Track Name: Prosperity Gospel
Prosperity Gospel

Why always wait for what is promised
What passage then to stare straight at the sea
Hold to my heart a cup of heat
With soap and water remove your rings

A quiver of blues upon
Oh, His banner over me
Sugar Magnolia wafts to me
To be among the favoured

There's a ring around my finger
There's a fire on my tongue
There's a wing around my shoulder
There's a cross around my nape.
There's an ocean growing vastly
There's an anger spilling out.
Track Name: Young Millionaires
Young Millionaires (A letter to Guy)

We all know we are targets
w/ crosshairs aimed at our needs
We are true initiate
a young entraced
Grandpa, pass down your wisdom
I want that surface breaking breath
what now with the knowledge
that my forebears failed me?

Grandpa, pass down your wisdom
forges shining in your wake

I love your warm embrace aboout me
I want that surface breaking breath
I love your strong protection
I want that surface breaking breath

Have we the sound to seize?
Now can we all agree...
that I still hate the sound of guitars?
I still hate the sound of guitars
Track Name: Saving For A Damage Deposit
Saving for a Damage Deposit

The high sheriff set such good example
for the good boys along his beat
Showed me his belt, showed me his teeth
but I come errant again

That my good deeds will rend the entire town
That my billfold will explode & shower down
That I'm stuck between two great mountains
Anything but digging holes again

I will ascend come next pay day
I'll make it rain come next pay day
I can hang til tomorrow, I pray
I'm gonna quit come next pay day
Track Name: Stewardship

All shame upon the gentle men
who joyfully bleed it
God damn the gentle men
who let the water stand

When you inherited the farm
you looked like¸a tornado king
when you caught the torch singing,
gave name to the wildness

You may rest on sundays, but won`t
such sweet air moves over each piece
how perfect it was set to burning
at the hour of the wolf
Into the air, whip the blankets
