Track Name: Lost
No, I ain't going back home to you
No, I'm gonna find myself something better to do
Your voice used to send me straight to the moon
Now it's all I can do, not to strangle you

I used to love you baby
and you used to love me too

Now I don't mean a thing to you
and that leaves me feeling oh so blue
But fuck it, I ain't gonna cry no more
I've got other dreams to dream
Besides a dream of you

I used to love you baby
and you used to love me too
Track Name: Chateau
It's so funny to have been bewitched
Only to realize she's just a bitch
Now I'm as free as the wind that blows

One day she had an itch
That she scratched 'til it turned into a ditch
Now maybe it's because of the meth she put up her nose

I know what makes you tick
The mind behind them soft lips
and a heart just like a closed door

All the slaves that have been whipped
So you can sit on that chair upon which you sit
It's a shame you turned into such a chore

Why don't you take out that stick
That makes your smile look like a twitch
Instead of the joy that you pretend to know

I know I can be a prick
But that's because you make me sick
You're just a girl from the ghetto who thinks
she belongs in a chateau
Track Name: The Divine Light of Love
She sings sad songs that make me weep
She sings happy songs that make me leap
But it's the timbre of her voice that cuts me so deep

She's got a smile that's got all you beat
She's got a heart that plays for keeps
and it's the way she talks that brings me to my knees

Let the divine light of love light your way
Let it guide you past the darkest parts of the day
Let it lead you to me and I'll ease the pain
Let the divine light of love lead you my way

I've got nothing but trouble on my mind
When it comes to this girl who likes the taste of wine
I can only hope that she's the wandering kind

It's sad luck days and God's evil ways
When the sun goes down and takes her away
I can only hope that one day she'll stay

Let the divine light of love light your way
Let it guide you past the darkest parts of the day
Let it lead you to me and I'll ease the pain
Let the divine light of love lead you my way
Track Name: The Silver Thread
Death is coming from around the bend
The reaping skeleton has got two things in her hands
In one a sweet blade to cut the silver thread
and in the other a globe into which she'll gather her dead

She was a sweet sweet girl with a mind that curled
Like a snake writhing in bed
With a touch that would drive any man mad
Into a dream in which he wished they both were dead

He was a frail old man who had done just as he planned
With both feet his mind and his hands
But without his heart he was cold and lost in the dark
Crying and hoping that the suffering would soon end

Death is coming from around the bend
The reaping skeleton has got two things in her hands
In one a sweet blade to cut the silver thread
and in the other a globe into which she'll gather her dead
Track Name: Sucker Punch
Hearts were meant to be broken
and minds were meant to be bent
Dreams were meant to be stolen
and lives were meant to be spent

As I sat across from you
I wondered what it all meant
But then again I'm reminded
That none of this ever made sense

Oh, I miss you so so much
It feels like I've been sucker punched in the gut
Oh, I miss you so so much
Oh, I miss you so so much

Now I ain't one for kindness
I prefer one who can act like a cunt
It makes life a little more interesting
Besides a little drama never hurt no one

I enjoyed her sweet soft touch
I enjoyed her pussy so much
I enjoyed her midnight ramblings
and I enjoyed some other stuff

Oh, I miss you so so much
It feels like I've been sucker punched in the gut
Oh, I miss you so so much
Oh, I miss you so so much
Oh, I miss you so so much
Track Name: Lydia
Oh Lydia let us run, let us run
let us run, let us run

Oh Lydia towards the sun, towards the sun
towards the sun, towards the sun

Oh Lydia let's have fun, let's have fun
let's have fun, let's have fun

Oh Lydia let's get dumb, let's get dumb
let's get dumb, let's get dumb

Oh Lydia you are the one, you are the one
you are the one, you are the one

Oh Lydia I've come undone, I've come undone
I've come undone, I've come undone

Oh Lydia my hearts a drum, my hearts a drum
my hearts a drum, my hearts a drum

Oh Lydia please succumb, please succumb
please succumb, please succumb
Track Name: Road Rash
My baby loves to drive fast
Her lead foot on the gas
Her mind's covered in road rash

My baby makes the mad cash
Keeps me high on the hash
Together we have such a blast

Baby, I love you so
Honey Darling don't you ever go
Baby, I love you so
Honey Darling don't you ever go

My baby knows where I hide
When everything seems to collide
and I feel like I want to die

My baby can make me smile
For her I'd crawl for miles
'cause without her I feel like a lost child

Baby, I love you so
Honey Darling don't you ever go
Baby, I love you so
Honey Darling don't you ever go
Track Name: The Fool's Road
It seems I may have gotten lost along the way
Maybe I had some dues to pay
It seemed at one time I had a lot to say
Maybe I've learned that words are used in a game
that people play

At one time I thought you were here to stay
I wanted to forget that people always go away
My mind becomes heavy and all I want to do is lay
Lay low until the dark clouds roll away

But out of the dark I will come and learn how to play
Learn all the rules then throw 'em all away
and into the light I will come and here I'll stay
Where the demons don't have the courage to face the
light of the day

Now some say the fool's road is the long and hard way
and in the end he may not have anything worthy to say
So I'll take what I need and I'll throw the rest away
Into the fire 'til my sins turn to smoke than blow away
Track Name: Thick as Thieves
Darling I am all alone and I am at home
I start to dream of you so I pick up the phone
There's an electric shock that goes straight to my bones
Whenever I hear your voice take on such a lovely tone

I want you to hold me tight
I want you to love me through the night

Darling I am on my own and it chills me to the bone
To realize I can never call this place truly my home
So on this earthly plane I will continue to roam
But what a wonderful feeling to not have to go it alone

I want you to hold me tight
I want you to love me through the night

Darling when I gaze upon you in the morning light
I start to come alive, the birds all take flight
and when your lips touch mine I've known such delight
Even in the darkest corner there is a bit of light

I want you to hold me tight
I want you to love me through the night
Track Name: Two Celestial Beings of Light
Let's go out and score us some crack cocaine
We can smoke it until we break a vein
Let's go out and score us some crack cocaine
Anything to make me feel like I'm being loved again

I want to hold you down until you stop coming around
Until you stop coming around
Until you stop coming around

Let's go out and score us some crack cocaine
We can float above our worries and pains
Let's go out and score us some crack cocaine
Then we can orbit the moon and never come back here again

I want to hold you down until you stop coming around
Until you stop coming around
Until you stop coming around

Let's go out and score us some crack cocaine
We can travel beyond the Milky Way
Let's go out and score us some crack cocaine
Then we can fuck until our senses are numb again

I want to hold you down until you don't come around
