Track Name: Weak
She said I’m gonna leave that guy, I’m gonna leave that guy, I’m gonna leave that guy for sure,

But not while I feel so weak, God damn I feel so weak.

When he came home he hit and he bit her, and he hit her some more,
Took all her money, said baby, honey, I need this to go out and score, ‘cos you’re so weak

She said I’ve got to leave that guy, I’ve got to leave that guy, I’ve got to leave him for sure,

I got to leave him yeah, I got to leave him, I got to leave him but only I feel so weak, right now I feel so weak.

He came home and he hit her and he bit her and he hit her some more,
Took all her money, said baby, honey, I need this to go out and score,
Took all her money, said baby, honey, I need this to go out and score,

And she said, I’m gonna leave that guy, I’m gonna leave him for sure,
I’m gonna burn him now, I’m gonna burn him now, gonna walk out the door,
Now I’m not weak anymore, no I’m not weak anymore.
Track Name: Mockingbird Hill
The Moon put a shadow long and still upon Mockingbird Hill
And her dreaming eyes green drew him in closer still
And their lips touched in the cold night air, holding hands against the chill
And their lips touched in the cold night air on Mockingbird Hill.

He whispered, ‘ I love you’
And the light shone from her eyes, she looked at him and said,
‘ Yeah baby, I love you too’

And the breeze on the leaves hid the steps moving in closer still
And a moth hit the lights and the shadows flickered closer still
While their lips pressed together holding tight against the night air chill
And the flickering shadows leapt and danced atop Mockingbird Hill

And the creeping shadows stopped their breath and made their hearts cold still
And they put out the light from her eyes on Mockingbird Hill.
Track Name: Gold!
Gold

When even the lowly beasts of the soil
where against us..

- I found gold

And a Hell’s plague of monkeys and rats
ripped us and bit us..

- I found gold

And the flies fell upon us fed on the blood
they sucked from us..

- I found gold

Pissed out blood from our cocks
from wounds the fish tore inside us..

- I found gold

Chorus

Pulled our bones from the fires
the cannibals had set for us..

- I found gold

From their pots we escaped then headhunters
came upon us..

- I found gold

And Pygmy blow piped darts
rained poisoned upon us

- I found gold

And a Hell’s plague of monkeys and rats
ripped us and bit us..

- I found gold

Chorus

To home with the yellow dust
A lynch mob before us..

- I found gold

To steal our blood gotten gain
From the dirt there beneath us..

- I found gold

Down in the mud and the blood gleaming
Yellow shine dust ..

- I found gold

And like a hell’s plague o’ monkeys and rats
ripped us and killed us..

- I found gold
Track Name: Lazy Town
The sun comes up, and the sun goes down,
It makes no difference to the folks, in my lazy town

I’ll tell you a story, about my lazy town,
You’ve never seen how slow some folks can move around.
I went to the barbers shop to fix up my hair,
It took them all day long to cut a bald man’s hair.

The sun comes up, and the sun goes down,
It makes no difference to the folks, in my lazy town

There’s one thing that bothers me and I don’t understand
I’d like you to explain to me, if you can
If a dead man can up and walk again and a blind man gets to see
Tell me, what keeps these people alive? Yeah, tell me.

The sun comes up, and the sun goes down,
It makes no difference to the folks, in my lazy town

I’ll tell you a story of my lazy town you ain’t seen how slow those folks do move around
I’ll tell you a story of my lazy town you ain’t seen anything as slow as those folks shuffling around.
Track Name: The House Carpenter
“Oh, will you forsake your house carpenter
and go along with me?
I’ll take you to where the grass grows green,
to the banks of the salt, salt sea.”
“Well, if I should forsake my house carpenter
and go along with thee,
What have you got to maintain me on
and keep me from poverty?”
“Six ships, six ships all out on the sea,
seven more upon dry land,
One hundred and ten all brave sailor men
will be at your command.”
She picked up her own wee babe,
kisses gave him three,
Said “Stay right here with my house carpenter
and keep him good company.
Then she putted on her rich attire,
so glorious to behold.
And as she trod along her way,
she shown like the glittering gold.
Well, they’d not been gone but about two weeks,
I know it was not three.
When this fair lady began to weep,
she wept most bitterly.
“I do not weep for my house carpenter
or for any golden store.
I do weep for my own wee babe,
who never I shall see anymore.”
Well, they’d not been gone but about three weeks,
I’m sure it was not four.
Our gallant ship sprang a leak and sank,
never to rise anymore.
One time around spun our gallant ship,
two times around spun she,
Three times around spun our gallant ship
and sank to the bottom of the sea.
Track Name: Do Right
You better do right, you got to do right, you better do right,
You better do right, turned inside out, you got to do right, you’re injured now, you better do right.

The wound in your head began to heal but it opened again when you failed
But that’s all right and that’s just fine, everything’s good in paradise

Turned inside out, you’re injured now, you better do right

The wound in your head began to heal but it opened again when you failed
But that’s all right and that’s just fine, everything’s good in paradise

Turned inside out, you’re injured now, you better do right

And when he sings the Angels spread their wings and fly
And when he cries they turn their heads, he makes them die

You better do right, you got to do right, you better do right,


The wound in your head began to heal but it opened again when you failed

Turned inside out, you’re injured now, you better do right

And when he sings the Angels spread their wings and fly
And when he cries they turn their heads, he makes them die
You better do right, you got to do right, you better do right,

The wound in your head began to heal but it opened again when you failed

And when he sings the Angels spread their wings and fly
And when he cries they turn their heads, he makes them die,
And when he sings the Angels spread their wings and fly
And when he cries they turn their heads, he makes them die
