Track Name: Third Degree Burns
And in this corner
Of your freezing room
Where the bad, bad dreams reside

I'm soaking in the boiling oils
That leave naught but my bones
And I'll keep it to myself

You’re sitting in the Devil's hand
With your ego in a paper bag
And your third degree burns

And this pounding headache that sways me to and fro
I am black and blue from head to toe
I am hearing only wails and groans
Well it leaves me clutching at your shins
It leaves me broken up again
Track Name: Bad Hands
Don't die stupid save yourself
From crooked folk like me
Look around paint a canvas
Of everything you see
And when you have to meet yer maker
Nothing stays the same
You're hands are full, an empty camera
Shooting empty frames

Imperfect image of yourself
Stays another day
Protect yer beautiful self
And paint your life away

Don't look clumsy make a face
To keep your place in line
Speak the lingo talk in tongues
To make it all sound fine
And when you want to keep it simple
Make it all deranged
And when you want to save your breath
You keep it all contained

You fucked me over so I fucked them back

Imperfect image of yourself stays another day
Protect yer beautiful self and paint your life away
You fucked me over so I fucked them back
Imperfect image of yourself stays another day
And your camera with no film
Will throw it all away
Track Name: Tell Yer Loved Ones
You were rough around the edge
I sand you down
I was quite a lot to bear
I made you proud

You made me think
That you could do no wrong
I close my eyes
But they were welded shut

Out of the blue
Out of the daze
Track Name: Pointing and Laughing
To want to live and be ashamed
You’re far too young to stay up this late
To watch the rest and paint a dance
It’s far too late

I had you
If only you had me too
Track Name: Tell Yer Loved Ones (Reprise)
Once I thought I saw a cloud burst
The children of the town came to feast their eyes on
What they thought was a violent beauty
From the “Sermon on the Mount”
We filled out cheeks with popcorn
Out of the blue
Out of the daze
