Track Name: I Hear a Hammer
I hear a hammer
Hammering on my wall
And I hear voices of a bar room brawl

Is it judgement day or am I in demand?
Or is it Lucifer?
Under his command
I hear a hammer

I smell wood smoke
Blowing through the trees
And I feel a forest fall to its knees

I'm a child of children born off the road
Gotta leave the city, leave it to erode
I hear a hammer

I hear it cutting down beauty, cutting down play
Cutting down the innocent, cutting through your grave

I hear a hammer
Hammering on my wall
And I hear voices of a bar room brawl

Is it judgement day or am I in demand?
Or is it Lucifer?
Under his command
I hear a hammer

Do you? Do you?
Do you hear a hammer?
Track Name: Musth Blues
Turn out the light, woman turn out the light
I can't get it right, no I can't get it right
Just turn out the light
It's better when you bite

Yeah you judge a man for his lust
But don't you get it woman
I'm in musth

I can't take the lead, no I can't take the lead
Do the deed, woman take my seed
Just take my seed
And you and I shall breed

You give yourself to a man you don't trust
Well I don't love you
I'm in musth

You can call me cruel, woman call me cruel
I was born a bull, I was born a bull
I was born a bull or I wasn't born at all

And no I'm not ashamed to stare at your bust
I'm not in love
I'm in musth

In musth, I got these musth blues
Track Name: (I Don't) See No Charlie
I don't see no Charlie, no
I don't see no Charlie, no
I don't see no Charlie
To take me away

I don't need my schoolbook, no
I don't need my schoolbook, no
I don't need my schoolbook today

I need my fix tonight in hell
I need my fix tonight, can't you tell?
I don't see no Charlie
Let your beast of burden be
Let your beast of burden free
I see no Charlie

I need my fix tonight in hell
I need my fix tonight, can't you tell?
I don't see no Charlie

I don't see no Charlie, no
I don't see no Charlie, no
I don't see no Charlie
To take me away
Track Name: Sweet Fountain
I love you sweet fountain
Track Name: Fear of God
You have a fear of God
And you loathe what lies within
You have a secret for a soul
And your songs are of sin

You run, you run, you run
Until you let your devil in

You have a need to bleed
And foster weakness with your wine
You sell minds for your gold
And buy divinity with your crime

You run, you run, you run
Until the God you fear is far behind

Your fear of God will grow and grow
Your hatred at heart will flow and flow

You have a fear of God
And you loathe what lies within
You have a secret for a soul
And your songs are of sin

You run, you run, you run
You're running, you're running, you're running
Until you let your devil in
Until you let your devil in
Track Name: Sailor Song
See the cheeky sailors' grin
She believes the bow
Then ahead you'll see land again
Give or take a vow

See your girl waltz away
Dancing to the rain
So close, so bold in play
She makes her joy from pain

O where are the crew?
Come and hear the sailors sing
A sailor song for you

Come below and rest awhile
Rest ye weary feet
Say your prayers before the aisle
And then I will retreat

O before you leave me blue
Come and hear your gift, the sailors sing
A sailor song for you
A sailor song for you
A sailor song for you
Track Name: To Be a Man
They tell me to be a man
Be a bullshitter
Make a lot of money and then die in line

They tell me to be a man
Be a go-getter
Go to war and leave your woman behind
Leave your woman behind

Grab a gun my son, you were born to bleed
To kill your brothers could be fun
It's what you need to be a man
it's what you need to be a man

Don't you read or write
Don't speak your heart
You'll feel better when you grow

They tell me to be the blues
Be the high mountains
Better the devil you know
Better the devil you know

Grab a gun my son, you were born to bleed
To kill each other could be fun
It's what you need to be a man
It's what you need to be a man

You will be a man
Or you will die trying
Track Name: Your Steed
A simple fate sweetened by simple dreams
On her feet, on her feet she shall go
Born and raised on a bright seagull doom
On her feet, on her feet she shall go

Her slow God will see she bears a load
But it's not quite time for us to burn
For us to burn
I hope your steed has a good eye

Golden beast with silver man and brazen smile
A bone apiece, a bone apiece for the fire
She gotta go, gotta fly gotta run
A bone apiece, a slow release she'll inspire

Her slow God will see she bears a load
But it's not quite time for us to burn
For us to burn
I hope your steed has a good eye
Track Name: The Circle Groom
Circle be the groom
Take a bride too soon
She wanna dress in white
Let her heart take flight

I do, I do
I do, I do

Square the union deal
Staring through the steel
Sell my blood in vain
Will you take my name?

I do, I do
I do, I do

She wanna be your bride
She wanna keep you tied
Do what you think is right

Circle be the groom
Making vows too soon
She wanna dress in white
Let her heart take flight

I do, I do
I do, I do
Track Name: Leah Jaye
She wears the scarves and silks of a cheetah
She gazes down at the sky beneath her
It's Leah Jaye, it's Leah Jaye!
Beneath the pyres and prizes of freedom
Every word her tongue shall sweeten
It's Leah Jaye, it's Leah Jaye!

She wonders why, why would her masters lie?
Solid bead gold eye
Tepid rain
Her pain blooms in micro moon
Solid bead gold room
Leah Jaye, you're insane!

She will come down and beat on a boulder
Turning the stone to wine and water
It's Leah Jaye, it's Leah Jaye!
She smokes her cars and dances her champagne
She leaves her every man with no name
It's Leah Jaye, it's Leah Jaye!

She wonders why, why would her masters lie?
Solid bead gold eye
Tepid rain
Her pain blooms in a micro moon
Solid bead gold room
Leah Jaye, you're insane!

She's deep eyed
She's all pride
She's all yours
She's all mine
