Bad Idea 03:24
Bad Idea I know you, I’ve seen your kind before Whisky talking, laughing, dancing out on the floor Everybody hears you, everybody knows your name You look my way and I look back I’m frozen in your headlights and I know it’s a trap Head says, “Get the hell out,” body says, “I wanna dance” Baby this might be a bad idea But I got a good feeling in my arms When you hold me When you hold me mm hm When you uh huh When you uh huh like that You got a reputation like the ace of spades You play that deadly smile and it’s the end of the game I’m no good at bluffing, I know I’m an easy tell Your hands play me like a royal flush You fold me in your arms and it’s so hot that I blush I keep coming back to your door I can’t help coming back for more When you hold me When you hold me mm hm When you uh huh When you uh huh like that Baby this might be a bad idea But I got a good feeling in my arms When you hold me When you hold me mm hm When you uh huh When you uh huh like that ‘Cause I got a good feeling in my arms

Run Like Hell Honey you got a violent streak Red slash across your cheek You think that drink is gonna make You come alive That when you throw yourself Onto the funeral pyre They’re gonna clap their hands And say it changed their lives Don’t listen to the hungry ghosts, Don’t listen to the hungry ghosts Meet me in the alley in the middle of the night I’ve got an idea that I think you’ll like Baby slip away and don’t tell ‘em why And let’s run like hell, let’s run like hell for our lives Honey, you’ve got a vicious kick And you’ll fight until you’re sick You think your battle’s gonna prove Your love is real You got to throw your towel And tell ‘em shut their mouths You got to save yourself From the burning house Give up your hungry ghosts Give up your hungry ghosts Meet me in the alley in the middle of the night I’ve got an idea that I think you’ll like Baby slip away and don’t tell ‘em why And let’s run like hell You gotta run if you’re gonna make The gold that’s spinning inside your soul You gotta run if you’re gonna shake The ghosts that howl to take your life away Meet me in the alley in the middle of the night I’ve got an idea that I think you’ll like Baby slip away and don’t tell ‘em why And let’s run like hell, let’s run like hell for our lives

SEER 03:30
SEER He lies on a cold narrow bed in a blanket of sweat He’s blind in the night, struck dumb in his tongue He can’t say a word til the damage is done What does a prophet believe? When he’s cut, does he bleed? Does he pray for revenge, on his enemy’s head? Does he trust that the father will give him his bread? My son, it was necessary We must suffer to see the glory I’m commanded to go, so I must, to wander in dust I feast on the dirt, in a desert of thirst With spit in my eye, I see curse after curse My son, it was necessary We must suffer to see the glory What do you have to regret? Live blameless, and yet, Never know the silk of her skin, and the heat of a sin Not knowing the light in the eyes of your kin My son, it was necessary We must suffer to see the glory And could you choose the lesser of two? Could you live without love Or be subject to whims that come from above? Well, you don’t get to choose, ‘cause what’s done is done. My son, it was necessary We must suffer to see the glory My son, it was necessary We must suffer to see the glory Hallelujah Hallelujah

Sh 03:44
Speak of the devil and he Comes to my window and he Softly sings his song he Softly sings, so I don’t Speak of the devil I don’t Want him singing to me Thoughts unnecessary Of how love used to be So Eloquently he sings Gently to me he cries Softly, softly he weeps Over you and me, he’s Trying to persuade me Lying to delay me From making this clean break Away from my next mistake Hush now, don’t mention it Out loud, don’t even think about it ‘Cause your thoughts are loud Enough to hear Chut! maintenant, ne le dit pas, ne le pense même pas parce que j’entends vos pensées

Shirt 04:16
Shirt I like it when you wear that shirt on You can roll your sleeves and get your work done Mmm mm mm Mmm mm mm There’s a little twitch in your jawbone I can tell you see me when I leave my hair down Mmm mm mm Mmm mm mm Love is a look Across a crowded room I hear no noise But the beat and the boom Of my heart Of your heart Of my heart Of your heart I’m pulling on a thread off your shirtsleeve You’re leaning in close to hear me speak Mmm mm mm Mmm mm mm I see you catch my meaning in your glance You lead me by the elbow to the floor to dance Mmm mm mm Mmm mm mm Love is a look Across a crowded room I hear no noise But the beat and the boom Of my heart Of your heart Of my heart Of your heart And we dance shirt to shirt And we dance with our hair down And we dance shirt to shirt And we dance with our eyes on the ground Mmm mm mm Mmm mm mm

The Spider 04:24
The Spider Something’s moving fast and close I gotta know, I gotta know It won’t help to lock your doors We all feel alone, we all feel alone I feel it coming There’s a reason for my fear The spider knows I’m lonesome It’s not safe in here He just wants your face to hold I told him no, I told him no I’ll ask the questions and take it slow Don’t lose control, don’t lose control I feel it coming There’s a reason for my fear The spider knows I’m lonesome It’s not safe in here I followed my father How did I end up here I tried my hardest To hunt down my fears When the lights go out Where’s the spider now What’s this blood on my mouth Who’s the spider now

Whippo'wil 03:47
Whippo’wil You don’t know me anymore than I know myself And what’s to know about anyone Except we all feel on our own I get lonesome in the night Hearing the owl cry He’s calling out for someone gone She’s buried in the ground Who hoo Who hoo Life would be more easy If you’d just let me be We both could live In ignorant bliss Not knowing what we’re missing I get lonesome I don’t know why I’m happy the way I am Don’t wanna form no ties Don’t wanna let nobody in Who hoo Who hoo Somewhere in the dark I can hear the lid of the casket Keeping my heart safe No way it can break Oh Lord please don’t let them get it I get lonesome in the night Hearing the owl cry He’s calling out for someone gone She’s buried in the ground I get lonesome I don’t know why I’m happy the way I am Don’t wanna form no ties Don’t wanna let nobody in Who hoo Who hoo Who hoo Who hoo You can’t pray a lie

I'm 100 Years Old You are young and fast So you know everything Flash your guns and you run Your mouth; yeah you’ve got guts Baby you’re bothering me I’ve never been good at lying And it’s hard to pretend When you start talking louder That I believe all of your bullshitting Cause Baby you’re boring Baby you’re bothering me I want to sit here and enjoy my drink I’m a lot older than you think What the hell do you know? Where the hell have you been? Where I haven’t been I know who I am Maybe you think that I’m easy That I’ve never seen blood The only mind here that’s weak Is the one who won’t shut up This hill is not the one I’m gonna lay down and die on So you keep rubbing your guns And I’ll keep holding my tongue Cause Baby, you’re boring Baby, you’re bothering me I want to sit here and enjoy my drink I’m a lot older than you think What the hell do you know? Where the hell have you been? Where I haven’t been I know who I am You’re probably feeling brave and new You think the place belongs to you Maybe it does, maybe you’re the last hope But Baby, someday, you, too are gonna be 100 years old I want to sit here and enjoy my drink I’m a lot older than you think What the hell do you know? Where the hell have you been? Where I haven’t been I know who I am

Sugar Water 03:00
Sugar Water Youngest blush, the youngest blush When your sweetheart plants a tree A tree to mark his lasting love A love that grows as roots grow deep Reckless love, oh reckless love You sang your song, you saw your man Did you hear your conscience’s pluck, Or see the fiery ring to come? Left alone, left all alone With babes a’cryin’ for food to eat Well’s gone dry and the wind blows cold While he roams the distant valleys He don’t know, he don’t know I’ve fall’n in love with a handsome thief The handsome thief a’stole my heart We’ll meet again when I dream Now I am low, I’m very low My heart is sinking ‘neath my feet My husband gave me Doctor’s tonic Said take it daily, take and drink Drink it down, I drink it down While he still wanders chasing dreams I wander, too, towards my thief My family knows not what to think Sugar water sure is sweet But Sugar Water don’t cure me I’ll drink my comfort ‘til I die For my heart is tied to the family tree
