Track Name: Time For You
TIME FOR YOU (Reid Paley)

I was born with a bullet in my head
But I’ll find the time for you
I’ll be fucked down and dirty til I’m dead
But I’ll find the time for you

Count the ways that you are lovely
Count the ways that I can win

I was born with a monkey on my back
But I’ll find the time for you
I’ve been gored in the brains and now I’m back
And I’ll find the time for you

Count the ways that you are lovely
Count the ways that I can win

I was born with a poison in my heart
But I’ll find the time for you
(Some other kind of ugliness I never really finished this part)
But I’ll find the time for you

I was born with a monkey on my back
But I’ll find the time for you
I’ve been gored in the brains and now I’m back
And I’ll find the time for you

Time for you

Track Name: Take It Away
TAKE IT AWAY (Reid Paley)

You pass that monkey’s paw to me
Then turn around and go
Away
Say walk on water like a man
Like anybody can
Away

You keep your heart attack
You know I’m never coming back
Just take your broken heart away

I got a tattoo on my soul say nevermore
That’s why I gotta go
Away
Tear my guts out I’m a razor I’m a priest
I gotta go
Away

You keep your heart attack
You know I’m never coming back
Just take your broken heart away

I’m howling at the moon
Tequila heartbeat and a noose
Away
Don’t talk about me I been washed in blood and booze
I gotta go
Away

You keep your heart attack
You know I’m never coming back
Just take your broken heart away

Track Name: Surprise
SURPRISE (Reid Paley)

Open up your eyes
I got a surprise for you
I’ll sing you lullabies
I got a surprise for you
Open up your heart
I got a surprise for you
Here’s your favorite part
I got a surprise for you

There you go
It won’t be long now
There you go

Look what’s in my hand
I got a surprise for you
Don’t try to understand
I got a surprise for you
Come on up the stairs
I got a surprise for you
Try not to be scared
I got a surprise for you

There you go
It won’t be long now
There you go

[Bridge of Mirthless Laughter]

Open up your heart
I got a surprise for you
Here’s your favorite part
I got a surprise for you
Open up your eyes
I got a surprise for you
I’ll sing you lullabies
I got a surprise for you

There you go
It won’t be long now
There you go

Open up your eyes
I got a surprise for you

Track Name: The Best Of All
THE BEST OF ALL (Reid Paley)

You think I’m sad you must be mistaken
Come try to look me in the eye
You’d save my soul but souls are for breaking
Don’t light a candle when I die

You’d think by now
You’d know that I’d
Do anything for you
That’s because
Your next request will be
The best of all

You look so soft and warm when you’re sleeping
All painted red all dressed in white
Your silken silhouette when you’re seething
Some risen angel in the night

You’d think by now
You’d know that I’d
Do anything for you
That’s because
Your next request will be
The best of all

I’m only here to catch
What you have in store for me
I wouldn’t miss it
For the world

You’d think by now
You’d know that I’d
Do anything for you
That’s because
Your next request will be
The best of all

Your next request will be
The best of all
