Track Name: Rien
Inside this cave, I found my grave
This frozen lake, Not a one to save
Last meal to find, Unravel unwind
I fall asleep, To pass, The time, To pass, The time

Outside my home, So far I've gone
Looking, To receive
The rabbits run, And I am strung along
It's food for thought, but none, for me, but none, for me

Inside this hide, Inside this mind
And now I find, Nothing

Beside this stream, A poor man's dream
No others found, Real treasures gleam
A shining stone, The sunlight shown
A golden seed, To rest, My bones, To rest, My bones

In cloudy skies, The mistress cries
But mists do block, The view of her
A troubled sound, Unraveled unwound
I sore through fog, To come, Undone, I come, Undone

And now I find nothing
(Inside this cave)
And now I find nothing
(Outside my home)
And now I find nothing
(Beside this stream)
And now I find nothing
(In cloudy skies)

And now we find nothing
Track Name: Firewater
The moonshines lost its shimmer, lost its glimmer, lost its gleam
The whiskeys lost its potency that feelin, runnin through my veins
The everclears gone cloudy, I am foggy, I am vague
But it’s time to do the laundry, and hang out these three sheets

The firewater has burned out, Ember now turned to ashNothin left but a burnin throat, and a conflagration in my head

This dog has lost all its hair its rabid it is lameI’m afraid the medicine has turned, it’s sour, it bring pain
This crime has so much proof that surely I am damned
I’m the one who hit John, I confess, I’m your man

Now I’m carrying all that beer I drank, with me round my waist
My eyes are shot with blood, and my hands they both shakeI must confess the events of last night remain a mystery
But maybe if I had another drink, It would bring me clarity
Track Name: If I Had a Heart
This will never end
'Cause I want more
More, give me more
Give me more

This will never end
'Cause I want more
More, give me more
Give me more

If I had a heart I could love you
If I had a voice I would sing
After the night when I wake up
I'll see what tomorrow brings

Ahhhhhhh Ahhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhh Ahhhhhhh
If I had a voice, I would sing

Dangling feet from window frame
Will they ever ever reach the floor?
More, give me more, give me more

Crushed and filled with all I found
Underneath and inside
Just to come around
More, give me more, give me more

Ahhhhhhh (Ahh) Ahhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhh (Ahhhh) Ahhhhhhh
If I had a voice, I would sing
Track Name: Bravest is the Knave
The King on his throne, a coward hiding behind his crown
With the courageous below
His mummers court, no better than he, the royal un-noble
Cowering beneath his seat

Bravest is the knave
Dangerous is the slave
Bravest is the knave
One day these chains will break
Then bravest is the knave

The Knight on his high horse, empowered strutting, above the town
With the courageous below
Even the headsman, hiding himself behind a hood
He deals faceless injustice

The king dethroned, hiding now in exile
With the courageous surrounding
Track Name: Honey in the Hair
I fill my mouth up with air
Honey in the hair, honey in the hair, honey in the hair
I fill my life up with time
Asleep in the vine, whiskey and wine, whiskey and wine
Who makes the winds blow, I don’t care, my eyes roll back in my head
Who makes the winds blow, I don’t care, my eyes roll back in my head
Just walking in circles, I see the lines and chalk on the ground
Just walking in circles, I see the lines and chalk on the ground

One Day this will all come down
One day this will all come crashing right down
So go on with your life, We will bring you down
Track Name: Dead Man Walking
Like Heavens winter glow
Shot my brother in the snow
Staring at me with those eyes
Staring at me with my own eyes

Dead man walking Damned walking

Further on down this road
Skin leather no longer feels cold
Think I’ve lost all of my faith
Told my son that everything is great

Like hell it could be so
Like heaven could be out there
Flee the country for a life
Flee the body for a brother’s only one he’s got

Dead country’s bird
Damned Eagle screaming
Dead Country burns
Damned eagle screaming
