1. Hollow Bones Pt.1

This one’s gonna help you suffer
This one’s gonna help you bleed
It’s gonna make you cry for your mother
It’s gonna question your belief

Feel the hair on the back of your neck now
Stand up like a royal guard
This one’s gonna put you in check
Like you witnessed a death in your own front yard

Your hollow bones
Oh… Your hollow bones
Oh… Your hollow bones
Oh… Your hollow bones

This one’s gonna steal your tongue
This one’s gonna bruise your heel
You’ll pick your teeth up off of the floor
Put ’em back in your mouth like it’s no big deal

I feel the heart beating in your chest now
Like the drum of a local war
You hear the knock and your legs go weak
To the devil hidden on the side of the door

Your hollow bones
Oh… Your hollow bones
Oh… Your hollow bones
Oh… Your hollow bones

2. Tied Up

Go to the dark side full moon
You shoot the apple off of my head
‘Cos your love, sweet love, is all that you put me through
And honey without it you know I’d rather be dead

I’m tied up
I’m tangled up
And I’m all wrapped up
In you

I’m tied up
I’m tangled up
And I’m all wrapped up
In you

Now that I’m neck deep in this fire
And that’s not the least of what I would do
‘Cos your love, sweet love, is all but a burning desire
And sugar you know that I burn for you

I’m tied up
Tangled up
And I’m all wrapped up
In you

I’m tied up
Tangled up
I’m all wrapped up
In you

Tied up
I’m tangled up
And I’m all wrapped up
In you

I’m tied up
I’m tangled up
Wrapped up
In you, you, you

3. Thundering Voices

Oh the pain of letting you go
Under my skin so I cut you out
Oh I wanna learn everything that I know
They were just your words coming out of my mouth

Thundering voices loud and clear
Speaking the truth for all to hear
Thundering voices loud and clear

Heartache and a wounded knee
Killing and haunting and tormenting me
Oh my blood, I wouldn’t do this
Pulling my strings just to please yourself

Thundering voices loud and clear
Speaking the truth for all to hear
Thundering voices loud and clear

Love knows no boundaries
No walls
No fence
We are all ending
No lies
No death

Thundering voices loud and clear
Speaking the truth for all to hear
Thundering voices loud and clear
Speaking the truth for all to hear
Thundering voices loud and clear
Speaking the truth for all to hear

4. Baby Boy

It’s like an oil can fire
In the middle of the street
And if you try to touch it
You’ll burn your hand and your feet

You can learn
To forget
And you won’t have regret

Said, look at the baby boy with a gun in his hand
Nobody said a thing ‘cos they think they shouldn’t have to
Hey, look at that baby boy with a gun in his hand
It’s all do as I say, no do as I do

The wolf are hungry
Come into your neighbour’s door
You draw your curtains
And lay silent on the floor

And you learn
To forget
So you won’t have regret

And here come that baby boy with a gun in his hand
Nobody says a thing ‘cos they think they shouldn’t have to
Now here come that baby boy with a gun in his hand
It’s always do as I say, never do as I do

Now look at that baby boy with a gun in his hand
Nobody says a thing ‘cos they think they shouldn’t have to
Now look at that baby boy with a gun in his hand
It’s all do as I say, never do as I do

5. Pretty Face

I come back from Montgomery
With a ring to set it all straight
But what I saw through my screen door
Is more than any man can tolerate

If I go…
If I go…
You know I’m never coming back again

If I stay…
If I stay…
I know that that whip is gonna crack again

You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face

I never thought that a memory
Would even give such an open wound
While watching him all over you
On the floor of my living room

I’ve got to go…
Got to go…
Before I let it all go to black

You wanna come?
You can come
You’ll have to do it laying there on your back

You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face

You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face

You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face
You’re just another pretty face

6. Fade Out

House is empty
Fade out slowly
Go out your own way
Go out and get what you need
For if you don’t stay
There’s nobody watching you bleed

Ghost is what you are now
Out there where no one can see you
Gone out in the dark
Somehow I could still feel you

Time is only a fear
It lives on what you will feed it
You are only a leaf
The tree is so deeply rooted

Ghost is what you are now
Out there where no one can see you
Gone out in the dark
Somehow I could still feel you

7. Black Coffee

Black coffee (ooh) is my name
Black coffee (black coffee) ooh, is my thing
Black coffee (ooh) freshly ground and fully prepared (with sugar please)
Black coffee, mmh that’s where it’s at

And I know, way back you all know since I don’t know when
See I got hungover before I was ten
You see my skin is white but my soul is black
And my hot black coffee, that’s where it’s at

(Black coffee)
Oh, that’s what I’m telling you now
(Black coffee)
That’s what I want, that’s what I need
(Black coffee)
Woah, yeah
(Black coffee)
That’s where it’s at
(Black coffee)

Let’s go to the other side of the pond

Black tea, it’s as black as it can be
Black tea (can’t compare with me) that’s right
Black tea (ooh) it’s as good as, good as it can possibly be
But it’s a cup of black coffee, that’s what a working man needs
And I wanna tell ya….

Back in America, it’s the land of the free
You can get anything you want as long as you’ve got that do re me
Well I’ve travelled far and I work like a slave
But I’m independent now, and you know I get laid
I got me a job, I built me a place
I get that little black coffee, and how good it tastes
I said a dime is all it costs back in the States
For a cup of black coffee and how good it tastes

(Black coffee)
Alright
(Black coffee)
Ah yeah
(Black coffee)
That’s what I want, don’t you hear me
(Black coffee)
To soothe my soul, got to soothe my soul
(Black coffee)
That’s what I want, it’s what I need)
(Black coffee)
It’s where it’s at, it’s where it’s at
(Black coffee)
Yeah
(Black coffee)
(It’s what I want, it’s what I need)
(Black coffee)
(It’s where it’s at, it’s where it’s at)
Yeah give it to me

(Black coffee)

Ooh ooh
Well I got something to tell you now
Like I need you to sit down and stop talking
Listen to me, listen
Don’t it make you feel good
Gonna make you feel good
Gonna make you feel good

Oh I wanna hear it from you right now
You tell me from underneath your breath
Said ah, don’t it make you feel good, yeah

The lord my creator
Who I’ll never name
To my own

In my heart in my home
In my love not for my own

With a heavy load
And I’m-a gonna show it
Not the only one
And I’m a man of god
Said I’m a man of god

I take care of children
I take care of woman
‘Cos I respect that woman
Respect that woman
And I teach my children
To do the same
To my dying breath
In god’s name
In my creator’s name

Oh my lord

A-Wakan Tanka
And hallelujah
Now Hare Krishna
Now Hare Hare

For my love for my love
For my love for my love
For my love for my love
For my love

9. All That I Want

If I could make you love me
I would not want you to
It’s you that I want
And not what I want from you

If I could help you see me
The way that I see you
Hope you like what you see
And I hope that it pleases you

I don’t care what it takes
From me to give to you
I’ll do anything that you ask me to

You’re all that I want
You’re all that I want

If you could feel my heartache
Each time you walk away
You would never leave
And I would never ask you to stay

If you could only hear me
The way I hear your voice
It would bring you to tears
And I want you to have a choice

I don’t care what it takes
From me to give to you
I’ll do anything that you ask me to

You’re all that I want
You’re all that I want

If I could make you love me
I would not want you to
It’s you that I want
And not what I want from you

If I could help you see
The way that I see you
Hope you like what you see
And I hope that I please you
