Pity 03:59
They've already cast the lots For the weeping and the dead The only one still waiting here is me Moltov cocktail you drink it up I'll wait until you pass the cup I swallow fire water with ease Early in the day the man came 'round Singing "I am he" Though I repeated every line Not one belonged to me Unload my sorrow to sow the plain I'm not your friend, I'm not your man I'm no one and there's nothing to my song Throw a bit of blood on the boiler, my mouth is dry We'll watch the sky spit fire, or ease into the rain Abstract the plain of tongue Crawl over, roll under Boys even shit is throwing thunder So wet the floors of the marketplace And abstain from making friends Give the message to the receiver And see if it appears
I wanna sing you a simple love Oh we're howling with the moon It followed us down to Brownsville Your skirt hiked up, your hands on the wheel Though I've been burned I aint ever been down to Brownsville Girl Ch: And if I get up it might be to drown in the rain I've got no wish to wake this morning Singing "Love" love When honest love was only ever worth a dollar or two Should I say we went out dancing When we've never left the room There's so much that don't come to mind Love your by our window with the dawn Chorus..... But you'll be mine till our fingers too grown thin You'll be mine
Lord I try my hardest to ignore The blank eyed soul as it weighs on me It's sleeping With no silence in mind Says it hurts just to walk When the fears you've made line up to seduce you Throw your hands out, command them Tell them turn and walk away I gave my life to just one thing And the fruit that it swore to bear There's still some clarity Assured to the ignorant I hold no treasure in my hands When young girls begin howling And the boys, they're clawing too Set your sights on nothing Nothing will keep its promise to you
Blackbird 05:11
The salesman he falters "I was brought here by fury" says he Followed four big birds in the sky Which led him to water Gold wired to his tongue Stolen from one he swore would remain unnamed, He bathed. Sometime before, Mary of the soft brown hair The coal black of her eye Oh he'd come unto her All through the night Alongside a crow eyed girl, possessed of slim fingers Standing o'er the body of a lark The one said she was a widow Mary said "That's nothing unique" The were children in the bushes, eyes glowing sand and sky He crossed his fingers three times And when asked what he'd come for he pointed at his mouth And shook his head O'er the body of a lark Sand and sky Drown dead He bathed
Tacoma 05:09
Lord I'm sitting here in this cage Infected by insect and by age Would you have me now? Or go away? Sand infests my Loreli And its always so close to rain I still have eyes Though they be half blind Would you have them now? Or go away? Tacoma through my days and Tacoma through my dreams There's girls on bicycles on the street Would I have them otherwise or go away? There's cherry blossoms outside my window now Through that early morning blue You know I was born in hte summertime My appetite ain't ever realized in the winter I've been asleep for 100 shallow days And there's a comic sin each evebing as my Madonna, she's all stained I need a pure fire, she needs a hard rain If I'm a pure fire She needs a hard rain And I don't think I will ever dream again I wrote my bible lord, and I cast it down again
Maureen 01:50
Maureen, she's lonely She's standing in her doorway, holding her breath She's been waiting on you since morning And I don't mind if she do She's gathered the flowers in her hair She's been waiting on you since morning And I don't mind if she do There's a stranger in the sunset rolling by She's been waiting on you since morning And I don't mind if she do
Most of All (free) 06:04
Sympathy don't roll But from the side of the mouth The windows all point to the sea When the sand is adorned With the limbs and the teeth Of the children of subjects Not kings Mara she's shown With her daughters in tow The fury of an al mighty grace "Why not" she sighs With her lover inside He's been cautioned But it ain't no use Chorus: She's got most of what he needs Eyes as blank as the wall She's got most of what he needs Her guard need not testify at all He's a herald by trade And his offer's been made Asked he'd lay in the gallows Or the dirt "I will tell no lie but let your daughters decide If its me or the vultures you desire" Mara she's faithful Peeks through her window Out where the beasts come to feed Can't make out what she's she's shown But by god hear her moan "There are forces mightier than thee" She's got most of what he needs Eyes as blank as wall She's got most of what he needs Her guard need not testify at all
Walking through the cane In the old man's yard The dogs howl "man, you can feed the fire" But the fire's good and going And I'm not not a man I'm a steer baby Watch me follow Watch me go Now I've wasted all my time Under this old bare tree I've spent some time alone And some in bad company Though all is forgotten Nothing is forgiven The tide is dammed All the saints are burning But I'm not a saint I'm a man baby Watch me drown
