Track Name: The Devil And His Son
You let the devil and his son into your home
you gave them bread, you gave them blood
and now they won't leave you alone.
They walk around these streets like they're their own.
You will ask for them to leave, but they will always say no.
They'll say no.
They'll crush you with their teeth and sink their horns
oh so deep into your veins and leave you crawling back for more,
back for more.
You let the devil and his son into your home
you gave them bread, you gave them blood
and now they won't leave you alone.
They walk around these streets like they're their own.
You will ask for them to leave, but they will always
They'll always say no.
They'll say no.
They will always say no.
Track Name: Gone Wrong
Well I heard you've been livin' in the spotlight
Your eyes are bloodshot and your skin is pale white
You've been searching this crowd for a nightlight
Someone to make you feel safe as you sift through the highs
Been growin' out your beard and gettin in fist fights
Keepin' the kids entertained, wither away on the side of the
stage.
Well you've been laughin' like a jackal in the streetlight
But your conscience sleeps tight, hope your mind is alright
Don't go crazy on me
But don't slow it down
The kids won't like how that sounds
How it looks or how it tastes in their mouths
How it looks or how it tastes.
Well you've been swayin' back and forth inside a bottle
Always screamin' at the waves, as if they have something to
Say to you.
Here's to all that smoke that you blew in my direction
Fuck you.
Another child trapped inside of a man
Hope you find someone to blame
First you consort with them then piss on their grave
Think your life's cut against the grain
But you spend each night trapped in the same place
Hey, next time, find a more clever way to spit in my face.
Track Name: Champagne Is For Celebrating
Well she sits on display
Pin up personal hopes from the centerfold page
Contemplate
She's a vision of lust at such a fragile age
This decay
Fits so comfortably in with her daily trend
But keep an optimistic head
For this will work out in the end
Her morals will get the best of her
She's got it all figured out
But she's only eighteen now
So we'll dance to the night
That we set that fire inside
Her heart now set in stone
Oh baby please don't go
Well she spits in the face
Of every man growing down
To a boy never put in his place
Nothing more than a fake
He crawls to his closet and waits
He's ashamed of his name
Each and every admirable social affair is now washing away
Being replaced
By the emptiest plate
And the stiffest drink he can take
Call me names
But don't be mad or sad, curse the world
For the world is to blame
He thinks he's got it all figured out
Thinks his life is as bad as he makes it sound
So we'll dance to the night
She put out that fire inside
His heart, now set in stone
He knows she's not his baby anymore.
Track Name: Friendliest Neighbors
Well I asked my friendliest neighbor
To retrace a few years back in my shoes
And to do for me some of the things
That he swore he'd do for you
And he said you've racked up quite some debt
And you've developed a nasty curse
It hangs on your head each and every day
And it's only gettin' worse
And he asked, "Do you really wanna join that fate?"
And I said, "I want nothing more,"
"I would gladly carry that burden
If it would provide me the pleasure I've been searchin' for"
All my life, all my life, all my life long
We've all been livin' in
The excess of our youth
And we hide from the crippling burden
That our lives are being consumed
We stare at the broken housewife
Cleaning dishes that have not been used
As her kids run off to college
And her man drinks away his blues
But I swear I won't be that man
I know I won't be that man Whoa Oh
Or maybe I will.
All my life, all my life, all my life long.
Track Name: Lighthouse
We'll capture and crucify the king
But get killed in the crossfire
Hopefully my remains
Will find a way back
Back to the basement I call home
Before noon so my friends can all get stoned
And don't worry cause' I'll deal with the holy ghost
Once I finally find some time to die
Oh, it's time to die
Maybe not tonight
But I know it's time
I've still got more mind to waste
Can't fuckin' find my keys
I, I guess I had it comin'
I've still got more nights erased
Than I could care to think or speak about
But I do it anyway.
I wanna live in a lighthouse singin' songs
To the neighboring sailors as they count on me
To guide them home
To guide them back
To the wives and the lives they left behind
They're much happier at sea
Singin' songs about whiskey and dreadin' the light
That brings the ground back under their feet
I've still got more mind to waste
Can't find my fuckin' keys
I, I guess I had it comin'
I've still got more nights erased
Than I could care to think or speak about
But I do it anywaaaaaaaaaaay.
Like it's my job, my cause, my life.
