My father the archangel Built turbines on the moon Helping industry take flight He smokes cigars that smell Just like her cheap perfume The air is sweet, the tastes are right That's right My mother the sinner Takes children from the womb Under heavy brass arclight A million books from mountains Screaming from monsoons But she can't read, and she can't write! And the world goes boom.

I been learnin' thinks about you dear A little at at time And I've started to convince myself That you're not livin' right My heart it maybe fragile But my mind is just as strong As the Belevedere I'm throughing back Just to try to carry on You better slow things down Dear Isabelle There's a line I'm always crossing: There's a story you won't tell. You better slow things down Dear Isabelle. Now I'm burning up your letters and I'm gonna revel in the ash Cause I've found you're far to careless WIth a heart to make it last You could be my perfect woman but for now you're just too young. With your mamma's looks and your daddy's change You're more dangerous than fun. You better slow things down Dear Isabelle There's a line I'm always crossing: There's a look you're tryin'' to sell. You better slow things down Dear Isabelle. I don't wanna trust this heart I feel like a child again With a love so harsh I'd be a fool to let you in See you stumbling on the boulevard With a glaze over your eye It's a phase that beauty goes through and I know it's gonna die. I hope you felt invincible when pullin' on my strings I just hope you'll have some mercy on the man who's after me.

I shot the beast, I killed the beast it's way down there. Got me a bad compulsion to breathe air. I'll pack my bags, you pack your bags We'll drive down again. And all you do is follow you down. I watched the sun come up at dawn I strapped my camera on. Yout put my lifeline halfway down The black hole. Nine hundred feet; let's start right now Let's bring a man home. And all you do is follow me down. All you do is follow me down. I feel my breath grow hot and fast He's free at last. Tangled up and floatin' low. I feel my breathing slow. Nine hundred feet or nine hundred miles I think I'll stay awhile. And don't you dare follow me down. Don't you dare follow me down.

I'm gonna ride next summer My father and brother are gone I'm gonna find the front line I'm gonna miss my mother, She never did antying wrong I'm hope she sees that's true in time. I want to see their faces again,m I want to touch their hands again I don't care what this ride portends My girls' sixteen at the withers after all. I can't wait to pound the mud I've been locked in this quay for years I'm gone find the front line/ I don't have a thought to where we go His whisper is soft and low. I'm gonna find the rank and file. I want to see their faces again,m I want to touch their hand again I don't care what this ride portends I am sixteen at the withers after all.

You've been asleep now for hours It's been a long drive It's always scenic and beautiful out here And you'll love the sunshine I know I've been awful quiet. Speeding though daylight. But I found this clearing on top of a mountain Where we'll say our goodbyes. Gonna take you home Thank the traveler for the rose Stay awake; I'm taking you home. And I know you probably got questions. You were the May Queen. I know the drinks made you tireder than usual, But don't fight the ketamine. Gonna take you home Thank the traveler for the rose Stay awake; I'm taking you home. I'll never speak of another. You'll never see the light. I'll leave with you here your favorite flower Which you'll help to fertilize. Gonna take you home Thank the traveler for the rose Stay awake; I'm taking you home. Stay awake; I'm taking you home.

about

The boys from Atlanta deliver a second dose of loud rock and roll about horses, mothers, living underwater, monsters with pretty names, and just plain ole' monsters.
