Brush away all my wrongs In a way we can fall To whom? Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my You've come this way to satisfy Heads and hands and diamond eyes But in the morning I'll be gone Just like the setting sun to sleep alone Deliverance, deliver me tonight, pick up these ears of mine From the hallowed halls of time give to me a sign That what we've done is right In the waning light come over These chords begin on this night that never ends And these strains, these strains that strain to fill our heads Come over

Turn those eyes around There'll be no lines, no lines 'cross this town Dream by dream this ending We can be my, be my final page Please come back, we'll know Roll these windows down We can flee now, run this city around Street by street, away Watch it fade out, played out, get mislaid Please come back, we'll know the last The door man can pretend to know my name, my past But no man can portend the nightmares We'll buy more time, safety's safer over here Take this small fry, shake his enemies full of fear Please come back, we'll know the last Once this tape shapes our escape There'll be no more chance to betray Trust my embrace, you will know

Are you sleepy? Sleep, sleep, sleep When the world wakes up where are you? Are you laughing? Sleep, sleep, sleep Leave it up to you. It's fifteen hours away Fifteen hours 'til fate Snaps out of the trance that you could call awake. Relax and relax and relax that face, there's nothing shocking to you I can throw that shade, we can hide love behind grenades Chalk it up to the way the boredom's grabbing all our fame And what you can't pump in your veins stays the same. What a waste of a perfectly good embrace And I can smell it in the latex that invades your space It's killing in the lone star sockets and the blue collar pockets of the last man left in this place You know he ain't got a clue that he's the raddest and the baddest motherfucker Who wants to come around and teach some respect, and come correct Go low, go broke if you wanna be a big shot, go home It can feel like a long night It can feel like nothing at all if your eyes are closed tight Don't hear it at all if you're zipped up behind you're break-up All these lonely souls go turn to stone We've stocked cough drops, cigarettes, and lollipops And I can see your blood pressure drop Keep talking about the cool highs and low-fi, and all your friends living in cities with the drive-by The power, the glory, the contempt is yours all night When the lance hits you in your side, you'll bleed with pride Those lonely eyes couldn't be surprised by another lover Sitting on the head of the fates around the night On these lonely nights wouldn't it feel better to feel something better? Go low, go broke if you wanna be a big shot, go home It can feel like a long night It can feel like nothing at all if your eyes are closed tight Don't hear it at all if you're zipped up behind you're break-up All these lonely souls go turn to stone

Lay down next to me I’m gunna lay down, I’m gunna lay down right next to you We’re gunna slow down, feel that ground and grow those roots Souls rise, keep it up inside Told me she was seventeen when she got raped in Bowling Green, leave it alone now Just a mall rat spoiled brat but daddy was a bureaucrat Flipped that baby sent it back so we gave him a heart attack Those fat stacks and tailored slacks pack facts of death tax and sexual traps So we took a bat and made his fat fall flat, you see we’re good at that Seal it up with a Roman kiss and I’ll wait for it to touch my lips Don’t keep me waiting too long Did you expect another sloppy tryst or did you re-enlist when we first kissed Don’t keep me waiting too long I feel the love of the Lord the moment we lay down, don’t keep me waiting No point in hiding we’re falling, we're falling for you. Erika, what you've been through Couldn't be, couldn't see those awful dreams that come true. Leave a list for the oldest to get what you might want from us unless it’s us that you want to discuss. You’re blameless, not shameless, Cover up your sins and we’ll explore the space where both our bodies end Seal it up with a Roman kiss and I’ll wait for it to touch my lips Don’t keep me waiting too long Did you expect another sloppy tryst or did you re-enlist when we first kissed Don’t keep me waiting too long I feel the love of the Lord the moment we lay down, don’t keep me waiting

That boy, he wants to go alone And he'll realize what a fool he's made himself. We can sit among the apple trees and let the breeze heal our hearts. No other gods. I wanna take you to a place where we know what it is We can can talk all night about changing the stars. If you want these games to end come away with me. You will be with friends all your life.

Don't think we don't know everything about everyone. Caught on the couch with a bottle and a best friend You cannot hide from us, but is it so bad? Nobody knows how long you've been sober from overexposure To the pace, the tone, the smut of love songs. Send no money, send just the broken parts We can stop the pain or stop the heart. Ain't got no mind of it to keep girls like you from him. He's got plans. Like gods, we've got worlds to explore. Don't refuse. Send no money, send just the broken parts We can stop the pain or stop the heart. Time to come cold, wipe your sins away So many came to scream your sobriquet and grab the open floor. Send no money, send just the broken parts We can stop the pain or stop the heart.

Erika, we've been looking everywhere for you now Erika When you come back home will you be wearing this bomb? Will you be willing to pretend? That your engine don't mind, That your veins ain't full of bromide, That you don't mind the second time. Erika, was it your mind you lost at home? Do you need another, another When we talk alone we will be sharing this throne And don't forget that where you're from is the last one. That you ain't been satisfied, That your love ain't been amplified That you don't mind the seventh time. Erika, was it your mind you lost at home? Do you need another, another? We've been casting rays, catching strays with this gaze And when I catch her then she stays Lord knows that when I get her back home That the power of the Lord almighty can cut out this sick society Fill it in with holy thoughts and she can be with us Erika, we've been looking everywhere for you now Do you know if the others tried to hide it? Erika, was it your mind you lost at home? Do you need another, another? Erika will you be fine alone? Do I need to lock that door, Erika?

Take that rage, pack it with razor blades and blow it up all over his face. Seek that boy, crush him with all your force and leave him standing over the ashes that have been left over from the storm. Because you have been reborn. Been leaving a signature on these genes Although he keeps well alone Could try to tie you up with all of his lies. He gives the signal and you're gone. Loot him, rob him, go back and throttle him. Pick up the pieces so you can dangle brass tacks About the low-rise surprise. Street-walking uptight painted lady of the night. She said "I'll come back for more" Walked right through that open. Soiled sheets and record sleeves are the company he keeps. We can stop him where he sleeps. It wasn't like, it wasn't like he was lonely. 'Cause he wasn't alone in the night, alone in the night for long. It's out of love, it's out of love, he's out of love from where we're standing We've got a family now, we've taken a vow And we can cross him out, and drag the plow Over fields of ash, of ash spread on his grave. We've got many ways, dossiers and Cabernets To bring your boyfriend to his knees and reappraise We can be explicit, hold tight to his missus. Settle all your business we'll make sure he's sold It wasn't like, it wasn't like he was lonely. 'Cause he wasn't alone in the night, alone in the night for long. It's out of love, it's out of love, he's out of love from where we're standing But you told me how the lonely could be saved I've seen the sinister go straight Seen the evil take their fate I've seen the mighty fall and they will wear that shawl. Forgive this, this sullen waste. We'll put the devil in his place. It wasn't like, it wasn't like he was lonely. 'Cause he wasn't alone in the night, alone in the night for long. It's out of love, it's out of love, he's out of love from where we're standing We've got a family now, we've taken a vow And we can cross him out, and drag the plow Over fields of ash, of ash spread on his grave.

If you're cold, then grab my soul Grab my soul and don't lose control. If you're cold, then let me hold Let me hold you close, the wind it blows and blows. If you're cold, then feel my soul Feel my soul, it burns, it spurns, it turns the world. It's been hard, it's been cold, it's been awful alone. It's over today, offer a way to come home. Silhouettes on my breast have climbed there alone. Through my bones. If you're cold, then grab my soul Grab my soul and don't lose control. If you're cold, then feel my soul Feel my soul, it burns, it spurns, it turns the world.

You picked a funny time to betray, and you will pay. We've all heard what you've got say, and you will pay. On the floor you're nowhere, because a man can't fight his own soldier Take a trip to the edge of the down And drag a bottle around until you find that old man Spread on the ground with a gun in his mouth And the eyes of a mouse and a tremble in his blouse That he fucked the wrong man And we grow tired of the old plans. Sit down old man. You wanna believe what a brother says? I believe in the will of a man That he will say what can When the time is right he'll drop to his hands And he'll late out plan and he'll pick up the scum But we know what's best for old man And you will pay, old man.

I said I'm gunna throw you away 'Cause if you're gunna run you should pay. We've been trying all this time to clean out the dirt from your mind. A single cell can jump-start decay. A single cell can bring down the day. You think because you're kind you'll be saved? I'm never gunna let you get away. And he won't be the last to lose the way. So darling take notes and be afraid. The sun will come and he'll be done. Poor man, broken, put your face on display. Regret that bet, who you gambled with today. And you will pay. Scratch that name up on the line, It's already known that we don't have the time To be sheltering every Judas in our midst And we'll be wandering aimlessly Until we reckon with your wandering eyes. A single cell can jump-start decay. A single cell can bring down the day.

He's laid in the shadows outside the broken path. In the shade of the oak tree under the blades of grass. His eyes smell of honey, rich with a comb of wax. The hum like a cancer growing from the blast. It's hard to say if I'll be good enough today, Avoid his fate. We can't take back what we did, what we buried there away under the tree. And if it means that I'm unfaithful to the cause, then I'm unfaithful to the cause. He can't run, and we can't run and he can't hide, 'cause what he did is on our mind And you will pay for your mistakes. I'll run... You will pay for your mistakes.
