Track Name: True Evil
There is true evil in here, turn and look away. There is true evil in here, look away. There is true evil in here, but no one wants to know. There is true evil in here, turn around. There is true evil in here, we know it in our hearts. We can't escape the pain in the promise of the dark. Standing at the station, waiting for a train but there's no one here but ghosts wanting to be anywhere but here, just to get away.
Track Name: Husbands
I never want to be a husband. A husband? Not a husband! A boyfriend or a lover maybe, but never a married man. I never want to be a soldier, a husband or a soldier, or a boyfriend to the modern teenage rock & roll disaster, but I love you and that's enough. I never want to be distracted, distracted from my passion. I am not pretending to be the person that you see. I could bury my feelings and lie about my conviction, but I never want to be a husband in the service of the Lord. And I love you and that's enough. But I love you and the rest can fuck off.
Track Name: Don't Let Go
I'm flown too close to the sun. I've grown too close to someone. I've felt a trembling at the slightest touch. I've known that feeling all too much. But the sun goes up, the sun goes down. Don't let go. The moon goes up the stars come around. Don't let go. What goes up must come down. Don't let go. From stronger stuff your heart was wound, so don't let go. I've ran the streets with aching feet. I've shivered icy cold in the baking heat. I remember the missing ones. I've buried forgotten sons. I've lost the war with everyone. Some things lost cannot be found.
Track Name: Rising Star
There's a rising star tonight, luminescent, warm, and white. Come and be my guiding light, your rising star tonight. There's a rising star tonight on the very edge of life. Your future shines so bright, your rising star tonight.
Track Name: Whoop Stop
That dream that some call death has barely escaped me. There's a vacant Texaco up ahead. Pull it over until the storm blows north. Shoot out the lights and watch the phantom freights unwind on down the line. The spirit awaits me on down the line, prairie darkness is all that you'll find. That dream that some call life has somehow escaped me. The caution lights will pause from breath to breath. Miles and miles of silence, there's not another soul for hours. Just bombed out cars and empty shells of trailer parks on down the line.
Track Name: The Last KISS Cover Band Show
She got her ticket to go to the rock & roll. Told every person she knows, going to the last KISS cover band show. So let's go.
