Track Name: Young William Fear
summer evening
bloody hands
in the corner
house of trance
all your reasons
left to chance
let the police handle it
let the police handle it
william fear was seen 'round ten
let the police handle william fear

strummer's kneeling on my hands
take your beating like a man
let the police handle it
let the police handle it
william fear will not repent
let the police handle william fear
Track Name: Deliver Hell On Me
if you need another boy to suit you down
find my wedding pictures buried in the ground
cos i won't be coming round to watch a friend of mine go down
deliver hell on me

if you need another boy to hold your hand
find my bag of fire buried in the sand
cos i won't be here to watch another smiling preacher man deliver hell on me

you better find another way to sing that song
you better put them words right back where they belong

if you need another boy to hold your hand
find my bag of fire buried in the sand
cos i won't be here to watch another stinking preacher man deliver hell on me

them magic diamonds they've been burning up the mine
i better make my move before i lose my mind

if you need another boy to burn you hands
take my bag of fire to the preacher man
cos i gone to new york city go and catch me if you can
deliver hell on me
Track Name: This Emerald's Heart
this emerald's heart wasn't made to be broken
ain't up for sale to the young or the old
this emerald's heart it can take quite a beating
but if you break it then consider it sold

this emerald's heart wasn't made to be buried
it makes a nest where the angels are cold
making a trade isn't quite necessary
cos if you break it then consider it sold

i never thought i'd use words of your own
ain't got no choice it's really all that i know
this heart is yours now to have and hold
but if you break it then consider it sold

this emerald's heart wasn't made to be buried
it makes a nest where the angels are cold
making a trade isn't quite necessary
cos if you break it then consider it sold

i never thought i'd use words of your own
ain't got no choice it's really all that i know
this heart is yours now to have and hold
but if you break it then consider it sold

this emerald's heart wasn't made to be broken
ain't up for sale to the young or the old
this emerald's heart it can take quite a beating
but if you break it then consider it sold

easy to look at nice to hold
but if you break it then consider it sold
Track Name: Mighty Glass Hammer
i been living in a shoebox something on my mind
nail your secrets on the wall cos i won't tell you mine
no we you're breaking me down
with your mighty glass hammer

sister nancy told me man you better act your age
all these places took my fire they took my minimum wage
no way they're breaking me down
with a mighty glass hammer

two years from the day i told him i will never leave
two years to the time i lost my girl on new years eve no way you're breaking me down
with a might glass hammer

no way you're breaking me down..
Track Name: Not For Nothing
not for nothing but i don't have nothing but this song
i hope you listen
i been lying sleepless watching sirens fade from screams into a whisper
i love you

i came through your door nobody's boy
worn down to no more than a shadow
you showed me the lightning crashing
flashing blue and green outside your window
i love you

they will say i lost it all
say it's time i took a fall
say my golden days are done
we been round enough to know
that any move we make is the correct one

not for nothing but i don't have nothing but this song
i hope you listen
through it all through spring or fall when chaos calls
you'll always be my sister
i love you

get up you little soldier
your eyes are water green and blue
your arms are so small
but your heart is so big
Track Name: Howler
howler
no time to go and find another
i think i'll go now find my mother
you took my baby away

mother
my baby ran off with a howler
i think i'll go now find my brother
he know just what i should say

i took her to a movie where she gave him the eye
turn around to kiss her she was waving me by
took her to the airport she was running like a monkey
screaming give me my man

running through the airport screaming give me my man

martha
i hope you're happy with your howler
i'm gonna go now find my brother
he know just what i should say

running through the airport screaming give me my man

arthur
it's been so long you still my brother
you ain't my brother you a howler
you'll take my baby away

running through the airport screaming give me my man running through the airport screaming give me my man running through the airport screaming give me my man...
Track Name: Off To Bed (Bye Sleepychild)
now it's time for little eyes
to come down and say goodnite
dim your lamp for just a little while
off to bed bye sleepychild

now it's time for older eyes
to keep watch until sunrise
let the devil in for just awhile
off to bed bye sleepychild

while you're sleeping and the world knows nothing
while your dreaming & you're dreaming of something
while you're dreaming and the water keeps running
while you're sleeping and the world knows nothing
little feet while the water keeps running
while your sleeping and your dreaming of something
dream and sleep while the water keeps running
while your sleeping and the world knows nothing

off to bed bye sleepychild..
Track Name: The Green Train
green train green train
going north to Charlemagne
moving neath the moon and rolling faster than the rain
warm rain warm rain morning fog and old blue flame
going to a place that i will never see again

and i say, i see the young boy made of fire!
sitting in the last car drinking wine
I say, i see the rag upon the the wire
swaying to and fro above the line of the

green train green train
going north to Charlemagne
moving neath the moon and rolling faster than the rain
warm rain warm rain morning fog and old blue flame
going to a place that i will never see again...
Track Name: This Wheel Turns Too Often
my friends and foes have made me whole
and irish girl has saved my soul
only time can take what i have found
that wheel turns too often now

in the day before i came to rest
i prayed that i be put to test
i hoped the world would spin me round
that wheel turns too often now

the world he a jealous old tiger
and he don't stop for no one at all
the world he's a jealous old miser
and he don't stop for no one at all
no one at all

lord stay with me
and i with you
through trial and time
we will ring true
my wild eyed days have run to ground
that wheel turns too often now
Track Name: First Comes The Lovin'
first comes the lookin' then comes the lyin'
then comes the huggin' then comes the hidin'
then comes the kissin' then comes the cryin''
first comes the lovin' then comes the dyin'

first comes the lovin' then comes the dyin'..
