Track Name: Evil
Chorus

Day's gonna come where the world's on fire
Gonna change my evil ways
(x4)


Verse 1

I Awoke one sunny morning
Snow lying on the ground
A poor man did approach me, on his head he wore a crown
He told me the world was wicked
Told me the world was vein
He said a days gonna come where the world's on fire and their ain't gonna be no rain
These evil days
These evil days


Verse 2

Well Ruby prayed for Diamonds
I tell you son this ain't no lie
To her riches she clung as she held out her tongue as they fall right from the sky
To her heart there was no feeling
To herself, there was no soul
It didn't matter that she's sinning cause the money kept her living
Her eyes as black as coal
These evil days
These evil days


Chorus

A days gonna come where the world's on fire
Gonna change my evil ways
(x4)


Verse 3

There was a man by the name of Joseph
He was wanted dead or alive
Because he shot down his women and we should have saw it coming with that old Colt 45
And now that Judge was listening to every word he had to say
But we knew he was a drinker
Born with trigger fingers
Judge said put that man away
These evil days
These evil days


Chorus

A days gonna come where the world's on fire
Gonna change my evil ways
(x4)


Bridge

(I got an evil heart.)
Well you're surely living shameless
(I got an evil heart.)
While your brother's living blameless
(I got an evil heart.)
Living a life of revel
(I got an evil heart.)
Take it up with the Devil
(I got an evil heart)
You're what the heavens have forsaken
(I got an evil heart.)
While your black heart is aching
Well the evil does reside in me
Your eyes will never truly see
The wicked soul inside of me


Chorus

A days gonna come where the world's on fire
Gonna change my evil ways
(4x)
Track Name: Skeleton Key
Verse 1

And the sound in the distance
People gone in an instance
Well it seems things have changed, my dear
All my friends think me crazy. Truth be told I'm lazy
How I'm gonna miss them
I keep you your heart in my pocket
Mine in your silver locket
It don't matter what they say
And while they're smiles were all gleaming, I was too busy dreaming
Honey we've all got our demons in the end


Verse 2

After school trips all too shady
In Crowd cool kids eyes are hazy
Well I guess I was never cool enough for their crowd
Pack your bags and leave tomorrow
Turn away the heart of Sorrows
To live in the future makes for a lonely past
I find it hard to relate to you but I tried so hard to save you
Honey, it ain't that hard to find the keys to heaven


Verse 3

I haven't held your hand lately
My selfish hands are far too shaky
Well it was a bummer to see all my heroes rise and fall
I see their scoffs and pointed fingers. How their hatred it truly lingers
But there is not a fire they could light to match the passion that's in my heart
And is the air is getting colder and we're all getting older
I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't afraid
So I'll stay in denial and I'll stay here for a while
Praying to God up above you'll stay here with me
Track Name: Smile
Verse 1

Have I lost my features. I lost them in the back of my mind

With a dilated eyes playing dead looking up at the sky

With the empty hands writing nothing feeling nothing. Saying something

My tongue has rotted inside my mouth

The ideas in my mind slowly faded away


Verse 2

With the crooked teeth smiling at me sending shivers down my spine

And the ugly man looking at me crossly through the window blind

I had to search so deeply that my hands are broken and

My soul is standing beside myself

Mind body and soul has simply parted their ways
Track Name: Hollow Girl
Verse 1

These burning candles will burn out one day
Listen to the Shadows, listen what they say
Let the eyes speak let the nerves come alive
Because the mouth won't move because the words are all lies


Chorus

She's my Hollow girl ×2
Callous love, coldest smile
She's my Hollow Girl


Verse 2

Black horse. I pulled at his mane
Her pale wrists had the bluest veins
A silver spoon and the bloodiest wine
I need her Hollow love to keep my love divine


Chorus

She's my Hollow girl ×2
Callous love, coldest smile
She's my Hollow Girl


Ending bridge

Hollow girl. My Hollow girl. She's the light of my world
I need my Hollow girl more than diamonds and pearls
Track Name: Blue
Verse 1

Going down to Beale, gonna bring my Big Star
Record and turntable. I play a guitar
Hold me closer tonight babe, I'm feeling blue
My foggy mind and my rock and roll ideals
The boys all make fun of my long hair and high heels
Since when are my shoes making Headline News, man?


Chorus


Verse 2

I brought you flowers in the pouring rain
A Love Like Yours will make a man go insane
It's times like these I got nothing to lose
With your long red hair and your skin so pale
And your daddy's bound to straight up put me in jail
Name what I gotta do to prove my feelings to you


Chorus


Verse 3

One more night that we stay out late
Promise you'll be home for your mama's sake
Bottles in the back seat, babe you make me feel alive
But we drove too fast in your beat-up car
And we crashed in a ditch. I've still got a scar
Life ain't living, baby without you


Chorus


Verse 4

Going down to Beale, gonna bring my Big Star
Record and turntable. I play a guitar
Hold me closer tonight babe, I'm feeling blue
Track Name: To Dust
Verse 1

Tell me this my dear:
Is there something left to say?
Before I'm dead and gone?
Before I blow away?


Verse 2

Tell me this my love:
Have thrown this world away?
Were they all just wolves in sheep's clothing
Is this all in vain?
And all those silly dreams
Have I gone astray?
I ask you this my love:
Before I blow away


Verse 3

Now that I have grown old
Sing me Something soothing
My lungs have all but rotted
And there's no one that I'm fooling
Won't you tell my family
That I love them so?
I know that they loved and cared for me
But now the seed is sown


Verse 4

Won't you take my hand?
Because this will be the day
Could I have just one more kiss from you?
Before I blow away?
