Track Name: Cane and Rice
Don't shed a tear ‘cause I'm missing you tonight,
You're walking away from me and feeling fine.
Up to my neck in the panic that I can't hide,
You're running far from, the rest of them lied.
Ground into the stones and the weather that I can't win,
I've fallen far within, my exit's right.

And I guess I didn't want to make you stand by.

Stand by myself in a field of cane and rice,
Said I won't kiss and tell, but I might.
Write a letter with a hand so taken by haste,
What a bitter taste, so righteous and bright.

And I guess I didn't want to make you stand by.
All these things, we'll make it through
Stand by..
Track Name: Keith and Tina
She broke both her legs hitting the ground,
I stood over her screaming.
Turned my head to the siren sound,
And my back to her bleeding.

Tell my girl that I'm sorry,
Now there's so many locks on my door.

Seven women came, seven bodies slain, still they called out for more.
'cause these voices they talk to me daily, and they get wild when they're ignored.

Oh I'm lost here, it's a cost dear, it's something we can't afford.

Oh when the lights go down and the clanging walls shut me away.

I know, I know.

We built this, I killed him, 'cause he got in the way.

I came to bed about half ten,
I could see that he'd been there.

From the cum on your dress and the mess of your hair,
I knew then that I'd kill him.

So I walked slowly down to my kitchen.
I took a knife from the second drawer.

I barreled on down to the beerhall and

There I called his name just to be sure.

Though he pleaded with me to be patient,

Still I stuck him like a two bit whore.

Oh he bled out, red it gushed out and sprayed up against the toilet door.

Oh when the lights go down and the clanging walls shut me away.

I know, I know.

We built this, I killed him, 'cause he got in the way.

Now it's been fourteen years since I cut him down,

Fourteen more till I see her.

And I think of the times when she loosened her gown,

And the whispers that I heard.

So tell my girl that I miss her,

And I didn't mean to do her harm.

Cowering in my cell when the ringing bells,

Sing loud the alarm.

Because the borderline's close now to breaching and
I'm tired of these calls.

The cutters in my hand and the other man

Is slipping down the call block wall.

'cause I'm tossed and I'm tired and I'm beaten,

And I'm sick of all these chores,

Oh I'm lost here, it's a cost dear,

It's something we could never afford.

Oh when the lights go down and the clanging walls shut me away.

I know, I know.

We built this, I killed him, 'cause he got in the way.
Track Name: Cotton Fields
We work the fields,
The cotton yields

We sing our songs for the god almighty
We work strong,
We feel at home

We have the strength of the Christian county


——


With little rest,

We do our best,

We have an overwhelming sense of duty,

And I'm the one,

The luckiest one,

She took my hand and told me that she loved me.


——


Could've been mine you know,

Could've been a long time show,

Could've been a lifetime

of lonely little wishes , and your burning kisses,

now it seems to me that the high lines on,

oh yeah the low lines gone.

We married young,

Had many sons,

They worked hard in a far off country,

And then he came,

With his greedy blade,

In one stroke he took her from me
Track Name: Looking Back
'cause all of you were looking back, you were looking behind,
Worried about the strength of all your stolen lifelines
When all you that you need to be is right here,
Holding out your sins and your stories so clear.

Because it all came back today.
It all came back today.

All of you were holding on,
you were losing control.
Slip, slipping away now your borders are so cold
And my hands fell weak and the ones we meet,
Fell down, over in city streets,

Because it all came back today.
It all came back today.
Track Name: Charity Board
Four floors up from the charity board,

I saw a cut out of me,

And there I stood flat against the wall looking out the door,

To the busying street,

'cause everything's changing here

Oh it's changing here.

Now I've seen more than I want to see,

From the dizzying bleachers that rose up flat and strong right behind me,
They killed the highway breeze,

Now everything's moving here,

Oh it's moving here.

It seems we're alone!

Couldn't be good enough or big enough to make it my own,

Could've been a signpost,

Could've been a sailor,

A long thin boy but then I betrayed her,

Lie boy, your window's gone

And high, high, high, come back to the rest of us low

Shed you skin cause now, yeah it's time to go.

So bring with you all you want to do,

With your muscling bodies,

And your teachers bring you,

Fresh meat and you beaters too,

We'll bring the law out see,
'cause everything's moving here,

oh it's moving here.

It seems we're alone

Chorus..

Oh! we've fallen

Set my ladies and your calls are so,

Baby I need, 'cause you know, you know

You're alone, alone
Track Name: Steeps and Hollows
Because everything good fell down,

Along with our dreams that we thought would follow,

'cause we were lost,

We were lost in steeps and hollows.

And all that I knew broke down, bound by the thoughts of constant sorrow,

'cause we were gone, we were lost in steeps and hollows

And we walked down Gledden arcade, and we feel in love again.

We sang and drank in the parade and we felt like, we felt like it would never end.

Then came bodies here..
Hold you hands out my love,

We'll save all the prettiest things until tomorrow.

Because everything good fell down,

Along with our dreams that we thought would follow,

'cause we were lost,
We were lost in steeps and hollows.

And all that I knew broke down, bound by the thoughts of constant sorrow,

'cause we were gone, we were lost in steeps and hollows
Track Name: Let It All Turn Black
And you needn't feel!

Though we do these things alone,

there's always time to share in,

these honest words.

They might carry us home to where the brittle little lies live,

In honest groves

So leave now and let it all turn black

I've got that same shit crawling up my back.

Turn the lights down low,

Because honey we tried but we couldn't break the lion's hold,

On us tonight.

When I followed you home..

No! I didn't mean to pry but I couldn’t bear his hands on.

On you this time.

I'll grieve now and let it all turn black.

I've got hat same shit crawling up my back

So take me home to the colours, and the recent stones show me I had a chance to change,

But then I was lost in black.

Bury me deep, down the corner, down on bleeker street, where you had a line of believers,

Pulling at your coat tail straps,

They're coming back..
