Track Name: The Night They Came and Took You
I remember the iowa skyline
where it bled into the corners of my eyes
and i recall, now
your mother left in springtime
stranding you, and hurting you inside

and we watched the devil scream at god
begging him to please just stop
fingers grasping at the thinnest air

and i remember loving you
the way that boys aren’t s’posed to do
the way your fingers carded through my hair

it’ll be you and me
and we’ll be bursting at the seams
run with me
through the desert, through the trees
and we were
falling fast
when you turned and looked at me

you said ‘i’ll protect you
they won’t get to you through me’

i remember the night they came and took you
the way you called my name into the skies
your fingers scraping
across mine in the darkness
i couldn’t find a grip i don’t know why

and you told me not to be afraid
not to let myself be swayed
by my fears and by the loss of you

the tears were streaming down my cheeks
as they tossed you to the sea
your body limp, and then i knew the truth

it’ll be you and me
and we’ll be bursting at the seams
run with me
through the desert, through the trees
and we were
falling fast
when you turned and looked at me

you said ‘i’ll protect you
they won’t get to you through me’

i remember the iowa skyline
the way the fires scattered in the night
and i recall, now
the screams of burning wicked
the way they begged me just to see the light

i felt the devil take my arm
hold me close, and safe from harm
fingertips, carding through my hair

and you were gone, but not alone
i’d be with you, rock and stone
now that we could be free from the stares

it’ll be you and me
and we’ll be bursting at the seams
run with me
through the desert, through the trees
and we were
fading fast
when you turned and looked at me

I said ‘i’ll protect you
they won’t get to you through me’
Track Name: Boys Who Shave (version 2)
you used to call me ‘baby’
pink lipstick on crisp white sheets and
you used to bruise my neck
with kisses that my mother said looked

like i’d loved a demon
but on that stage i remember thinking you
looked more like an angel
the way you touched my cheek and said

you
better watch out
they’ll tear that dress and they’ll
scream and shout you

better be brave
cause there’s no love for boys who shave and when

you were still in your youth
your father told you he’d had no son and you
tried to tell him the truth
but he wouldn’t listen to anyone and

i remember that night
the night you came home in a fright with
black tear-tracks down your cheeks
and wouldn’t eat for a whole week saying

you
better watch out
they’ll tear that dress and they’ll
scream and shout you

better be brave
cause there’s no love for boys who shave and

i remember sequins
scattered over blood-red hems and i’d
never been an artist
but i wished that i could draw your face as

you stepped out on that stage
in black high heels that were all the rage and
you were never perfect
but in those moments it sure seemed it and

you
better watch out
they’ll tear that dress and they’ll
scream and shout you

better be brave
cause there’s no love for boys who shave and

in the hospital, I
watched your face turn grey and dull and the
color on your cheeks
wasn’t blush and wasn’t rogue and

i remember beauty
the way you could still smile at me and
even as you left me
i couldn’t cry cause you were free and

you
better watch out
they’ll tear that dress and they’ll
scream and shout you

better be brave
cause there’s no love for boys who shave
Track Name: Skin and Bone
Well he met the devil at a back alley dive
He was wasting in the gutter waiting to be alive
A pastor and a choir boy said “pray for your sins”
Then the pastor sipped a drink and got a room with the kid

And that’s when in the bar there walked the devil himself
And he had to admit that he carried it well
And the devil said “to find your god just wait for the call”
And then the choir boy was screaming and pounding the wall

“You think when it goes dark that you’ll go up or down
So you’ll try to walk the path of god while you’re still around
Or else with sex, love and money try to lighten the load
But we all fall down at the end of the road”

CHORUS (and lie on 3rd line)
Hellfire skin and bone
So when all is said and done
Will you read your bible son?
And lie when all is said and done

Well they got up and the devil said “the priests are a bore”
And then they followed the screams and then he knocked on the door
The pastor peeked out and then the altar boy ran
And the pastor cowered in the corner cock in his hand

The devil said “the one’s that go up, people like this
That’s all they got up there so why not give me a kiss?
If you give it to me baby I can lighten the load
When we all go down at the end of the road.”

To hellfire, skin and bone
So when all is said and done
Will you read your bible son?
And fly when all is said and done

So come and join the fun, boy it’s a party down there
The saints are bored as hell you want the sinners I swear
Dance and fuck and revel it’ll lighten the load
Cause we all fall down at the end of the road

Hellfire, skin and bone
What will be your final home?
Cause heaven’s cold when you’re all alone
When the screen goes dark and all is said and done
Track Name: Invite Only
Well, the bible said no blending thread
And if you eat fish, you’re as good as dead
So while you’re reading from the good old book
Just remember where you’re headed when you croak

Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
To the end that’s waiting when we leave this town

Now you can preach about blood and sin
But you’ll learn the truth, when you’re clocking in
The dick I crave may hurt my soul
But you won’t be laughing in your hidden hole

Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
To the end that’s waiting when we leave this town

So come on down, to the deep dark well
There’s a cage for you, there’s a little cell
Beelzebub’ll take your coat
While Belial smiles a the devil’s jokes

Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
To the end that’s waiting when we leave this town

So laugh and laugh at the faults of man
With the chains that drag at your feet and hands
With the bass line punch, and the sulfur smell
It’s a big old party in the pits of hell

Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
Down, down, down (we head, we head)
To the end that’s waiting when we leave this town
Track Name: A Life Too Long
Have you noticed all your friends look good in black and see them trying
Way back when when no one knew my name before they started crying
All those words that everyone’s afraid to say
While you’re still breathing, they wanna save you anyway
And light up all those candles when it doesn’t matter anymore


But for the boy born wrong life starts looking pretty long
But ain’t it sad, ain’t it funny how they listen when you’re gone?
But for the life I’ve led and everything she said
At least you know they’ll care for you once you’re already dead


Have you noticed everyone who’s there for you when you’re not there
And all the friends who thought that they were scared of you, well now they care
Two week martyrs hoist your body
Way up high til you start rotting
And sign their names in all the spaces they left blank when we were here

But for the boy born wrong life starts looking pretty long
Ain't it sad, ain't it funny how they listen when you're gone?
And for the life I've led, and everything she said
At least you know they care for you once you're already dead

Lay you out in all your sunday best
That suit they shamed and bind your chest
Cause everyone’s a rebel when their martyr stares them in the face

But for the boy born wrong life starts looking pretty long
Ain't it sad, ain't it funny how they listen when you're gone?
And for the life I've led, and everything she said
At least you know they care for you once you're already dead
For the boy born wrong life starts looking pretty long
Ain't it sad, ain't it funny how they listen when you're gone?
Ain't it sad, ain't it funny how they listen when you're gone?
