Track Name: Amy
Darlin’ Amy, God I love her, she’s the Devil in disguise
She don’t fear no God above her, prefers the taste of spit and fire
And I would bow down right before her, she could bring me to my knees
But the young don’t last forever, she gon’ die in ecstasy, she gon’ die in ecstasy yeah

Be courageous, be forgiving, be the air in every lung
Be the hero, be the villain, be the song that’s never sung
But don’t you ever be the darkness that takes my baby away from me
Tell the preacher he can have all but this one, ‘cos this one’s for you Amy
Yeah this one’s for you Amy

Acapella, arcangel, misty eyes that never see
Choose sanctuary, choose danger, but don’t choose the girl that always leaves
Don’t choose the girl that always leaves

True companion, true misfit, true to life or death’s right hand man
Guess I never had you figured, I was just a pawn in your plan
But just remember what I tell you, when it comes down we all have to pay
Makes no difference if you’re a giver or taker, the Lord has his hand on you Amy
The Lord has his hand on you Amy
Track Name: What I've Done
Well don't you cry for me boys, don't you cry for me
I'm where I ought to be for what I've done
Never been at peace lord, I've never been at peace
To you I must release my tainted soul

Go howling at that moon boys, go howling at that moon
He's only mocking you with truth untold
Forever roam this land boys, forever roam this land
And crush the stones to sand, with all your rage

Been running all my days lord, been running all my days
With eyes so cut and crazed, chasing you
Been running all my days, running all my days

So don't you cry for me boys, don't you cry for me
I'm where I ought to be for what I've done
Track Name: Fire
Baby put your hand in mine and drench it with your graveyard wine
I can't see me loving anybody but you
Hollow out my eyes and ears and leave room for me to disappear
My great escape from this life is within you

He's gonna take me right down to the wire
Watch my baby go now. he's on fire
He's gonna take me right down to the wire
Watch my baby go now he's on fire

Had years of derelict dreams and dread
You raise the roof I'll raise the dead
Shake them from the gutter to the sky
Well I seek no evil I sew no seeds
My hand's as regal as can be
I'll swim your ocean 'til it runs bone dry

He's gonna take me right down to the wire
Watch my baby go now, he's on fire yeah
He's gonna take me right down to the wire
Watch my baby go now he's on fire
Track Name: Right On Time
String lines and broken binds, the joy of silence all confined in her mind
And the stars align
Hope is here, hope is far, skimmin’ stones and wrecking cars
And darlin’, we’re right on time
Right on time

So grasp the wings of Emperor Night, the stowaways must hold on tight
We marvel at all we see
And the songs of shadows we’ll listen to
Break my bones use them for flutes
And darlin’, we’re right on time
Right on Time

So curse the country, curse the years, curse the things you hold so dear
Command the seas to engulf them all
And once your soul is clean to shine, I’ll be there, end of the line
And darlin’, we’re right on time
Right on time
