Track Name: Please Don't Leave Me Now
Please don't you leave me now.

You and me in a house upon a hill.
Looking down on everyone and saying that we could do better still.
You turned to me said tell me every sin in your life.
I told you my sins and sinned again
and saw the light go outa your eyes.

But please don't you leave me now.
Please don't leave me now.
Please don't leave me now
Please don't you leave me now.

I know I gotta wake up without you
I understand I gotta wake up without you
I know I gotta wake up without you.

Remember in the morning rain I kept you warm.
And in the evening rain I kept you dry.
It rained all the way until April.
We stayed inside until July.
Living so close you get lonely
Fucking so much you get unsatisfied.
I came to you for salvation
I came to you and got crucified.

But please don't leave me now.
Please don't leave me now.
Please don't you leave me now.
Please don't leave me now.

I know I gotta wake up without you.
I understand I gotta wake up without you.
I know I gotta wake up without you.
Track Name: Scream
Are you finished yet?
Are you finished yet?
Have you gotten all those bitter thoughts from of your head?
Have you cast enough curses on our bed?

Rain it down on me.
Throw it all on me.
Say I cheated and say I never loved you true.
Say that old cliche I took advantage of you.

I am man enough.
I am man enough.
To pay for the crimes of other men.
To pay for the crimes of other men.

But I can't go on pretending that I love you.
I can't pretend that we are souls entwined.
I love you like a sister not a lover.
One way or another I need a different type of life.

So if you want to scream,
come on and scream,
come on and scream at me like I am every man who did you wrong.

So come on and scream,
come on and scream,
scream at me for all I'm worth,
and when you finish screaming I'll be gone.


And I didn't do what you said
But I did enough.
And if it gets you out of bed
you can say I didn’t try enough.
You can mock every word that I ever said
you can burn all the poems that I wrote you.
I just want to leave you I don't want to hurt you.
I just want to leave you but I know that it hurts you

So Scream.
Come on and scream,
scream at me like I am every man who done you wrong.

So scream,
come on and scream,
scream at me and make it hurt so we can go our own ways limping on.
Track Name: Je Deteste
Je deteste je deteste I abhor you in your dress
making eyes like you have seen it all before.
Je deteste je deteste you pose well you say less
and leave them thinking that you could say more.

Little girls dressed in their Sunday best
they go to church and pray you see them in their dress.
Little girls oh how they do protest
and roll their eyes and pray you see their little blessings.
Little girls oh how they do confess
and when they do they whisper so they keep you guessing.
Little girls oh how they do know best
and when they do their worst you do a lot of regretting.

Je accuse je accuse you got no right to these blues
you sing well but you misplace the tune.
Je accuse je accuse you ain't nearly half as bruised
as the man you left for a boy you hardly knew.

Little girls dressed in their Sunday best
they go to church and pray you see them in their dress.
Little girls oh how they do protest
and roll their eyes and pray you see their little blessings.
Little girls oh how they do confess
and when they do they whisper so they keep you guessing.
Little girls oh how they do know best
and when they do their worst you do a lot of regretting.
Je deteste je deteste I have lived through enough wrecks
to excuse myself and kindly say goodbye.
Track Name: More Than Jesus
More than Jesus rises up at Easter.
More than Jesus rises in the spring.
Well Jesus died and came back alive and so has my tired dingaling.

And I loved you baby since I saw you.
I love to hear you when you come.
He may be my confessor, but you know me better,
let’s go upstairs and have some fun.

Jesus rises up at Easter.
Jesus rises in the spring.
Well Jesus died and came back alive and so has my tired dingaling.

We ain’t gonna live forever.
We ain’t rising when we die.
But you and me together is like heaven only wetter.
Let’s live it up while we’re alive.
Track Name: Wedding Bells
Wedding bells. You want wedding bells. You want wedding bells.
You want wedding bells.You want wedding bells. You want wedding bells.
You want wedding bells. You want wedding bells.

And when I see you and you're asleep
and you're asleep. And you're asleep and you're asleep.
I know you're dreaming.
I know you're dreaming. I know you're dreaming.
And it's not of me.

And when I see you
cross the street. Cross the street.
Cross the street. Cross the street.
I know you're leaving. I know you're leaving.
I know you're leaving I know you're leaving.
Leaving me for wedding bells. For wedding bells.
For wedding bells. Wedding bells.
You want wedding bells...

I can't forget. I can't forget I can't forget I can't forget
seeing you sleeping. Seeing you sleeping seeing you sleeping.
Seeing you sleeping.
Those wedding bells those wedding bells those wedding bells
those wedding bells
will they ever stop ringing well they ever stop ringing
will they ever stop ringing will they ever stop ringing.

That man you're with. He ain't worth a thing.
All he had was a ring. All he had was a ring. All he had was a ring.
But you wanted wedding bells. You wanted wedding bells.
You wanted wedding bells. You wanted wedding bells.
Don't you know that they're empty. That's why they sing.
That's why they sing. That's why they sing so loud.
Track Name: Kreppa Soup
Tighten your belt and lower your eyes.
If somebody said it would get better they lied.
There ain't no good can be done from crying.
Tighten your belt and lower your eyes.

Turn off the heat and put on a coat.
Get over your dreams and stay off the road.
The only dream you should be dreaming now
is to figure out how your gonna get old.
Turn off the heat and put on your coat.

All we got left is ourselves
and you ain't that smart and I am in poor health.
They said to save for a rainy day
but if you never had what can you put away?
All we got left is ourselves.

I'm a quarter the man that I thought I would be.
I want to provide for you cannot protect me.
Maybe the mighty have taken a fall
but the rest of us sure ain't having a ball.
I'm a quarter man that I thought I would be.
Track Name: We Could Never Be Friends
When I got money in my pocket feel a whole lot more relaxed.
When I got money in my pocket feel a whole lot more relaxed.
I can go down slowly by myself a cup of coffee
not have a heart attack.
Get myself a little whiskey, settle down easy, let my mind go black.

Yeah when I got money in my pocket feel a whole lot more relaxed.
When I got money in my pocket feel a whole lot more relaxed.
But when I throw down my money,
there's always some lonely bunny wants to get me off track.
They say they just want to please me, but they take up all my sweet time,
and man I want my sweet time back.

And I say you and me we could never be friends.
You and me we could never be friends.
You say you wanna be lovers and get beneath the covers and let the party begin.
Well I been to your parties.
The only truth at your parties.
Comes when the party ends.
Track Name: Crocodile
I got yellow teeth and I only got half a smile.
I got yellow teeth and I only got half a smile.
and I travel under this city like a crocodile.
I travel under this city like a flushed pet crocodile.

Do what you want won't bother me.
Do what you want won't bother me.
I got skin tough enough to protect me.
I got skin like a crocodile I don't even need to breath.

I can tell you who to fear and it ain't me.
I can tell you who to fear and it ain't me.
I'm an old fashioned hunter this is the 21st century.
I'm an old fashioned hunter and I only take what I need.

It is them folks up on the street.
It is them folks up on the street.
They take your money and say you got cake to eat.
They got skinny bellies can't be filled and rows and rows of
shiny white teeth.

I only got half a smile and yellow teeth.
I only got half a smile and yellow teeth.
I got two more stops until I can go to sleep.
And I will see my baby then return back to the deep.
Yeah I can see my baby then get dragged back to the deep.
Track Name: Cold Town
I'm from a cold cold cold town.
I'm from a cold cold cold town.
And I was born to let you down.
I'm from a cold cold cold town.

My parents made me in the cold month of December.
They got together trying to stay warm.
But soon enough the cold it took over.
And eight months later I was born.

I'm from a cold cold cold town.
I'm from a cold cold cold town.
And you should have known not to come around.
I'm from a cold cold cold town.

My friends and me we got ourselves to drinking.
We told ourselves that we were born to get out,
but we skipped the middle and went straight to the ending,
now my friends and me we are this town.

I'm from a cold cold cold town.
I'm from a cold cold cold town.
And you should know not to stick around.
I'm from a cold cold cold town.

When I met you I thought it was a blessing,
I called you an angel said that you took away my fear,
but I got more than a little of the devil in me,
and honey thank god that you got out of here.

I'm from a cold cold cold town.
And I was born to let you down.
I'm from a cold cold cold town.
Track Name: Northern Lights
And when I looked in your eyes they were pitch black.
You said a couple of things that you can't take back.
But if sky can serve as a metaphor,
that green above you is like your bedroom door,
that night you took me home before the fighting began.

And all I know is tonight beneath the northern lights
I wanna be yours tonight, be yours tonight, be yours tonight.

And if the streets are still frozen.
And if the truth that we know it comes undone.
And if our promises get broken.
Well we can look back and say that we did it right once.
