Track Name: Daughter
Give me my daughter
She’s been gone too long
She is young, she won’t make it alone

Strike me down like a bad man
Strike me down like a bad man
Strike me down like a bad man
For saying such, for saying such

Give me my daughter
And I’ll give you my son
He is strong, he will make it alone

Strike me down like a bad man
Strike me down like a bad man
Strike me down like a bad man
For saying such, for saying such

Oh, these lines laid down
Oh, these lines we’ll cross
Oh, these lines laid down
Oh, these lines we’ll cross
Track Name: Cruel Intentions
I can’t win
All I hear is the sound of you
Filling yourself up
To some unforeseeable brim

I found my place
But it’s so far away
Somewhere where this din
Is cut into pieces

Would you go away
Or, sir, would you stay
And drive me mad
Out of some cruel intentions you had

I found my place
But it’s so far away
Somewhere where this din
Is cut into pieces

Drop your cunning
It’s for me to decide
If you survive
In my heart
Track Name: The Mist
The mist is coming over
The lake where we swim

It’s taken all our trees down
And making our power dim

And what are we going to do
When we can no longer see and know where we are?

Will we forget our mother’s words
And act like the children we are?

Oh, can we go where the mist hasn’t blown?

The windows pale before us
I think we should get out of this place

The preacher she is crying
About some end of days

And what is she going to do
When she’s forgotten the faith that she’s missed?

Will she forget her father’s words
And act like the monster she is?

Oh, can we go where the mist hasn’t blown?

And what are you going to do
When you’re alone with the things that you’ve done?

Will you forget your word
And act like what they said you would become?

Oh, can we go
away from these monsters high for miles
not under our beds but the ones in these aisles?

Away from these monsters high for miles
Not under our beds but the ones in these

Oh, can we go where the mist hasn’t blown?
Track Name: The Beach
Go out to sea to find little things
Like sound that crashes all around
And light that blinds the sound

And when you’ve found everything
Come back to shore
And find me

I’ll stay on land finding little things
Like flowers blooming in the breeze
And children playing in the heat

And when I’ve found everything
I’ll go to the beach
And wait for you
To come back to me

Come back to me

Go out to sea
I’ll be on the beach

Go out to sea
I’ll be on the beach
Track Name: Go To Sleep
Go to sleep
You're already dreaming
There's no use in feeling
A little bit scared
Track Name: On With The Show
I was a circus clown
I painted my face to fit my surround
And, oh! What a joke I was!
And, oh! What a joke I’ve become!

I was the dancing bear
I dragged all my chains to make them aware
Oh! What a danger I am!
To strike every woman, every man

Send me to the doctor I’ve been sick
I forgot this was my only bliss
And I’ve come to know
That I have to go
On with the show

I had my fortune told
I heard I had to go
And, oh! What a tale!
To stop is to fail

Send me to the doctor I’ve been sick
I forgot this was my only bliss
And I’ve come to know
That I have to go
On with the show

On with the show!
Track Name: The Greatest Killer
She swims with sharks at night
When out comes the killing knife
You’ll know
She’s close

To having her way with you
And making you do what you do, what you don’t

John, let’s go

Let’s go to Mexico

She swims with sharks at night
And she’ll find no ease in light
You know
She’s grown

Up to a phantom size
And she’ll have a killer surprise if you don’t

John, let’s go

Let’s go to Mexico

She’s not gonna wait for dinner
Not even gonna let you say your peace
You know she’s the greatest killer
And you, you might be her next feast

So, let’s go to Mexico

John, let’s go

Cause Alice is getting close
Track Name: Crossroads
Boy’s got the fingers made for a digger
Said, 'Make me a painter of vases and figures
Of ladies dressed in red

Give me the power to raise up a tower
And make me kingdom where I can lead ‘em
Those ladies dressed in red'

Said, 'Make me a morning
As bright as can fake it, oh lord
Or I’ll seek out the old bar
And find out the crossroads alone'

Boy’s got the heartstrings made for a preacher
Said, 'Make me a player of music for creatures
And ladies dressed in red

Trade me this poor life for a rich one
Tales of the old wives, of devils and bedlam
And women dressed in red'

Said, 'Make me a morning
As bright as can fake it, oh lord
Or I’ll seek out the old bar
And find out the crossroads alone

Alone!
Oh, lord!'

Said, 'Make me a morning
As bright as can fake it, oh lord
Or I’ll seek out the old bar
And find out the crossroads alone'
Track Name: Montreal
We took a train to Montreal
We stayed up all night
We didn’t fight once
We didn’t cry once
Oh, but twice

We laid in our beds
We stayed in our clothes
Eyes all awake
And hands all to hold
And away we went
And away we go

And if you promise to spend your life with me
You have to promise to scream at me when I’m wrong
Scream at me when I’m wrong
Scream

We took a train to Montreal
That’s when I knew
That I could fall
That I could fall
That I could
Track Name: Celebrate
Get me out of this hole
Where I’ve done all my growing
My love is gone
My hands are broke

Get me out of this town
Where the boys are around
I don’t know what they want
But I know where it’s going

Let me go
Whether you’re scratched to the bone
Whether you’re sick and alone
Whether you’ve no one

Forget what you know
Forget what you’ve hoped for
Let the words that we spoke
Carry you til you’re old

And when we take to the streets
When we forget what we need
Let me run
Please go home

And let me go
Whether you’re scratched to the bone
Whether you’re sick and alone
Whether you’ve no one

Celebrate my love for you
Celebrate I’m blind for you
Celebrate my heart in two
Celebrate apart from you

And let me go
Whether you’re scratched to the bone
Whether you’re sick and alone
Whether you’ve no one
Whether you’ve no one

Get me out of this hole
Where I’ve done all my growing
My love is gone
My hands are broke
