Track Name: Death Head
maybe there's nothing from to hide with my baby by my side, but lately he sleeps with us at night with his scythe inside my mind. and he don't want my money, no, he don't want my money, no, he don't want my money, no. she says it's nothin, go to bed, but there's no sleeping with death head. cause he tells you who he's met and when he's through, say's "i'll see you when i do, yeah, i'll see you when i do." and he don't want my money, no, he don't want my money, no, he don't want my money, no.
oh, let it all burn down, on and on in an organ sound. when he shows, and there's nowhere else to go, he don't want my money, no.
Track Name: Need You
love has gotta go away, but maybe i can stay right here sleeping in the palisades alone, with you. i don't wanna ever change, but even after all the years i'm still being born. i don't wanna say "i don't wanna go." i don't wanna say that i need you. saw you just the other day. city full of older nows, faces that i'll never shake or know to lose. well, everybody's gotta go; new kid with a special shine. and i can't hope alone for you to turn back home. i don't wanna say "i don't wanna go." i don't wanna say that i need you.

i don't want to but i need to, now more than i was before. i don't want to, but i need to carry me, my life, to more. i don't want you but i need you, now more than i have before. yeah, i don't want you but i need you now. i don't wanna say "i don't wanna go." i don't wanna say that i need you. i don't wanna say "i don't wanna go."
Track Name: Forever
stones throw out by the barn low. i can't even find you, i can't even know you wear it all. fine line crossed by the wind tine. caught you when you're crying, everybody trying on your dress. and i can't even find you when you run right back to the arms of another man. spin right back to the surface to find that we were steeped in bitterness. ready for the blast, we could last forever. slow down, just let the wind out. everybody's trying to rewind it all again. and i can't even find you when you run right back to the arms of another man. spin right back to the surface to find that we were steeped in bitterness. ready for the blast, we could last forever.
Track Name: Flash Flood
my picture frames are busted, holding onto ghosts. the friends i used to talk to the most. and so what? cause i've got you. you're my last love. yeah i've got you, you're my flash flood. blue jeans all full of roses, petals meant for books. pressed inside my pocket, overlooked. and so what? cause i've got you. you're my last love. yeah i've got you.

well, the water taught me one thing: that it all fades blue to black. the good sinks to the bottom and the lies come floating back. and everything is nothing and we're somewhere in between the good, the bad, the ugly, and the mean. and so what? cause i've got you. you're my last love. yeah i've got you, you're my flash flood.
Track Name: Lavender
tell me your mind's on the moon. i'll believe anything deep in the night. tell me my love's in your way as i'm falling asleep and i won't remember this. lavender in her dress, surrounding, pattern pressed in her hand. lavender, let her dance beside me, til i slumber at last. wake me if i begin dreaming. i can't believe i've forgotten the smell. don't worry much about seeming alright. in fact, don't worry about anything. lavender in her dress, surrounding, pattern pressed in her hand. lavender, let her dance beside me, til i slumber at last in the lavender.
Track Name: On Berlin
i awoke from a dream in which i'd been asleep, all the color and fiction of your broken ambition in a city of light and a season of sound. i don't know why you build it up if you're just gonna tear it down. but i'm on berlin, where our hearts collided. on berlin, where our paths divided. on berlin, such a lonely flight but i'm on berlin tonight. are you on the other side? i awoke from a dream in which i'd been asleep. she stood there before me, she said "i can save you." so i carried the light to a tower in sight. something here for to tell you, dear, if you'd wait for me through the night. but i'm on berlin, where our hearts collided. on berlin, where our paths divided. on berlin, such a lonely flight but i'm on berlin tonight. are you on the other side?
Track Name: The Dark Red Waltz
i know babe, you've been sleeping for a while, but you look fine. you look fine. follow me. there's a ballroom in the yard, between the house side and the pine. c'mon now, gown a'flowin. nightbirds sing the dark red waltz. on and on, forever. on and on, forever. hold me close til morning comes. hope is drawn out long in her song; moonlit lies of a sunrise. fate is spun in the dew-grass like a web, three step led, three step led. c'mon now, gown a'flowin. dance me in, to the dark red waltz. on and on, forever. on and on, forever. hold me close til morning comes.
Track Name: Paper Dove
paper dove, don't worry in your paper cage. cause paper love, though hurried, can be folded and unfolded straight back where it came from, straight back how it was before it was love from a paper dove. paper dove don't worry; i am older now. i have no use for fury, see, i am folded and unfolded straight back where i came from, straight back how I was before I was in love with a paper dove.
