Track Name: Ocean Dirge
Ocean Dirge

Heavy waves are pushing
this boat from side to side
Praying deep below deck that
this ocean don't take our lives
when there's a storm a-brewin'
you all makes conclusions that
it's not all worth the fight
but this dream we're pursuing
of rivers of wine and
treasures they fall from the sky
haunt our lives
we're singing

CHORUS
We sail into the dawn
hearts heavy with burden
spirits we keep high
singing on the ocean
I swear I saw an angel
burning in the setting sun
but before this
candle ignites at both ends
I'd say I think the ocean won

You know you got to fear me
because I'm the one
your mother warned you about
I'm a fearless man of the water
sailing, sailing day in and day out
when there's a storm a-brewin'
you all makes conclusions
that these men will surely die
but this delusion we're pursuing
of rivers of gold and
treasure they fall from the sky
we're singing

Repeat Chorus

We're going down (repeat x3)

Better abandon the ship

We're going down, better abandon the ship (x3)

I said before this day is over
declare the oceans won.
Track Name: Shotgun
My baby got knocked up

I been dodging buckshot near all my life
now I got a man fixin' to find me a wife
I don't need nobody telling me how to live my life
But it's a shotgun
(SHOTGUN!)
Shotgun wedding tonight

My baby got knocked up
(baby got knocked up)
Her daddy got a shotgun
(daddy got a shotgun)
Boy I'm gonna tell you
(boy I'm gonna tell you)
Ya best start running'

Repeat x1

Shotgun wedding tonight

Now who-ooooooo are you?
a boy in blue behind a badge so bright
I said who-ooooooo are you?
a creep, a marauder hiding in the night
I said who-ooooooo are you?
A savior in righteous white
I said who-ooooooo are you?
father of the bride I knocked up right

I said train goes a-rolling I'm looking back
thinkin' that the man's right on my ass
repeat x4

Come on! I said come on

I been dodging buckshot near all my life
but it's a shotgun (SHOTGUN)

Track Name: Ghosts in the Galley
Ghost in the galley and the captain spoke:
"Oh my crew is it all tragic this life alone"
Ghost in the galley and the captain choked
as he attempted to quickly repeat himself:
"Oh my crew is it all tragic this life alone
your wife's lament and the screams of your children
while sailing for a bastard that you know damn well
couldn't give a fuck about you
and that's true"

Ghost in the galley and the captain smoked
how the opium haze, it filled the room
Ghost in the galley and the captain smoked
and suddenly things were a bit more clear:
"Oh my crew is it all tragic this life alone?
You gotta love the freedom that you get from home
and the bond we form together makes you
know damn well, I truly give a fuck about you
so let's go and

Break open the tops of the whiskey barrels
let that rum flow like a river down to your soul
Break open the tops of whiskey barrels
let that rye numb the pain you feel from home

I keep on drinking that whiskey
I keep on drinking that wine
I think my vision is foggy
or is it just the horizon
keep on jugging that poison
keep on sipping that rye
I think my vision is foggy
or is it just the horizon
oh, I do not know

All the while we were only Ghosts.
Track Name: Festival
Please say that is is a dream
this festival of gypsies and freaks
how they spin around
mouth open, words stolen
with a slur they come spilling out

I know the way
to find the treasure
follow the stars
reveal the fortune

Repeat x1

But I'm still wondering why
the fires down below
are still burning in your soul
and the lives that you lead
are only fueled by your greed
and your need to succeed
your lives and your pension
to feed on the weak
I used to be a simple man
but that day is done
now I'm wondering
why-y-y-y-y-y-y

I'm wondering why-y-y-y-y-y-y (x3)

You're trying to break my heart
you're trying to break my

hea-a-a-a-a-a-art
(please say that this is a dream) (x3)

please say
this is a
dream
Track Name: The Snake Song
My baby makes you wanna move (repeat x3)

Bear down like a bursting flame
blisters form over blisters
mind convinces the body to thrive
but it doesn't get specific
starting out on a spiritual quest
a journey to find a reason
instead I found you
like a cursed sentence
write me out of existence

you know you wanna
your hiss baby you know you're so deadly now
your kiss baby you know you're so deadly now
Repeat x3

I see your decadent, deliberate strikes
with pinpoint like precision
I wish we coulda spoken first
before you made your decision
watch you contort
as i sweat you outta my system

you know you wanna
your hiss baby you know you're so deadly now
your kiss baby you know you're so deadly now
Repeat x3

Slim thing
little fork tongued truth
ya i love the way you move
The things you do to me
are so unreal

Slim thing
little fork tongued truth
i really love the way you me
I just can stop thinking about
the way I feel

you know you wanna
your hiss baby you know you're so deadly now
your kiss baby you know you're so deadly now
Repeat x3

Cocaine cowboy dead on the line
Now i'm thinking I will not be fine
burning under this fireball with you

Cocaine cowboy dead on the line
Now I'm thinking I will not be fine
burning under this fireball with you
Track Name: Neon Lights of Doom
It was the same old song
It was a very typical type of dance
the monkey sang along
but none of the words, they made sense
and it will come like a technological fire
and over take us all
it will bring us shame
you'll loose your dignity
when you become part of the wall

just plug in, just plug in, just plug in
and fade away
Repeat x1

It has no heart, you have no head
Repeat x1

And the world will burn
in the neon lights of doom
Repeat x1

they laugh, ah, but now you are regreting
not cry and oh and learn your lesson
it has no heart, you have no head
it has no heart, you have no head
and the world will burn
in the neon lights of doom
and the world will burn
in the neon lights...
in the neon lights of doom


let's keep it simple
red, blue, and green
she's glowing mean
let's keep it simple
red, blue, and green
like gasoline
let's keep it simple
red, blue and green
she's glowing mean
let's keep it simple
red, blue and green
like gasoline
let's keep it simple
red, blue, and green
she's glowing me
Track Name: Summer Rose
Sweet summer rose, are you judging me
from your castle in the clouds
remember the nights you shared next to me
those are the nights I can't forget

Or am I just another reject?
That you toss aside no one's ever good enough for you
and I'm thinking that you suspect
I'm a little too crazy to loose
Now I'm just another reject
begging like a dog whimper by your feet on the floor
and I'm thinking that you suspect
I'm a little too crazy for you

Sweet summer rose
I can prove it to you
no one cares for you like I do
yes I'm a stranger staring in at your life
but I'm sure I can show you I'm the one

Repeat Chorus

You are my sweet summer rose
My sweet summer rose
My sweet summer rose
I'm still in love with you
Track Name: River
ow down the river
(row down the river)
Row down the river
to bury your bones
I float down the river
(float down the river)
Float down the river
to carry you home
I row down the river
(row down the river)
to bury your bones
I float down the river
(row down the river)
Float down the river
where you sleep alone

You ain't so pretty with your eyes rolled back
I bet this wasn't the kind of night you had in mind
I feel my anger and I hold it back
I'd rather keep a calm composure when I wring your neck
It's just I get so excited when I hold you down
your body lying motionless on the ground
and for just a second thought I saw you breath
but it was just the wind passing by
slowly by

Repeat Chorus

There's something strange about this night it's clear
the moon is bleeding and the sky is turning black
I said I love you and you said I can't
it's not the only thing from that night I regret
You smile but I put an end to that
If we can't be together then I'll make this night last
I stopped your crying when I stopped your heart
I never wanted things to end this way
oh no

Now go to sleep my broken doll
I'll make a flower from your bones
Repeat x7
Now go to sleep my broken doll
Carry you home
Track Name: About the Length of a Street Fight
Watch out, baby, because here I come
pumped up on liquor and pills
ready to fuck shit up with the mindset to kill
Move through crowds like a saw blade spinning
ya I will cut you in two
ya better watch your mouth or your teeth become part of the deal

Bloodied up, bruised ego
repeat x1

Head down barrel through, I'm fired up
words are the bullets that pierce
don't think that I like you
don't think that I care
fuck you, baby, fuck your man too
cuz there's nothing left for you here
I'll chop you down, call me the axe man

Bloodied up, bruised ego
Repeat x1
Track Name: Voodoo Rendezvous
What kind of magic spell to use
snakes and snails and puppy dog tails
Repeat x3

Why don't you, Why don't you
at the voodoo rendezvous
Why don't you Why don't you
come on down
Why don't you why don't you
at the voodoo rendezvous
Why don't you Why don't you
come get wild

Bow down at the moonlit alter
dressed for sacrifice all in black
painted bodies exclaim
a magical whisper
rising through the sCenTed air
to fall dead upon your lips
nothing could be more perfect
in this death-fueled orgy
this sick twisted game
that I call my life
whether the blood just got you off
or got you horny
look around because everyone's having fun

repeat Chorus

I have never seen
without my third eye open
so many beautiful things
the sky splitting like a piece of paper
right above me
or it's just the hallucinogen
nothing could be more perfect
in this death-fueled orgy
this sick twisted game
that I call my life
whether the blood it got you off
or just got you horny
look around because everyone's having fun

repeat chorus

wadaloo wadaloo ehhh
wadaloo wadaloo ohhh
wadaloo wadaloo ehhh
wadaloo wadaloo
oh oh oh oh oh

to hell we go
but never alone
we got zombie bones
and all the lost souls
repeat x1
