Track Name: The Secret
Morning
Seems like it ain't ever gonna come
A pity, it's a pity
Its a pity for the man without a master
And blood runs free mama

Mourning
Ain't quitting for good in my days
And blood runs free mama
Pity, its a pity
It's a pity it ain't the lord what struck you down
Track Name: Heart for Dreaming
Were you to sing some lonesome morning
And swallow my last breath
If by your lips we were parted
I'd remember you as true

A desert rain is also falling
It has drowned my lonesome mind
Its oh so still, the flowers wilted
Though they recall a heart untrue

A heart for dreaming will tear blossom from the vine
Had I tried and lord I tried
But for every love you're mourning
You'd still be mine
Track Name: Pauline
Hey there father, its so good to see you again
Its going breezy and the clouds don't end
The fans of my friends, and friends I've never made
Are all out there somewhere in this world
But as you and I were parted I pray I may return
And I hope that I make it before the rain
I worked my fingers till they bled and minded what I said
But the dreams I had was never meant to be

You always said you'd meet me here
and it's as I always feared
This is no place for a man to stand

I gave my life I gave my money to Pauline
And here she's living by the sea
Although she loved me well
I damned her life to hell
I wish I could have been a better man

You always said you'd meet me here
And its as I always feared
This is no place for a man to stand
Track Name: Blackwater
On the deep black river
I wait for you to shine
Some gone day
You'll get yourself together
Then and there
We're crying for you now

Not your sunshine baby
nor pouring rain
No, the night is long
And I'm lonely again

When you get broke down
Your voice ain't the same
Still the River Man call
"Boy come again"

On the old dead ocean
In their sailing suits and caps
All our days
drowned down, down
awaiting saviors and black haired gals

We're crying for you now
Not your sunshine baby
Or pouring rain
No, the night is long
and I'm lonely again
Track Name: The Other Guys
Free for so long
Lays his teeth
On the shelf
If he's on his knees
Then you know he will

It's been a long, tall winter
And lonesome yes besides
He wants out
But he's in it
See him trembling so

There's a shadow wan and lonesome
Like one you've seen before lord
It'll drag you down and leave you to the dogs
Track Name: For Nothing
If I die before you meet me
Lead my body to its grave
When I lay aside that stone
Won't be the man I was known to be

Hey I sang the whole day long for nothing
Hey tomorrow is sorrow
Hey I sang the whole day long
But I never said a word

My good friends have slept before the serpent
I myself don't even rise
My sweet love is 'neath the window
Sun soaked, blood stained thighs

Hey I sang the whole day long
Hey for nothing
Hey I sang the whole day long for nothing
And pissed into the wind

I spoke the words of the master
To an old, dead drum
Track Name: Who's on Your Pillow?
I tried to get across
I'd given up as lost
Everybody in this wide world but you
For you I started falling
And one night I heard you calling
Come darling
And keep me by your side

Won't you tell me now
Who's that lying on your pillow?
Don't tell me why
Just tell me who's that lying on your pillow
Don't tell me why

Our love it started strong
You hurried me along
No I never thought you'd throw that love away
Darling Oh my darling I hate to set you free
So I would leave you nearer god to thee
Mama, sweet mama won't you miss me when I've gone
I can never tell, look how you carry on

Won't you tell me
Who's that lying on your pillow?
Don't tell me why
Just tell me who's that lying on your pillow
Don't tell me why

Darling, oh darling I hate to set you free
So I will leave you to your lord
Nearer your god to thee
