Track Name: Murder in the Sky Over Burnaby
Murder in the sky over Burnaby.
Murder in the sky over Burnaby.
Murder in the sky over Burnaby.
Track Name: Cadillacs
Sunset on a desert highway,
Revolvers out, cocked and loaded.
Cadillacs on a desert highway,
Revolvers in the air.

As far as the eye can see,
Demons in the air.
As far as the eye can see,
Demons in the air.
Battle on a desert highway,
Body parts on the sand.
Explosions on a desert highway,
Blood pools on the sand.

As far as the eye can see,
Nothing left but us,
Anchoress on a desert highway,
Come on, son, bring that shit in.

Sunset on a desert highway,
Guitars in the air.
Cadillacs on a desert highway,
Ma, look at me now!
Track Name: Coral Bones
With last words in my teeth,
Tears in my eyes,
I leave home, not looking back.

The ocean waves call out to me,
They whisper of places that I long to see,
Out there where I long to be,
With you, forever upon the sea.
Among the cold and wailing ghosts and rain,
Intangible spirits that call my name.
The weight of the waves breaks upon my frame,
Like a desperate kiss that leaves me changed.

With the world in my teeth
Vengeance in my eyes,
I set sail. It's my time.

With a knife in my teeth,
Spyglass up to my eyes,
I return, to your world.

Black lights in the city maze,
A dark fire sets the streets ablaze,
I'll stalk you through haunted alleyways,
Come now, meet your end of days.

With a knife in my teeth,
And your heart in my hands,
I sink back, into the sea.
Track Name: She-Devil
You're the girl who demands attention.
You're the girl who's always right.
You'll never forget to mention:
"Don't you want to ask what I did last night?"
Just smile, blush, and dream of a ring,
That you're never, ever going to receive.
Tell your tales of self-flattery,
That we're never, ever going to believe.

I don't care where you've been or what you've done.
I don't care if you've gone and "bagged another one"
I don't care, I don't care.

You can justify all you want
But I've already stopped listening.

You can only fuck so many strangers.
Dirty moves in dirty bathrooms.
You can only fuck so many strangers.
Have a good night, and come again soon.

I don't care where you've been or who you've done.
I don't care if you've gone and "bagged another one".
I don't care, I don't care.

Just rage, and wail,
As time crawls down your face with your tears.
Track Name: Zombies on a Plane
You want zombies?
I got zombies,
Zombies on a plane.
You want zombies?
In the cockpit,
Eating pilot brains.

Datura in the vents,
Virus in the hold.
Spreading through the passengers,
Deadly disease mold.

The infected rising up,
They never can eat enough.

In-flight movie:
Dead Man Walking.
They don't even know.
Zombies will eat Sean Penn too,
They'll chew on his bones.

Snakes can't kill a murder witness,
Saved by Mace Windu.
Little serpents aren't enough.
See what zombies do.

You want zombies?
I got zombies,
Zombies on a plane.
You want zombies?
In the cockpit,
Eating pilot brains.

Datura in the vents,
Virus in the hold.
Spreading through the passengers,
Deadly disease mold.

The infected rising up,
They never can eat enough.

Murder feasting blood red haze,
Filling up first class.
Die, die Jedi guardian.
Throat ripped out, zombie gnash.

Zombie gnash.

You want zombies?
I got zombies,
Zombies on a plane.
You want zombies?
In the cockpit,
Eating pilot brains.
Track Name: Curses
I will not go quickly.
Scream these words out with me;
Lions, bear your teeth.
We will set the devil free.

Grind down the mountains.
Tear apart the sky.
Spraying fire like a fountain.
Everyone alive will die.

I am not afraid to die.
This is just for you and I.
Cry havoc to the sky.
I will never say goodbye.

Lions, bear your teeth.
We will set the devil free.

Curses.
Track Name: Apocalunatics
"The End of the World" written in lights in the sky,
Love undying in the empty eyes,
That have no need to question why.
Reprieve received,
Releasing relief.
A door ajar but left to rot,
Cupboard and key both left to rust,
The light only falls on the cross tipped rosary.

Overwhelmed by
Cowardice and fear,
I can't hide my
Contemptuous sneer.

Some take their faith too far.
They'd do just as well to wish upon the stars.
Some take their faith too far.
A woman said on the news today,
That our world is going to end in the month of May:

The Second Coming,
O Rapture, humming.
Oh, sweet baby Jesus, please,
Grant us all a sweet release:
A Second Coming,
O Rapture, humming.
The deadline approaches, better speak your Psalms,
Tell me, is that blood or sweat on your palms?

Six months go by,
Return and Rapture.
The End of Time,
Comes this October.

"The End of the World" written in lights in the sky,
Love undying in the empty eyes,
That have no need to question why.
Reprieve received,
Releasing relief.
A door ajar but left to rot,
Cupboard and key both left to rust,
The light only falls on the cross tipped rosary.

Six months go by,
Return and Rapture.
The End of Time,
Comes this October.
Track Name: All Sweaty Dudes Stay True
All sweaty dudes, stay true.

My friends, you best hope this never happens to you.
This song's about a man who took his own life,
And the woman he left behind.
I can see the ghosts in her eyes
Laugh when her smile breaks.

You took the cowards way out.
You ruined her life.

Couldn't stand the shame.
Couldn't face the pain
In your wife's eyes.

Dear sir,
You took the cowards way out.
You ruined her life.

With all the tests
And uncertainty,
Due to your cowardice
And infidelity.

Dear sir,
You took the cowards way out.
Track Name: Foul Bay
"It's an old turn of phrase," she says,
Lifted from the golden days.
"Something about green grass," I hear,
Greener pastures in past years.

"Oh, dear, you know how it goes..."
When memory and reality come to blows,
"It's getting so hard to just remember,"
Whispered with a sigh and a tremble,
"The way his smile lit up his face."
Now just a frame around empty space.

"I never thought he'd leave me alone."
Walking alone in an empty home.
"When I'm gone, dear, you must be brave."
They'll be together again, as dust in the waves.

"I knew I'd never last without him,"
She says, dreaming of her last ocean swim.

"When I'm gone, dear, you must be brave."
They'll be together again, as dust in the waves.
Track Name: Brooks Was Here
Whether young or golden with age,
Some birds aren't meant to be caged.

He lost his way, lost to pressure and time,
Eight bullets and a cheating wife.
Got locked inside, blamed for the crime.
The walls whisper, "You're mine for life."

These walls, they'll eat you alive.
Like a flower, of the sun deprived.
These walls, they'll eat you alive.

Whether born free men or bound by shackle and chain,
There's places in the world that aren't made of stone.
Whether in death, dreams, or redemption
We're all just looking for somewhere to call home.

There's places in the world that aren't made of stone,
We're all just looking for somewhere to call home.

Do your time, leave your mark.
Scratch your name into the bark.
You're not alone, friend, have no fear.
Never forget that Brooks was here.

Hope is a good thing,
And good things never die.

Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'.
That's goddamn right.

There's places in the world that aren't made of stone,
We're all just looking for somewhere to call home.

Do your time, leave your mark.
Scratch your name right into that bark.
You're not ever alone, love, have no fear.
Never forget: Brooks was here.
Track Name: Grease Fire
I like the way that you move,
The way your body it grooves.
Summer nights, they happen so fast.
I like the feel of your heat,
The way your sweat is so sweet.
Summer lovin’, had me a blast.

Ooh, darlin’, don’t you know you caught my eye.
You’re movin’ in ways that I can’t deny,
Baby girl, don’t you know that you look so fly.
Now sugar, it may come as a surprise
Every word I’ve ever said to women was a lie.

But you’re not like all the other girls,
Honey, you walked in and changed my world.

From across the desert, girl, I came for you.
To make you mine, to make you swoon.
And write my love on the face of the moon.
It’s all for you.  
It’s all for you.

I like the way that you move,
The way your body it grooves.
Summer nights, they happen so fast.
I like the feel of your heat,
The way your sweat is so sweet.
Summer lovin’, had me a blast.
