Track Name: Dark Adam
Your parted lips will drag cigarettes and you're going out again with her inside you
Cornered with every move, dollars fall into her fingers, you can't beat her but you, you still abuse her

More mother than your own, more lover than you've known

Sweet and warm, dark and wet, give her up
You're still young, twice as old, she's in your veins, give her up, give her up

She can't be the books you read or the religion that you seek
You bleed she's in your blood, think of the years, think of the years you've lost to her

More mother than your own, more lover than you've known

Sweet and warm, dark and wet, give her up
You're still young, twice as old, she's in your veins, give her up, give her up
Track Name: Wading
go first into the water, hold your head under
I had so much fear but tricked my teacher and floated away

crawled into the banks behind dead trees and brush
I watched others as they drowned
I was driven to tears

can I stop wading?

I was filled with grief
but there was another
we got out of the river and walked to the city even though it was empty

hiding out we found your house and we prayed
took a chance and told you what we'd done

can I stop wading?
Track Name: Ghost
The fire's been lit
and I hope you still love this house
'cause I just burned it down
how does it feel to know you made it out?

I don't want your ghost to live with me

(I) don't take coffee black
sugar and cream are like compliments to me
and should be used, sparingly

I don't want your ghost to live with me
I don't want your ghost to touch me

a phonecall away
your coat and your tie are still on my floor
it pains me so, honey
I think you can tell it's making me sour

I don't want your ghost to live with me
I don't want your ghost to live with me
I don't want your ghost to live with me
Track Name: It's Dead
Honey I'm a monster with my claws on your shirt
Your like a child with your paws on my skirt
All my hidden charms have turned for a curse
Devotion dangerous and turned for the worse

It's dead

It's like parking your car where there ain't room for it
Or not a damn thing on your TV set
You left shoes to fill in a field too rough
You left a broken girl and she ain't loved enough

It's dead

This is self-aware, but I am lost and I'm half-relieved and tired enough, and I'll take a few to live and learn to cry in shame, to feel and burn
Is this the love that chose to drown? I think it lives but still might die

It's dead
Track Name: Live And Die Lullaby
Sweet baby's gonna sleep all day
he is blessed with the rest of the dead, that is, until he's awake
he's got the eyes of his mom and the heart of his daddy
no pressure is on until he is ready
he's got his whole life ahead of him

So goodnight, baby good night
sleep tight baby, you know
you've got your whole life ahead of you
so baby goodnight

You better thank your lucky stars that girl of yours don't go to bars you do
whiskey and lies resize the mind of a man like you
it weren't your worst night out or your best one either
I'll put a song in your heart to put you to sleep or you're
poppin' those pills just to get some relief

So goodnight, baby good night
goodnight baby, you know
you've got your whole life ahead of you
so baby goodnight

John Henry was tall and lean
and like him you're a man against your machines
I'll put a prayer book next to your eyes
and a song in your heart to kill your disease
but, baby, you know it's time to make your peace

So goodnight, baby good night
goodnight baby, you know
you've got a long road ahead of you
so baby goodnight
