In Gala's Castle (free) 04:00
when i was your game show host you were my molten lava we won a free trip to the coast the coast of brava the studio audience just crawled out of the sea they built a throne for you and threw yellow roses at me but in gala's castle i caught a curious cold in gala's castle everything's old but the shadows are older in here i walk the floor for more than 34 years but what's the reason for? i left it to you to leave when the going got gone opened me up like an emergency exit sold my shoes for a song you can still hold a candle to the winds of hell i can still sleep between the tolls of salvation army bells but in gala's castle i can't find the bar in gala's castle the city looks far but the windows look farther in here i hold the past and cast a shadow on the door but what's the reason for? what's the reason for...?

i met her in a bar down in oklahom' right outside her daddy's motor home you can swim there, i swear watch her hair fall down upon her breast-stroke shoulders you wouldn't know her from a bar room mirror still i could show you how to find her there before she dives into the ocean and puts her lipstick on if it scares you then yer halfway free if it frees you then you have to start all over again so keep yer finger on the button baby and put the darker shade of lipstick on you can dive into the ocean (destruction is coming) or you can walk into the sea (destruction is free) she's only everything you wanted (destruction is coming) she's only everything you need (destruction is free) she left me dead in a field with her hands around my throat it felt so good to have it out in the open then she dove into the ocean and put the darkest shade of lipstick on when she scares you then yer halfway free when she frees you then you have to start all over again i met her in a dive down in oklahom'

Breach (free) 06:15
you climb through the hole in my mind and you land on the carpet my eyes roll back slowly and find you standin' in the darkness then the sun shines through and yer gone i come to on yer mama's lawn again i'm tryin' to call out your name but i don't remember it the powers that was bought the farm now here's us on the run with freedom that drools like a marketing tool in the sun while teardrops like investors crawl to the balcony landings and fall when you finally call out my name i don't recognize it for the breach in the skull for the radioactive glow for the waves push and pull for all the time that it took to get here we're still waiting and for all that i know this old hole in my dome lets the rain in still the gates to yer pastures are closed and the horse i rode in on's been dosed for all of yer mama's best words woman rescue me from the breach in the skull from the radioactive glow from the waves push and pull for the breach in the skull for the radioactive glow for the waves push and pull

Fat Old Molly (free) 04:41
i found my molly just lying on the bed a look upon her face i couldn't read again like some huge rubber dolly from life's other side my fat old molly just lying on the bed all the farewells now too late to be said she was all i ever had now my molly's dead like a lily white whale the miller pulled out of the river my sweet old molly just lying on the bed see an empty bottle on the floor see another empty bottle on the pillow by her head see a third empty bottle on the pillow it is the mind of molly little fat old molly just lying on the bed she was something earlier this afternoon so i went hunting through the hollows just to get a taste or two now i return feeling a bit better on the table is this letter molly is colder rounder paler than the moon across a universe of piss it's finally come to this lord what's a poor man to do? just kiss her and whisper in her ear produce a hunting knife and make one cut from here to there slowly pull open the skin take a deep breath and dive right into fat old molly

From Hell (free) 03:24
i stare into the bottomlessness of her eye's abyss wander through the dark to find the true nature of darkness is darker it can always get with one exception my baby's eyes she's got the rack and judas cradle she is the iron maiden she's got a dungeon full of Machiavellian dwarves heaven knows i'll feel the torture well beyond the marble orchard my baby she comes from hell my baby comes from hell i let her in my heart now i pray my soul to sell when she opens up her coat i abandon all hope for my baby comes from hell innocents bellow from the skull of her bronze brazen bull she feeds them riddles in the dark she comes first and follows after she kills the joy and ends all laughter my baby comes from hell my baby comes from hell i loved her more than life now i pray my soul to sell i gave her half a chance now in damnation i dance with my baby my baby comes from hell i let her in my heart she led me to the bottom of a well when she opens up her coat i abandon all hope my baby comes from hell
