Track Name: I Drank Blood From a Cactus
This town will cry tonight
We live or die tonight
Oh God, I live by the gun
The women scream for me
The men, they bleed for me
I lose myself every time
I lose more every time
We've trained for nights and days
And yet we feel this way
Ready the horses and the guns
The booze may steal my heart
But it won't ease my part
Shoot them quick and don't let them run
Why must we live for this hunt?
But if you believe me
This life will never end
And if you believe me
I swear I'll never ride again
This book is coming to a close, I know
Every hour that I take
I just want to go home
Some way back home
The moon is shining down
And I can hear the sounds
Of the children as they sleep
Oh God, please kill me now
And I won't lay them down
Their little hands, they're at your feet
Oh God, deliver me from this
But if you believe me
This life will never end
And if you believe me
I swear I'll never ride again
This book is coming to a close, I know
Every hour that I take
I just want to go home
Some way back home
Track Name: Catastrophe of Success
Should I try and hold you close
When all the while you're bleeding from your throat?
Escaping every seed we've sown
But you still fear the hunger
And in my father's eyes
We must look at the way we live our lives
Oh, the body may die but man will live forever
And I could never just let you go
But these hands I held have grown so cold
I could never just let you go
But you might be the one that got away
The rain may pour, oh, the wind it may blow
But your sweet tar heart still shines like gold
Sometimes I wish I'd just given up
You might make it worth my while
So it seems I've built this fire
Now should I just walk away or piss it out?
But now your headlights burn like fire in the night
I feel like an escaped criminal
Keeping so far out of sight that I lose myself
But even from these hills
I still hear my sweet Laura cry, oh I
Send me dark blue roses when I die
And I see right through those crystal eyes
The dark dens you're born of
And don't you think that I don't know
Those crooked paths you may follow
Even lying there, left shattered upon the floor
You're still no better than that golden calf
You represented incarnate
Oh, I know you are a liar
Still, take a seat by this fire for just a little while
Laura, oh, Laura
I have tried to leave you behind me
But I remained more faithful than I had intended to be
I reach for a cigarette, I cross the street
I go to the movies or a bar, I buy a drink
I speak to the nearest stranger
Anything that can blow your candles out
Nowadays these are lit by lightning
So blow out your candles, Laura
And say goodbye
Track Name: Othello
Oh, my sweet Othello
You have done my fragile heart wrong
You wish for every tear, a crocodile
Thought I betrothed the best
But now all my joy is gone
Now you'll patronize, you'll pillage, and you'll plunder
You may cut me down in their own city streets
And you might be the wave that pulls me under
But I won't be the rug between your feet
Oh, the witches and the she-wolves, they could never
Never be the blade that could tear us apart
But the treacherous ways of your beloved neighbor
They will surely stop the beating of my heart
Oh, my sweet Othello
You have done everything so wrong
You wish for every tear, a crocodile
Thought I betrothed the best
But soon found I was wrong
My mind, it may be quick and it may be quiet
As your hands and my throat did quickly meet
But as I lay here silently sleeping
It will be your blood that stains these sheets
Oh, my dear lord, Othello
You have done everything so wrong
You wish for every tear, a crocodile
Thought I betrothed the best
But soon found I was wrong
Oh, my dear lord, Othello
You have caused this fragile heart harm
You wish for every tear, a crocodile
Thought you betrothed a whore
But soon found you were wrong
Track Name: Half the Gold (All the Cancer)
Dear Rosalina, I have tried and I have failed
To keep my faithful eyes upon you
I fear this time I might have gone too far
I treaded carefully and turned to you with open arms
But now all I smell is coconut
And the remnants of my barren heart
Oh, our flatline love was never hopeful from the start
So flee this brothel of my poorly-crafted lies
And leave me, leave me on my own
I've painted you so many strange colors in my mind
To justify the lies I told my Rosalina
Rosie, I have tried and failed you a second time
Dear Rosalina, know that I, I adore you
Oh, our flatline love was never hopeful from the start
So flee this brothel of my poorly-crafted lies
And leave me, leave me on my own
Dear Rosalina, it seems like months
Since I've been writing you these letters
You'd think that I'd know better
But I don't know no better
But I'm a liar, I said I'd built the fire
But I had only seen it
I didn't mean it when I said that I would try
Recall I said that I'm a liar
But I have tried and I have failed a billion times
You know that I
I said I built the fire but I hadn't even seen it
I didn't mean it when I said that I would try
I think that I'm alone
You say you think that I'd know better
But it's apparent I will never know no better
But I'm not alone, I see you out my bedroom window
I see your face, your lights are off
Your posessions in every corner of my home
Dear Rosalina, I have tried
But I haven't failed to show you this time
Oh, our flatline love was never hopeful from the start
