Track Name: The Mother Road
took the mother road
down to goddess flesh
i swallowed the key
i want to learn to swallow my pain
hallowed the fruit, hallowed thy name

guess i needed something to break me
guess i needed something to shake me up
guess i needed someone to break me
guess i needed someone to shake me out

afraid to live, afraid to die
building a broken but precious web
like a spider in Chernobyl
and when the cattle low, something is on the horizon
i do not have a child
but i’m old enough to know some pain
and i’m hell bent on loving you
women know what it is to endure

guess i needed something to break me
guess i needed something to shake me up
guess i needed someone to break me
guess i needed someone to shake me out
it was you
it was you

bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Track Name: American Darkness
when you come dead last
in battles long past
intended to rip my heart out
oracle of your secrets

your eye was trained on me
as i stood before you, unbuttoning
kiss me as the bell tolls
swiftly, as the horses ride

won’t you dance
won’t you dance
won’t you dance
won’t you dance

damn my dreams, the tormentors
last night your mouth was on my skin
and the poppies were like fire on the mountain
i took your hand and led you home

all my old ways have started kickin in
and my bad days are comin round again
left here in American darkness
river on fire and sun eclipsed

won’t you dance
won’t you dance
won’t you dance
won’t you dance
(cause i’m comin)

when you come
when you come
when you come
when you come back to me
