Original Release

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

Tylor Durand: Vocal / Electric guitar / Acoustic guitar / Drums / Maracas

The Devil Got His Job

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

If It Weren't For Jesus

If it weren't for Jesus
I wouldn't be here today
If it weren't for the Lord
The darkness wouldn't go away

The next time I see the Lord
I'll give him the good news
Tell him his word
Has been put to good use

Well I got no complaints
I got nothing to say
If he's coming
I hope he comes my way

The next time I see the Lord
I'll give him the good news
Tell him his word
Has been put to good use

From the night sky
He'll be fallin down
I'll be there waiting
On the dark side of town

Hey Jesus
Save a place for me
If yer gonna free us
How long before you get to me?

Gonna Paint Your Name

Gonna paint your name
Across the sky
Maybe someday
You'll walk on by

Come to me

I'll travel far
And wide
To get a sense
Of your dark side

Come to me

Gonna pick your name
Out of a hat
Maybe someday
I'll get lucky with that

The Town Is Closed Down

I came home at dawn
With the leaves in my hair
The bones at my side
And the blankets in the air

The stones have been thrown
And the guests have all gone
The wine has been drank
And we settled at the throne

The town has closed down

I can't see too well
And I'm no good no more
The door is shut
And Arkansas is gone

The town has closed down

The backs are all turned round
And the Sun is going down
The Moon is rising up
And the town has closed down

The town has closed down

Mark Shepherd: Bass / Banjo
Recorded: 5/4/96 to 5/11/96

Georgia Red Clay

Georgia red clay
You've seen better days
Somewhere you broke down and got lost

In my broken sleep
I thought I heard you speak
Or was it just the shadows calling me

Tried and true you'll find
Is just a waste of time
You can never buy back what you have lost

Georgia red clay
You've seen better days
Somewhere you broke down and got lost

In my broken sleep
I thought I heard you speak
Or was it just the shadows calling me

Train, Train, Train

Train, train, train you know the way
Take me to him and don't delay
If I've sinned I know it's alright
He likes his friends as dark as nigt

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I hear he lives behind the moon
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
He's got my soul and I need it soon

Goin down at full speed
Get out of my way if you please
If he's home I hope he lets me in
We got a deal it's about to begin
Through the dark through the light
I'm hoping to find the other side

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I got a plan take me to his room
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I need his advice to get me through

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I hear he lives behind the moon
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
He's got my soul and I need it soon

Livin' like this ain't very hard
Just call out his name and quit your job
Like the moon in the light
The Devil's hard to reach at night

I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
I hear he lives behind the moon
I'm hoping to find the Devil soon
He's got my soul and I need it soon

Yer Love

If I'm falling down beside you
Will you pick me up
If I tell you what I'm thinking
Would that be enough

If I had too muchthis evening
Would you still drink me up
And if I don't know what's coming
Would that be enough

Will you still be my love

And if I don't come home till morning
Will you still give me yer love
If I talk too much this morning
Will it be enough
If I don't know all the answers
Will you be spoiling me yer love

I want you for my love

If I'm falling down beside you
Will you pick me up
If I told you what's coming
Will that be enough

I want you for my love

Gospel Song

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

Jesus do you see me
When I'm sleeping
Do you hear me
When I'm weeping

Jesus do you know me
Do you know my name
Do you love me
Do you know my name
