DEVIL and ANGEL

Lord where I wander
don’t nobody know
devil and angel
everywhere I go
who’s walkin beside me
shadow or ghost
devil and angel
or heavenly host
you left me hangin
twist in the wind
had to hold my breath
til someone cut me down
and then
I turned into a heathen v
anished in the crowd
had to resist the temptation
to be thinkin out loud
sun on my shoulder
burns like memories
devil and angel
followin me
devil and angel
everywhere I go

Lyrics

SWEET FORGIVENESS

you can look
and never find
only time can tell
who will be calling

and mercy comes
when the sun goes down
and time
is falling

sweet forgiveness
lay down by my side
take this burden
from my dreams
that wait
to be satisfied

it’s a long
way down
from the mountainside
to the beginning
and no body knows
where mercy goes
til the last chance
comes in

and

sweet forgiveness
takes you by the hand
leads you cross
the river wide
up onto the golden sand

sweet forgiveness
last down by my side
take this burden
from my dreams
that wait
to be satisfied

Ghost Of A Radio

ghost of a radio
stuck on satisfaction
step out of a dream and
I don’t wanna go back in
midnight of a stolen day
gambler rolls on feet of clay
sinner all who’s left to pray
for the secret runaway’s salvation
earthquake world
starts to buck and crack
feel like I’m walking down the street
got a bullseye on my back
rusted veil that once was new
to the lying eyes nobody knew
could only speak of what was true
temptation
ghost of a radio
stuck on satisfaction
step out of a dream and
ghost of a radio
see that girl dancin
like to shake her hips
to the new sound
of the apocalypse
oh yeah
broadcast off a ship of fools
diamond crimes and golden rules

philosophers that cast their jewels
before the summer’s heated blacktop cools
supernova turnin
into a black hole
check in the overhead and
don’t forget your soul
memories of jasmine stones
buried under frozen bones
love volcano cinder cones
seen by no one’s eyes in tones
see that girl dancin
like to shake her hips
to the new sound
of the apocalypse
I can’t get no
sound like somebody callin
somethin bout it so appallin
how the towers are all fallin
how they used to have it all and
broadcast off a ship of fools
diamond crimes and golden rules
philosophers that cast their jewels
before the summer’s heated blacktop cools
see that girl dancin
like to shake her hips
to the new sound
of the apocalypse
broadcast off a ship of fools
diamond crimes and golden rules

philosophers that cast their jewels
before the summer’s heated blacktop cools

Lyrics

Where My Body Sleeps

your head on
my pillow
and all you try to keep
fading
as soon as
superstition weeps
I’m goin back to New Orleans
where my body sleeps
we live in
the shadows
by the waters deep
and wake in
the moonlight
and pray my soul to keep
til I get back to new Orleans
where my body sleeps
you ready
til I get to New Orleans
where my body sleeps
you ready

PARTNER

would you ever be my partner in crime I got the
idea you got the dime
all the way around all the way around all the
way around this world
whose crucifixion one last dime a double vision
of your life in crime
all the way around all the way around all the
way around this world
wonder would you be my partner in crime I got
the idea you got the dime
all the way around all the way around all the
way around this world

Lyrics

DON’T LET IT DRAG YOU DOWN

dream of heaven
wake up on earth
surrounded by dreams
and pillars of salt
when you get up
and look around
when you get way up
and look around
and see
that you lost more than you found

no no no no
don’t let it drag
no no no no
don’t let it drag
no don’t let it drag you down
time’s on fire
can’t see it burn
run like a refugee
in streets of gold
when your beatin heart
the only sound
when your beatin heart
the only sound
no don’t let it drag you down

Lyrics

BUT YOU STILL KNOW

riding high in a helium soul
pullin a dream out of a hole
walkin barefoot over a bed of flames
talkin tongues callin all your names
blind magician on the radio
wind me up and let me go
cyclone spinning in your brain
sunrise in a kingdom of rain
highway eyes floatin stones
climbin a mountain of invisible bones
the invisible you everywhere I go
wipe out my tracks but you still know
