Track Name: Skin, Bones & Stones
You've got lots of gold, but nobody knows for sure
Will you make it out alive, will you make it out alive
The numbers are falling off the clock
The times have surely turned the tide
Will you make it out alive?
If you fight I think you might survive

The fire is higher now you can't even breathe
Your body is shakin' when you look over me
You're gonna sweat, Sally, dance with me
Come on and sweat, Sally, push on me

Shake your hips to the floor, Sally
We're gonna burn this city down
Carve your name into my chest, girl
Nobody here is getting out alive

Be my preacher, baby, be my lord
I'll be your teacher, show you to strike a chord
Steal our skin so we'll shake our bones, baby
They steal our skin, bones, and stones

They sell our skin, bones, and stones
Track Name: Ornery Kind
Born in the fall
The grass is starting to crawl
The lake is starting to shake
I take it I ain't awake
That day I died
Today I come back to life
Boots back, bones changed
Took strain but I'm sane

My mind's the ornery kind
Step inside and who knows what you will find
It paints my memories
It paints what I can't hide behind

Born in the spring
With a turquoise ring
Don't remember a thing
Just a walk to the scene
This day is done
A new chapter's begun
New sounds, new sights
I'm having one of those nights
Track Name: Poltergeist Blues
Been cold since I last saw my baby
A cold dagger right through my heart
I been dead since I last saw my baby
I let her kill me right from the start

I got the poltergeist blues
I got the dead man's blues

Been walking around trying to find my baby
My heart ain't got no beat
Walking around trying to find my baby
When I find her I'm gonna make her plead with me
Track Name: Drag Your Feet
Wake up now it's morning time, you best be on your way
You can drag your feet on your way to hell

Wake up now it's morning time, you best be on your way
You can drag your feet on your way to hell
Oh now it's summer time, you best figure it out
You can almost see but it's far too dark to tell
Me darling, what's your favorite name?
When the moonlight fades the sun will cast a shade

'Cause this is all over now
And this is not your stage to play
You're gonna bite, bleed, and howl
'Cause that side of you is here to stay
When my boot soles hit the ground
And my mind is wide awake
This town won't make a sound
And the devil's bones will shake

Stand up now, it's showtime, babe
You know you never used to shake your bones
But when the curtain falls
Their prying eyes will see
Me, darling, say my name
And if you want we can disappear
When you drag your feet
In the devil's yard we stay
Track Name: Green Eyes To Hypnotize
Eyes got me mesmerized
I can't get no sleep how hard I try
And I feel paralyzed
I can't deputize, there's no compromise tonight
Green eyes to hypnotize (Green eyes to hypnotize)
Green eyes to hypnotize the night

Severed secrets poison hearts
They take your life before it starts
300 million parts to play
They take your soul and they watch your life decay
Systematic execution of the people's revolution
They spread their hate with cold dead arms
Corrupt the state with green eyed charm

Look at you from across the room in your fancy shoes
While I'm locked inside your tomb
The people all start to shiver your finger on the trigger
One bullet make them quiver now
Green eyes gonna hypnotize (Green eyes to hypnotize)
Green eyes will hypnotize tonight

Contagious corruption can't pave a nation's roads
They just side with seduction, enslave us
And foreclose our business and our homes
Be righteous be rebels, it's what our children deserve
We might just slay those devils
And do in the federal reserve
If I was loaned silver, why should I owe back gold
In God we trusted this system
And it's left us dead and cold

Severed secrets poison hearts
They take your life before it starts
300 million parts to play
They take your soul and they watch your life decay
Systematic execution of the people's revolution
They spread their hate with cold dead arms
Corrupt the state with green eyed charm
And the day your heartbeat starts
Silver trumpets clear your thoughts
Find the strength in your own arms
To break the chains that hold your shame
And you swear you'll make them pay
All the ones who took your life away
With the fire in your breath
You sing the song that fills your pain

The state's got green eyes to hypnotize
And fate's got green eyes to hypnotize
They make the rules with green eyes to hypnotize
Now the schools have green eyes to hypnotize
The church has got green eyes to hypnotize
They sell us merch with their green eyes to hypnotize
The big cities have green eyes to hypnotize
There's no pity with green eyes to hypnotize
The banks got green eyes to hypnotize
And all the saints have green eyes to hypnotize
The sinners got green eyes to hypnotize
Become prisoners from their green eyes to hypnotize
We've been oppressed by green eyes to hypnotize
And the press screams green eyes to hypnotize
The law's got green eyes to hypnotize
They've all got green eyes to hypnotize
Track Name: Fairfax Motel
I was drinkin' last night with my brother by my side
He said, chase this Kess and chase that dress
'Til you get yourself satisfied
So I listened to my brother and I listened to the bottle
And I said, this'll do the trick
And I chased that Kess and I chased that dress
Until they both just made me sick

And it's seven in the AM
And I smell like a whiskey kiss
If you're lookin' for some lovin'
If you're searchin' for some givin'
Let me just tell you this
31-11 will give you something to reminisce

I was singin' to my lover
Trying to reason for a rhyme
She said, put down that pistol
And sing that sinful hymnal
And we'll both be satisfied
So I sang my best
And my friends all sang the rest
Gypsies singin' to a romany rye
Who's sitting in her chair
With the long grey hair
She's the reason that we'll always stop by
