Track Name: No Light
The machines they took over
So I packed my saddle
And headed out west to the prairie
I came to a river
And held my head under
Baptized myself in it’s glory

In the cities they’re all hypnotized
There’s no light in anyone’s eyes

I ride an old paint
Got a sack on my shoulder
Gonna find out where I came from
I want to live simple
But not simple minded
Chained to the judgement of no one

In the cities they’re all hypnotized
There’s no light in anyone’s eyes

I sleep when I’m hungry
I eat when I’m tired
At sunset I rest by the campfire
The whippoorwill moanin’
The milkweed a bloomin’
They never do cease for to inspire

In the cities they’re all hypnotized
There’s no light in anyone’s eyes

And when night has fallen
The wolves come a huntin’
An eerie moon glows on my shoulder
I talk to the trees I sing with the birds
Content in the wonder of nature

In the cities they’re all hypnotized
There’s no light in anyone’s eyes

No beast half as bad
As the parasite man
He’s poisoned the air and the water
But now his own greed
Got him down on his knees
I welcome you all to the slaughter

In the cities they’re all hypnotized
There’s no light in anyone’s eyes

No one to cry
When man do die
No one to cry
When man do die
Wah wah wah
Track Name: Unwanted
Wanted unwanted all I ever wanted
Was to be haunted by you

The pitchfork hanging in the shed
It does not shovel hay
The creaking doors into the barn
Are rotted with decay
The yoke is broke the cow is thin
The garden will not grow
This mess of mud and cursed glass
Is awful hard to hoe
Yeah oh yeah

Wanted unwanted all I ever wanted
Was to be haunted by you

I got a silver bullet here
Tattooed on my chest
Among these ugly people here
Whom do you like best?
The sound of revving motors
Really gives some folks a thrill
Me I like the sound of skulls
Rolling up a hill
Yeah oh yeah

Wanted unwanted all I ever wanted
Was to be haunted by you

I lay in bed just counting goats
High as I could get
An angel with a broken wing
Said you are not sleeping yet
So I read a book about a man
Who wished that he was dead
I laughed so hard my brain did burst
And birds flew out my head
Yeah oh yeah

Wanted unwanted all I ever wanted
Was to be haunted by you

I smashed a broken bottle
Upside my fathers jaw
Oh dear God I prayed so hard
That he would live no more
The letters you once sent me dear
Are tied with rubber bands
I sure do miss the reptile touch
Of your uncaring hands
Yeah oh yeah

Wanted unwanted all I ever wanted
Was to be haunted by you

You’re just like the rest
A rotten stain of putrid stinkin’ flesh
That’s right
You’re just like the rest
A rotten stain of putrid stinkin’ flesh
That’s what you are
Track Name: Headed Nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere

Baby baby baby
I thought you was mine
Honey honey honey
In my arms for all time
But then a handsome stranger
Bought your love for a dime

Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere

You spend your whole life
Waiting for someone to adore
A gal with an evil mind
Who knows what you are
Might as well just walk out there
In front of a car

Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere

Tell me darlin’ are you worried?
This emptiness can’t be buried

The things that mean a lot to you
Mean nothing to them
The world you created now
Is starting to dim
The life you have built you see
Is vapid and grim

Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere

If only there was someone
You could talk to at night
When you’re feeling lonely
And you can’t see no light
All the things you thought were wrong
Turns out they were right

Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere

Tell me darlin’ are you worried?
This emptiness can’t be buried

Money that you gave me
You ain’t getting it back
I don’t care your father’s heart
It had an attack
My empathy for humans
It do certainly lack

Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere

You’re acting like a cripple
With no arms and no legs
You drank all the cider
Now you’re down to the dregs
Every stupid life is crushed
Like hard boiled eggs

Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere
Pedal to the metal
And I’m headed nowhere

Tell me darlin’ are you worried?
This emptiness can’t be buried
Track Name: Sorry For Everything
I went and stole myself the devil’s heart
‘Cause mine was pulverized and crushed
Then I drank all the whiskey in this town
Still I could not get enough

And I know that it’s too late
But I’m sorry for everything

And now I’m stuck out here all by myself
It’s hard to fill the empty hours
I’d like to force some gal to stay with me
But I just haven’t got the power

And I know that it’s too late
But I’m sorry for everything

You cannot live in constant solitude
Or your mind will surely bust
The rain will fall down on your withered soul
And then your bones will start to rust

And I know that it’s too late
But I’m sorry for everything
Track Name: Hound's Bone
Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Never had I felt so all alone
Dreamin’ of a gal who doesn’t exist
Gnawin’ on an old hound’s bone
Wonderin’ how to cleanse myself
Of the darkness in my soul
Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Gnawin’ on an old hound’s bone

Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Fillin’ my gills with booze
Drinkin’ it down and chokin’ it up
Either way I lose
Wonderin’ if this pain I feel
Is what folks call the blues
Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Gnawin’ on an old hound’s bone

Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Burnin’ old pictures in the fire
Thinkin’ of the skin of a pretty young thing
And feelin’ no desire
Wonderin’ how to start again
And tryin’ to atone
Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Gnawin’ on an old hound’s bone

Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Dialin’ old numbers on the phone
Even though the line is dead
I hear a distant drone
Wonderin’ how my skull would feel
If I smashed it with a stone
Sittin’ at home on a Saturday night
Gnawin’ on an old hound’s bone
Track Name: Ten Ton Hammer
Got me a ten ton hammer
It’s gonna be my voice
Got me a ten ton hammer
Now you got no choice

You got too much money
You got too much money
Better give it to me
You got too much money
You got too much money
Better give it to me
Ain’t that sad?

Got me a ten ton hammer
For every gal who was cruel
Got me a ten ton hammer
Don’t you be no fool

You got too much honey
You got too much honey
Better give it to me
You got too much honey
You got too much honey
Better give it to me
Ain’t that sad?

Got me a ten ton hammer
Think I’ll just murder ‘em all
Got me a ten ton hammer
Oh every building must fall

You got too much ugly
You got too much ugly
Better give it to me
You got too much ugly
You got too much ugly
Better give it to me
Ain’t that sad?

Ten ton hammer
Track Name: Mysterious Things
Let’s quit foolin’ each other
Let’s quit messin’ around
Let’s wrap a man in the chains of a beast
Then hold him underwater ‘til he drown

Let’s go huntin’ for demons
Let’s follow their tracks in the snow
Let’s get a gun and shoot ‘em in the neck
Then watch their evil blood start to flow

Let’s find a farm nice and lonely
Let’s climb down the chimney if you dare
Let’s howl like dogs ‘til the moon starts to rise
And mosquitoes are thick in the air

Let’s sleep on graves in the graveyard
Let’s talk of mysterious things
Let’s walk on all fours ‘til our hands turn to claws
Forget that we ever had names

Let’s get a bell and a bible
Let’s make ‘em boldly ring
Let’s crack the skull of a man with no teeth
And see what good fortune it do bring

Let’s float up the side of a mountain
Let’s scream and cuss in the gale
Let’s beat a drum ‘til the Indians come
And see how terrible we did fail
Track Name: Evil Selfish Fool
The loneliest time of the night it is here
And I wait for your scratch on the door
It’s true you are gone you’re not coming back
And I cannot accept that no more

I know I am awful I know I deserve this
I wish I was not what I am
Evil selfish fool

Give me your money your youth and your charms
I’ll squander and piss it away
Hand me a gal whose love it is true
I’ll abuse her and it will decay

I know I am awful I know I deserve this
I wish I was not what I am
Evil selfish fool

At last I’m alone I pity myself
Though I am the cause of my pain
Always I try to blame someone else
My presence is a big ugly stain

I know I am awful I know I deserve this
I wish I was not what I am
Evil selfish fool
Track Name: No No No
I’m gonna hang you from a rope
I’m gonna take me to a picture show
I’m gonna knock on bolted doors
And I ain’t gonna be afraid no more

No no no
No no no
No no

There’s something off up in my brain
And in my jaws I feel a throbbing pain
When I’m with people I get mad
I don’t believe the rage I feel is bad

No no no
No no no
No no

I’m always dreamin’ of the past
Forever haunted by the hourglass
Let’s have a rumble at your place
I’m gonna kick the skull out of your face

No no no
No no no
No no

They make you think a certain way
You have to compromise the words you say
Man who would ever want to fit
With all them finger fuckin’ hypocrites?

No no no
No no no
No no

Oh I don’t want to sing no more
To seven demons in an empty bar
I want to live out in the wild
Be filled with strangeness like a sheltered child

No no no
No no no
No no

I don’t know
Don’t know
Track Name: Beat Your Heart
Follow me dear into the night
Wouldn’t you like to be alone?
Follow me dear into the dark
I’d sure like to beat your heart

‘Til it’s black and blue
‘Til it’s black and blue

Follow me dear into the woods
I don’t think that you could
Follow me dear into the gloom
Looks like there’s plenty of room

And it’s black and blue
It’s so black and blue

Follow me dear into the sea
What would you like to be?
Follow me dear under the waves
What use have we for graves?

They’re black and blue
They’re so black and blue
Track Name: Bones And Ivy
Choke the moon
Crush the sky
Don’t let life pass you by

Summer storm
Spring parade
March along in this charade

On a raft of bones and ivy
I sailed the Mississipp
In a pool of boiling water
I took myself a dip

Lost at night
In a maze of pine
I begged the stars to make you mine

The needles tore
My aching back
I tensed to meet the next attack

On a raft of bones and ivy
I sailed the Mississipp
In a pool of boiling water
I took myself a dip

When all life
Is no more
Listen to the silence roar

Find a hole
Twelve feet wide
Curse your birth then crawl inside

On a raft of bones and ivy
I sailed the Mississipp
In a pool of boiling water
I took myself a dip
I took myself a dip
