Track Name: Dark Angel (part 1)
When the night has come
She takes to flight for blood
Cuz she’s gonna find
What she needs tonight
She will feed on you
Keep you half alive

The dark angel comes

Ride the night
In a storm that lasts forever
Out across the bay
Where the ravens play
Cold and high
You might see the gates of heaven
Through the pouring rain
But you’re miles and miles away
Track Name: I Love You To Death
Purple, blue, red to black
These are the colors that you give back
After a while it'll turn to green
A little reminder of what you mean

Across the field I see your light
Sounds of wailing pierce the night
Flaming embers light the sky
Our love is burning and this is why

I love you, I love you to death
Sing to me darling when you draw your last breath
Come to me sweetly and leave me possessed
I love you, I love you, I love you to death

*break*

Beautiful package of sharpened knives
A wooden box to hold your lies
Rusted coils, a glass syringe
The anniversary of our revenge

I love you, I love you to death
Think of me darling when you draw your last breath
No need to worry, no need to confess
I love you, I love you, I love you to death

*break*

Side by side upon the hill
Our brambled vines are growing still
Beneath the moor, the growing heather
The sun sets in the west forever

I love you, I love you to death
Sing to me darling when you draw your last breath
Come to me sweetly and leave me possessed
I love you, I love you, I love you to death

I love you, I love you, I love you to death

Track Name: Jekyll and Hyde
Killer
You set fire to the sea
You’re such a big mystery, killer
You never sleep

An old man
A long, long time ago once told me
If you ever really wanna hurt somebody
Take it from an old man
Go for the heart, that’s the key

But there’s a marksman
Takin’ aim at me
Dodgin’ flyin’ bullets
Constantly
And the devil
Follows closely
He was just waitin’ for me

Killer
Put away your weaponry
Here, have your victim’s plea
Killer, please
I beg your mercy

But this is me
I’ve got a murderer inside of me
Some sort of split personality
Jekyll and Hyde in my veins
Runnin’ free

But there’s a marksman
Takin’ aim at me
Dodgin’ flyin’ bullets
Constantly
And the devil
Follows closely
He was just waitin’ for me
After all
Track Name: Pumpkin Head
Pumpkin headed woman is all I need
I just cut off the top and I scoop out the seeds
In her pumpkin head with a Jack-o-lantern smile
When she’s walking through the corn you can see her for a mile
With her pumpkin head, witch’s shoes on her feet
Shuffling down the street, trying to trick or treat

She’s my pumpkin head, pumpkin head
My pumpkin head
She’s my pumpkin head

That Jack-o-lantern grin may need an orthodontist
But I wouldn’t change a thing to be perfectly honest
Of my pumpkin head, pumpkin head
She’s my pumpkin head, my pumpkin head
My pumpkin head

She’s sweet as pumpkin pie
With her triangle nose and her triangle eyes
She’s my pumpkin head and I thank the lord
For sending me a woman with a head like a gourd

Pumpkin head, she’s my pumpkin head
Little pumpkin head

She’s sweet and kind, no she’s never a meanie
You oughta see the way she handles my zucchini
My little pumpkin head she’s got a fire inside
When I see her coming I swell up with pride
When we both grow old and there’s frost on the pumpkin
Baby, that ain’t gonna stop me from a little dicky dunkin’

Pumpkin head! Pumpkin head
She’s my pumpkin head
My pumpkin head
She’s my pumpkin head
My pumpkin head, pumpkin head, pumpkin head
She’s my pumpkin head
My pumpkin head
Track Name: Morella
MORELLA
Andrea Wittgens, Corinne Lee, Fred Young
Oct 25, 2010

Once was a lady Morella
Skin like a porcelain doll
Songs from her lips drive a man to the tip top
Teeter on the edge of her magic breath

He marries the songbird Morella
A union of syrup gone sour
She bends him in spells with tonic she sells
As romances but these trances are just murderous advances

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me

You’re losing your luster, Morella
Laughing from your deathbed you say
“You hate me in life but you’ll love me in death”
What a curious crumb from a last breath

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me

Left me a daughter peculiar
Sings from the tongue of her mother
A child with no name til the baptism day
To the ear of the priest returns the deceased

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me

Morella, you will have the last laugh
Tick Tock, your voice it never stops
Morella from the lips of a babe
You call me
Call me
You call me
Call me
You call me
Call me
Track Name: Beautiful Jane
I watch your movies I don’t
Care there’s no plot
You are so beautiful you
Make me so hot
When it’s all over I don’t
Want it to end so I
Push play and watch it again

Death is so permanent but
Babe not for you
I got your photograph and
I know it’s true
One day we’ll be together
Just wait and see
Your death is heaven to me

Beautiful Jane
Beautiful Jane
Let all my dreams
Come out to play
Beautiful Jane
Beautiful Jane
Don’t let your head
Get in the way

She was a motoring
‘Cross Louisiana
St. Bernard Parish where she
Lost control
The wind was in her hair and
Her head was in the air and
Across the pavement it rolled
Track Name: Alley Cat
ALLEY CAT
Geri X, Andrea Wittgens
Oct 26, 2010

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to

Here’s my sister, your wedding gift
Untouched, pure, asleep
And when you tire I’ll bring you the girl next door

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to

Helter Skelter, babe, we’re family
Got my gun, my knife my rope
Stabbed her 16 times and wrote your name in red on the wall

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to

I’m an alley cat strong and brave
I hunt to kill the prize for you babe
There’s no thing I would not do for you
Anything you want me to
Anything you want me to
Track Name: Widows Walk
Where the sky meets water
You’re out in the storm
I stand by this chimney
Watching rain clouds form

Ghostly premonition
Shows you falling down
Skull is cracked and bleeding
Sinking down to drown

I’m here crying
When will you be home
If you’re dying
I’ll come too

Ooh –

I smell your skin in the wind
I feel your fingers on my lips
I hear your whispers in my ears

Ooh -
Track Name: Buttercup
I’m gonna cut you up buttercup
And stick you in my trunk
Drive out to the desert
And dig a hole

I’m gonna cover your head in spunk
And shovel on some dirt
Maybe that way I can
Cover up this hurt

You used to be sweet as apple pie
But now you’re sauerkraut
Ever since you doinked that other guy
And thought I’d never find out

I shoulda known you didn’t have sewing class
Every night
It seems pretty strange for anyone to sew that much
I shoulda known something was up
When you booked that business trip
Because you don’t even have a job
Track Name: Mummy Baby Boogie
MUMMY BABY BOOGIE

INTRO - I want to take you to my Mummy's house

V1:
I can't take my Mummy anywhere
Mummy Baby Boogie
Mummy Baby Boogie
Yeah, she gets soggy drunk
Mummy Baby Boogie
Mummy Baby Boogie
Oooo baby, you're so cold and stiff
Mummy Baby Boogie
Mummy Baby Boogie
Oooo don't you know that's usually my job baby
Mummy Baby Boogie
Mummy Baby Boogie

Chorus:
I want to unwind and unravel you baby
I really need to know just what's inside
I want to unwind and unravel you baby
I really need to know just what you hide

V2:
She won't give it up man she just won't give it up now
MBB
MBB
I'm just going to sit here on these bathroom tiles and make sure I'm by myself
MBB
MBB
Woooooo, I'll be sore and kind
MBB
MBB
Doin' damage to myself
MBB
MBB

Outtro:
Mummy Baby Boogie (X11)
Track Name: Borrowed Time
You never know how many moves you’ll make
You never know how many breaths you’ll take
You’ll never know even if you try
To follow all the rules of a healthy life

Chorus:
I cry, why oh why
Must I watch the beauty all die
We’re all on borrowed time
Death’s waiting on the line

You never know what kind of life you’ll live
You never know how much you’ll give
You never know ‘til it passes you by
Another star fallen from the sky

Chorus
Track Name: Candy From A Cash Machine
Got myself a fix but it didn’t do the trick
Tried to get warm but my blood’s too thick
And I need an operation ‘cause I’m feeling kinda sick
Body’s on the floor and I’m sinking like a brick

Never seen the sky from the edge of a crater
Got my veins hooked up to a dead generator
Coulda been a Jedi but I had to be a Vader
I’ve been riding through the fires in the service elevator

Like a broken arrow I couldn’t shoot it clean
I’ve been looking at my life like a dirty magazine
Shoulda been easy but from what I’ve seen
It’s hard to get candy from a cash machine

Lights out, elevator up
There’s a deal going down and I gotta get a cut
When you run the west side
With the dealers and the creeps
You sweat it when they call
And hear them in your sleep
Kick ‘em to the curb they always crawlin’ back
You hear ‘em in the alleys when they talking that smack

So I beat ‘em with a stick, and I’m feeling like a fiend
Running out of tricks and it’s nearly Halloween
Shoulda been easy but from all I’ve seen
It’s hard to get candy from a cash machine
Shoulda been easy but from all I’ve seen
It’s hard to get candy from a cash machine

Yesterday I gotta tip from a dirty cop
He said we gotta cash out, so I’m closing shop
Is there any other way, I been having my doubts
Gimme one last deal and I swear I’m out

There won’t be no complications, you can come for the ride
It’ll go down easy I’ll be satisfied
You’re a trick you’re a treat, there’s no in-between
Time to get candy from a cash machine
You’re a trick you’re a treat, there’s no in-between
Time to get candy from a cash machine
Track Name: When My Heart Grew Empty
Hello, God
Are you listenin’?
I ain’t got nothin’ left in me

Hey, God
Can you hear me?
I don’t wanna live no more
I’m so sick of me

I feel like a thousand bloody bruises
And a whole lotta nothin’
I wanna push in my eyes with my thumbs
And blow out my eardrums
And lay myself down in the ground
And grow empty and numb
I’ve come completely undone
Track Name: For Bitten Love
It’s so hard bein’ a werewolf
When you’re goin’ through puberty
All the girls they look so pretty
But they don’t like me
‘Cause I’m so hairy

I go to school every day
And sit by my lonesome
No one talks to me
They don’t think I’m handsome
But I found a girl that likes me for me
I’m gonna bring her home to meet my family

Son, how could be hangin’ around with that human trash?
You’re disrespecting your father.
Why can’t you find a nice werewolf girl to hang around with?

Please, Dad, listen, I found my white dove
Caroline is the one I love
She likes it when I howl at the moon
I’ve been marked and I can’t be saved

You’re just gonna break that nice girl’s heart.
I’ve raised you better than that.
I’m always trying to help you meet nice werewolf girls and you never listen.
Your father’s right, you’re embarrassing the family.

Jimmy, Jimmy, you’re the one for me
I’m gonna make your parents see
I’m not scared of your kind
‘Cause I can’t get you out of my mind
No, I can’t get you out of my mind
No, I can’t get you out of my mind

Don’t worry we can be together
No one can tear us apart
I really love you, Caroline
Hold me, Jimmy, hold me
Once a werewolf, always a werewolf
Track Name: Dark Angel (Part 2)
There’s a place you can hide
Might be safe for awhile
When the wind picks up
And you feel her touch
She will take it all
But it’s not enough

The dark angel comes

Ride the night
In a storm that lasts forever
Out across the bay
Where the ravens play
Cold and high
You might see the gates of heaven
Through the pouring rain
But you’re miles and miles away

Ride the night
In a storm that lasts forever
Out across the bay
Where the ravens play
Cold and high
You might see the gates of heaven
Through the pouring rain
But you’re miles and miles and miles away
