Track Name: The Awful Din
what you made me do
had to dig that grave as long and tall as you
the song can't be unsung
i'll see you lie down in it by the first light of the sun

the things you do
i've seen you dance with the devil
while your baby sings the blues
why would i walk the floor
when i could dance right down to the god damn liquor store

the time is nigh
let the light run out of your cold blue eye
i'm too inclined to sin
anything to stop the awful din
Track Name: Winter Time
i'm gonna be so cold in the summer time
trying to do something for my worried mind
and i'm gonna need someone in the winter time
but then again i best not waste no one's precious time

tell me about shortcuts to a better lie
and wouldn't it be something to never die
still i'm gonna need someone in the winte rtime
but then again i best not waste no one's precious time
Track Name: Valley Of The Fool
i don't know if i can stand it- another run at love
i've been riding through the valley- with my heart collecting dust

singing 'ridin on a pony' in the middle of the night
feelin 'i don't need no doctor', 'so many times' and 'shine a light'

tell me now should i be sorry for the foolish things i've done?
for the fool who needs his medicine is the fool without a love
Track Name: The Floor's More Kind
you told be good bye and moved south
took half of the things in my house
now i sleep on the floor, but i feel i've got more
peace of mind - the floor's more kind

was getting tired of living downstairs
while you're up there curling your hair
when the shit hit the fan, well my heart spilt like sand
on the floor - and what's more

i can't cry
my body is thin and dry
from the things that i take, just to keep me from wakin' at night
it don't seem right

it wasn't funny, the shit that you done
it wasn't rosey, but i had my fun
guess i'll roll right along, like a train in a song
about the pain, you shot in my veins

i can't cry
my body is thin and dry
from the things that i take, just to keep me from wakin' at night
it don't seem right
but pay no mind
i'll be fine
the floor's more kind
Track Name: Don't Go Tellin'
don't go tellin' no one bout our love

don't go tellin' no one what i said
lyin' next to you in your bed
what i said

cause darlin i'm confused
but not as bad as you
and child it took two to blow that fuse
but mostly you

don't go tellin no one how you feel
you may think you love me
but i ain't real

cause darlin i'm confused
but not as bad as you
and child it took two to blow that fuse
but mostly you
Track Name: Red Light
stop what you're doing, put the red light on
stop what you're doing, put the red light on
with your ludes and your champagne and your lord above
you'd better put the red light on

blink of an eye and your love was gone
fast as it came and your love was gone
cold hearted woman gonna need my love
you'd better put the red light on

stop, honey what you're doin, put the red light on
gonna come a time when you're gonna need my love
you'd better put the red light on
Track Name: Where Were You
where were you when i was knockin on your door
where were you when i was crawlin cross the floor
i could not find you
i did not see you
anywhere
where were you

where were you when i was callin on the phone
where were you when i was drinkin all alone
i could not find you
i did not see you
anywhere
where were you

when i hear what they say about you
i can only hope they're lyin
when i hear what they say about you
i can't stop these tears i'm cryin
Track Name: Crooked Diamond Line
i love my baby like a tiger loves the cage its locked up in
i love that woman though she put me in the shape i'm in
but she don't need me, she's just fine
she's gonna walk that crooked diamond line away from me

i love my baby like a dead man loves the cold dirt underground
i love that woman when there's no one, not a soul around
but she don't need me, she's just fine
she's gonna walk that crooked diamond line away from me

there's thing i'm wonderin' bout i do not want to know
where my darlin been and where she gonna go
the sun is comin up the rooster just done crowed
where my darlin been and where she gonna go
Track Name: Worse For The Wear
i saw you walkin down the road
worse for the wear
i saw you so i turned to go
like no one was there

try to see
my sympathy
my heartfelt relief
lie to me
and sing to me
a slow memory

i call you in the evening time
cause i never sleep
i call you like a lonely child
fuck's wrong with me

try to see
my sympathy
my heartfelt relief
lie to me
and sing to me
a slow memory
