Track Name: Capitol Song
I put on my best dress
I walked up the Capitol steps
Ran my fingers on cold stone
Was reminded of your lips

In the darkest of darkness
When my heart sings the hardest
I wander these marble halls
Talk with them about why you're gone

But you've no use for history
And I wander there aimlessly
With your jackets and small words
Whispered only so selfishly

When will you be done leaving me?
Track Name: Rita Mae
She says that murderers they live in symmetrical houses
And I believe what she says
They line the graveyard where you drank alone
Holding hands with your grand daddy's death

I heard you singing "Hey, Rita Mae's my gal,
She's saving my life while she sends me straight to hell
She knows me well, but 5 years from here,
I'll remember your name, your'e my love, my long lost belle-
But Rita Mae's my gal."

Now, I know that murderers they sleep between your bed
And the company you keep
The fear on my insides screaming why, as I let you bleed
Rinsing red between my sheets and onto me

You were singing, "Hey, Rita Mae's my gal,
She's saving my life while she sends me straight to hell
She knows me well, but 5 years from here,
I'll remember your name, your'e my love, my long lost belle-
But right now, Rita Mae's my gal."
Track Name: Halloween
It was you and me and the autumn leaves
Walking arm in arm like it's Halloween
And the sound swelled around us
Radio in the kitchen was on
I hope the band plays like that when I'm gone

And then it's you and me and the autumn leaves
With the sinister weaving funeral wreaths
There were stars all around it
And your car and your cigarette smoke
I hope the band plays like that when I go

And now it's you and me and the autumn leaves
With our barrels burned we begin to see
Seasons bending around us
Nothing's left and we thought this was-
I thought this was home
And now the band plays on and on
Track Name: Simple One
You always were the simple one
Perfect golden tan from my sun
There must be something more on the inside
There must be something yours, that I can't find

So take my bat and swing
Thorough my air so sweetly
Your home run's on me this time
This time

The city's wrapped up now on your doorstep
I'd rather pass it on that open it
I'll take the good luck train to the outside
The streets were sweeter when they were all mine

So take my bat and swing
Thorough my air so sweetly
Your home run's on me this time
This time
Track Name: Tell the Devil
You are my sorrow
You are my sun
And you'll die tomorrow
By sugarcane gun

And that's why I love you,
Dying everyday
But darlin' happy endings
They bore me anyway

Tell the devil I love him
Tell him how hard I try
To keep this foothold above him
While you howl along side

In the sin, if he only knew
The sweetest men will bow to you
Track Name: Drowning's Better (with Your Friends)
And aren't we great friends
Sharing in certain death
With your stones on my tongue
And my key around your neck

I think I figured it out
Can we try again?
This time you hold your breath
And I'll cling for dear life to your hands
And we'll jump again
Drowning's better with your friends

And aren't we great friends
As our scars will lament
40 years worth of blood on my dress

And I know some might say,
"Darlin', you're a disgrace
With that click in your chest
And that wreck in your place."

But now I figured it out
So let's try again
This time you hold your breath
And I'll cling for dear life to your hands
And we'll sink again
Drowning's better with your friends
Track Name: One Note
All I've got is just one note
It's getting harder to hold
Though the days are getting longer
The light does me no good

Rainy days are upon us now
Your hands are wet
My pitch keeps falling down

But I sing out my one note
'Til you hear what I have to say
Forgive my imperfect tone
My timing's a little delayed
hey hey

Slippery hands that keep you from
hanging on every word I've sung

So I sing out my one note
'Til you hear what I have to say
Forgive my imperfect tone
My timing's a little delayed
hey hey
Track Name: Fading
I feel myself fading
And what have I to show?
I have been this old before
But never this alone

I feel my self fading
You'd say it's in my head
But I have seen the open wounds
Please know I speak the truth
I feel myself fading

Now, you will see the world my friend
And I may follow close
Or I may stay surrendering
All I once would hold

The yellowing hours
Blazing through my bed
And the way your face was bending
Toward the ending when I said

I feel myself fading
Track Name: Samuel
Samuel, how do you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye
Your baby's gone, the valley's dry
Samuel how you keep that smile?

Mary's gone, dead in the ground
Scattered roses all around
Marigolds and daisies white
Her favorite color, September light
Samuel how do you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye?

The valley's dead
Your cattle thin
Taxman come back again
Fat man don't give a damn
About the blood on your hands
Samuel how do you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye?

The day will come
Your final rest
Your weary head
Your savior's breast
Mary's hand
A piece of land
Late summer light
Lord, I understand!
Samuel, how you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye!
