Track Name: Skinwalker
You can see me walkin’
I got the head of a wolf
You can hear me howlin’
While I call your bluff
Skinwalker

You can see me runnin’
said I’m head of a pack
Once I steal your soul
You never get it back
Skinwalker

Once you see me comin’
There’s nothing you can do
You better get away while
I’m howlin’ at the moon
Skinwalker
Track Name: Sudden Death in the Flesh
I said I never did believe in fate
or what they call ‘destiny’
You keep going till you go no more
That’s where you’re supposed to be
80 years ain’t a lot of time
do what you gotta do
What’s the point of living your whole life
if nobody remembers you?

It’s Sudden Death in the Flesh

You can spend an awful lot of your time
Find the meaning life
But what’s the difference if it all could end
at the edge of a knife?

It’s Sudden Death in the Flesh

You can spend an awful lot of time
find the meaning of life
What’s the difference if it all could end
at the edge of a knife?

It’s Sudden Death in the Flesh
Track Name: Lawman
Hey now mama, listen what I say
That old lawman he’s coming my way
He been on me since the day I was born
hunting me down till I go in the ground

I’m your son mother, and I’m a good man
I can’t do this alone here now, won’t you please hold me hand?
Darkness close around me... I can’t see the light
To me now the noon-day sun it’s as dark as the night

And in the distance I see
That lawman’s come for me

I’m always surrounded but feel out of place
It’s like I’m segregated, I’m another race
I’m feelin so tired because I never win
I never knew that being lonely is such a sin

And the tears sting my eyes
As I stare at the sky
How could I’ve ever known
He’d attack when I’s alone?

Death knocked on my door but I could not reply
I’m not bearing to live, but I’m not ready to die
It’s already over, the damage was done
I’m at the end of your smoking gun

Getting harder to breath
‘cause I’m gnashing my teeth
Hearin’ voices in my head
And they want me dead
Track Name: That's the Working Man
I’m workin double time, ain’t got no money to lose
and if you’re handing it out I said I couldn’t refuse
this is America, we sing “the land of the free”
but maybe that’s just what the corporation wants you to think

I’m feelin... That’s the Working Man

I can’t pay my bills, I can’t pay for my pills
I said ol’ Uncle Sam he’s got deep pockets to fill
If we all play nice and do just as he says
maybe we can have a scrap to eat before we’re dead

I’m feelin... That’s the Working Man

I can’t pay for food, I’m working all damn day
I guess I don’t have time to eat it now anyways
I’m makin’ minimum wage, workin’ two crappy jobs
and at the end of every week I end up gettin robbed

I’m feelin... That’s the Working Man
Track Name: I'm a Bad Man
See me walkin’ round your back door
I’m why your old lady won’t look at you no more
I’m a Bad Man

People talkin’ said I’m a fool
You keep talkin’ I said I‘m gonna mess with you
I’m a Bad Man

Woke up this morning, I was mad as hell
If that don’t scare ya I said my ol’ shotgun will
I’m a Bad Man
Track Name: Gravedigger Dan
Bloody shovel and muddy boots
Three gueses what he’s gonna do
He’s Gravedigger Dan

When darkness falls and moon is out
hear the ladies scream and shout
You’ll find ‘em in the boneyard tomorrow
They’ll be with all the rest

Gonna be out late tonight,
don’t bother putting up no fight
He’s Gravedigger Dan

Take ‘em out to the potter’s field
‘cause he’s got another life to steal
There ain’t another soul around,
so don’t waste your breath

Grinding your bones to hustle your beast
Pitchfork mobs ‘semblin the masses
Track Name: Nothing Left to Lose
I ain’t got no money, I can’t sleep at night
Been lyin’ to my baby, tell her, “It’ll be alright”
But I don’t know
Lord, what can I do?
I guess I’ll keep on goin’ since
I got Nothing Left to Lose

I’m up four in the morning workin’ all day long
Bring nothing home ‘cept a bunch of these sad old songs
An’ I don’t know
Lord, what can I do?
I guess I’ll keep on playing this here guitar
I got Nothing Left to Lose

I lost my job so now I walk the streets alone
I’m out all night ‘cause I’m too scared to go back home
I don’t know
Lord, what can I do?
I guess I’ll keep on going since
I got Nothing Left to Lose
Track Name: Soldier Song
I see their faces in my dreams
In my head I hear them screamin’
They stare at me with their unblinkin’ eyes
for every son, a mother cries

I’m wading in blood, I’m knee deep
So burn me alive while I’m fast asleep

I never thought I’d feel so alone
Like I did when I came home
They all ask me how it was
But they don’t know just what it does

I’m wading in blood, I’m waist deep
So burn me alive while I’m fast asleep

I wait for death to take me away
to peace of mind and end of days
I’m shaking, crying here on the floor
I don’t want to live my life no more

I’m drowning in blood, I’m neck deep
So burn me alive while I’m fast asleep
Track Name: Left for Dead
I’m stuck on the edge, I’m one of the dregs, I have no home
I’m sick in the head, I’m feelin’ dead and I’m not alone
I opened the door, threw up on the floor, now I’m feeling good
I’m gettin’ sore, come back for more like youknew I would

Now I’ll run a million miles an hour
Otherwise I’ll be Left for Dead

I’m on top of the world with all the pretty girls, it won’t last for long
I’ll be thrown in a cell, it’s a living hell, I done nothing wrong.
I’m stuck on the edge, I’m one of the dregs, I have no home
I’m sick in the head, I’m feelin’ dead and I’m not alone

Now I’ll run a million miles an hour
Otherwise I’ll be Left for Dead

Now I’ll run a million miles an hour
Otherwise I’ll be Left for Dead
Track Name: New Meat
I got an arrow in my knee
All day long I been drinkin’ antifreeze
I got a bunch of pictures on my face
at least that’s what all the old folks keep sayin’

Please Calm Me Down

Don’t you go pointin’ no fingers
I said you got a flamin’ head
Don't you dare try to cross my street
‘Cause my laser-quest dumptruck beats

Please Calm Me Down
Please Calm Me Down
Track Name: Strawberry Jam
Hey baby, let me take you home
I’m sick n’ tired of sleepin’ all alone
C’mon over, we can fool around
start in bed n’ end up on the ground

I said I want your love
It’s all I’m thinking of
And now I’m feeling right
I’ll sleep with you tonight

Baby said you wanted more
draw you blinds ... lock your door
Try to call me on my telephone
Sorry baby, but I’m not at home

I said I want your love
It’s all I’m thinking of
And now I’m feeling right
I’ll sleep with you tonight
