Track Name: Deep Possession
You get a taste, you always want my love?

Will you put a fire to it,
Set a live wire to it,
Give your left eye for it,
Beg, steal, and die for it,
Will you kick down doors for it,
Crawl across the floor for it,
Give your first born for it,
Shoot a little porn for it?
Go on take the money,
Now, give it to your honey,
Come on, baby, trust me,
I said so, so it must me,
Dig a shallow grave, boy,
Make yourself a slave, boy,
Put me to the test,
You talking cardiac arrest,
You get a taste, you always want my love?
You take that shot, you're aiming for my love?
Obsession, your deep possession,
Obsession, your deep possession.

Some people pray for love,
Some people pay for love,
Some people never get enough.
Look around you at the broken frames,
Friends are going down in burning flames,
Play the game til the subtlety is lost.

Get it off your shoulder,
Hit it, like you told her,
Come on, be a soldier,
Now, circle like a vulture,
Ride it like a high priest,
Chasing down that wild beast,
Ride it like a rocket,
Eight ball in your pocket.

You get a taste, you always want my love...
You take that shot ,you're aiming for my love?
Obsession, your deep possession,
Obsession, your deep possession,
Obsession,
Obsession.
Track Name: Scary Music
No use in you always feeling down,
And your head is dragging cross the ground,
And you’ll get used to it,
It’s like a tourniquet,
Your only hope for freedom is the sound...

Well, come on and play the music,
Let’s just fall into it,
Make me your believer, tonight.
Well, I’m caught up in the spirit,
As long as I can hear it,
I know that I’ll be feeling all right.

Well, you and me,
We make scary music,
In ecstasy,
We make scary music.

When you were young you used to be so lost,
You played around, while others paid the cost.
They blew your candle out,
And now you’re filled with doubt,
Staring at the bridge that you must cross.

Well, come on and play the music,
Let’s just fall into it,
Make me your believer, tonight.
Well, I’m caught up in the spirit,
As long as I can hear it,
I know that I’ll be feeling all right.

Well, you and me,
We make scary music,
In ecstasy,
We make scary music.

You and me,
We make scary music,
In ecstasy,
We make scary music.
Track Name: Borrowed Soul
Let me choke on your spirit,
Gonna roll in your hay,
Wanna walk in your shadow,
You can call it a trade,
Gonna try all your jewelry,
And say what you say,
Lemme roll back the carpet,
And lay where you lay.
You got that taste in your mouth,
But you got nothing to say,
And the pillow you dream on,
Is still keeping your shape,
Gonna try all your things on,
And smile like you smile,
Let me roll back the covers,
And sleep for awhile.

And I?ll give to you, this borrowed soul.
And I?ll give to you, this borrowed soul,
You can call it a trade.

When we were first meeting,
You were laughing out loud,
But that soul that was yours, hon,
You lost in the crowd,
All your friends have been asking,
Where on earth did you go,
I took that laugh that was yours,
And I told ?em, ?I don?t know!?
So, get used to it, babe,
All the things that you bought,
They were never yours, they were part of the plot,
And that shadow you?re keeping,
The one you ignore,
You won?t never see it,
?Til it crosses your door..

And I?ll give to you, this borrowed soul.
And I?ll give to you, this borrowed soul,
You can call it a trade.

And I?ll give to you, this borrowed soul.
And I?ll give to you, this borrowed soul,
You can call it a trade.
Track Name: I Love You To Death
Purple, blue, red to black,
These are the colors you give back,
After a while, yellow turns to green,
A little reminder of what you mean,
Across the field, I see a light,
Sounds of wailing pierce the night,
Flaming embers light the sky,
Our love is burning, this is why...

I love you, I love you to death,
Sing to me, darling, when you draw your last breath,
Come to me sweetly, and leave me possessed,
I love you, I love you to death...

A beautiful package of sharpened knives,
A wooden box to hold your lies,
Rusty coils, a glass syringe,
The anniversary of our revenge...

I love you, I love you to death,
Sing to me, darling, when you draw your last breath,
No need to worry, no need to protest,
I love you, I love you to death...

Side by side, upon the hill,
Our bramble vine, is growing still,
Beneath the moor, and blowing heather,
The sun sets in the west, forever...

I love you, I love you to death,
Sing to me, darling, when you draw your last breath,
No need to worry, no need to protest,
I love you, I love you to death...
Track Name: I Don't Scare Easy
Gimme zombies, Ku Klux Klan,
Trigger happy policeman,
Ah, I don't scare easy.
Show me voodoo, head on stick,
Show me your black magic trick,
Ah, I don't scare easy.
Show me Valence, show me hood,
Give me carnage, make it good,
Ah, I don't scare easy.
Show me devil, all his kind,
Bring me stinky Frankenstein,
Ah, I don't scare easy.

Go on and put me on a crucifix anyday,
Gonna cut myself down now, anyway,
It don't really matter what you do or say,
I'm coming on like it's doomsday.
I'm a beat you in the head with your own gun,
You oughta shoot my ass quick, cos I'm a wild one,
You wanna lock me up and pardon Charlie Manson,
Cos I'm the wicked kid you tried to put your hands on.
You'll be wishing I was Gacy on a meth trip,
Prayin' to your messiah in my death grip,
With no bull whips, No slave ships,
I'm gonna make you feel the love with the full clip.

Oh, yo yo,
Ay, yay yay,
They no scary.
They no scary.
Oh, yo yo,
Oh, yay yay,
They no scary.
They no scary.
Track Name: Candy From A Cash Machine
I had to get a fix, but it didn't do the trick,
'Cause I couldn't get high, my blood was too thick,
And I need an operation, 'cos I'm feeling kinda sick,
My body's on the floor, and I'm sinking like a brick,
'Cos I never seen the sky from the edge of a crater,
Got my brain hooked up to the dead generator,
Coulda been a Jedi, but I had to be a Vader,
Riding through the fire in a service elevator,
Like a broken arrow, I couldn't cook it clean,
Lookin' at my life like a dirty magazine,
And it shoulda been easy, but for what I've seen,
It's hard to get candy from the cash machine.
Shoulda been easy, but from what I've seen,
It's hard to get candy from a cash machine.

Lights out- the elevator's up, there's a deal goin' down,
And I gotta get a cut,
When you roam the west side with the geezers and the creeps,
You sweat it when they call, and you see them in your sleep,
Cos, I kick 'em to the curb, but they always crawling back,
And I hear them in the alley, when they talking that smack,
So, I beat 'em with a stick, and I'm feeling like a fiend,
Running out of tricks, and it's nearly Halloween,
But, it shoulda been easy, but from what I seen,
Hard to get candy from a cash machine.
It shoulda been easy, but from all I seen,
It's hard to get candy from a cash machine.

Yesterday, I got a tip from a dirty cop,
He said we gotta cash out, so I'm closing shop,
Is there any other way? I been having my doubts,
Gimme one last deal, and I swear I'm out,
And there'll be no complications, you can go for a ride,
If it goes down easy, I'll be satisfied,
You're a trick, you're a treat,
There's no inbetween,
Tryin' to get candy from the cash machine,
You're a trick, you're a treat,
There's no inbetween,
Tryin' to get candy from the cash machine,
You're a trick, you're a treat,
There's no inbetween,
Tryin' to get candy from the cash machine.
Track Name: Darkside Of The Party
Call off the wedding,
she keeps her wounds in the church of her past,
People came from far and wide,
While the minister's off getting gassed.

I'm telling myself,
I'll be better off alone,
Look at her glow,
She's on the darkside of the party.

Across the channel,
There's an heiress in an african mask,
She's breaking bottles,
While her master is filling her glass.

Keep telling myself,
I'll be better off alone,
Look at her glow,
She's on the darkside of the party.

She leaves the hotel bar,
Her babies locked in the car,
Summer dress and cigarettes,
Looking on with deep regret.

I'm asking myself,
Is she ever coming home?
Look at her glow,
She's on the darkside of the party.
Track Name: Step Into The Light
Soldiers off to war,
Girls who live next door,
Old men and their shadows,
All will face the gallows.

Return to us, that's where you came from,
Fall into dust, that's what we're made of,
Knowing there's no hell, or heaven.
Give up the ghost, lay down your arrows,
Head to the coast, eyes on the sparrow,
Step into the light, all knowing.

Youth who wanted more,
The rich who blamed the poor,
Screen stars in their trailers,
The prisoners and the jailers.

Return to us, that's where you came from,
Fall into dust, that's what we're made of,
Knowing there's no hell, or heaven.
Give up the ghost, lay down your arrows,
Head to the coast, eyes on the sparrow,
Step into the light, all knowing, all knowing,
All knowing.

Now you know the story,
No need for your worry.

Return to us, that's where you came from,
Fall into dust, that?s what we're made of,
Knowing there's no hell, or heaven.
Give up the ghost, lay down your arrows,
Head to the coast, eyes on the sparrow,
Step into the light, all knowing, all knowing,
All knowing.
Track Name: Steady Wicked
You feel the poison in my hands,
You know I'm steady wicked.
No need to tell me, I'm your man,
You know, I'm steady wicked.

All your friends have let you down,
Call on me, and I'll come round,
I'll take you high into space,
I'm steady wicked..

Got religion in your head,
You know I'm steady wicked.
You're preaching from the book of dead,
You know, I'm steady wicked.

All your gods have let you down,
Call me up, and I'll come round,
I'll keep your soul in my case,
I'm steady wicked.
I'm so steady wicked.

Jesus weeping on the cross,
You know I'm steady wicked.
Shaking off this albatross,
You know, I'm steady wicked.

All your heroes let you down,
Call on me, and I'll come round.
Leave me the key to your place,
I'm steady wicked.
I'll take you high into space,
I'm steady wicked.
Tattoo my name on your face,
I'm steady wicked.
I'll keep your soul in my case,
I'm steady wicked,
Don't you forget it.
Track Name: Stand Your Ground
You build your walls to protect yourself from hurt,
Live off the grid with what you did, and dig your trench in dirt.

Stand your ground,
Stand your ground,
Telling the world love let you down,
Stand your ground.

You got your right to protect, you lock your door at night,
You know you won't run when they come, and you're prepared to fight.

Stand your ground,
Stand your ground,
Telling the world love let you down,
Stand your ground.

When the waters broke along the ridge,
I heard gunshots on the bridge,
Now, you won't tell me where you've been,
Notify the next of kin.

You saw the threat, no regret, you made your case airtight,
It tore a hole in your heart when you shot on sight.

Stand your ground,
Stand your ground,
Telling the world love let you down,
Stand your ground.

Stand your ground,
Stand your ground,
Telling the world love let you down,
Stand your ground,
You stand your ground.
