Track Name: Flophouse Ghosts
Theres a man down on bended knee
he prays to god he begs and pleads sayin
woe woe woe is me i have no self identity
he wonders why he never hears
that voice inside his inner ear sayin
child never fear your not really alone

he works towards life eternally
and a perfection he'll never reach
now and then he starts to think maybe the jokes on me


These Flophouse Ghosts we roam the streets
and play the devils melodies
screaming fuck eternity this darkness is our home
at the start of night say half-past ten
on some corner you'll see
a song and dance the devils hands at work in cheap whiskey
Track Name: Haunted Home
WE LINGERED LIKE GHOSTS AROUND THE FLOPHOUSE STOOP
WE PLAYED EACH OTHERS SONGS EVEN WROTE A FEW
ALL THE KIDS WE GOT OUR 503 TATOOS
WITH THE NIGHT ON OUR SIDE WE GOT NOTHING TO LOSE

IN THESE BEST OF DAYS WE'LL SING OF BETTER ONES
TOLD US THINGS WOULD CHANGE YEA WE ALREADY KNOW
SO WE'LL TAKE THIS HAUNTED HOUSE AND MAKE A HAUNTED HOME
CAUSE WE'RE NEVER MOVING ON, OH NO

ON SATURDAY NIGHT WE'D GO OUT AND HIT THE STREETS
BUSKIN FOR FUN AND MAYBE RENT AND BEER MONEY
THE COPS TRY TO TELL US THEY GOT A NOISE COMPLAINT
FROM THE BUILDING BEHIND US WITH NO INHABITANTS

IN THESE BEST OF DAYS WE'LL SING OF BETTER ONES
WHEN COPS DONT FUCK WITH KIDS FOR BOREDOM OR FOR FUN
AND WE'LL TAKE THIS HAUNTED HOUSE AND MAKE A HAUNTED HOME CAUSE WE'RE NEVER MOVING ON
NO WE'RE NEVER MOVING ON
OH NO
Track Name: Ol Crow Jane
MY LOVE CAME TO ME BY THE FIRESIDE
SOFTLY SHE SANG THE SWEETEST SONG IN MY EAR
SO I OPENED THE DOOR AND WE WENT INSIDE
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT I HELD MY DARLIN NEAR
OH YOUR LOVED ONE WILL TAKE YOU AS HIGH AS THE STARS
STAND BY YOU THROUGH ALL THE HAPPINESS AND CHEERS
BUT YOUR LOVED ONE WILL LEAVE YOU RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE
DARLIN CROW JANE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE

OL CROW JANE TAKE ME TO SLEEP TONIGHT
LIGHT THAT FIRE IN MY CHEST
KEEP ME WARM IN THE CANDLELIGHT
BRING ME PEACE AND GIVE ME REST

WE GREW UP RACING TOWARD FINISH LINES
STRAIGHT ON UP TO THAT BOTTLE IN HAND
WHY IS EVERYONE AFRAID TO DIE
ITS JUST ANOTHER RACE A FINISH LINE IN THE END
WHEN MY TIME COMES AND MY RACE IS RUN
DARLIN CROW JANE HAND IN HAND
WE'LL BE CROSSING THAT GREAT AND FINAL FINISH LINE
NEVER NO NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN

OL CROW JANE TAKE ME TO SLEEP TONIGHT
LIGHT THAT FIRE IN MY CHEST
KEEP ME WARM IN THE CANDLE LIGHT
BRING ME PACE AND GIVE ME REST
Track Name: Hang Around
SOME ARE CHEATS AND SOME ARE LIARS
SOME ARE JUST SCUMFUCKS
MOST OF US ARE ASSHOLES AND WE'RE ALL SHIT OUTTA LUCK
ITS SAFE TO SAY WE'RE WORTHLESS
YOU KNOW HELL WONT TAKE THESE SOULS
BUT EVERYONE IS WELCOME IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS

A LITTLE GIRL WAKES YOU FROM YOUR SLEEP
SHE WAVES HER HAND AND WHISPERS COM CHASE ME
DOWN THE HALL SHE CHILLS THE AIR
THROUGH THE DOOR SHE DISAPPEARS

I SPEND MY NIGHTS
IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS
SPENT MOST MY LIFE
IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS
ILL SPEND ALL NIGHT
IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS

THERES A WHITE ROPE HANGING IN AN OLD OAK TREE
WHERE THEY CUT DOWN A NOOSE AND A DEAD BODY
THE ROPES STILL SWAYING IN THE BREEZE AND HER GHOSTS SHES STAYIN HAUNTING DREAMS
YOU CAN HEAR HEAR SCREAM
COME AND HANG WITH ME
Track Name: Good things come to those who wait
A RAT GOES RUNNING THROUGH A HOUSES
DEEPEST DARKEST CRACKS
HE WAS SEARCHING FOR SOME CRUMBY FOOD
BUT ALL HE FOUNDS A TRAP
A BOY WAS LOOKIN FOR SOME LOVE WAS THAT TO MUCH TO ASK
SHOVED A BARREL DOWN HIS THROAT
SAID BOY SWALLOW FAST

YOU LIVE TO DREAM AND DREAM OF DEATH
WITH EVERY WASTED WAKING BREATH
YOU TELL YOURSELF THERES NOTHING LEFT
YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE IN VAIN

DEVOTING TIME TO EVERY CAUSE
AND WORKING HARD WITH NO RESOLVE
NOW YOURE TRYING TO IGNORE
ITS DRIVING YOU INSANE

YOU CAN TIE A BLINDFOLD ROUND HEAD
COMPLAIN CAUSE YOU CANT SEE
YOU CAN TIE A NOOSE AROUND YOUR NECK
AND JUMP OUT OF A TREE
IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS MY FRIEND
THEN DONT LISTEN TO ME
CAUSE DEATH WILL COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
KEEP WAITING PATIENTLY!!
