Track Name: EVERYONE TO LOVE YOU
I CAN SEE THROUGH
THE ENVELOPE THAT HOLDS THE TRUTH
SIGNED IN GLUE;
YOUR STICKY FINGERS SHOW THE PROOF

YOU'RE THE ONE
YOU'VE GOT EVERYONE TO LOVE YOU

THEY PULL HER HAIR
THEY TEAR THE WEAKEST LIMB FROM LIMB
I'VE SEEN YOU THERE
YOUR SATISFACTION CRACKS A GRIN

YOU'RE THE ONE
YOU'VE GOT EVERYONE TO LOVE YOU
Track Name: UNDERWORLD HOTEL
I think of all the things you are
As you suck on the glowing end of a cigar
I really mean to wish you well
Down in the depths of your underworld hotel

I trust you now, if you've got it all planned out
Where did you go? Why don't we know?
In your Underworld Hotel
There's nothing left to sell

That's worth what anyone would pay
For something that they don't even understand
And Satan's only Son
Would give you love, if you reached out and touched its hand

I want to know, if you've got it all planned out
Where did you go? Why don't we know?
In your Underworld Hotel
There's nothing left to sell
Track Name: WITCHES IN A RITUAL
Witches in a Ritual
Dancing 'round and 'round
Whimsical, and cyclical
Political
Fountains flowing- problems of the people on the ground
It's magical and tragical
And miserable
Why do we seem to:

Run to the arms of the Brute

Witches in a Ritual
Never touch the ground
They tip toe on their fairy dust
And kick around
The ones that seem to:

Run to the arms of the Brute

Now if you think it's safe, and you think you got it made
Well there's a white collar rain check with your name in blood
And there's too many graves, in the name of foul play
And we'll be burying our sisters in the shallow mud
And you can call it out:

Witches in a Ritual
Dancing 'round and 'round
Whimsical, and cyclical
Political
Fountains flowing- problems of the people on the ground
It's magical and tragical
And miserable
Track Name: LONESOME CRYING EYES
You got what you want from me
I don't care now
It doesn't matter anyhow
Don't let go of what you need
It's not a punching bag
It's a hand to feed

The Strangest Couple in Love

I know you'd rather sleep alone
Like your dreams are just debris
Caught up in the ebb and flow
You know I can't pretend to be
A better man than I really am
It's an old disease
Everybody's got it now

The Strangest Couple in Love

It's no mystery how it goes
And how it ends, everyone knows

It bites hard
And it dies slow
Slow
Slow
Slow
Track Name: YOUR SHADOWED ALLEYWAYS
A slow drift on a stagnant day
It's nature's finest serenade
The whistle of two birds in love
Ruffling their feathers at the Supper Club

On Saturday she walks in the park
And you can't say "I Love You" till it's after dark
And no one ever bothered to give you a shove
Now you're growing old in a Supper Club

It's really something that you're
What I imagined to be true
The Roads of Home all lead to you

Down the line, underneath the shade
Jeffery Dahmer's drinking up his lemonade
And up among the stars, he really feels the love
In the land of the butchers and the Supper Clubs
