Track Name: Blackberry Wine
Laughter from the lighthouse,
Singing from the grave,
When I beheld the Rose,
Blooming from your brain,

We held hands within ourselves,
Too shy to really touch,
Yet I could feel your soul,
And mine were interlocked,

Light was pouring through us,
Like water through a sieve,
I could see your heart,
Glowing through the ribs,

You were like a violin,
In a human form,
It was music when you moved,
Cross your bedroom floor,

Sweeter than an opium-
Infused blackberry wine,
To close my heavy eyes,
Wander through my lost time...
Track Name: Sometimes I Can Hear You Call
Sometimes I can hear you call,
Calling,
Sometimes I can hear you call,
Calling,
From so very far away,
From so very far away

Sometimes I can hear you fall,
Falling,
Sometimes I can hear you fall,
Falling,
From so very high above me,
From so very far away...

So very far,
Farther than a star,
From me,

Suddenly here, and suddenly gone...

Sometimes I can hear you call,
Calling,
Sometimes I can hear you call,
Calling,
From so very far away,
From so very far away

So very far,
Farther than a star,
From me.
Track Name: Good Man on Command
The clock strikes now,
But it's too late,
Cause I'm still then,
I am back there staring at you from afar,
I'm always there,
No matter where you are...

But who can be a good man on command?
Not I,
But I sure try,
I swear I'm nowhere near as mean inside,
You were a saintess,
For putting up with this,
All the time, oh yeah,
All the time...

Dream of you was all that I could do,
I was never one to follow through--before you.
I knew all along it was a joke,
For how could one so lovely ever love me?
I don't know.

Lost his job,
So he roughed her up,
Kicked the dog,
She said 'I'm leaving in the morning with the girls,
You can see them,
On the weekends.'

Why's it so much easier to fail,
than to succeed?
I still got weed.
O, who can be a good man on command?
Not me,
But I was free,
Oh man,
To be so free...

Think of you is more than I can do,
As I burn another spoon in my hotel room tomb.
The telephone becomes another drug,
I swear that I'll kick it,
If you pick it up.

Time for this old man to die,
I spent the coins,
Meant for my eyes--
Is that a woman or a bird upon my windowsill?
She takes me in her wings,
Sadly sings...

Who can be a good man on command?
Not you,
Only the few.
As I fall into the all-forgetful night,
She waves goodbye,
Maybe next time.
Track Name: y0y0
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
no.
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
Wrapped around your finger then thrown to the floor,
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
Wrapped around your finger then thrown to the floor,
O.

You throw me down,
I fall asleep,
Oh girl you walk me,
Just like a dog,
Until I crack,
Until my string snaps,
You will walk me,
Like a dog.

I don't wanna be your little shadow no more,
I don't wanna sit in the dark of your soul,
I don't wanna hear your silver and gold,
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
no.
I don't wanna be your little shadow no more,
I don't wanna sit in the dark of your soul,
I don't wanna hear your silver and gold,
I don't wanna be your little yoyo nomore,
no.

I share my wine,
With the weeping moon,
I put my shoes on,
To walk the dog.
I might be cracked,
For coming back,
For you to walk me,
Like a dog.

You throw me down,
I fall asleep,
Oh girl you walk me,
Just like a dog,
Until I crack,
Until my string snaps,
You will walk me,
Like a dog.
Track Name: See the Candles
I have been saved by a raven at twilight,
Awoken by wind upon harp strings at midnight,
I've spoken to the fire,
I have wept with the wine,
This loneliness we feel is real,
But kind,
This loneliness that we all feel is real,
But it is kind.

See the candles dance,
Like burning ballerinas,
On a plate of antique silver,
And a table cloth of lace...
Let us sing our songs!
Let the melodies burn dark!
Like the light beneath the doorway,
To your heart...

I have been saved by a bat-winged Angel,
I watched through the keyhole of the blood-dripping door,
Slowly she came,
With a knife and a flame,
This holiness we bear sure wears such pain,
This holiness we gotta wear,
Sure bears a lot,
of pain.

See the candles reach,
Like sinners for the heavens,
As the wine within the goblet,
Trembles to our tambourine,
Let us sing our songs!
Let the melodies burn dark!
Like the light beneath the doorway,
To your heart...

See the candles dance,
Like burning ballerinas,
On a plate of antique silver,
And a table cloth of lace...
Let us sing our songs!
Let the melodies burn dark!
Like the light beneath the doorway,
To your heart...
See the candles reach,
Like sinners for the heavens,
As the wine within the goblet,
Trembles to our tambourine,
Let us sing our songs!
Let the melodies burn dark!
Like the light beneath the doorway,
To your heart...
Track Name: Somebody Who's Already Gone
They been watching me day and night,
Seen a red laser-light between my eyes,
That's why I'm writing you by candlelight,
In case I don't make it out alive--
In case they make it look like suicide,
I'm telling you I didn't wanna die--

I'm telling you I didn't wanna die!
I'm telling you I didn't wanna die!

By the time you hear this song,
I'll just be a somebody who's already gone,
By the time you hear this song,
I'll just be a somebody who's already gone...
