Track Name: Fire on Brunswick
I want to be the chalk outline
In the middle of your neighbor's lawn
I want to thrash and flail indiscreetly
With no consequence

Tonight we're gonna turn it up
Rip cuts we loved at twenty one
Three fingers of somethin' cheap and rough
We can curse the sun when she wakes us

Oh yeah
Douse the rag ignite the spark in your voice
In the end
It's not the fire but what’s made from the noise
Call the college girls on the corner
Buy another round for the boys
It's not the fire

Now we're turned up
It's hard on the heart yet soft to the touch
yeah nights like these
are never enough

Oh yeah
Douse the rag ignite the spark in your voice
In the end
It's not the fire but what’s made from the noise
Call the college girls on the corner
Buy another round for the boys
It's not the fire
Track Name: Empty Coffin
Skipped town, one suitcase
Packed up his mistakes
Left a letter on the bed as she slept late (so peacefully)

Headed south to rearrange
Saw god in a drifters face
Said "Son repent your sins to me it's not too late to change and be saved"

Empty coffin, no faith
Countless promises he made but couldn't keep
She said, "you'll be back one day, you'll see."

Spent months in New Orleans
Cheap love, drugged reverie
"This needle is just fine. This needle does me right."

Send in the cavalry, the beauty that burns with tragedy
Make love to the pavement
Make love to the pavement
In drunken speak

Empty coffin, no faith
Countless promises he made but couldn't keep
She said, "you'll be back one day, you'll see."
Track Name: That Kennedy Kid
She's ready for a Kennedy
Up for taking anything
Enough beer to last the weekend
And a pocket full of remedies

Natalie's known to walk on water
Mostly public pools in winter
Chasing poppers with December
She's out to make believers of them all

Sixteen and a virgin
You never made him earn it
When your priest asked of your innocence
You told him you burnt it

When they met it was in a parking lot
He was jacking cars and looking pretty tough
She thought it was love
He just wanted to fuck

She had herself a Kennedy
First time and high on some amphetamines
She said, "The clinic's not an option,
I'll have it when I'm seventeen."

Sixteen and a virgin
Never made him earn it
You said "Father can you help me?"
"No, you fucking deserve it."

Now you're alone
Track Name: I've Got A Fistful
I've got a fistful
Of Queen Anne's lace
And it's wilting away

The thin stems
Are bent out of shape
And starting to gray

I'll keep tending a love overgrown with weeds
As if there's something left to reap
And if you're waiting on a sign from me
Baby, don't forget to breathe

I've got a mind full
Of broken scenes
No plot, no speech

The camera is rolling
The film overheats
And the colors they bleed

Keep on acting like love is all you need
As if there's something left to reap
And if you're waiting on a sign from me
Baby, don't forget to breathe

There are voids that we learn to live with

And if you're waiting on a sign from me
Baby, don't forget to breathe
Track Name: Bernard
Where were your kids
Too busy with life
To call or to write?

They left you to die
In that hospital bed
No one by your side

What got you through those years?
Was it your faith left in God?
Was the loneliness just too much to take
Which finally broke your heart?

Can you hear me?
I am sorry
I said I'd visit but I couldn't find the time

Now you're gone
Please forgive me
This is my final goodbye

What got you through those years?
Was it your faith left in God?
Was the loneliness just too much to take
Which finally broke your heart?

Was the loneliness just too much to take
Which finally broke your heart?
Was the loneliness just too much to take?
Track Name: North of Panama
There is love in her eyes
As she stares down the barrel of his gun
"We're not making it to Panama, baby.
There's no way outta this one."

This isn't a Hollywood ending
"Now close your eyes my beautiful darling."

Two dead in the sunshine state
Hearts filled with reckless intentions
A bloody suburb in the sunshine state
Two bullets, no sign of the ocean

She swore they'd be happy
Livin' life on the run
Sail down the coast to Panama
A new life in the same sun

We are nothing more than animals
(As one dies so does the other)
Exploding into white wilderness
(As one dies so does the other)

Two dead in the sunshine state
With plans on starting it over
A bloody suburb in the sunshine state
Two bullets for delusional lovers

We are nothing more than animals
"Close your eyes, can you feel the wind on your face?"
Track Name: Goddamnit St. Catherine
2 A.M. and the block is silent
Just the hum of haloed lights
Curse your name to the skyline
St. Catherine, you're mine tonight

Goddamn I need a hammer
Cuz that dress of brick you wear so well
Tunnel in, confess my sins
Of being a drunk disaster

No I won't remember
The song that played in me
The dawn is always darkest
After it sees the youth that stayed

Smoke the early till the moon quits
Blistered vision twenty cigarettes
Repeating lines off the track list
They're all so tired and boring

Cuz pouring drinks it never suited me
Violent visions making livers bleed
Now I can't escape
No I can't escape

No I won't remember
The song that played in me
The dawn is always darkest
After it sees the youth that stayed
