(Instrumental)
Track Name: Roll Out The Black
Roll out the black across the sky,
Smother leaves and watch them die,
For all that's grey or dark or light
Is all the same to you and I.

Fill their ears, blind their eyes,
Stop all the laughter and their cries,
And if all there is will cease to be,
It's all the same to you and me.

Turn your back on all your plans,
Let your dream slip through your hands,
If all we've ever had we lose,
It's all the same to me and you.

Thinking about what won't be (taken away)
Worried about what will be (taken away)
Missing the things that have been (taken away)
Track Name: By The Grace Of Genghis
Be ready in your prime to die,
Meet the end with grace,
And if you are to be afraid,
May it not show on your face.
For you are just a flower,
Among a field of many more,
When you dip and bow your head,
The others need not mourn.
Be ready in your prime to die,
Meet the end with grace,
May you know that when you leave,
There'll be ten more to take your place.
Entrust yourself to all you meet,
You can be sure to understand,
Although your time here may be brief,
They hold forever in their hands.
Track Name: The Window
Floating on the breezy night
You slipped so quickly out of sight,
And you could still come back here
But you dont.
And i'm waiting by a window
That i pray you'll blow back into,
And i'm hoping you'll come by here
But you won't.

I could never let that window close,
Though all that seems to blow through there is cold.

Thoughts of you that never pass
And printed lips on photographs,
How they will never reach you now
I know.
But i can still remember
In the warmth of late September,
And if i could get back there now
I would go.

I could never let that window close
Though all that seems to blow through there is cold.
(Repeat)
Though all that seems to blow through there is cold.

Track Name: Darlin' Corey
Tell me Darlin' Corey
What makes you sleep so sound?
The revenue officers are coming,
They're gonna tear your stillhouse down.
Well the first time i seen Darlin' Corey
Was sitting on the banks of the sea,
Had a '44 around her body
And a five string on her knee.

Go away, Go away Darlin' Corey,
Quit hanging around my bed,
Your liquor has ruined my body
And pretty women gone to my head.
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow,
Dig a hole in the cold damp ground,
Dig a hole,dig a hole in the meadow,
We're gonna lay Darlin' Corey down.

Don't you hear them bluebirds singing?
Don't you hear that mournful sound?
They're preaching Darlin' Corey's funeral
In some lonesome graveyard town.
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow,
Dig a hole in the cold damp ground,
Dig a hole,dig a hole in the meadow,
We're gonna lay Darlin' Corey down.

Track Name: Everything
Tomorrow you're a stranger
And not a friend.
More and more are saying that
We're gonna end up paying
For denial and delay in seeing
Where it's gonna lead in the end.
Tomorrow you're a stranger
And not a friend.
I could care more about anyone
Than about you
Friends are all agreed about
The way it's gonna lead,
If what they say will come to be,
Maybe they're all
we're gonna need in the end.
But i could care more about anyone,
Than about you.
