Track Name: When I Found You
Walk into the river one night
I was off walking all alone
Saw you put a hell of a fight
An I said your on your own
That's when I found you
That's when I found you

Gonna set some hell to these woods
I got a can of paint that's red
Figure by the time that I'm done
Half the town will be dead
That's when I found you
That's when I found you

Walkin 'round with a .44 in my hand
An I wonder what I will do
Think I'll blow a circle thru your mind
And that I know to be true
That's when I found you
That's when I found you

Walkin to the top of that hill
And I cried out, "What did I do?"
I took a life, I took a life
And that I know to be true
That's when I found you
That's when I found you
Track Name: Shepherds Pi
Maggots move in shepherds pi
The life you live is now a lie
Feathers fly, my gods down
Can't stand it when you're around

Broken records that smelt so good
Holding you it felt so good
Black teeth in a campground
Can't stand it when you're around

Maggots move in shepherds pi
The life you live is now a lie
Feathers fly my gods down
Can't stand it when you're around

Broken teeth and lady bugs
When I think of you, I think of love
Black teeth in a white ground
Can't stand it when you're not around
Track Name: Break a Ghost pt. 2
Hey pretty mamma, come an dance tonight
'Cause I feel like rock n' roll
Do the dirty dance, if we get the chance
Goin' down to Mexico
On down to Mexico

And Dixieland Man is a one-handed band
And he's doin' the best he can
Didn't know it then, but I knew it when
I was sleepin' with a ghost
I was sleepin' with a ghost

'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost

I'm headed down South, put the words in my mouth
Doin' the best I can
Didn't know it then, but I knew it when
I's becomin' a different man
I's becomin' a different man

So hey pretty mamma, come an dance tonight
'Cause I feel like rock n' roll
Do the dirty dance if we get the chance
On down to Mexico
On down to Mexico

'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
Oh it takes, so much to break a ghost
'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
Track Name: Break a Ghost pt. 3
Hey pretty mamma, come an dance tonight
'Cause I feel like rock n' roll
Do the dirty dance, if we get the chance
Goin' down to Mexico
On down to Mexico

And Dixieland Man is a one-handed band
And he's doin' the best he can
Didn't know it then, but I knew it when
I was sleepin' with a ghost
I was sleepin' with a ghost

'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost

I'm headed down South, put the words in my mouth
Doin' the best I can
Didn't know it then, but I knew it when
I's becomin' a different man
I's becomin' a different man

So hey pretty mamma, come an dance tonight
'Cause I feel like rock n' roll
Do the dirty dance if we get the chance
On down to Mexico
On down to Mexico

'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
Oh it takes, so much to break a ghost
'Cause it takes, a lot to break a ghost
Track Name: Head in the Sand
A camel walks through the eye of the needle
Angels dance on the head of a pin
A woman's voice comes from across the water
Telling me to listen in

She said
I have come climbing down the mountain
Through the snow and through the sand
To tell you all about the constellations
And the lines that trace your hand

She said
You are you were you know you God damn always will be
Just like the stars above that burn
A yellow sun is rising out of darkness
The now should now be your concern
Track Name: Pi in the Sky
See the sun rise
With my own eyes
What a surprise

The sun is way up high
Oh all alone in the sky
We're just a passin by

The sun is setting
But I ain't betting
On Anything

The sun is way
