Heddbuzz Never forgot about the brotherhood but I've switched to cassettes since we last touched base. Nice one. The words 'bonus tracks' mean exactly what they imply, too. BONUS. Favorite track: Supernatural Dusk (live).

In my new house Number fifteen Turquoise and dirt wears a houndstooth dress The silk noose perfume of cold flesh sick with thrills Is deadly If you're poisoned by her quills She's a magnet for fires She commands the heat burning gasoline Catching roving eyes I can't compete with the matches poised to strike Got a Heart of wax Sculpted by our heated past Her name is carved with the barks of vagrant dogs Drawing arsonists to ignite her vacant house She's a magnet for fires She commands the heat burning gasoline Catching roving eyes I can't compete with the matches poised to strike And I'd die again for the chance to burn alive Gray mesa of the vague Smoke signals haze over the open range Obscured my faith degrades Now the sleep temple is a palace full of incendiary things And the totem pole where I hide my strength lays splintered in decay Melt the sands of time to placid pool Hide beneath sheen I need an exit sign to guide my way Guide my way I can't escape the memory It's part of me now She cauterized my injuries No bleeding her out Echo the flame the night is on fire Sleep under sheets of acid rain Echo the flame Echo the flame the night is on fire I can't resist I need to break the plane Hands in pain I can feel her, feel her again In flames I can feel her, feel her again In vain I can feel her, feel her again Ashamed I can feel her, feel her Caught in the iron jaws of repeat dreams I need an amputation Set me free She's a magnet for fires

Thrust in the shadows Three sided bayonet Bound to strangers though battles Through the hi-gloss shades of red Lipstick on her teeth again Packs of escaped criminals Run through the wild expanse Owls scratching at my window The night stains my steel resolve Deep inside I know it's wrong When you live your life in limbo Nothing tames the pangs of love No result Cabin fever setting in Nostalgia razors slash this braided rope Back into threads Draw the drapes and paint the window Never see the light again Patterns keep her under skin In my blood In my bones In my head Empty vessels make the most sound Living in a future ghost town Abandon ship is all I hear Silence is so crystal clear In the woods at night You're not safe without the sound In the pines above Her parliament of owls Tracks you down In a bed of needles Beyond the safety of your lies Every dose of hope is lethal Every word a knife Always on the lam Forever nursing wounded limbs Never innocent again Again my life governed by A sisterhood of birds in flight They're wise Who am I Swinging from their gallows (Red) Dead beats repeat from rounded wings Their call is deep and stuttering My body hurts my mind is weak I've lost control it's plain to see My life governed by A sisterhood of birds in flight They're wise Who am I Swinging from their gallows

Your funeral incense smoke Hangs overhead Like a black umbrella The siren song that the truth evokes Lures me to a landscape of war-torn terror What would I do Without you Shading me from the shinning light Wander blindly burnt by the sun Without a lovelorn specter to fight No one knows how to drive in this town Operators on the line dialed-in to run you down leave you without help glassy icebound eyes echo hollow black sound With red X's to market Pale skin draped in wet fabric Crushed like a carpenter ant into carpet Nailed up on wood Limbless in limbo Speed through the traffic light crash like a cymbal No one knows how to drive in this town Operators on the line disconnect and run you down leave you without help my friend I see the light at the bitter end I need you here to keep me in the dark So I can continue to play pretend When the fantasy dissolves and the mystery is solved Without all the lovely questions All that's left are ugly answers The friction I needed is gone Black Umbrella take my hand pull me with the wind Umbrella if you fold Open up again Umbrella hold me close Be my second Be my second skin Umbrella where you end That's where I begin The friction I needed is long gone To Hell Obsidian asphalt Usher the new age Will dawn My black umbrella deflected the freezing rain From over my head To right down in front of me On this frozen road I lost my grip My heart sank down into my Belly as my tires slipped Nothing is cheap when you have to pay the price No road is safe when it's covered in ice That's when your handle on me broke Gave up the chase I let you go Out of control Time to take my turn Sometimes you have to crash and burn Drive heavy rain flood this path I'm on Sun-drenched I'll harden in the mud Drive heavy rain Break umbrella storm Sometimes you have to come undone

Sad eyes grow verdant Lush from the rain Don't make me nervous I can't shoot straight Good time hyenas Sprung from their cage Someone sunk a file in their wedding cake Now they're on the prowl making new mistakes Lonely makes a spark that lights the fuse Pull the plug and lose your life support blues Trash in the alley Fuzz on the scene Uncanny valley Girls drink for free Put them in the shed Hands don't come clean Dressed to the the teeth Drenched to the skin Skin paper thin Blood in the water when they fell in Too deep too fast too learned to swim I should have tried to save 'em But I let 'em drowned I should have amputated Now it's rotting off I should have barricaded But I let them in I should have never let it Boil down to this Put 'em on the saw The soft pulse machine

Deer in fear On the highway in your head Jangle your spurs Let them know your there The night is clear The air is weird Stare into the bullseye I need a brimstone wedding band I need a witness to our end I'll take the devil's hand And cross you out Grow thick gray matted fur white ash in urn Remnants of the mask I wore All my human traits Slowly slip away Howling in the moonlight I need a brimstone wedding band I need a witness to our end I'll take the devil's hand And cross you out Buried neck deep in the sand The tide is rolling in Farewell my faithful friend I'll watch you drowned Like a deer in fear Escape the shaking mountain Barefoot on broken shale Like a deer in fear Don't fight it Run like hell Through Thunderbolts and lightning Red thorns and stormy veil Like a deer in fear The wolves are on your tail Deep in the cataclysm Weep through the winding trails Like a deer in fear With hellhounds are on your heels Sprint through the hunting fields Cruel crosshairs force your will Like a deer in fear You know its shoot to kill Through wire past the signs To double yellow lines Like a deer in fear You're blinded by the light

Luna moth in a beam of light Foxfire on the forest floor Yellow ivory skeleton key Break the seal on your secret door Crosswinds blow Sheer the wool Naked eyes now Sear right through Full moon in fever Blind fire dark corridors Her roots run deeper Through the cold black sand Between you and my corpse Dew drops feed the flowers at night Glitter glade under Ersa's robes Pale horse for the dying light Rolling fog flood the valley below Oh oh Black boots on the blistered ground With enough lead paint we can burn this town down Red fangs wear the broken crown The wolf mother knows Insects glow Paper lanterns in a row Hungry eyes Crush my husk in fertile soil I can feel it Flight feathers Stuck together on my weakened limbs I can feel it I can feel it melt my arms Two gunmetal gray Rivers branch apart I was only human from the start I can feel it I can feel it melt my heart The gunfire fades And the fever drops Shot down in the supernatural dusk Transform Back into man Pry the weapon from my cold dead hands Wind worn Luminaries dim Out of fuel And at my end Silver bullet savior This prison's lost its charm I can't escape unless you help me bend the bars Match strike and light the paper Sparkle darkened stars I died, I met my maker And she sent me back with claws I can feel it I can feel it melt my arms Two gunmetal gray Rivers branch apart I was only human from the I can feel it I can feel it melt my heart The gunfire fades And the fever drops Shot down in the supernatural dusk
