Inside 03:18
Inside Somedays we’re walking, somedays we’re talking Lover my heart Oh lover my heart Oh you know, yeah you would know You saw the lord You saw the lord by the time they say Time they say When you know Yeah you would know Inside you would know It all goes Black birds are fighting Yeah they’re fighting A sign of the times A sign of life Yeah I know, yeah you would know Can’t stop the turning Can’t stop the turning But I miss the walks I miss the talks I know, yeah I know

Bad Nights 03:12
B a d N i g h t s I had the wrong night, I got the wrong fight I got it all when you came You took me in to, you took me in to I could be wasted, but you let me know you wanted to gun I didn’t know when, I didn’t know that I didn’t see you went out I couldn’t come out, I couldn’t find out I couldn’t open up to see what we had done You sure look wasted, You sure defaced it You saw them coming and you ran I can’t believe it, you sure deceived them You sure showed them that I was gonna come back in Don’t know when, I took the pills and Punched a face and run I can’t lie about, I can’t lie about I don’t remember what we did that dirty old night I’ve had enough now
3.
Stalker 02:44
Stalker And I am the one For you Could you be my love But I Wasn’t very good At it But I can always cut You up Dream about you Every night When I look inside Your room When I smell your clothes At night No, you don’t know I’ve been watching you for so long now You always miss, my tricks Sooner or later I will get my kicks Hey, I’m watching you I’ll get you soon I have always been The kind Of guy who does well With other guys So I see you come Inside You looking so fine Fine So I follow you You don’t know You don’t even know

D o w n To T h e B o n e I’ve come undone My luck has run 15 bottles down, the world is spinning around All the people are looking at me so strange Another drink to get over her Another stumble on the dance floor And I’ll have another last one for the road Leave me here, I got nothing going on I’ve drunk it all, right down to the bone 25 bottles away, and no one understands what I say My friends and lovers have all passed me by The situation’s gotten so grim I’m about at the fringe Of a washed up man and a broken hearted drunk Pour me another one
5.
Broken Scene 03:16
B r o k e n S c e n e Come upon such a broken scene That’s where your grace came in You say some faith is all I need For the light, the light, the light My cracks didn’t shine they didn’t beam All they seem to do is bleed It must be some kind of bad disease For the light, the light, the light I got all of my pieces lined up for show And I know that you know you can make me go I just needed some grace just needed some time For the show, the show, to finish my show Like a monkey on a string All your whims push and pull me This must be some kind of crooked thing For the light, the light, the light

Room For You 03:11
R o o m F o r Yo u I got love Room for you I got wed Come to bed Room for you I got child Lovely boy Lovely girl Room for you I got bored Get the saw Get the sword Room for you I got room I got room I got enough room my heart to take you all to hell with me Had no choice Had no choice The chewing in my brain was enough to make a man insane Lord help me now help me now Had to run For what I done What have I done? Room for you Told me to It was you What you made me do? Room for you Who are you? Made me kill Make me kill? Room for you I am bored Help me lord Room for you So I run Another one Another son Room for you I hear them come They’re on the hunt Room for you I am dead I am dead In my head You’re in my head Room for you

Rag Doll 03:00
Rag Doll Hello Rag doll Let’s go My rag doll Drag you all over town Nobody wants to see you frown You’ve never known anything else My rag doll Pull The leash Let’s try To keep the peace Bodies all in the street But the stars up above are so sweet And keeps the heads in the sand My rag doll It’s so low My rag doll
8.
C a l l M e W h e n Yo u D o Oh my Lord, oh good gracious we’ve hit all new lows All our time trying to get it right, it has all come to blows I don’t know what were doing, I don’t know what has gone wrong When you find out, I’m sure you’ll tell me it’s me all along Call me when you do, when you do When the shit comes down, it all comes down to you All them digs and all them nasty jibes have made us run dry I forgot how to tell you how you make me feel when we’re alright Oh no no there aint no cure for a women whose been scorn If you could tell me how to make it right, I’d get on the phone
9.
Light Of Day 03:09
Light Of Day I saw Grace, I saw Grace today You took mine, you took mine away It aint right, it aint right, what you do To make me, to make me choose All by the light of day Soon they will, soon they will see I was right, I was right, she was so mean Come back soon, come back soon my Grace Shove it all, shove it all in my face Nobody cares for me As much as they have said But I’d rather end up dead Because nobody cares for me
10.
A P r e a c h e r ’ s O r g a n Out into the darkness, not broken not lifeless, am I now losing my mind Row in this boat, the black robe and this musical box will show them my find Only 34 and I’ve lost so much more, but this old box has kept me alive Yield my calling, that great falling, and all my grace has run dry And so we just play Forsake the last day And we sing and we sing and we sing and we sing And we row and we row and we row and we row Into the fire, I would rather go than to have a life away from her love When I saw her, I knew that I was giving up everything for the sight of her waltz Taken with the sounds of a musical box, I could just watch her dance through the night At that moment I knew that this little black book and this robe is nothing but loss And so dear brothers, leave me here in this darkness, leave me here with the lost No great commission, no joyous redemption, I no longer trust in your god
11.
Come By Grace Come by grace, come by grace I’ve seen enough, I’ve seen enough To know that this, to know that this is it Soon they will, soon they will Come by me and they will see I’m broken down, broken down again They will feast, they will feast On my loss, at my cost Give me life, give me love oh grace. Come by grace, come on grace Not much time, not much time Before they come, before they come And dine Oh I saw, oh I saw Not the lord, not the lord But all is dark, all is dark oh grace Wait it out, wait it out See it now, see it now I’ve been fooled, I’ve been fooled by grace
12.
Been All Around This World (trad.) Hang me, oh, hang me, so I’ll be dead and gone Hang me, oh, hang me, so I’ll be dead and gone I wouldn’t mind your hanging, boys but you wait in jail so long Oh Lord, I been all around this world Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I’ll take my stand Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I’ll take my stand A rifle on my shoulder, six-shooter in my hand Oh Lord, I been all around this world Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door Before I have to walk in with my old ‘forty-four’ Oh Lord, I been all around this world Mama and Papa, little sister makes three Mama and Papa, little sister makes three They’re coming in the morning, that’s the last you’ll see of me Oh Lord, I been all around this world
