Track Name: Boogeyman
And here comes the Boogeyman,
the Boogeyman comes for me.
Here comes the Boogyeman,
he's gonna take me in my sleep.
No use to lock out the Boogeyman,
or chain him to a tree.
There's no hiding in the basement
'cause the Boogeyman needs no key.

Scratching on the window
soon soon soon
I'm gonna give you all my love
Boogeyman school.
Scratching on the window
soon soon soon
howwwwwl
Boogeyman school.

Here comes the Boogeyman,
the Boogeyman's in my bed.
Here comes the Boogeyman,
I think I want to give him ****
Son, have you heard 'em say
they're gonna chase him out of town
they've got a shovel in their left hand
And in their right they've got a gun

Scratching on the window
soon soon soon
I'm gonna give you all my love
Boogeyman school.
Scratching on the window
soon soon soon
howwwwwl
Boogeyman school.

El chupacabra
El chupacabra
El chupacabra
no va comer nos
El chupacabra
El chupacabra
El chupacabra
no va comer nos

Scratching on the window
soon soon soon
I'm gonna give you all my love
Boogeyman school.
Scratching on the window
soon soon soon
howwwwwl
Boogeyman school.
Track Name: Johnny Boy
Johnny Boy, everyone
thinks that you're the Devil's son.
I saw you in my dreams
saw that you'd be good to me.
Let my hair come undone
now I know that you're the one.
You can have me for free
my love for you has no fee.

Can you hear them beg me,
hear them beg me.

Oh Johnny Boy...

Johnny Boy, sad and blue,
everyone is a bird to you but
don't you mind what they sing
don't be upset when they all take wing.
Far too high, they can't see
what a big bad world lies underneath.
I'm with you below the trees
my love gentle as the breeze.

Can you hear them beg me,
hear them beg me.

Oh Johnny Boy...

Johnny Boy, everyone
thinks that you're the Devil's son
Johnny Boy, everyone
thinks that you're the Devil

Oh Johnny Boy...
Track Name: Ballad of the Ghost
Some people like to pray,
I like to kiss.
Some people like their comfort,
I like to touch.
And I know I don't need no god at all,
I don't need no light to guide me through the dark
as I walk alone.
Don't get me wrong...

'Cause I know I am
a mortal man
and this makes no sense
looking through a lens
I know I am
just a mortal man

Some people like to think
there's someone up there
Some people like to hope
there's something waiting
But I know there will be no place at all
'cause there is no soul
that's running through these bones
as I sing my song
and I walk alone

'Cause I know I am
a mortal man
and this makes no sense
looking through a lens
I know I am
just a mortal man

I'm a mortal man...
Track Name: Wolf is Howling
Inspect every inch that's left
wires in my head
to please you
to please you.
Knock on your wooden door
And now my master's gone
I'll need you
I'll need you

Wolf is howling
wolf is howling
wolf is howling
wolf is howling in the night

I'll follow his cry
I'll follow, before he dies

Pretend to be somebody else
someone less upset
to please you
to please you

Knock on your wooden door
And now my master's gone
I'll need you
I'll need you

Wolf is howling
wolf is howling
wolf is howling
wolf is howling in the night

I'll follow his cry
I'll follow, before he dies

Don't say a word or the Devil will know
that I've found you
I'm cold and I'm tired all I want
is to crawl right beside you.

Wolf is howling....
Track Name: Been a bad woman
Doctor doctor, give me a cure
Fix my head, it's feeling so sore.
I've been a bad woman, been a bad woman,
made such a bad bad choice.
I spoke the truth and nothing but the truth
yet I wish I never had a voice.

Take this toy from me
(take this toy from me)
Before it cuts me deep
(before it cuts me deep)

Uh oh, I've been a bad woman
Oh made a bad bad choice yes

I've been a bad woman been a bad woman
(cut down to the bones, dig deep dig a hole)
I've been a bad woman been a bad woman
Sinner, sinner, sinner, sinner, I'm a sinner
(sinner)

Doctor doctor, can you feel my heart crush
good wolf, bad wolf, who am I to judge you?
Take me home and I'll be good to you.

Won't you take this toy from me
(take this toy from me)
Before it cuts me deep
(before it cuts me deep)

Uh oh, I've been a bad woman
Oh made a bad bad choice yes

I've been a bad woman been a bad woman
(cut down to the bones, dig deep dig a hole)
I've been a bad woman been a bad woman
Sinner, sinner, sinner, sinner, I'm a sinner
(sinner)

Doctor do you wanna know
what it feels like to be drowning?

I've been a bad woman been a bad woman
(cut down to the bones, dig deep dig a hole)
I've been a bad woman been a bad woman
Sinner, sinner, sinner, sinner, I'm a sinner
(sinner)
Track Name: Son of the dust
oh good lord
where have you gone?
why have you left me?
I've been such a good
christian son
said all my prayers
joined your house and children
every Sunday
but still
I'm feeling so ill
but sill
I wonder if you give a

oh good lord
where have you gone?
why have you left me?

I know you can see
all my deepest secret
and I know that
surely you know
my devotion
I've been such a good
christian son
said all my prayers
joined your house and children
every Sunday
but still
I'm feeling so ill
but sill
I wonder if you give a

oh good lord
where have you gone?
why have you left me?

How can I pray 'till the end?
I will obey 'till the end but
my hands are full of sand
full of sand...

oh good lord,
where have you gone?
why have you left me?
Track Name: Hoboland
Nicotine days
and nicotine nights.
It might be a phase I'll just
wait and sit tight.
'Till one day I'll backfire like a gun
broken red blood drying in the sun.

You'd better run now.

The crows of disgrace
will pick on my eyes
Don't look at my face
'cause there's not much left
to recognize.
Oh daddy

Run
(run)
Run
(run)
Run
them bunnies smell like murder
Run
(run)

Nicotine days
and nicotine nights
it might be a phase it might
just be my life
I'm looking for my Hobo my Hoboland
my Hobo my Hoboland
The crows of disgrace
will pick on my eyes

Run
(run)
Run
(run)
Run
them bunnies smell like murder
Run
(run)

Someone stole my love
like the eye of the scarecrow
taken by the bird
Is it in a hole?
In a hole underground and
sleeping with them bunnies?
Someone stole my love
Someone stole my love

Run
(run)
Run
get away get away get away now
Run
them bunnies smell like murder
Run

They'll choke on the wine we pour.
Track Name: If it doesn't hurt
If it doesn't hurt
it means it's not working
And if it doesn't burst
it means it's not burning enough.

Thank you for
the morning coffee.
Thank you for
not breaking down.
Drowning as we float
despite the weight of time.

If it doesn't hurt
it means it's not worth it.
Send the kids to bed
and send them all my loving

Thank you for
the coffee dear
Thank you for
not breaking down.
Drowning as we float
despite the weight of time.
Track Name: Connect the dots
This garden's growing fast and every day
the shades you thought would match turn into grey.
You think that you can find a way to keep us safe

but you don't really know what you're talking about,
do you?

Nobody really cares whether you're right or wrong
or whether you were graced with being very long
You think that you can find a way to play it strong

but you don't really know what you're talking about,
do you?


I am not impressed
I know deep down in your chest
you keep your fears tied up in knots
I am not impressed
I'll tell you man one day they'll kill you if you
don't
connect
the dots.

Nobody really cares whether you're right or wrong
or whether you were graced with being very long
You think that you can find a way to play it strong

but you don't really know what you're talking about,
do you?
Track Name: I like you 'cause you're free
The smell of burnt
travels on the tracks
where hope might be lying
underneath buildings that collapse
And I fight against the fear
that grips me by my throat
I fight to be me to leave this death unheard
but in the end

I like you 'cause you're free
I like you 'cause you're not like me

You tell me you don't care
what other people have to say
and you're great enough to stare
with a smile upon your face
But me, I'm always taken
by the thought of all those shoes,
stepping on the station floor
the world to lose.

We're looking for a place
where the curtains could be drawn
where the best of all our days
could be condensed into just one
and I know that if I leave
I'll only end up by your door
Like a dog that bites its tail
I will love you till I'm gone

I like you 'cause you're free
I like you 'cause you don't like me.

The smell of burnt
travels on the tracks
where hope might be lying
underneath buildings that collapse
And I fight against the fear
that grips me by my throat
I fight to be me to leave this death unheard

All we are is what we choose to hide from each other
tell me how you really feel or don't even bother talking
