Track Name: Black Magic
I woke up this morning
found myself dead
what about this cloud parading in my head
I told you so long goodbye
after we broke bread
we don't stop this therapy until the last leg

There is no choking doubt
we have forgotten our names
yet all find out on our knees
it's all the same

Sweetest of this world wishes worn dry
can't say the same for this old man's eye
if you're gonna spit blood do it outside
no worries I'm already down

So it's alright, it's alright
So it's alright, it's alright
If you're gonna spit blood, do it outside
I said it's alright, it's alright

In this city of ghosts
what matters the most
what matters matters the most
kings, queens, guillotines
even if you knew what all that means
you'd sit up right in the wrong
honoring the fear for far too long

For lust, love, and illegal tender
talented ambivalence, what could be better
If you're gonna spit blood, do it outside
so it's alright, it's alright

Don't die on me soul
lord have mercy I go, I go on
losing luster through stained glass
what'll come your way it'll pass
I'm tired so tired
Oh foolish heart what have you desired

So it's alright, it's alright
So it's alright, it's alright
If you're gonna spit blood, do it outside
I said it's alright, it's alright
Track Name: Get Loose
Welcome to wonderment baby
cause I know you're together again
but I want you to remember every word I've ever said

And I know you're loving me baby
and I know I'm loving you too
but this strange cowboy love affair
don't care about you

So remember
I got the blues so bad
I got the blues
So let's get loose instead

You keep asking for the sweet sweet spell
you know, you know full well
it's almost over baby so hang loose
ride this instead
and I know you're loving me baby
and I know I'm loving you too
oh whiskey river don't mind my mind
I said, I'll do my time

So remember
I got the blues so bad
I got the blues so bad
I got the blues
So let's get loose instead

Careless is the name of every single faceless godly mistake
oh patience is what we need to get out alive, get out alive
oh take flight my little baby
on every cloud in the sky
oh don't forget to watch me slowly die
Track Name: Mayday Revival
Show me what all this howling is for
everybody’s hurting until the last curtain call
all we ever wanted was amusement and the wild
before exile

Much won’t change the hearts of man
all alone in their own again
lost in wishful ways yeah
bowing out for troubled praise

Hail your cursed unholy war
leave the gentlemen at the door
wake the anchors from their graves
there’s a many souls to save

Much won’t change the hearts of man
all alone in their own again
lost in wishful ways
bowing out for troubled praise

Everybody knows this
I said everybody knows this
oh the moment of truth
is waiting, waiting on you
it’s waiting on you

Lonely I can use
somebody, somebody like you
lonely I can use
somebody, somebody like you
somebody like you
somebody like you
Track Name: Bereft Theft
Over rock through river
I’m begging begging begging for a sliver
all day running through
I don’t have much to say to you

So here we are again
at journey’s, at journey’s end

Where were you
long lost friend
king of might of beens
hanging down your head

The king of heart’s delight
sweet sweet sweet tooth oh my
queen of the shrew
turn on your heels
and let others follow suit

Heads will roll
now let it take its toll
loving the whip aint eough no more
no more

Where were you
long lost friend
king of might of beens
hanging down your head

You know how the riddle goes
You know how the riddle goes

Where were you
Long lost friend
King of might of beens
Hanging down your head

Where were you
Long lost friend
The king of might of beens
Hanging down, hanging down your head
Track Name: Young Blood
All in the name of this
bloodsport to be
we stumble we fumble well not exactly
born under low end punches
oh what a luxury

I take it as it comes it comes in threes
oh hard love take your toll on me
this crown of laughter compels me
praise be, praise be

Young blood
love me as you should
young blood
love me as you should

When you’re born to fit
you gotta realize you ain’t worth shit
when you’re born to fit
you gotta realize you ain’t worth shit

Young blood
young blood
young, young
love me young blood as you should

When you’re born to fit
you gotta realize you ain’t worth shit
when you’re born to fit
you gotta realize you ain’t worth shit
Track Name: Pony Up
I told you baby
I told you enough
Considering you never asked me what's up above
All knowing warm to the touch
lay that head down low and pony up

Loyalty is in the ritual
of love and death
toying with you beautiful
I told you baby
I told you enough
times are a changing so pony up

Save yourself with sleepless eyes
shy away from compromise
Your house of worship ain't enough, ain't enough

The times are a changing
its time to learn and let go

Put on that empty dress
Leave all the lovelorn and rest
Put on that empty dress
make it simple and they'll love you to death

I don't need anything but a little bit a touch of you

I told you baby
I told enough
The times they are a changing
So pony up
Track Name: It's Not The Pale Moon That Excites Me
It's not the pale moon that excites me baby
It's the feeling in the air
It's not the pale moon that excites me honey
It's the unknown of a stare

It's not knowing whats to unfold
It's the feeling of being in
It's not the moon or the foul
It's the dirty hands that make this a clean living

You're forgone, I'm love
when it comes to push and
You're forgone, I'm love
when it comes to push and shove

It's not the pale moon that excites me baby
It's the heavy hands of time
It's not the pale moon that excites me honey
It's a heart like mine

With your eyes all forced a glow
There's much for surprise
Watch that heart
Feel those hands
Oh baby I'm gonna make you understand

You're forgone, I'm love
when it comes to push and
You're forgone, I'm love
when it comes to push and shove

Heavy heavy hands
I got heavy heavy hands

I wanna know where your mouth's been
Fragile little thing better be pushing red
I wanna know where your mind's been
I got wild dogs in the cellar sniffing for skin

And we ride, and we all little slide
Little by little a few yards more
We'll own the night
If anyone's holding score

You're forgone, I'm love
when it comes to push and
You're forgone, I'm love
when it comes to push and shove
I'm pushing and shove
Track Name: Hold On, Heartbreak
I don’t want anything that was never mine
I just want to know what’s on the line
if you ever knew what it took to save
every word I meant to brave

Hold on heartbreak
I don’t want to take
every loving from afar
don’t want your ways

I can hardly speak or understand
with a broken heart on amends

Hold on heartbreak
I don’t want to take
every loving from afar
don’t want your ways

I can’t get along
with you and all your wrong
I want what was
and now has been

She’s gone, he’s gone
onward baby
I won’t be here long

Hold on heartbreak
I don’t want to take
every loving from afar
don’t want your ways

I can’t love you baby
I can’t love you
I can’t, I can’t, I can’t prey on you anymore
my sweet thing loving loving no more
it’s a shame, always been a shame
oh dear loving shame you’ll be gone
