Scarecrow 02:48
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

Skeleton 03:15
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

Dead Man 04:26
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!
