Track Name: Scarecrow
There's a scarecrow in my head
Chasing all my thoughts away
And he tells me I'm better off dead
But I know there's another way

But it's so damn hard sometimes
When you've got no one to call
And you feel so all alone inside

There's nothing to keep the tears
From falling from your eyes

There's a scarecrow in my bed
Chasing all my dreams away
And he tells me I'm better off dead
But I know there's another way

But it's so damn hard sometimes
When you've got no one to call
And you feel so all alone inside

There's nothing to keep the tears
From falling from your eyes

When my dreams come to me
I'm not there anymore

I can't believe I opened up myself to you
I cut myself just like a fool
But oh I'm still glad I did
The songs you've given to my soul
Help to hold the scarecrows back

At least for now
And that's enough
To make me smile
That's enough
To save my soul today
Track Name: Skeleton
I'm a skeleton man
With my skeleton hands
And I'm looking for love

Someone that I can hold
Keep my bones from the cold
Man, I feel so alone

But there's no one around
In this graveyard town
And I feel so down

Think I'll walk to the sea
Like many before me
Bury all of my woe
In its blue depths below
Let its icy touch embrace me

All that I used to know
Is gone now. Watch it blow
Into the dusty sea (Bye Bye)
Into the dirt and debris (Bye Bye)

Like a seed that never grows
I'll be lonely forevermore

I'm a skeleton man
With my skeleton plans
And I'm looking for you

Someone to keep me warm
Keep my bones from the storm
Man, I feel so forlorn

But there's no one I see
In this graveyard city
And it's such a pity

Think I'll walk to the sea
Like many before me
Bury all of my woe
In its blue depths below
Let its icy touch embrace me

All that I used to know
Is gone now. Watch it blow
Into the dusty sea (Bye Bye)
Into the dirt and debris (Bye Bye)

Like a seed that never grows
I'll be lonely forevermore
Track Name: Dead Man
Oh no I've gone and lost it all
To a dream that slipped inside my soul
I drank her juice not thinking of
What her potion could do to my heart

I was a man now I'm a beast
A slave to a love that never comes
I stumble on through dark and mist
Blind to everything but her love

She's the girl with the golden eye
She'll strike you down, baby
And you'll never even know why
You're on your knees for her

You'll do the zombie shake for her love
You'll fall and hit the ground
And when you die it's without a sound

You're a dead man
There's got to be some better way

She's got the dark arts well defined
A spell for every mind
So if you see her just walk on by
I'm warning all you guys

Don't give your love to that girl
The girl with the golden eye
If you do you'll surely cry
When you find

You're a dead man

There's got to be some better way
There's got to be some great escape
Oh yes, I think I know the way

Still, I have all these songs in my soul
Music will lift me up from my grave
Death can never steal life from me
As long as my music plays

I'll sever the chains
You cast over me
Yes, I was dead
But I will live again!
