Track Name: Devils in the Voodoo
Got it right
got it real bad
got it right
got it real bad
painted ponies on the ride
promises on the other side
got it right
got it real bad

the devil's in the voodoo
the money's in the bank
the devil's in the voodoo
I got no money in the bank

saw the light
riding that twisted trail
I saw the light
riding that twisted trail
and silent saviors lost in time
sold me waiting at the end of the line
I saw the light
riding that twisted trail

the devil's in the voodoo
the money's in the bank
the devils in the voodoo
I got no money in the bank

It's alright
that's what they say
it's alright
that's what they say
their blood runs hot
and they take it away
never never land on the very next day
it's alright
that's what they say

the devil's in the voodoo
the money's in the bank
the devil's in the voodoo
I got no money in the bank.
Track Name: Shimmer
In another time
in another place
love would disappear
without a trace
like a blackjack game
hiding from the queen of spades
now I hold you closer
don't blink don't look away
Track Name: My Angel
Darkness falls and the great golden ball's on the move again
traffic lights spread out and the nighttime spreads its wings again
you remember the little things and try like hell to forget
forgetting's easy to hold onto now

Something startled you last night from your sleeping
it's that same old dream again you can see it happening
the scene is different every time but it always feels the same in the end
dreams are easy to hold onto now
Track Name: Revelation Man
I am a revelation man
and i've got a deep admiration for some of you
striving for the goal
paying all the tolls
I've got something of a plan
I'm going to burn down this revelation land

I heard that you finally got busted
on the rocky shores of the subdivisions there
bright yellow lonely fear wasn't in the promise
baby can you hear
I'm gonna burn down this revelation land
Track Name: Tarriffville Town
Let's go down to Tarriffville town
let's go down to Tarriffville town
see those girls
and watch them

unfurl and hold their hair
unfurl and hold their hair
on the front porch
just standing there

and somewhere along the way
somewhere along the way
somewhere along the way
those times just fade away

do you walk with a heart in your hand
do you walk with a heart in your hand
count tomorrows
in the golden sands

and you see that wheel of colored light
see that wheel of colored light
it's the carnival
baby it's tonight

and somewhere along the way
somewhere along the way
somewhere along the way
those times they just fade away

so let's go down to Tarriffville town
let's go down to Tarriffville town
see those girls
and watch them

unfurl and hold their hair
unfurl and hold their hair
on the front porch
just standing there
standing there
Track Name: Bullets
You've been haunted
you've been haunted
you've been riding all night long

you might think about it
you might think about it
but you know that your thoughts they aren't that strong

you got bullets, barbed wire, now you're a gun
bullets, barbed wire, now your a gun

the dawn is sprawling
the dawn is sprawling
you reminded me of the western plains

I read a book about it
read a book about it
full of violent stories from those cowboy days

your fear is the weapon that you've become
bullets, barbed wire, now you're a gun

you taught yourself to hear
you taught yourself to hear
and you learned to move without ever being seen

you might think about it
you might think about it
but your thoughts don't stand a chance against those dreams

your fear is the weapon that you've become
bullets, barbed wire, now you're a gun

there's a place in the wake of the sprawling plains
there's a place in the wake of the sprawling plains
where the silence meets it's end

and you can't turn back and you must press on
you can't turn back and you must press on
you can't turn back you must press on

I could've loved you in any time.
Track Name: Hold Me Down
There is no dancing fire on the horizon
only soft colors of pink and lavender
and now I can say that this death is a sweetness
breathing and listening back from the bold underground

you hold me down

I hear the break release air sounds
I hear the break release air sounds
life skids to halt
only a sunset remains

so cash in your chips
tighten your lips
I'm going down
into the bold underground

you hold me down.
