Track Name: Wild One
Rest in the flame of the healer of angels
And the boy in the temple teaching all the old men
Then you’ll see something when the kings have all fallen
And the sword is forgotten and so is the gun

Children will teach us with colors and feelings
And show us the way to the homes we have left
For he is a wild one, a child of Heaven’s sun
Always so gentle and always so strong

Mountains of fear will have no dominion
And all will be peace when they’re cast in the sea
River of life come and tear through the city
We’ve built with our progress with wood and with steel

Oh it’s so delicate this system of ambition
The industry’s passion and the gold at the top
But where is the life and the love and the mission
The one where we lose everything and still win
Track Name: The Knife
Glowing sun your arm is long your hair is gone and your face is blinding
She was lovely when she said so long but her face looked wrong and there was something dying
Now these hands are letting go two thumbs up for the road to take me
She will say in her own little way it was all for the best it had a long time coming

See you soon my fair little moon someone told me you’ve been gambling with my sun
Over which of you two could over me rule and torture my soul try and put me on the run
Now these shoes are running thin like a thief's cold blood I can tell you I will never win
She will play in her own little way a tune on my heart like a lightning bolt striking

Cool on the bayou with your honey beside you she was holding your hand with her feet digging in the sand
I want you to know that this is all wrong and there is a song that is singing inside me
Soon it says a knife’s sharp edge will rip through the lies this is what the song cries
She responds in her own little way with a fist to the clay and a turn and a walk away
Track Name: Be Still
Be still oh be still
Oh God how can I be still
I'm so alone and I can't be still no more

Lordy oh Lordy
I'm bleeding oh I'm bleeding
I'm bleeding Lord and I ain't going out tonight

Lovers oh lovers
Be kind to one another
Cause you don't know how long they'll be around

Family oh family
I miss you more than you could know
I hope one day you'll come and see a show
Track Name: Bread and Circuses
Late one night on the edge of a ghost town
Lips were close to the cheek of an old clown
Sang so sweet like a black train southbound
Fell in love in a carousel go-round

Fiddle in your hands and I dance like an old chap
Cold to the bone and you don’t come home
Reap what you sow, and take what you don’t
Catcher in the rye won’t catch em
Let ‘em die

Oh my darling
Oh you've got the tone
Oh my darling
Oh you don't come home

Pullin’ along on my collar thing darling
Callin’ me on like a trombone marching
Calm me down if you got the nerve girl
Talk your man down don’t speak like a playtoy

Jump through the hoops and you get your turn
Who speaks truth that hasn’t burned
Where are your lovers they ain’t just your brothers
This will destroy me I will not recover

Oh my darling
Oh you've got the tone
Oh my darling
Oh you don't come home

Had enough in the fading twilight
Shook off the dust for a one man gunfight
Heard your voice farewell in a whisper
Who do you speak to my dear sister

You shut the door and turned in surprise
Took no steps but looked in my eyes
Fled the truth for a pack of lies
This is the end my love it dies

Late that night in a shoestring body bag
She lay quiet wrapped in a red rag
I followed her down with a gun in my hand
We fell to the ground and we slept in the sand

Oh my darling
Oh you've got the tone
Oh my darling
Oh you don't come home
Track Name: I'm Gonna Marry You
Come on baby come on baby I will lead you through so many places and so many faces
Come on baby I will feed and protect you or I’ll hang my head myself
Come on baby come on baby come on baby I will be your pursuer your storm and your healer
Come on baby I’m a wildcat baby and you’re lover's coming soon

Oh I’m gonna marry you

Come on baby come on baby come on baby I’m your sweetest friend and your very best enemy
I hold the key to your treasure chest but you’re not an investment and this isn’t economy
I want your heart and your love and your legs I want your pain and your joy and your very best memories
Come on baby come on baby come on baby

Oh I'm gonna marry you

I’m gonna be there standing and waiting with priest or a minister always looking sinister
The doors open and your face will be shining with a silver lining and I’ll be there crying babe
We say a vow and the words will be spoken and the doors will opened and we’ll leave as one
Come on baby come on baby come on baby won’t you dance with me won’t you dance me

Oh I'm gonna marry you

Come on baby come on baby come on baby when we’re old and decrepit and our bodies are hefty
Many moons will pass but its lasts through the darkest night and your loudest fights
I’m gonna love you till the end of our lives and the lives of our children and the lives of our childrens' kids
Come on baby come on baby come on baby I’m my lovers keeper I’m my lovers keeper I’m my lovers keeper I’m my lovers keeper I’m my lovers keeper I’m my lovers keeper I’m my lovers keeper

Oh I'm gonna marry you
Track Name: Do Unto Others
Friends hold closer than blood in the darkness
Closer than death in the garden
Licking his teeth in your face
Oh don't fall asleep on me now

Friends throw caution and scorn out the window
Bother the boys dying solo
Shake them and wake them to life
Victory and pain in hand

Shame lies in holes in the ground where you're buried
No will know who they married
Children will grow into actors
Hiding from their love in a hearse

Friends know when silence speaks loudest
When low tones fall like the sweet notes of home
Who can sleep fine knowing no one thinks of where you're going
On your own

Oh friends cry and rest in the shade with your lovers
Hand to the spade with your brothers
Lay down your life in their presence
Oh Don't fall asleep on me now
