Track Name: Backyard Voodoo
All the things that i do for you
have all started to feel like backyard voodoo
collection of items related to you
sticking needles in dolls,
rolling logs,
and drinking morning dew

All the boys in the bar
Have all done the same, you'll never believe what i saw
i saw them pouring through your trash
even the ashes of your poor grandpa
and i saw evil on the face and it was in the shape of a scar

Chicken bones are strewn
From the ceiling of your room
and brickdust is guarding the cupboard where you keep your broom
it must have been an occasion
you even wore your oxblood shoes
and i heard the legend,
about how you dyed em yourself, or didn't you?

No cause for alarm
crocodile skull in your yard,
enough to make one pause
i will do anything you say, ill be your slave
ill even be your Santa Claus
i will behave,
as long as you give me back my baseball cards

Then everything around the town got dark
and all the dogs everywhere started to bark
and that old negro woman started to yell
I know she put me under that voodoo spell
Track Name: The Seams
Starts off a feeling that's strong
late at night when you're all alone
you're by your computer, by the telephone,
but you're just listening to the dial tone

what was soft, now is hard
and you can't find yourself consciously taking part
in a world that has torn you apart
ripped you up at the seams
but that's not you
that's just me

In the night i take it to the streets,
ain't no warmth between my sheets
i'm ashamed by the people that i meet
cause they're so incomplete

all my life i could never tell,
if i was doing anything well,
now i know that the storm's about to swell, cause it's devouring me
but i know that ill be okay
as long as i could see the sea

All my life
so much strife
Track Name: Couple Weeks Time
Well i know it's going to be hard
i know its goin to be tough
I hope you got much more than all that big rich expensive kinda stuff
cause if you don't
you know you don't take that to heaven oh no
And if you did you'd probably look at it from a far oh lord
I do not even got a dime
it's been like that a couple weeks time

Well i know thats it goin to be hard
i'm told it will be tough
oh no no no
and that's why, what's gonna be much worse
when the big bad men call your bluff
cause when they do
they'll string you up cut you open show your guts to you
and make you taste what your heart pumps inside of you
I could not help but sigh
i seen it coming around for a couple weeks time

Now i'm walking real slow down the road
and any path i take
stories down there all been foretold
well the one i chose
promised fame and fortune and so much gold
but i got hollow hallucinations
concerning a life i would never be able to hold
thats it i've lost my mind
it's been like that more than a couple week time

no no
Track Name: I'm Coming for You
I wake up, break of dawn,
you've back up your dress and your books well they're gone
and you babe,
ain't been coming round,
and if they see you around, know my babe,
i'm coming for you

I wake up stumble round,
ask the old men that live in the old town,
where you live,
and why you can't be found,
and if they see her around the old town, let her know
i'm coming for you

I wake up, face is red
from the night before
when I was breaking bread,
with you,
and now you can't be found,
and if you see her around the carnival grounds
know that i'm coming for you

Quand je pense à une femme,
je pense à elle entre mes mains
but you,
can't turn around,
and if you see her around,
know babe,
i'ma coming for you

Well sometimes i'm swimming up stream,
and fixin to rest on the shore
i long for you love if you know what i mean,
would you come if i knocked on your door?
well then you say i don't think i'll be coming around anymore,
and i say thats okay that's fine, i'll find myself another whore
Track Name: If You Are Alone
If you are alone
Well I'll be the one to take you home
If you are scared
Don't be, I won't touch one of your hairs
And are you a fool?
Well pack up your bags we're leaving this school
What have you learned
From the ashes that fly from the books that you've burned?
How am I going to make it?
Sticks and stones may want to break it
It's been you, all my life
I think we can make it, if we go on and shake it
And we make love tonight

If you are alone
Well ill be the one to take you home [x2]

They said atone, for all of the nasty stuff that you did
Oh well I know, they've been harping on that since I was just a kid
How am I going to make it?
Sticks and stones may want to break it
Its been you, all my life
I think we can make it, if we go on and shake it
And we make love tonight

If you are alone
Well ill be the one to take you home [x2]


They said "get home", somebody out there must be missin' the kid
Through cities I roam, I've been learning from all the stuff that I did
Like playing the part of the jealous scar and a lonely heart
Or just playing the fool, when all of my friends said "keep it cool"
How am I going to make it?
Sticks and stones may want to break it
Its been you, all my life
I think we can make it, if we go on and shake it
And we make love tonight

If you are alone
Well ill be the one to take you home [x2]
