Track Name: Rough Skin
I pulled back my wedding ring
Only place not callousing
I ache to think of these hard hands
Caressing your face my holy land

I pulled back my wedding ring
Only place not callousing
I ache to think of this hard mind
Giving it all till the end of time

Rough skin that’s smoothed the lines
Rough skin but a love refined
Rough skin an unhindered mind
Rough skin

I pulled back my wedding ring
Only place not callousing
I ache to think of this hard heart
Slipping away from your tender art
Track Name: Busted
I owe you everything but you keep my credit dangling
Feeling like the antichrist when my words escape to your different light

Oh you make me feel
You make me feel so
Busted

Oh busted

You enchant me with greyness but bring the day out in pain
Your blues break the bleak days given light to a darkened way


Can I sing you away
Can I forget the day
When you flooded my life
And ah finally bound my eyes

So many bleary faces never comforting to know another’s pain
If the vague grimaces aren’t the same in a way
Track Name: Black Heart
My black heart reaches down, down, down
To find the secret you won’t talk about

But I won’t follow you down baby
You got to take that road by yourself
Take it to the end to find your own way out

Chorus
I won’t be there with my black heart

My black heart reaches down, down, down
To find the spaces underground

My black heart reaches down, down, down
To find the ruby you won’t bring out

My black heart
My black heart
My black heart
Track Name: Reluctant
I will keep running you down
Your reluctant crown
Is a tempting prize
I’ve got to have

You jump and jive
Swerve then dive
You think I’ll fall
But I’ve got it bad now

I will lead the way

I will take the van
Draw out the plans
Conquer divide
I got to have it

Bring the feast
From west to east
High and low
Cause I’ve got it bad now
Track Name: One Night
You feel like
It’s all been done before
You’re just another ghost
Walking out the door

Sometimes you get excited
Sometimes you get excited
Sometimes you get excited
It’s all wrong, it’s all wrong

Sometimes you get it right
Sometimes you get it wrong
Sometimes you get it right,
It’s a song.

You keep from losing hope
You say it’s all just a joke
But when you look inside
There’s a spark that hides

One night
You will find everything you need
One night
You will know, you will know
