Track Name: When I Decide
Darlin' there's a river near the house where I grew up
And I think it might be moving fast enough
And there's a silence there so thick that you could stick a knife in it
Or anything that you've been dreaming of

And you should know that my affections are always true
And my heart's got a tricky valve that beats for nobody but you

And when I decide to kill you
I'll do it with my hands
And fine gloves worth the death of a gentleman
My words may seem mighty hollow
But don't doubt that I can
'Cos I've got long fingers for a woman

Last night I found a note you wrote and left inside my room
And picked apart the words you didn't choose
I wrote out every one and then I hid them around your room
This love is bound with heart and guts and glue

May I say that my intentions are through and through
And there's a twitch in my left eyebrow that tics for nobody but you

And when I decide to kill you
I'll do it with my hands
And fine gloves worth the death of a gentleman
My words may seem mighty hollow
But don't doubt that I can
'Cos I've got long fingers for a woman

If I should seem distracted
Oh, you needn't be confused
'Cos darlin', you have no idea the things I'd do for you
There's a hole that's in the wall there
And I put it there for you
'Cos darlin' you have no idea the things I'd do to you

And when I decide to kill you
I'll do it with my hands
And fine gloves worth the death of a gentleman
My words may seem mighty hollow
But don't doubt that I can
'Cos I've got long fingers for a woman
Track Name: The Daylight Here
To my mother, I'll be sorry that I gotta go
To my brother, I'll be sorry that I gotta go
To you I wish that I could say I wish you well
But I think I'll be waiting until
I'm honestly able.

I'm sure the air is lighter on the seas
In every city settled far away from me
Now I'm negotiating with the fear
That something's wrong with the daylight here
And I can't fix it.

Crooked or kind, if I'm free, if I'm fine
Either way, whatever I do
Whichever coast, there'll be room there for ghosts
Either way, I'll be thinking of you.

When gone I have sworn that I will worry not
Of satisfaction, justice, or the will of God
I'm not sure there's any difference in the three
Whatever the conscience decrees
I hope we both feel right.

Crooked or kind, if I'm free, if I'm fine
Either way, whatever I do
Whichever coast, there'll be room there for ghosts
Either way, I'll be thinking of you.
Track Name: Dying to Live
We don't always see eye to eye
But we see how the time's flying by
And we live with a daunting suspicion
That it might not go into remission

So against all the odds we're competing
Though we don't know for sure what we're reading
In the old testament we'd get fire and torment
But the new one says something 'bout healing

We're dying to live
We're trying to live
We're dying to live
Cause there's so much to live for

Miracles don't seem all that fair
If I were God I would know who to scare
And I'd try to repay all the losses
That were caused by incompetent bosses

They knew how to launch an attack
While unarmed you lay flat on your back
And wait for the poison to cure you
Since faith ain't enough to insure you

We're dying to live
Cause there's so much to live for

Angels always get the best lines
Fear not must have worked back in biblical times
But we're full of the facts it's the cross on our backs
When we pray are we just closing our eyes
