Track Name: Sea Beast
As I lay my head to rest
I encounter everything in my past
do I mend or avoid broken glass?
or stumble in the dark and cut all in my path?
Your faith is strong
as it seems to rectify what's done and gone
and the light shining through the doorway
illuminates us all, cast shadows on God.

Someone anyone there?
to awaken and slaughter the beast
all of you here must have drank up the mountains
and swallowed the sea

oh my friends they are so confused
all the insects come near in the night
and the glow that your lies give off
is the light that plays tricks on even your eyes
I heard from a man who i'm dying to meet
that the only way to heaven is admitting defeat
the good lord don't care who you've been
just keep those dirty little arms of yours clean


and as for me
oh oh oh
and as for me babe
the ocean's too wide and I am just too small

Track Name: World Illuminated
There's a hole on my tongue
where the vividest dreams
open up to the heavens
and bring God to my feet
there's a hole on my heart
tells the darkness we're here
and the darkness she weeps
she's screaming back at me yeah

if it's fear
that motivates you
cry all night alone
and the pain
floating down
on the riverbed
is pulling us away from shore

and the blankets are pulled over the windows
the walls are red
and the voices calling you baby are only in your head
and this hole on my heart
tells the darkness we're here
and the darkness she weeps
she's screaming, beckoning


and when the stars align
the world illuminated
Track Name: Tel Aviv
was on a dark cool night
the riders took up their arms
riders got on their horses
and rode off towards the dawn
and they will run
and they will hide
they'll ride into the night

with a black and white cross
painted onto their shields
the very image of God
burns across gold fields
and they will run
they will hide
they'll ride into the night

and they will run
and they will hide
they'll ride ride ride ride into the night

I know a thing or two
I know you're wrong
they don't look like I look
they don't talk like I talk
and it's all your fault

Track Name: Rock Hard City
My leg's been shaking
for thirty days straight
ain't slept in weeks
my whole body aches
i walk around this town
like I've got something to say
I wash my body clean in the sink
but this feeling won't go away go away

I could use some time
away from this rock of mine
this rock is heavy, upon the hill I climb

We're rock hard city
you know we're coming through the back door
back door baby
we're dirty money
keep you begging for more

My palms are clammed up
can't hold my fingers still
the pull of whiskey now and cigarettes girl
are all that I can smell
I've got some money now oh oh
someone that I can use
hangman walking towards me
dressed in black and singing the blues
singing the blues

Track Name: Blue Light
Glitter on the floor tonight honey
four inch heels so high honey
no mini-skirt required honey
what would it take to take your soul tonight ?
Cause I lost my soul to rock and roll
rolling stones and better bones
rolling down on me

and I woke up this morning
ain't got no soul left to salvage
i've been bruised and broken
by that blue light

Lost my soul
to rock and roll
rolling stones and better bones
rolling down on me.
Track Name: Hot Boyz
as night falls damp on the dusty town
a tall cool stranger he enters the bar oh yeah
he puts on a show, drinks heavy beer
finds himself a lovely woman with such lovely hair oh yeah
you know what i'm talking about baby
he said tonight we're gonna drink until the Mississippi river's dry

Turn me on
suck me dry like the desert sun
burn me down
you're hot as hell

small town girls never seen this man
he smells of spices from a distant land oh yeah
he smells like the finest whiskey
he said tonight we're gonna drink until the California coast is dry
we're gonna play you something baby, lets move those little ass cheeks side to side

turn me on
suck me dry like the desert sun
burn me down you're a brick house
you're hot as hell
Track Name: Holy Communion
saw her walking by
wearing short skirt and heels
remember when those legs were up
up behind my ears
and I can't say i miss you
but Jesus you look fine
it's like holy communion
when all you need is wine

you haven't noticed
the bottles made of glass
i'm on the outside now
beautiful at last
this vessel's full now
the mast is catching wind
about to carry me out
to the edge of the sea

it's not like we're running but there's desire for speed
i could swear we were sinking when the air hit my wings
we sail at dawn
no looking back now, bring the horizon

and drink up
you'll never give a dime for a drink
and drink up
you need something to break down deep
cause in three days we sail
never to return again
ready the guns and we'll meet at the depths

oh never let a woman in
and hold hear heart in your hands
take what you can boys
because the feeling is temporary
the moon is rising
the water barrels down down down
the current pulling out
you're pulling out your heart and soul for her now
Track Name: Mother's Love (Shine Like Gold)
There was a song I'd wear
bright as moon's despair
littered stars upon the wicked in the homes of men
flowers colors fair
the smell of woman's breath
sweet as summer's warmth and mother's love for sons she'd bear

As I lay above the edge
feel the breeze caress my cares
and falling down
falling further
I let my weary eyes close
and open up again

Shine like gold

the planets age like wine
they govern space and time
only love the broken till she gave up all that shined
her watch and pocket book
records tapes and ring
made him light up like the sun till it was blinding

shine like gold
like I'm cheated, wasted
cheated, wasted on love
Track Name: Moonshine
beneath a moonlit sky
I shake the shadows off
they fall away
like tears from your lover's arms

so claim what's yours in this kingdom
and take what you've been given
the wine here will cure you
the bread erases sin oh
