My baby is all Summer then she's all Winter She don't celebrate the Fall She don't tolerate no Evil to be found She's the sweetest thing, she's my girl My baby is cool silver and stately black She can operate my gun She don't contemplate no evil against her man She's the Sweetest Thing she's my girl I don't dream sweet dreams about her I can't sleep sweet sleep without her I can't tease apart the day She's the sweet sweet sweetest thing So pretty as she lies Nothing beautiful is true
Psyche 03:56
Have you seen my baby walkin side of the road? if you see my baby lord she ain't got no place to go who's gonna shoe her little feet? who's gonna glove her hands? who's gonna kiss her red red lips? who's gonna be her man? who's gonna be her man? she's a cold infinite wave discretely symbolized she is not what she is soul not of a man Psyche walk beside me dark end of the road can't find no hearts to bind no place like home brightness of midnight is ever around her loneliness and death-rattle stillness go beside her who's gonna be her man?
I've been travelling across the desert they call me the passing breeze brothers and sisters I have plenty they don't know me I'm from the open road I'm gonna go someplace warm and dark and lovely I'm gonna seat all of my children round the table Mom and dad I can't stay here I've gotta leave leave my old home lord I'm going land of plenty milk and honey wear my brand new clothes I'm gonna strip my mind of flesh and bone and body I'm gonna see all of my friends that I have missed missed,,, Calamity Jane what's the matter with you? why don't you love me like you used to do? You know my hair is still curly and my eyes, lord, my eyes are still blue ah! Why don't you love me? why don't you love me?
Tribulations 04:14
Trials, troubles, tribulations such as never been before when the sun don't shine his light and the moon all die of fright fire come down from heaven the blood shall fill the sea I've been chosen and anointed i am come at the dawn of time so like lightning strike the east flash far out into the west i am death there is no fullness without me The mark must be upon your forehead these worldly goods you then can buy depart from me i never knew you i hear my blessed savior cry no second sight no soft wind blows no hope for rest Depart from me i never knew you i hear my blessed savior cry i am death there is no fullness without me
