Track Name: Last Kiss
She kissed me for the last time yesterday
She kissed me for the last time, here where I lay

You know I ain't moved an eye since she said goodbye
I wish I could cry when I hear her cry
But she kissed me for the last time yesterday

I lay beside her, but she don't know
Oh I lay beside her 'cause I can't let go

And when she shivers in the cold, cold air
does she think with a shudder that I might be there

I lay beside her, but she don't know

One thing I never had was a peaceful mind
One thing I never had was a peaceful mind

But she knew how to ease my restless soul
gonna haunt that woman when my body's cold

'cause she is peaceful, she is mine

She kissed me for the last time yesterday
Oh she kissed me for the last time, here where I lay

Ain't no heaven or hell gonna take me away

Nobody gonna tell me I can't stay
When she kissed me for the last time yesterday
Track Name: Punchline
If I had a mirror
a canvas and a brush
I'd paint for you a portrait
one to make you blush
of a man that you have broken
a flower you have crushed
and I'd mail it right to your doorstep
yeah I'd pay to have it rushed
Then you could hang me down the hall
on a nail in the wall
or leave me down in the basement
and let the spiders crawl all over me

Laughed so hard I cried
Laughed so hard I choked
I don't even know why I'm laughing
when I'm the punchline to the joke

Well I might be best forgotten
a tin man left to rust
a dream you got lost in
a memory you can't trust

colored between the lines
I painted my last stroke
I signed his name at the bottom
That was a name you never spoke

So I've taken down the mirrors
cleared away the smoke
in the cruel, unforgiving light
I'm the punchline to the joke

Laughed so hard I cried
Laughed so hard I choked
I don't even know why I'm laughing
when I'm the punchline to the joke
Track Name: Paraselene
The blind eyes are turning
'cause I'm the living proof
that nothing is for certain
and the moon is split in two

and I wonder if the sky above me
is darkest over you
or did you find the bright side of the moon
The bright side of the moon
Bright side of the moon

The honey bees are swarming
wild rattlesnakes in bloom
the band is up for homicide
they've murdered Claire De Lune

Don't Turn on the sun
while everyone's hiding their wounds
and looking for the bright side of the moon
Bright side of the moon
Bright side of the moon

And I know I've picked the wrong place to die
When I see you cross the room
You're selling me your melancholy eyes
but they're not really blue

Black holes revealing nothing
nothing I can use
Just shadows on the bright side of the moon
Bright side of the moon

It's only shadows
On the bright side of the moon
Only shadows
on the bright side of the moon
Bright side of the moon
Bright side of the moon
Track Name: Seven Children
The morning drum is pounding
but my heart won't beat the tune

Drag out all the furniture,
to the middle of the room

Tell me will you meet me when the moon's on fire and the earth is still
Tell me that you will
Tell me that you will

Tell me, will you meet me when the moon's on fire and the earth is still
Tell me that you will
Tell me that you will, child

'cause I have seven children in the ground
there's nothing left on earth to get me down
don't you know I curse my lord above
for taking everything I love
seven children in the ground.

and tell me will you me when the moon's on fire
and the earth is still?

Tell me that you will,
Tell me that you will

Mourning drum is pounding
I'm trembling at the sound
break up all the furniture
and burn the building down

Tell me will you meet me when the ashes settle all over the hill

Tell me that you will
Tell me that you will

and tell me will you meet me when the moon's on fire
and the earth is still

Tell me that you will
Tell me that you will now

'cause I have seven children in the ground
I have seven children in the ground

Nothing left on earth to get me down
Nothing left on earth
Nothing left on earth to get me down
Track Name: Ben The Destroyer
Ben is big
Ben is tall
Ben is the one who's gonna kill us all
Got giant hands
crush cities to sands
Might be on your side
but he waits for no man
He's running out
He can't stand still
and when he's in a bottle
he's the one to kill

Ben is old
Ben is young
He was there
when the very first man was hung
Ben is big
but he can be small
He's hung next to Jesus
on your mama's wall
Ben is a healer
but he's out of his mind
Sometimes he crawls
even though he can fly

He ain’t your friend
He ain’t your foe
Don’t care what you do
Don’t care where you go
He is the ocean
Where we all get tossed
Benny’s the destroyer
Benny’s the boss

Ben is big
Ben is tall
Ben is the one
who's gonna kill us all
Ben is free
when we're in jail
Ben is a snake
swallows his own tail
Ben is a storm in which
we all are lost
Benny’s the Destroyer
Benny’s the boss
Track Name: The Devil Wants To Get Paid
Hell's on fire, I've been told
But it feels to me mighty cold
Rake remains, twist in the coals
and I find my place among fine souls
and that's a place you'll never know

Nothing left, just the sound
of one heart beating underground
Gonna wake up the dead, gonna wake up the dead
gonna wake up the dead, gonna wake up the dead

Your wicked spell has lost its charm
Can't do no good, you can't do no harm
You had your day, and now the devil wants to get paid
Be on your way, hey-hey

Honey did you think you were unbound
to the devil's deal 'cause he wants you now
It's your debt, you gotta pay
in his bed, the one you made
And that's where you'll stay

Nothing left, just the sound
of one heart beating underground
Gonna wake up the dead, gonna wake up the dead
gonna wake up the dead, gonna wake up the dead

Your wicked spell has lost its charm
Can't do no good, you can't do no harm
You had your day, and now the devil wants to get paid
Be on your way, hey-hey
and that's what I say

The devil wants to get paid
