Track Name: Ol Crow Jane
My love came to me by the fireside
Softly she sang the sweetest song in my ear
We opened the door and we went inside
All throught 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 ones will leave you right where you are
Darlin Crow Jane will always be there oh

Crow Jane take me to sleep tonight
Spark that fire in my chest
keep me warm in the candlelight
bring be peace and give me rest

We grew up racing towards finish lines
Straight on up to that bottle in hand tell me
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 oh

Crow Jane take me to sleep tonight
Spark that fire in my chest
keep me warm in the candlelight
bring be peace and give me rest
Track Name: Man on the Run
Bartender please won't you pour me a drink
I have a long ways to travel tonight
another stiff one would help me along
another 20 miles, soon i will be gone

Such is the life of a man on the run
I'll be boarding bus old number 7
Brother Jack won't you help me get on
this damn driver is cutting me off

I frequent this station year after year
My ticket to freedom's another round of beer!
Just like the other dozen we shared
The world is spinning, its time to pay my fare

Such is the Life of a man on the run
I'll be boarding bus old number 7
Brother Jack won't you help me get on
This damn driver is cutting me off
Track Name: Presentations Everything
My feet are blistered and my back is tired
I been trapped in this swamp for a while
My mind is aching and i cant unwind
Louisiana's sucking me dry

See a man hearing voices in his head
Can mean either one of two things
A Prophet of the Lord or he's from the looney bin
I guess presentation's everything...yep

My hands are blistered and my mind is tired
I been trapped in this heat for a while
My heart is aching and i can't sleep at night
Pensacola's sucking me dry

You can try to control what you can't understand
Uncertainty in your eyes
If you try to stay the same when your world goes up in flames
well you're in for a big fuckin surprise...yep
Track Name: Hope for Naught
Slowly slowly coming in
drop the ball youll never win
we're coming in, in our own rites
aint got no heart and hope to die
point the finger shake the blame
as everybody plays the game and everybody goes insane
hope for naught, expect the same

So rare it is to be suprised
as dissappointment fills the skies
you ushered in your own demise
the X that marks the dotted line
pour yourself a healthy dose
a double whiskey comatose
hoping for the best results
take anything remotely close
Track Name: sticky fingers
When you're living in a little town
and you always sleep around
you'll find that things have a way of catching up with you
All your sticky fingered friends
are really only out to get
every little bit of dirt that they can find on you, in the end

If you don't speak up nobody hears
and when they take it in you'll see who cares
tho nothing is as it appears the rest is up to you
See a penny pick it up
it's heads or tails who gives a fuck
there's no time to wait for luck you'll waste your whole life through...till the end
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 WON'T TAKE THESE SOULS
BUT EVERYONE IS WELCOME IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS!!

A little girl wakes you from your sleep
she waves her hands and whispers
"come chase me"
Down the hall she chills the air
and through the door she dissappears

I SPEND ALL NIGHT
IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS
SPENT MOST MY LIFE
IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS
I'LL SPEND ALL NIGHT
IN THE COMPANY OF GHOSTS

There's a white rope hanging in the old oak tree
where they cut down a noose and a dead body
the ropes still swaying in the breeze
and her ghosts she's staying haunting dreams
you can hear her scream
COME AND HANG WITH ME

...........................................................
good things come to those who wait........
