Track Name: Oh Death
Oh death Oh death
Oh who will you take next
You've taken my dearest friend
You've taken my dearest friend

Oh death Oh death
Oh who will you take next
You've taken my faithful hound dog
You've taken my faithful hound dog

When I wake up in the morning
blues all around my brain
I can't but wondering
Who you'll take today

Oh death Oh death
Oh who will you take next
You've taken my darling loved one
You've taken my darling loved one

Oh death Oh death
Oh won't you take me next
i can't go on living this way
I can't go on living this way

When I wake up in the morning
feeling all alone
it's just cause you've taken
Everyone that I know
Track Name: Sister Mercy
Sister Mercy
I ain't feeling well today
well I dropped that old gin bottle
now everything seems strange
Sister Mercy
ain't living off your time

Sister Mercy
I do believe I'm really sick this time
I can't help my crying
over all our friends who've died
Sister Mercy
done living off your dime

When my money's all gone
and I ain't got nothing to lose
and I'm just one of the good ol' boys
howling for some booze
Sister Mercy
well on my judgment day
will you forgive or forsake me?
don't give a damn either way

will you forgive or forsake me?

Sister Mercy
you ain't no friend of mine
no you ain't no friend of mine
Sister Mercy
don't need your peace of mind

Sister Mercy
Track Name: White Crosses
Dead soldiers leave secrets
on white crosses
they spread like daisies
in the meadow

Their skeletons have wasted
now mourning the time spent
surviving the trenches
of a long long time ago

and I'm trying not to lose my mind
well lord, I'm trying

Gunshots pierce the sunset
they don't grasp the concept
the sun will return
and it's always shining

In those quite lonely hours
where the rain feeds the flowers
their bloody horses
are cleansed

and I'm trying not to lose my mind
well lord, I'm trying

A steam train is howling
smoke trails the horizon
thunder rolls
all through the hills

I'm laying here shaken
with my eyes towards the heavens
praying to nothing
that no-one prays from me

and I'm not to lose my mind
well lord, I'm trying
Track Name: Dirt
There are some things worse than being alone
while you're drunk on some dance floor
I'm drinking at home
and my ears are ringing
like some dusty pay phone
but silence ain't too much to bare

I've got a bottle of pills and some old 45's
and I don't mind living lord
but I wouldn't mind dying
I've traveled all across this country
just sinking in dives

I"ve seen dreams reveal nightmares my friends
I've seen dreams reveal nightmares

There are some things worse than being alone
when you realize too late
you're better off alone
and the days that you wasted
won't carry you home
well regret is too much to bare

Some will float like the leaf
some will sink like the stone
some will jump from the cliff
some will hang from the rope
but it don't matter none
cause the falling's the same

and we'll all be dirt in the ground my friends
we'll all be dirt in the ground boys
we'll all be dirt in the ground
Track Name: I'll always be the fool
Some will win, some will lose
And I'll always be the fool
I've never learned nothin'
In this cruel cruel world
