Southern Son so long you’ve been waiting for this day pull the reigns, break chains, it’s time to have your say you’ve been running for so long it’s time to stop and make a stand, steady and be strong each day it grows a little darker with each night misunderstood ghost of the past still haunting you it just goes on and on and on chorus: burn burn southern sky you’ve got the fire of midnight in your eyes burn burn southern son soon they will know that you are the one years gone, the future’s in the past deeds are done, the time has come, now it’s moving fast ride hard, the battery of hooves striking distance, turn and face, time to take what’s yours each day it grows a little harder with each hour come to pass sins of the father still following you it just goes on and on and on chorus no one can ever hold you down respect is all you ever need, listen to the crowd fight on, the night has just begun price to pay, don’t be afraid, it’s in your blood each day it grows a little darker with each night misunderstood ghost of the past still haunting you it just goes on and on and on chorus

Ghost of the Past there was a girl I knew from life not long ago I took a walk with her along a winding road we lost our way that day and she never made it back her candle's burning still, but the world has turned to black can you hear my earthly call? I 'm still reeling from the fall ghostly spirit now you haunt me every night your apparition there in the last dim rays of light you appear ethereal and chill me to the bone victim of passion now you’re so far from home you've got me gasping for some air I reach to hold you you're not there chorus: angel of darkness ghost of the past haunt me deadly ghost of the past ghost of the past when the night air sings and the fiery phoenix spreads her wings I come to her in chains on my bended knee her fading form is lost in the shadows of the night eternal there she walks beyond my mortal life spirit trapped inside my walls I hear her moaning in the hall chorus chorus

Devil’s Comin Round lie down lie down they say the devil’s comin round all wicked men are gonna hang it’s the law of the land there’s a bounty on my head and I hear him comin for me I was drunk, it was dark when I stabbed you right through the heart I felt the wind, I felt the rain I felt a chill down in my veins there was black there was red a feeling of dread in those tears that were shed no one ever knows what darkness can hold there ain’t no salvation in regret chorus: lie down lie down they say the devil’s comin round pray that he doesn’t come for me he’s the law of the land there’s a sixgun in his hand lord, will I ever be set free? I was born, a bastard son like my mom, I had no love my troubled life is all I had only shame, pain and regret there was black there was red a feeling of dread now I face the law of the land in black and white no question that night there ain’t no raisin’ the dead chorus lie down lie down they say the devil’s comin round all wicked men are gonna hang it’s the law of the land there’s a bounty on my head and I hear him comin for me

Cuchillo 04:47
Cuchillo the desert sun burns hot the taste of water gone from our lips Sunday to Sunday we ride into danger gone so long on this trip so many miles we have roamed out on an endless road no family left to remember me no woman waiting at home chorus: we are companions we ride together like brothers to conquer this hard road wherever you go I will follow no matter where it goes where you go I will go cuchillo in the dying December the cold works into our bones so many miles we have traveled lost but never alone now that our youth has betrayed us our faces belie the years we’ve long ago forgotten what the hell we are doing here chorus abandoned by the cause so long we've been gone searching some distant Eldorado forgotten but not alone cuchillo

I Am the Night I am the night, despiser of light I fall over you in the blink of an eye the tunnel of love is flickering dim as the blood in your veins is runnin so thin shadows of body and soul a command over life that no one else holds I’m stained by the dirt of the grave pray all you want but I won’t go away twilight descending, I vanquish the sun there’s nowhere to hide, nowhere to run a demon of opiate dreams you hear my whisper as loud as a scream chorus: I am the night say your goodbyes this is the hour darkness devours the pain just call my name I am the night, deceiver of sight forever in darkness, death is denied in the tunnel of love my rats make their home we measure your worth by the flesh that you will sow chorus this omen of ill, you know it so well know it by heart, by touch and by smell I am the final demise make no mistake when you gaze into my eyes chorus just call my name
7.
Black On Black of darkness I was born in the lonely arms of doom far from the heat of light in a silent shuttered room from ashes I arose in shadows I was bred by the wickedness of wolves where angels fear to tread I’m waiting for you in blackness I survive on living flesh and bone singing hymns of discord in a treachery of song I’m waiting for you chorus: black on black I carry the darkness on my back black on black locked away from the world in a charnel house of pain whispering your name as I lie here in wait from ashes I arose in shadows I was bred just look into my eyes it’s evil without end I’m waiting for you chorus I’m waiting for you chorus

Blood, Bullets, and Whiskey blood, bullets and whiskey it’s Saturday night and we just got to town feel like tearin it up tonight got a two-way ticket on a one-way ride gonna find me a bar, gonna find me a fight chorus: blood, bullets and whiskey everybody’s drinking, two shots down make a double so I can catch up this old bar looks like it’s in for some trouble it’s one of those nights when I just can’t get enough chorus come on now, let’s do this right hit the ground or run for your life the moon is full and we’re all lit up we’re gonna burn this place brighter than bright chorus

Revenge of Dirty Sanchez well guess who's back in town? it ain't the boys Lizzy’s talking about it's Dirty Sanchez and you know his sign they say he's back to reprise his role like a gravedigger workin a new hole diggin up dirt as the shovel goes deeper in so put up the target and back on up he'll hit the bull’s-eye and make his mark chorus: burnin down your ring of fire blazin up that dusty trail south of the border it ain't no sin open the backdoor and let him in let him in and he'll do his magic you know his style is always to brag it but not with a word not even a slip he prefers a girl with a stiff upper lip revenge of Montezuma came first but Sanchez has another curse you never know til you try it his way don’t let the fun go to waste so put up the target and back on up he'll hit your bull’s-eye and make his mark chorus dirty sanchez at night when the sun goes down that’s when he comes to your town shootin his gun, he knows what he likes cards in the front, liquor behind who cares about the law it’s the ultimate booty call he don’t like the romance he don’t like the love just gettin dirty down in the mud so put up the target and back on up he'll hit your bull’s-eye and make his mark chorus
10.
Stick To Your Guns if they shatter your hope and condemn you to die don’t listen to them it ain’t nothin but lies life on the run, you answer to none you can break the spell stand or fall, break down the walls and send them straight to hell chorus: you gotta fight stick to your guns fight your back to the sun fight stick to your guns and rise above they condemn your soul to the shadows of night where others have failed you’ll stand up and fly line in the sand, steady your hand deceivers all beware scatter the bones of faithless clones go where eagles dare chorus chorus

Tombstone 05:02
Tombstone at the end of the road when the shadows are long and the twilight closes in you must look down deep into your heart face the frailty under the skin no deed goes unpunished no life comes without a finish at the end of the road where there’s no second chance when the blood is spilled and your life runs out there’s nowhere left to hide confess your sins and tell your secrets for there is little left of time no man is unworthy we’re all the same in the end when your time has come you pray or repent chorus: tombstone only the name will remain tombstone down by your grave when the cold of the earth opens wide and calls you deep inside who will be there to remember the time you spent here alive memory is all that remains only a stone with a name at the end of the road you draw your final breath chorus chorus

Black-Lung Revival way down south where the backbeat crawls through the mud thicker than blood we gather round to praise the sound oh brothers and sisters have you heard? we are all just sinners here in the eyes of the world so join together with me now and let our voices, our voices be heard we’ve come so far but we’re still the same they will listen, we will say stand among us, hands to the sky and tell the world it’s ours tonight smoke is risin from these halls see the writing on the walls a thousand souls burnin bright praise the power of our might chorus: it's a black-lung revival coursing through our veins it's a black-lung revival from the underground, let's go insane when the clock strikes heaven above and the judgment comes to call how many here will still be standing to champion the cause? listen close the words I say and take them well to heart there’s power inside ourselves there’s a brand new way to start we’ve come so far but we’re still the same they will listen, we will say stand among us, hands to the sky praise the power of our might our voices echo in these halls feel the tremble of the walls a thousand souls burnin bright the underground will rise tonight chorus chorus
