I
Wasn’t very good
At it
But I can always cut
You up
Dream about you
Every night
When I look inside
Your room
When I smell your clothes
At night
No, you don’t know
I’ve been watching you for so long now
You always miss, my tricks
Sooner or later I will get my kicks
Hey, I’m watching you
I’ll get you soon
I have always been
The kind
Of guy who does well
With other guys
So I see you come
Inside
You looking so fine
Fine
So I follow you
You don’t know
You don’t even know
Track Name: Down To The Bone
D o w n To T h e B o n e

I’ve come undone
My luck has run
15 bottles down, the world is spinning around
All the people are looking at me so strange
Another drink to get over her
Another stumble on the dance floor
And I’ll have another last one for the road
Leave me here, I got nothing going on
I’ve drunk it all, right down to the bone
25 bottles away, and no one understands what I say
My friends and lovers have all passed me by
The situation’s gotten so grim
I’m about at the fringe
Of a washed up man and a broken hearted drunk
Pour me another one
Track Name: Broken Scene
B r o k e n S c e n e
Come upon such a broken scene
That’s where your grace came in
You say some faith is all I need
For the light, the light, the light
My cracks didn’t shine they didn’t beam
All they seem to do is bleed
It must be some kind of bad disease
For the light, the light, the light
I got all of my pieces lined up for show
And I know that you know you can make me go
I just needed some grace just needed some time
For the show, the show, to finish my show
Like a monkey on a string
All your whims push and pull me
This must be some kind of crooked thing
For the light, the light, the light
Track Name: Room For You
R o o m F o r Yo u
I got love
Room for you
I got wed
Come to bed
Room for you
I got child
Lovely boy
Lovely girl
Room for you
I got bored
Get the saw
Get the sword
Room for you
I got room
I got room
I got enough room my heart to take you all to hell with me
Had no choice
Had no choice
The chewing in my brain was enough to make a man insane
Lord help me now help me now
Had to run
For what I done
What have I done?
Room for you
Told me to
It was you
What you made me do?
Room for you
Who are you?
Made me kill
Make me kill?
Room for you
I am bored
Help me lord
Room for you
So I run
Another one
Another son
Room for you
I hear them come
They’re on the hunt
Room for you
I am dead
I am dead
In my head
You’re in my head
Room for you
Track Name: Rag Doll
Rag Doll
Hello
Rag doll
Let’s go
My rag doll
Drag you all over town
Nobody wants to see you frown
You’ve never known anything else
My rag doll
Pull
The leash
Let’s try
To keep the peace
Bodies all in the street
But the stars up above are so sweet
And keeps the heads in the sand
My rag doll
It’s so low
My rag doll
Track Name: Call Me When You Do
C a l l M e W h e n Yo u D o
Oh my Lord, oh good gracious we’ve hit all new lows
All our time trying to get it right, it has all come to blows
I don’t know what were doing, I don’t know what has gone wrong
When you find out, I’m sure you’ll tell me it’s me all along
Call me when you do, when you do
When the shit comes down, it all comes down to you
All them digs and all them nasty jibes have made us run dry
I forgot how to tell you how you make me feel when we’re alright
Oh no no there aint no cure for a women whose been scorn
If you could tell me how to make it right, I’d get on the phone
Track Name: Light Of Day
Light Of Day
I saw Grace, I saw Grace today
You took mine, you took mine away
It aint right, it aint right, what you do
To make me, to make me choose
All by the light of day
Soon they will, soon they will see
I was right, I was right, she was so mean
Come back soon, come back soon my Grace
Shove it all, shove it all in my face
Nobody cares for me
As much as they have said
But I’d rather end up dead
Because nobody cares for me
Track Name: A Preacher's Organ
A P r e a c h e r ’ s O r g a n
Out into the darkness, not broken not lifeless, am I now losing my mind
Row in this boat, the black robe and this musical box will show them my find
Only 34 and I’ve lost so much more, but this old box has kept me alive
Yield my calling, that great falling, and all my grace has run dry
And so we just play
Forsake the last day
And we sing and we sing and we sing and we sing
And we row and we row and we row and we row
Into the fire, I would rather go than to have a life away from her love
When I saw her, I knew that I was giving up everything for the sight of her waltz
Taken with the sounds of a musical box, I could just watch her dance through the night
At that moment I knew that this little black book and this robe is nothing but loss
And so dear brothers, leave me here in this darkness, leave me here with the lost
No great commission, no joyous redemption, I no longer trust in your god
Track Name: Come By Grace
Come By Grace
Come by grace, come by grace
I’ve seen enough, I’ve seen enough
To know that this, to know that this is it
Soon they will, soon they will
Come by me and they will see
I’m broken down, broken down again
They will feast, they will feast
On my loss, at my cost
Give me life, give me love oh grace.
Come by grace, come on grace
Not much time, not much time
Before they come, before they come
And dine
Oh I saw, oh I saw
Not the lord, not the lord
But all is dark, all is dark oh grace
Wait it out, wait it out
See it now, see it now
I’ve been fooled, I’ve been fooled by grace
Track Name: Been All Around This World
Been All Around This World (trad.)
Hang me, oh, hang me, so I’ll be dead and gone
Hang me, oh, hang me, so I’ll be dead and gone
I wouldn’t mind your hanging, boys but you wait in jail so long
Oh Lord, I been all around this world
Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I’ll take my stand
Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I’ll take my stand
A rifle on my shoulder, six-shooter in my hand
Oh Lord, I been all around this world
Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door
Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door
Before I have to walk in with my old ‘forty-four’
Oh Lord, I been all around this world
Mama and Papa, little sister makes three
Mama and Papa, little sister makes three
They’re coming in the morning, that’s the last you’ll see of me
Oh Lord, I been all around this world
