Track Name: Desperation Will Turn Honest Men Into Outlaws
When times are hard he's never one to complain
It's controversial but there's always a way
Why do you kill yourself?
Why do you kill yourself?
Breaking your back to make a minimum wage

When there are ways your mother never taught to you
We're capable of evil, that we can attest to
My desperation has turn this honest man into an outlaw
With hell hounds on our trail
My desperation has turn this honest man into an outlaw

You'll feel the devil as he's closing in
You've never had that rope burning your skin
Why do you kill yourself?
Why do you kill yourself?
If your survival requires you to sin

You're getting friendly with a switchblade knife
He'll be there when you get yourself into strife
Why do you kill yourself?
Why do you kill yourself?
It's your choice but you can fuck your honest life

Oh how we struggle for our self control
Our therapy is looking down a bottle
Why do you kill yourself?
Why do you kill yourself?
It'll take a miracle to save your soul
Track Name: Nail (In Her Coffin)
It was a beautiful night that night
I recall that special something in the air
I noticed her from across the room
Fucking me with her eyes
You can't ignore those dirty looks
She must have read the book on how to drive a man wild
Her thoughts were loud enough to read her mind
She just wants your nail in her coffin

I'm not sure what i did to impress
But i wondered it's like to be her dress
She'd been around so takes no guilt
in making me her prey
A little older than my normal choice
But there was so much hunger held within her voice
I told her that I'm gonna make her scream
She just wants your nail in her coffin

She doesn't want to be alone
So why shouldn't I take her home
We we'll waste no time hitching up her dress
She just wants your nail in her coffin

Just when you thought it was all over
I've just got one more surprise for you
I reached over to my bed side desk and opened up the drawer
I lifted out what could only be the largest fucking meat cleaver that you'll ever see
No didn't I say I'm gonna make you scream
She just wants your nail in her coffin
Track Name: The Truth (We're All Gonna Die)
I know it's soon but your time is up
And everyone's asking why
But there isn't anything anyone can do
I know it's fucked, I know its shit
Most people don't like to talk about it
The truth is we are all gonna die

Death will come for everyone
I feel him closing in
He's already been here for some of my good friends
He could be there when you crash your car
It could be a simple as a broken heart
The truth is we are all gonna die

I will do this for you but would you do it for me
It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Did you live for fun, did you enjoy the ride?
Did you get something done, were you satisfied?
The truth is we are all gonna die

They say to make the most of life
I sure hope I did
My only regret is in causing you this pain
When it's my turn I know you'll cry
I only hope I get to kiss you goodbye
The truth is we are all gonna die.
Track Name: Red Light
I pay for electricity
Delilah keeps her light on for me
At least I know that every night
She'll be there to put on her red light

After we share a cigarette
I go home to sleep in my bed
At least I know that every night
She'll be there to put on her red light

Everyone around the world
Everyone need love
I work hard to make the coin
I use to buy your love

At least I know that every night
She'll be there to put on her red light
