Track Name: Housefires
My heart is a housefire and a threat to set the block alight/
It's burning through the borders of city collecting street signs/
It's scorching all the trees and jumping roof-to-roof of the buildings/
In the middle of the pyre white light, white light, white light

It's all right to give up sometimes, it's all right/
But if we go, down by the waters edge, we could just float/
If we drop

I'm not looking for a personal savior, I'm just looking for a witness/
And if you knew me five years ago, you know I've grown strange/
Would you recognize me, would I even know who you are dear?/
Would you go to the stars trying to forget my name?

It's all right to give up sometimes, it's all right/
But if we go, down by the waters edge, we could just float/
If we drop

It's all right to give up sometimes, it's all right/
But if we go, down by the waters edge, we could just float/
If we drop
Track Name: Golden Youth
Devils may come devils may go/
Everyone gets younger, everyone get cased in gold/
In the winter you'll find your one true lover/
You'll shrug them off when it get warm to find another

O you know, of the danger/ O you know, of the danger/
But it feels right to you/ But it feels right to you/
But it feels right to you

The wilderness can be unforgiving/
You hide in a cave just to stay safe, but end up there living/
And the wolves outside have sharpened up their claws/
Trying to entice you out with calls from your Ma and Pa

O you know, of the danger/ O you know, of the danger/
But it feels right to you/ But it feels right to you/
But it feels right to you

O you know, of the danger/ O you know, of the danger/
But it feels right to you/ But it feels right to you/
But it feels right to you/ But it feels right to you
Track Name: Day of the Dead
I'll be crawling to my mistress on the day of the dead/
She keeps talking about the future like it's already writ

And for someone who claims they know everything/
She don't know me at all/
She's gotta figure it out

She calls me up at night on my telephone/
To make sure that I'm in my bed and all alone

And for someone who claims they know everything/
She don't know me at all/
She's gotta figure it out

I keep all of my secrets/
I'll bottle them until I'm gone/
Am I alive?/ Set me up and watch me fall

I keep all of my secrets/
I'll bottle them until I'm gone/
Am I alive?/ Set me up and watch me fall/
Am I alive?/ Shoot me with a cannonball, please

And for someone who claims they know everything/
She don't know me at all/
She's gotta figure it out
Track Name: Dread Fearsome
O, if I were a god I'd be a dread fearsome god/
A three-piece suit, tarot in my pocket/
A sterling watch marks five minutes to midnight

O, and if I were a god I'd rampage across the globe/
But if she called me home you know I would go/
Hold her in my arms until the world died

Thinking of all the things I'd do/
To spend a little more time with you/
I'd do so much better than the lover you got/
I'd take you from them

I want to run through the streets just to shout your name/
Not as a curse, something less vain/
I want to take you to the farm that I grew up on

O, and when I hear her voice I start to vibrate and then/
I could walk through the walls if my molecules would stay thin/
Her heart, her eyes, her touch all burnt to memory

Thinking of all the things I'd do/
To spend a little more time with you/
I'd do so much better than the lover you got/
I'd take you from them

Thinking of all the things I'd do/
To spend a little more time with you/
I'd do so much better than the lover you got/
I'd take you from them
Track Name: Sundowners
Sundowners, they have no eyes/
At least they don't see you in the dance hall/
Their mothers would like you to much

Sundowners, they are so vain/
They shine litter glitter but they taste like wine/
They are self professed monsters, monsters

Stephanie used to be a saint/
At lease she'd hold me in the twilight/
Then she started staying out later, later

I wracked my mind trying to perceive/
Exactly what had change in her eyes/
Then she told me with great ease

It's not easy/
Holding onto something that you know you can't understand/
It's not easy/
Avoiding who you are just so you can say you stayed the same

My skull mask falls from my head/
I don't want to wear it anymore/
I feel childish, I feel dumb

I see her around, every once and a bit/
Grinding on the floor with some stranger/
Sundowners, they gotta have their fun (so it goes)

It's not easy/
Holding onto something that you know you can't understand/
It's not easy/
Avoiding who you are just so you can say you stayed the same
Track Name: Saint Led Astray
Is it true that we were children in the daylight/
And when night came we turned to animals in our heads?
Do you think that creatures get more frisky/
When winter dies and spring rolls out of bed?

I don't know/ all the answers/
And it's good to have a mystery to your life/
I'm so glad to cam into mine/
And had a good time sometimes/

Is it weird that in a past life I was a saint/
Led astray by a woman who made the earth quake?
Is it strange that every road I go down now/
Makes me think of us staying out til all hours?

I don't know/ all the answers/
And it's good to have a mystery to your life/
I'm so glad to cam into mine/
And had a good time sometimes/

And had a good time sometimes/
And had a good time sometimes/
And had a good time sometimes/
And had a good time sometimes/
Track Name: Greed
We had heart/ we had a home
We had all we ever needed/ but we wanted more
We bottled lightning/ we sold it cheap
We owe our souls to the devil/ for our greed

And we were/ we were...

We let our demons/ off their chains
They went out into the world/ and drove all our friends deranged
And if your blue eyes/ fall from me
You know I'll disappear/ I'm something less than a mystery

And we were/ we were
We were dry/ we were dry

All we are are unburdened scars
And all we left behind us were abandoned cars
Is it evil to now follow a path?
I got my name on a list somewhere and I can't help but laugh

We had heart/ we had a home
We had all we ever needed/ but we wanted more
We bottled lightning/ we sold it cheap
We owe our souls to the devil/ for our greed

And we were/ we were
We were dry/ we were dry
