Track Name: The Nights of Wine and Roses
long lit up tonight and still drinking, don't we have anything to live for?
well of course we do, but 'til they come true, we're drinking

and we're still smoking, don't we have anything to live for?
well of course we do, but 'til they come true, we're smoking

we all want to know what nobody knows
what the nights of wine and roses hold
for the wine and roses of our souls

so we down our drinks in a funnel of friends
and we burn our blends right down to the ends
we don't cry for those nights to arrive
we yell like hell to the heavens

we all want to know what nobody knows
what the nights of wine and roses hold
for the wine and roses of our souls

so we down our drinks in a funnel of friends
and we burn our blends right down to the ends
we don't cry for those nights to arrive
we yell like hell to the heavens
Track Name: Fire's Highway
a northern soul in southern lands
will always find his way to southern hands
she'll kiss away your gypsy fears
and turn some restless nights to restless years

hearts from hell collide
on fire's highway tonight
we dreamed it, now we know

a soul of fire and eyes of flame
tend to overwhelm her tender frame
and when raw winds blew us down her city's streets
she warmed my body with her spirit's heat

some empty bottles, the cold sweat blues
howling like outlaws from her rented room
no rising sun confession, dear
only a restless night i'll nurse for years

hearts from hell collide
on fire's highway tonight
we dreamed it, now we know

one night to have and to hold
to let live, but never let go

a northern soul in southern lands
will always find his way to southern hands
she'll kiss away your gypsy fears
and turn some restless nights to restless years

hearts from hell collide
on fire's highway tonight
we dreamed it, now we know
Track Name: Evil's Sway
the sun lays low on a solemn city
all i see is sexual red
the last rays burst through between the train cars
and shine directly on my head

so come and find me in this moment
and expose a passionate man for what he is
we'll cut loose our gold
'cause we need fire
and only kindling can it buy
wildness is our treasure
so boldly surrender
to me and to the night

on the lash
and lashing out
it's evil's sway tonight

a candle's pulse is no companion
when all you see is sexual red
you burn away your dreams inside a journal
and leave those primal words unsaid

i'll run to find you in this moment
and expose a passionate women for what she is
we'll cut loose our gold
'cause we need fire
and only kindling can it buy
wildness is our treasure
so boldly surrender
to me and to the night

on the lash
and lashing out
it's evil's sway tonight
Track Name: For the Love of Ivy
you look just like an elvis from hell
my heart is broken, and i'm going to hell
bury me way down deep in hell
i'm a steel driving man, i want to go to hell

then go tell ivy
for the love of ivy
i did it for ivy
you're the one

gonna buy me a graveyard of my own
and kill everyone who ever done me wrong
gonna buy me a gun just as long as my arm
and kill everyone who ever done me harm

then go tell ivy
yeah go tell ivy
for the love of ivy
you're the one

jawbone eat and jawbone talk
jawbone eat you with a knife and fork
i was hunting for answers down in the dark
when suddenly i had a better thought

let's go hunt ivy
let's go get ivy
for the love of ivy
you're the one

i was all dressed up like elvis from hell
Track Name: Adrenaline Nightshift
hitchhiked to hell and back, riding the wind
waiting for a generation's bonfire to begin
when the plunder of the poets, thunder of a punk's guitar
beat life to my body sulking drunk at the back of a bar

whoring my heart, on the wings of a western night
busting my guts, on a riot dose of paradise
when a red-blooded daughter, slowed my gunfire run to rest
with her blitzkrieg love and a roman candle kiss

there is no high like this
adrenaline nightshift

hurricane home to crusade alone, wounded and thin
still waiting for a generation's bonfire to begin
when i muscle up some money, i'll rattle the sabre of the streets
cause death has no respect for love, and youth no respect for me

there is no high like this
adrenaline nightshift
Track Name: Younger Us
remember when we had them all on the run
and the night that we saw the midnight sun

remember saying things like we'll sleep when we're dead
and thinking this feeling was never going to end

remember when we had them all on the run
and the night that we saw the midnight sun

remember saying things like we'll sleep when we're dead
and thinking this feeling was never going to end

remember that night you were already in bed
said fuck it, and got up to drink with me instead

give me that naked new skin rush (give me younger us)
give me that you and me to the grave trust (give me younger us)
give me my girls learning love, wild and free (give me younger us)
give me my boys and i swimming through the streets (give me younger us)

give me that night you were already in bed
said fuck it, and got up to drink with me instead

give me that naked new skin rush (give me younger us)
give me that you and me to the grave trust (give me younger us)
give me my girls learning love, wild and free give me younger us)
give me my boys and i swimming through the streets (give me younger us)

give me that night you were already in bed
said fuck it, and got up to drink with me instead
Track Name: The House That Heaven Built
when the soul of the city was laid to rest
and the night forgotten and left for dead
i happened on a house built of living light
where everything evil disappears and dies

when they love you (and they will)
tell them all, they'll love in my shadow
and if they try to slow you down
tell them all, to go to hell

i settled in slowly to this house that you call home
to blood and breath, fair flesh and bone
blush of our bodies in the heat of the night
all day, the day after, reddened the skies

when they love you (and they will)
tell them all, they'll love in my shadow
and if they try to slow you down
tell them all, to go to hell

it's a lifeless life with no fixed address to give
but you're not mine to die for anymore, so i must live
born of a bottle from heaven's hand
and now you know, and here i am

when they love you (and they will)
tell them all, they'll love in my shadow
and if they try to slow you down
tell them all, to go to hell

when they love me (and they will)
i'll tell them all, they'll love in your shadow
and if they try to slow me down
i'll tell them all, to go to hell
Track Name: Continuous Thunder
heart's terrain is never a prairie
but you weren't wary
you took my hand
through the cold, pissing rain
dressed to the nines
arm in arm with me tonight

singing out loud
(like continuous thunder)

heart's terrain is never a prairie
but you weren't wary
you took my hand
through the cold, pissing rain
dressed to the nines
arm in arm with me tonight

singing out loud
(like continuous thunder)

if i had all of the answers
and you had the body you wanted
would we love with a legendary fire?

if i had all of the answers
and you had the body you wanted
would we love with a legendary fire?

and if the cold, pissing rain flooded that fire
would you still take my hand tonight?

singing out loud
(like continuous thunder)
