Track Name: Aces Over Eights
It was the last night that he spent alone
A full house, but decided to fold
Cashed his chips and walked out of the game
So many years he spent lost in the race
A bigger fortune always to chase
She could see he held aces and eights

Lilah, Lilah, love in light
Lilah, Lilah, love in light

It’s like something right off of the screen
That pivotal, life-changing scene
At the crossroads of pride and need
And we watch as we’re holding our breath
Will our hero choose life or choose death
The audience always thinks they know best

Lilah, Lilah, love in light
Lilah, Lilah, love in light
Stay with me as I go

Down and round and round and spiraling out of control
In the light I can’t hide, I see aces and eights in my eyes

It takes a big man to just walk away
To see truth and admit his mistakes
To seek light at the end of the day
But not all men are so willing to change
Cannot see that their pleasure is pain
Dead Man’s Hand can bring fortune and fame

Lilah, Lilah, love in light
Lilah, Lilah, love in light
Track Name: Golden Light
Johnny bought Jenny a ticket to New York City
Cause she had never been
Spirit of adventure trapped out in Akron
Birthday number twenty-seven

Yeah, we’re all on fire tonight
Hearts in flame, burning bright
Yeah, we’re all on fire tonight
Running towards that golden light

The eve of the flight he took her out for dinner
By the bar where they both worked
His voice it shook a little, but his eyes never wavered
He spoke right from the heart

Yeah, we’re all on fire tonight
Hearts in flame, burning bright
Yeah, we’re all on fire tonight
Running towards that golden light

Now I’ve known Jenny since I passed through that city
Curling lips made me fall in love
We keep in touch cause she’s a warm-hearted woman
But I know I’m just one of the above

Jenny told Johnny it was never gonna happen
They both crashed in their separate ways
You can’t blame an honest man when all he is is trying
Nor her, if she doesn’t feel the same

Yeah, we’re all on fire tonight
Hearts in flame, burning bright
Yeah, we’re all on fire tonight
Running towards that golden light
Track Name: The Tooth & The Razor
I am the ambassador’s nightmare
I am the hysterical son
I am the elected unofficial
I am the one to outrun
Five times I’ve been caught in the trailer
And five times they have put me in jail
Last time for a look at the savior
Last time you will see me out here

I am the impossible sailor
I am the drunkest one
I am the tooth and the razor
I am the beast on the hunt

Lie down and commit to a prayer
Reach deep in your pockets for gold
Think hard on the life you were given
Look back at the lies you were told
I am here to coddle your anger
I am here to answer your call
Think not of me as a fortune of failure
Think of me as justice undone

I am the impossible sailor
I am the drunkest one
I am the tooth and the razor
I am the beast on the hunt
Track Name: All Your Stufff
Dropping it down, wipe the dust from the needle
Skin-tight jacket and a smile so evil
Ice in the glass to go down easy
Drawing the blinds to get dark and sleazy

Just give me all your stuff, it’s not enough for me
Let’s go and get it rough and make the bedsprings scream
I been waiting all this day just to filthy up this clean
So come on give me all your stuff like we were seventeen

Susie Saloon was the name that she gave out
Came into town on a bus from Greyhound
Texas she said had born and raised her
But the only thing big was her return of a favor

Just give me all your stuff, it’s not enough for me
Let’s go and get it rough and make the bedsprings scream
I been waiting all this day just to filthy up this clean
So come on give me all your stuff like we were seventeen

Ninety at night through the heat and the darkness
Eye on the road and the sweat through her sundress
Mouth on my neck I push the pedal down harder
Perfume and booze, God and Devil’s own daughter
Track Name: Warrior Chief
Bring back noise pollution
Bring back dead-eyed stares
Put your switchblade comb
In the pocket of your favorite pair
Cut those sleeves right off
Hi-tops so dirty white
Grab your cigarettes
And head to the woods tonight

Tonight, roll your thunder
And I’ll rock you to sleep
Tonight, I’m your hunter
I’m your Warrior Chief

Build that fire up
Let the flames dance through the air
See that girl in shadow
Feathering up her hair
That’s Donny Danger’s sister
He died out on old route 5
You’ll be her brother’s keeper
And keep that girl alive

Tonight, roll your thunder
And I’ll rock you to sleep
Tonight, I’m your hunter
I’m your Warrior Chief
Track Name: One More Summer
I see that it’s springtime
From the window in my room
I’ve been here since Christmas
And most my life, to be true
I don’t mind the pain now
It’s just something to which I’m used
But I still get frightened
At the love you never lose

Sirens and rain
Sound so good to me now
Cries of the city
Just life breathing out

When you came and found me
I was burning too bright to be good
Just wanted a moment
To feel like I never could
Frustration and anger
Will lead us away from the light
We dance in defiance
Shake our fists at our fleeting time

Sirens and rain
Sound so good to me now
Cries of the city
Just life breathing out
It all seems so different
After leaning so far on the edge
You’re one in a million
You’re the reason I never descend

Watching people come and go
Will I leave here, I don’t know
Keep on fighting to get

Home to see you
One more year through
One more summer
For each other

Days go on slowly
Watch the sparrows on the line
I know that I’m home now
Happy, but resigned
I saw something different
That I’d never seen before
Not just something to live with
But a reason to find joy

Sirens and rain
Sound so good to me now
Cries of the city
Just life breathing out
It all seems so different
After leaning so far on the edge
You’re one in a million
You’re the reason I never descend

I’ll get home to see you
One more year through
One more summer
For each other

Home to see you
One more year through
One more summer
For each other
Track Name: Garden Of Our Love
What gets said in passing may come true
So watch your tongue my darling, they’re out for you
Bloody beasts in the morning and devil at night
I’ll try my best to protect you, but fail, I might

Your armor is strong for a lady as pretty as you
But their swords are shining and burning blue
So take the old roads, your legs are strong
I’ll stay right here in the trenches for the battle will be long

I stagger blind through the forest, my wounds are deep
I know these roads in my soul and seen in sleep
I wandered years through the mountains, I prayed above
That I will find you golden in the garden of our love
Track Name: Forces Of Evil
Every time I turn around
I forget where I’m supposed to be
Feel like an animal
Took the bait now the poison runs free
Burns so incredible
An improbable black magickry
Hunt the impossible
Won’t give up until I feed

The forces of evil won’t drive me away
I welcome them in and I show them their place
The forces of evil will soon have their day
I give them a voice and they lead me to prey

More than a medical
I follow signs from the seas
The driver is terrible
Pushing forward at panic speeds
In love with the dangerous
Need it more than can be seen
Deep in the marrow holds
And every fiber fit to bleed

The forces of evil won’t drive me away
I welcome them in and I show them their place
The forces of evil will soon have their day
I give them a voice and they lead me to prey
Track Name: Pushing Metal To Bone
The city beats from my window
My fist pumps with its tempo
The heat it reaches crescendo
I hit the street I can’t take no more
I know she’s out there searching

She’s driving alone, pushing metal to bone
She’s got to know that she’s killing me
She got nowhere to go, but she keeps on that road
She gotta know that she’s killing me
Don’t want to see her in heaven

I walk the beach in the moonlight
I search the bars down the boulevard
And all the motels at midnight
I watch the broken people come and go
I know she could be one of them

She’s driving alone, pushing metal to bone
She’s got to know that she’s killing me
She got nowhere to go, but she keeps on that road
She gotta know that she’s killing me

She was the sweetest of angels
She got a taste and she flew away
I know she’s out there somewhere

She’s driving alone, pushing metal to bone
She’s got to know that she’s killing me
She got nowhere to go, but she keeps on that road
She gotta know that she’s killing me

Don’t wanna see her heaven
No, I can’t see her in heaven
I need to see her tonight
Track Name: Arrow
The pure of heart will always be the first to fall
The archer’s bow, drawn for such a noble cause
We will never be alone tonight
Under same small moon
And we are never coming home tonight
A castle full of empty rooms

Lady walks alone beneath the graying bower
Shadows pool and spill between the sleeping flowers
We will never be alone tonight
Under same small moon
And we are never coming home tonight
A castle full of empty rooms

Long live the Bowman
Long may he thrive
Strong be his shoulder
Keen be his eye
True be his arrow
Far may they fly
Owed be their purpose
Fell be their cry

Strength be in allies
Yet too few are we
Cities stretch like spiders
All arms to the sea

Where be the eagle?
Where be the wolf?
Driven forth like captives
Forced to leave this earth
All hear their sorrow
In every dying breeze
May the arrow find you
Begging for release
