Track Name: Love & Bullets
Pay your dime son
See the show
the snakebite woman never dies
-

Starving hustlers in lamplit halls
seduce, bemuse, and terrify
apish children and so called normal
dusted suits and powdered monsters
who've come to point, and laugh,
and see the other side

A snakebit child smiles and lives on
with power realized, she grew to hypnotize
with opiate beauty and devil's charm
and caught between fear and wanting
the possessed possessed desire
to tame the fire behind her eyes

-
and you'll see her after midnight
dressed in scarves and jewels
where all the pain and venom couldn't
she fell to love and bullets
-

Now Evatima's poison blood
reflects her perfect face in red
she tempted hearts and fate one last time
now three lie dead
and a warm revolver
warns if cold blood calls
you would better play with snakes
than broken hearts

-
and you'll see her after midnight
dressed in scarves and jewels
where all the pain and venom couldn't
she fell to love and bullets
-
Track Name: Crow
Running barefoot through moonless forest
I burn to breath but I can't rest because
what follows surely could destroy all that it touches
and the wind cries you
you

I hold a stone of truth in my hand
and in my heart there is a fire
pursued by shadowed and nameless cavalry
who ride to reign
the fallen angels cry you
you

One way to live
no age of heroes
no shining souls and none are fearless
all under spell made to believe this
but
i hold the stone, dive down below
the crow cries you
you

-
The crow flies underwater to me
holds my eyes and cocks his head
"Some are meant for the simple life,
some are meant to run a razor's edge"
-

Never a better day to die on
because in my hear there roars a fire
I surface to face closing horizons
I tear myself apart, open my heart,
and cry you
you

-
The crow flies underwater
-
Track Name: Esmerelda
I saw you in the sunlight
You were wearing blue
I'm so in love
In love with you

Your eyes shine like the moonlight
Your lips are full and red
I'm so in love
In love with you

-

One kiss from Esmerelda
would send me gaily to my grave
I long to dream
and be with you

-
Track Name: Raised By Wolves
She was raised by wolves
sometimes it shows
like when the full moon glows
or when we make love
she howls
-

It was the thirteenth of normal
I'd worn all waiting to bone
I was dying from a thirst when I found her
her eyes glowed with knowing
my story written in blood
and in a sighing love
my curse was unwound by her

-
She was raised by wolves
sometimes it shows
like when the full moon glows
or when we make love
she howls
-

Its been forty days of midnight
I'm stronger than ever before
I've been touched by life at its source
and she's lovely
she warms in deepest winter
the deadly huntress of lore
she loves like lust unbound
and
i crave her

-
She was raised by wolves
sometimes it shows
like when the full moon glows
or when we make love
she howls
-
Track Name: Big Top
We sail into setting suns
our wake left in the mud
we who wonder are not lost
we follow what we love
our journey has just begun
poor rubes they scratch their heads
they woke up from our dreams
found their town painted red

-
No need for thanks
we enjoyed ourselves all the while
and we sail on
-

A crystal ball is cracked and glowing on the courtroom floor
the judges daughter has come with us
she's fallen for the knife-thrower
the strong-man broke the prison wall
forgot his teddy bear
and now the warden's daughter carries it everywhere

-
no harm nor foul
we give and we get even more
and we sail on
-

All along the journey
ghosts of ships on desert floors
the mermaid on our masthead
guides us safely to your shores

-
The stars they guide our brilliant lives
we keep life from being drull
the earth is covered with the tracks
of our warm and well worn souls

-
