Track Name: Bleeding Gold
Tombstone Harts burning Cadillac oil. Buried alive in the midnight soil. We're not crazy, we're just Bleeding Gold.
Thought I heard the Angels whispering slow. Talk about the enigmatic Human Soul. Forever come together. They just crack the door.
This Vicious circle is getting old. We're not Crazy We're just Bleeding Gold
We're Bleeding Gold.
Solo

Drunken Godzilla sipping brandy wine. Suckin on a Honda and doing Fine.
She gets down to the sound of Thundering Rage.
Take another sip from the Guilded Cage. These words are over better flip the page. We're like air moving through a pressure gauge.
This Vicious circle is getting old. We're not Crazy........... We're just Bleeding Gold. 2x We're Bleeding Gold.
3x We're Bleeding Gold. We're Bleeding. (whisper)
Track Name: Lost (In the Details)
Portrait of the claustrophobe denial acetate. Corporal punished by the Human disease...Over and over.
Jesus , Einstein add a swami , Authenticate a dream.
Over clover genetic roamer sneeze, God Bless you, and you're...
3x Lost, LOST! Lost in the Details.
Every Single Day.

Dramamine and the Human Scene Tied in a constant Knot. Nauseated by the motion sickness of life. We Need Saving!
Coming down from the un-high noun and the fractionary sound. Divided silence is impossible to hear. My ears are bleeding. and you're...
3x Lost, LOST! Lost in the Details.
4x Every single day.
4x You're Lost.

"Breakdown ~ Rock-out"

3x Lost, LOST! Lost in the Details.
3x Every single day.
Track Name: Love It So
Got a smashing feeling. Boiling in from the outside. Tea Kettle explosion,..And you know I Love It So
Here's a swivel step you... throw into a back-beat. It's a mashed potato.. And
2x And you know I Love It So. And you know I Love It So.

Is this the inside? Of all your outsides. Is this forever? Exposing never.
Got your goat. Don't you see. Grab and go for exactacy.

Got rockets launching. Dope-amine in orbit. Nothing left that's dormant. And you know I Love You So.
Firearms in escrow. Banging on the piano. Double down your ammo and 4x And you know I Love You So. And you know I Love You So.
Track Name: Dawn
Black so black it's kind of impossible. The sound of attack and they drive you to the hospital.
What's wrong with what's right? Saved by the passion from your appetite.
You count your stack and you give it all away... without a sound. Laying here on the ground. Can you feel it turning darkness.. into..DAWN?

Ask a silly question give a silly reply. Sail around the Horn like a Capt. Blye.
Square it away, there's a storm coming in. Ragging on your hart and burning on sin. You count your stack then you give it all away .. without a sound.. laying here on the ground. Can you feel it turning darkness.. into.. DAWN?

2X Turning all your darkness into DAWN. Turning all your darkness into everlasting DAWN.

2X Turning all your darkness into DAWN. Turning all your darkness into everlasting DAWN.
Track Name: Wake Up & Go to Sleep
Gonna head out as I get to bed. A thorn in your side as I swallow my meds. Ring shank nails that are in to deep. 2x Wake Up & Go to Sleep.

Ambien pill and a Jack & Coke. Gonna Black out and go for broke. It's the best time to be a creep. 2x Wake up & go to sleep.

Hair-line trigger in your dreamlike state. A puppet for the demons cause you threw 'em the bait. I think this song needs a bleep.

3x Wake up and go to sleep. Wake up and go to sleep. Commit the bodies to the deep. You're gonna wake up and go to sleep.
Track Name: Stop on a Dime
You talk a big game and you move so sweet. Welcome to the bump and grind. Pearl cut feet from the southern elite. Swinging from the cosmic vine.
Oh I know. Oh you make me stop on a Dime. You make me stop on a Dime. Stop on a Dime.

Turn off your phones. Undo the chain. Let go of your Earthly bounds. Got to get down to the eternal now. Give in to the peace that surrounds.
Oh I Know. Oh you make me stop on a Dime. 2x You Make me stop on a Dime. Stop on a Dime. 4x Stop on a dime. Stop!
You make me stop on a Dime!
Track Name: Trench Gun
Coming down in a ball of flames. Pull the cord and the earth remains.
Breech through the tear in the sky. You at peace right before you die.

They will never take us alive. Trench Gun and maybe we will survive.
They will never ever take us alive. Trench Gun and maybe will survive.

Dillinger and Crazy Horse. Strung together on a desperate course.
Brave up and straight and true. Stick together like human glue.

They will never take us alive. Trench Gun and maybe we will survive.
They will never ever take us alive. Trench Gun and maybe will survive.

True nature bout the plights of sin. Long legs and a bottle of Gin.
Struck upon Cain's head at first, from the start we began to thirst.

They will never take us alive. Trench Gun and maybe we will survive.
They will never ever take us alive. Trench Gun and maybe will survive.

2x Trench Gun. 2x Maybe Baby Trench Gun.
Track Name: Nothing to Fear
Oh dear God where have we gone wrong? or was it perfect all along?
What seems forever is a blink in time take notice at the end of this rhyme.

Got a feeling it's all the same. Everybody is deranged. And I know that it's perfectly clear, I said it's perfectly clear. You Got Nothing To Fear.

Please consider all your problems solved ,Like they never existed at all.
Keep in mind we are what we choose. Possibilities can never lose.

Got a feeling it's all the same. Everybody is deranged. And I know that it's perfectly clear, I said it's perfectly clear. You Got Nothing To Fear.

4x Nothing to Fear.
