Track Name: Polly Esther
Hey tell me 'how you been Polly?
guess what! I'll be out 'fore Easter...

(over the phone you said you were supposed to wait for me...)

Things quite the same here Polly...
long sleepless nights and fever...

(over the phone you said you were supposed to wait for me...)

Hey tell me how you been Polly...
and how 'bout little Esther?

(over the field they said she dated the deputy...)


Yeah by the and of March they'll set me free!
Over the phone you said you'd wait for me!


It's been a while uh Polly...
but I'll be back by Easter!...

(over the phone you said you were supposed to wait for me...)

Things quite insane here Polly..
cheap alcohol and ether...

(over the phone you said you were supposed to wait for me...)

Hell what's going on Polly!?
and how 'bout lovely Esther??

(over the field they said you spoused the deputy...)


But on the phone you said you'd wait for me!!!...
I thought I heard you said... you'd wait for me...


I know time grows old Polly...
but I don't know if I'll ever...

(over the phone you said you were supposed to wait for me...)

love somebody else oh Polly...
yet don't even know either...

(over the phone you said you were supposed to wait for me...)

if I ever loved you Polly...
or you sweet love little sister..

(over the phone you said you were supposed to wait for me...)

Yeah by the field she said..
she'd wait for me!!!
Yeah by the field she stands...
she waits for me...

Track Name: Feed to Need
need to feel to kneel to feet
to fit to kill to need to kill
to fit to feel to kneel to feet

to feel the heat
just need to feed
just feed to need
just feel the need

to fall in love

to love to feel to fear to love
to hate to kill to love to kill
to fear to love

to feel the heat
just need to feed
just feel the need
just feed to need
Track Name: Life's a Beach...
I've done nothing but to stare
at the waves and the clouds
staring at the sun and the sea and the sky

I've seen naked bodies
running from the clouds
dreaming on the sand
and horizon stretch for miles

and done nothing but to stare
at the waves and the clouds
singing at the sun and the sea and the sky

I've seen aging bodies
lying on their shrouds
children shaping sand
and women passing by

but done nothing but to stare
at the waves and the clouds
laughing at the sun and the sea and the sky

I've seen lifeless bodies
burning on the ground
waves unshaping sand
and women kissing child

And done nothing but to stare
at the waves and the clouds
cursing at the sun and the sea and the sky

then found my aching body
crying to the sound
of the everlasting melody
of wives and children's laughs

I've done nothing but to stare
at the waves and the clouds
staring at the sun and the sea and the sky
Track Name: EverOverNever
Why does "pleasure" always rhyme with "never"
and "never" with "forever"...
while "you" and "me" would never ever fit together?
and why does "pleasure" also rhyme withe "over"?
The less is more
we could dream
ever...
Track Name: L'Amour on the Rocks
baby what good would it ever do?
what good would it do?
would it ever do?

if all I ever cared about was you

there’s no good way to say goodbye anyway
there’s no good way to say I love you

anyway

darling what good would you ever be?
what good will you be?
will you ever be?

if all you ever think about is me

there’s no good way to say goodbye anyway
there’s no good way to say I'll miss you

anyway
Track Name: Just Human
There's no meaning...
no reason no...
There's no justice...
there is no point...

You know it comes the way it goes
ain't nothing wrong
it's just human

There's no feelings...
there is no fun...
There's no relief...
there's no return...

You know it kills the way it grows
You know it's wrong
it's just you man

It's just you...
but it's human


You know it comes the way it goes
ain't nothing wrong
ain't nothing but you man
it's just human
it's just you...
Track Name: Cold Dead Dreamer
screw the world
for all I know
I’m goin’ on down
where the cold wind blows

I’m goin’ down
for all I know
just screw the world
and let the thunder roll

one
cold
dead

dreamer
Track Name: Farewell to Arms
it’s funny how
when you’re in it
it sometimes gets
so hard to live
but when you’re on
your way out
how it gets
so hard to leave

never seen as safe a place
stripped of all
for your own sake
a nameless love
a voiceless call
the higher I get
the higher the walls

I’d rather grow insane
what have i got to lose?
I’d rather burn you than love you

it’s funny how
when you’re in it
it sometimes gets…
but once you’re out
how it gets…

I’d rather burn you than love you
what have i got to lose?
I'd rather grow insane

it’s funny how
it sometimes gets
so hard to live
cause no one
ever leaves alive
so
live a lie

alright I’ll say it
once again
never seen as safe a place
stripped of all
for your own sake
a nameless love
a voiceless call
the higher I get
the higher the walls
but still I climb
to rise above
yeah
I’d rather burn you than love you
what have i got to lose?
I’ve lost my faith
I’ve lost my pride
I’ve lost my time here
I’ve lost my mind
lost all my money
I’ve lost my life

into your arms
Track Name: Oh You
I owe
I owe you
oh you

this song
Track Name: Looky Looky Yonder (Leadbelly)
"Looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder...
looky looky yonder when the sun 'done gone..

Captain can't hold them the way I do

Eddie's got a gold mine way above her knees

Looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder...
looky looky yonder when the sun 'done gone..

Well I've been walking all day long

And she's been talking, babe, all day long

Looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder...
looky looky yonder when the sun 'done gone.."
