Track Name: Twist And Moan
Well, I always keep one ear to the ground
I always keep one ear to the ground

When you speak my name, a cold wind blows
When you speak my name, a cold wind blows

I want to watch you twist and moan
I want to watch you twist and moan

Baby, I’ve had my eye on you for some time
Baby, I’ve had my eye on you, I said, you’re going to be mine

I want to watch you twist and moan
I want to watch you twist and moan
I want to watch you twist and moan
I want to watch you twist and moan
Track Name: Damn You And The Rain
Winter wind haunts me again
I see this place, I see your face

Damn you and the cold, cold rain
To hell with this, I’ll leave tomorrow

I held you near, calmed your fears
When you left this bed you stayed in my head

Damn you and the cold, cold rain
To hell with this, I’ll leave tomorrow

Your fickle heart left me bitter and tart
Down these tracks, no looking back

Damn you and the cold, cold rain
To hell with this, I’ll leave tomorrow
Track Name: Boy
Boy, always kill them with your smile
Innocence is never below your belt 
Always, always keep your virtues hidden
Ring, ring, ring that steeple bell

I will never, I will never go away
I could never, I could never stay
I will never, I will never go away
I could never, I would never stay

Boy, I never saw the look in your eyes
It’s damned, it’s hell, it’s fire
I’ve heard the angels say, he’s the devil and he likes to play
With his forked tongue, he’s a liar
But I’d be damned if I tell you who you are
Track Name: Gravediggers
Gravediggers work all night and day
Gravediggers work all night and day
They dig up the stones to make room for our bones
Gravediggers work night and day

So you can bury me in the cold damp ground
So you can bury me in the cold damp ground
You can lay me to rest in a cedar chest
You can bury me in the cold damp ground

Silver moon
Shivering
Hellhounds
Howling

Oh, my baby play her Torricelli
My baby plays her Torricelli
She moans, she sways, to the end of days
My baby plays her Torricelli
Track Name: Demons
Demons all around
Statues turn and stare
Their bones scratch at my door
They're all around

Rustling in the wind
Speaking in tongues
Pulling at my sleeves
They're all around

Let them go
Oh Lord, let them go

Demons, in the streets
Walking beside me
Whispers in my ears
They're all around

Let them go
Oh, Lord, let them go

No, your eyes do not deceive
Do you believe?
I believe

Demons all around
Crawling in my bed
They curse and they moan
They're all around

Let them go
Oh Lord, let them go

No, your eyes do not deceive
Oh, shadows, oh
With their makeshift wings
Do you believe?
I believe
Track Name: There Will Be Times
There will be times when you leave your home
There will be times when you walk alone
There will be love that gets lost in the rain, somedays

There will be times when its hard to hold on
There will be years you wish weren't gone
You will find peace in heartache, when everyone you know has moved on

There will be time to start again
There will be time to forgive
There will be ghosts that follow you, always

There will be light at the end of the dark
There will be hope inside young hearts
There will be time to fall in love with the rain, again
Track Name: Evelyn
Evelyn, lately I've been hunting our ghosts. 
If I remember it right, it was 1995 and we were just two kids from the coast. 
For days, we watched the landscape change, followed the rails from New Orleans to Memphis. 
On our own, looking for a new home. 
Looking west 

I still have pictures of us when we were kids, I knew you then. Where have you been? 

In that dark, there was fire in our hearts, burning through our blood and our flesh. 
When morning came, there was no note to explain, the reasons you had left. 
Through the years, you've reappeared, hiding in my memory. 
Oh, Evelyn, lately I've been, hunting our ghosts. 

Then you come to me in a dream, I knew you then. Where have you been? 

I hear that train whistle blow, I knew you then. 
Along the Mississippi blue, I knew you then. 
Across the Great Western Plains, I knew you then. 
Did you ever see that Pasadena sun? I knew you then, and where have you been?
Track Name: OneByOne
Take these bones
Take this flesh
Become one
Pull the petals, count your stars
One by one by one

Life is so frail, it’s delicate, it’s green
It’s the pain in your knees
It’s the truth you confess 
It’s the tick in your chest
It’s time, it’s falling
Oh baby, I don't know the difference between Heaven and Hell
With you and me

Call me Devil
Call me snake 
Call me the Sun
Call me, curse me, whichever
One by one by one
Track Name: Dove
All these days seem to blend into one
Whether it’s under the Sun or the Moon
There will always be a shadow trailing, trailing behind

Dove, don't tell me no lie
Your song keeps me wondering
Dove, I will rest on your wire
If you let me

I’ll be with you when you take to the road
No matter how far it goes, baby, I don’t mind
I will be the train
That takes you away, that takes you home
I’ll take you home

Dove, don't tell me no lie
Your song keeps me wondering
Dove, I will rest on your wire
If you let me
Track Name: Wishing Well
Wishing well, wish me well
Throw my faith in what I can’t see
Hard to speak, hard to breath 
Where the light won’t reach

Silver and gold sinks down, down, down
Oh, an eye for the crown

Wishing well, wish me well
Throw my faith in what I can’t see
Hard to speak, hard to breath 
Where the light won’t reach
