Track Name: Up To The Teeth
She was barely seventeen when she started to learn her trade
Her daddy was a butcher and to his job very much a slave
He'd take pride in his work and his work was his life
To the annoyance of his friends but mostly his wife
Now daddy's little girl was following in his ways

And he said 

You mark my words and you take your lead from me
Oh darling sweet darling
Well you start from below and you take it right up to the teeth
Oh darling sweet darling 

So she set out to be the very best she could be
She worked to the bone she worked til it all did bleed
She worked and she sweat and she sweat as she worked
Until all that remained were the remains on her shirt
Her father stood proud as he saw his job complete 

And he said

You mark my words and you take your lead from me
Oh darling sweet darling
Well you start from below and you take it right up to the teeth
Oh darling sweet darling

Oh darling sweet darling (repeat)

It was just at this time he had given all he could give
He left this world and all the precious things in it
And so she did stand with a knife in her hand
And a passion inside brought forth by that man
With a wettened smile she made her incision deep

And she said

You mark my words and you take your lead from me
Oh darling sweet darling
Well you start from below and you take it right up to the teeth
Oh darling sweet darling

Oh darling sweet darling (repeat)
Track Name: More Than You
I’m gonna love you
More than you do
I’ll move every star to spell your name.
The skies if they open
I’ll close them for certain
I’ll let through only the gentlest of rain

And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above every blessed thing
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything

When that rain falls
The precipitation I’ll cause to pause
And envy every droplet close to you
The ones that make contact
With your yellow rain mac
I’ll keep in the safest of safes that’s the truth

And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above every blessed thing
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything

I’ll treasure the safe’s key
By hanging it like a chain to me
Not the tide if it turned could break it loose
If that tide then made for the shore
To be with you forevermore
I would catch every fish in the sea just for you

And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above every blessed thing
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything

And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
And I’ll hold you up high
Up above everything
Track Name: River Deep
Come real close
And hear me
I’ll tell you of
The river deep
It had a heart
And limbs and a soul
But it’s belly was formed
Of an empty hole

How you cursed
And hollered at me
Cried out loud
The river deep
How you cursed
And hollered at me
Now you bow
To the river deep

It got hips that shake
All about the place
It got a mind of it’s own
And a murderous taste
Well it held him down
And it robbed him of all
Like a drenched rat he fell
Deep down down down into that hole

How you cursed
And hollered at me
Cried out loud
The river deep
How you cursed
And hollered at me
Now you bow
To the river deep

Tempt me in (Repeat x16)

It got hips that shake
All about the place
It got a mind of it’s own
And a murderous taste
Well it held him down
And it robbed him of all
Like a drenched rat he fell
Deep down down down into that hole

How you cursed
And hollered at me
Cried out loud
The river deep
Oh how you cursed
And hollered at me
Cried out loud
The river deep

Oh how you cursed
And hollered at me
Cried out loud
The river deep
And it tempted him in
And it tempted him in
And his soul was claimed there and then

Oh how you cursed
And hollered at me
Cried out loud
The river deep
And it tempted him in
And it tempted him in
And his soul was claimed there and then

Oh how you cursed
And hollered at me
Cried out loud
The river deep
Oh tempt me in
Oh tempt me in
Track Name: Evelyn
A Searing Heat
A Burning
Set her soul
On fire
It burnt so bad
Fifth degree
Blackening all
Inside of her

Oh Evelyn
Oh Evelyn
Down she went
Again and again

The river so cold
Tempted her in
Her soul still ablaze
Now longing for fins
It quickened its pace
And heightened its heat
The river now close
And the fire beat

Oh Evelyn
Oh Evelyn
Down she went
Again and again

The cold came soon
For Evelyn
The charring removed
The fire quenched
No searing heat
No burning
No more for
Evelyn

Oh Evelyn
Oh Evelyn
Down she went
Again and again
