Track Name: Sam Hall
Well, my name it is Sam Hall, yeah Sam Hall
Well, my name it is Sam Hall, yeah Sam Hall
Well, my name it is Sam Hall, and I hate you one and all,
and I hate you one and all, damn your eyes.

I killed a man they said, so they said.
I killed a man they said, so they said.
I killed a man they said, and I bashed him in his head,
and I left him there for dead, damn his eyes.

Well a swinging I must go, I must go.
A swinging I must go, I must go.
A swinging I must go, all you critters down below
said Sam I told you so, well damn your eyes.

I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd.
I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd.
I saw Molly in the crowd, and I hollered out real loud,
"Hey there Molly, ain't you proud, damn your eyes!"

Well the sheriff he came too, he came too.
Yeah the sheriff he came too, he came too.
Now the sheriff he came too, he said "Sam, how are you",
I said "Sheriff, how are you, damn your eyes!"

My name is Samuel, Samuel.
My name is Samuel, Samuel.
Ah my name is Samuel, I'll see you all in hell,
I'll see you all in hell, damn your eyes.

Well my name it is Sam Hall, yeah Sam Hall
Ah my name it is Sam Hall, yeah Sam Hall
Well, my name it is Sam Hall, and I hate you one and all,
and I hate you one and all, damn your eyes.
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
Orphaned on an open sea,
one of tumulus need,
and I can't find my own way
back to the white sand beach.

Churning in the wake,
I float on in disarray.
I float on in disarray,
knowing that I'll sink.

I drown and bloat and float again,
I drown to float again.
The crashing sea surrounds me,
I drown to float again.

Oh yes woe is me
when woe is grief
and I departing woe shall be
when the maggots make their feast.

'Cause sheltered under my flesh
is a shriveling soul that's ready to go
I said sheltered under my flesh
is a shriveling soul that's ready to,

The silver smoke is rising,
but I can hope no more.
This broken human remains
a shattered kaleidoscope.

Numb the pain, numb the pain, numb the pain.
Numb the pain, numb the pain, numb the pain.
Numb the pain, numb the pain, numb the pain.
Numb the pain, numb the pain, numb the,

The crashing sea surrounds me,
but I can hope no more.
This broken human remains
a shattered kaleidoscope.

Drown and bloat and float again,
I drown to float again.
With reflections of nothing,
nothing
nothing
nothing.
Nothing.

Numb the pain, numb the pain,numb the pain.
Track Name: Coconuts (with you)
If only I had left you,
you would have made the greatest art.
Inspiration always comes
from the value of a broken heart.

But now you're dead and gone
and buried in my back yard.
And the only thing that saddens me
is how they all forgot.

About you,
how they forgotten about you.
About you,
how they all forgotten about you.

Yet your mind was always lost
thinking on tragedy.
How the world will end
and the trumpets they will sing.

So you didn't see me standing there
pulling on all your strings.
And no one ever noticed,
or ever even thought,

About you,
no they never thought about you.
About you,
no they never thought about you.

Time has come and gone
where I've had my doubts
Time has rearranged
and left me standing out.

What if I was right,
who was really wrong.
Doesn't seem to matter now
as time has run out.

For you,
oh time ran out.
For you,
oh time ran out.
For you,
oh time ran out.
For you,
oh time ran out.

Now I'm eighty five,
and thinking of the distant past.
How I laughed too hard
I can't ever remember being crass.

Yet you always had a frown,
never finding what you craved.
So you disappeared
and soon I found my grave,

With you,
oh I'll fade away
too soon,
oh I'll fade away.

With you,
I'll fade away
too soon,
oh I'll fade away.

Yeah it's true,
we'll all fade away,
too soon,
we'll all fade away.

Yeah it's true,
we'll all fade away,
too soon,
we'll all
fade away.

Yeah it's true.
Track Name: Damnation
Well I try to do what I can
for my old friends and my regrets,
but I keep coming back to my disease.

And I try to hold on
of what I can of right and wrong,
but I find I am left with my disease.

Now I have no family
and I've got no enemies,
not even a place to hang my head.

And even if I got to try,
I would suffer and I'd cry,
"What am I supposed to believe!?"

Damn the body,
damn the soul.
Damn the body,
damn the soul.

Well, if I had a night to give
another soul a chance to live,
I would throw my own so far away.

And even if I had the life,
void of misfortune and my strife,
I would certainly throw it all away.

But still it stinks of rotten filth
and all the towers that I built,
are quickly crumbling away.

When caviar and champagne dreams,
force the hatred out from me,
what am I supposed to believe.

Damn the body,
damn the soul.
Damn the body,
damn the soul.
Track Name: Whiskey
I've been drinking on whiskey,
whiskey how's it been.
I'll keep drinking you whiskey,
until I can't seem to stand.

Oh, drinking until I'm gone,
Oh, drinking all night long.

I've been taking shots of bourbon,
like it never ends,
and all this here bourbon
won't put me back together again.

Oh, won't let it get me down.
Oh, not even if we drown,
yeah we drown.

Oh, whiskey rounds again.
Oh, whiskey till the end.

I've been drinking on whiskey
seems like a curse,
and all this here whiskey
might put me away in a hearse.

Oh, whiskey hear my song.
Oh, drinking all night long.
Oh, drinking until I'm gone.
'til I'm gone.
Track Name: Poison
Why,
did you poison my heart.
Why,
did you poison my heart,
tonight.

How,
can I erase the pain.
Tell me,
how do I erase the pain,
of you.

Be still my bleeding heart,
While I drink from my cup of sorrow.
Watch me as,
I fall apart.

Now,
I can't seem to follow through.
Now,
I'm hurt and hollow too,
without you.

Crazy,
and lost it's true.
I'm crazy,
and lost without you,
tonight.

Be still my bleeding heart,
While I drink from my cup of sorrow.
Watch me as,
I'm wasting away.

Away.
Away.
Away.
