The Valley of Sickness, that's where I live that was the name that the Indians give the sky's always gray, and the rain comes down the withered and dying crawl close to the ground The Valley of Sickness creeps through the town where two poisonous rivers watch you drown the skin on your skeleton festers away - hey the sun never shines and the microbes play The Valley of Sickness knows only one cure that's to wait out, that's to endure the weeping, teeth gnashing, the unbearable crying Someday, they say, the sun will shine.

He rides the train beneath the steam end of the line town of Machine the town they call Machine They live in filth they stink like death kill what they want discard the rest they destroy He meets a girl she sleeps with death her bullet tears into his breast Nobody knows what is to come follow the road into the sun Nobody knows what is to be follow the crow into the sea into the sea

Ghost Train arrives at 11:11 24 hours between hell and heaven no big hurry for the newly departed suicide ride for the broken-hearted Ghost Train is coming to take you home. Ghost Train whistles so deep and low if you don't hear it, you don't go the time will come to get on board if the Devil don't get you, then talk to the Lord Ghost Train is coming to take you home.

In the streaming sunlight at the edge of water see the pretty boy step among the flowers calls his lovers to him throws them all away they don't mean a thing - it's a game he plays In the streaming sunlight at the edge of water see the pretty boy step on all the flowers he doesn't really know no, he doesn't really care only wants to stand above while the flowers stare In the streaming sunlight at the edge of water see the pretty boy drowning in the flowers he falls - in - stars

Come on everybody take a chance with me gonna take a trip from reality gonna take a magic carpet ride milk and honey flow on the other side Everything is different tonight I can't wait to see you tomorrow The sun is shining from the inside we breathe underwater and we walk through the sky time only matters when it has to stop but it keeps on going after you drop Everything is different tonight I can't wait to see you tomorrow

When you found me, I was tiny. Then you fed me, and I grew big - like a pig. Now I am your diamond ring, thick with gold and gasoline. You will give me everything - BIG. You dig? You won't deny - you won't deny You live to satisfy ME. I'm hungry! Feed me! I know how you need me. You will give me everything - BIG You dig? You won't deny - you won't deny You live to satisfy ME.

Wicked Woman don't tempt me with your ways Wicked Woman don't wreck the rest of my days Wicked Woman got snakes growing out of her head Wicked Woman done left me for dead Wicked Woman likes to boogie all night long Wicked Woman don't know her right from wrong Wicked Woman don't find no thrill Wicked Woman find someone else who will Wicked Woman don't tempt me with your ways Wicked Woman don't wreck the rest of my days Wicked Woman got snakes growing out of her head Wicked Woman done left me for dead WICKED WOMAN WICKED WOMAN

When I was a young man, I was bold and brave. I was always searching for adventure that I'd crave. Claimed I'd try most anything - it couldn't come too soon. Then they introduced me to the needle and the spoon. First I was in heaven - yeah, life was just a dream - then it took a turn for worse - I heard my mama scream. Everybody's praying that you'll soon change your tune - but I kept on playing the needle and the spoon. Years flew by, and where am I? Forgotten and forlorn. I tried to make one last attempt - so tattered and so torn - I sing my song for sorry folks in a musty old saloon - I'm forever haunted by the needle and the spoon.
