Track Name: Satisfy Me
Something bleeding in the water
It's what made you Saul the ruthless
It's what makes me Pete the thin
I don't know where to begin, I'll pick a fight with anything

Black dog will follow master
To dawn on him when near disaster
Beckons one to throw the stone
Beckons one to feel alone, beckons earth a tired groan

Gratify me, satisfy me, terrify me, satisfy me, don't deny me, satisfy me yeah yeah

Something bothers me from cleaning
The dirt from in these fingernails
The bloodstains from these hands
The hatred from this man, I throw a fist you lend a hand

Gratify me, satisfy me, terrify me, satisfy me, don't deny me, satisfy me yeah yeah

As it comes, take it in
You don't have to be afraid
You don't have to walk away
For your manic there is tame
For your anger there is rain
When it drips it pours
When it breathes it roars

Gratify me, satisfy me, terrify me, satisfy me, don't deny me, satisfy me yeah yeah
Track Name: I Feel The Stones Cry Out
Oh man I'm exhausted
Oh man I am
Wearing myself out in the service
Of a lesser command
And I'm in the process of becoming a man
However that may be defined
I hold my temper in a mason can
And I lose hold of it sometimes
I watch it drop onto the earth in a hot sweat
The order fleeing from my life
But I am thankful for the passion of the moment
That kind of thing is hard to find

I feel the stones cry out
Spit teeth from my weary mouth

Oh man I'm complacent
Oh man I am
Wearing myself out on every corner
And I'm folding every hand
I'm in the process of becoming a man
However that may be defined
I hold my temper in a mason can
And I lose hold of it sometimes

I feel the stones cry out
Spit teeth from my weary mouth
Track Name: Worry Like Rolling Thunder
I'm not a gifted teacher no
I've never been that patient
I won't stick around to see her grow
I've never been that patient
My grandad was a pilot
I've never been that patient
He crossed water and he crossed sand
I've never been that patient

Oh, drag me under
Worry like rolling thunder

When I can't sleep my emotions off
I just resort to yelling
When I'm exhausted and my will gets soft
I just resort to yelling
Love lying dormant is a land so bleak
Worry like rolling thunder
I'm not going to beg you because I'm not that weak
Worry like rolling thunder

Oh, drag me under
Worry like rolling thunder
Track Name: New Brunswick
I know I'm beat
The ground under me has become soft
Amaranthine mist has you so lost
You don't even know what you want
You don't even know what you need

I want to run quick
I want to run to New Brunswick
But in the end I am alone
I am alone, I am alone

When you find me
Stay if only for a short time
Company's nice at least I find
Even if I still feel alone
All your friends can't make you not feel alone

I want to run quick
I want to run to New Brunswick
But in the end I am alone
I am alone, I am alone

Your in a typhoon
You lie to yourself but it's no use
Say that your home but it's not true
Lay in the bed that you've made
And remember the debts that you pay

I want to run quick
I want to run to New Brunswick
But in the end I am alone
I am alone, I am alone
Track Name: Bad Habit
Some folks write cheques
But i don't have that to offer you
Some folks are complex
But I'm not, I'm as I seem to be

Something fresh for when I breathe stale air
And a thorough freeze that I can live to conquer
Let me live again
Let me live again

Time breeds in mysterious ways
Habit forms an ethereal gaze
Everyone wants a spot at the table
So we whisper in dark corners

No harm is done
No harm in conversation
No harm is done
But I came to hear the crack of bones

Something fresh for when I breathe stale air
And a thorough freeze that I can live to conquer
Let me live again
Let me live again

Time breeds in mysterious ways
Habit forms an ethereal gaze
Everyone wants a spot at the table
So we whisper in dark corners

Everything tastes like milk and honey
Or prejudice and plum brandy
I suppose it's not a ceremony
Without whispers in dark corners
