Track Name: One For The Money
One for the money
Two to make it grow
Three is how it started
So shut up, I'll letcha know
I see the people coming down
While I'm clawing my way up
See them look me in the eyes
And I feel it in my gut

What I do, you know I do it for free
I throw my voice around town
Sounding mad as can be
Contract killer, you're the victim for sure
I'm a whore
I'm a whore
I'm a whore

One for the money
So they can stay alive
From their corporate funded canopies
Dropping us like flies
Trimming perfect hedges
With clippers made of lies
Like defendants in the courtroom
With lousy alibis

If you ain't sellin' records
You ain't talkin' to me
I've got a 100k advance and a studio fee
Sign to an Indie or check DIY
Nice try
Nice try
Nice try

One for the money
Two to make it grow
Back at square one
But that's just how it goes
See the people coming down
To join me in my rut
See them look me in eyes
And I feel it my gut

What I do, you know I do it for free
I throw my voice around town
Sounding mad as can be
Contract killer, you're the victim for sure
I'm a whore
I'm a whore
I'm a whore
Track Name: All That I Want
Every night I stay awake with the flies
Flask in my pocket ‘cause my mouth’s always dry
Sittin’ and thinkin’ could this really be all that I’ve got?
‘Cause it’s all that I want

Time is of the essence
When you’re knockin’ on death’s door
Somewhere up around the bend
There’s somethin’ else in store
There’s somethin’ else in store

Time is just a number
When there’s so much life to live
A stranger in strange land
Always gets back what he gives
Yeah, he always gets back what he gives

Every night I stay awake with the flies
Flask in my pocket ‘cause my mouth’s always dry
Sittin’ and thinkin’ could this really be all that I’ve got?
‘Cause it’s all that I want

Time is but an enemy
Consuming all my friends
But I got the black cap blues inside of me
Hope this feeling never ends

Stuck in this place
With a smile on my face
Flask still in my pocket
Mother Nature’s disgrace
Sittin’ and thinkin’ could this really be all that I’ve got?
Well, it’s all that I want

Every night I stay awake with the flies
Flask in my pocket ‘cause my mouth’s always dry
Sittin’ and thinkin’ could this really be all that I’ve got?
‘Cause it’s all that I want
Track Name: The Oldest Crow
Have you seen the one they call
The oldest crow
Walks alone outside the walls
Of heart and home
Sidewalks oblivious to tone
The stranger swallows whole
Sidewalks without a single soul
The stranger swallows whole

Tell me your weapon of choice
And I’ll provide you with a melody
Tell your weapon of choice
And I’ll provide you with a melody

Tell me your weapon of choice
And I’ll provide you with a melody
Tell me your weapon choice
And I’ll help you touch the sun

You’ll never keep me down
You’ll never keep me

I have seen the one they call
The oldest crow
Sits alone on the curb
With his guitar
He strums a song that I know
With no voice to call his own
He strums a song for every soul
With no voice to call his own

Tell me your weapon of choice
And I’ll provide you with a melody
Tell me your weapon of choice
And I’ll help you touch the sun

Tell me your weapon of choice
And I’ll provide you with a melody

And as the ships sailed in
From the milky seas
They brought good news of a world
Completely free of disease
All your letters in the sand
Just don’t heal me like your hand
Inside your eyes, I see your mother’s
So cry to me
In this futuristic place
Devoid of sympathy
Maybe we can pack up our stuff
Maybe we’ll run away
We’re gonna run away
Track Name: Cemetery Mary
To those who say she don’t exist
Well, there she lays
Right next to the gravestones through the cemetery gates
She always played the victim but this time she’s too late
Her re-animated sisters have come to take her away
She said, No way, I’m too young to die
I have no friends, I came out here to cry
There’s nothing left, won’t you spare my life?
Show us the way to those who cause your plight

Eyes on the prize and she’s coming for you
For your brother and your sister
And your little dog too

They marched into the schoolyard
Down the corridors
To hide out in the closets
Under the classroom floors
Patiently waiting for the morning to come
With an undead campaign below the boards
When the day finally came
She smiled wide
Playing on the fears they all tried to hide
She stepped up on the table, “You’ll all pay this time!”
A vengeful motorcade ensured her place in time

Eyes on the prize and she’s coming for you
For your brother and your sister
And your little dog too
Track Name: Shadowman
One cold night I asked myself
How far will you go?
To rise above the wayward ones
And find the fire in your soul
Out of sight and out of mind
I lie awake in bed
A figure stood outside my door
Looked me up and down and he said

Let me live
Let me love
Let me breathe
With the stars above

Those stars don’t shine for fools like you
Let me take a number and I’ll pass on through
Anger flows where deceit runs dry
I’ll be hitting 27 as I kiss the sky

Shadowman

Voices crawl inside my head
Won’t they ever leave?
Every word they ever said
Hanging over me

Shadowman

Let me live
Let me love
Let me breathe
With the stars above

And he said here I stand to make you think
So lift up your heart and put down your drink
The river flows where the end is nigh
I wanna see it all before I die

Voices crawl inside my head
Won’t they ever leave?
Every word they ever said
Hanging over me

Shadowman
Track Name: Litany Against Fear
I must not fear
Fear is the mind killer
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration
I will face my fear
I permit it to pass over me and through me
And when it has gone past
I will turn the inner eye to see its path
When the fear has gone, there will be nothing
Only I will remain
