Slender blades of grass more so now than in the past It's a phase I'm going through Just a place I go with you   Rain we're not prepared and drench this bed we once shared It's a phase I'm going through Just a place I go with you It's true, It's always for you   Silence screaming trees that only some of us could hear It's a phase I'm going through Just a place I go with you And how could I not see all that love laid out for me It's a phase I'm going through Just a place I go with you It's true, It's always for you.   A million birds are flying high above my head Familiar prayers come from the ground Above my head one million miles, above my head two million miles, above my head three million miles above my   Rain we're not prepared and drench this bed we once shared It's a phase I'm going through Just a place I go with you And how could I not see all that love laid out to me It's a phase I'm going through Just a place I go with you It's true, It's always for you. Always for you

Gold 03:05
I see it in your eyes and I smell it in your clothes I've burned it into memory with your pockets full of gold And it ain't extraordinary. It's not a hard pose. So simple to betray me with your pockets full of gold   Chorus And you never had to worry 'bout making me mad Everything you wanted lay out there to be had Everything you needed was always free You never had to answer to me   You can sense it all around you. It's nearly time to close You send greeting cards and kisses. It's just sabotage in prose Now I won't stop to wonder. What it all meant 'Cause I smelled it in your clothes and betrayal has a scent   Chorus
4.
Well I've got a book of numbers That I've been reading I'm run-down and broken-hearted And barely breathing You counted out a second savior I count down to losing Bus fare for trips to nowhere But mainly I'm standing still again   You give me away Give me away You give me   You might have to take it early And take it often So man-up and keep inhaling Stop your coughing I feel as if I've seen my own ghost You look like forgetting So tell another Jesus Jones joke And I'll work on forgiving you again   You give me away Give me away It gives me away Give me   You're so damned easy

Crumble Away 03:39
Ain't got nothing to hide Ain't got nothing but pride There ain't no guarantees and ain't no sanctity now X2 - I'm sorry to say   Gave my license away Three weeks off without pay Ain't got nothing left 'Cept these cigarettes now  X2 - I'm sorry to say   Should I crumble. should I crumble away?   Give my heart to Jesus Give my heart to Jesus Sacred heart of Mary Won't you come and touch me And all will be forgiven now Promise me - pray for me - promise me - blasphemy   Ain't got nothing to hide Ain't got nothing but pride Ain't got nothing left 'Cept these cigarettes now   I might not make it back Offer one simple prayer Blinding lights to shine on this soul of mine now and take it away Watch it floating Watch it floating away CHORUS

You might not agree You might not agree But my hands are cold Yeah my hands are cold And it seems to me Yeah it seems to be That my James is gone Yeah my James is gone   As I count the days I try to think up ways How can I keep my family whole I gotta hold it in 'Cause once I begin... Damn Damn Damn   You might not believe You might not believe But my bed is cold Yeah my bed is cold And it seems to me Yeah it seems to be That my James is gone Yeah my James is gone   As I count the days I try to think up ways How will I keep my family whole I gotta hold it in 'Cause once I begin... Damn Damn Damn

Overdue 03:04
I'm always right  My glory's overdue And when I'm wrong I'm not as wrong as you   I'll watch the king and wait my turn to rule But all this time, the king has been the fool   The king gets scared when he's alone The queen has packed her shit and gone   'Cause I'm always right. I'm overdue tonight.   The coast is clear Interrogation rooms So come on in here And conduct your interview   'Cause I'm always right. I'm overdue tonight I'm always right, and I'm your king tonight   The king gets scared when he's alone The queen has packed her shit and gone They work their fingers to the bone The king gets scared when he's alone   I'm always right  My glory's overdue And when I'm wrong I'm not as wrong as you   The king gets scared when he's alone The queen has packed her shit and gone They work their fingers to the bone The king gets scared when he's alone

Turn this inside out and show all you would hide Fingerprints on windows washed in crimson tide It's easy to amuse but it's easier to kill Ya jockey for position and ya run up that hill man   Send little Danny away (rept)   Olive branches burning and your golden goose is cooked Ghosts of creole sunsets that float on rusted roofs Useless intellectuals with futile hearts are bound To sway the huddled masses at twice the speed of sound Send little Danny away (rept)   Turn this inside out and show all you would hide Fingerprints on windows washed in crimson tide It's easy to amuse but it's easier to kill Ya jockey for position and ya run up that hill man   Send little Danny away (rept)

Walk It Off 02:48
Walking home the other day I ran into another soul Giving ground was not allowed And mercy will not ever come   Walking home the other day A conflict disguised as reward Eyes for eye and teeth for tooth My resolution soon dissolved So walk it off   Brotherhood has drowned in fear And saints desert us one and all Make good use of your best tools And dig your new bed in the ground   Walking home the other day I ran into another soul Giving ground was not allowed And mercy will not ever come So walk it off   Brotherhood has drowned in fear And saints desert us one and all Make good use of your best tools And dig your new bed in the ground So walk it off

Jewelry Box 03:55
When all your work is done You'll go to one Who hides the sun And of all your waking dreams You'll follow one It's left un...   Small in all but grace a pirouette and your smiling face   When I was all torn down My solace came With one golden sound Your house of wood and brown The key is turned See it spinnin' spinnin'   Small in all but grace a pirouette and your smiling face   When I was all torn down My solace came With one golden sound Of all your waking dreams You'll follow one It's left un...   Small in all but grace a pirouette and your smiling face

about

The Moses Gun Chicago, Illinois

1989: enamored with metal and hardcore as well as post punk and new wave sounds-an appreciation for song craft and bands/artists who sacrifice themselves completely through their music-countless hours jamming in garages and basements-but they've never wavered in their passion ... more
