Track Name: Ghost Dancing
Went down to the freak show
Watched the getaway cars role away
It's where I saw you dancing with a ghost
Down at the peep show
Their selling off the snake oil for free air
Don't ever let me hear you say
" I don't wanna live that way"

Well this lonely carousel was spinning
and the wind was blowing wild
the alkaline dripped out of time
so i went looking for some tears in her ocean
but her ocean just drowned out the cries
It's like the deaf leading the blind
No I don't wanna buy night visions of hiroshima lights
Like the dream most every night where I wake up screaming
yeah i was looking at you through me

Went down to the freak
Watched the getaway cars role away
It's where I saw you dancing with a ghost
Down at the peep show
Their selling off the snake oil for free air
Don't ever let me hear you say
" I don't wanna live that way"


Go wishing it away again
Yeah down through the snake trails and the brass reeds sunken noise
and shake hands with the middle man
while he raises his right hand
And the welcome signs to the ghost town
you went looking at them upside down
to see what midas found
while the red light side of the moon was rising
above your stolen crown

Went down to the freak show
Watched the getaway cars role away
It's where I saw you dancing with a ghost
Down at the peep show
Their selling off the snake oil for free air
Don't ever let me hear you say
" I don't wanna live that way"
Track Name: Without A Sound
Dearest JJ Miller I want to tell you a true story
A song you sing along dirt roads a song of love in the morning
A voodoo breeze through the willow trees shes nowhere to be found
She up'd and left down the gravel road of this stonequarry town
Without A Sigh
Without A Sound

A cactus collecting crown juggles spikes on her steeple thrown
he's got a rattle snake inside an old squeeze box 6 months good behaviour
bond
Well god only knows what he's done as they disappear into the crowd
Like a mariachi band lost at sea
Their gone Without A Sigh
Without A Sound

Sell your soul while you still can
This demented voice sounds familiar
It echoes through the empty heads of all the mannequins, the empty bottles, the broken mirror

So tell those see-through little girls and the evening news lobbyists
the rivers and the floating limbs i can taste them in your noble kiss
but i won't tell about the ghosts you see the night watchers of this town
When the roster crows at the break of dawn
yeah he crows with all the cross road guards that had left this place
10 million years ago now with all the night flying crowd
right over mariachi bands that were bound but drowned
Without A Sigh
Without A Sound

I heard you married a pretty Irish boy and you moved up to the palms
Where the markets strong and it's safe and warm right there in your baby's arm
Your so beautiful but i keep my ears close to your heart
Those marchi bands I hear no more they drowned
without a sigh
without a sound
Track Name: Coup
Touch the redline
Lost the rhythm
Hands off sercuity
Shoot of skyline
Smoking hand gun
Tell me where it taking me
Its been 20 years still all your shit ain't said and done
I crossed this rushing river I crossed my heart and hoped to die

There was a coup, release, a eulogy
there was a who, a when in every dead end town i've lived
I saw who stole the art of making love
I was theirs

Historizios
tastes like No Doze
There not immune to that kinda thing
Get off the phone Joan
Don't talk to me like that son
where are your crystal ball and chain
I've spend 20 years or more just trying to figure this out
wearing warts and all award for those who can never stop

There was a coup, release, a eulogy
there was a who, a when in every dead end town i've lived
I saw who stole the art of making love
I was theirs
Track Name: Stained Glass Eyes
Periscopes for dead soul never reach both sides to the shelter
The tides roll in and out of your dirty mouth, fresh sex, stench on a love that killed ya
No ambulance, no silences, just dust clouds that are televised
On your Stained Glass Eyes

Gas ya pretty little mama
Throw you cards on the table lets play one more time
And there lining up outside
rearview mirror assassin, terrified to drive
Well i cant breathe in this dirty water, with out ya
Without your Stained Glass eyes

Which do I laugh or cry?
Its insane the way we played the game
I leave before you came
Which flying North Bound
"By the way" you pay to play the game
Till it takes ya raspberry brain
I ain't afraid to die
But I'm afraid if I don't hear your broken china voice it guna kill me
Which do I laugh I cry
Rusted in the rain
Your Stained Glass Eyes
