Track Name: Blackest Sunshine
I’ve been in love before.
I’m not a happy man.
Now that I’ve been ignored,
Worst timing is the best I can,

You are my blackest sunshine.
Blanket my mind and make my dead heart unwind.
You are my blackest sunshine.
We scorched the sky but will our hearts come offline?

Never felt so dark before
I’ve been to hell and back
Never lied to you once before
But you broke my heart in half

I’m throwin knives from my eyes
Yeah Tiny Tim is in for a surprise
You pulled the sun from my sky
Track Name: C.C.C.P.
They make it hard, for me to sing
Cause everybody likes the same old thing.
You do your dance
And yeah you’re holding hands
But I can’t hear in your hearts.

They come in droves, they hop along,
They shakey shake on down to Pearl and Swan.
This ain’t no CCCP
Your scene is shit to me
We do it again and again.

You rot the world
You rot our world
And after dark gets deadly
When you’re walking alone.

Elbowed out, the lowest bid
He told me when I was a little kid
Your stupid band won’t sell
And you can go to hell
I run the world in this town.

Their elders fund, to serve this lord
A shakey-shakedown but they lead the horde.
I swear they’ll die for you
And all those kids you screw
Lay down their lives for a crook.

You rot the world
You rot our world
And after dark gets deadly
When you’re walking alone.

You rot the world
You rot our world
You desecrate my world,
Oh yeah you know you do.
Track Name: Sunday Best
Don’t distress
We’ll all confess
You look your best

Do you feel
That sickening
In your chest?

What you do to me wraps me up and pulls me down.
Like weights round my feet I sink and I’m flooded with water.

Saint Paul’s burnt to the ground
They tore the playground down
The children said their prayers
As fire filled the air

Bring out your dead
The school bell tolls
Where filth is bred

Her daddy never cared
And now I’m made aware
She surely won’t be missed
When she goes and slits her wrists

Don’t act like you if
Crawled into the grave and died
We’d even cry.

What you do to me wraps me up and pulls me down.
With chains round my feet like Atlas I’m crushed by your burden
But it still gives me something to hate.

There’s a hole
That runs straight my soul.
Where the water a flow
And a breath is choked cold.

SOUL ON

SUNDAY

SUNDAY
Track Name: Little Girl
Oh, she was like a little daughter, a teen.
Closer to my brother in age,
And always trying to prove she was as old as me.
But then she broke my heart, now I’m like a little boy
Crying out in the night for my mother’s touch.

I’m not trying to mess around!

She’s just a little girl
She’s just a little girl
She’s just a little girl
She’s just a kid to me!

Oh, can’t wait till the day she live with my blood on her hands.
Pretend it wasn’t her fault and deny as much as she can.

So hard to be loved
When she love another man but you
But he’s not a man he’s a boy now
And she’s a little girl too

I had a baby girl
Her name Ali Anne
And then some half pint punk kind
He snatched her from my hands.
Track Name: Watkins Glen
I should’ve died in Watkins Glen
Sink to the bottom here I swim with all my friends
Asphyxiating; I take the last plunge to the end
You watch, I sink, I choke, you wink.
I’m gone

She was 18 out in the sun
She held my heart and said I’ll hold on till you’re at least 21.
She held it out over the edge and said
I won’t throw it over with just a simple pledge
I lost my footing and she pushed me over the ledge

I’ll drown in front of everyone

And when they see the frowning cliff
Some day they’ll say that’s where the boy
Decided to take a dip
His face forever shattered next to
Seagull drip
A languid stop for lovers on their honeymoon trip.

We made a bed without the sheets
And all that was between the place
Where or two bodies meet
Was dripping sweat and summer night and that false feeling that in our world everything was all right.

And the water is cold
And the water is deep
And I pray that for once
It will put me to sleep.

The fall was immense,
Yet she never once cried.
But will I appear as the sea-foam subsides?

I long for the days yeah where we were together
But now that you’re gone I’ll stay sleeping forever

And the water is cold
And the water is deep
And I pray that for once
It will put me to sleep

Why won’t you just let me die?
Track Name: Cranberry Juice & Battery Acid
If there was life on other earths
I’d search forever for someone just like you
All to no avail
Together we were the coolest of the cool
Maybe out in space
One day I’ll forget the times spent with our pretty little face
But when you’re oh so close,
I can’t seem to shake the fact that I still hate your guts the most.

She’ll think till she’s dead
Of all the awful things she said
She’ll drink till she’s dead
Take shots directly to the head
She’ll think till she’s dead
Of all the awful things she said
And when it’s too late she’ll crawl on back to me

Eat shit and die
Some day I’m sure that you will learn to love the taste
Cause you’re the worst there is
As if you’re the only thing roaming around.
Please give it up
Paint me by number with your blood
Now it’s time to check out
I hope you have fun in that casket where you’ll rot.

Met heart to heart in the middle of the road.
Loving like this is getting rotten, getting old.
Meet heart to heart, I’ll leave you crying in the road
Warned day and night, my dear you’ve certainly been told.

She’ll think till she’s dead
Of all the awful things she said
She’ll drink till she’s dead
Take shots directly to the head
So kids grab your guns
And shoot me in the fucking head
Cause day after day I’d so much rather just be dead
She’s strung me along and to the gallows I’ve been lead
But in the end she’ll bring flowers to my grave.
Track Name: Hazeltine Hymn
Douse the lights from downstairs.
Nothing down there dad declares.
Lock inside all our fears.
Tell the children to sleep and to wipe their tears.

Hope the noises are my brother’s slumber.
Bury my head in the covers, yeah the covers

You’re not a saint either.
This house will hide all our
Fears of the rest of the world.

Feel hair rise on your neck
And then smell that fresh cigarette
As bones turn to stone; thwart your flight,
Silent prayers that you’ll get through the night

Hope the noises are my brother’s slumber.
Bury my head in the covers, yeah the covers.
Light murmurs from my brother, and sister.
Doubt it’s them they must come from past sinners.

You’re not a saint either.
This house will hide all our
Fears of the rest of the world.
