Track Name: The Liar
Oh Mother they say, they say he was made for me
Just you wait a while, just you wait and see
He tattooed with the Devil’s eyes
Idle hands and voice so kind
That lies
But he lies

You lie, you lie, and suffer my name
It’s mine, it’s mine to give or take it
So throw me in that deep black hole of his hell

You know this was never meant for me
His lying tongue lay me down with the Devil’s seed
Every night that he come ‘round
Every night you know the Devil
The Devil is out so

You lie, you lie, and suffer my name
It’s mine, it’s mine to give or take it
So throw me in that deep black hole of his hell
Oh throw me in that deep black hole of his hell
Track Name: Skin
Shame on you
Watch you spit on your mother’s grave
Shaved, I shave there too
Where you, you came from your mother

In life, lies lay on the side of fools
To wear the skin of a foal

A newborn blood
A newborn truth
Who could blend into summer's fall
Back out in winter's wall

Skin
What you wear
Is a foal
Is a half bare

Skin
Is a life
As in sin
Is a half lie

Skin
Who you dare
To see fall
To see nowhere

Skin
Press the knife
Make a wish
Meet me halfway there

Meet me halfway there

When I fall out of this life
I fall into skin

Skin
What you wear
Is a foal
Is a half bare

Skin
Is a life
As in sin
Is a half lie

Skin
Who you dare
To see fall
To see nowhere

Skin
Press the knife
Make a wish
Meet me halfway there
Track Name: Santa Sangre
I cannot wait
House of one hundred days
Wait for the white arms of Abel to
Tear me out of the waves, wet

I will not lay
Give you one hundred ways
For what I know isn’t able to
Pull me up from the grave’s bed

Oh santa sangre saint
Oh lift and sift the blood of shame
Undone, undone, the way we came
It’s said you wait for forever, too

I cannot keep
So low, one hundred deep
Bent down, unwilling, unable to
Pull us out of the shade he said

I will not sleep
Show in one thousand ways
That I am willing as Abel to
Raise us up from the pavement

Oh santa sangre saint
Oh lift and sift the blood, our vein
Undone, undone, the ways of shame
It’s said she waits for forever

I’ll wait, I’ll wait, till you’ve bled out
I’ll wait, I’ll wait forever

I’ll come back when you’ve bled out

I’m saved
Track Name: Southern Eye
Fall well the garder of the eye
See how we lifted up the night
Fall well the water of my eye
See how we light into the Northern Lights

I am called Daughter
I am not there
To look at God
You, too, came here
They cut of my head
Look back and yell
Are you still somewhere inside that well

Oh Brother
Oh hell yes
Oh come now, Father
We could not care less
And if you fail to sleep
Turn to the Southern Eye
And if you fail to see
Us in the Northern Lights

I am called Daughter
I am not there
To look at God
He, too, came here
They cut of my head
Look back and yell
Are you still somewhere inside that well

Shouldn’t you be left out there to lie
I look straight at the Southern Eye
Should you be left out there to lie

I am called Daughter
I am not there
To look at God
He, too, came here
They cut of my head
Look back and yell
Are you still somewhere inside that well
Track Name: Binge
So loud
The voice
The life
I take
The sand
From ground
To hand
I make
So harsh
The noise
It soils
My, my
My head
Head
It hurts for miles
I can’t
And I won’t
Be stormed
And be still
From what
Still burns
What I choose
To kill
So

Oh blood
Don’t tell me what should live when
I have come from Hell
And I should know what love is

Blood
Blood
Blood
Blood
Yes
Blood
On my hands
I did
Drugged down
In depths
Of mine
Unsolved
Inside
My child
I swept

To where a whore would ride me
Call me by my birth name
Call it, too, beside me

Oh blood
Don’t tell me what should live when
I have come from Hell
And I should know what love is

Oh Death
Oh Death
My good, sweet friend
Won’t you lend your hand and
Be it gently lent when

Oh him
Oh him
When he come and went said
Won’t you lend your hand then
Oh gently lance it

Don’t tell me how my blood should live
I was born here empty
When I’ve naught to give and

This how a war inside will find me
Ruin good, sweet friends and
Ruin digging sites

To where the whore she rides me
Calls me by my first name
Calls it at my bedside

Oh blood
Don’t tell me what should live as
I have come from Hell
And I should know what love is
Track Name: Salome
I hate
Worthless
Divine
My breast
Salome
Dance for me
Bring him
To his knees

Hatred
I will wear the crown
I will break your body
I will tear you down

Dirtied
My garments now
Pulled them from my body
Let them touch the ground

My hate
You will wear it now
On your frail you body
I have cut you down
Track Name: Less Than
He comes up and
He comes and he will
He comes to show me love

He comes for me here
He comes and he kills
But all is in the name of love

On golden hills
On sleeping pills
I beg to learn the way above

Show me love less than
Show me love less than
Show me love less than
Show me love

He came in here
He showed me his will
He did until the day was done

He came to me
He came here to kill
He said I was the only one

On my night meds
On my deathbed
I begged for him to be above

Show me love less than
Show me love less than
Show me love less, love less, love less

Don’t you say everything is alright
So far behind your eyes
I see every lie
In dreams I die, in dreams I die, in dreams I die
I dream of golden places
Our shining faces
Our endless waste
And your boundless taste

Show me love less then
Show me love less than
Show me love less than
Show me when

Show me when
These arms are open
Show me when
Those arms are open

Show me love less than
Show me love less than
Show me love less than
Show me love
Track Name: Love, Texas
I walk the line
Wearing white
Wearing love I
I’m dressed so fine
Dawn to night
Stand out on the highway

I wait for you each damn day
I wait for what we called learning
Your touch like sunscreen
Keeps me from burning

Grandmother, a table
Grandfather, your ashes
I came here
To Texas
To reclaim
What was ours

I wait for him each damn day
I wait for what I know is worth it
His touch like sunscreen
Keeps me from burning

I walk the line
Dressed in white
Barefoot on the highway
Walking
Lights in my eyes
I can’t see
Walking
I follow the white, white line

I wait for you each damn day
I wait for what we were learning
Your touch like sunscreen
Kept me from burning

I wrote you
Love, Texas
Track Name: Contender
Desperate contender
Tell me what you’re after
Secret pretender
Just can keep together
I’m 27
I will live forever
7th heaven
Now I’ll live forever

I cannot stay
Straight as a line
I cannot stay
To save my life
Save my life

My perfect contender
If I’m who you’re after
Sober not ever
We can hide forever
Be my protector
Into ever after
Tiny heaven
I will live forever

I cannot stay
Straight as a line
I cannot stay
To save my life
Save my life
