Backslider

Bended knee,

Nine years old,

Waiting for,

Just one word!


I was thinking of all the things,

My daddy told me of,

Sin and salvation and

Manhood and dignity


All that time,

In the dark,

Just one word,

Backslider!


I remember the day I stepped,

Into the water

My daddy held me in his hands

And pushed my head under,

And said


Son I am,

So proud,

Just one word,

Backslider!


Well I opened my eyes up wide

Daddy held me in his hands

I looked up through the water

And thought I saw Jesus, and then


Well I threw up my hands!

And I heard, Amen!

And I prayed sweet Jesus,

Don't let me become a backslider!


Possum Kingdom

Make up your mind

Decide to walk with me

Around the lake tonight

Around the lake tonight

By my side

By my side


I'm not gonna' lie

I'll not be a gentleman

Behind the boathouse

I'll show you my dark secret


I'm not gonna lie

I want you for mine

My blushing bride

My lover, be my lover yeah...


Don't be afraid

I didn't mean to scare you

So help me Jesus


I can promise you

You will stay as beautiful

With dark hair

And soft skin, forever

Forever


Make up your mind

Make up your mind

And I promise you

I will treat you well

My sweet angel

So help me Jesus


Give it up to me

Give it up to me

Do you wanna be

My angel?

So help me!


Be my angel

Be my angel


Do you wanna die?


I promise you

I will treat you well

My sweet angel

So help me, Jesus

Jesus

Jesus

Jesus


Quitter

Didn't I give you everything?

Didn't I take you where you want to be?

Didn't I make you feel just like a queen?

And all that time I thought that I was gettin' somethin' right


Look me in the eye and tell me somethin'

Am I supposed to walk away with nothin'?

Do I convince myself we never happened?

Well I guess I won't be denied

I'm gettin' somethin' right


Lover!

Are you happy now?

Quitter...QUITTER!


In the coming days the dust will cover

All the evidence of your first lover

I hope wherever you are now you'll wake up

And see just what a mess you made of this

'Cause I'm gettin' somethin' right


Am I gettin' somethin' right?


Lover!

Are you happy now?

Quitter...QUITTER!


Away

You say forever

And I confess I shiver

You say hope

I say that's where I'm goin'


To be in the shade

The oldest trees above my head

When I'm away, I know in my heart

There is a heaven


If I'm out hunting

Come right on in, yeah

And even when I'm gone

My doors are always open


And if I'm asleep

Make sure my blanket covers me, yeah


When I'm away, I know in my heart

There is a heaven


When i'm away

To be in the shade

The oldest trees above my head

When I'm away, I know in my heart

There is a heaven


come right on in, yeah


I come From the Water

I come from the water

I crawled upon the shore

I left my brothers there

I got what I came for


I sucked that hot air in

And rolled upon the sand

Emerged beneath the sun

To be a man.


I come from the water


I come from the water

That weren't no easy thing

It's more than nature

It's like my destiny


I stood upon these legs

And held my head up high

Emerged beneath the sun

To start a new life


I come from the water


Life in the desert

Just to be together

The sand forever

The same forever

It moves beneath me

It pulls my body

My pulse beats hotter

So far from the water


I love to see the sun

In spite of all it's done

I pray for shade and rain

I pray to live again

I come from the water


Tyler

And she runs through her days with a smile on her face

And she runs, and she waits, and I wait


We can drive to anyplace, day or night, across the state

And in the morning, into Mexico, we will wake up


I find a window in the kitchen, and I let myself in

Rummage through the refrigerator, find myself a beer

I can't believe I'm really here, and she's lying in that bed

I can almost feel her touch, and her anxious breath!


I stumble in the hallway, outside her bedroom door

I hear her call out to me, I hear the fear in her voice

She pulls the covers tighter, I press against the door


I will be with her tonight


Happyface

I tried to wish you away

I'll do more than wishin' someday

No no no more son of a b****

No no no more wishin'

No no no more son of a b****

No more happyface!


You and I have nothing more to say

We'll do more than talkin' someday

No no no more son of a b****

No no no more talkin'

No no no more son of a b****

No more happyface!


No no no more son of a b****

No no no more talkin'

No no no more son of a b****

No more happyface


If I

could find

the will

to KILL!

Here we go again


No no no more son of a b****

No no no no more son of a b****

No no no more son of a b****

No more happy face


If I

Could find

the will

to KILL

Well, I'll kill you son of a b****!


Velvet

Get away!

Get away!


You hurt me, you f***!

You hurt me, you f***!

You hurt me, you f***!

You hurt me!


Stop it!

Stop it!


You hurt me, you c***!

You hurt me, you c***!

You hurt me, you c***!

You hurt me!


C***

ooh


Mommy

Mommy

ooh


Mother

Father

Mother

Father


Get away!

Get away!


You hurt me, you f***!

You hurt me, you f***!

You hurt me!


I Burn

Driftin' upward

Gently liftin'

Lazy on the wind


Rollin' over

Turnin' slowly

Beginning and the end


Fire is bright

Fire is clean

Never so alive


Smoke is freedom

Flame is mercy

I am free tonight


And I burn

I burn


Stoke the embers

Cleanse the spirit

A prayer in every spark


Feel the lick of

Bad religion

The finish and the start


In the beginning

We were smarter

The flame was heaven-sent


Through the ages

We got stupid

Now we must repent


And I burn

I burn


Sift the ashes

Full reminder

Stony things remain


Tooth and bone

unimpressive

I have left these things


Because fire is bright

Fire is clean

Efficient and divine


Tooth and bone

Charms and dolls

I am free tonight


I burn!

The air!

You breathe!


I burn!

The air!

You breathe!


I burn!

The air!

You breathe!


I burn

I burn

I burn
