Track Name: The Devil Walks
The reel writes me another story
About the bullets that fly through the north country
The mamas cry their lullabies
Of another black son dead tonight

The streets are mourning this morning
The sewers flood with papa's blood
And nobodies child is safe in this place
Where the devil kills for the chase

Bad news, Im the bearer of bad news
Oh Lord what we can I do
Bad News, always bringing such bad news
Oh Lord what should I do

I must admit love I am afraid
I cling to you but your far away
I’ve lost my sword, I’ve lost me shield
Dig us a well so we can be healed

The devil walks, the devil is real to me
Even as I sing I can hear him gnashing his teeth
I feel your hand I see the wall
You’ve locked him away and you will not let me fall
Track Name: Plenty
Plenty pretty women but I dont know if Im one of them
And my lover has eyes and lips for all of them
See the ground crumlbes under your feet
And the pipes break beneath the street
The spider crawls round your grave

Plenty pretty women but I dont know if Im one of them
And my lover has eyes and lips for all of them And the blade that he pulled from my back bleeds more
when Im away from him

The spider webs your smile
Drawing wrinkles for awhile
Till your woven back as a child

Plenty pretty women but I dont know if Im one of them
And my lover has eyes and lips for all of them
And the blade that he pulled from my back bleeds more
when Im away from him
And the vows that he gave unto me fade away again

The spider webs your throat
Pulling out the lies you have told
Till there spun on the corners of my home

Plenty pretty women but I don’t know if Im one of them
And my lover has eyes and lips for all of them
And the blade that he pulled from my back
Bleeds more when Im away from him
And the vows that he gave unto me fade away again
Track Name: Tree of Life
Take us to the tree of Life
It is there we’ll find our sight
No more darkness
No more lies
When we gather in the sky

The King has taken all our men
Lined up and shot 'em dead
The children walk on broken feet
They have all but what they need

The doves have fallen fast asleep
I am sleeping too it seems
All the grey did swallow you
We have lost our point of view
Track Name: No Child of My Own
Mama, oh Mama I can’t have a child of my own
I’ve already grown two little girls
that were taken from their home
I gave them all my love and it stripped away my heart
The valley between us is as wide as it is dark

Doctor, Doctor I can’t have a child of my own
I’ve already loved two little ones like they were my own
The good book had no answers and troubled their little minds
Why I was not their mother and their own mother died

Write His words on your tongue,
And walk firm in His love
Forgive what’s been done
I will hold you in the setting sun
I will hold you in the setting sun

Husband, oh husband, I can’t have a child of my own
My womb is now weeping my seed has turned to stone
I lived my life a stranger and a thief
Now I’ll blow away the sharpness of
My childless grief
Track Name: Inside the Bells
There are songs that have been sung
That burned a face into the sun
Then fell as rain on everyone faded to grey

We walked all through the night
Walked in search of guiding light
But we found it much too bright and turned away

All through out the night we search for day

Watch us imitate ourselves
Lose our minds inside the bells
And as long as we’re for sale someone will pay

It goes all along the road
All along the way
We walk blind some hold on, some go astray

All through out the night we search for day
Track Name: Lion
Your father was a gypsy man
Played guitar in a travelin’ band
You have his eyes/ You have his hands
He left you here to rule this land

And I will be your dancer
I’ll sell my soul to your stage
The movement holds the answers and the rhythm reveals the age

Evil, evil
Evil, evil
How you entertain my fate
Then the lion comes, the lion comes
To lead me on my way

Your such a sexy scented gal
You strut your skin like a pearl
You were born into an oyster shell
And on the tip of my tongue you will dwell

The earth beneath my back
The blade between my teeth
Where were you and what were they
When I was screaming out for help

The reflection of my fear
When ‘no’ could not be heard
Hopped up on the needle fire so I could be all that he desired

My lover he is a soldier
Defend me from my foes
All the men that pushed me down
Are buried in some dark hole

Evil, evil
Evil, evil
How you entertain my fate
Then the lion comes, the lion comes
To lead me on my way
Track Name: Find Your Way Home
Pop, I know you had no choice
Had to watch for yourself
Taught me not to raise my voice
Told me not to raise no hell

But you raise the speed of my heart
You raise the heat in my blood
You could raise your fist up to me
But you couldn't raise your son

You wasn't no rolling stone
A stone is something you can hold
Real quick I had to get real grown
Keep me an' mama outta the cold

Pop, I never knew ya, I hope you didn't die alone
And at the end of the day
I Hope you find your way back home

Grandpa Charlie was a giant man
Had a lion's heart
Used to pick me up in his hands
Used to watch me play ball in the park

Tellin' jokes/ kept our Christmas warm
Jet-black coffee in his cup
He never talked about the war
He turned his hearing aid off

Fifty years he made my Grandma his wife
That night he left
I know he loved us all of his life
Right up to his last breath
Charlie we were at your bedside

You did not die alone
And at the end of the day, I
I hope you find your way back home

Got some incense smoking
Got a candle burning low
Kitchen-wall clock is broken
What day it is I don't even know

I travel from city to city
What is it that I'm trying to find?
I know I can't take nothing with me
Leave it all behind

I know I done people wrong
I hope that they're alright
Gotta keep traveling on
Travel on into the night

Mama I'ma come back to you
You will not die alone
And at the end of the day
I hope I find my way back home
Track Name: Letter to a Young Poet
What happened to your head?
Who let you fall/ After I warned them all
All our minds go rotten
When we feel forgotten
By the voices we ignore

You’ll always be my brother
Flow through my blood as I wander
The sound of your voice puts me to sleep
The Lord he told me He will keep you
For the ones who love you

All your words are lost/At the broken cross
Over the orphans bed
And what happened to your head/ Who let you fall
After I warned them all

You’ll always be my brother
Flow through my blood as I wander
The sound of your voice puts me to sleep
The Lord he told me He will keep you
For the ones who love you

Oh to be a man/ No more a child
Takes a little while
Whats good to desire/ When the love you admire
Feels so wrong
Track Name: Ghost Dance
All along the prarie grass sinners pay their fines
Toil through the burs and sticks to work away their lives

A hundred Sisters line the walls/ Hands upon my eyes
Their voices reach to heaven to plead for my life

Never seen you so fearful/ Never seen you so bold
A fever from the sadness/ A fever from the cold

You can’t stop my ghost dance/ You can’t bleach my heart
I will dance in prison/ I will dance in the dark
Track Name: Bury Me (Beneath the Killin' Fields)
When my heart stops/ pumping blood
When my breath quits/ and I know that it’s real
Don’t carry me/ a-top majestic mountains
Bury me beneath the killin’ fields

When my eyes fade away
When my spirit leaves and all my sins revealed
When the funeral fire gets done burnin’
Bury me beneath the killing fields

Bury me, oh bury me/ bury me, Lord, Lord bury me
Lay my soul, lay my pride/ where my people fought and died
Bury me beneath the killin’ fields

When my days don’t come no more/ death come knocking at my door
Bury me beneath the killing fields
When you hear the death bells roar/ from a politician’s war
Bury me beneath the killing fields
When my voice no longer sounds/ and my families gather ‘round
Bury me beneath the killing fields
When my heart no longer pounds/ and the reaper’s coming down
Bury me beneath the killing fields
Where my people lived as slaves/ came and left without a name
Bury me beneath the killing fields
With the warriors that came/ lived and died upon the plains
Bury me beneath the killing fields
Track Name: Savior, O Savior
Savior, O Savior/ Come to my door
Unlock my window/ I can’t take no more
I can’t take no more
Pull me ashore

Savior, O Savior/ What is this war?
What is this freedom?/ I can’t take no more
I can’t take no more/ Pull me ashore

Savior, O Savior/ Look at your poor
Look at your hungry/ I can’t take no more
Can’t take no more/ Pull me ashore

Savior, O Savior/ I’m broken and tore
I’m restless and weary / I can’t take no more
Can’t take no more/ Pull me ashore

Savior, O Savior/ I walk through the thorns
I’ve carried my burdens but I can’t take no more
Can’t take no more/ Pull me ashore
Track Name: Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel). Used with Permission. - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
What a beautiful face I have found in this place
That is circling all around the sun
What a beautiful dream that could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet/ let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die and our ashes will fly
From the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young/ let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be in the arms of all I’m keepin’ here with me

What a curious life we have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds Anna’s ghost is all around
Hear her voice as its rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet/ how the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Oh now how I remember you/ how I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move/that make your voice so smooth and sweet
And now we keep what we don’t know/ Our secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago/ now he don’t even know his name


What a beautiful place I have found in your face
That is circling all around the sun
When we meet on a cloud I’ll be laughing out loud
I’ll be laughing with everyone I see

Can’t believe how strange it is to be anything at all
