here tonight cut off my cancer wings my love it's life and everything little one little one you can't see the ring where they fight all night protector man my life is like a black rosary that hangs off a rear view mirror docile swinging with lefts and rights unborn to sing my white mute wolf higher fires father to screech and moan my baby prints in a big book at the hospital i'm born again and again and again
red and white and black and blue colors the flag that's wrapping paper for casket presents left under the tree of life of filthy america tune in at nine pm my families hands carrying me to a big book at the hospital i'm born again and again and again my life is like a black rosary that hangs off a rear view mirror docile swinging with lefts and rights unborn to sing my white mute wolf

Track Name: Naked Knife
he walks along asylum halls he waits for them to heat the cold he talks too much whispers too louse and he waits for them to fall out of the clouds stand up stand up take off your clothes naked knife holy ghost please don't get near excitement manipulate enlightenment can't you see it's burning backwards in this sinking ship sinking ship waiting for them to fall out of the sky waiting for the fall out don't be frightened it's just lightning lights in the sky again knives in the sky again lights in the sky again and mama tucks her little baby in
Track Name: Endangered and Paranoid
sir yes sir sign me up and take me there where the clouds sit under my hush we seem so incomplete we fall to pieces the only way we pick em back up i feel so incomplete this sinister skin endangered and paranoid so will you call the name of the one you've been raised to fear the judgement of and will your loved ones greet you when they meet you down in the simmering slum i feel so incomplete these dirty streets so angry and up and down i don't wanna go i don't wanna know i don't want to go on into the wrong i don't wanna know how this ends and if you listen i don't want to listen would anybody listen cause i don't want to listen to my sins ashes to ashes i fall masses to masses i fall master to master i fall atmosphere to ocean i fall i don't want to know and if you listen i don't wanna listen to my sins
Track Name: Peace Comes
life looks like a landslide run but you can't hide you can't shake tomorrow once upon a time i dreamed i'd knock myself off i didn't want to wake up and face tomorrow peace comes peace comes i promise i promise hold on we threw coins in the wishing well and chased broken dreams straight to hell and back no names just familiar faces and if you're running in the dark like a mad dog meets a vampire if your a house of fire let go cause nobody's living alone down here
Track Name: Feverland
I'll slow down slow down for now and I could love a little bit less cause you're all I ever wanted if you could love a little bit more meet me at the gate and it will burn at my soul a little bit less waking up to your face everyday I get dark I get dark you're the light of my heart I get down I get up dirty paws i'll do everything
