Track Name: Black Rose
Cry, baby, cry
Over my garden
You know you grow your own
Lay, lady, lay
Under my bed
You know I'll grow my own

Don't let him know
Don't let it show
You reap what you sow
Take this black rose

Stay, lady, stay
Cross my back door
You know you grow your own
Pray, baby, pray
Over our sins
And oh, we'll grow our own

Don't let him know
Don't let it show
You reap what you sow
Take this black rose

Pull, baby, pull
Plant your good deeds
And oh, you grow your own
And crawl, baby, crawl
And fall on your knees
And oh, I'll grow my own

Don't let him know
Don't let it show
You reap what you sow
Take this black rose
My black rose
Track Name: Devil's Flesh & Bones
There you saw a dirty one, dirty one
Thought you caught a curly one, curly one
Devil's flesh and bones
Catch him if you can

Big boy blue- he ran away, ran away
Find him on a brighter day, brighter day
Leave it on the line
And then he'll understand

When all is left to you
No one coming through
Oh, what's a girl to do?
If the will demands
A sudden change of plan
You catch him if you can

Feel your heart freeze over
Feel your cold steel soldier
Leave him out to dry
And find another man
You try to bring it back- you don't
You try to find a snag- you won't
We're all flesh and bones
So catch me if you can

When all is left to you
No one coming through
Oh, what's a girl to do?
If the will demands
A sudden change of plan
You catch him if you can

You try to bring it back- you don't
You try to find a snag- you won't
We're all flesh and bones
So catch me if you can

When all is left to you
No one coming through
Oh, what's a girl to do?
If the will demands
A sudden change of plan
You catch him if you can

When all is left to you
No one coming through
Oh, what's a girl to do?
If the will demands
A sudden change of plan
You catch him if you can
You catch him if you can
Track Name: Over Cold Shoulders
Over and over
Look over your shoulder
At all of the soot on the ground
Oh, it's been falling down
From the moment you got into town
You're older, you're bolder
You've never been colder
You come in here looking for more
And oh, you take all you can fit in your arms
When you walk out the door

You didn't even see it coming
You know you should've seen it coming
You might have even seen it coming
You could have would have seen it all
Could have would have had it all

Father, oh father
Your sons and your daughters
They'll learn how to stand on their own
Oh, when a slap on the left
And a kick to the right's all they know
Daily, or daily
But then again maybe
You'll learn how to love what you have
Oh, if you'll find there is more to the scheme
Than to give or to grab

You didn't even see it coming
You know you should've seen it coming
You might have even seen it coming
You could have would have seen it all
Couldn't wouldn't shouldn't have to crawl

So shoulder, grow older
Don't ever grow colder
And time will bring love to your side
Oh, if you choose to refuse to sit tight while she passes you by
And maybe, just maybe
She'll take you there safely
No more of your running around
And over and over by nightfall
You'll dance in the soot on the ground

You didn't even see it coming
You know you should've seen it coming
You might have even seen it coming
You could have would have seen it all
Could have would have had it all
Track Name: Through An Aquarium
"Good luck", said the nightmare
So pretty but I already have
A house with a top hat and coatrack
Well, your hand's on his shoulder
You never did have feelings
And oh, you'd best get along

You'd better run

Her heart's got a picture frame
I guess you fit quite nicely
Although she's hardly young enough for you
Don't get any older
You'll never get to feel this again
And oh, you get along

You'd better run

Girl, you never run away from boys who always get away
Girl, you'd better run away from boys who always steal away

"Good luck", said the nightmare
So pretty but I already have
A house with a top hat and coatrack
Well, your hand's on his shoulder
You never did have feelings, did you?
And oh, you'd best get along
Said oh, you'd best get along
You'd best get along
Track Name: Cinnamon Bone
Crawling flat on broken glass
To you, to you, to you
Scratch it up and turn
Catch a fire and burn
For you, for you, for you

Couldn't love you more
See your face, for sure
I do, I do, I do
Try to behave, but it's all the same
To you, to you, to you

Cinnamon bone, cinnamon bone
Pin a name on the wall
And take your time
Waste your time on me

Hear the greater call come to break and fall
On you, on you, on you
Make a twisted face, walk a lighter way
For you, for you, for you

Get a loaded gun, take a hit and run
From you, from you, from you
Find another son, one day be done
With you, with you, with you

Cinnamon bone, cinnamon bone
Pin a name on the wall
And take your time
Waste your time on

Cinnamon bone, cinnamon bone
Lovely days have
Come and gone
So take your time
Waste your time on me

Crawling flat on broken glass
To you
To you
To you
For you
Track Name: O, You Sinners
Seek you, see through
Calling for thee
You're wanted now
Go take a bow
Your stepping stone fell underground
I'll crawl 'round, drop down
Writhing for thee, singing

Hear me out-
O, you sinners
Cry aloud and bless us
O, you saints

Wide blue, high tomb
Lying for thee
Where did you go?
What did you know?
Such easy fears and curly toes, oh
Heartbeat, hard feat
Trying for thee, singing

Hear me out
O, you sinners
Cry aloud and bless us
O, you saints

Will you stay, will you stay
Will you go?
Will you stay
Will you stay, stay, stay
Will you go?

Holy, holy- coming for thee
My bleeding tears will shoot it down
Without a word
Without a sound
So un-die, undead
Rising for me

Hear me, hold me
Track Name: Pretty Little Head
Hook, line & sinker- drop it down to the bottom
Butterfly float, flicker, soar to the top
Kill for the thrill- cut it, stick it where you got him
Circle rolling under, running red to the stop

Boy, where's your mother? Fall down dead
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head
I wish you were here, I wish you'd make my bed
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head

Sister, bring it hither, push it down below
Catch yourself a looker, let him go go go
Wanna have your baby, but I'm so so slow
Well, don't you worry, honey, 'cos I can't say no

Boy, where's your mother? Fall down dead
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head
I wish you were here, I wish you'd make my bed
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head

Take a breath, my heart, and hold your tongue
It's just a cog in the year of all my love
Well, take a breath, my heart, and hold your tongue
It's just a cog in the year of all my love
All my love

Boy, where's your mother? Fall down dead
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head
I wish you were here, I wish you'd make my bed
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head

Boy, where's your mother? Fall down dead
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head
I wish you were here, I wish you'd make my bed
Dirty mind, dirty mouth, pretty little head
Track Name: Start With Goodbye, Stop With Hello
Start with goodbye, stop with hello
Catching our breath out in the cold
Lover on fire, thrown in the mire
Scandalous man, name me your plan

We'll start with goodbye, stop with hello
Never a hand hardly to hold
Big city sway, move with the day
Wanting it bad, ever-returning

Home

Start with goodbye, stop with hello
Finishing fast, order so slow
Chasm of mind, child in the mine
Cavernous eyes- what's your design?

We'll start with goodbye, stop with hello
Breaking my heart cracking your code
Down in her lap, sat on her knee
Quivering tongue, flicker with unnamed

Love

Ruing the moons when you were mine
And I stood face-first, clutching my coat
But your house on the hills has got in the way
And it seems to me we've run out of words
And I'm ruing the moons when you were mine
And I stood face-first, clutching my coat
But your house on the hills has got in the way
And it seems to me we've run out of words to

Say
We say
We love
We say we love

Start with goodbye, stop with hello
Catching our breath out in the cold
Track Name: White Words
White winds blow, drifting over the inside
Cold breath flow- chill a soul on the outside
Will it slow- turn your head til it feels right
Lay it low- turn back on our heart fight

Black fog slow- crawling over the hillside
Cold words go, calling under the outside
Slain for no falling down on the inside
Lay me low- turn your back on our heart fight

Warm will glow- burn a hand on your frost bite
Down down down- make a deal with the daylight
Satellite love- hover over our hot night
Dead bones know- carry them til you feel fine
Track Name: Coming Up Roses
Lover of mine, hand over the key
The teeth have all long been gone
And darling divine, you're cutting my bones
With words you won't say, hands you don't hold
Better the last time, sweeter than this time
See that you're older still
What turned you around, pushing you down?
My lips are in bloom fighting your frown

Tell me your secrets, I'll ask you no questions
Braving your mountaintop
When I'm around you, when I'm allowed to
Taking my chances, I'd make a fortune
I'll love you, I'll love you- the darkest part of you
Write you the sweetest song
Drop down from the ledges, hand over defenses
I'm longing to see you through white picket fences

If God kept his promise, I'd tiptoe through tulips
Gather your moss again
Jump over your hedges, stand under your branches
We're coming up roses
Coming up roses indeed

Is patience a virtue, or waiting what fools do?
Mama would never tell
But this onward drive home- it's cutting my bones
With kisses of stone from a heart made of gold
Return to the last time, sweeter than this time
Tugging against my will
To dive under your dock, swim in your pond
Knowing the water will carry you on

If God kept his promise, I'd tiptoe through tulips
Gather your moss again
Jump over your hedges, swing on your branches
We're coming up roses
Coming up roses

If God kept his promise, I'd tiptoe through tulips
Gather your moss again
Jump over your hedges, swing on your branches
We're coming up roses
Coming up roses indeed

We're coming up roses indeed
