It Wasn't Easy

They spent their time
Dealing with their hand
Then came the day
When they had to go away
Well it wasn't easy
To decide who should go
But it wasn't hard
To get up on that road

Get up on the road

The ride was long
The dusk about to begin
Then came the time
When they had to settle in
It wasn't easy
To stay in one place
But it wasn't hard
To look back alone

Look back alone

First it was East
And then it was West
Neither of them knowing
Which way was best
It wasn't easy
To stay ahead of the line
But it wasn't hard
To get lost in time

Get lost in time

From this lonely life
I have found
Wash it away today

The Devil Got His Job 1

The Devil got his job
And I got mine
One day we're gonna meet
At the end of the line

Upstairs Downstairs

They didn't talk too much
It was just too hard
And the cops don't care enough
If you're honest or scared
The flowers you recieved
Never did bloom
If I go upstairs
Will I find your room

My time is overdo
It's hard to get to the truth
The dream occured to me
At half its chosen time
Take out the trash
Just to give it up
I'll lose my place in time
As the sun fades

I was on an endless ride
Begin at the top
Stick with a glimmer of hope
Just to live it up

Proceed With Caution

I don't sleep while you're around
Proceed with caution
Or so I've found

In your eyes
I'm seem very old
Believe my sentence
It's quite amusing and bold

We all created stories about her
They all added a little lie to it


I don't eat while you're in town
Proceed with caution
Or so I've found

In your lies
I get very old
Believe my sentence
It's somewhat untold

We all created stories about her
They all added a little lie to it

War Of The Rebellion (1861)

They call themselves rebels
In a time of war
And by such deeds

Will kill once more
Our fathers our patriots
They stand by thier names
We have no reason
To stray from the grave
When we have died
And gone off to sleep
We pray for our country
To go on in peace

Friendless Friend 1

Friendless
Friendless friend
Would like to be here
Until the end

It's got to be
One of the worst
Nights we've had

I Like The Way Yuo Comb Your Hair 1

I like the way you comb your hair
I like the way it falls down there
You don't have to ask me twice
You never listen to my advice

I like the way you leave the room
I'll watch you all alone
You don't have to ask me twice
You never listen to my advice

Dancing With The Devil

Sixty minutes in a holding cell
She asks, "Are we in Hell?"
I guess it could be wore than that
To be in the cold flat on your back
Well it takes time to realize
That we live outside the flow of time
And when the dark comes over me
I'll already be there waiting in line

Dancing with the devil
On a moonlit night

As he walks through my dreams
Crazy as that might seem
Have you ever felt caught in life
In the middle of a frozen stream
In hotel bars with washed up stars
He talks trash with a spanish guitar
She can't get going in the morning
He can't stop his past from catching up

Dancing with the devil
On a moonlit night

So of the few things I think I know
What's clear is the pain of fear
So I'm going where life don't mean so much
Down below the conscious flow
And like an old train on the wrong side
Look at the canyon, the world is on it's side

Dancing with the devil
On a moonlit night

Ain't No Sin

She haunts me even at mid-day
Pale grey rose won't go away
Endless singing in that lying way
Even after the pain has gone away

Goodbye goodbye
It ain't no sin

After a long day red hands of pain
The stench will not be washed away
They pull the curtains and the fingers all away
Now the ghosts are gone and I'm on my way

A better night a better day
Gone are the hours of my soul as prey
Long last forever are the times before
When I was about to be alone once more

Don't Care

I burned at the top
Never really knew what it was for
You led yourself to the end
Laid yourself right down beside my door

It's all over now
Do you even care

You gave up the most
All you really wanted was your own
You led yourself to the end
Never really wanting anymore

It's all over now
Do you even care

I burned at the top
Never really knew what it was for
You led yourself to the end
Laid yourself right down beside my door

It's all over now

My Empty Room

See the lights go down in
My empty room
See the words fall out in
The empty tune
You try to sing to me
I don't believe it

The words are wrong

Heavy Bull Whip

Crazy as it seems
She got the heavy bull whip
I'm burstin at the seams
From the heavy bull whip
She said my nightmares are dreams
It's so obscene
Heavy bull whip

Black sheep black
Oh go man go
You got to get up off my back
If you wanna roll roll roll
The taste of wine
So damn fine
From the heavy bull whip

Well as crazy as it seems
She got the heavy bull whip
I'm burstin at the seams
From the heavy bull whip
Well my nightmares are dreams
Or so it seems
From the heavy bull whip

Yeah alright

Heavy bull whip

Jesus don't you love me
Do you know my name
Do you love me

Do you know my name
Do you love me
Do you know my name
