Track Name: Candy Man
Candy Man

There's a hole
in my head tonight
like a flaw, a whisper from on high
it's cold and it's heavy
stains me whole red and silvery

CHORUS:
sending back, oh
(From the back of my head to my knuckles)

There's a school that I never went to
I could have learned maybe a trick or two
but it was cold and it was heavy
with faces bold and drunk with misery

BRIDGE:
There's the sun right in your eyes
and the seizure of your smiles
if you ever feel at home

you'll be the fiend, I'll be the hustler
you'll be the queen I'll be the hunter
like a ship caught in a storm....

You'll be the fiend, I'll be the hustler
You'll be the queen I'll be the hunter
Track Name: Better Tomorrow
She was lonely
didnt get enough of the honey
and the bruise of love
he was only
a small town boy
with a strong heart
and bored with his toys

He threw his suitcase on the train
Mama said boy you're insane
the days of careless living are over and over and over
back to you


ooh I bet you'll be better tomorrow
I bet only luck will follow

It was misty
a bitter morning
she was sweeping
the barroom floor
when he looked up
from the daily scar
to his ego
to his lucky star
she couldn't have breathed without him
and living out there on a whim
when the curtain drops there ain't no fire, fire,fire...

They threw the suitcase on the train
mama said kids you're insane
the days of careless living are over and over and over back to you

when you listen to the rain outside
let your fairies wander far and wide

oh I bet you'll be better tomorrow...
oh I bet only luck will follow...
Track Name: My Pocket
It was here, right there, right down in my pocket
but the thing with love is that you can't lock it

so I 'll save some more some years on my feelings
and I'll buy myself a new beginning

You get all heads up when you say who comes first?
And nothing when you say who can I trust?

Lost my Sally in the sunshine
You reap what you sow, you reap what you sow

Said it was here right there right down
at the bottom of my pocket
and I though it was safe but then
now everyday when I think back of the times
I should have cherished it, I should have fought for it!

You get all heads up when you say who come first?
And silence when you say who can I trust?

Lost my Sally in the sunshine
You reap what you sow, you reap what you sow....
Track Name: Lie Down Low
it's a beautiful life when a dog and a wife is all you need
and a blissful day when it turns you like
a cog in the machine

from the day that you're born till the day you die they got you
covered

not a shadow of doubt or the guts to shout the feelings you don't feel

Lie Down low, Lie down low
Lie down low, just lie down low, I won't let go, I told you so
(Up Up Up they call me Up)

it's a beautiful life when a gun and a knife is all you need

When the cut is deep and the floor is burning, you should know what I
mean

Well it nevers stops and it boils and it simmers
until you're dry and empty

And we chose the path of least resistance to the heart of the free

Stuck in limbo, stuck in limbo...
