Track Name: Black Snake Moan
Black Snake Moan

Lying on a pallet
In this sinkhole of a city
In a shack of corrugated tin
All liquored up and sweating, baby
I am sideways in my skin
I am positively poisonous
I am absolutely stoned
Let me tell you about
The black snake moan

This is where I live, baby
The underbelly of the two-backed beast
This where you live too, baby
And once you get a taste
There ain’t no peace
You can be a black hearted sinner
Or a blue eyed saint
Either way, when your cover is blown
You’ll be down in the basement
Doing the black snake moan

This ain’t the first time you have heard it, baby
You have heard it in a dream
And in this dream, you were straddling something
And in this dream, you were pushing hard up against something
And after a while, you didn’t feel nothing but the rhythm
And it felt so good
It made you want to scream

I don’t feel nothing but muscles and nerves
I can’t see nothing but shadowy forms
I ain’t thought about nothing but the hour of my death
Since the day that I was born
I am crying out for a drug to get me higher
A woman to get me off
I am crying out for Jesus to take me home
But every sound I make sounds like
The black snake moan
Every sound I make sounds like
The black snake moan
Track Name: Automatic
Automatic

God and the devil in the cocktail hour
Mixed teeth and tail
Mixed thorn and flower
Mixed hell and heaven
Will and won’t
A body that dies and a soul that don’t

There ain’t no justice in this world
That’s all you need to know
The lion-hearted man receives the same divine consideration
As the carrion crow

Hate is automatic
It’s the nature of the beast
It’s automatic
It’s the squeaky wheel that get’s the grease
It’s automatic
It’s written in the stars
Hate is automatic
It’s love that’s hard

I will take this needle
I will take this dye
And all this dark momentum form the death of love
Over my heart I will draw a dagger
And three drops of blood

Hate is automatic
It’s the nature of the beast
It’s automatic
It’s the squeaky wheel that get’s the grease
It’s automatic
It’s written in the stars
Hate is automatic
It’s love that’s hard

Now that the sky is crying
Will you annoint these angel wings?
Release me from this stumbling faith
This crippling doubt
This never ending pain
I have been thirsty for so long
Why don’t you let it rain?

Let it rain

What’s it gonna be
Hope or the absence of hope?
What’s it gonna be
Light or the absence of light?
What’s it gonna be
The ditch or the honeysuckle in the ditch?
What’s it gonna be
Bondage or the blood red wine?

Hate is automatic
It’s the nature of the beast
It’s automatic
It’s the squeaky wheel that get’s the grease
It’s automatic
It’s written in the stars
Hate is automatic
It’s love that’s hard

Hate is automatic
It’s poison in the blood
Hate is automatic
We’re all creatures of the mud
Hate is the black dog always chained up in the yard
Hate is automatic
It’s love that’s hard

And faith is no protection
It’s just a place to hide
No man can stand against the rising of the tide
Hate is automatic when you’re trembling in the dark
Hate is automatic
It’s love that’s hard
Track Name: Crawl
Crawl


Don’t take me over, you’re not master
Don’t take me over, I’ll never be your slave
Don’t take me over, I will surrender
But I will not be saved

I am a sinner, there is no river
I am a sinner, there is no rising tide
I am a sinner, come to me slowly
Across the great divide

Don’t make this a prayer just because I call
I’m stripping it down to the skin and all
This flesh and bone
Is going home
Let me crawl
Let me crawl
Let me crawl

There was beauty all in her body
There was beauty all in her long black hair
There was beauty all in the way she moved
But she’s not there

Don’t make this a prayer just because I call
I’m stripping it down to the skin and all
This flesh and bone
Is going home
Let me crawl
Let me crawl
Let me crawl

Crawl
I want to feel it
Crawl
Don’t ever heal it
Crawl
This jagged edge is mine
All mine

Halleluah! I am a dead man
Halleluah! I am a wounded soul
Halleluah! this is my heaven
This is my hole

Don’t make it a prayer just because I call
I’m stripping it down to the skin and all
This flesh and bone
Is going home
Let me crawl
Let me crawl
Let me crawl
Track Name: Spit
Spit

The world began in darkness
I brought along the day
And in an idle moment
I made myself a creature from the clay
Then I went on about my business
How can I make you understand?
You don’t amount to much
I just gathered up some dust
And I spit into my hands

It’s my spit that made you rise and walk
My spit makes you stagger and bleed
My spit makes you deny my name
My spit makes you believe
It’s my spit

I wish you every blessing
I mean you every harm
I fill your head with visions of Johanna
Then I keep you on the farm
I am the fount of every blessing
The source of every ill
I am the crowing cock
I am the sweet honey in the rock
I am the poison in the bitter pill

It’s my spit that makes the black dog howl
My spit makes the copperhead strike
My spit punishes the wicked
And the innocent alike
It’s my spit
My spit

I wounded you with Paradise
I blinded you with second sight
I keep you dwelling in the darkness
I keep you reaching for the light
And still
You worship me

I am the seeds of your destruction
I am the breath of life
I made you love your brother
I made you love your brother’s wife

I sold you down the river
Betrayed you to the enemy
It’s my spit that made Golgotha
It’s my spit that made Gethsemane

It’s my spit that makes you holy
It’s my spit that makes you vile
My spit makes sure the spirit and the flesh
Will never reconcile

It’s my spit that makes you rise and walk
My spit makes you stagger and bleed
My spit makes you deny my name
My spit makes you believe

You were mine to drown the first time
This time you will burn
From dust you were created
And to dust you will return

My spit
Track Name: Say Damn
Say Damn

I wear a crooked crown of spiritual fire
The loyal opposition in the angel choir
My nerves are tuned to a fever pitch
All four wheels in the rhythm ditch
Down in the rhythm ditch

Hanging on the cross between two thieves
One of them hollered, “Master, I believe”
I said, “I was born to suffer
I was born to bleed
I chose you
You didn’t choose me
Now do you see the light?
Allright”

Baby, I’m gonna take your hand
Baby, I’m gonna be your man
Kiss you on the mouth ‘til the sugar ran
And your eyes roll back

Make your baby say
Damn

I can bear a might witness in this veil of tears
I lived among you for thirty-three years
I loved a woman
She made me sing
She made me tremble
She shook that thing
Now do you see the light?
Allright

Baby, I’m gonna take your hand
Baby, I’m gonna be your man
Kiss you on the mouth ‘til the sugar ran
And your eyes roll back
Make your baby say
Damn

Yeah, right
There’s something you got to understand
Yeah, right
I am a God and you’re nothing but a man
But there’s something that you can do I never will again
Say Damn
Make your baby say Damn
Say Damn
Make your baby say Damn

I breathed in sex
I breathed in fire
The terrible beauty of desire
I’m a natural born man
I ain’t no saint
They say the end is near
But I know it ain’t
Now do you see the light?
Allright

Baby, I’m gonna take your hand
Baby, I’m gonna be your man
Kiss you on the mouth ‘til the sugar ran
And your eyes roll back

Make your baby say
Damn
Track Name: Bring The Night
Bring The Night

I have made peace with my connection
The Holy Ghost syringe
Ain’t nobody in this world
Can convince me of my sins

Bring the night
Bring the night
Bring the night down
Anoint me with your love again

I will sell my blood for money
I will bring confusion to the enemy
I will pawn my body if I have to
But I will give my love away for free

Bring the night
Bring the night
Bring the night down
Anoint me with your love again
Anoint me with you love again


Don’t look away
Don’t walk away
Don’t turn away from me

Bring the night
Bring the night
Bring the night down
Anoint me with your love again
Anoint me with your love again
Track Name: Rise, Dead Man
Rise Dead Man

Lazarus came with a pale complexion
Lazarus came with an empty pale
When Lazarus came he was table rasa
But a soul brother done changed his fate
A soul brother done changed his fate

When Lazarus came he was cold in the coffin
Man in a black suit led the way
Lazarus came with a bad transmission
But they fixed it and he drove away
But they fixed it and he drove away

Rise dead man
Rise dead man and follow after me
Rise dead man
Rise dead man and follow after me

Lazarus was gone for thirty-six hours
Was he in heaven or was he in hell?
Lazarus knows God’s little secret
Yeah, he knows but he won’t tell
Yeah, he knows but the won’t tell

Rise dead man
Rise dead man and follow after me
Rise dead man
Rise dead man and follow after me

Death ain’t got no cold dominion
Death ain’t got no hold on me
Death is old and Death is weak now
Death ain’t got no stingaree
Death ain’t got no stingaree

Jesus had a line on the inside information
Jesus knew that his time was nigh
He said, “Boys, I must be going
But here’s a little something to remember me by
Here’s a little something to remember me by”

Rise dead man
Rise dead man and follow after me
Rise dead man
Rise dead man and follow after me
Track Name: Again
Again

What song is this on last breath radio?
More felt than heard and gone too soon
Through the broken slats in the summer house
I coordinate the crescent moon

I could be the fire in your belly
I could be the bottle in your hand
I could be the proof that there’s an inch between a monster and a man

Again
Again
The secret underneath the skin
Again
The whisper in the blood
The body covers and conceals
The spirit rises and reveals

I choose the deepest water
I choose the flickering candle flame
Swimming out into the sacred undertow
I could swear I hear my name

Again
Again
The secret underneath the skin
Again
The whisper in the blood
The body covers and conceals
The spirit rises and reveals
Again
Again

Break the dam and let the water in
Let the river carry me down
I am mud with legs
Flesh, teach me how to swim
I am more than mud with legs
I know that I am so much more than mud with legs
Spirit
Teach me how to drown

Where the solid meets the liquid form
Where the object meets the eye
Where the bullet meets the bone
Where the earth meets the sky
When the beheld meets the beholder
Where the cries of supplication meet the listening ear
Where the human voice and the twelve notes of the scale
Meet the music of the spheres
Again

Again
Again
The secret underneath the skin
Again
The whisper in the blood
The body covered and concealed
The spirit risen and revealed
Again
Again

What song is this on last breath radio
Again
Track Name: Serpent On The Fuselage
Serpent On The Fuselage


Chinese girl with a Walkman on
Her bra shows through her blouse
Her eyes say, somebody, hurt me please
The taste of copper is in her mouth

That guy’s got something wrong with him
He’s walking, but his legs ain’t working right
He’s walking like Coltrane played the saxophone
Yeah, he’s beautiful
Like a dying bird is beautiful
Like a wounded soul is beautiful

There’s a leather jacket on a nail
There’s a woman in a white corsage
A couple standing by an old Corsair
There’s a serpent’s tail on the fuselage

I think of my father as this handsome ghost
Hovering over his boyhood home in Saginaw
Looking down on the women that he loved
I wish I could see the things that he saw

There’s a leather jacket on a nail
There’s a woman in a white corsage
A couple standing by an old Corsair
There’s a serpent’s tail on the fuselage

Why do the good ones have to die?
I don’t care about the rest
God in his infinite wisdom
I guess

Thank you, Mata Hari for destroying my faith
Thank you, Delilah for betraying me
Thank you, Salome for cutting off my head like that
Thank you, Mary for some small comfort

There’s a leather jacket on a nail
There’s a woman in a white corsage
A couple standing by an old Corsair
There’s a serpent’s tail on the fuselage
There’s a serpent’s tail on the fuselage
There’s a skeleton dancing on the fuselage
Track Name: Glory
Glory

I have a broken wing, a broken wing, broken wing
I have a broken wing, broken wing, broken wing
I have a radiant heart, radiant heart, radiant heart
I have a radiant heart, a radiant heart

Glory

I see it clear I am profane
I see it clear I am divine
I see it clear, the great divide
Between the spirit and the spine
And we all dance around the fire
With this one last deep desire
To consecrate, to coalesce
The spirit and the flesh

Glory

This world will never break my heart
The rocks and the water will never wear my edges down
I will linger when I kiss your lips
I will rise up singing when the trumpet sounds

I am a man, and so I am
I am a man, and so I must
I am a man, and some day soon I will return to dust
I am a god, and I will reunite and realign
I am a god, and I will make it whole this time

Make it whole, make it whole, make it whole this time

Glory

And all we have is just this night, is just this night, is just this night
And all we have is just this night
And all we know is in the dark, there is a light, there is a light
And all we know is in the dark
There is a light
