"Pale & Frail (Shiny Shiny Shiny)"
There's not a ticket to life
You've just got to ride the right
I will not be deterred
By the requiem bells

Black diamonds
Black cigarettes
Are shiny shiny shiny
So shiny shiny shiny

I love you
I want you
I need you to know

It's a beautiful bend
But there's a gun in my food
I will sleep no more
And I wlll sing for war

The pale and frail refrain
It compensates the pain
It takes me six years
To disintegrate and stain

Black diamonds
Black cigarettes
Are shiny shiny shiny
So shiny shiny shiny

I love you
I want you
I need you to know


"Soft Killing"
The bit of her tongue
The harder I fall
The softer she stands
She prayed to never return
And she prayed for the injured

Your beautiful presence is
Soft Killing
Your beautiful essence is
Soft Killing

For the rest of this life
In his or her shade
There's something at play
The green snakes bring messages to the dead
Old trees shake off silver medicine

Your beautiful presence is
Soft Killing
Your beautiful essence is
Soft Killing


"The Bed in My Past-Life"
Go far
Look to the stars
Are there voices out ahead?

Dip your body
Into the water
The hand you're dealt
Waist deep in water


"Joyless Street"
underneath the sheet lies a beautiful woman
modern girl, so there's a television on
the sword of the lord, the sword of my lord
cuts paranoid plots

a man must have a joyless street to walk
say what you want, say what you want
a man must have a joyless street to walk
say what you want, don't say what you want

say what you want
i'm focused above
the smoke, it chokes my heart
and when we were together
it was impossible to doubt
my eyes see it clearer
when the sun shines in your mouth

a man must have a joyless street to walk
say what you want, say what you want
a man must have a joyless street to walk
say what you want, don't say what you want


"Ever-repeating Holy Nothings"
Summertime is the greatest time to be alive
I don't feel sorry for your loss because I'm alive
Would you rather dance with me, or climb a tree
I know Jesus Christ is inside this liquor symphony

Blown out wishes are born down
Upon this raging null
Like it's a current trend
To let the blues consume the skull
My black feet are aching now
But it's up to me
Because death's very really
And she's probably not functioning

Oh, round desire
Take us to the desolate light
The tide has spilled
And this time has spent some desperate nights
At days close when we're both parting sheets
He's down the hall in rapid ways
One step closer to me


"Cities of Scandal"
Buried beneath the night and day
Slap on a face that's a ok

And that's the way it will stay
Cities of scandal
Beneath the shining dead
Cities of scandal

And that's the way it lives
The american dream is dead
That's just the way it will stay
My american dream is dead

I'm a little, little mad
I'm a little, little mad

And that's just the way it will stay
Cities of scandal
Beneath the shining dead
Cities of scandal

"Traveling Through Static Tunnels"
Hope just got in here
And she see's that I'm real
I appreciate for too long
But my memories are dead

I'm giving up and leaving
I'm traveling through static tunnels

There's this light in you
Hold the applause in your little cause
My heart is in the hotel
Well, oh well

I'm giving up and leaving
I'm traveling through static tunnels


"We Are Alright"
The heat is rising now that she's arrived
It's my favorite year to disappear
The desert's hands have pulled me in
With humbled eyes
I have realized

We are alright
We are alright
We are alright
We are alright

Then why am I vanishing before your eyes

We are alright
We are alright
We are alright
We are alright


"Magic Bedrooms"
With a powerful voice
When I leave tomorrow
I won't let you down

I've got death inside
Finale passions
Aggressive nights

The bones of my body
Are ocean hollow
Just close the door
Try and breathe

Pretending to miss dead friends
Pretending there's a monster
Exposing


"Hell Rides a White Horse"
I roam around in silence with the castle girls
dancing by a window of a shattered world
the devil's just a man in a nice pair of shoes
go to the house with a diamond on the roof
Jesus was a failure who drank nothing but wine
with nothing to be in seven houses of time
the devil's just a man in a nice pair of shoes
go to the house with a diamond on the roof

run your hands through the burning sand
cakes and wine surround the devil's plan
bless me brother with your eyes
because every second i know somebody dies

pick your hands up off the kettle drum
and let's go down to the tunnel of love
sit and watch the hands of time
we're in this house just waiting to die

I said grace at the front of the gate
and I saw the dead at the foot of the bed
the shadows, they are death's definition
so let's play with the devil and invite him in

look inside this house, my baby
our love is a secret society
the devil's just a man with a nice pair of shoes
now go down to the house with diamonds on the roof

Hell rides a white horse
Hell rides a white horse
Hell rides a white horse
Hell rides a white horse
Hell rides a white horse
Hell rides a white horse
Hell rides a white horse
Hell rides a white horse


"Beach Crash"
I'm getting to wind down
This is the end
She's always the passenger
With ice and ornaments
The rain takes you off
Where it's always warm

You're almost free
On the open road
You're almost free
On the open road

I'm getting to wind down
This is the end
She's always the passenger
With ice and ornaments
The rain takes you off
Where it's always warm

You're almost free
On the open road
You're almost free
On the open road
