Track Name: Springtime Carousel
Something don't feel right about it
Something don't feel right about it
Gimme one good reason I should quit

Take me on your springtime carousel

Drop me in your gold coin wishing well
Drop me in your gold coin wishing well

Take me on your springtime carousel

I am everything you wanted,
but I'm not everything I dreamt I'd be

Take me on your springtime carousel
Track Name: The Date Tree
In the bay of Barataria
Allah redeemed his vow
In the bay of Barataria
Hovering around

Amid the vivid flashes
The scowl of malefactors
Gliding, gliding, gliding
In a vessel

It was the Sultan's brother
Who fled the home of his maiden
She's dying, she's dying, she's dying
Under the date-tree

She's dying, she's dying, she's dying
Under the date tree

On the corner of Orleans,
The shallow earth was raised
In a garden, a garden, a garden
That the earth made
Track Name: Repeat Violence
I can't stand the heat in the street in the middle of the afternoon
Downtown walking down with a meddlin' tune in my head
As pigeons pass the clap coke can dance
"it's hard work but it's honest work"
Last laugh, hot blast, cold casket,
The bold move fast but they never last
Downtown with all the timebombs tickin'
With the pedal to the ground and the bass drum kickin'

Violence
For all the repeat violence

Everybody's takin' pictures but I'm not takin' one
I don't care if it's the last sunset I ever see
It'd be the same to me
Shorty looks up for the dimes of change but times are strange
Now when all the timebombs boom
Armored cars at the school so the kids can learn
Everyone stands by like it ain't their turn
Downtown with all the timebombs tickin'
With the pedal to the ground and the bass drum kickin'

Violence
For all the repeat violence
Track Name: This Time
She was born and she died
Inside of withered chrome
Beneath those broken eyes
Her soul was overgrown

Let it go, just change your mind
Lighten up this time

I went out all alone
To sing a song or two
I found her sitting there
Dressed in her chosen youth

Let it go, just change your mind
Lighten up this time

Shorn the locks bred in swamps
I sing a song or two
Did he die or did I
Or was it only you?

Let it go, change your mind
Lighten up this time
Track Name: This Heart Of Mine
This heart of mine
Don't get too close
It don't seem to share
What it knows

The days go by
I don't suppose
You got a light
That grows

This heart of mine
Won't seem to give
'Cause one more push
Is gonna set it off the edge

So don't get too close
It gets dark inside
And I don't suppose
You got a light

With you I feel safe (oh I feel safe)
With you I feel secure (oh I feel secure)
But how will I know if this is pure?

This heart of mine
It's a little bit rough
It don't seem to know
When enough is enough
