The Badlands 03:40
Badlands there’s a fire in the sky on devil’s night hundreds I can see upon their restless steeds they’re gonna ride to the border of Mexico it’s do or die, their torches held up high chorus: it’s the badlands where dead men tell no tales and the wind it tolls no bells where heaven meets hell and the night it screams and wails hear the sound of the coyotes’ moan in this god forsaken desert home where blackened shadows hide the bones of all the lost and wayward souls they’re gonna ride hard upon the sands take their chance in this no man’s land

Bullets Don’t Argue a crow flies the western sky the twitching of a nervous eye the clicking of a chambered round another body hits the ground rider on a desert plain a killer on a southbound train blood stain on the setting sun another hero bites the dust a coffin full of dollars don’t a rich man make when you’re lying dead and lifeless make no mistake when it’s all said and done who has lost or won? chorus: take me dead or alive your life ain’t worth the price take me dead or alive bullets don’t argue you’ll lay down your life a lonely howl in the night a shadow in the firelight the echo of a deadman’s tune a card that spells certain doom a shot of whiskey in a jar vendettas that have gone too far another dollar to be made another bounty to be paid a coffin full of dollars don’t a rich man make when you’re lying dead and lifeless make no mistake when it’s all said and done who has lost or won?

Heads You Die, Tails I Kill You when your life spins on the floor hail the gift from the master of the wicked world if you walk in a no-man’s land don’t take a chance on a losing bet, yeah the hands of fate are tied and bound your fortune fades with a laughing sound toss the coin in the air ahh ahh chorus: heads you die tails I kill you if you live your life on the edge there’s no remorse and no regrets, yeah there’s always two sides of a coin to choose ain’t no way to win when you’re born to lose, yeah time to shake the hand of doom your time is up like the waning moon the coin it spins in the air ahh ahh flip the coin

Leave You in the Dust see the wheels they roll like the heads of yesterday’s promises blown in the wind here I am adrift and alone a casualty of silent ways and words never spoke chorus: the world is hard and the winds are cruel you think you’ve won when you played the fool full speed ahead, my life won’t rust I’ll hit the road and leave you in the dust feel the wheels they burn like the sun on sands of the past where you chose to run there you go body and soul distant in anguish, buried in gold chorus: the world is hard and the winds are cruel you say you’re done and I am the fool full speed ahead, my life ain’t bust I’ll hit the road and leave you in the dust break chorus: the world is hard and the winds are cruel you think you’ve won when you played the fool full speed ahead, my life won’t rust I’ll hit the road and leave you in the dust hit the road and leave you in the dust hit the road and leave you in the dust
6.
Trail of the Snake snakes they crawl into our lives among us all they slither and writhe making their way through the ages of time they crawl from holes in the ground where the sun could never be found their venom it flows from an endless well chorus: if you swing from the gallows if you hang by the road [what price will you pay?] you ain’t a saint or a sinner just a man without soul [soul] if you trade a dollar for a handful of hate [what is it worth to you?] just carry on down the trail of the snake they come in the form of a friend turn your back and they will descend draining your life to the very end they prey on smiles of a child have their way with the lost and the wild don’t look in their eyes they’re black pools of evil their wicked fangs aim to betray stay away from the trail of the snake they’ll leave you cold, all alone don’t let them crawl into your home

The Worm 04:01
The Worm belly up to the bar and give me shot of your best stuff cause this dust in my throat is turning to brick make it some of that mexican mojo you’ve got hidden there down below I can hear him callin, I can hear him beg drink me like the water from this desert land I don’t need no chaser, I don’t need no lime just tip the glass and let that motherfucker fly glass in one hand, flesh in the other queen of the night on the day of the dead let’s raise the bottle and wager a boast who gets to have this heavenly host chorus: worm (x3) as I look out across the bar’s hollow gut rafters climb the walls like rib bones sultry dancers move like cobras to the sound of a skeleton band I can hear him whisper, I can hear him call every poker player in this dirty hall he’s the garden viper, he’s the mongrel’s teeth hair of the dog baby is all you need cards in one hand, glass in the other drink up tomorrow we might be dead god’s little children are howlin like ghosts come to wet their grave-thirsty throats remember the worm, the promise he keeps bullfighters die and women weep break out the bottle and I’ll show you what I mean sell your soul for smoke and a drink place your little lips around the neck swallow the worm baby I’m your man

Night of No Tomorrows I remember the day when waves of blackness filled my sorrowed head I was a hit by a cloud in a clear blue sky striking overhead no thunder, no warning, one minute to the next everything had changed the rain poured down like a wall of tears flooding in my veins she came to me not long ago, autumn in her eyes I remember the night so clearly now, I was mesmerized her black dress flowed like a mourning veil as she walked out of a dream and in her face an angel’s grace like nothin I’d ever seen chorus: now she’s gone whoa whoa whoa she’s gone night of no tomorrows on city streets and delta roads we traveled far and wide where she fell into my arms and laid down by my side we listened to the morning birds whose cries were nevermore and laughed into the deepest night upon the misty moors I stand in the dark on a night of no tomorrows lost in the fog on the shores of hollow sorrows search for the light in the black of empty spaces I yearn with a fear in my heart now a rock of heavy sadness weighs inside of me so that when they bury me beneath that river tree my blood and bones will turn to dust and slowly wash away and all that’s left there is that stone of sorrowful remains chorus: now she’s gone whoa whoa whoa she’s gone night of no tomorrows

Cursed 03:48
Cursed on a night just like tonight when the moon is full and bright that’s when we come ridin to your town we cross the bridge undead like horsemen without heads dealin out a deadly dose of sound echoes of doom rise from the tomb chorus: we’re cursed we’re cursed to play by the devil’s hand guitars under his spell we’re cursed we’re cursed six-string vendetta listen to our music wail we walk upon your streets like poison from a sting scorpions from the mouth of hell at the point of no return where bodies start to burn our witchery consumes you with its spell phantom guitars sound the alarm it was long ago we met him on the road we made a deal and in our blood we signed now you hear the screams from our haunted strings our blackened souls forever in this bind phantom guitars sound the alarm there’s only debt to pay in darkness we must play or by morning take his prize Satan’s eyes never lie leave our souls to die

Running From the Sun she came without a kiss blood stains upon her wrists so cold she said take me home her dress fell to the floor come close my virgin whore take it slow, the darkness grows I am the nameless eternal pain prince I am the day’s forgotten one chorus: running from the sun (x3) morning flame it burns in her a price for love at every turn she said, I think I’m dead now I take my dying bride on eternal nightwing ride she flies away from life I am the darkest lover’s secret I am the snake’s scarlet tongue I am your prince of pain I will be your everything turn you inside out steal the words from in your mouth in darkness we are one, hidden from the sun where we listen to them wail as I take you away from your yellow hell running from the sun

Eldorado 03:50
Eldorado a mystic vision haunts my soul it’s burned into my breast a glimmer of a golden life beyond this endless quest I’ve searched for it so far and wide across the shadowed land and when I’d reached that hallowed ground it disappeared again... like Eldorado Eldorado for all my life I’ve sought the things that others dared to dream I’ve conquered distant mountains and I’ve followed hidden streams I’ve never let them stop me from seeking what I need my strength and dedication is not a fool-man’s greed come and take it it calls me in the night come and take it some things are worth the fight chorus: Eldorado the promise of your gold Eldorado your mark upon my soul I ride the roads in sleepless hours late into the night I crossed the thirsty deserts when morning brings the light to find the rumored riches hidden in your depths like splendid spires of golden tears that heaven surely wept come and take it it calls me in the night come and take it some things are worth the fight, the sacrifice come and take it “you’re here,” the shade replied yet when I looked again it vanished from my sight, into darkest night chorus: Eldorado the ecstasy of gold Eldorado your mark upon my soul
