Track Name: Killer Seas (Bringing Me Low)
KILLER SEAS

Well my inertia’s become vertigo
Because my mind it is moving too slow
and now I'm caught up in what I don’t know
and I’m worried that it’s starting to show
Well my blues have become indigo
and all my pockets are empty of dough
my dirty habits are starting to grow
These killer seas they are bringing me low

seas they are bringing me, seas they are bringing me
seas they are bringing me, seas they are bringing me low

In prison I’m the one who was shy
I’m not the one makes the other guys cry,
I turn a snitch for a piece of ya pie
Oh I’ll do anything cause I don’t wanna die
I’m Icarus when I’m getting too high
I feel the sun burn a hole in my eye
I’m the fox got the chicken whose sly
I like the dagger when it’s stuck in my eye

Killer Seas they are bringing me low
Killer Seas they are bringing me low
Track Name: White Flag
WHITE FLAG

Sometimes I get a feeling
Like I’ve been had
Then you come around here
waving your white flag
Sometimes I heard rumours
Like you've been bad
When I was the one
Raising the red flags

Now I’m looking in the bottom of a bottle for you
And all I can find is some treacherous truth
It’s true

There’s some hell round the corner
In my brown paper bag
My knuckles are bruised
from the night I had
There’s an aura of dread
clouding up this room
and that love we had baby
well it’s gone too soon
Now I’m looking in the bottom of a bottle for you
And all I can see is some treacherous truth
It’s true

For one last time
Ill leave my arm round your shoulder
I want to keep you warm now
as the seasons get colder
I’m down on my knees
I’m down

It seems everything I touch
just falls away
The promises I make
are never here to stay
I cant find a road
thats gonna take me home
It’s so cold out here
where we used to roam
Now I'm looking in the bottom of a bottle for you
It seems all I can find is a treacherous truth
It’s true


For one last time
I’ll leave my arm round your shoulder
I want to keep you warm now
as the seasons get colder
I’m down on my knees
I’m down

For one last time
I’ll leave my arm round your shoulder

I want to keep you warm now
as the seasons get colder
For one last time
I’ll leave my arm round your shoulder
I’m down on my knees
I’m down
Track Name: Lonely Century
LONELY CENTURY

You don’t see me anymore
How did I become invisible
When all I need’s is your eyes on me
Just a little reciprocity

Right here in the palm of my hand
I gotta list of demands you see me making these plans
Right here with the beat of the drum
I gotta business to run but we’re coming undone
Right here under the sun
I’m not afraid of ya gun, looks like the damage is done
Right here in the space of this room
seems we’re done to soon

Ohh girl won’t you walk with me
In this lonely
this lonely century
Ohh girl won’t you talk to me
In this lonely
this lonely century

Now this room is so full it’s empty
A designer wasteland around a TV
This distance between us has turned into tyranny
I sit down and write a history

Right here in the palm of my hand
I gotta list of demands you see me making these plans
Right here with the beat of the drum
I gotta business to run but we’re coming undone
Right here under the sun
I’m not afraid of ya gun, looks like the damage is done
Right here in the space of this room
seems we’re done too soon

Ohh girl won’t you walk with me
In this lonely
this lonely century
Ohh girl won’t you talk to me
In this lonely
this lonely century
Track Name: Hoarfrost
She was standing beside the hoarfost
blood dripping from her hands
A big man got rough
A little girl get tough
Now she waiting on the police van
He had a Bolo tie
and a itty bitty fry
he couldnt make the snake shake that night
so when he saw the red mist yeah he gotta surprise
cause my lady she sure can fight

And if I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way, oh lord
I'd tear that building down
I'd tear that building down
I'd burn that whole whorehouse right down to the ground

Now she standing inside the courthouse
Waiting just to plead her case
But the judge has been bought
And now my baby been caught
And now she's looking at the judgment day
Judge lazy eye
got a stomach full of rye
even pink elephants could see
that the woman in the dock with holes in her sock
should not be called guilty

And if I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way, oh lord
I'd tear that building down
I'd tear that building down
I'd tear that courthouse right down to the ground

Kneeling inside the jailhouse
Get down on her knees to pray
There's no help from above
And the girl I love
She gonna be there till her dying day
The warden is hoarding
torture and boarding
He thinks that she ain't got no bite
but if he tries his luck he gonna realize
the wrong end of her knife

And if I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way, oh lord
I'd burn this whole town down
I'd burn this whole town down
I'd burn this whole damn town
right down to the ground
