Track Name: I Don't Know
This guy's a painter and he's real suave
He's got a waistcoat on and he just got thirty thou
He mixed twenty shades of red to paint that one red stripe
And he looks at me like I can't breathe the air around his life

What do I know?
I'm an animal
Ain't that what you said
I'm an animal?
I don't know any better
'cause I'm an animal
I either scream in ecstacy
or I wannna die

But I don't know about your paint
It all looks the same to me
But what do I know
I'm a wild beast can't you see?

The man who says he knows about dreams
is asking me to talk to him or so it seems
I start to tell and then he puts his finger on my lips
'We have to move on,' he says, 'enough about your dreams.
I'm the expert and you're the patient,' and he pulls me like a zip
But I don't like it when they pretend
And I don't like his phoney compliments
He says he knows and what do I know
I'm either peaceful or I feel like breaking a wall

What do I know?
I'm an animal
Ain't that what you said
I'm an animal?
I don't know any better
'cause I'm an animal
I either scream in ecstasy
or I wannna die

But I don't believe you care one little gram
about anyone's dreams but just your little lines
You're a charlatan
Why do you lie?
You lie you lie
And now you have you've made mad
and I can't control the way I feel
I can't control the way I feel
Can't control the way I feel
I can't control the way I feel
I can't control the way I feel

You see these hands?
They're just a disguise
for the big big paws I hide inside
My smooth skin hides the softness of fur
And I'm gonna spend my time playing round with your blood

'Cause I'm an animal
Ain't that what you said
I'm an animal
And I don't know any better
I don't know no thank you
I don't know no please
I'm an animal
and I don't want your peace
No no no thank you
I can't control the way I feel
No no no thank you
I can't control the way I feel
No no no thank you
I can't control the way I feel
No no no thank you
I can't control the way I feel
Track Name: God is My Devil
A rider on a black horse brings a gun
A rider on a white horse brings no fun
A rider on a red horse brings a rope
The lamb shakes his body, washes his neck with soap

John, don't you like me 'cause I'm a soldier?
Don't you want me now that I'm older?
I cast myself in the lake of fire
Once I am colder
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier

It's all where you came from, Johnny
In my country God is the devil
Lambs are lonely
Selling souls is a business
But no one sits on a throne
If you come over here
You too will grow a horn
If you come over here
You too will grow a horn

John, don't you like me 'cause I'm a soldier?
Don't you want me now that I'm older?
I cast myself in the lake of fire
Once I am colder
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier

But they'll make marriage supper of you
What kind of gratitude is that
If you end up as food
I'm an outsider
on the inside of your world
And I wanna touch you
Why do you cry?
If I wanna tie
you to I?
Why, why
Why do you cry?
Why, why
Why do you cry?

John, don't you like me 'cause I'm a soldier?
Don't you want me now that I'm older?
I cast myself in the lake of fire
Once I am colder
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
John, he don't like me 'cause I'm a soldier
'Cause I'm a soldier
'Cause I'm a soldier
'Cause I'm a soldier
'Cause I'm a soldier
Track Name: James
Our blood is the same colour
It even tastes the same
James
James
Isn't that your name?
James
James
Isn't that your name?
James
James
Isn't that your name?

A drop of your blood
A strand from my hair
The dirt from your cheek
The words of a prayer
Stars in the sky
Won't look too good tonight
I got voodoo in the veins
But you already love me anyway

Our blood is the same colour
It even tastes the same
James
James
Isn't that your name?
James
James
Isn't that your name?
James
James
Isn't that your name?

Your face makes me stir
I'm trying to hide
A handshake is a harmful touch
When every beat of sanity has died
Stars in the sky
Won't look too good tonight
I got voodoo in the veins
But you already love me anyway

Our blood is the same colour
It even tastes the same
James
James
Isn't that your name?
James
James
Isn't that your name?
James
James
Isn't that your name?

How can it end well James?
How can it end well James?
How can it end well James?
How can it end well James?

Our blood is the same colour
It even tastes the same
James
James
Isn't that your name?

Track Name: 3 Crows & a Bottle of Gin
Three crows and a bottle of gin
They think it's medicine
Flap wings, peck each other's eyes
They drink and whisper lies
But I'm wondering
Tell me 'cause I'm ill
How such small things
can be so evil?

How?
How?
How?
How?
How?
How?

Three crows and a bottle of gin
I lie to them it's heroin
Flap wings, peck each other right
They drink and talk all night
But I'm wondering
Tell me 'cause I'm ill
How such small things
can be so evil?

How?
How?
How?
How?
How?
How?
Track Name: Scum
I'm scum, brother
I'm bad like no other
You can suck me like a sugar cube
All you'll taste is my dead-end mood
You're a work of art brother
You've cut your face like no other
Polished like an eighties drum
All the girls want you to meet their mums
but

I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come say
I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come play?
I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come?
I'm scum
I'm scum
Do you wanna come?

Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?

I'm scum, brother
I'm a writer, not a lover
Like school you smudge me with a rubber
and your homework is getting praise
now go tell your mother
It just so happens you can only erase me with a razor
Blood Makes Noise like Straight, No Chaser
I'm an animal born of aching machines
I thought you said we should never blame our genes
but

I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come say
I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come play?
I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come?
I'm scum
I'm scum
Do you wanna come?

Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?
Do you wanna come?

I'm an offender
Not a pretender
I destroy rooms 'cause boxes oppress me
Don't stress me, don't try to impress me
If you wanna understand just lean in and push me
I drink the blood of this world and I don't sleep
I'm slinging drugs and music like Return of the G
I'm Eve, the one who lusted to live
If you wanna be a poet boy then cut your wrist and bleed
but

I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come say
I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come play?
I'm scum
I'm scum
You wanna come?
You wanna come?
I'm scum
I'm scum
Do you wanna come?
Track Name: Red Vein Pop
To move between
between each sound
like a ghost
seeing red
to move between
between the shadows
playing dead
playing dead

Black Dog says
'I hate myself'
Black Dog says
'Take me off the shelf'
I saw him standing
mad with sound
I just want him
to be found

He said 'No,'
He said 'No,
I don't want no Rock and Roll'
He said 'No,'
He said No,
I don't want no Classical
I just want
I just want
the sound to stop
Turn on the radio and hear
My Red Vein Pop'


He said 'No,'
He said 'No,
I don't want no Rock and Roll'
He said 'No,'
He said No,
I don't want no Jazz at all
I just want
I just want
the sound to stop
Turn on the radio and hear
My red vein pop'
Track Name: Till Death Do Us Party
You spilled your ice, I spilled my eyes
There's nothing I can whisper to you in this bracket of time
But the eclipse of your cigarette is a childhood suicide
No grown-up ever knows that's the worst, most precious kind

This is my last go around

Till death do us party
Till death do us party
Amen, Amen
Amen, Amen
Till death do us party
Till death do us party
Amen, Amen
Amen, Amen
Till death do us party
Till death do us party
I love you and I always will

I slowdanced your eyes through a headline of smoke
Charlie said 'Hey, I'm from Deptford you know
I know how to be a gangster,'
And I just thought boy oh boy oh boy
Are you a good dancer
You know my thoughts on modern life
It's raining knots in my hands tonight

This is my last go around

Till death do us party
Till death do us party
Amen, Amen
Amen, Amen
Till death do us party
Till death do us party
Amen, Amen
Amen, Amen
Till death do us party
Till death do us party
I love you and I always will
Track Name: Light Night
The broken bones of phones
Disconnect the walls
Hands washed dry but still
dirty in their bones
Strings of meat pulled out
Bones turn into clouds
Eyes still open
You took my hope and
Moon I'm going blind
Moon I'm going blind
Moon I'm going blind
Moon I'm going blind

You have made me mad
Made hands kill your god
Made eyes love your hair
Made mind rip and tear
Moon I'm going blind
Moon I'm going blind
Moon I'm going blind
Moon I'm going blind

Moon I'm going blind
Sleep I cannot find
Looking at you yawn
Bloody Mouth
I've carved the dawn

Moon I'm going blind
Don't feast on my eyes
Pulse split open
You took my hope and
Moon I'm going blind
Don't feast on my eyes
Don't feast on my eyes
Don't feast on my eyes
Moon I'm going blind
Don't feast on my eyes
Don't feast on my eyes
Don't feast on my eyes
Moon I'm going blind
Don't feast on my eyes
Don't feast on my eyes
Don't feast on my eyes
Track Name: Platinum
I used to think my teeth were platinum
That they could bite through any rock
And it stung my pride to find out
Just how wrong I was
Now I walk the streets just counting
The strangers running right through me
The emptiness of fire haunts me
As I light a cigarette to breathe
There's no point to keeping secrets
But we've all got something special up our sleeves
Infidelity, lies, addiction
And the Lucky ones, all Three
If I take it right to heart
Would you be platinum tonight?
Would you rock me as I fall asleep
Clutching onto my birthright?
If I just go ahead and cross the bar
Would you be platinum tonight?
Would you go and run my old haunts for me
As you coolly shake my hand?
Would you make sure my teeth are clean?
They last such a long time
I want the earth to feel me scream
As she bites me down

Platinum
White unicorn
Platinum
White gold

I'm a heroine I've seen
the dirty side of clean

Platinum
White swan
Platinum
Ice cold

I'm a heroine I've seen
I've seen
Track Name: I'm Suprised
I thought feelings were perfect ways to have a good time
I owe you a whole book, I know
It's about time
But sometimes I get distracted
By a black horse in my mind
And I get ridden on
I get ridden all the time

I say ride me
Ride me
I say ride me
Ride me

I have to meet him
He tells me not to meet him
I smell entirely of dirt
and love's feet
Stealing lines from a book about Blood and Guts
When you're asleep it hurts
All night
And I get ridden
I get ridden all the time
And I get ridden
I get ridden all the time

And I say ride
Ride
Ride
Ride
Ride
Ride
Ride
Ride
Ride
Ride me

You wear your clothes on your face
And your black hands hold up space
I'm surprised
