02 BOARD UP THE HOUSE

(4:33)

Take me away from the ocean
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

03 MTNS. (THE CROWN & ANCHOR)

(4:17)

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 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 dogs to rest
Barbitals and decay
The crown and 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

04 FOOLSONG

(2:58)

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

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

05 COLLAPSE

(3:52)

We are all soured milk
When we look in the mirror, we 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 a poison in the sink

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

Like the bullet shell
Whistle and 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 city needs a lynching, we collapse

Arms are flailing
The devil's 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 baby's father
Will lay her out to dry

06 PSALMS ALIVE

(4:09)

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
Onwards towards the sun
The two-bit prophet sways
And pulls a price from everyone

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

Watch the plane pass over
Hear its call to arms
The golden drunk of morning
Made me straight my bended knee

08 THE LINE BETWEEN

(5:02)

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 till the nerves all 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
